Local food procurement training recap

Contributed by: Sami Burington and Megan LeClair, Minnesota Department of EducationCover of USDA's "Procuring Local Foods for Child Nutrition Programs" guide.

Local foods truly can span the school meal tray. Forty-five school nutrition staff participating in the Minnesota Department of Education’s (MDE) Local Procurement workshop in October learned this and created action plans to serve even more local products in their school nutrition programs by using USDA’s Farm to Child Nutrition Programs Planning Guide and Farm to School Planning Toolkit. Participants also learned about procurement basics, where to find local products, and heard from an Extension educator and food safety specialist on what on-farm food safety practices to look for.

Students across Minnesota are demanding more local products too! Students in the Fridley School District prefer biting into local apples and specifically ask when the “good” apples are coming. Thanks to a Statewide Health Improvement Partnership (SHIP) grant, the district was able to conduct apple taste tests in which seventh and eighth grade students sampled different varieties of apples. At lunch now, students have requested to know what variety of apples they are being served and where the apples come from.

  1. Permainan Daring (Online Games) adalah jenis permainan komputer yang memanfaatkan jaringan komputer. Jaringan yang biasanya digunakan adalah jaringan internet dan yang sejenisnya serta selalu menggunakan teknologi yang ada saat ini, seperti modem dan koneksi kabel. Biasanya permainan daring disediakan sebagai tambahan layanan dari perusahaan penyedia jasa online, atau dapat diakses langsung melalui sistem yang disediakan dari perusahaan yang menyediakan permainan tersebut. Sebuah game online bisa dimainkan secara bersamaan dengan poker menggunakan computer yang terhubung ke dalam sebuah jaringan tertentu.

    Menurut Andrew Rollings dan Ernest Adams, permainan daring lebih tepat disebut sebagai sebuah teknologi, dibandingkan sebagai sebuah genre permainan; sebuah mekanisme untuk menghubungkan pemain bersama, dibandingkan pola tertentu dalam sebuah permainan (Rolling & Adams, 2006: 770)

    Menurut Webster Dictionary edisi tahun 1913 istilah game didefiniskan sebagai “A contest, physical or mental, according to certain rules, for amusement, recreation, or for winning a stake; as, a game of chance; games of skill; field games, etc.”

    Permainan daring terdiri dari banyak jenis, dari mulai permainan sederhana berbasis teks hingga permainan yang menggunakan grafik kompleks dan membentuk dunia virtual yang ditempati oleh banyak pemain sbobet sekaligus.

    Dalam permainan daring, ada dua unsur utama, yaitu server dan client. Server melakukan administrasi permainan dan menghubungkan client, sedangkan client adalah pengguna permainan yang memakai kemampuan server.

    Permainan daring bisa disebut sebagai bagian dari aktivitas poker online sosial karena pemain bisa saling berinteraksi secara virtual dan seringkali menciptakan komunitas maya.
