    1. But this is also about courage. We need businesses to show leadership and face the scale of the issue. That is why as Champions 12.3 we are calling on businesses to do three things

      He is trying to find ways to have people involved in what he is doing he does not just want to write about it he wants us as people to also help reduce food waster all around the world this is where he uses his connections and his ways to get to people's feeling to help strengthen his argument.

    2. In other words, reducing waste offers real business opportunities. So, we need to put food waste on the boardroom agenda.

      So this is Lewis giving the business side of things and how this can make people money by getting involved in reducing food waste. Throughout the entire article he finds ways to shed different types of light almost like pros and cons of this topic.

    3. There are other reasons too why food waste needs to be addressed. Take climate change. Food waste today is responsible for around 8 per cent of global greenhouse gas emissions

      Lewis also relates the issue he is speaking on to other big issues that are affecting the world and makes connections. This is because these two thing are hurting the world. He is trying to not only pull people in thats interested in food waste but also about climate change and how it is affecting us and our environment.

    4. By any standard, these are huge numbers. This level of waste is clearly not acceptable. The case for action becomes even stronger when we consider that 1 in 9 people are malnourished worldwide.

      Lewis he gives us very big numbers and he givings us feelings and the rhetorical device pathos. Which the feelings and tugging on people heartstrings because people are out here lacking nutrients yet there is so much food wasted in the world and these people are getting anything.

    5. very year a third of the world’s food is wasted. In terms of weight, it adds up to around 1.3bn tonnes. In the UK alone, we waste over 10m tonnes of food in a year.

      Throughout this article Lewis, he makes very valid points and he has been backing them up with evidence he is trying to inform us of how much food we waste In only one part of the world and there is so more places and we waste so much food just because which is terrible.

    1. Plastic packaging is used in the food supply chain because it supports the safe distribution of food over long distances and minimises food waste by keeping food fresh for longer.

      This is how we are able to keep food frozen and it not go bad but after a while it does become freer burnt. Its proven fact that fresh food in plastic packaging makes food last longer and stay fresh which also would help prevent the wasting of food.

    2. Many people bemoan the large amount of packaging that supermarkets use, particularly for fruit and vegetables, most of which have their own natural protection. Nonetheless, a major reason that supermarkets use so much packaging is to protect food and prevent waste—particularly with fresh food. Removing plastic entirely from our food supply may not be the best solution when it comes to protecting the environment and conserving valuable resources.

      This was exactly what I was saying in one of my comments. Manoj is giving us facts on this situations and trying to sheds light on the fact that all plastic in the food industry is bad because it is more needed for things like fresh food. I like How she gives different views and not just in one certain place or state but globally

    3. There has been a surge in awareness of the damage that plastic pollution does to our planet in recent years. It has spurred a number of campaigns to remove single-use plastics from our daily lives. This extends to food packaging, with a Waitrose supermarket in the city of Oxford recently launching a package-free trial.

      Looking from how this very first paragraph starts off the Manoj was trying to inform us of how bad plastic has been infecting our world and trying to get us to understand the that not all plastic is bad we need to learn how to properly dispose of our plastic waste and she is speaking to everyone that uses plastic that is her audience.

    4. Removing plastic entirely from our food supply may not be the best solution when it comes to protecting the environment and conserving valuable resources."

      I think that this is correct i dont think completely removing plastic would not be good for our food environment but plastic is not good for our environment I feel as though we should be trying to make it better for everyone but also make sure plastic is only used in the right ways

    1. Most recently, technology has been named one of the culprits.

      I didn't even know that they were using technology like that back in the 50s but that sane things that was affecting us back then still affects us till this day which is sad because it might be even worse than it was back then.

    2. Students may not have had sufficient engagement of this sort with text because the acontextual, ahistorical test-gen-erated passages did not invite rhetorical reading.

      This is very true because its almost boring read one that will put you to sleep and they expect you interpret it deeply and understand everything just because you read the text.

    3. abdication

      I did not know what this word mean and it means that the "failure to fulfill a task or duty". They way they have failure and poor all over this article is sad because some high schoolers know how to read deeply and why can't these professors at these universities help them learn how to read deeply instead of categorizing them.

    4. This often manifests itself in teaching only surface-level reading strategies in K–12 such as skimming and reading for the gist, and in cries of, “They should know this stuff before they get here!” at the university level

      This is crazy nobody should have to know things on university level when they are just getting out high school they have those high expectations for 17 year olds when the teachers have do their job in high school.

    5. ithout explicit attention to reading and the relation-ship between reading and writing, students will not have strategies for making sense of new or difficult texts, arguments, images, and ideas they encounter.

      I agree with this statement completely because reading and writing in an effective way takes time and practice so they are going to need a lot of help and attention to learn how to do this effectively.

    6. Employers want to hire people who can communicate effectively, and despite our culture’s recent celebration of all things STEM, many employers continue to vocalize the importance of effective communication skills.

      I can understand why but aren't jobs supposed to help with that aspect to help you communicate more effectively. In certain workforce they hire teenagers and teenagers aren't always the most effective communicator so the managers and supervisor have to help them communicate more effectively.

    7. Unfortunately, there is still a great deal of work to be done since recent studies such as The Citation Project, a multi-institu-tional, and empirical research project show that students’ reading abilities are largely underdeveloped

      I agree with this completely that there are so many bases of writing and reading that we have still not discovered kind of like the ocean we only know surface level things but there is so much more to see and read about.

    8. As they get a little older, students begin to develop an aware-ness of genres or types of text, which, like the study of phonics, is also further reinforced by a concurrent focus on reading and writ-ing.

      So as the future goes on we are evolving and learning how to teach reading and writing in a better way than before. They do better focusing on these aspects while we get higher into learning.

    9. his problematic separation of the connected practices of read-ing and writing is no longer an issue in students’ early school-ing, where they are taught reading and writing simultaneously.

      I think that it is still a problem till this day but it has gotten better since the 1950s. But they teach english which is reading and writing at the same time which is a good thing.
