REVIEW OF RELATED LITERATURE
The important usage of all parts of MoringaOleifera has been utilized by the different parts of the world as medicinal, antimicrobial, antibacterial, antiviral, and even clarifying drinking water. This rapidly-growing tree was utilized by ancient Romans, Greeks, and Egyptians. It is now widely cultivated and has become naturalized in many locations in the tropics and has an antibiotic ability (Fahey, 2005). It has been introduced and become naturalized in other parts of India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Southeast Asia, West Asia, the Arabian Peninsula, East and West Africa, Southern Florida, throughout the West Indies, and from Mexico to Peru, Paraguay, and Brazil (Mahmood, 2010).
In a research study conducted by Suleymanet. al. (2009) found that MoringaOleifera is the best natural coagulant discovered yet, that can replace aluminum sulfate which is use widely all around the world. The study was conducted to find the active constituents which are responsible about the coagulation mechanism and improving the coagulation property. The percentage chemical compositions of MoringaOleifera Seed Powder consist of protein, carbohydrates, and lipids with more sodium than potassium. Phytochemical tests and spectral studies led to the elucidation of steroidal glycoside-strophantidin as a bioactive agent in the seed.
Comparative studies with alum showed that the seed paste was effective in the clarification and sedimentation of inorganic and organic matter in raw water .It reduced the total microbial and coliform count by 55% and 65% respectively. Pterygospermin, and antifungal substance has been extracted from the flower, 4-Hydroxymellein, vanillin, B-Sitosenone, and B-Sitosterol have been characterized from the stem while benzyl isothiocyanak and moringyne have been elucidated from the seeds. Bacteria in raw water were reduced…...

...The Chicken Incident Everyone has an extremely embarrassing experience, that seems horrifically terrible at the time, but upon reflection becomes a completely hilarious occurrence in their life. This episode can be anything from falling down the grand staircase in high school, to splattering a pan of chicken in the walk-in cooler at work. This is mine. I had been working for the Culver’s Franchise Association for virtually three years, in which my primary job was drive-thru and other “front house” positions. I occasionally worked in the kitchen, but not enough to know the entire swing of things that well. This particular night was a pretty ordinary night at the restaurant. I was situated on drive-thru, and was also scheduled to close that same position. As closing time rolled around I found myself bombarded with a plethora of tasks, and to accomplish them I needed to be able t! o access the sink. I walked over to the sink to find an enormous bucket filled to the brim with water and chicken. This bucket needed to be carried to the cooler for the night, but whoever left it there had forgotten about it and it remained in my sink. Well, instead of calling for my co-worker to carry the chicken to the cooler, I decided to take it upon myself and help them out. Looking back in hindsight, I now ask myself, “What was I thinking?” I hoisted the pail of chicken and water out of the sink and headed towards the cooler. As I approached the cooler I rested the bucket on a nearby......

Chickens of the Sea

...CHICKENS OF THE SEA Not long ago, a friend once told me that he heard Jessica Simpson say on television, that a brand of canned tuna called “Chicken of the Sea” literally means, chickens that live in the sea. As we all know chickens cannot naturally live in the sea due to their physical deficiencies in water. In other words, the only way chickens could live under the sea is if the company invested billions into undersea chicken farms. For example, They could build giant undersea domes just like Sandy Peaches, in the hit kids television show “Spongebob Squarepants”. Furthermore the labeling itself states quite clearly that the food product contained in the tin is in fact tuna. Now, if the label didn’t say anything about tuna on the front It would be very easy to confuse the product with chicken, but that is not the case for this specific brand. In addition, tuna in general is very different from chicken in so many aspects, that it is really hard to confuse tuna with chicken. The textures, colors, and taste are so different that anyone who has ever eaten both tuna and chicken, could easily differentiate between the two products. Jessica Simpson’s statement is a falsehood that can be proven wrong with simple observation. First, chickens cannot live in the sea due to the fact that they have evolved on land for millions of years. Everything about their bodies have been finely tuned for living life on the surface of the world. Resulting in different organs compared to marine...

