Rastafarianism began in Jamaica during the 1930s after the crowing of Ras Tafari as Negus of Ethiopia, “King of Kings”. After the coronation his title was changed to Emperor Haile Selassie I. Selassie also took the titles, "Conquering Lion of the Tribe of Judah, Elect of God and King of the Kings of Ethiopia." This coronation was regarded as the fulfillment of a prophecy by black political leader, Marcus Garvey, that “Princes shall come out of Egypt; Ethiopia shall soon stretch out her hands unto God”, which is based on verse 31 of Psalm 68 of the Bible.

This prophecy became the foundation of the Rastafari movement.

The religion takes its name from Haile Selassie's original name, Ras Tafari Makonnen.

Selassie is regarded by Rastafarians as the Black Messiah or Jah Rastafari. He is the central figure of salvation who will save blacks from white suppressors and reunite them with their homeland, Africa.

LEADERS OF RASTA

Leonard P. Howell is said to have had the greatest impact on the development of Rastafarian ideology in Jamaica in the 1930s.

Howell, who had served in the third Ashanti War between England and Ghana in the Gold Coast in 1901, preached the divinity of Haile Selassie and said that blacks would gain the superiority over their oppressors, who are referred to as ‘Babylon’.

THE ROYAL VISIT

In 1966, after persons who had heard of Haile Selassie’s visit to Trinidad requested that he make a stopover in Kingston. On April 21, 1966 thousands of onlookers, including hundreds of Rastafarians, gathered at the airport to witness his arrival. Rastas had believed that the day of

...Martin T. Ameling Teacher: Yonika Willis GE117 Composition 2 April 28 2011 Fast food portion size vs. nutrition Fast food portions have grown in size over the years. The smaller portions were not necessarily healthier for the consumer depending on the fast food consumed. As fast food portions have grown so have most American’s waistlines. In this age of bigger is better fast food portion sizes are not necessarily healthily portion sizes. Portion sizes, Nutrition Facts and Government Agencies & Surveys. Modern portion sizes are 3 to 16 time the recommended serving size, Fast food beverages range from 12oz to 64oz+ depending on the restaurant. “A study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association found that Americans consume around 10 percent more calories than they did in the 1970s” According to Monte. “The NHLBI (National Heart, Lung and Blood institute) tells us that a serving of meat should be the size of a deck of cards while one pancake should be the size of a CD.” According to Monte. “While it is clear that the reasons for the epidemic are multifaceted, survey and economic data suggest that much of the rise in obesity can be attributed to an increase in caloric intake” According to Downs, Loewenstein & Wisdom. The average 12 ounce serving of mountain dew has 170 calories, 0 grams fat, and 46g Crabs and 0 grams protein.

...Obesity in America Obesity continues to rank No. 1 on the list of nutrition-related problems in American society. In 2009, just one state -- Colorado -- had a population of obese people below 20 percent of its total population, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Childhood obesity continues to be a major concern because children represent the future of America, and obesity numbers among them continue to rise. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report that in the 30 years leading up to 2007, obesity among children between ages 6 to 19 more than tripled. Obesity not only impacts lifestyle but can also lead to lower self-esteem, cause depression and discomfort in social situations, and significantly diminish quality of life. Health Effects of Obesity Obesity also increases a person’s risk for developing serious disease, such as: * High blood pressure (Additional fat tissue in the body needs oxygen and nutrients in order to live, which requires the blood vessels to circulate more blood to the fat tissue.) * Diabetes (Obesity is the major cause of type 2 diabetes) * Heart disease (Atherosclerosis, Coronary artery disease, heart attack) * Sleep apnea (which causes people to stop breathing for brief period, interrupts sleep throughout the night and causes sleepiness during the day) * Cancer * Psycho social effect (In a culture where often......

...Professor Virginia Uhley FNS 370 14 April 2014 The Vegan Diet: A Healthy Risk Consuming foods rich in nutrients is more likely to reduce the risk of degenerative diseases than taking a broad array of supplements for many reasons. Research has shown that people who eat more vegetables and fruits have lower risks of several diseases including heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and high blood pressure. Supplements cannot provide all of the nutrients of food. Although many of the same vitamins are provided, it is not proven that vitamins are solely responsible for reducing disease. Whole foods also contain many other naturally occurring substances that help protect you from many diseases. For example, grains provide essential fiber that prevents diabetes and heart disease (Mayo Clinic, 2013). Supplements containing too many individual nutrients can actually cause health problems due to toxicity and vitamin interactions. Since there is no significant data to suggest that vitamin intake is the sole reason for reducing specific diseases, healthy food consumption is a better route to good health. * Some people believe that consuming food is not any more likely to prevent the risk of degenerative diseases than taking supplements. Many of the same vitamins in minerals found in whole foods are provided in supplements. Many Americans are struggling to meet daily recommendations in their diet. Poor food consumption is damaging health and a broad array of supplements can help people......

...Human Nutrition A term that is used to encompass nutrient recommendations produced by the National Academy of Sciences and the Food and Nutrition Board is called Dietary Reference Intakes (DRI). DRI is also a common term for a guideline of reference values used to assess and plan a healthy individual’s nutrient intake (Wardlaw et. al., 2011, p. 60-61). During a consecutive three-day period, protein intakes, carbohydrate intakes, lipid intakes, macronutrient intake ranges, fiber intake ranges, and dietary modifications are recorded and analyzed in iProfile. Recorded Protein, Carbohydrate, and Lipid Intakes. Macronutrients are substances needed for growth, metabolism, and for other body functions. Macronutrients are nutrients that provide calories or energy (Gary R. 1998) Good day mam, i noticed you graded me a zero in the week one game quiz. I was only added to the class a day before the start date and i did not have access to the class until the first day of class, so i managed and rush to get all my assignments done that same day.

