Sugar Baby

...Essay Sugar Baby Imagine a little baby sitting in his back seat chair away home from his grandmother. His grandmother had gave him a chocolate finger for the trip home but just when they had left the “evil” father took it away from him and the trip was transformed from happy to noisy frustration. Is it OK to hold an innocent baby hostage in the name of generation gap and gender struggle? ”Sugar Baby” is a short Scottish story written by Fiona Gibson in 2000. The story exposes some themes of current interest about the issue of raising a child in a modern society. The story takes place in the Old Town in Edinburgh and deals with a young family consisting of a father, a mother, a baby son and grandmother who babysits from time to time. The only name we don’t hear in this short story is the baby’s name. It could be the authors way to show us who the text really is about. The baby is only an accessory in the story that the author has used to point out some other important themes. Most of all it talks to today's parents and their way of parenting their children. The father (Joe) is the main character. He is a very caring father who only wishes to do the best for his son. But when it comes to the child’s nutrition he becomes to overprotective. He does not allow the baby to eat sugar rich food and he had agreed with Helen, the mother, not to dose the child up with e-additives. Because of Joe’s young age he does not have the experience of childcare instead of examine......

Alan Sugar

...Name: Alan Sugar Born: 24/03/1947 (Age: 66) From: Hackney, London Famous for: He's the man who loves to say "You're Fired!" on his hit television show, The Apprentice. Relationship status: Sir Al is married to his wife Ann. Twelve years younger than his three older siblings, Alan Sugar was the child of low-income, working-class Jews and raised in Upper Clapton Road - England. By the age of 12, he was rising at 6am every day to boil beetroots for a local ‘greengrocer’. Four years later, Sir Alan's earnings, after school and at weekends, were far better than his father, Nathan, who worked in a tailoring sweatshop. Leaving school at the age of 16, Sugar proceeded to obtain a post in which he worked briefly for the civil service as a statistician in the Ministry of Education. He also started selling car aerials and electrical goods out of a van he had bought from his £50 savings. In 1968, aged 21, he set up his own business, selling electrical products from intercoms to retractable car antennas and called it Amstrad, referring to (Alan Michael Sugar Trading). The company began as a general importer/exporter and wholesaler, but soon specialized in consumer electronics. By 1970, the first manufacturing venture was underway. He achieved lower production prices by using injection moulding plastics for hi-fi turntable covers, severely undercutting competitors who used vacuum-forming processes.

Sugar

...Sugar has long been an essential crop of the Caribbean countries and the news of reform has left the islands scrambling to maintain a viable economy. In order to understand how the islands economies became so dependent on sugar, it must be made clear how sugar became so important, the extent of the Caribbean's dependency on preferential pricing and how the preferences have been reformed. The sugar industry has been a part of the Caribbean since shortly after being discovered and colonized by people of the western world. Its importance can be seen through significant historical changes such as slavery, indentured servitude and finally through independence. The sugar industry creates a significant amount of jobs for the uneducated residents of the Caribbean. According to McDonald (2003) it was estimated in two thousand and three that the industry employed approximately one hundred and twenty-five thousand workers in both direct and indirect employment that otherwise may be unemployed. It served as a tourist attraction and was a major ingredient in the production of Molasses and Rum, both of which generated significant export revenues. Most importantly, sugar exported to the member countries of the European Union generated significant revenues. The European Union (EU) sugar program as it was original implemented in nineteen sixty-eight, served to facilitate competitiveness by compensating intuitional price cuts for sugar with direct income payments. The program consisted of a......

Sugar Revolution

...The Plantation Sugar – The New Age The sole cash crop that crushed the exportation of cotton and tobacco and reigned in the Caribbean for the next two hundred (200) years was sugar. Dutch colonists in Brazil were the 1st to grow sugar extensively. They then taught the English, in Barbados, ways of cultivation and manufacture in 1644 and soon “sugar was king”. By 1650, Barbados was the primary sugar-producer and was known as “the brightest jewel in the crown of King Charles II”. Other French colonies soon followed Barbados. The Sugar Revolution Definition Sugar Revolution – drastic change from producing a variety of crops to sugar cane ONLY. Implications of the Sugar Revolution/ Changes brought about by the Sugar Revolution: a) New Methods of producing sugar – The English and French began inventing new and better ways of processing sugar cane. b) The Labour Force – Planting and processing sugar cane required extensive labour force. The planters wanted work to be done using the cheapest labour force, which in the end, would mean greater profits for them when the sugar was sold. Thus, an increasing number of African slaves were used. c) Increase in the price of Land: Great sugar plantations developed by buying the small plots of land that were used to cultivate tobacco. As sugar became more profitable, the demand for land increased, which caused the price of land to increase. d) Change in governance – As the English French and Dutch......

