Abstract: The issues of manipulation, control, and ‘forced giving’ in the Church context have raised a lot of concern and especially at a time when the moral authority of the Church has been questioned. Indeed, in the wake of the evangelical explosion, con preachers and fake miracle workers have infiltrated and polluted the good news of the gospel. This study aimed at investigating whether spiritual control did exist in the Pentecostal Church setting, and if so, then the effect it has on the performance of Pentecostal churches in Nairobi County, Kenya. The research used a mixed methods design, embracing a concurrent triangulation strategy, and assuming a pragmatic philosophical approach. The target population was the 12891 congregants in the Pentecostal congregations in Embakasi East Sub-County, Nairobi County.

Abstract: In cloud, replication enables automatic, asynchronous copying of objects across buckets. Replication serves two purposes, with the main one being to provide high availability in case nodes or shards fail. Enabling Object Storage replication is as simple as creating a replication policy on the source bucket that identifies the region and the destination bucket to replicate to. After the replication policy is created, the destination bucket is read-only and updated only by replication from the source bucket.

Abstract: Long-term pregnancies are known to increase the risk of stillbirth. Women are commonly given the option of induction of labor after 41 weeks of pregnancy to prevent this unfavorable outcome. This advice is supported by data showing that the risk of stillbirth increases after 41 weeks. However, 1 in 3 stillbirths happen before 41 weeks of pregnancy.The magnitude and consistency of findings by gestational week in various research on the risk of stillbirth in what is considered to be a normal term gestation differ. Matching newborn mortality estimates are imprecise. We did a systematic analysis to determine the incremental weekly risks of stillbirth in term pregnancies that continue versus deliver at various gestational ages. We also examined the week-specific risks of newborn death by gestational age at birth.

Abstract: The field of education has been revolutionized by advancements in big data techniques, enabling educators to gain precise and timely insights into students behavioral patterns. This newfound capability is invaluable for identifying specific student groups that require targeted attention and transitioning from relying solely on qualitative empirical knowledge to incorporating scientific quantitative analysis in student affairs management. To fully harness the potential of this revolution, a meticulously developed system was implemented to apply data mining clustering method in analyzing the campus network behavior of 3,245 students in a particular grade at B University. Over a careful four-year period, a comprehensive dataset comprising 23.843 million Internet access records was collected. Through thorough analysis, it was discovered that the students could be categorized into four distinct groups based on their unique patterns of Internet access. Notably, the study successfully identified 350 students who exhibited remarkably high levels of network usage, allowing for a comprehensive examination of how their academic performance and other achievements were influenced. This research, driven by the power of data, provides a practical and tangible demonstration of effectively utilizing data science in student affairs management. It presents compelling evidence that supports the accurate and scientific development of student affairs management practices by providing robust data support and generating invaluable insights.
