Questions related to Ethiopia
I found a research topic on knowledge sharing using social capital on Bank Y in USA. Can I do the same research topic - knowledge sharing using social capital in Bank X in Ethiopia. The two banks are different in level of technology use, appreciation of knowledge sharing, the business context economic development, etc. Can this research be publishable to a journal article as original work?
Is there anybody suggest or describe this maize disease (cause) or Deficiency of minerals? This days common on some maize farmers in Ethiopia.
I want to analyze an interrupted time series analysis to see the change of service coverage and other health impacts like maternal and child death due to the war in Tigray, Ethiopia. How can I do this? is there anyone who can help me by sending a good reference material? is there anyone interesting to be co-authored with me?
A Researcher is conducting their research at different level maybe on less important plant diseases, any one who can tell me the most important pathogens of any crop in Ethiopia: Preferably on Economically important crop?

- There is a fast-paced land-use change (urbanization) in one of the sub-watersheds (dominantly agricultural watershed) of the upper Blue Nile basin.
- There is both residential and industrial expansion that may have an impact on the riverine regime of the catchment including water quality.
- There is also currently an effort being made by the local sector to regulate the water flow (mainly the flood during the main rainy season) for irrigation purposes to enhance the agricultural productivity in that area.
- Hence, it calls to research the WFE nexus to come up with a better synergy between the health of the ecosystem and development.
i am working on my doctoral dissertation on work-family balance of working women in Ethiopia. and then i could not access the full version of Valcour's scale for work-family balance. so that i will have detailed information about the scoring and other procedures of using the scale.
We have been preparing predictive soil property (sand, Silt, Clay, pH and EC of the top soil) maps for an area (about 60 km2) using Digital soil mapping techniques in R with random forest in Southern Ethiopia. About 33 covariates were used. The results revealed that the R squared values for instance for clay fraction of the top soil is negative and very small (-0.12). Can R square values be negative? If so, what are the implications of such results?
Research has been performed on the history of coffee (plantation, trade, consumption) in modern times, but little seems available with regards prehistoric times. I am aware of just one paper by Hilderbrand, et al. (2010) - https://www.jstor.org/stable/40930991 - which mentions two partial seeds of Coffea arabica found at Kumali rockshelter in southwest Ethiopia in layers dated after 1740 BP.
Is there any other research available?

I was gathering data about Arsi University Bekoji campus, and I observed something about the city planning. On the right side of the google image (in 2019), you can see the new urban development, and on the left side, what is most probably agricultural villages and Greenfield. The new urban development follows one of the typical city plannings I have seen all over Ethiopia, which follows a grid pattern to arrange the urban blocks and in contrast, the Greenfield has its own block pattern, which I think is the result of the social, cultural, and historical way of arranging plot of lands. It shows the trails of what is left of the ‘traditional planning.’ My whole point here is, why don’t the city planners appreciate and try to incorporate the traditional/ unexplored knowledge into the planning. That way, each city can have a unique experience and preserve the inhabitants’ lifestyle. Of course, my assumptions might be wrong, so if you are from, visited, or lived in Arisi, I would like to know what you think? Or let me know what you think about the planning ?

Early civilisations, including Ethiopia, have been found in sub-Saharan Africa but dating back to early Christian times. I suspect little money and effort has been expended to find more within homo sapiens original home, certainly compared to the money spent on the search for ancient human fossils.
Simple assumptions, prejudice or the need to redefine civilisation? While the previous term is employed for settlements or cities, these are further defined as ones of stone or brick. Usually, they exhibited the same structural or design qualities with large central buildings and defined areas of settlement based on class.
In Central Asia at the time of the early great Sumerian cities like Uruk, a huge Kurgan complex of tents existed. Archaeologists and historians do not of course refer to it as a civilisation, at least in the same way they reference Sumeria.
If some attempt is made, will we find huge settlements of mud huts covering wide areas throughout the region? Will we also discover writing?
My post today is directed to registered nurses from Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, and South Africa.
I am interested in collecting research data from the African countries listed above. Thus, I would like to collaborate with one nurse from each of these countries. The nurse will be responsible for coordinating the data collection in the country and all the logistics related to that country. In return, the nurse will get more research experience and payment or research experience and co-authorship in the resulting publications.
The population will be women who have undergone mastectomy and those who are scheduled to undergo mastectomy. This means that you must be working in a healthcare facility that offers such surgical services.
Please send a direct message to my inbox if you are interested. We will discuss the details of the study if you are ready, willing, and eligible.
Please share with your contacts.

Why do you think is the reason that the American government interference with the inhouse affairs of independent countries such as Ethiopia?
I see repeated interferences from the side of America with the different cases of independent countries such as Ethiopia. Is it really viable to do so? Is there a viable reason for Americans to do so? Is that not unethical to interfere with matters of independent nations?

I found this policy recommendation, ''In order to avoid slum expansion, the urban land laws have to be revised and the land ownership right has to be partially transferred to individuals. Currently, illegal selling of land is rampant as the landholders afraid the government will take the land anytime, against their will. This has created illegal land grabbing, slum expansion, pollution, and loss of agricultural capacity. Therefore, legalizing land sales, controlling the process, and preparation proper land-use plans will eliminate the problem from the root. The government will also collect tax from the sale. It will also support the landholder to use their land as collateral for a construction loan for the building project. However, as land is the main source of income for the government, transferring fully might affect the financial and decision-making capacity of the government. Therefore, I recommend partially transferring the land resource to individuals. The amount of land to be owned by individuals can be regulated by law so that a fair amount of land can be distributed to citizens''.

Lead is most dangerous to children, especially those under six. According to CDC nearly one half of a million children living in the United States have levels of lead in their blood that exceed ten micrograms of lead per deciliter of blood, a level at which adverse health effects are known to occur. Lead poisoning can affect virtually every body system; it can damage a child’s central nervous system, kidneys, and reproductive system. Why lead is most dangerous to children? and how can we prevent it?

I have question, is there any means to sequence plant associated plant growth promoting bacteria and fungal isolates in your laboratory? as collaborative work.
these strategies have been addressed for about two decades in Ethiopia but the results received from all these attempts are very discouraging. Some Ethiopian scholars have been doing research on the possible reasons behind the problem and suggested solutions accordingly. In spite of all these attempts, we failed to get a viable solution to the existing problem. So, the problem still exists in its exaggerated form. Is there anyone who can advise me about the possible solutions that could boost-up the effective implementation of the two strategies in the Ethiopian context as a developing nation, please?

- In my life I have so many questions rotating in the mind. Some of them are getting answers. Some others are without any valid answers. Always I ask my self some interesting extra-ordinary questions. This questions may be the key to the existence of life. I am not sure the purpose of living on Earth. I don't know whether the Earth by itself created on purpose. We have our own purpose. For that particular purpose we are rushing fast to accomplish it within a given time that is our age. Age is one of the limiting factor that stops humans from continuity. As an animal production expert I have so many ideas filling my mind. Some of them are research topics, but there are so many problems limiting my progress. In Ethiopia, there are nutshell of solutions, particularly in pastoral and ago-pastoral areas of Ethiopia.
