Impact of Coal Mining on Environment

European Researcher, 2015, Vol.(92), Is. 3, pp. 185-196.
DOI: 10.13187/er.2015.92.185CrossRef

Coal mining adversely affects the eco-system as a whole. On the unstable earth, the unresting mankind constantly uses a variety of resources for daily lives. Coal is recognized to have been the main source of energy in India for many decades and contributes to nearly 27 % of the world’s commercial energy requirement. Coal is mainly mined using two methods- surface or ‘opencast’ and underground mining. The geological condition determines the method of mining. Coal mining is usually associated with the degradation of natural resources and the destruction of habitat. This causes invasive species to occupy the area, thus posing a threat to biodiversity. Huge quantities of waste material are produced by several mining activities in the coal mining region. If proper care is not taken for waste disposal, mining will degrade the surrounding environment. The method of waste disposal affects land, water and air and in turns the quality of life of the people in the adjacent areas. This paper throws lights on the burning issues of coal mines and its impact on the environment.

DOI: 10.13187/er.2015.92.214CrossRef

This article addresses issues in organizing independent student work. The author defines the term “independence”, discusses the concepts of independent learner work and independent learner work under the guidance of an instructor, proposes a classification of assignments to be done independently, and provides methodological recommendations as to the organization of independent student work. The article discusses the need for turning the student from a passive consumer of knowledge into an active creator of it, capable of formulating a problem, analyzing the ways of solving it, coming up with an optimum outcome, and proving its correctness. The preparation of highly qualified human resources is the primary condition for boosting Kazakhstan’s competitiveness. Independent student work is a means of fostering the professional competence of future specialists. The primary form of self-education is independent work.

The Ministry of Christ Embassy, Lagos. Nigeria

European Researcher, 2015, Vol.(92), Is. 3, pp. 230-236.
DOI: 10.13187/er.2015.92.230CrossRef

The ministry of Christ Embassy is one of the fastest growing indigenous churches in Nigeria. The Church is quite attractive to the youths and has grown in bounds all over the country, especially in the Southern part of Nigeria. On the strength of its wide spread coverage, and the age group that the church attracts, the writer is of the opinion that highlighting her activities would be of benefit to church historians and others in church ministry. The writer employed both historical and sociological methodology in his article. It is recommended that the founder of the church should make attempt to translate his sermons and other materials to main languages in Nigeria. The advantage is that the church would be able to reach out to several others. In addition, there is the need for openness especially in the area of financial management in the church. The financial aspect is said to be locked-in between the leadership. It is noted by the writer that such transparency would build greater confidence in others who may desire to join the church in future.

Heuristic Paradoxes of S.P. Kapitza Theoretical Demography

European Researcher, 2015, Vol.(92), Is. 3, pp. 237-248.
DOI: 10.13187/er.2015.92.237CrossRef

S.P. Kapitza achievements in theoretical demography are analysed, especially his idea of global demographic transition as final superfast hyperbolic growth of the world population. Heuristic paradoxes of Kapitza theoretical constructions are discussed and variants of possible solutions are considered. Surviving rural population of predominantly poor countries and urban population of predominantly developed countries are proposed as initial and final phases of the demographic phase transition respectively. Territorial units with a characteristic radius of the circle equal area of 20-30 km are considered as local populations which are actual subjects of hyperbolic growth of humanity. Worldwide depopulation which begins immediately upon completion of the demographic transition is suggested as a working hypothesis.
