HACCP : a practical approach by Sara Mortimore( )

39 editions published between 1994 and 2013 in English and held by 879 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the 1994 publication of HACCP: A practical approach, many changes have occurred in the world of food safety. A number of driving forces have converged, focusing more attention on the proper management of food safety. These forces have prompted a revision and expansion of HACCP: A practical approach. Fortunately, the authors have been able to come forth with this timely revision of their most useful and excellent work. Unquestionably, the most significant driving force for increased attention to food safety has been the continued surge in new food borne pathogens and the related illness outbreaks. Micro-organisms such as Salmonella typhimurium OTl04, antibiotic-resistant Campylobacter jejuni, Cryptosporidium parvum and Cyclospora cayeta nensis were practically unknown in foods before 1994. However, most important in this regard has been the surge in major outbreaks of illness caused by Escherichia coli 0157:H7 around the world. While it was originally found to be associated with dairy cattle, the ecological range of this pathogen is expanding. It is now a more frequent contaminant of raw animal foods and raw produce. The surge in new foodborne pathogens and illnesses has led to unprecedented media attention to the safety of the global food supply. As a result, consumers are more aware of the potential prob lems and are demanding safer foods. Government regulatory agen cies in many countries have responded by developing regulations for food safety. Many of these regulations require that the HACCP system of food safety be used in the production of food

Dance : a very social history( Book )

17 editions published between 1986 and 1987 in English and Undetermined and held by 695 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Twirling figures, gloved hands clasped, the strains of the violin..." These words from the first essay in this delightful book could be describing an eighteenth-century minuet performed by aristocratic guests at a Versailles ball, a nineteenth-century cotillion of white-gowned debutantes in new York, or a stylish moment created on the silver screen by Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. The steps and the music and the dresses may vary, but the exciting and elegant sight of society enjoying itself on the dance floor has persisted through the ages. In this book, published to coincide with an exhibition held at the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art under the direction of Diana Vreeland, four authors look at the subject of social dancing from four different points of view. Carol McD. Wallace surveys the great balls and dancing parties of Europe, England, and America from the eighteenth century to the present, while Don McDonagh describes the dance steps themselves, from the early basse danze of Italy to the twist of modern-day America. Jean Druesedow, associate curator in charge of the Costume Institute, discusses the evolution of the ball gown and other costumes designed for dancing, and Laurence Libin, curator of musical instruments, assisted by Constance Old, analyzes the way in which dance has been depicted in works of art through the centuries. Illustrated with paintings, works of decorative art, contemporary prints and photographs, these lively essays re-create the rhythmic energy, the social proprieties, the colorful costumes and anecdotes of dances and dancers past and present. -- from dust jacket

All dressed in white : the irresistible rise of the American wedding by Carol Wallace( Book )

3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 567 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Everybody loves a wedding, and in All Dressed in White, Carol McD. Wallace celebrates the delicious history and the eternal allure of our favorite rite of passage. In the past 150 years the wedding has gone from discreet private ceremony to elaborate public event, yet the fundamentals remain the same - weddings are the only social events in America where matters of money, sex, and class are brought to the fore. The growth of the middle class and the development of the popular media play a role in Wallace's tale, as does the eternal vision of The White Dress in its metamorphosis from gown to costume."--Jacket
