Soft Sediment Deformation Structures in the Maastrichtian Patti Formation, Southern Bida Basin Nigeria: Implications for the Assessment of Endogenic Triggers in the Maastrichtian Sedimentary Record  [PDF]
Solomon Ojo Olabode
Open Journal of Geology (OJG) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/ojg.2016.66036
Abstract: Detailed fieldwork carried out in the southern part of Bida Basin, Nigeria, allowed the documentation of soft sediment deformation structures (SSDS) in the Maastrichtian Patti Formation. The aim of this study is to examine the sedimentary successions, describe and analyse these deformation features, discuss their deformation mechanisms and potential triggers. The Maastrichtian Patti Formation is composed of lithofacies interpreted to have been deposited in tidal and fluvial sedimentary environments. Soft sediment deformation structures recognised in the tidal sediments were clastic dykes, load cast, isolated sand balls, dish-and-pillar structures, convolute lamination, diapiric structures and recumbent folds. Severely deformed cross beds, ring structures, associated sand balls, normal folds and recumbent folds were identified in the fluvial sediments. SSDS recognised were interpreted to have been caused by effects of liquefaction and fluidization. Field observations, facies analysis and morphology of the SSDS indicate that there are relationship between the depositional environments and SSDS. Endogenic processes are considered as the trigger agents and they are represented by rapid sedimentation and overloading, impact of breaking waves, pressure fluctuations caused by turbulent water flow, cyclic stress and current generated by storm waves and changes in water table. The present study did not identify exogenic processes as trigger agent. The occurrence of SSDS in southern Bida Basin strongly favoured a non-tectonic origin but a clear relationship high energy processes in tidal and fluvial depositional environments.

Research Journal of Applied Sciences , 2012,
Abstract: Cattle transaction in Nigeria is a very lucrative business that has contributed significantly to the nation`s economic growth. Most developing countries where cattle business strives have witnessed many setbacks as a result of the prevailing political, environmental, socio and economical factors. Cattle dealers are susceptible to attack by armed robbers and conveying cow from place to places pose high risk interns of road safety. With deeper penetration and spread of Internet, more and more online transaction applications are becoming available. In this study, a framework for the implementation of a functional e-commerce for cattle business using Nigeria market as a case study is presented. The study focus is on a market place for cattle business on the internet. The architectural framework is christened e-cattle. The decision variables that constitute the content of the site were presented. The relational database model of the e-cattle was also presented. Apache, php and Mysql server are considered good for its implementation. It addresses concept such as the cattle business in Nigeria in a nutshell. A wide range of initiatives for e-payments over the internet and wireless networks which have been developed by a large number of payment service providers, including financial institutions and new providers of payment services comprising technology and telecommunication companies such as e-money schemes, personal online payment services and prepaid cards were presented. The E-cow which is based on the Internet is expected to bring together the buyers and sellers of cattle and cattle related goods and services.
Modeling a Distributed Database System for Voters Registration in Nigeria

International Journal of Computer Science Issues , 2011,
Abstract: The Independent National Electoral Commission, Nigeria is characterized for managing large volume of dispersed data making distributed data processing a necessity. When voter rolls are error-ridden and a quarter of eligible voters cannot vote, registration laws are not only failing their primary function of ensuring that voters are qualified to vote but also acting as barriers to citizens democratic participation. The traditional voter registration methods employed by many developing countries for periodic elections have many associated problems such as incomplete, inconsistent, unavailability and erroneous records. This article presents an application of distributed database system for a complete and continuing voter registration in Nigeria. The system has its component parts physically stored in a number of distinct real databases at a number of distinct sites. Each site has its own local real databases, its own local users, its own local DBMS and transaction management software including its own local locking, logging, recovery, replication, fragmentation, e.t.c. software and its own local data communication manager. Distributing data across sites within state and local government allow voters data to be resident where they are generated or most needed, but still accessible from other sites within the state and local government areas. Java and Oracle were the developmental platform of the system. Some important relations for the systems were presented and possible management transaction and operation models were presented. The system require a Unix/windows NT operation system in a network environment such as provided by communication networks in Nigeria and an internet connection.

