...to try and make the border of the store more attractive to food stamp households in order to help them make healthier choices. In order to persuade food stamp consumers to the border of the store, Yael Lehmann, the executive director of the Food Trust, says the plan is to stock the shelves with fresher meats, fish, poultry, fruits and vegetables. Employees will be trained on stocking, storing, rotating, and how to keep the shelves appealing to the eye. Personally, I like the idea of fresh fruit and vegetables on the shelves. I think everyone does. Where I shop, I have seen shriveled zucchini. I have seen berries with mold on them. I have seen oranges that have completely lost its shape and color because of negligence from the produce manager and their employees. This is disappointing to anyone who enjoys fresh fruits and vegetables. Produce managers are expected to keep the shelves fully stocked to please their bosses, which ultimately forces them to keep bad food on the shelves because they do not have the stock to replenish the shelves. Any consumer who has food stamps would easily result to buying unhealthier foods if all the store has is old fruits and...

Fruits and Characteristices

...Running Header : Fruits and Characteristics 1 Fruits Christopher Jerry Dr. Kendricks D. Hooker Biology 115 February 18, 2012 Running Header : Fruits and Characteristics 2 Why are some fruits sweet and some sour, whereas others have no specific taste? The taste of a fruit depends on the compounds present in it. Normally a fruit contains the materials like cellulose, proteins, starch, vitamins, certain acids, fructose or sugar. All these materials are found in mixed form inside the fruit and they have different proportions in different fruits. Fruits of sweet taste have more fructose in them whereas the fruits of sour taste have more acids in them. Some fruits are sweet as well as sour in taste like orange, as it has almost equal quantities of fructose and acids in it. Normally, the raw fruits have more acids but on ripening the quantity of acids get decreases and the amount of sugar gets increase. This is the reason that raw mangoes are sour in taste but on ripening they become sweet. Raw bananas have more starch but when the fruit gets ripen, the starch gets converted into fructose. The chemical changes take place inside the fruit during the process of ripening, due to these changes the amount of sugar increases in fruit and it becomes sweet. You will see that even two fruits of same type have different taste like two mangoes or two apples do not have same taste but they are different in taste. The reason behind it is that same fruit has many......

Fruit Sayings

...Essay on Compare And Contrast: Apples And OrangesPeople often use the phrase “comparing apples and oranges” to explain the vast differences between two particular things. While thinking up a topic for a compare and contrast essay I decided that would be an interesting subject. Apples and Oranges are actually very similar in many ways, though they do have their differences as well. In this essay I will explain some of the differences and similarities between these two fruits. The first and probably most obvious similarity is that they are both fruits, and quite popular fruits at that. Both apples and oranges are tasty and are good sources of vitamin C. The FDA recognizes apples and oranges as a full serving of fruit on the food pyramid. Another similarity between these is that they both grow on trees and are generally a round spherical shape with seeds in the center. They are both often packed in lunches or as snacks because they are easy to handle and can last a long time in a refrigerator before going bad. In contrast, apples are usually red or green, and oranges are surprisingly an orange color. Also, apples are crisp and generally sweet, whereas oranges are juicy and sour or tangy. Most people will eat the outer layer on an apple, but the outer layer on an orange is usually peeled off before of it is eaten. Oranges contain calcium, which helps strengthen bones, while apples contain cancer fighting antioxidants called......

My Favorite Fruit

...My Favorite Fruit: The Coconut. There are a plethora of fruits that one can enjoy eating. With such a broad selection of fruits provided to us, there is one in particular that seems to make my taste buds go wild; the coconut. This exotic fruit, only found in the tropics, is the one that is considered to be my favorite of all. It not only has refreshing tasty water on the inside, but also has solid fruit on the inner part of the sphere shaped cover. The particular type of coconut I enjoy eating is the Maypan Coconut. This coconut has a solid surface, which differentiates it from the one that appears to have hair-like elements. To be able to effectively consume this fruit and the water inside the coconut, one must first make sure there is water inside, because if not it will not taste too pleasant. In order to drink the water inside the coconut, you must open a small hole to fit a straw or to drain the water into a cup. After one makes sure there is no water on the inside, you should use a powerful cutting instrument, such as a machete to cut it open in half. However, if this procedure is performed with water still inside, you will make a disorder. Last but not least, if an individual wishes, they may eat the white meat inside by peeling it with a knife, and therefore it will come right off. The texture of the Maypan coconut is hard and solid. It’s so hard that if it were to fall from a tree onto an individual’s head, it may even cause a concussion. Sometimes the surfaces...

