Every 1st of December the United Nations joined by various bodies in the world commemorates World AIDS Day across the globe to raise awareness on the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) and Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS). The day is also set aside to mourn those who have died of the disease since 1988. It is also meant to show support for people living with HIV/AIDS. Today, it has become an obligation for Governments and health officials, non-governmental organizations and individuals around the world to observe the day, often with education on AIDS prevention and control. It is worthy of note that the World AIDS Day is one of the eight official global public healthcampaigns marked by the World Health Organization (WHO).The theme for the year 2016 is “Accelerating Momentum in HIV Prevention.”

As a way of joining the rest of the world to make the day memorable in the annals of history, on Thursday, 1st December, 2016 Landmark University through her “Word Casters” platform, a student group that uses inspirational quotes, words, poems, drama, and rhymes to inform and motivate all and sundry, most especially the ‘amazing Landmark University’ community presented a piece at the Chapel service to further sensitize the University community on issues pertaining to HIV/AIDS.

The poem below as presented by the members of the Word Casters shows the need for all to be aware of the HIV/AIDS epidemic and to stand up against the plague that is threatening human existence.  It also calls for an end to the blame game in our society about the menace and urged all to take full responsibility towards seeking an end to the disease.

THE POEM

Has the Doctor ever told you that you have AIDS?

Have you ever gone for a checkup                                                                              have you ever been tested?

Do you know your status                                                                        

Do you know where you stand                                                                                  

Isn’t it ironic that AIDS is one of the few things in which being positive is bad and negative is good.

Let me be the bad one here and advise “Stay Negative”.

Shall we blame someone who says his mother murdered him from start with this terrible disease?

Or is it his fault, he was negligent?

Has the local nurse, using the same needle or blade

Shall we also blame the youth,

who don’t even know the meaning

of safe sex or abstinence

Why do we find it easier pointing fingers

rather than giving out handshakes and hugs?

For how long shall we continue to aid AIDS in killing our people?

So on this 1st day of December 2016, it’s WORLD’S AIDS DAY

Today, we stand with the 78million people

infected and 3.5million that have died.

Can we stop with the discrimination!

And realize that this criminal in our nations

should be the one we should look away

and not its patients.

Then we can see that until this war ends

let us be smart, vigilant and play safe.

So let’s join the fight lets live and love

Because I know AIDS is not on the Calendar

but trust me, its days are numbered.

Medicinal plants are predominantly found in nature.They are cultivated worldwide on commercial scale. This study aims at assessing the protective potential of leaf extracts of Annonasenegalensis against selected fungal pathogens of sorghum seeds. Before the seeds are used, they are checked for viability and their surface sterilized. In this study, the effective concentration, optimum soaking time, protective potential of the extract and antibacterial effect of the extracts are carried out. During each setup, at the end of the planting period, percentage germination, germination index, germination capacity, germination rate, germination time and seed vigour are calculated. The most effective concentrations of the aqueous, N-hexane, ethanolicextracts of Annonasenegalensis and copper sulphate solution are observed to be 2000 mg/L, 7000 mg/L, 2000 mg/L and 5000 mg/L respectively.The best soaking times of the seeds in the copper sulphate solution, aqueous and N-hexane extracts of Annonasenegalensisare 30 min while for ethanolic extract was 60 min. The infected seeds that are treated with the extracts show high level of germination and seed vigour. The antibacterial potential of the extracts is tested against selected bacterial pathogens. A high level of inhibition is observed in the ethanolic extract. This study reveals the potential of Annonasenegalensisin the enhancement of germination and seedling vigour as well as the protective effect against fungal pathogens. The findings in the study can be exploited to control the growth of storage or spoilage fungi thus reducing the dependence on the synthetic fungicides

Title: Policy Iteration and Rewards to Cassava Farmers in Edo State, Nigeria

Presenter: Dr Henry Inegbedion
Date: Friday, 4th November, 2016.

Venue: Room B23, 2rd floor Wing B, New College Building

Time: 12 - 1:00 pm.

