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…

The efficiency of acid modified activated carbon prepared from Sweet Dattock Seeds (Detarium microcarpum) 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 pH, 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 90mins, a decrease in percentage removal of both metal ions…

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…

DETERMINATION OF PHYTOCHEMICALS AND ESSENTIAL MINERALS IN SELECTED GREEN LEAFY VEGETABLES IN MINNA METROPOLIS, NIGER STATE, NIGERIA

 

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…

Glycolysis

The major function of carbohydrates in metabolism is as a fuel to be oxidized and provide energy for other metabolic processes. The carbohydrate is utilized by cells mainly as glucose. The 3 principal monosaccharides resulting from digestive processes are glucose, fructose and galactose.

 

Much of the glucose is derived from starch which accounts for over half of the fuel in the diets of most humans. Glucose is also produced from other dietary components by the liver and, to…

THE COURSE CALLED BIOCHEMISTRY


Even though the term biochemistry, after about 100 years of use, has become commonplace in our language, a
precise definition is difficult and depends on who you ask. Most scientists will agree with the straightforward
definition, the study of life at the molecular level. The word ?biochemistry? has two components, biology and
chemistry, and students of the discipline must be well versed in the fundamentals of both subjects.
Biochemistry can also be defined as:

INTRODUCTION

 

 

During data collections in on-farm research, one encounters situations where there are large numbers of variables comprising the dataset. One of the key steps in data analysis is finding ways to reduce dimensionality without sacrificing accuracy.

nPrincipal component analysis (PCA) is a multivariate technique in data analysis. It can be used for compressing higher dimensional data sets to lower dimensional ones (Davis, 1986).

WHAT IS CORRUPTION?

  Corruption has been  described as the behavior of officials in the public and private sectors, involving improperly and unlawfully enriching themselves and/or those closely related to them, or inducing others to do so, by misusing the position in which they are placed (Agbu, 2003).

BACKGROUND-AIM
Breast cancer is a heterogeneous disease of about four subtypes with distinct clinico-pathological and molecular
features. Information on the serum levels of reproductive and thyroid hormones in the breast cancer subtypes is sparse.
This study is aimed at determining the contribution of reproductive and thyroid hormones to the pathogenesis of
luminal, HER2+ and triple negative breast cancer subtypes

INTRODUCTION

Infectious diseases such as malaria, trypanosomiasis, leishmaniasis, schistosomiasis have huge health, social and economic impact on major populations particularly in endemic regions (Parsons et al., 2015). They are responsible for a high degree of morbidity and mortality. Globally, about 50% of deaths attributed to these diseases occur among the poorest countries of the world (Fuller et al., 2015). In addition, some of these pathogens infect domestic and wild animals, consequently, leading to zoonotic infections (Cook, 2015). Although…

The interactions between Schistosome parasites and their intermediate snail hosts at the molecular level are crucial events that determine the success/failure of a parasite's infectivity (Adema et al., 2012; Webster et al., 2016).  The study of such interactions is currently attracting tremendous attention, particularly in relation to the development of strategies aimed at interrupting parasite transmission (Gray et al., 2012; Cantacessi et al., 2013) and hence Schistosomiasis control (Adema et al., 2012). Although, there are many studies designed…

INTRODUCTION

Biomphalaria glabrata is epidemiologically an important snail species host in the transmission of human schistosomiasis in the Caribbean and South American (Reeves, 2008). This chronic and debilitating disease remains one of the most public health concerns in 74 developing countries, infecting more than 200 million people (Tallima, 2013). Intramolluscan development of S. mansoni larval in the Biomphalaria spp is a complex process involving initial infection of the snail host by the free-swimming miracidium, its subsequent transformation to…

INTRODUCTION

 

  • Diabetes mellitus (diabetes) is a chronic condition which occurs when the pancreas does not produce enough insulin, or when the body cannot use the insulin it produces effectively (Kumaran et al., 2014; Dey et al., 2015).
  • Hyperglycaemia, or raised blood sugar, leads to serious damage to many of the body’s systems.
  • Diabetes is also characterized by disturbances of carbohydrate, fat and protein metabolism.

Workforce Diversity Management and Employee Morale towards  National Development

 

  • Managing diversity and employee morale have had early influences. Management of diversity naturally has been of some concern to organized history throughout the history of civilization… Fayol –Catholic Church

DM  had influence on employee morale in relation to :

  • age,
  • gender,
  • religion,
  • tribe etc.

DM is positive if the strategies were right and negative if they were not properly managed.

ASSESSMENT OF FACTORS THAT ENHANCE THE DEVELOPMENT OF ENTREPRENEUERSHIP ATTRIBUTES IN SELECTED INDIGENOUS FIRMS IN NIGERIA

 

In Nigeria, small-scale businesses represent about 90% of the industrial sector in terms of the number of enterprises.

They also account for 70% of national industrial employment if the threshold is set at 10 – 50 employees; contribute 10% of manufacturing output and a meager 1% of gross domestic product (GDP) as the 2001 statistics put it (Ajayi, 2002).

 Similarly, they have also…

Strengthening the Gender Balance: Women and Decision Making in Oil Producing Communities in Nigeria’s Niger Delta Region

                                             ABSTRACT

  In most Nigerian communities, participation in decision making is gendered, reflecting the structure of the dominant patriarchal ideology. The advent of the petroleum industry in the country has further entrenched the problem by undermining the voices of women regarding the distribution of the benefits of the industry in host communities. This development is a stark contradiction of the efforts…
