Disposable food wrappers, utensils, beverage cans, plates, etc. are seen frequently and on an everyday basis by many. These one-time use-and-throw articles are dumped in water bodies, buried, or incinerated (Scott and Gough, 2003). Such a culture consumes resources like fossil fuels and trees more swiftly than it is able to replace them. As sustainable development principles aren't, at present, interwoven into governmental policy and everyday life, eco-literacy can grow into a key "bottom-up" factor in ensuring community-based sustainability. Ecologising education can mold and inspire… Continue Reading...

The United States has been built upon the idea that freedom should be a basic right. While the country has seen its fair share of battles, with itself and with outsiders, it has maintained this very ideal throughout… Continue Reading...

Book Review Of Bethany Moreton’s “to Serve God and Walmart

utilization of client demographic profiles and product categories is required. Further, just like fast- food giant, Mcdonalds, Walmart is usually embroiled in antagonistic or spiteful zoning debates, and how can one reconcile this with Christian principles? How is one supposed to justify the quandary of the closure of innumerable Christian bookstores, partly because of their inability to keep up with competition posed by Walmart? Moreton's work will undoubtedly open up avenues for further research; for instance, it would be a great idea to make the author's work more complex and scrutinize Whole Foods and other such companies for explaining the… Continue Reading...

8 Issues Regarding Public Health in Brazil

is increasing at a rapid rate and coincides with the introduction of fast food chains and Western-style "fast" diets into the country (Niehues et al., 2014). ABESO, the country's health department agency, recommends that Brazilians exercise more -- particularly by biking to work -- but as Cunningham-Myrie et al. (2015) show, exercise is just one part of combating obesity: diet is another. Brazil must address this issue of getting back to a healthy diet to combat the spread of obesity. 3. Infectious diseases. As the World Health Organization notes, travelers to Brazil should be away of infectious diseases. Riding… Continue Reading...

Educational Plan for Improving Behavioural Health Amongst Older Adults

Populations in rural areas grapple with poorer health outcomes due to challenges such as greater resource constraints and shortage of health care personnel and facilities, with vulnerable populations being the most affected. This is particularly true for rural populations in North Dakota (ND) (Molmen et al., 2013). Constituting a substantial portion of the overall state population, older adults (aged 65 and above) in rural areas are particularly affected by the worrying health care situation in the state, especially in terms of smoking, alcohol consumption, and obesity. Education provides a valuable tool through which the behavioural health of older adults in… Continue Reading...

Poverty in Young and Middle Adulthood

to inadequate protection; inferior living and lodging conditions, which has traditionally been identified as a source of disease; and food and water connected ailments because of the simple reason that poverty-ridden people are unable to afford "safe" drinking water and food (Dario, 2015). A statement as to whether you think poverty is the result of cultural or individual characteristics; provide support for your position? In my opinion, poverty stems from individual characteristics. Therefore, I would greatly stress on the importance of individual responsibility and sincere, committed efforts for acquiring basic necessities like food, healthcare services and housing. Individual traits… Continue Reading...

Main Systems Of Human Body

Astudillo, 2016) The human digestive system constitutes a tube via which food consumed via the mouth passes through the body and is finally egested from the anus. It comprises of a number of organs having their own respective functions and structures. In the course of its transportation through the digestive system, food breaks down into matter that can be readily absorbed into our bloodstream. The digestive system's foremost structures are the oral structures and the mouth. But minimal food digestion occurs here. By means of chewing or mastication, food breaks down enough to get transported via the upper part of… Continue Reading...

The two main aspects to note with regard to culture are: cultures change perpetually, and they are related to symbolic aspects in places where people make continuous meaning and enact their identities. Cultural groups inform members of what's of significance or value and members' identity relating to people from other cultures.

Other future OAA programs will supplement employer savings plans now in order to cover future expenses for the aging population. Health prevention services may also need to be covered under the OAA provisions in the future. With a focus on prevention, funding may be liberated from preventable disease treatments and diverted towards programs that keep seniors active and eating well. For example, the White House has suggested OAA partnerships with the National Institutes of Health on the Go4Life exercise campaign… Continue Reading...

Japan and Confucianism in Art and Society

especially in the form of Confucianism. China gave to Japan much food for thought: from the mainland came Confucianism, Buddhism and Lao-Tzu -- all of which were combined in the doctrine of Neo-Confucianism that also was brought from China to Japan by Zen monks who traveled to the mainland for study. What Confucianism gave to Japan was a system of law, order, respect, veneration and duty that appealed to various persons throughout the state. The concept of veneration appealed to the aristocracy because they wanted to honor their ancestors: they did so by bringing tablets and altars into their… Continue Reading...

The Eucharist and the Laity

Eucharistic Meal There is no greater religious food in the Catholic religion than the Eucharistic Supper that is given at Mass when the priest consecrates the bread and wine into the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ. This act is called transubstantiation, and for Catholics it is a religious miracle because while the Body and Blood retain the appearance of bread and wine, their substance is believed to contain the body, blood, soul and divinity of Jesus Christ. Those who receive the Eucharistic during Mass and said… Continue Reading...

Saving the Cows, Starving the Children" by Sonia Faleirojune and the article entitled " food Price Inflation in India: Causes and Cures" by Pradeep Agrawal and Durairaj Kumaraswamy in the Indian Economic Review available from JSTOR both address food issues in India. These articles appealed to me because I find India to be a fascinating country where there is so much potential for greatness yet so much inherent contradictory actions and agendas that frustrate the country's advances. Faleirojune focuses on the contradiction at the heart of India's policy towards banning beef: cows are literally everywhere in India and could be… Continue Reading...

Significance Of Effective Logistics Management at Mcdonalds

Supply Chain Problems McDonalds' Corporation, which is the largest fast food service provider across the globe, has been experiencing challenges with its supply chain. These challenges have been characterized by poor performance, which has forced the company's Chief Executive Officer to depart (New, 2015). One of the major factors behind Mcdonalds' recent poor performance is the origins of its products given that competitors in this industry are renowned for having products and raw materials that reflect freshness, trustworthy sourcing, and health. In essence, Mcdonalds is experiencing challenges in its modern supply chain processes that have generated concerns regarding the trustworthiness… Continue Reading...

How to Grow the Economy

of money slowly decreases. This is precisely why things like gas and food were cheaper, in terms of actual dollar amount (or "real" dollars") a generation ago as compared to now. That happenstance alone does not mean anything is wrong. Indeed, a two-liter bottle of soda that used to be a dollar in normal instances is now going to be $1.50 or more. However, what should be avoided at all costs is deflation (the opposite) or excessive inflation. In extreme inflation cases, money goes from being able to meet basic needs to being basically worthless overnight. Venezuela is undergoing… Continue Reading...

John Stuart Mill’s on Liberty

Political Philosophy II: Theories of Freedom John Stuart Mill's On Liberty is one of the foundational defenses of liberal, democratic government. According to Mill, there are certain core principles "that should regulate how governments and societies, whether democratic or not, can restrict individual liberties."[footnoteRef:1] Mill wrote that regardless of whether a monarch, dictator, or even a democratic majority governed, the only reason to deprive others of their liberties was what he called the harm principle, namely, that "a harm, an action must be injurious or set back important interests of particular people, interests in which they have rights" and "justifies… Continue Reading...

In other words, heading into the 21st century, Hong Kong was well behind the West in terms of orientation towards fitness as a substantial industry (reflected in actual physical activity).… Continue Reading...

Moreover, the carryon bags in the overhead bin should be placed in such a way that it will not move out or fall when the overhead storage is opened. This means carry-on baggage should not be stacked except lighter items that include coats, pillows, and hats that may be stowed on top of the suitcases.

For instance, aspects of Western dressing and music, along with greater awareness of and loyalty to brands, are now amply evident in Asian countries and the rest of the world, mirroring increased homogeneity in consumer behaviour. The homogeneity of attire is a particularly good example.

Indeed, global warming threatens food security, human health, human and non-human survival, as well as socioeconomic stability in the future (Cummins, 2014; Justin, 2015). Addressing the problem, however, remains a major challenge in large part due to the moral, ethical, and philosophical questions surrounding it. More specifically, there remains a great deal of controversy over who is responsible for reversing global warming. In this presentation, I delve into this issue. The presentation will be made at an upcoming climate change conference held at a local community center. The audience comprises a… Continue Reading...

