Artichokes Food historians confirm artichokes descended from their wild cousins cardoons. While the wild variety was consumed in ancient times, modern artichokes, as we know them today, first surface during the Medieval ages. These "Old World" vegetables were introduced to America by European settlers.
The demand for meat, dairy products, and eggs has increased exponentially over the last decade. Meat production is no longer the purview of independent farmers, huge conglomerates have taken it over.
The industrialized production of animals and crops has been identified as risks to public health and the environment.
This essay explains what industrialized meat production is and the negative impact this has on the environment and ecosystems. Bibliography lists 7 sources. Costing Presentation This 9 page paper is a 6 slide PowerPoint presentation and speaker notes answering two costing questions.
The first examines a situation where a production manager suggest increasing production in order to lower costs for the current accounting year; explaining how the use of absorption costing may help to increase reported profits and discusses the ethical issues.
The second question defines the different terms used in variable costing. The bibliography cites 3 sources. Production Memos A 3 page paper containing two memos, one to the production manager and one to the production employees of a manufacturing company.
The memos inform recipients that several brands were tested and that production management have chosen the model preferred by production workers.
The Competitive Advantage of a Global Logistics Network This 6 page report discusses setting up a global logistics network in order to gain a competitive advantage in both sales and production.
Implementing a global logistics network offers significant benefits leading to increased competitive advantages. The ability to reduce the uncertainty of transportation, sales, and manufacturing by tracking the movement of goods and updating the information continuously allows any organization to better manage exceptions and problems, as well as reducing the number of production mishaps or materials allocations and supply.
Bibliography lists 4 sources. The Production Cost Relationship This five page paper explains the cost production relationship, looking at the production function and the cost function and then considering how costs may be distributed over different production levels.
The paper, including one graph looks at using average fixed cost, average variable cost and average total cost in order to determine optimum production levels.
The Birth and Early Development of Comedy 5 pages. The interesting beginning of comedy is the topic of this paper. Up until then the tragedy was the main theme of stage productions.
This paper will trace the history and development of comedy in the Renaissance time as compared to now, with the main thesis of this paper being the difference between comedy and tragedy of that time period.
Youth In Adult Court A 5 page paper. Should youth who commit violent crimes be tried in adult court rather than in juvenile court? This is a hotly debated topic but the tide is turning against this practice.
While there are many mitigating factors when considering trying youth in adult court, in general, the answer is no.Keywords: Cowpea, Yield, Associated trait and Evaluation Introduction Cowpea (Vigna uniguiculata) commonly known as beans is an important, versatile food crop.
It is the most ancient human food. It belongs to family of fabaceae (Leguminoisae) and subfamily of papillnoideae.
The author of “Florida’s Incredible Wild Edibles” Dick Deuerling, now in his 90s, taught me several decades ago that: If it looks like a garlic and smells like a garlic it is a garlic and you can eat it.
If it looks like an onion and smells like an onion you can eat it. They must have both, however, look and aroma. We have a lily here in Florida, for example, that looks like an onion but.
Information on genetic variability among the existing cowpea genotypes will increase the efficiency of the cowpea improvement. Field experiments were conducted at the Agricultural Research Council–Roodeplaat Vegetable and Ornamental Plant Institute in South Africa, in and , to estimate the level of phenotypic variability among a .
Cowpea, an important grain legume in the tropics and sub-tropics; serves as a source of protein in the diets of the people with tremendous ability to fix atmospheric nitrogen for soil improvement.
Ten (10) genotypes of cowpea were grown during the rainy season of to study the interrelationship among quantitative traits. Full Length Research paper - Screening cowpea [Vigna unguiculata (L.) Walp.] varieties by inducing water deficit and RAPD analyses.
UC Riverside Researchers Develop Genetic Map for Cowpea, Accelerating Development of New Varieties. Map also facilitates genetic improvement of several other legumes as well as Prasanna Bhat, Raymond Fenton, Steve Wanamaker, and Marti Pottorff.
Other coauthors on the research paper are Sarah Hearne and Christian Fatokun of the .
