But this has not been without a concomitant increase in a worldview, which products heighten the probability of human extinction such as in wars etcetera. However, it is common knowledge that the fallibility of science, its lack of consideration of metaphysical realities, the controversy surrounding its methods and more importantly, the moral lacunae which characterize this epistemic enterprise, all refute the narrative that surround the ideology of techno-science. Yet, the rhetoric and ideologization projecting its “almighty” status as a repository of all knowledge and answers to man’s indeterminate situations and problems rage on and these smacks of a naïve and solipsistic epistemology. It is against this backdrop that this paper examines the pitfalls of the techno-scientific ideology against the Igbo notion of akonucheism. Our proposed notion recognizes the values in our culture/tradition and through its fusion with the merits of the techno-scientific endeavor, it produces relevant knowledge that is domesticated for problem solving purposes.</p> Cardinal Ihejirika Copyright (c) 2023 Fri, 08 Sep 2023 00:00:00 +0500 Blockchain in Social Media <p>Social media, such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Youtube, Whatsapp, Snapchat, etc. have changed our way of communication. They have become the center of the modern Internet. Blockchain has emerged as a viable solution for solving many issues, including social media. It is essentially a chain consisting of blocks of information. The main advantage of leveraging blockchain technology on to social media platforms is its decentralized nature. Blockchain technology offers a promising solution for a new social media architecture. The decentralized nature of blockchain allows for the creation of platforms where users control their data and have a stake in the network. This eliminates the need for a central authority or intermediary, promoting transparency and fairness. This paper provides a primer on the use of blockchain technology in social media.</p> Matthew N.

The goals of teaching a foreign language are consistent with teaching strategies and methods, understood as the use of educational material, teaching techniques and methods of interaction between participants in educational activities. In this regard, a foreign language textbook plays a special role.</p> Nafisaxon Nuriddinova Tolib kizi Copyright (c) 2023 Fri, 22 Sep 2023 00:00:00 +0500 Full Mobilization of the Uzbekistan National Economy for the War against Fascism <p>In this article, based on available scientific-historical literature and archival data, in the second half of 1941, the national economy of Uzbekistan was fully mobilized for the war against fascism, and the issues of self-sacrifice of the Uzbek people were highlighted.</p> Kendjaev Ya.
