Herbert Barrett Tidewater Community College Principles of Management Business 200 Who Ate My Cheese Project Summary December 8, 2013

WHO ATE MY CHEESE Page 1 The story involves four characters, two mice named Scurry and Sniff and two little people named Haw and Hem. In the story all is doing good, because they all have what they need, a big pile of “cheese” that is in a maze and the “cheese” has become the center of their lives. Haw and Hem become content with the cheese and do not notice that it is getting smaller, and one morning it is all gone. They go into a panic since they have built their lives around the cheese they feel betrayed, theft or fraud has happened to them. The mice, Scurry and Sniff upon realizing the same thing accept the fact the cheese is gone and go through the maze looking for more. When you read this book, you will see similar facts about your life. You see that the maze is like our lives and how or where we look for our “cheese”. Each and every day we wake up and navigate the “maze” of our day to day life, feeling lost at times, but we always seem to find our way through it. The decisions we make have a lot of impact on how we achieve our “cheese”. The cheese is what we feel that is needed to fulfill the voids of our lives, money, job, or relationships that will make us feel whole and happy. But, once you find the cheese, is it enough? We seem to always to want more. We become stressed and burned out, the daily grind of life trying to find the “cheese” never seems to end. Some of us become so wrapped up in this

...friend. I took a moment to talk with my wife, Antalaya Israel who of which has a West Indian background (Trinidad). We spoke about her family favorite dish or at least her favorite, and to bring in that recipe to share. Surprisingly for Caribbean women, stuff shells were and still are this Trinidadian favorite dish of all times. Now I get it because being from Bermuda, I tend to lean more to Italian dishes as well but my wife is the oldest of three girls and lived with a mother from my observations, that cooked nothing but soul/Caribbean cuisines. At the end of this interview, I will encourage the reader(s) to try my wife’s recipe for stuff shells. I use my wife as a reliable source for this project because of her family’s background---Trinidadian. There’s no secret that Caribbean women love to cook, and not just love but can actually put great things together in the kitchen. Her mother and I often argue about who is the better cook but to be honest, her mother is a very good cook. From the spices she uses to presentation. As a matter of fact, she has a catering company---she being the mother. Trinidad cuisine is known for a number of dishes that has contributed to the culinary world. I believe it’s the spices that create these dishes to come to life like no other culture; roti, doubles, curries and more---Trinidad's best foods are loaded with flavor. “Food is diverse breakfasts, cultural and traditional in many cases,” my wife informs me. Trinidad cuisine is influenced...

...Cheese I am definably a cheese lover. There are over 600 different kinds of cheese so you can’t get bored from eating cheese. My favorite dishes with cheese are pizza, any kind of Mexican dishes, macaroni and cheese, grill cheese sandwich, process cheese (just unwrap and eat), chucks of cheese for snacks, different pastas with cheese and of course the cheese burger. I love going to the Mexican restaurant and ordering cheese dip, it hot and you dip your chip into the bowl of cheese and it just makes everyone eating feel good. Conversation starts and everyone is laughing and dripping away at the cheese bowl. Americans typically use less than six different types of cheese in their kitchen: cheddar, Swiss, parmesan, mozzarella, Colby, and maybe blue. Cheese lovers should not limit themselves to the status quo; there are hundreds of types of French cheese alone, not to mention Italy, Spain, or America cheeses. Basic types of cheese are categorized as fresh (short shelf-life), soft or semi-soft cheeses (completely edible), blue/bleu (falls into every catalog but fresh), washed-rind (“Stinky” cheese), hard (firm to truly hard), uncooked pressed (“cheddaring” to prolong the shelf like), and cooked pressed (Hard cheese types must be aged for longer). All cheese is made from the milk of cows, goats or sheep. The process to make cheese can last from two weeks to years depending on the cheese that is being made. I want get into how cheese is made because frankly it is a turn...

...his men soon found a great cave, far from the other caves of the Cyclopes. The cave was full of round cheeses and pens with lambs and young goats. His men urged Odysseus to steal the cheeses and goats and flee, but he wanted to see the giant for himself. Instead, they built a fire, made a sacrifice to the Gods and ate some cheese. Polyphemus Returns The Cyclops returned, herding his sheep and goats ahead of him into the cave. He placed a huge rock over the entrance, far too large for Odysseus and his men to move. Odysseus spoke to the giant, who was surprised to find them there. The Cyclops promptly dashed two of Odysseus’s men on the floor and ate them before falling asleep. The next day, Polyphemus left, leaving the stone in place to trap the men inside, although not before eating two more of Odysseus’ men. The Second Night Odysseus thought of a plan. Polyphemus had left a great staff there, as big as a ship’s mast. The Greeks modified it, making a giant spear out of it. Polyphemus returned and ate two more men. Odysseus proceeded to get him drunk on wine. When the giant asked his name, Odysseus replied “Noman.” A drunk Polyphemus promised to eat him last as a favor. When he was asleep, the remaining men drove the spear into his one eye, destroying it. Escape From the Cave Polyphemus bellowed for the other Cyclopes to come to his aid. When they came, they asked him who was attacking him. He replied “No man (Noman) is murdering me by treachery.” The other Cyclopes thought...

