This automatically takes you out of the Edit feature and puts you back into the View mode so you can instantly see the changes you have made to the page. The Edit features are just like Word program where you can bold, underline, add hyperlinks (this is the globe with the chain link on it), etc. all from the top of the box you are editing in. iii. You can Add a Comment to any page at the bottom of the screen and it will name and date stamp your message for everyone to read. b. The Right-hand side of the wiki is how to move from section to section. i. Create a Page: you will create a name for the page and then you can start typing…just like it is a word document. Don’t forget to Save at the bottom of the screen when you are done typing. Select “Place this page in a folder” from the right-hand side of the screen and decide where to file the page you created. ii. Upload Files: you can upload any type of file by selecting the “Upload Files” button on the right-hand side of the screen.

You can select the box next to the file you uploaded and move it into any of the folders on the wiki. iii. Folders: All the folders are organized on the right-hand side of the wiki page. Click on the folder you want to read and you will be taken to a screen that shows the contents of that folder (these could include documents, pages, files, etc.). To get back to the FrontPage and list of folders, click on Home under the title of the wiki. If you want to add something to the folder, either click on New (to create a page or folder) or click on Upload Files to add a file to that folder.

Culinary Arts Culinary arts has transformed from blue collar to white collar within the last 10 years, especially with the advent of the Food Channel. Culinary skills, management and leadership are necessary in an ever growing industry. The food industry is one of the most sustainable industries due to people always needing to eat at restaurants, even when the economy is on a downturn (Food is a momentary escape from the daily grind). Food is festive and brings families and friends together and everyone is nice to the chef. Food artistry is a fast emerging trend where one can explore their inner artistic side. The Washington Restaurant Association employed more than 199,000 employees in 2008. The statesâ€™ 12,500 restaurants annually generate $11.9 billion to the state economy and contribute $635 million in state taxes. Washington restaurants are vital to our economy, community and careers.
