Coffee Yesterday and Today

HOW about a cafezinho, freshly made and piping hot? For some, this custom is on the wane, but Brazilians still enjoy the fame of drinking coffee from early morning till late at night. Inflated cost of coffee has not caused a hurried switch to other drinks. In fact, one third of the world’s population still are coffee drinkers. For instance, every year the Belgians drink 149 liters (39 gallons) of coffee, compared with only six liters (1.6 gallons) of tea. The average American drinks 10 cups of coffee to one of tea. In the Western world, only the British break the general rule by annually consuming six liters of coffee to 261 (69 gallons) of tea.

Brazil holds the title as the world’s largest producer and exporter of coffee. In the first four months of 1977, receipts for exports of this “brown gold” reached the staggering total of $1,000,000,000 for 4.5 million bags, an all-time record.

However, coffee is not at all native to Brazil. Would you like to know how the use of this almost universal drink developed, where it originated, and how it got to Brazil?

Origin and Use

The word “coffee” is derived from the Arabic qahwah, meaning strength, and came to us through the Turkish kahveh. Coffee’s early discovery is shrouded in legend. One story tells about Kaldi, a young Arabian goatherd who noticed his goats’ frolicsome antics after nibbling on the berries and leaves of a certain evergreen shrub. Moved by curiosity, he tried the mysterious little berries himself and was amazed at their exhilarating effect. Word spread and “coffee” was born.

Originally, coffee served as a solid food, then as a wine, later as a medicine and, last, as a common drink. As a medicine, it was and still is prescribed for the treatment of migraine headache, heart disease, chronic asthma and dropsy. (Immoderate use, however, may form excessive gastric acid, cause nervousness and speed up the heartbeat. The common “heartburn” is attributed to this.) As a food, the whole berries were crushed, fat was added and the mixture was put into round forms. Even today some African tribes “eat” coffee. Later on, the coffee berries yielded a kind of wine. Others made a drink by pouring boiling water over the dried shells. Still later, the seeds were dried and roasted, mixed with the shells and made into a beverage. Finally, someone ground the beans in a mortar, the forerunner of coffee grinders.

Coffee in Brazil

Although coffee probably originated in Ethiopia, the Arabs were first to cultivate it, in the fifteenth century. But their monopoly was short-lived. In 1610, the first coffee trees were planted in India. The Dutch began to study its cultivation in 1614. During 1720, French naval officer Gabriel Mathieu de Clieu left Paris for the Antilles, carrying with him some coffee seedlings. Only one survived and was taken to Martinique. From Dutch Guiana coffee spread through the Antilles to French Guiana, and from there Brazilian army officer Francisco de Melo Palheta introduced it to Brazil by way of Belém, doing so about 1727. During the early nineteenth century, coffee cultivation started in Campinas and other cities of São Paulo State, and soon reached other states, especially Paraná.

Nowadays, coffee plantations are planned with technical rigidity. Instead of sowing seeds in the field, seedlings are cultivated in shaded nurseries. About 40 days after planting, the coffee grain germinates. Its unmistakable appearance gave it the name “match stick.” After a year of careful treatment in the nursery, the seedlings are replanted outside.

Usually on hillsides, the seedlings are placed in curved rows to make mechanized field work easier and to prevent soil erosion. Four years after planting, the trees are ready for the first harvest. All the while, irrigation boosts growth and output up to 100 percent.

On the other hand, the coffee grower’s headache is his never-ending fight against insects and plant diseases, such as leaf rust and the coffee-bean borer. Rust is a fungus that attacks the leaves and may kill the tree. The coffee-bean borer is a worm that ruins the beans by eating small holes into them. Of course, there are effective fungicides and insecticides, but their constant use increases production cost.

Preparation of the Coffee Beans

On the plantation, coffee may be prepared by either a “wash” or a “dry” process. It is admitted that the wash process yields a fine quality product, since only ripe coffee berries are selected. But because of less work and lower cost, Brazilian coffee usually goes through the “dry” process.

First, all the berries, from green to dry, are shaken off the bush onto large canvas sheets. Then they are winnowed with special sieves. Next, the berries are rinsed in water canals next to the drying patios, in order to separate the ripe from the unripe and to eliminate impurities. Afterward, they are spread out in layers for drying in the open air and sun. They are turned over frequently so as to allow even drying. Eventually, the dry berries are stored in wood-lined deposits until further use.

