When I was once doing an internship at Jaleo in Washington D.C. I asked the head chef what makes a person a great chef and he told me “The chef that grew up with the grandma who cooks tends to always beat the chef that went to the culinary institute. It 's in the blood.” He was telling the truth I always wanted to be chef ever since I was 7 years old.
The first time I ever cooked, I was 7 years old living in Los Angeles, California with my mom. One Saturday morning, I was hungry and my mom had to go to work. I was tired of eating cereal.. I grabbed pancake mix, bacon, sausage, and eggs and put them on the counter. I looked at them and said “let’s get cooking”. Two hours later I had a full breakfast meal cooked: perfectly crisp brown bacon, fluffy light brown pancakes you can just sleep on, eggs that were cooked to flawlessness, superb golden brown sausage that were nice and moist, and not to brittle or soggy.
Growing up, one learns from experience, and boy, did I! From under-cooked chicken to overcooked cakes and cookies, I learned from my experiences. One memorable experience was the day I tried to make chicken. I was 10 years old and I had bought some chicken wings and BBQ sauce from the grocery store. I seasoned the chicken well with paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, curry powder, and sage. I tossed the pieces around in the BBQ sauce mix and put them in the oven. On the internet, it said to let it cook for 1 hour at 350 degrees. Since I was starving and a naive…
brought over from Europe to North America by early European settlers, the herb was used as food and a substitute for garlic, medicinally to treat gangrene and ulcers, and has also been used as a form of erosion control. The first record of garlic mustard in the United States was in Long Island, New York in 1868. In Europe, there are insects and herbivores that have used the plant as a source of food, but the plant is not as tolerated by the insects and herbivores in North America which has…
Mitotic Cyclins start to gradually gather during the G2 phase. Once the appropriate concentration is reached, the mitotic cyclins can bind to the CDKs. Once the mitotic cyclin is inactivated, the cell leaves mitosis and divides and re- enters the G1phase.
3. Score 50 Vicia root tip cells and determine the number of cells in interphase and in mitosis.
Calculate the mitotic index. (2 marks)
Number of cells in mitosis = 13 (a)
Number of cells in interphase = 37(b)
Calculate the mitotic…
incorporating these foods in my diet
would definitely benefit me. The G stands for all green vegetables from cruciferous family that
has the ability to promote healthy vision, reduce the risk of developing diabetes, and act as
antioxidants. They contain beta-carotene, lutein, zeaxanthin, vitamin C, caffeic acid, querecetin,
and anthocyanins, which decreases the chance of developing cancer and cardiovascular diseases.
The “B” stands for beans and legumes that give a body a good glycemic control.…
cover your plants with a drop cloth in the morning when the pests are most active. Once they've gathered on it, shake them off into a large bucket of soapy water.
Pick Your Plants
When planning your garden, choosing your plants wisely helps prevent beetles. Japanese beetles aren't picky eaters, but they do have a few favorite plants, including roses (Rosa spp.), crepe myrtles (Lagerstroemia spp.) and Japanese maple trees (Acer palmatum). Putting these plants in your garden is akin to rolling…
The cell cycle and mitosis lab consisted of three parts covering the essentials of identifying and recording of observations of the different phases of mitosis. The objectives activity IA and for IB were to provide us a visualization of mitosis and apply the classification of each phase and its role in the cell cycle. In activity IC, our objective was to carry out slide making techniques that will be a fundamental skill in future labs. If mitosis takes a relatively small time to carry…
plant part used and part of the body which is touched with it.
1. Abelomoschus manihot (L.) Medik (Malvaceae)
Local name- ‘Ranbhendi’ MBP-13
The root pieces are strung and worn as garland to cure jaundice.
2. Abrus precatorius L. (Fabaceae)
Local name- ‘Gunj’, ‘Tingli’ MBP-27
The roots of the plant are kept for few minutes in the navel of a pregnant woman, it gives relief in delivery pains and facilitates child birth.
3. Achyranthes aspera L (Amaranthaceae)
athletes go to schools to sharpen their minds, so they may build their skills by learning to better themselves on the field. That way they can be drafted for the major leagues as professional athletes. As a result, their dreams could be met, so they could sweat as much as possible obtain bruises from hits and tackles, and make touch down on the field.
The National College Athletes Associate allows for athlete’s compensation no less than 5000 dollars a semester. Meaning, the university that makes…
the cosmic microwave radiation would kill the seeds and the radishes would not be able to germinate or grow. People could start to try to find a way to let radish seeds germinate and grow in microwave radiation so that if humans needed to colonize somewhere they would be able to grow plants that could normally not grow in space or on another planet.

Is the carbon dioxide emission rate per gram (ppm/s/g) of an outer onion (Allium cepa) layer, greater than the carbon dioxide emission rate per gram (ppm/s/g) of an inner layer?
Cellular respiration is a catabolic pathway that breaks down complex molecules to more simple ones which release stored energy (World of Biology). The process of cellular respiration produces carbon dioxide (CO₂). It is powered by the oxygen that we take in as we breathe…
