Statistical analysis of crime rate and prison population in Nigeria

Article in Press

Human beings and the society are vulnerable to criminality and so criminality can be likened to an oil that is able to stain a white garment when it comes in touch with the white garment. That is why it's far impossible for any society to claim to be absolutely loose from crime. The styles of crook behavior depend on the social and monetary development of a given society. As an end result, it is now not unexpected that a...

Two values of the Constant G obtained from Inclining-Pull Projection Method

Article in Press

The Newtonian gravitational constant is regarded as the most fundamental constant. So far, more than 200 experiments have been done to measure its true value. But large discrepancies in those results appeared. Owing to the weakness of the gravitational interaction and the impossibility of shielding its effects, it is very difficult to find new method to measure G. Thus, most previous experiments were based on the torsion...