Chicken Feathers in Concrete

...Strengthening Concrete with Keratin Fibers from Chicken Feathers Austin Allen Kennesaw Mountain High School Table of Contents Research Problem 3 Chapter II: Literature Review 4 Keratin Fibers 4 Concrete 4 Compressive Strength 5 Tensile Strength 5 Chicken Feathers 5 Structure 6 Glossary 6 Chapter III: Methodology 6 Analysis Plan 7 Validity 7 Assumptions 7 Scope and Limitations 8 Chapter IV: Analysis 8 Chapter V: Conclusions and Recommendations 9 References 10 Strengthening Concrete with Keratin Fibers from Chicken Feathers Chicken feathers are primarily used for making feather meal for farm animals; however, chicken feathers are also used in the production of plastics, fishing flies, biodegradable pots and plastics, bio-diesel fuel, hurricane-resistant roofing, and the stuffing in pillows (Fan, 2008). Applying these uses of chicken feathers to concrete could increase the strength and life of the structure built; for example, an office building could potentially last years longer if the concrete used to construct it (contained more strength) to hold up the structure. Furthermore, the wear and tear of the strength of the building would be approximately the same; however, the capacity to support the structure would be greater due to an increased initial strength (Fan, 2008). Worrell, Price, Martin, Hendricks, and Meida (2001) reported that approximately five percent of the global carbon dioxide emissions come from the pouring of......

...Nine Ten, a Big Fat Hen. Are Arsenicals in Chicken Worth the Risk? According to an article at Science Daily, “The annual per capita human consumption of poultry products is approximately 100 lbs. This is greater demand than that of any other animal- or vegetable-derived protein source in the U.S. To satisfy this demand, each year, the U.S. poultry industry raises nearly 9 billion broiler chickens” ("Banned Antibiotics”). In order to accomplish raising this many chickens the farmers have found it necessary to use antibiotic compounds containing arsenic. Arsenic is a medication that farmers put in the chicken feed to help chickens grow heavier at a much faster rate, help prevent diseases, and give support to tissue and vascular development. This will make the muscle of the chickens more appealing to the consumers (Greiff). Thus, they are produced in a much shorter time span. Critics of the use of growth promoters such as arsenicals point out disturbing side effects. For example: the chickens become extremely overweight. This reaches the point where their legs cannot even hold up their bodies. This causes them to fall over and eventually die. Some of the chickens that make it past the farms and into the grocery store can carry bacteria that can cause foodborne illnesses and can even cause cancer. Defenders of the use of the arsenic-containing antibiotics argue that with the use of these antibiotics, money can be saved not only by the company, but also for the consumers...

...while Coke had dominated fountain sales. Coca-Cola had a 65% share of the fountain market in 2000 while Pepsi had 21%. Competition for fountain sales was intense as fountains were one of the core distribution channels for their beverage products. Both companies practice strong partner relationship management (PRM) to forge long-term partnerships with their channel members. Coke and Pepsi were investing in the development of fountain equipment, such as service dispensers, and provided their fountain customers with cups, point-of-sale material, advertising, and in-store promotions to increase brand presence. After Pepsi entered the fast food restaurant business with the acquisitions of Pizza Hut (1978), Taco Bell (1986) and Kentucky Fried Chicken (1986), Coca Cola persuaded other chains such as Wendy’s and Burger King to switch to Coke while retaining exclusivity deals with McDonald’s. The competition to dominate the fountain distribution channel have been long lasting with Coke, just scoring a big coup by winning the soft-drink business at Subway, a fast-food chain now bigger than McDonald's, that had previously served only Pepsi. This is a scenario where Coca Cola have managed to convince Subway that they can succeed better by working together as a part of a cohesive value delivery system. Channel members typically seek intensive distribution- a strategy in which they stock their products in as many outlets as possible. This policy of intensive distribution ensures......

...ROASTED CHICKEN NUTRITIONAL VALUE: ------------------------------------------------- GREAT SOURCE OF PROTEIN Chicken meat and chicken parts are very popular in the United States as an excellent source of protein. Chicken meat also tends to be a lot leaner than red meat, so it is a healthier source of protein. Protein is very important for building and repairing muscle tissues, as well as strengthening hair, skin, and preventing bone loss in the elderly. It also keeps your stomach feeling full for longer periods of time, so it can be an effective weight loss tool as it provides lean protein. ------------------------------------------------- VITAMINS AND MINERALS IN CHICKEN Other than being a protein powerhouse, other vitamins and minerals chicken contains include: * Tryptophan: This essential amino acid is important because it increases serotonin level in the brain and helps us sleep better. It also has antidepressant properties and can make us happier. * Niacin: This vitamin is vital to the skin, digestive tract and nervous system, and research has shown it may help prevent Alzheimer's disease, help convert food to energy, and promote skin repair. * Selenium: Known as an effective antioxidant, selenium can help in the prevention of cancer by repairing free radicals in the body.

