After reading the article make a summary of no more than 400 words. To do an effective summary, you must make a choice on what information you include and which you leave out, so that you don’t exceed the word limit.
Begin by stating what is the main hypothesis/claim of the article and discuss the facts and arguments presented to support the main hypothesis.
Then discuss your own thoughts on the perspective for the future of negative interest rates. Are you in favor of this policy? Give a brief justification for your opinion (use mostly economic arguments and references). Your discussion should be between 300 and 500 words.
Tips for writing a Summary
- Start by looking at the text overall structure.
- Read the introduction for the main claim and the conclusion to see what was the article’s contribution to understanding the main claim or hypothesis.
- Find points supporting the main claim. The first sentence is typically enough to get the general meaning of a paragraph.
An effective summary:
- Conveys the basic point of the text in a short and easy to understand format.
- Only includes content from the original text
- Does not include quotes or citations
- Does not include your opinion.
current day the ration packs are a little bit different. Most packs are packaged in tough plastic instead of cardboard boxes. The Navy Seals of today have a single blend of plant based nutrients, fats, probiotics, proteins and carbohydrates. The plants in the blend are wheatgrass, cacao, alfalfa, chlorella and spirulina; for the fats side of things they used sunflower, algae, macadamia, chia seed and coconut. For the probiotics they used chicory root, green banana, acacia fiber, psyllium husk and ten probiotic strands. To supply them with carbohydrates they used, tapioca and sweet potato. As for the proteins in the blend they used peas, collagen, whey and pumpkin. For this one single drink it will supply the seals with 400 calories and 27 grams of protein. On the other hand of things with packaged food they had the Sure-Pak MRE which goes back to packaged food. The Sure-Pak MRE provides the soldiers about 1,000-1,250 calories which I believe is not enough to get them through the heat and rough terrain of the Middle East. It contains a meat dish, a side along the lines of beans, a dessert, crackers, peanut butter spread, peanut butter spread, beverage powder, salt/pepper, moist towelettes, napkins, coffee powder, creamer, sugar and a water based heater. For a bit different type of MRE the “Wise Emergency food kit” is a civilian food kit of freeze dried food and it’s used in emergency survival situations; it comes in a large watertight bucket so your food will not get destroyed in emergency situations. A completely different approach on food supply for the soldiers is the “ER Bar.” The ER Bar is a 24,000 calorie food bar used in emergencies only, it provides a 72 hour food supply for a single bar. You are permitted and warned to eat 2 bars per day and there are 6 bars in a pack. They have a 5 year shelf life so you don’t have to really worry about expiration. This really answers the part of is the food enough to support the soldiers over seas and the answer is yes. The food rations of WWI are absolutely nothing compared to what they are today. The food of today can supply up to 24,000 calories and a 72 hour food supply to a soldier where the diet of a WWI soldier was around 3,000. I believe that we can get the soldiers the nutrients they need to fight but also bring some flavor into their food; most of the food they eat does not have a great taste whatsoever but provides them with the nutrients they need. Since the cost of a MRE in today’s time is about 8.00 for the government >GET ANSWER
