Ethnic Diversity as Tool of Good Governance in Nigerian Political Dialectics  [PDF]
Chika J. B. Gabriel Okpalike
Open Journal of Social Sciences (JSS) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/jss.2015.36021
Abstract: The principles of Good Governance presume peoples, nations, systems, corporations, cultures and so forth. These entities are what must be found at the backdrop of a possible Good Governance in Nigeria. Meanwhile the collapse of any civilization; the decay of any society; the death of the human spirit in any epoch is often heralded by the deterioration of culture. In other words anarchy in and disintegration of any society are consequent upon a decline, decadence, misconstrue or neglect in the culture of that society. Identifying the veritable Nigerian culture is a task outside whose accomplishment Good Governance in the country remains a farce, because it is a people who generate culture and a culture which grounds Good Governance. The quest for Good Governance in Nigeria is a pipe dream; a flight of fancy in as much as the Nigerian people is phantom and their culture inanity. Meanwhile it is more convenient to talk about the people, culture, language and religion of Nigeria in plural terms. Therefore we can only say Nigerian cultures, languages and religions. It was John S. Mbiti [1] and Emefie I. Metuh [2] who had agreed on this plurality only in terms of African Religions. Plurality as diversity is the essential character of Nigeria. We may conveniently talk about the Igbo (Likewise Yoruba, Hausa, Kalabari, Ogoni, Ibibio, Tiv and so on) culture, language, religion, people and so forth. Yet even at that, what we mean can easily identify with the past and dying ways of the people which the present recalls according to the strength of their hindsight, but which has no relevance at all on the life of those who commemorate them. This article from a phenomenological perspective understands culture as a unified way of life that binds a people together and identifies its absent presence in Nigeria with the inevitable consequence of the illusiveness of Good Governance. It then opens the vistas of another possibility of building Good Governance on the same diversity.
Leishmanioses tegumentares: aspectos clínicos e imunopatológicos
Grimaldi Júnior, Gabriel;
Memórias do Instituto Oswaldo Cruz , 1982, DOI: 10.1590/S0074-02761982000200010
Abstract: parasites of the genus leishmania induce a complex variety of responses in their mammalian hosts, effected and/or modulated by the immune system. the outcome of leishmanial infection of macrophages depends on factors particular to each host-parasite combination, involving not only intrinsic properties of the parasite, but also genetically determined characteristics of the host cell or of its interactions with immunocompetent cells. following a review of evidence supporting these concepts, they are applied in describing the clinical and immunopathological spectrum of the disease as it occurs in man, with emphasis on the cutaneous and mucocutaneous leishmaniases of the old and new world. based on results obtained in experimental models of cutaneous leishmaniasis which reproduce features of healing and non-healing human disease, the author presents a schematic analysis of the evolution of the histopathological features of leishmanial lesions.
La llamada existencia de Dios en Santo Tomás: un replanteo del problema
Zanotti,Gabriel J.;
Civilizar Ciencias Sociales y Humanas , 2010,
Abstract: the central thesis of this article is that the debate about the "ways" of aquinas is held not only for obvious cultural reasons, but an internal problem to thomism today. this first reviewed the traditional objections (kant, positivism, heidegger), we review and evaluate the traditional responses from various thomists (fabro, gilson, llano, welte, ferro) and then suggest our proposal, from a re-development of relationship between reason and faith, awareness of the hermeneutic circle and a step forward in the notion of "christian philosophy."
Filosofía de la ciencia y realismo: los límites del método
Zanotti,Gabriel J.;
Civilizar Ciencias Sociales y Humanas , 2011,
Abstract: the purpose of this paper is to outline an important limit of the hypothetical-deductive method for trying to solve the "realism/anti-realism" problem. in order to do it, i make a critical commentary on the "status questions" in the current philosophy of science, suggesting at the same time a line of research to be enhanced.
Dr. Carlos J. Finlay y de Barré, primer epidemiólogo de América Latina
Toledo Curbelo,Gabriel J.;
Revista Cubana de Higiene y Epidemiolog?-a , 1998,
Abstract: the objective of this paper is to demonstrate how with a difference of 13 years dr. john sonw in england, in 1854, and dr. carlos j. finlay y de barré in cuba, in 1867, used the same reasoning and the same approach that later will be know as epidemiological to solve disease outbreaks. the first epidemic occurred in broad street in soho, a district of london, england, and the second one in the district of cerro, outside havana, cuba. only 13 years separated these great scientists in the utilization of the scientific method in its particular form, the epidemiological method, to investigate and resolve a severe problem that affected public health and that was connected with cholers this time. if that fact allowed john snow to be considered as the "father of modern epidemiology", with which we completely agree, we demand that dr. carlos j. finlay y de barré, who used the scientific method for the first time in latin america to investigate and face an extremely serious health problem that was taking place in cuba, be considered as the "first latin american epidemiologist".
