DIAGNOSIS AND MANAGEMENT OF TYPHOID FEVER IN ROYAL PRIMA HOSPITAL OF MEDAN IN 2019 [PDF]
DESTI NATALIA NABABAN, YUANNA HARTANTYTyphoid fever is an infectious disease caused by negative-gram bacteria, Salmonella typhi. The gold standard study for typhoid fever is blood culture, however blood culture has several limitations including high costs, long time requirement, and sometimes lead to negative result if the patient has taken antibiotics. Widal test is a serological test for diagnostic tests that is relatively inexpensive, fast and easy and it is still widely used in laboratories for the diagnosis of typhoid fever, however diagnosing typhoid fever from widal test alone will lead to less accurate result, due to the large number of false negative and positive results. The purpose of this study was to illustrate antibiotic management in pediatric typhoid fever in Royal Prima Hospital in 2019. This study was an experimental study with the post-test only control group design. The samples were blood drawn from 25 children. Culture was carried out for isolation and identification using Kirby Bower method. Of the 25 patients with typhoid fever, six patient were found to be resistant to ampicillin and erythromicin antibiotics. On the other hand, they were found to be sensitive to ciprofloxacin, amikacin and chloramphenicol.
Keywords: Typhoid Fever, Salmonella typhi, ampicillin, eritromicin.

Business unusual in Africa and problematization of decision-making without adequate information! Is the basic philosophy of management accounting appreciated and embraced by Small and medium enterprises in Botswana? [PDF]
Dr Milton GwakwaAbstractManagement accounting offers a good best opportunity for firms to compete in the market in order to offer best quality products and services at affordable prices to consumers. The Judgmental and convenience sampling methods were applied to come up with the sample size, since the population in different firms was considered heterogeneous, implying that a simple random sample was going to be unrepresentative. The data collected was both quantitative and qualitative. Analysis was done using thematic analysis and Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS), allowing the researcher to present the information in form of tables and figures where desirable. The study concludes that Small and medium enterprises at large have not moderately adopted the use of management accounting practices despite this being at various stages of the firm life cycle. The most prominent practices are costing, information for decision- making for budgeting and aspects of performance evaluation, practiced unconsciously and latently. This study recommends that an integrative and committee system be put in place in the Small and Medium enterprise sector to spear head, promote and advance the adoption and use of modern accounting practices. In the same endeavor, there is need for a comprehensive awareness campaign in using management accounting approaches in decision making for sustainable development of the sector. Further research is proposed from a longitudinal perspective across the whole SMEs sector in Botswana.Key words: Management accounting, costing, budgeting, performance evaluation, Small and medium enterprises, Sector performance
Is money a motivator? Reflections of Francistown metropolitan companies [PDF]
Dr Milton GwakwaAbstract
The debate on motivation has been there for a long time, revolving on whether money is a motivator or not? The purpose of this study is to establish whether money is the only motivator. The study reveals that while money is regarded as a high motivator, they are also other critical factors such as- recognition, safety, feedback, teamwork, recognition, social networks and self-esteem that move employees in organisations. A review of existing studies complemented by cross sectional case study based approach in which 38 employees in Botswana were interviewed provided further findings on the cash based controversy phenomena within the motivation circles. The results indicate that the association between salary and job satisfaction is very weak. Furthermore, the correlation between pay and pay satisfaction appears not marginally higher indicating that people’s satisfaction with their salary is mostly independent of their actual salary. The study recommends a combination of money based incentives with non-monetary rewards as the two complement one another. The results from this mini-survey and review of exiting secondary data have important implications for management: that is; if we want an engaged workforce, money is clearly not the answer. In fact, if we want employees to be happy with their pay, money is not the answer. In a nutshell: money does not buy engagement and engagement is more critical and encompassing in enhancing employee performance than monetary incentives in many a case.

