The Best Chocolate Cake Ever 1 box devil’s food cake mix 1 small pkg Jello instant chocolate pudding mix 1 cup sour cream 1 cup vegetable oil 4 eggs, beaten 1/2 cup milk 1 tsp vanilla 2 cups mini chocolate chips Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a very large bowl, mix together everything except chocolate chips. Batter will be thick. Stir in the chocolate chips. Pour batter into cake pan of choice (I normally use two 9-inch pie pans). For cooking time, I use the cooking times on the back of the devil’s food cake box as a guide and usually add 10 mins to whatever it says. Then I do the toothpick check, and if it’s not done, I check on it every 5 mins after that. It usually takes around 45 mins for two, 9-inch pie pans.

Sprinkle the yeast over the top. Allow to set for 5 minutes. Once the yeast has proofed, sprinkle the sugar over the top. In bowl combine salt, cinnamon and flour. In another bowl whisk together cooled, melted butter and egg. Turn the mixer to medium speed and pour in the egg and butter mixture. Next add the flour 1 tablespoon at a time until it is all incorporated. Be sure to scrape down the sides of the bowl as you go. Allow the mixer to run, on medium speed for 8 - 10 minutes or until the dough starts to pull away from the sides and you hear it slapping against the bowl. Turn off mixer and allow the dough to rest, untouched for 5 minutes. Lightly oil a bowl, place dough in the bowl and toss dough to coat in the oil. Cover lightly and let rise in a warm dark place until doubled in size, about 45 - 60 minutes. Once dough has doubled in size, place it on a lightly floured surface and roll out to 1/2 inch. Use a 3 inch doughnut cutter to cut dough into 10 doughnuts and 10 doughnut holes. Place doughnuts and doughnut holes on a lightly floured baking sheet. Cover lightly and let rise for 1 1/2 to 2 hours or until they have doubled in size. You want them light and fluffy. Make the coating by combining the granulated sugar and cinnamon together in a paper bag. Heat canola oil to 365 degrees in a large pan. Once hot, place 2 - 3 doughnuts in the oil and fry, turning often, until they are golden brown 2 - 3 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to pick up the doughnuts. Allow excess grease to drip and quickly add the hot doughnuts to the cinnamon and sugar in the bag and shake to coat. Repeat with remaining doughnuts and doughnut holes. Serve hot. Enjoy!

Cinnamon Sugar Pretzel Bites

Recipe courtesy 1 1/2 cups warm water 2 tablespoons light brown sugar 1 package active dry yeast (2 1/4 teaspoons) 6 tablespoons (3 oz) unsalted butter, melted 2 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt 4 1/2 to 5 cups all-purpose flour Vegetable oil 3 quarts water 2/3 cup baking soda 1 whole egg, beaten with 1 tablespoon cold water (egg wash) 2 tablespoons sugar mixed with 1 teaspoon cinnamon Combine the water, sugar, yeast, and butter in the bowl of a stand mixer and mix with the dough hook until combined. Let sit for 5 minutes. Add the salt and flour and mix on low speed until combined. Increase the speed to medium and continue kneading until the dough is smooth and begins to pull away from the side of the bowl, about 3 to 4 minutes. If the dough appears too wet, add additional flour, 1 tablespoon at a time. Remove the dough from the bowl, place on a flat surface and knead into a ball with your hands. Coat a bowl with vegetable oil, add the dough and turn to coat with the oil. Cover with a clean towel or foil and place in a warm , draft-free spot until the dough doubles in size, about one hour. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Bring the water to a boil and add the baking soda. Remove the dough from the bowl and place on a floured surface. Divide the dough into 8 equal pieces, and roll each piece into a rope about 22″ long. Cut the dough into one inch pieces to make pretzel bites. Boil the pretzel bites in the water solution in batches, about 15 at a time, for 30 seconds. Remove with a large slotted spoon. Place pretzel bites on a well-greased baking sheet. Bake the pretzel bites at 425 for 8 minutes, then remove from the oven and immediately place the pretzel bites on a cooling rack. Brush with the egg wash and sprinkle the tops generously with cinnamon sugar. You want to do this over a cooling rack and not on the pan you bake the pretzel bites on or else the sugar will stick to the bottom of the pan and burn. Then put the pretzel bites back on the first pan and continue baking for an additional 8-10 mins until golden and cooked through. Serve with Salted Caramel Sauce, recipe on

...The Perfect Owner for the Popular Pit Bull I can still recall the graphic story my mother told me of how our family dog, a Jack Russell Terrier named Jack, was mauled and nearly killed by an American Pit Bull Terrier, or APBT. Its teeth pierced through Jack’s fragile neck missing the aorta by centimeters. After hearing that story, many people would say that pit bulls are ferocious and viscous. However, those same people do not know that the APBT’s owners were drug dealers and animal abusers, using their dog to fight for an underground drug ring. I strongly believe that if an owner trains his or her pit bull appropriately and effectively, it will not become the epitome of the public’s perception on the breed. There are a multitude of effective ingredients to training a pit bull. These include living in a proper environment with ample amounts of exercise, utilizing obedience techniques, and conducting appropriate socialization. Contrary to popular norms, one must not consider if a pit bull is the right dog for him or her, rather, the future owner must consider if he or she is the right owner for a pit bull. Environment is a key factor in deciding if a person is the perfect owner. Pit bulls need their space; therefore, if a potential owner lives in a small apartment, he or she might reconsider getting a pit bull. As a result of living in a small place, pit bulls will often feel overwhelmed and stressed. They will begin to destroy personal property, either by chewing on......

