I doubt the authenticity of this ranking especially with the schools am seeing. There are some schools that rarely publish paper but they are ranked high

That is why its called proposed ranking system, what i want you to look at is the criteria description and its assigned weight. you can download the full paper https://drive.google.com/file/d/1rt4mWHQkgv4acoT6SXUC5dqEqawOTfBE/view?usp=sharing

I am proposing this ranking system to be the yardstick or benchmark for ranking universities in Nigeria because we don't have one yet, we depend on foreign ranking bodies for position of our universities in the league table like Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU), Webometric Ranking of World Universities (WRWU) and QS World University Ranking etc.

Education / Ranking Of Universities In Nigeria From Our Proposed Ranking System (2020) by gabonsky: 4:41pm On Mar 06
This Proposed Ranking System was developed for the purpose of ranking all tertiary institutions in developing nation (A Case study of Nigeria Universities). Nine existing ranking systems were considered in this study and aggregated to form a unified system. Twenty-two criteria were identified as a result of the aggregation but only seventeen criteria are used and percentage weights were also assigned objectively to each. Web crawling algorithm was employed to extract the value of each criteria that are available on the university website while other criteria that are not available are sourced from the National Universities Commission official website http://www.nuc.edu.ng (Nigeria Statistical Digest Report, 2018) are manually input into the proposed ranking systems. System implementation was carried out in PHP and Python. The best five universities from the proposed ranking system are University of Ibadan, Obafemi Awolowo University, University of Lagos, University of Benin and University of Ilorin. The proposed ranking system will give a better and reliable ranking result for universities in developing nations than other existing ranking systems because it contained more robust parameters. Hence, it is recommended as a tool for ranking of tertiary institutions in developing nations.

Criteria Criteria Description Weight (%)

Travel / Re: Is There An Order From US Authorities To Deny Nigerians Visas? by gabonsky: 2:22pm On Aug 04, 2018
Beautyaddy:


Huh, I will have to disagree with some of that highlighted statement.

Even though I know this issue about US visa holders flocking illegally across the US-Canadian borders was very high since Trump came into office but the fault wasn't because the US visa officers weren't doing their job...it was because the Canada was very weak and still very weak as we speak with their asylum approval requirements.
i totally disagree with your assumption that the US Visa officer are weak and they are not doing their jobs, these guys are expert in this field and most time, they used fuzzy logic in interviewing you and making their decision if to issue you the visa or not. the truth is that your friend is not qualified for the visa at the moment, he can reapply if his conditions have change and can also prove to the visa officer that his intention is for study purpose only and he will return back to his home country.
Sports / Is The World Cup Legacy Worth It? by gabonsky: 5:35pm On Jun 22, 2018
In order to host a World Cup, countries have to go through an arduous bidding process, competing against other nations for the prize of hosting the biggest sporting spectacle on Earth. However, more is promised than just a month long festival of football. When any major sporting event takes place, a lot is said about the legacy that it will leave behind once all the spectators have went home. This is especially true for the World Cup. The hosting nation often builds new stadiums, infrastructure and accommodation. In return for this, an economic stimulus is promised.


A World Cup is meant to leave permanent benefits for the host nation, in terms of job creation, increased participation in football and public facilities. But does this happen? We’ve analysed some of the key outcomes of the previous four World Cups to find out.


During the 2002 World Cup, co-hosted by South Korea and Japan, South Korea’s national side miraculously made it the the Semi Final’s, narrowly losing 1-0 to a 75th minute Michael Ballack strike. The event was hailed as a success for its seamlessly smooth operations and excellent football, but what effect did this have on both of the host countries? Tourism to Japan increased after the tournament. The Japanese public opinion of South Korea reached an all time high, helping to heal long standing issues between both countries, stemming from WW2. Although football is popular in Japan today, baseball remains the nations favourite pastime. The tournament reportedly cost a combined total of $7.5b to host, with an estimated economic impact of $11.86bn, making the tournament a financial success. This was the first time the World Cup was hosted across two countries.


The 2006 World Cup in Germany was widely praised as a tremendous success for the nation. According to the German government, tourism revenue increased by around $400m during the tournament, helping to boost the Germany economy. Also, a staggering 500,000 new jobs were created in the lead up to the tournament. The city of Cologne reported that their visitor numbers after the World Cup increased by between 7& and 10%. Another tangible benefit was that in preparation for the tournament, the German government invested the sum of €37b in infrastructure such as roads, transportation and facilities, so that the country could facilitate the surge in visitors. This is something that the German people still benefit from today. The German League also benefited by being awarded $70m, which was in turn put into grassroots development, so that young Germans could dream about playing in a World Cup one day themselves.


