9a to 1p
Serving size: 1
Material: Bamboo rolling mat, a butter knife, a sharp knife, and a bowl of warm water.
- 1 cup of warm cooked White rice
- 1 Seaweed
- 2 Crab classic leg style (Can be bought in package at ShopRite)
- 1 Cucumber green
- 1 Avocado green
- 2 tbsps (30 g) of regular cream cheese
Step 1: Preparing:
Start by cutting the filling ingredients. For the cucumber, slide it into long pieces by its length. For the avocado, cut it into two halves then use a spoon to scoop the meat out of its skin. Next, slide the half avocado by its length.
Step 2: Filling:
Put the seaweed on the bamboo rolling mat (make sure the smooth side faces down). Then spread the warm cooked white rice evenly on the seaweed. Next, place the fillings length-wide next to each other. For the cream cheese, use a butter knife to make a slide of cream cheese, and place it next to other fillings.
Step 3: Rolling:
Begin with the side nearest from you and roll it further away. Avoid rolling the mat into the sushi. Use the mat to tighten the roll.
Step 4: Cutting:
Dip the sharp knife into warm water. Using sawing (back-and-forth) motion and very light pressure, slice each sushi roll crosswise into eight or more pieces. For easier cutting, frequently dip knife blade into hot water.
* Approximately, 70% is processed food. All, but cucumber and avocado, are packaged and precooked.
* Approximately, the serving is 300 calories, total fat 10g, 10g of sugar. The body will deal with this food by breaking down the nutritions, then use them. The extra will be stored in muscle tissues and liver. As always, the unnecessary parts will be[come] waste. This type of food is not the healthiest, but also not the worst. One might not get fat from it, since there is little calories, sugar, and fat.
* The crab is packaged in Wisconsin, seaweeds are from Korea, rice is from Thailand, Cream cheese is made in Philadelphia, cucumber grows locally, and avocado is shipped Guatemala. So the farthest traveler would be rice. So my meal traveled around thousand of miles before reaching my mouth. Most sadly, none of them was organically grown. On top of that, the process of growing rice is particularly harmful to the environment, due to the modern model of farming as to increase number of harvests per year quantitatively and qualitatively by using pesticide and GMO seeds. Similarly with avocado and cucumber, where the new market set up by large corporation created a new farming culture of capitalist oriented.
* The meal costs around $10. It is as cheap as fast food. There is n regulation on the import of milled rice. For avocado, it needs to meet a certain requirement by a grading system issue from USDA. Other products have no regulation. The major corporation that hold the ground of fruit and vegetable import is Dole Food, which is also the largest producer of fruit and vegetable.
* These food items can be bought at any super market, and restaurants. The ingredients are well traveled, and that they are grown from GMO seed and went through a highly biochemical process of farming. Since the soil and climate of the US limit the kind of plant and animals to be farmed, there are certain type of agricultural products that need to be imported such as wet rice. Beside these types, there are possibilities of growing avocado, cucumber in the backyard.Personal Reflection:
There is definitively a tremendous growth of my knowledge about food, particularly the food industry. I remember walking into the class with a very vague idea of how the two phenomenons science and society are intersected and related. However, with the discussions around different topics, from Fracking to Food Inc, I have consolidated the understanding as I been through the class.The biggest problem in my view is the ubiquity of GMOs in daily dietary and its negative effect on human health and the environment. It is even scarier when one re-examined their life and realized that they have been raised on bio-chemical food. The unit also pushes me to be more active in my diet, as I always need to be conscious of what I am eating. At the same time, I have been having conversations with different people about the issues with our food system. The movie Food, Inc has changed my view of what I eat, as well as where are my foods coming from. I have been more critical in shopping for groceries lately because of that.
There are certainly changes that I could take. The first one is to know my food, and minimize what is unnecessary. On top of that, adding more vegetable into my diet is another step to take.

This project required me to take photos of five different people. These photos were taken in the same position and around the same place. By doing this, I ensured that there was no difference between the pictures that would drastically affect the difference in body structure. All of the pictures were in taken in a natural and relaxed position. After taking all those pictures, I went into Photoshop and cut the photos in fourths. The fourths consisted of head, shoulders to waist, waist to ankle, and ankle to end of shoe. My intentions were to put a persons head on top of another persons shoulders on top of another persons legs with someone else’s feet. However, I kept the heads next to each other at the top of the page, and spread the rest of the parts of the people throughout the rest of this page.
Within this project, I focused on what I wanted to express through my art. I wanted to convey the different parts of people and how they can be looked at separately and more in depth. I wanted to show why certain parts of the body are a certain way on certain people. The final project conveys how people are meant to have certain features about themselves. If they are not on their own bodies than they should just be in space.
