- ItemOpen AccessA Heartfelt Journey of Discoveries: 'Little Hearts', Genes and Faces(University of Lagos Press and Bookshop Limited, 2023-02-01) Ekure, E.N.What is Paediatric Cardiology? . . My discipline, Paediatric Cardiology, is a field of Medicine that studies disorders of the heart and some parts of the Circulatory system in children, hence "Little hearts". It developed as a discipline from early descriptive studies of congenital heart defects. It is a specialty built on the ground-breaking work of two determined women, Maude Abbott, MD, and Helen B. Taussig, MD, FACC. Maude Abbott went through hundreds. of pathology specimens to completely define what congenital heart disease was. This knowledge of pathology from the Atlas of Congenital Heart Disease written by Abbot enabled Helen Taussig to figure out what she thouqht needed to be done for "blue babies" (babies with cyanosis because of heart malformation that prevents the baby's blood from being. fully oxygenated). In the mid-1940s, Helen collabor~t.ed w~t~ a surgeon, Alfred Blalock, MD, and a surgical techniCian, Vlvl~n Thomas to develop the Blalock-Thomas-Taussig shunt which improved pulmonary blood f10~ in "blue" babies with Tetra~o~y of Fallot allowing them to survive. Therefore, Helen Tausslq IS fondly described as the "Mother of Paediatric Cardiology". As a result, paediatric cardiologists are doctors who diagnose, treat, and prevent heart problems in children and adolescents.

- ItemOpen AccessAlternative Urbanisms: Beyond Utopian Visions of the 'Emerging' African City(University of Lagos Press and Bookshop Limited, 2023-06-21) Lawanson, T.OMY CAREER TRAJECTORY AND PHILOSOPHICAL INTIMATIONS My initiation into the field of urban studies with a focus on propoor development was by Professor David Olanrewaju, who supervised my Bachelor's Dissertation titled: 'Informal Activities in the Survival of the Urban Poor'. While traversing the slums of Amukoko and Ajegunle in 1998, the question that intrigued me was: 'How do the Poor survive in the City? I, therefore, made it my business to attempt to comprehend the inscrutable survival tactics of the urban poor. The focus of my master's dissertation (The Urban Poor: A Comparative Analysis of their Survival Strategies in Southwestern Nigeria) and doctoral thesis (Assessment of Economic Activities of Home-Based Enterprises in Residential Areas of the Lagos Metropolis1 ), as well as output of subsequent scholarship, advocacy and activism attest to this. Twenty-five years later, the questions have to a large extent re~ained the same: How do everyday urban citizens cope wIth and/or respond to urban life? What can we learn from their lived experiences? How can these be leveraged for sustainable urban development?

- ItemOpen AccessArchitecture: the search for identity and continuity(University of Lagos Press, 1998-02-11) Aradeon, DIn the next one hour, we will be discussing architecture; first as a synthesis of man/socio-ecological interaction and the chronicle of his specific culture. Second, as a symbol of identity and continuity. We shall focus on examples from within the physical boundaries of our cultural ecology. We shall also draw examples from other cultures. In doing so, we are acknowledging that cultural boundaries are porous partly because, communication has shrunken distances and truncated cultural boundaries. But cultural boundaries still do exist as a physical entity less so today than before. It is fluid even though discernible. In the same space, cultures exist and co-exist; as host and "stranger" cultures within the same environment. The .perception about any group as "diaspora people", or the "ghetto culture" are examples of this fluidity.

- ItemOpen AccessThe Beauty and Power of Numbers: Building Blocks for Mathematics and Scientific Development(University of Lagos Press, 2018-09-19) Odogwu, H.NThe study of Mathematics as a core subject cuts across all boards and has always left us with one question, "Why should Mathematics continue to be a compulsory subject in primary, secondary and to some extent in tertiary levels of education?" Those that questioned why Mathematics should be retained as a core course at the secondary school level or beyond, only vex themselves with using mathematical skills to solve life related problems. This is why I define Mathematics as the father of all forms of logical and rational reasoning, also indispensable in solving life challenges and problems. It is the first of the basic 3Rs of education, which are arithmetic, Reading and writing. What is Mathematics like? It is like air that comes in different forms of levels, e.g. breeze, wind, storm, tornado, hurricane, whirlwind, tempest, cyclone or blizzard. The simple part of mathematics is enjoyable just like a breeze but at the advanced stage of. it can be like a hurricane to those who have no use for It. Mathematics is like two young lovers in a relationship that ended up getting married. It is all about love, affection, romance, etc. But as they move on, it becomes more of responsibilities and hard work to keep it working.
