“Tip of the Tongue Phenomenon” in Normal and Aphasic Adults: An Exploratory Study
      Anusuya M, Dr.K.C.Shyamala

Abstract: The present study aimed at studying the nature of “Tip-of-the-Tongue phenomenon (TOT) seen ubiquitously in most of the normal individuals in their day-to-day life as well as in disordered population such as individuals with aphasia. The study consisted of 30 normal subjects grouped in 3 age group: young, middle and old respectively and 6 subjects with fluent aphasia. Prediction of tip of the tongue phenomenon in normal subjects was investigated by the use of two basic ways: diary studies to acquire information on naturally occurring TOTs and experimentally induced TOTs which involved word retrieval tasks. Results revealed that TOTs are caused by deficits in the transmission of priming that occurs when the connections between lexical and phonological nodes become weakened due to infrequent use, non-recent use, and aging. Consistent with this theory, TOT targets were infrequent words in the language and often had not been used recently, even though they were highly familiar to the subjects. Results also indicated clear cut superiority on the part of conduction aphasics, as compared to Wernicke’s and anomic aphasic subjects, the results gave some insights about the occurrence of TOT in normal as w

Readiness for Competence Based Learning of Agriculture Education in Secondary Schools in Uasin Gishu County, Kenya

Abstract: The study conducted in Uasin Gishu County focused on competencies and perception towards secondary school agriculture. The objective was to establish the readiness of schools for implementation of competency-based learning. Using descriptive research design, a purposive sample of 358 secondary school students from fourteen schools participated in the study. Questionnaires, interview schedules, and observation checklists were used for data collection. Only 24.1% of the teachers were able to design assessment rubrics for competency-based learning while 75.9% needed further training. Creativity and imagination were acquired by 8% of the learners. Other core competencies were acquired by less than 10 % of the learners. About 35.7% of students acquired students’ leadership skills. Despite the low level of agricultural technology used in schools, the teachers attributed low crop yields to poor weather. There was no relationship between the teaching method and the competencies manifested (P (χ2=2.266, df 8) =0.972 at α 0.05).

Abstract: For over a decade, attempts have been made by African writers and scholars to situate the import of culture in literature as a medium for reorientation and change in Africa. Objectively, this connection is uneasily recognized. Yet, literature and culture offer a viable instrument for socio-cultural change, unity and sustainability in Africa. Bearing this in mind, the paper adopts the comparative literary approach in its identification and exploration of cultural features in the family lives and marriages of two African rural communities, highlighted in the novels - The Stillborn by Zaynab Alkali and Trois Pretendant…Un Mari, translated into English as Three Suitors … A Husband by Mbia Oyono. It is evident that patriarchal customs and practices of polygamy, marriage subjugation, male supremacy, domination of women impel positive cultural relationships in families as well as marriages, especially amongst women. Consequently, education, freedom of speech and expression, positive self affirmation are advocated as avenues for achieving social change and reorientation.

Abstract: This study sought to analyze how the current curriculum develops learners’ knowledge, skills, and attitudes based on teachers’ assessment and teaching experiences and their views on decongesting the curriculum by reducing the number of subjects. It used a self-made survey questionnaire with interview questions to describe how teachers assess curriculum theory and practice grounded on Aristotle’s theory on the categorization of knowledge (Aristotle, 1976) based on their teaching experiences and views on decongesting the curriculum considering Gardner’s Multiple Intelligences Theory. The data gathered were analyzed through quantitative and qualitative methods. It was revealed that the assessment of teacher-respondents was the same as the recommendation of the researcher that the road to improve literacy and numeracy development among Filipino children was to focus on Reading in English and Filipino/Mother Tongue, studying Arithmetic and Right Conduct or Character Education. These subjects were referred to as the 4 R’s – Reading in English, Reading in Filipino/ Mother Tongue, Arithmetic, and Right Conduct.

Abstract: County Governments in Kenya have been consistently accused of poor budget absorption. However, there are no comprehensive studies that have been advanced to assess revenue allocation against absorption rate in County Governments. The implementation of the New Constitution has been said to be amongst the greatest challenges encountered under the new dispensation. Devolution, though holding the key to great development and transformation for the Country, has been labelled the most complex and least understood aspect of the New Constitution of Kenya. Revenue allocation within Counties as a part of the process geared towards this realization needed to be scrutinized and gain insights as to how the functions are funded and the absorption rate of the same funds. The paper was guided by Separation of Powers theory.

Abstract: Green roofs can significantly reduce, and in most cases eliminate, the damage and cost of roof repairs caused by hailstorms. Green roofs act as a buffering layer of substrate and plants, absorbing the destructive impact of hail hitting the surface during a hailstorm. Anticipating severe weather and implementing cost-effective protection strategies, such as green roofs, can result in significant savings for property owners and insurance companies. This study demonstrates and quantifies the advantages associated with the use of green roofs to prevent hail damage and associated cost benefits. Testing and data collection in this study were based on the current recommended testing method, UL 2218 Standard for Impact Resistance of Prepared Roof Covering Materials, testing impact resistance by dropping steel balls onto the roof surfaces from various heights.

Abstract: "The traditional workflow of authentication uses passwords as the security for any kind of account a person uses on the internet. Passwords are the bane of online existence as they are easy to forget, susceptible to getting stolen and a virtual doorway to one’s personal information. Studies have determined that given a choice, most people choose very weak passwords such as birthdays and phone numbers that make them easy to crack. According to Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report, 81% of data breaches are caused due to hacked passwords. This paper proposes a reliable, secure and efficient solution to manage authentication, to enable passwordless authentication by leveraging the power of Decentralised Digital Identity (DDI). The Internet makes it possible to exchange information between peoples, servers, corporates and Business Enterprises and makes security more and more secure."

The present investigation on effect of growth retardants on growth, flowering and bulb yield of Asiatic Lilium was carried out at the Experimental field of faculty of agriculture Sher-e-Kashmir University of Agricultural Sciences and Technology of Kashmir, Wadura campus. The results obtained revealed that growth retardants (paclobutrazol and cycocel) had significant effects on growth, flowering and bulb characteristics of Asiatic lilium. The treatment combination paclobutrazol (60ppm) and cycocel (200ppm) took minimum days to bulb sprouting(17.66 days), produced shortest plant(45.18cm),less number of leaves (35.00),lesser number of days to colour break(48.00 days),minimum number of days to anthesis (52days),maximum number of bulbs plant-1 (3.91) and diameter of bulb (6.33cm) with highest propagation coefficient (3.91) whereas maximum flower diameter (15.27cm),weight of bulb (98.10 g) and maximum scale size (2.03)was obtained under T7 (cycocel@ 200ppm). On the other hand number of daughter bulbs produced bulb-1was observed under T4 i.e., paclobutrazol @ 60ppm. However there were no significant effects of growth retardants on number of flowers plant-1.

Abstract: The use of lubricants that are based on vegetable oils is increasing rapidly due to their biodegradability, low ecotoxicity and excellent tribological properties. Bio based lubricants have lower coefficient of friction, improved wear characteristics, a higher viscosity index, and lower volatility and flashpoints than mineral based oils, Properties of the Bio-based based lubricants could be enhanced by adding additives and diluting with other synthetic oils. However in many cases additives and synthetic fluids are not sufficient. In such occasions chemical modification is a better alternative.
