Food to our bodies is like gas to our cars!

Food to our bodies is like gas to our cars, impossible to run without! We all eat day in and day out, with little thought to the process our bodies begin the moment we take that first bite. For the next six to eight hours your body will be breaking down the food you ate into energy and sending it throughout your body to aid in the areas it is meant to. Although the digestive time ranges between men and women along with age. Each individual’s body digests in various ways and time lengths. The digestion process begins in the mouth as you chew your food and the saliva in your mouth begins to break down your food. Along with aiding in the process of swallowing your food. From the mouth your food travels through your esophagus which is a long tube that runs from your mouth to your stomach. Once the food reaches your stomach it begins a process of churning the food within a very strong acid. Once the food has been broken down further by the acid, the food enters the small intestine, this is the point in which the food is broken down further throughout the liver and the rest of the small intestine. Once the food moves from the small intestine it makes its way into the large intestine. This is the stage in which the water and other electrolytes are removed from the food. Within the large intestine your food passes through the colon, and down into the final stage of the digestive system where it is stored within the rectum area. As we all pass through the digestive process multiple times a day, we gain and maintain our energy levels though the food we digest. Insuring a healthy and productive…...

How to Build Up Self-Confidence

...Then, many people would ask, how to build up self-confidence exactly? I should tell those people for certain that there is no absolute or exact solution to the problem of lacking self-confidence. For people who are unconfident have different reasons to feel inferior. Therefore the first thing is to figure out who you are and why you are not confident about yourself. For those who are born pessimistic, they should try to look at the good side and always give themselves optimistic hints like seeing the glass half full instead of half empty. For those who are experiencing defeat for the moment, it’s quite normal to doubt themselves and ask the question “Do I make the right choice at the beginning?” But the truth is, those obstacles are what you must learn to deal with on your road to success. So for now all you need is to get some rest and calm down to analyze how come the failure. With some adjustment, you’ll find your confidence and passion in your work soon. By saying rest, I mean traveling, reading a wonderful book, anything that suits you best. I used to be very unconfident. Throwing my mind back to my middle school time, I once was too afraid or say, too unconfident to stand in front of the class to answer a question raised by my social science teacher. I did the most shameful thing in my life—I cried. That thing I will never forget. Later, with the help of my head teacher, Mrs. Wang and through my own efforts, I overcame the fear and built up my self-confidence. I did......

Build the Bear, Build the Memory

...BACKGROUND & UPDATING Build a bear was founded in 1996, in a really hard context for companies in United States, even more for new companies that were trying to come up with something new or in this case for something creative. It was hard at the beginning, but three years later it was recognized as one of the hottest retailers in United States, people also got proud of how a small company could grow up so fast and also to get in the bests companies for customers. Build a Bear was opened by first time in 1996, having after that over more than 200 companies around United States; right now it has even more than 400 companies around the world in four different countries (United States, UK (United Kingdom, Puerto Rico, and Canada), they also give the chance to make it possible for creating a store by starting at least with 5 million dollars (it depends of the country, but that is the minimum capital people have to start with), it doesn’t mean it will be a sub franchising or something similar, they still be the total owners of the store making the country as a new point of the brand. The idea came up in a really particular situation between Maxine Clark and her friend. She was only 10 years old when she was trying to get a bear toy from the store with her friend, but her friend couldn’t find the one she liked it, and then she said it should be a great idea about making her own teddy bear, it was the moment when Maxine went even deeper, and she got a creative and also a......

The House That Build Me Analysis

...Songs in our generation convey a large variety of meanings, this particular song, “House that Build Me” effectively conveys its theme and tone through a series of literary techniques. This song shares the story of a young girl who ventures out into the real world only to realize that she has lost her way. She feels distant and broken inside and realizes that there is only one way to fix this emptiness. She then goes to visit her very first home where all her fondest memories were made only to find that it is now someone else’s home. She implores the current resident of the home to let her in and assure her that she comes with the purest of intentions. As she walks around the house she realizes where she came from, as well as the values and dreams she was raised with. The very first literary device used is one of personification, used in the verse “From the house that built me.” This line, if interpreted literally, states that the house physically built the speaker. However, if this same line is interpreted figuratively, is reads that the house is such a big part of her memory and childhood that it is the foundation of who she is today. Throughout the song, the artist speaks of a house that she is visiting. This house is a symbol used to represent her roots and all the thing life used to consist of that are now gone. This could be representative of family that passed, morals that were compromised, or perhaps a negative change in one’s own personality. There are very few......

