Quiche - Food tech

Today me and my buddy Lovey baked Quiche, The first step we had to do was to fry the mince with the onions and vegetables in a pan with oil. The second step we had to do was to whisk 5 eggs and 1/2 cup of milk into a bowl, the third step was to cut out the pastry into 12 pieces and put it into the muffin tray, after all of that was done we had to pour in all the ingredients into the muffin tray, and place it into the oven. Here is the final outcome of what our quiche looks like.

Parts of a Amoeba

Image result
Locomotion - Amoeba
Amoebas move changing their body from liquid to a solid in the form of pseudopods. When they want to move there pseudopods become liquid form. Then they move it in the direction of travel. After their pseudopod gets were they want it they change it into the solid form, and their body into a liquid let it catch up.

Feeding and Diet - Amoeba
Amoebas feed by moving over to their prey and then wrapping their pseudopods around it.
An amoebas diet mostly consists of:
Algae, bacteria, plant cells, protozoa and metazoa.

Habitat - Amoeba
Amoebas normally live in stagnant ponds, shallow pools, and moist dirt. They are mostly found at the bottom of the water on or around the mud. I also read about a great method of catching them on a website called Microscopy.

You will need a small jar to catch them in and a microscope to view them. Now to get started put the jar in your pond or shallow pool until it’s just above the mud at the bottom of the water, now slowly tip the jar to let out the air. When you do that it should suck some of the mud up. The amoeba will be in the mud. You may have to do this multiple times before you catch an amoeba.

Reproduction - Amoeba
Amoebas reproduce by a process called binary fission. Which basically means it splits itself into two identical copies.

Fun facts - Amoeba
1. The liquid state of an amoeba is called plasmasol, while the solid state is called plasmagel.
2. When an amoeba is startled it immediately transforms into a star shape.
3. Certain species of amoeba can produce a shell called a test that they can stay in until conditions get better.
4. Sometimes amoebas will come together to form a big blob called slime mold.

5. A species of amoeba called pelomyxa palustris can grow up to 5 million.

Sole trader, partnership and private limited company are the three main benefits. A sole trader is the simplest form of business structure and is relatively easy and inexpensive to set up, A business partner is a commercial entity with which another commercial entity has some form of alliance, Private limited company is a type of privately held small business entity.

There are many businesses around our community, and businesses that provides good service and a business that provides good. For the past few weeks we have been learning about what is a business and today we learnt about why are businesses useful.

Our answer for the second one was  that businesses provides a good or provides great services to customers. Businesses are also the means by which many people get their jobs and a career for themselves.

Business is extremely important to a country's economy because businesses provide both goods and services and jobs. It is important to everyone in the community because that business is their career and it provides them money, food, and clothes to put on their kids.
