Have you ever wondered how much a single piece of gum can help you with the simplest things like stress, behavior, and appetite control? Well it can. Many people say they did better on a test when they chewed gum, than not chewing gum. It can do a lot more than that. Let me tell you about it.

Surprisingly gum relieves stress. In a study from Baylor College, people who chewed gum got a 3% higher test score than kids who didn’t. Who knew a single piece of gum could relieve stress and increase academic scores. I know I didn’t. If it did that I would chew gum all the time. It would be cool to have a less stressful life, especially during tests and school events.

Now a day’s kid are always getting in trouble and doing bad things. But did you know that gum can help bad behavior? A study from Baylor college shows that kids who chewed gum got in less trouble than kids who didn’t. They also wore nicer clothes and were nicer to little kids. They said that the flavor and how long it lasted got them to cut back on doing bad things. They would also compare who liked what flavor better.

Incredibly, there is one more way that gum can help kids. It can control your appetite so you eat less. More than 8% of the world is obese. If chewing a single piece of gum can help that why not bring it to homes, schools, and other outside programs. It means healthier people in this world by doing simple thing as chew a piece of gum. It also comes in different flavors, such as mint and tropical flavors. It is like chewing your favorite thing to eat.

In conclusion I think gum is a great and effective way to better our world. With less to worry about, you and many other people will have an easier life. Less kids doing bad things. More kids getting into college. Most of all, kids being less worried about their future and their worries. That is why I think gum is a good thing to have in…...

... Benefit of the new public management There is a lot of benefit can be defined in the government that establish New Public Management (NPM). Firstly NPM attempted to diminish the role of the state and make the managers in various agencies become more responsive to be a political leader. Second, it aimed for greater efficiency through the use of private sector management techniques. Third, it focused on the citizen as a customer and service recipient. (Michael Hess and David Adams, 2007) As the major benefit can see that government activities have to moving from centralization to decentralization. We can call it as shared responsibility which all the managers in each agency are sharing an idea for a decision making. Under NPM, agencies have striven for increased efficiency at all levels. Besides that, agencies have more competences and expanded their scope of action in the budgetary process as well as on personnel issues. (Stefan Rieder and Luzia Lehmann, 2002). Among the staff as well can improve the level of motivation by implemented of goal-oriented process. There is also several issue needs to cover in New Public Management. Four major area selected aspect in New Public Management (Derry Ormond and Elke Loffler, 1998): 1- Budgeting New process on budgeting system enhances government to control over aggregate expenditures and facilitates reallocation between resources. Government will no longer discusses on individual appropriations but rather the overall......

A Study on the Effect of Chewing Gum on Students’ Working Memory

...I. Proposed Project Title A Study on the Effect of Chewing Gum on Students’ Working Memory II. Objectives of the Study The study aims to characterize the relationship between chewing of gum and the working memory of students from the College of Engineering. Specifically, the study aims to discern whether chewing gum positively affects working memory capacity whether through visual digits, shapes, or simple math. By determining the results, the study also aims to inform students of a useful tool in focusing on course material. III. Review of Relevant Literature Working memory capacity is a type of memory used daily, and is especially important in education as it measures the potential to learn. Stephens and Tunney (2004a) found that chewing gum improved working memory capacity, specifically digit span and spatial span. Hirano et al. (2008) came to the same conclusion through a different measure of working memory (the n-back task). According to Allen and Smith (2009), further research is needed in order to support this claim. IV. Process Diagram The response variable, working memory capacity, will be measured through a test that measures the ability to recall, in correct order, an increasing sequence of units, such as digits or shapes. Tests of this nature are available for free online, some of which, such as......

...the major conclusions of the Hawthorne studies was that workers' attitudes are associated with productivity. Another was that the workplace is a social system and informal group influence, could have a powerful effect on individual behavior. A third was that the style of supervision is an important factor in increasing workers' job satisfaction. The studies also found that organizations should take steps to help employees in adjusting to organizational life by encouraging collaborative systems between employees and management. Douglas McGregor had two theories by which to view employee motivation, these theories are known as Theory X and Theory Y. Both assume that the manager's role is to organize resources, including people, to best benefit the company. However, beyond this commonality, they're quite different. Theory X leadership assumes the following: work is inherently distasteful to most people and they will attempt to avoid work whenever possible, most people are not ambitious, have little desire for responsibility, and prefer to be directed, most people have little aptitude for creativity in solving organizational problems, motivation occurs only at the physiological and security levels of Maslow's Needs Hierarchy, and that most people are self-centered. As a result, they must be closely controlled and often pushed to achieve organizational objectives, most people resist change and that most people are gullible and unintelligent. Essentially, theory x assumes that...