How did you group go about making a decision for what to focus on for the project?
We just told each other to work on each others part. And, who ever had problems we would help out. Also, when coming down to a decision on what to focus on we just agreed

We have to always change. Because, no one's perfect. Everyone has there own prefrefence so they are responsible for there own learning
My understanding of the electoral process improved, since I talked with someone close with the process so, he told me a lot of the things that he knew and he told me some things that I already knew, but he was a lot of help.
I thought it being written down would be the best way because people can read the interview and really understand what the person is saying other then a video because sometimes a video can go too fast and not explain anything.
Why I choose to the the Non Discrimination Act was because I feel that it is wrong that judge people based on looks and their gender identity. equality is the most important thing to have. Not everyone understands how important equality is. My method for choosing a flow map was because I thought It would be easier way to tell a story If I was to do this project again I would choose a different method then what I did and also staying more on top of things with the organization process. The research of my bill taught me that it can be either passed or fail. In my case my bill kept getting re- introduced and brought into congress. As of today they are still fighting to pass the law officially. The process was harder then what I imagined.
- Fellow Sheets (Flour Sheets) One pack 20 sheets
- Canola oil half cup
- Almonds half pound
- Sugar 4 tbsp
- Syrup (4 small cups of sugar and 1 1/2 cups of water and 1 tbsp of lemon juice)
1. Bring the a rectangular tray and brush it over with the canola oil so it doesn't stick to the pan
2. Divide the 20 sheets into 2 groups: one group for the bottom and one group for the top.
3. Put 10 flour sheets on the tray for the bottom and every two sheets you put down, brush the whole surface with canola oil.
4. Put half a pound of almonds into a food processor and grind until it is in small pieces.
5. Take the almonds out of the food processor and place into another bowl. Then proceed to add the 4 tbsp of sugar into the almonds and add the vanilla in as well.
6. Put in a bit of water and mix.
7. Spread the almonds onto the sheets you prepared and then take the other group of 10 sheets and every two sheets you put down, brush the surface of the sheet with canola oil.
8. Then proceed to cut the whole thing into small square pieces. (you can make the pieces big or small). Then spread canola oil all over the top.
9. Then put the whole tray into the oven on 325˚ for 30 minutes. Then after the 30 minutes has passed, raise the temperature to 450˚ for 5 minutes exact.
(Meanwhile you already prepared the syrup just by mixing the 4 small cups of sugar, 1 1/2 cups of water, together and then put them on the stove until it boils. Then lower the flame a bit and add the 1 tbsp of lemon juice in. Let it proceed to boil until the mix looks like a honey mixture. Let it cool completely.)
10. Proceed to take the tray out.
11. Right when you take it out, spread the cooled syrup on top of the whole baklava.
a. I would say that its approximately 25% processed and 75% whole foods. Everything is whole except the Almonds. The almonds are the only processed.
b. The caloric count is about 250 calories, about 7 grams of sugar id
assume, and about 10 g of fat I'd say. My body will store some of sugar
that it obtained from the baklava I made and get rid of what it doesnt
need to the liver. Some health issues that would come up if I ate this
meal every day would be diabetes because of the amount of sugar it has,
possibly get sick because I am not taking in certain amounts of
nutrition, just alot of protein, sugar.
c. About everything came from the United States I'd say, but I would say that it was mostly grown in California, because it is a popular place to grow many ingredients, especially the almonds. The sheets and vanilla traveled far I know because they were bought from an Arabic Store, in which most of the products were made in Middle Eastern countries. It was not organically grown. The processing for the sheets may effect the environment, but on the package it said it was processed in a factory, so the factory probably uses gas and that gas goes to the atmosphere, etc.
d. The meal, not counting everything in all of the packaging (only the amount of ingredients used) approximately costed 10 dollars. It is so much better than fast food because 2 sandwichs from Mcdonalds would cost about 10 dollars while this 10 dollar pastry would last you a very long time because of the large quantity made from the partial amount of ingredients.
Fellow flour sheets
Berkley and Jensen
I would say that Berkley and Jensen and Wesson are big companies and the others are smaller espeicially because they are from middle eastern companies. I believe that there is always a bigger company that controls everything.
e. I'd say that they probably added some preservatives and also grew them in a certain way to make them either grow faster or grow a certain size/ have a certain taste etc. Just like we saw in the movie, how they use different fertilizers and feed differently makes the product different than if you were to grow normally. Many companies say certain things to attract customers. They will say anything to please the people; money over everything basically. Growing the ingredients myself might not give me the best quality that you get from using different fertizlizers and such, but it would still be fresh and "clean".
