Many people think about everyday. Here Surrounding by friends and all they think about is to go to college, what school do I want to attend? Do I even want to go there? How do I start? Everyone gets so nervous, I get nervous and we all have the right to be. We are all trying to take the next step in moving on.

After a long period of waste of time or after a long break from school. I have already come to a decision about the previous questions. I know I want to go to school, and I know I want to attend at LIU University, the reason why I choose liu is because I heard a lot of great comment about the school. Besides, my teacher for my CNA class (certified Nursing assistant) went there for nursing, when I told her I got accepted at LIU for “med technology” but I will change for nursing next year, she was happy and she told me to go for it, she also told me, it’s not a cheap school, I smiled and I replied I know. And also My manager at work told me the same, he said he was there for business major and he met his wife that was studied nursing at the time; I also got my classmate from medical assistant school attending at liu as well. I did my research, so I was set, so I applied and I got accepted

I am a really hesitant person. I always make sure I think about everything carefully before I make a decision. For example, I’ve been thinking about college ever since I come to United stated, but my financial wasn’t it scared me, I wanted to make sure that I was ready. Then I learned that, “you’d never be ready if you ever try” with that in mind I said to myself, try or take a chance So I’d gone from thinking I would go to University or to a community college just because I knew I wouldn’t be able to afford school. I always loved school and there’s nothing that will stop me, though, that when I graduate I will be moving on and learning new…...

Social Revolutions

...plants, fruits, and other foods found growing in the wild. The first social revolution was based on the domestication of plants and animals. This resulted in the development of the pastoral society that concentrated on the herding of animals and the horticultural society that specialized in planting and harvesting crops. The second type of society was the Social Revolution society-which included agriculture. This revolution started more than 10,000 years ago, when nomads started to get tired of moving from place to place. Therefore, they started to establish themselves and started to cultivate and domesticate plants and animals. For example, they developed new tools such as the cultivation hoe to create more complex irrigation systems. As these new tools started to emerge, food production increased resulting in food surpluses. These extra food surpluses led to the establishment of new cities and villages. This changed the societies living arrangements. For example people started to make beds, tables, and chairs. By comparison, these types of things would have been unnecessary for the nomads-whom were constantly moving. The increasing interpersonal contact created a need for increased group action and led to the growth of leaders and government. The Social Revolution was one of the first self sustained-stable societies in our history. Lastly, there was the Industrial Revolution society. This society established fundamental changes in the way that goods were made and......

Case Good Food

...1. How can GoodFood be classified in the typology of organizations? GoodFood complements its relatively small volume flow of goods (food and beverages) with services (cooking, serving) thus it can be classified as a service organization with a limited flow of goods. More precisely as food and beverages are purchased and owned by the restaurant it can be classified as a service organization with a limited flow of own goods. 2. a. What risks inherent to this type of organization apply to GoodFood? Risks inherent to this type of organization include: - Insufficient quality or amount of ingredients which could lead to unsatisfied customers and loss of reputation and/or revenues - Most ingredients are perishable thus loss of value of ingredients occur if they are not used on time - Customers do not receive what they ordered (misalignment between customer orders and meals prepared) and therefore are dissatisfied and meals have to be returned and prepared again which means loss of assets - Incomplete documentation of waiters (when orders are not documented thus sales are not recognized) can lead to loss of assets and revenues - Incomplete cash collection by waiters lead to loss of assets Accounting Process Management 2 - 6 - - Theft of ingredients or cash by personnel leading to loss of assets - Since sales transactions are relatively simple personnel usually performs more than one duty (servers take orders, serve meals, and collect cash) which gives opportunity to......

Industrial Revolution

...Essay- The Industrial Revolution In the 19th center, the Agricultural and Industrial Revolutions had changed the lives of the working classes in Great Britain. England played a major role in these revolutions and changed everyday life for many people not only in England, but all around the world. The Agricultural Revolution led to Urbanization in Great Britain because more food production meant less workers. With factories being built and assembly lines forming, many people moves to cities to find more jobs available. Farmers became more involved with new machinery. They were able to harvest more crops with less human labor involved. Also, transportation including railways and improving roads allowed people to bring goods to markets in cities while it was still fresh. For many reasons, England was the leading nation in the Industrial Revolution. England wasn't in battle with other countries and this allowed them improve in technology, transportation, and production methods. Many inventors lived in England at the time and invented many of the machines and engines that were vital to the Industrial Revolution. Factories and other machinery couldn't have existed without the help of the steam engine. Inventions were very important for ships, factories, and mechanics worldwide. England was one of Great Britain's major producers of textiles, coal, and iron. These resources were important for sustaining the Industrial Revolution. England was......