Descroption of the Kiwi Fruit

...For the following assignment I have chosen kiwi fruit as my source of concentration and focus. As I started to explore this object, first I have decided to focus on the outer appearance. Just by looking at the kiwi fruit, the shape that I noticed is oval or cylindrical, kind of egg-shaped fruit, a little similar to lemon size, with the two ends on each side. It is also pretty clean and uniform in shape, meaning that it’s not wrinkled or shriveled as I look at it. Skin of the fruit is covered with the thin, short, and fuzzy little hair, almost like it’s wrapped with moss that is of brown color with the dark green layer underneath of it that is evidently flat and plain. The overall color of kiwi is a mixture of brown with dark green. As I grabbed a fruit in order to touch it and hold it, I experienced that the whole fruit is very soft and pleasant due to its hairy texture. I also felt that it is dry and subtle as well, so the fuzz present on the surface of the fruit tends to fall down while touching it. Although it seems pretty soft while holding the kiwi in hands, when I put the fruit closer to my face and touched it with my cheek, I felt a little rough skin of the kiwi fruit. When I held kiwi, I noticed that the fruit itself is massive and heavy; I would say that it was almost like holding an egg. When I squeezed it, it got softer for a moment and automatically came back to its original shape because its stable texture makes that even while pressing on it, the shape stays the...

Strange Fruit

...STRANGE FRUIT AND ITS IMPACT ON THE CIVIL RIGHTS ERA DeVry University Submitted to Professor Scott Gessford December 17, 2014 HUMN 303: Introduction to the Humanities INTRODUCTION Southern trees bear a strange fruit, Blood on the leaves and blood at the root, Black body swinging in the Southern breeze, Strange fruit hanging from the poplar trees. Pastoral scene of the gallant South, The bulging eyes and the twisted mouth, Scent of magnolia sweet and fresh, And the sudden smell of burning flesh! Here is a fruit for the crows to pluck, For the rain to gather, for the wind to suck, For the sun to rot, for a tree to drop, Here is a strange and bitter crop. By Lewis Allan, 1940 These words paint a picture and speak of an unpleasant time in American history, where blatant racism, lynchings and inequalities were committed against African Americans. Strange fruit can be considered a protest song of the pre-civil rights era. Its importance to the movement can be felt in the lyrics of the song paving the way for protest songs of the civil rights era and its impact on the world today. Strange Fruit was composed by Abel Meerpol, a school teacher from the Bronx, NY who wrote a poem under the pseudonym Lewis Allan (Independent Lens, 2003) about the horrors of racism after seeing graphic photos of a lynching of two teenagers, Thomas Shipp and Abram Smith. These teenagers, who were accused of killing a white man, were taken from an Indiana jail and lynched...

Strange Fruit

...Strange Fruit by Billie Holiday Initial reactions to the work This song, by Billie Holiday, was made famous with its dark meaning and the astounding performance that was brought forwards. With nothing more than a fine piano, a few brass instruments, and the haunting pain heard in Ms. Holiday’s voice, this piece of music was truly a gem of modernism. Billie Holiday did an amazing job with the simulation of pure distraught that was easily conveyed to me. The sense of sadness and lamentation is truly genuine and the tone can only be recreated by Lady Day herself. Historical context Holiday’s piece of music was released at the end of the American Great Depression, which resulted from a crash in the stock market, causing a deep depression in the economy for the following ten years to come. During this time, unemployment rates skyrocketed out of control and people began to lose their homes and most of their possessions. This period of time was a clear contrast to the previous decade and the wealth that came from the 1920s. However, this proved to not be a complete detriment to the arts. The music industry had almost arrived at a full collapse, but this era in American history helped pave the way for jazz and blues to become a new light in otherwise dark times (Ward, 2000). Black musicians were arguably some of the most influential people during this time, with men and women like Louie Armstrong, Sarah Vaughn, Duke Ellington, and of course, Billie Holiday herself.

...My Home State Fruit Grown deep down in the south lives the most delicious and incredibly nutritious fruit, the Georgia peach. The peach was originally grown in China. Now, Georgia is home to a peach so rich in antioxidants and full of vitamins. The first peaches were planted in Georgia during the eighteenth century and the industry has flourished ever since.

Down in Georgia, where I was born and raised, is where I was first introduced to the infamous Georgia peach. Peaches were grown nearly everywhere in Georgia; in fact, there were a few peach trees in my backyard. If there was not any trees nearby, you could easily buy them in stores or from a vendor on the side of one of the country roads. On hot summer days after my brother and I would play, a peach was always my snack of choice. I would hop off the swing set and jog down the sandy pathway until I came upon the tall, skinny round trunk of the tree. The peaches were a little further up than I could reach; therefore I would stretch on my tip toes and examine branch by branch until I saw the mother load of all peaches. I would feel through the bright luscious leaves until found just the right peach. When I would bite into its firm yet gentle flesh, sweet juices would drip down my face.

The first time I reading the title of song I was thought about may be this song is singing about a labor working in the plantation or the singer put his life or love story metaphor as “a strange fruit”. But when I start listen the music, I realized I was wrong. The first time I listen to the music, one thing I am sure about is that I can feel the singer’s emotion is so bitter and sad.
