Thetotal “persons with disability” were 190. Total numbers of disabilities found in the study were 232. Theoverall prevalence of disabilities was 3.90%. There was a statistically significant association between age,education, occupation, per-capita income and prevalence of disability. The main types of disabilities werevisual disability (41.80%) hearing and speech disability (22.41%), locomotor disability (19.39) and mentalretardation and mental illness (16.40%).

Role of MR and digital mammography for screening
DD Dershaw
Breast Cancer Research , 2007, DOI: 10.1186/bcr1689
Abstract: Digital mammography images the breast using the identical information obtained in screen-film mammography. The image is processed, stored and displayed electronically. This conveys several advantages over film techniques, but the approval of digital mammography by the US Food and Drug Administration has been based on comparable ability to detect cancer, not any diagnostic advantage.Four prospective studies comparing digital and film mammography on the same patients have shown that for population-based screening there is no advantage for digital over film. The last and largest of these studies [1] initially reported an advantage for several subgroups of women for digital screening. Later analysis of data from this study, however, concluded that only women with dense breasts may benefit and that screening of entire populations with digital mammography is excessively costly and not beneficial.Analysis of MR as a screening tool has been directed at women with greatly elevated lifetime risk of developing breast cancer. The ability of MR to detect a large percentage of cancers in these women earlier than mammography, sonography or physical examination and at a stage at which they should be curable has been clearly demonstrated. This has lead the American Cancer Society, along with others, to recommend the use of MR to annually screen women with at least a 20% lifetime risk of developing breast cancer starting at age 25 years. Those at less risk were not included due to lack of supporting data and concern over excessive biopsies in those women.
Recent Trends and Patterns in Nigeria’s Industrial Development
DD Ajayi
Africa Development , 2007,
Abstract: This paper analyses recent trend and spatial patterns of manufacturing in Nigeria. In particular, the paper shows that industrial development in the country involved considerable artisanal crafts firms in the early stages and grew progressively in number over the years to large-scale manufacturing. The pattern of the distribution of manufacturing industries at the city level indicates that there is a marked concentration of manufacturing establishments in the southern part of the country, and especially Lagos, Ibadan and Benin in the southwest. Other locations of relative high concentration of industrial establishments are Kano in the North; and Enugu and Port Harcourt in the southeast. Although, this paper shows that production subcontracting increased and varied amongst subcontracting firms, production subcontracting relationships are concentrated in a few locations. The paper concludes that the spatial pattern could change if industrialists adopt the strategy of industrial linkages, and especially production subcontracting which has become a driving force in contemporary industrial development efforts in the world today. It is expected that the situation could be better enhanced given the ongoing privatisation of industrial concerns in Nigeria.
“The Arabs” in the ecclesiastical historians of the 4th/5th centuries: Effects on contemporary Christian- Muslim relations
DD Grafton
HTS Theological Studies/Teologiese Studies , 2008,
Abstract: Historical inquiry into the origin and history of “the Arabs” has long been a part of Western Orientalist literature. However, Christian scholars from the 7th century onward sought to understand the rise of Islam from within a Biblical framework. This article looks at how the early church historians of the 4th and 5th centuries viewed “the Arabs” and passed on those images to their ecclesiastical descendents. It aims to argue that the pejorative image of “the Arabs” as uncultured pagan barbarians of late antiquity was extended to Muslims in the 7th century and transferred into the Latin derogatory term “the Saracen”. This negative image has been perpetuated in Western Christian literature and continues to color Western Evangelical Christian and Dispensational images of “the Arabs”. The article shows that such perceptions have as much to do with the cultural stereotypes disseminated from the ecclesiastical historians as they do with Biblical hermeneutics.

A detailed analysis of evolution of water rights in South Africa: An account of three and a half centuries from 1652 AD to present
DD Tewari
Water SA , 2009,
Abstract: This study reviews the changing scene of water rights in South Africa over the last three and a half centuries and concludes that they have come full circle, with some modifications, since the invoking of Dutch rule in the Cape in 1652 AD. The study stipulates that adoption of a modern rights structure is a welcome change and a progressive step taken by the democratic government; however, its success depends to a great extent on the institutional efficiency of the state which performs the role of trustee or custodian of the water resource. The responsibilities of trusteeship with respect to managing water rights or permits are met through a decentralised decision-making system. The management of water rights/permits thus depends on the administrative and judicial efficiency of organisations and government departments. Therein lurks the danger of corruption, bureaucratic inefficiency, and insecurity of permits, and hence enough potential to stifle the long-term incentives to invest in the water sector.
Should commercial forestry in South Africa pay for water? Valuing water and its contribution to the industry
DD Tewari
Water SA , 2005,
Abstract: Water is a limiting input/factor in the production of timber in the commercial forestry industry of South Africa. Being a water-stressed country, South Africa has opted for demand management strategies which suggest pricing of water as a commodity. Since commercial forestry is one of the big users of the country's water resources, it is time to decide whether the industry should now pay for water or not. The questions that need to be answered are: If yes, how much should the industry pay? Is the current proposed charge for water a fair representation of the value of water in timber production? The value of water used by the commercial forestry is essential information and is very much needed for making water-demand management decisions. The results of the study indicate that water values are much higher than the water management charge levied on the commercial forestry, confirming large subsidies being transferred to the industry. This ushers in a debate on whether South Africa should have more commercial forests or significantly convert them to grasslands. Water SA Vol.31 (3) 2005: pp.319-326