ABSTRACT

The study examined policy iteration and rewards to cassava farmers in Edo State, Nigeria. Specifically, policy iteration, a dynamic programming technique, was used to forecast expected rewards to cassava farmers in Edo State, Nigeria.  Three hundred and sixty (360) cassava farmers were surveyed in three local government areas in Edo South Senatorial District. Their responses formed the basis of the transition probabilities and rewards in the cassava production problem. The results of the study indicate that cassava farmers in Edo South Senatorial District of Edo State can maximize their earnings from cassava by retailing in the local markets in Oredo and Egor Local Government Areas and by making wholesales at IkpobaOkha Local Government Area. Using this policy, they will realize approximately N2360 per Basin and approximately N66080 per plot of 100ft  100ft. This will translate to N287, 844 per acre (4.356 plots of 100ft2). The need for policy makers to consider cassava farming as a medium for job creation and diversification of resource base was suggested among others.

WATER MANAGEMENT FOR SUSTAINABLE AGRICULTURE – THE ROLE OF RAINWATER HARVESTING TECHNOLOGY

Abstract

Seasonal water shortages and dry spells at critical stages of crop development have resulted in adverse effect on crop yields. The shortage of water results from uneven distribution of rains, significant gaps between rain events and field water losses rather than from low seasonal or annual rainfall totals. In some areas, rainfall occurs in concentrated periods followed by prolonged dry spells while in some, occasional intense rainfall generates runoff that can be captured (when in abundance) and used later when it is scarce. The overall result of unpredictable spatial and temporal rainfall patterns indicates a very high risk from meteorological droughts and intra-seasonal dry spellswhose impact on rain-fed agriculture is complete crop-failure, which statistically, for semi-arid lands, occurs about once every 10 years.There are growing scarcity and inter-sectorial competition for water for domestic, agricultural and industrial uses, along with groundwater depletion, population increase and the adverse effect of climate change. The challenge of feeding the increasing world population in the face of these adverse effects of climate change depends to a large extent on improved agricultural water-use within the present land/water-use systems. There is the need to re-evaluate and consider alternative sources of water i.e. rainfall-runoff water and make judicious use especially during the time of scarcity. Intra-seasonal scarcity of water is a major and critical limitation to increasing and improving productivity of traditional rain-fed farming in Nigeria. Therefore, rainwater harvesting is considered crucial to mitigate short-duration droughts and dry spells, and contributes to sustainable agriculture, national development and food security.

About the Presenter

MACROECONOMIC VOLATILITY AND STOCK MARKET BEHAVIOUR: EVIDENCE FROM NIGERIA

Abstract

This paper focuses on macroeconomic volatility and stock market behaviour in Nigeria within the context of endogenous growth model; Hicks IS-LM theory; Arbitrage Pricing theory and the Monetary Policy Channels theory. The relevant literature points to the existence of a functional relationship between stock market behaviour and macroeconomic variables. This relationship can be examined from two literature strands viz: first moment and second moment strands. The is concerned with the relationship between the two at the second moment in that it (the second moment) lays emphasis on how risk or volatility of the macroeconomic variables affects stock market behaviour since it is the volatility of the macroeconomic variables that makes stock market planning difficult. The variables used are Real Gross Domestic Product (RGDP); Money Supply (M2); Interest rate (INT); Inflation rate (INF); Oil price (OIL); Exchange rate (EXC); Net Credit to the Private Sector (NDC)and the All Share Index (ASHI). The Unit root tests show that the order of integration of the variables are not of the same order, this informs the use of Autoregressive Distributed Lag (ARDL) estimation techniques to examine the nature of the relationship among the variables. The study further used the Exponential Generalized Autoregressive Conditional Heteroskedasticity (EGARCH) to examine the impact of macroeconomic variables volatility on stock market in Nigeria. The results from the ARDL models show that a compelling long run relationship exists among the variables when the regressions are normalized in the InASHI, INT, EXC, INF, InNDC and OIL. The relationship between each of the macroeconomic variables and the ASHI is negative in the short run. The ECM result shows that the speed of adjustment from disequilibrium to equilibrium is fast at about 63.3% and is highly significant. The ARDL result is stable as indicated by both the CUSUM and CUSUMQ curves. The EGARCH results show that large innovations irrespective of their signs increase the ASHI volatility. On individual macroeconomic variables volatility as it exerts on stock market, it can be deduced that both the asymmetric impact and size of shocks of the RGDP, INF, M2, INT, EXC and the NDC exerts on the ASHI. In order to develop the stock market, the study recommends that policy makers should pursue strong economic growth, increase money supply, lower the interest rate, strengthen the naira, increase the NDC andincrease inflows from the oil pump price. It is also recommended that market practitioners should pay keen attention to movements in each of these variables and mirror their investment decisions after these movements.
