Airborne Honey

...Interview Q&A   I. Why did Emart choose to import Manuka honey? a. In recent years, consumers have been increasingly aware of the quality of the honeys they are buying in the market, and they are increasingly demanding quality and credibility. Because of this, New Zealand’s Manuka honey has been gaining in popularity, and we wanted to be able to give our customers a high quality, healthy honey like Manuka at affordable prices. b. Before Emart imported Manuka Honey, Korean consumers couldn’t buy affordable Manuka Honey in any supermarkets.   II. So why did Emart choose to import from Airborne Honey as its first Manuka Honey? a. We chose Airborne Honey because of their credibility in two main areas: i. Airborne Honey is New Zealand’s oldest honey company at 102 years old. ii. Airborne Honey has a great quality control system, where they focus on 3 specific points: 1. They test exactly how much pollen is in every batch, and guarantee all honeys meet international CODEX standards (UN FAO/WHO guidelines). 2. Airborne Honey uses a patented system that produces undamaged, natural honeys with extremely low heat damage. 3. Airborne Honey has a very detailed traceability system, where they can tell customers exactly where their honey came from---and pinpoint it on a map of New Zealand a. For example, instead of saying a general location, such as “Your honey came from the Seoul area of Korea, Airborne could say that this particular jar of honey came from beehives on the backside of the......

Sweet as Honey

...Jennimar Mendez Mendez1 Mr. Stehle English 098-108 April 9, 2013 Sweet as Honey Many will agree that Facebook is much sweeter than Myspace. I had my first taste of Facebook a few years ago, and just like honey. It sticks to anyone who enters the site. I was addicted to the games almost immediately, I found myself logging in and out nine times a day. I enjoyed the games, posting my pictures for comments by friends and looking at what they were posting themselves; a new hobby for me was in full effect. It was great being able to do these things and more on Facebook, but the best part was being able to type in my daily status. It felt great knowing my list of friends were paying attention to what I had to say, especially since I was ignored before Facebook existed. I enjoyed typing “good morning my facelookerz” or “workbound gotta make that paper.” Facebook was my therapy; the second I would log on, the problems in my daily life were completely blocked . Everything was great--until I had the desire to locate classmates from my childhood. I wanted to locate classmates who attended Alexander Burger J.H.S. in New York with me. It was aggravating how much time was spent trying to locate them; there were at least two-hundred students ...

Conventional Farms vs. Organic Farms

...Jasmine Soto Conventional Farms Vs. Organic Farms When explaining to someone the advantages and disadvantages of both conventional and organic farms, it is important to start off with the basics: defining the two. A conventional farm is a farm which uses growing methods which are the most universally used and widespread. Conventional farming is not dedicated to alternative methods of growing foods or raising livestock which means they participate in the use of chemical plant protectant, fertilizers, in addition to heavy animal farming. When describing organic farming, one would say organic farming is a farming method by which farmers develop and cultivate a plethora of vegetables, dairy products, grains, meat and of course fruits. Organic farming was originally developed as a way to reduce the amount of pollution which may be produced. In addition organic farming was also widely used to preserve water and soil quality. The idea of organic farming puts into use the natural methods to avoid any harm to the farming. One of the most notable advantages of conventional farming is un-doubtfully that crop turn out amongst conventional farms is larger than that of organic farms, while at the same time using the same amount of land. Advanced farming tools and machinery are used along side what is considered “sophisticated, aggressive plows” which also assists with the larger sized crops. Because conventional farms are producing mass amounts of crops and livestocks frequently,......

Saving the Honey Bees

...Zabrina Campos M. Lynn Sullivan Environmental Issues September 12, 2013 Saving the Honey Bees How common is it for certain specie to disappear without a trace? Could this be possible? Apparently it is. Since 2006 the Honey bees have become a great deal of worry not just in the US, but around the world. They have begun to disappear without leaving any trace behind, denominated, Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD). This phenomenon that has been hunting many for a few years has not yet been understood. Honey Bees are an essential part of human survival. Thanks to them we are able to eat every day. Many of the plant’s survival depend on the honey bees since “one third of the world's agricultural production depends on the European honeybee”(Cox-Foster ). They are the ones that can pollinate a certain amount of plants much quicker and easily compared to other insects. There have been many hypotheses concerning the loss of bees in the past years. One suspect that caused the disappearance of honey bees was the vorroa mites. These are parasites greatly responsible for the loss of a large number of bee colonies between 1987 and 2006. However, as the bees were studied there was found many unknown symptoms. This is how a hypothesis was developed stating that something was making bees more fragile. Its immune system was becoming weaker making them suffer different types of infections. However, the numbers of the vorroa mites were not extremely significant as to be the ones killing the......

