Dominic’s is a local Arizona restaurant that has the entire state in love with their southwestern Italian style food and pizza bistro combination. With Dominic’s unique blend of Italian food anyone can easily find an item on the menu to enjoy. The 1950’s décor on the walls and ceiling along with the Frank Sinatra music playing will take the customer directly to the 50’s decade. Since my first visit to Dominic’s in October 2007 I have been a returning customer that has never been disappointed. Coming from an Italian family I never thought I could find homemade Italian food that compares to my grandmothers until experiencing Dominic’s. The first time I stepped into Dominic’s I expected to eat average Italian food, and once I left the restaurant I was in love with the atmosphere, service, and food. Dominic’s has two locations within the Phoenix metro area and they all have a similar atmosphere with antique collectables scattered throughout the restaurant. Even though both locations have similar decorations they both have extremely different layouts. The 1950’s decorations and atmosphere was the first thing that stood out to me once I walked up to the entrance. The Tempe, Arizona Dominic’s is not like restaurant. The entire restaurant is built like a red house with green trim. Paintings are all over the outside of the building with slogans such as; legalize marinara, Dominic’s dispensary, and many more. As you the customers up to the side entrance there is a host stand outside where someone greets them with a big hello and smile. As the customers walk in Dominic’s the kitchen is the first thing they see, and the guest are greeted again by the kitchen staff. The inside of Dominic’s is upbeat and colorful, and there are small TV’s that play black and white cowboy movies. The restaurant smells of homemade Italian pasta and pizza. Dominic’s…...

St. Dominic de Guzman's Life

...University of Santo Tomas and we would like to share to all of you or reflection related to the life of St. Dominic de Guzman. The 10 lessons that we've learned from the movie. :) 1HST Group 6 Reza Farinas Alan Arriola Quina Ignacio Harley Samonte Rizelle Religioso Group Reflection on the film “St. Dominic: Light of the Church” The film is about a man, used by God to help and serve people especially those who are hungry and extremely affected by the war between Christians and Moors. Throughout his inspiring experiences and trials, there are lessons that give us enlightenment and a much wider perspective on how to be a good servant not only to others but also to God. First of these lessons is love. Dominic shows that everybody must show love and compassion to others. St. Dominic shows that aside from loving yourself, you should also love others. St. Dominic shows his love not only to his family and friends, but also to the strangers especially to those who can’t afford to buy food. Second, St. Dominic’s humbleness. He is very humble that even if he did a very small or simple mistake, he asks forgiveness to the person that he made mistake to. Even if he becomes a priest on the latter part of the film, he keeps his feet on the ground, showing that he is not unique to everyone and still a humble servant to his church and to good Lord himself. Third, St. Dominic thought us is his selflessness. He doesn’t care anymore to himself, and help all the people who need......

Life of St. Dominic

...[pic] St. Dominic de Guzman Life of St. Dominic de Guzman Young Dominic St. Dominic was born in Spain in 1170 of the illustrious house of Guzman. After graduation from the University of Palencia and ordination to the priesthood, he became a canon of St. Augustine and superior of the canons in the cathedral of Osma. Passing through southern France with his bishop in the year 1203, the young canon was shocked to witness the spiritual horrors wrought by the Albigensian heresy. It was in this storied domain of the troubadours that our zealous Castilian discovered his vocation and laid the foundation of the Order of Preachers. A Preachers Response To perpetuate among these benighted souls his future apostolate Dominic founded a three-fold religious Order, one for the converted Albigensian women at Prouille, one for an apostolic band of preachers, and another for men and women known as Tertiaries living in the world as lay Dominicans affiliated with the Order. Dominic, like St. Bernard before him, found the heretics unreceptive, stubborn and hostile, but the barking of the “Watchdog of the Lord” continued loud and clear, while his hunger for souls grew stronger.  The Holy Preacher  St. Dominic's humility, fatherly kindness, patience and joyfulness under persecution impressed even his enemies who at times mocked, spit at him and pelted him with stones or mud. Since he could not shed his blood for their salvation, he fasted, took......

St. Dominic

...Life of Saint Dominic St. Dominic (sometimes spelled St. Domonic) was born Dominic Guzman around 1170 in Old Castile, Spain. He was born into a family of privilege and educated in Spain where he attended university for ten years, studying the arts and theology. Education and learning were centerpieces of his life, as were kindness and charity. Saint Dominic Guzman is the patron saint of scientists and astronomy, among others. The life of St. Dominic is very interesting, as he traveled widely and met people from every level of society. His strong belief in education was cemented in the early 13th century whenhe accompanied the Bishop of Osma on a diplomatic mission that crossed into the south of France. There they encountered the Cathars, a group of educated people who were yet heretics. His attempts to preach to them failed, but he came away from the experience having seen a successful model: learning faith through schooling. He returned to the region later and established the first Catholic nunnery at Sainte Marie de Prouille, and the nuns later became known as the Sisters of Saint Dominic. He worked very hard in the following years to spread education about Christ. One well-recounted miracle associated with the story of St. Dominic occurred when he was in Fanjeaux, participating in a theological disputation or debate. His manuscripts and those of his adversaries were compared and various points highlighted. Someone suggested that the manuscripts of......

The Life of Saint Dominic De guzman was so inspirational that his life was made a film by the Dominican community of the Philippines. Through the aid of divine providence, this team was able to shoot a magnificent film in a country whose culture far differs from theirs. His life, filled with values of, self-sacrifice, mercy, humility, and love for god, was a stepping stone for the growth of Catholic population in Rome. Through an apostolic crusade to change the world, he and a couple of monks ventured in different parts of Europe, with only a staff and a bible, and preached of the   real truth. With the approval of the pope, this mission became official and lasted for a couple of years, making them travel on foot. He had people help him along the way and that made him very thankful, of everything. On the later part of the movie, he died of being tired, many mourned but he said that they should not.