Consumer Protection Memo

Since then, several other consumer protection regulations have been passed, notably the food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (1938), cigarette warning regulations (1966), Consumer Product Safety Act (1972), and the Federal Hazardous Substances Act. Besides federal regulations, states have their own consumer product safety regulations, a further indication of the criticality of the matter. Consumer warning labels have without a doubt played a crucial role in safeguarding the health and safety of consumers. For instance, with the introduction of cigarette warnings in the 1960s, alongside other policy measures such as prohibition of smoking in public and cigarette taxes, the… Continue Reading...

Background Of Social Work

work served as a reaction to mass impoverishment, illiteracy, mental health issues, disease, food shortage, and several other urban issues. The Settlement House Movement and Charities Organization Society developed in response to the aforementioned issues, guiding social work's development and professionalization in America (McNutt, 2013). The Dichotomy between Micro and Macro Practice in Social Work Profession Hahn (2013) claims the two-fold approach of fostering social transformation and offering individual service represents a key trait of the social work profession. This field integrates micro (individual, group or domestic unit) as well as macro (organization, community, or policy) interventions. Often, micro-level… Continue Reading...

Taking into consideration that from the time of the financial crisis and the subsequent recession, numerous individuals have been unemployed for a significant period, they will not be able to go back to the high compensating jobs they had before. The implication of this is that there is an increase in structural unemployment. Considering that the rate of unemployment will continue at a natural rate, it is expected that the economic outlook of the United States is healthy. This is bound to have a positive… Continue Reading...

Instead, "hell" is still all around the narrator, living in a "soundless space" -- a metaphor for desolation, where no voices are heard,… Continue Reading...

The Homeopathy Center (HC) recommends Nux Vomica as well, especially when the pregnant woman first wakes up. The HC also suggests taking "Sepia" (in particular when the woman is exhausted and indifferent "to loved ones." Women carrying babies often complain of heartburn, because hormonal changes tend to "relax the esophagus"; and the HC suggests "Pulsatilla" to remedy heartburn.

Mcdonald's

and consistency, some anthropologists define the act of getting food from McDonald's as a ritual. Like football and the act of cheering for a team. These actions can be interpreted as ritual because they carry meaning. "On one level McDonald's is a mundane, secular institution- just a place to eat- but on another it assumes some of the attributes of a sacred place" (Kottak, 1978, p. 523). Looking at the behavioral uniformity experienced at McDonald's one can see how some may see sacredness in such an establishment. That sacredness is tied to devotion. People feel inclined to continue visiting… Continue Reading...

This passage underpins the reader's conviction that Ah Nee wants the sort of female agency Granny has and wishes she could determine who she works for. It also proves that she does not have this sort of agency, because she is complaining about the fact that her initial preference is to work with a Chinese family. She is also peevish about the fact that her pay in her present situation is not as much… Continue Reading...

A few months after I turned one, my mom started noticing that I behaved differently or "strangely" (in her precise words) as compared to other toddlers. She also noted that such atypical behavior started surfacing immediately after I was administered a succession of vaccinations.

I refused to look people in the eye when addressed and started exhibiting repetitive behavioral patterns (for instance, I would solve a puzzle, jumble it, and… Continue Reading...

The poorest conservatives, for example, will accept their food stamps and other social services like Medicare but they will also refuse to break party lines. The ultra-poor conservatives therefore opt out of voting entirely, choosing disenfranchisement over betrayal of the tea party. It only requires a few notches up on the social class ladder for people to vote against social services entirely, even for people who are dangerously close to poverty. Similarly, wealthy Tea Party advocates also take advantage of all the social services programs they can but admit they… Continue Reading...

Is over Population Happening in the World

these regions, Malthus's assertion, that population increases geometrically while food supply increases arithmetically, can be discerned as evidently true based on the configurations of the people in the region. However, when one looks at whole countries, such as Germany, Japan, or even the U.S., one can see a decline in population that Kotkin calls a "death spiral" -- i.e., in that long-term low birth-rates are causing populations to dwindle. The issue here is that Malthus never saw the expansion of birth control to the extent that it has overtaken much of the developed world. As of 2010, nearly half… Continue Reading...

Philosophy Questions

any qualities that are allocated to material objects are in relation to the one perceiving them. For instance, food can be considered hot, warm or cold depending on an individual's perception. As a result, Berkeley makes the argument that individuals solely know perceptions and not materials or things, but rather aspects as they are perceived (Solomon and Higgins, 2013). Lastly, Hume makes a gripping argument against materialism, the conceivability of a spiritual or supernatural reality and also the immortality of the soul. In essence, Hume posited that neither matter nor mind exists. He makes a distinction between antedating a… Continue Reading...

The core competencies that drive the business are in the efficient preparation of food.

The pros of online consumer reviews include receiving potentially unbiased information about a product or service. The cons of online consumer reviews include their increasing lack of credibility as more companies are resorting to tactics like paying bloggers for positive product reviews, paying writers to write positive Amazon reviews, and the inability to genuinely decipher the difference between a trustworthy and untrustworthy review. Paid or compensated reviewers are becoming increasingly savvy in their presentation… Continue Reading...

The Chinese set great store by personal relationships. Thus, tea, lunch, or dinner meetings hold special meaning: the Chinese assemble at such occasions to converse with one another, unwind, and most notably, cultivate a close bond with others. Misunderstandings largely surface when individuals are unaware of their culture's behavioral codes and end up projecting them onto other people.

Child Drug Addiction in Afghanistan

it is cheaper to sustain an addiction than it is to acquire food. In fact, the film shows that the war on drugs is the main problem. The government of Afghanistan, ostensibly due to international anti-drug pressure from the UK and the United States, has obliterated opium poppy crops -- the main source of income for many rural families. Cut off from their primary source of income, the families in those regions have nothing else to live on and thus use drugs because it is cheaper than eating and also cuts down their appetites.

Cultural Interaction and American Revolution

Cross-Cultural Differences and Communication Cultural identity is a significant force that shapes the interaction between people from different cultures. The contemporary globalization has made intercultural interactions inevitable in the contemporary society. People draw conclusions about other people's culture depending on a wide range of observations about the individual's way of live, values and behavior. For instance, understanding what people from specific cultural values helps in drawing about that culture in that specific aspect of value or behavior (Byram, 2015). For example, I have drawn the conclusion that martial art is a significant cultural practice in the Chinese culture. This conclusion… Continue Reading...

Customer service is roughly equivalent in each store, but there are different customer service needs for a telecommunications versus clothing store. Depending on the Zara store, sales personnel range from totally detached to openly helpful. The same can be said for Sprint.

"There is a legal test for judging whether commercial speech qualifies for protection under the First Amendment. Called the Central Hudson test, it says that such speech must be truthful and not 'actually or inherently misleading'" and it has been argued that much of commercial advertising targeting children takes advantage of a credulous consumer's inability to tell the difference between truth and fiction (Bittman, 2012, par.11). In this instance, however, the objections raised to our new advertising campaign are not targeted at… Continue Reading...

In sum, the terrorist suspects detained at Guantanamo Bay are being held as “unlawful enemy combatants” who violated the law by seeking to challenge the legitimacy of the United States (Howland, 2013). In response to the force-feedings, the cover of the Economist proclaimed:  “’Unjust, unwise, unAmerican: Why terrorist tribunals are wrong,’ and displayed a blindfolded Justice, draped in Grecian robes, holding scales and sword, and seen in the cross hairs of the scope of a rifle aimed at her heart” (Metcalf & Resnik,… Continue Reading...

The Adiele & Abraham (2013) research on students parallels the work by Gawel (1997) on stimulating employee satisfaction in order to increase motivation and measurable performance outcomes. Finally, recent research connects self-determination theory with Maslow’s theory of human motivation. Low motivation and dissatisfaction in any area of life are empirically linked to precipitating factors such as lack of autonomy, lack of competency, and lack of meaningful relationships with others (Deci & Ryan, 2014). Recognition of the efficacy of Maslow’s… Continue Reading...

Performance standards Production rate per hour What is the rate of food production from the point when raw materials are received in the kitchen to the point it is ready for the customer? This standard seeks to establish the number of food units that are produced within a set number of hours from the various production lines. For example, how many units of grilled chicken are produced within an hour? This is important as it ensures a high production rate to meet high demand. Cost of production What is the cost of production for… Continue Reading...

