THE DRAMATIST’S SOCIAL VISION AND THE QUEST FOR A BETTER SOCIETY: A CRITICAL INTERPRETATION OF AGORO’S SOMETHING TO DIE FOR
Dr. Kenneth Efakponana Eni
The Dawn Journal , 2013,
Abstract: This paper addresses itself to the select text based on the social critical art theory. Utilising the theoretical discussion on social criticism, the writers examine the ways in which the select play serves as a challenge to existing traditional practices. The writers use the select text as base for looking at the effectiveness of drama as a critical tool in society and how this tool has been used by the playwright in deconstructing and reconstructing his society. The writers conclude by asserting that cashing in on the Christian concept of love, the playwright presents varying perspectives on reconstructing his society based on his vision of mutual reconciliation and recognition of social-identities to outright overthrow of old systems.
Osofisan and the paradox of a literary style
EK Efakponana
Creative Artist: A Journal of Theatre and Media Studies , 2009,
Abstract: In order to understand trends and developments on the Nigerian stage, the literary dramatist is considered a determinant of its future advancement. Theatre as a composite art possesses the ability to relate to other cultures, traditions and fields of learning, reaching out and unifying them dynamically. This paper examines select works of Femi Osofisan as a paradigm for measuring foreign influences on Nigerian drama and theatre, which ideally should maintain a close link with its traditional heritage. It is the submission of this paper that, although Osofisan’s theatre is rooted in the social culture of Nigeria, it is however subsumed in Euro-American aesthetics, values, ideologies, philosophies and attitudes. Osofisan, like many other Nigerian playwrights, is thus considered as a product of a paradox. He is inspired by religion, education, his numerous contacts with the West, philosophies and aesthetic traditions of other nations and cultures; a product of the colonial accident and a nostalgic longing for the ancient past. This creates in his writings an identity crisis, which leads to a literature of activism that is committed to fighting for one form of freedom or the other while being enslaved within the same bonds from which the playwright is seeking a release. It is the submission of this paper that, Nigerian literary drama therefore requires a new form that is akin to its cultural heritage. The formal theatres and the arts theatre syndrome is inhibiting to the vibrant traditional Nigerian theatre culture.
Seasonal ARIMA Modeling and Forecasting of Rainfall in Warri Town, Nigeria  [PDF]
Daniel Eni, Fola J. Adeyeye
Journal of Geoscience and Environment Protection (GEP) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/gep.2015.36015
Abstract:

We obtained historical data of rainfall in Warri Town for the period 2003-2012 for the purpose of model identification and those of 2013 for forecast validation of the identified model. Model identification was by visual inspection of both the sample ACF and sample PACF to postulate many possible models and then use the model selection criterion of Residual Sum of Square (RSS), Akaike’s Information Criterion (AIC) complemented by the Schwartz’s Bayesian Criterion (SBC), to choose the best model. The chosen model was the Seasonal ARIMA (1, 1, 1) (0, 1, 1) process which met the criterion of model parsimony with RSS value of 81.098,773, AIC value of 281.312,35 and SBC value of 289.330,84. Model adequacy checks showed that the model was appropriate. We used the model to forecast rainfall for 2013 and the result compared very well with the observed empirical data for 2013.

Creative Artist: A Journal of Theatre and Media Studies , 2009,
Abstract: This paper examines two of Zulu Sofola’s works with a view to establishing the level of influence which she welds on the Nigerian stage and in the growing Nigerian feminist writings. As a pioneer female writer in Nigeria, the paper focuses on the major influences that shaped her works with a view to a better understanding and appreciation of her role as a first female playwright and scholar in the Nigerian theatre.
Process and Error Isolation for Arma (1,1) Subsumed in AR (1) Process
Daniel Eni
Journal of Modern Mathematics and Statistics , 2012,
Abstract: In this study, we developed a method which enables us to estimate both the ARMA (1,1) process and the AR(1) error process for a situation where we suspect, from experience that a set of data which can be fitted by ARMA(1,1) model is corrupted by another set of data following AR(1) process. Simulation studies showed that the method performed very well in isolating the set that can be fitted by ARMA(1,1) model from the set that can be fitted by AR(1) model
Aperformance Ratings of an Autocovariance Base Estimator (ABE) in the Estimation of GARCH Model Parameters When the Normality Assumption is Invalid
Daniel Eni
Research Journal of Applied Sciences , 2012, DOI: 10.3923/rjasci.2010.108.111
Abstract: In this study, the performance of an Autocovariance Base Estimator (ABE) for GARCH models was studied, against that of the Maximum Likelihood Estimator (MLE) if the distribution assumption is wrongly specified as normal. We do this by first simulating time series data that fits GARCH model using the Log normal and t-distribution with degrees of freedom of 5, 10 and 15 as the true probability distribution but assumed normality in the process of parameter estimations. To keep track of consistency, we conduct and present the studies in sample sizes of 200, 500, 1000 and 1200. The two methods were then used to analyse the series under normality assumption. The result shows that the ABE method appears to be competitive in the situations considered.
ODNOS S BLISKIM OSOBAMA I RATNA TRAUMATSKA ISKUSTVA

