This research work was carried out to investigate the proximate and mineral composition of some traditional vegetables in Akwa Ibom State, Nigeria. These vegetables include: Talinum triangulare, Hensia crinita, Cucurbita maxima and Lasianthera africana. The vegetables were washed in potable water to remove unwanted matters and were analyzed for proximate and mineral content. All analyses were carried out in three replicates and the mean data were presented on tables using the spread sheet Microsoft Excel. Talinum triangulare had the highest protein content (56.72%) and moisture content (80.11%) but had the lowest content of ash (6.31%), crude fibre (2.96%) and carbohydrate (6.91%). Ash and crude fibre were present in low quantities in Talinum triangulare, Hensia crinita, and Lasianthera africana, except Cucurbita maxima which had the highest composition of ash (14.06%) and crude fibre (9.37%). Mineral composition (Potassium (K), Calcium (Ca), Magnesium (Mg) and
Purpose: To determine the clinical relevance of determining the semen pH during semen analysis as per WHO (World Health Organisation) standard criteria among the infertile couple attending a tertiary ART (Assisted Reproductive Technology) Centre in South India. Methods: Regular Semen analysis as per WHO standards (2010) Results: The Semen pH value showed no major correlation with other Semen parameters and also varied greatly from the given WHO standard. Conclusion: The semen pH determined during semen analysis is found to have not much relevance for clinical practice. The clinical relevance of semen pH for Azoospermia patient needs to be revised.
This paper assesses the net welfare associated with the adoption of Bench Terraces (BT), Contour Bunds (CB), and Napier Grass Strips (NGS) in the Saba Saba sub-catchment of the Upper Tana catchment in Kenya. An agro-economic survey and informal interviews were conducted in the Saba Saba sub-catchment to elicit farm level quantitative data for the Cost Benefit Analysis (CBA). Financial functions in excel were used to analyze the on-site costs and benefits of adopting the identified SWC technologies on farms with crops such as maize, coffee, and tea. In this research CBA was used as a decision tool after the computation of all cost and benefits were valued in local currency to obtain the Net Present Value (NPV) or net welfare. The results show that investment in SWC measures may not be a feasible short-term option from farmers’ perspective. There is, therefore, a strong case for intervention, especially in the initial years where SWC adoption yields negative returns.

The present study analyses the combined, individual, and incremental value relevance of accounting information produced by firms listed on the S&P BSE-500 for FY-2006 to FY-2010, and changes therein over a period of time. Results provide sufficient evidence that accounting information is value relevant for BSE-listed firms. The combined value relevance of accounting information represented by earnings per share and book value per share has declined while there have been insignificant changes in the incremental value relevance of accounting information.