The drying process, by the way, is of utmost importance to the final quality of the coffee. Some plantations, therefore, use wood-fired driers for more rapid drying, especially in rainy weather.

In other Latin-American countries and elsewhere, the “wash” process is customary, although it is more time-consuming and costly. First, a pulping machine squeezes the beans out of the skin. They fall into large tanks where they stay for about 24 hours, subject to light fermentation of the “honey,” as the surrounding jellylike substance is called. After fermentation, the “honey” is washed off in washing canals. Next, the coffee is laid out to dry in the sun, as in the “dry” process. Some growers make use of drying machines, perforated revolving drums, in which hot air circulates through the coffee. Finally, the coffee beans pass through hulling and polishing machines. And just as the best quality coffees are hand-picked, so the inspection of the berries after washing is done by hand.

Soon the last step is taken–packing the coffee in jute bags for shipment. The 60-kilogram (132-pound) bag, adopted by Brazil, is held world wide as the statistical unit. Bags are stacked in clean, well-aired warehouses. At last, the coffee is ready for sale.

Classification, Commercialization and Cost

The Instituto Brasileiro do Café (IBC: Brazilian Coffee Institute) supplies technical and economic aid to Brazilian coffee growers and controls the home and export trade. For classification, coffee is judged by its taste and aroma. No chemical test for quality has ever been possible. The senses of smell and taste are still the deciding factors. According to its source, preparation and drying, it is classified as strictly soft, soft (pleasant taste and mild), hard (acid or sharp taste) and rio (very hard type preferred in Rio de Janeiro). Other types are less important to the trade.

For the last 20 years coffee has brought about 50 percent of Brazil’s export receipts. Some 15,500,000 persons are employed in its cultivation and trade. But Camilo Calazans de Magalhães, president of the IBC, warned that 1978 will present an unheard-of situation in the history of the coffee trade. For the first time ever, it will depend entirely on the harvest, as any stocks of Brazilian coffee outside Brazil will be exhausted by then. Additionally, the IBC fears that the specter of problems with frost, insects and diseases may unleash new losses in the 1977/78 and 1978/79 harvests.

Very recently, a series of misfortunes befell some of the world’s large coffee producers, causing scarcity of the product, price increases–and a lot of speculation. It all began in July 1975. Brazil was hit by an exceptional cold spell, which destroyed almost half the plantations, or 200 to 300 million coffee trees. Next, in Colombia, a drought, followed by torrential rains, devastated their plantations. In Angola and Uganda, political unrest affected exports. And then an earthquake struck Guatemala.

Human Anatomy Models Use Them For Explicit Understanding Of The Human Anatomy

Human anatomy is the study of structure of human beings. It is concerned purely with the structural aspects and is in no ways related to the functions of various regions of the human body. This is because the human body is made up of several distinct parts. These particulars of the human structure are so vast that they can not be learned along with the details of human functions.

In order to provide a clear and better understanding of these structures, human anatomy is divided in to three major categories: macroscopic anatomy, microscopic anatomy, and basic anatomy. The macroscopic anatomy deals with the study of macroscopic details of human structure and can be learned with the naked eye.Microscopic anatomy deals with the study of microscopic details of distinct structures of human body. Basic anatomy teaches all the basic techniques of human anatomy to enable one to approach and appreciate the basic components and structural arrangements of the human anatomy.

Since it is extremely hard to acquire the knowledge about the human anatomy, it is advisable to use human anatomy models. Human anatomy models occur in all shapes, sizes, styles, colorings and materials. One can easily find a human anatomy model of human eye, brain, foot, head, hands, spine, muscles and ligaments, female genital parts, male genital parts, male reproductive model, perineum model, and uterus model, and of practically every part or structure found in the human body. Human anatomy models come in the form of organ models, reproductive models, torso models, skeletal models, and system models.

Human anatomy model simplifies things to a large extent. Rather than reading elaborate and complex written descriptions about the human anatomy, one can use the human anatomy model to understand the particular human body part. 3D Human anatomy model and 4d human anatomy model makes learning much better. They represent the anatomical feature in great detail, making it easy for the learners to understand and retain things.

