Antibiotic Resistance
22. June 2019 at 01:29
by Abdelrahman Elaraby
Humans developed antimicrobial drugs to destroy diseases caused by microbes. The most common known antimicrobial is antibiotic which targets the bacteria. At the beginning of the 21st century the antimicrobial resistance has become very common, so we have to understand this phenomenon scientifically to prevent it from becoming a fatal disaster later.

Bacteria are prokaryotic microorganisms that have the ability to enter the body replicating and growing causing serious diseases. Antibiotics agents interfere with specific processes that are essential for growth and/or division either for killing bacteria or at least stopping their growth. But How Drugs Interfere With Bacterial Growth And Division?


Proteins are important components in the cell to function normally, so some antibiotics inhibit the protein synthesis by inhibiting ribosomes thus stopping protein synthesis which results in bacterial death.


 Folic acid (one of B vitamins) can’t enter the bacteria, so the bacteria have to synthesize it, as it is important for the bacterial growth, by the help of a certain enzyme called dihydropteroate synthase. Antibiotics like...

June 12: A kind reward worth a democracy day achieved
22. June 2019 at 01:27
by Dickson Eyinmosan Jnr.
From activist to students unions down to the regular Nigerian citizen, all was set for an epoch making events that many believe will inadvertently turn the fortune of a Nation into a charismatic candor of gloom and boom worthy of emulation thereafter. But behold, event took a negative nose dive to the consternation of many as not even the international community was spared in this horrendous and torrential shock not even the greatest fortune teller of all time could ever imagined.

Nigerians have never had it good. They have never had it so real and unassuming, but alas, on this day June 12, 1993, they shocked themselves in oneness as they all came out en-mass in one voice regardless of ethno-religious sentiments. It was a day that the most populous black nation shocked the global community both with a sacred heart kindness and a perfect blend of rare pristine civility. June 12 as it were, brought to the front-burner the hormonal coordination of a nation once known as the pride of Africa.


Behold, it was June 12, 1993 election D-Day. Many Nigerians had barely taken their shower; others had barely eaten, while some others gallantly endured the pain that comes along with an empty stomach as they took solace in the obvious euphoria of the moment, knowing same will bring good tiding afterwards.

Social Parasites Endangering the Survival of Pakistan
22. June 2019 at 01:25
by Zulfiqar Ali Ramzan
Since its inception in 1947, Pakistan has faced various issues from social inequality, political instability, to economic disparity. These issues have been and are still thwarting the growth of Pakistan. Unless social inequalities creating hindrance to the growth of Pakistan are eradicated, peace and prosperity cannot be effectively achieved.

Since its inception in 1947, Pakistan has faced various issues from social inequality, political instability, to economic disparity. These issues have been and are still thwarting the growth of Pakistan. To this, many such measures were taken to eradicate this menace. However, stability in the country is still a distant dream. Pakistan has been bestowed upon by nature many natural resources. Unfortunately, they have been unevenly distributed by the elite class of society, creating social inequality. Moreover, politicians and their personnel have won seats on the rhetoric that they will bring social equality and justice in society. On this point, the country’s various governments have, in particular, failed to provide the fundamental rights to its people. And unless these inequalities are eradicated, peace and prosperity for this countr...

An African Boy’s Dreams
14. June 2019 at 15:08
by Nana Kwaku M Asamoah
As a devoted young African, with an insatiable desire and perpetual drive for the prosperity of the African people, I regularly dream about our status in the world and our common destiny as one people.

To a young African boy, a dream represents an enemy, an upset to the “powers that be”. Nevertheless, the boy has the right to dream and my dream for my future is to pursue graduate studies in Economics and contribute to the development of my country, Ghana. I need dreams because I know that as human beings, not only can we dream our future but we can also grow great by our dreams. Fortunately for me and my countrymen, Ghana has seen a very peaceful and prosperous fourth republic. So, my dream for my country is that it should continue to be peaceful, prosperous and serve as the beacon of hope for Africa.


My future is only my dreams, of course, but my dreams for my future is unachievable if my continent remains a place of uncertainty, with n...

