Study of Nutrient Content Variation in Bulb And Stalk of Onions (Allium Sepa) Cultivated in Aliero, Aliero, Kebbi State, Nigeria
Y Yahaya, UAB Uauri, BU Bagudo
Nigerian Journal of Basic and Applied Sciences , 2010,
Abstract: The proximate, macro and trace-elements, vitamins A and C, and oxalate compositions were determined in onion bulbs and their stalks from three agricultural fields in Aliero, Kebbi state. The bulbs and stalks contained closely related mean values of 93.11g/100g and 91.70g/100g, 6.48g/100g and 6.74g/100g as moisture and crude protein contents respectively. Values of 4.26g/100g (bulbs) and 13.56g/100g (stalks) were observed as ash content, while their fibre contents were 13.56g/100g (bulbs) and 9.33g/100g (stalks). The macro element concentration in the bulbs was in the order Ca>Mg>K>P>Na while that of the stalks was Mg>Ca>K>P>Na. For the trace elements, the order was Fe>Zn>Mn>Cu>Pb>Ni>Cd for the bulbs and Fe>Mn>Zn>Cu>Ni>Pb>Cd for the stalks. Only Iron concentrations were observed to be higher than (100-500μgg-1) the normal Fe concentrations in plants. There were significant differences (p<0.05) in the mean concentrations of Fe, Mn and Pb with stalks having higher values for Fe and Mn. Both the oxalate and vitamins A and C contents of the bulbs were significantly (P<0.05) high when compared to other reported values. The presence of oxalate in both the bulbs and stalks could affect the bioavailability of some nutrient elements. The results generally indicate that the bulbs are more nutritious than the stalks. With the current problem of Fe deficiency as identified by WHO, onions could be another source of helping the situation.

LG Hassan, BU Bagudo, AA Aliero, KJ Umar, NA Sani
Nigerian Journal of Basic and Applied Sciences , 2011,
Abstract: Nutritional and antinutritional contents of Parkia biglobosa flower were analysed using standard analytical methods. On dry weight basis, the flower had the following proximate compositions; ash (6.50 ± 1.00%), crude lipid (4.66 ± 0.29%), crude protein (6.77 ± 0.15%), available carbohydrate (78.9 ± 1.18%) and crude fibre (3.17 ± 0.29%). The calorific value was 384.7 kcal/100g. Mineral analysis indicates that the flower contain some essential minerals such as K, Na, Ca, Mg, and Zn, but was low in Cu, Mn, and Fe. The flower has low concentration of anti-nutritive factors: phytate (1.41±0.24mg %); oxalate (0.03±0.01mg %); hydrocyanic acid (0.17±0.01mg %) and nitrate (1.32±0.10mg %). The values are below the reference toxic standard levels. Therefore, P. biglobosa flower could supplement the microelements requirement, energy and to some extent protein.
Studies on the Effect of Rice Husk Ash as Cement Admixture
MU Dabai, C Muhammad, BU Bagudo, A Musa
Nigerian Journal of Basic and Applied Sciences , 2009,
Abstract: Compressive strength tests were carried out on six mortar cubes with cement replaced by rice husk ash (RHA) at five levels (0, 10, 20, 30, 40 and 50%). After the curing age of 3, 7, 14 and 28 days. The compressive strengths of the cubes at 10% replacement were 12.60, 14.20, 22.10, 28.50 and 36.30 N/mm2 respectively and increased with age of curing but decreased with increase in RHA content for all mixes. The chemical analysis of the rice husk ash revealed high amount of silica (68.12%), alumina (1.01%) and oxides such as calcium oxide (1.01%) and iron oxide (0.78%) responsible for strength, soundness and setting of the concrete. It also contained high amount of magnesia (1.31%) which is responsible for the unsoundness. This result, therefore, indicated that RHA can be used as cement substitute at 10% and 20% replacement and 14 and 28 day curing age. KEYWORD: Compressive Strength, Setting Time, Soundness, Curing

