    The purpose of this study is to examine investors’ perceptions about investing in crypto-currencies. We think that investors trust in crypto-currencies is largely driven by crypto-currency comprehension, trust in government, and transaction speed. This is the first study to examine crypto-currencies from the investor’s perspective. Following that, we discover important antecedents of crypto-currency confidence. Second, we look at the government's role in crypto-currencies. The importance of this study is: first, crypto-currencies have the potential to disrupt the current economic system as the debate is all about impact of decentralization of transactions; thus, further research into how it affects investors trust is essential; and second, access to crypto-currencies.

    Indian corporations' risk management practises are examined in this study. Enterprise-wide risk management (ERM) implementation can be broken down into three broad categories: enabling factors in the organisation, ERM practises, and ERM effects. In literature, each of the elements has been discussed in detail; however, it is desirable to link the elements in a more complete manner. More than a dozen ERM practises and enabling factors were surveyed from a sample of 106 senior executives in this study. Three main components can be used to explain ERM practises: the Risk Management Structure, the Risk Records, and the Risk Activities. Statistical tests reveal that public and private sector practises differ. Executives in the service sector had a clear advantage over their counterparts in the non-service sector when it came to risk management practises. It is hypothesised that each component has a number of enablers, such as management information systems (MIS) and enterprise resource planning (ERP). Enabling factors for ERM implementation should be bolstered, and practises from the service sector and public or private sector enterprises should be adopted to ensure success, according to a new study

    While there are different approaches to organizational and management research, although a naturally researcher is drawn to a specific type of modern research environments require flexibility. The nature of the study setting, the objectives sought by the researcher, and the researcher's philosophical beliefs all influence the research methodology used. As a result, researchers maintain a well-balanced perspective across many research orientations while maintaining their chosen philosophical and methodological positions. The objective of the study and the type of approach that best aids the achievement of the objectives are still the most important considerations. And research orientation may not be too focused for someone with diverse experience, exposing him or her to a variety of management and organizational environments. Depending on the method used, some people are positivists or explanatory. Others, however, see a central ground where the approaches to the two extremes are combined, creating a third edge from which researchers can choose. However, for other researchers, ideas about philosophy and attitudes are irrelevant. It is practicality that matters

    As one of the most important components of the Earth's hydrosphere, water consists of an inorganic chemical substance that is colourless, odourless, clear, and transparent. Even though it does not contain any calories or organic nutrients ,each and every type of life needs it. Throughout a person's lifespan, water that offers no immediate threat to their health, including any differences in sensitivity that may happen at various periods of life, is defined as safe drinking water in the 2017 WHO report. On the molecular level, yes. A covalent bond between two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom represents the stable balance of alternative and repulsive forces between the atoms in the compound. On Earth, there are 96.5 percent oceans, 0.9 percent salt water, and only 2.5 percent fresh water. This is the global water distribution (drinking water). Drinking water refers to water that is used in beverages or in the preparation of food. Its daily intake for a healthy person is determined by the amount of physical activity a person engages in and the surrounding environment. Furthermore, developed countries have been extremely well-managed when it comes to their citizens' tap water needs. Third-world countries and on other hand, are the constant victims of acute water shortages and floods. As a result, water and sanitation-related diseases account for 80% of all disease in these countries. As a outcome, the principal goal of this paper is to develop a region-specific and need-based strategic blueprint for the sustainable management of water resources, It could be beneficial in dealing with the basic social rights to food and liquid
