Quality of Antenatal Care: Comparison between Secondary and Tertiary Health Facilities in Ibadan, Nigeria  [PDF]
Oluwasomidoyin Olukemi Bello
Open Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology (OJOG) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/ojog.2018.86063
Abstract: Background: Patient satisfaction is related to the quality of services received and the extent to which specific needs are met. Satisfied patients are likely to come back for the health services and recommend it to others. Objective: To assess and compare patients’ satisfaction with the quality of prenatal/antenatal care (QPC) services received at a tertiary and secondary health facility in Ibadan, Nigeria. Methods: A comparative cross sectional study used an interviewer administered questionnaire to assess and compare the quality of antenatal care among women who had antenatal care and delivered live baby in two government health facilities—Adeoyo Maternity Hospital (secondary health facility) and University College Hospital (tertiary health facility). A total of 500 women were interviewed within 48 hours post delivery and data obtained was analyzed with SPSS version 20. Results: The mean age was 29.7 (SD = 4.95) years. About half of the respondents had more than four antenatal visits, almost two-thirds (61.4%) were primipara, and 55.6% delivered per vagina. Almost all (98.4%) the women were very satisfied with the QPC received while a little above half (54.0%) received high QPC. Health facility and mode of delivery were found to be significantly associated with the satisfaction of the QPC. Factors predicting high QPC comparing the tertiary and secondary health facility are “availability” (OR = 0.341, 95%CI = 0.173 - 0.672) and “support and respect” (OR = 5.599, 95%CI = 3.621 - 8.659) of health care
Yield and Yield Components of Bread Wheat as Influenced by Water Stress, Sowing Date and Cultivar in Sokoto, Sudan Savannah, Nigeria  [PDF]
Mohammed Bello Sokoto, Agit Singh
American Journal of Plant Sciences (AJPS) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ajps.2013.412A3015
Abstract:

Field experiments were conducted during 2009/10 and 2010/2011 dry seasons at the Fadama Teaching and Research Farm of the Usmanu Danfodiyo University, Sokoto, in the Sudan Savanna ecological zone of Nigeria (latitude 13°01'N; longitude 5°15'E, altitude of 350 m above sea level) to study the effect of water stress, sowing date and cultivar on yield and yield components of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.). The treatments consisted of factorial combination of water stress at three critical growth stages which was imposed by withholding water at tillering, flowering, grain filling and control (no stress), four sowing dates (21st November, 5th December, 19th December and 2nd January) and two bread wheat cultivar (Star 11 TR 77173/SLM and Kuaz/Weaver), laid out in a split-plot design with three replications. Water stress and date of sowing were assigned to the main-plot, while variety was assigned to the sub-plots. Result revealed that water stress at tillering significantly reduced spike length and grains per spike. Whereas, water stress at flowering and grain filling significantly reduced 1000-grain weight, grain yield and harvest index. Results also indicated significant (P < 0.05)

5% Ibuprofen Iontophoresis Compared with Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation in the Management of Knee Osteoarthritis: A Feasibility Study  [PDF]
Ajediran I. Bello, Shika Kuwornu
Open Journal of Therapy and Rehabilitation (OJTR) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/ojtr.2014.24022
Abstract: Objective: The study compared the inclusions of 5% ibuprofen iontophoresis and Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve stimulation (TENS) in the management of osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee joint. Subjects and Methods: Patients diagnosed with knee OA and referred for physiotherapy at a tertiary health facility in Accra, Ghana participated in the study. They were alternately assigned into either TENS or iontophoresis groups. Patients in TENS Group received conventional TENS mode while those in iontophoresis group were treated with 5% ibuprofen iontophoresis using galvanic electrical current. Both protocols were performed twice weekly for six weeks in addition to their prescribed therapeutic exercises. 15-minute walking time, Numerical Rating Scale and Goniometer were used as the main outcome measures to determine subjects’ walking speed, pain and active range of motion (AROM) respectively. Treatment evaluation was performed at baseline, week 3 and week 6 by an independent assessor. Comparisons of variables within and between groups were tested using Friedman’s mean rank and Mann-Whitney U tests respectively at p < 0.05. Results: Participants in both groups were not significantly different in age (p = 0.460), height (p = 0.548) and weight (p = 0.810). Significant improvements were recorded for walking speed (p = 0.001), pain (p = 0.001) and AROM (p = 0.001) of thesubjects within groups. However, between group comparison of the treatment variables showed no significant differences (p > 0.05) for all the outcome measures. Conclusion: 5% ibuprofen iontophoresis and TENS add equal therapeutic value in the management of knee OA. Consideration of both modalities as adjuncts to therapeutic exercises is therefore worthwhile for managing the condition.