Indigenous knowledge of Crop Pest with Control Practice of Farmers of Southwest Ethiopia [PDF]
Alemayehu DagneCrop production is highly affected by harmful organisms in which the quality and quantity of harvest is being deteriorate. The study was primarily aimed to assess farmer knowledge of pests with practicability of control mechanism employed by farmers. Community based cross-sectional study was carried out in May to June 2019. A validated structured questionnaire, face-to-face interview, focal group discussion with elders and key informant with experts were used for data collection. For the sake of triangulation, personal observation was conducted. The data was analysed using logistic regression using SPSS version 16. Out of 422 farmers estimated to be included in the study 398 of them provided complete information while the remaining 24 were not found in the house during the date of interview or unable to complete the questionnaire. Consequently, almost three fourth, 295 (74.3 %) of them had excellent knowledge while the remaining 25.7 % of the farmers possessed good knowledge. Even though farmers of the age group 26–35 had a bit higher percentage of excellent knowledge (76.7 %) than the other two age groups i.e., 15–25 (71.7 %) and 36–45 (71 %), the association was not statistically significant (P = 0.85). In an effort to control pest, majority of farmers used cultural method in the form of crop rotation, row plantation, weed control, and time of sawing. Hand removal, mimicry (for wild pests), noisemakers and creating barriers were used as mechanical pest control method.
THE EFFECTS OF CLIMATE VARIABILITY ON COFFEE PRODUCTION IN MOSHI RURAL DISTRICT, TANZANIA [PDF]
Denis Mbilinyi, Ponsian Temba, Edward Mwajamila, Mwenge Catholic University- Moshi TanzaniaThis paper aimed at exploring the effects of climate variability on coffee production in Moshi rural district. So-cio-economic survey design was used and both qualitative and quantitative research approaches was employed. Data were collected using questionnaires survey, key informant interviews, focus group discussions as well as field observation. A total of 96 farmers were involved in the study. The Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) was used to analyse the data. The data were presented in condensed form in terms of tables, and fig-ures.The findings revealed that communities were knowledgeable about the effects of climate variability. Their knowledge was based on the effects already felt and attributed to climate variability, including unpredictable patterns of rainy seasons. Climate variability was associated with decrease in cash crop production and increase in household food supply, unpredictable farming calendar including drying of water sources used for irrigation and domestic uses. The findings revealed a decreasing trend of Coffee yields during the year 1990 to 2016. The decreasing trend of coffee production in the area was not only contributed by climate change variability but also fall of coffee price in the world market. The communities in the study area developed different adaptation strategies in responding to effects of climate variability. The developed strategies include among others; crop substitution, intercropping, planting early maturing crops and drought resistant crops and the use of traditional canal irrigation system. The projected climate change effects show that; the future is unreriable for rain-fed dependancy farming practices. Therefore, this paper recommended farmers options to include among others irrigation of crops and conservation farming with a potential to increasing coffee production in order to ensure food security as well as socio economic development of farming communities.

