The Subtle Plague: Materialistic Visage of Neocolonialism and Its Consequences in Armah’s Fragments
OV Ogbeide
African Research Review , 2011,
Abstract: This paper examines the materialistic visage of neocolonialism in Ayi Kwei Armah’s Fragments. While neocolonialism is often seen in African leaders’ role as stooges of the erstwhile colonial powers in order to perpetuate themselves in office, this paper argues that the masses’ unbridled penchant for foreign goods and life styles is itself another form of neocolonialism, albeit subtle. This paper not only sees this development as part of the “new realism” which came in the wake of political independence but also posits that the way forward in the continent may lie in nonconformity, its repercussions notwithstanding and a return to the way of production, human relationship and reciprocity as symbolized by the visionary Naana.
Prenatal Ultrasound Diagnosis Of Discordant Occipital Encephalocele In Multiple Pregnancy - A Case Report
OU Ogbeide
Benin Journal of Postgraduate Medicine , 2008,
Abstract: Background: Pre-natal sonographic examination is the primary modality of imaging in pregnancy which allows direct, real-time assessment of the fetus, and accurate diagnosis of congenital anomalies. One such anomaly is encephalocele. Case Report:The case of a 38 year old gravida 14, Para 13+1 with a diagnosis of discordant encephalocele multiple (twin) pregnancy made during routine sonographic examination is presented. One twin showed showed an occipital skull defect in association with a sonolucent area with well-defined margins continuous with the fetal scalp. There were no other associated anomalies. Conclusion:Caution must be taken when performing a pre-natal sonographic examination to rule out congenital anomalies. This is important for the management of the pregnancies. KEYWORDS: Ultrasonography, Intrauterine twin pregnancy, Encephalocele
Ultrasound Mis-Diagnosis Of Biliary Sludge As A Gall Bladder Neoplasm-A Case Report
OU Ogbeide
Benin Journal of Postgraduate Medicine , 2008,
Abstract: Background: Cholecystosonography is the Ultrasound examination of the gall bladder and ducts. It has the advantage of not using ionising radiation, but may be operator dependent. Thus misinterpretation of the images may sometimes occur especially in the untrained hands. Case Report: A 24 year old male student was admitted into the medical ward of the University of Benin Teaching Hospital (UBTH) with symptoms of weakness, fever, nausea, pruritus, passage of yellowish urine, jaundice of about 4 weeks. Initial ultrasound examination done by a private practitioner interpreted the image findings as gall bladder tumor. Subsequently, the patient was referred to the UBTH, Nigeria. There the repeat scan done revealed the diagnosis of biliary sludge. Patient was treated appropriately. Conclusion: By this report, the possibility of misinterpretation of ultrasound images is documented, especially by untrained personnel is highlighted. KEY WORDS: Cholecystosonography, biliary sludge, Interpretation, Misdiagnosis.

Inter-Agency Cooperation in Combating Terrorism in Nigeria: Enhancing Existing Instruments and Frameworks in the Security Services
U-E Ogbeide
African Research Review , 2011,
Abstract: In recent times, terrorism has become one of the most dangerous threats to peace and order nationally and globally. It is so pervasive that no country on earth can claim immunity from its violent acts of bombing, shooting, armed robbery, kidnapping, hostage-taking and bank robbery. This paper examines this global human phenomenon through the analysis of its various definitions, its nature and consequences. Based on the analysis, the paper proffers a ten-point policy recommendation for enhancing the existing instruments and frameworks in the security services that would foster interagency cooperation in combating terrorism in Nigeria.
