Raising Cane’s has a unique story and intriguing story. Everything all started by a college student, Todd Graves, and a business assignment. He was assigned to make his own business plan. Todd turned in his plan to open a business that served only chicken fingers. His professor told him that his plan would never work, and gave him a low grade. Todd Graves did not let his professor bring him down with negativity. Todd took this as a challenge and started working 24/7 to earn money to start his business. He even went to the extreme of working in Alaska on dangerous jobs. He eventually had all the money he needed to start his first restaurant. He bought a building right outside of LSU’s campus. Todd and some buddies started renovating and as they were, they noticed a mural on the wall. This mural became the base of Cane’s logo. During an interview of Todd Graves, it states, “Baton Rouge, LA based Raising Cane’s chicken fingers, which now has more than 70 units in 13 states and does $125 million in annual sales,” (Berta).

Speaker The speaker is Annie Dillard, who is also the author of the book. In Holy the Firm, the author expresses her thoughts in regard to questions such as the reason that humans are created by God; the meaning and essence of God’s work; and the relationship between the believers and God. Dillard encounters great conflicts in her belief in God when she saw that a girl in her neighbour’s farm was burned by a plane crash. She starts to question whether every act of God has any real meaning in it and if it does, why would God let a innocent girl be burned by excruciating fire at such a young age when she has done nothing wrong. She even wonders if God is just a powerless creator who has no power to save those who suffer from atrocities.
) If I were to be interviewed by local media about The First tee and was asked about the impact that it had on my life I would say it had a huge impact on my life that was very positive. I would tell them that the first tee taught me the 9 important core values I use when I’m playing golf and outside of golf.

In the girls golf classes I learned to gain more confidence, I met amazing coaches, leaders, and friends, and I learned to use perseverance

Globalization, technology, shifting demographics and cultural transformations have profoundly changed the way in which individuals contribute to society. Today, we are gradually moving away from traditional models of employment while new business models are starting to emerge. An example of this is what it is often referred to as the “1099 Economy”, where temporary work are becoming the norm and workers opt for becoming contractors and not employees (eventually receiving a 1099 form from the IRS instead of the W-2, hence the name). Companies like Uber, Handy or TaskRabbit are examples of this new model.
From the view of the employers, zero-hour contract provides them with flexible labour force. The employers are able to change the number of hours that an employee is given per week, with that the employers are able to manage their cost in the sense that they can offer lower working hours when demand is low and higher working hours when demand is high, and furthermore to avoid overstaffing in quiet seasons and understaffing in busy seasons.