Keeping Driving Age at or Above 16 Years Old

devices, grooming (e.g. combing hair, putting on makeup, etc.), eating food, drinking drinks, partying within the vehicle and otherwise being rowdy and reading of any sort. The last of those would include reading textbooks, newspapers or even directions or emails. Passengers and how they influence or distract drivers, however, remains the top item because it would seem to be the reason for distracted driving roughly fifteen percent of the time. However, texting while driving was a close second, coming in at twelve percent. It should come as no surprise that teenagers have the highest crash rates when compared to… Continue Reading...

Honey Maid’s “this Is Wholesome” Campaign

playing drums with their parents and a baby sucking on a bottle as well as the children making food with their parents. This serves to reinforce the normalcy of these family units. The social groups represented in the advertisement appear to be largely from an upper-middle-class income bracket, based upon the nice, attractively-furnished homes in which they reside (even the punk family with the tattooed father has an expensive drum set and family living room). The upper-middle-class family demographic with children, residing in the suburbs, is presumably the target consumer persona for the advertisement, given that higher income individuals… Continue Reading...

Super Size Me Documentary Review

It focuses on what it would be like to consume nothing but McDonald’s fast food for an entire month. That is the outlandish premise of the film—and it is more than likely to appeal to two types of people: 1) the health-nutritionist type of person who will approach the film with type of confirmation bias, expecting his or her point of view about how bad for one’s health fast food is to be fully validated, and 2) the extreme spectator type of individual—i.e., a person who is interested in alternative or fringe experiences, things that go against the status… Continue Reading...

De Jouvenel Quote on Sheep and Wolves

fight or flight cues. Wolves are higher on the food chain, and possess far greater power and influence than the sheep. With his statement, Bertrand de Jouvenel urges the population to be collectively more like wolves and less like sheep. The philosopher is not suggesting that people be aggressive or exploitative, but simply that they take responsibility for the government they create as active participants in a democratic society. Considering contemporary society and culture in the United States and in Western Europe, de Jouvenel’s words show how citizens willingly follow the herd rather than thinking for themselves and making… Continue Reading...

Other Cultures Xenophobia and Understanding

The world is more interconnected now than ever before, both with technological tools and also with population migrations that are occurring on an unprecedented scale. People who grow up in pluralistic, heterogeneous societies like the United States, India, or Canada take cultural diversity for granted. However, many people around the world live in homogenous societies with little contact with other cultures other than through what they read about or see in media. Plurality in a diverse society does not, however, automatically lead to social harmony or understanding. In fact, the United States continues to struggle with racist elements in its… Continue Reading...

Comparing Gospels Of Matthew to Mark

emphasis on faith, how it starts small and grows. It provides a kind of mental food for his audience, whereas Matthew’s prelude focuses on the visceral shock that one should expect from being a disciple. Thus, the context in which the two passages are set indicate that they should be slightly different in delivery. Mark’s less dramatic delivery is a natural extension of the mustard seed parable, and Matthew’s more dramatic rendering is a natural extension of the cost of following Christ as described in Matthew 8:18-22.

The Community Aspect Of Business

The area needed a good, solid social setting like that which the two entrepreneurs offered. In a sense, the two were not just opening a business but were also adopting a corporate social responsibility perspective: meeting a need in the community and projecting good vibes and good will among the patrons in that region by sharing their struggles with them in the early stages. This allowed fast bonds to be made and for everyone to be… Continue Reading...

Anthropological Observations at a Salad Bar

bar says a great deal about America’s relationship to food and changing American society in general. First of all, the diversity encompassed within the offerings of the salad bar itself are impressive. I noticed that many diners did not actually go to eat salad at all but rather to sample the exclusive offerings of Indian, Chinese, and organic world cuisine. Very ordinary-looking businessmen were trying foods from around the world. After sampling the different cuisines they all hunched over one man’s laptop, a familiar sight in many coffeehouses and restaurants during lunch. The fact that what would have once… Continue Reading...

Technology and Education

one of the most interesting technologies mentioned is related to food: fake meat. Lant (2017) describes Richard Branson’s ambitious project to develop a sustainable vegetarian protein source that he believes will replace animal killing altogether. While I doubt the entire world can be converted away from animal killing, I do believe this is an important invention that will not only promote animal ethics, but will also help the environment. The drawback is mainly financial: there are many people with a vested interest in the meat industry, and it is hard to imagine how the price point of a new… Continue Reading...

Film Analysis N!ai, the Story Of a !kung Woman

society since bushmen had relatively no difficulties in finding food, had freedom, and had peaceful relations with others. This is demonstrated through N!ai’s early nomadic life that was characterized by hunting and gathering. Despite the relatively happy times from the tribe before the settlement, N!ai was dissatisfied with her husband who she married when she was still young. She struggled with the experiences of being a young girl who is still growing and encountering childhood fears as well as the struggles of being a wife at a young age. N!ai’s relationship with her husband did not commence on good… Continue Reading...

Globalization Is Not Americanization

and “cultural intermingling,” (Collins, 2015). Evident especially in specific sectors like food culture, music, and the arts, cultural comingling is not American. The only thing that is remotely American about cultural intermingling is the fact that the United States was one of the first modern nation-states to popularize the practice of an immigrant society. Immigration and migration have been perpetual patterns throughout human history, but the settlement of the New World led to the unique phenomenon of immigrant-dominant societies: Canada and the United States. The native people of both Canada and the United States lack sufficient market, cultural, or… Continue Reading...

Which Is Better Paper or Electronic Currency?

If we are talking about money as a store of value (Davies, 2004), I would rather hold on to physical precious metals such as gold and silver, because these at least keep track with inflation and have universal appeal no matter the age (Kemp, 2001). Yes, their value can be manipulated (as can nearly anything that is placed into the futures market) by bankers,… Continue Reading...

Keys to Success in Multinational Companies

In managing a multinational company in the food products industry, it is essential to implement a solid knowledge management system to ensure that as much relevant information as possible is handled in the most effective manner. Issues that must be addressed to ensure the safety of the product and that optimum delivery to consumers is possible include: sanitation, where workers may eat and drink, conflict resolution, how in-house teams will conduct business, how online teams will facilitate the organization, security, and emergency evacuation procedures. This paper will discuss the key… Continue Reading...

The agency has facilitated terrorism preparedness and response measures within the nation. The OHS or Homeland Security Office instituted under the Bush administration post-9/11 has a comparable, though… Continue Reading...

Treadwell and Herzog's Grizzly Man

the bears were less likely to be as non-interested in Treadwell as they were in the summer when food was plentiful. For a hungry bear, Treadwell is not a friend but a source of food. Unfortunately that is the reality. The opening shot of Timothy talking to the camera and describing his manifesto displays his lack of maturity and his own ego. He is often grinning out his own perceived greatness and poeticism and he gets excited about his love for the bears and his feeling of kinship with them. It is almost as if he is overwhelmed by… Continue Reading...

How Important Is the Idea Of Equality to Each Theorist

for cash. Cash does away with limitations on how much property may be obtained (in contrast to food, cash doesn’t go bad). Subsequently, people start amassing property for themselves and family members. This is followed sequentially by an interchange of certain natural liberties for entering the community and entitlement to certain collectively enjoyed rules, put in force by a single executive body. Executive power is necessary for the defense of personal freedoms and property.

World War Two Propaganda Pamphlets

designed to create a sense of community-driven war efforts, such as asking citizens to conserve or ration their food (Riddle, 2016). In addition to the domestic propaganda used during World War Two, the American government also engaged in an even sneakier means of manipulating minds: disseminating propaganda among the enemy civilian population. The American Office of Strategic Services used what it called “black propaganda,” which was made to appear as if it originated within Germany and Italy (Little, 2016). The goal of the black propaganda included to weaken civilian support for their own governments, undermining trust, and also to… Continue Reading...

Gender Roles in Traditional East Asia

Confucianism is one of the major factors that influenced gender views and perception in traditional East Asia, particularly in relation to the treatment of women in these societies. Confucianism is primarily a teaching that was brought by Confucius, a philosopher, political figure, and educator. The teachings of Confucius formed the foundation of education in the traditional societies in East Asia, especially in China, Korea, and Japan. Confucius teachings affected many things in these societies including fixing gender roles between women and men. Based on these teachings, which influenced nearly every facet of life in the conventional Korean, Japanese and Chinese… Continue Reading...

