Abstract: Utilizing previously executed queries contributes in speeding up the performance of database in responding to future queries as it can reduce the number of database queries to be processed and sent back to the user. This technique avoids the re-evaluation and validation of the query being sent to the database. On the testing of the developed algorithm, shows that a one-time access of a certain query to the database was able to reused, respond and served the requirements of seven (7) different requested queries. The number could be higher if the number of fields in a query will be increased. In a scenario where the same information are to be accessed by a substantial number of users, a single access can be possibly cater the needs of the entire users which substantially reduced the amount of request being sent to the database. The process shifted some of the workloads to the application program that is usually processed by the database was achieved in the study which gives partial autonomy to the application program in terms of responding to users’ requests in the form of queries. The designed algorithm was able to fetched and reuse previously executed query to respond to future queries executed by the user which applies the principle of prefetching operation. Hence, database transparency is improved.

Abstract: Microbial diversity of pristine habitats is studied owing to two main reasons: contributing to the taxonomic literature and exploration of microbes for their potential to produce novel industrially important biomolecules. These biomolecules generally have better potential to survive under harsher conditions like pH, temperature and salt concentration. Traditionally, diversity analysis was based on cultivation dependent methods and hence was biased towards the labweeds or culturable microbes. Chances of accounting for the complete biodiversity were comparatively lower. With the advances in cultivation independent methods, a vast majority of yet uncultured bacteria and archaea have been detected. Mud volcanoes are points of release of pressure from deep layers of earth. They generally coincide with the tectonic plate boundaries. Heat that is generated due to movement of tectonic plates is released by these vents. Microorganisms from various depths of earth might get mobilized along with the flowing mud. Being an unexplored habitat with no chances of human intervention, such habitats may offer a unique source of unexplored microbes.

Abstract: Roads construction projects require large quantities of suitable soils as a filling material. However, in urban areas, when roads are constructed, suitable filling soils have to be hired with enormous costs. Thus main objective of this research was to stabilize weak subgrade soils mixing with fly ash and rice husk ash. Weak sub-grade soil was obtained from Mahokanda construction site in Matara, Sri Lanka. Fly ash and rice husk ash were obtained from Lakvijaya power plant in Puttalam and rice mills in study area, respectively. Forty-eight weak subgrade soil samples were mixed with stabilizers (fly ash and rice husk ash) in different ratio and then 16 specimens were cured for 7 days while other 32 (2X16) samples were cured for 14 and 28 days, respectively. In order to find out maximum strength of each soil sample, different soil tests viz Atterberg Limits, Proctor Compaction, Swell Index (SI) and California Bearing Ratio (CBR) were carried out. Results revealed that maximum CBR value (36.01%) was obtained, when 70% of soil blends with 20% of fly ash and 10% of rice husk ash at 28 days curing period. Reason for the increment of CBR may be due to formation of cementitious compound in the mixture is due to chemical reactions of SiO2 in stabilizers and CaOH present in soils. Based on results, policy implications are discussed in relation to need of stabilizers in road construction projects in order to improve stabilizing weak subgrades while decreasing project cost and utilizing waste materials.

Abstract: The use of cloud computing becomes more mature for large-scale system. To optimally utilize cloud computing resource, task scheduling algorithm needed. Task scheduling algorithm approach try to minimize completion time and optimally utilize cloud computing resource. The biggest challenge of task scheduling algorithm not only how to distribute tasks to workers fairly, but also distribute task to the right worker at the right time. On the real world, the tasks may have different resource usage. There exists task with high computational usage and a task with high memory usage. The different type of task may affect performance of task scheduling algorithm. Grouping or classification of task may increase scheduling performance [1]. In this paper, task scheduling algorithm based on task profiling is introduced. The task profiling algorithm profiles the task based on its resource need, then classify it to HIGH_CPU for high computing task, HIGH_MEMORY for high memory task or LIGHT for task which not consume much resource. Using profiled tasks, proposed system is able to choose worker more precisely. Result shown, the proposed task profiling algorithm gives better completion time compared to traditional scheduling algorithm.

Abstract: Bivalve is one of the most nutritionally balanced seafood but is highly correlated with heavy metal toxicity and ultimately causing public health impacts. Several biological and geochemical factors are influencing the uptake and bioaccumulation of heavy metals in bivalves which leads to destroy aquatic ecosystem and becoming risk of food consumption. Cadmium, lead, copper, zinc and mercury are widely reported as trace metals bioaccumulation in bivalves due to industrial wastages and domestic discharges from urbanized areas. Though, a number of studies have performed to identify the presence of heavy metals in different bivalve species, limited researches have exclusively focused on relationship between nutritional composition and available heavy metals in different bivalve species with regards to safe human consumption.