...You are a leaf that doesn’t know it is part of a tree.”- Michael Crichton. If history is unknown to us how would we appreciate the present times? Participating to tours that shows and imparts the history of something is a great opportunity to see and reflect why and what life has been today. Last September 23, 2015, Wednesday, together with my classmates we are blessed to witness historical places like the St. Dominic Parish Church and the Bataan Tourism Center which caters different historical events and contributions of our fellow Filipinos here at Bataan. First stop is the Saint Dominic Parish Church which is known as Abucay Church, located at Brgy. Laon, Abucay, Bataan. The church is founded by Dominican Missionary Friars and built to be dedicated to St. Dominic de Guzman. This church witnessed the massacre of hundreds of Filipinos and Spaniards by the Dutch invaders. The building is more than 400 years old and one of the oldest church in the Philippines. The making of St. Dominic Parish Church was headed by Father Geronimo de Belen in early 1600s. Saint Dominic Church once suffered by a horrible damage because of the earthquake but still survived. On the later years it was destroyed by fire but was revived and reconstructed under Father Jose Diego Pelaez. This only shows how much we value our church as much as we value our creator. Second stop is the Bataan Tourism Center which is located at Roman Highway, Balanga, Bataan. Bataan Tourism Center was constructed through...

Furious 7 Review

...The last Fast and Furious One of the greatest films of 2015 and one that you don’t want to miss is Furious 7. Since 2001 The Fast and the Furious movies have caught the attention of billions of viewers all around the world, especially Furious 7 directed by James Wan. It will have you on the edge of your seat and you won’t want to blink! It is a film about family and how this group of friends have come a long way living their lives in the fast lane trying to keep each other alive as they embarked in new missions every movie. As Dominic Toretto states, “I don't have friends. I got family.” They began to see each other as family ever since Fast Five and now they continue their journey together to fight a man that is after them for revenge. According to Matt Singer “This is a lot of revenge for one movie to contain, and that’s before Dom and the rest of his crew (which also includes computer expert Chris “Ludacris” Bridges and comic relief Tyrese Gibson) hook up with a shadowy government operative named Mr. Nobody (Kurt Russell) and then start skydiving out of planes behind the wheel of their custom cars, a sport I guess we have to call “skydriving” (Singer 1). Everything in this film was great, from actions scenes from begging to end and more action all throughout the movie was insane. You wouldn’t believe the stunts they pulled off in this movie, you have to watch it to believe “skydriving.” David Blaustein states in his review “Not only are the "Furious 7" car chases and...

St.Dominic Savio

...St. Dominic Savio St. Dominic Savio was born in a village of Riva, in Piedmont, northern Italy. He was born on April 2, 1842, and died on March 9, 1957 at the age of 14. His parents were Carlo and Brigitta Savio. He had 9 siblings. Dominic was baptized as Domenico, which means “belonging to God”, and Savio means “wise”. His dad was a blacksmith, and his mom was a seamstress. Although they were very hard working, they were poor. Dominic’s parents tried very hard to give him a Christian upbringing. At the age of four, he was able to pray by himself. He was often found alone praying. He even reminded others to pray. Dominic was a good child. Dominic received his First Holy Communion at the early age of seven with a special permission from the priests. He would rather die than sin. Dominic’s mentor and teacher at the Oratory of St. Francis de Sales was St. John Bosco. He looked up to him, and wanted to learn from him. He was always obedient to his teachers, and chose his friends very carefully. Dominic renewed his First Communion promises at the altar at the age of twelve. John Bosco recorded this, and other incidents that happened for future reference. Dominic was very impressed after listening to a talk on sainthood, and decided he would become a saint. He did physical penances like making his bed with small stones and pieces of wood, covering with thin clothing in the winter, and fasting on bread and water. When John Bosco heard of this, they......

Malayao Grade 10 - Diego Mojica St. Dominic College – Basic Education A (Draft) Research Paper submitted to Mr. Poccholo M. Rudio November 4, 2015 CHAPTER 1 INTRODUCTION Introductory paragraphs A school or institution is built to provide learning and good education to students and prepare them for their future. Parents send their children in school to be knowledgeable on everything they see and do and enjoy life while learning. According to Albert Einstein, “Education is not the learning of facts, but the training of the mind to think.” It only means that education shouldn’t focus on teaching facts instead students should be learning while interacting with one another. Educating students is done by many ways, it may be by visual aids that will let the students view a clearer idea on the topic, it may also be by means of technology which is very popular nowadays especially to the present generation. But above all this, there’s this one way of educating students that would never get old, it is interacting students with other people by grouping them to work on a specific matter or task. This process would develop students to become sociable as they grew up and letting them share their opinion and ideas. It would help as well to engage and connect students with their skills and values while learning competently. Researcher reports that students learn best when they are actively...

Since the company has not offered the services to TakoSami, the amount paid should be recorded in the DC books as a liability.

...Kameron Bink and Dominic Sandoval have been very close friends since high school. After graduating from college on 2008, the two decided to put up a business. Being creative, technical and very intelligent individuals, they decided that they will put up an events company. Kameron, being the more extroverted person between the two, is the one in charge of public relations, promotions, and marketing. Dominic, on the other hand, given his prowess in finance and management, is in charge of the partnership’s administration and finances. The two did have a good working relationship with each other, and the company went from scratch to one leading in the small-scale events industry in the metro. Soon their business grew, faster than what they have anticipated. Because of that, their capital increased exponentially, and the partnership’s bank account now has more digits than they could imagine. Kameron and Dominic didn’t have any complaints against each other, mostly because of the friendship that they’ve been having ever since, and that they work exclusively from each other.
