1. During my time as an ice addict, everyday during that week was full of chaos, confusion, and denial. I had to eat ice at least 3 times daily. I had to wake up early in the morning to get the ice I need for the day without anybody in my family seeing me. The first thing on my mind every day was when I will get some ice again if I run out of the one I have. A lot of people were asking questions about my poster and some of them thought I was really an addict. Some people even offered to be my dealer of I can pay them a dollar for every time they got me ice. If only you could go a day or even a few hours without having some ice. I got used to the fuzzy feeling in my brain, the delusions, and the shakiness of using the ice after the 3rd day as an addict. Sober thoughts were quickly diminished when you get your hands on your supply of ice for the day. It didn’t matter how you got them – stealing, lying or begging. Deep down inside me, I was hoping that someone still really cares, and they will help me find a way to get out of this addiction.

2. Addiction is an opportunity destroyer. It has no respect for anyone and doesn’t discriminate. No one is immune to addiction. It goes beyond the affected person use of drugs. The stigma of addiction holds one back from getting the help they need, and it disconnects them from their selves, friends, spirituality and life.

3. After completing the assignment, I became more sympathetic towards drug addicts because a lot of them go through a lot .They go through depression and mood swings. They start having problems with their lives and lose interest in activities that used to be important to them. They also slowly start withdrawing from their friends and family and some of them get put out by their family because of their drug addiction.

4. A psychological counseling will be recommended. Counselors, who are experienced in…...

History of Ice creams Ice cream's origins are known to reach back as far as the second century B.C., although no specific date of origin or inventor has been undisputedly credited with its discovery. We know that Alexander the Great enjoyed snow and ice flavoured with honey and nectar. Biblical references also show that King Solomon was fond of iced drinks during harvesting. During the Roman Empire, Nero Claudius Caesar (A.D. 54-86) frequently sent runners into the mountains for snow, which was then flavoured with fruits and juices. Over a thousand years later, Marco Polo returned to Italy from the Far East with a recipe that closely resembled what is now called sherbet. Historians estimate that this recipe evolved into ice cream sometime in the 16th century. England seems to have discovered ice cream at the same time, or perhaps even earlier than the Italians. "Cream Ice," as it was called, appeared regularly at the table of...

Ice Cream

...MARKETING PLAN OF SELECTA ICE CREAM I – EXECUTIVE SUMMARY Selecta’s humble beginnings can be traced to the Arce family’s ice cream parlor in Manila in 1948. Its ice cream was well-known for its creaminess, authentic flavours, and unique gold can packaging—qualities that remained throughout the years.   In 1990, RFM Corporation bought Selecta from the Arce family to form Selecta Dairy Products, Inc. Known for its sharp entrepreneurship, RFM catapulted the rise of Selecta as a serious contender in the ice cream market always ahead in product innovations by creating new and exciting flavours like Cookies and Cream, Halo Halo, Ube Macapuno, and Chocolate Almond Fudge, and supported by heart-warming media campaigns that depict Selecta as an ice cream that creates family bonding moments. In 1997, Selecta became the market leader in the Philippine capital, which accounted for 60% of the nation’s ice cream consumption. In 1999, to complement its frozen novelties category and strengthen itself for competition, RFM teamed up with Unilever, the largest ice cream company in the world to form Selecta Walls Incorporated. The joint-venture proved to be a success and in 2000, Selecta defeats competition to become the national ice cream leader.   And that has been the story since with its passion for exceeding the expectations of consumers, unwavering dedication to quality, and unrelenting quest to improve itself through its innovations, Selecta or Unilever RFM Ice Cream,......

Ice Movement

...Ice movement Cold based glaciers (POLAR) occur in the high Latitudes where the temperature of the snow fall is far below zero degrees and the ice of the glacier remains at below zero throughout the year. These glaciers therefore stay frozen to the bedrock all year and there fore there is little ice movement and therefore little erosion. Greenland and the Antarctic have cold based glaciers. Warm based glaciers or temperate glaciers have water present throughout the ice mass and this water acts as a lubricant. This may be for a period of the year or all year, and allows for much greater rates of movement and thus more erosion. These glaciers are often found in mountain glaciers at lower latitudes but higher altitudes than polar glaciers. Cold based glaciers move mainly by internal deformation. These glaciers are frozen to the bed and therefore only move 1-2cm a day. The ice crystals within the glacier orientate themselves in the direction of ice movement. This allows ice crystals to slide past one another. Where the ice movement is fast enough crevasses may develop. Temperate glaciers move mainly through BASAL SLIPPAGE. If the glacier moves, this can raise the temperature of the base ice through pressure and friction. The basal ice can then melt, and this water helps to allow the ice to slip more easily over its bed. This could move at 2-3m per day and pick up material with which it can use to erode its bed. This is related to regelation, which is the phenomenon of......

