Abstract: For decades Human Resource Management has been considered to be a cost centre, an overhead that does not contribute to the revenue growth or the overall strategy of the organization. However, there have been drastic changes in perception in the recent past with the management realizing the importance of Human Resource Management and the role it plays in contributing to the overall strategy of the organization. Today, the senior management of many organizations consider HRM to be a profit centre.

Abstract: Since the beginning of the century, the need for adopting sustainable energy technologies (SET) has been of concern worldwide. This is because renewable energy sources have significant potential to contribute to the economic, social and environmental sustainability. However, despite the practical and convincing technologies on sustainable energy, the adoption rates have been quite low especially in resource constrained nations and communities. The effects have been greatly felt by humanitarian actors, host communities and refugees.

Abstract: The situation that continues to persist with most Africans is that despite the impact of the eurocentric influence, evidence suggests that the inner motivation to their way of life overwhelmingly remains their African culture. Adoption of sustainable energy technologies in Africa will continue to be influenced by cultural practices. Adoption rates are likely to be low especially in resource constrained African communities like those hosting refugees.

Abstract: Market availability is a key feature in a business. It helps in designing the product or service that meets the needs of consumers, and setting competitive, profitable and affordable prices. Adoption of sustainable energy technologies can therefore be best discussed in the lens of supply and demand. One of the bases for unwillingness to adopt sustainable energy is the fear of unreliability in supply. On the demand side, adoption of energy technologies will depend on satisfying what the customers are asking for and not necessarily what the suppliers imagines.

Abstract: Energy subsidy is an essential ingredient in diffusion of new technologies .Subsidy initiatives in sustainable energy technology market in humanitarian settings aim to lower the market price and spread the duration of payments hence creating an incentive to consume more of a good or service. Adoption of sustainable energy technologies can thus be discussed in the light of subsidy initiatives structure. Some of the twin reasons for low adoption of SET in the camps is high upfront cost that inhibits access and installment payment that can foster adoption.

Abstract: Researchers working on nCOV-2019 identified a unique protein, the Spike protein, on the surface of the coronavirus, which helped in understanding the method of transmission of the virus. Novel coronavirus uses this spike protein to infect a human cell by binding to the membrane. Detection of antibodies to SARS-COV-2 can help in diagnosis of disease, and also has implications in developing and monitoring patient therapeutics as well as in vaccine and therapy research. As many cases worldwide are asymptomatic (and particularly in India), detection of antibodies in serum and plasma can also identify infection in a patient

Abstract: Background Most viruses produce double-stranded RNA (dsRNA) during their replication. This byproduct can be detected with the anti-dsRNA immunofluorescence (IF) method. A reference standard for the diagnosis of viral respiratory tract infection is usually a molecular technique, including multiplex polymerase chain reaction (PCR), of which specific primers/probes for viruses must have been provided. However, not all viruses are included in the panel of multiplex PCR, so there is still an urgent need for a universal viral detection technique, which anti-dsRNA IF might fulfill.

Abstract: Functional properties of rice bran protein concentrates prepared at different pH of extraction and precipitation were measured. Their nitrogen solubility was measured over the pH range 2 – 10 and in solutions of different ionic strength. Above pH 5.0 the nitrogen solubility increased with pH. By increasing ionic strength, nitrogen solubility decreased in the dispersion medium of pH 9.0, but increased in the dispersion medium of pH 4.5. Bulk density, water binding capacity and oil binding capacity varied slightly among the rice bran protein samples and were lower than those of soy protein isolate. Emulsification activities of the rice bran protein samples increased with increasing nitrogen content. Emulsions of soy protein isolate were more stable than those of rice bran protein samples.

Abstract: Delusional Zoopathy is a disorder of perception alongside a delusion. Patients believe that there is an animal inside their body that they can feel moving inside. Delusional infestation, delusional parasitosis and Ekbom’s syndrome are the other names by which it is known. While existing literature reports the condition as a monosymptomatic disorder affecting mainly the skin or the intestines and involving mostly worms or smaller parasites. While both ICD-10 and DSM-5 categorize it under delusional disorders, delusional Zoopathy is yet to be categorized. Here we describe a rare case of delusional Zoopathy occurring secondary to schizophrenia.

Abstract: In language testing and assessment, predictive validity of a test is probably considered as one of the most commonly discussed types of test validity because it is primarily dealt with the question of how accurate a test is as a predictor of academic performance. Therefore, this study examines the predictive validity of the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) as it determines the academic success of students, measured by cumulative grade point average (CGPA). The results indicate that IELTS scores seem not to be satisfactory predictors of academic achievement. It showed that IELTS Reading test score is a better fit for students’ academic success. The study also addresses some recommendations of further language test use.

Abstract: To transmit torque from rotating power source to another device gears or gear trains are used. There are different types of gears such as spur gear, helical gear, double helical gear, bevel gear, crown gear, hypoid gear, worm gear, rack and pinion, epicyclical gear, etc.[4]Designing of gear is such a vast and critical process that whole research coverage in such work is very difficult. To provide speed and torque conversion to output shaft from rotating source, the gearbox is used. Multispeed gearboxes are used in the applications where frequent changes in speed or torque at the output shaft are required. The transmission of motion and power from the input source to output is possible due to the meshing of teeth of the gears.

Abstract: Juveniles commit a broad range of offences from smoking to murder. Several factors have been empirically established as motivations of youth to a lifestyle of delinquency. Scholars have connected some specific misbehaviors with the home, neighborhood, schools among others and by exploration, these agencies and their agents constitute the bystanders and enablers of deviant behaviors. Against this background, this research attempts to determine their culpability regarding juvenile delinquency. Relying on three theories, the research adopted a qualitative approach to explore the role of bystanders and enablers in juvenile delinquency. Results revealed that majority of the bystanders and enablers are equally as guilty as the juvenile delinquents because they also contribute to the rise in juvenile delinquency either overtly or tacitly, consciously or unconsciously, directly or indirectly, knowingly or unknowingly. Therefore, the study recommends provision of equal opportunities, social infrastructures, adequate parental guidance, strict supervision and monitoring of children, among others.

Abstract: The focus of the project was to design a cutter blade for shredding machine such that it would be economical and effective in manufacturing also same time maintaining its efficiency. For serving this purpose we made some alteration in basic design for 6 teeth cutter blade with square shaped hole. The 6 teeth cutter blade is usually preferred to have a cutter blade angle in the range of 10°-20° for better efficiency. To achieve this arithmetically progressive angles, the cutter blades (with square shaped hole) are needed to be manufactured in different variants.

Abstract: This study investigated lecturers’ perception of corrupt practices in Universities in Cross River State, Nigeria. Four hypotheses were formulated and survey design adopted for the study. The population of the study was 2,286 lecturers from the two Universities while 230 of them were sampled using stratified random sampling technique. A researcher’s constructed instrument called Lecturers’ Perception of Corrupt Practices Questionnaire (LPCPQ) was used for data collection. Data obtained were subjected to statistical techniques with population t-test of single mean and independent t-test statistical techniques. Findings revealed that lecturers’ perception of corrupt practices in universities is significantly low. The recommendation among others is that University Management should put measures in place to promote awareness on the eradication of corrupt practices.