South Africa spend around $4bn on the 2010 World Cup, investing the money in six new state of the art stadiums and upgrading infrastructure such as roads and airports. FIFA generated a staggering $3.36bn from the event and awarded South Africa with $100m to fund grassroots projects around the country. Unfortunately, the South Africa World Cup has done nothing to improve the fortunes of the nations national team. Nicknamed Bafana Bafana, the team failed to qualify for Russia 2018, finishing bottom of their qualifying group with 4 points from 6 games. The national league still suffers from poor attendances, excluding the countries two major teams, Orlando Pirates and the Kaiser Chiefs. The estimated average cost of a tourist attending South Africa for the World Cup is estimated to be $13,000. The Cape Town stadium hosted five first round matches, and went on to host a second round, quarter final and semi final throughout the tournament. The stadium cost a reported $600m with the nations total spending for stadium construction and reburbishment topping $1.4bn. This left many South African’s wondering if they money could be better spent elsewhere in the country.


Widely criticised for leaving Brazil with several expensive but dormant stadiums, the 2014 World Cup is one that divides opinion. Brazil exited the tournament in a humiliating 7-1 defeat to Germany in the Semi Final, leaving the Selecao’s dream of winning the World Cup on home soil in tatters. Despite initial concerns, the 12 World Cup stadiums were ready on time for the opening ceremony to begin. However, now lies several near-abandoned stadiums which struggle to host any football at all. The most expensive stadium, adding up to a total cost of $550m, is located in Brasilia and is being used as a parking space for buses.

Science/Technology / Five Interesting Technology Trends For 2018 by gabonsky: 12:24pm On Jan 13, 2018
This file photo taken on March 20, 2017 shows a robot interacting with visitors at the Soft Bank robotics stand at the Cebit technology fair in Hanover, Germany. Technology has long impacted the labor force, but recent advances in artificial intelligence and robotics have heightened concerns on automation replacing a growing number of occupations including highly skilled or “knowledge-based” jobs.


It does not really count if you are a tech enthusiast or an ordinary consumer, you will always look forward to the tech developments especially the tech trends that will make a difference in the future or New Year. Jumia Travel, the leading online travel agency, highlights 5 technology set to define 2018.


Artificial Intelligence
Artificial intelligence (AI) will be bigger this year. More and more organisations will embrace AI which is made possible through machine learning algorithms and will be incorporated in uncountable applications.


5 Generation Technology
This year, developers and engineers are getting ready to make a new generation of internet possible. By the end of 2019, 5G networks and phones with 5G will be available. 5G internet has the potential to be almost 10 times faster than 4G, making it even better than most home internet services.


Data overload
In 2018, data collection is going to become an even higher priority as companies have seen the advantage of collecting consumer data. With consumers talking to smart speakers throughout their day and relying on digital devices for most of their daily tasks, companies will soon have access to big amounts of personal data.


Automation
Automation is inescapable as robots are becoming more effective in performing jobs. AI has become advanced enough to replace at least some white collar jobs for years. 2018 may be the year that we see more sweeping job transformations and companies making big technology changes by automating functions.


IoT becomes Blockchain IoT
The Internet of things (IoT), which involves adding smart sensors to connected devices so that users can do things like asking Amazon’s Alexa digital assistant to turn off the lights or order a pizza. Combining IoT with blockchain —or BIoT—brings in a whole host of new services and businesses. For example, BIoT can be used to track shipments of pharmaceuticals and to create smart cities in which connected heating systems better controls energy use and connected traffic lights better manage rush hour.

Romance / 6 Things You Should Always Do After Sex by gabonsky: 7:36pm On Jan 05, 2018
So you've done the deed and are preparing to fall into a deep sleep between your partner's arms and the mountain of pillows on your bed.


Not so fast! For personal and sexual hygiene reasons, there's a multitude of things you should be doing after sex. Why, you ask?


Because sex can introduce a host of new bacteria to your nether regions — and it's hard for your vagina to fend them off all by herself.


Check yourself against this list to see if you're keeping your vagina happy.