Abstract: Objective To investigate the effects of telmisartan on the blood glucose, blood lipid, blood insulin, and insulin resistance in the hypertensive patients with dyslipidemia, and also its effect on controlling blood pressure. Patients and Methods A total of 96 hypertensive patients (34 females, 62 males) with dyslipidemia were included (mean age 51.2±9.6, range 42-65 years). Patients were randomized to receive either telmisartan 80 mg/day (n=46) or enalapril 10 mg/day (n=50) for 6 months. The levels of blood pressure (BP), heart rate (HR), and biochemical data were measured before therapy and at the end of the 3-month treatment and 6-month treatment, respectively. Meanwhile, insulin resistance was evaluated by using a homeostasis model assessment of insulin resistance (HOMA-IR) and insulin sensitivity (HOMA-IS). Results In the telmisartan group, the mean blood pressure was obviously lower than that of pre-therapy (P< 0.05), and the levels of triglyceride (TG), HOMA-IR, and HOMA-IS were all obviously lower than those of pre-therapy and of the enalapril group at the end of the 3-month-treatment period (P<0.05). After 6 months of treatment, the levels of TG, HOMA-IR, and HOMA-IS in the telmisartan group were significantly lower in comparison with those of pre-therapy, the enalapril group (P<0.01), and 3-month-treatment (P<0.05). Post-prandial12 hour blood glucose (P2HBG) in the telmisartan group decreased significantly after 6-month treatment compared with that of pre-therapy and the enalapril group (P<0.05). The level of high density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol was significantly higher after 6-month treatment in the telmisartan group than with pre-therapy and the enalapril group(P<0.05). Conclusions Telmisartan could not only control blood pressure steadily and effectively, but also decrease blood TG, increase HDL cholesterol and insulin sensitivity, and lower insulin resistance.

Abstract: Detailed fieldwork in parts of the Benin (Dahomey) Basin SW, Nigeria has allowed the recognition of sedimentary successions deposited in different continental depositional environments interpreted as fluvial sedimentation characterised by abandoned channels and subaerial exposure features. The lithofacies recognisedare:conglomerates, debris flow deposits, very coarse grained sandstone, ferruginous cross bedded sandstone, siltstone, shale/clay and massive sand. The lithofacies wereinterpreted in terms of sequence stratigraphic elements with the recognition of sequence boundaries characterised by distinct facies dislocations and subaerial exposures. Four depositional sequences (DS I to DS IV) were identified. Depositional sequences (DS I) exhibited a complete regressive–transgressive cycle comprising LST, TST and HST, while DS II to DS IVwereincomplete comprising of sediments interpreted as LST deposits. On the basis of the depositional facies andsequence stratigraphic elements, the sediments in the area of study are interpreted as predominantly ofIlaro Formation while fewer exposures are sediments of the Coastal Plain Sands/Benin Formation. This observation suggests a re-interpretation of the Tertiary sedimentary successions, which hitherto recognised all the sediments in the area of study as Coastal Plain Sands.

African Research Review , 2010,
Abstract: The paper examines the information needs and characteristics of the users of rural libraries in Ekiti State, Nigeria. Users of libraries in three rural areas of the three senatorial districts of Ekiti State were surveyed. This was aimed at investigating the reading needs, sources of information, level of education of users and benefits of rural libraries to them. Questionnaire was used to collect data; tables and simple percentage were adopted in the data analysis. A major revelation of the study is that the library constitutes the major source of information for rural dwellers. Books are the major reading materials of rural people. It concluded by giving recommendations towards the improvement of information needs of rural dwellers by improving the provision of library services to them.