Honey & Mumford

...Reflections of two pragmatists: A critique of Honey and Mumford's learning styles Caple, Jim, Martin, Paul. Industrial and Commercial Training. Guilsborough: 1994. Vol. 26, Iss. 1; pg. 16, 5 pgs Abstract (Summary) It is argued that Honey and Mumford's (1982) contribution in analyzing learning styles has been productive in focusing educators' and trainers' attention on individual differences in learning situations. Beyond this, though, it is felt that their theoretical approach is not altogether helpful and is at times confused and confusing. It is also observed that their means of identifying individual styles may be flawed. If measurements of personality are required, there are more valid and reliable instruments available. If it is required to find out more about trainees' preferred ways of learning, why not simply ask the trainees' themselves to consider some key questions, such as: 1. What is learning? 2. What learning experiences have been beneficial to you? 3. Do you tend to avoid certain ways or opportunities for learning? 4. How can others best be of help to you in enabling you to enhance your learning and self-development? By exploring these, and related, themes with facilitators it is likely that trainees will develop clarity in terms of what works for them. This approach may be seen to be sufficient and perhaps preferable to Honey and Mumford's approach, which is quasi-scientific and unnecessarily complex. » Jump to indexing (document details) Full Text ......

Honey Bees

...as a food. Pollen is one of the richest and purest natural foods, consisting of up to 35% protein, 10% sugars, carbohydrates, enzymes, minerals, and vitamins A (carotenes), B1 (thiamin), B2 (riboflavin), B3 (nicotinic acid), B5 (panothenic acid), C (ascorbic acid), H (biotin), and R (rutine). Honey Honey is used by the bees for food all year round. There are many types, colors and flavors of honey, depending upon its nectar source. The bees make honey from the nectar they collect from flowering trees and plants. Honey is an easily digestible, pure food. Honey is hydroscopic and has antibacterial qualities. Eating local honey can fend off allergies. Beeswax Secreted from glands, beeswax is used by the honeybee to build honey comb. It is used by humans in drugs, cosmetics, artists' materials, furniture polish and candles. Propolis Collected by honeybees from trees, the sticky resin is mixed with wax to make a sticky glue. The bees use this to seal cracks and repair their hive. It is used by humans as a health aid, and as the basis for fine wood varnishes. Royal Jelly The powerful, milky substance that turns an ordinary bee into a Queen Bee. It is made of digested pollen and honey or nectar mixed with a chemical secreted from a gland in a nursing bee's head. It commands premium prices rivaling imported caviar, and is used by some as a dietary supplement and fertility stimulant. It is loaded with all of the B vitamins.

More Than Honey

...More than honey The movie takes a good look at bee colonies in the USA, Australia, Switzerland and China. Throughout the movie, its creator Markus Imhoof repeats Einstein’s saying:“When the bee population dies out, humans will die out 4 years later.“ Seems ridiculous and phony, but when you take a moment to think about the fact that one third of our food is pollinated by bees, you start to think differently. One third may be pollinated by bees, but at least another third relies on the pollination of honeybees. Yet the bee colonies are starting to disappear. The movie tries to explain why and how while showing how they are being treated in different environments. The movie describes brilliantly how the bees live: how they work together in their hive from the moment they are born. They remain loyal to their family no matter what and work to create a queen and keep the colony running like clockwork. The movie shows the many reasons that together make the lethal combination for the bees: toxins, transportation and diseases. To say honestly, it is heartbreaking, even for the viewer, to see a beekeeper open a hive and see thousands of little dead bodies on the ground with no particular reason. I guess that is what the movie relies on - the compassion and heart of the viewer. In China, once Mao Zedung told to kill all the sparrow because they eat the seeds on the crops. As a result there were so many insects that they had to start destroying them too. Due to that in some......

