Health (Health) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/health.2013.54089
Abstract: Background and Aims: Food is of paramount importance to the sustenance of human health, on that basis this study was initiated with a view to determining bacterial agents associated with the vended foods and to investigating antibacterial resistance of the isolates. Methods: Twelve food samples from vendors were randomly collected from ten locations within Lagos environs. The food samples were analyzed bacteriologically by standard methods. The isolates were identified and subjected to antimicrobial susceptibility testing using standard procedures. Results: The total plate counts of bacteria recorded was between 2.98 × 103 cfu/g in Jollofrice and 4.09 × 104 cfu/g in Salad. Seventy-six bacterial isolates made up of six genera; Escherichia coli, Salmonella Typhimurium, Alcaligenes spp., Klebsiella pneumoniae, Enterobacter spp., Serratia marcensens and Proteus spp. were identified. Most of the bacterial isolates were moderately sensitive to cotrimoxazole, nalidixic acid, amoxicillin and nitrofurantion except in S. Typhimurium with less than 50% susceptibility. Also over 60% of the pathogens isolated were inhibited by ceftazidime, cefpodoxime, and levofloxacin antibiotics and most strains of E. coli
Supply Chain Management (SCM): Its Future Implications  [PDF]

Open Journal of Social Sciences (JSS) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/jss.2014.29040

This keynote paper represents theory of Supply Chain Management (SCM) and its future implications as well as demonstrates chronological prospective of SCM in terms of time frame in different areas of manufacturing and service industries. SCM has been widely researched in numerous application domains during the last decade. Despite the popularity of SCM research and applications, considerable confusion remains as to its meaning. There are several attempts made by researchers and practitioners to appropriately define SCM. Amidst fierce competition in all industries, SCM has gradually been embraced as a proven managerial approach to achieving sustainable profits and growth. Finally, this study demonstrates Educational Supply Chain Management, as the application of SCM in the service industry, which would unlock other applications of SCM in different arenas. Integrated Tertiary Educational Supply Chain Management (ITESCM) model would be verified through Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) Techniques that would describe in this paper. The ITESCM model furnishes stakeholders of the supply chain with appropriate strategies to review and appraise their performance toward fulfillment of ultimate goals, i.e. producing high-ca- liber graduates and high-impact research outcomes, which represent two main contributions, for the betterment of the society.

Synthesis and Polymerization of N,N'-[Bis(4,4'-Hydroxypropyl Methacrylate Phenylester) Pyromellitimide] Thermoset Polymer by Microwave Irradiation  [PDF]

Advances in Chemical Engineering and Science (ACES) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/aces.2016.62019
Abstract: A new difunctional monomer N,N'-[bis(4,4'-hydroxypropyl methacrylate phenyl ester) pyromellitimide] (BHPMEPM), was synthesized by the reaction of the bis(4-carboxyphenyl)-N,N'-pyromelli- timide acid (diacid-diimide), and two molar equivalents of glycidylmethacrylate (GMA). The reaction was carried out by microwave radiation. The presence of difunctional groups, double bond groups, makes the monomer a potential material for obtaining thermosetting product. The curing and thermal stability of the crosslinked products were studied by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and thermal gravimetric analysis (TGA) techniques. The difunctional monomer and its thermoset polymer were characterized by FT-IR, 1H-FT-NMR and CHN elemental analysis.
Perception of and Attitudes toward the Nigerian Federal Population Policy, Family Planning Program and Family Planning in Kaduna State, Nigeria

African Journal of Reproductive Health , 2000,
Abstract: This paper discusses the perceptions of the Nigerian population policy, family planning program and family planning using data obtained from a 1995 survey of 600 Atyap women aged 15–49 years, in Nigeria. Additional qualitative data were obtained from married and unmarried women and men, clergymen, government officials, and respected community elders. The predominantly Christian and rural Atyap community generally accepts modern contraception and the need for family size reduction but considers the “four-is-enough” policy to be unacceptable. Religion may be important in determining the success of the federal government to reduce family size to four children by the year 2000.

Abstract: The Kor a Region is located in the Southeast of Albania and borders Greece and Macedonia to the South and the East. It is a mountainous region with two major lakes, Lake Ohrid, the oldest lake in Europe, which is shared with Macedonia and Lake Prespa which is shared with Greece and Macedonia (100km2 in Albania). If we consider the last years, there is an increasing tendency to improve the tourist facilities and to attract the tourist market which is interested for activities in open nature and relax in fresh and pure air. These demands could be met very well in Korca destination which is characterized by suitable climatic conditions and tourist services. Eventually a combination of development of town tourism and tourist villages helped the sustainability of the development of Korca as tourist destination in general. The main purpose of this paper is to present the using of important - performance analysis in marketing destination for the development of tourism. Highlights: (1) the paper considers multifarious goals of the destination management; (2) a computer booking system is used by hotels and guest houses in the region; (3) the relationship between what a tourists wants to find in a destination and that he finds in fact.

Abstract: FDI are very important especially for the developing countries like Albania. The worldwide competition in attracting FDI is intensified the efforts concerning the reforms in improving the business climate. The efforts done toward the increase of the political stability, improvement of infrastructure, stimulating policies and the establishment of institutions which promote Albania in investors’ community show how much Albania has been trying to attract the foreign investors. The goal of this survey is to study the relation between such indicators as: political stability, GDP per capital, working power, promotion of investments and FDI. The survey contributes modestly in discussing scientifically what is needed for improving the climate of foreign direct investments in Albania.
Financial Incentives and their Impact for Attracting FDI Survey with Foreign Investitures in Albania
Journal of Knowledge Management, Economics and Information Technology , 2011,

World Journal of Nano Science and Engineering (WJNSE) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/wjnse.2016.61002
Abstract: Nanoparticles of Fe3O4 and Fe are chemically synthesized by reduction of Fe(acac)3 using ascorbic acid in controlled condition. It was observed that addition of water during the chemical synthesis process yields Fe3O4 nanoparticles, whereas if the reaction is carried out in absence of water yields Fe nanoparticles—which get oxidized upon exposure to air atmosphere. Fe3O4 (15 ± 5 nm) and Fe/iron oxide nanoparticles (7 ± 1 nm) were successfully synthesized in the comparative study reported herewith. Mechanism for formation/synthesis of Fe3O4 and Fe/iron oxide nanoparticles is proposed herewith in which added water acts as an oxygen supplier. Physico-chemical characterization done by SEM, TEM, EDAX, and XPS supports the proposed mechanism.
