Human immunodeficiency (HIV) and hepatitis B virus (HBV) are both of great concern in Nigeria. This study was conducted to understand the HIV and HBV prevalence among students and staff at the University of Jos (Jos, Nigeria) through a medical outreach program in which free screening was offered to voluntary participants at the university. Serum samples from 180 individuals were assayed for the presence of HBV surface antigen, HIV-1 p24 antigen, and HIV-1/2 antibodies. HIV prevalence was 3.88% and HBV prevalence was 7.22%. In sum, the prevalence of HBV and HIV among young Nigerian adults reflects the need for establishment of clear health policy for this risk group.

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
this study was undertaken for the purpose to determine the concentration of caffeine in eight brands of soft drinks with the use of an Ultraviolet spectroscopy. This told us about the best brand among the different brands containing caffeine. The highest concentration of caffeine was found in Sting 500mL (560.29 µg/mL), so it is strongest CNS (central nervous system) stimulant among all samples and it is harmful for health. The lowest concentration of caffeine was found in 7up 500mL (29.71 µg/mL). So it is a weakest stimulant among all samples and can be sold in market
Optimization the production of extracellular lipase in culture of Bacillus cereus has been investigated. From 10 samples of diesel fuel polluted soil it was found that 3 samples was positive for the presence of B. cereus. Lipase production by B. cereus isolated from diesel fuel polluted soil was investigated and optimized. The enzyme production was increased with increasing time and maximum enzyme activity was obtained after 72 hrs of incubation. Effect of pH and temperature indicated that, the lipase production was maximum at pH 8.0 (60.2 U/ml) and at 35°C (55.25 U/ml). The lipase production was optimized in shake flask experiments. With a selected carbon sources, maltose (65.5 U/mL) and nitrogen source, peptone (66.25 U/mL) was suitable substrates for accelerating lipase production. The present study indicates that the various factors influenced enzyme production by the bacteria, it appears that the nature of the supplements had significantly influenced on the produc
The purpose of this study was to refine Gravitational Insecurity (GI) assessment among Indian Children. GI assessment (original version) was examined with 28 children with GI and matched typically developing children. The results revealed that 9 items (Jumping, height jump, Stand on chair, jumping off chair with eyes closed, forward roll, backward roll, tilt board step, Supine ball-active and supine on ball – passive) were correctly discriminate GI children from typically developing children than the other six items (broad Jump, stick jump, Jump off chair with eyes open, prone on ball, swinging ball, bounced ball catch) . These 9 items were included in revised version of GI assessment. Revised version of GI assessment required 30-40 minutes for administration. It was time consuming to assess Gravitational Insecurity. May benson & Koomar suggested that GI assessment (revised version) has to be refined inorder to avoid time consuming.
Phonics skills are considered to be the predictors of reading disability, which is off late viewed as a language based disorder. The aim of the present study is to compare the phonics skills of high and low academic achievers across Bengali and English. A checklist consisting of three parameters was developed in both the languages to assess phonics skills. A total of 42 normally developing bilingual females who attended standard three to standard five in the age range eight to eleven years participated in the study. The participants were classified as high and low academic achiever based upon school performance. Significant differences were found in all the phonics skills in both the languages except vowel sound skill in Bengali and letter name in English. It is concluded that phonics tasks should be provided importance and during classroom curriculum as it distinguishes between high academic achievers from the low academic achievers.