...evaluated the ice cream industry from a Porter’s Five Forces perspective to determine the attractiveness of the market. Next, we observed Amy’s Ice Creams’ strategy through interviews and class concepts to see how Amy’s competes. Then, we assessed the strengths and weaknesses of the company’s strategy to offer recommendations for Amy’s Ice Creams going forward. Production and Sales The biggest activities in the ice cream industry consist of production and sales. In 2011, U.S. manufacturers produced 1.53 billion gallons of ice cream, a 6.5 percent increase from 2009. In addition, U.S. ice cream sellers sold 25.4 billion servings of ice cream and other frozen desserts. This represents a 2.4 percent increase from the previous year, a slight increase after two year of stagnant sales (New Hope 360). There are two channels for ice cream sales. The first channel is food service where customers visit an ice cream parlor and pay a premium for the product. The second channel is retail where customers purchase their favorite brand of ice cream from a retail chain like Wal-Mart.  Food services constitute a larger portion of the two channels accounting for 57 percent of overall ice cream sales (New Hope 360).   Products    The products in the ice cream industry include premium ice creams and novelties.  Premium ice creams include sorbet, sherbet, and fruity flavored ice products packaged by the pint or quart. Novelties are separately packaged ice cream products like ice cream......

Ice Fili

...ICE FILI Context: Ice cream became one of consumers’ favorite and inexpensive snacks in Russia as early as the seventeenth century, one of the leading ice cream producers was known as Ice Fili. Although Ice Fili survived many of Russia’s difficult times such as the financial crisis and decrease in the sale of ice cream, there were other challenges and threats that were detrimental to the Ice Fili business. Many competitors such as Nestle, Baskin Robbins, Unilever, and Ben & Jerry’s proposed great threat to Ice Fili. Each of these businesses offered different ideas and products than the other. Ice Fili only offered a total of 170 different flavors, adding 20 new flavors each year. On the other hand Baskin Robbins offered 650 different flavors. Therefore, Baskin Robbins may have a better chance at consumers purchasing their products because more of those products may be on the shelves than the Ice Fili products. Another challenging factor that Ice Fili faced was the way they marketed their products. Since a majority of companies in Russia spent their money on television advertising, Ice Fili decided to do the same. Companies such as Nestle and Unilever accounted for almost three quarters of television advertising, therefore, when Ice Fili produced their own television advertisements, the ads barely mentioned the company name or the products that they were promoting. In order for Ice Fili to successfully promote their products they should have come up with other ways......

First we shall eliminate the other 2 segments and then derive the fact as to why the segment of our choice is a clear winner. The below mentioned 2 segments have several benefits, such as existing knowledge, higher purchasing power, open mind for novel items and experiences but all of these would be diminished keeping the long term view in mind. Middle & Upper income working professionals: (drawbacks only) * Conservatizm , preventing risky purchases arising from the cultural opinion of cold being bad for health and with growing health awareness, thus thinking twice about their purchase. * Upper limit to market/ product development and lesser scope for innovation for expanding the market potential. * It is difficult to change existing mind-sets that are culturally driven.

As Russia’s largest domestic ice cream producer, they had held onto their market leadership for many years. However, increasing competition from foreign companies, along with the emergence of regional producers of ice cream led to Ice-Fili’s market share erosion in the recent years. Porter’s five forces model was the primary method to analyze Ice-Fili’s industry and its competitiveness in the industry. Segmentation analysis was used for further study of the ice cream industry in Russia. The analysis was carried on key variables like distribution channel, buying behavior, geographic locations, and product characteristics. Based on this model, various alternatives were considered. From these alternatives, it was possible to form a recommendation: Ice-Fili will need to focus on the strengthening of its distribution channel through various efforts including marketing and raising of capital while focusing on its long history and brand recognition. Above all, availability of its product to the consumers is the key to Ice-Fili’s success. Porters Five......

