McKenzie Davies's insight:

I think that this article is very intersting especially becasue we just had our section on gambling.  I think it is good that laws which would have expanded gaming in FLorida did not pass becasue it would have had a negative on the social environemnt.

Fox? Mink? Rat? Western companies become food cops in China, in part because of inadequate government oversight

McKenzie Davies's insight:

I think that it is important that China is starting to take large steps in the way of food safety and testing.  It is now a leading nation in produciton and they need to have checks in their systems.  As a nation that is trying to feed so many people it is easy to take short cuts and sell tainted food or food with too much anti-biotics and hormones.

McKenzie Davies's insight:

I think it is very important, now more than ever for cruise lines to start regualting their procedures on board as well as make sure that all ships are up to code.  It is embarrasing to the industry that they have been having so many issues lately when it comes to on baord safety as well as fuctional problems with ships.

Partner sues Gordon Ramsay for $10.8M over restaurant 'dictatorship' - Page Six

Partner sues Gordon Ramsay for $10.8M over restaurant 'dictatorship' Page Six A Manhattan investor slapped his business partner, celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay, with a $10.8 million lawsuit claiming the famously hot-tempered cook gobbled up profits...

McKenzie Davies's insight:

I find this article to be very interesting, although Mr. Ramsey is portrayed as a hot head chef on TV I did not truly believe he would act like that in real life because he is so successful.  If Gordon is guilty of what his partner says it could be extremely detrimental to Chef Ramsey’s brand. I also think it was very irresponsible that they named the restaurant the fat cow although there was possible trademark infringement.  This almost sounds like a case of power going through your head.

Alabama Hotel sues city over non renewal of license

Circuit Judge Helen Shores Lee said she would rule by week's end whether or not to issue a temporary restraining order that would allow the hotel to continue to operate until arguments are presented at a full hearing.

McKenzie Davies's insight:

I find this story to be very interesting, It was an interesting twist  that the hotel filed suit against the city in order to try to counter act the suit againt them.  The porblem with the argument is that obviously there was a probelmwith security at the property if there was such a high amount of calls to the police department which included homicide and drugs.  Although they did have a good argument that if they were to be closed it would leave an empty building which would probably attract criminal activity, obviously their porperty is also aiding in criminal activity so they need to go through a very extensive reformation or just be shut down all together.

The budget hotel at Interstate 65 and Oxmoor Road had over the course of 32 months drawn in 148 police calls for crimes such as homicide, drugs and prostitution among other charges. Was the city's decision "arbitrary and capricious"?