Sugar

.... At 5:30 am the slaves would be sent to the fields with their breakfast. A register would be called and if a slave was absent he would be beaten. Their breakfast at 8:00, consisted of Boiled Yam, Eddoes and Okra which were all seasoned with Salt and Pepper. Work on the sugar Plantation now started, this is where the majority of the Slaves worked. It continued till 12:00 and was a very tiring time. The sugar cane can range from a height of 4 feet to 12 feet or more. Knives were used to cut the stems of the cane and then were at the end of the day, carried to a sugar mill. Here a different set of workers would squeeze the sugar cane to get the precious juice that is used to create sugar. This was a very important job so the smallest mistakes would be punished severely. From 12:00 to 2:00 pm the slaves were allowed to leave their work and have dinner. These often consisted of meaty dishes, as they contain lots of protein which is needed to use muscle. .From 2:00 to 6:00 the slaves had to continue with their work. This was often the time when problems would occur. Many weak slaves would faint in the evenings from extreme heat, and overworking. If this was to happen they would be whipped. At 6:00 the slaves were allowed to return to their huts. After eating bread and butter, or some other light dinner at their hut, they would either be sent to bed, or in the summer forced to work in the boiling house. 3. When the African Slaves were enslaved, they sang slave songs.......

Slide: Ok, let’s start with the frame conditions of this topic. Sugar was once a luxury product and the demand for sweets is in our genes. Today, you can get sugar everywhere. [Click] The sugar market is one of the world’s strongest protected and supported market for agricultural products. [Click] The USA is the fifth-largest sugar producer in the world [Click] and the U.S. sugar policy used quotas and restricted imports to balance supply and demand. [Click] The purpose of these restrictions [Click] is the increase of the sugar price in the U.S. market.

Sugar Love

...Clarksdale, Mississippi. That was seven years ago, when administrators first recognized the magnitude of the problem. Clarksdale, a storied delta town that gave us the golden age of the Delta blues, its cotton fields and flatlands rolling to the river, its Victorian mansions still beautiful, is at the center of a colossal American health crisis. High rates of obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease: the legacy, some experts say, of sugar, a crop that brought the ancestors of most Clarksdale residents to this hemisphere in chains. “We knew we had to do something,” Kirkpatrick principal SuzAnne Walton told me. Walton, Clarksdale born and bred, was leading me through the school, discussing ways the faculty is trying to help students—baked instead of fried, fruit instead of candy—most of whom have two meals a day in the lunchroom. She was wearing scrubs—standard Monday dress for teachers, to reinforce the school’s commitment to health and wellness. The student body is 91 percent African American, 7 percent white, “and three Latinos”—the remaining 2 percent. “These kids eat what they’re given, and too often it’s the sweetest, cheapest foods: cakes, creams, candy. It had to change. It was about the students,” she explained. Take, for example, Nicholas Scurlock, who had recently begun his first year at Oakhurst Middle School. Nick, just tall enough to ride the coaster at the bigger amusement parks, had been 135 pounds going into fifth grade. “He was terrified of......

No Sugar

...characters. No sugar is a play that makes an impact. Jack Davis has chosen not to construct realistic characters, but instead characters that fit into and even sometimes challenge the stereotypes placed on Aboriginal people. Although some characters are exaggerated stereotypes there are also many that aren’t. Every character is constructed in a different way, through dialogue and action. No sugar focuses on the hardships faced by an - albeit stereotypical of the 1930’s - Aboriginal family during the continued colonisation of Australia. Gran is the matriarchal figure of the family; she is the one that tries to ensure the continuation of the Nyoongah culture. She is characterised as strong and often stubborn. Her stubborn attitude throughout the play represents, in some ways, Aboriginal stereotypes. The way that Davis has constructed her creates a bond between her and the audience; the audience becomes attached to her. Through Davis’ choice, Gran’s spoken language is colloquial, accentuating her culture and creating a stereotypical Aboriginal character. The colloquial way in which Gran speaks reflects the stereotype of the 1930’s that aboriginals were unable to communicate in the same way as the ‘white’ people, for example when Gran says “chergeant” and “Politjmans” and “Youse”. Gran represents Aboriginal stereotypes through her character traits, she is proud, determined and stubborn. At first glance Jimmy is constructed as a stereotypical Aboriginal. He has a......

Sugar

...How Sugar is Made - the History It is thought that cane sugar was first used by man in Polynesia from where it spread to India. In 510 BC the Emperor Darius of what was then Persia invaded India where he found "the reed which gives honey without bees". The secret of cane sugar, as with many other of man's discoveries, was kept a closely guarded secret whilst the finished product was exported for a rich profit. It was the major expansion of the Arab peoples in the seventh century AD that led to a breaking of the secret. When they invaded Persia in 642 AD they found sugar cane being grown and learnt how sugar was made. As their expansion continued they established sugar production in other lands that they conquered including North Africa and Spain. Sugar was only discovered by western Europeans as a result of the Crusades in the 11th Century AD. Crusaders returning home talked of this "new spice" and how pleasant it was. The first sugar was recorded in England in 1099. The subsequent centuries saw a major expansion of western European trade with the East, including the importation of sugar. It is recorded, for instance, that sugar was available in London at "two shillings a pound" in 1319 AD. This equates to about US$100 per kilo at today's prices so it was very much a luxury. In the 15th century AD, European sugar was refined in Venice, confirmation that even then when quantities were small, it was difficult to transport sugar as a food grade product....
