Atmosphere-Very contemporary, fancy but still ‘hip’
Total Price-$22.50
The sushi at Takanami was very inconsistent. Their tempura roll combined incredibly sweet sauce with warm, fresh fish to create a roll so delicious that one bite sends shivers down your spine, but the tuna was fairly average and their specialty, the spicy lobster roll, was disappointing. While to sauce was intruiging, the actual roll had very little flavor.
Spicy Lobster-2 (spiciness-2 glasses)

Sushi Popo
Atmosphere-casual, but still well decorated
Total Price-$23.50
While Sushi Popo’s tuna roll was very average, it’s tempura roll struggled. The roll took risks, adding in cream cheese and a decidedly un-sweet sauce. Neither of these worked well. The cream cheese’s mushy texture clashed with the crispiness of the tempura, and the sauce was lacking in flavor. Their specialty, the Autumn roll (crabmeat, avacado, and cream cheese rolled in crispy tempura and fried veggies), suffered from the same problem. It’s sauce was very similar to the tempura’s, and none of the other ingrediants were strong enough to make up for it.
Autumn-2.5 (1/2 glass)

Jade Sisters
Atmosphere-very casual
Total Price-$18.18
Jade Sisters features some surprisingly solid sushi. While average rice and fish prevent the sushi from being anything special, there was not a whole lot to complain about. The tempura roll featured a nice little sweet sauce, and the tuna roll featured some surprisingly tasty fish. The specialty roll, the caterpillar (shrimp tempura, cream cheese and cucumber with a special house sauce) featured a very tasty sauce, although it suffered from having too much cream cheese. Cream cheese is an ingrediant that should never have more than a supporting role in a sushi roll, but this cream cheese was a little overwhelming.…...

Restaurant Review

...Review of China Buffet Restaurant I am a food lover, and I enjoyed eating in a Chinese restaurant. I tried different restaurants in our place, but what interests me most is the China Buffet Restaurant. China Buffet is located at Madison Avenue at the heart of Mankato, one of the biggest cities in Minnesota. The restaurant has a seating capacity of approximately 100 people. They have several food stations. Although the name China Buffet speaks for itself, their food stations consist of American, Italian, and Japanese food. The owner purposely includes a variety of food because of competition. I enjoyed eating at China Buffet because of its affordability, delicious food, and the beautiful setting. The price of their buffet is $10 per person, and it includes beverages. There are a variety of salads in their salad station: fruit, vegetable, and seafood. Their main meal is composed of chicken, pork, beef, and fish. For dessert, they serve ice cream, cookies, and different kinds of cakes. For their beverages, they serve soda, milk, juice, and chocolate milk, but tea is my favorite. The food is excellent so it’s well worth the price. China Buffet’s food is excellent and healthy. They have food stations for meat lovers and vegetarians. Their newly-opened sushi and hibachi bar is the restaurant’s crowning glory. Sushi and California maki is my starter with matching wasabi sauce. I tried their hibachi too, but it fills me up right away. The seafood station is...

When John von Neumann turned his interest to computers, he was one of the leading mathematicians of his time. In the 1940s, he helped design two of the first stored-program digital electronic computers. He authored reports explaining the functional organization of modern computers for the first time, thereby influencing their construction worldwide (von Neumann, 1945; Burks et al., 1946). In the first of these reports, von Neumann described the computer as analogous to a brain, with an input “organ” (analogous to sensory neurons), a memory, an arithmetical and a logical “organ” (analogous to associative neurons), and an output “organ” (analogous to motor neurons). His experience with computers convinced him that brains and computers, both having to do with the processing of information, should be studied by a new discipline–automata theory. In fact, according to von Neumann, automata theory would cover not only......

...Chapter 1 Auditing and Internal Control Review Questions 1. What is the purpose of an IT audit? Response: The purpose of an IT audit is to provide an independent assessment of some technology- or systems-related object, such as proper IT implementation, or controls over computer resources. Because most modern accounting information systems use IT, IT plays a significant role in a financial (external audit), where the purpose is to determine the fairness and accuracy of the financial statements. 2. Discuss the concept of independence within the context of a financial audit. How is independence different for internal auditors? Response: The auditor cannot be an advocate of the client, but must independently attest to whether GAAP and other appropriate guidelines have been adequately met. Independence for internal auditors is different because they are employed by the organization, and cannot be as independent as the external auditor. Thus internal auditors must use professional judgment and independent minds in performing IA activities. 3. What are the conceptual phases of an audit? How do they differ between general auditing and IT auditing? Response: The three conceptual phases of auditing are: i. Audit planning, ii. Tests of internal controls, and iii. ......

