Journal of Flour Baby I bought my flour baby girl the first day of this project, I’ve been thinking a lot about what should I name her, and finally I decided that I want to name her Muamua Li, you might think this name is kind of weird. The reason why I named her this is because I think muamua is so cute and can represent that we are in an intimate relationship, and for the last name is Li is because one of my favorite star’s last name is Li so I think of put them together. I was so excited to have a flour baby around, it make me feel like I’m a real mother and I have to treat it seriously and care about it. So I found my friend Fiona and borrowed a pretty baby clothe to dress up Muamua, and it makes me think of that maybe in the future, if I’m really having a baby girl I would dress up her like a princess as I dress up Muamua. But my enthusiasm end at the second weeks, I start to feel that to carry a flour baby around is a big trouble. I had to carry her everywhere I went, even the bathroom. To be honest, she is not light, I feel so annoying when I had to carry her, and in fact I don’t like to carry things since I was a child, so when I need to carry things my families and friends would help me but at this time I need to carry her around with no help. I’ve think about just leave her in the locker so it won’t be lost and I don’t need to carry her around. But this is not gonna work. Honestly, I do lost her a few times, but not at school, I usually lost her at home, because I always put her on the sofa right after I walking the door instead of put her carefully in my bedroom. So if my parents saw that I put her in the sofa as I always do, they will hide it to remind me that I can’t just leave her anywhere. And by the way mom really likes Muamua too, she said when she sees Muamua she will think of me as a baby. She shows me how she holding me when I’m a baby, how she play with me and how she talks with me, even though I don’t know how to respond her at that time. I told my mom that I feel so tired to have a four baby, and she says it’s much harder to have an actual baby. Now I can understand how my mom felt when I was born. We have to carry the baby about four weeks, and today is the last day. Anyways, to having a baby is too far for me, but I love this project, it taught me a lot, and now I understand how hard to get through it.

...Introduction The purpose of this report is to analyze and illustrate the geographical origins of eragrostis tef along with details of its global dispersion. The common name of the crop in Ethiopia is tef. It was chosen for its cultural significance and it’s importance Background In Ethiopia, about 4.9 million acres of land is devoted to its production every year. From 2003-2005 production statistics indicated that tef accounted for about 29% of the land and 20% of the gross grain production of all major cereal cultivation in the country (National Research Council). Eragrostis tef belongs to the grass family Poaceae, and is species of Eragrostis. It contains about 350 species and tef is the only cultivated cereal (Seyfu). Its name tef is originated from the Amharic word yate-tef-ah, which means, “lost”. Since the grains are so small they are easily misplaced (Kloman). It is the world’s smallest food grain and is as small as a grain of sand. It also has quite similar traits to other grains such as quinoa and millet. Tef grows anywhere from 30 to 120 cm in height, with slim stems and long, narrow, smooth leaves. It is a loose or compact panicle. The really small grains are 1.5 mm long, and there are about 2,700 seeds in a gram (Seyfu). The plant uses a Carbon 4 photosynthesis, which uses light efficiently while having low moisture demands. This gives the plant the ability to stand high heat and bright lighting therefore...

Thegrowingproblemwithobisity

...The Growing Problem with Obesity One of the biggest health problems that face America’s is the increasing number of obese people. Obesity has surpassed smoking as the number one cause of health risks in America. With the number of obese people growing by the day something has to be done soon. Many people know and understand that alcohol, cigarettes, and drugs are bad for us and should not be used, but few people know or realize that food could be just as damaging. Food is just like water, we need it to survive, but if it is used in excess it could be very damaging or deadly to the human body. America and the world have been getting larger and larger over the last thirty to forty years which has lead to health problems and will lead to decrease in life expectancy. So what has caused this shift from normal body fat to excess body fat? Many people believe that the increase in the world’s body fat is due to fast food and lack in exercise. Although these factors may be true there is more to that than one would think. Fast food and possessed foods are a main contributor to excess body fat as Andrew Martin writes in an article “Hardee’s restaurants recently scrapped almost its entire menu to focus on hefty sandwiches called Thickburgers--including the Double Bacon Cheese Thickburger, weighing in at two-thirds of a pound and 1,148 calories” (Martin, 2003, para. 1). This is just one example, of a burger that is more than half the recommended 2000 calories that a person......

Soya Milk

...Chapter 1 THE PROBLEM AND ITS SCOPE Introduction Soymilk is a popular dairy alternative in the west, and it has long been traditional in beverage in China, Japan and other parts of Asia. Some people drink soy milk because they are lactose intolerant sensitive. Soymilk is a healthy drink containing the essential nutrients and phytochemicals. Products made with soy, including soy milk, contain chemicals known as isoflavones. These molecules are potent antioxidants that can help protect the body from dangerous molecules known as reactive oxygen species. Isoflavones are also interesting because they have a chemical structure that is similar to estrogen, reports the Harvard School of Public Health, which is why they are called phytoestrogens. In theory, these isoflavones may be able to have a similar effect on the body as naturally produced estrogen. Soy milk, have a low-glycemic index value. Glycemic index, or GI, is a numerical system that measures the amount of sugar in a particular food. Soy foods are digested and absorbed slowly, which means your body converts them to sugar and absorbs them into your bloodstream gradually. This gradual release of sugar helps minimize blood sugar swings. Consumption of soy foods may also increase production of insulin in patients with type 1 diabetes, according "Modern Nutrition in Health and Disease," by Maurice Edward and Moshe Shike. Eating food is how you provide fuel to your body to stay alive. Food is digested by a complex system......

Nestle Expanding Globally

...Nestlé began in Switzerland in the mid 1860s when founder Henri Nestlé created one of the first baby formulas. Henri realized the need for a healthy and economical product to serve as an alternative for mothers who could not breastfeed their babies. Mothers who were unable to breastfeed often lost their infants to malnutrition. Henri’s product was a carefully formulated mixture of cow’s milk, flour and sugar. Nestlé’s first product was called Farine Lactée (“cornflour gruel” in French) Henri Nestlé. The product was first used on a premature baby who could not tolerate his mother’s milk or other alternative products of that time. Doctors gave up on treating the infant. Miraculously the baby tolerated Henri’s new formula and it provided the nourishment that saved his life. Within a few years the first Nestlé product was marketed in Europe. In 1874, Jules Monnerat purchased the Nestlé Company. Nestlé developed its own condensed milk to contend with its competitor, the Anglo-Swiss Condensed Milk Company. The Anglo-Swiss Condensed Milk Company made products like cheese and instant formulas. The two companies merged in 1905, the year after Nestlé added chocolate to its line of foods. The newly formed Nestlé and Anglo-Swiss Milk Company had factories in the United States, Britain, Spain and Germany. Soon the company was full-scale manufacturing in Australia with warehouses in Singapore, Hong Kong and Bombay. Most production still took place in Europe....
