One of my favorite homemade treats is, fresh chip cookies. From the sweet smell of the kitchen to the gooey, hot cookies coming out of the oven, making chocolate chip cookies makes me a hero in my home. As long as there is a gallon of milk in the fridge to go along with this yummy treat, my family is ready for chocolate chip cookies anytime. Oftentimes, my mother and I make the cookies together to enjoy some conversation and time while making a delicious treat. Chocolate chip cookies not only bring my mother and me together, but they provide us with a delightful treat, and they allow us to share them with our entire family once we have our finished product.

Usually my mom and I prepare in advance. We make sure we have enough ingredients between the two of us, and we make a list of missing ingredients to pick up from the grocery store. My mom usually comes to my house to bake. On her way, she stops at the store and brings the needed ingredients as well as the ingredients she had at her own house.

For chocolate chip cookies, one of the many different types of cookies that we bake, we use the popular Toll House cookie recipe found on the back of the bag of chocolate chips. We have found through the years that this recipe is our family’s favorite. Therefore, the most important ingredient is the Toll House chocolate chips! This particular recipe is based on the twelve ounce package that we often use. Depending on our final goal, we may use larger bags of chips, following the directions on the back, or we may double or triple the amount on the back of the twelve ounce bag. For this particular process, the twelve ounce bag recipe is our guideline.

When I know my mom is on the way, I preheat the oven to 350 degrees. The instructions say 375 degrees, but after lots of experience, we know that my oven works better with…...

How to Treat Ibs Using Hypnosis

...Assignment - Module 8 Word Count 2221 This essay will be describing the condition irritable bowel syndrome. I will also be discussing the possible uses of hypnosis in helping to treat the aspects of this condition. Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a condition of the gut and it has been noted that it is a condition which affects about 1 in 10 people at some time. Statistically it has been recorded that it is more prevalent among people between the ages of 25 – 45 and females are more affected than males. However this condition can cause problems at any age to both sexes and ethnicity may be a factor to be considered. For example data for Pakistan shows that males between 16-30 have a higher rate of IBS. There are many symptoms that many IBS suffers endure such as: Feeling and being sick by vomiting Diarrhoea Constipation Pain in the abdomen Bloating/wind Feeling that you haven’t fully emptied all faeces from the rectum Stress and anxiety Depression to list a few. This condition causes great problems with the sufferer as it can destroy and disrupt their day to day life. Before a person with IBS and a hypnotherapist work together the IBS patient should have already seen a GP and consequently been diagnosed. An ethical hypnotherapist would need to know that all other, more serious conditions such as bowel cancer, have been ruled out and that the problem is IBS for a fact. The doctor should......

Is Law Forcing Doctors to Treat Mentally Ill Prisoners

...convicted of murdering the grocery clerk in 1979. Furthermore, the Arkansas Supreme Court affirmed his conviction. It wasn’t until 1987 when Mr. Singleton began showing signs of mental deterioration. “To what extent can a government take invasive, involuntary action using medical personnel who are sworn to heal, save and treat when the result of their medical application and experience is not healing, treating and saving but instead has the result of causing executions?” (Liptak, p.1). As a future nurse, I ethically am sworn to heal. Understandably, in this situation it can contradict what I stand for. However, I know that treating Mr. Singleton will be my ultimate goal regardless of his death. For example, in the case of a terminal cancer patient, I would not deny medical treatment just because the person will inevitably die. So, in the case of Mr. Singleton, I would not see him as a “prisoner” but as a “patient” and still implement his treatment for mental illness. As well, if it is the best interest of the patient to receive treatment, then I will follow through with treatment. I realize in the end Mr. Singleton will be executed but, again, I have to treat him in the same manner as I would any other patient I come in contact with. As a medical professional it would be unethical for me to be prejudiced against Mr. Singleton by not giving treatment just because he is a prisoner. In conclusion, we must understand the Mr. Singleton’s guilt is not what is in question. He......

