DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION OF A COMPUTERISED POPULATION CENSUS MONITORING SYSTEM. A CASE STUDY OF NATIONAL POPULATION COMMISSION, ENUGU

ABSTRACTThe purpose of the study was to design and implement a computer- based population monitoring system for Enugu State. The researcher critically analyzed the existing census system to sort out the bottlenecks hindering the effective census computation. He went further to design the new system which is capable of solving the census problem within a twinkle of an eye using the computerized identity card. Above all, he crowned his ability by writing a well tested program which is capa...

PROXIMATE AND MINERAL COMPOSITION OF THEOBROMA CACAO BEAN AND SHELL

ABSTRACTThe demand for cocoa beans is growing immensely in the world today due to the increasing consumption of cocoa butter, syrups, pastes and all kinds of chocolates, resulting in the rising of price of beans, which in term encouraging the farmers to increasing their productivity. The cocoa beans used in this project work were obtained from IPELE Farm Owo, in Ondo State, Nigeria. The cocoa beans were sundried after fermentation for 5days and dishelmed. The bean and shell were separately mi...

ABSTRACTA library system is an information system that serves a population of users.  The term “Information system” is normally used in situations where an organization is considered as a whole with respect to its information requirement and information utilization.In a library environment, “indexing has remained the means of text and document identification.  Comprehensively, indexing is a term, which is applied to many compilation and arrangement of text and documents which ...

ANTIBACTERIAL ACTIVITY OF HONEY ON Staphylococcus aureus Escherichia coli and Streptococcus pyogen ISOLATED FROM WOUND

ABSTRACTAntibacterial activity of honey obtained from two different locations in Enugu State (Nsukka & Ugwuaji) Nigeria on Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli and Streptococcus pyogens isolated from wound was studied. Agar well diffusion method was used to determine the antibacterial activity of the honey on the test microorganisms. The result revealed that the two honey samples have heavy antibacterial activities against the test organisms and zones of inhibition were obtained showin...

BIOCONTROL POTENTIAL OF BACILLUS THURINGIENSIS ISOLATED FROM SOIL SAMPLES AGAINST LARVA OF MOSQUITO

ABSTRACTA major challenge for achieving successful mosquito control is overcoming insecticide resistance. Bacillus thuringiensis which is one of the most effective biolarvacide for control of species of mosquitoes and monitoring of larval susceptibility is essential to avoid resistance development. Mosquito larvacidal activity of Bacillus thuringiensis was assessed by isolating them from ecologically different soil habitats in and around Enugu metropolis. The isolate organisms were confirmed ...

BLUE BRAIN

ABSTRACTToday scientists are in research to create an artificial brain that can think, response, take decision, and keep anything in memory. Human brain is the most valuable creation of God. The man is intelligent because of the brain. “Blue brain” is the name of the world’s first virtual brain. That means a machine can function as human brain. The main aim is to upload human brain into machine. So that man can think, take decision without any effort. After the death of the body, the vi...

COMPARATIVE ANALYSIS OF PIPEBORNE WATER AND OTHER SOURCES OF WATER WITHIN ENUGU METROPOLIS FOR HUMAN CONSUMPTION.

ABSTRACTComparative examination of three main sources of water supply in Independence layout Enugu was carried out with a view to determine their levels of contamination of bacteria. The sources of water examined are tap water, well water and stream water. The pour plate method was used to examine the water samples. Bacteria isolated from the water samples include coliforms especially Escherichia coli. Stream water and well water were found to contain bacterial isolates unlike the tap water t...

THE ROLE OF NITRIC OXIDE IN THE IMMUNE SYSTEM

 ABSTRACTNitric oxide is produced in high amount from the break down of arginine by a group of enzyme called nitric oxide synthase. Nitric oxide is an intercellular messenger that has been recognized as one of the versatile player in the immune system. Cells of the innate immune system such as macrophages, neutrophil and natural killer use pattern recognition receptors to recognize the molecular patters associated with pathogens. The specific role nitric oxide plays depend on the place o...

EFFECT OF DIFFERENT CARBON SOURCES ON THE GROWTH OF ANTIMICROBIAL PRODUCING Bacillus Species IN Citrillus vugaris.

ABSTRACTEffect of different carbon sources on the growth of antimicrobial producing Bacillus species in ogiri-egusi sold in Ogbeta, Orie, Artisian, Kenyatta, Enugu State were evaluated using standard microbiological and analytical methods. 12 bacteria were isolated and identified such as Bacillus subtilis,(33.33), Bacillus pumulis (41.66), Bacillus licheniformis (25) were identified based on their colony biochemical characteristics.The isolates of the highest occurrences is bacillus pumilus. ...

HEPATITIS C VIRUS AMONG PREGNANT WOMEN PEOPLE LIVING WITH HIV AIDS ATTENDING CLINIC AT UNTH ITUKUOZALLA

ABSTRACTA total of 50 blood (30 pregnant and 20 HIV) samples were obtained from pregnant women and PLWHA attending clinic at UNTH Ituku-ozalla. Samples were screened for hepatitis c viral infection using the rapid one step hepatitis C virus test strip. Two (6.66%) pregnant women were positive and four (20%) HIV patients were positive for Hepatitis C, giving an overall prevalence rate of (26.7%). The infection was the same in male (3) and in female (3). Those aged 23-34 years recorded a higher...