Red Bull Research Paper

...Slater White STR 356 Sports Promotion Professor Walpole 5/2/12 The World of Red Bull Red Bull is a sugary, caffeinated drink intended to give consumers a boost of energy. Available in cans ranging from, 8, 12, 16 and 20oz cans. Founded in 1984 by Austrian businessman Dietrich Mateschitz, Red Bull has become the worlds leading energy drink, a staple in many young, and active people’s lives. Much of Red Bull’s triumph in the industry comes from its ability to market itself within the sports industry. The approach is aggressive and exceeds simple sponsorship. Red Bull focuses much of its time on brand management, and ownership allows it to completely control how its brand is connected with a given sport. The drink claims to improve some of the most important attributes of successful sports people – fast reactions, concentration and endurance. Priding itself on these attributes, Red Bull realized how effective the drink would be within the sports industry. As soon as Mateschitz realized the possible profitability Red Bull could generate within the sports industry there was nothing stopping him. Red Bull began supporting approximately 500 extreme sports athletes and hosting exclusive parties for these amazing competitors. By 1997, Red Bull’s buzz marketing strategy proved successful. Brandon Steiner, of Steiner Sports Marketing says, "It's a good relationship with what the drink stands for and what the sport stands for. It doesn't surprise me to see that kind of synergy....

...Introduction Red Bull is one of the biggest energy drink successes, created in 1987 by Austrian company Red Bull GmbH. The slim blue silver can has developed a following among those who claim that it helps them with virtually everything to work better and play better. Red Bull is sold in over 165 countries globally. In terms of market share, Red Bull is the most popular energy drink in the world, with 5.2 billion cans sold in 2012. Over the years, the drink has been copied by more than 100 rivals, but such companies as Anheuser-Busch and Coca-Cola have been unable to take market share away from Red Bull. In 1982, Dietrich Mateschitz, the founder of Red Bull became aware of products called “tonic drinks” which enjoyed extensive popularity in Thailand. He took this idea, modified the ingredients to suit the tastes of westerners, and, in partnership with Chaleo Yoovidhya, founded Red Bull GmbH in Austria. Energy drinks containing taurine, glucuronolactone, caffeine and important vitamins and carbohydrates are claimed to help with physical endurance, improved reaction, speed and concentration and a feeling of well being. In the present days more than a billion cans of Red Bull are consumed each year around the world. The company slogan is "Red Bull gives you wings", and the product is marketed through advertising, extreme sports events (Red Bull Air Race, Red Bull Crashed Ice), sports team ownerships (Red Bull Racing, Scuderia Toro Rosso, EC Red Bull Salzburg, FC Red......

Breed Specific Legislation Isn’t Fair

...American Pit Bull Terrier from multiple states in America, and even some European countries. In this essay I will prove the unnecessity of BSL. This essay will go more in depth on what BSL is all about, it will educate the readers about the American Pit Bull Terrier breed and the pit bull family as a whole, and it will provide possible alternatives. Breed Specific Legislation made its first notable appearance in 1984. “In 1984, a New Mexico town completely banned pit bulls and allowed county officers to confiscate and euthanize the dogs” (animallaw, 2007). BSL was made to try to regulate specific breeds of dogs. Usually, BSL targets breeds that are thought of as dangerous breeds. Proponents of BSL claim that BSL is a great way to reduce the threatening pit bull breed (animallaw, 2007). People who support BSL usually have imagined pit bulls as vicious dogs bred just to fight. BSL is slowly being seen as ineffective laws because leaders of communities are being educated more about pit bulls. Pit bulls are not necessarily a breed of dog. Pit bulls are a category of dogs more than a breed. Pit bull usually groups 3 breeds of dog, “the American Pit Bull Terrier (APBT), American Staffordshire Terrier (AMSTAFF), and the Staffordshire Bull Terrier (STAFFIE)” (.understand-a-bull., 2007). Pit bulls have been given a bad reputation because of all the media and press that pit bulls have been in. for example the Michael Vick dog fighting scandal. The truth behind all of this......

