Compensation of the Driver as a Motor Accident Victim in Cameroon: A Critical Appraisal of the Cima Code*  [PDF]
Abue Ako Scott Eke
Open Journal of Social Sciences (JSS) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/jss.2015.38017
Abstract: In Cameroon, the law that governs the compensation of motor accident victims is the CIMA Code. This law fully recognizes the driver as being a victim that is liable to compensation in case he suffers from a motor accident. Equally at the same time, the law has put in place special modalities which the driver must fulfill in order to receive complete or partial compensation. This is particularly important because the same law provides for a different regime of compensation when it comes to the case of victims non-driver. A driver could therefore be described as a victim sui generis. This paper does a critical appraisal of the procedural and substantive aspects inherent in the law of compensation, relevant to the driver-victim.
The Qualitative Dermatoglyphics PATTERNS in Both Hands for Males and Females in Ubang Clan Cross River State Nigeria  [PDF]
Andrew Donatus Abue, Rose Christopher, Adebisi Sunday
Advances in Anthropology (AA) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/aa.2018.82004
Abstract: Dermatoglyphics patterns otherwise known as toe or fingerprints are defined as the scientific study of fingerprints or toe prints. This started in 1892 when one of the most original biologists of his time, Sir Francis Galton, a cousin of Charles Darwin published his now classic work on fingerprints. The Ubang community has a total population of about four thousand, six hundred (4600) people (2006 Census figures). They are four autonomous communities vizOkweriseng, New Jerusalem, Ofambe and Okiron. Their dominant religion is traditional religion and Christianity. They are mostly peasant farmers, located at the foot of the Obudu hills in Obudu LGA of Cross River State, Nigeria.This is an amazing Anthropological community where the Men speak Ofre and the women speak Arasere. The researchers were looking out for exceptional dermatoglyphics feature very unique to this community probably because of the unique language variation observed in the community. The researchers also aimed at establishing the qualitative dermatoglyphic features for the community. The ink procedure established by Cummins was adopted in collecting the prints on the palms and fingers of the selected sample size. A total of 800 persons were used for the research (400 males, 380 females and 20 samples were discarded). Inclusion and Exclusion criteria were used to select samples. The simple random sampling method was used in selecting the clusters and the subjects. Data were analyzed using SPSS for windows version 21 (IBM Corporation WY, USA) and Statistical Analysis System, SAS JMP10, user guide statistics, version 10 edition, SAS Institute Inc.

Advances in Anthropology (AA) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/aa.2018.83005
Abstract: Analysis of the dermatoglyphics pattern in Ntamante Boki LGA of Cross River State, South-South, Nigeria is a research work carried out with the sole aim of analysing the dermatoglyphics pattern of the Ntamante people of Boki LGA in Cross river. Two hundred persons were randomly selected for the research comprising male and females. The collection of the finger prints was done using the ink procedure described by Cummins and Midlo analysis of data that was done using SPSS. The result obtained was thus: for females, the mean standard deviation was least in the radial loop (1 ± 1.6), followed by the Arches (4.9 ± 3.8), the Whorls (6.4 ± 4.4) and highest on the Ulnar loop (9.1 ± 9.7). Variables measured differed significantly (p = 0.05) with a Chi-square (X2) value of 17.41. Pr > Chisq = 0.053. For males, the mean standard deviation was highest in the Ulnar Loop pattern (12.6 ± 9.2), followed by the arch pattern (4.7 ± 2.8), then the whorls (3.3 ± 3) and then the radial loops (0.1 ± 0.4). This index study shows a higher frequency distribution of patterns of the Ulnar Loop, followed by the arches, then the whorls and finally the radial loop in the male samples which is different from the usual trend of Ulnar loop > Whorls > Arches > Radial loop obtained in other ethnic groups in Nigeria following the work of Jaja et al. among the Ijaws, Ekanem et al. amongst the Annangs, Ujaddughe et al. amongst the Esan of Edo state. Sexual dimorphism was evident in this research work with males showing a higher Ulnar loop distribution (12.6 ± 9.2), while the female percentage frequency distribution was (9.1 ± 9.7). In conclusion, this study shows the percentage frequencies of patterns among the Ntamante with the Ulnar Loop >Arch > Whorls> Radial loop amongst the males. Amongst the females, this was the distribution of pattern: Ulnar Loop > Whorls > Arches > Radial Loop. This is in line with what was obtained in different ethnic groups in Nigeria with regards to the percentage frequency distribution in the females, while amongst the males, the distribution shows the distribution pattern in Asia and Europe.
Evaluation of the trophic state in Vilun lagoon  [PDF]
Veledin ?ako, Fatbardha Babani
Advances in Bioscience and Biotechnology (ABB) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/abb.2011.24045
Abstract: In this paper we present the evaluation of trophic state of lagoon aquatic ecosystems connected to the Adriatic Sea. Vilun lagoon is one of these lagoons in Albania. It is one of the most important ecosystems in the country. For trophic state evaluation, spectrophotometry methods of absorption, as well as turbidimetry ones are applied. This ecosystem is monitored for a year from April to October. The evaluation of trophic state is based on these four indicators: the containment of chlorophyll a in phytoplankton; the distribution of photosynthetic pigments; water turbidity and phosphorus containment in water. The monitoring process is performed in different areas of the lagoon, in order to be able to make a more characteristic evaluation of trophic state. All selected areas of Vilun lagoon show a reasonable level of trophic state, which is characterized such as being mezotrophic. Changes related to trophic level are observed during the monitoring period, in each and all the selected areas. Furthermore, changes in the distribu-tion of chlorophylls and their relative content between selected areas are observed.
Biodegradation of Melamine and Cyanuric Acid by a Newly-Isolated Microbacterium Strain  [PDF]
Naofumi Shiomi, Maiko Ako
Advances in Microbiology (AiM) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/aim.2012.23036
Abstract: We searched for a superior melamine-degrading bacterium for the bioremediation of melamine. Cyanuric acid, which is a by-product produced during the biodegradation of melamine, shows strong nephrotoxicity. Therefore, the melamine-degrading bacterium is also required to show a high ability to degrade cyanuric acid. We selected a melamine-degrading strain (MEL1) among ten cyanuric acid-degrading bacteria isolated from the soil. The species of MEL1 strain was Microbacterium esteramaticum or was extremely similar to that species, and the enzymatic activity of the melamine deaminase in the MEL1 strain was similar to that in the NRRLB-12227 strain. The ability of the MEL1 strain to degrade cyanuric acid was higher than its ability to degrade melamine, and therefore, the accumulation of by-products (ammeline, ammelide and cyanuric acid) during the degradation of melamine was minimal. These results suggest that the MEL1 strain is useful for the bioremediation of melamine.

