Using Multiple Regression Analysis in Modelling the Role of Hospitality Industry in Cross River State
EI Eja, AO Ajake, JE Otu, BN Ndomah
African Research Review , 2011,
Abstract: The overwhelming and rapid growth of hospitality (hotel) industry is of great concern especially its role in the economy of Cross River State. This paper seeks to evaluate the contribution of hotel industry in each of the socioeconomic variables such as employment, revenue generation, urban development, tourism development and local economy development using multiple regression analysis. The result shows that 0.2, indicating 21.50% of the total variations in hospitality (hotel) industry have influenced socioeconomic development of Cross River State. The overall fit of the regression was 6.65 statistically significant at 1% confident coefficient level while 0.275 showed auto correction insignificant among the errors. However, findings have shown that even though much has not been felt from the hospitality (hotel) industry. The analysis shows that the industry has much to offer socioeconomically to the growth of Cross River State if properly managed.

Pakistan Journal of Social Sciences , 2012,
Abstract: The survey research design was used to measure professional women s adjustment strategies to their spouses attitude towards their job and examine how they cope with punctuality to their work. Two null hypotheses were also formulated, using a stratified random sample of 450 professional women. A survey questionnaire was designed to elicit responses from the respondents on how they cope with their spouses attitudes to their jobs and how they cope with punctuality to their jobs. Results of the analysis reveal that majority of the women choose to explain their job circumstances to their husbands and discuss the nature and reason for overtime. With regards to punctuality, they make preparations at night for the next day. Furthermore, the result on differences in adjustment patterns, reveal that professional women in the banking sector adjust better to spouses attitude than their colleagues in the other sectors under study, while the professional women in the government ministries and schools adjust better with regards to punctuality to work. Based on the findings, it was recommended that sectors where professional women exhibit lower adjustment capacity; policies should be relaxed to facilitate their balancing between their work and home.

Journal of Geography and Geology , 2012, DOI: 10.5539/jgg.v4n1p257
Abstract: This study evaluated forest management institutions and their initiatives in the rainforest communities of Cross River State. Data were collected through questionnaire survey and participatory research methodologies. Data generated were analyzed using descriptive statistics and one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA). The result of the analysis reveals that community forest management institutions and their initiatives have significant influence on forest ecosystem management than other institutions such as government and non-governmental organizations. The study discovered that community forest management institutions were rated very high in terms of sustainable harvesting techniques, encouragement of forest reservation and monitoring of forest management programmes among others. The other institutions were rated low in their influence on forest management. Based on these findings, the study suggested some remedial measures that will ensure sustainable forest management in the area, such as partnership forest management, alternative income generation opportunities and holistic consideration of the forest lands during management.

Methods: 41 elderly patients in accordance with the corresponding requirements were studied after offering systematic family nursing guidance and surveyed through the questionnaires about the QOL (quality of life) respectively 1 month, 3 months and 6 months after leaving hospital. Results: Compared with that of 1 month and 3 months after the operation, the questionnaire scores for 6 months after the operation were found to have significant improvement, and the differences were statistically significant. Conclusion: Systematic family nursing guidance can effectively improve the QOL for elderly patients with implanted cardiac pacemaker, which makes them spend their old age in comfort and happiness.
Differential Evolution Using Opposite Point for Global Numerical Optimization  [PDF]
Youyun Ao, Hongqin Chi
Journal of Intelligent Learning Systems and Applications (JILSA) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/jilsa.2012.41001
Abstract: The Differential Evolution (DE) algorithm is arguably one of the most powerful stochastic optimization algorithms, which has been widely applied in various fields. Global numerical optimization is a very important and extremely dif-ficult task in optimization domain, and it is also a great need for many practical applications. This paper proposes an opposition-based DE algorithm for global numerical optimization, which is called GNO2DE. In GNO2DE, firstly, the opposite point method is employed to utilize the existing search space to improve the convergence speed. Secondly, two candidate DE strategies “DE/rand/1/bin” and “DE/current to best/2/bin” are randomly chosen to make the most of their respective advantages to enhance the search ability. In order to reduce the number of control parameters, this algorithm uses an adaptive crossover rate dynamically tuned during the evolutionary process. Finally, it is validated on a set of benchmark test functions for global numerical optimization. Compared with several existing algorithms, the performance of GNO2DE is superior to or not worse than that of these algorithms in terms of final accuracy, convergence speed, and robustness. In addition, we also especially compare the opposition-based DE algorithm with the DE algorithm without using the opposite point method, and the DE algorithm using “DE/rand/1/bin” or “DE/current to best/2/bin”, respectively.

