ABSTRACT
Cockroaches are a constant threat to humans; they spread diseases and are unsanitary. This cockroach problem is commonly addressed through the use of toxic pesticides, but the unfortunate truth is that these pesticides can also be harmful to humans and the environment. The researchers conducted a study to create a toxic-free cockroach killer using Eucalyptus Oil and Chili Peppers as ingredients. The researchers determined the most effective concentration of ingredients by performing a Preliminary Test. From the test they discovered that the concentration with the higher amount of Eucalyptus oil is most effective in killing cockroaches. They proceeded to conduct further experiments to compare the Formulated Cockroach Killer from a known Commercial Pesticide. 5 trials were performed, 10 cockroaches were tested with the Commercial Pesticide and another 10 for the Formulated Cockroach Killer. The Commercial Pesticide killed a higher quantity of cockroaches than the Formulated one. Data were collected and a T-test was performed. The T-test proved that the difference is statistically significant. Although the Commercial Pesticide was more effective, the Formulated Cockroach Killer was still able to kill cockroaches without the use of Toxic ingredients.

Background Of The Study

Cockroaches have adapted to survive in many environments. Once cockroaches invade your home, they can expose you to several kinds of diseases. The use of toxic pesticides to manage pest problems has become a common practice around the world. While these pesticides are able to kill harmful cockroaches, it also has some harmful and bad effects to humans and to the environment. Because of this, the researches wanted to make a safe and effective cockroach killer out of natural ingredients: Chili Peppers and Eucalyptus Oil. The reason why the researchers chose this study is to…...

At this point, the ground beef patties used for hamburgers and the ground beef patties used to chili split off and become separately identifiable. 2. Hamburgers account for 55% of Wendy’s total sale, while chili only composes for 5%. Therefore, chili is a by-product of hamburger. The meat that goes into making chili is a by-product of hamburgers. The over-cooked meat is used as input in the process of making chili instead of being thrown away. It enables Wendy to avoid incurring extra costs. 3. Option 1: The cost of chili does not vary with the seasons. During the month of October through March, 60% of annual chili sale occurred. It happened approximately 10% of the time; it became necessary to cook meat specifically for use in making chili. However, the price of ground beef does not change. Even though the total cost of making chili increases, the unit cost remains unchanged. There is no need to increase the price as well. Option 2: : The cost of chili does vary with the seasons.

...fourth largest nonalcoholic beverage category in the United States after soft drinks, sports drinks, and bottled water. While Dr Pepper Snapple is a major competitor within the flavored carbonated soft drink (CSD) market as well as the non-CSD market, they are only taking part in a small segment of the non-CSD market. The company currently sells ready-to-drink tea, juice, juice drinks, and mixer categories. However, none of these segments are of the top four categories specified above. Therefore, they are missing out on a huge market/profit opportunity. It would be in Dr Pepper Snapple’s best interest to expand their portfolio to energy beverages which are the fourth largest nonalcoholic beverage market. Analysis and Evaluation of Entering the Energy Beverage Market Nature of the Industry, Market, and Buyer Behavior The energy beverage market is expected to grow through 2011. In recent years, growth has slowed due to the maturing of the market as well as new entrants to the market (greater competition) of hybrid energy beverages. The major players in the market are Red Bull North America, Hansen Natural Corporation, Pepsi-Cola, Rockstar Inc., and Coca-Cola. While each player/competitor has their own strengths and weaknesses, one thing is sure about this market: brand loyalty will be a huge obstacle within this market for Dr Pepper Snapple. Another thing to consider about the energy beverage industry is that (besides Redbull) marketing efforts are modest.......

The Cockroach

...insects. When we read the title of the poem “The cockroach” we immediately have negative opinions. However, Kevin Halligan sees through the revolt and instead, relates to the cockroach throughout the poem. Halligan crafted the poem carefully to convey a message to the readers that we never stop wanting more. He also managed to relate a nasty insect we often despise to a human being that embraces much more respect. So how he uses a cockroach to convey his message? Right at the beginning of the poem in the first sentence, Halligan quotes that the cockroach is “giant” which forces us to think why such a useless insect is said to be “giant.” This word hints to us that in this context the cockroach is more than what we’d usually imagine and the cockroach is elevated to a higher status. This idea is sustained when the cockroach is given an pronoun “he.” A cockroach is usually called an “it” whereas Halligan presents him at a higher level. The verbs “jog” and “climb” also help to mirror actions of a human fortifying that the cockroach was supposed to represent a human. At the end of the poem it is proven to us that the cockroach represents him shown by the quote “I thought I recognized myself.” This leads us to a new idea as to why Halligan uses a cockroach to characterize a human. The cockroach is liable to repetition and routine shown in the quote “circling the rusty table leg and back.” The quote signifies that the cockroach has got no intentions and is going nowhere......