College Debt

A majority of financial experts suggest maximum borrowing to amount to one’s anticipated earnings during one’s first year following graduation. But the hike in tuition fees renders this suggestion hard to follow. Nearly 50% of collegegoers today consider quitting college midway owing to debt incurred. Unable to meet these expenses, an increasing number of pupils are actually quitting college. Meanwhile, other pupils have no option but to seek full-time employment, besides attending college full-time. Hardly any… Continue Reading...

In the Qualla Boundary region, the Cherokee reservation consists of 82,600 square miles with a resident population of more than 9000 Cherokee (United States Census, 2010).

The bargaining power of buyers is often quite strong, because there are only a handful of major players in any one area. The industry is becoming increasingly concentrated. In fact, Wal-Mart now controls 21.5% of the US grocery market, giving it tremendous bargaining power over a supplier like General Mills (Daniels, 2017). Balancing this is the fact that as a major buyer of agricultural products, General Mills can exert pressure down the supply chain – but often times the suppliers have… Continue Reading...

What remains unanswered, really, is how we can stop contributing more greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. When we look at the causes of these emissions, our entire society is based around the things that cause greenhouse gas emissions. So this is a pretty major challenge, but our survival as a species depends on it, or on a lot of adaptive capabilities. References Extinctions in the recent past and the present day. (2017).

In the long run, this increases the odds of survival for each. 3. The wolves may have a cost in terms of not eating monkey babies, but if that changes then the monkeys being so acclimated to the wolves would be a long-term cost. 4. The relationship definitely might change if resources were scarce. Right now, they are not competing for resources but if they were, then the benefits and costs dynamic… Continue Reading...

Pathophysiology Of Gastric Acid Stimulation and Production

The digestive fluids that are secreted by the stomach glands aimed at breaking down solid food and to kill bacteria in the stomach are referred to as gastric juices. Gastric acid is produced by the gastric parietal cell located on the walls of the stomach. The region where the gastric juices are secreted into the lumen is the most acidic environment in the human body and is known as the secretory canaliculus (Schubert & Peura, 2008). The secretion of the gastric acid into the lumen occurs in response to a variety of messages from the paracrine,… Continue Reading...

Domestic Violence and the Effect on Children

Hierarchy of Needs. Before an individual can grow to be self-actualizing, he must first obtain the basic necessities of life— food, shelter, and love. In a family where domestic violence is a quality of life, children are the unnoticed victims, whose lives are shaped and sometimes altered for the worse. This paper will discuss how domestic violence impacts children and what effects that has on the criminal justice system.

The main reason for this is that the owner/executive will get stretched thinner and thinner. It may seem like a huge opportunity cost for him or her to do this, however, given that there are perceived problems and shortcomings that someone has to resolve. This is where proper delegation of duties comes in. While delegating to… Continue Reading...

Africa and Asia, for example, depend on certain types of grain and flour imports from North America. If grain production in North America slows due to drought, as has been predicted, then the people in Asia and Africa may suffer the most: the regions already plagued with malnutrition and poverty (Adebobola, n.d.,… Continue Reading...

India Government and Economics

more domestic pea production, “the short-term move to lift Indian market prices could impact India’s long-term food security needs,” (Nickel & Jadhav, 2017). India has also come a long way towards lifting import licensing requirements for “most consumer goods,” but some products continue to be heavily restricted—the biggest being motor vehicles (India Country Commercial Guide, n.d.). Therefore, India has liberalized and continues to liberalize trade but tariffs and other barriers to trade are proving to be major impediments. Political Issues India’s government under Modi has been remarkably stable, in large part due to the country’s increased openness with the… Continue Reading...

Action Plan Assessment and Communication Strategy

read for the seniors as well as kitchen-trips to give food to the homeless. Based on research, the trips to the nursing facilities as well as the homeless shelters have an instant effect on students, and via conversation, students would certainly value the way homeless people lived and that individuals actually lived that long. This may cause them to value one another and discover richness within their diverse cultures (White, 2009). Culturally communicative techniques must also concentrate on the part vocabulary performs in the teaching pedagogy along with the learning procedure.

The Zika Virus Threat to the United States

improved heat or rainfall will globally enhance ZIKV distribution, simply because weather modifications have complicated consequences throughout food webs (from herb growing to bird tendencies) as well as the thermal consequences around the virus alone could be nonlinear (Lessler et al., 2016). Over an extended period range, growth and also urbanization has resulted in a spread of A. aegypti as well as A. albopictus in heavily inhabited locations, which might have presented environments that are ideal for ZIKV circulation. There exists some chance that immunological connections along with other flaviviruses might be assisting the distribution or pathogenesis of ZIKV… Continue Reading...

Genetically Modified Foods

not comprehensive enough. Many companies use inadequate means where the chemical analysis of the food isn’t compared completely to non-GMO foods, or there is an inappropriate use of statistics (Maghari & Ardekani, 2011). All studies assessing the safety of GMO foods need to use animals responsibly in order to determine the short and long term impacts of consuming these foods. Any other assessment is incomplete and cavalier. The more compelling point against GMO foods involves the danger of interfering with natural and the natural order. GMO foods have given rise to super weeds and to anti-biotic resistant bacteria and… Continue Reading...

American Dream and Wealth Gap

1% in the country have seen their paychecks grow exponentially while the working class wages have barely moved. Meanwhile, food prices, health care, education, homes, cars, stocks, bonds—virtually everything has gone up. The wealthy can afford them, but the lower classes have to borrow or work two jobs just to maintain the status quo—and it is getting harder and harder to do that as inflation continues to be seen across the board, though wages for the middle and lower classes stay put. The video uploaded by WarZalez (2011) entitled “The One Percent” shows that the top 1% of families… Continue Reading...

Fast Food Restaurant Security

As with many consumer-oriented businesses, fast food restaurants need to maintain a strong but unobtrusive security profile. Their structures and access points need to remain accessible while still preventing malicious behavior. This security survey of a fast food restaurant provides an example of how to perform a total security audit, identify weaknesses and risks particularly with regards to customer and employee safety, and offer suggestions for improvement. Property and Perimeter The outermost boundaries of the fast food restaurant are the limits of the company’s locus of control.… Continue Reading...

Colonial Conflict in Africa

African Association began to organise protests against the distribution of war-rationed goods, particularly food and clothing, along racial lines” (p. 241). The rise of activism among the Africans was a serious blow to the colonial authorities’ desire to see their African subjects ruled as passive recipients of British codes of conduct. As a result of their concern, the colonial authorities banned teams sponsored by ethnic associations from competing in the urban football league. Sports that were of less appealing character to Africans—such as cricket—were not included in this prohibition, as there was no real incentive among Africans to rally… Continue Reading...

Brand Image Of Sears

Executive Summary Sears is a retail company that offers a range of products and services via brick and mortar locations and online shopping portals. Its brand focuses on offering quality proprietary brand products and in-home services in an industry that is currently led by larger retailers like Wal-Mart, Target and Amazon, the e-commerce giant that is single-handedly changing the nature of retail today.

Nursing Practice Changes

patients’ bodily needs and elementary comfort, cleaning of patients and providing them with proper food, the administration of medicines according to a doctor’s instructions, supervising wards when the physicians were not present, the performance of enemas, cuppings and bloodletting, the main therapeutic means used at that time, [and] the placing of patients on the operating table and the performance of minor operations” (p. 32). In short, nurses demonstrated very many of the same values and attitudes required of them in the profession today—but this should not be surprising, because the doctrine on providing quality care is derived essentially from… Continue Reading...

Perspective from a Wheelchair

I got thirsty and tried to order a Diet Coke from a vendor at the food court. All of the vendors had long lines, so I naturally selected the shortest one and got in line behind a family of three (a couple with a young boy about 5 years old). While we were all waiting for the people ahead of us to place and receive their orders, I was looking around trying to avoid eye contact with this inquisitive youngster who was obviously intrigued by my wheelchair. When it became impossible to avoid it any longer, I smiled at… Continue Reading...

Diabetes Mellitus in Rural Settings

Clinical Problem: Diabetes Mellitus in Rural Settings Mid-range nursing theories can be extremely useful in understanding specific clinical issues. These theories are less broad and all-encompassing than so-called grand theories of nursing such as Jean Watson’s Theory of Human Caring and seek to offer a more technical and practical approach to applying theory in daily practice (Alligood, 2018). This paper will specifically examine the application of Kristen Swanson’s Theory of Caring to the treatment of patients suffering from diabetes mellitus living in rural settings without adequate access to healthcare. Virtually all nursing theories are composed of four essential core definitions,… Continue Reading...

