Regular mango production in the country usually starts with inducing the trees in September and ends in the harvesting of fruits in March. The volume of mango harvest at this time is usually huge, and can result on oversupply and low buying prices. It has been observed for almost 20 years that buyers from far Luzon come to Agusan to look for a supply of mangoes. So, farmers in Agusan Del Norte decided to venture into off-season production, which usually starts between the ends of April to May. The good thing about this off-season production is they can demand for the high price especially during lean months when mango supply is low and the demand is high. Although it’s a good strategy, shifting from regular to off-season production does not come easy. Farmers need financial capital for chemicals as well as available equipment, not only for taking advantage of favorable weather but also for meeting volume requirements from traders. Lack of financing becomes the major constraint of Agusan farmers into off-season production but through the help of DA-MRDP they provide financial assistance to the farmers to boosts the production of off-season mango. The used of sumpit(a manual spray) was now replaced by using power spray that enable to induce 15 trees per day. Off-season production has provided GMPA not just the best option to improve their income but also the opportunity to expand their market. Barangay Gosoon is now known as a producer of off-season mangoes.

Sentence Fragments

...Fragments are incomplete sentences. The next few examples are not sentences, but word groups that are incomplete sentences (fragments). 1. After Starbucks Coffee opened. Several local coffee shops went out of business. 2. Several young people are learning old-fashioned dances. Such as ballroom dancing for the Nutcracker ballet. 3. The woman always wears pant suits and heels to the office. Then takes off her heels and jacket by noon. 1. After Starbucks Coffee opened.

After You, My Dear Alphonse!

...essay – After You, My Dear Alphonse! The novel is written by Shirley Jackson in 1943. “After You, My Dear Alphonse” shows how the 1940’s racist attitudes were - (and in all probability still are) - influenced by children’s parents. It does really show, how stereotypical the view was regarding African-American’s. The novel is taking place in Mrs. Wilson’s house, where she just finished baking gingerbread. She heard her son Johnny arrives, but a second voice appeared. It is an African American boy, named Boyd, and he is a bit smaller than Johnny. He is carrying kindling wood, and Mrs. Wilson reprimands Johnny for not helping his friend. They invited him for lunch, and Mrs. Wilson inquires about Boyd’s family with hesitation. She inquires about the profession of Boyd’s father, and furthermore, she started questioning about, why Boyd’s mother does not work. Underlying, Johnny is chastising his own mother, when he pointed that she does not work either. Mrs. Wilson offered Boyd secondhand clothing, but Boyd declines politely the offer. Mrs. Wilson denies Boyd any more gingerbread and chastises him for being ungrateful. She insists that she is only disappointed, as Boyd is fully aware of the fact that she is mad. “After You, My Dear Alphonse!” is operating with a couple of themes. The main themes are Racism and prejudices. It is emphasized in the text, where Mrs. Wilson says plenty of narrow things, which are mentioned below by some examples. “What about all your other...

Goldilocks And The Three Bear Analysis

...really like how you focused your post on similarities rather than differences. The discussion among my education classes seem to always focus on the cultural differences rather than similarities. I have often wondered if too much focus on the cultural difference is only creating a bigger divide between individuals of differing cultures. What do you think? Furthermore, you explain how to identify common human similarities found in folktales, such as mercy, love, and courage. I really like the books you have chosen, especially the Polar Express. Jeremy, The Gingerbread man and Peter Pan are popular classics that children have enjoyed for years. They are enjoyable books to read. Your post discusses the important value of pleasure. You did a great job outlining how pleasurable the experience is when reading a traditional or folktale story. Children who are exposed to pleasurable readings, like the Gingerbread man, are more likely to look forward to reading another book. The book Peter Pan captures the minds of its reader. Because of books like Peter Pan, young readers learn that books are a form of entertainments and adventure. Great Post! Ebony, Your post brings out the importance of humor. You discuss the importance of laughing at one’s self as well as at others. This is so true. Life is to serious and it is nice to read a book that brings about laughter. I have never heard of the book, Snoring Beauty before. I will have to look that one up. It sounds like...

My Favorite Dessert: Phatty Cakes

...In February of 2008, I visited a tiny restaurant by the name of Cakes&Ale. Accompanied by local Chefs and Mixologists, I had no idea what I was in store for. We ordered several small plates to share, beers, and a few desserts. Amongst the desserts was a small plate with 3 cream-filled cookies called “Phatty Cakes”, that to me, resembled little debbie's oatmeal pies. Skeptical, I picked one up and took a bite. Contrary to my preconceived notions, this little delicious treat turned out to be a marscarpone filled gingerbread whoopie pie. Soft gingerbread cookies with a sweet yet savory marscarpone filling, that almost melts in your mouth. After my initial visit, I would visit Cakes&Ale solely for the infamous “Phatty Cakes”. At 3 cakes for $6, I would stock up buying over a dozen little treats. And no, I never bothered to share, nor did I bother to tell anyone where I got them; they were truly my little secret. After years of consuming Phatty Cakes, I had to know who was behind the tiny delicious treat. Pastry Chef, Cynthia Wong was the mastermind behind this decadent little treat. “The 36-year-old Southerner has held a lot of jobs in the Atlanta food industry. She was the production manager for Via Elisa Fresh Pasta, a food stylist for the TBS program “Dinner & a Movie” and even a food reviewer for Creative Loafing. But she has found her metier at Billy Allin’s Cakes & Ale restaurant.”( Kessler 2010) In 2011, the Pastry Chef behind my favorite dessert, took her recipe...

Hansel takes a slice of bread and leaves a trail of bread crumbs to follow home. However, after they are once again abandoned, the children find that birds have eaten the crumbs and they are lost in the woods. After days of wandering, they follow a beautiful white bird to a clearing in the woods and discover a large cottage built of gingerbread and cakes, with window panes of clear sugar. Hungry and tired, the children begin to eat the rooftop of the candy house, when the door opens and a "very old woman" emerges and lures them inside, with the promise of soft beds and delicious food. They comply, unaware that their hostess is a wicked witch who waylays children to cook and eat them. The next morning, the witch locks Hansel in an iron cage in the garden and forces Gretel into becoming a slave. The witch feeds Hansel regularly to fatten him up, but Hansel cleverly offers a bone he found in the cage (presumably a bone from the witch's previous captive) and the witch feels it, thinking it is his finger. Due to her blindness, she is fooled into thinking Hansel is still too thin to eat. After weeks of this, the witch grows impatient and decides to eat Hansel, "be he fat or lean." She prepares the oven for Hansel, but decides she is hungry enough to eat Gretel, too. She coaxes Gretel to the open the...
