Moringa is also an excellent “brain food” because it is a natural source of many of the essential brain nutrients, including vitamin C, vitamin E, omega 3, caratenoids and much much more. One of the many benefits of taking a daily regimen of Moringa is increased clarity and mental focus. Moringa contains zinc, which supports brain connectivity between the right and left hemispheres of the brain. Additionally, Moringa aids in neurotransmission due to the 18 amino acids it contains. Plus, Moringa capsules, tea or extract makes it easy to incorporate Moringa into your daily routine. In addition to a balanced diet with brain boosting nutrients, daily physical exercise and regular brain workouts, sleep, a positive social environment and controlled levels of stress also contribute to brain health.

Not only has it provided food, shelter, water filtration, and medicine, but it may also be a source for fuel in the future.9 Moringa is being considered as a potential source for biodiesel (plant based fuel that diesel engines can run off of). This plant grows easily in tropical areas and can easily produce high quantities of biomass for fuel. This can be done without compromising leaf harvest, thus the same Moringa plant can be cultivated for both fuel and as a nutritional supplement for the natural marketplace simultaneously. It is therefore considered a superior feedstock to jatropha (Jatropha sp.) which is commonly grown for biofuel.9 Antioxidant activity - According to the analysis, the powdered leaves of the Moringa tree (which is the way most people consume Moringa) contains 46 types of antioxidants.

...the major conclusions of the Hawthorne studies was that workers' attitudes are associated with productivity. Another was that the workplace is a social system and informal group influence, could have a powerful effect on individual behavior. A third was that the style of supervision is an important factor in increasing workers' job satisfaction. The studies also found that organizations should take steps to help employees in adjusting to organizational life by encouraging collaborative systems between employees and management. Douglas McGregor had two theories by which to view employee motivation, these theories are known as Theory X and Theory Y. Both assume that the manager's role is to organize resources, including people, to best benefit the company. However, beyond this commonality, they're quite different. Theory X leadership assumes the following: work is inherently distasteful to most people and they will attempt to avoid work whenever possible, most people are not ambitious, have little desire for responsibility, and prefer to be directed, most people have little aptitude for creativity in solving organizational problems, motivation occurs only at the physiological and security levels of Maslow's Needs Hierarchy, and that most people are self-centered. As a result, they must be closely controlled and often pushed to achieve organizational objectives, most people resist change and that most people are gullible and unintelligent. Essentially, theory x assumes that...

...ESTABLISHING A COMPENSATION AND BENEFITS PACKAGE LEONARD ANTHONY 3085841 Questions I would have to consider before establishing compensation and benefits package are; what is the purpose of the business I am in? Is it a high turnover industry? Is the industry targeted employees targeted for short-term employment? Am I in the peoples business or is my business predicated on the performance of employees? Once those questions have been answered, I would be able to establish a compensation and benefits package. For this paper I will take the later that my industry or field does experience turnover but it consist of employees that are committed to the company and looking for long term employment. The first things I would have to consider are my direct (cash) and indirect (benefits) compensation package. My direct compensation package would consist of salary, hourly wages and bonus. Factors that would affect my direct compensation package are supply and demand, labor unions and the company’s ability to pay and its productivity and government regulations according to (Montana & Charnov, 2000, p 222). Supply and Demand dictates the availability of qualified people within the area to do the job. If the economy is doing well then their will be great competition in attracting qualified candidates to do the job, this means management would have to pay a higher dollar amount to qualified candidates. If the market is slow then there will be a surplus of qualified and......

...Employee Benefits Employee benefits is very important benefit that every employee should be looking at when it comes time to search for a job. Many companies offer a lot of employee benefits, however; there are some that are more important than others. When the organization is developing and planning their benefit package, there is information that is very important for the planning process and then there is other information that is not as important when it comes to the planning process. The most important information when it comes to planning process for employee benefits would be compensation(2014). You have to have a good compensation package for your employees based on their experience, education, and knowledge. When employees are searching for jobs, one of the first things they want to know is how much they will be making per an hour or if it is salary, the employee will want to know how much their salary is going to be. So that would be one of the most important things to consider when planning for the process of employee benefits. The second most important thing when a company is planning for employee benefits would be medical insurance. Most companies offer health insurance, dental insurance, vision insurance, and prescription coverage. Now a days, every person has to have health insurance due to the Obama care so that is why the medical insurance is one of the most important things to plan when planning the employee’s benefits process. Medical insurance......

Moringa

...Malunggay benefits: Moringa commonly known as Malunggay in the Philippines is a wonderful tree known all over the world and referred by scientists as a “miracle tree.” Malunggay has been promoted by the World Health Organization (WHO) for the past 20 years as a low-cost health enhancer in poor countries around the globe. Yet, despite its remarkable medicinal value, it is still relatively unknown. “The Moringa Tree” by Dr. Martin L. Price, he cites the benefits of moringa leaf extract as a plant growth hormone, the moringa shoots as green manure to enrich agricultural lands, moringa leaves as livestock feed because of its rich high protein content, moringa seed powder and the fresh cake left over from oil extraction as treatment for turbid water, moringa as a good live fence tree with its bark used to make mats and rope, and the compound in the flowers and roots of the moringa tree, pterygospermin, as a powerful antibiotic and antifungal remedy. Tender malunggay leaves also reduce phlegm and are administered internally for scurvy and catarrhal conditions, while the flowers are used to heal inflammation of the tendons and abscesses. Unripe pods of malunggay are also reported to prevent intestinal worms, while the fruit also prevents eye disorders. Other studies have shown that eating malunggay fruits can lead to higher semen count. This is good news for men who are having problems in siring children. They cannot count on the malunggay to cork its magic on them. Because of......

