ABSTRACT The result of the work showed a rapid growth in built-up land occupying 182.2km2 (70.0%) and cultivation occupying 7.4km2 (2.9%) in 2017 in the study area. While, in1985 witnessed a reduction in these classes having 83.4km2 (32.0%) and 3.7km2 (1.4%) respectively. In 1985, Vegetation occupied 169.9km2 (65.3%) and experienced a reduction in 2017 to 67.4km2 (25.9%) while water body remained 3.3km2(1.3%) with little or no notable changes between the referenced years. It was also observed that the changes that occurred in the sampling points at the referenced years replicated itself in other parts of the study area, hence, the recommendation to raise awareness among relevant stakeholders about the importance of protecting vegetative landcover as well as the adverse effects and consequences associated with deforestation, overgrazing and improper agriculture activities on vegetation.
ABSTRACT The aim of this study is to investigate a possible relationship between the full moon/lunar cycle and acute irreversible pulpitis emergencies. Acute pulpitis patients treated at the Department of Endodontics over a 3-year period were reviewed. Each lunar phase (new moon, first quarter, full moon, and last quarter) was considered a 1-day period, and the number of acute pulpitis emergencies per lunar day was calculated. Of 8533 referrals, 688 were recorded on 105 lunar-phase days. There was no significant difference in the number of acute pulpitis cases among phases of the Moon; however, on average, there were 15% more acute pulpitis cases at full moon (P =1.09, χ2=6.06). The effect of the Moon on acute pulpitis remains unconfirmed.
