For my lab I decided to make the Best Egg Salad Recipe.

Below are the pictures I took from my the lab:

Circle Talk

    Circle Talk

One can learn through oral communication by meeting face to face. So, when our whole class had our talking circle, we got to share different stories about our past. The stories could be about where we came from, who we honor, our culture, our favour childhood memories and more. This really helped to learn about the people in our class because I got to picture what they were sharing by listening to how they told their story with their words and body. You can learn through oral communication because you learn better by experiencing the event. I will have a better chance re-telling their stories because I was involved in the experience. The aboriginal people would tell stories about their ancestors and these stories would be passed down for generations.  This exercise-built community in our room because our class came more together as a whole. We all got to tell stories and to learn a bit more about everyone in the class. We heard lots of different stories which made me think about how we are each unique and have different perspectives and ways of doing things.

Community Connection

What I Got Out Of The Interview:

I got to interview Sheri Mayervich. Sheri works on the set of Riverdale and she is the set location manager. I choose to interview Sheri because when I am older I want to do something that involves photography and films and work on a set. One thing that I learned and admired is how hard Sheri had to work because there was not that many women in the industry. I learned that to be successful with this job you have to work really well with lots of different people, you have to have good visualization skills, and you are always solving new problems. After interviewing Sheri I would still consider this for a job when I get older because I am passionate about photography and I think it would be cool to work in the film industry.

Interview With Sheri Mayervich:

Job Title: Location Manager of the television series ‘Riverdale’

 What obstacles have you faced to get where you are today?

So many obstacles!

I started in the business 20 years ago and when I moved up and became a location manager, I was one of the only female department heads on the show.

Working with good people, believing in yourself, your work and your work ethic will give you the confidence to get through the tough situations.

The film industry is a challenging, creative, always evolving, fast paced industry and every day seems to be an obstacle that I look forward to moving through.

What advice would you pass on to someone interested in what you are doing?

I am a member of the Directors Guild of Canada. They have a production assistant permit program as the entry position into the Guild. I would say if you are interested, join the program, take the courses and be prepared to work long hours and make sure that this is a good fit for you.

Positive attitude, friendly demeanor, hard work, patience and good intentions are a good start.

What are you passionate about your job?

I actually love my job. I like dealing with people. I like real time problem solving and the comradery of working creatively with a team on a project.

Everything we do starts off with an idea, words on a page and we make it come to life.

Would you be open to further contact from Riverside students and if so, how can someone contact you?

Yes, I am open to that.

Is it difficult to find your locations to film at?

My favourite part is reading the script and dreaming of where the scenes could take place and then your ideas coming to fruition.

It’s easy to find locations, and experience brings knowledge of where the best location would be to facilitate the scene. Due to it being so busy, with so many productions in the City, and all of them vying for the same locations, in the same windows of time makes it challenging. Sometimes you can have the right location but the logistics to facilitate the work at the location might not be possible.

What are the steps you have to take to get permission to film at the different locations?

  • Qualify the location and the municipality it is in to make sure it is a viable option for the director to see.
  • Photo reviews with production designer and producers to make sure you are on the right track.
  • Take the creative team to the location and scout to make sure it works for the script and logistically can accommodate the work to be filmed.
  • Send photos to our show runners at the network to get their approvals.
  • Facilitate logistics of each locations with property owners. We work closely with Warner Brothers legal and Risk Management working through contracts, insurance and making all of the monetary deals with the businesses and residents.
  • Approvals for the proposed work from the different Municipalities, Ministry of Highways, RCMP etc. and then once approved we get business licenses, highway permits, filming permits.
  • Then we show up and hope for the best

Consumable Waste

Consumable Waste 

How much of these foods come in different types of packaging? What kind of packaging materials are usually used (Styrofoam, cardboard, plastic, bags, boxes, etc.)?

I think that all of the food that we consume comes in some kind of packaging. When all food is shipped it comes in a shipping package.  Most things that I consume come in cardboard, plastic, tin, or aluminum foil lined plastic. For example, bananas come shipped in a cardboard box. Bananas do not have a package in the grocery store. The person buying the bananas makes the choice of putting the bananas in a plastic bag, reusable bag, or no bag at all.  Many foods come wrapped in a primary package and then have a secondary package protecting them or holding the multiple items together. For example, a granola bar has a primary package that holds the individual granola bar. The secondary box holds 6 granola bars. The secondary boxes are put into a larger shipping box. The shipping box is put on a wooden platform with a bunch of shipping boxes. The shipping boxes are wrapped with a plastic shrink wrap to keep them together.