...ESTABLISHING A COMPENSATION AND BENEFITS PACKAGE LEONARD ANTHONY 3085841 Questions I would have to consider before establishing compensation and benefits package are; what is the purpose of the business I am in? Is it a high turnover industry? Is the industry targeted employees targeted for short-term employment? Am I in the peoples business or is my business predicated on the performance of employees? Once those questions have been answered, I would be able to establish a compensation and benefits package. For this paper I will take the later that my industry or field does experience turnover but it consist of employees that are committed to the company and looking for long term employment. The first things I would have to consider are my direct (cash) and indirect (benefits) compensation package. My direct compensation package would consist of salary, hourly wages and bonus. Factors that would affect my direct compensation package are supply and demand, labor unions and the company’s ability to pay and its productivity and government regulations according to (Montana & Charnov, 2000, p 222). Supply and Demand dictates the availability of qualified people within the area to do the job. If the economy is doing well then their will be great competition in attracting qualified candidates to do the job, this means management would have to pay a higher dollar amount to qualified candidates. If the market is slow then there will be a surplus of qualified and......

...Employee Benefits Employee benefits is very important benefit that every employee should be looking at when it comes time to search for a job. Many companies offer a lot of employee benefits, however; there are some that are more important than others. When the organization is developing and planning their benefit package, there is information that is very important for the planning process and then there is other information that is not as important when it comes to the planning process. The most important information when it comes to planning process for employee benefits would be compensation(2014). You have to have a good compensation package for your employees based on their experience, education, and knowledge. When employees are searching for jobs, one of the first things they want to know is how much they will be making per an hour or if it is salary, the employee will want to know how much their salary is going to be. So that would be one of the most important things to consider when planning for the process of employee benefits. The second most important thing when a company is planning for employee benefits would be medical insurance. Most companies offer health insurance, dental insurance, vision insurance, and prescription coverage. Now a days, every person has to have health insurance due to the Obama care so that is why the medical insurance is one of the most important things to plan when planning the employee’s benefits process. Medical insurance......

Bubble Gum

...Bubble Gum Bubble gum is a type of chewing gum that is especially designed for blowing bubbles. It is usually pink in color and has a particular flavor. The story: In 1928, bubble gum was invented by an American man named Walter E. Diemer. Belief it or not it was an accident as Walter said "I was doing something else, and ended up with something with bubbles." That happened while Mr. Diemer was working as an accountant for the Fleer Chewing Gum Company in Philadelphia. In his spare time he was playing around with new gum recipes. But he ended up with something different it was less sticky than regular chewing gum. It also stretched more easily. One day he carried a five-pound glop of the stuff to a grocery store; it sold out in a single afternoon. But why is bubble gum pink? The only food coloring in the factory was pink. Walter used it. That is why most bubble gum today is pink How it's made: 1- First the mix Gum base colors and flavors and while it mixing they add softeners and sweeteners 2- After that they blend the ingredients for 20 min until they melt. 3- Then, the gum has to be flattened. So it is passed through huge rollers to get thin sheets of the gum. 4- Then they keep it to cool because if they start cutting now it will stick into the machines. 5- After it cools down it can be cut into small pieces. 6- Finally it's wrapped with plastic wrappers. 7- And now it's ready for you to enjoy. Another thing about gum it helps to...

