Chocolate
One of the most seductive and pleasurable foods, enjoyed everywhere in the world, is chocolate. Chocolate is a slightly psychoactive substance but it has some health benefits when consumed in its purest forms and in moderation. Much of what is sold as chocolate today, such as the candy bars in the check-out aisles in grocery stores, barely approximates the richer varieties of the confection like the brands produced in Europe. Most high-quality chocolate contains fewer additives, less milk, and less sugar than the average Hershey bar. Although European manufacturers produce some of the highest quality and best known chocolate in the world, the cocoa plant is native to Central America. The Aztecs enjoyed chocolate mostly as an unsweetened beverage, adding spices like chili peppers and vanilla to enhance the flavor of the naturally bitter drink The term "chocolate" comes from the native Mexican language Nahuatl. Much like coffee, chocolate is….

Chocolate Chip Cookies and ubrics: Helping Students Understand ubrics in Inclusive Settings by Elizabeth W. Hall and Susan J. Salmon explains the importance of using rubrics in the classroom and contains useful information about the use of rubrics for the teachers and students alike.
The article effectively explains the usefulness of rubrics for students in understanding the performance expectations of different assignments, as a self-evaluation tool for assessing their strengths and weaknesses, and describes how teachers can use rubrics to assess the performance of their students. It also contains an interesting exercise for developing an analytical rubric through discussion of the characteristics of "chocolate chip cookies" by the students. The exercise can be used by teachers in classroom settings as it is practical, interesting and simple.

Another theme of the article is that rubrics are particularly useful in helping students with disabilities to evaluate their work. (Para on "Why Use ubrics")….

Symbolism, Advertising and Chocolate
y far, the most overused symbolism to sell chocolate is sex. Chocolate is sexy and women eating chocolate are even sexier. eyond sex, chocolate is synonymous with fun, love, and even patriotism. Let us consider some of the most obvious advertising schemes. What they are really asking the consumer to buy?

An old but very common image is found in the Hershey Company's advertising for its chocolate bar. Post World War II Europe, devastated by the war and overwhelmed by tragedy found comfort in the generosity of the American GI. He carried chocolate bars and gave them to children as he walked through the war-torn streets. They flocked to him, reaching, innocent eyes shining, trusting in his kindness. Were they selling chocolate or the Marshall Plan? A sweet treat or an enticement to trust. Interestingly enough, today's Iraqi children have already discovered the generosity of the American soldier….

Chocolate War -- Do I
PAGES 3 WORDS 1135

Thinking of his father, he defies even the coach's remark that he is too puny to play. Jerry must overcome his own sense of powerlessness, and the sickness that overtakes his body after being buffeted from all sides. Emotionally and physically, although he may appear weak, Jerry has inner resources of steel that he discovers when he is, literally and figuratively, down for the count and up against the ropes like a fighter.
Later in the novel, when Jerry continues to ignore Brother Leon's command to sell chocolate, Jerry is told that he has 'guts' again. He experiences the profound realization that his nonconformist stance has empowered other boys, who hated the domination of the school authorities and the Vigils whose abuses the brothers tolerate because they enforce the administration's will and discipline. "I never thought of saying no. Just like you did," marvels an older boy. (125) "e have….

The use of adio Frequency Identification (FID) on individual chocolate packing is making it possible to know item-level inventory positions within the largest retailers for example including Wal-Mart, an early adopter of this technology (Zhou, 2009). The use of FID is also excellent at managing traceability of specific lots or delivery portions of chocolate (Pacyniak, 2006). With the many quality management concerns within the industry as a result of the Chinese lapses on toys (The lead paint incident with Mattel) and the use of milk in chocolates produced in Japan, quality management is far and way the most critical process area that this industry is grappling with today. The use of technologies to mitigate the risk of bad quality products is the fastest growing area of strategic change in the industry.
The last supporting activity area of procurement has also seen radical change in this industry over the last decade,….

Chocolate: ehind Its ad Rap
In today's society, chocolate is everywhere. It seems that people have developed a love-hate relationship with chocolate. According to the U.S. Department of Commerce, in 1997, the average American ate 11.7 pounds of chocolate. American adults ranked chocolate as the most-craved food and as their favorite flavor by a three-to-one margin. (Mustad, 2001)

Throughout the world, exists a society of chocolate lovers. While Americans consume, on average, nearly twelve pounds of chocolate per year, we are not the biggest fans. The ritish eat 161/2 pounds and the Swiss, the inventors of milk chocolate, consume the most at 22 pounds per person.

However, while people love it, they can't help feeling a pang of guilt when eating it because over the years, chocolate has gotten a "bad rap" as being an unhealthy food. However, recent research is slowly unraveling the hidden truth about chocolate - that it might actually….

ater for Chocolate
Alfonso Arau's Like ater for Chocolate is a tragic love story.

Tita's sisters, Rosaura and Gertrudis, are allowed to marry and do so, Rosaura marrying Pedro who only marries her in order to be close to Tita.

The novel was published in the year 1989 and is based on the life story of a young girl called Tita.

A History of Chocolate

Chocolate is one of the well-known and -- loved food commodities in the world today. The universal appeal of chocolate to everyone's palate makes it a very important commodity, encompassing the need to fulfill one's hunger to include one's "affinity" to it, being a 'comfort' and indulgent type of food for most consumers. In fact, chocolate's appeal and affinity goes back to the earliest civilizations in history, developing over time from becoming a nourishing and delicious drink to being a favorite sweet food item popularly known today.

To trace chocolate's history would mean going back to 250-900 AD and 16th century and in three (3) continents, backtracking from North America (via United States), to Europe (particularly England and Spain), and finally, to South America (particularly Aztec and Mayan societies).

Chocolate is made from cacao, a tree that is found in South America. The Mayans and Aztecs living in….