Why do you think that all of these materials were chosen specifically for the products purchased?

These materials are chosen to protect the food and give them a longer shelf life.  The packaging protects the food from being dropped, crushed, or vibrated when transported. It protects the food from the environment. Environment effects are changing temperatures, humidity, and light. Packaging also protects the food from bugs, chemicals, and toxins. Packaging can protect the food from premature spoilage. Picking the right packaging also helps prevent theft and someone altering your product without you knowing. It is good to pick packaging that is easy for the consumer to use.

How is packaging both positive and negative for the consumer (the person using it)?

Packaging is positive because it helps keep the food fresher and protects against bacteria and food poisoning. Food is exposed to contaminants in the air and handling. Different kinds of packaging help make the food shelf life longer. Packaging is negative because it uses lots of materials and creates lots of waste. Packaging increases our carbon foot-print. Packaging makes the cost of the food more expensive, it takes up more room, and you need more trucks and gas to transport the food.

What happens to these packaging materials once we have eaten the food inside? Where is the packaging waste after one day? One year? One hundred years?

The packaging materials are recycled, reused, thrown in the garbage, or littered.  The garbage effects earth because different gases are released when the items are being broken down in the land fill. Packaging materials such as plastic, paper, tin, and glass take hundreds of years to decompose. Some items do not decompose at all. Some packaging pollutes the rivers and oceans.

What happens to the food waste?

Food waste is either put into the garbage or the green waste.  If it is put in the garbage it ends up in the land fill.  If it is put in the green waste it ends up being used as compost.  When food is broken down in the landfill it creates a powerful greenhouse gas called methane. When food is wasted all of the resources used to make it is wasted.

Provide 3-4 suggestions for ways that consumers can decrease the amount of waste we create.

When shopping, bring reusable bags to take your groceries home in.  You can use refillable water bottles or reusable containers. When you go shopping have a plan and only buy the necessities so that you are not throwing out food. You can also reuse some of the packaging materials.

 

Trip To California

Trip To California

It was time again for my annual road trip with my Dad to California. In June of 2019 my dad and I made the long trek to California in our black, Buick Enclave. Our first night of driving was awful because the rain was flooding the windshield and the hail was beating on the car.  The miserable weather made it difficult to see. We drove to Sacramento, California to visit with my dad’s aunt. We finally arrived and were happy to have the scorching sun soak into our skin. After our visit, we drove 6 hours down a long, straight highway to Disneyland. We stayed at a hotel right across the street from Disneyland. It had a gigantic pool that was 12 feet deep and the water was really warm.  We had lots of fun swimming in the pool. We stayed there for three weeks and went to Disneyland every day. The weather was always really nice and the park was not very busy. We went on lots of rides, watched parades, and watched the fireworks every night. We ate at the Galactic Grill which is my favourite restaurant at Disneyland. My favourite rides are Splash Mountain, Matterhorn, Space Mountain and Big Thunder Railroad. I like Splash Mountain because we would always get wet as we plummeted down the steep waterfall. They also played catchy music the whole ride. We would sing “Zip – a – dee – doo – dah, Zip – a dee -ay!”. The Matterhorn was lots of fun because you speed along the jerky track as you wind up and down the dark, scary mountain. On one part of the ride the ginormous Sasquatch jumps out and he really scares you. Space Mountain was a really thrilling and exhilarating ride because the whole thing is in the dark and you don’t know where you are going. It is a super, fast roller coaster ride. You can feel the wind in your face as you speed through the many turns and dips as the galaxy twirls around you. Big Thunder Railroad is a wild rollercoaster that takes you through the desert. My dad and I had a really fun time at Disneyland.  We then hopped back in the car to make the endless drive home. We stopped in San Francisco and went to Pier 39. We also drove over the Golden Gate Bridge. We could hardly see anything as we drove through the low lying, milky fog. It was a long, fun, and adventurous trip. I can’t wait to go on next years!