Corporate America's Cash Build-Up

...bargain merger and acquisition prices in all cases though, as more companies in the market could result in bidding wars that could drive up the price associated with merger and acquisitions prices. Many companies have foregone investing their cash in favor of rewarding their shareholders in the form of increased cash dividends. Throughout the recession many firms had cut their dividends to create cash reserves, as General Electric did in February 2009 when they cut their quarterly dividend to 10 cents a share (from 31 cents) saving about $9 billion annually. This trend is beginning to reverse as companies such as Marriott International doubled their payout, while others such as Cinemark Holdings and Tupperware Brands both boosted their dividends by about 20% from the previous quarter[4]. Another strategy companies will look to execute are accelerated stock buyback programs, many of which were suspended or canceled during the downturn. When firms buyback shares of their own stock it effectively reduces the number of outstanding shares on the market, which ultimately helps boost earnings per share as their net profits would be divided among fewer shareholders. More than half of the S&P 500 companies bought back stock during the second quarter of 2010, with buybacks surging to $77.64 billion, according to Standard & Poor's. That's up 220% from a record low of $24.2 billion in the second quarter of 2009[5]. The tech sector accounted for 27% of those......

...clients that are being served. One company many people would not expect to be on The Fortune 100 list is Build-A-Bear Workshop. For the fifth consecutive year, Build-A-Bear Workshop has been named one of Fortune Magazine’s “100 Best Companies to Work For” and is the only toy retailer on this year’s list. Build-A-Bear scored 62 out of 100 on the list. A woman named Maxine Clark founded Build-A-Bear Workshop in 1997. She is considered one of the true innovators in the retail industry. In an interview for CNN, Clark stated: “In 1997, I withdrew $750,000 from my retirement account to get Build-a-Bear Workshop off the ground. That covered startup costs and the building of the first prototype store. I also secured a bank line of credit for inventory and working capital, with my house as collateral. I knew I wanted to build a multimillion-dollar business with hundreds of units, and I realized I didn't have the ready cash to fund that growth. I knew I'd have to partner with outside investors.” While building the first Build-A-Bear store, there was a story posted in the St. Louis Business Journal about the concept. Through this article, it caught the eye of Barney Ebsworth, who owned a private investment firm with his partner Wayne Smith, They bought in 20% for $4.5 million, therefore Clark had enough money for several years and she did not even open her first store yet! The first Build-A-Bear Workshop opened in the St. Louis Galleria, in which lines were out the door! Clark......

Characterizing Sediment Build Up on Road Surfaces

...procedures. The RVS method developed by BU and ITU for preliminary prioritization of buildings is based on the ratio of roof displacement capacity to roof displacement demand determined for life safety performance criteria and collapse prevention performance criteria. The procedure seems to be fairly complicated and requires in-depth knowledge on the subject to develop the results. The RVS procedure developed by the METU has since been revised and reformu˘ lated by Sucuoglu et al. (2007) on the basis of data consisting of 454 three to six story RC-frame buildings surveyed after the 1999 Düzce earthquake and classified in four damage grades. This method assigns a “Basic Score” to different RC-frame buildings depending on the number of stories (up to 7) and the seismic zone. Since the METU 712 JAIN ET AL. Table 2.