Fast Food Nutrition: the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

...It would not be a surprise that television, internet, and any other kinds of ads of big fast food companies such as McDonalds® or Subway® have successfully advance their ideas of healthy foods in many of Americans. Yet all of these wealthy corporations, along with many other smaller companies, have many ways to sell their products. These methods could be underhanded loaded with jargon. Information of simple knowledge overfilled with confusing and sometimes random information that otherwise will be too insignificant for people to put an effort to learning about. There are also times where information is overly simplified and have no real background to make a worthy judgment. Amidst all of the fallacies in the fast food industry, there exist reliable sources of information. In recent years, there has been an increase of connecting ideas of the transformation of fasts foods. Although some arguments claim the reason is one clause over the other, some will divert and stray off topic. They exert random facts to either make the claim reasonable or by overflowing them with sources that seems reliable from authoritative figures. Rabin article “Proximity to Fast Food a Factor in Student Obesity” goes to say: Ninth graders whose schools are within a block of a fast-food outlet are more likely to be obese than students whose schools are a quarter of a mile or more away, according to a study of millions of schoolchildren by economists at the University of California and Columbia......

...Comparing Nutrition Labels Nutrition labels are intended to help people make healthier choices when it comes to the food they eat. Consumers recognize nutrition labels as tools to help improve their health and can find an abundance of valuable information pertaining to specific items. The presence of nutritional information may influence the consumer to switch from unhealthy food products towards healthy food products, but only if they understand how to read a nutrition label. Reading a food label at first can be confusing, however it will help the consumer to select foods that will provide the accurate amount of nutrients and energy that the body needs. There are specific things to look for on a food label that can differentiate an unhealthy food from a healthy food. When comparing an avocado to Ben and Jerry’s Chunky Monkey ice cream, we know that an avocado is the healthier choice, but it is important to understand why. When comparing nutrition labels, the first place you should start is the serving size and the number of servings in the package. Serving size is used to make it easier to compare similar foods. The serving size on a package affects the number of calories and all nutrient amounts within the product. For example, the serving size for an avocado is based on 1/5 of a medium avocado, or 1 oz. With such a small portion size, an avocado is packed with vitamins, minerals, and essential. Conversely, Ben and Jerry’s Chunky Monkey nutrition label offers a much......

Hence, in the light of the above goal, this paper investigated the present influence of students’ feeding habits on their academic achievement in Chemistry in Nigeria. The study employed a survey research design and the sample for the study consisted of 3,000 students selected from ten States in Nigeria through multistage sampling technique. Data were collected through the use of a self-developed instrument titled “Students’ Feeding Habits Scale” (SFHS) and a proforma which was used to retrieve the academic performance of the selected students from records. Four hypotheses were generated for the study and tested at 0.05 level of significance. The results of the study revealed poor feeding as one of the major factors responsible for poor students’ academic performance at school. The paper therefore, confirms that poverty and hunger is still the order of the day in Nigeria. The paper concluded with strong recommendation for the...

...P2: Knowing the different characteristics of nutrients is very important as it will enable you to understand and offer suitable foods to ensure your nutritional needs are met. Macronutrients are the nutrients that provide calories and energy in a diet, nutrients are needed for growth, metabolism and for other body functions. As “macro” means large, macronutrients are the nutrients needed in large amounts, There are three different types of macronutrients; carbohydrates which is made up of a large group of organic compounds occurring in foods and living tissues, these are included in starch, sugars and cellulose. Protein is the digestion to amino acids and has relationships with muscle mass; protein also affects the activity and metabolic rates. Lipids are the third main class of macronutrients needed in human nutrition. Lipids are found primarily in meats, and dairy foods. They are a class of organic compounds that are fatty acids. Micronutrients are different from macronutrients (like carbohydrates, proteins and fat) they are only necessary in tiny amounts. Nevertheless micronutrients are essential for good health, if you have a micronutrient deficiencies it can cause serious health problems. Micronutrient includes a lot of dietary minerals such as zinc and iodine these are necessary for the healthy functioning of your body’s system, from bone growth to brain function. Micronutrients are commonly known as “vitamins” the vitamins they hold are vitamin A, C, D, and K. Making......

...Cultural care diversity refers to the differences in meanings, values, or acceptable mode of care within or between different groups of people. Culture influences every aspect of human life, including beliefs, values, and customs regarding health care (Edelman & Mandle, 2010) as nurse it is our duty to be culturally competent in order to provide our patients with the best holistic care we can. Additionally, I believe it’s not only by understanding someone’s culture that as a nurse I can be able to offer a patient teaching that she can actually use. Working as a nurse in pediatrics, I was faced with a situation where a mother of three kids was always in the hospital (almost every two weeks), each time she came there was an issue for instance, on one occasion one of her kids had burn wounds, and in another occasion another kid was having blood stool and so forth. Following the stories and looking at the flow of information they found out something was missing. To make matters worse, on every visit she wanted a letter from the hospital manager to get the husband out of work and send him home to take care of sick family. Coming from the same culture as the lady (Africa), I talked to her and found out that the husband was making the wife induce illness to the kids or make herself sick so that he could be sent back home from the army. According to the culture from where the woman came from, women and children are not allowed to speak up, and the only person who talked in the......
