Organizational Barriers Limiting Women’s Participation in Women-In-Agriculture (Wia) Programme in Umuahia Agricultural Zone of Abia State, Nigeria
G.E. Ifenkwe
International Journal of Academic Research in Business and Social Sciences , 2012,
Abstract: Development literature is replete with evidence of high level of involvement of women in agricultural production and value addition activities in Nigeria. This paper highlights organizational barriers limiting women’s participation in Women-in-Agriculture (WIA) program, one of the women’s enabling agricultural program in Abia State, Nigeria. Multi-stage random sampling technique was adopted in selecting one hundred and twenty women farmers studied. Simple statistical tools (frequencies and percentages) were used in data analysis. The results show that agency-related and organizational problems accounted for over 80% of the constraints limiting participation in the program. They also differ significantly from client or farmer-related problems. Considering the huge financial investments in the agricultural sector, and the Federal Government’s policy thrust on food security, the paper recommends involvement of all stakeholders who must contribute their quota towards sustainable food security in Nigeria.
Social Networking and Eco-Vigilance for Effective Environmental Management in Nigeria
G.E. Ifenkwe
International Journal of Academic Research in Business and Social Sciences , 2012,
Abstract: This paper highlights Federal Government’s efforts to tackle environmental and ecological problems in Nigeria, including the establishment of the Federal Environment Protection Agency (FEPA), the policy of monthly environmental sanitation day, and the setting aside of two percent of the federation account (ecological funds) for the amelioration of ecological problems, including soil erosion and flood control. The paper also identified factors occasioning environmental degradation in various land resource zones of the country: semi arid, dry sub-humid, sub-humid, humid, very humid, swamp/flood, plateau and montane. The very humid zone (85.71%) was found to be the most vulnerable to environmental degradation and climate change, followed by the humid (71.43%) and sub-humid (64.29%) zones. The paper emphasizes that measures for protecting and preserving the environment must be hinged on environmental education, ecological vigilance and social networking.
Poverty Management among Rural Women in Bende Local Government of Abia State, Nigeria
G.E. Ifenkwe,E.S. Kalu
International Journal of Academic Research in Business and Social Sciences , 2012,
Abstract: Except if it is well managed, poverty will breed poverty, and its effect will be transmitted through time from one generation to another. This realization prompted this study which assessed the poverty status of rural women in Bende Local Government Area of Abia State, Nigeria. One hundred and twenty (120) randomly selected women served as respondents, while data were analyzed using descriptive statistics, and probit regression model. Results showed the mean capita expenditure of the respondents as N10,038.13, indicating that sixty (60) percent of women in the study area were poor. The probit regression result showed that age (-1.755*), education (8.608***), household size (2.239*) and income (2.5485***) affect poverty status of the rural women. The study recommends, among other things, promoting opportunities for empowering educationally-disadvantaged women to diversify into non-farm, income-generating activities in order to reduce their vulnerability to poverty, and as a means of managing or alleviating poverty in the area.
Long-term prognosis of depression in primary care
Bulletin of the World Health Organization , 2000, DOI: 10.1590/S0042-96862000000400005
Abstract: this article uses longitudinal data from a primary care sample to examine long-term prognosis of depression. a sample of 225 patients initiating antidepressant treatment in primary care completed assessments of clinical outcome (hamilton depression rating scale and the mood module of the structured clinical interview for dsm-iiir) 1, 3, 6, 9, 12, 18 and 24 months after initiating treatment. the proportion of patients continuing to meet criteria for major depression fell rapidly to approximately 10% and remained at approximately that level throughout follow-up. the proportion meeting criteria for remission (hamilton depression score of 7 or less) rose gradually to approximately 45%. long-term prognosis (i.e. probability of remission at 6 months and beyond) was strongly related to remission status at 3 months (odds ratio 3.65; 95% confidence interval, 2.81-4.76) and only modestly related to various clinical characteristics assessed at baseline (e.g. prior history of recurrent depression, medical comorbidity, comorbid anxiety symptoms). the findings indicate that potentially modifiable risk factors influence the long-term prognosis of depression. this suggests that more systematic and effective depression treatment programmes might have an important effect on long-term course and reduce the overall burden of chronic and recurrent depression.

The Peculiarities of Martensite Morphology in Nano- and Inhomogeneous Spaces
Monastyrsky G.E.
Proceedings of the International Conference Nanomaterials : Applications and Properties , 2013,
Abstract: The article describes certain experimental situations, in which the small volumes available for the phase transformation can dramatically affect the morphology, substructure of martensite, martensitic transformation itself. Martensitic structures in standalone nanoparticles as well as that one’s embedded in extrinsic matrix, joint nanograins and multiply connected spaces, gradient structures are given consideration. Much attention is paid to the problem of nucleation and propagation of martensitic phase through peculiar spaces having inhomogeneities and complex 3D connectivity with each other. The conclusion is made about inconsistency of the observed ultimate martensite microstructure in nanosized and inhomogeneous spaces with the current conception of the propagation of martensite-austenite boundary through the available for the transformation volumes as the interface, which sustains the invariant plane strain condition.
