this entry is a part of 'Globalization and cultures' topic

Globalization of the food process depends on "eternal search" for new sensations and international trading system. Research, which was made by ecologist Yana Vamosy for the University of Calgary, demonstrates a superiority of humankind all over the world in the terms of food diversity. Our food contains products related to the large number of species. Also scientists analyzed food ingredients. Most conventional food is made up from more than 20 ingredients. The conclusion they made is that the hamburger is a symptom of globalization.

During the centuries in Russia food was known as homemade food, no more. Only the 20th century has changed everything: fast food became the industry. In Russia the empire of fast-food has won hearts and stomachs of growing generation and adults, who do not make a cult of meal. The process took only 15 years! Russian children get used to eat such food as crisps, rusks, noodle of fast cooking, fruit-drops. That is why the government of our country has forbidden selling crisps, candies and fizzy drinks at schools. The tradition of having meal at home is very strong, especially here in the Far East. However, we live faster and faster and as a result, homemade food is being gradually superseded by prepared food. Having a lunch at home in the middle of a working day becomes a luxury.

I'm really sorry for that blog entry. But i think we need it.

For the long time as the word 'blog' is in our 'Global Learning' life i notice how many times we use it.

Well, i wouldn't care really, but when it comes to using the word in Stanford blog, i feel a bit confused when some people use it wrong. And i think Stanford students really see the mistakes and think that russian peoply know nothing about modern technology!

So, i want to say that 'blog' is a whole web-page (actually it's more than that) and we can't say 'I added my blog there' or 'Here are the new blogs', because we have just two blogs - our Global Learning and the Stanford blog. Blog means the system that lest us add information, read it etc.  (in fact, blog can also be the verb which means to add items to a blog or maintain, or add content to a blog)

What we create, write, upload etc can be called: message, blog item, some other werds. But the one most correct is 'post', or blog post. We do work with posts (noun), we post (verb) them to the blog.

What you are reading currently is called a post, and it is in the blog. I did not add a blog, a posted an item. Hope that is clear...

Once again, sorry for teaching but i think we better make nicer impressions ouf us if we use correct modern language:)

We made it even better today!
I am proud of you!

We learned and progressed sooo much! We will keep on moving ahead.

Please, don't hesitate to share your ideas as feedback if you "forgot" to say something right after the conference. Each of your idea is exceptionally valuable to develop critical thinking and to improve.
By the way, we are going to have the next conferencein the electronic library, so we will have each group come up in front of the screen, like Stanford does, and you said you liked that way of presenting by groups sitting together in front, and changing each other.

Welcome to the next week work on your blogs and to the next gethering,

Thank you,

One of the researches on Stanford blogs has led me to an interesting web page. And I think it will be interesting for those who want to cares about how do they write! 

This web page analyzes your English! The program tries to tell your gender and some other info, based on the text you type.

The Test Page

What you need is any text that you've written with the lenght of about 300 words or more. Sure you have such texts!

You can also read the article about that analysis

And no, I won't tell my results:)

Here is the link to Google map, which was done by David Newell. He and Carolyn Ross already have added two marks to a map. Now we have some more places marked on a map of the world. Please, have a look, then tell what comments do you want to see on that map, and what cities do you want to mark. For example, your birthplace, the city you like the most etc. Leave here as the comments!

To enjoy the map try clicking on the 'satellite' buttun on the right top corner, when you are on the site. And remember that it 'eats up your traffic' pretty much

Follow to the map with that link

We now can see the photos from the videoconference form another side of the screen!Carolyn Ross has added 58 photos to the group.

Carolyn Ross: "Hi, everyone! I have posted a photo album of our first Khabarovsk <--> Stanford videoconference here -- so take a look! I'm also in the process of posting some video of the conference as well! Enjoy! :) Carolyn"

Here I upload some of them...

I think I'll try to give them some of our photos, too.

And, those who was invited but still does not have the facebook account: that is simple! Just go to, and register.

And, of course, don't forget to read the Stanford blog! They are adding new comments to our essays
