It originated as a small booth in the North Coast in 2008 catering for the high class society living within and around the Diplomats 3 Resort. Their competitive edge in sahel was to provide freshly baked bread in a place where it is rare to find fresh bread at all. Their edge was successful and experienced a positive push in sales via word of mouth. After two consecutive flourishing summers, TBS opened its first capital outlets in Zamalek followed by Heliopolis. However, they greatly expanded their range of pastries to include freshly baked muffins, don nuts and a wide variety of bread ex. white and brown baguette and different types of Italian bread such as focaccia and ciabatta, soft white bread which includes burger buns and rolls; toast; mint bread, a range of whole wheat German breads, and the hard to come by corn bread is also available. TBS also provides a sandwich station where consumers choose their type of bread, and their fillings from a range of cold cuts, cheeses, dressings and salad components. It provides finger foods, canapés and savory pastries, brioches and mini pizzas as well if consumers order these in large quantities one day in advance. Regarding our group consumer behavior project, we intend to conduct an extensive research concerning the Egyptian market, a typical TBS consumer, TBS itself, TBS’s......

Is Culling Be Used to Eradicate Bovine Tb?

...Can culling be used to eradicate bovine TB? Bovine TB is an infectious disease of cattle but can also be present in other mammals which are caused by the bacterium Mycobacterium bovis (M. bovis). This disease is also zoonotic which means it can be transmitted from animals to people and cause a similar disease to human TB but is not very common. Bovine TB takes place over a prolonged period of time and the clinical signs of the disease are: weakness, loss of appetite, weight loss, fluctuating fever, intermittent hacking cough, diarrhoea, large prominent lymph nodes. The disease is more prevalent in most of Africa, parts of Asia however other countries such as the UK still have significant pockets of infection despite reducing Bovine TB. Areas of England that have high incidences of Bovine TB in cattle also tend to have high number of badgers. The disease is spread by contact between infected animals and non-affected animals. The usual route of infection is by inhaling infected droplets which are expelled from the lungs by coughing which makes it mainly a respiratory disease. Calves and humans can also become infected by ingesting raw milk from infected cows. As the course of the disease is slow it can take up to months or years before the animal dies but in that time the disease can pass to other herd mates before it begins to manifest the clinical signs. The standard method for detection of TB is the tuberculin test, where a small amount of antigen is injected into the......

Tb and Women

...TB and Women Background: Tuberculosis(TB) is an infectious bacterial disease caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis, which most commonly affects the lungs. It is transmitted from person to person via droplets from the throat and lungs of people with the active respiratory TB disease. In healthy people, infection with Mycobacterium tuberculosis often causes no symptoms, since the person’s immune system acts to “wall off” the infection. These people have latent TB infection, where they do not feel sick and cannot spread the bacteria to others. However, in some cases, the bacteria continue to multiply in the body making a person sick with active TB disease. The symptoms of active TB of the lung are coughing, sometimes with sputum or blood, chest pains, weakness, weight loss, fever and night sweats. It is a disease of poverty affecting mostly young adults in their most productive years. The vast majority of TB deaths are in the developing world. Left untreated, each person with active TB disease will infect on average between 10 and 15 people every year and this continues the TB transmission. Overall, one-third of the world’s population is currently infected with the TB bacillus. 5-10% of people who are infected with TB bacilli (but who are not infected with HIV) become sick or infectious at some time during their life. People with HIV and TB infection are much more likely to develop TB. The risk for developing TB disease is also higher in persons with diabetes, other chronic...

Tb - Epidemiology and Nursing Role

...currently infects one third of the global population. In 2012, TB was responsible for killing 1.3 million people, making it the second largest fatal disease next to AIDS. The purpose of this paper is to describe tuberculosis, explain contributing factors, describe the disease in relation to the epidemiologic triangle, and finally discuss the role of community nurses in the prevention and treatment of the disease. Tuberculosis is a respiratory disease spread through the air. This is of course a simple definition and robs the disease of its true nature. In order to fully understand tuberculosis one must leverage the rules of communicable disease investigations. In that vein, tuberculosis is an infectious disease caused by mycobacterium, specifically mycobacterium tuberculosis. TB, as it is often referred, is indeed spread through infected sputum, carried through the air from a host to a new host. Once in the lungs, the bacteria become latent or active. Latent TB infection means the patient is not symptomatic, yet will test positive on skin test. The second route leads to active tuberculosis disease. A patient who has active tuberculosis disease will show a variety of symptoms including weakness, chills, loss of appetite, night sweats, and of course respiratory symptoms such as persistent cough of three weeks or more, bloody sputum, and chest pain (CDC). The World Health Organization reports the combined manifestations of TB infect approximately one third of the global......

