Modern Trends in Sports Administration and Management

One of the major factors militating against the development of sports in Nigeria today is lack of effective management. A lot of solutions are being proffered by concerned and patriotic Nigerians daily to bail us out the quagmire. One of such solutions is this text entitled “Modern Trends in Sports Administration and Management”. It is written by Dr. Joseph Awoyinfa, a lecturer in the Department of Human Kinetics and Health Education, Faculty of Education, University of Lagos, Nigeria; a researcher and educational consultant. I was the person invited by the author and the university to review the book when it was presented to the public on December 4, 2008 in Nigeria.

According to Awoyinfa, it is a truism all over the world that sport is now a reference issue which can no longer be ignored at various sectors of the economy and spheres of life. The author adds that this text thus takes a critical look at topical issues in sports administration and management, dwelling on theories and principles of modern trends in sports administration and management such as leadership, organisation, planning, motivation, etc.

It guides you in selecting the right windows for you, to ultimately purchasing your windows, and arranging for their installation. Included are other considerations important to your selection of the right window contractor.

Energy loss costsĀ you money!

Recently, energy costs have skyrocketed and have become a major portion of your monthly home budget. Windows and doors happen to be the greatest single source of energy loss in the home; a very high percentage of heat is lost through the windows and doors. Becoming more energy efficient and replacing old windows is an intelligent and powerful way to decrease monthly utility bills while increasing your home’s value. Replacing drafty, difficult to operate older windows with the newer thermally insulated windows, which have a Low E type glass (explained later in this report), can reduce your yearly energy bills by as much as 40%.

How to Choose Between Window Repair or Replacement and Gain the Most Efficiency

With low wintertime temperatures the cold will creep in and pool at windows in need of repair or maintenance, plus drive up wintertime electricity bills. Just like any other part of a house, windows require maintenance and repair, and sometimes replacing, if the damage is too great. Windows are the most vulnerable point in a home for heat loss in winter and heat gain in summer.

How will you know if windows just need maintenance or require replacing?

The general rule of thumb to follow for window repair versus replacement is to repair windows with spotty damage and replace with damage throughout. Take the example of a fogged window. We would repair a fogged window that has lost it’s seal.

What about newer super efficient windows – Why not just replace all of the windows at once?

It would seem like the best solution might be newer, more energy efficient windows. Advances in technology and the Low-E double pane type are much more efficient now, than they were years ago. But do they pay for themselves if replaced with more efficient models?

Relating to the Era of Information Technology

Information technology is wide spread in the developed country and is well embedded into the lifestyles education sector and work environments. The society being literate is also able to synchronize and familiarize itself with the highly dynamic pace of technological development with more and more innovations coming after regular intervals.

Latest computers, microchips and related technology is available on a large scale with state-of-the-art models available in hospitals, educational institutions, amusement parks, shopping centers, work places and even at home. There is extreme technological compliance and level of information about technology among children and toddlers.

In case of developing countries there exists a relative variation with respect to technology. Some countries are fully developed while others are semi-developed with a lot of progress going on in the technological fields.

Use of information technology is more concentrated at work places, higher education institutes like universities and in the homes of higher to higher-middle class people. Men and women are more inclined to computer use in the work environment while the children of only elite class can use it for gaming and informational purposes.

Due to less literacy level in these countries, people have less information about computers so reliance on computer expertise, relating to both software and hardware issues is increasing. Thus the computer industry has flourishing with leaps and bounds and more and more techno-solution businesses are evolving in these countries.

New Dental Implant Technologies

Conventional dental implants involve a procedure that lasts six months or more. The implant is placed, and allowed a period of six months to integrate with the bone and heal before it is crowned. Advancements in new dental implant technology have resulted in ‘immediate loading’, making teeth implants a one-day procedure.

Recent Advancements

Modern implant technologies have revolutionised the way tooth replacement is performed. Improvements in coating technology, advances in the shape and thread designs of implants and three dimensional scanning systems are some of the radical changes that are changing the way implants are done.

 

    • Improvements in Coating Technology: New methods of coating technology have made it easier for dental implants to assimilate with the jawbone, thereby enhancing their stability and durability. One of the latest developments in the field involves the coating of dental implants with a bone material that is synthetic in nature. This helps the implant to incorporate better into the jaw bone.

 

    • Three Dimensional Scanning System: A 3D dental CT scan uses Cone Beam Volumetric Technology (CBVT). It allows the scan to be performed with the patient in a sitting position, offering a clear view of where exactly the implant should be placed. The quality of the scanned image is excellent and the extent of the patient’s exposure to radiation is reduced.

 

    • Tooth Implant Shape and Thread Designs Advancements: Implant thread design has a major impact on primary implant stability. Modern dental thread implant technology offers maximum primary contact, enhanced stability, increased surface area of the implant and easy integration with the bone without any stress. This advancement in implant technology minimises bone loss.

 

  • Screwless Dental Implants: Another recent advancement is single tooth dental implantation without the use of screws. This novel technique offers a clipping mechanism to bond the abutment and the material of the crown.
