I aspire to emulate the moral convictions of Truett Cathy, the founder of Chick-fil-A. Truett Cathy never compromised his morals for his own success. His restaurant franchise has succeeded operating only six-sevenths of the time of his competitors. This is due to his commitment to keeping the Sabbath. I see this level of commitment in myself. I never take a shortcut that will compromise my morals. Instead, I work for my success the hard way. Last year, I found myself in a class where a large majority of my peers would cheat on quizzes and tests. I worked hard studying my notes and reading my textbook, and fought to make grades similar to theirs. My instructor would curve our quizzes and tests, so it was devastating when there was material
Chapter 7 of Fast Food Nation discussed the starting of meatpacking industry and its downfalls. At first, Iowa Beef Packers (IBP) used the same principle as McDonald’s principle to make fast foods. IBP hired unskilled workers just to do simple and repeated work all day. However, competition with other companies made IBP low wages and health insurance options. This caused slaughterhouses to move West to gain cheap labor and land. As stated in the text, “The relentless low-cost competition from IBP presented old-line Chicago meatpackers with a stark choice: go west or go out of business” (pg.155). Speaker claimed that there were two choices either going to the west or go out of business. Logically, companies would not give up their business.

Ever wondered why a lot of food commercials and cleaning products have black woman as the face of them? It isn’t merely because these women just got lucky and landed a mainstream commercial, they were chosen for a particular reason.

In the “Eat Mor Chikin” ad released by Chick Fil A viewers see a humorous trio of cows protesting against the consumption of beef-based products. The three cows are somewhat imitating humans by standing on two legs while holding very large signs on their bodies similar to protestors for organizations such as PETA (people for ethical treatment of animals). On each sign you can clearly see that the cows are attempting to spell “Eat More Chicken,” however each word is either misspelled or very badly written due to the fact that cows don’t have hands or a very high IQ. This image depicts each cow with a very stern look on their faces which clearly shows that they are each fed up with the consumption of cows and would rather let the chickens suffer. ‘

In the year of 1988, a woman named Rebecca Skloot first learned about a woman known as Henrietta Lacks. Ever since then, Skloot had been deeply fascinated by her. Henrietta is quite fascinating, and did wonders for the world of science. It started in the year of 1951, when Lacks was just 31 years old. She first noticed she was bleeding, when it was not her time of the month. From then on, she began seeing a doctor in John Hopkins hospital for check-ups and treatments for cervical cancer. During one of her treatments, a doctor took a sample of her “knot” and passed it on to another doctor in the building to test it. This doctor was named George Gey, and he was trying to make the first immortal human cell line. However, every time he tried, it just did not seem to work. When Gey’s assistants began to grow Henrietta 's cells, they expected them to just die. But that’s not what happened. They created the first immortal human-cell line. From that point on, HeLa cells were in high demand.
