Variational Iteration Method Solutions for Certain Thirteenth Order Ordinary Differential Equations  [PDF]
Tunde A. Adeosun, Olugbenga J. Fenuga, Samuel O. Adelana, Abosede M. John, Ogunjimi Olalekan, Kazeem B. Alao
Applied Mathematics (AM) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/am.2013.410190
Abstract:

In this paper, we extend variational iteration method (VIM) to find approximate solutions of linear and nonlinear thirteenth order differential equations in boundary value problems. The method is based on boundary valued problems. Two numerical examples are presented for the numerical illustration of the method and their results are compared with those considered by [1,2]. The results reveal that VIM is very effective and highly promising in comparison with other numerical methods.

Abstract: Background: Daycare centres/nurseries have become popular because of the need for working mothers to leave young children with caregivers. However, the high poverty level (54% relative and 35% extreme poverty) makes it difficult for disadvantaged parents to pay the high fees charged by the centres. This study describes an attempt to economically empower mothers through the organisation of free early life education in a peri-urban community in Lagos. Objectives: The aim of the study was to examine early life education for under-fives as a means of economic empowerment of mothers and sustainable poverty amelioration. Method: The methodology included a non-randomised selection of 34 disadvantaged mothers by criteria, a prospective intervention utilising community resources to organise early childhood education, an in-depth interview of mothers, and observation of the outcomes over a 5-year period. Results: The result of the study showed that no mother preferred keeping a child older than three years at home. Access to early childhood education gave mothers opportunity to undergo vocational training (1, 2.8%) and take up new/additional jobs (12, 35.3%). All mothers and 32 (80%) of the participating families more than doubled their income, earning up to twenty thousand Naira (approximately $182) per month from the first year of participation. Finally, selection criteria and periodic assessment of immunisation/growth monitoring records of participants’ children improved compliance with primary health care service utilisation. Conclusion: Organisation of early childhood education had the potential for sustainable poverty amelioration through economic empowerment of mothers.

Pan African Medical Journal , 2010,
Abstract: BACKGROUND: Cultural means of pediatric treatment during ill health is a mainstay in Africa, and though urine has been known to contain enteric pathogens, urine therapy is still culturally applicable in some health conditions and also advocated as alternative therapy. The study therefore, is to evaluate the microbial contents and safety of urine.
THEORETICAL ANALYSIS OF FIRM AND MARKET-SPECIFIC PROXIES OF INFORMATION ASYMMETRY ON EQUITY PRICES IN THE STOCK MARKETS
Abosede, A. J.,OSENI, Jimoh Ezekiel
Australian Journal of Business and Management Research , 2011,
Abstract: Asset pricing has remained an issue of interest to scholars, investment managers and analysts without borders. Pricing of equities in environments characterized with imperfect information and determining the effect of information asymmetry on the asset have also remained a challenge. The risk the information uncertainty from the firm poses to the investors and analysts and the risk the information uncertainty from the investment opportunities of the firm poses to the managers need to be measured and incorporated into equity price. This study made an attempt to develop a model from the works of Lowry, Officer and Schwert (2007) and Reber and Fong (2008) for measuring the effect of firm and market-specific proxies of information asymmetry on equity prices in the stock market. The model developed is considered suitable for adoption in developing and emerging economies where information is considered prevalent. In addition to providing a model for measuring the effects of proxies of information asymmetry on equity prices, the study would to literature on the subject of information asymmetry as it relates to equity pricing and stock market.

Abstract:
In 2016, the total estimated paddy production in Nigeria was 17.5 million metric tons (MMT) which is equivalent to 5.7 MMT milled rice. This is 1.3 MMT lower than the projected 7.0 MMT national consumption demands. This implies that Nigeria is progressing towards achieving self-sufficiency in rice if this data is compared with 3.5 MMT milled rice production in 2010. But about 10% - 30% or more of this increase does not reach the final consumers largely due to inefficient postharvest management practices. Huge postharvest grain loss (PHGL) and postharvest grain quality loss (PGQL) have been reported and significant efforts have been made towards reducing them and improving food security, but this is hampered by lack of simple, cost effective, adoptable and well-defined practical postharvest management practices and technologies. This situation has presented huge opportunity for investment and strategic interventions. From the point of harvest till rice reaches the consumers table, rice passes through wide range of unit operations which may have impact on the quantity and quality of the milled rice, these have made value chain actors adopt different practices to manage the process as it passes through the various unit operations. This paper examines the current rice post-harvest management technologies in Nigeria, with attention focusing on the current practices, constraints militating against the improvement of the rice postharvest system and opportunities it presents for improvement taking into account the main contribution of the research and development organizations in solving rice postharvest related challenges and lessons to be learned that will sharpen future direction for sustainable development.

