Welcome to good burger home of the good burger can I take your order? I hated saying those words every time someone entered Mr. Good Burger. It must have been the worse job anyone could have. I greeted the customers as they each placed their order. I couldn’t stop starring at my hand watch for closing time. “An hour and a half that’s a long time to go” I said to myself. Every time I looked down time only seem to be going slower. There was never anything exciting about Mr. Good Burger , except for maybe the part where your friends come in but even than it wasn’t anything special it seem more embarrassing than anything else. Kids ran around the playground, Parents watched and teenagers gossiped. There wasn’t anything other to do than to eardrop trying to bypass time until closing. I began to get lost in the gossip of the students seating closest to me. “WHAT IS A MATTER WITH YOU?” I jump in reaction of the loud scream quickly turning to see where it was coming from. Unable to find the source I began to search the place with my eyes and notice papers flying all over the outside of Mr. Good Burger parking lot. I was so invested in the drama that I didn’t notice it was time to close up and go home. Everyone quickly ran outside to witness the commotion. Trash cans were tipped over papers were thrown everywhere. My face turned into confusion not able to recognize the strange faces causing all of this. Until it hit me, the crazy girl from the forbidden house down the street has escaped. As, kids it was an old tale of the town that if you ever went near that home your body will just disappeared. They said she will eat you alive so that you felt every painful bite.
The street lights began to bust one by one leaving the town in complete darkness. Her eyes glowed in a bloody red and bleached white foam surrounded her mouth. My eyes shocked with fear in witness to something so unnatural. We all scattered like roaches after turning on the kitchen light for a midnight bite. Some of us ran to our cars and some ran back into Mr. Good Burger. I locked the doors behind us and began to dial for help but soon realize it was very man for themselves. Goosebumps crawled my body with a feeling I never felt. I began trying to gather my thoughts and immediately knew if any of us was going to make it out a live we had to do more than just hide here in fear. I took a deep breath and said “Okay, I’m going to need your help if we plan on surviving this invasion of Zombies. “That’s nonsense there is no such thing as zombies. Just call the police and have that crazy animal contained.” Mr. Dixon said. “I have tried that but the towers are down.” I replied. The children began to whine and my head began to spin in 1,000 and one thoughts. Everyone began to speak all at once, people became angry and upset. “Shut Up!” I shouted. I must have shouted too loud because the sound of scared souls began to bang the window in need of our assistant for a safe shelter, so I thought. Quickly, grabbing a flash light I went to unlock the door to let them in. As, I got closer I notice something strange in their eyes glowed in a bloody red and bleached white foam covered their mouth. I turn to look at Mr. Dixon and said “It’s too late she has gotten to them.” I grasped for air and quickly ran from the entrance. I knew then, the town of Charleston was in major trouble. This wasn’t a horror movie that you saw in theaters, it was the real thing. I could hear the zombies trying to make away in. They growled in hunger fining for the taste of flesh. I walked to the back looking for things to help us fight them off. Suddenly, everything became quite, sweat dipped my forehead and the seconds ticking on my hand watch got louder. A screams of torcher signaled me to run and hide for the lives of other where been taken with no remorse. I hided quietly and bottle up my fear. Finally given me enough strength to go out and check the place out. Coming around the corner the strong smell of blood hit my nose with a pain. My body shriveled and I could feel my heart stop as I viewed the dead bodies lying on the bright blue and yellow tile floor. It was still very dark and I could barely move around stepping over all the blood and intestines but I had to do more than just hide in fear. I unlocked the doors and began to run towards the town’s police station. Once I was there I notice it seemed empty. I slowly opened the front door and stepped in quietly to see if I saw anyone that could help but the zombies had taken all the lives of Charleston but mines. I stood there for a second in deep thought of WHY?? I could feel strange eyes crawl my body, unable to completely open my eyes for a clear view I quickly began trying to gain caution. A deep painful stabbing of my shoulder assured me I was in the last moments of my life. Tears began to fall down my cheeks and my heart broke in pieces. I closed my shut my eyes tightly not wanting to witness the painful death of being eaten alive. My mind went blank and soon I began to see a glowing light like the way people die in most movies. I convinced myself there wasn’t anything to do but follow the light as shown in most movies. I heard the voice of a man somewhat distance from me “Excuse Me, Miss are you alright?” Slowly cracking my eyes I sighed in relief that maybe it wasn’t my time to go, but the light only got brighter. I heard the door of a car opening and I immediately thought it was over and I was safe. I jumped up and hugged the man tightly “thank you thank you so much I thought I was dead for sure” I said as I hugged him but the horror wasn’t over. I felt a lifeless pain run down my veins, my eyes blinded and my soul scream in terror. My body lay on the ground, No heartbeat, No expanding of my lungs, No blood ran though my veins. I laid there like there was no importance to my human life. I was history and with those animals so was the world.

Overcoming Internal Barriers

...Burger King – Are They The True Leader of the Fast Food Industry? Barriers to success exist for every company regardless of how big or small they are. How a company strategizes for and responds to these barriers will determine the positioning of the company within the industry and its overall existence. To indentify potential barriers, a company must first formulate its key strategies for growth. A company can then examine itself internally and externally to identify barriers that may inhibit the realization of these key goals. For example, a company must be aware of their competition’s strengths and weaknesses as well as their strategic visions. Seemingly, the company and competition have the same target audience so it’s also vital to understand what the demand of the marketplace is and how these expectations will be met. An internal examination of personnel competencies and realistic production expectancies will be critical in determining if the company can meets its expectations. While a multitude of barriers exist that inhibit success, the following four barriers can be more common than not and significantly impact a company’s ability to adopt innovative practices and processes: 1. Lack of Collaboration – When the varying departments of a company act independently without a common goal, progress is halted. While a particular department may perform exceptionally in their given function, if their efforts are not complimenting other areas,......