Feathers

...Feathers and Cigarettes The youth in the post-modern society, offered much friendship crisscross social groups, background and cultures. The many crosses offers challenges and testing, which create both good and bad friendships. But will you describe the friendship between the main character and her friend, in this British short story Feathers and Cigarettes, from the collection “Feathers and Cigarettes & Other Stories”, published in Fish 2013, as a good or bad friendship? Feathers and cigarettes are characterized by a typical short story. The short story starts off in medias res, which means that we are thrown into the story, without any introduction. It is told chronologic and in the end, when the girlfriend tells the secret to the main character, the point of no return occurs. The short story is told by the main character herself - therefore a first person narrator. The point of view influences the story because we see it from her point of view and because of her thoughts and feelings. Unlike the characters that occur in the text, we get no name of the main character. But we know it is a girl because of her girlfriend and her ex. In the beginning we get a outer and a very detailed description, because we get to know which designer label she wears and what kind of makeup she uses: “My denim skirt from Miss Sixty (…) did my eyes with Rimmel Planet Sparkle and my lips with Coffee Shimmer Exaggerate Hydra Colour” (ll. 9-11).

Waste Chicken Feather

...Barbs, Chicken Feather, Cement Composites, Coupling Agent, Dimensional stability, Hygroscopicity, Keratin, Silane, Superplasticizer *Corresponding author: mnacda@yahoo.com 161 Menandro N. Acda Waste Chicken Feather as Reinforcement in Cement-Bonded Composites Department of Forest Products and Paper Science, College of Forestry and Natural Resources University of the Philippines Los Baños, College, Laguna 4031 Philippines This study investigated the use of waste chicken feather (barbs and rachis) as reinforcement in cement-bonded composites. A series of composite boards consisting of various proportions of waste feather, cement, sand, and chemical admixtures were prepared. Mix workability decreased significantly as the proportion by weight of feathers or ground feathers increased from 5% to 20%. Boards containing 5% to 10% fiber and/or ground feather by weight showed comparable strength and dimensional stability to commercial wood fiber-cement composites of similar thickness and density. Stiffness, flexural strength, and dimensional stability of the feather-cement boards decreased as the proportion of feathers was increased above 10%. Higher proportions of feather, however, showed significant reduction in modulus of elasticity (MOE) and modulus of rupture (MOR), and increased water absorption and thickness swelling after 24 hours of soaking in water.

Feathers

..."Like his twisted feathers, his many scars, the reliable old owl chose the gnarled, weather-beaten, but solid branch often—it being a companion to the wise alone with the night and the last branch to creak in the heaviest wind. He often came to survey the fields and the clouds before his hunt, to listen to the steady sound of the stream passing through reeds under the bridge, while combing his feathers for the unwanteds—whatever they might be." Here is a descriptive essay about a first visit to a favorite diner written by a student at Roane State Community College:"When entering the door at Lou’s, two things are immediately noticeable: the place is rarely empty and seems to consist of a maze of rooms. The first room, through the door, is the main part of the restaurant. There is another, rarely used, dining room off to the right. It was added during the oil well boom of the seventies. Through the main dining room is yet another room; it guards the door leading into the kitchen. This room contains the most coveted table in the place. The highest tribute Lou can bestow on anyone is to allow them access to seats at this table. This table is the family table; it is reserved for Lou’s, and her daughter Karen’s, immediate family and treasured friends."

...INTRODUCTION Excel Poultry & Meat Sdn Bhd (EPM) was established in 1998 to carry on chicken farming and supplying of whole chickens to various outlets in Malaysia. It is a subsidiary of PCK Holding since 2005. The set up was a small and medium sized enterprise (SME) located in Kluang, Johor. EPM was a member of Federation of Livestock Farmers’ Association of Malaysia (FLFAM). Since there is no dietary prohibitions and religious restriction against chicken consumption, it was the most popular and cheapest source of meat protein among Malaysians. In addition, the surge of quick-service-restaurants (QSR) had facilitated significant growth in chicken consumption. Also, the traditional Malaysian delicacies were equally popular with patrons. Hence, EPM business was doing well. EPM starts the business with an initial capital of RM3.6 million and with 20 employees.
