From making connections through worldwide connectivity, from online businesses to digital marketing, from creating brand loyalty to awareness, social media has tremendously affected our lives. We feel blessed to have social media in our lives. But it is a fact too that for millions of years, our forefathers formed important social links and shared information through them. So at the most basic level, social media is not changing humankind so much as tapping into what we have always been. Online social networks are a new way to do an old thing. In different places in different times horses, ships, trains, and planes delivered the information to maintain and build connectivity. Then came era of Telegram, Radio, Telephone and Telecommunication satellites to quicken the pace of communication. We always have been linked to others. What is different about the present scenario of social media is that now we have the ability to connect to vastly more people over greater distance than ever before more immediately and more instantaneously. Whether this will enhance or debase our humanity in the long run is an open question. Nobody can deny the fact that using social media excessively can cause disastrous issues, which can have adverse impact on our lives.</p> Madhu Bala Amit Kumar Copyright (c) 2022 2022-05-04 2022-05-04 9 5 8 14 Conservation of Biological Diversity in India: Role of Judiciary <p><em>Environment Protection and Conservation of Biological Diversity has become not only a matter of national importance but of global concern too.. It is now a well recognized fact that without a clean environment the very continuance of humankind is in peril. Diminishing environmental quality has been shown by surging pollution levels, loss of vegetative cover and Biological Diversity, imprudent concentration of hazardous chemicals in the visible atmosphere and food chains, increasing perils of environmental mishaps and warnings to associated life and life support systems. This has brought the curiosity of entire global community which forced them to preserve, safeguard and intensify their efforts in boosting the environmental quality. Judiciary is only an alarm bell and not a timekeeper. So how could the judiciary remain a mute onlooker when the matter has gained such a high relevance and become a subject of circumspection and judicial cognizance. </em></p> Prof.(Dr.) Sudhir Kumar Indra Kumar Singh Copyright (c) 2022 2022-05-03 2022-05-03 9 5 15 24 E-Commerce in India: Growth and Trends <p>E-commerce one of the highest growing business, with India having great market potential for investments.&nbsp; There has been huge surge in investment since last year and more is accepted in coming years. The rapid growth of mobile and internet users has facilitated e-commerce business in both urban and rural cities. With an online population of 500 million in 2017, India has one of the fastest growing internet populations in the world. A compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 13 percent will take the number of online users to 720 million, close to where China is currently. The CAGR of the Indian online user growth is nearly four times that of global rate. The Indian e-commerce has seen a steady growth over the years from 2014 and is currently pegged at $53 billion. With a growth of 25 percent , the Indian e-commerce industry is expected to cross the $100 billion mark by 2020 .India has an internet users base of about 475 million as of July 2018, about 40% of the population. Despite being the second largest user base in world, only behind China (650million, 48% of population), the penetration of ecommerce is low compared to markets like the United states (266 million, 84%), or France (54 M, 81%), but is growing at an unprecedented rate , adding around 6 million new entrants every month. The industry consensus is that growth is at an inflection point. In India, cash on delivery is the most preferred payment method, accumulating 75% of the e-retail activities. Demand for international consumer products is growing much faster than in-country supply from authorised distributors and e-commerce offerings. The present study makes use of secondary data. The methodology used is collection of data from various journals, published books, and research studies, research articles, magazines and newspapers along with internet.</p> <p>Finally, it has been concluded that ecommerce will result in high economic development and there will be an emergence of a more innovative and advanced technology.&nbsp;</p> Dr. Sindhuja Gupta Copyright (c) 2022 2022-05-05 2022-05-05 9 5 25 42 TOXIC IMPACT OF PLASTIC WASTES ON MARINE LIFE OF WOJI AND NEW CALABAR RIVERS <p><em>Plastics are one of the most, widely, used materials in the world that, are broadly integrated into the daily lifestyle of people since they are used in almost all product areas. This study examined the resistivity and impact assessment of plastic wastes in Woji and New Calabar River. The objectives were to determine the physico-chemical properties of plastics; physico-chemical properties of water; toxic impact of plastic wastes on the aquatic life and assess the resistivity of different plastic wastes along the Woji and New Calabar Rivers. Standard Analytical Methods were used. Findings showed that the major type of plastic found in the study area (New Calabar and Woji Rivers) were Plastic bags; there is significant difference in the physical properties of plastics at the New Calabar and Woji River; most plastics collected from the Woji axis were combustible; No fish was found in the Woji River which was linked to the high level of industrial wastes in the River; Water quality parameters of the New Calabar River such as turbidity, conductivity, salinity, TDS, DO, BOD<sub>5</sub>, Nitrate and Phosphate varied significantly (p&lt;0.05) when compared to the water quality parameters of Woji River; major impact of plastic wastes in this study were death, perforated gut, biochemical/cellular death and increased population size; measures of stopping plastic waste disposal with respect to Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 14 includes prevention of plastic littering, improving waste collection, handling transfer stations and proper transportation, improve final disposal site, introduce plastic waste separation at source and increase plastic waste recovery and recycling. The study concludes that plastic wastes obtained from the study area are characterized by high resistivity values which is as a result of the nature of plastics found. It is therefore recommended amongst others that enforcement of actions should be in place to reduce illegal dumping and open burning of plastic waste at disposal sites.</em></p> 1Manna Emmanuel Harris Dr. Bolaji Bernard Babatunde Copyright (c) 2022 2022-05-05 2022-05-05 9 5 43 74 A Study of Problem Solving Ability Among High and Low Achiever Boys in the Subject of Mathematics <p><em>Problem solving is an individual phenomenon and involves the exercise of cognitive abilities of a high order and continuous and persistent struggling on the conscious as well unconscious levels.

