Abstract Large bone flap decompressive craniectomies have a varied application in modern day neurosurgery. They may be used to combat malignant cerebral edema secondary to trauma, hypoxia or toxic encephalopathies. After the edema subsides, the process of replacing the removed bone flap or bridging the defect of the calvarium with synthetic compounds has assumed great significance, especially over the last decade where cosmesis and quality of life have assumed great importance.
 click here
 Apart from just fixing the bone flap back onto the calvarial defect once the edema has subsided, a variety of synthetic materials have been created to optimize the fit, stability and cosmesis of the procedure.A major concern of cranioplasty is post-operative infection. The incidence of which is rising to almost 30% of all cases as reported by. The propensity of the bone flap to get infected is greater due to the devitalized nature of the dead bone fragment used for mechanical closure. Foreign materials such as bone cement, metal meshes or acrylic are also susceptible to carry infection if improperly handled or sterilized. These infections can lead to failure of the procedure and eventual loss of the bone flap to life threatening infections and meningitis. Hence, proper asepsis is the key to ensure a proper and favorable result. We present our experience of 3 years of cranioplasty done at a tertiary care center.

Abstract : The first Ecological sanitation (EcoSan) pilot project was conducted in a rural village called ‘Ait Daoud Ou Moussa’ in Morocco (December 2009). The main Ecosan structures installed in this village are Urine-Diversion Dehydration Toilets (UDDT), Horizontal Constructed Wetlands (HCW) and Biogas toilets. The investigations were carried out in-situ to evaluate the impacts of EcoSan technologies use in this village.  Indeed, qualitative and quantitative data were collected through field observation, an opinion poll survey, a group discussion and an interview with stakeholders in the field of sanitation. Around 15 % of the population of the village was investigated. click here
 Results showed that after installing this project: over  95%  of  beneficiaries thought  that  their  consciousness  on environmental  condition, their  health  and  hygiene  situation  have  been  improved, because, it provides shelter to hide their privacy and safety in cold weather and during the night. In addition, they revealed that they have noticed the reduction of some foul odors, flies that once polluted their living environment and making it unhealthy and unsuitable. These new technologies can be used as an alternative for solving global sanitation problems in rural areas of low-income countries such as Morocco.KEYWORDS: Rural areas, EcoSan project, evaluation, impact, Morocco.

Abstract: This paper focused on Globalization and Environmental Sustainability: Effects on Strategic Management. The researchers used the descriptive survey approach to gather data for the study. The population of the study comprises of 250 middle and senior members of staff drawn from ten manufacturing and service providing firms in Aba, Abia state.  click here
 The researchers however using convenience sampling technique selected 103 employees out of the population of study. A four point likert scale questionnaire that covered the different areas of globalization and environmental sustainability impact on strategic management was used to elicit response from the respondents. The data gathered were then ranked as follows: SA= 4, A = 3, D = 2, SD = 1. The researchers concluded that cultural mix is becoming an imperative aspect of internationalization strategy formulation and implementation, hence; organizations are largely influenced by their cultural orientation and that globalization and environmental sustainability impacts on the competitiveness of firms significantly. The researchers recommend that global view must be taken into consideration when developing strategies among Nigerian firms in order to ensure that their strategies are holistic and that global environmental sensitivity training should be made a compulsory part of workforce orientation and future training. This will equip top executives with the basic skills to effectively monitor and deal with changes arising from global trends.KEYWORDS: Globalization, strategic management, sustainability.

Abstract : This paper is on agricultural development management: calling on youths to return to the farm with Orumba North L.G.A as the case study. The study adopted a survey approach and a five point likert scale was used to elicit response from 80 respondents that were selected using purposive sampling method.   click here
 Data gathered was analyzed using simple percentage while hypotheses were tested with the non-parametric chi-square test using the 20.0 version of statistical package for social sciences (SPSS). Findings from the study revealed that the contribution of agriculture to the aggregate gross domestic product (GDP) of Nigeria is still at its lowest and though there is a recent call to lure the youths back to farm, failure to provide a friendly business atmosphere for agribusinesses to thrive through functional and supportive policies may have dissuaded the youths from getting involved into agriculture. The researcher therefore concludes that public policy makers in the agriculture sector should develop and implement policies that enhance agribusiness in order to promote youth’s participation. It was recommended that to attract youths back to farm, government should provide economic to youth farmers, provide trade policies such as  making  available  high  breed  seedlings, bumper harvest purchase plan to forestall spoilage and put in place social policies that promotes the perception and image of agriculture.KEYWORDS : Agric Development, Agropreneurship, Entrepreneurship, Youths.