Anti Obesity Programs and Policies

and promote obesity-related policies and programs. Government agencies like the food and Drug Administration and the USDA also have distinct policies and programs. In spite of the abundance of both private and public funding for anti-obesity research, policy development, and programming, the majority—two-thirds—of American adults are overweight or obese, and more than a fourth of all healthcare costs in the nation are consumed by obesity-related issues (Levi, Vinter, Richardson, et al. (2009). With a few exceptions, obesity policies in general have been relatively ineffective at reducing overall rates of obesity or changing public health trends. The most effective anti-obesity… Continue Reading...

Black Lives Matter Essay

Black lives matter because all lives matter” (2017, p. 21). Conclusion Do Black lives matter? Of course they do, but the fact that an organization was created to articulate this concept reinforces the unpleasant reality that race relations remain at the forefront of… Continue Reading...

Bullying Essay

boys at baseball practice decide to go to a fast food place to eat. One person is left to the side, ignored, treated as though he was invisible. Making people feel excluded from a group can lead to feelings of worthlessness and depression. People suffering from relational bullying may experience mood changes, turn to isolating themselves, or withdraw from peer groups altogether. Although relational bullying can happen with either gender, girls experience this form of bullying more than boys, especially in certain age ranges. “Between eight and eleven years of age, girls continue to use more and more relational… Continue Reading...

may not be so genuine in other social media platforms. For example, Wendy the fast food chain, has gained notoriety and internet fame for their sassy Twitter account. This account makes consistent viral posts that make users laugh, generating increased brand awareness for the company. Wendy's fast food chain might be named after a sweet little girl, but don't be fooled by that seemingly innocent exterior. Beneath that sign lurks a world of sass, as Twitter users everywhere have recently been discovering. The fast food restaurant is well known for its hamburgers and chicken sandwiches, but they've also started… Continue Reading...

Global Ecological Civilization Essay

if water is being contaminated, there is no right to safe drinking water; if food is being contaminated, there is no right to eat safe food; and if the environment is disrespected, there is no right to shelter. Hence, according to this understanding, subsistence rights are an ecological right. It means the right to live in a domain wherein human-produced environmental dangers would be limited — as expressed in the Stockholm Declaration brought out in the year 1972. The future and present generations right to live in a situation which is enough for his/her well-being and health assume that… Continue Reading...

Culture Essay

community norms. Some cultures will eat different foods than others. For example, the food in India is very different from the food in America—and so too is the approach towards religion where in India most people are Hindus whereas in America most people follow some form of Christianity. Understanding cultural differences is helpful in bringing people together so that they can work as one whole unit. It does not mean that cultural differences have to be abolished so that everyone exhibits the same cultural expressions; it just means that cultural differences should be respected for the sake of getting… Continue Reading...

Globalization Essay

For many decades, America has just been dismissed as a super-capitalist, fast- food nation, intent on materialism, gross foreign policy and saturating the rest of the world with its culture. There’s a far more nuanced perspective available of what America is like as a country, one that includes its promotion of individualism, world peace and a commitment to self-betterment. The greater the sense of understanding that can exist between nations, the greater an opportunity for there to be peace and mutual assistance. With greater information moving between nations, this opens the door for a greater cultural mingling (Collins, 2015). Sharing… Continue Reading...

Bartleby the Scrivener Analysis Essay

he is supposed to be gaining a basic understanding of how the law works. He often gets food for other, older workers in the novel. His name is presumably a nickname, referring to a spicy inexpensive type of cookie he brings back for other workers in the office. It is the crumbs of a the ginger nut cookies that the narrator later finds in Bartleby’s work area that may bear suggestive symbolism. Themes Work and Obligation One of the major themes of the short story revolves around ideas about work and obligation in connection with human existence. Notions of… Continue Reading...

The former reduces appetite to help the patient reduce food intake more reliably, while the latter is a drug that acts as a gastrointestinal lipase inhibitor, effectively interfering with fat absorption to prevent weight gain.

Addressing the needs of parents and parents-to-be will help reduce overall health spending, liberating funds in healthcare budgets and helping families also to reap the rewards. When genetics, lifestyle, and structural-institutional variables are all taken into account, obesity prevention programs become… Continue Reading...

The real estate sector has benefitted more than most from the economic development the country has experienced in recent years, and this is transforming the retail landscape (VDB-Loi, 2017).. Malls are being developed in the country, in the major cities, and these are going to allow Myanmar to follow the merchandising patterns already seen in Thailand, Vietnam and other Southeast Asian nations that have gone through this… Continue Reading...

Such apps can lower the cost of entry into a foreign market, even in the emerging markets that Papa John's is targeting, because they allow the company to earn more money from fewer fixed resources. Another way that technological change can help a company like Papa John's is that with the internet, more people are being exposed to different aspects of American culture.

Diabetes and Drug Treatments

the body (for example, a milk shake, chocolate bar, or simply any kind of food), the pancreas releases insulin which acts to keep the blood’s sugar content in check. However, when insulin is either not produced or ineffective in regulating the blood sugar levels, diabetes is the result. Diabetes is a metabolic disease that can do much damage to the body’s organs and nervous system. This happens when the glucose produced by the liver as a result of consuming food is unable to be absorbed by tissues; the tissues naturally use the glucose for energy but if they cannot… Continue Reading...

a 39% lower likelihood of receiving public assistance and a 40% lower likelihood of food stamp receipt in the year following the child’s birth, when compared to those who return to work and take no leave at all. By continuing to pay new mothers a salary while they take a leave from their jobs, employers are essentially investing in their workers’ and in their own futures. They ensure a stronger loyalty from their workers, and that helps to reduce costly turnover rates; they ensure that their workers will be more likely to earn higher wages in the future, which… Continue Reading...

Atticus responds with an explanation as to why Mr. Cunningham keeps leaving food at their house and this opens the reader to the realization that the characters are living during a tough economic time. “The Cunninghams are country folks, farmers, and the crash hit them hardest.

measures to decrease exposure to GMO foods in America. From food labeling to encouraging the purchase of foods that are non-GMO sourced, these measures have painted a stigma on GMO. Several reasons exist for the removal of GMO foods. One reason is that most genetically modified genes inserted into the seeds that yield fruits and vegetables are derived from foreign species like bacteria and viruses (). These bacteria and viruses can cause harm to the human body in the form of sterility, allergic reactions, and deceased livestock. For example, one article noted that GMO corn may change the histological… Continue Reading...

In addition to their discussion about business processes and practices, business and science ethics, and intellectual property dilemmas, the author shows how potentially risky companies are formed through perseverance and how corporate structure and culture inform business practices, too. Hughes also addresses the potential for business, academia, and science to find points of convergence that help benefit all three. Growing the economy and creating multiple revenue streams does not necessarily need to come at the expense… Continue Reading...

Whether Immigration Is a Problem or Not

Immigrants directly build cultural capital by introducing arts, music, food, and business ideas to the United States. It would have been impossible to grow the American economy a hundred years ago without the contributions of immigrant laborers, from the Chinese railroad workers to the scores of immigrants from Eastern Europe, South Asia, Latin America, and beyond. The United States has never been and never will be a homogeneous country. Therefore, capitalizing on its heterogeneity is the key to retaining the nation’s brand identity instead of letting its reputation continue to deteriorate due to nativist-type anti-immigration sentiments. Immigration is not… Continue Reading...

Globalization and International Business

on the product – specialization has merits when every process is repeatable, so for highly repeatable things like fast food standardization makes sense. But localization makes sense where there are market gains to be made by tailoring the product to local tastes. In terms of branding, Melewar and Saunders (1999) find that standardization is an important element of international success. The factor that poses the biggest risk for the organization is the consistency issue. Some products should have near universal consistency, but other products really don\\'t benefit from that, because there is a cultural element to the product (fast… Continue Reading...

Healthy Cities/Healthy Communities also promote the principle of patient autonomy. Nurses promote patient autonomy by encouraging patients to make decisions based on available information and resources. Patients are not coerced in any way to access or utilize public health resources or community services, but those services are available and the patient and family members are aware of those services. Finally, Healthy Cities/Healthy Communities promote… Continue Reading...

All of these tenets are suddenly legal and now puts a black man in a position as having few rights than a black man living in the south at the height of Jim Crow. Hence, legal scholars all over the world have suggested that perhaps Jim Crow was never truly eradicated, but something that was simply redesigned (Wacquant, 2002).

