Activist-driven innovation: uma história interpretativa do software livre
Carlotto, Maria Caramez;Ortellado, Pablo;
Revista Brasileira de Ciências Sociais , 2011, DOI: 10.1590/S0102-69092011000200005
Abstract: the understanding that there are two distinct regimes for the production of software is increasingly common in literature. what is not so common, and is therefore the most original contribution of this paper is, on the one hand, the historical approach to the configuration of those regimes and, on the other hand, the analysis of the factors determining the technical and commercial success of one regime over the other. furthermore, we have worked with two additional hypotheses: first, that the development of free software historically belongs to the public/scientific knowledge production regime - i.e., free software mimicking the organization of the scientific community because it has its historical roots in it; and secondly, that in a "market competition" environment the public and scientific regime has proven more efficient and has therefore forced companies working in the private/business regime to adopt free or open source software.
Environmental Degradation, Livelihood and Conflicts: A Focus on the Implications of the Diminishing Water Resources of Lake Chad for North-Eastern Nigeria
FC Onuoha
African Journal on Conflict Resolution , 2008,
Abstract: Lake Chad has been a source of economic livelihood for millions of people inhabiting the catchment areas in the four riparian states, namely: Cameroon, Chad, Niger and Nigeria. However, in the last four decades, the size of the lake including its resources has continued to diminish. The impact of this depletion is being felt by Lake Chad basin population who depend on the lake for their means of livelihood. This paper focuses on the diminishing natural resources of Lake Chad as an empirical referent to analyse the relationship that can develop among natural resource diminution, livelihood and conflicts. Of particular attention is the incidence of conflict between and among fishermen, pastoralists, farmers and sometimes state security agents, and the tendency of the conflicts to degenerate into large scale intra-ethnic, intra-state and interstate conflicts. The paper further draws attention to the implications of the diminishing water resources of the lake for the North-East zone of Nigeria, and makes recommendations suggested by the analysis.

Assessment of some locally developed technologies for shortening the retting time of cassava
FC Ogbo
African Journal of Biotechnology , 2006,
Abstract: The need to shorten the time taken for cassava tuber to ret has arisen because of increased demand for processed cassava products occasioned by population growth in developing countries. Locally developed technologies aimed at this objective which involved the addition of chemical substances to steep water were assessed to determine their efficacy. Retting time measured in hours was determined during 25 retting trials using separately in each set, a control and 0.5 ml kerosene/L, 1 g trona/L and 10 g nails/L of steep water. The results reveal that addition of chemicals to various extents influenced growth of microbes and production of organic acids during cassava retting. Trona inhibited detoxification of cyanogenic glycosides while kerosene and nails did not. Statistical analysis of retting time data showed that nails were efficacious in shortening retting time but that kerosene and trona were not. The mechanism of action of nails probably involved enhancement of growth and enzyme activity of microbes involved in production of macerating enzymes responsible for softening of tubers during retting. A better understanding of this process will be useful in developing safer and efficacious chemicals for shortening the retting time of cassava
Economic importance and growth rate of broiler chickens served fluted pumpkin (Telfaria occidentalis) leaves extract
FC Nworgu
African Journal of Biotechnology , 2007,
Abstract: An 8-week experiment was conducted to assess the weight gain and the economic importance of broiler chickens served fluted pumpkin leaf extract (FPLE) during the late dry season in Ibadan, Nigeria. One hundred and twenty day-old Anak 2000 broiler chicks were randomly distributed to 5 treatments which contained 0, 30, 60, 90 and 120 ml of FPLE per litre of water for A, B, C, D and E, respectively, in a completely randomized design. Each treatment was replicated three times. The birds were fed with the same starter and finisher diets. The feed and water were served ad libitum. The experiment lasted for 8 weeks. The FPLE is rich in protein (21.31%), ash (10.92%) and low in crude fibre, oxalate and tannin. Results of average body weight gain was significantly (P<0.05) different, which was least in control (1676.19 g/bird) compared to the birds served 30-120 ml of FPLE (1833.09-2089.70 g/bird). The cost of feed out of the total cost of production was least on the birds served 30- 120 ml of FPLE (61.79%) unlike control (66.21%). Benefit cost ratio (BCR) was best on the birds served 30-120 ml FPLE/l of water (1.91:1-2.06:1) compared to control (1.76:1). The net profit (NP) and cost of feed per kilogramme live weight gain were N307.13 and N87.50 /kg for the birds served 120 ml FPLE/litre of water compared to control (N208.17 and N96.52/kg), respectively. An average NP of N273.56 was made for the broiler chickens served 30-120 ml FPLE/l of water with reference to control (N208.17), which was a difference of N64.39 per bird. For improved growth rate and higher profit margin, it is advisable to serve broiler chickens 120 ml FPLE/litre of water during the late dry season. This is a simple, affordable and available technology for poultry farmers most especially during the harsh climatic period of the year.

FC Iheukwumere
Journal of Agriculture and Social Research (JASR) , 2008,
Abstract: The effects of Ovine FSH, Porcine FSH (FSH-P) and HMG treatments on embryo generation and embryo quality were studied in West African dwarf goats The results on the number of corpora lutea (CL) on the ovary was (10.12 + 0.06) in FSH-P and (11.35 + 1.75) in FSH-O. However, they differed significantly (P < 0.05) from HMG (8.02 + 2.15) in CL values. The number of embryos recovered in FSH-P (7.25 + 0.04) and FSH-O (7.85 + 0.06) were similar (P > 0.05), but differed significantly (P < 0.05) from HMG (5.15 + 0.03). The ova/embryo wastage was not significantly different (P > 0.05) between T1 FSH-P (14.75 + 0.06%) and T2 FSH-O (13.54 + 0.14%), however, they differed significantly (P < 0.05) from T3 HMG (18.24 + 0.10%). Embryo recovery rate of goats treated with T1 FSH-P (85.02 + 0.06%) however, differed significantly (P < 0.05) from T3 HMG (68.24 + 1.24%). Goats treated with T2 FSH-O recorded higher fertilized embryos of 12.45 + 1.65 which differed significantly (P < 0.05) from T1 FSH-P (7.-0 + 2.15) and T3 HMG (6.16 + 1.12). The number of non-transferable embryos showed no significant difference (P > 0.05) between the treatment groups. The results of this study indicated that FSH-O is the gonadotrophin of choice for goat superovulation.

FC Iheukwumere
Journal of Agriculture and Social Research (JASR) , 2008,
Abstract: The effect of different intensities of semen collection on semen characteristics, cations and fructose concentrations of the seminal plasma in West African dwarf bucks was studied. Twelve clinically healthy and matured bucks weighing between 25.6 – 35.7 kg were randomly allocated to four treatment groups in a completely randomized design (CRD). Semen quality (expressed as progressive motility and percentage of morphologically normal/life sperm cells) and sperm quantity (expressed as sperm concentration and semen volume), the cations (sodium, potassium, calcium, and magnesium) and fructose concentrations in the seminal plasma were the parameters evaluated in each buck. The highest sperm motility and percentage live sperm cells were observed when semen was ejaculated once per week. As compared with twice per week, three times per week and four times per week, the once a week ejaculations in semen concentration and volume were highest. The cations and fructose levels of the seminal plasma were highest at the once per week ejaculations. The results of this study indicate that once per week semen ejaculation enhances the fertility of West African dwarf bucks.
