Homework #2 “Cant live without coffee”

This article fascinates me in so many ways and starting off with the way the coffee is made during the civil war and how coffee was made to fuel and give energy to the soldiers during the war and also the popular demand of coffee during the time. Finding out that coffee was like a weapon for soldiers during the civil war was amazing keeping the solider up and alert from any enemies. From back then and now coffee in society  runs the world with different companies and different types of coffee being made to energize us though out our day. Though out my day of class or work every morning I would need not a cup of hot coffee but a cup of ice coffee almost everyday. It sounds like an addiction but with out it my day would be tiring and would not be focused on anything. Same with the union troops feeling like if they didn’t have a cup of coffee they would be weak and destroyed by there enemies for not being focused on the battlefield. I would say the one thing I cant live without during my busy day would most definitely be ice coffee from dunkin donut with out it I wouldn’t be doing this homework right about now.

24 hours at aliena feels like 24 hours at aliena!!!!!!!

After watching this video I was so amazed at so many things one of them would be the pace of these workers were moving it was outstanding to me wishing me and my other classmates in Professor Garcelon class can clean up after class just like them. All of the workers were on there feet cooking, cleaning, serving for 8 hours or more a day is  impressive working as a team to get things done. Another thing that also caught my attention was the decorating that the chefs were doing to the food being patience to make it perfect and also fast as well so the guest can have there food already. The offices upstairs of the restaurant who handles the shipments for food delivery makes a good job taking phone calls and making notes on what the seller has to offer. If I was a health inspector checking up on this restaurant I would most definitely give this restaurant five stars and also an “A” for how hard these employee work to make aliena as perfect as It can be.

Homework 1 “Food is Life!!!!!”

My opinion on food and pictures being taken of food it is phenomenal how it is now a big tread in our lifestyle now and days. There are so many different picture being taken on food each and everyday. “A picture is worth a thousands words” I mean this can be really cheesy to here at times but it is absolutely true knowing how many signs with out even reading a description that you can already see from someone picture whether it is food or not. I personally take photo of food when it is a traditional Mediterranean cuisine that my mom would make occasionally for guest and it would look out standing on the way the food would be set up on the table. Just knowing as well how social media have exposed people art of food on photograph made them very popular for there work like Javier Garcia who takes photos on what he eats weekly having fans of his work from all the way to Ecuador is amazing and I can only imagine what I can also do as well with the technologies we have in social media and the most delicious foods that I eat every day!