How Great Thou Art
14. June 2019 at 15:06
by Christopher Tawiah-mensah
How beautiful is the mind's eye? We connect dots with acrylic and canvas, understand the meanings behind the curves and crevices. Nod our heads to the smell of oil paint on the antiques at the gallery, but fail to comprehend that a white flag does not only signify victory, but an act of surrender too.

If paintings could say everything on a 24 × 40 cm board, I would be the opposite of not being an artist. The flow, the glow, the soul, the whole, the excitement, the tranquility amidst fulfilment, O me, O God! Paint me a rose and thorn my stems- leave me imperfect. Wall my walls with humanity and save me an inn to live in. At least thence I would tell my stories outside a frame. Outside acrylic. Outside canvas.


Howbeit that a painting be more peaceful than sunshine and safer than moonlight yet spring from a taunting mind? Maybe art cares less about our insecurities. Maybe she does care. Maybe the pose of the wired lady with beads on her waist and ankle is erotic rather than an epitome of pain. Maybe the Yin and Yang symbol was just drawn to be an emblem of unity rather than the light and darkness, or masculine and femi...

UDUS Management Bane Indecent Dressing
14. June 2019 at 15:05
by Yasir Ibrahim
One of the notable values of Africa is its rich cultural background, and as such, there is no time in our history that indecent dressing can be linked to our heritage. The depth of this ungodly and morally-repugnant attitude is sunk deeply in tertiary institutions.

The management are beginning to express fears over the spate of indecent dressing on our campus, especially by ladies, noting this phenomenon, that was once alien to Africa, is gradually becoming a norm and is contributing to the increase in the rate of immorality and other ills plaguing the society and campus.

Recalled that, the management through the student affairs division in collaboration with the security unit ordered the men in blue (Security) to be chasing back to hostel any student seen dress indecently. The men in blue are mounted at various corner in the university at early hour of the day assessing the outfits of every students particularly ladies.

A Civil Society Organization, under the aegis of United Youth Leaders for Development Initiative, has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to appoint young persons as Ministers, in some of the Federal ministries of government.


This was contained in a statement released by the President of the group, Comrade Okwudili Victor, in Abuja, where he emphasised that youths are the leaders of today and not tomorrow that would never come. 

In his words "we are the leader of today with innovative ideas to transform our immediate environment positively for progress".

Life is beautiful with Black and White keys
14. June 2019 at 15:03
by Oluwadamilola Adigun
Life is beautiful with Black and White keys. As much as I love music, I have found it pretty difficult to learn a musical instrument. Maybe I will learn it in some years to come. Anyways, while in the church listening to the melodious sounds, I saw the skillful pianist fingers running through the piano.

Every sound made me shake my head and feet in response to the melody. I wished the choir never got to the last stanza. The music brought healing to my soul.

You know music is sweet to the soul


But while enjoying the melody of the song, I took a closer look at the piano, I was surprised I saw mixtures of colors on the piano. I saw the colors white and color black. To be candid, I really loved the white keys., but right within me, I had a bit of confusion and question, Why will black keys produce sweet sounds? Black is not my favorite color. I love something colorful.


So I watched the hands of the skillful musician and I noticed he had to play the black and white keys to get the awesome sound. I expected the black keys to produce an awful sound, rather, the sound was pleasant. I discover that when...

Climate Change An Undeniable Reality
14. June 2019 at 14:58
by Kunal Bansal Chandigarh
Seas are becoming warmer, and sea levels are increasing. More prolonged and more severe droughts endanger crops, wildlife, and freshwater supplies. From Marine turtles off the coast of Africa to polar bears in the Arctic, because of changing climate, the diversity of life in our planet is in danger.

CAUSES OF CLIMATE CHANGE


  • THE GREENHOUSE EFFECT

Carbon dioxide, methane, and other gases trap heat in the atmosphere and regulate our climate. In the correct proportion, these gases perform an essential function, ensuring the atmosphere could hold enough heat and the planet could support every kind of life on it. These gases are naturally present in the environment, but humans are adding more of these gases by consuming fossil fuels for energy (coal, oil, and natural gas).

The rise in global te...
