Knowledge of Book-Keeping as a Predictor of Academic  Performance in Principles of Accounts among Bu

The major purpose of this study is to find out the extent to which previous knowledge of Book-keeping will predict students’ academic performance in Principles of Accounts 1 (BED 111) at the NCE 100 level in College of Education, Ikere Ekiti, Ekiti State, Nigeria. The study employed an ex-post facto research design with a sample of 371 selected from a population of 708. Three research hypotheses were tested at 0.05 level of significant using T-test, Standard deviation, Multiple regression and Analysis of variance. A finding from the study reveals that previous knowledge of Book-keeping significantly contributes to the prediction of academic performance of students in Principles of Accounts 1 (BED 111) among others. It was concluded that the influence of previous knowledge in teaching/learning process provides the background to framework upon which new learning will be placed. It is recommended that Joint Admission Matriculation Board (JAMB) should properly streamline

A Real-Time VIS for Rail Flaw Detection

Rail inspection is an important task in railway maintenance. The speed and loads of trains have been increasing greatly in recent years, and these factors inevitably raise the risk of producing rail defects. Mainly the discrete surface defects impact the riding quality and safety of a railway system. However, it is a challenge to inspect such defects in a vision system because of illumination inequality and the variation of reflection property of rail surfaces. This project presents a realtime VIS for discrete surface defects of rail heads. VIS comprises the Image Acquisition Subsystem (IAS) and the image analysis subsystem. IAS acquires gray rail images for the surface of a rail head, and the latter processes rail images and detects possible defects. This paper propose the Local Normalization(LN) method to enhance the distinction between defects and background in a rail image, considering illumination inequality and the variation of reflection property of rail surfaces

Salvaging New Lives: Low Birth Weight and NICU  Protocol

Background : A low birth weight baby is a clinical and diagnostic challenge. The neonatologists are faced with numerous neonatal intensive care unit protocols. This study was designed to review the policies of management of neonatal jaundice, sepsis, anemia, hypoglycemia, jaundice and hypoxic encephalopathy in a low birth weight newborn. Methods: Care of newborns in was done in intensive care unit after numerous research papers on low birth weight management were referred.

Cervical lymphadenopathy in a Child – An unusual  presentation of filariasis

Clinical manifestations of lymphatic filariasis depend on the area of lymphatic involvement and the duration of infection. An eight year old child presented with right cervical lymph node. Fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) with 22 Gauge needle from the lymph node revealed multiple coiled larvae of Wuchereria bancrofti in a background of reactive lymphoid cells with eosinophils. Diagnosis of right cervical Bancroftian lymphadenopathy was made. The case was followed by excisional biopsy of the lymph node and hence was confirmed histopathologically. We report this case because cervical lymphadenopathy is a rare presentation of filariasis in children.

The Meaning of Caring From Nurses Working at an  Intensive Coronary Care Unit in Mauritius

Background: One of the major concerns in intensive care units is caring. There was no universally accepted definition of the phenomenon, instead of decades of research in this field. Purpose: The study presented here was designed to explore the meaning of caring, particularly from the nurses working at a renowned intensive coronary care unit (ICCU). Method: Volunteers participated in semi-structured interviews and the interviews were recorded in a tape. The recordings were transcribed verbatim and the analysis was done using Colliazzi reductive framework. Findings: Being a nurse in the ICCU meant being valuable, professional, and confident. However, in some cases they were also frustrated. The theme that emerged from the meaning of caring include accountability, empathy, competency development and holistic service.

Recurrent Acute gastroenteritis with septic shock and  acute kidney injury detected as Addison’s dis

- Introduction: Addison's disease is a rare endocrinal disorder, with several oral and systemic manifestations. A variety of pathological processes may cause Addison's disease. Classically, hyperpigmentation is associated with the disease, and intraoral pigmentation is perceived as the initial sign and develops earlier than the dermatological pigmentation. The symptoms of the disease usually progress slowly and an event of illness or accident can make the condition worse and may lead to a life-threatening crisis. In this case, several oral as well as systemic manifestation of the Addison's disease was encountered. A 45 year old male became acutely unwell and had a background of recurrent admissions in past for AGE like illness requiring pressor support and in between had generalized weakness,nausea,weight loss and fatigue. He had an acute diarrhoeal illness which didn’t respond completely to intravenous fluids and antibiotics. In view of patient having such episodes in pas

Gray Level Based Power Adaptation for Wireless  Transmission of Images

Gray level Slicing is to highlight a specific range of gray values. Power Adaptation methods are presented for gray level slicing approaches. Power Adaptation methods aims in optimization of the resulting bit error rate by gray level slicing without preserving background and gray level slicing with background. This paper gives us an achievable increase in the proposed method rather than the conventional method with a better quality and the bit error rate is also optimized in proposed method rather than the former method with acceptable quality.
