Chosen social enterprise: “Zero Waste for Bulgarian Restaurants”
Chosen First Project of the social enterprise: “How can Honu Hawaiian BBQ become a Zero Waste Restaurant”
Chosen country of implementation: Bulgaria
The first project of the organization is the transformation of the existing restaurant “Honu Hawaiian BBQ” (https://www.facebook.com/honubbq/) into a Zero Waste Restaurant. This restaurant is located in Sofia, Bulgaria. It is owned by close friends of mine and my role as a social entrepreneur will be to help them become an outstanding Zero Waste Restaurant.
Analyze the problem which the enterprise is trying to solve and the concepts and ideas of social entrepreneurship that it uses or will use. Provide a plan or recommendations how “Zero Waste for Bulgarian Restaurants” could be developed or improved to accomplish its mission. Please make sure to include my role as a socially responsible leader in the implementation of this.
he aim of this experiment was to measure the response times on the string of letters that were shown to the participants on a computer screen. The task of the participants was to decide whether the string of letters were words or non-words. The hypothesis of the experiment was that the response time in the lexical decision task would be significantly faster for target words related to the prime than for target words unrelated to the prime. The experimental design was repeated measures, where participants responded to all the stimuli that were propounded. Participants were presented with a string of words related to the prime, words unrelated to the prime, non-word created from a word related to the prime and a non-word created from a word unrelated to the prime. The findings of the experiment showed that participants responded faster when the letter strings were related words rather than unrelated words. This is because related words are closely associated in implicit memory, therefore the response times of the participants will be faster in recognising the words. Explanations for the results of the experiment will be discussed further in the report. Introduction Priming is an effect on implicit memory in which the reaction time of a response to a stimulus is faster due to having previous experience of the stimulus. For example, individuals can recognise a word faster if it is paired with a related word. For example, “table” and “chair” and are slower at recognising words if they are unrelated. For example, “nurse” and “butter” (Refer to appendix A). In the study of Meyer and Schvaneveldt (1971) we refer to semantic priming, where semantic refers to the logic and language individuals store in their implicit memory. Meyer and Schvaneveldt (1971) suggested that the response times were faster when the string of words were related because a part of the memory is activated in which the retrieval of words from semantic memory is faster. Associative priming and the lexical decision task is an extension of the study by Meyer and Schvaneveldt (1971). In their experiment they hypothesized that recognition of a word is faster when it is associated with its prime. In their experiment they presented 12 participants with two strings of letters, one above the other. Their task was to press the ‘yes’ key if the t>