Pee.
Use the restroom after sex! It helps to rinse E. coli bacteria that may have moved toward your urethra during sex. If you have to go immediately after sex, go for it. Otherwise, don't force it; wait until it comes naturally, even if that means waiting an hour after sex.



Wipe with soap and water.
Dab a wet washcloth with non-scented soap and lightly wipe down your lady parts, moving from front to back. You could also just use warm water if you're not comfortable using soap.


"Sexual lubricants and bacteria from the fingers, mouth, and rectum can increase your chance of developing a yeast or bacterial infection," Santa Monica-based ob-gyn Sherry Ross told Women's Health.


Reminder: Soap is for external cleaning only! It's true what they say about your vagina being like a self-cleaning oven.



Take a bath.
Not only will you feel like a queen while relaxing in a bubble bath, you're also giving your lady parts a chance to recoop.


Squirt a little extra virgin coconut oil into the water to help hydrate the skin of the outer vagina and sooth any vaginal swelling or irritation. You're getting a chance to relax and reducing your risk of infection at the same time!


Drink some water.
Sex is more similar to hitting the gym than you might think! Not only are you getting your heart rate up and burning calories, but you're also going to need to replenish your fluids afterward.


Chug a pint or two of good old-fashioned H2O to hydrate and flush out UTI-causing bacteria from your bladder.



Fuel up on probiotics.
Foods rich in probiotics, aka the "good" bacteria that helps keep things balanced in your gut and lady parts, can decrease your risk of a yeast infection. Fermented foods like yogurt, kimchi and kombucha can help replenish the bacteria found in your vagina.



Go commando.
After sex, you want to let your vagina breathe. Don't suffocate her with nylon undies or tight-fitting PJs! Clothes like those trap moisture and allow bacteria to grow where you least want it.


Instead, go commando for the night. If you're uncomfortable with that, opt for cotton or loose-fitting PJs instead.

Crime / Louisiana Man Charged In ‘nigerian Prince’ Scheme by gabonsky: 12:36pm On Jan 01, 2018
Michael Neu of Slidell, La., was arrested on charges of wire fraud and money laundering in connection with a “Nigerian prince” scheme.


The “Nigerian prince” letter, one of the better-known frauds, is often perpetrated by mysterious figures. But the police in Louisiana say they’ve put a face and a name to a man and charged him with more than 200 counts related to the scheme.


The man, identified as Michael Neu, 67, of Slidell, La., is suspected of being the middle man in hundreds of financial transactions designed to con money from victims across the United States by phone and online, with some of that money wired to co-conspirators in Nigeria, Detective Daniel Seuzeneau of the Slidell Police Department said in a statement.


The 18-month investigation is continuing but is “extremely difficult as many leads have led to individuals who live outside of the United States,” the statement said.


Mr. Neu, who was charged with 269 counts of wire fraud and money laundering, was being held on Sunday at St. Tammany Parish Jail in Covington, La. It was unclear whether he had a lawyer.
The police did not say how many people Mr. Neu was accused of swindling. A police spokesman did not respond to messages on Sunday.


In one version of the Nigeria scheme, which often begins with a letter sent via email, the author claims to be a government official who wants to share a percentage of millions of dollars being transferred illegally out of Nigeria.

Victims are often asked to provide bank names and account numbers and other identifying information. They are also asked to send money. The author of the letter then falsely vows to reimburse all expenses as soon as the victim’s funds leave Nigeria. Of course, the promised money does not exist.


In other cases, the letter-writer will claim that the recipient is named as a beneficiary in a will, and asks for personal information in order to send over an inheritance.


The Nigeria scheme predates email.
As early as 1989, business executives in Britain received word via Telex that in exchange for some cash a tanker of Nigerian crude oil “could have its cargo claimed for bargain prices,” The New York Times reported in 2014. The fraud went global when oil prices crashed in the 1980s along with Nigeria’s national economy.


If you receive a letter or email from Nigeria asking for personal or banking information, the F.B.I. recommends sending it to the Secret Service, your local F.B.I. office or the Postal Inspection Service. You may also use the Federal Trade Commission’s Complaint Assistant or the F.B.I.’s Internet Crime Complaint Center.


While such schemes might be dismissed as laughable, the public loses millions of dollars each year through such frauds, the police said in the statement.


“If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is,” Chief Randy Fandal of the Slidell Police Department said in the statement. “Never give out personal information over the phone, through email, cash checks for other individuals or wire large amounts of money to someone you don’t know. 99.9 percent of the time, it’s a scam.