A Review of Crop Growth Simulation Models as Tools for Agricultural Meteorology  [PDF]
Kazeem O. Rauff, Rasaq Bello
Agricultural Sciences (AS) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/as.2015.69105
Abstract: The Earth’s land resources are finite, whereas the number of people that the land must support increases rapidly, this situation has been a great concern in the area of agriculture. Crop production must be increased to meet the rapidly growing food demands through sophisticated agricultural processes, while it is important to protect other natural resources and the environment. New agricultural research is needed to provide additional information to farmers, policy makers and other decision makers on how to accomplish sustainable agriculture over the wide variations in climate change around the world. Therefore many researchers have over the years shown interest in finding ways to estimate the yield of crops before harvest. This paper reviews some of the crop growth models that have been successfully developed and used over time. The applications of crop growth models in agricultural meteorology, the role that climate changes play in these models and few of the successfully used crop models in agro-meteorology are also discussed in detail.
HACIA UNA POéTICA DE SOLEDAD FARI?A: PROTOTEXTO Y ESCRITURA CIFRADA EN LA VOCAL DE LA TIERRA
Bello,Javier;
Revista chilena de literatura , 2009, DOI: 10.4067/S0718-22952009000200003
Abstract: this paper examines the mythogenesic character ofthe story "al alba " from the book otro cuento de pájaros (santiago: las dos fridas, 1999) by soledad fari?a, seen as aprototext and a paralel to the "writing " ofthe book that in afragmentary way -under the constant questioning ofthe means of representation and the perceptive capacity to be found in this poem- is realizedin the trilogy entitled la vocal de la tierra (santiago: cuarto propio, 1999), a book that includes the collections ofpoems el primer libro (santiago: amaranto, 1985), albricia (santiago: archivo, 1988) and en amarillo oscuro (santiago: surada, 1994); the trilogy thus becomes a new holy scripture -an alternative to the judeo-christian and patriar-chal book- which can be identifiedwith the prehispanic culture and is focused in the female gender that constitutes the subject in a protolesbic relation with the mother, as an offering to the iniciating goddess, and as a member ofthe couple ofamazon lovers.
FMI y Banco Mundial: Se profundiza la crisis
Bello,Walden;
Revista Venezolana de Economía y Ciencias Sociales , 2006,
Abstract: motivated by the spring meeting between the imf and the world bank in washington d.c., this article offers an analysis of both institutions. as a result of the 1997 asian crisis, for which the imf had a direct responsibility, this financial institution never recovered its earlier legitimacy. this situation is reflected in latin america where two important borrowers - argentina and brazil - opted to pay off their outstanding debts in order to become independent of the imf. actions like this have precipitated important financial problems in the institution. the world bank, while not weighed down with such a negative image, is nevertheless undergoing an institutional crisis in which its own financial crisis plays an important role. in the light of this negative diagnosis, the author analyzes the options for the institutions and the tasks faced by those who criticize them.
Environmental Sustainability of Some Cropping Systems in the Humid Tropics.
WB Bello
African Research Review , 2008,
Abstract: One of the greatest challenges facing agriculture in the tropics is the need to develop viable cropping systems for the rained uplands that are capable of ensuring increased and sustained crop production with minimum degradation of the non- renewable soil resource base. Increased population has reduced the effectiveness of shifting cultivation and other Traditional systems for sustainable farming and this gave way to improved practices. Cropping systems, therefore aimed at maintaining soil fertility with reduced effects on the environment. The main cropping systems in the humid are influenced by climatic situation and the type of crop grown, which mainly depend on crop diversification. Results from most findings reviewed in this paper had shown that there was no one size fits cropping system that can be use for sustainability of the humid environment but the best approach was the diversification of both traditional and modern cropping systems. The transition to systems which are both sustainable and sufficiently intense to support the increasing density of human population calls for attention on the cropping systems to be adopted. Hence, this paper focuses on exploring some cropping systems management for their sustainability in the humid tropics. African Research Review Vol. 2 (3) 2008: pp. 262-277
