A Gentle Introduction to Machine Learning Concepts

Given the attention machine learning has received and the sophisticated problems it is solving, it may seem like magic. But it is not. It’s built on a foundation of mathematics and statistics, developed over many decades. One very practical way to think of machine learning is as a unique way of programming computers. Most programming

A Review on Polymer Nanocomposites and Their Effective Applications in Membranes and Adsorbents for Water Treatment and Gas Separation. Membranes. (2021), 11: 139

Globally, environmental challenges have been recognised as a matter of concern. Among
these challenges are the reduced availability and quality of drinking water, and greenhouse gases
that give rise to change in climate by entrapping heat, which result in respirational illness from smog
and air pollution. Globally, the rate of demand for the use of freshwater has outgrown the rate of
population increase; as the rapid growth in town and cities place a huge pressure on neighbouring
water resources. Besides, the rapid growth in anthropogenic activities, such as the generation of
energy and its conveyance, release carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases, warming the planet.
Polymer nanocomposite has played a significant role in finding solutions to current environmental
problems. It has found interest due to its high potential for the reduction of gas emission, and
elimination of pollutants, heavy metals, dyes, and oil in wastewater. The revolution of integrating
developed novel nanomaterials such as nanoparticles, carbon nanotubes, nanofibers and activated
carbon, in polymers, have instigated revitalizing and favourable inventive nanotechnologies for
the treatment of wastewater and gas separation. This review discusses the effective employment of
polymer nanocomposites for environmental utilizations. Polymer nanocomposite membranes for
wastewater treatment and gas separation were reviewed together with their mechanisms. The use of
polymer nanocomposites as an adsorbent for toxic metals ions removal and an adsorbent for dye
removal were also discussed, together with the mechanism of the adsorption process. Patents in
the utilization of innovative polymeric nanocomposite membranes for environmental utilizations
were discussed.

Outcomes of sexual abuse on self-esteem among adolescents: A systematic reviewOutcomes of sexual abuse on self-esteem among adolescents: A systematic review

Abstract The burden of sexual abuse remains a global reality and it is known to affect adolescents’ psycho-social well-being. The current study aimed at determining the unanimity findings on the relationship between sexual abuse and self-esteem among adolescents as well as the concomitant determinants of self-esteem among sexually abused adolescents. To achieve this, a systematic

Gender and paternal psychological abuse on psychopathology symptoms among children and adolescents in Akwa Ibom State, Nigeria

Abstract The third goal of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) aimed at guaranteeing healthy lives and the promotion of well-being for all at all ages by 2030. Quite a number of health-related challenges, such as psychopathological challenges, could hinder the attainment of this laudable goal if not curtailed. Psychopathological difficulties among children and adolescents have

Digital government in the electoral process: implications for elections in Nigeria.

The demand for the improvement in the electoral process in Nigeria is premised on the view that it would reduce the manipulation of the system and make the votes count. The improvement is also to expand the scope of participation and inspire confidence that will ultimately make elections credible and ensure that government is accountable

Heavy Metal composition of Soils in Some Nigerian Communities

The occurrence of heavy metals in some soils is becoming problematic as these affect the environment and public health. Previous studies have shown cadmium levels to be high in South-West Nigeria. Also, water samples taken from the area have high heavy metal content. The local geology may help explain the reason for the high levels
