Learning the Lingo from" Guide to Starbucks Beverages" -

"I will have a grande, quad, ristretto, nonfat, dry cappuccino, please!" -

What is a ristretto? How can a cappuchino be dry?

Grande: Starbucks second-largest beverage size, 16 fl oz.
Quad: Four shots of espresso in a drink
Ristretto: A short pull of espresso, capturing only the sweetest part
Dry: More foam, less milk
Cappuccino: A drink made with espresso and equal parts steamed milk and thick foam. It has a stronger espresso flavor than a latte.

And what does your drink say about you?
The old saying is "You are what you eat." But at Starbucks, we think what you drink says more about who you are. Triple, grande, decaf latte people aren't the same as tall, iced caramel macchiato drinkers.
There are four ways to customize your order: choose your order, choose your espresso, choose your milk, and choose other modifiers.
Then, you have the heart of your coffee drink-the espresso inside:

Finally, we got the chess table-game! Are we ready for the Chess Club? Yes, we are! Guess, what is next? Gaming in the LRC. Bringing in the intellectual games in the technical school! Hmm, who will be the campus champion? And what about regional or district championship? Interesting that students get more excited with the traditional board game then with the Digital Chess Game on the computer. Probably because of the social interaction and entertaining threw communication. Well, I hope that gaming will drew more students and faculty to use the LRC.

"Keep my breath,
We are playing chess!"

"The Scarecrow" by Michael Connelly

The new book titles "The Scarecrow" by Michael Connelly will be released on May 26, 2009 in United States. He is an excellent story teller, and he knows the forensics science in criminal justice procedures. You simply cannot put his books down.

I want to thank our student, Edward Farah, for the great gesture, the gift of set of books written by Michael Connelly. In general, it is great that our students , faculty, and staff are in for the Michael Connelly's books for the LRC Summer Reading outreach program. It is a good start!

Editorial Reviews
"Connelly succeeds, again, at creating a first-rate crime novel--fast-paced and dizzying....Connelly, once again, has hit a home run." (Denver Post Robin Vidimos )
"This Bosch adventure is a great read that can't be put down. Harry's getting on in years but is still a great detective." (San Jose Mercury News John Orr )
"Michael Connelly is a hard-boiled pro. His novels are remarkable for their authentic detailing of police procedures." (USA Today Carol Memmott )
"If Bosch is our detective, Connelly is our laureate, proving again that popular fiction at its also literature." (Los Angeles Times Donna Rifkind)

Product Description
Forced out of the Los Angeles Times amid the latest budget cuts, newspaperman Jack McEvoy decides to go out with a bang, using his final days at the paper to write the definitive murder story of his career. He focuses on Alonzo Winslow, a 16-year-old drug dealer in jail after confessing to a brutal murder. But as he delves into the story, Jack realizes that Winslow's so-called confession is bogus. The kid might actually be innocent. Jack is soon running with his biggest story since The Poet made his career years ago. He is tracking a killer who operates completely below police radar--and with perfect knowledge of any move against him. Including Jack's.

Summer Reading Gains Momentum

For students starting college, June is the time to open the book their college has asked them to finish before classes start.

Nationwide, hundreds of colleges and universities, large and small, public and private, assign first-year students to read a book over the summer, hoping to create a sense of community and engage students intellectually.

The range of books colleges use is enormous, covering fiction and nonfiction: readable, cheap, short and engaging. Often, it is a national best seller with an aspect of some multicultural encounter.

For example, at the University of Florida were distributed 7,000 copies of Tracy Kidder's book "Mountains Beyond Mountains" The Quest of Dr. Paul Farmer, A Man Who Would Cure the World," a story about a single-minded doctor's fight against multidrug - resistant tuberculosis in Haiti, Peru, Cuba, and Russia. The author will speak at campus and students gain their summer reading momentum.

At ITT Teh Miami, we are talking about Michael Connelly's books on criminal justice aspect. Michael Connelly is a Floridian, and he is President of the mystery fiction literature association.
It will be great to invite Mr. Connelly to speak on campus to provide our first-year class with a common intellectual base, and promote certain values about leadership, ethics and service
