The richness of the Chapters and collective efforts of the Authors are additional ice on the cake for current and future researchers, educators and policy makers. However, the curiosity to know the unknown is always the beginning of a lifetime appreciation of what we can do and the possibility of how we can achieve the impossibilities. Without doubt, the knowledge gaps that have been identified are in response to how things can be improved.

Dear Members,

I am biased but having been in education for many years, I believe I can still be objective. Infonomics Society is second to none. It is the BEST. I am sure you will quickly find conferences sponsored by Infonomics Society, are not like the usual ones. Even though we are virtual this year due to the pandemic, the conferences are unique in many ways. Infonomics Society conferences have the bar set very high.  Other educational conferences are going to add more quality and offer more academic opportunities if they wish to compete.

I am so pleased to be part of the Infonomics Society and feel it is a gigantic honour to be the President. It is my hope, desire and dream, that we are able to move forward in promoting education worldwide for everyone. I hope everyone feels that honour to be a member of this great society.

I further believe as a member of Infonomics Society you are in a high-quality organisation.  It is made up of individuals who are all motivated to make positive influences in the world. Follow us on:

 

 

Please feel free to contact me if you would like to make suggestions, serve on committees, or just visit. I look forward to meeting you in the future.

All the Best,

Professor Barba Patton

A Message of Hope to Infonomics Society Members | 19 November 2020 

We would like to thank all our members for their courage to carry on in the most efficient, fact findings and making sure that they are able to contribute to the knowledge domain during this difficult time. In collective efforts we can do more to build communities of researchers and experts that will eventually create and lead to a world of knowledge enrichment.

We can have an abundance of time in doing things (as many countries around the world are experiencing lockdown) but it is the little time we spend in sharing our knowledge that influences how the next generation will think and where to start from.

We urge our members to take advantage of the COVID-19 lockdown and festive seasons to search for the next knowledge gaps in their research fields that require further investigation. Our members can present the analysis of findings and result outcomes of their research work as speakers, conference papers, journals, book chapters, case studies, workshops and tutorials.

Can Coronavirus (COVID-19) be contained? | 20 March 2020

To give a little insight, the hashtag of “2020 will be my year” went viral on many social media platforms – people were really hoping a new start for them in one way or the another, but little did we know that the whole world would be struck with Coronavirus (COVID-19), which we only imagined could possibly happen in movies. But the magnitude of 1918 to 1920 pandemic (H1N1 Virus) known as the “Spanish Flu” or “La Grippe” cannot be forgotten even though it was 100 years ago, the memory of dose that died are still with us. The severity of the Spanish Flu cannot be underestimated or over exaggerated, as records showed that about a quarter of the world’s population were infected. It was estimated that 500 million people were infected. The COVID-19 like Spanish Flu is indeed a global problem, an invisible enemy, nobody is immune to this deadly virus and it does not discriminate who and when to take control of the human body.

A new strain discovered in late 2019 that has not been previously detected in humans with the virus being able to spread around the world. Whether COVID-19 could be contained, is a question that urgently need an answer and there are many unanswered questions on How, Where and When did the COVID-19 start. The propagation of the virus was escalating from been an epidemic to pandemic. The COVID-19 is a zoonotic disease. In other words, it spreads between animals and humans. Detailed research shows that SARS-COV can spread to people from civet cats, and MERS-COV can spread to people from camels. Some well-known coronaviruses are transmitted in animals that have not yet infected humans. Signs of infection include fever, cough, shortness of breath or trouble in breathing, in more serious cases, infection of pneumonia hits, kidney failure including other organs and death.

The COVID-19 was firstly referred to as a virus but due to the spontaneous and uncontrollable propagation, it is now referred to as a disease. The potentiality of COVID19 being referred to as a disease has been the roar of high alert and deep concern worldwide, as death rates plummeted from one country to the other. The state of panic caused by the spread of COVID-19 in many countries has shown the dark side of the society, people queuing for food to buy at the supermarkets, some bought more than what they could consume themselves or within their families by doing so creating an artificial scarcity with huge price jump and others with the possibility of selling the consumable goods online at a high price making abnormal profit.

Furthermore, Governments around the world are adopting unprecedented measures to control the COVID-19 by maintaining social isolation. Major cities are blocked with various travel restrictions imposed across the countries and their boarders. To reduce stress and panic on the society, patients with mild symptoms are placed in temporary containment facilities which were set up in many places around the country, establishing quarantines for citizens who are coming back from their travel, powerful emergence of the epitome of hygienic care, self-isolation and social (well-formed) distancing are the daily norms. Odd enough, some countries have demonstrated that COVID-19 can be suppressed and controlled. A call for all countries to take urgent actions and respond to the outbreak is necessary than ever before.

On a serious note, we can stop the spread of this invisible enemy. Collectively we can make the world a better place and even strive to develop more vaccines that can cure other diseases. Please follow the Government advice on how to stop the spread of COVID-19.