Ice-Fili

...To survive in Russia’s ice cream industry during the 11 years since the collapse of the former Soviet Union was no small feat (see Exhibits 1 and 2 ). To be successful in these turbulent times was nothing short of amazing to industry observers. In 2002, Ice-Fili, a midsized Russian company with more than $25 million in sales, was Russia’s top ice cream producer. Surprisingly, it had outlasted several well-known international companies such as Ben & Jerry’s, which exited the Russian market in 1997, and Unilever, which left in 2001. Ice-Fili had not only successfully transitioned from the tight controls of the Soviet regime to the infant Russian open-market economy in 1992, but it had also successfully navigated its way through the difficult times of Russia’s 1998 financial crisis. Ice-Fili was fighting to maintain its market share leadership in the increasingly competitive Russian ice cream market, which had decreased over the past few years to about a half-billion dollars in sales. Nestlé, which advertised heavily, was Ice-Fili’s fiercest competitor. While most ice cream producers were left to fight in an already saturated ice cream kiosk system, Baskin & Robbins and Haagen-Dazs1 had positioned themselves as premium ice cream producers, distributing through franchised restaurant and café networks. At the other end of the competitive spectrum, the small regional ice cream producers, which were believed to have lower production costs than Ice-Fili and other Moscow-based......

Fire & Ice

...Fire and Ice Will the world ever come to an end? And if so, should it end in fire or in ice? These two core questions are raised while reading Robert Frost’s poem “Fire and Ice”. But just for a moment, if we were to take the physical world out of context and replace it with those who live in it, then maybe there is something more to it. Maybe the physical world will not end in such tragic ways, but perhaps society will. These two powerful elements, fire and ice, that are on complete opposite sides of the spectrum, somehow bring out a thought-provoking process about the deterioration of society. The two elements that Frost incorporates into his poem are very vital to its analysis. Fire can symbolize many things negatively as well as positively. The negative affiliations with fire include chaos, war, ruin, and destruction. Few years prior to the American Revolution, there was a chaotic clashing between American colonists and the British because of heavily imposed taxes, thus, portraying an unorganized and hostile society. Plenty of wars have occurred on this earth because of societies. Ruin and destruction also exemplify the notion of this idea. After the tragic 9/11 incident in the United States, many Americans developed such a hatred for the Muslim people (and vice versa) to the point where racism was deemed acceptable. The actions were responsible in the production of one society against another leaving practically no lee-way for peace. Although these......

Investigatory Project - Ice Insulation

...Study on the Feasibility of Identifying an Alternative Insulator for Ice Submitted to: Mrs. Marites N. Caslib (Physics Instructor) Submitted by: Jhann Reinner M. Pagayon February 6, 2012 Abstract Thermal insulation is the reduction of heat transfer between objects in thermal contact or in range of radiative influence. Heat transfer is the transfer of thermal energy between objects of different temperature. Heat flow is an inevitable consequence of contact between objects of different temperature. Heat flows by means of conduction or convection. Thermal insulation provides a means to maintain a gradient of temperature, by providing a region of insulation in which heat flow is reduced or thermal radiation is reflected rather than absorbed. This study is aimed upon identifying the best alternative insulator that can be used in ice plants and in everyday living. Some materials are better insulators than others, so the researcher used five different materials in conducting the insulation test and these were grocery bag, dry leaves, egg carton, feathers, and sand. The duration of time for each ice cube to melt was recorded to identify the best insulator from commonly found materials at home. Plastics used in ice plants were compared to other insulating materials in this study. Aside from the time consumed in melting ice cubes by each material, the researcher also computed for......

To Dr. Alberto Talaid, PIE our special project adviser who has been there to support us.To our friends for teaching how to prepare the financial statement and spending their time even though they’re busy. To our dear family who have been always there supporting and being understanding in giving the time for us to spend this project. And above all to our Almighty God a million thanks for the strength, knowledge, good health, wisdom and the guidance that enlightened our hearts and minds that this study would be possible. INTRODUCTION Ice manufacturing has started in early this century. Prior to these factories ice was imported from the mountains, at a very high financial cost, and did not last too long due to temperature. But these new factories started producing three to four tons of ice per day. This was enough to support the population more so than ever before. Ice was preserved over the warm summer months by packing the ice in saw dust for insulation. Instantly the ice business became big business. Many entrepreneurs started investing money in formulating mechanical refrigeration at an economical cost. Interest in ice making equipment was at full force in the early twentieth century. Uncertainty of supplies, great fluctuations in price and sanitation standards made natural ice obsolete to the artificial product. Ice making equipment and refrigeration processes spread throughout the country. Ice making......
