You have just bought a new thermometer to measure the temperature of a solution you prepare for clients. The solution needs to be a specific temperature and you assume that the new thermometer you bought gives an accurate measurement.

To ensure that you get a correct temperature measurement from your thermometer, you should get it calibrated.
Street foods comprise of a portion of the average Trini’s diet – shark and bake, doubles and roti to name a few examples… Street foods are not a local phenomenon though – in the U.S. common street foods include hot dogs, pretzels and tacos and in the U.K., kebabs, hamburgers and doughnuts are commonly sold in the streets.
There are several factors that have contributed to the rise in the number of street food vendors in many cities. Population growth has spurred the worldwide escalation of street food vendors. In addition there is a need for quick, ready-to-eat foods with less women having time to prepare meals at home. The increased workforce has also expanded the market for street foods. Street foods are also usually lower in cost compared to restaurant and fast-food meals, making them desirable to consumers. Lastly, street foods usually are cultural/ ethnic foods making them an attractive alternative to home-cooked meals.