Build-a-Bear

...Build-A-Bear Assignment Question #1: Give examples of needs, wants and demands that Build-A-Bear customers demonstrate, differentiating each of these three concepts. Needs: Needs are defined as states of felt deprivation. They include basic physical needs (food, shelter, warmth, etc.), social needs (affection and a sense of belonging) and individual needs (knowledge and self-expression). These needs are a part of the human makeup; they are not created by marketers. The Build-A-Bear customers are mainly children and all children have a need of entertainment, love & affection, comfort and a sense that they belong. Build-A-Bear fulfills these needs by offering an experience that provides them with entertainment, creates a new friend for them to love & bring comfort and by joining the Build-A-Bear “Club” they get a sense of belonging. Wants: Wants are defined as the form needs take when shaped by culture and individual personality. In Build-A-Bears case children want the opportunity to personalize their new friend based on their individual preferences. Starting from the “Choose Me” station, where they can select the type of stuffed animal, thru to the “Name Me” station, the children have control, giving them a sense of individual satisfaction. Culture shapes the sense of belonging need into a want by influencing the children to want to belong to the “Build-A-Bear Club”. Other children who have shared the experience already belong making the new customers want to as......

Computer Build

...Jaime Trevino Professor Crittenden Computer Science-1413 December 12, 2014 The computer that I would attempt to build is a gaming computer. My 11 year old son, Tanner, was so excited when he found out I was taking this class because he has wanted a gaming computer for so long! He made me promise that I would build him one, eventually and I told him I would try my hardest to do it for him. So, here goes nothing! I haven’t ever attempted to build any computer or really even attempted to take one apart. I know more about the software side of computers so this may not make a lot of sense. First things first, the motherboard. I chose the ASUS Z97M-Plus. It supports a CPU socket type LGA 1150. It uses DDR3 memory, has 4 x 240 pin memory slots, dual channel, and supports up to 32 GB of memory. It has one 3.0 x 16 PCI-e slot, one (x4 mode) 2.0 x 16 PCI express slots, and 2 PCI slot. It uses Serial ATA (SATA) 6 GB/s, 1 M.2, and the SATA RAID is 0/1/5/10. The onboard audio is Realtek ALC887 with eight channels. LAN chipset is Intel 1218-V and the maximum LAN speed is 10/100/1000Mbps. This particular motherboard comes with a limited 3 year warranty on parts and labor. Now that all of that is out of the way let me tell you a little bit about why I chose this particular motherboard after looking at so many that my eyes starting crossing. A Z97 motherboard is fully unlocked for overclocking endeavors and it hosts passive VRM cooling which allows for better heat dissipation.......

Build a Bear

...CASE 1 –Build a Bear, Build a memory- Synopsis: Build a Bear was founded by Maxine Clark in hard times. Where the internet was in its early phases of development, this era was a bad time to come with this type of business idea and as a matter of fact, Maxine Clark was criticized for this business idea. But nearly a decade later this company was considered as one of the hottest five retailers. The company hit number 25 on Business Week´s Hot Growth list of fast expanding small companies and Maxine Clark won Fast Company´s Customer-Centered Leader award. After being the president of Payless shoe store and resigning in 1996 (Selk, 2015), Maxine Clark´s Build a Bear first store opened in 1997 in Saint Louis Missouri. By 2007 it had sold over 50 million customer-made teddy bears and registered sales of $474 million. Clark’s inspiration came from her 10 year old friend Katie. She argued why she couldn´t find the stuffed toy she wanted and that it was so easy to make (Build a Bear, 2015); and so the inspiration came. Currently, there are over 400 stores in the USA, UK, Puerto Rico, Canada and franchises in Europe, Asia, Middle East, Australia, Mexico and Africa, with more than 125 million Bears living around the world. They are also diversifying the product, not only teddy bears.

Lord of the Flies: What Way Does Golding Present the Boys Build Up Savagery?

...What way does Golding present the boys build up to savagery? The main build up to savagery in the book could be the choir. The choir began as boys who accept the discipline of a choir school and acknowledge Jack's position as head choir boy, The boys become hunters, when Jack forces this role upon them. Then, as Jack releases his savage instincts by creating his mask, they become savages. They used to wear identical cloaks and caps, a uniform designed to promote their group identity and hide individuality to make them all the same apart from Jack who was shown to be the 'Leader'. Jack orders the choir to 'take off' their 'togs' this symbolises the stripping away of civilisation. Now their identities are hidden by masks and paint, and they turn into a tribe of savage killers, living in fear of their cruel chief. Earlier into the book when they build shelter on the beach Jack description of a hunter makes him seems like an animal himself. We see him crouching, 'dog-like', and sniffing the air, 'like a sprinter, his nose only a few inches from the humid earth'. He's almost naked, apart from his 'tattered shorts' and he carries a 'sharpened stick' which he uses as a spear. Every time they kill they take a step further down the road to savagery. In the next chapter 'Painted Faces and Long Hair' Jack paints his face with clay and charcoal for camouflage when hunting, but the mask he creates has a powerful psychological effect as well. The sight of his......