But most of our history before 1500 AD is in oral traditions.&nbsp; Indians, by and large, were not good at record keeping.&nbsp; This is especially true about hard facts and data relating to various aspects of life.&nbsp; Even for the period 1500 to 1750 AD data are rudimentary.&nbsp; Regional disparities are an alarming issue in India, and it has been widening in spite of various policy initiatives by the government to develop backward areas. The fruit of high growth have not been distributed fairly across India's different regions and have given rise to the threat of regional inequality. Disparities in social and economic development, employment, and infrastructure amenities across the regions and within regions have been a major challenge to policy makers and economists. This paper is an attempt to understand the recent picture of regional imbalance in India across its states. The paper tries to analyze the existing regional disparity in India in terms of macroeconomic aggregates, social and economic infrastructure, and human development. The paper also examines the various policy initiatives taken by the government of India to achieve the regional balance in development.</em></p> Tariq Ahmad Sheikh Copyright (c) 2022 2022-05-05 2022-05-05 9 5 107 116 Identification of the Strategies for Transformation Funding and Start-Up Support for Family Farming in Delta State, Nigeria <p><em>Family farming dominates agriculture in Nigeria ensuring Food and Nutrition Security (FNS) and providing employment to millions of people. Family farms are also essential in safeguarding agro-biodiversity and sustaining communities and cultures. However, family farming faces numerous challenges that make their productivity very low. There is need to revamp family farming so that the Farmers will increase their productivity, competitiveness and contribute greatly not only to addressing FNS challenges in the country but also sustainable national economic growth. The study made use of questionnaire using the 4-point likert scaling method which were analysed using the mean and ANOVA/F-Test statistics at .05 level of significance. Among the major findings were that family farmers were facing daunting challenges which includes climate change and global warming;&nbsp; insecurity/terrorism; limited access to finance; poor marketing; processing and storage facilities etc.&nbsp; Types of start-up support and assistance needed by farmers include; better technologies for producing and distributing food; Human Capacity Development (HCD) on the Most Impactful Practice (MIP) ; know-how and where to market package and brand agro products. Several sources of funds were available to the farmers both local sources and international agencies. Major strategies for transformation of Nigerian agriculture include: climate-start/resilient agricultural practices; subsidisation of inputs; investment in technology to drive mechanization etc. The study made some recommendations to help transform Nigerian agriculture which include that government should help farmers adopt the latest technology to increase their productivity; industrialisation can make a transformational difference; youth potentials and energy should be properly harnessed among others. </em></p> Ojiako, Edith Obiageli Uzoka, Iwalewa Omikhekpe Olaroye, Ebhodaghe Roseline Copyright (c) 2022 2022-05-05 2022-05-05 9 5 117 142 Comparison of the Light Source Between the Wide and Narrow Bands of the Experimental Results of Free Optical Space <p><em>&nbsp;&nbsp; In this paper, the experimental results of free-space optical communication between broadband and narrowband light source are compared.

Finding stories about these creatures which are highly entertaining in themselves, we acquire a basic grounding in literary criticism which will enable us to read narratives about monsters with more perception and more enjoyment. The depiction of monsters and fascinating creatures in literature reveals a lot about the cultures that produce them. The fact that there were so many Classical monsters makes it clear that they filled a need for the Greeks and Romans, for example by providing a safe thrill and scare. They show us what the ancients feared and also found fascinating, what worried them, and what was felt to be good and normal.

It can be defined simply as an expansion of economic activities across political boundaries of nation states. More importantly it refers to a process of deepening economic integration, increasing economic openness and growing economic interdependence between countries in the world economy. It is associated not only with a phenomenal spread and volume of cross-border economic transactions but also with an organization of economic activities which straddle national boundaries of the world. &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <strong><em>Globalization</em></strong> has many meanings depending on the context and on the person who is talking about. The term <em>globalization</em> refers to the integration of economies of the world through uninhibited trade and financial flows, as also through mutual exchange of technology and knowledge. Ideally, it also contains free inter-country movement of labour. <em>Globalization </em>has played a major role in export- led growth, leading to the enlargement of the job market in India. Indian economy had experienced major policy changes in early 1990s. The new economic reform, popularly known as, <em>Liberalization, Privatization and Globalization (LPG model)</em> aimed at making the Indian economy as fastest growing economy and globally competitive. With the onset of reforms to liberalize the Indian economy in July of 1991, a new chapter has dawned for India and her billion plus population. This period of economic transition has had a tremendous impact on the overall economic development of almost all major sectors of the economy, and its <em>globalization</em> on India.

The poem is an important piece that evaluates the concept of time. This research will attempt to discuss the nature of time that Eliot tried to present in the poem. It seems that the poem has a direct influence of Bergson’s philosophy of time as well as Einstein’s relativity of time. The poem captures both of the influences where the nature of time is not fixed but exists in a duality where the time reference of past and future exist in the present itself. This existence is seen in the ability of the mind to go back in time to past and future references. However, the poem seems to project Einstein’s relativity of time where time is relative and all the flow of time references exist simultaneously and merely an illusion.</em></p> Monush R Marak Copyright (c) 2022 2022-05-20 2022-05-20 9 5 312 321 Developing Perfect Square Root Board Games for Teaching Square Root in Secondary Schools and Colleges <p><em>Mathematics has continued to play a significant role in the national development of any country.