Uses of Hypnotherapy to Treat a Medical Condition

...Uses of Hypnotherapy to treat a medical condition Introduction The purpose of this essay is to describe and explain the uses of hypnotherapy in the treatment of a medical condition. For this essay I have chosen to look at a chronic life limiting illness called Motor Neurone Disease. This is a disease that can affect many different aspects of a person’s life and is very aggressive in its symptoms. I have met quite a few people with this condition whilst working in the Neurophysiology department at the QMC, where all the nerve and muscles studies and EMG’s are performed. It not only changes the person’s life but also the lives of the people around them. I found this research both upsetting and informative. MND is a progressive degenerative disease which sadly has no known cure and sufferers will usually die within 5 years of the onset of the disease, there is no way to tell that you have this disease but there are many warning signs such as difficulty with speech, walking and dropping things due to not being able to grip correctly. MND is an unusual disease that damages nerve cells that the brain would usually use to send messages to the muscles and spinal cord where the upper and lower motor neurones are negatively affected. This then alters the muscle strength and can result in muscle loss. Theses neurons also if not working correctly will affect the messages sent to the brain giving the commands the body needs to enable walking, swallowing and any other muscle use. This...

...HOW TO TREAT ‘TREATS’ Angela Foster has been appointed the new branch manager for the ‘Treats’ sandwich shop in Burbank Mall. This happens to be the third outlet of this shop owned by a Cuban Family. Their main offering is handmade tasty sandwiches which are prepared in home cooked style with Cuban ingredients and recipes. The family sources the ingredients from Cuba and bakes the breads fresh, every morning to upkeep its taste. The other branches of the store are doing well. The first one was opened by the founder, Maria Porto in their native neighborhood after they migrated from Cuba 30 years ago. As other migrants flocked in from Cuba into the same neighborhood as well, Maria first started to make sandwiches for them on a regular basis, since that was the cheapest food they could buy. Gradually, the taste became so popular, that Maria’s sandwiches were an instant hit, and it flourished into a very successful business, in the Cuban dominated neighborhood of San Bernardino. The second branch was opened by Maria’s sister in Camarillo, a very sparsely populated part of California. Again, Cuban migrants form a significant part of the customer base and the business is doing well. Maria’s son Miguel came up with the idea of opening the third branch in the neighboring Burbank Mall in order to attract mainstream customers from the local population. His dream is to make the Cuban cuisine popular amongst Americans, like how Mexican cuisine is already popular. This is his first......

Price Beat Guarantee, Trick or Treat?

...Price beat guarantee, trick or treat? Last year I wanted to travel to Cairns, and I found a new way to save money by using a price beat guarantee offered by Jetstar through word of mouth. Through further research I gradually found, no other airlines are using this method of marketing, where as in other industries there are a lot of companies using this method to attract customers attention. For example, Dan Muphy, Officeworks,, Harvey Norman, and so on. What is price beat guarantee? I think most of you guys have heard of it. Guaranteed beat guarantee refers to, I believe, businesses who say they will allow consumer to purchase the same product at a same or lower price which a consumer can proof that a competitor is offering the same product at a lower price. With so much competition and evolving marketing strategy for buying goods and services, therefore price has become a more common differentiator than it was in the past. It is an anti-competitive tactic that avoid competitors attempt to steal market share by undercutting prices. And firms use this strategy as a method of building customer loyalty. So here I post one of my experience about price beat guarantee. Last year I walk into the good guys where their advertising and marketing make you believe that you will always get the cheapest price from their shops, but what I didn’t know was only possible with a with a lot of strict conditions and terms. So it is here that I found one sales assistant who I...

Medication to Treat Adhd

...Medication To Treat ADHD Simi Linton in Reassigning Meaning defines Disability as, “ A physical or psychological condition considered to have predominantly medical significance” (Linton, 282). In Harlan Lane’s article, he writes about people who are deaf and how they now have the option to undergo surgery to have cochlear implants. These implants are electronic devices that stimulate the auditory nerve directly, and provide a sense of sound to one who is deaf or hard of hearing. However, Lane expresses a feeling of disapproval in regards to the cochlear implant. Lane feels as though if a child were to receive the implants, they would lose fundamental value in the deaf community“(Lane, 264). Also, succeeding in the hearing community would be a struggle, resulting in personal/social identity insecurities. However, if someone has an opportunity to improve such an essential sense as hearing, they should most certainly take advantage of it. Treatment for the learning disability ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) is an exceptional example because the medication only lasts for a short period of time, and also makes the person taking it, feel and appear different. This treatment can lead to nearly different personalities when someone does or does not take the medication, which often time can lead to personal/social identity issues and other insecurities. ADHD testing involves assessing one’s strengths and weakness’ in school functioning. Many children......

