The Golden Arches ® Exposed!

On the blog dy/dan, there was a recent discussion about the shape of a bridge.  One commenter joked about the Golden Arches of McDonald’s as being the most famous parabolas in America.  As I am teaching quadratic modeling in College Algebra right now, I though I would find an equation for these parabolas.  The problem is that the Golden Arches are not parabolas.

To find the equation, I scanned the Golden Arches from a placemat that I found at McDonald’s tonight.  I took the scanned picture and imported it into GeoGebra.  I picked five points on the outside of one arch, and five points inside of the arch.  The picture is below.

Putin,Comey and Third-Party Candidates 2016 US Election

The number of votes Stein got in Michigan and Wisconsin exceeded the gap between Clinton and Trump in those states.  “We are scholars of politics and the presidency, but you don’t need to be an expert to know that a shift or addition of just a few thousand votes in one or two key states can determine the outcome of a presidential election. In other words, a handful of voters in the right place at the right time can truly change the course of American history. “

statements of Republican nominee Donald Trump at ClimateProgress. He has called global warming a hoax, denied the reality of California’s devastating drought, promised he would kill all domestic climate-related regulations (like the EPA’s Clean Power Plan), and vowed “We’re going to cancel the Paris climate agreement” — humanity’s last best chance to avoid catastrophic climate change lasting centuries.

Watermelon

Food historians believe that African slaves helped introduce the watermelon, now the most consumed melon in the US. The fruit eventually became a major symbol in the iconography of racism in the United States through the “watermelon stereotype”. In various images, the fruit was used to paint African Americans as a simple-minded people who were happy when provided watermelon and a little rest.

How To Make Watermelon Seed Tea

Ingredients

  • 30-40 watermelon seeds, fresh or dried
  • water

Instructions

  1. Crush 4 tablespoons of fresh watermelon seeds using a mortar and pestle, or grind them up in a food processor.
  2. Cook for 10 minutes in two litres of water over high heat.
  3. Drink the entire two litres of tea over a period of two days for full effect.

This tea is especially good for those with digestive issues, or those who are prone to urinary tract infections. So instead of opting for seedless watermelons – which are less flavourful than watermelons with seeds and are part of a relatively new strain of watermelon mass-produced for consumers – or spitting out the seeds and throwing them away, the next time you eat watermelon, consider saving the seeds to roast or brew in a tea. Your body will ultimately thank you for providing it with such a nutritious snack or beverage.Watermelon-eathealthylivefit_com
