Gunshot Injuries Involving Musculo-Skeletal System at the Federal Medical Centre, Lagos
AA Dada, BO Awoyomi
Nigerian Journal of Surgery , 2010,
Abstract: Background Gunshot injury (GSI) is a common cause of morbidity and mortality in Nigeria. It is important to study the circumstances and type of injuries for policy formulation to reduce its occurrence. Objective This is to study the demographic profile of GSI patients to assist policy design and reduce its incidence in Nigeria. Method This is a two year prospective study of the pattern of GSI to the musculoskeletal system using observer administered questionnaires at a tertiary health centre in Lagos, Nigeria and a review of the outcome of the treatment of these injuries. Results Fifty four patients with gunshot injury to the musculoskeletal system were studied accounting for (10.3%) of the five hundred and twenty four (524) patients with musculoskeletal injuries treated in the hospital during the period under study. The peak incidencewas in the age group 21-30 years and 41-50 years. The limbs (84.1%) were themost affected parts of the body. Policemen (42.6%) and traders (28.9%) were the most commonly affected people. Violent crime accounted for 85.2% of GSI; Low velocity rifles were the commonest weapon of assault (59.3%). Unfortunately a large number of the patients (44.4%) declined orthodox treatment opting for traditional care. Unintentional shooting occurred in only 11.1%of cases. Conclusion Majority of GSI occurred inmale young people especially policemen and traders. The need for local businessmen to use “cashless” transfer of funds needs to be emphasized. Law enforcement officers need more training and better equipment to effectively confront criminal elements. KeyWords: Gunshot injury, musculo-skeletal system
Socioeconomic Factors Associated With Non-Vaccination Of Dogs Against Rabies In Ibadan, Nigeria

Nigerian Veterinary Journal , 2007,
Abstract: Rabies is a zoonotic viral disease that affects human, domestic and wild animals. It is an acute, highly contagious and fatal disease caused by a bullet – shaped, enveloped RNA virus 180-75nm known as Lyssavirus type 1 and marked by a1mg and variable incubation period (Oboegbulem,. 1994). It is transmitted to animals and humans through close contact with saliva from infected animals. Once symptoms of the disease develop, rabies is fatal to both animals and humans (WHO, 200l). In Nigeria where dog bites continue to be the main mode of transmission of the disease to man, it remains a serious public health hazard. (Thorne, 1954; Ezeokoli et al. 1984; Ikede and Adeyemi, 1984). Reliable data on rabies are scarce in many areas of the globe, making it difficult to assess its full impact on human and animal health (WHO 2001). Since dog has been established as the predominant vector of rabies in Nigeria, the most logical and cost – effective approach to rabies control is elimination of stray and owner less dogs combined with a programme of single mass immunization in the shortest possible time, at least 80% of the entire dog population (WHO, 2001). The retrospective dog rabies vaccination evaluated at Ibadan carried out by Adeyemi (2000) showed that there is low response of dog owners to routine control of dog rabies by immunization. Effective, practicable and acceptable control strategy can only be put in place after the socio-economic facts associated with dog owners in each community have been studied. This paper reports the socioeconomic factors associated with Non-vaccination of dogs in Ibadan city, Nigeria.
Price Competition Among Retailers Of Coca Cola Products In Ibadan Metropolis, Nigeria

International Journal of Sciences : Basic and Applied Research , 2013,
Abstract: The study was carried out on price competition among retail marketers of Coca-Cola products in Ibadan metropolis. A total of one hundred and ten retailers’ was randomly sampled from three Local Government Areas in Ibadan. Ordinary Least Square regression model was used for the analysis of the study. The findings of the study were that there were price variation in the Coca-Cola retail market that is monopolistically competitive in nature, and that these price variations were influenced by municipality characteristics, market conditions and store characteristics. It is therefore, recommended that more entries of retail marketers should be encouraged to reduce the monopolistic powers of the few retail marketers in the business.
Monopoly and Economic Efficiency: Perspective from an Efficiency Wage Model  [PDF]
Bo Zhao
Modern Economy (ME) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/me.2011.25092
Abstract: The objective of this paper is to analyze the efficiency consequences of monopoly from the perspective of an efficiency-wage model based on Shapiro and Stiglitz (1984). An important innovation of our model is that a firm can raise the probability that a shirking worker is detected by increasing its effort or investment in the monitoring of workers. By comparing with the competitive equilibrium we find that monopoly is associated with higher unemployment rate and less monitoring. Surprisingly, however, monopoly is not necessarily dominated by perfect competition in terms of economic efficiency.
In Search of the Effects of Competition on Unemployment: Evidence from OECD Countries  [PDF]
Bo Zhao
Journal of Service Science and Management (JSSM) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/jssm.2011.44051
Abstract: This paper explores the empirical relationship between unemployment rate and product market competition in eighteen OECD countries through three sets of quantitative analyses. We find that the effect of competition on employment depends on the existing competition intensity and the relationship between the unemployment and competition appears to be inverted-N shape—in countries where existing competition intensity is either high or low, an increase in competition tends to reduce unemployment rate significantly; but for countries where existing competition intensity is moderate, intensified competition is more likely to increase unemployment rate significantly.

