This paper examined the adoption of scientific means such as Material Contents Analysis (MCA) in museum studies. It notes that science has revolutionized museum life and experiences with probes determining material constituents of museum specimen, antiquity and heritage. It likened MCA in museum practice to the cataloguing dynamics of human investigation and identification process of Deoxyribonucleic Acid (DNA); the paper observed that the examination of the current trend in museum studies fills the gap created in museum and art historical investigations in Nigeria which further underscores the importance of material contents investigation. It opined that Material Content Analysis of specimens will not only aid museologists and art historians’ inquiry into formal, stylistics, thematic, contextual, iconology and iconography of artistic objects and finds, it will also yield accuracy in findngs. The paper adopted qualitative, descriptive and evaluative approach for data collation and analysis. It concluded by highlighting the rationales and benefits derivable from this recent advances in museum research to the benefits of repositories, private collections and museums.

Antimicrobial resistance has become a global problem and Strategies to improve the current situation necessitate finding new and innovative antimicrobial agents. Forty apparently healthy albino mice of either sex, weighing between 19kg and 27kg, aged 2 to 3 weeks were purchased and the various concentration of the extracts from Moringa oleifera leaves were given orally to the mice, the highest mean PCV was recorded in 800mg (33.0{$\pm$}1.22), White blood cell count 400mg (3,725{$\pm$}923.20), Neutrophil count100mg (24.8{$\pm$}7{$\pm$}.65) and lymphocytes count 400mg (87.5{$\pm$}1.85), ethanol extracts had PCV to be highest in 200mg, White Blood Cell WBC 100mg (14,000{$\pm$}9453.4), neutrophils count 400mg(12.8{$\pm$}2.02) and lymphocytes count 800mg (91.5{$\pm$}2.22), the antimicrobial activity of the extracts on clinical isolates showed that the water extract 800mg/ml had the highest zone of inhibition of 6mm on the Escherichia coli, 19mm against Staphylococcus aureus, 18mm against Proteus mirabilis and 14mm against Escherichia coli, the ethanol extracts 800mg/ml had the highest zone of inhibition of 8mm against Salmonella typhii. 6mm against E.coli and S.aureus and 5mm against P. mirabilis, The phytochemical screening showed that both water and ethanol extracts had Flavonoid, Tannin, Glycoside, Terpenoid and Saponin with the absence of alkaloids in water, while reducing sugar was absent in both with Terpenoid having the highest concentrations in ethanol extracts 12.95mg/g and water extracts10.30mg/g.

Faiyetole, A, Adesina F, Oyebisi T.  2016.  An Analysis of the Costs and Benefits of Actions or Inactions for Africa under Variable Climate Policies, 2016/06/27. Special edition: Environment and Sustainable Development in the 21st Century:pp96-104. Abstract

The four forecasted climate policy scenarios or representative concentration pathways (RCP), informed the findings of the fifth assessment report (AR5) of the intergovernmental panel on climate change (IPCC). Depending on the emissions levels, economic status and population growth, the climate pathways, if adopted, would imply different costs and benefits to different countries or regions. In pertinence, with respect to economic status, the combined gross domestic product (GDP) of the ten highest emitters of Carbon dioxide in Africa, for instance, is currently less than for the seventh global emitter. In this study, stochastic analysis of the mitigative costs for RCP 2.6, 4.5, 6.0 and 8.5 (Wm-2) radiative forcing for CO2 were conducted from 2010 to 2100 for Africa and the Middle East (AME) region. For example, RCP 6.0 posed the highest % of GDP loss in 2030, and thereafter, RCP 2.6 maintained the highest % of GDP loss through the century. It is therefore arguable that AME in general, and Africa in particular, could pursue a hybrid of the four climate pathways in ensuring the associated economic benefits are maximized for the continent.