Is the Influence of Media on Our Food Choices a Good Thing?

...Food product choice can be overwhelming and is not made any easier with the influence of media advertisements by companies that want to sell their food products to us. There are many factors that we as consumers must take in to consideration. Do we accept that the advertisement is true, should we trust what is shown to us or should we research the product and compare the cost and nutritional value to other products on the market? Evidently, it’s up to consumer to make a decision on what they eat, nevertheless if we’re frequently exposed to food advertisements every time we read a glossy magazine or watch TV then we may be influenced in what we choose, especially when the advertisement is directed toward children . In this essay I will outline some influence towards one’s food choices and the links between media and children obesity and the effects television food commercials have on children’s food preferences. Food choices are influenced by vast quantity of interrelating factors and theory “it is not solely determined on physiological or nutritional” (Shepherd, 1999, p. 807). Other factor that may influence food choices are biological for example hunger, appetite and taste and then there economic and physical this may be prejudiced by the cost of the food and a individuals income the availably of food choice or education or the skill needed to cook the food. Psychological reason may have a effect on the food we eat for example what type of mood we in. when a we are stress...

Good Food

...Good Food Good food is a basic need of human body. It is of prime importance in the attainment of normal growth and development. The role of nutrition food cannot be neglect¬ed in the promotion of health and prevention of disease. The human body can be compared to a machine, Just as an engine burns up coal or oil in order to generate its energy, so the human body requires food in order to produce the forces which keep the heart beating, the lungs breathing and the limbs moving. But the discovery of vitamins at the turn of the present century has 'rediscovered' the science of nutrition. Since then great advances have been made in the field of nutrition. Gradually, nutrition is assuming increasing importance in a country like India where nutri¬tional diseases are not only widely prevalent, but they modify the course of events of almost any clinical disorder. In recent years the influence of mal-nutrition in the area of mental retardation is being actively investigated. In the more developed countries of the world, nutritional problems are somewhat different. Over nutrition is encountered much more frequently than under nutrition. The health hazards from over nutrition are on increase in mortality and higher incidence of many diseases. So the nutrition of people throughout the world is one of the greatest international Problems of the present day. The terms food and nutrition are sometimes used synonymously, but that is not correct. Food is a composite mixture of various......

...The French Revolution Before the French Revolution, France was ruled and governed by the king and parliament. King Louis XVI ruled by “divine right,” believing that he had been put on the throne by the grace of God. France then was one of the most powerful and wealthiest countries, and had a strong army, and even stronger cultural influence. Louis XVI and his wife Marie-Antoinette were shielded from the daily lives of the ordinary people in France. When Louis XVI inherited the throne in 1774, he also inherited many problems left behind by the previous king, King Louis XV. France was divided into three estates with their own status and role to play in the country. The First Estate involved religious people in the country. The Second Estate involved all the nobles. These two estates had many privileges, and were the wealthiest group, but were only a small piece of the entire population. The Third Estate was everyone else in the country: the peasants, poor city dwellers, and the “middle class”. The Third Estate was the largest group, and had little to no power, even though it was the largest group. In order to pay off national debts, Louis XVI increased taxes in the Third Estate, which impacted many of their lives. Because of the taxes, industry started to lag, and there were bread shortages in many places. They barely had any food and had to live of bread. King Louis XVI was a bad king and the people had every right to hate him and his wife. The people didn’t have......

As a result of this revolution there many effects , immediate and long term. The immediate effects were the declaration of rights of man, abolishing of olds reign, execution of king and queen, the reign of terror, and war and forming of the citizen-army. The long term effects were the rise of Napoleon, spread of revolutionary ideas, growth of nationalism, and the conservative reaction. The contributing factors to the French Revolution was the economic crisis in France. The French government had undergone economic crises, resulting from the long wars waged during the reign of Louis XIV, the losses incurred in the French and Indian War, and increased indebtedness arising from loans to the American colonies during the American Revolution. The American Revolution showed that they got economical and political freedom from Britain. This liberalism sparked many revolutions in Europe ,but in France the ideas of the Enlightenment and liberalism were put to their fullest test. The French people wanted rights and would later get these. Another reason was that the old regime was ineffective and it abused its power. The immediate causes of the French Revolution were that the...