Abstract: This paper investigated the effect Corporate Governance has on the Performance of Aluminum Manufacturing Companies in South-South, Nigeria. The study used survey approach and covered a population of 305 management staff of 25 selected Aluminium manufacturing firms from the six states of south-south region of Nigeria. click here
 Judgmental sampling technique was used to select 221 members of staff, however, only 198 copies of the survey tool was accurately filled and returned. The data used in this study was generated from both primary and secondary sources but a questionnaire titled corporate governance and the performance of manufacturing companies (CG&PoMC) was the major instrument for data collection. The statistical tool used for data analysis was the one way ANOVA test using the 23.0 version of the SPSS. The study concludes that the effects of corporate governance on the performance of Aluminium manufacturing firm are very manifest, hence; should be given adequate consideration. The result may have also revealed the reason while most medium scale manufacturing firms in Nigeria do not emphasize the composition and institutionalization of corporate boards in their firms as they may have considered it of low consequence viz-a-viz overall corporate performance. It was recommended that; the cost of maintaining corporate governance structures in the organizations should be controlled in order to ensure that it does not negate the cost efficiency goals of the organization, there is need to give orientation on the principles of corporate governance to the owners, employers and employees of medium scale manufacturing firms. This will help reduce resentment to corporate governance and promote stakeholders’ satisfaction. and that to ensure that corporate governance contributes maximally to market competitiveness, workers especially the marketing force should be trained in order to enable them effectively incorporate its tenets when developing marketing strategies.KEYWORDS: Corporate financial policy, Management ownership, Corporate board, Organizational performance

Abstract: Aflatoxins are highly toxic, mutagenic, teratogenic and carcinogenic kind of mycotoxin. Consumption of aflatoxin contaminated commodities poses serious hazard to the health of human and animals. This study aimed to determine the Aflatoxin level and storage fungi quality of export commodities of sesame, chickpeas and faba beans from Gondar town. click here
 The post harvest grain samples were collected randomly from different cleaning warehouses and 60 samples were taken for analysis. By taking 25gm composite sample from each collected samples followed by washing and surface sterilization serial dilution were done and the dilution were poured on PDA plates for isolation and identification of storage fungi. The prevalence of fungi were high in chickpeas and faba beans (60%) followed by sesame. Aspergillus niger (30%, 35% and 40%) and Aspergillus fumigatus (25%, 40% and 45%) were the most frequently isolates followed by Aspergillus flavus (15%, 35% and 25%) from sesame chickpea and faba bean samples.  Aflatoxin B1 was detected in 11 samples representing 10.33% and aflatoxin B2 was detected in 1 sample. The highest incidence of aflatoxin contamination occurred in Chickpea (25%) followed by sesame and faba bean (15% each) while no aflatoxin G1 and G2 contamination was detected in all samples. Therefore, low level of storage fungi contamination and AFs occurs frequently in sesame, chickpea and faba bean and can be improved using proper harvesting practices, storage and transportation conditions. The small quantities of AFs warrant performing further investigation, monitoring and routine analysis on regular basis.

Abstract: This study was designed to provide additional information on the roles and levels of some cytokines (interleukin-1β, interleukin-10), C-reactive protein, absolute white blood cells, red blood cell indices, Creatine kinase-MB and Troponin T circulating amongst Nigerian undergraduates’ pre and three hours post recovery stage of moderate exercise. click here
 A total of  77  healthy young undergraduates of Igbinedion University,Okada with an average age of 25.3 ± 4 years and body mass index of 26.7± 1.5(Kg/m2) participated fully in the randomized pre and post experimental study. The subjects took part in an endurance exercise by playing football for fifteen minutes. Hematological parameters were estimated using Sysmex® Automated Hematology Analyzer whereas; IL-1β, IL-10, CRP, TT, and CK-MB were estimated using enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay methods. The levels of IL-1β, IL-10, CRP and Troponin-T were significantly elevated at three hour post exercise stage when compared with pre stage while the levels of TLC, AGC, ALC, MCH, MCV, MCHC and CK-MB shows no significant difference at three hour post exercise when compared with pre exercise stage. It may be concluded that moderate exercise enhances the immunological responses during the three hours post recovery stage of moderate exercise but should be performed with caution to prevent over-activation of IL-1β and CRP which are potent stimulators of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis.