Honey for Dressing

...experience 7. Clinical tradition 8. Anecdotes FIGURE 1 Source : Jasper M. (2006) Professional Development, Reflection and Decision-Making London Blackwell Publications page 144 I searched for various types of evidence that examined the effectiveness of honey as a wound dressing. I selected honey as it is commercially available and the patient could afford this as a wound dressing. To objectively find appropriate evidence for using honey I conducted searches using Medline, Cumulative Index of Nursing and Allied Health Literature (CINAHL) which are important sources of health research (Hamer and Collinson, 1999), and the Web of Science databases. I also used Department of Health (DH) England database, which revealed links to best evidence in the form of English National Tissue Viability Guidelines (ENTVG 2012) within which, one section refers to alternative therapies. Honey is included among these alternative therapies. Other sourced literature will be used to support my discussion and have been obtained from a variety of professional and healthcare organisations as well as books, journals, government papers, and key documents relevant to the topic. Using such keywords as ‘leg ulcer AND dressings And Honey ‘and similar combinations, the CINAHL database yielded 21 articles of which none was of direct relevance to my question of inquiry. The same search on Medline database yielded 121 articles of which about 3 were of direct relevance. I implemented the same......

Honey Production in India

...Honey Production in India. Introduction Honey and beekeeping have a long history in India. Honey was the first sweet food tasted by the ancient Indian inhabiting rock shelters and forests. He hunted bee hives for this gift of god. India has some of the oldest records of beekeeping in the form of paintings by prehistoric man in the rock shelters. With the development of civilization, honey acquired an unique status in the lives of the ancient Indians. They regarded honey as a magical substance that controlled the fertility of women, cattle, as also their lands and crops. The recent past has witnessed a revival of the industry in the rich forest regions along the sub-Himalayan mountain ranges and the Western Ghats, where it has been practiced in its simplest form. Formation of Honey Honey is produced by bees as a food source. In cold weather or when fresh food sources are scarce, bees use their stored honey as their source of energy. By contriving for bee swarms to nest in artificial hives, people have been able to semidomesticate the insects, and harvest excess honey. The worker bees raise larvae and collect the nectar that will become honey in the hive. Leaving the hive, they collect sugar-rich flower nectar and return. In the hive, the bees use their "honey stomachs" to ingest and regurgitate the nectar a number of times until it is partially digested.] The bees work together as a group with the regurgitation and digestion until the product reaches a desired quality. It...

Honey Bee

...[edit]Micrapis Apis florea and Apis andreniformis are small honey bees of southern and southeastern Asia. They make very small, exposed nests in trees and shrubs. Their stings are often incapable of penetrating human skin, so the hive and swarms can be handled with minimal protection. They occur largely sympatrically though they are very distinct evolutionarily and are probably the result of allopatric speciation, their distribution later converging. Given that A. florea is more widely distributed and A. andreniformis is considerably more aggressive, honey is – if at all – usually harvested from the former only. They are the most ancient extant lineage of honey bees, maybe diverging in the Bartonian (some 40 million years ago or slightly later) from the other lineages, but among themselves do not seem to have diverged a long time before the Neogene.[4] [edit]Megapis There is one recognised species in subgenus Megapis. It usually builds single or a few exposed combs on high tree limbs, on cliffs, and sometimes on buildings. They can be very fierce. Periodically robbed of their honey by human "honey hunters", colonies are easily capable of stinging a human being to death when provoked. Apis dorsata on comb Apis dorsata, the giant honey bee, is native and widespread across most of South and Southeast Asia. Apis dorsata binghami, the Indonesian honey bee, is classified as the Indonesian subspecies of the giant honey bee or a distinct species; in the latter case, A. d.......

Sustainable Farms vs. Industrial Farms

...Sustianable Farms vs. Industrial Farms Jonathan Castro DeVry University Unfortunately animal abuse is a common theme. When one thinks of animal abuse the first thought might be a dog or cat being mistreated by the owners or not being properly fed. We think of zoo animals being mishandled and we think of circus animals and the brutal and extensive training they endure. I say brutal because many of these circus animals are whipped by their handlers. Seldom do many people think of the torture farm animals go through before their body parts are shipped across the nation to grocery stores. Such harsh treatment to farm animals could be prevented if more people were aware of the living conditions industrial farm animals are placed in and the con’s of buying from a local farm. There is a nationwide epidemic of industrial farms torturing farm animals to be placed at your local grocery store. Beef cattle while in transport spend hours without food and water causing stress, which leads to illness. The cattle are skinned alive before having their throat sliced. Dairy cows wear out very quickly due to the constant stress of having to produce large quantities of milk. The chickens also have it very rough in industrial farms. They are cramped in tight spaces with not even enough room to spread their wings. Many of these chickens, due to the unnatural conditions they are placed in, develop respiratory illnesses among other disorders such as weak bones, which easily break...