Industrial Revolution

...Why Did The Industrial Revolution Happen First in Britain? The industrial Revolution began in Great Britain almost 250 years ago, in the 1760s. Within a half century it started to spread, first to northwestern Europe and the newly formed United States. The Industrial Revolution consisted of the application of new sources of power to the production process, achieved with transmission equipment necessary to apply this power to manufacturing which involved an increased scale of human organization that facilitated specialization and coordination at pre-industrial levels groupings rarely contemplated. The key invention in Europe’s industrial revolution was the steam engine, which harnessed the energy potential of coal. Later, the industrial revolution also used electric and internal combustion motors and petroleum as well as coal. This revolution, progressively introduced steam or other power to the production process and steadily increased the proportion of the process accomplished by equipment without direct human guidance. The organizational facet of the industrial revolution was initially symbolized by the factory, but the organizational principles spread beyond the factory itself. The two central features of industrialization were the revolution in technology and organization of production, which yielded one clear result of a great increase in the total of goods and individual worker’s output. The revolutionary quality of industrialization is particularly obvious in the......

Industrial Revolution

...The Industrial Revolution and its Impact The Industrial Revolution has been viewed as one of the most influential events to occur in the history of modern society.  The invention of new machinery items reduced manual labor. Tasks were performed more efficiently causing increased output of products or work performed in less time. The impact of the Industrial Revolution on the world was that it catapulted the world economy into an almost frenzy like state in which people had access to a much wider variety of goods and services offered to them by businesses.  The impact that this event had on the worker’s life was not necessarily a good or bad thing, however.  With the advent of new, more efficient technology, workers were able to more easily accomplish certain tasks that would have taken them a much longer time to complete before the Industrial Revolution, however there were some serious negative side effects of such a quick influx of technology.  With such new practices and ideas put into the workplace, many workers were expected to be as efficient as the new ways of producing a product or service, and as a result, their health and safety were often overlooked.  The Industrial Revolution has had lasting effects on the entire population in almost every facet of our lives, as both consumers and workers, and will always be remembered as one of the driving forces behind the way in which the modern economies of the world have been achieved by developed nations. Life would be......

The Good Food Revolution

...Asri King The Good Food Revolution This event was held on October 27, 2014. I went to this event because I read Will Allen’s book for our common reading presentation project in PHA 109 and I liked his book because it motivated people to not giving up on their dreams. The speaker of this event was Will Allen. He was happy to be in SDSU and had an opportunity to meet with wonderful students. He mentioned that this generation is the one who would change the food systems and created a better living system in America. Will gave speeches across the United States and throughout the world. He created Growing Power Inc. in 1995 and he is also the CEO of this company. Besides farming, Will also had passion for basketball. He became an outstanding basket player when he was in high school and he continued to play basketball until he was 28. In 2008, he received the “Genius Grant” from The John D and Katherine T. McArthur foundation for his work in urban farming. Upon his retirement from basketball, Will moved to his wife’s home town, Milwaukee. He wanted to create local food systems and provided good, fresh, healthy, and affordable food to the communities. Food that they consumed in Milwaukee mostly came from thousands of mile away. He purchased 40 acres of land and built greenhouses and hoop houses. In his greenhouses, Will created aquaponic systems; it is a combination growing system between aquaculture, such as fish and hydroponic (plants) in a symbiotic atmosphere. Will Allen......

Fast Food Nutrition: the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

...It would not be a surprise that television, internet, and any other kinds of ads of big fast food companies such as McDonalds® or Subway® have successfully advance their ideas of healthy foods in many of Americans. Yet all of these wealthy corporations, along with many other smaller companies, have many ways to sell their products. These methods could be underhanded loaded with jargon. Information of simple knowledge overfilled with confusing and sometimes random information that otherwise will be too insignificant for people to put an effort to learning about. There are also times where information is overly simplified and have no real background to make a worthy judgment. Amidst all of the fallacies in the fast food industry, there exist reliable sources of information. In recent years, there has been an increase of connecting ideas of the transformation of fasts foods. Although some arguments claim the reason is one clause over the other, some will divert and stray off topic. They exert random facts to either make the claim reasonable or by overflowing them with sources that seems reliable from authoritative figures. Rabin article “Proximity to Fast Food a Factor in Student Obesity” goes to say: Ninth graders whose schools are within a block of a fast-food outlet are more likely to be obese than students whose schools are a quarter of a mile or more away, according to a study of millions of schoolchildren by economists at the University of California and Columbia......

