“What does Lara Croft do in her spare time?” This burning question has been the cause for many sleepless nights among men and teenage males. “Plan to raid a tomb?” you ask? No. “Polish her guns?” Sorry, Tomb Raider was a family film. However you would be getting warmer if you asked something along the lines of “Does she write her on script and then direct it?” To that question the answer would be yes.
Angelina Jolie makes her directorial debut in the film “In the Land of Blood and Honey.” This film is a love story set in the middle of the Bosnian conflict. Which proves that while being a lady, Jolie still knows what men want, action. The movie plays the story of two parties who were romantically engaged before the start of the Bosnian war, and the conflict that arises therein.
“In the Land of Blood and Honey” does not star Angelina Jolie, however it does star a local cast that was actually involved in the Bosnian conflict. “It’s a heavy film.” Jolie said. The movie was also shot on location in both English and the local language known as BHS. Early screenings of the film have been the cause of much debate within the Bosnian community. Some saying “Too soon Angelina, Too soon.” Others defending Jolie by stating, “Its about time Eastern Europe got some commerce.” But most were just upset by a story that told of a love affair with a woman that was engaged to a soldier who was oppressing her people. Jolie has this to say about the early screenings. “You become very surprised because you think it’s this, and they say it’s definitely a film about that. We tried a few about that, we tried a few. None of them have worked.” “In the Land of Blood and Honey” opens on December 23rd in select theaters.

Airborne Honey

...Interview Q&A   I. Why did Emart choose to import Manuka honey? a. In recent years, consumers have been increasingly aware of the quality of the honeys they are buying in the market, and they are increasingly demanding quality and credibility. Because of this, New Zealand’s Manuka honey has been gaining in popularity, and we wanted to be able to give our customers a high quality, healthy honey like Manuka at affordable prices. b. Before Emart imported Manuka Honey, Korean consumers couldn’t buy affordable Manuka Honey in any supermarkets.   II. So why did Emart choose to import from Airborne Honey as its first Manuka Honey? a. We chose Airborne Honey because of their credibility in two main areas: i. Airborne Honey is New Zealand’s oldest honey company at 102 years old. ii. Airborne Honey has a great quality control system, where they focus on 3 specific points: 1. They test exactly how much pollen is in every batch, and guarantee all honeys meet international CODEX standards (UN FAO/WHO guidelines). 2. Airborne Honey uses a patented system that produces undamaged, natural honeys with extremely low heat damage. 3. Airborne Honey has a very detailed traceability system, where they can tell customers exactly where their honey came from---and pinpoint it on a map of New Zealand a. For example, instead of saying a general location, such as “Your honey came from the Seoul area of Korea, Airborne could say that this particular jar of honey came from beehives on the backside of the......

Sweet as Honey

...Jennimar Mendez Mendez1 Mr. Stehle English 098-108 April 9, 2013 Sweet as Honey Many will agree that Facebook is much sweeter than Myspace. I had my first taste of Facebook a few years ago, and just like honey. It sticks to anyone who enters the site. I was addicted to the games almost immediately, I found myself logging in and out nine times a day. I enjoyed the games, posting my pictures for comments by friends and looking at what they were posting themselves; a new hobby for me was in full effect. It was great being able to do these things and more on Facebook, but the best part was being able to type in my daily status. It felt great knowing my list of friends were paying attention to what I had to say, especially since I was ignored before Facebook existed. I enjoyed typing “good morning my facelookerz” or “workbound gotta make that paper.” Facebook was my therapy; the second I would log on, the problems in my daily life were completely blocked . Everything was great--until I had the desire to locate classmates from my childhood. I wanted to locate classmates who attended Alexander Burger J.H.S. in New York with me. It was aggravating how much time was spent trying to locate them; there were at least two-hundred students ...

Catanduanes: Land of the Howling

...Culture The Land of the Howling... Culture is the totality of people’s lifestyles and life stories. It summarizes one’s place’s history and reflects its civilization. It is an identity. There is no place without culture; there is no society without culture. Without it, there is no existence; no stories to share to future generations. Catanduanes, a small kidney-shaped island in the Pacific, abounds with a conglomeration of folkways and mores which constitute its rich culture. Some of these stories are commendable while others are dishonourable to some extent. Catanduanes has been known as the “Land of the Howling Winds” because of the many strong tropical cyclones that visit it every year and leave it devastated and desolated like a lover forsaken by a beloved. But aside from this epithet affixed to our province which implies its geographical condition and location, are there still other words we can attach to the phrase “Land of the Howling...” which in one way or another will help other people imagine and understand what our province really is? Well, maybe we just need to try. Land of the Howling Pigs and Drunkards Percy Bysshe Shelley in his “Ode to the West Wind” wrote, “O trumpet of the Prophecy, If winter comes, can spring be far behind?’. Cirilo Bautista, that celebrated Filipino poet, wrote in one of his essays, “If summer comes, can teacher seminars be far behind?”. I, on the other hand ask, “If summer comes, can fiestas be far behind?” This is the......

