Bacillus thuringiensis EC1, isolated from the fermented oil bean seed, Pentachletra macrophila Benthan, produced a methionine yield of 1.89 mg/ml. The influence of cultural conditions on methionine accumulation by B. thuringiensis EC1 showed that a 20% medium/fermenter volume ratio and a 5% inoculum size increased methionine yield. The carbon of choice was maltose and at 8% level stimulated methionine production. Among the nitrogen sources studied, ammonium sulphate was found to be the best and at 1% concentration produced a methionine yield of 2.56 mg/ml. All growth-promoting substances and their mixtures enhanced methionine accumulation by B. thuringiensis EC1. The effect of Vitamins on methionine production showed that riboflavin and thiamine HCl at 1.0 μg/ml yielded 2.49 mg/ml and 2.80 mg/ml methionine respectively. The influence of bivalent metals on methionine accumulation indicated that Zn2+ at all concentration stimulated methionine production. Mg2+ and Ba2+ at 0.1 μg/ml and 10.0 μg/ml respectively improved methionine yield. Optimizing the cultural conditions of B. thuringiensis EC1 in submerged medium gave a methionine yield of 3.18 mg/ml.

The nature of production and distribution in post- colonial Nigeria have given rise to severe inter and intra eth no-regional conflicts in Nigeria.Since the end of cold war, conflict between the oil producing communities and petro-dollar businesses became intensive such that Nigerian state is listed among the most unsafe environment for business in Africa as the Niger Delta region metamorphosized into a deadly war zone.
Key Differences between Journal and Ledger The difference between journal and ledger can be drawn clearly on the following grounds: 1. The Journal is a book where all the financial transactions are recorded for the first time. When the transactions are entered in the journal, then they are posted into individual accounts known as Ledger. 2. The Journal is a subsidiary book, whereas Ledger is a principal book. 3. The Journal is known as the book of original entry, but Ledger is a book of second entry. 4. In journal, transactions are recorded in chronological order, whereas in ledger, transactions are recorded in analytical order. Journal is a book of prime entry; that is, whenever a transaction occurs it must be recorded soon after in the journal. The entry made is known as a journal entry. The process of recording in the journal is called journalizing. The journal entry says that what account to be debited and what account to be credited, also it contains a narration that says for what reason the corresponding entry has been made. Some main types of journals are general journal, purchase journal, sales journal, etc. A transaction must be recorded in the general journal, or one of the other special journals. Journal contains data in the historical order of occurrence. While ledger can be defined as an accounting book of final entry where transactions are listed in separate accounts. Ledger contains many accounts (normally known as T- accounts). The transactions, which are recorded in the journals, are grouped accordingly and transformed to the corresponding correct accounts in the ledger. This process of recording data is known as posting. Financial statements (also known as final accounts) like statement of comprehensive income (income statement), statement of financial position (balance sheet) are often derived from ledger; ledger accounts can be checked for the accuracy.
women have not been given the adequate respect they deserve. Sophocles once said that “silence gives the proper grace to women.” Men were often perceived as the dominant sex; women were just asked to perform in the kitchen, and please their spouse. According to feminist criticism, the root of the prejudice against women have long been embedded in western culture. The female feminist Virginia Woolf wrote “A room of one’s own,” in which she declares that men have treated women as inferiors. She states that society believes that women are inferior to men; men controls the income, while women just seat at home and this is exactly the case in The Lion and the Jewel and The Trials of Brother Jero.
