Future studies are recommended to extend the empirical research in terms of good governance practices and more specifically at the level of sample and geographical distribution.
Cognitive and affective attributes are the key in any educational endeavor. They seek to give an indication of the extent to which a learner would succeed in a given subject. Given this, the paper examined the cognitive and affective characteristics of History students of the University of Cape Coast, using primary data collected via focus group discussions with a sample of History students selected through random sampling technique. Discussions were transcribed into written text and coded into themes and sub-themes. Commonalities and differences in the key themes have been presented. The study revealed that knowledge traits characterized students' cognitive abilities. The study further found that students have a negative attitude and lack of interest towards History. The results from this study calls for the need to improve the transaction of the History curriculum in the University.

The concept and implication of an employee turnover has been an area of interest among researchers. The phenomenon of Employee turnover can be traced to misalignment of expectations and aspirations of the employees with the organization. In the current study, I sought to understand this phenomenon through a sample of MBA students, who were in full employment, before leaving the organization, in pursuit of an MBA. Results reveal that although areas of job satisfaction and employee engagement were high in the previous organizations, employees left to pursue a brighter career or an aspirational role change.
Diagnosis of extrapulmonary tuberculosis (EPTB) is difficult owing to low number of bacilli in the specimens, lack of adequate sample and non-uniform distribution of bacteria in tissues. The aim of this study was to investigate the utility of acid-fast bacilli (AFB) staining in biopsy specimens with typical granulomatous inflammation in patients with extrapulmonary tuberculosis and some related predictors.This study included 226 tissue biopsies of patients with EPTB showing typical granulomatous inflammation. Ziehl-Neelsen staining was performed for acid fast bacilli on paraffin embedded sections of tissue blocks. The most common site of involvement was pleura followed by vertebral and lymph nodes. Past history of pulmonary tuberculosis was positive in 46% of patients. The overall AFB positivity in specimens was 26.1%. The most positivity was in pleural TB (35.2%) and the least was in bone and joints TB (4.8%).
This paper aims at presenting the prototype for Braill-e-Book, a portable and user-friendly device that converts the large ocean of e-knowledge into the Braille format for the blind to access easily. The Braill-e-Book makes use of USB flash drives that contain several books in text format. It has a speech recognition system using which the user can search for the file name or its author, which when selected will be displayed on a refreshable display. Furthermore, the Braill-e-Book is equipped with the audio notifications to enable the user to navigate through the entire process easily. It is an innovative upgrade to the presently available electronic Braille display devices which are either not portable or have a PC dependency.

This study was conducted at the University of Agriculture Makurdi Research Farm in the sub-humid Southern Guinea Savanna Zone of Nigeria, during the 2010 and 2011 cropping seasons to determine the effects of Bambara groundnuts (Voandzecia Subtonanea) (L) Verde biomass on soil physical and chemical properties. Five treatments (comprising 0, 5, 10, 15 and 20 t ha-1 of bambara groundnut biomass) were laid in a Randomized Complete Block Design (RCBD) and replicated three times. The biomass was incorporated as green manure after 120 days of planting bambara groundnut on the same piece of land. A composite soil sample was taken at planting while samples were taken on treatment basis at 30, 60 and 90 days after treatment application. The samples were analyzed at the NICANSOL laboratory following standard procedures. The results obtained showed that incorporation of bambara groundnut biomass had no significant effects on the particle size distribution of the soil. The green manure produced sig
