Transcript: Through different types of literature, authors have revealed the important relationship between the food industry and the American way of life. The food industry has many far reaching impacts on many parts of people's lives. The food industry has always had an inertwined relationship with immigrants. They provide the cheap laber necessary for cheap food, and they revieve a job in return. All day long the blazing midsummer sun beat down upon that square mile of abominations: upon tens of thousands of cattle crowded into pens whose wooden floors stank and steamed contagion; upon bare, blistering, cinder-strewn railroad tracks and huge blocks of dingy meat factories, whose labyrinthine passages defied a breath of fresh air to penetrate them; and there are not merely rivers of hot blood and carloads of moist flesh, and rendering-vats and soup cauldrons, glue-factories and fertilizer tanks, that smelt like the craters of hell-there are also tons of garbage festering in the sun, and the greasy laundry of the workers hung out to dry and dining rooms littered with food black with flies, and toilet rooms that are open sewers (Sinclair 338). “In 1970, Americans spent about $6 billion on fast food; in 2000, they spent more than $110 billion. Americans now spend more money on fast food than on higher education, personal computers, computer software, or new cars. They spend more on fast food than on movies, books, magazines, newspapers, videos, and recorded music -- combined.” (Schlosser VII) “On any given day in the United States about one-quarter of the adult population visits a fast food restaurant.” (Schlosser 89) The food industry has been involved in politics for many years. Over time it has become more powerful and has gained even more power over the decision that are made. “Ever since the administration of President Richard Nixon, the fast food industry has worked closely with its allies in Congress and the White House to oppose new worker safety, food safety, and minimum wage laws. While publicly espousing support for the free market, the fast food chains have quietly pursued and greatly benefited from a wide variety of government subsidies.” (Schlosser) “The U.S. government agencies have done exactly what big business has asked them to do.” (O’Brien 103) Three of every five Americans are overweight; one of every five is obese. The disease formerly known as adult-onset diabetes has had to be renamed Type II diabetes since it now occurs so frequently in children. A recent study in the Journal of the American Medical Association predicts that a child born in 2000 has a one-in-three chance of developing diabetes. (An African American child's chances are two in five.) Because of diabetes and all the other health problems that accompany obesity, today's children may turn out to be the first generation of Americans whose life expectancy will actually be shorter than that of their parents. (Pollan 102) This was first brought to light by The Jungle by Upton Sinclair. This book first showed the terrible conditions at meat packing plants. Immigrants Politics Health According to an article by Julia Preston in the New York Times on November 5, 2008, the plant was forced to file for bankruptcy after the closure. The company issued a statement that it was forced to file for chapter 11 bankruptcy because of ““difficult circumstances involving a raid.” Fast Food

Transcript: Water & Wildfires Investigating short-term photodegradation of dissolved pyrogenic carbon + Background Background photodegradation Methods fluorescence Where is there a lot of ice on Earth? Is the ice on land or at sea? Results Question Which type of ice, if any, contributes more to sea-level rise? Explain your thinking on the data sheet. Question The data sheet can be found here: Materials Let’s get our materials and build our model in groups of 2-3. Materials Your will need: 2 6x6 plastic storage containers 2 equal amounts of clay, enough to fill a side of the container with 1-2 inches of clay Ice cubes once your model is assembled Ruler and water Directions Directions In both containers, press the clay into the short side making clay “shelves” in both contains. Try to make each container look the same. Label them Container 1 and Container 2. In Container 1, put the ice on top of the clay shelf. In Container 2, put the ice on the plastic, and fill the plastic area with water until the ice cubes float. No ice should be touching the bottom. Pour an equal amount of water into Container 1, making sure the water doesn’t touch the ice sitting on top of the clay shelf. An equal number of ice cubes should be in each container as well. And the water in both containers should be room temperature, so fill several pitchers with water and let them sit overnight before the experiment. Mark the water level on each container. Testing Test Measure the water level and record it on the data sheet. Compare the water level with the marked line in the clay. Allow the ice in both tubs to melt completely. Graph Use the measurements recorded on the data sheet to create a two-line graph representing the water level in each tub. Graph On the X axis, track the depth over 10-minute increments. On the Y axis, mark the depth of the water per each measurement. You will create two lines - one for ice in the water, the other for ice on the clay. Let’s discuss Discuss Did the water in Container 1 or 2 rise more? Does this match your prediction? Why do you think this happened? How does this connect to the rise in global sea levels? How does the melting of Earth’s glaciers influence sea-level rise? How about the melting of icebergs? Video Here is a time lapse video of both sea and land ice melting in Antarctica. What do you notice? Does it confirm your findings? Video Conclusions Now, let’s watch this video that further discusses the rising seas levels. During and after you watch, record on two separate sticky notes or index cards: Three takeaways that you think are important or surprising Two questions you have about rising sea levels Hang onto your takeaways and questions. Let’s investigate! Let's Investigate Now, let’s consult two reading sources. Working in pairs, one person reads a paragraph while the other forms a question about what was read. Ask the question of the reader and talk about the answer. Shift roles every paragraph. Record all questions on paper. Hold onto your questions. Click here for the reading: Click here for the reading: Acknowledgments Let’s share With what you've learned and the questions that you likely still have, team up with another pair and share your takeaways from the videos and readings. Using Prezi or Prezi Video: 1. Report on the top 10 things we need to know about the melting ice and rising seas. 2. List three questions you still have about rising oceans.
