This tool has several recipes, and each one of them has a trigger (“this”) and consequent action (“that”) for joining different applications, for instance, Google+ and Instagram (Coles, 2015). A perfect collection of recipes saves time, and it helps in organizing a company’s online activities. For example, it makes it possible to thank automatically twitter followers for retweets by using the buffers social scheduling app. IFTTT is an important social media tool in a business environment for organization and efficiency both at personal and at group levels. It works in such a way that if an activity takes place in one app, the activity sets off an action in a different app (Coles,2015).For instance sharing a photo in Instagram will automatically cause the same photo to be posted in Facebook, Twitter and many other photos sharing services. There are many ways that IFTTT can be applied in a professional setting. They include scheduling social media campaigns. The tool is used to ensure that whatever is posted on social media remains in circulation for longer periods so that most people can see (Coles, 2015).

Body of Speech * Walking into Grandma's house just as she is taking fresh baked oatmeal and raisin cookies out of the oven is a memory that is cemented forever. What a wonderful gift! * Oatcakes originated in Scotland and were popular all over the British Isles. The cakes popped into the scene right around the time the Scottish began harvesting oatmeal which was around 1000 BC. Originally the cakes were a staple food more like a pancake than a cookie. The Oatmeal Raisin cake did not officially morph into an actual cookie until about the 19th century when Oatmeal had become a more popular cooking ingredient world-wide. * The very first known record of the Oatmeal Raisin Cookie recipe was found in the Boston Cooking-School Cook Book and was written by Fannie Merritt Farmer in 1896. The Oatmeal Raisin cookie quickly grew in popularity due to it being called a health food.

I wil illustrate these differences from three aspects: cooking standard, diet and the way of having dinner. Firstly, the cooking standard is different. Americans emphasize science and nutrition. This is why their whole procedure of cooking is in strict accordance, and the use of recipes is an good example. In American recipes, measurement is calculated by grams and the recipe seems to be scientific and accurate. They are always totally accroding to recipes to buy food material and make dishes, and there always an electronic scale in kitchen to accurate measurement according to the recipe. However, Chinese is always cooking at will. They cooking with what they have, and almost anything can be cooked together, such as pumpkin and sweetbell redpepper, pig’s intestines and celery.

Ms. Anita is asking for a cookbook filled with Arabic recipes that is created upon her specifications. She wants it to be easy to follow with clear steps as she finds some other Arabic cookbooks really complicated as she isn’t familiar with some of the ingredients. Explanation of inadequacies of current situation: In the interview I had with Ms. Anita, she stated that her family and her are really interested in Arabic food and find it a great way to learn more about the Arabic culture they live in. Currently, she doesn’t have any Arabic cookbooks as the only ones available around her are very complicated and she finds the steps unclear and difficult to follow. She also stated that she is unfamiliar with some of the ingredients so she thinks that an Arabic cuisine cookbook created by an Arab who is familiar with the ingredients is a very good idea. Ms. Anita thinks that using an IT system to create the cookbook is a fantastic idea as videos and other features that make the cookbook easier to follow can be added to the digital cookbook.

Art of the Start

...Quiz Positioning is the focus of chapter two in Art of the Start, by Guy Kawasaki. All new companies need to great positioning to be successful and develop their brand. The startup that I believe created successful positioning is called, Plated. Plated is a New York City based startup formed in 2012 by Josh Hix and Nick Taranto. Plated is a website where users can see different recipes from chefs around the world. If there is a recipe that you like, you can can request the dish, then Plated sends you exactly every ingredient you need. This tackles the common issue of buying too much or not enough of an ingredient when preparing a meal. This startup also allows users to try a variety of dishes that they may have not heard of. Plated was also featured on this past season of ABC’s Shark Tank in efforts to raise more money to branch out into the mid-west and west coast. My girlfriend Tammy and I frequently use Plated to make meals, and as a customer I have always been satisfied. The best thing about Plated is that they send you all the ingredients, measured out perfectly, all you do is follow the recipe instructions. Also, if they send you meat or fish, they make sure to place it in an ice pack bag to keep it fresh. When I first heard about Plated I realized that they have made their service for people who don’t have time to make meals and for people who don’t have cooking experience in general. This is a “specific” positioning technique as mentioned by Kawasaki on page 31. The...

Farang Food Review

...= Farang Food by Gill Bater is a recommended book to read to foreigners and Thai alike once they face the challenge of cooking international meals. Farang Food is, as the name suggests, a book that concerns with foods that are outside Thailand's border, mostly on the western side of the world. This recipe book is in its second edition and is printed on good quality glossy stock. This is itself is an important consideration for a recipe book which will spend much of its time in the greasy environment of a kitchen. The copy I have myself have gone through stages of wear and tear, even sribbles from my earlier days of artistic excursions. The book as expressed before is multi-lingual, meaning that a person from more than one ethnic or national background may be able to read it. That is also the main purpose of the book: giving opportunity for those wanting to cook, to also learn a second language. The descriptive detail and instructions within the book are quite simple, a little too simple at times, but it still gets the message across. It is amazing to see that a person is able to squeeze in a 20 step process into a 2 page space. Foreigners living in Thailand have also experienced studying this cookbook. Stanley Kemp, a foreigner living in Thailand who still has a taste for his Western delicacies, stated "...when we returned to 388 John from Jomtien called in for the afternoon so we had a chat about cars, computers and cameras, then Diana made a small chili-con-carne for...