BU Bagudo, SM Dangoggo, LG Hassan, B Garba
Nigerian Journal of Basic and Applied Sciences , 2010,
Abstract: Yeast catalyzed the rate of biomethanization of waste materials and rate at which it alter the reaction rate has been determined. It was observed that addition of yeast improved the quality and quantity of biogas generated and also fastened the acid and methane forming stages during biomethanization. The volumes of biogas in the catalyzed process was found to be 6550 cm3 for cow dung, 5640 cm3 for millet husk, 3240 cm3 for rice husk ,1000 cm3 for saw dust and 800 cm3 for the paper waste, as against 5430 cm3, 5230 cm3, 2110 cm3, 950 cm3 and 590 cm3 respectively for the uncatalyzed biomethanization process.
Evaluation and Prediction of Urban Entrepreneurship Environment in China: A Case of Guangzhou City  [PDF]
Yuxi Kuang, Yan Bu
Journal of Service Science and Management (JSSM) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/jssm.2018.114029
Abstract: Studying the urban entrepreneurship environment has guiding significance for the development of urban economy and employment. Based on the PSR (Pressure-State-Response) model framework, this paper constructs an index system for evaluation of urban entrepreneurship environment, and uses the multi-factor weighted method to systematically quantitatively analyze and comprehensively evaluate the state of entrepreneurship policies, service systems, and hardware facilities, and use GM(1, 1) model to predict the development trend of urban entrepreneurship environment in Guangzhou. The study shows that the policy measures to optimize the entrepreneurship environment have effectiveness, time lag and accumulation effect, and the government’s response measures are the core factors for the stable development of the urban entrepreneurship environment. It is expected that the entrepreneurship environment in Guangzhou will continue to improve in the future. Finally, it is pointed out that optimizing the urban entrepreneurship environment should start from innovation, attracting talents, increasing financial support, and highlighting regional industrial characteristics to form an entrepreneurship economy.

Hannatu A. Sani,A.I. Tsafe,B.U. Bagudo,A.U. Itodo
Pakistan Journal of Nutrition , 2011,
Abstract: Potentially toxic metals (Pb, Fe, Mn, Cr, Cd, Zn and Cu) concentration in selected vegetables namely; lettuce (Lactuca sativa) and spinach (Spinacea oleracea) was investigated alongside their harvesting site soil samples using Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy (AAS). Some physicochemical parameters viz; pH, moisture and ash contents of the plant were also determined. The estimated metal concentrations for the vegetables ranges from 1.59-2.07 ug/g, 211-364 ug/g, 7.0-7.5 ug/g, 5.00-5.25 ug/g, 0.01 ug/g, 20.4-24.12 ug/g, 0.8-1.1 ug/g for Pb, Fe, Mn, Cr, Cd, Zn, Cu respectively. The result showed that soils in industrial site are higher in heavy metals and that vegetable grown in the industrial sites is considerably higher in metal content than those grown in normal agricultural soils. It is also observed that vegetables differ in their ability for heavy metal uptake. Highest metal concentrations were observed in lettuce and lowest in spinach.

BU Imonikebe
African Research Review , 2009,
Abstract: The study investigated the weaning practices of mothers and the nutritional status of infants in Isoko North and South Local Government Areas in Delta State, Nigeria. The population consisted of mothers who had up to two children including infants from various occupational groups. A sample of 300 mothers was randomly selected. Questionnaire was used for data collection. The anthropometry used was the height and weight of the infants. The percentage of the responses to each of the questionnaire items was calculated. Findings showed that most of the mothers started weaning their infants in the fourth month. The mothers gave commercial and home made weaning foods to their babies “on demand”. Others practised “scheduled feeding”. The major weaning foods given to the infants are banana, corn pap, cerelac. It was observed that some of the infants had normal nutritional status. Others were malnourished. It was recommended among others that the mothers should be encouraged to wean their babies with legumes, green leafy vegetables, soymilk, fish and fruits to enhance their nutritional status.
