Dietary mineral supplies in Africa - Joy &al (2014) - Physiologia Plantarum

Dietary mineral supplies in Africa - Joy &al (2014) - Physiologia Plantarum | education | Scoop.it

Dietary micronutrient deficiencies (MNDs) are widespread yet their prevalence can be difficult to assess. Here, we estimate MND risks due to inadequate intakes for seven minerals in Africa using food supply and composition data, and consider the potential of food-based and agricultural interventions.

 

Food Balance Sheets (FBSs) for 46 countries were integrated with food composition data to estimate per capita supply of calcium (Ca), copper (Cu), iron (Fe), iodine (I), magnesium (Mg), selenium (Se) and zinc (Zn), and also phytate. Deficiency risks were quantified using an Estimated Average Requirement (EAR) ‘cut-point’ approach.

 

Deficiency risks are greatest for Ca (54% of the population), followed by Zn (40%), Se (28%) and I (19%, after accounting for iodized salt consumption). The risk of Cu (1%) and Mg (<1%) deficiency are low. Deficiency risks are generally lower in the north and west of Africa. Multiple MND risks are high in many countries... Deficiency risks for Fe are lower than expected (5%). However, ‘cut point’ approaches for Fe are sensitive to assumptions regarding requirements...

 

Fertilization and breeding strategies could greatly reduce certain MNDs. For example, meeting HarvestPlus breeding targets for Zn would reduce dietary Zn deficiency risk by 90% based on supply data. Dietary diversification or direct fortification is likely to be needed to address Ca deficiency risks.

Why Apple's A7 chip will really shine in the iPad Air | education | Scoop.it

The new A7 processor in Apple's latest tablets and phones will help that even more. At first glance, this is nothing new. Every processor generation ends up being faster and more energy efficient in some way or another, so it's rare that a new CPU itself ends up being news outside of hardcore PC enthusiast circles.

Where education technology will — and won’t — take us by 2024

Where education technology will — and won’t — take us by 2024 | education | Scoop.it

Professor Larry Cuban:

 

With all of the above occurring, one would think that by 2024, age-graded schools and the familiar teaching and learning that occurs today in K-12 and universities  would have exited the rear door.

I do not think so. Getting access to powerful electronic devices for all students and teachers is surely a victory for those who believe in better technologies solving teaching and learning problems. But access does not guarantee use, especially the kind of use that vendors and ardent technophiles seek.

Tech in education - enhancement not destruction, just my not-so-humble opinion.

Aunty Alice's curator insight, December 26, 2013 1:34 PM

Better technology to solve learning and teaching problems is a great thought but should not be seen as the bottom line. Identifying the problems accurately so they can be focussed  on with purpose, practicing to put into the long term memory, motivating  and rewarding the student...have to be in the  mix too, not to mention self discipline and good mental and physical health. 

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, December 26, 2013 2:58 PM

"None of these incremental changes herald the disappearance of K-12 age-graded public schools or the dominant patterns of teacher-centered instruction. What these gradual changes will translate into is an array of options for teaching and learning available to both teachers and students."

 

This is particularly disconcerting. Without a shift away from the way we have always done things, will education really meet the demands of th 21st Century?