Abstract: Groundwater is precious resource for life growth and development of country. Hence, reliance on the groundwater has increased greatly. This research was conducted in the Uke town, East Wollega zone, western part of Ethiopia.  The study catchment is a watershed area drained by a small stream that joins Anger river from southern direction. The topographic variation in the study catchment ranges from 1287 to about 1337m. click here
The occurrence of Paleozoic sedimentary rocks in the study area and this includes fine grained sandstone which is variably exposed in stream cut and at the bank of Anger river.  Bedding structures that reaches as thick as 25cm are observed on the sandstone, however, thinly bedded with evident lamellae are abundantly exposed at the bank of Anger river. The regional stratigraphic sequence suggests that the Paleozoic sandstone overlays the eroded surface of Precambrian basement rocks. The major hydro geologic unit in the study area is the sandstone rock which covers the major portion of the study area. The sandstone is subjected to fracturing, jointing and local faulting processes.This paper presents the results of geological, hydro-geophysical investigation carried out over the study area  and the objective of  this study  for sitting water well in  water bearing horizon, correct location, depth of aquifer well,  and good  discharge rate. This is possible by a systematic exploration of groundwater using by different scientific tools and also using geological, hydro geological and geophysical methods provides valuable information with respect to distribution, thickness, and depth of groundwater bearing formation zones. In this research, using in geophysical methods, only Vertical Electrical sounding (VES), because it is low cost and relatively high reliable accuracy in   results.  Vertical Electrical Soundings (VES) survey was carried out by using the symmetrical Schlumberger expanding spread.  In this method, the resistivity measurements were taken by progressively increasing the Potential Electrode (MN) along with a relatively large increment of the Current Electrode (AB/2). The Potential Electrode (MN) separation ranges from 1m to 90m whereas; the Current Electrode Separation (AB/2) of 500m was stretched to achieve maximum depth of penetration. Signal Average System Terra meter300C was used for the resistivity measurement of resistivity survey. Like the model for VES1 the model for VES2 also represented 5 geo electric layers.  The first layer has resistivity value of about 27Ωm. and  this represents dry silty alluvial soil with thickness nearly 2meter. The second layer with significantly reduced resistivity value of about 16Ωm can possibly be interpreted to be sandy to silty soil of thickness nearly 10m. This succession gradually grades to fractured sandstone bedrock as it is manifested by relative increment of resistivity value to about 640Ωm. The study area, the major identified potential aquifers are the fractured bedrock, it comprises fractured, jointed and bedded sandstone. Groundwater Potential sites (proposed well sites) are selected based on converging evidences of litho logy and structures.Keywords : Aquifer, Groundwater exploration, Paleozoic sandstone, Resistivity, Vertical electrical sounding.

Abstract: The parent instincts male burying beetles, Nicrophorus spp. are put under doubt when, conspecific females invade on a substratum prepared for oviposition. Though females provide males with padding possibilities of pairing, they put under threat a survival of the male’s brood of “parent”.  click here
To research sexual answer of the parent’s males to females, which invade in their nests, we added the virginal beetles (female) to nest conspecific a steam, which already have initiated to care of descendants. Half of the females (invader) were inseminated by males the parents in trials, with Nicrophorus germanicus (Linnaeus, 1758). In work the author reduces the experimental data obtained during laboratory learning of genesial cycle and the sexual ratioes for the beetles of a genus Nicrophorus Kirby Nicrophorus germanicus. Extra-pair copulations for Coleoptera are poorly investigated. In work this act for N. germanicus for the first time is featured. In work we shall try to give an explanation to the obtained outcomes. Keywords : Extra-Pair Copulations, Nicrophorus germanicus (Linnaeus, 1758), Parental Care, Brood-Care Behavior, Burying Beetles.

