Food Poisoning

One of the most common infections today is food poisoning. The food might look appetizing and smell delicious but without your knowledge it might contain tiny bacteria that could poison your digestive system.
Symptoms of food poisoning are:
  • Nausea
  • Diarrhoea
  • Vomiting
  • Fever
How to Avoid Food Poisoning
  • Make sure it always kept either cold or hot. Bacteria cannot multiply below 19C or above 71C.
  • Make sure all seafood, meat and poultry are cooked thoroughly. Cooking these foods to an internal temperature of 78C will kill the bacteria present. Be careful about tasting food before it is thoroughly cooked.
  • Leftovers should be reheated to 78C or above, and note just warmed up.
  • Wash your hands before cooking or handling food, and between handling cooked and raw food.
  • Keep your kitchen equipment clean at all times, especially when cooking and handling food.
  • Discard food in the refrigerator that is covered with mould or if it smells bad.
  • Clean the refrigerator thoroughly.
Food poisoning usually occurs within one to six hours after eating. It should be over in a day or two. If the problem persists and you become severely ill, see a doctor immediately.

TV is Bad for Children?

Although people generally say that television is bad for children, research has proven otherwise. it has been found that TV is an interactive tool that encourage children to develop their social and communicative skills. By watching TV, they are more carefree, open and find it easy to communicate with others. TV also helps them develop their English language skill through programmes like Sesame Street and Playhouse Disney. It is no secret that their listening abilities are enhanced as well as their speaking and grammar skills.

Ultimately, TV also provides them a cheap avenue to first-class knowledge through channels like National Geographic, Discovery, Animal Planet, TV IQ, and the various other educational mediums available. Clearly, TV has plenty to offer to our children. it is a waste if parents misunderstand the wealth that TV provides to their children and prevent them from watching it on the excuse that it spoils them.

Tips to improve your English (Tips 3, 4, 5)

Occasionally talk to or e-mail your friends in English. Many people find this a bit false or embarrassing, but if you think of it as a study and set a particular time and/or place, it is no different from studying maths together.

Read English language magazines, like books and newspapers. If you can read two versions of the same magazines, that could make understanding it much easier.

Watching English children films or TV programmes. Some of the basic English pronunciation can be learnt from these programmes. Not only the structure of the story is simplified but it also motivates you to watch the programmes. Like good language learning material, the same language is often repeated to make it memorable, and the use of catchy songs can increase this positive effect on your memory.

Tips to improve your English (Tips 1 & 2)

Listen to English music. Even listening to music while doing something else can help a little such as listening to the tone of English speech, although the more time and attention you give to a song, the more you will learn from listening to it again in the future.

Read the lyrics to a song. Although just listening to a song in English can be good way of really learning the words, you will need to take some time to read the lyrics of the song with a dictionary. If the lyrics are not given in the CD booklet you may able to find them on the internet, but please note that some lyric sites deliberately put a few errors into their lyrics for copyright reasons. Once you have read and understand the lyrics, this can be a good way of understanding how sounds changes in natural and informal speech.

What is Marketing?

What does the term marketing mean to you? Many people think it means the same as personal selling. Others think marketing is the same as personal selling and advertising. Still others believe marketing has something to do with making products available in stores, arranging displays, and maintaining, inventories of products for future sale.
Actually, marketing includes all of these activities and more. Marketing has two facets. First, it is a philosophy, an attitude, a perspective, or a management orientation that stresses customer satisfaction. Second, marketing is a set of activities used to implement this philosophy. The American Marketing Association’s definition encompasses both perspectives: “Marketing is the process of planning and executing the conception, pricing, promotion, and distribution of ideas, goods, and services to create exchange that satisfy individual and organizational goal”.