Research Journal of Applied Sciences , 2012,
Abstract: The study focused on the design of an Error Correcting Instructional Packages (ECIP) for secondary school physics practical. The study was designed to validate ECIP as a good instrument to reduce errors in physics practical. A Quasi experimental design of the three group pre-test, pos-test control design was employed. The treatment group was taught using the new package (ECIP), the conventional group was taught with the traditional practical teaching approach while the control group was not treated at all. The sample consisted of 60 physics students selected from different Government Colleges. Two null hypotheses were raised for the study and tested using one-way ANOVA. The study ensured the homogeneity of the three groups. The study confirmed the use of ECIP to be very effective at reducing errors committed by students during physics practical. The drastic reduction in the errors committed after the treatment using ECIP inform the recommendations of the usage of this new package (ECIP) in all secondary schools in Nigeria.
Embedding Information and Communications Technologies (ICT) in Nigeria Local Government System
O. Olabode,Akingbesote Alaba
Asian Journal of Information Technology , 2012,
Abstract: Local governments are faced with a huge diversity of citizens, issues and challenges. These range from the provision of social housing and welfare benefits, through to community safety, education services, waste management and the operation of recreational facilities. The purpose of Local Government is to tackle the challenge of balancing limited resources with the needs of their communities. In addition, local governments are under increasing pressure to deliver administrative transparency and accountability to its citizenry. Information and Communications Technology (ICT) has a key role to play in helping to meet the wide ranging responsibilities and diverse expectations of local government. The desire to improve citizen relationships is closely tied to the objective of improving the services provided by local government. In these areas, document management, back and front office integration and infrastructure upgrades were identified as key points of focus. In all areas of consideration, ICT has been identified as a key enabler to help support improved citizen-centric service provision. However, it is observed that Information and communication technology is not currently playing a significant role in the local governments in Nigeria. This study presents documentation on how ICT can be implemented in a local government to enhance good and quality service delivery. The role and challenges of local government were highlighted, Virtual bureaucracy to e-government is presented as well as the technical framework (Technical Model) for the ICT implementation in local government were presented. The Technical model has the basic components of ICT infrastructures and Information systems. The preconditions for ICT in local government were well presented.

Abstract: The metabolic syndrome (MS) is a cluster of interre-lated risk factors of metabolic origin - metabolic risk factors that appear to directly promote the development of ath-erosclerotic cardiovascular disease and increase the risk of development of type 2 diabetes.1 In addition to diabetes, these patients with MS have increased incidence of elevated plasma triglycerides, lower high density lipoproteins (HDL), and higher blood pressure. The association with MS has now been expanded to include small dense, low density lipoprotein (LDL), abdominal/truncal obesity, prothrombotic states with increased levels of plasminogen activator in-hibitor type 1 (PAI-1), microalbuminuria, impaired fasting glucose (insulin resistance syndrome) and proinflammatory states. Although there is no agreement on a universal defi-nition of MS, insulin resistance, impaired fasting glucose or diabetes constitute major criteria for this definition.

老年心脏病学杂志(英文版) , 2006,
Abstract: The systemic response to tissue injury, regardless of cause is characterized by a cytokine-mediated alteration in the hepatic synthesis of a number of different plasma proteins, known collectively as 'acute phase reactants'. These proteins include C-reactive protein, serum amyloid A protein, alpha 1 glycoprotein, ceruloplasmin, alpha macroglobulins, comple-ment components (C1-C4, factor B, C9, Cll), alphal antitrypsin, alphal antichymotrypsin, fibrinogen, prothrombin, factor VDI, plasminogen, haptoglobin, ferritin, immunoglobu-lins and lipoproteins. The initiation of the acute phase response is linked to the production of hormone-like polypeptide me-diators now called cytokines, namedly, interleukin l(IL-l), tumor necrosis factor, interferon gamma, interleukin 6 (IL-6), leukemia inhibitory factor, ciliary neurotropic factor, oncostatin M, and interleukin 11 (IL-11).