...Blood is very important to our bodies for many reasons; it carries oxygen to our vital organs, as well as important vitamins and minerals to other parts of the body. It also helps to regulate the PH balance as well as our bodies’ temperature. But most importantly, it carries white blood cells which are very important for our immune system. If we have problems with our blood supply, we can develop anemia or leukemia, and this may affect how our bodies function. Worse yet, if not getting it properly taken care of, it may result in a host of complications or even death. Plasma is a yellow liquid form portion of our blood that replaces easily thru out our bodies, consisting of water and proteins, and that helps control infections as well as bleeding. They are responsible for carrying oxygen thru out our body. Platelets are responsible for making our blood clot, which enables us from bleeding to death. Clotting when it dries out produces scabbing which aids in the healing process. Leukocytes or white blood cells are germ fighting cells, and there are two types: phagocytes (they help get rid of germs) and lymphocytes (which act as memory cells that can recall their last attackers). White blood cells can be found in places like the spleen, the bone marrow, and it has a sponge gel like consistency. Lily: Her poor eating habits are creating some serious health issue.

Honey & Mumford

...Reflections of two pragmatists: A critique of Honey and Mumford's learning styles Caple, Jim, Martin, Paul. Industrial and Commercial Training. Guilsborough: 1994. Vol. 26, Iss. 1; pg. 16, 5 pgs Abstract (Summary) It is argued that Honey and Mumford's (1982) contribution in analyzing learning styles has been productive in focusing educators' and trainers' attention on individual differences in learning situations. Beyond this, though, it is felt that their theoretical approach is not altogether helpful and is at times confused and confusing. It is also observed that their means of identifying individual styles may be flawed. If measurements of personality are required, there are more valid and reliable instruments available. If it is required to find out more about trainees' preferred ways of learning, why not simply ask the trainees' themselves to consider some key questions, such as: 1. What is learning? 2. What learning experiences have been beneficial to you? 3. Do you tend to avoid certain ways or opportunities for learning? 4. How can others best be of help to you in enabling you to enhance your learning and self-development? By exploring these, and related, themes with facilitators it is likely that trainees will develop clarity in terms of what works for them. This approach may be seen to be sufficient and perhaps preferable to Honey and Mumford's approach, which is quasi-scientific and unnecessarily complex. » Jump to indexing (document details) Full Text ......

Honey Care Africa

...Honey Care Africa is an interesting trio of articles in which we learn how one man can make a significant difference to an industry and an entire country. The authors of Honey Care Africa describe the successes, failures and overwhelming challenges that Farouk Jiwa had to overcome to transform the culture of the African people so that they may become self-sufficient and successful farmers in the beekeeping industry. The history of farming and more specifically beekeeping in Africa was characterized by corruption, inefficiencies, and limited resources available to the farmers. Additionally, many farmers had to wait long periods of time before ever getting paid for their products. These difficulties often discouraged them and limited their ability to continue their operation. Farouk Jiwa is the founder and Director of Honey Care Africa. Jiwa established a for-profit business model that focused on assisting African farmers in establishing their own independent beekeeping business. His vision was to establish a profitable company that was also committed to environmental preservation and human development. Jiwa demonstrated a supportive leadership style by looking beyond his own perspective and attempting to see the industry through the eyes of the average African farmer. This leadership style was demonstrated when he asked himself the simple question, “If I was the average farmer in Kenya today with two acres of land, what would stop me from producing honey?” Jiwa......

Honey for Dressing

...experience 7. Clinical tradition 8. Anecdotes FIGURE 1 Source : Jasper M. (2006) Professional Development, Reflection and Decision-Making London Blackwell Publications page 144 I searched for various types of evidence that examined the effectiveness of honey as a wound dressing. I selected honey as it is commercially available and the patient could afford this as a wound dressing. To objectively find appropriate evidence for using honey I conducted searches using Medline, Cumulative Index of Nursing and Allied Health Literature (CINAHL) which are important sources of health research (Hamer and Collinson, 1999), and the Web of Science databases. I also used Department of Health (DH) England database, which revealed links to best evidence in the form of English National Tissue Viability Guidelines (ENTVG 2012) within which, one section refers to alternative therapies. Honey is included among these alternative therapies. Other sourced literature will be used to support my discussion and have been obtained from a variety of professional and healthcare organisations as well as books, journals, government papers, and key documents relevant to the topic. Using such keywords as ‘leg ulcer AND dressings And Honey ‘and similar combinations, the CINAHL database yielded 21 articles of which none was of direct relevance to my question of inquiry. The same search on Medline database yielded 121 articles of which about 3 were of direct relevance. I implemented the same......

