what would you grade this informative speech out of 100 points I’m in a high school speech class?

Close your eyes and imagine one of the most deadly viruses that could kill hundreds of people, birds, and other animals in the world this virus is called the bird flu virus. The bird flu virus is one of the most worst flu viruses that is infecting the whole world as of now and is killing many people, birds, and other animals daily due to so many birds are carrying this virus and are infecting humans as well as other birds and other animals with this virus. The main areas that I will be discussing in this speech are what the bird flu virus is, what the signs and symptoms of bird flu are, and how to prevent yourself from not getting bird flu.

To begin with, Bird flu can also be known as avian influenza or H5N1. Bird flu is one of the most leading causes of death of many humans, birds, and other animals in the world today. Bird flu is considered to be a respiratory disease. There are four different types of the bird flu virus H5N2, H5N3, H9N2, and H5N1. Bird flu can infect the lungs and other parts of the human body such as the muscles and the throat. The bird flu virus is caused by birds receiving this virus in there nose and then once the virus that is in the birds nose hardens up and breaks into pieces, the bird can then infect other birds and people and also other animals such as pigs and tigers with this virus. The bird can infect a person, another bird, or another animal with this virus by their saliva. Normally right after the bird receives this virus it automatically dies. Some birds that carry this virus are ducks, sea birds, crows, and shore birds, these birds can infect other birds such as chickens and turkeys. In 2000 there were 200 chickens that died on a poultry farm from the bird flu virus. According to the July 20, 2007 edition of Farmers Weekly in the article called “migrated birds bring risk of avian influenza”, farmers weekly stated that birds that have passed through Germany, France, and Czech Republic may be at risk for having bird flu. About 45 countries in the world have been infected with bird flu such as Nigeria, Japan, Hong Kong, Thailand, Poland, and Vietnam. Bird flu has also infected countries in Asia, Europe, Russia, Africa, and Canada. In 1997 bird flu had its first out break in Hong Kong killing six people and millions of birds. According to the student edition of the world almanac titled “Avian flu” the world almanac stated that between 2003 to 2005 there have been 115 people who have been infected with bird flu and 50% of those people died. There has been only one known vaccine for bird flu so far. According to the April 26, 2006 edition of The Journal of American medical association in an article titled “mixed success found for avian flu” Tracy Hampton stated that an experimental vaccine from an inactivated avian influenza virus can induce immune responses in about more than half of healthy adults this vaccine requires two doses of it to be taken in order for the vaccine to work.

Next off, Bird flu symptoms can range from being mild to sever. Some of the symptoms of bird flu are diarrhea, fever, sore throats, muscle aches, coughs, swelling of the head, lack of appetite, and respiratory distress. Birds may experience a drop in egg production if they have caught this virus. Some people who have a regular flu virus on top of the bird flu virus, the two viruses will combine in the body and form a new type of virus which can be even more deadly. Symptoms of bird flu virus usually occur within two to four days after being infected with the virus. Some people can develop a pink eye or an eye infection. Sometimes bird flu can lead to phenomena. Some people can be hospitalized if bird flu virus gets sever enough. Sometimes people can go into a coma for weeks. Some birds and people may die without showing any signs or symptoms of having bird flu. The drug Relenza may help to relieve the symptoms of bird flu. According to the January 7, 2007 edition of New Scientist in an article titled “the bird flu threat” Debora Mackenzie stated that a drug called tamiflu saved a few Asian victims who had the bird flu virus but in order for tamiflu to work you have to take it within 48 hours within the start of the bird flu symptoms in order for it to make a difference.

Lastly, one way to prevent yourself from not getting bird flu would be to avoid open air markets. Be very cautious when at a poultry farm some of the birds or other animals there may be infected with bird flu. Try to avoid rural areas sometimes infected birds with the bird flu virus like to hang out there. Always be sure to wash your hands a lot during the day germs tend to always be on your hands. Also be sure to always cover your mouth when you cough this is a very easy way to spread bird flu to other people. Never eat anything with undercooked eggs in it. Never eat raw or not well cooked meat this can be very dangerous and can be a good way to catch bird flu. According to the science and development homepage titled “bird flu update” the science and development homepage had stated that a 23 year old teacher from northern Phu Tho province in northern Vietnam had became ill with the bird flu virus after eating contaminated poultry. Consider getting a flu shot at your local clinic this flu shot will protect you from hopefully not getting bird flu but the shot wont guarantee you that you wont get bird flu. Bird flu has caused many people in Asia to have to wear surgical mask in public so that people that aren’t infected won’t catch the bird flu virus from them and some people must avoid all social contact with other people so that they don’t infect the people who don’t have bird flu. Some restaurants and theaters and schools are going to close in Asia in order to prevent the spread of bird flu.

In conclusion the bird flu virus is one of the most dangerous viruses in the world today that could kill hundreds of people, birds, and other animals. So now you know what bird flu is, what the symptoms of bird flu are, and ways that you can prevent yourself from not getting bird flu. So the next time that you go to a poultry farm or come in contact with a bird or a person that is infected with the bird flu virus you will know how to take proper precautions so that you don’t catch the bird flu virus.


Some grammatical errors, some awkward sounding sentences here and there and some of the paragraphs/sentences had repetitive words (i.e virus)

How To Build A Smoker For All Your Meat-smoking Needs

Smoking animal food is a fine art that many have lost or never even known it today’s society. This is the process of cooking meat, fish, turkey, chicken or any other wild game by a smoking method. Unlike grilling, broiling or baking, the temperature used in smoking meats is much lower and becomes blended with the wood that is used to smoke the food. In turn, this type of cooking does take a bit longer than other ways of cooking, yet the taste is so enjoyable, that often it is worth the extra effort. When a person chooses to build a smoker for their home and personal use, they usually have an idea of what they want by looking at other smokers available on the market as well. Then, putting their handiwork to the test, they often create smokers that are hard to beat, even among the manufactured types.