...Our philosophy was to stick within their own four walls and have the food do the talking for us.” (QSR Magazine, 8/2011). What sets Five Guys apart from other fast-food chains is the small menu they had of just hamburgers and fries and the other fast-food chains had all kinds of food on their menus from chicken to salads. They decided to do just the hamburgers and fries and nothing else. “Very early the Murrells realized that in order to compete with the fast-food chains, Five Guys would have to concentrate on food.” (Boone & Kuntz, p. 78). “ And for 16 years, that's how the Murrell family ran Five Guys, overseeing their small cluster of stores and personally making sure everything went according to plan.” (QSR Magazine, 8/2011). Mr. and Mrs. Murrell came up with the idea of a small business of just selling hamburgers and fries when the two oldest sons decided they were not going to college.

...News science and environment August 5 , 2013 The world's first lab-grown burger has been cooked and eaten at a news conference in London. Scientists took cells from a cow and, at an institute in the Netherlands, turned them into strips of muscle that they combined to make a patty. One food expert said it was "close to meat, but not that juicy" and another said it tasted like a real burger. Researchers say the technology could be a sustainable way of meeting what they say is a growing demand for meat. The burger was cooked by chef Richard McGeown, from Cornwall, and tasted by food critics Hanni Ruetzler and Josh Schonwald. Continue reading the main story Analysis image of Pallab Ghosh Pallab Ghosh Science correspondent, BBC News The world's population is continuing to increase and an ever greater proportion want to eat meat. To meet that demand farmers will need to use more energy, water and land - and the consequent increase in greenhouse gas emission will be substantial. The plan for lab-grown burgers has won support from some animal welfare and vegetarian groups, who feel it addresses their concerns about animal suffering. But critics say technological fixes, whether it is lab-grown meat or GM crops address the symptoms rather than the causes of world hunger. What is needed, they say, are policies that enable more farmers to produce more food more efficiently and to distribute it more equitably. And then of course there is the taste. Even......

...Entrepreneurial Leadership BUS508 25 July 2013 Determine how Five Guys’ philosophy sets it apart from other fast-food chains. “Do you want to flip burgers your whole life!” How many times has a parent said this? Even though this is usually said out of sarcasm this line of work has been very good for the Murrells. The founder and owner of Five Guys Burgers and Fries Jerry Murrell started with a business plan of keeping their business limited and simple and sticking by his philosophy of providing a quality product at a reasonable price in a clean environment. Five guys spends the most out of its competers to product a quality product. When Jerry Murrell began franchising he was just a small burger operation with an almost cultish following in Northern Virginia. Today, the business is, by some, estimated heading in the direction of the $1 billion in value mark. Analyze the original values of the start-up company and how it remains strong today. During the early years the Murrells’ worked long and hard to prefect their product. And to this day Five Guys serves up made-to-order burgers with beef that’s never frozen and absurdly large servings of hand-cut fries. Murrell stated that each topping was a family decision and something that was taken very serious. Having accomplished creating a successful product the Murrells now focus on maintaining this quality by paying attention to detail. One way that the Murrells ensure that the product quality is maintained is by......

Case Study of Great Eastern Life Vietnam

Gradually, a queue of foreign fast food jumbos have landed onto Vietnam and dominated the market with the everyday-seen names like KFC, Lotteria, Jollibee…They have helped shape up fast food culture with western style in the country that has been globally emerging at an amazing speed . A critical question is then raised that why we do not have pure Vietnamese fast food mode for Vietnamese people. Later, some Vietnamese brand names were with great effort introduced like Pho 24, Kinh Do Bakery, Wrap and Roll… However, insiders do not consider these names typical fast food vein. Mr. Truong Han Lam, Marketing Director of Lotteria commented that Kinh Do Bakery business was not a fast food model. Mr. Ly Qui Trung –Founder of Pho 24- added that the existing Vietnamese names were following a quick service mode, not fast food form. Owner of Wrap and Roll, Ms Kim Oanh, admitted that hers was a restaurant form, not fast food (”KFC, Lotteria, Jollibee,” 2012). In order to answer the question if there are any real Vietnamese fast food models, a definition of fast food needs being made clear. According to Oxford dictionary, fast food is an “easily prepared processed food served in snack bars and restaurants as a quick meal or to be taken away” (Fast food, 2013).

...Mitchell v. Lovington Good Samaritan Ctr., Inc. 555 P.2d 696 (N.M. 1976) Issue: What constitutes misconduct under New Mexico Statutes Annotated; whether Mitchell committed actions which constituted misconduct under N.M. Stat. Ann.§ 59-9-5(b) (West 1953). Holding: Misconduct is not defined by the Unemployment Compensation Law within the New Mexico Statutes Annotated; however, the Wisconsin Supreme Court case Boynton Cab Co. v. Neubeck, 237 Wis. 249, 259-60, 296 N.W. 636, 640 (Wis.1941) formulated a definition which the Supreme Court of New Mexico adopted. This law states misconducted occurs with any of the following: disregards the standard of behavior, to show an intentional and substantial disregard of the employer’s interest, and disregard of the employer’s duties. Such actions as inefficiency, unsatisfactory conduct are not to be deemed as misconduct. (ld.) Analysis: With the definition of misconduct being adopted by the courts Mrs. Mitchell’s acts of name calling (terms such as birdbrain and “white” girl), improper attire (wearing non uniform pants), and insubordination (refusing job assignments and singing after being told to stop) on multiple occasions shows sufficient misconduct. The incidents as a whole show a consistent disregard for the center and Mrs. Mitchell’s co-workers. Decision: Therefore, as a result it is clear that Mrs. Mitchell committed various forms of misconduct over a three month period on her own accord with complete......
