Author(s): D. K,Wunzani, M.S,Dauda, F .W,Abdulrahman, A,Bawa, D.A.A,David
Assessment of physico-chemical properties of soil from solid waste dumpsites in Kafanchan metropolis of Kaduna state, Nigeria was carried out. Representative samples of the solid wastes were collected from three selected dumpsites in Kafanchan metropolis respectively. Control samples were obtained from Government Reserved Area land at about 200m away from the dumpsites, using standard sampling methods. Physical and chemical properties of these samples were assessed after extraction. Classical and Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometric methods were used for the analysis. Results obtained were subjected to statistical analysis for the range, mean, standard deviation and Variance using Analysis of variance (ANOVA) and its shows that, the concentration of most of the parameters were significantly different within the dumpsites. The comparison of the results of the dumpsites and control, shows that, most of the parameters from the dumpsites were higher than that of the control site. Therefore, the soil from the dumpsites are rich with plants micronutrients and macronutrients. Thus, the dumps from the dumpsites can be used as compost for soil amendment..

Author(s): Mohammed D.Toungos, Mamudu Njodi, Mu’Azu Babayola, H.Kashim
The multilocational field experiment were conducted at Yola and Mubi locations to study the performance of five (5) SAMMAZ Varieties of maize Viz: SAMMAZ 11, SAMMAZ 14, SAMMAZ 15, SAMMAZ 16, and SAMMAZ 17 in the northern guinea savannah zone of Nigeria, during the 2011 cropping season. The experiment was laid in a split plot design with maize varieties as the main plot treatments, while plant population, (53,333, 63,333, 80,000 and 106,666) as the sub-plot treatments. The treatment were replicated three (3) times. Characters measured included plant height, number of leaves per plant, number of days to 50% tasseling, number of day to 50 % silking, days to 95% maturity, stem diameter, length of ear, diameter of ear, number of grains per ear, 100 grain weight, Yield per plot and total grain yield per hectare. The result of the experiments showed that there was significant difference due to varietal effect in plant height at 3 WAS in Yola and at 7 WAS and 9 WAS in Mubi. Variety also affects days to 50% tasseling, days to 50% silking and days to 95% maturity at both locations. Interaction of variety and population affected harvest index in Mubi. Population significantly affected yield per plant, yield per plot, total grain yield per hectare in both locations. Combined analysis result showed highly significant effect due to location on plant height at 3 and 5 WAS and also due to variety, was highly significant at 3 and 5 WAS. Varieties affected number of leaves per plant significantly at 5 and 9 WAS and highly significant at 11 WAS. Location and varieties affected days to 50% tasseling, days to 50 % silking and days to 95% maturity highly significantly while population only affected days to 50% silking significantly. Diameter of ear and harvest index was highly significantly affected by location and significantly on number of grains per row. Varieties affected length of ear significantly. Location affected straw weight per plant highly significantly. SAMMAZ 15 which gave a plant population of 106,666 ha-1is recommended at the two locations.

Applying Thesaurus-Based Semantic Compression for Afaan Oromo Text Retrieval
Author(s): Tesfaye Tadele, Debela Tesfaye, Shimelis.S
Nowadays, the amount of information resource available on the Internet and World Wide Web (WWW) is increasing rapidly from day to day. Due to this reason, retrieving the appropriate information from these resources is becoming more and more complex task for information seekers. This situation makes it difficult for the users to identify the relevant information that match their information needs. Like in other languages, there are huge amount of electronic information resources that generate every day in Ethiopian languages.Specially, in Afaan Oromo. The growing amount of information resources are challenging for archival and searching specific information from them. Therefore, developing an effective information retrieval system for Afaan Oromo that allows searching and retrieving relevant documents as per user information needs is important. In an attempt to address this need, researchers have developed some information retrieval systems (IR). However, there is evidence that these IR systems have yet attained any promising system performance. This underperformance can be due to various reasons; the main cause of the IR system underperformance is due to semantic term mismatch or semantic nature of the natural language. Besides this, there has been no attempt made for Afaan Oromo IR (AOIR) system using semantic compression approach. Therefore, to solve these issues, integrating of thesaurus based semantic compression technique with generic IR system will improve performance of AOIR system. In this study, we have developed AOIR using thesaurus based semantic compression approach. The developed prototype has both indexing and searching parts. For experiment, 106 Afaan Oromo text documents collected from news articles, the Afaan Oromo Bible, websites and books by the researchers. Then, different text operations such as; tokenization, normalization, stop word removal and stemming were used to identify content bearing terms. Following this, tf-idf term weighting scheme is used to compute the weight of each content bearing term. Finally, semantic compression is applied in which semantic representation of each term is identified and thesaurus based inverted indexing structure is used in document indexing. The experiment is conducted using two ways, the first experiment is conducted without considering the synonymous search term and the second experiment is conducted by using thesaurus based indexing. From conducted experiment, the average result of 58.451% precision, 78.438% recall, and 61.520% F-measure are registered without thesaurus based semantic compression approach and thesaurus based semantic compression technique showed 71.014%, 89.287% and 77.715% average precision, recall and F-measure respectively. However, the system performance is still affected by the problem of polysemy.Therefore, additional work has recommended in order improving the system performance so that it can advance the AOIR further by using different techniques.

Clayey soil is known for its high swell potential and low shear strength. Ultrasonic pulse velocity test was performed on compacted clayey soil while studying experimentally, the relationship between Velocity, Max. dry density, Optimum Moisture content, Time with varying percentage of admixtures. The soil sample was collected from Davanagere and addition to that, different percentages of admixture was added to find the variation in its density. In this paper density was determined by Standard proctor test and for the sample Ultrasonic pulse velocity test was conducted to determine p-waves. This method is fast and simple approach for determining the characteristics of compacted stabilized soil. This is a non destructive method used as an alternative to existing methods to analyse laboratory or semi field compacted soils. The empirical equations proposed in this study for predicting density, water content, velocity is encouraging.
