Welcome to Ruby Tuesday 2
Ruby Tuesday is a casual dining restaurant that I often visit with my family. On most occasions I am overwhelmed with the menu items. I tend to take long at ordering my food due to indecisiveness. The things that I noticed to be Ruby Tuesday’s strengths are the quality of customer service they offer and the salad bar option. Although the restaurant is one of my favorite I think that the lighting could be better and the pricing on the food can be lower. Overall Ruby Tuesday is a great restaurant as they are able to stand out by including the salad bar in casual dining.
As most restaurants do Ruby Tuesday is no different when it comes to making the menu editable. I love to try different foods when I go out with my family and it tends to be harder when all menu items look good. Like most restaurants Ruby Tuesday has pictures on the menu and they also have signature daily dishes. Implementing daily food items makes the restaurant meet fine dining expectations to be in the market of competition with restaurants like Arizona’s. Arizona’s is a very high end restaurant that have chefs that decide on daily menu items. With Ruby Tuesday picking up this as an option it is giving fine dining restaurants some competition because they have lower prices. The salad bar offered by Ruby Tuesday is an amazing experience as most restaurants serve salad with meals but you are able to prepare your own at Ruby Tuesday. The company has this to make the dining more personal as you can prepare your salad just the way you like it.
When a person thinks of Ruby Tuesday, he or she connects images of it to other restaurants offering fast food and others providing dine-in services. The individual recognizes Ruby

Tuesday with Morrie

...SSC 1105 LEARNING SKILLS REFLECTIVE JOURNAL (Tuesdays with Morrie) Reflective Journal The most meaningful sentences I found within Tuesday with Morrie was on page 52 when Morrie said, ‘The most important thing in life is to learn how to give out love, and to let it come in.’ In real life, ‘love’ can make people warm, happy, peaceful, and make a person smile. If we share the love among one another, especially with a sincere heart, people soon will feel the love eventually give their love to us too. Love that comes solely from true heart cannot be bought by money, and it is valuable. In my life experiences, I remembered when the time I followed my mother went to old folk’s house, I will feel warm and happy after that. Every time, mum will buy daily life stuff such as rice, bread, some clothes, instant drinks and etc for folks over there, even those things are not expensive and brandy stuff. When they received, I know they feel so touch through the expression on face because they feel there are still have people who care for them. During mum chat with them; I can see their smile on the face. Message I received was that Love is the most powerful thing in the world, so we should learn how to give out love, and to let it come in. ‘Love is the only rational act.’ (pg52) I personally felt that love can let to solve the problem softly as we can think rational within love. We will consider the consequences on each action before we take it. In life...

Black Tuesday

...BLACK TUESDAY IN THE BAHAMAS(APRIL 27, 1965) (Events inside and outside of The House of Assembly and aftermath of Black Tuesday are excerpts from "The Quiet Revolution" by Dame Dr. Doris Johnson.) Possibly the greatest event in the movement towards Bahamian Independence was Black Tuesday. This event culminated in 1967 but started with the 1962 General Elections. The 1962 General Elections was the first elections where all Bahamians including women, were allowed vote: universal adult suffrage. Surprisingly, the United Bahamian Party won the elections over the PLP. The UBP had 21 seats and the PLP had 8. Roland Symonette became the country's first Premier. Historians have hypothesized as to why the PLP lost the elections despite overwhelming support from the majority of Bahamians. Firstly, the PLP complained of UBP job threats. Workers complained that they were threaten with being fired if they voted for the PLP. Also, the UBP campaigned on the grounds that they had done a good job of improving the Bahamian economy; and that change now would frighten the American tourists and investors who were just now coming back from the 1958 General Strike. The UBP suggested that the PLP were not knowledgeable enough to run the country and if the PLP were to gain control of the government, the economy would be ruined. Additionally, the PLP complained that the UBP had arranged the constituency boundaries in such a way as to give themselves an unfair advantage. This "fixing" of the...

Australian Contemporary Drama - Ruby Moon and Stolen

...The plays Ruby Moon (RM) by Matt Cameron and Stolen by Jane Harrison are extrapolations of the Australian identity and the issues and concerns contained within the places, people and the wider Australian community. The societal issues of missing children and national and personal identity are artistically weaved into the stories of the plays. Audiences are not only entertained by these strong pieces of Australian Contemporary Theatre (ACT), they are encouraged to connect with and appreciate the message within. Cameron’s portrayal of an idyllic Australian neighbourhood provides the ideal setting for the message he conveys throughout RM. The sinister characteristics of suburbia are buried deep under the perfect veneer of Flaming Tree Grove, behind the closed curtains of each house. In contemporary Australia the picturesque understanding of a friendly neighbourhood is no longer relevant as nightmares of children going missing and being unable to trust your neighbour occur constantly and nobody can be trusted, this clearly elucidates Cameron’s vision in which he comments on “proximity does not equal intimacy”. The corruption of innocence does not only affect the immediate family of missing children but also extends to the community as each person is trapped within the internal world of Flaming Tree Grove. The fractured fairy-tale motif runs concurrent throughout the entire play. Fairy-tales, which teach morals and warn of wrong doings, are overturned as Ruby is taken upon a...

