The Role of Head Teacher in Improvisation and Maintenance of School Plants
MA Yusuf, JT Adigun
African Research Review , 2012,
Abstract: The conditions and situation of the physical and infrastructural facilities in the primary schools had marred the attainment of the goal of education for all. The present Primary Education Commission (UPEC) 1999/91 survey indicated that approximately 4.9% of Nigerian primary school have no building, while the survey equally shows that the is a short fall of 64.2% in pupils furniture and 62.5% in teachers' and non teaching furniture, nationwide. It also stressed further that equipment for teaching sciences, sports, Home Economics creative Arts were lacking in majority of the Primary Schools. Moreover, the above situations seem not to have improved in the recent times. Many of the primary school buildings are dilapidated, displaying no window panes or Shutters, no ceilings, plaster peel offs, broken floors and leaking roofs. Poor as these structures are, they are not even adequate and thus two or more streams have to use the same dilapidated class in many cases. This has resulted into overcrowded classrooms with serious implications for teaching and learning in the primary schools in Nigeria. It is against this backdrop that this paper examines the role of head teacher in improvisation and maintenance of school plants in primary schools.

Abstract: We prove the existence of weak solution to a semilinear boundary value problem without the Landesman-Lazer condition.
Necrotizing fasciitis in a plastic surgery unit: a report of ten patients from Ilorin
IA Adigun, LO Abdulrahaman
Nigerian Journal of Surgical Research , 2004,
Abstract: Background: Diffuse necrotizing fasciitis is the most treacherous soft tissue infection particularly because it may masquerade as simple cellulitis, thereby delaying diagnosis and treatment. Necrotizing fascitis correspond to deeper burns and require resuscitation, early debridement and skin coverage. It runs a rapid clinical course. Method: Ten patients with necrotizing fascitis were managed in the division of plastic and reconstructive surgery at the University of Ilorin Teaching Hospital, Nigeria. The hospital records of these patients were reviewed and form the basis of this report. Result: The duration of symptoms ranged between one day and three weeks. Most patients presented with associated high grade fever and rigor. Four of the patients had pre-morbid state which could have predisposed them to the infection. They were managed with intravenous fluids, antibiotics and analgesics, most patients had extensive debridement with subsequent wound dressing before skin grafting. Five patients survived while the remaining five died with a crude mortality of 50%. Conclusion: Early diagnosis, aggressive surgical intervention combined with supportive therapy is crucial to the successful treatment of the disease. If we must reduce the high mortality rate of the condition in our sub-region, early referral to a burns team should be considered as a treatment option by clinicians dealing with such cases.
Reviews of Progress , 2013,
Abstract: There are inadequate researches on online medical education.The premise of this paper was to keep stakeholders aware of the need foronline medical program using existing course management system andresources they ready have to offer the two years basic sciences onlinecourses. The goal of this research was to assess course content managesystem's current usage between faculty and students at colleges. A datafrom a course management system was used to gather usage of facultymembers and students from different colleges. Data suggested that morethan 80% of universities and colleges in the U.S. used contentmanagement system since 2003. The cost of attending medical college inthe U.S. continues to skyrocket. With the existence of web-enhancedcourses and technology on campus and the approval of accreditationagencies, medical colleges can start an online program withoutadditional cost in technology. In other for medical schools to diminish thecost of tuition, medical colleges need to offer all the basic science coursesonline. Online courses would allow students to complete the entire first totwo years course requirements without going to campus. The remainingtwo years would be devoted heavily on clinical rotations.
Reviews of Progress , 2013,
Abstract: A lot of criticisms have been ensued from the introduction andadoption of electronic health records and the meaningful use rules. Thispaper examined the ethical, economical, social and legal issuessurrounding the adoption of meaningful use rule guidelines and theelectronic health records (EHR) among physicians, hospitals and otherhealthcare workers. It was found that details of the meaningful use rulesstill do not appeared to be simplified for potential participants. A moresimplified and concise version should be provided for potentialparticipants in order to avert confusions. It was concluded that the qualityof healthcare and safety of patients were of great concern in the UnitedStates. It was recommended that hospital administrators, healthcareproviders, and healthcare delivery systems should strive to provide safeand quality care for patients in complex environments.