...May 5, 2015 Anatomy and Physiology Tell Me About Blood 1. A lower than normal hermatocrit means that a person is anemic. You may have heard your parents say, ‘I think my blood is low”. 2. Lymphopoiesis is the development of lymphocytes, which are which blood cells. Erythropoiesis is the development of erythrocytes, which are red blood cells. Myelopoiesis is the development of myelocytes, which are young blood cells. Granulopoiesis is the haematopoiesis of grandulocytes, which is also a white blood cell, but it is in the cytoplasm. Megakaryocytopoiesis is haematopoiesis of megakaryocytes, which are responsible for the production of blood platelets. 3. Erythropoiesis is the production of red blood cells. The factor that speed up and slow down erythropoiesis is when the kidneys release a factor that changes a blood protein to erythropoietin. This hormone targets the bone marrow where immature precursor cells are induced to synthesize large amounts of hemoglobin, the oxygen protein of red blood cells. Erythroblasts become reticyclocytes, immature red blood cells released into the blood stream where they mature into erythrocytes, full-fledged red blood cells, in one or two days. 4.

Honey Production in India

...Honey Production in India. Introduction Honey and beekeeping have a long history in India. Honey was the first sweet food tasted by the ancient Indian inhabiting rock shelters and forests. He hunted bee hives for this gift of god. India has some of the oldest records of beekeeping in the form of paintings by prehistoric man in the rock shelters. With the development of civilization, honey acquired an unique status in the lives of the ancient Indians. They regarded honey as a magical substance that controlled the fertility of women, cattle, as also their lands and crops. The recent past has witnessed a revival of the industry in the rich forest regions along the sub-Himalayan mountain ranges and the Western Ghats, where it has been practiced in its simplest form. Formation of Honey Honey is produced by bees as a food source. In cold weather or when fresh food sources are scarce, bees use their stored honey as their source of energy. By contriving for bee swarms to nest in artificial hives, people have been able to semidomesticate the insects, and harvest excess honey. The worker bees raise larvae and collect the nectar that will become honey in the hive. Leaving the hive, they collect sugar-rich flower nectar and return. In the hive, the bees use their "honey stomachs" to ingest and regurgitate the nectar a number of times until it is partially digested.] The bees work together as a group with the regurgitation and digestion until the product reaches a desired quality. It...

Honey Bee

...[edit]Micrapis Apis florea and Apis andreniformis are small honey bees of southern and southeastern Asia. They make very small, exposed nests in trees and shrubs. Their stings are often incapable of penetrating human skin, so the hive and swarms can be handled with minimal protection. They occur largely sympatrically though they are very distinct evolutionarily and are probably the result of allopatric speciation, their distribution later converging. Given that A. florea is more widely distributed and A. andreniformis is considerably more aggressive, honey is – if at all – usually harvested from the former only. They are the most ancient extant lineage of honey bees, maybe diverging in the Bartonian (some 40 million years ago or slightly later) from the other lineages, but among themselves do not seem to have diverged a long time before the Neogene.[4] [edit]Megapis There is one recognised species in subgenus Megapis. It usually builds single or a few exposed combs on high tree limbs, on cliffs, and sometimes on buildings. They can be very fierce. Periodically robbed of their honey by human "honey hunters", colonies are easily capable of stinging a human being to death when provoked. Apis dorsata on comb Apis dorsata, the giant honey bee, is native and widespread across most of South and Southeast Asia. Apis dorsata binghami, the Indonesian honey bee, is classified as the Indonesian subspecies of the giant honey bee or a distinct species; in the latter case, A. d.......

Cinammon and Honey Therapy

...Cinnamon and Honey /Whoever thought? Honey is the only food on the planet that will not spoil or rot. It will do what some call turning to sugar. In reality honey is always honey. However, when left in a cool dark place for a long time it will do what I rather call "crystallizing" When this happens I loosen the lid, boil some water, and sit the honey container in the hot water, turn off the heat and let it liquefy. It is then as good as it ever was. Never boil honey or put it in a microwave. To do so will kill the enzymes in the honey. Cinnamon and Honey Bet the drug companies won't like this one getting around. Facts on Honey and Cinnamon: It is found that a mixture of honey and Cinnamon cures most diseases. Honey is produced in most of the countries of the world. Scientists of today also accept honey as a 'Ram Ban' (very effective) medicine for all kinds of diseases. Honey can be used without any side effects for any kind of diseases. Today's science says that even though honey is sweet, if taken in the right dosage as a medicine, it does not harm diabetic patients.