Build-a-Bear: Build-a-Memory

...1. Give examples of needs, wants, and demands that Build-A-Bear customers demonstrate, differentiating each of these three concepts. What are the implications of each on Build-A-Bear’s actions? Answer: Why children like staffed animals? Why children like Teddy bear over other staffed animal? The answer of the above two question will give you the answer “what is the needs and wants of Build-A-Bear customers?” as well. First of all, children like to play. They always wish to play with those animals and superheroes that they see in the Television screen and other media especially in cartoons. As Build-A-Bear’s customers are almost children, their need is to play. Now, come to the second question, it focuses of a specific toy renowned as “Teddy Bear”. If you think deeply about the question, you will surely find something irrelevant. You may question, who have told you that all the children throughout the world like Teddy bear? Yes you are right, and the difference between needs and wants is embedded into your question. Most of the children of western country like Teddy bear, but from our perspective as an inhabitant of a third world country, the situation is much different. The reason behind it is want – the form of human needs shaped by culture, habits and individual personality. As children of western countries are familiar with the animal teddy bear physically their want is to play with the animal and that’s why Teddy bear is a renowned staffed animal in those......

Me, Me Me

...In January 2008 a British journalist, Sarfraz Manzoor, wrote an article with the title “Me, Me, Me” that appeared in the magazine “Esquire”. He gives his opinion on how the phenomenon “New Narcissism” has its influences on today’s society through the Internet. And he leaves us with the impression that there is a reason to be worried about today's youth being more narcissistic than ever before. Narcissism is not new for us. New Narcissism is a modern version of the phenomenon narcissism. And it has been known since ancient Greece with the Greek myth about Narcissus that fell in love with his own reflection in the water. The man that got narcissism recognized as a medical condition was Sigmund Freud (l. 53). But in our age, the word, narcissism, does not seem that serious and is mostly defined as a phenomenon. This New Narcissism has come to life because society reproduces itself (l. 59). And growing numbers of people are more narcissistic according to a study performed by psychologists. Sarfraz Manzoor, who has written this article, describes that New Narcissism is the offspring of today’s society. He makes an example by including a person named Chris Crocker. Crocker became famous because he put a video on the Internet where he defended the celebrity Britney Spears. There can be two reasons for his behaviour. Is he doing this to tell people that they shall back off and because he is fond of her? Or is he doing this to get attention? But it does not seem as if Britney is......

Build a Bear

...Build-A-Bear: Build-A-Memory In the late 1990s, it was all about the dot-com. While venture capital poured into the high-tech sector and the stock prices of dot-com startups rose rapidly, the performance of traditional companies paled in comparison. This era seemed like a very bad time to start a chain of brick-and mortar mall stores selling stuffed animals. Indeed, when Maxine Clark founded Build-A-Bear Workshop in 1996, many critics thought that she was making a very poor business decision. But as the company nears the end of its first decade, it has more cheerleaders than naysayers. In 2005, one retail consultancy named Build-A-Bear one of the five hottest retailers. The company hit number 25 on BusinessWeek’s Hot Growth list of fast-expanding small companies. And founder and CEO Maxine Clark won Fast Company’s Customer-Centered Leader Award. How does a small startup company achieve such accolades? THE PRODUCT On paper, it all looks simple. Maxine Clark opened the first company store in 1996. Since then, the company has opened more than 370 stores and has custom-made tens of millions of teddy bears and other stuffed animals. Annual revenues reached $474 million for 2007 and are growing at a steady and predictable 15 percent annually. After going public November of 2004, the company stock price soared 56 percent in just two years. Annual sales per square foot are $600, roughly double the average for U.S. mall stores. In fact,......