How I Treat Eatl

...From by guest on March 10, 2015. For personal use only. How I treat How I treat enteropathy-associated T-cell lymphoma Antonio Di Sabatino,1 Federico Biagi,1 Paolo G. Gobbi,1 and Gino R. Corazza1 1First Department of Medicine, Centro per lo Studio e la Cura della Malattia Celiaca, Fondazione Istituto di Ricovero e Cura a Carattere Scientifico Policlinico S. Matteo, University of Pavia, Pavia, Italy Enteropathy-associated T-cell lymphoma (EATL) is a complication of celiac disease (CD). This tumor derives from the neoplastic transformation of aberrant intraepithelial T lymphocytes emerging in celiac patients unresponsive to a gluten-free diet. Poor adherence to a gluten-free diet, HLA-DQ2 homozygosity, and late diagnosis of CD are recognized as risk factors for malignant evolution of CD. Recurrence of diarrhea, unexplained weight loss, abdominal pain, fever, and night sweating should alert physicians to this complication. The suspicion of EATL should lead to an extensive diagnostic workup in which magnetic resonance enteroclysis, positron emission tomography scan, and histologic identification of lesions represent the best options. Treatment includes high-dose chemotherapy preceded by surgical resection and followed by autologous stem cell transplantation, although biologic therapies seem to be promising. Strict adherence to a gluten-free diet remains the only way to prevent EATL. (Blood. 2012;119(11): 2458-2468) Introduction Celiac disease (CD) is a......

My Addiction, My Recovery

...Composition 1 December 10, 2015 My Addiction, My Recovery "It can never happen to me" I thought, as I watched my father drink himself into oblivion and smoke his drugs, from sunrise, to sunset, and sometimes, for days, even weeks with no break in between. When he left, I remember feeling relieved, even at the early age of two. He was in and out of my life, just as often as he was in and out of rehabiliation centers for the chemically addicted. I didn't mind, I didn't have to watch him slowly kill himself, and hurt my mother, brother and I in the process. I never wanted to be like either one of my parents, both addicts with two different choices of poisons, I told myself every single day that would never be me. Me risk losing it all, my family, my friends, my health, everything in the world that means anything to me at all? "Never" is what I told myself, every time I thought of my father, or looked at my mother. That wasn't what I wanted for my life, I wanted a good life, full of happiness and ambition, surrounded by those I love, and I would never settle for less. My parent's and their lifestyle were things I looked to for motivation to stay focused, and on the right track. Boy, did that ever backfire! My brother and I are three years apart in age, he is older, but not by much when it comes to mentality. One night, after a long night of work, I was 15 and already had dropped out of school, I walked into my brothers room and found him......

Invitation to Treat

...RAYMOND KIPCHIRCHIR RONO BUSINESS LAW INVITATION TO TREAT Definition: An invitation to treat is a tool to get negotiations going and show the terms which one party may be willing to accept. It is a mere declaration of willingness to enter into negotiations, not like an offer as it has to be accepted so as to form a binding contract (a pre-offer communication). Situations that can be categorised as invitation to treat: * Display of items - A mere display and qutation of a price does not constitute an offer, it is an invitation to treat. Offer and acceptance takes palce at the cashier when a customer offers to buy and a cashier accepts the offer. * Advertisements – advertisements are invitations to treat, so the person advertising is not compelled to sell to every customer. * Auctions - The holding of a public auction will also be regarded as an invitation to treat. Auctions are, however, a special case generally. The rule is that the bidder is making an offer to buy and the auctioneer accepts this in whatever manner is customary, usually the fall of the hammer. A bidder may withdraw his or her bid at any time before the fall of the hammer. The placing of goods in the auction is an invitation to treat. * Tenders – An advertisement for a tender is an invitation to treat. A tender for specific goods or services is an offer and when the person requesting the tender accepts, it is a biding acceptance. If the tender for a request is not specific......