ORIGIN OF RICE: Rice botanically called as Oryza Sativa, is associated with wet, humid climate, though it is not a tropical plant. It is probably a descendent of wild grass that was most likely cultivated in the foothills of the far Eastern Himalayas. Another school of thought believes that the rice plant may have originated in southern India,  click here
then spread to the north of the country and then onwards to China. It then arrived in Korea, the Philippines about 2000 BC, and then Japan and Indonesia 1000 BC(Anonymous, 2012).Further, genetic evidence has shown that rice originates from a single domestication 8,200–13,500 years ago (Molina et al., 2011) in the Pearl River valley region of China(Huanget al., 2012).India is also believed to be the origin of the rice (Pallavi 2011).In 327 B. C., it is believed thatfrom Greece, the Arab travelers took rice to Egypt, Morocco and Spain and that is how it travelled all across Europe.The journey of rice around the world has been slow, but once it took root it stayed and became a major agriculture and economic product for the people. In the Indian subcontinent more than a quarter of the cultivated land is given to rice (20011-14). It is a very essential part of the daily meal in the southern and eastern parts of India. In the northern and central parts of the subcontinent, where wheat is frequently eaten, rice holds its own position and is cooked daily as well as on festivals and special occasions.

Abstract: This study aimed to analyze the comparative contribution of the collection of Zakat (Islamic social integrated finance) and Real Gross Domestic Product (RGDP) to the nature of poverty in Indonesia quantitative methodology. The time series data used in this study were collected from BAZNAS 2017 and web site – country. economy.   click here
 The tools in the method used were correlation, regression, causality, Johansen co-integration, normality, autocorrelation LM, and hetereoskedasticy / homoskedasticity. The data were analyzed using the statistical software – Eviews 6.0. The two regression models were constructed to achieve the objective of this study such as model 01 and model 02. In the model one, HCI (Head Count Index: the nature of poverty in Indonesia) was the dependent variable and the collection of Zakat was the independent variable. In the model 02, HCI (Head Count Index: the nature of poverty in Indonesia) was independent variable. There was a significant relationship between HCI and the collection of Zaka in Indonesia. There was an inverse relationship between HCI and the collection of Zakat. One percent of increase in the collection of Zakat decreases in HCI (alleviation in the nature of poverty) by 5.5units in Indonesia whereas there were 2.8 units of decrease in the nature of poverty (HCI) due to the increase in RGDP without significant relationship between both the variables. The policy makers and the government of Indonesia could be made aware of using the findings of this study so as to adopt the appropriate strategic macroeconomic management.Keywords: Head Count Index, Poverty, Read Gross Domestic Product, Zakat, Indonesia.

Abstract: The study was undertaken during April up to June 2016 in Assosa town of Benishangul Gumuze regional state, Ethiopia. The aim of the study was to explore husbandry practices and egg production performance of exotic chicken in the study area.  click here
 A cross-sectional systematic random survey of 34 households was undertaken by using semi-structured and pre tested questionnaire. Information on management practices (breeding, feeds, feeding, watering, housing, sanitation, disease and parasite control etc.), production systems, egg production performances (egg size, , age at first lay, number of eggs laid etc) and  constraints of  exotic  chicken kept in Assosa town  was generated by semi-structured questionnaire. The primary data collected from household survey was processed and analyzed by using statistical package for social science (SPSS) version 20.0 software. Descriptive statistics such as percentage, mean, ranking, standard deviation, and cross tabulation were used to analyze the data quantitatively. Data gathered through key informant interview, focus group discussion and personal observation were analyzed qualitatively to strengthen data obtained from household survey. Methods of triangulation were used to measure the validity of the data. It was found that large numbers (10.26±8.83) of exotic chicken were kept by the respondents in the study area. Due to its small space and lower initial capital requirement sample household’s ranked chicken as the first important animals kept in the study area. The main purposes of keeping exotic chicken in the study area were for generation of income/sale which was followed by consumption.  The most important feed resources of exotic chicken kept in the study area were feed obtained from scavenging, house hold wastes, market left over, and industrial by products and grain supplement. Majority of the households accommodated their exotic chicken in separate house constructed for confinement of the chicken. The higher mortality rate of exotic chicken in the study area was caused by disease, predator and injuries. The most commonly happening and economically important disease in the study area was Newcastle.  The commonly observed predators in the study area were cat, dog and snake.  Egg production performance of exotic chicken in the study area in general was a bit better than local chicken but not at its satisfactory level. Health and feed problems respectively were the first and the second constraint of exotic chicken production in the study area. Therefore area based development interventions could help to increase productivity of exotic chicken and thereby enhance the livelihood of small holders.Keywords: Assosa, town, breed, management, exotic, chicken.