TSETIM, James Tersoo, ASENGE Emmanuel Lubem, ADUDU Chiangi Adudu- Entrepreneurial leadership has been tipped as one of the millennium solutions to challenges associated with the current competitive and dynamic global business environment. Majority of businesses operating in the localities of Benue state in Nigeria including Makurdi, the state capital are on small and medium scale. For decades now, SME’s are considered as an important aspect of Nigeria’s economy and this makes it quite necessary to investigate the extent to which entrepreneurial leadership may boost performance of SMEs in Benue state. Considering this fact, this study seeks to examine the effect of entrepreneurial leadership on performance of Small and Medium Scale Enterprises in Benue state, Nigeria. The study employed a quantitative survey research design. To ascertain the relationship between the variables, this study targeted a population of 708 owners/ managers who assume leadership positions in SMEs across Benue state. This number cuts across sectors like food processing, livestock rearing, trading, art/craft, bakery, table water, fashion and designing/hair dressing and ICT. Out of this figure 400 managers/leaders were selected to represent the sample through purposive sampling technique. The data collection instrument for the study was a self-administered questionnaire A validity and reliability test was carried out on 30 employees from other organizations who were not part of the sample and through Cronbach’s alpha the overall reliability co-efficient of 0.896 was obtained. The instrument was therefore considered consistent to be used in this study. The cleansed data was further quantitatively analyzed by product moment correlation and multiple regression. Correlation was used to determine the magnitude of the relationship between entrepreneurial leadership and performance of SMEs while multiple regression was used to test how leadership style explains changes in business performance of SMEs. Hypotheses were tested at 0.05 level of significance. Analysis was done with the aid of Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS 21). Results of correlation analysis reveal that there is significant relationship between all the constructs of Entrepreneurial leadership (miner behavior, explorer behavior, accelerator behavior and integrator behavior) and performance of SMEs. The result of regression analysis showed that miner behavior, explorer behavior, accelerator behavior and integrator behavior jointly contribute to the observed change in SMEs performance. This study concludes that entrepreneurial leadership behaviors of managers/owners of SMEs significantly affect performance of such SMEs. Arising from the findings and conclusion, it is recommended that mangers/owners of SMEs avail themselves to available training options on how to effectively create and communicate vision as this is found to be a leadership behavior that positively correlates performance of SMEs. This study also recommends that entrepreneurs to develop their ability to inspire followers and act as role models for followers, as well as refine their opportunity recognition, innovation, and creativity skills since this too significantly affects firm performance. Finally, it is recommended that entrepreneurs should seek out development opportunities to enhance their entrepreneurial leadership skills before and during a business venture

INVESTIGATION OF THE EFFECTS OF LEACHATE FROM SOLID WASTE DUMPSITE ON GROUNDWATER USING ELECTRICAL RESISTIVITY METHOD. [PDF]
AGADA LIVINUS, ADETOLA S. ONIKU, OSITA MELUDUABSTRACT
This study was carried out to investigate the effects of leachate on groundwater in Gashua, Nigeria. A total of ten (10) vertical electrical resistivity sounding (VES) using Schlumberger electrode configuration and ten (10) profiles of electrical resistivity tomography (ERT) using Wenner electrode configuration were used to investigate the effects of leachate on groundwater in Gashua and its environs. The electrical resistivity field data were interpreted by using Winresist for VES and RES2DINV for ERT. The results of the electrical resistivity survey revealed that the study area is composed of five geoelectrical layers which are; the topsoil, clay, sand, sandy clay and sand. The resistivity of the first layer range from 42.7 to 199.7Ωm and its thickness range from 0.6 to 1.9m, the second layer has resistivity ranging from 16.5 to 37.9Ωm with a thickness ranging from 4.1 to 10.7m. The resistivity of the third layer ranges from 101.2 to 288.2Ωm and its thickness ranges from 38.9 to 99.7m, it is the first aquifer in the study area. The fourth layer has resistivity ranging from 100.7 to 214.3Ωm and its thickness ranges from 28.5 to 94m. The fifth layer is the second aquifer and its resistivity ranges from 254 to 350Ωm. It has a very large thickness. The aquifer resistivity ranged from 101.2 to 288.2Ωm for the first aquifer and from 253.8 to 350.1Ωm for the second aquifer. The 2D electrical resistivity tomography (ERT) profiles showed areas of low resistivity zones which were interpreted as zones infiltrated by contaminants from the dumpsites and high resistivity zones depict areas with less or non-conductive materials in the study area. Results from the four solid waste dumpsites showed that leachate from the waste dumpsites infiltrated into the aquifers and polluted the groundwater. The presence of the contaminants in the groundwater was identified by a decrease in the formation resistivity values. It is evident, from the results of the geophysical survey that the water in the study area is polluted and it is responsible for the prevalence of water related diseases common in the study area.
Keywords: Resistivity, leachate, groundwater, pollution, geophysical and infiltration.