...started operations offering a good package of benefits to attract good talent. The benefits exceeded those of similar or larger companies.The original package offered Complete Medical, 3 week vacation plus all official Holidays paid, plus other non official Holidays, besides the company included five sick days that could be used or paid at the end of the year. Also the company offered a generous bonus at the end of the year (Martinez, 2010). The Medical covered 100% of the premiums for the employee , and his/her spouse and 50% on children- all with $500.00 deductible plan, and the company would cover the $500.00 deductible ( Martinez, 2010). When the cost of medical insurance exploded, Food Process and Control held on the same benefits until a couple of years later that was not affordable, so they needed to re- structure the benefit plan, especially because at this time they were looking at more employees and that was really affecting the cost in to the company (Martinez, 2010). To cut costs Food Process and Control reduced the coverage of spouse and children to only 50%, a couple of years later Food Process and Control was forced to eliminate our portion of the $500.00 deductible and change the plan to a $1000.00 deductible to reduce the escalating costs. As for dental insurance Food Process and Control has never offered dental insurance to its employees. Now its time for a re-structure the medial and dental benefits at FPC’s and that is why I am choosing......

Xanthal Gum

...Xantham gum Xanthan gum is a polysaccharide, derived from the bacterial coat of Xanthomonas campestris, used as a food additive and rheologymodifier,[2] commonly used as a food thickening agent (in salad dressings, for example) and a stabilizer (in cosmetic products, for example, to prevent ingredients from separating). It is produced by the fermentation of glucose, sucrose, or lactose by the Xanthomonas campestrisbacterium. After a fermentation period, the polysaccharide is precipitated from a growth medium with isopropyl alcohol, dried, and ground into a fine powder. Later, it is added to a liquid medium to form the gum.[3] It was discovered by an extensive research effort by Allene Rosalind Jeanes and her research team at the United States Department of Agriculture anthan gum derives its name from the strain of bacteria used during the fermentation process, Xanthomonas campestris One of the most remarkable properties of xanthan gum is its ability to produce a large increase in the viscosity of a liquid by adding a very small quantity of gum, on the order of one percent. In most foods, it is used at 0.5%, and can be used in lower concentrations. The viscosity of xanthan gum solutions decreases with higher shear rates; this is called shear thinning or pseudoplasticity. This means that a product subjected to shear, whether from mixing, shaking or even chewing, will thin out, but once the shear forces are removed, the food will thicken back up. A practical use would be in......

Gum How Healthy Is It?

...Trident Splash Strawberry Lime is the new line of gum because it is not just a breath suppressant but also incorporates fruit flavors while remaining sugarless. An ad for Trident Splash, in the magazine called Health, attempts to attract a female audience that is conscious about what they eat. The Trident Gum ad is effective towards attracting women, young and old, who are health-conscious because of its placement in the healthy eating section in Health magazine. The targeted audience for this ad is allured by the representation of a healthy woman who shows confidence in her actions, and has a little Pomeranian dog. The model shows off her femininity by wearing pink, while being tough by fighting the urge to eat unhealthy snacks in the kitchen. However, the colors in the model’s clothing and the product are vibrant in contrast to the faded colors of the kitchen background. Furthermore, the sales pitch is directed to the idea of enjoying what you eat without feeling the complete guilt of a snack. he target audience Trident Splash is trying to reach out to are women who are health conscious. This demographic of women as selected because the main goal of marketing “is to package individuals, or groups of people, in ways that make them useful targets for the advertisers of certain products through certain types of media” (Turow 99). This is shown by the contents of Health magazine where there are articles that are for women of all age groups who care about their health. Some of......

...Question 10-3 Page 403 As mentioned in the text, its is undeniable that their will be a growing number of older workers in the workplace, older workers will play a important role in the labor market in the future. This is a subject, which organizations have taken into great consideration for the future of their business. As stated by Bill Albright, Director of Quality of Work/Life and Benefits, MITRE. “If large numbers of our older workers all left at one time, our company would experience a significant loss of intellectual capital as well as the social capital connected to professional relationships. Furthermore, our experienced workers have institutional knowledge that is critical to our clients.” Employee benefits and management practices have historically been designed with the assumption that older workers would seek leisure between the ages of 59 and 65, and that younger workers would have developed in sufficient numbers to replace the graying workforce. Clearly, there are not sufficient numbers. Organizations that have recognize the impact of the loss of Boomers to companies and potentially to the economy are probably asking, "What can we do to proactively address the needs of our workers over 50?" Being able to answer this question has been baffling organizations, but taking proactive steps towards being able to maintain their aging workforce is critical. Organizations should consider that older workers are willing to work different schedules; serve as......
