THE IMPACT OF ICT IN THE CONDUCT OF ELECTIONS IN NIGERIA

There is no gainsaying that technology has drastically reduced incidences of electoral malpractices such as: ballot stuffing, result sheet mutilation, manipulations, over voting, alteration of result sheets and hijacking of ballot boxes in the history of Nigeria elections. The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has employed a number of innovative approaches to improve the management and conduct of elections in the country. As years pass by, INEC gets more sophisticated w...

SCIENTIFIC REVIEW ON THEORY AND MECHANISM OF NEUTRON ACTIVATION ANALYSIS IN GEOLOGICAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL SAMPLES

ABSTRACT This study described the theory and mechanism for the simultaneous determination of major, minor and trace elements involved in Neutron Activation Analysis, applied to geological and environmental samples as a sensitive and non−destructive tool. Using Neutron Source, the gamma−rays emitted due to neutron capture have been applied for the investigation of the elemental constituents and concentrations of major, minor and trace elements in such samples. Neutron Activation A...

Gender Discrimination And Academic Achievement of Female Students In Some Selected Senior Secondary Schools In Karu Local Government Area, Nasarawa State, Nigeria

Abstract- The purpose of the study was to find out the impact of gender discrimination on the academic achievement of female student; the study was carried out using five senior secondary schools in Karu LGA, Nasarawa State as case study ex-post facto research design was used for the study. Finding revealed that by overall performance, male students performed much better as compared to their female counterparts. Results shows, teacher’s negative attitudes and behaviors and, time wasti...

The need for Information and communication technology in Tertiary institutions curriculum content, implementation as policy and activity in Nigeria.

ABSTRACTThis paper review the need for information and communication technology (ICT) in tertiary institutions curriculum content, implementation as policy and activity in Nigeria tertiary education in order to meet up with the educational goals. This is carried out in respect to the notion with ICT in curriculum, implementation by Koehler and Mishra (2009), Information and communication technology strategy by Johnson and scholes (2004). The paper begins with an introduction of ICT concept a...

Physics Lecturers' self efficacy and use of information and communication technology for research activities in tertiary institutions in Minna, Niger State, Nigeria.

ABSTRACTThis study determined Physics lecturers’ self-efficacy and use of Information and Communication Technology for research activities. Self-efficacy and use of ICT for research activities by the Physics lecturers was investigated. 32 numbers of Physics lecturers were selected as sample from two tertiary institutions obtained by means of purposive sampling technique. The two tertiary institutions were assigned because of the fact that they are the schools within Minna metropolis where P...

Computation of the Earth's Gravity Anomalies of Southwestern Nigeria Using the Gravity Model Equation

This seminar report is meant to determine the Earth’s gravity anomalies of south-western Nigeria using the gravity model equation. This development has led to the formulation of rigorous mathematical analysis. The gravity anomalies data over the area of study are generated from a computer program written in MAT-LAB, which is then contoured to produce a 3-Dimensional anomaly maps.

NUCLEAR MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING (NMRI)

AbstractThis paper investigates the physics concepts, basic principles, basic procedure, merit and demerit of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Imaging.  As a widely used medical technique, this type of imaging utilizes the inherent magnetic properties of protons in human cells.  Superconducting magnets are generally enclosed in a large housing unit to scan various parts of the body. Although there are no biological hazards yet associated with this technique, extreme caution must be...