Abstract: To cope with extinction crisis, museums have a crucial role to play in preserving the life of every possible individual. Museum collections provide essential verifiable evidence of species occurrence over time and space and thus permit rigorous taxonomic, biological and ecological investigations. Two of the basic tasks required for census are gathering data on presence and abundance. By placing stickers on the wing of insect with identification information, migration patterns of insect including how far and where they fly is studied. Using mapping and visualization tools, endangered species and their vital habitats are protected. A new computer technology i.e. remote monitoring of wildlife sounds is used to listen multiple bird sounds. Thus, sound changes due to habitat loss or climate change is significant in the present study.

Abstract: Nigeria is presently overheated with calls for secession and restructuring. This is consequent upon perceived socio-political and economic imbalance, which has bifurcated the polity into the classes of agitators against and beneficiaries of the operative unjust politico-economic system. While those at the receiving end of the imbalance and disequity clamour for re-organization or total renegotiation of the country’s unity, the beneficiaries of the present unjust arrangement utilize the mass media to spread their slogans, propaganda and rhetoric. This is done in order to hide the reality of imbalance. This study therefore argues for a demystification of three identified supportive rhetoric operational in Nigeria. It recommends the reawakening and/or raising of critical consciousness among the citizens as a first step towards a praxis of reflection and action, which is hoped to stall this oppressive and manipulative system. The researcher employs the expository and analytical methods of inquiry and further suggests that the unveiling of these rhetoric will encourage transparency and mutual trust, which are pre-requisites for national integration and cohesion

Abstract: Malaria is a major cause of morbidity and mortality amongst infants and children less than 5 years of age, and current research suggest that cerebral malaria-a manifestation of severe malaria is associated with long-term neurodevelopmental sequelae in some survivors. The long term neurocognitive complications of cerebral malaria is currently under reported, with little or no established policy platforms to follow up survivors who suffer from its debilitating consequences. The resultant effect of this unmet public health need, is an increased odds of victims growing up with disabling neurocognitive manifestations, which may lead to future economic and societal burdens a region of the world already plunged by poverty and deprivation. In this paper, we present recommendations that could mitigate the long term neurocognitive decline reported in some CM survivors. We advocate the use of preventive strategies of disease- primordial, primary, secondary and tertiary preventions to address this unmet public health need.

Abstract: The Construction industry is the most risky of all industries in terms of health and safety hazards. Construction workers on site should have the knowledge of health and safety and apply the knowledge while working on the site. The fact that a construction task or work environment is considered risky and hazardous does not mean that its susceptibility to accident and is not controllable; this largely depends on “Work station” which is humanly controllable. Safety records in most advanced countries have proven this to be true (Samuel, 2014). Death tolls, permanent disability, partial disability and some other severe environmental threats are on the increase due to collapse of buildings and major operational accidents.

Abstract: Malaria is a parasitic disease caused by plasmodium parasite. This study was conducted to compare malaria vector density and malaria infection in Yola South Local government area of Adamawa State, Nigeria. The result of this study revealed that there was positive correlation between malaria vector density and malaria infection based on sites of location (R=0.007) and based on month (R=0.009). Malaria vector density was observed lowest in Upper Benue Quarters (9.52%) and in the same way the infection was observed lowest (6.72%) in the same site. Relationship based on month revealed that malaria vector density was observed highest in the month of August (40.48%) and in the same way malaria infection was observed highest (33.20%) in the same month. Also, malaria vector density was observed lowest in the month of September (20.83%) and in the same way the infection was observed lowest (19.70%) in the same month. The result of this study revealed that most of the malaria vectors sampled were either blood fed (28.57%); gravid (25.59%) or half gravid (27.38%).This implies high contact between the malaria vectors and human or other animal host. Control of malaria vectors is necessary to reduce the rate of infection.

Realizing the important of this issue, it is necessary to investigate the effect of head department’s servant leadership, as one of the essential factors, on students’ commitment. This quantitative study used descriptive and simple regression analysis research design, wherein 212 second semester university students were selected as the respondents of the study through convenience sampling method. A two-part questionnaire, based on the theories of Servant Leadership and Organizational Commitment, was used in gathering data. As an overall, the results revealed that the extent of servant leadership practiced by the head department was ‘high’ (M = 4.09), and the students’ commitment (Mean = 4.14) was ‘high’. This study proved that head department’s servant leadership (r=.831, p=.00 < 0.05) significantly affected students’ commitment. It means that students’ high commitment is caused by head department’s major effort in fulfilling students’ hope and expectation through his servant leadership. Therefore, it is recommended that head department should practice servant leadership in order to foster the sense of commitment of the students for the benefit of the students themselves, and the institution as well.

Abstract: Using the 15N stable isotope technique, nitrogen (N) assimilation of Artemia was determined in feeding regimes where the two yeast strains wild-type (WT) and its mutant mnn9 were gradually replaced by HT3 or HT6, or where the bacterial strains were gradually replaced by each yeast strain. A trypsin assay was performed on Artemia fed the various replacement feeding regimes, in order to detect the effect of the presence of bacteria or of the yeasts on the protein digestive response in Artemia. HT6 fed Artemia showed a higher N assimilation than when using HT3, suggesting a better food value of HT6 for Artemia.
