In this video, Steve Perry explains why he thinks that MIT and Harvard’s “edX” online education program is “revolutionary.”


Me personally, I think its a better idea because it keeps down most peer group pressures such as dorm distractions, pledges to a fraternity, indoctrinations, polarizations and all other distractors that might take away from a solid education. Education should not be a statutes symbol endeavor, but a true personal development towards furthering solutions to the enigmas of mankind.
Thanks to a computer program analysis, no two papers are deemed to be the same, that is, no two authors will discern information in the same way. That eliminates cheats and plagiarism, plus your papers are archived forever within that particular institution to be cited and expanded on. We need true achievers, it is time to arrive with the times. For more info;  https://www.edx.org/

Curried Peas




Bookmark and Share


To my mind there is no better fresh spring vegetable than peas. This recipe makes use of three varieties, but you may use whichever varieties are available fresh in your area.

Curried Peas

2 shallots, finely chopped
2 Tbs (30 ml) butter
2 tsp (10 ml) curry powder
3/4 cup (180 ml) chicken broth
1/2 lb (225 g) sugar snap peas, trimmed
1/2 lb (225 g) snow peas (mange-tout), trimmed
1 cup (250 ml) fresh or frozen green peas
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Saute the shallots in the butter in a saucepan over moderate heat until tender, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the curry powder and cook 1 minute. Add the broth and bring to a boil. Add all the peas and simmer covered until tender, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Serves 4 to 6.

Sweet and Sour Cabbage

Bookmark and Share


This recipe tastes great at any time of year, but I particularly enjoy it on a cold winter night. My version of this German classic can be made vegetarian by substituting the lard or bacon fat with vegetable or olive oil.
Sweet and Sour Cabbage

A 2 to 2-1/2 (1 kg) red cabbage, quartered, cored, and cut into 1/8 in (5 mm) shreds
2/3 cup red wine vinegar
2 Tbs sugar
2 tsp salt
2 Tbs lard or bacon fat
2 medium sized baking apples, peeled, cored and cut into 1/8 in (5 mm) wedges
1/2 cup finely chopped onions
1 whole onion, peeled and pierced with 2 whole cloves
1 bay leaf
5 cups boiling water
3 Tbs dry red wine
3 Tbs red currant jelly (optional)

In a large mixing bowl combine the cabbage, vinegar, salt and sugar, tossing to mix well. In a heavy 4 to 5 quart (4 to 5 liter) casserole melt the lard or bacon fat over moderate heat. Add the apples and chopped onions and cook, stirring frequently, for 5 minutes or until the apples are lightly browned. Add the cabbage, the whole onion with the cloves, the bay leaf, and the boiling water. Bring to a boil over high heat, stirring occasionally, and reduce the heat to its lowest possible point. Cover and simmer 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Check occasionally to make sure the cabbage is moist, adding a few tablespoons of water if necessary. When the cabbage is done there should be almost no liquid left in the casserole. Before serving remove the onion and bay leaf, and stir in the wine and currant jelly. Serves 4 to 6.

Miss Avery's Green Bean Casserole



Bookmark and Share


To give you an idea how ancient today's recipe is, it was given to my mother by the lady hired by my parents to take care of me while my mother gave birth to my brother, way back in nineteen ought fifty-four. Mom says they never knew her as anything other than "Miss Avery."

Miss Avery's Green Bean Casserole

4 Tbs (60 ml) butter
4 Tbs (60 ml) flour
2 cups (500 ml) milk, cream, or combination of the two
A grating of fresh nutmeg
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
4 cups (1 L) cooked green beans (haricots)
1 8 oz (227 g) can sliced water chestnuts, drained
2 cups (500 ml) fresh or canned bean sprouts
1/2 cup (125 ml) grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup (60 ml) sliced almonds

Melt the butter in a saucepan over moderate heat. Add the flour and cook, stirring constantly, until thoroughly incorporated with the butter and is bubbly. Add the milk and/or cream and whisk constantly until it boils. Season with nutmeg, salt, and pepper and remove from the heat. In a 4 quart (4 L) casserole, layer the green beans, then the water chestnuts, then the bean sprouts. Sprinkle the Parmesan over this and pour the cream sauce over the top. Sprinkle with the almonds and bake in a preheated 350F (180C) oven for 30 minutes, until it bubbles. Serves 4 to 6.

Understanding The Marketing Process




By James Byrd, MBA 
Our survival requirements, such as air, food, water, clothing, and shelter are consumer needs. When focused on a particular object or objective such as the desire for a slice of pizza, the needs will transform into wants which will, in this case, satisfy the basic need, lack of food, (Kotler and Keller, 2012, p. 31). This example is the same as a real need. As presented by (McShane, and Von Glinow, 2003), needs are deficiencies that energize or trigger behaviors to satisfy those needs, this will lead one to want to reduce or meet those needs. And again, these are just the primary needs of the consumer which reflect the physiological needs, such as thirst, hunger, clothing, and of course shelter. The secondary needs are such that they are acquired needs much like a sense of belonging, status and self-esteem fulfillments. We are talking needs vs. wants.
Now let’s take another look at the pizza example again, in India, it is a known fact that most citizens there are somewhat leery when it comes to eating meat. One might get away with offering cheese pizzas to the general public there, or better yet, the vegetable topping pizza would be up to the idea of the task environment. Which will include the actors/marketers engaged in producing, distributing and promoting the offerings reflective of the demographics, and, in this case, we are talking social-cultural environment, (Kotler and Keller, 2012, p. 33). With this, we see a prime example of target marketing, positioning, and segmentation of a product offering. It is a strategic decisional process.
Remember, a consumer’s needs are somewhat different from their extravagant wants. Consumer needs are those which one might yearn to fulfill a basic need such as nutritional food as opposed to that of junk food, or that of water vs. alcohol.
In essences, it can be said that marketers do not create needs, needs generate markets. Societal factors influence wants, thereby causing marketers to funnel their resources in that apparent direction, that of effective demand. Again, the marketing concept is a customer-centered needs-based process geared towards the sense-and-respond philosophy. The product should meet the basic requirements of the feedback of the customer.

Global Change

By James Byrd
Some practices of the past are just not equipped to explain the norms of today. Yes, that’s true and to diverge more into the subject of the impact of the internet on globalization, the main or key factors to be looked at are; the growth of global e-commerce, electronic supply chain, and the changing demographics of the global economy. Believe it or not, the world is as close as your cell phone. That is the permutations of new communications and information technologies.
The end of regional isolation due to the downfall of the communist cold war machine is another deciding factor as well. We made peace with Japan and now we have specialized skills coming from there that are being exported throughout the world.
Again, the main cause of globalization is the effects of better ways of doing things. It is no longer a secret on how to make a better cell phone, which is the driving force of innovative technologies. Communication/information is the key, and according to some experts, English is the language of business.
Right now, there is a daring need to add the smartphone to our Amendment II, as a weapon of choice as well. It would be the most cost effective to get rid of the military and just call all your friends, and of course, law enforcement in the case of an incident.
Change as we know it nowadays, is the electric grinder that has changed most of the old tenets that were once written in stone. Change is a hard thing to deal with for both humans and animals, and I must say, change is expansive.
There are choices to be made, and as we move forward with the effects of the manifestation of globalization and the recouping of fruits from each specialized producers from each region of the globe. Overall, we are talking about the cost-effectiveness of wooden shoes. Globalization, it’s a continuation of the Marco Polo paradigm, and it is enviable.
