Determination of Ground Water Potential Using Electrical Resistivity Method

A resistivity survey was carried out to study groundwater potential in Ignatius Ajuru University of Education in Rumuolumini Town, Rivers State of Nigeria with the aim of determining the depth, thickness, resistivity and lithology at which potable water can be obtained. Two Vertical Electrical Soundings were conducted using the Schlumberger configuration. The VES data were subjected to an iteration software (IPI2WIN) which showed that the area is composed of top soil, clay, mud and sand. B...

The aftermath of COVID-19 pandemic in the Nigerian Society

The world economy has been crippled by a novel coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) which also put over 210 countries of the world in the map of epidemiology, in this case, our country Nigeria and Ekiti State as well is not left behind.As all schools are forced to close to curb the spread of this virus, students are at home, saving the world, trying and putting things in places.Executive of Social Sciences Students' Association (SOSSA), Ekiti State University chapter duly led by Hon. Comr. Aba...

Classification and Challenges of Cloud Computing

Cloud Computing trend is rapidly increasing that has a technology link with Grid Computing, Utility Computing, Distributed Computing. Cloud service providers such as Amazon IBM, Google’s Application, Microsoft Azure etc., provide the users to developing applications in cloud environment and to access them from anywhere. Cloud sever provider’s access data via remote server in cloud computing. Providing security is a major concern as the data is transmitted to the remote server over a chann...

Hybridoma Technology

  INTRODUCTION: Hybridoma technology is a method for producing large numbers of identical antibodies (also called monoclonal antibodies ). This process starts by injecting a mouse (or other mammal) with an antigen that provokes an immune response. A type of white blood cell, the B cell, produces antibodies that bind to the injected antigen. These antibody producing B-cells are then harvested from the mouse and, in turn, fused with immortal B cell cancer cells, a myeloma ,  to prod...

Design of an Online Clearance System for the Graduating studentS

ABSTRACT Online  clearance  system for graduating students is  an  internet  base  research work  that will help build an  effective  information management  for  schools.  It  is aimed  at  developing  a  computer  software  system  that  replaces  the  manual method of clearance for graduating students. The designed software will serve as a more reliable and effective means of undertaking students clearance, remove all forms  of  delay  and  stre...

In this project I will be written a full report on the application of ICT on the marketing research.The project analysed the impact of good marketing research on of the level of market share of an organization; exami...

The Rationale, Effects and Socio economic Benefits of Computer Programming on Technological Development

ABSTRACT Various technological and social developments have been reshaping almost all aspects of human life. Some of the knowledge, skills, abilities, competencies and personal characteristics that were necessary for life in previous centuries have now become irrelevant, while others have become critical. The majority of these changes are associated with the proliferation of new technologies, particularly Computer Programming. The capacity to apply ICT in various areas of human l...

Synthesizing Of Copper Nano Particle

AbstractDevelopment of improved methods for the synthesis of copper nanoparticles is of high priority for the advancement of material science and technology. Herein, starch-protected zero-valent copper (Cu) nanoparticles have been successfully synthesized by a novel facile route. The method is based on the chemical reduction in aqueous copper salt using ascorbic acid as reducing agent at low temperature (80 °C). X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy and energy-dispersive X-ray spec...

Geoelectrcal tomographic evaluation of the subsurface conditions of Dutse model and it environs,Dutse, Jigawa State,Nigeria using 2D Electrical Resistivity imaging

The study gives an overview on the utility of two dimensional direct current resistivity methods to explore the subsurface condition of Dutse Model International School and its Environs. Four parallel profiles each of length 200m and separated 120m apart were established. Currents and corresponding voltages were collected for the various investigating points with electrode spacing ranging from 5 to 60m. The collected data was reduced to resistivity values and then arranged in Notepad in a for...

A Profile Of Tapa-Abotoase Community With Its Developmental Potentials And Problems In The Biakoye District Under The Oti Region Of Ghana

The third trimester filled practical programme is an important programme designed by the university for development studies to equip students with practical skills and other standard of living. This first part of the field work is to help identify the problems of rural communities in the northern regions and in this instance TAPA ABOTOASE in the BIAKOYE district, in OTI Region and for that matter Ghana as whole. The third trimester filled practical programme (TTFPP) is a vital component of th...

Expected impacts of active mining on the distribution of heavy metals in soils around Iludun-Oro and its environs, Southwestern Nigeria

This present study is aimed at evaluating the level of environmental degradation and potential ecological risk in soils around an active (tantalum-niobium) mining site of Iludun-Oro, southwestern Nigeria. A total of 18 topsoil samples were randomly collected from different parts of the study area and analysed using the inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrophotometry. The concentrations of Pb, Zn, Fe, Cu, Cr and Ni varied between 0–678, 7–222, 1.64–8.87, 8.8–145, 1.4–81 and 1.6–9...

Comparative study of the common protozoan parasites of 𝘊𝘭𝘢𝘳𝘪𝘢𝘴 𝘨𝘢𝘳𝘪𝘦𝘱𝘪𝘯𝘶𝘴 (African catfish) from wild and cultured environments in Bauchi metropolis

This project work studied and compared the common protozoan parasites of Africa cat fish (Clarias gariepinus) from wild and cultured environment within Bauchi metropolis, a total of 48 samples of C. gariepinus comprising 24 each from both wild and cultured environment were examined for protozoan parasites and only 18 and 13 fishes were infected by protozoa parasites respectively. Ichthyophthirus multifiilis was the most common protozoan parasites found in C. gariepinus from the wild and Trich...

Determination of Minimum Data Set for Vegetable Fields under Biofertilizer-fortified Compost Farming in Southwestern Nigeria

This  study  discovered  that  infiltration  rate,  bulk  density, pH  and  available  phosphorous  were  the  most  sensitive  soil properties  for  use  as  MDS  indicators for vegetable fields at south western of Nigeria. The    study    also    revealed    that    both    the  MDS indicators  and  SQI  value  obtained  were  influenced  by biofertilzer-fortified  compost  application and would  serve  as vital  instrument for evaluating soil fe...

Phytohormone Biosynthesis by Indigenous Rhizobacteria of Vegetable Crops in a Semi-arid Agro-environment

This      study      discovered      indigenous      rhizobacteria (A. brasiliense,  A. chrocoocum,  P. stutzeri  and  P. putida)  from the  rhizosphere  of  vegetable crops in semi-arid agro-zone of Rajasthan desert capable of synthesizing phytohormone. This study   will provide baseline information on the phytohormone biosynthesis    profile    of    t he    isolates    and    the phytohormone produced can be transformed into commercial bio-formulations  f...

Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungi Associated with Rhizosphere of Tomato Grown in Arid and Semi-arid Regions of Indian Desert

This  study  provides  knowledge  on  the  diversity  and drivers  of  AMF  in  the  ecologically  stressed  ecosystem  of  arid and  semi-arid  regions  of  Indian  desert  and  reveals  promising findings  that  would  provide  baseline  information  for  a  better understanding  of  more  important  roles  that  AMF  plays  in enhancing  resource  allocation  and  increasing  tolerance  of tomato plant to the  various  environmental  stresse...
