This page was developed to help my students surf the Internet and to pick up assignments and projects during the semester. Students in my undergraduate courses, at John Jay College of Criminal Justice should consult this page periodically for information and references.
I have also registered a commercial web site called: http://www.iwantchinesefood.com. It is a site dedicated to Chinese cooking and recipes. I hope you will visit the site and use it as well.