The Gooseberry

...Week two Hybrid My childhood wasn’t the best; I grew up in Magna, Utah with six other siblings in a four bedroom home. We didn’t know what love was. My stepmother was too busy with reading her books and playing computer games while my father was always busy working or doing whatever he did essentially never being there for us. My mother passed away when I was very young of cancer. Up until maybe six or seven years old, we were actively going to church each week and happily enjoying each other as a family. I remember being as a kid very friendly and very respecting of my parents. As I grew older that changed, I realized how immoral parents they were. We were treated like it was in the latter day’s society. While they ate steak, sea food or Chinese, we ate mac and cheese. I felt like a red headed step child. As a teenager I leaned a very good skill that still is with me today. Around 14 years old I was bored getting into trouble and into marijuana with my friends. I learned of this job through a friend doing landscaping and mowing lawns. I learned great work ethics working this job for several years all the way through high school. Aalst there was a down fall in having a job through my parents eyes, I had to fend for myself in the means of buying my own food and school cloths. The second part of that was that I had money and didn’t know what to do with it. My parents were to busy to teach me about finance and money. I figured that if I have money, go spend it. I never learned...

...when your body stops burning carbs and sugar (glucose) for energy and start burning fat (lipids) reserves. My Personal Experince with Adkins I first earned of the Atkins Diet when I was in my mid-teens (1995ish.) My mother has just been diagnosed a few years prior with type II diabetes and had to start directly on insulin. She heard there was a diet that would allow her to maybe stop taking insulin all together or at least only have to take pills. Being an avid reader and researcher she found the doctor’s book where she learned cutting carbs and sugar from her diet could reduce her dependence on insulin. Being a typical self-absorbed teenager I don’t remember many of the details of her weight loss or what if any medical issues occurred. I do however remember the crazy looks and discussions that occurred when my mom sent me out for fast food and I would ask for a burger without a bun. There are a lot of mouth breathers in the fast food industry, and asking some of these people for this simple request was just too much for them to comprehend. My mom lost over 100 pounds in less than a year, when combined the diet with water aerobics. Because there was way less sugary and carb rich foods in the house I lost a lot of weight also. Looking back at pictures of that time both my mom and I never looked better. About 10 years ago I fell in love with a girl who barely knew I existed and decided that I would win her heart by losing weight (unlike the previous admission...

Is Mary Evil

...Lamb To the Slaughter: Is Mary Evil? By Tony Cui In the short story Lamb to the Slaughter written by Roald Dahl, who was a famous British author. One of the main characters Mary Maloney killed her husband, who was a police officer during a conflict due to a conversation. Afraid of getting caught, she plans a perfect alibi and made the police destroy the evidence for her by invite them to ate the lamb leg she used as a weapon to kill her husband. Although some suggest that Mary is evil and both her murder and covering it up is due to her evilness; I think the truth is just the opposite, Mary isn’t evil and both her murder and cover up are due to accident and necessity. There are three reasons that support my viewpoint: “Firstly, before the accident has occurred her husband was the person who acted cold and refused everything Mary said to try to make him happy, so it suggest that Mary is not a wicked person; secondly, her husband betrayed her first and she was mad due to this; lastly, the reason for Mary to cover up the murder is because that she is pregnant with a child, and she wasn’t sure that if the court would let her born the child before her death penalty. In the story, Mary’s husband acted cold after he went back to home, he rejected all suggestion Mary made to try to make him happy. He refused to have some cheese, going out to eat, and to have some cheese and crackers. When Mary wants to refill his drink, he ordered Mary to “sit down” and he went to do it himself. The...

Prague Tour Guide

...Congratulations! You’re going to one of the most beautiful cities in the world! In terms of area, Prague is separated into different neighborhoods by number. Prague 1 and 3 are the best. Prague 1 is the center and is next to the river, where all the historic stuff is, bars, etc. Prague 3 is popular for young people, foreigners, and bars. Look for accomodation around the metro stops Staroměstská (Old Town), Národní třída, Náměstí Míru. The Jiřího z Poděbrad (known to foreigners as JZP) area has a lot of bars and clubs that are cool, but I wouldn't stay there because you'll end up needing to use the metro a lot. 
Prague is really walkable, or least it is when it's not freezing, but the metro is cheap too. I think it's best to buy single tickets because you have to use the 1 day and 3 day passes a ton for them to be worth it. (Also, remember to stamp your ticket in the machine when you get on the metro or tram. There are undercover ticket checkers. It's possible you won't see one, but when they go out and check, they are everywhere.) I would say unless it's really cold, you can walk to almost everything you want to see. I do not recommend walking all the way to the castle. If you take public transport across the river to Malá Stranait's a nice walk up to the castle. Or you can just take tram 22 to all the way to the top (the stop is called Pražský hrad). 
Food and drink. If you like, you can let me know where you decide to stay and I can give you recommendations for that area...