However, we must treat these foreign materials as we do our food…we should never swallow anything raw or absorb it uncritically.”[footnoteRef:4] [4: Mao Zedong, Selected Works, in Sources of Chinese Tradition, 2nd ed., vol. 2, edited by Wm. Theodore de Bary and Richard Lufrano (New York: Columbia University Press, 2000), pp. 422–23. ] Thus, one can conclude that in the West, industrialization and capitalism intermingled in a way that was purer and less unfettered by the influence of what other countries around the world were doing. In China, industrialization was a movement that developed as means… Continue Reading...

Bangladeshi Economy in the Post Partition Era

the Bangladeshi government undertook rice subsidy hikes as well as maintained controls on the prices of food, fuel, agricultural produce and energy (2018 Index of Economic Freedom, 2018). With regard to open markets, the Bangladeshi economy gives moderate-level importance to trade. The combined import-export value is 38% of its GDP and applied tariff rate, on average, is 11.9%. Trade is hampered by non-tariff obstacles. Foreign investors’ accessibility to the Bangladeshi economy is below average. The Bank Companies Act was amended for strengthening central bank autonomy, besides reducing commercial state-owned banks’ special treatment (2018 Index of Economic Freedom, 2018). The… Continue Reading...

p. 63). This helps introduce the cocoa industry in West Africa. Raw resources like food and minerals has become the main export of many African nations. They cannot subsist unless they farm certain crops or allow the mining of their vast reserves of minerals thus leading to a stifling of innovation and continued inability to achieve economic prosperity. West African Cocoa Industry in the 1960’s The 1960’s brought a production boom of cocoa in several African countries. This led to overproduction and reduction of selling price of cocoa around the world. Cocoa while easily sold can only earn so… Continue Reading...

Minimizing Bias and Student Diversity in Assessment

Abstract No teacher can entirely avoid the realities of student standardized assessment. But teachers must make informed choices in the classroom in regards to how students are instructed, based upon individual student needs and awareness of student diversity. There are significant questions regarding the potential biases of many standardized tests, particularly in regards to historically discriminated-against racial, ethnic, and socio-economic groups. Teachers must be aware of these questions and biases and act as advocates for their students on a schoolwide and statewide level to ensure fairness. Ethical Standards in Assessment: Minimizing Bias and Student Diversity in Assessment Education is supposed… Continue Reading...

Labeling Gmos Pro or Con Essay

One of the most controversial issues in food politics today is the question of genetically modified organisms. Many consumers dispute whether such products are safe at all. But while the evidence regarding the safety of GMOs continues to be debated within the scientific community, another debate has arisen, specifically regarding the need to label products which contain GMOs within them. Because of the ubiquitous nature of GMOs in agriculture, GMO-containing products can span from everything from foods to pesticides. Producers oppose such labeling requirements, arguing that there… Continue Reading...

moneyless world, a painter might paint all day one day for the week's food, but then paint all day the next for a simple shoe repair. With money, the painter can find fair value for work done, and then use that money any way seen fit. The divisibility of money is one of its best attributes as a medium of exchange. The last aspect that makes money a powerful means of exchange is that it serves as a store of value. This references again the physical limitations on both services and barter goods – money can withstand time, whereas… Continue Reading...

the developed nations. As Sankara once pointed out, “if you want to know what neo-colonialism is, look at the food on your plate” (Harsch, 2014, p. 174). Like Thomas Sankara, others who have in the past been critical of the sustenance of economic and political influence over former colonies include Kwame Nkrumah. Amongst his most famed works on this specific subject is Neo-Colonialism: The Last Stage of Imperialism. In this particular piece, Kwame Nkrumah sought to bring to the fore the issue of neocolonialism in the vast African continent. In his opinion, it is the continent’s ‘balkanization’ that has… Continue Reading...

To thwart these efforts, the American public must act quickly. They must lobby the government against Monsanto and use the evidence from countries like India and Argentina where GMO crops grow, to demonstrate the deleterious effects of GMO. Viable Solution The first problem that must be solved is GMO and labeling. The GMO food labeling bill must allow clear labeling of GMO foods instead of the QR… Continue Reading...

William Gibson's Neuromancer on Technology and Humans

imagery and metaphors from the natural world to describe the scenes in Chiba, even the food the people eat has been technologically modified and thus would be unrecognizable to anyone who did not directly participate in that reality. The human-technology interface is strikingly realistic because of the fact that human beings already do rely heavily on pharmaceuticals and plastic surgeries, already do use technologies to enhance global food security, and especially have come to rely on technologies for all business transactions. Gibson shows readers a world in which human beings go far beyond mere dependency on technology, to a… Continue Reading...

For instance, if a business offers consumers a reasonably priced basic commodity, such as food or clothing, then there is likelihood that consumers may have a preference of selecting such a commodity over more luxurious alternatives. Conclusion Scanning the external environment of an organization precludes astonishments and helps guarantee its long-standing health. An environmental scan facilitates strategic planning activities for an organization in numerous ways. The prevailing state of the economy can have an effect in the completion of an environmental scan. Imperatively, economic uncertainty impacts the direction of consumers in terms of spending. During such periods, individuals… Continue Reading...

major study on the safety of genetically modified foods determined that, based on the traditional human food consumption patterns, there are no safety issues with the consumption of plant-based GMO foods (Konig et al, 2004). Further studies have examined the use of GMO crops as feed, with reference to the safety of meat products derived from the consumption of animals that were fed GMO crops. This study also found that there were no negative health effects related to genetic modifications (EFSA GMO Panel, 2008). More recent papers have questioned these findings, arguing that there is no scientific consensus on… Continue Reading...

Kraft Foods Canada Targeting the Millennials

the market for processed cheese itself had been falling and millennials tended towards products that reflected wellness and healthy food—the antithesis of what processed cheese offers. Kraft therefore finds itself in a position of needing to rebrand one of its most iconic products, making Kraft Singles relevant to millennial moms—and their children. Kraft Singles promotes four core brand attributes overall: health, nutrition, taste, and convenience (p. 7). To retain authenticity, Kraft Singles needs to develop a new marketing campaign that is both relevant to millennial moms while also remaining rooted in these four core attributes or values. Because of… Continue Reading...

Viewed in conjunction, developing a protein bar that promises health benefits and the virtues of clean eating could be very useful. Many of these types of bars exist,… Continue Reading...

Why Columbus Day Should Not Be Celebrated Essay

that during Columbus’s rampages, butcher shops were set up throughout the Caribbean selling Indian bodies for dog food: “There was also a practice known as the montería infernal, the infernal chase, or manhunt, in which Indians were hunted by war-dogs. These dogs?—?who also wore armor and had been fed human flesh?—?were a fierce match for the Indians. Live babies were also fed to these war dogs as sport, sometimes in front of their horrified parents” (2018). Thus, there was an inhuman, sadistic side to the conquests led by Columbus, one that needs to be acknowledged so that his holiday… Continue Reading...

Marketing Goods or Services

restaurant meal is such a product. The good is the food. While food is perishable, most food will not spoil if it isn't sold today. But the service component – the opportunity to seat people at a table – that is a service because it is perishable. You can fill that table tomorrow, but if you're open today and not filling a table, that is a revenue opportunity that will be permanently lost because of the principle of perishability. Perishability is a critical concept in services marketing. Perishability means that demand forecasting is critical, but so is the ability… Continue Reading...

Assessing the Benefits Of Marijuana

very same thorough scientific examination and clinical trials applied by the FDA ( food and Drug Administration) to every other novel medication. This inclusive process aims at ensuring highest efficiency and safety standards (FOCUS). The American government’s marijuana ban had the unintentional effect of ensuring considerable quantities of cannabis were secretly grown indoors, where they could be cultivated under controlled conditions. Further, growers could steadily increase THC levels, which is the psychoactive ingredient in the plant. Owing to indoor growers' fervent attention to all needs of the plant, the author Pollan considers these illegal cannabis growers "the best gardeners of… Continue Reading...

The Cross Cultural Exchanges in Early Days

description of the lad, the people, their mode of dressing and livelihood, their food, the animals found therein, their local governance are all indication of the naivety of the explorer about this culture. The narration indicates that the view of the explorer on the foreign culture was still stereotyped since he always contrasted what he saw with what happened in his own culture from where he comes. He described the dressing of the women as strange and host of other things. This is a clear indication that the familiarity of his culture to him informed his worldview and anything… Continue Reading...

