Abstract: This study was conducted with aim to determine the best C/N ratio for optimum growth performance of Artemia under laboratory conditions. The experiment consisted of four C/N ratios corresponding to 5, 10, 15 and 20 (C-treatments) and a blank treatment used as control; three replicates were involved for each. The C/N ratios were regulated by daily adding molasses into the Artemia culture medium based on TAN concentration, whereas none of molasses was added into the blank treatment. Artemia nauplii (Instar I) were reared in 1.5 L plastic bottle containing 1 L seawater at salinity of 30‰, stocking density was 300 ind./L and maintaining in a room temperature condition with continuously aeration supporting. In the first two days of culturing, Artemia were fed with microalgae Chaetoceros sp., and from the 3rd day onwards to the end of experimental period, Artemia feed (30% of protein and 9% of lipid) was offered as food for the culture. Molasses were added to C-treatments from 3rd day of the culture and since then was daily regulated basing on TAN measurement in the culture medium. After 42 days of culturing, the result showed that the best survival (48 %) and biomass production (4.9 g/L) were obtained in C/N=5 medium, lowest was at control (29.1 %; 3.1 g/L, respectively) and Artemia cultured in C-treatments tend to have better survival as well as biomass production compared to the control. The best growth in length at DAH7 (4.42 mm) and at DAH14 (8.36 mm) was recorded in C/N=10 but there was no significant difference comparing to others.

Abstract: The capital market is an integral part of the development of a nation. Thus, several studies have been carried out to determine the pricing mechanism and efficient market test of capital markets in both advanced and developing countries (Nigeria inclusive). This paper sets to determine the type of efficiency in the Nigerian Capital Market. The study adopted a desk research approach and reviewed several empirical works on the subject to provide theoretical evidence in the Nigerian Capital Market. The findings revealed that the Nigerian Capital Market is efficient in the weak form due to the ability of investors to decode a whole lot of information concerning the entire operations of the organizations listed in the exchange. It also emerged that the share prices in the NSE are not random and thus not efficient in the weak form. The findings are obviously antagonizing. Reason being that, the studies reviewed lacks clear cut demarcation between information, operation, and allocation efficiency in the capital market as one cannot assume the place of the other. We therefore suggest the creation of a real time channel for speedy dissemination of information concerning corporations in the exchange. For the researchers, we strongly suggest that more probing studies should be carried out to ascertain the operational, allocation and informational efficiency of the Nigerian Stock Exchange.

Abstract: In this paper; we have proposed a real-time Face Recognition System for monitoring attendance of students in class rather than relying on methods that are time-consuming. The proposed implementation comprised of using the Viola-Jones algorithm for detecting the human faces from a web camera and then the detected face is resized to the required size; this resized face is further processed by using a simple Local Binary Patterns Histograms algorithm.Once recognition is done, automatically attendance will be updated in a SQLite database with the required attributes. The paper also shares the rationale for preferring OpenCVimplementation over MATLAB. The database is automatically updated by the developed system so that a remote authenticated user can access the attendance.The implementation also ensures that the attendance results are accessing to a remote authenticated user through the application GUI of attendance system.

Abstract: It is always preferred to use uniform high grade ore for production of metallic alloy. But in real life situation, it is not possible to get a homogeneous ore. Chrome ore is one of the precious natural resources having limited availability. The chemical composition of the ore varies horizontally and vertically across the ore body in mines. The ore quality is not uniform in all the faces of the mines. The production requirement being uniform grade of ore, blending of different grades of ore is required at the mines head before using it in the furnaces for smelting. The production requirement is to have a uniform grade metal production to meet the customer specification with minimum or zero deviation.

Abstract: Ceramic reinforced aluminum matrix composite materials are gaining wide acceptance in the engineering application because of their low density, high strength and good structural rigidity. Inclusion of MgO particulates as reinforcement in aluminum LM13 alloy material composite improves its hardness. In the present investigation aluminum LM13/MgO composites were developed by vortex method by varying the weight percentage of MgO particulates from 0wt% to 10wt% in the steps of 2wt%. The casted matrix alloy and its composites have been subjected to solutionizing treatment at a temperature of 530° C for 2 hours, followed by quenching in different media such as air, water and ice. The quenched hardness specimens were subjected to artificial aging at 164° C. Microstructural studies were carried out to understand nature of structure. The hardness test was conducted on both aluminum LM13 alloy and aluminum LM13/MgO particulate composite, before and after heat treatment. Aluminum LM13/MgO particulate composites exhibited significant improvement in hardness when compared with aluminum LM13 alloy.

Abstract: This study was carried out to investigate if a relationship exists between the length of time a subscriber uses a particular mobile network service and the network provider using students of Bolgatanga Polytechnic. The study employed survey research by collecting and processing data from 412 students. Using the chi square independent sample test, it was established that, there is no relationship between the duration of using a particular network service by a student and the network provider. The study also discovered that, subscribers are generally not willing to change their numbers and therefore mobile network providers will have a difficult task to win subscribers of rival network operators. On the basis of this research findings, we recommend that, network operators should endeavor to identify and target potential new mobile phone users and fashion strategies that can entice them to subscribe to their platforms whilst working to retain their existing customers.

Abstract: The genetic scope of diseases is getting wider every day. With the advancement of knowledge and the ever growing entanglement between different branches of science, the diagnosis of prion-caused diseases is becoming easy. However, the devastating outcome of these diseases such as the eventual death in the case of FFI is not. Rare as it may be, FFI is just as dangerous as any other disease; this is mainly due to its fatal outcome. FFI is an autosomal dominant prion disease; the mutation is in the protein gene (PRNP) D178N/129.According to our knowledge, no cases have been reported in Sudan. This may be explained by the misdiagnosis as the symptoms are shared by many neurological diseases.

Abstract: Now a day all over the world, there has been a rapid increase in vehicle numbers. There are approximately 1 million licensed vehicles in the last year. Due to that traffic problems has increased in the last few years and the present traffic light controllers have limitations because it uses the fixed hardware. They do not have the flexibility of modification on real time basis. The time intervals of green, orange and red signals are fixed therefore the waiting time is more. To make this traffic light controlling more efficient we emerge new technique called as Intelligent Traffic Control System. This uses sensors along with embedded technology .The timings of the red and green lights will be smartly decided based on the traffic on roads. As compared to previous fixed mode traffic light controller this new system is more efficient and flexible. It also has facility to pass the emergency vehicles such as ambulance, fire brigade etc. and also detect and track the stolen vehicles. The design also has scope for further expansion.
