SAVING THE DYING PLANET EARTH

Planet  earth  is  being  endangered  by anthropogenic  activities  ranging from industrial  activities  to  seemingly innocous activities  such  as  use  of  herbicides  on  farms.There  are possibilities  that the  resources  of the  earth  may  not be  sufficient   to  sustain the  needs   of  future  generations.There  are  also possibilities  that the  earth may become in conducive for human habitation  due  to  emission of  dangerous  gases  and...

Design and implementation of a point of sales system

ABSTRACT The global community especially the technologically advanced world is striving to attain what has been the global information age. It is an age that is envisaged to go beyond the use of computers as a mere tool for fast information processing, rather they will also become medium for processing and transferring such information from one location to another at equal fast rate. As a result, its appalling that sales in developing country like Nigeria have not been able to benefit much fr...

SOLAR ENERGY: POTENTIAL FOR MITIGATING DEVASTATING EFFECTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE

ABSTRACT Climate change has been identified as one of the greatest challenge by all the nations, government, business and citizens of the globe. The threats of climate change on our green planet ‘Earth’ demands that renewable energy share in the total energy generation and consumption should be substantially increased as a matter of urgency. Nigeria’s energy development programme has been put under severe pressure with the ever-increasing demand supply gap. Due to predominance of fossil...

MICROBIAL ANALYSIS OF TOAST BREAD

ABSTRACT Microbial analysis was carried out on six samples of toasted bread bought from three different kiosks in Unilorin walkway. The microbial population of each sample was determined and related to a variety of physiochemical parameters that could have contributed to their population. These parameters included the pH which varied from 5.37 – 5.54, the moisture content which varied from 10% – 30%. The bacteria counts ranged from 0.3 X 105 – 4.9 X 105 cfu/g while the fungal counts ran...

GLUCAN AND GLUCANASE LEVELS IN IMPROVED SORGHUM VARIETIES DURING MALTING AND THEIR EFFECTS IN BREWING

ABSTRACTLevels of glucan components (TBG: total glucan, WIBG: water  insoluble glucan and WSBG: water soluble glucan) and glucanase in three improved sorghum varieties (SK5912, KSV8 and ICSV400) during malting and their effects in brewing were investigated using standard methods. Variety ICSV400 had the lowest TBG, WIBG and WSBG levels of 0.298 ± 0.054%, 0.196 ± 0.021% and 0.102 ± 0.015% in its raw samples and 0.187 ± 0.007%, 0.144 ± 0.004% and 0.043 ± 0.006% in malt samples, respectiv...

β-GLUCAN AND β-GLUCANASE LEVELS IN IMPROVED SORGHUM VARIETIES DURING MALTING AND THEIR EFFECTS IN BREWING

ABSTRACT Levels of β-glucan components (TBG: total β-glucan, WIBG: water insoluble β-glucan and WSBG: water soluble β-glucan) and β-glucanase in three improved sorghum varieties (SK5912, KSV8 and ICSV400) during malting and their effects in brewing were investigated using standard methods. Variety ICSV400 had the lowest TBG, WIBG and WSBG levels of 0.298 ± 0.054%, 0.196 ± 0.021% and 0.102 ± 0.015% in its raw samples and 0.187 ± 0.007%, 0.144 ± 0.004% and 0.043 ± 0.006% in mal...

Computer and its Architecture

Computer Architecture Computer technology has made incredible progress in the throughly 60 years since the first general-purpose electronic computer was created. Today, less than $500 will purchase a personal computer that has more performance, more main memory, and more disk storage than a computer bought in 1985 for 1 million dollars. This rapid improvement has come both from advances in the technology used to build computers and from innovation in computer design. Although technological i...

AUTOMATION OF LAW FIRM

ABSTRACTThe need for automated method of keeping data is very vital. So many software's has been developed to solve this problem but to no avail. These software has been analyzed and discovered that very many of them are inefficient.