Satire in Knox's Chicken Bucket

to adulthood in a cascading fit of booze, schedule 1 narcotics, underage sex, and fried fast food. One could be excused for calling Knox an ironic poet, because if romance and familial relations are the dominant themes of Chicken Bucket they are only so by way of their rather conspicuous absence—at least, a quick examination would lead one to think this. However, romance and familial life are really the heart and soul of Knox’s “Chicken Bucket”—they are just presented in a torpid, mile-a-minute, MTV-addicted, ADHD-suffering manner—which means if you blink you will miss them because they are wedged in… Continue Reading...

We Shall Remain Geronimo

“disastrous” for the Native Americans. Some of the miners were murderous and would poison the food of the Apaches using strychnine and even attacking pregnant women and cutting the babies from their wombs, according to the documentary. Some of them would even abduct Apache children and girls and sell them into slavery. They were full of animosity towards the Native Americans and did everything they could to drive them away or to undermine their existence with cruelty and disregard for their human rights. 3 Life for Geronimo during the four years he spent at the San Carlos reservation was… Continue Reading...

How to Be a Successful Student

There was a basic level of needs—i.e., the need for shelter, food, love, etc.—and a higher level of need that culminated in self-actualization, the ability to be self-motivated for no other reason that the individual desired to achieve something positive. This sense of self-actualization—this ultimate motivational drive—is what a student requires in order to succeed in education. Without the right drive, there will be no force powerful enough to propel the student to engage with material that he or she will be expected to learn.

The impact of this is that the patients end up failing to afford their medications, and as… Continue Reading...

How Immigrants Deal with Discrimination

within the US are undocumented migrants concentrated in diverse industries like construction, janitorial work and food services, recognized as being especially susceptible to workplace violations.

My Experience Of Traveling to China

At one time, I remember ordering chicken in a Beijing restaurant, (or, at least, I believed what I ordered was chicken), but ended up with duck on my plate. Hence, when traveling in China, tourists should download language translation apps to minimize confusion. In turn, Chinese restaurants could better accommodate tourists who do not speak the local language by providing menus that are translated into… Continue Reading...

So the FDA comes in to protect the public and tell Mr. Park to fix the problem. If the problem is truly unfixable then the FDA is wrong to prosecute Mr. Park—but though pest control can be difficult it is not impossible and Mr. Park should have been able to do more to address the issue.

If this were rational self-interest, the argument could surely be made that those players who had adopted foolish strategies in the marketplace should be made to take it on the chin and accept the repercussions, even if it meant pain for the global economy as a result. What resulted however was not this but rather the prevailing of a concept known as “privatized gains and socialized losses”—i.e., the players who had friends in high places in government were protected, and the… Continue Reading...

Ethics and the Marketing Environment

In recent years, marketers have been criticized for making unhealthy pastimes attractive (such as eating fast food and smoking cigarettes) as well as marketing to vulnerable populations such as adolescents and children who cannot distinguish advertising from information. On one hand, in a free society, marketers have relatively free rein in terms of what they can transmit, so long as they do not outright lie. On the other hand, there have been calls to regulate advertising and marketing because of fears of its negative social impact. Companies that have violated ethical guidelines have been faced with legal… Continue Reading...

What Is Causing Inflation

This policy became so loose following the Global Economic Crisis of 2008 that the Fed kept interest rates low (which punishes savers), started buying Treasury bills hand over fist (like the rest of the world’s central banks—with the ECB even dipping into corporate bonds) in order to keep the market propped up and rates low, and all that new money worked… Continue Reading...

Capitalism and Economic Surplus

States is Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. Combine this with other programs like food stamps, WIC and a few others, it is easy to see that a lot of surplus is going to people that ostensibly or supposedly need help. To be fair, there are some people that certainly do need help. For example, “full employment” is considered to be 4-5 percent because there are always people that are between jobs for one reason or another. However, the workforce participation rate in this country is rather low as compared to the past and it is hard to discern why.… Continue Reading...

Strategic Controls

It is generic guidance, not a document that says anything about the company's strategy, or supports it. But let's unpack the Supplier Code of Conduct versus strategy. We know General Mills' strategy is to produce and market processed foods for the mass market. Ensuring that suppliers avoid slave labor, or use ingredients that aren't poison, is a pretty low bar to clear, and doesn't actually reflect strategy. These are elements in the supplier code of conduct for literally every company. For this… Continue Reading...

Consider the Lobster Article

commentary on the ethics of eating sentient beings—no matter how low on the food chain. Second, Wallace offers commentary on the ways marketers can dictate local and even global food trends. Wallace uses compelling examples and a combination of pathos, ethos, and logos to argue that boiling a lobster alive represents unethical behavior. Using logos, Wallace points out that the obsession with lobster is akin to the obsession with diamonds: it was simply a marketing technique designed to sell consumers on the idea of something luxurious. In fact, lobsters were considered “low-class food, eaten only by the poor and… Continue Reading...

If it is agreed that the rule related to the distance between the building and the trash dumpster is a reasonable one, then our company should comply with these rules even if it poses an inconvenience and requires us to reconfigure our locations. However, it is possible that the government arbitrarily set these distances. It would be in our company’s best interest to find empirical evidence suggesting that six feet… Continue Reading...

The food drives and other charitable services are done in the name of God, and we make no attempt to hide that fact. When we do work in the community, it is known that the Church and its congregation invites others in. We are a welcoming community that truly believes that God’s love is universal and available to all. However, we also believe that only through Christ can one find salvation.

Diabetes Education and Prevention Health Promotion

Health Promotion: Diabetes Education and Prevention Given the need for specificity in nursing theory for addressing a particular topic such as diabetes education and prevention, Nola Pender’s Health Promotion Model would seem to be particularly useful. The model is designed to assist people in making needed lifestyle changes. It is based upon the presumption that people wish to maximize their health potential and possess enough self-awareness to grow in their capacity to self-regulate (Pender, 2013, p.5). While health professionals can act as facilitators, ultimately the model focuses on people’s ability to engage in self-initiated changes in behavior and in their… Continue Reading...

This creates a situation where the goals, interests, habits, and life’s work of an individual are put out of their grasp—indefinitely. It can make people readily feel like “they’re not themselves anymore.” When people’s dreams and goals are disrupted, it can make them wonder why they even bother going on anymore. It’s important to acknowledge in such cases, when the self is disrupted, this only heightens the instability experienced by the individual. Displacement is a situation that does little to alleviate the experience of… Continue Reading...

the alleged intention of depriving Scarlett of her scanty food supply. Mitchell, the author, redirects a natural slavery feature- the master’s human parasitism- as more condemnation of the presence of the Federal military in the South. Yet, in a funny irony, the vegetables defended by Scarlett, most likely scavenged from the slave garden at Twelve Oaks, are probably the stolen products of slave labor (Adkins 48). In this tale, Gone with the Wind, the author appears unwilling to tolerate the likelihood that Gerald O’Hara or John Wilkes would ever sell their slaves any further than the neighboring plantation.

Homeostasis Its Effect on the Critically Ill

Homeostasis Defined Homeostasis, according to Nirmalan and Nirmalan (2017), is the propensity for living organisms to maintain relative stability in the internal environment. Homeostasis is made possible through the cooperation of several regulatory mechanisms and separate sub-systems which make up the normal physiology of a living organism (Nirmalan & Nirmalan, 2017). During critical illnesses internal or external stress can make an attempt at interfering with the self-regulation systems beyond what is considered as normal range in physiology. According to Palaparthi and Med (2017), the word homeostasis is derived from two Greek words i.e. ‘homeo’ (stands for similar) and ‘stasis’ (standing… Continue Reading...

I find Ayer’s (1990) work to be interesting and informative, and even if I disagree with his perspective, I can still appreciate it and learn from it. To keep myself from reacting poorly to it, however, I must maintain a posture of humility because it does me no… Continue Reading...

In fact, OSHA, the USGS, and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) are among the most important national clearinghouses for information and first responder coordination resources. Responding to an earthquake requires the coordination of resources between local, state, and federal agencies. Local organizations provide the immediate first responders because of contingencies like logistics, time sensitivity, and knowledge of local geography and population needs. However, local organizations do not have the financial or human resources that are… Continue Reading...