...Infusions Handmade cold process soap and more Infusing Oils With Herbs: Moringa Soap I have been using herbal infusions for soaps since I began making soap. Using herbs as natural colorants is challenging as depending on the type of infusion you choose the finished soap can go from a great success to a downright disaster. I cannot forget how the color of the hibiscus infusion went from magnificent ruby to scary blue in the lye solution and to a nice but not so interesting beige in the finished soap. Another “accident” was  using green tea powder. Adding it to the raw soap caused the batter to turn muddy (dirty may provide a better description though) brown and the finished soap was a dreadfully oily thing which I only kept to cure because of my husband’s advice to never give up on a batch of soap. Grateful I listened to him because, three months later, that dreadful log of oily something became one of the best soaps I have ever used. Since those (and a few other) disastrous trials with herbs I have done a lot of research and have come to the point of feeling confident about what I can achieve with certain herbs depending on the way of infusing them and using them in soap. Yet, with the great variety of botanicals out there, there is always a new herb to try and this time I am using moringa. I received a package of moringa powder from Silvia at SoapJam a couple of months ago and almost immediately decided that I would try infusing some oil with part of the......

Moringa Oleifera

...Moringa's health benefits Antioxidant activity - According to analysis, the powdered leaves of the moringa tree (which is the way most people consume moringa) contains 46 types of antioxidants. One serving, in fact, contains 22 percent of our recommended daily intake (RDI) of vitamin C, one of the most important antioxidants on Earth, and a whopping 272 percent of our RDI of vitamin A. Antioxidants help to neutralize the devastating impact of free radicals, thereby guarding us from cancer and degenerative diseases such as macular degeneration and cystic fibrosis. Rich in amino acids - The leaves of the moringa tree contain 18 amino acids, eight of which are essential amino acids, making them a "complete" protein - a rarity in the plant world. Indeed, moringa's protein content rivals that of meat, making it an excellent source of protein for vegetarians and vegans. Protein is, of course, needed to build muscle, cartilage, bones, skin and blood and is also needed to produce enzymes and hormones. Calcium and magnesium - One serving of moringa leaves provides us with approximately 125 percent of our RDI of calcium and 61 percent of our RDI of magnesium. These two trace minerals work in synergy; while calcium is needed to build strong bones and teeth, we also need magnesium to help us absorb it. Since moringa contains generous quantities of both, it is especially good at guarding us from osteoporosis and other bone conditions. Extensive nutrient......

The benefits exceeded those of similar or larger companies.The original package offered Complete Medical, 3 week vacation plus all official Holidays paid, plus other non official Holidays, besides the company included five sick days that could be used or paid at the end of the year. Also the company offered a generous bonus at the end of the year (Martinez, 2010). The Medical covered 100% of the premiums for the employee , and his/her spouse and 50% on children- all with $500.00 deductible plan, and the company would cover the $500.00 deductible ( Martinez, 2010). When the cost of medical insurance exploded, Food Process and Control held on the same benefits until a couple of years later that was not affordable, so they needed to re- structure the benefit plan, especially because at this time they were looking at more employees and that was really affecting the cost in to the company (Martinez, 2010). To cut costs Food Process and Control reduced the coverage of spouse and children to only 50%, a couple of years later Food Process and Control was forced to eliminate our portion of the $500.00 deductible and change the plan to a $1000.00 deductible to reduce the escalating costs. As for dental insurance Food Process and Control has never offered dental insurance to its employees. Now its time for a re-structure the medial and dental benefits at FPC’s and that is why I am choosing......

...Question 10-3 Page 403 As mentioned in the text, its is undeniable that their will be a growing number of older workers in the workplace, older workers will play a important role in the labor market in the future. This is a subject, which organizations have taken into great consideration for the future of their business. As stated by Bill Albright, Director of Quality of Work/Life and Benefits, MITRE. “If large numbers of our older workers all left at one time, our company would experience a significant loss of intellectual capital as well as the social capital connected to professional relationships. Furthermore, our experienced workers have institutional knowledge that is critical to our clients.” Employee benefits and management practices have historically been designed with the assumption that older workers would seek leisure between the ages of 59 and 65, and that younger workers would have developed in sufficient numbers to replace the graying workforce. Clearly, there are not sufficient numbers. Organizations that have recognize the impact of the loss of Boomers to companies and potentially to the economy are probably asking, "What can we do to proactively address the needs of our workers over 50?" Being able to answer this question has been baffling organizations, but taking proactive steps towards being able to maintain their aging workforce is critical. Organizations should consider that older workers are willing to work different schedules; serve as......
