Comparison of physiological characteristics of male racket game players in University of Ilorin
(Department of Human Kinetics and Health Education, Faculty of Education, Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba-Akoko, Ondo State, Nigeria, 2019) Adebayo, Babatunde Samson
Physiological characteristics are are those variables that are directly linked with functioning of various organs and systems such as heart rate, maximum oxygen uptake, blood pressure, vital capacity, stroke volume and lung capacity. This study focused on comparison of physiological characteristics of male racket game players in University of Ilorin. The variables investigated were; heart rate, maximum oxygen uptake (v02max)and blood pressure. Ex-post facto research design was adopted for this study. The population comprised male racket game players in university of Ilorin. Stratified sampling technique was adopted to select 18 athletes for the study. The measurements were taken using digital sphygmomanometer for blood pressure and heartrate and 12-minutes Cooper test for v02max. Data collection was conducted by the researchers and two research assistants. Mean and standard deviation was used for the demographic data of the respondents, the tree null hypotheses were tested using one way analysis of variance at 0.05 alpha level. The findings revealed that there were significant differences in the heart rate and v02max of the participants, while there was no significant difference in the systolic and diastolic blood pressure. Based on the findings, the study recommended that racket sports coaches should pay more attention to developing specific fitness fitness programmes into their training schedule so as to improve athletes' physiological characteristics to attain peak performance. The study further recommends that players should maintain their systolic blood pressure within the range of 106-120 and 70-80diastolic blood pressure to maintain optimal performance.

(2020-02) OLADIMEJI, Ibrahim; Otuoze, Abdulrahaman Okino; Akorede, Mudathir Funsho; ABDULKARIM, Abubakr 3.A.I ABDULLATEEF, 4.Olalekan OGUNBIYI; Abdullateef, Ayodele Isqeel; Ogunbiyi, Olalekan
Failure to properly define operating hazards associated with pneumatic conveying system for combustible powder transportation has led to several incidences of fires and explosions. These hazards are mostly preventable if adequate safety measures are provided for the pneumatic conveying systems for dust and combustible materials during the system design, installation and operating stages. This paper presents assessment on risk of fire and explosive hazards associated with pneumatic conveying system for a combustible powder transportation and prescribe the best practice to prevent possible accident that might result from improper practice. The safety practice and relevant regulations for zoning of the operating area and guide for proper selection of suitable class of measuring instrumentation for safe system operation are enumerated.