Smart Grid and Renewable Energy (SGRE) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/sgre.2013.42026
Abstract: In industry development strategy of electric vehicles, apart from concerns on the development of electric vehicles, we also need to consider the issue of charging facilities construction. Firstly, through analysis, this paper discusses the importance of AC charging points for electric vehicle development. By studying existing AC charging points on the market, it presents a low-cost smart AC charging system to reduce the cost investigated by power companies and operational bodies when laying of a large number of AC charging points. Compared with the conventional one, the proposed system has prominent features of low cost, small footprint and low investment.
Positive Solutions for a Boundary Value Problem with a Derivative Argument  [PDF]
Bo Sun
Journal of Applied Mathematics and Physics (JAMP) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/jamp.2013.14014

In this paper, several existence results of multiple positive solutions are obtained for a boundary value problem with p-Laplacian, by applying a fixed point theorem in cones. The interesting point is that the nonlinear term f is involved with the first-order derivative explicitly.

Predicting the Growth in Tree Height for Building Sunshine in Residential District  [PDF]
Bo Hong
Open Journal of Forestry (OJF) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ojf.2015.51007
Abstract: Residential greening constitutes a significant portion of the urban environment. Trees, as the largest entities in the tree-shrub-herb greening system, are the best choice for residential afforestation. Hence, tree arrangement in green space between buildings is significant, for which may exert negative impact on building sunshine. This study takes He Qingyuan residential area in Beijing as a case study to predict the growth in tree height between buildings to meet good sunshine requirements. The procedures were draw as follows: 1) models including building layout and trees were built using computer-aided design (Auto CAD). Afterwards, according to tree crown shape, tree height limits were determined for the same building layout; 2) and after that, the growth in tree height was predicted using the nonlinear height-diameter functions to meet the good sunshine requirements. The results allow us to determine which trees to plant between buildings in that the designers can predict the effects of future tree growth on building sunshine.
Zero Point Energy Effects on Quantum Electrodynamics  [PDF]
Bo Lehnert
Journal of Modern Physics (JMP) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/jmp.2015.64048
Abstract: The vacuum is not a state of empty space, but is populated by electromagnetic fluctuations at a lowest nonzero level, the Zero Point Energy (ZPE). As distinguished from conventional theories, such as that of the Standard Model, the present revised quantum electrodynamic theory (RQED) includes the ZPE in its field equations. This leads to new results far beyond those obtained from conventional theories such as those by Dirac and Higgs. Thus, the present theory results in massive elementary particles from the beginning, being independent of the theory by Higgs. This paper describes the background and results of RQED, summarizing the weak points of conventional theories, the unification of included fundamental concepts, the present basic field equations, new obtained results, and special points of experimental support. In other words, the new points stressed in this paper are in particular the relation between a nonzero electric field divergence in the vacuum and the ZPE, and a number of new experimentally supported results due to a nonzero ZPE energy density in the same state.

Modern Economy (ME) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/me.2015.64044
Abstract: Since the establishment of China’s capital market, it has been imperfect. Many listed companies misappropriating the capital market, and some of them want to expand the size through the capital market. It seems that enhance corporate value is impossible, too. However, companies want bigger and stronger cannot do without a strong leverage of the capital market, and enterprises to enhance their value can be counterproductive in the capital markets, improve the efficiency of capital markets. This paper analyzes Kangmei Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd, and the relationship between its financing and value growth in the Chinese capital market, research results exist mutually reinforcing mechanisms between capital market efficiency and core competitiveness of enterprises.
