Review of the potential health impact of β-casomorphins and related peptides

Proteins are a very diverse family of large organic compounds involved in many important biological processes. Following their enzymatic hydrolysis during food processing or digestion, proteins may release fragments from their primary amino acid sequence. These fragments are called peptides, and many of them are known to be physiologically active. The possible beneficial effects of bioactive peptides have attracted increasing interest in recent years. On the other hand, there are also reports suggesting that some food-derived peptides might adversely affect human health. Among these, β-casomorphin-7 (BCM7), a peptide sequence present in the milk protein β-casein, has been suggested to contribute to an increased risk for certain non-communicable diseases, such as autism, cardiovascular diseases and type I diabetes. Some literature reports have proposed possible mechanistic explanations for such associations Recognising the alleged negative effect of BCM7 on human health, EFSA deemed it necessary to perform a comprehensive review of the published scientific literature in…...

... GE217 Composition II Week 2 (B) Identifying logical Fallacies 1. Bandwagon Appeal: “Cash for Clunkers”; The New York Times, September 30, 2012 The argument on this article is about how the people think that something should to be done because the majority does it. The "Cash for Clunkers" program has been a success. By subsidizing the purchases of new, more fuel efficient vehicles for Americans willing to trade in their old gas guzzlers, this initiative makes a short-term investment in our long-term goals of environmental protection and decreasing our dependence on fossil fuels. 2. Ad Hominem: The education for women; Richard Norquist; This is an article from the year 1917 were women are not suppose to know everything like men, he’s argument and appeal that women should have the right to go be equal to men in terms of education. 3. Begging the question: “Murder is morally wrong, Therefore, abortion is morally wrong”;Hurley P. ; The argument presumes the truth of a premise that isn’t stated, namely that abortion is murder. As this premise is far from obvious, and the arguer doesn’t even mention it (much less give it a defense), the argument begs the question. 4. Red Herring: Consequences of using Nuclear Power; Dean Babst and David Krieger; 1997 Here the arguer does nothing to address the issue of the dangers of nuclear power, but instead changes the subject to the danger of electricity. If there’s even an argument at all here, it certainly has nothing......

...activities that need to be benchmarked. For instance, the processes that merit such consideration would generally be core activities that have the potential to give the business in question, a competitive edge. Such processes would generally command a high cost, volume or value. For the optimal results of benchmarking to be reaped, the inputs and outputs need to be re-defined; the activities chosen should be measurable and thereby easily comparable, and thus the benchmarking metrics needs to be arrived at. Prior to engaging in the benchmarking process, the total process flow needs to be given due consideration. For instance, improving one core competency at the detriment to another proves to be of little use. Therefore, many choose to document such processes in detail (a process flow chart is deemed to be ideal for this purpose), so that omissions and errors are minimized; thus enabling the company to obtain a clearer idea of its strategic goals, its primary business processes, customer expectations, and critical success factors. An honest appraisal of the company's strengths, weaknesses and problem areas, would prove to be of immense use when fine-tuning such a process. The next step in the planning process would be for the company to choose an appropriate benchmark against which their performance can be measured. The benchmark can be a single entity or a collective group of companies, which operate at optimal efficiency. As stated before, if such a company operates......

...little or no protection, and which could result in severe punishment for them at the hands of jealous wives. (v) There was always the fear that they could be sold away from their plantation at any time, thus disrupting their family life. For this reason, slaves preferred to keep personal possessions, which they could move easily with them it such a transfer became inevitable. (vi) Slaves were fearful of the whites’ ridiculing their culture, a strategy used o make them full inferior. The slave masters’ ignorance and fear of, and thus their hostilities to, the slaves’ culture caused them to seek suppress visible aspects of it, such as the beating of drums. CONCLUSION In conclusion the social composition on the sugar estate depends on the class your situated. At the top were the whites, followed by the slaves which was divided up into three parts which were first the domestic slaves, skilled slaves then the field slaves. The whites and the slaves feared each other. The researchers based on the evidences found have proven beyond reasonable doubt that the layout of an eighteenth century sugar plantation does to a large extent reflect the social relations among the persons living there.

Macroeconomics: Composition

...1. Macroeconomics: Composition Try to read an article perhaps from sources that are linked to EconExpress - a website established to direct students to economics oriented articles. (Admittedly, there are few odd periodicals, but a substantial number of links are associated with news and magazines that publish the types of articles that are appropriate for college students of economics.) If you cannot find appropriate articles at EconExpress, then you are welcome to do your own search. The articles should have been recently published. You may not use an article or topic that has already been analyzed and posted by another student. Write your composition, analyzing the news via the recent principles of economics you have learned. You should write in a word processor, then copy and paste your writing as a post in Canvas for News Analysis A or News Analysis B. Copy and paste, do not attach documents. The required written format of your news analysis is highly structured. 250 words minimum must be written in the required format demonstrating the principles of the course. The first line of your composition - type the topic of the news you are analyzing - do not use the headline from the researched article. On the next line, put the name of the news source and the web address (url) where the article can be found. (The url must be specific enough so that other students could go to the very place and read the same article that you read.) ...

