Antecedents to Adoption of Electronic Payment Systems in Sri Lanka
Dushyantha Kulathunga, Kaushalya Wijesinghe Ekanayake

Abstract: Electronic payment systems (EPS) provide an alternative for traditional payment systems. Even though EPS provide a more convenient method for performing transactions, customers have not switched to EPS as expected. Researchers have investigated this issue over the past and they have identified that there are a variety of factors hindering the usage of EPS by customers. Literature review reveals that there are contradictory findings between researchers on this matter and hence it is evident that there is no agreement among the researchers as to which factors really affect the usage of EPS by customers. Therefore, this study aimed at identifying critical factors affecting the customer perception towards the use of EPS. Through a thorough literature review, the researchers could identify five antecedents which have been cited by many researchers as important factors determining the usage of EPS.

Abstract: The food and feeding habits of fish community of Qua Iboe River in Akwa Ibom State, Nigeria was studied for eight mouths (January-August, 2009). The total number of fish examined was two hundred and twenty-one (221) out of which one hundred and seventy-seven (80.1%) had food while forty-four (19.9%) specimens were empty stomach. A total of 51 (23.1%) individuals had full stomachs while 72 (32.6%), 33 (14.9%) and 21 (9.5%) were ¾, ½ and ¼ full respectively. The data shows that, the food items consumed by these fish species covered a wide feeding range. Analysis of the stomach contents reveal algae, macrophytes (plants), shrimps, insects, fish, fish parts, sand, mud, unidentified plant matter, unidentified animal matter, nematodes and worms as the main food categories selectively eaten by fishes of Qua Iboe River. These fishes exhibited benthopelogic exploitation and grazing tendency.

ORBITAL CAVERNOUS HAEMANGIOMA: Transnasal Endoscopic Surgical Management - A case report
Dr. Mohammad Idrish Ali, Prof. Sheikh Hasanur Rahman, Prof. Kamrul Hassan Tarafder, Dr. Mohammad Rokon Uddin Bhuiyan

Abstract: Cavernous haemangiomas (CHs) are the most common intraorbital tumours found in adults. This tumour occurs in females more frequently than in males and its peak incidence is in early middle age3,4 and it may enlarge during pregnancy4,5. They can encroach on intraorbital or adjacent structures and be considered anatomically or positionally malignant.1,2 Most of these tumours are unilateral and can increase intraorbital volume with a resultant mass effect1. The clinical hallmark is a slowly progressive, painless proptosis, but patients may also present with loss of vision either due to optic nerve compression or hyperopic shift when the mass compresses the posterior pole. In the later case, choroidal folds may be seen on fundus examination. Most orbital cavernous haemangiomas require no intervention, but especially when vision is compromised surgery is indicated. The approach is dictated by tumour location within the orbit. The typical described approaches are lateral orbitotomy, transconjunctival and frontotemporal1,3. We present a case of an orbital CH with visual compromise and its transnasal endoscopic surgical management.

THE ROLE OF PRINCIPALS IN THE EFFECTIVE UTILIZATION OF INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS AMONG SELECTED SECONDARY SCHOOLS IN KADUNA STATE NIGERIA
Michael Olugbenga

Abstract: This study investigated the role of principals in the effective utilization of instructional materials. It also examined the relationship between schools where principal perform supervisory roles in ensuring effective utilizations of instructional materials and schools where principals lack supervision on the use of instructional materials. The survey method was used to gather information. The simple sampling was used to select subjects. The research subjects were 100 educational officers drawn from 10 public secondary schools, randomly selected from 10 local government areas of Kaduna State. Two instruments were designed by the researcher and used for this study. The reliability of the instruments was done using the split- half method; this is a method of estimating the reliability of test scores by the means of single form of a test. Data were analyzed using simple percentage. The analysis revealed that the principals busy schedule, lack of fund, lack of maintenance culture, lack of storage facilities were some of the factors that interfered with the role of principals in ensuring effective utilization of instructional materials. From the 2 hypotheses tested, the result showed that there was significant difference between principals who perform supervisory roles and the ones that don’t. It also revealed from the three research questions that principals who delegate authority, encourage teachers on improvisation, frequent in classroom visitation allows for effective utilization of instructional materials than principal that don’t. Therefore, it is imperative that all principals need to regularly monitor the activities of teachers, regularly organize staff development programmes and principals should delegate authority due to busy schedule. Recommendation and classroom implication were subsequently drawn for effective utilization of instructional materials.

Ezugwu MU, Obidiegwu MU, Ezugwu CH, Ipav SS, Dasofunjo K and Berinyuy E.B

Abstract: Alkyd resin was synthesized from the Albizia lebbeck (frywood) seed oil (FWO) and the physico-chemical properties of both the oil and the consequent alkyd resin were studied. Fourier Transform Infra-red (FTIR) spectroscopy was used to investigate the functional groups present in the alkyd resin. MATLAB was used to generate model equations for the extent of reaction for the synthesis of the alkyd resin. The oil extracted from the plant’s seeds has a percentage yield of 17.32%w/w, exhibited yellow colour and was liquid at room temperature. Other physico-chemical properties of the oil such as density, specific gravity (30ºC), refractive index (30ºC), viscosity (30ºC), saponification value, iodine value, acid value, free fatty acids and peroxide value were determined to be 0.89g/cm3, 0.84, 1.48, 27.064m2/S, 207.22mgKOH/g, 122.18gI2/100g, 8.98 mgKOH/g, 4.52% and 10.00mEq/kg respectively. The synthesized alkyd resin from frywood seed oil (FWOAR) was dark-brown in colour while that of the commercially prepared alkyd resin (CPAR) was colourless.
