Mickenautsch, S, Rudolph M, Ogunbodede E, Frencken J.  1999.  The impact of the ART approach on the treatment profile in a Mobile Dental System (MDS) in South Africa, 1999/06/01. International dental journal. 49:132-8. Abstract

The changing profile of oral care rendered through the Mobile Dental System (MDS), after the introduction of the Atraumatic Restorative Treatment (ART) approach is described. During the first year of introduction of ART, the percentages of amalgam restorations and tooth extractions decreased significantly (P < 0.0001). This is partly ascribed to a change in choice of treatment by dental operators in favour of ART and also due to an increase in acceptance by patients because of the reduced fear, and the patient-friendly nature of the ART approach. The reduction in amalgam restorations was 16.0 per cent for permanent and 1.4 per cent for primary posterior teeth. Extraction of posterior teeth was reduced by 17.4 per cent in the permanent and 35.7 per cent in the primary dentitions. The restorative component of oral care increased by 33.4 per cent in the permanent and 37.1 per cent in primary posterior teeth. The one-year survival of one-surface ART restorations using Fuji IX and KetacMolar was 93.6 per cent. Full and partial (more than 90 per cent) retention of the sealant part of the ART restoration was obtained in 75 per cent of the cases after one-year. During the one-year period, infection control was made more simple and this facilitated easier maintenance of mobile dental equipment. The introduction of the ART approach reduced extraction, restored more teeth and made oral care in the MDS more preventive, less threatening and thus more patient-friendly.

Mickenautsch, S, Rudolph M, Ogunbodede E, Chikte U.  1999.  Oral health among Liberian refugees in Ghana, 1999/05/01. East African medical journal. 76:206-11. Abstract

To promote community involvement in the provision of oral health services.The project consisted of a four-week training course in oral health for selected refugees, an oral health survey based on WHO guidelines and conducted by the refugees themselves and the provision of oral health care services to the community by the trained refugees.
Liberian refugee camp, Gomoa Buduburam in Ghana.
Liberian refugees of all ages.
Twelve refugees were given short term training in oral health. In the oral health survey, 196 refugees were clinically examined for dental caries, periodontal disease and malocclusion.
DMFT (for dental caries), CPITN (for periodontal disease), and malocclusion scores for selected subjects. Also clinical services rendered.
Oral health survey revealed a mean age (+/- SD) of 25.7 (+/- 9.5) years. Only thirty nine (19.9%) of the subjects were caries-free, and total DMFT was 2.5 +/- 2.2. Based on the CPITN, 107 (54.6%) required oral hygiene instructions (OHI), and 41 (20.9%) required prophylactic scaling with OHI. Forty four (22.5%) of the subjects had normal occlusion and 152 (77.5%) mild to severe malocclusion. Periodontal (75.5%), prosthetic (52.5%) interventions and extractions (34.2%) constituted the bulk of the treatment needs required. Clinical treatment was rendered by the trained refugees to 846 patients over a twelve month period.
Relief programmes for refugees should emphasise a primary health care approach, focusing on prevention, based on appropriate technology, and promoting involvement by the refugee community in the provision of services.

Mirghni, AA, Oyedotun K, Fasakin O, Mahmoud B, Tarimo D, Manyala N.  2020.  High-performance bimetallic Ni-Mn phosphate hybridized with 3-D graphene foam for novel hybrid supercapacitors, 2020/06/22. Abstract

Nickel-manganese phosphate/graphene foam (GF) composite was successfully synthesized through a simple and direct hydrothermal approach, serving as highly efficient electrodes for hybrid device. Ni and Mn are both redox metals owing to their multiple oxidation states however, Ni-based materials possess higher capacity due to its strong faradic mechanism while Mn-based materials offer pseducapacitive nature and GF for its ability to improve the surface area as well as the electrical conductivity of the composite. Consequently, the prepared NiMn(PO4)2/GF composite achieved a maximum specific capacity of 97 mAh g − 1 at 0.5 A g − 1 in a 3-electrode configuration setup compared to 63 mAh g − 1 for the pristine material. Thus, NiMn(PO4)2/GF considered as a positive electrode in a hybrid device with carbon derived from Capsicum (bell pepper) seeds “peppered”-activated carbon (ppAC) as a negative electrode. The hybrid device reported a maximum energy density of 35.42 Wh kg−1 corresponding to a power density of 538 W kg−1 at 0.5 A g − 1. The NiMn(PO4)2/GF//ppAC hybrid device also showed high stability of 97.8% capacity retention over 10,000 cycles at 6 A g − 1, ∼93% float time efficiency after 120 h and could still preserve ∼1.17 V against its initial cell potential of 1.5 V after 60 h of self-discharge. The outstanding performance of NiMn(PO4)2/GF material in a half and full cell makes it a good candidate for supercapacitor application.

