Can a tuition-free school system be used to enrol out-of-school children as a long-term common cause in a sustainable way? It is obvious that one of the reasons illiteracy breeds and flourishes is when deserving children are placed on automation to drop out of school or never go near school at all for a variety of reasons that cannot be explained in a single word. It is also important that something be done about it. A reasonable systematic solution is required for a systemic difficulty. In Nigeria, the reality of out-of-school children has become unbelievable. What is your take?

In the coming decade, Africa will be met with an avalanche of challenges. The consequences of not taking the required steps to avert the coming climate crisis and for not capitalizing on the 4th industrial revolution. These two pose the greatest threat to the welfare and lives of the average African. However, they also present an unlikely opportunity for Africa to shock the world. An opportunity that must not be missed.
If Africans (not necessarily African governments but Africans themselves) can in joint action, create an unprecedented transformation of the African society between now and the end of the present decade (just in time for the climate crisis and the wave of the 4th Industrial revolution), I.e. If Africans can create a new African society capable of averting the impending climate crisis, then Africa can and will capitalize on the 4th industrial revolution.
Subsequently once this happens, Africa will be placed on an unstoppable path of drastic developments in areas such as, infrastructure, agriculture, commerce, media, science and technology etc. In easier terms - A golden age..

Is there any centralized database that would list and preferably also shown on a map all Eurasian and African archaeological sites from years 5000 - 1500 BCE? I would need to see, whether the appearance of archaeological sites correlates with the appearance of ancient place names.
Our team studied the geographic distribution of 15 ancient name sets to see, where they appear as place names and personal names. We found out that most of the ancient name sets seem to have their urheimat in India (e.g. Phoenician, Hyksos, Mitanni, Berber, Sea Peoples and Ethiopian) or have a very strong connection with India. The second highest density of ancient names was found in the river valleys of Volta and Niger in Africa, with relatively high density also along Danube and at the western parts of Eufrat & Tigris.

Girl child education is an important component in the transformation of society, country and the entire world. It plays a key role in the national growth rates rise, decline in the maternal mortality rates, decline in child mortality rates fall and increase e lifetime earning of girls (UNICEF, 2020). A key aspect of girl child education is that it strengthens the economy of the country, reduces inequality, gives individual opportunity to fulfill their potentiality in the society and enable them to become more stable, resilient and useful members of the society. Traditionally, girl-child education (particularly in some states of the region, Northern part of Nigeria) have subscribed to the belief that educating a girl is a waste of time and that western education may impose negative attitude on the girls. Substantive bodies of researches have shown that socio-cultural factors, such as religious belief, and patriarchal norms impact on girl-child education (Jane, 2008; Usman et al., 2019). However, a major problem with these factors is that it will affect girl-child enrolment in schools, access to quality education, school attendance and academic achievement of the child.

The Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS), in a letter dated 10 August 2021, addressed to the Association of Bureau De Change, confirmed that Bureau De Change (BDC) operators are not liable to charge Value Added Tax (VAT) on the sale of Foreign Exchange (Forex) with effect from 1, January 2021.
In Nigeria, BDC operators are regulated by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), who determines Forex buying and selling rates. However, the income earned by BDC operators have continued to come under pressure due to the statutory commission paid to the CBN and the imposition of VAT by the FIRS, who argues that the income earned by the BDC operators are liable to VAT. Given this challenge, BDC operators and stakeholders had engaged the government to obtain VAT exemption for their operations.
Please this is open for discussion

A major function of planning education is to achieve rapid social development at a minimum cost. A situation where planning education using whatever process, methods and technologies has failed to achieve positive results call for a critical re-examination of current planning practices in the south-south of Nigeria. The besetting problem with planning education in the south-south of Nigeria seems to be the fact that education planners and school administrators involved in the planning process are nonchalant about effective use of data, experts, professionals and work as a team towards result oriented plan for sustainable development of the education system.

The best geologist, they say, "is the one who has seen the most rocks". One begins to wonder the future of geological mapping in the state of rising insecurity in Nigeria. The pleasure and associated leisure of field studies/work is becoming life threatening largely because of the neglect of securing life and properties. Who will rise to the call and save our profession. On one hand, its as though, its the farmers that are most hit, on the other, look closely, geosciences is largely hit by this ugly development.... pls what are your thoughts

I wil be grateful for any help. I have a problem with frontier function. I want to make a model of life expectancy in 11 countries depending on some factors (consumption of alcohol, school years, gross national income per capita and etc.) using frontier method for panel data (from 2000 to 2013 year) to calculate efficiency of national care system at the end. I've made a model and then used the command
predict te, te
for each country but the meanings are very small and almost the same. Due to the fact I took into consideration different countries (from Australia to Nigeria) it is impossible that efficiency of national care system are equal. Besides, I've calculated u and tried to calculate e^(-u), but what is the difference between u and te? I've spent a lot of time to sort out this, but overall I don't understand clearly:(