Ways To Build A Smoker For Personal Use

There are many reasons why one would desire to build a smoker for their own personal use. First, if one is handy or enjoys building things as well as loves animal foods, then this is the perfect match. A man or woman who has developed skills in carpentry will find that to build a smoker is an easier task than they may think. Using scraps that one may have around the home is an ideal way to begin the process. Secondly, a person will often save a great deal of money building their own smoker as opposed to buying a pre-manufactured brand. Often, these brands cost $150 to $200 and can be even more expensive, depending on the size and quality of the smoker. Most people can build their own for far less than they would find in a store, especially when using parts that they already have available.

Building a smoker can be done using scrap metal that one has laying around the shed or barn just gathering dust. Even aluminum garbage can make a wonderful smoker with the right preparations. Attaching the scrap metal in a rectangular shape with an enclosed section is the first step, then adding the type of power one wants to use, whether electric or propane. Adding the wood to the bottom of the smoker is essential, as the flavors of the meats depend on the wood. No matter what size, shape or style one would like, building a smoker can be a wonderful project to undertake…with a tasty treat at the end!

How can I help my roommate to eat healthy?

I’m a college student who is trying to be decently health conscious – eating right, going to the gym semi-regularly, etc. Unfortunately, my roommate (who I’ve actually known since the 6th grade) doesn’t seem to feel the same way. He is probably the pickiest eater I’ve ever come across, and his diet is absolutely disgusting. Because he’s actually pretty skinny and seemingly healthy, he sees no problem with his eating habits. What do you think?

First of all, he completely despises the following:
– All fruits
– All vegetables (except carrots, which he rarely eats, anyway)
– Chicken, turkey, and all other poultry in every shape and form
– Steak
– Pork
– Rice
– Beans
– All breads, except Italian bread
– Yogurt
– Most ice creams
– Milk
– Cheese
– All soups
– Sandwich meats (ham, bologna, etc.)

His average day goes like this (his diet LITERALLY consists of the following):
– Either a bagel or dry cereal for breakfast (because he hates milk, and he doesn’t choose the healthiest cereals, either)
– For lunch and dinner he eats either pizza or a hamburger (with no cheese, lettuce, tomato or anything) and a heaping helping of french fries, all loaded with enough ketchup to feed a third-world country

Back in the dorm room, he likes to snack on goldfish crackers, Doritos, popcorn, Twizzlers, chocolate chip cookies, Little Debbie snacks, ice cream sandwiches, Italian bread smothered in butter, pop tarts, pound cakes…and a bunch more garbage.

He also drinks NOTHING BUT SODA. In addition to the glass or two he has with lunch and dinner, he also goes through about 2 cans a day just sitting in the dorm.

Now, the trick is this: he’s an extremely stubborn, immature and pigheaded guy. How do I let him know that his eating habits are not only poor on the short term, but in the long term as well? All attempts to talk to him so far have failed; he takes them as a personal attack. What do I do?

You cannot change him and the more that you try, the more stubborn he will become. As you say, he sees no reason to change and he is happy with his dietary habits. He is also not trying to force you to change your way of living.

I commend you on your approach to your health and fitness. Your attitude in regard to yourself is healthy and mature. I commend you on that. If you find that it is impossible to sit by quietly while he eats, try to spend more time doing your research in the library or the common room at your dorm. Your other option would be to request a change in roommate, which should be a last resort if you want to remain friends.

The Three Ravens

There were three ravens sat on a tree,
Down a down, hey down, hey down
They were as black as they might be,
With a down.
The one of them said to his mate.
“O where shall we our breakfast take?”
With a down, derry, derry, derry down, down.

Down in yonder green field,
Down a down, hey down, hey down
There lies a knight slain e’en his shield,
With a down.
His hounds they lie down at his feet
So well they do their master keep.
With a down, derry, derry, derry down, down.

His hawks they fly so eagerly
Down a down, hey down, hey down
There is no fowl dare come him nigh,
With a down.
Down there comes a fallow doe
As great with child as she might go.
With a down, derry, derry, derry down, down.

She lifted up his bloody head,
Down a down, hey down, hey down
And kissed his wounds that were so red,
With a down.
She got him up upon her back
And carried him to earthen lake.
With a down, derry, derry, derry down, down.

She buried him before the prime,
Down a down, hey down, hey down
She was dead herself ere even-song time,
With a down.

God send every gentleman
Such hawks, such hounds, and such a leman,
With a down, derry, derry, derry down, down.

where can i find USDA certified prime beef?

Most USDA prime beef goes to restaurants. You could buy it from a restaurant or perhaps call a foodservice company but you might have to buy by the case.
A good specialty market or butcher should be able to special order from their supplier if the store doesn’t carry it. Call around and ask. It’s expensive but much better than USDA choice beef.

Roast Prime Rib of Beef with Horseradish Crust?

The recipe calls for dry white wine? Will any kind do? Also, it says, "Pour off some of the pan drippings and place pan on stove top over medium-high heat. Add the white wine and bring to a simmer, scraping the bits on the bottom of the pan. Reduce the wine by half.

What does Reduce mean and how do you do this?

Thank you!

Reduce means cook until half of the volume is gone.