Advances in Anthropology (AA) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/aa.2013.34033

Dermatoglyphic has found application in establishing ethnic differences (Harlich et al., 2002). The plantar Arch pattern dermatoglyhics of the Hausa ethnic group of Nigeria has not been established, and a lot of work had been done in southern Nigeria. This work attempts to look into the plantar arch patterns of the Hausas in Northern Nigeria. A cross-sectional survey of 357 subjects was collected from persons who were truly of the Hausa tribe in Nigeria. 222 of the subjects were males while 135 were females. There was a significant difference in the plantar arch pattern on both sexes as confirmed by the chi-square test. There were differences on both feet. The percentage frequency of the arch pattern on the toes was greatest on the females and on the right toe (63%). The frequency was least on females (9.9%). The frequencies were greatest on the right toes of both sexes.

Media Peternakan , 2007,
Abstract: Grazing adaptability of beef cattle on dwarf variety of late-heading type (DL) napiergrass (Pennisetum purpureum Schumach) pasture was examined in summer season at Miyazaki, Japan in 2005. Five paddocks of DL napiergrass pasture with an area 2500 m2, (500 m2, per paddock) were established since May 2002. Three heads of raising beef cows (Japanese-Black) were rotationally grazed in a week with 4-weeks rest period from June to October. Forage dry yield at pre- and post-grazing averaged 238.6 – 582.6 g/m2 and 152.8 – 309.5 g/m2, respectively with percentage consumption averaged 42.5% – 71.6%. Forage consumption and dry matter intake averaged 14.5 – 50.9 g DM/m2/day and 2.42 – 8.48 kg DM/1 IU/day, respectively with average daily gain was 0,56 kg/day. Grazing adaptability of beef cattle on DL napiergrass needed time for about one week. Thus, the DL napiergrass pasture can be utilized under the rotational grazing at stocking rate of 12 head/ha (calculated 3600 kg LW/ha/day) in the summer season of subtropical area.

Applied Mathematics (AM) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/am.2014.54071

The notion of a G-symmetric space is introduced and the common fixed points for some pairs of occasionally weakly compatible maps satisfying some contractive conditions in a G-symmetric space are proved. The results extend and improve some results in literature.

Water Turbidity as One of the Trophic State Indices in Butrinti Lake  [PDF]
Veledin ?ako, Syrja Baci, Mersin Shena
Journal of Water Resource and Protection (JWARP) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/jwarp.2013.512120

In this paper we are presenting observations, data and some conclusions regarding the water turbidity and transparency of the aquatic ecosystem of Butrinti Lake in southern Albania. Located amidst a major tourist attraction area, Butrinti Lake is fed by fresh waters from surrounding areas and discharges into Ionian Sea. Although development is preset in the area, it is still minor as part of the area is a National Park. Turbidity, as an optical property which describes the cloudiness of the water, is a measure of the degree to which the water becomes less transparent due to the presence of suspended particulates, including sediments and phytoplankton. The water turbidity parameters were measured every two weeks over a year, monitoring three selected stations in this water ecosystem. Turbidity of water in such ecosystems is measured in FTU (Formazin Turbidity Units) using a portable turbid meter (in our case type HANNA HI 93703-11), which measures the intensity of light scattered at 90 degrees, as a beam of light passes through a water sample. In addition, turbidity is evaluated using a Secchi disk. The depth (Secchi depth) until the disk can be no longer seen by the observer is recorded as a measure of the transparency of the water (inversely related to turbidity). The Secchi disk has the advantages of integrating turbidity over depth (where variable turbidity layers are present). The relationship between the depth of the viewing disk and the turbidity can be characterized by an inverse curvilinear one. The defined trend line can be expressed by the same curve related to the data of Butrinti Lake. An R2 Value of 0.85 was calculated for the above equation. Variations were observed on turbidity level of the selected stations in this ecosystem. These differences on the turbidity values of selected stations of water body can be explained by the communications sea-lagoon, fresh water supply as well as by the pollution due to human activity near a certain
