ANALYSIS OF THE NUTRITIONAL VALUES OF FEED COMPOUNDED FROM LOCALLY AVAILABLE MATERIALS (UNIVERSITY OF CALABAR FISH FARM AS A CASE STUDY)

ABSTRACT This project details the results of a research work carried out to develop fish feed compounded from locally available materials in the institute of oceanography fish farm and analyzed its nutritional values, in the biochemistry department all in the University of Calabar. On the basis of the feed production, it is recommended that the  feeding regime of the animal (fish) for intended culture is known, a dry diet formulation of two distinct feed lines was produced (fingerli...

A COMPARATIVE STUDY OF STUDENTS ACADEMIC CONCEPTS USING JAMB SCORES AND CGPA, (A CASE OF BENUE STATE UNIVERSITY, MAKURDI)

ABSTRACTThis research compare the students’ academic performance using JAMB scores and CGPA inBenue state University Makurdi, and the level at which the divergence in grades started is ofparamount importance. Two faculties in the institution were selected. The multiple regressionanalysis carried  out  shows that  JAMB scores as  well as  yearly  GPAs can predict  the  finalCGPA. From the student (t) distribution it was observed that the model contribu...

THE DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION OF AN ANTENNA BOOSTER (WI-FI ANTENNA BOOSTER)

ABSTRACT   Wi-Fi signals are susceptible to signal loss as they travel hence Wi-Fi users are rarely completely satisfied with the signal strength offered by the off-the-shelf Wi-Fi cards, routers and access points. This project research intends to introduce a device which can provide Wi-Fi users with high signal strength and at a lower cost in order to enable them have a seamless, uninterrupted and reliable communication. This project includes the steps for Biquad antenna constructi...

NUTRITIONAL AND ANTI-NUTRITIONAL CONTENTS OF INGREDIENTS USED IN PREPARING GRANULATED DUMPLING (DAMBU)

ABSTRACTNutritional and antinutritional content of ingredient used in preparing dambu were determined by proximate composition, vitamins, minerals and antinutritional contents analysis. Maize and Moringa flowers were used as the experimental samples and the work was conducted in triplicate which resulted in obtaining the experimental result in mean and standard deviation. Appreciable amount of nutritive composition were obtain in the used maize and Moringa samples. While the antinutritional c...

THE ADAMS-BASHFORTH ITERATIVE SCHEME FOR INITIAL VALUE PROBLEMS

ABSTRACTIn this project work, we studied the Adams-Bashforth scheme for solving initial value problems. We gave an indebt explanation on the Adam-Bashforth scheme, its consistency, stability, and convergence, the two and three step methods were also derived. Numerical solutions were obtained using four (4) examples.TABLE OF CONTENTS Cover page                                 i         &nbs...

THE STATISTICAL ANALYSIS OF THE EFFECTS OF SOME FACTORS INFLUENCING HYPERTENSION (A CASE STUDY OF UNIVERSITY OF ILORIN TEACHING HOSPITAL (UITH), ILORIN) 2007 – 2012

ABSTRACTThis research work examines the effects of some factors influencing Hypertension, and the data used was obtained from the case-hypertensive patients’ record at the University of Ilorin Teaching Hospital (2007 - 2012). Basically, the target of this research are patients of infections/diseases (e. g. HIV/AIDS) that later developed hypertension. The Pearson’s Chi-square test statistic – testing for independence, the Odds ratio, Relative risk and Pearson’s product moment correlati...

KIDNEY FUNCTION PARAMETERS F PLASMODIUM PASSAGED MICE TREATED WITH CRUDE METHANOLEXTRACT OF AZADIRACHTA INDICA (NEEM)

ABSTRACT Kidney function parameters were evaluated in plasmodium berghei infected mice treated with crude methanol extracts of Azadirachta indica leaves in this study. A total of  forty (40) male albino mice inoculated with quinine resistant strains of plasmodium berghei were randomized into nine (9) groups of (4) animals each while four additional mice serve as the uninfected control group. Group 1 was treated with tween 80, group 2 treated with 10mg/kg chloroquine while groups 3,4...

ON HAMMING’S LINEAR MULTI-STEP FIXED POINT ITERATIVE METHOD AND ITS APPLICATION IN THE SOLUTION OF ORDINARY DIFFERENTIAL EQUATIONS

The linear multi-step method in this work is established to be a numeric fixed point iterative method forsolving the initial value problem.Such that when βk ̸= 0, the method is called implicit or otherwise, it is called an explicit method. In section one, preliminaries of the linear multi-step methods bordering on the truncation errors and consistencyconditions were discussed while section two is devoted to theoretical presentation of the usual Hamming’smethod as a fixed point iterative m...

Thermophysical and Rheological properties of ogi(pap) made from sorghum

This study evaluated the thermo-physical and rheological properties of Ogi produced from varieties of sorghum with different soaking period (12, 24 and 36 hrs.). Sorghum grain steeped for 12, 24 and 36 hrs. was processed into Ogi making use of the traditional method and subsequently dried at 55oC. The Ogi powder obtained was analyzed for functional, thermo-physical, rheological properties and the consumer acceptability was also carried out. The results showed that the bulk density ranged from...

Application of Unbounded Hilbert Linear Operations in Quantum Mechanics

 research work presents an important Banach Space in functional analysis which is known and called Hilbert space. We verified the crucial operations in this space and their applications in physics particularly in quantum mechanics. The operations are restricted to the unbounded linear operators densely defined in Hilbert space which is the case of prime interest in physics, precisely in quantum machines. Precisely, we discuss the role of unbounded linear operators in quantum mechanics partic...

RELEVANCE OF DATA MINING IN HEALTHCARE DELIVERY

Tendency for data mining application in healthcare today is great, because healthcare sector is rich with information, and data mining is becoming a necessity. Healthcare organizations produce and collect large volumes of information on daily basis. Use of information technologies allows automatization of processes for extraction of data that help to get interesting knowledge and regularities, which means the elimination of manual tasks and easier extraction of data directly from electronic r...

THE MECHANOCHEMICAL AND SOLVENT – BASED SYNTHESIS AND CHARACTERIZATION OF 3,4,5-TRIHYDROXYLBENZOIC ACID CU(II) COMPLEXES.

Mechanochemical synthesis of  [Cu(OOCCH3)2(THB)2] and the Mechanochemical synthesis of  [Cu(OOCCH3)2(THB)2] were carried out, and a  brown solid complexes obtained in both experiment was washed in ethanol respectively. The  physical and instrumental characterisation of the complexes carried out revealed that the complexes obtained are the same

BIG DATA ANALYTICS: NIGERIAN HEALTH SECTOR

ABSTRACT The study “Big Data Analytics: Nigerian Health Sector Approach was aimed to examine the health sector if they are using big data analystics in day-to-day activities. The objective of this study was to know whether big data analytics in Nigerian health sector is been implemented or available. The continuous advances in today’s digital universe and integration of computing into virtually every facet of human life are no doubt making the concept of Big Data a ubiquitous ...

AN OVERVIEW OF TUMOUR MARKERS

ABSTRACT Tumor Markers comprise a wide spectrum of biomacromolecules synthesized in excess concentration by a wide variety of neoplastic cells. The markers could be endogenous products of highly active metabolic malignant cells or the products of newly switched on genes, which remained unexpressed in early life or newly acquired antigens at cellular and sub-cellular levels. The appearance of tumor marker and their concentration are related to the genesis and growth of malignant ...