And it helps to have a woman on the beer to help sell it today. What does this say for gender roles or for the idea of sexual equality?

Most remarkably, Alexander claims in The New Jim Crow that the creation of a racial caste system is deliberate, part of a grand scheme machinated by the same demographic that would have supported Jim Crow several generations earlier. Essentially, Jim Crow—even slavery—had been rebranded. The media became the mouthpiece for the moral police, and together with political… Continue Reading...

American Poetry Robert Hayden Those Winter

the poet to underscore the emotional desolation, the hibernation of love, and the austerity of times during which food sources might be scarce. In fact, Hayden refers to “love’s austere and lonely offices” in the last line of the poem. The imagery of love’s austere and lonely offices parallels the scarcity and barrenness of winter itself. Taken as a narrative poem, “Those Winter Sundays” describes a father who, in spite of having worked hard all week, must also chop wood for his family on what is likely his only day off. Assuming that the family is also Christian, the… Continue Reading...

who can provide shelter for the child, warmth, care, love, affection, food, and stability. The mother or guardian teaches the child to trust by serving as a means of security that the child can move to when needed and leave when there is an occasion or desire to explore. This is a major developmental need, based on Erickson’s theory of development; however, environmental factors also have a role in promoting the development of the child at this stage. The child’s environment must be one that offers an opportunity for exploration as well as the opportunity to observe others and… Continue Reading...

Positioning and Segmentation It is vital to position and to segment the market effectively for this product launch for two reasons. One is that the company has sales targets, and the company needs to position in a category that will allow it to hit those targets. The premium chocolate business is competitive, and winning sales will not the easy (Richards, 2018). Furthermore, segmentation allows Apollo to reach the target market where it shops (Gartenstein, 2018). Consumers are not going to go out of their way to try this chocolate so Apollo needs to come to them. If the target market… Continue Reading...

Salmonella Infection

Salmonella Infection The salmonella bacteria had been the twentieth century’s archetypical organism causing food poisoning, highly notorious for the 1988-89 crisis of salmonella in eggs. By that time, however, it had already been a topic of scientific and public health focus for more than a hundred years. Previously linked to animal foods, phage typing’s introduction during the 1940s started revealing the complex nature of its associations with its environment (Hardy, 2004). Epidemiological Triangle The Agent The salmonella bacterium resides in living beings’ intestines. A majority of individuals contract salmonella infection after consuming feces-contaminated foods.

Current gun laws vary considerably from state to state, creating the types of inconsistencies and loopholes that allow nefarious individuals, mentally unstable individuals, and those simply prone to violent outbursts to own and use guns. Gun control is therefore a sensible solution that balances Constitutional law with the ethic of public safety. References “10 Advantages and Disadvantages of Gun Control,” (n.d.).

It might be assumed that this would generate pressure upon the government to take more aggressive action in support of its people or a more amicable attitude to the United States. But as Russia still effectively functions as an autocracy under Putin’s rule, dealing with scarcity has largely been left to the populace’s ingenuity. A number of Russians have even taken upon city gardening in plots, as a way of ensuring a steady food supply when the shops are bare or when foodContinue Reading...

As a Russian studying abroad in the United States, I have experienced many different levels of culture shock. These experiences have made me a stronger person, contributing to the value of my international education. While Russians and Americans share in common a strong sense of individuality and national pride, I have experienced culture shock in terms of communication, lifestyle, and customs.

With the EV and a green energy structure (wind, solar, etc.) to power the grid, our culture could become incredibly different in its orientation to the environment. We could become less consumerist and less focused on consumption and more focused on growing our own gardens, getting back to the earth and becoming a simple, agrarian society again. I believe the potential social change could be positive overall because I think society now is far… Continue Reading...

Hiv Aids Pandemic Outbreak and Discussion

the Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report was able to rule out all casual transmissions of HIV/AIDS such as via food, water, air, and environmental surfaces (cdc.gov, 1983). This was so significant because it provided clarity to the rest of the world about how people were at risk in becoming infected—and how they were not. While it was good that major centers and organizations for health and safety took this disease so seriously from the moment it emerged in the nation, many members of society dismissed the disease as something that was merely a problem of the gay community. “Early… Continue Reading...

On the average, the temperature in a deciduous forest is 50?F. Annually, the rainfall in these forests is between 30 to 60 inches. For temperate deciduous forests, the precipitation is in the form of snow. However, the tropical and subtropical forests have a very tight temperature which is between 68?F to 77?F. Temperate coniferous forests are another kind of forest type. Defenders of Wildlife explain are usually found in coastal… Continue Reading...

Disorders Of Motility Gastrointestinal Tract

Ramsay and Carr (2011), the stomach’s main function is food preparation for digestion as well as absorption by the intestines. In the words of the authors, “acid production is the unique and central component of the stomach’s contribution to the digestive process” (Ramsay and Carr, 2011, p. 977). The parietal cells are responsible for the secretion of acid in the stomach. As Lascelles and Donaldson (2012) point out, the relevance of gastric acid in the digestive process cannot be overstated. This is more so the case given that it comes in handy in the creation of a pH that… Continue Reading...

There are also instances when water that has low doses of pathogenic bacteria necessary for infecting humans can be used for preparing food and this would incubate and multiply the bacteria in the food (Esrey & Habicht, 1986). There are numerous studies that have been conducted indicating that the lack of clean water has adverse effects on the individual’s nutrition. The underlying trend is that the lack of… Continue Reading...

authors further point out, while the cephalic phase is prompted by the smell, thought as well as taste of food, the gastric phase is prompted by stomach distention. The last phase, i.e. the intestinal phase, is prompted “by histamine and digested protein” (Huether and McCance, 2017, p. 888). It should be noted, from the onset, that in the words of Huether and McCance (2017), “gastric secretion is stimulated by the process of eating (gastric distention), by the actions of the hormone gastrin and paracrine pathways (e.g., histamine, ghrelin, somatostatin), and by the effects of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine and other… Continue Reading...

the point where ordinary consumers could reasonably expect to obtain them. If this happened for such basic goods as food like grain or milk, scarcity would drive the country into a state of starvation and chaos. This can happen in third world countries where there is no strong infrastructure in place—but in a country like the U.S., the economy is not driven by scarcity so much as it is by the law of supply and demand. Some researchers have attempted to show that scarcity does drive some markets in the U.S., such as water scarcity—but Rijsberman (2006) countered these… Continue Reading...

Coronary Artery Disease Development

Coronary Artery Disease Development of Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) Coronary artery disease represents an obstruction or constricting (stenosis) of vessels and arteries which supplies the heart with oxygenated blood. The cause for CAD is atherosclerosis (arterial hardening), or a fatty plaque buildup on inner arterial linings. The resultant obstruction impedes blood flow across coronary arteries. The complete cut- off of blood flow leads to a heart attack (or myocardial infarction, in medical terms). CAD takes place when coronary arteries are partly obstructed or hindered, thus cutting off oxygen supply to heart muscles (i.e., myocardial ischemia). When the blockage is temporary… Continue Reading...

How to Achieve Environmental Health

Stakeholders in agriculture need to find ways to meet customer demand for meat, or else the culture of food needs to change so that consumers begin eating more of a vegan or vegetarian diet; the more that consumers demand meet, the more agriculture is going to rely on farm animals, and the more CO2 is going to remain in the atmosphere. Stakeholders have to be willing to look at where they can make changes to their lifestyle and where they are willing to budge. Some people may not like the idea of electric cars, but the alternative is air… Continue Reading...

How to Treat Kidney Failure

Chronic Kidney Disease Chronic kidney disease commonly develops alongside diabetes and/or high blood pressures. Patients who suffer from either are at risk of also developing chronic kidney disease. This is because high blood sugar can cause damage to the kidneys in the same way that a car exposed to wintery weather conditions is impacted by the salt that the city will dump on the road to control for ice. The car will be ruined if not properly cleaned and maintained—and the same goes for the body’s kidneys. To prevent chronic kidney disease the patient must first address the issues of… Continue Reading...

Matt Haig appears to be a simple tale of the origins of a food, it is actually a tale of the origin of distinct social identity. Significantly, at the very beginning of the short story, the collective utopia which simply subsists on pineapples and peanut butter has no named individuals. Everyone works together and helps one another. There is no need for a military, laws, or money. As soon as individualization and mass production is introduced to the society, its fragile social order begins to break down. A young boy named Sol invents peanut butter.