Composition all too easy to lose sight of the bigger picture of what’s happening outside their companies. Competing on best practices effectively raises the bar for everyone. While there is absolute improvement in OE, there is relative improvement for no one. The inevitable diffusion of best practices means that everyone has to run faster just to stay in place. No company can afford sloppy execution. Inefficiency can overwhelm even the most distinctive and potentially valuable strategies. But betting that you can achieve competitive advantage—a sustainable difference in price or cost—by performing the same activities as your rivals is a bet you will probably lose. No one has been better at OE competition than the Japanese, but, as Porter’s work documents in great detail, OE competition has led even the best of them to chronically poor profitability. Competitive rivalry, at its core, is a process working against the ability of a company to maintain differences in relative price and relative cost. Competition to be the best is the great leveler. It accelerates that process. In the next four chapters, we will see how strategy, built around a unique configuration of activities, works to achieve and sustain competitive advantage. Strategy is the antidote to competitive rivalry. The Economic Fundamentals of Competitive Advantage Popular metrics such as shareholder value, return on sales, growth, and market share are misleading for strategy. The goal of strategy is to earn superior......

The Document

...Sainsbury's (A): Transforming the Supply Chain Introduction In 1869, John James and Mary Ann Sainsbury opened their first small dairy shop in London, England. Sainsbury's is now one of "the big 3" retailers in the UK grocery industry. This paper demonstrates the issues Sainsbury were involved in when implementing their new supply chain system; as the company received a lot of bad publicity and decreased their reputation. The document covers as to "what went wrong and why" and "what can be learned" from a Sainsbury directors perspective. Sainsbury and the market competition Sainsbury is committed to the quality of service of its label; because of this the competition of their rivals - Tesco, ASDA, etc - are all trying to gather the highest percentage of market share. In 1992, Sainsbury lost its cutting edge and the competition had started to make ground. In 2002 the competition in the UK grocery industry was altered. Over the years, Tesco has evolved to become the new clear cut market leader, with 26% market share. While Sainsbury's is second in the market share with 17%. In relation to supply chain systems, a benchmark study revealed a significant age difference in systems and warehousing infrastructure between Sainsbury's and its best-in-class competitors. The idea was to secure second place in the market share, breaking away from third place. Reasons for Sainsbury's new supply chain system As a result of the new study, the company came under immense pressure......

...Composition 1.1 Felipe Viveiros de Moura PAT 201 1. “Creaking Door” a. Where and when: This creaking door was recorded on Wednesday, 13th of January in my house located in South State Street. b. Interest and influence: Having lived in this house for about 5 months, the creaking of my door every time I leave my room has become a sound that is part of my daily routine. After listening to all my recordings and selecting the top 8, this was one of the ones that, I believe, captured exactly what I was looking for. c. Techniques: Mic of the recorder was placed very close to the axis of rotation of the door d. Success in capturing sound: For a couple of tries, I could not capture the sound as loud as I intended to. After changing position, recording from inside the room and increasing the recording level, I was able to get the results I wanted. Background sound from my roommates was another difficulty but recording from inside the room helped solve the problem. 2. “Flush” e. Where and when: The flush of a toilet was recorded on Wednesday, 13th of January in my house located in South State Street. f. Interest and influence: Although this is a sound that everyone listens to every day, it does not receive the appreciation that it deserves due to its bad association. g. Techniques: recorder was placed perpendicular to the toilet centered in the drainage, to avoid the sound being too loud I made sure to place the recorder......

Portfolio Composition

...Portfolio Composition Portfolio Composition These days there are all kinds of investments. There are equities, options, bonds, and many others that can go into a selection for any kind of investment vehicle be it an index like the Dow 30, or a mutual fund like MYHAX from Mainstay. What makes things more complicated is when people need to contend with not only the selection process, but also issues with regulation and what the parent company would like to see. Classifications coupled with the current investment environment can make for a very complicated investment selection process. This paper will go into detail about some of how that process can affect organizational decisions concerning portfolio composition. It will choose a Dow 30 organization and the mutual fund, MYHAX from Mainstay as examples. The kinds of assets a mutual fund will buy are first brought about by a prospectus. This is a document that states all of the things the mutual fund managers can do when they get investors funds. They are bound by this document to invest the way it says they will. For the most part, the assets they are going to buy are somewhat laid out in this document. For a mutual fund like MYHAX, they are buying discounted bonds, or what some might refer to as junk bonds. The manager is MacKay Shields LLC, in fact, they are so good at what they do that same management was hired by First Trust portfolios to manage FSD, an ETF. They pick asset classes as it says on the prospectus. They...