Should non acute and recurrent headaches have neuroimaging before review by a Neurologist?- A review in a Southern Nigerian Tertiary Hospital
FA Imarhiagbe, E Ogbeide
Annals of African Medicine , 2011,
Abstract: Background: Headache is a common complaint in general practice and it is known that most headaches are primary and that the yield of neuroimaging like cranial computed tomography (CT) in headache is generally low. In this study, we were able to demonstrate that the yield of neuroimaging in non-acute and recurrent headache could be higher if cases are reviewed first by a specialist Neurologist before cranial CT. Method: Seventy-four cases that were referred to the specialist neurology clinic with complaints of chronic and recurrent headaches without focal neurological defi cit that had CT scan were reviewed consecutively using the short form of the International Classification of Headache Disorders second edition (ICHD 2) criteria after their demographics of age, sex were captured, to find out the proportion and characteristics of study cases that had identifiable cranial lesions on cranial CT scan. All cases were reviewed by a specialist Neurologist before CT scan and all CT fi lms were reviewed by a specialist Radiologist. Age, sex and the distribution of CT findings were described from a frequency table and mean age of study cases with and without identifiable lesions on CT were compared with t-test for any signifi cant difference and the effect of gender on the presence of identifiable lesions was tested with chi square and the agreement between clinical and CT diagnoses were tested on kappa statistics. Results: (1) Mean age of cases was 37.55 (22.06) years. (2) No signifi cant effect of gender was found on intracranial lesions (P = 0.345). (3) Intracranial lesions were found in 47.3% of cases and the mean age was higher compared to cases with normal fi ndings on cranial CT (P = 0.019). (4) Clinical and CT diagnoses agreed in 56.2% of the cases (P = 0.000). Conclusion: The high yield of intracranial lesions may be accounted for by the method of selection of cases for cranial CT.
The Characteristics and Potential Use of Recycled Concrete Aggregate
S.O. Ogbeide
Journal of Engineering and Applied Sciences , 2012,
Abstract: This study present describes an investigation carried out to study the characteristics and potential use of recycled concrete aggregate in the manufacture of new concrete. Up to now, recyclable materials produced from road demolition have mainly been re-used in low quality applications in road construction. Two types of recycled aggregate namely recycled concrete and debris were taken from demolition waste and tested for characterization of aggregate and also for the mix-designs of concrete to achieve better mechanical strength. The results obtained with the use of the selected type of recycled aggregate shows a real possibility of making concrete from demolition waste which will lead to optimization in concrete production.
Viability of Millet as Adjunct to Malted Barley in Brewing Process
S.O. Ogbeide
Journal of Engineering and Applied Sciences , 2012,
Abstract: This study presents the discussion and result of the assessment of locally available millet as an adjunct to malted barley in wort production for brewery operation. The investigation carried out included formulating models using linear programming to actually optimize productivity in the brewing industries. The use of mainly imported raw material in the brewery industry has both economical and technological merit and will lead to high cost of production and poor utilization of locally available resources which cannot help the Nigeria industry as a developing nation. It was therefore concluded from the work that millet could be used as adjunct to malted barley for wort production leading to a cost reduction of #26.42K.
An Investigation To The Recycling Of Spent Engine Oil
S. O. Ogbeide
Journal of Engineering Science and Technology Review , 2010,
Abstract: This paper describes an investigation carried out to study the recycling of spent engine oil as a result of indiscriminate disposalof the spent engine oil into the surrounding which has contributed immensely to the level of environmental pollutionin our society and nation at large. This paper identify a unique method by which the spent oil is adequately recycled for reuse,the cost of recycling is relatively low compared from its production from crude oil as the numbers of purification stagesare reduced. From the research carried out it was discovered that when 25 liters of spent oil was recycled appropriately, 10liters of lubricating oil was obtained from the process whereas 220 liters of crude oil would be required to produce the same10 liters of oil.

S. O. Ogbeide
Journal of Engineering Science and Technology Review , 2010,
Abstract: The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has predicted global rise in temperature and carbon dioxide is amajor greenhouse gas responsible for global warming. The cement industry contributes approximately five per cent of thetotal CO2 emitted worldwide.Ewekoro cement Plant, located in Ewekoro, Ogun State was used as a case study to evaluate the results of various modificationson cement plants operation that can impact on the plant CO2 emissions. An economic model which objective is tohighlight the best selection strategy to reduce CO2 emissions with the least cost was developed using the industry data aspart of this paper. The cement Plant achieved a significant result of 23.6 per cent reduction in CO2 emissions per tonne ofcement produced. The results were achieved mainly by applying a progressive approach prioritizing project implementationeffort and feasibility.