This study investigated the awareness and use of Online Public Access Catalogue (OPAC) by students of Obafemi Awolowo University, Nigeria. A questionnaire was distributed to 800 students at various faculties and in different levels of studies in August 2012. Five hundred and twenty copies of the questionnaire was retrieved and used for the study. The study revealed that 68.7 % of the respondents were aware of the OPAC services; students who were aware of the library OPAC and did not use it to access library resources were statistically significant (x2 =82.073; df =2; α = 0.001); 23.8% of the respondents used OPAC independently; only 3.2% of the respondents accessed library resources from their hostels, 0.2% access it from homes. Similarly, majority of the respondents lacked information searching skills while lack of awareness, irregular power supply, network failure and inadequacy of computer terminals designated for the use of OPAC were among the problems identified as factors inhibiting the use of library OPAC. Therefore, the study concludes that majority of the students used manual catalogues to access library resources due to lack of awareness, skills to use OPAC and problems encountered during usage. Hence, students have not been making effective and efficient use of the library OPAC. Therefore, we recommend that the Library should create more awareness and effective education for students at various levels to ensure maximum utilization of library resources.

Mohammed, H.  2020.  Coal Bottom Ash as Partial Replacement of Fine Aggregate in Asphaltic Concrete, 2020/03/01. 2 Abstract

The effect of coal bottom ash (CBA) on the characteristics of asphaltic concrete was investigated with a view to assess its suitability as a partial replacement of fine aggregate. Coal procured from Lafia-Obi coal mines was burnt in a fixed bed combustor until a sand size residual was produced. The properties of the materials used for the study were characterize using standard procedures. The CBA was introduced in the asphalt mix at an increasing rate of 10, 15, 20 and 25% content by weight of the fine aggregate and test samples of asphaltic concrete were prepared. The samples were subjected to Marshall stability test. Results showed that the specific gravity and absorption test for granite dust were 2.45 and 0.25%, respectively, while those of the CBA were 2.86 and 0.58% respectively. The result of stability, flow, bulk density, voids filled in bitumen (VFB), air voids (VA) and voids in mineral aggregate (VMA) of the asphaltic concrete at 0% CBA were 12.02 kN, 3.04 mm, 2.491g/cm3, 66.0%, 4.3%, 12.7% respectively; while the values at 20% CBA content were 16.97 kN, 3.51mm, 2.514g/ cm3 , 71.2%, 3.4%, 11.9% respectively. The result showed that coal bottom ash in asphaltic mix improved its properties.

Mola, GT, Arbab E, Taleatu B, Ahmad I, Maaza M.  2016.  Growth and characterization of V2O5 thin film on conductive electrode, 2016/09/01. Journal of Microscopy. 265(2):214-221. Abstract

Vanadium pentoxide V2O5 thin films were grown at room temperature on ITO coated glass substrates by electrochemical deposition. The resulting films were annealed at 300, 400 and 500°C for 1 h in ambient environment. The effect of heat treatment on the films properties such as surface morphology, crystal structure, optical absorption and photoluminescence were investigated. The x-ray diffraction study showed that the films are well crystallized with temperatures. Strong reflection from plane (400) indicated the film's preferred growth orientation. The V2O5 films are found to be highly transparent across the visible spectrum and the measured photoluminescence quenching suggested the film's potential application in OPV device fabrication.

Forest in Nigeria plays a much wider role in the overall balance of issues affecting the country than those of climate change alone. Nigeria's tropical forest is depleting fast, due largely to uncontrolled human activities. Poverty, urbanization, population growth and insecurity are the major causes of this trend. Tracking carbon flow in these forest life zones will help account for the effect of these activities on the environment. COPATH, an acronym for Total Carbon Flow from Conversion to Agriculture, Pasture, Harvest and OTHER land-uses including construction of dams, roads, forest fires and human settlement, etc., was used for tracking carbon flow in the forest zones. From the five forest life zones, total carbon stored was estimated to be 2.55 TgC. The four activities of agriculture, harvest, pasture and bush burning were pronounced in contributions to land use changes, particularly to forest depletion. In this paper it is shown that carbon emission was highest from harvesting activity in year 2000, principally from clear-cutting activity in the lowland rainforest as against that of 1990 study, which showed agricultural activity as the major anthropogenic activity leading to carbon release into the atmosphere. Further, it is shown that the value of carbon emission is on the increase as compared to the earlier study with 1990 as the base year. During the two periods of study, it was however, observed that the relative contribution of each of the activities that are responsible for deforestation and affects carbon flow pattern in the forest zones and invariably causes carbon emission had not changed. Though a look at the fractional contribution of each of these activities in 2000 as against that of 1990 estimates shows a marked change. The study also concludes that if there is no change in the estimated deforestation rate of 2.23% per annum of the forest formations, lowland rainforest and riparian forests are likely to disappear by 2040.