...Review Of the Movie “The Help” “The Help”, it is a movie based on the book which contain testimonials on the experiences of African-American maids. I remembered I read the book before I watched the movie. The thing I know about the book, it was written and published by a white woman and it was told by the black women who were maids in the 1960s. It gave me some assumptions to go with. Before I start, everything that I will bring up are tightly about the movie and the book. It is like a little summary however the reviews I read are really good concerning the movie and the book. The movie was produced in a small town Jackson, Mississippi. Racial tension was so high at that time. The Black women worked not only as maids in that town, but they practically raised white people’s children too. So far, they were seen as “HELP” and were treated inappropriately and poorly. Skeeter, is a young woman who were living in that town. She gets the idea to write a story about these women who were maids, because of her good experience with the black woman who raised her and took really good care of her when her mother was not around. I really liked and enjoyed this movie. It got my attention and made me cry couple of times while watching some parts. What was so interesting and good about this movie? At the beginning of the movie, the acting was excellent. Viola Davis who played a maid named (Aibileen), she is an amazing woman who was one of the central characters in the......

...Review on the hunger games It's a true shot to the heart! “The Hunger Games,” the highly anticipated movie based on the best-selling teen novel, is as tough-spirited as fans would hope for — and exciting and thought-provoking in a way few adventure dramas ever are. It’s also a far more serious movie than the marketing, and mainstream mania, have led us to believe. It’s better and scarier than its source book, and aims an angry eye at our bloodthirsty, watch-anything-and-cheer culture.And there’s also pro-rebellion, anti-1% sentiment coursing through its blood. While the dark allegory within Suzanne Collins’ 2008 publishing phenomenon remains intact, it’s anchored by a remarkable performance from  Lawrence, as everyone now knows, plays Katniss Everdeen, a 16-year-old in a future North America reconfigured after war and eco-disaster into “Panem.” A dozen impoverished “districts,” controlled by the amoral Capitol, make up the ex-U.S. Katniss’ family lives in District 12, formerly Appalachia. She and her friend Gale (Liam Hemsworth) hunt for squirrels to survive — her preferred weapon is a bow and arrow — while hoping not to hear their names called in the Hunger Games, in which a young girl and boy from each district are picked by lottery for an annual, televised death match — killing each other for the amusement of the wealthy and powerful.The Games are a way of punishing constituents for a nearly century-old uprising, though haunting propaganda films paint them as......

...Managing Business Operations The chosen company to study in this report is YO! Sushi. I. INTRODUCTION 1. The Company YO! Sushi is a chain of restaurants that was founded in 1997 by Simon Woodrofde in London, United-Kingdom. Its goal was to make sushi more approachable to the English market.

...Understanding your company review process Your company determines the review process to use to meet its business goals. A review process can be anything from an annual performance appraisal to an all-encompassing performance management policy that includes development, compensation, and succession plans. No matter what process your company uses, all review processes have a lifecycle. A lifecycle is the sum of all the phases that make up your company’s review process from start to finish. Typically, one phase flows into another until the process is complete. For example, a general lifecycle might include four main phases that flow as follows: ◾1 : The initial Planning Phase at the beginning of the fiscal year that allows a manager and employee to determine what content to include in the performance appraisal form. ◾2 : Followed in a few months by a Progress Check Phase where the manager and the employee meet to touch-base on their progress to date. ◾3 : Followed in another few months by the Assessment Phase, in which the manager and employee use the appraisal form to evaluate the employee based on the exhibited accomplishments of the year. ◾ 4 : Followed by the final Analysis Phase, in which the manager determines the reward and compensation based on data gathered during the Assessment Phase. How SuccessFactors fits into your company review process SuccessFactors is designed to work with your company's review process, with the review process......