Ljetopis Studijskog Centra Socijalnog Rada , 2005,
Abstract: Istra ivanje provedeno s hrvatskim prognanicima u Istri i grupom Istrana koji nisu izravno do ivjeli rat pokazuje devet godina nakon kraja rata bitne razlike na upitniku Posttraumatskih stresnih reakcije (PTSR), upitniku Strategija suo avanja (COPE) i upitniku Odnosi s bliskim osobama (ERAAwC). Kod prognanika su jo uvijek prisutni simptomi posttraumatskog stresnog poreme aja (PTSP). Iako je njihov odnos s bliskim osobama funkcionalan, pro ivljena traumatska iskustva iz rata ine ih osjetljivijima na emocionalne aspekte situacije u kojoj se nalaze. Prognanici ne ele da te ka traumatska iskustva iz rata utje u na njihov dana nji ivot, to se vidi iz njihovih strategija suo avanja te niskih rezultata na dimenziji svjesnosti. Za razliku od Istrana koji se koriste strategijama usmjerenim na rje avanje problema i tra enje emotivne i socijalne podr ke, prognanici i danas koriste strategije bijega iz stvarnosti kao to su povla enje, poricanje, samookrivljavanje, uporaba alkohola i droge i religija.

Abstract: The current Special Edition of the Journal explores teen pregnancy and parenthood in Canadian First Nation and urban Aboriginal communities. Our better understanding of the factors associated with teen pregnancy in Aboriginal communities is essential to making improvements in health and wellness and in fostering the involvement of youth in community economic and cultural development.
Influences of dietary soy isoflavones on metabolism but not nociception and stress hormone responses in ovariectomized female rats
Lihong Bu, Kenneth DR Setchell, Edwin D Lephart
Reproductive Biology and Endocrinology , 2005, DOI: 10.1186/1477-7827-3-58
Abstract: In this study, ovariectomized (OVX) female Long-Evans rats were fed either an isoflavone-rich diet (Phyto-600) or an isoflavone-free diet (Phyto-free). We examined the effects of soy isoflavones on metabolism by measuring body weights, food/water intake, adipose tissue weights as well as serum leptin levels. Also, circulating isoflavone levels were quantified. During chemically induced estrous, nociceptive thresholds were recorded. Then, the animals were subjected to a stressor and stress hormone levels were quantified.Body weights were significantly lower in Phyto-600 fed rats compared to Phyto-free values within one week and during long-term consumption of soy isoflavones. Correspondingly, Phyto-600 fed animals displayed significantly less adipose deposition and lower serum leptin levels than Phyto-free values. However, rats on the Phyto-600 diet displayed greater food/water intake compared to Phyto-free levels. No changes in thermal pain threshold or stress hormone levels (ACTH and corticosterone) were observed after activation of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) stress axis.In summary, these data show that consumption of soy isoflavones 1) increases metabolism, demonstrated by significantly decreased body weights, adipose tissue deposition and leptin levels, but 2) does not alter nociception or stress hormone responses, as indexed by thermal pain threshold, serum corticosterone and ACTH levels in chemically-induced estrous OVX rats.Phytoestrogens are naturally occurring, plant derived, non-steroid molecules that are structurally similar to 17beta-estradiol [1]. Of all the phytoestrogens, soy-derived isoflavones are the most abundant in rodent and human diets and the most studied in both animal and clinical research. Dietary soy isoflavones exist as active aglycones (daidzein and genistein) and inactive glucosides (mainly daidzin and genistin). When consumed, glucosides are hydrolyzed by intestinal glucosidases, which release the aglycones, daidzein and g
