National Academy of Engineering: Introduction to Open Hardware in Science and Engineering

The articles in this issue look at how the development and use of free and open source hardware (FOSH or simply “open hardware”) are changing the face of science, engineering, business, and law. Free and open source software (FOSS) has proven very successful and now dominates the development of software on a global scale. It is available in source code (open source) and can be used, studied, copied, modified, and redistributed either without restriction or with restrictions only to ensur...

Impacts of Open Source Hardware in Science and Engineering

There is an opportunity to radically reduce the costs of experimental research while improving it by supporting the development of free and open source hardware (FOSH) for science and engineering. By harnessing a scalable open source method, federal funding is spent just once for the development of scientific equipment and then a return on this investment is realized by direct digital replication of scientific devices for only the costs of materials. FOSH for science and engineering has been ...

THE ROLE OF EDUCATION IN ENSURING GENDER EQUALITY AND ITS EFFECT IN THE SOCIETY

ABSTRACTThe main thrust of the study was to examine the role of education in ensuring gender equality and its effect in the society. Specifically, the study was set out to find out how education has changed values and promote gender equality, determine how sex segregation in education is a risk to the society among others.

Towards Quantifiable Metrics Warranting Industry-Wide Corporate Death Penalties

In the singular search for profits, some corporations inadvertently kill humans. If this routinely occurs throughout an industry, it may no longer serve a net positive social purpose for society and should be eliminated. This article provides a path to an objective quantifiable metric for determining when an entire industry warrants the corporate death penalty. First, a theoretical foundation is developed with minimum assumptions necessary to provide evidence for corporate public purposes. Th...

The impact of effective teaching characteristics

This paper investigates the extent to which teacher behaviour in classroom affects student achievement gains in mathematics in Ghana. A representative sample of primary schools from three districts of the Upper East Region of Ghana was selected (n = 73) using stage sampling procedure, and written tests in mathematics were administered to all grade six students at the beginning and end of school year 2013– 2014. Two observation instruments and a student questionnaire were used in collecting ...

Phd Thesis John Bosco Azigwe PhD final

Abstract   One of the key findings of Educational Effectiveness Research (EER) is the importance of the classroom level as a predictor of pupil outcomes. Research from developed countries has therefore centered on the classroom, and classroom processes as an important determinant of students' learning outcomes. Unfortunately, little of this strand of research has been conducted in sub-Saharan African countries, particularly in Ghana. This study is the first of its kind in ...

ISOLATION AND IDENTIFICATION OF HELMINTH PARASITES OF PUBLIC HEALTH IMPORTANCE FROM COMMERCIAL AQUACULTURE PONDS WATER WITHIN KANO METROPOLITAN

A great number and diversity of animal species are capable of parasitizing fish, ranging from microscopic protozoan to grossly visible crustaceans and annelids. In the wild fish, there is large range of parasites but they are usually only present in small numbers, they can be considered a normal finding and rarely cause disease problems (FAO, 2016). In cultured fish, there is a more limited range of parasites but they are often present in much large numbers than seen in the wild. Ther...