...or approach they used could have been improved upon. You may also find such comments in sections entitled ’Future research’. You can quickly identify empirical studies by scanning the contents of papers to see if they have sections on ‘research methods’, ‘research design’ or ‘findings’. Empirical papers frequently also have a section dealing with ‘the literature’ or called ‘literature survey’ in which the author(s) discuss existing published treatments of the subject they are writing about. In the process, many authors take the opportunity to highlight the deficiencies of the existing treatments. Some publications consist of reviews or comparisons of other papers. These typically include the words ‘Meta-survey’, ‘Meta-review’ or ‘Meta-analysis’ in their title or abstract, and frequently include critical assessments of the papers they review or survey. Finally, some papers helpfully include the word ‘critique’ in their title. Illustrative Examples of critical comments The extracts shown below were taken from a mixture of student assignments and published papers. This is not an exhaustive list, merely a sample of the many different ways one can go about critically assessing published work. You should also note that the examples were not selected for the quality of their written English. I am not recommending or endorsing any particular writing style or format by quoting these examples.

Sushi - Harm or Good to Health?

...Sushi - good or harm to health? Introduction Sushi has long stopped to be something exotic for us. On the contrary, it is original and tasty dish long won our daily ration. However, in recent years around the sushi tense debate of supporters and opponents of sushi about the benefits and dangers of this dish. So what I want to discuss about the benefits and harm of sushi and to persuade listeners that sushi more useful than harmful. (Transition: “Let's see, sushi - a benefit or harm? “) Main Body I. Refutation of the major myths about the dangers of sushi The first myth about sushi: that sushi contain a lot of mercury. So, they are dangerous for health. This argument does not hold of criticism. Sushi is needed not only fish, but also a lot of other ingredients: algae Nuri, different vegetables and rice. So the proportion of fish in sushi is very low, and even if eat a few rolls every day, it can’t be more than 150 grams of fish a week. And according to medical standards, the maximum allowable amount of consumption of oily fish - about 600 grams per week. Myth Two: The sushi contains a lot of salt, which is dangerous for the kidneys. Indeed, soy sauce, which served to sushi, very salty, and it is better not to abuse it. Two tablespoons of soy sauce contains about 1 gram of salt. This amount is more than enough, because daily standart of salt -6 grams for an adult. So, eating sushi, lean on ginger and use sauce economically. Myth Three: people get fat from......

...Order Code RS22814 February 21, 2008 FDA Fast Track and Priority Review Programs Susan Thaul Specialist in Drug Safety and Effectiveness Domestic Social Policy Division Summary By statutory requirements and by regulation, guidance, and practice, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) works with several overlapping yet distinct programs to get to market quickly new drug and biological products that address unmet needs. FDA most frequently uses three mechanisms for that purpose: Accelerated Approval, Fast Track, and Priority Review. The first two affect the development process before a sponsor submits a marketing application. Accelerated Approval allows surrogate endpoints in trials to demonstrate effectiveness and is relevant in fewer situations than the others. The Fast Track program encourages a sponsor to consult with FDA while developing a product. Unlike the others, Priority Review involves no discussions of study design or procedure; it relates only to an application’s place in the review queue. Analysis of total approval time for approved applications under the Fast Track and Priority Review programs shows that for seven of the past nine years, Fast Track products have shorter median approval times than do all those applications assigned to Priority Review. It takes an average of 15 years from the moment a manufacturer first approaches the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) with an idea for a new drug to its final approval for marketing.1......

...FILM REVIEW 'THE YOUNG VICTORIA' «THE YOUNG VICTORIA» is a historical drama about the first few years of the Queen Victoria’s long reign in England during the 1800s, including her relationship with the object of her affection, her husband Prince Albert of Germany. The film is exciting. If you like this sort of film- you will not be sorry you saw it. Director Jean-Marc Vallee won several awards for his last film C.R.A.Z.Y., but The Young Victoria is probably enough to get him into the mainstream. His work with cinematographer Hagen Bogdanski (who worked on The Lives Of Others) is very good. There are a number of excellent performances: Jim Broadbent as the jovial and jaded King William; Jeanette Hain as the Baroness Lehzen, Victoria's former governess and confidante; Paul Bettany as Victoria's first Prime Minister, Lord Melbourne, and Michael Maloney as his successor Sir John Peel are also very good. Despite her youth, Victoria (Emily Blunt) has become increasingly aware of the critical position she holds. As the only legitimate offspring to be produced from three aging brothers entitled to the British throne, she stands next in line to wear the crown. Nor is she blind to the ambitious intentions of the people around her especially her mother, The Duchess of Kent (Miranda Richardson), and her advisor Sir John Conroy (Mark Strong). With the present monarch’s health failing, the Duchess and her right-hand-man are putting pressure on the......