A combustion model with unbounded thermal conductivity and reactant diffusivity in non-smooth domains
Sikiru Adigun Sanni
Electronic Journal of Differential Equations , 2009,
Abstract: In this article, we present a strongly coupled quasilinear parabolic combustion model with unbounded thermal conductivity and reactant diffusivity in arbitrary non-smooth domains. A priori estimates are obtained, and the existence of a unique global strong solution is proved using a Banach fixed point theorem.
Reaction-diffusion system of equations in non-stationary medium and arbitrary non-smooth domains
Sikiru Adigun Sanni
Electronic Journal of Differential Equations , 2010,
Abstract: A system of non-linear partial differential equations describing one-step irreversible reaction, reactant to product, in a non-stationary medium and non-smooth domain is considered. After obtaining the necessary a priori estimates, the existence of a unique local strong solution to the system is proved using a fixed point theorem.
Wild, Wild Wikis: A way forward
Charles Robert,Ranmi Adigun
Computer Science , 2007,
Abstract: Wikis can be considered as public domain knowledge sharing system. They provide opportunity for those who may not have the privilege to publish their thoughts through the traditional methods. They are one of the fastest growing systems of online encyclopaedia. In this study, we consider the importance of wikis as a way of creating, sharing and improving public knowledge. We identify some of the problems associated with wikis to include, (a) identification of the identities of information and its creator (b) accuracy of information (c) justification of the credibility of authors (d) vandalism of quality of information (e) weak control over the contents. A solution to some of these problems is sought through the use of an annotation model. The model assumes that contributions in wikis can be seen as annotation to the initial document. It proposed a systematic control of contributors and contributions to the initiative and the keeping of records of what existed and what was done to initial documents. We believe that with this model, analysis can be done on the progress of wiki initiatives. We assumed that using this model, wikis can be better used for creation and sharing of knowledge for public use.
Linguistic Choices and Gender Roles in New Nigerian Literature: An Examination of Alpha Emeka’s The Carnival and Razinat Mohammed’s A Love Like a Woman’s and Other Stories
JT Dooga
African Research Review , 2009,
Abstract: This paper is premised on the Systemic Functional approach to text analysis, which considers a work of art as a consequence of the social milieu (Senkoro, 2005). Specifically, it takes Hasan’s (1985) view that without linguistics, the study of literature remains a series of personal preferences. It examines how power is invested along gender lines through language choice in two works of fiction, both by new Nigerian writers: Emeka’s novel The Carnival and Mohammed’s short story collection A Love Like a Woman’s and Other Stories. It seeks to achieve two objectives. The first is to evaluate whether, and to what extent new Nigerian writing is holding onto, or shifting from established ideologies regarding the portrayal of women in fiction, especially by male writers. The second is to compare the two works, The Carnival, by a male writer, with A Love Like a Woman’s written by a female, to see whether and to what extent the two differ in their portrayal of characters of the two sexes. The final part of the paper draws conclusions on the basis of the evidence from the two books that would help in validating the notion of gender positioning in Nigerian fiction, or re-assessing same. The paper argues that such an examination of broader contextual properties oftexts affect their description and interpretation, and concludes that by thus determining positions available within texts, we can make a proper evaluation of how gender is grounded in new Nigerian writing.
Unlearning as a Process of Learning: Practical Aspects in Teaching English in a Second Language Setting
JT Dooga
African Research Review , 2010,
Abstract: This paper addresses pedagogic issues relating to the teaching of English in a second language setting. It argues for a descriptive and functional approach to language teaching and learning and insists that traditional approaches, which tend to be mainly prescriptive, are no longer adequate for addressing the communicative needs of today’s language learners. Specifically, it opines that learning English entails “unlearning” the discomfort we are taught about such things as double negatives. It proposes a dynamic, interactive and collaborative approach to English language teaching and learning. Results of actual classroom experiments are presented to illustrate how instructors can determine the actual language needs of students and thus tailor their instructions to address these. The experiments also support the central argument in this essay that predetermined department-based syllabi might need to be regulated to make them functional to the needs of specific students. As the results of the experiments show, a failure to make such functional alignments could produce students who are only notionally educated but functionally empty.
