Educate Consumers

Freshness indicator should increase food safety Bonn, may 2009 – with each food scandal, she puts a little upwards, on the agenda of politicians of the consumer: the question of the perishable food freshness guarantee. To educate consumers about this issue better, is the objective of the Forum Pro freshness, as well as the University of Bonn scientists, experts of the Balinger technology manufacturer Bizerba and of the Swiss chemical company Ciba, as well as of the German housewives Federation (DHB) belong to the. Nike wanted to know more. The participating scientists from the Centre for evaluation and methods (ZEM) and the Institute of agricultural engineering of the University of Bonn have conducted a study in collaboration with the other participants in the Forum that explores the possibilities of a fresh counter with so-called time-temperature indicator (TTI) called OnVu. The participants often stated that is difficult to judge the freshness of many food and a freshness indicator can be helpful\”, as Professor Rainer Stamminger of Bonn University. Each nearly two Third fear food could be too warm, especially in the summer when transporting and trading poorly stocked certain foods could be corrupted when buying already. A harmless to start process, whose speed however largely depends on the behaviour of the consumer.

\”Because the number of germs increases explosively, as soon as the cold chain at any point is interrupted for example during the trip home in a hot car or in the fridge to warm,\” reported the Bonner scholar Dr. Judith Kreyenschmidt. The majority of consumers would make product selection in favour of food with a freshness indicator according to this. If there were such an roughly 85 percent of the participants believed that they could better judge the freshness of food. Advantages of such TTI’s called it the greater transparency and better control of trade, easier comprehensibility for the customer and information about the history of the cold chain as well as the respective storage conditions.

Brain And Memory

Yesterday, in the class of paradigms that forms part of the program of brain empowerment that I teach, arose two extremely interesting topics: the first arose after a schoolgirl exposed about brain functions and specifically the types of memory that we have, which are briefly as follows: to) memory snapshot: one that we use in a matter of seconds. For example, when they give you a phone number and remember it for a few seconds to be able to mark it and the minute you have forgotten it. Another example would be when they ask you to read a list of fifteen objects and ask that you remember most of them. On average you will perhaps remember 7, 8 or 9. An hour later, you just remember 2 or 3.

(b) short-term memory: is the one that we use to remember something for a period of minutes or at most a few days. For example, helps us to remember where leave parked the vehicle, did the weekend just past or that heat the night before a test. (c) medium-term memory: is the one that we use to remind us by facts from one week to one year. An example would be that information that we need to pass a course or to carry out a project at work and that passed that year, already do not remember it. (d) long-term memory: is what we use to recall by a year and even life. Now, the question that arose in the classroom was: what makes the brain decides that something is immediate, short, medium or long term? There is much to say about memory no doubt. In fact, within the program of brain empowerment that I teach is a unit dedicated to the principles of the Super memory and simple, practical exercises and that they enhance memory, that contrary to what many believe, isn’t that some have bad memory, but we have not trained him properly.
