Columbia Restaurant Food Waste Feeding Rosebud Continuum’s Biodigesters One Bucket at a Time
I’ve started a project with my workplace, The Columbia Restaurant on Sand Key, to help reduce their carbon footprint! My goal is to reduce as much food waste as possible from the restaurant. I started yesterday by bringing 6 5-gallon buckets to collect food. This morning I took the buckets up to Rosebud to feed the dragon! It’s a lot of work, and I’d love some help with transportation and grinding so that I can reduce the food waste even more. Today , I collected about 7 1/2 5-gallon buckets. The kitchen staff is still adjusting to putting food waste into the buckets, but I’m seeing improvement already! It just takes one person to make a huge difference. Everybody is on board and excited about contributing. My next goal is to get the servers and bartenders to contribute by adding food waste coming back from tables to the buckets. It would be amazing if restaurants had inSinkerators to grind food throughout the day which could then be picked up to be used for fertilizer and clean methane gas. We need to limit the amount of food waste that goes into landfills, it’s 1 of the top 3 contributors to greenhouse gas emissions, and we could be using it to grow more food or for energy. The United States wastes about 40% of the food produced. We could decrease this substantially by using biodigesters. I am going to do my project on the idea of turning restaurants into fertilizer and gas producing machines with zero food-waste. This will include ideas for change, steps to take, implementation, cost, and return on investment. If anyone is interested in contributing, we can do the project together, and you can help me transport and grind this organic material.
Hi, For this assignment, (1) Identify the environmental issues: fabric waste/ Cloth waste. (According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency statistics, there are about 1.3 billion tons of clothing in landfills, equivalent to the waste of each person able to produce 200 T-shirts per year …… and these clothes will not decompose for ten years, the toxic chemical dyes produced, then contaminate the local soil and groundwater). This will be the core issue that the ENGO wants to work on. Identify this environmental issue, and believe it can be addressed by social actions carried out by ENGO.
(2)Provide a diagnosis of this environmental problem.
(3)Include the nature of the environmental problems: Water waste/water pollution, Soil pollution.
(4)conditions (both direct and indirect) that have given rise to it and its consequence on the environment and society.
This lab helps you understand how the elements Carbon and Nitrogen cycle through living (bio) and nonliving (geo) components of earth (organisms, air, water, and earth). In this lab, you simulate the carbon cycle, and learn how human interactions disrupt natural cycles of the ecosystem.
To understand how elements (carbon nitrogen and phosphorous) naturally move through the ecosystem
To analyze how humans alter these cycles, and the effects on earth’s air, water or land
To formulate and test hypothesis in performing simulation experiments
Apply these concepts in real-life, and propose solutions to minimize eutrophication
Learning from these biogeochemical cycles ties into future course topics of water pollution, air pollution, biodiversity, energy sources, and climate change.
To do this lab, two documents are needed:
First, view the Lab Background
Next, complete the Lab Report.
Rewrite statement intent and DukeIRB by viewing feedback
Please see my guide note for more detail. Rewrite the Intent first. Since lots of them are the same in IRB, you can just copy and paste them after you finish. Also, please add references and in-text citations to the reference part. I will provide you with some papers you may need.
Citizen Science Project
What is citizen science? Why are an increasing number of projects becoming available which invite citizen participation in scientific research? What are possible connections between citizen science and science literacy—sustainable connections? In this project, you will have the opportunity to participate in a citizen science project and discover answers to these questions, and many more…..
Visit Zooniverse—www.zooniverse.org—and select three projects related to environmental science to participate in.
Read through the background information related to your projects and follow the project data collection instructions.
Write an 8-10 page report reflecting on your experience. Include the following sections in your report:
What is citizen science? Why are an increasing number of projects becoming available which invite citizen participation in scientific research? What are possible
connections between citizen science and science literacy—sustainable connections?
Which projects did you participate in? What is the purpose of the research?
What activities did you engage in? What was your overall experience like? Do you feel you have a better understanding of the topic covered in the research now that you have participated in research dedicated to that topic?
Future Citizen Science Project
Think of a topic related to the environment that you feel would make a good citizen science project. What would the delivery of that project look like—research question? activities? participants? etc.

Assignment: To select two research articles based on your research essay and evaluate its sources
(My topic for the Research Essay: Decentralized Wastewater Treatment in Rural and Suburban Regions)
Purpose: To determine the effectiveness of sources in research writing
Due Date: Sunday, July 4th by midnight Requirements: Find two research articles based on your research essay and evaluate the sources in short answers.
Word limit: >500 words. Consider these questions for your evaluation:
What is the type of source?
How is the source used in the article? How is the source integrated into the article?
How does the source support the main idea? In other words, how is the source effective?
Are the sources sufficient or is there another source(s) that could better support the article?
*Make sure to include the URL or information of the article in the written assignment at the end of the assignment. Work Cited page is not needed for this assignment.
The exam consists of essay four questions. Each question should be answered individually in essay format. You will have four separate answers. Please use MLA format when writing your essay. This is the format used in the Sierra College English Department. If you have questions you should visit the Writing Center online or on the fourth floor of the LRC on the Rocklin campus. All references should be cited. You may use any reference you wish. Textbooks and lecture materials are also fine to use as resources. Each prompt requires one page,
Phenotypic plasticity: can be advantageous, but also can be disadvantageous because it has costs
There may be costs both to developing an altered phenotype (protein synthesis) and to maintaining the ability to do so
Acclimation takes time and is triggered by cues such as temperature or day length
In some cases, it is advantageous to evolve a preference for a safe space, an environment that is relatively free of predators
Herbivorous insects often suffer less predation and parasitism if they reside on some host plant species rather than on others.
LOOK FOR a scholarly article that talks about it and talk about it.
Big question: Is the species an urban adapter, exploiter, or urban avoider based on scientific evidence?
Follow up questions:
Why do they live in certain parts of the city?
How does human activity help determine distribution?
What is the natural habitat of the species?
Why are the species able to thrive (or not) in cities?