Ruby Tuesday

...Ruby Tuesday’s is a bar and grill style of a restaurant that was founded in 1972, by a 22 year old man named Sandy Beall, in Knoxville, TN (Our history). The concept of the first location that was opened in Knoxville had a strategy to be known as a comfortable and casual environment where guests could get quality food that tastes good (Our History). Over the past years different marketing strategies have come and gone for the business. Some strategies have worked in means of increasing sales and others didn’t work at all. In order to maximize profit and continue to bring in more revenue to the business a company has to know its place in the market. Conducting an analysis that involves the company knowing its strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats will assist a company with important information that is needed to boost sales and gain a better presence in the market. Target Market Before conducting a SWOT Analysis, Ruby Tuesday would have to identify their Target Market. This is critical mainly because without this being known, they wouldn’t know what types of people are their current customers and they won’t know how to promote their business to bring in future customers. When it comes to their menu Ruby Tuesday has always tried to promote healthy recipes which means that their target market seems to aim for individuals 35 and up. Their current menu has a couple of dishes on there now that have the caption by them “Taste of the Islands”, which could be...

Tuesday with Morrie

...Tuesday with Morrie Leisure is finding free time to do ones own personally activity that brings happiness to oneself through the activity. Free time, attitude and activity is what defines leisure, in the movie Tuesday with Morrie, leisure is the defining cause of happiness for the main character, Mitch. In today’s society, we are so busy with our daily lives that we forget to have some time to ourselves. And it clearly depicts that in the movie, with Mitch’s busy lifestyle of being a reporter, he loses focus with everything else. Family, love, and life are the main focus of leisure of Morrie and he tries instilling it on Mitch, which he slowly learns as his life fades away. From this movie I learned that leisure is not just finding free time for oneself, but it is a life away from work. Compensation, needs that are satisfied that cannot be satisfied at work, is what the main character needed and wanted. I learned that leisure time from work is crucial to maintain a healthy relationship with co-workers, family members, loved ones, etc. That time away from work can mean the difference in marriage and divorce. An example from the movie would be when Mitch took Morrie’s advice and took off work and spend more leisure time with Janine and eventually proposing to her. It shows that leisure time provides a clear mind to think about future goals and lifestyles. The one big fact about leisure that I learned and that the movie showed is that leisure goes from physical to more......

Black Tuesday

...BLACK TUESDAY “Black Tuesday” began in The Bahamas April 27th 1965.Black Tuesday took place not only inside but outside The House Of Assembly. According to Source B Black Tuesday was possibly one of the greatest events in the movement of Bahamian independence. The PLP (Progressive Liberal Party) was formed November 23rd 1953.The PLP consisted of Sir Lynden Pindling, the late Sir Milo Butler, Mr. Cyril Stevenson, Mr. Sammie Issacs, the late Clarence A. Bain, and the late Sir Randol Fawkes. The formation of the PLP was a first for The Bahamas because it introduced party politics. At this time the majority group in the House was the Bay Street Boys, who later formed the UBP (United Bahamian Party). As mentioned by Source B around the time October 1956 at that time, only a few men, those who owned land, could vote. In addition, a man could vote in as many placed as he owned land, every company that owned land could vote, no woman could vote, and 21 years was the qualifying age. The PLP sought to change this desperate state of affairs and the UBP fought them every inch of the way. Between 1959 and1961, the Women’s Suffrage Movement took up the cause of votes for women and in July 1961, the act of voting for women became law. This was a huge step toward majority rule. The 1962 general election was the first election were all Bahamians including women were allowed to vote. Surprisingly though the UBP won the election over the PLP. This was because workers were threatened...