Gestión de inventarios como factor de competitividad, en el sector metalmecánico de la región occidental de Venezuela
Aguilar O,Gabriel J;
Revista de Ciencias Sociales , 2009,
Abstract: this investigation analyzes inventory management as an element of competitiveness in companies of the metallurgy industry in the western region of venezuela. the methodology is of a descriptive type, non-experimental, trans-sectional. the population consists of twenty (20) companies of the metallurgy industry devoted to producing machine tools, specifically winches and milling machines, registered in the western region of venezuela, selecting the entire population for the study. results demonstrate that inventory management in the metallurgical industry of the western region of venezuela does not constitute a factor of competitiveness in the companies within the industry.
Decoloration of the Reactive Blue Dye, KN-R
H. Gabriel,J. Hong
Research Journal of Applied Sciences , 2012,
Abstract: The oxidation using UV-Fenton reagent has been found to be a promising treatment method for the effective decolorization and degradation of dyes. The decolorization of the reactive blue dye KN-R was investigated using Fenton and UV/Fenton processes. The effects of solution pH, initial dye, H2O2, Fe2+ concentrations, respectively, were studied and optimal conditions determined. The optimized treatment conditions are the following: pH 3.0, 30 mg L 1 (Fe2+), 10.2 g L 1 (H2O2) for a reaction time of 30 min. The KN-R dye degradation was found to be dependent on the dye concentration such that the higher the dye concentration, the lower the decoloration and degradation efficiencies. The UV/Fenton process showed higher decoloration rate than the Fenton process and 98% was achieved in about 10 min of the reaction time. The effect of iron source and NaCl were studied. Finally, kinetics involved in KN-R degradation were also calculated and the rate constants were found to be proportional to hydrogen peroxide concentration as well as ferrous ions concentration.
Dr. Carlos J. Finlay y de Barré, primer epidemiólogo de América Latina
Gabriel J. Toledo Curbelo
Revista Cubana de Higiene y Epidemiología , 1998,
Abstract: Se pretende demostrar cómo con 13 a os de diferencia, el doctor John Snow, en Inglaterra, en el a o 1854 y el doctor Carlos J. Finlay y de Barré, en Cuba, en el a o 1867, utilizaron el mismo método de razonamiento, el mismo enfoque que luego se conocería como epidemiológico, para solucionar brotes epidémicos, el primero en la calle Broad Street, en el Soho londinense, Inglaterra; el segundo, el brote epidémico de la barriada del Cerro, en la Habana Extramuros, Cuba. Sólo 13 a os separaron a ambos grandes de la ciencia en la utilización del método científico en su forma particular, el Método Epidemiológico, para la investigación y solución de un problema grave que afectaba la salud pública, en este caso relacionado con el cólera. Si ese hecho le valió al doctor John Snow el ser considerado por muchos como el "Padre de la epidemiología moderna", con lo que nosotros estamos plenamente de acuerdo, reclamamos para el doctor Carlos J. Finlay y de Barré, quien primero utilizó el método científico en la América Latina, para investigar y solucionar un problema de salud de gran magnitud que se estaba produciendo en Cuba, que se le considere como el "Primer epidemiólogo latinoamericano". The objective of this paper is to demonstrate how with a difference of 13 years Dr. John Sonw in England, in 1854, and Dr. Carlos J. Finlay y de Barré in Cuba, in 1867, used the same reasoning and the same approach that later will be know as epidemiological to solve disease outbreaks. The first epidemic occurred in Broad Street in Soho, a district of London, England, and the second one in the district of Cerro, outside Havana, Cuba. Only 13 years separated these great scientists in the utilization of the scientific method in its particular form, the Epidemiological Method, to investigate and resolve a severe problem that affected public health and that was connected with cholers this time. If that fact allowed John Snow to be considered as the "Father of modern epidemiology", with which we completely agree, we demand that Dr. Carlos J. Finlay y de Barré, who used the scientific method for the first time in Latin America to investigate and face an extremely serious health problem that was taking place in Cuba, be considered as the "First Latin American epidemiologist".
