Georesources and the Developmental Agenda of Nigeria in the Era of Globalisation
(University of Lagos Press and Bookshop Ltd., 2023-09-20)
DEFINITIONS: GEORESOURCES, GEOLOGY, ROCKS AND MINERALS Georesources refers to all geological resources that serve as the basis for life in modern-day society. They include mineral, soil, groundwater and energy resources. The word Geology originated from the Greek words "geo" which means Earth and Logos meaning knowledge or study of. The realm of geology encompasses the study of the materials that make up the Earth, the associated structures and features, and the processes that produce or act on them. Modern geology also involves the study of rocks, mineralisation and geologic features of celestial bodies. Geology is an interdisciplinary science that stands at the crossroads between mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology and materials science. As a result, many scientists use the term ‘geoscience’ for it. Because geology is underpinned by these branches of science, geologists are usually well-rounded scientists with a good grasp of many cross-disciplinary scientific concepts.
Models: Catalyst for system diagnosis and decision making
(University of Lagos Press Works and Physical Planning Complex, 2023-09-06)
NTRODUCTION For my audience to fully understand this lecture, there is a need for me to shed some light on the keywords of this lecture. To this end, we need to know what is model, catalyst, system and decision. Models: A model, as used in operations research, is a representative of an actual object or situation, usually smaller than the original object it represents. It shows the relationship (direct and indirect) and inter-relationship of the various parts of units of the entity it represents, as well as the action and reaction in terms of cause and effect. Catalyst: A catalyst is a substance that speeds up chemical reactions without really affecting the end result of the process or change itself
So Deadly, So Preventable: the Quest to Conquer Cervical Cancer
(University of Lagos Press and Bookshop Ltd, 2023-08-04)
“SO DEADLY, SO PREVENTABLE” … part of the title of my inaugural lecture is a slogan on a flyer I posted on the door of my office more than 10 years ago. I never knew it would become part of the title of my Inaugural Lecture. My duty as an obstetrician and gynaecologist is to take care of pregnancy, childbirth, and diseases of the female reproductive system, including infections and cancers. One part of the reproductive system that has fascinated me so much and on which I have concentrated most of my studies and research is the CERVIX UTERINE. It is a part of the uterus (womb) and has many other names, such as the mouth of the womb, neck of the womb and passage of the womb.