American Psycho: Tuesday - Analysis by Frederik Jægergaard

...TUESDAY, a chapter from the novel “American Psycho” (1991) by Bret Easton Ellis. Lack of remorse and guilt, shallow affect, glibness/superficial charm and impulsivity are common characteristics found in the behaviour of a psychopath. Patrick Bateman, the main character of this novel, has similar behaviour. Even after spontaneously and brutally killing an innocent homeless man, he still finds his evening anticlimactic and boring, and regrets not attending dinner with some colleagues at the Salvadorian bistro. In this chapter of the novel “American Psycho”(1991) by Bret Easton Ellis, Patrick Bateman, a successful and wealthy businessman, brutally murders an innocent homeless man. Bateman approaches the bum as a kind and caring person, willing to lend him a few dollars for food and shelter. “”You want some money?” I ask gently. “Some food””? (p. 135 l. 3.). At first Bateman reaches for a ten dollar bill, but reconsiders and finds a five dollar bill instead. But before handing the homeless man the money, Bateman begins to interrogate him. The questions escalate from questions of genuine curiosity such as: “is this (a five dollar bill) what you need?”(p. 135 l. 6) into rude questions:” If you’re so hungry, why don’t you get a job?” — “I lost my job” — “Why? .. Were you drinking? Is that why you lost it? Insider trading? Just joking. No, really. Were you drinking on the job?”. (p. 135 ll. 13-19). The homeless man keeps telling Bateman that he is hungry and cold, but instead...

Ruby-Throated Hummingbird’s Color Preferences

...Jennifer Cooper American Intercontinental University Unit 1 Individual Project Ruby-throated Hummingbird’s Color Preferences 11/17/13 Ruby-throated Hummingbird’s Color Preferences Introduction: Ruby-throated hummingbirds are found primarily in the middle to eastern part of the United States. They are the only hummingbirds found in this region. Birds.audubon.org, (2013) states they are quick little birds that are always in motion and they are approximately nine centimeters in size. Bastone (2012) shared they are the only birds can that hover in one place and can fly up to thirty mile per hour. Like other hummingbirds, they mainly eat nectar from flowers. Do the hummingbirds prefer some colors over others when selecting flowers for feeding? Hypothesis: If red flowers are present; then birds will ignore other colored flowers in the area. Prediction: If the birds flock to the red flowers more than other colors; then they select their food based on color. Controlled Experimental Method: This test will include three bird feeders made of the same material, same size, placed at the same height but three different colors; red, blue, and green. Hummingbird feeders are made of glass or plastic. The feeders will be hung outside in the bird’s normal feeding environment near the woods. All three feeders will be filled with the same source and amount of water and equal amounts of sugar so that only the color will differentiate them apart. The feeders will be...

The Priceless Ruby and Nettle

...The Priceless Ruby and Nettle Munro's stories abound in such questionable seekers and well-fingered ploys. But they abound also in such insights: within any story, within any human being, there may be a dangerous treasure, a priceless ruby, and a heart's desire. ----Margaret Atwood I. Munro’s narrative mode In traditional narrative mode of novel, such as Chekhov,the whole story is divided into four parts: the beginning, development, the climax and the end. Some critics describe this mode as “Roller Coaster” kind, because the hero or heroine’s life in the story is just like taking a roller coaster—you know there is going to be a big turn but you never know how dangerous or exciting it can be. But in Munro makes every story looks like a peaceful journey, we can wander with the narrator, to see what is inside her mind and to explore her memory, and we will never expect the big change that is about to happen. In a 2010 interview, Munro said she wanted her readers “to feel something is astonishing—not the ‘what happens’ but the way everything happens”. We readers will trust her and give away our hearts to let her lead us to a sightseeing or maybe take a trip back to the childhood or a “beautiful time” of the narrator’s life, and we will be confronted with the real life—the one that might be bitter compared to the sweet memory, that’s when we realize her theme. In this novel, Nettles, Munro tells us a story about the problem of a middle-aged woman, about her...

Aunt Lou and Ruby

...Text A is a transcript of Ruby, aged 3 years and 4 months. I believe the language shown in this text shows that Ruby is in the telegraphic stage of development. However she expresses signs of post telegraphic language. Repetition is used throughout the transcript. Lou often repeats what Ruby says to her if she happens to make a grammatical error within her speech. Ruby says “yeh”; Lou reinforces the correct way to pronounce what Ruby is trying to articulate, by saying “yes” as soon as she has said it. Lou is doing this purposely in order to cushion the idea in Ruby’s head, that she has made an error when pronouncing a certain lexical choice. In this case “yeh” is described as more of a slang word, whereas “yes” is seen as the correct Standard English term. Lou is encouraging that when you say “yeh”, which has the same meaning as yes, it should be pronounced with an ‘s’, as it may be seen as more polite, this supports Skinners theory of language acquisition, he suggested that imitation and reinforcement helps develop a child’s knowledge on how to pronounce and say lexis. We can predict by reading through the transcript that Ruby has taken what Lou has reinforced on board. Ruby later on says “yes”, when Lou asks her if she wants apple juice, Lou again repeats after Ruby “yes”, she does this in order to emphasise the reinforcement that you pronounce “yeh” like “yes”, she has done this more than once as it is more likely to stay in Ruby’s head. This is acting as a kind of ‘role...
