Long Island Business Institute

The world of law- trials, grand jury hearings, defense attorneys, victims, and perpetrators- has always fascinated the public. Think about how many TV shows, books, and movies featuring lawyers and trials have become best sellers and received top ratings. Today, we are surrounded by real life legal battles and constant news stories relating to sensational trials.

Who is the person responsible for recording these proceedings and producing a transcript? The answer is a Court Reporter. The abundance of news organizations, cable stations, and the Internet has created an enormous demand for accurate transcripts delivered in a timely fashion.

Expert Career Training on L.I.

Syosset, New York – The Culinary Academy of Long Island offers several career programs, including Professional Cooking, Commercial Cooking, Professional Pastry and Baking, and Hotel and Restaurant Management.

The programs are taught in exciting, hands-on learning environments by the Culinary Academy of Long Island’s well-respected, talented and experienced faculty. The school prides itself on the positive relationship between students, faculty, and the administration. With classes averaging only 15-20 students, teachers are able to address individual student questions and more directly respond to the needs of each student.

Learning To Lunch

Lunchtime in schools across the Island rings a special bell in the ears—and stomachs—of hungry students. Socializing and relaxing are main objectives when this much needed break ensues. But health?

Well, some schools on Long Island are trying to follow the guidelines laid out by the USDA and nix the nasty habit of unhealthy eating that starts with childhood meals. Port Washington Union Free School District, according to its website, is introducing students to “tasty and wholesome foods, [the] best food preparation practices, and providing opportunities for nutrition education.” Port Washington also has committees that meet regularly to discuss the quality of food being served in the schools. East Islip School District has posted a complete nutritional profile on its website for the food served in its schools. Although some of the food is not completely nutritionally sound, this public profile, along with the weekly posted school lunch menu, can help parents help their kids plan healthy lunches for the week by choosing the healthiest options.

Room To Grow

September is just around the corner, and incoming college freshmen around the nation are anxious about the much-anticipated dorm move in, and more importantly, meeting their first college roommates. To these students, I give one major piece of advice, just one: Do NOT, I repeat, do NOT assume you’ll be friends with your roommate. This is, perhaps, the biggest mistake people make when starting college and moving into their dorms.

Back To Cool

Back to school. As summer dwindles, the thought on most students’ and parents’ minds is returning to the wonderful institution that is school. While the thoughts of books, supplies, and the like occupy the minds of many, fashion also becomes an important factor. And in this economy it should be. Many parents struggle to satisfy their children’s needs to look trendy while staying within budget. But what exactly is trendy these days? According to Debbie Franzese, owner of Rockville Centre’s House of Style, “The fall season’s biggest trends are leggings, especially red ones, motorcycle jackets, and skinny jeans.” It doesn’t end there, though. Because going back to school means going back to the scrutiny of classmates, we offer this guide of what (and what not) to wear this year.