Schizophrenia Research and Treatment , 2013, DOI: 10.1155/2013/769161
Abstract: There is increasing evidence that delay in the commencement of treatment, following the onset of schizophrenia, may be related to the pathways patients navigate before accessing mental health care. Therefore, insight into the pattern and correlates of pathways to mental care of patients with schizophrenia may inform interventions that could fast track their contact with mental health professionals and reduce the duration of untreated psychosis. This study assessed the pathways to mental health care among patients with schizophrenia ( ), at their first contact with mental health services at the Federal Neuro-Psychiatric Hospital Yaba Lagos, Nigeria. Traditional and religious healers were the first contact for the majority (69%) of the patients. Service users who first contacted nonorthodox healers made a greater number of contacts in the course of seeking help, eventuating in a longer duration of untreated psychosis ( ). However, the delay between the onset of psychosis and contact with the first point of care was shorter in patients who patronized nonorthodox practitioners. The findings suggest that collaboration between orthodox and nonorthodox health services could facilitate the contact of patients with schizophrenia with appropriate treatment, thereby reducing the duration of untreated psychosis. The need for public mental health education is also indicated. 1. Introduction Schizophrenia is a severe, chronic, disabling mental disorder, with a lifetime morbid risk of about 1%, and a leading contributor to the global burden of diseases [1]. Despite the availability of effective therapy, there is a huge treatment gap for schizophrenia, with more than 40 million affected people in need of treatment in low and middle income countries [2–4]. Systematic reviews and meta-analytic studies have shown that delay in the commencement of appropriate treatment following the onset of psychosis is associated with more severe symptom profile, worse psychosocial functioning, poorer quality of life, and poorer treatment outcomes in patients with schizophrenia [5, 6]. Efforts at reducing the lag in the initiation of treatment for first episode schizophrenia has led to an increasing research interest in the pathways through which people with the disorders access care, with the view of identifying points of delay and, consequently, potential loci of interventions that could minimize the delay. Pathways to care refer to the sequence of contacts an ailing person makes with services provided by individuals or organisations, prompted by the effort of the distressed persons

Veterinary Research , 2012, DOI: 10.3923/vr.2011.77.80
Abstract: House gecko has become almost domesticated in every other homes in Nigeria especially Ibadan metropolis where this study was carried out due to its reduced flight zone. A total of 25 animals comprising 11 females and 14 males were collected for the study. Fresh blood was taken from the ventral abdominal vein into heparinised syringes for haematological analysis. Result revealed plasma protein density (4.709±0.48 g dL-1), haemoglobin concentration (8.127±2.18 g dL-1), red blood cell count (2.287±0.62) *106 μL-1, white blood cell count (1.563±3181.85) *106 μL-1, lymphocytes (68.273±3.17) *103 μL-1 and eosinophils (4.546±1.86) *103 μL-1 and of which values of the females were slightly higher than those of the male house geckos while the PCV (24.000±6.59%), Platelets (1.647±41403.12) *106 μL-1, heterophils (27.182±4.58) *103 μL-1 and monophils (2.636±0.50) *103 μL-1 were slightly higher in males than in female house gecko studied in the five local government areas LGAs in Ibadan metropolis. There were no significant differences in the plasma protein, packed cell volume, hemoglobin concentration, red blood cell counts, platelets, lymphocytes, heterophils, monophils and eosinophils values of both male and female house geckos across the five LGAs while in contrast there was a significant difference in the WBC values of the male and female house geckos across the five LGAs of Ibadan.
