From earliest times, the concept of Town Hall (whether as an edifice or just an open
space) had been active in Africa. It was the practice to gather the people of the
community together to discuss salient issues or to give an announcement quite pertinent
to the members of the community.
This practice is still very much alive in contemporary African setting and it still plays a
very active role in fostering peace and unity within and across communities. However, READ MORE Download Staff Profile

must first learn.” Webster’s Universal Dictionary and

Mass communication, as a discipline has over the years gone through series of
impressive and dynamic metamorphoses triggered by the advancement in technology,
depth and dimensions of communication research as well as societal’ endorsement of
the desirability and inevitability of the field of study.
Experts argue that the concept of Mass Communication first appeared during the

Introduction: Features
• A strain is considered “probiotic” if it proves to be safe
and has some basic features which are:
• acid and bile tolerance,
• ability to adhere to intestinal epithelium,
• antagonistic activity towards pathogenic bacteria (Lin et
al., 2006).
Survival of the intestinal transit and, at least, transient
colonization of the intestine appear to be the main
preconditions for microorganisms to be of any beneficial
effect to the host after consumption (Iyer et al., 2010).

ABSTRACT

The characterisation of foreign capital transfers in Nigeria may seem to reflect the theoretical assumption that the transfers would be targeted at capital generative investments and enhance economic growth. But in application, there are contradictions between the theory and practice in Nigeria. This paper is a political economy examination of some aspects of the application of foreign inflows in Nigeria.

Traditionally, trade unions are usually constituted for the purpose of regulating the terms and, conditions of employment of workers. To this extent, whether a union is a trade union or may not generates serious legal controversy. In most developing countries however, trade unions have pushed the frontiers of their assignment beyond mere regulation of terms and conditions of employment of workers. In Nigeria particularly, trade unions have been involved in myriads of activities which do not have…

INTRODUCTION

Flocculants, or flocculating agents are chemicals that promote flocculation by causing colloids and other suspended particles in liquids to aggregate, forming a floc (1). Thus they are widely applied in different industrial processes, including wastewater treatment, downstream processing, food and fermentation processes (2). Although chemical flocculants have been used widely due to their effective flocculating activity and low cost, some of these synthetic flocculant have threats to public health and increase environmental risks (3).

Magnetron sputtering was employed to deposit 0.5 µm of chromium (Cr) film on a sintered NdFeB–based magnet. The corrosion performance of the Cr–coated magnet was analyzed, compared with an uncoated magnet, in 3.5% NaCl solution. Potentiodynamic polarization analysis revealed that the Cr film could shift the corrosion potential more positively and reduced the anodic dissolution of the magnet in the 3.5% NaCl solution. Electrochemical impedance spectroscopy further showed that the Cr film could increase the charge transfer…

INTRODUCTION


Zinc oxide varistors are voltage dependent resistors which exhibits nonlinear current-voltage characteristics. The non ohmic property, current handling capability, transient energy absorption capability, response time and high nonlinear coefficient make it more suitable for voltage surge suppression. Varistors are produced by advance ceramics technology. Different kinds of techniques for its production are available elsewhere (Lagrange, 1991; Harris, 1999).

INTRODUCTION


Significant development has been made in the improvement of the electrical and mechanical properties of zinc oxide varistors since its discovery by Masuka in 1970 (Evbogbai, Ajuwa and Edeko, 2011). Zinc oxide varistors are produced by advanced ceramic sintering process that give rise to structure comprised of conductive ZnO grains surrounded by electrically insulating barriers. These barriers are derived from trap states at the grain boundaries induced by additive elements such as Bi, Co, Pr, Mn (Lagrange, 1991).…

The protection of electrical appliances, installations and personnel against surge voltages resulting from lightning and switching of reactive loads is not new. Benjamin Franklin is a pioneer scientist in the study of lightning (Gupta, 2007). After his famous experiment of flying kite in thunder cloud in 1745, he proved then that lighting stroke is caused by the discharge of electricity. He invented lightning rods for fixation on tall building and grounding it for protection against lightning strokes.

The concept of globalisation implies that the world has become a single place, a global village, with both geographical boundaries and time and space becoming meaningless. Before the 1980s, the notion of globality was strange; concepts such as ‘global governance’, ‘global political economy’, global gender relations’ and so on were virtually unknown. However, today, the idea of globality has pervaded the lexicons of politicians, journalists, social scientist, researchers and even bankers. Their language of discourse…

The theoretical sources of the Marxist framework emanated from three disciplines. These are classical German philosophy, English political economy and French socialism. In the medieval storehouse of social knowledge, the three disciplines represented not only the fulcrum of radical change activism but also, were regarded as the foundation of deep social learning and fundamental epistemology or theory of knowledge of society and human interactions. Hence, a brief excursion is necessary in these universally acknowledged sources…

The Concentrations of Heavy Metals in Selected Vegetables along Landzun River of Bida, Niger State were determined in order to establish the levels of contamination. The Vegetables samples (African Spinach, Jute mallow and Pumpkin) were analyzed for Cd, Cr, Mn, Ni and Pb using Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer (AAS).With the exception of Cr and Pb, the contents of Mn, Cd and Ni were high in most of the samples analyzed when compared to the WHO/FAO standard hence may…

ABSTRACT

For adsorbing Pb and Cr ions from wastewater was studied. Equilibrium adsorption and pseudo-first and second order kinetic studies were carried out. The effects of contact time, solution p, adsorbent dosage and temperature was also investigated and the results showed that the contact time required to reach equilibrium on Pb and Cr adsorption was 90minsH. Maximum percentage adsorption of 84.7% was attained for Pb and 71.2% was attained for Cr. The adsorption process was found to follow…

ABSTRACT

The phytochemical and mineral compositions of selected vegetables in Minna metropolis were investigated using standard procedures. The results of the analysis showed that the concentrations of the secondary metabolites in the selected vegetables were as follows: alkaloids (4.00±2.00 to 9.33±4.16mg/100g), flavonoids (40.00±20.00 to 73.33±11.55 mg/100g), tannins (14.67±4.16 to 33.33±1.53 mg/100g), saponins (4.67±3.06 to 8.00±2.00 mg/100g), Phytates (7.56±4.36 to 68.83±17.47 mg/100g) and oxalate (19.65±0.08 to 34.39±0.28 mg/100g). B. oleracea had the highest amount of alkaloids (9.33±4.16mg/100g) while L.sativa