International Journal of Clinical Medicine (IJCM) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/ijcm.2018.94022
Abstract: Objective: Meta-analysis was conducted to assess whether combination of traditional Chinese and western medicine could enhance clinical outcomes compared to single western medicine in the treatment of acute pancreatitis (AP). Methods: This systematic review will include prospective and retrospective comparative studies in all languages and evaluate the clinical efficacy of integrated traditional Chinese and western medicine versus single western medicine in treatment AP. Animal studies will not be considered. Published articles were acquired from Jan. 2001 to Dec. 2017 by a comprehensive search in Chinese National Knowledge Infrastructure database (CNKI), Chinese WANFANG database. Exclusion criteria were non-comparative studies, hybrid treatment. The main points include clinical efficacy; carefully evaluating and reviewing the literature and filtering the literature according to inclusion criteria and exclusion criteria. Statistical analyses were performed using software Review Manager (Version 5.0). Publication biases of main results were examined by Stata 12.0. Results: 1262 cases of 1342 cases were effective and the effective rate reaches 94.04% in the group of integrated traditional Chinese and western medicine, while 949 cases of 1223 cases were effective and its effective rate can be up to 77.60% in the group of single western medicine (P > 0.05%, I2 = 0%, Odds Ratio (OR) = 4.98, 95% CI = 3. 79 - 6.54, P < 0.01.). Conclusion: These results suggest that the therapeutic effects of integrated traditional Chinese and Western medicine on AP are better in treatment of AP than that of western medicine alone.
Capitalism, Globalisation and the Underdevelopment Process in Africa: History in Perpetuity
AO Olutayo, AO Omobowale
Africa Development , 2007,
Abstract: Since the incorporation of the Third World nations into the world capitalist system, the underdevelopment process seems to have commenced through the use of liberal economic principles. In spite of the obvious pauperisation of these nations, it seems as if there is no alternative even when indigenous governments are in control of affairs. This paper attempts to show why the underdevelopment process has persisted with capitalism entrenched in the garb of globalisation. It suggests that the way out is for the developing world to control and own their means of survival without which the underdevelopment process shall continue. Of utmost significance however is the need to control the intellectual domain.

AO Okesola, AO Salako
Annals of Ibadan Postgraduate Medicine , 2010,
Abstract: Objective : In bacterial conjunctivitis, clinical presentations are not diagnostic of the causative agent, therefore, microbiological analysis is mandatory for specific treatment option. This study was undertaken to determine the microbiology profile of bacterial conjunctivitis in our environment. Methodology: This is a laboratory-based study carried out in the Medical Microbiology Laboratory of University College Hospital, Ibadan, Nigeria. Conjunctival swabs collected from 365 patients with clinically diagnosed conjunctivitis, were analysed by standard bacteriological methods. Results: Bacterial pathogens were detected in 342 (93.7%) conjunctival samples while 23(6.3%) were sterile. Of the pathogens, 256 (74.9%) were Staphylococcus aureus, 35(10.2%) Coagulase- negative staphylococci, 22 (6.4%) Pseudomonas aeruginosa , 11(3.2%) Escherichia coli, 7(2.1%) Klebsiella species, 5(1.5%) Streptococcus pneumoniae , 4(1.2%) Haemophilus influenzae, 1(0.3%) Proteus mirabilis and 1(0.3%)Neisseria gonorrhoeae . The highest rate of conjunctivitis 96(26.3%) was found among infants and children (0-10years).Resistance rates to most of the tested antibiotics were high. However, 67% of them were susceptible to ceftriaxone while only 39.2% were susceptible to chloramphenicol. Conclusions: This study has recorded high antibiotic resistance in bacterial pathogens of conjunctivitis in this environment; therefore, determining the susceptibility pattern of these pathogens to available antibiotics is crucial to effective management of bacterial conjunctivitis.