If it weren't for this quarter, I definitely would not have known this much about food and the real story behind where your food comes from. I learned things that I really was surprised about, such as the point that 90% of all foods are either made with or from corn, food conditions (how they are slaughtered, treated, etc.), how the food industry has a hold on everyone, and how every single word you say can be used against you. I could keep naming so many more things I learned, but it would make this more of a list, not a reflection. Learning all this information in this unit, making presentations on the Food Inc. movie, presenting all that infromation; it made me think about what I can do to inform people about what is truly in their food and how their food is produced. Many people don't get the chance to be informed like we did, and its a problem. People need to become educated and find out more; do research, do interviews, go the extra step. The government doesn't want us to know about the truth, but if we knew the truth and we spread the word, it would impact the world in a big way, and possibly make change in the food industry. Another problem in our food system is the point that its basically all about the money. If the people don't know about it, then why tell them and possibly lose the money? People have to really fight to put all of this out in the open. After watching and learning so much this unit, it has actually change my eating habits in a big way. I started eating less outside, I encouraged my parents to buy many products from the amish stores around the block and they finally did so, and I even started reading the nutrition facts and trying to avoid the bad stuff like high fructose corn syrup, etc. These choices have really played a great impact. I stopped spending so much money, I'm becoming more informed, and I'm more content with what I'm putting into my mouth. I think that if everyone were to take the same step I took, it would really impact their lives for the good as well. In conclusion, this unit has really taught me alot, and though many people might not think the same way I did after this unit, I'm really glad I learned what I did. From Food Inc. to organic/non-organic foods, this unit was a great learning experience.
Food Rules Slide
In the Food unit we watched “Food Inc,” a documentary about the food industry. We also read several articles by columnist Michel Pollen and discussed the problems and practices about the food we eat.
I noticed we were rather biased as group against the food industry and no one tried to defend them. I also noted everyone acted with emotion but failed to come up with a reasonable solution. Also folks tend to blame big corporations on all the world evils that are every ones fault and no ones fault.
We read a little too much of Michel Pollen I would have liked to read some one else. I am sure others have written on the topic and would want some different viewpoints.
What I liked was the style of presentation how we learned one little thing at a time and head to answer questions that would help us retain that information.
And of course I liked the feast. It was tasty.
I’m rather disappointed that no one listened to my solution, which I thought was brilliant. What we could do is everyone (in America) puts in five to twenty dollars and we collectively sue the big food corporations. That we even the playing ground and make sure they can’t say, “this is what are costumers asked for.”
I think we would do much better if we didn’t have other things to think about then the food industry because we were all to busy to do any thing about it.
in all a good unit but it could have been better.
Wash Vegetables break the lettuce pieces in half and put in a large bowl. Though baby tomatoes in bowl and toss well. Skin Cucumber, cut it into little pieces, and dump in bowl. Skin carrot, cut it into little pieces, and dump in bowl. Toss well.
One part vinegar
Three parts olive oil
A pinch of parsley
A pinch of basil
Get out a small bowl. Put in vinegar and oil; add a pinch of parsley and a pinch of basil. Shake well before stirring.
Salad is a traditional healthy choice when overloaded with salad dressing, bread, and meat. My dad always puts salad out with every dinner. Usually comprising of lettuce and some other vegetables. I bought the ingredients to this salad at whole and they cost too much. I would have bought them at the ninth street market it closed at the time and ninth street market food doesn’t last long.
Well we all answered the journal question and as a group we each shared our ideas. Then talked about each idea and then all came to an agreement on which one would our benchmark. Collectively we chose Combining National Popular Vote and Instant Runoff as our focus topic.
If we all as humans come together, positive change will happen. All age groups can benefit from one an other. In order to create and support change we need to get rid of all the negative energy and replace it with positivity.
I realized with the electoral college it does not benefit the people from small states which means every voters' voice is not being heard and that is not a democracy. That is exactly why we chose slogan "got democracy? … Be YOUr government" We want voters from all ages to feel as though their vote is valuable.
Our marketing scheme was to mimic the successful "got milk?" campaign. As a group we all decided a print ad's slogan needs to be one thing and that was universal. A universal slogan is appealing to all age groups. The best thing about using a universal slogan is that it will always be remembered by your audience. Because we wanted to target an older and younger audience we chose to have a slogan that could be used as an entire phrase or broken into two separate ones with the same amount of impact.
"got democracy?… Be YOUr government!"
