Physicochemical and Phytochemical Analysis of Honey and Shea Butter Samples and Their Antibacterial Effect on Staphylococcus aureus AND Klebsiella pneumoniae

ABSTRACT This research work was carried out to examine the physicochemical and phytochemical constituents of honey and Shea butter samples respectively and their antibacterial effect on Staphylococcus aureus and Klebsiella pneumoniae. The physicochemical screening of honey showed that the honey samples used have low water activity, low moisture content, low pH value below 4.0 and Ash while the phytochemical analysis of Shea butter revealed the presence of Saponnins, Tannins, Alkaloid...

Geophysical Interpretation of Abakaliki And Bansara Area, Lower Benue Trough Nigeria Using Airborne Gravity Data

              ABSTRACTThe Geophysical Airborne gravity data of Abakaliki and Bansara area of Lower Benue Trough Nigeria was interpreted qualitative and quantitative in order to determine the sedimentary thickness/depth to basement and the possibility of hydrocarbons accumulation in the area and also to determine the density contrast and different rock types or rock bearing minerals present in the area. Source Parameter Imaging (SPI) and Forward and Inverse modeling techniques were empl...

Quality of Life Meets Metropolitan Ambitions

This paper examines how people in Copenhagen interact with and perceive six of the main neighbourhoods in the capital. As a special case, an equivalent analysis is carried out for the popular food market Torvehallerne. The research was conducted by applying statistical analysis and natural language processing to captions from Instagram posts tagged with neighbourhood names. The analysis reveals that the Instagram segment have a positive perception of their ...

Improving Text Classification using Deep Neural Networks and Word Embeddings

Natural Language Processing is a flourishing aspect of Data Science in both academia and industry. This paper examines the technique of sentiment classification on text data using automated Machine learning approaches. It will delve into newly introduced embedding techniques and machine learning model pipelines. The models explored in this paper consist of a simple Naive Bayes classifier, as well as several Deep Neural Models, including a Gated Recurrent...

An Overview of Polymers Used in Paint and Surface Coatings Application

An investigation was carried out to identify the different types of polymers used in paint and surface coatings and variations of the final products upon modifications of the materials used. The process of manufacturing paint and surface coatings involves a great deal of understanding various molecular behavior of paint and surface coatings polymeric matrix. These advance knowledge helps in developing new and advanced modifications of the super polymers. Every desire of a paint and surface co...

Design And Implementation Of Design Implementation Of A Cross Platform Database For Patients Medical Record

ABSTRACTElectronic Health Record systems (EHR) are increasingly being deployed within healthcare institutions to reduce the problems and limitations of the paper-based approach but its deployment has been slow due to high investment and maintenance cost. Cloud Computing has been widely recognized as the next generation’s computing infrastructure and it offers several advantages to its users. In this study, an Enterprise Electronic Cloud-Based Health Record System (E2CHRS) was desi...

Phytochemical and Antimicrobial Properties of African peach (Sacocefalus latifolius)

AbstractThis study includes phytochemical screening, quantification of secondary metabolites, thin-layer chromatography (TLC) and antimicrobial assay of African peach (Sarcocephalus latifolius). The phytochemical analysis revealed the presence of alkaloid, flavonoid and saponin at various quantities with saponin more abundant amongst others like tannin, glycoside and phenols that are present. All the extracts were tested for antimicrobial activity with ethanol extract and water...

Steganography

Steganography is important due to the exponential development and the secret communication of computer users over the internet. Steganography is a data hiding technique, which is used to hide the data within a file to avoid detection. Stenography or covered writing is of hiding private or sensitive information which appears to be unrevealed information. Hiding information or wrapping information in other information like image, audio, video etc.  KEYWORDS:Steganography,Data concealing,Secur...

Heat Activated Persulfate Oxidation of Dye Solutions

ABSTRACTThis study investigates the decolourization of reactive blue 4 textile dye solution by heat activated persulfate. Synthetic textile dyes have been found to be non-biodegradable, toxic and carcinogenic and thus potentially harmful to both the environment and living organisms when improperly discharged to the environment. A lot of attention have been given to Azo dyes which make up approximately 60% of the reactive dyes with limited study conducted on other classes of reactive dyes such...

Isight: An Object Recognition Application For Visually Impaired Individuals

ABSTRACT Assistive technologies to aid the visually impaired have evolved over time from screenreading software, magnification programs and daisy book readers, there are a plethora of devices to aid the visually impaired in their daily activities. Despite the established utility of such devices they face certain limitations that have hindered their widespread adoption, such as cost, stigma attached to using the product in public, and lack of continued support for the product. In this tim...
