TWO M.SC. THESES PREPARED BY PREVIUOUS BIOSYSTEMS ENGINEERING STUDENTS: Ⅰ) Author’s Name: Arshad Ali Year of defence: 2013 Theses Title: Surface modification of hemp fibre to improve spinning properties. Supervisor name: Dr. Ying Chen & Dr. Mashiur Rahman Number of pages: 101 Number of references: 64 Number of chapters: 05 Number of tables: 22 Number of figures: 40 Description: Hemp fiber contain non-cellulosic materials in the fiber structure and it can’t be spun through the cotton spinning system. Author has investigated to identify the spinning properties of hemp fibers including strength, length and length variation, single fiber entity, fineness, bending modulus, and softness by removing non-cellulosic materials through different chemical and enzyme treatments. The softness of treated samples, with the highest weight loss (%), was found to be improved by about 2.6 times more than the virgin hemp fiber.
THE BANK OF CANADA The Bank of Canada is the Canada’s central bank. It was established in 1935. The governor of the Bank is appointed by the federal government. The current governor is Stephen S.

The main goal of this research is to explain and to evaluate in the light of Walter Benjamin’s philosophy the significance of the fashion industry not only in terms of material and economic progression, but most especially the significance of the abstract phenomenon of fashion. When it comes to this industry, there is a standard notion that it is always related to capitalism and materialism. Nonetheless, in this project, the researcher will highlight that fashion also has immaterial significance. Immaterial pertains to an internal factor that contributes to cultural and self-reflection, plus social and moral emancipation. The framework of this paper will show the gradual shift from the material to the immaterial significance of fashion.
PESTEL ANALYSIS Pestel is a strategic analysis tool used by organizations to scan the macro-environment in which they operates, helps to identify external factors that can affect the organization's business activities and performance (Gockeln 2014). Macro-environmental factors are those that affect clothing industry and the industry have no control over rather than adapting to it. By so doing, it gives ability to differentiate themselves from potential competitors and sustain performance. Table 2 depicted, (PESTEL) Political, Economic, Social/ Cultural, Technological, Environmental and Legal external factors. Political factors: these are examined from the political stability point of view, which covers government policy intervention in the economy, deregulation, taxation changes, as well as the attitude of political parties on the government policy.

The upstream supplier for this product are the suppliers who provide different kind of color, design, and shape of each raw material. Then it heads over to manufacturers to get design to the consumers demand and need. After that it is transported to a warehouse where are are places to get ready to be sent out to a distributor to sell to customers. This product has a return service if the customers feel that the material of the clothes they brought was not up to part thus giving them the ability to return the product as is. The primary information flow is the receipt that is given to the customer and the data that the store retain as data of the goods sold.

Reasons for ICT project failures A number of studies have dealt with the concept of success/failure factors in ICT projects, and some different types of models have been established. A study by Al-Ahmad (2009) believes that any symptom of a project failure should belong to one of the 6 generic types of ICT project failure root causes: project management factors; top management factors; technology factors; organizational factors; complexity/size factors; and process factors as in figure 3 below; Figure 3: ICT project failures root causes Source: Journal of Information Systems Research and Innovation Project management factors The following are key project management factors as highlighted below; • Not assigning the right person to manage the