Human anatomy models are considered quite useful for teaching in schools and even in medical colleges. When used along with classroom teaching, they yield excellent results for students. To buy human anatomy models, you can visit sciencefirst.com

How Long Can You Really Keep Your Make Up

I have a friend who rarely wears make up, but wanted to doll herself up to attend a wedding. Within minutes of starting to apply her foundation, she was dismayed to discover it smelled terrible and was forced to scrub it off. Her make up, had obviously gone bad.

How long can you really keep your make up before it turns bad and becomes a health hazard? Most make up does not require expiry dates or manufactured dates which makes it difficult to determine how old it is, even when you have just purchased it. However, most make up will not lose its freshness until after that package has been opened.

Water based liquid foundation will last about a year, whereas oil based foundations can remain for about a year and a half. However, if the bottle is opened necked, rather than a pump or squeeze tube, the time is cut in half. Tilting the bottle against your fingers introduces oil, contaminants and bacteria to your foundation, reducing the lifespan.

Pencil eyeliners are good for about two years, as long as you sharpen them regularly. Liquid eyeliners, on the other hand are much more susceptible to bacteria, and should be tossed out about three months after opening. Mascara is another easy target for contamination much like the liquid eyeliner, and should only be kept for three months.

Molded lipsticks have a good long life of up to two years in fact. Glosses and liquid lip colours, however, should not be kept more than three months.

Powdered make up, such as blush, eyeshadow and powder foundation has the longest shelf life of all cosmetics. You can keep these products for up to three years, as long as they are properly stored in a closed case. If the case is left open, however or the lid breaks, your make up is subject to dust, dirt and contaminants and could pose a health risk.

While these guidelines are helpful, a little common sense should prevail. Brushes and sponges should be washed at least once a week in mild, soapy water. Make up wedges should be disposed of after a week or two at most. If any of your make up has a funny odour or looks odd, throw it out. Also, if you have been wearing make up during a contagious illness, such as influenza, you’ve probably contaminated it and you should just start fresh.

The Corrosion Is Preventable By Washing The Dental Instruments

The Corrosion is Preventable by Washing the Dental Instruments

Every day dental offices are taking care of many people and this makes proper infection control practices essential to everyones well-being. Dental offices that stay up-to-date with infection control practices are those that help to prevent the transmission of blood borne viral diseases such as Hepatitis B. One of the main reasons why most people are afraid to see a dentist is the bunch of weird-looking instruments that dentists use to carry out their duties. However, by taking a closer look and knowing the purpose of those tools, the fearful patients can be able to relax and see a dentist for regular dental checkup. One of the most commonly attributed instruments to a dentist is the mouth mirror. It is a little handheld mirror that lets the dentist see through at all the angles inside the mouth of the patient. Mouth mirror provides an indirect vision of the mouth, reflect light and even give a significantly magnified view for the dentist.

After dental equipment and instruments are used, they must be sterilized. Although some dental instruments are for single-use, most are not. There is a two-stage sterilization process that all dental instruments must undergo after each patient. Sterilization kills living organisms such as Hepatitis B and HIV. In addition to the sterilization process, testing the sterilization equipment must be conducted on a routine basis so that dental patients are given the reassurance they need.

One of the common reasons for dental device re-tipping is corrosion on the blade of the instruments. The corrosion is caused by blood pathogens in the saliva. If these pathogens are not washed off thoroughly, it will cause corrosion on the device. This corrosion will destroy your mirrors and need new mirror ends be installed. Scalers and other instruments can corrode on the sharp fringe of the device causing the necessity for re-tipping. This can be annoying when your instruments are new or newly sharpened and already need to be re-tipped. Ought to I mention the cost, it can add up speedy. Improper cleaning and then using the autoclave will only make the corrosion worse.

This corrosion is preventable by washing the instruments after each use. Take the time to wash each device. Use a stiff brush and an antibacterial wash. When all saliva and blood are removed, then autoclave. Cover proper procedures together with your staff to make sure everyone is on the same page. You may have an interest to know that most of my re-tipping work is from improperly cared for instruments and not instruments that have been worn out. Dental Instruments are made of high grade stainless steel and will last a long time with proper care. This easy procedure can save your practice hundreds of dollars per year.