Culinary Revolution

...The Culinary Revolution was a movement during the late 1960s and 1970s, growing out of the Free Speech Movement,[citation needed] when sociopolitical issues began to profoundly affect the way Americans eat. The Culinary Revolution is often credited to Alice Waters, the owner of Chez Panisse restaurant in Berkeley, California; however, such claims are sometimes contested and the movement attributed to collaborations of other individuals. The mantra of using fresh, local, and seasonal ingredients at Waters's Chez Panisse, as well as other similar "New American cuisine" restaurants, has greatly changed food served in restaurants and at home, thus creating California Cuisine and a broader movement in the cuisine of the United States. Contents   [hide]  * 1 Alice Waters * 2 Chez Panisse * 3 Counter-claim * 4 See also * 5 References * 6 Sources ------------------------------------------------- Alice Waters[edit] Waters developed a new view of the importance of food during her first trip to France in 1965. She began to see that some of her peers deprived themselves of good food. Waters is known to believe that "It’s not enough to liberate yourself politically, to liberate yourself sexually—you have to liberate all the senses." She believed that eating together was a socially progressive act, one that was under threat from the fifties American—TV, frozen-food culture.[1] Waters introduced to America many foods that today may seem commonplace, such as......

...WEDNESDAY 23RD SEPTEMBER 2015 MORNING DEVOTION. HINDERANCES TO REVOLUTION IN FRIENDSHIPS AND RELATIONSHIPS PART 1 TODAY'S SCRIPTURE."Friends love through all kinds of weather, and families stick together in all kinds of trouble."(Proverbs 17:17 MSG) Friendship is a powerful force that guarantees success! Failure is an orphan. If you know how to keep friends, you will become a success in whatever you do. Your revolution in life is determined by how good you are at making friends and keeping them. If you have a habit of negatively surprising your friends and those you relate with, you will live a lonely life and even God said it is not good for man to be alone. The first thing that destroys friendship is selfishness. Everyone detests selfish people! Selfishness is evident when all you look out for in a friendship or relationship is what you will gain. Friendships do not last when you are selfish. Being a "fair weather" friend is also wrong. The opening scripture says a friend loves at all times; through thick and thin,in bad,good and rough times. A wise man said "a friend in need is a friend indeed"! Do not turn your back on your friends in their dark hours when they need you most. Just like Judas Iscariot betrayed Jesus, betrayal is one of the worst things one can experience from friends . It is devastating to see people you call your friends turnaround and stab you in the back. It is worse when they divulge your secrets and fight you publicly. Today's......

Good Food, Better Service

...Chick-fil-A: Great Food, Better Service. Chicken and the Cost to Growers 
 Chick-fil-A is much more than a restaurant that serves good chicken, it is my sanctuary and a part of who I am. Being welcomed with a smile, as soon as I enter the doors, instantly makes my day better. Chick-fil-A prides itself in taking care of the customer. I am on a first name basis with the breakfast, lunch and dinner shift at my local branch. Chick-fil-A, founded by S. Truett Cathy stays true to its core purpose: “To have a positive influence on all who come in contact with Chick-fil-A” (Cathy 124). Throughout my time with Chick-fil-A I always found this to be true. Chick-fil-A’s quality of food, along with their quality of service, is shifting the industry of fast food all together by emphasizing how important living out the vision of your company is. Lessons and Principles S. Truett Cathy grew up watching his mother put a lot of effort into ensuring every one she cooked for would be incredibly satisfied with the meal (Cathy 15). At a young age Truett was in charge of building a newspaper route. He found that the key to his paper route success was “to take care of the customer” (Cathy 24). To do this he had to deliver the papers regardless of the circumstances (Cathy 24). Truett also found that “it’s always easier to keep a customer than to replace one”, and therefore he would treat every single customer like the most important one (Cathy 26). These two lessons influenced his......

The Neolithic Revolution

...Neolithic Revolution” Contents: 1. Introduction…………………………………………………………………………..3 2. Literature review……………………………………………………………………..4 3. Neolithic revolution…………………………………………………………………..6 4. Conclusion…………………………………………………………………………….9 5. Bibliography…………………………………………………………………………10 Introduction The most important technological development ever to occur in human history was the domestication of plants (agriculture) and animals (pastoralism). Together these developments are called the Neolithic Revolution. To understand how the Neolithic Revolution occurred it is necessary to understand the economic system it replaced. Until the Neolithic, and in most areas for a long time after, all humans engaged in an economic activity called "hunting and gathering". This system is called "food extraction" as opposed to "food production" by agriculture and pastoralism. This period, which occurred between 12,000 and 8,000 years ago, brought along many profound changes to human society and culture, including the creation of cities and permanent dwellings, labor specialization, the baking of bread, personal property, more complex hierarchical social structures, non-agricultural crafts, slavery, the state, official marriage, personal inheritance, and more. I’ve chosen this topic because we can’t imagine our life, if there were not such a revolution. What would we be without the Neolithic Revolution? I think without the Neolithic Revolution I......
