The 2008 Financial Recession was one of the most significant fiscal downturns in the history of the United States.

This may assist administrators to avoid the missteps which sparked this down economy in the future. By reading this paper, readers will also learn about the demographics effected by the recession and the Dodd-Frank Act, which was drafted to combat future occurrences of this nature.

Illicit Activities Beneath the Surface Web: Investigating Domestic Extremism on Anonymous Social Media Platforms

Publié en ligne: 27 Apr 2021
Pages: 27 - 40

Résumé

Abstract

At the beginning of 2021, the Internet was used to spread words to incite insurrection and violence through social media, incited a pro-Trump mob riot into a U.S. Capitol building. Furthermore, due to recent acts of domestic terrorism in Texas, New Zealand, and California, police authorities have begun investigating social media presence that premeditated harmful acts. In all three instances, the shooters posted their manifesto online and had a presence on 8chan. The common thread among all shooters is their identification as a white nationalist and their social media site affiliation with Infinitechan, where they hid their radical ideas. Similarities in the shooters’ profiles include their perceived viewpoints of population groups regarding their political, ethnic, and social identities. This paper will provide insight into the forums where domestic terrorists spread their agendas. It will also set the foundation for further research towards a strategic algorithm that compiles and analyses relevant users’ profiles by using OSINT and data analytics techniques).

The Concept of Waqf-Syirkah for Community Food Security

Publié en ligne: 27 Apr 2021
Pages: 76 - 88

Résumé

Abstract

Food is essential for human survival, and ensuring its availability is critical. Waqf is present as one of supporting institutions that supports food security. This paper aims to see how waqf can contribute to the food security of a community. Waqf, in its sense is an Islamic philanthropic institution that focus on welfare of Muslim. As a Muslim, it is important to safeguard one’s life as stated in Maqasid As Shariah. This paper employs systematic literature review to see the contribution of waqf through syirkah (partnership) for community food security. Syirkah plays its role as a connector between waqf and food security, with farmers at its spearhead. Syirkah is chosen because it is compatible with farmer’s business and waqf may serve to their business sustainability in general, and farmer’s livelihood in particular. The ultimate goal of this concept is to achieve stability in the supply of staple food which leads to its price stability, hence staple food is available and accessible to all. Furthermore, the stability achieved will reduce the burden of government to provide staple food in times of crisis and to promote welfare and better social cohesion of a community.