Red Bull Analysis

...Recommendations and Implementation: Red Bull With a company that has 70 to 90 percent of the market share in over 100 countries worldwide, the most important recommendations boil down to sustainability (Gschwandtner). Red Bull has done most things right in the business world – they have minimized costs by using viral marketing, maximized image to gain huge market shares, and most importantly have stuck to core competencies. Emmy Cortes, the Corporate Communications Manager for Red Bull North America was quoted as saying, “we are one of the few companies in the world that can stay focused on one product, so we do what we do best” (Rodgers). However, the fact that Red Bull is doing so well does not eliminate room for growth and definitely does not guarantee them infinite brand security in today’s changing world. There are a few recommendations and ways of implementing them that should be addressed. The first suggestion would be that Red Bull should invest more money into research and development, working towards developing more health based products as a result of scientific debate and legal regulations surrounding their brand. Red Bull is currently banned in five countries, limiting their market (Rodgers). Red Bull argues that the ‘danger factor’ of their product is what makes it so appealing to its consumers; however, there is a larger demographic that can be targeted should they introduce more health conscious versions of the drink. We believe that Red Bull should look......

...comparison between Monster and Red Bull energy drinks. This is very controversial because many people not only love these drinks but think they’re health to be consuming on a daily basis. I work in the fitness industry and although many people in this industry think these drinks are okay to drink, it’s mostly people not in this industry consuming these drinks, they don’t know better.

...Red Bull The reason that Red bull has been successful with their brand is because they had a great marketing strategy. Also with Red Bull they have used no print, billboards, banner ads, or Super Bowl spots, and minimal television ads. Instead they focus on viral marketing based on word of mouth and a “seeding program” focused on getting Red Bull products into trendy shops, clubs, and bars (Kotler & Keller, 2012). Also with Red Bull they also went to bars to sell their product because they knew the people were open to try new drinks in a bar. When it comes down to the strength of Red Bull they have a lot of them. Some of them are that they can be found everywhere like bars and restaurants. Also they made the drink for everyone and different types of people. Red Bull users are party goers, students and so on. Red Bull had the idea to connect with the younger consumers and it has made the company very successful than some of their competitors. Red Bull is one of the most powerful global brands in the U.S. and probably nationwide. During the past 15 years, the drink Red Bull has been copied by more than100 competitors but such companies as Coco Cola and Anheuser- Busch have been unable to take market share away from Red Bull. As the company Red Bull grew they added three more additional products and they are Red Bull Sugar free, Red Bull Energy Shots and Red Bull Cola.

...English 112 Leonard The Misunderstood Pit-bull The misconception of the pit-bull has always been controversial to most people. Most of the public refers to the breed as mean and vicious. It is unfair that they judge the breed based on rumors and hearsay rather than base it on hard facts. These rumors make it hard for current owners and potential owners to adopt or own this breed. The pit-bull has the same right to become a loving pet as any other animal does. The reason the breed is so disliked today is because of bad owners, bad experiences, or just rumors people have spewed out among the public. Most of the time, these breeds are linked to drug dealers or dog fighters. They use the breed to make them money by fighting, or for general protection. These bad owners are the ones that are responsible for the way people look at them today. Most of society’s bad experiences come from these types of pit-bulls. You can see it on the news most of the time. A child or a person in a bad neighborhood just happens to be walking through when a pit-bull attacks them. When this happens it is most likely a bad owner to be at fault, not the pit-bull.” Bad owners make bad pets,” (PBRC) and these specific situations are no different. “Identity, which is shaped by our own culture” (Latterell 9) is what has made the pit-bull into how people see the breed today. I can see why most people misunderstand the pit-bull and will not consider the breed to be a family......

...Red Bull Case Study 1. Red Bull has always done marketing in an unconventional ways compared to the mainstream. When the company first started in the United States in 1997, Red Bull did their promotions by relying on word-of mouth. They gave away free cans of Red Bull all around the country from their specially made Red Bull vehicles. They also let the negative rumors spread about their company without addressing each, causing more stir around the country about Red Bull. They seemed to embrace the old saying, “any publicity is good publicity.” They have not relied on TV and print advertising like the other mainstream companies. Mateschitz wanted to reach young people through activities that he felt young people were passionate about, thus creating a personal relationship with Red Bull. According to the text, Red Bull sponsors more than 500 athletes, including Shaun White and Travis Pastrana. They also own four soccer teams, a NASCAR team, and two Formula 1 racing teams. Red Bull uses these athletes and teams to put their logo wherever they can, to bring awareness to the company. They also have reached out to the music and entertainment world, by sponsoring “artists, teams, and events in dance, music, film, video games, and other creative media” (Kotler, p. 429). Their most ambitious venture is the Red Bull Media House, which is their TV network.

Bull Riding

...Aaron Mikles 1/6/13 3rd Demiter They say bull riding is the most dangerous sport on dirt. In a lot of ways they are right a lot of people are injured and even killed. In bull riding they say its not if you get hurt its when and how bad. Bull riding has been around for a long time for a few hundred years. Bull riding is an exciting and an adrenaline pumping sport because of the history of bull riding, the way you are scored, and the safety of the rider and the bull. Bull riding has a long rich history, it can be traced back all the way to the early 1800’s. Cowboys would get together and have contests in things they normally do on a ranch like roping and trying to break horses, but you didn’t have to get on the back of a bull for no reason they just wanted to see who could do it and so began bull riding. The first formal rodeo was held in Cheyenne, Wyoming in 1872. Bull riding quickly became the most watched and anticipated event at the rodeos.
