A fierce and funny memoir of kitchen and bedroom from James Beard Award winner Betty Fussell. A survivor of the domestic revolutions that turned American television sets from Leave It to Beaver to The Mary Tyler Moore Show to Julia Child's The French Chef, food historian and journalist Betty Fussell has spotlighted the changes in American culture through food over the last half century in nearly a dozen books. In this witty and candid autobiographical mock epic, Fussell survives a motherless household during the Great Depression, gets married to the well-known writer and war historian Paul Fussell after World War II, goes through a divorce, and finally escapes to New York City in her mid-50s, batterie de cuisine intact. My Kitchen Wars is a revelation of the author's lifelong love affair with food - cooking it, eating it, and sharing it - no matter where or with whom she finds herself. From Princeton to Heidelberg and from London to Provence, Fussell ladles out food, sex, and travel with her wooden spoon, welcoming all who come to the table. 1. Language: English.

This book reviews literature related to bacterial transfer in foods and reports on a research study that deals specifically with bacterial transfer during eating rice or soup. Sharing food from a common bowl or plate is a common practice in some cultures and not uncommon in all societies. Sharing popcorn at a movie is commonplace and an example of this practice. In addition to reviewing published literature related to this subject this book also describes a specific study examining the transfer of bacteria from mouth to different utensils (spoon, chopstick, hand) and from utensils to food (chicken broth, rice). Sharing food may be also result in sharing bacteria and other microorganisms found in a person's mouth. Even though this study did not examine the transfer of disease-causing microbes, common knowledge tells us disease is often spread from person to person from microorganisms found in the mouth. Please read about background related to food cross contamination and how our study tested the transfer of bacteria when food is shared.
The purpose of school education is to enable children to develop their maximum potential. But unfortunately, it is not realized as the present system is more inclined towards spoon feeding, rote memory and passing examinations. Instead of having a child centered education it is moving towards an examination centered education system. Open Book Environment (OBEn) is a model for authentic learning assessment that can motivate learners to construct knowledge. It is a system where children would be given more freedom to think following inter and intra-group dialogue through cognitive questions. It was developed and implemented with features like Teachers Training, Content Presentation through Technology, Collaborative Learning Activities through cognitive questions, Inter-group Sharing and Concept Mapping. Major findings of the study revealed that in both Open Book Testing and Close Book Testing, OBEn was found significantly better than traditional environment in enhancing scores in most of the components of most of the subjects. OBEn helped students to write answers in a better way with divergent ideas.This book can be useful for researchers, teachers, policy makers and planners.