Tb Mating Plan

...post-partum (Varner, 1983). Vaccinations of Equine Herpesvirus should be administered at 5,7 and 9 months of pregnancy and equine viral arteritis anytime but the last 2 months of pregnancy (Davies Morel, 2008). Records of all the above aid in the easy running of a covering, pregnancy and parturition knowing the mare is fully immunized and the foal is in as little danger as possible. If documents and plans can be given out to owners, they will gain trust in the stud knowing their horse is in safe and organised hands. The stallion being used to cover Palomita would be Oasis Dream, a stallion with an AEI of 1.8 and DI of 1.83 and who is currently the top flat racing sire by ‘total prize’. Along with this in 2013 he was the ‘leading sire in Europe by winners and by percentage winners to runners’ (RacingPost.com, 2013) and the ‘Leading British-based sire by yearling average at Tattersalls October Yearline Sale, Book 1, in 2012 and 2013’ (Juddemonte, 2014). All these statistics proving his worth in stud making the covering fee for Oasis Dream expensive but understandable. Although it’s expense at £85,000, his progeny have high success rates and when examined show he has managed to produce many Group 1 winners and some progeny winning values of over two million. The success of his progeny therefore have raised his stud fee as well his performance, he currently has had 4 wins and 2 placing’s from his 9 starts and has earned £433,737.

Tb in Nigeria

...Alabama Tuberculosis in Nigeria Tuberculosis (TB) is a communicable airborne disease that has no respect of age, gender, color or nationality, and globally, it is a major health problem. This paper will discuss the global importance and economic impact of TB, human and financial resource allocation for TB in Nigeria, health policies and initiatives related to TB in Nigeria, overall progress made and resources not already appropriated that is needed to combat TB in Nigeria. Significance and Economic Impact According to CDC (2013), the United States has made significant progress towards eradicating TB while other countries worldwide are struggling to find an end to the disease. CDC also reported that, 62% of all reported incidents of TB and 82.7% of multidrug-resistant TB events in the United States were found amongst persons that originated from other countries, and over 75% of these people were born in other countries ("Global TB," 2013). About nine million new cases of TB and nearly two million deaths are reported each year globally ("Global TB," 2013). Nigeria is located in West Africa, and it is ranked the tenth among the 22 High Burden Countries and the fourth in Africa with TB ("Stoptb," 2013). According to Stoptb (2013), the exact burden of TB disease in Nigeria in terms of incidence, prevalence, socio-economic indices and mortality is unknown. However, World Health Organization (WHO) in 2011 estimated 320,000 cases of TB with yearly occurrence of 199 cases per......

Epidemiology of Tb

...Tuberculosis Epidemiology Melinda A. Graham Grand Canyon University: NRS 427 November 15, 2015 Tuberculosis (TB) is a disease that has been present in history for many years. Even with modern medicine and the advances that have been made to treat TB it is still claiming lives. This disease is caused by mycobacterium tuberculosis, which is transferred from person to person ultimately affecting the lungs, but can cause harm to other parts of the body (Center for Disease Control and Prevention [CDC], 2015). Although this disease is not as common as it once was in the United States it is still present in our world and causing mortalities. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), TB “ranks as the second leading cause of death from a single infections disease” (2015, para 1). Therefore, it is necessary and important for healthcare individuals to be familiar with TB and understand the epidemiology behind the disease. Being aware of the role of the community health nurse plays in regards to this disease and being aware of resources that can help the community is fundamental in providing for the wellbeing of all. To become familiar as to how the community health nurse can provide for community members with TB it is important to understand the typical signs and symptoms a patient may display. Some of the symptoms a patient may report in association to TB is generalized weakness, recent weight loss, and reports of a fever, night sweats, hemoptysis, chest......

Discuss the Transmission, Treatments and Global Impacts of Tb and Hiv

...TB Symptoms: - feelings of sickness or weakness, weight loss, fever, and night sweats. The symptoms of TB disease of the lungs also include coughing, chest pain, and the coughing up of blood. Symptoms of TB disease in other parts of the body depend on the area affected. Trasmission: TB is an airborne disease. Germs are put into the air when a person with TB disease of the lungs or throat coughs, sneezes or speaks. If an individual breathes in these pathogens they can become infected. Life cycle of pathogens: Stage 1: Onset (1-7 days) The bacteria os inhales through the air and is engulfed by the alveolar macrophages. Depending on the strain disease and antimycobacterial capabilities of macrophage the disease will pro cress differently. In many cases the bacteria will reproduce and start the infection. Stage 2: Symbiosis (7-21 days) If the macrophages do not successfully kill the bacteria they will reproduce until the macrophage bursts.Then the bacteria are engulfed by other macrophages that arrive from the blood stream. Neither the host or the bacteria id harmed. Stage 3: Initial Caseous Necrosis (14-21 days) Development of decease begins when bacterial reproduction slows. The growth of the bacteria slows because as the bacteria reproduce they kill the surrounding macrophages and have fewer cells that they can divide within. The increased number of bacteria also produce anoix condition and reduce the pH. At this point the bacteria can......
