: 10.9790/0837-2202010512      logo

Abstract: Reflecting on the seminal theme of Biography as a provisional means of accessing artistic substance, this study dares a reading of the metamorphosis of the artistry of the Dakorois artists Victor Ehikhamenor and Youseff Limoud. Utilising an empirical analysis, principal art works of these masters are examined. However, a hermeneutic investigation is engaged to aid an unraveling of the tooling mechanisms and the art making traditions that the artists deployed in their engagement with the natural synthesis cognomen in affecting the postmodernist paradigm. The works of Victor Ehikhamenor are discussed with a hermeneutic detailing that draws attention to the peculiarities of his artistry as emblematic in the growth and development of the ethos of the reincarnation of the past in postmodernist creativity enabled by the break from the Negritude ethos of the 1960s.

Abstract: Customers judge a product by its package before buying. It is logical to say that attractive packaging is crucial to get the first time buyers to buy (Soroka, 2002 and Diana 2005). Packaging and repackaging of products help to eliminate adulteration of products from the market. This study critically evaluated the impact of repackaging on the market share volume of beverage companies in Nigeria. The hypothesis of the study was stated in null form that re-packaging activities do not have significant impact on market share expansion of companies. The study sample consisted of Cadbury Nigeria Plc and Nestle Nigeria Plc which are the two major contending firms that trade on the floor of the Nigeria stock exchange market............

Title : Deconstructing Neo-Functionalism In The Quest For a Paradigm Shift In african Integration: Post-Neo-Functionalism and The Prognostication of The Proposed Continental Free Trade area In africa
Country : Nigeria
Authors : Jude C. Okafor, Ph.D || BL Ernest Toochi Aniche, Ph.D

Abstract: Historically, integration in Africa preceded European colonialism and as well predated European integration. But in the scramble for Africa, the continent was partitioned into specific spheres of influence in the Berlin Conference (1884-1885) among the various European powers. This partitioning has continued to haunt Africa many years after colonialism, reinforcing the fragmentation of African economies. The shadow of the Conference is still with us such that after over a century of pan-Africanism and five decades of modern integration in Africa, African economies remain decimated. Yet all the hitherto existing theories of integration such as functionalism, neo-functionalism.............

Abstract: Since the Nuremberg trials of the 1940s, there has been an expansion of the list of crimes recognized under international law.1While crimes such as genocide and the crime against humanity were provided for under international Charters, most of their contextualisation came through various court interpretation of international customary law.2 What became obvious and somewhat complex to most scholars and commentators is the overlap between crimes against humanity and those considered as genocide.

Thus, this research examines the concept of marriage dissolution according to Shariah and analyses its implementation in Patani Province, Southern Thailand. The research methodology is analysis of Thai laws and Shariah relating to marriage dissolution.

Title : New Testament Words and Quotations in the Book of Mormon
Country : United States
Authors : Terrence L. Chambers, Ph.D.
: 10.9790/0837-220201120147      logo

Abstract: This paper identifies 441 phrases that are seven words long or longer, that are common to the Book of Mormon and the New Testament, but that are not found in the Old Testament. These phrases are proposed as candidate quotations of the New Testament by the Book of Mormon. This is important because the presence of any New Testament material in the Book of Mormon would seem to be inherently anachronistic and therefore potentially problematic for those who accept the Book of Mormon as a religious text. This study defines three categories of New Testament quotations in the Book of Mormon............
