CHINA LEADS THE WAY IN RENEWABLE RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT

21st Century Science Students, Trending Issues
China has been the source of many innovations, scientific discoveries and inventions. This includes the four great inventions: paper making, the compass, gun powder, printing (both woodblock and movable type). Amongst other inventions of China, is that of the first famous metallurgist, Qiwu Huaiwen who invented the process of using wrought iron and cast iron to make steel. As the world’s largest energy consumer, running mostly on coal, China often struggles to keep pollution levels at bay, but the country is now beginning to do an admirable job of taking responsibility for its vast environmental footprint. Switching on the world’s largest floating solar energy plant, says it all. (more…)

Environmental sanitation situation in primary and secondary institutions in Nigeria

bloggers, Trending Issues
The need for clean water in Nigeria is widely understood but the importance of appropriate sanitation is not yet recognized. In many areas, access to simple toilets facilities seems impossible. In most cases, adequate sanitation remains the responsibility of individual households to provide safe and healthy toilet system. Sanitation covers broad range of environmental problems including hygiene, drainage, solid waste and excreta disposal. This study focuses on excreta disposal. Lack of access to good toilet facilities and poor hygiene conditions results in diarrhoea, which is the 2nd largest cause of childhood mortality in Nigeria. (more…)

My Benue Experience…….From theory to practice…….

21st Century Science Students, Biology, bloggers, Quality Teacher
The University erupted my teaching skills. A teacher is like a candle that burns itself to illuminate others. Just four (4) months in a land that I only knew through the Nigerian map, either on the Google or on the atlas map. I was born, breed, nurtured and grew to my level; up the Eastern part of the Igbo speaking State of Imo. I only knew Ibo culture while other peoples cultures were read on papers. I came to Benue state, the food basket of the nation) as they claimed; the very first time in my life during my service year at Wannune permanent orientation camp Tarka L.G.A. That faithful Wednesday, it wasn’t funny because I arrived Wannune camp at about 10:30pm as a result of traffic and first experience.…

The benefits of entrepreneurial skills to the society can never be overemphasized. The possession of relevant skills would make one an attractive candidate in most field especially in teaching profession. Such skills such as blogging cannot pigeon-hole creativity and resourcefulness which is vital to effective teaching and learning. Blogging for teachers brings about professional development in all ramifications as well as a huge money spinner. Thereby making teachers rich and successful in their career.

Meet the four newest chemical elements: nihonium (Nh), Moscovium (Mc), tennessine (Ts) and oganesson (Og)

Chemistry, Trending Issues
On November 28, 2016 the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) gave their seal of approval to the proposed names for the four elements, which take slots 113, 115, 117 and 118 on the seventh row of the Periodic table. Traditionally in Chemistry, the naming rights go to the discoverers: Scientists at RIKEN in Wako, Japan, named element 113, and Russian-U.S. collaboration named others. The names proposed in June 2016 underwent five months of public comment and review and approved afterwards by IUPAC making them official. Element 113 is “nihonium" (Nh). Its name comes from the Japanese word “Nihon,” meaning “Land of the Rising Sun,” a name for Japan. Element 115 is “moscovium,” (Mc). Its name is dubbed after the Moscow region, home to the Joint Institute for…
