Golden Research Thoughts , 2013, DOI: 10.9780/22315063
Abstract: This research paper discusses the Role of ICTin education at school as well as university and higher education level. An information communication technology (ICT) at present is influencing every aspect of human life. It is playing salient roles in work places, business, education, and entertainment. Moreover, many people recognize ICTs as catalysts for change; change in working conditions, handling and exchanging information, teaching methods, learning approaches, scientific research, and in accessing information. Therefore, this research paper discusses the roles of ICTand key challenges of integration to education systems. The paper concludes that regardless of all the limitations characterizing it, ICTbenefits education systems to provide quality education in alignment withconstructivism, which is a contemporary paradigm of learning. Finally, technology is never a substitute for good teaching. Without skilled instructors, no electronic delivery can achieve good results. But neither can traditional classroom teaching, come to that.

Yield and organoleptic characteristics of Suya (an intermediate moisture meat) prepared from three
AB Omojola
African Journal of Biotechnology , 2008,
Abstract: High cost of choice meat used in suya production makes the product an exclusive meat for the rich. In order to make suya (an intermediate moisture meat) available and affordable to the common man thereby increasing their animal protein intake, this experiment therefore become imperative. Meat from the semimembranosus (SM), biceps femoris (BF) and psoas major (PM) muscles were used for the study. The muscles were carefully excised and trimmed of all visible connective tissue. The meat was sliced into thin sheet of 0.15 – 0.30 cm thick and between 5 – 9 cm long. The experiment comprised of three treatments in a completely randomized design. A total of 30 sticks of suya were prepared from each muscle-type. The percent cooking loss was highest (P < 0.05) in the PM (23.91 ± 0.38) as against the values of 20.70 ± 0.36 and 18.52 ± 0.38 obtained for SM and BF respectively. The water holding capacity (WHC) was highest in the SM followed by BF and PM with values of 79.99 ± 2.05, 71.11 ± 8.30 and 68.17 ± 1.72% respectively. BF gave the highest (P < 0.05) product yield (87.72 ± 2.51) while SM and PM gave values that were statistically similar (P > 0.05). SM gave the highest (P < 0.05) values for tenderness, juiciness and overall acceptability. Suya can be produced from other muscles than the traditional SM muscle without compromising quality.
Biotechnology in plant nutrient management for agricultural production in the tropics: The research link
AB Nyende
African Journal of Biotechnology , 2008,
Abstract: The potential benefits of biotechnology are extraordinary and traverse sectors like agriculture, environment, health, industry, bio-informatics, and human resource development. In agriculture, biotechnology research has helped to improve the understanding of diseases, to improve the diagnosis and treatment of diseases, to improve resistance to herbicides/insects/pests/diseases/drought, to improve crop varieties and yields, marker assisted selection breeding, to develop new uses for agricultural products, to facilitate early maturation and to improve food and feed nutritional value. The uncertainties and risks of biotechnology are yet to be fully understood but its possibilities are yet also to be fully exploited for agricultural production. Research has currently linked plant nutrition to biotechnology through plants modifications to obtain improved photosynthetic system and enhanced nutrient uptake. Due to the corresponding higher physiological efficiency of the improved crops via the biotechnological modifications, plant nutrient management can be adjusted appropriately. These adjustments ultimately lead to other potential benefits in agriculture that include reduced labour and capital inputs, improved environmental protection and strengthened rural economies, which can translate into sustained agricultural production.
L’espace public au ras du sol en postcolonie : travail de l’imagination et interpellation du politique au Cameroun
C Abé
Africa Development , 2011,
Abstract: This article focuses on public space as it can be seen from the grassroots level in Africa. The experience of Cameroon under the single party shows how ‘the grassroots’ capitalizes on social imagination and takes an indirect route to political interpellation. The hypothesis upheld here is that observing social practices in single-party Cameroon cannot be reduced to the mobilization of the category of subjection alone without being seriously impoverished, since the social actors evolving on the sidelines do not lack initiative. And these forms of initiative, which are often overlooked, are our focus in this study. The focus is particularly on those that contribute to the construction of a public speech culminating in the critical mediatization of the established order. By public speech, we mean any practice, discursive or not, that has a public function. To study such practices in terms of critic civility, we will draw inspiration from the work of Bakhtine and the everyday sociology of de Certeau. The research focus is on the discovery of the rationale behind the daily collective practices of the people of Cameroon. Thus oriented, the aim of this article is to uncover the political interpellation at work in the ‘ways of speaking’ and the ‘ways of doing’ of the grassroots people. It focuses on various daily operations that are not overtly challenging, but that still express the idea that the people have of the management of matters of public interest. Some use a ‘common stock of available knowledge’, some use imagination and others appropriation after transformation. This article is divided into two parts. The first shows how ordinary people take advantage of vampire stories and rumours to describe the political regime in place and the social order it exudes. The second concerns the practices used by the grassroots people to fool the authorities by doubling what is offered to it in terms of consumption of another meaning that is challenging to the established order.
Application of Higher Diploma Program training skills in classroom instruction: The case of Education Faculty, Jimma University (Ethiopia)
AB Hunde
Ethiopian Journal of Education and Sciences , 2008,
Abstract: This article examines the application Higher Diploma training skills in classroom instruction as well as pinning to the possible bottlenecks that hamper the successful application of the training skills. To this end, graduates of the first two batches, heads of the ten departments operating under the Faculty of Education and dean of the faculty were participated in the study. Multiple instruments with multiple sources were used in data collection in the following order: classroom observation, interview with the corresponding graduate, interview with the heads and finally interviewing Faculty Dean. The study implied that graduates were not applying Higher Diploma Training skills to the expected level. Factors for the failure of implementing Higher Diploma Program training skills at a classroom level attributed not only to the physical constraints such as large class size, lack of learning materials at hand, and mismatch between course content and time allotted but also to the absence of interest from instructors and students side and absence of well organized follow-up support that enforces or reinforces instructors to use the training skills. The study wrapped up with some plausible recommendations that allievate or minimizes the effect of barriers.

Insect vectors of pathogens in selected undisposed refuse dumps in Kaduna town, northern Nigeria
AB Ahmed
Science World Journal , 2011,
Abstract: Eleven species of insects were collected in three orders and seven families, namely Blattidae, Serabidae, Muscidae, Fannidae, Culicidae, Calliphoridae and Psychodidae. Of the three orders, Diptera was represented by five families (Muscidae, Fannidae, Culicidae and Psychodidae) followed by the order Dictyoptera and Coleoptera with one family each (Blattidae and Serabidae respectively). The Family Muscidae had three genera represented by the species Musca domestica, Ophyra leucostoma, and Stomoxys calcitrans while the Families Caliphoridae and Serabidae were represented by two species each. Muscoid flies had the highest abundance of 70.3% (457/650), followed by mosquitos with 6.8% (94/650) and Drain flies 4.9% (32/650). The most abundant species was the house fly Musca domestica within the muscoid family with 47.7% while Onthophagus obliquus from the family Serabaediae had the least abundance with 6 individuals. The occurrence and abundance of these vectors suggests that vector-borne disease transmission is prevalent in Kaduna metropolis. The health implications of the presence of these insects and their role in disease transmission are highlighted. Proper disposal of refuse dumps is recommended to avoid public health problems associated with filth transmitted insects.