Killers

...Killers What does it take for someone to end a human life? There are many studies and specialists that center themselves on this question. Is it a lack of self-control? Do murderers have a distorted understanding of morals, ethics, and basic “do’s and don’ts” of traditional society? One of the most common motives for murder is anger and vengeance. In the short stories “A Rose for Emily” and “Killers,” the main characters exhibit similar motives for the murders they commit. Both people were pushed over the edge by the loss of someone close to them. They were pushed to the point of taking a human life. In William Faulkner’s “A Rose for Emily,” Emily, a scorned and lonely woman murdered her lover because the thought of being alone was too much to handle. Emily also kept the body of her dead lover locked in a room for forty years. Not only did she kill her lover Homer, she stored his dead body in bed so she could lay with him every night. Why would a woman kill the man she loves? In the story, her lover was about to leave her and he was the only person in Emily’s life. Her controlling father was already dead, she had no family, and the town constantly gossiped about her. When her lover, Homer Barron, was going to leave her she felt betrayed. If he really loved her, why would he leave? Who was he leaving her for? He wanted to be free from her, and the best way to get back at someone who wants their freedom is to trap them. However, Emily took it one step to far.......

Pepper Seed Dna Extraction

...Pepper Seed DNA Extraction Biochem lab: CHE 452L marisol gomez Pepper Seed DNA Extraction Biochem lab: CHE 452L marisol gomez 2015 2015 INTRODUCTION The jalapeno is a member of the capsicum family, along with many other peppers. The usual methods for characterization of different pepper species are based on their morphological and physiological traits, however this many not always be enough. For peppers, their traits are influenced by things like their genotype or their specific environment. Genomic markers can allow for a more direct comparison of closely related individuals (Ansari and Khan, 2012). In our case we focus on DNA extraction. The two basic parts of a DNA extraction procedure include the breaking of the cell walls to expose the DNA and the use of enzymes to remove contaminants. The DNA is analyzed for purity by taking the absorbance. The pure DNA is then visualized by gel electrophoresis. The DNA extraction of plant seeds is difficult because of their cell wall. The method used to break the cell wall includes grinding the seeds with liquid nitrogen. The addition of DNAzol is used to isolate genomic DNA (Chomczynski et al. 1997). Restriction enzymes are necessary to fragment patterns of the DNA and in turn making it easier to analyze the DNA through gel electrophoresis. BACKGROUND The purpose of our experiment is to extract the DNA from pepper seeds to be able to compare and contrast the similarities in their DNA. The extraction of DNA from a plant...

Chili Prices

...Macroeconomics Short Essay 1 Chili Prices hot on short supply and rising demand PK KRISHNAKUMAR & JAYASHREE BHOSALE, ET Bureau Jul 16, 2015, 04.00AM IST Tags: * (Meanwhile, keeping with…) KOCHI/PUNE: Chili prices are getting hotter due to supply squeeze and rising demand. The prices of the largest exported spice from India are hovering around Rs 95-Rs 100 a kg, 20 per cent more than the prices a year ago, and may race to a new high depending on the demand, trade insiders say Chili crop was down by 15 per cent-20 per cent due to erratic rains last year. This along with high export demand in the end of 2014-15 seems to have dried up the stock, particularly in Andhra Pradesh — the largest chili producing region. "At present the cold storages in Guntur are showing 30 per cent-40 per cent deficiency," said Ravipati Peraiah, MD at Vijayakrishna Spice Farm, a dry chili manufacturer and supplier based in Bellary. The annual chili production in the country is about 13-14 lakh tonne. Rising prices have led to hoarding, which in turn affects supply and boost prices further. "About 75 per cent of the available stock is with the traders and only the rest is with the farmers," said Venkat Rosaiah, president of Guntur Chilli Commission Agents Association. "Heavy purchase by China and Bangladesh last year has created pressure on the stock and has lifted the price. But if Andhra gets good rainfall in the coming weeks, the prices will cool." The prices are expected to go......

Wendy's Chili

...UVA-C-2206 WENDY’S CHILI: A COSTING CONUNDRUM What happens to a successful company when it loses its founder, senior chairman, advertising icon, and beloved leader? That was the question being asked about Wendy’s International, Inc., in January 2002 after Dave Thomas, 69, passed away from cancer. In the words of Jack Schuessler, the company’s chairman and CEO, “Dave was our patriarch. He was the heart and soul of our company.” Without him, the company would never be the same. However, Dave Thomas left behind a legacy about values, ethics, product quality, customer satisfaction, employee satisfaction, community service and shareholder value that provided a solid foundation on which to continue the success the company had experienced for more than thirty years. Still, the patriarch was gone, and the future was uncertain. How It Began Wendy’s International, Inc., was founded by R. David Thomas in Columbus, Ohio, in November 1969. Prior to that time, Thomas had purchased an unprofitable Kentucky Fried Chicken franchise in the Columbus area, turned it around, and subsequently sold it back to Kentucky Fried Chicken at a substantial profit. He then became a cofounder of Arthur Treacher’s Fish & Chips. So, at the time he founded Wendy’s, Thomas was no stranger to the quick-service restaurant industry. Although he had been involved with businesses specializing in chicken and fish, Thomas’s favorite food was hamburgers, and he frequently complained that there was no...
