This report is to provide a short research about the corporate social responsibility (CSR) reporting practices in China The potential issue for CSR reporting in China In order to deal with the discovered deficits to make a better CSR practice and reporting in China, there might be a few recommendations need to consider it is necessary to enhance the general CSR awareness for the Chinese people by education and propaganda Continue: Stakeholders’ power to the business entity is still too weak to motivate the entity by legitimacy power, which can be reflected in both the willingness and capability limitation of the mass public in China (Tian et al 2011). most Chinese individuals are having a short experience of CSR education and modern business ethic education by the historical reason there is lacking of proper democratic channel or market competition to let the mass individuals to speak out and develop their influences in China Conclusion 2.4 The potential issue for CSR reporting in China Continue: in2005 6 list companies had issued standalone reports in 2010 increase to 700 CSR practice explained by legitimacy theory SOE= state owned enterprise SOE contributed by state and government SOE have legitimacy obligation to government SOE face to social and political pressure 5.

Transcript: A 1964 study conducted by the Vermont College of Medicine had volunteers in a men's prison gain 15-25% of their body weight. To do so, the men had to eat 8,000-10,000 calories a day; at the study's conclusion, the men all lost the weight rapidly. The Obesity Paradox THANK YOU! Questions/Comments The words "fat," "thin," and "straight sized." Body Mass Index, commonly referred to as BMI, is a measure of a person's height:weight ratio. While commonly misused as an indicator of health, the ranges are arbitrary, and not indicative of a person's health. However, it is at the moment the only tool used to differentiate body types and weight classes. Notable Quotes Modern fat phobia emerged in America during the 1800s in response to industrialization and globalization, but its broad cultural appeal rested largely on racism and white supremacy. "Scientists" categorized people into social hierarchies based on their distinguishing physical characteristics. They placed white European body types on top, including thinness, and other ethnicities on the bottom, including relative fatness. As a result, white people needed to maintain thinness in order to keep their social superiority. Today, fat people make less money, are systemically discriminated against, and are harassed constantly Furthermore, fatness isn't seen as a feminist issue; because of the pervading myths that weight is a choice, it's socially acceptable to harass and bully fat people. Fun fact: as of February 14th, 2016, every player on the Denver Broncos would have a BMI greater than 30- which falls into the "obese" range. Intersectionality Life in a Fat Body On Twitter: @kivabay, @yrfatfriend, @Ok2BeFat, @Artists_Ali, @fatgirlfreedom, @rgay, @upstairsinmysox [mine] To read: Fat Shame by Amy Erdman Farrell; Tipping the Scales of Justice: Fighting Weight Based Discrimination by Sondra Solovay; Rethinking Thin by Gina Kolata, Hunger (and other books) by Roxanne Gay Presented to you by Prince “I'm definitely much happier when I'm thin” “My friends have let me know when they are concerned that I am putting on weight (and also when they are frightened if I get too skinny” "Every time I see a doctor [for depression] they just tell me to lose weight. Every fucking time. I went unmedicated for 21 years." "When I was 12, I was dubbed "morbidly obese" because I had an undetected health problem (that [my doctor], mind you, did not detect until later) and blamed all of my problems on that and how I didn't care about my health." "I hate when people say things because they're "worried about you," no, you're not, you just are grossed out. Don't tell me I need to be thin for someone to love me because now I believe it and this is very hard to come back from." "Most of the ridicule I receive about my weight comes from my mother. ... my mother has often guilted me by saying how happy/proud she’d be if I just lost weight. ... My body image keeps me from making connections with people, and I’m afraid if I don’t find the confidence in me, I’m probably just gonna end up alone." Before we begin Race, Gender, and Class Sources & Further Reading The Survey Mythbusters People in the "overweight" and "obese" BMI ranges live longer than people in the "normal" and "underweight" ranges, even when accounting for all other factors A 2007 study lead by Dr Heinz Buettner, head of interventional cardiology at Herz-Zentrum, Krozingen, Germany, followed 1,676 patients over three years. They had all suffered a cardiac event, but as BMI increased, patient mortality decreased. "9.9% of normal BMI patients and 7.7% of overweight patients had died at the end of the three years, but only 3.6% of obese patients had died and no very obese patients had died." Does this mean people should go out and try to gain some weight ASAP? Well, chances are, you would be unable to. Set point theory is a weight theory that states the body has a range of around 15lbs that it tries to stay in. I conducted a small, informal survey asking friends, family, and strangers on the internet questions about the life in their bodies Approx. 75% of responders considered themselves to be fat 100% have tried dieting to lose weight; 80% either never lost the weight, gained it back, or gained more weight than they lost When asked about self confidence on a scale of 1-10, the median response was a 4 Most reported being harassed about their weight or their food choices, especially by family members "Don't you realize being fat is unhealthy??" Weight is only unhealthy in the most extreme cases (e.g., being so underweight your organs are shutting down; fatness that causes immobility) A sedentary lifestyle is unhealthy: not exercising enough, not getting the right nutrients, eating a lot of processed food However, this is NOT what determines your weight! Weight is influenced by a multitude of factors, including: genetics, medication, underlying health issues, cyclical starving, stress, and even the decade you live in. According to a 2016

Transcript: Fats and oils should form an essential part of the diet, as they represent an important source of energy and contribute to the body functioning well. Fat should account for 30% or less of the calories consumed daily, with saturated fats accounting for no more than 10% of the total fat intake • Fat also plays an essential role in carrying the four fat-soluble vitamins: A, D, E, and K. Types of fats Unsaturated : Monounsaturated and polyunsaturated Saturated: Saturates and trans Monounsaturated fats (MUFAs) are good fats. Liquid at room temperature, they turn solid when they are chilled. Common sources of MUFAs are olive oil, avocadoes and nuts. Monounsaturated fats are a healthy alternative to the trans fats and refined polyunsaturated fats you find in most processed foods. Benefics: Decreased risk for breast cancer Reduced cholesterol levels Lower risk for heart disease and stroke Weight loss Less severe pain and stiffness for sufferers of rheumatoid arthritis. Reduced belly fat Polyunsaturated fat This is a type of fat found mostly in plant-based foods and oils. Improve blood cholesterol levels help decrease the risk of type 2 diabetes Saturated fat Saturated fat comes from animal sources, such as beef, butter and dairy fat. That is solid at room temperature and whose fatty acid chains cannot incorporate additional hydrogen atoms. Damages produced by saturated fat Increases our risk having a heart attack or stoke. These fats may also contribute to obesity, diabetes and cancer. Trans fat Trans fats (or trans fatty acids) are created in an industrial process that adds hydrogen to liquid vegetable oils to make them more solid. Another name for trans fats is “partially hydrogenated oils."Trans fat is found in processed foods such as cookies, cakes and crackers. Pizza and Spaghetti, both associated with the Neapolitan traditions of cookery, are especially popular abroad, but the varying geographical conditions of the twenty regions of Italy, together with the strength of local traditions, afford a wide range of dishes. Thank you for watching Italy fat food Monounsaturated fats
Transcript: Reared on fast food, children learn to prefer french fries over vegetables. At McDonald's they attract younger patrons with "Happy Meals", complete with a toy. The World Health Organization recommends limiting the marketing of unhealthy food that focuses on selling to young children.
