Chick-fil-A and Breastfeeding – Again?!

Chick-fil-A and Breastfeeding – Again?!

Chick-fil-A is once again on the headlines; and yet again, about “breastfeeding.”

Chick-fil-A-exterior-smThis controversy dates way back 4 years ago when according to the Orlando Sentinel – the restaurant’s manager suggested to a breastfeeding mother to cover up while in their play area. This means, there must be something to the restaurant’s culture that a natural instinct such as breastfeeding be prohibited within their vicinity.

A couple of days ago, a Tennessee mother was approached for breastfeeding in the play area of a Chick-fil-A restaurant.

Question: Is public breastfeeding indecent? Obviously, many have their own opinions.

Okay, tell you what..

Breastfeeding is not porno, and it only becomes “indecent” if it’s intentionally done in the middle of somewhere as if trying to attract public attention; and, and if the exposed breast is not used for appeasing a baby’s hunger. Right?

On the other hand, breastfeeding is fine if done when really necessary or on the “side” of wherever you are – and not to disrupt passers-by. However, whether the mother partly covers her breast or not should depend on the comfort of the child.

So why is Chick-fil-A against mothers nursing in public?

It may be related to religious beliefs as Truett Cathy, Chick-fil-As chairman, is a devout Southern Baptist. Hmm… sometimes, Bible interpretations may be taken out of context. So, I’m sure he understands that he could be isolating his customers and possible customers with this kind of policy.

If you pay pean…

If you pay peanuts, you get monkeys. – James Goldsmith

Peanuts? Monkeys? What do you actually mean by that??

Obviously, it’s all about currency and goods. Your money determines the kind and quality of product or service you pay for. That if you want a good product, you got to pay higher for its value; and if you could only afford a low end product – then you just have to accept it as it is. Oh my..

Take pirated tapes or CDs for example. Isn’t it that when you buy these replications – you get lower sound quality or poor resolution copies?

Yet in all these, as consumers, we want to get more out of our monies even for bargain products – so, manufacturers just have to dig it. Quality at a lower price.

Finding solutions to food shortage and food-related diseases is good – this is why we truly welcome food innovation even “cultured” ones. Health is wealth, you know.

Hamburger_Culture_WideThe problem is that, of course, the ‘unusual’ taste and the price.

Okay, we understand that researchers could be doing something about the taste; but affordability should, especially, be addressed if advocates really want this to take off. Maybe scientists should do something about “stretching” the formula to maximize the production of these cell burgers. Makes sense?

If only to continue its studies, billionaires could pour in money as Google’s Sergey Brin did; however, yes, entrepreneurs understand the importance of pricing yet if they hope to do business with this..

I mean, who could afford a $325,000 hamburger?

Caring for man’s best friend… err, friends!

While it’s great to have a dog — the benefits of having one naturally goes with some corresponding responsibilities. Are you ready, or are you doing it already? Then good.

So, what can we do for one that gives us unconditional love and protection like our pet dog? What else but give ’em all the care and supplies that she needs..

A Plea by UK PM to Social Media

Boycott sites that don’t muster against abuse!

That link was the call of British Prime Minister David Cameron following the death of Hannah Smith, the 14-year-old girl who was subject to web bullying.

Social-Media-2Well, we are all “consumers” to social media services and should only use this “right” positively – to inform, to assist people, or have fun without harming or even thinking of harming others – so much so, females and children.

If you want attention – bullying is not the answer. You would just end up in a not so good place. Focus on co-existing in a peaceful and mutually beneficial way. Be sincere, helpful, patient and respectful – and you will be rewarded, yes, in due time.

There is only o…

There is only one boss: the customer. And he can fire everybody in the company, from the chairman on down, simply by spending his money somewhere else. – Sam Walton

See?? That’s how powerful you are as a Customer!

Notice how companies are scrambling to manufacture new goods, to innovate on existing products, to fine tune their services – to satisfy you?! Yes, you!

You have the last say in a product or service’s life. You can demand just about anything “reasonable” with an almost certain payback — that’s why we have this site now — for you to let your heart’s out.

So?? Come on, let’s hear it!

Bird flu is at it again!

Bird flu is at it again!

There’s a report that a new strain of bird flu — that has emerged from China — is “passed between humans.”

poultry_bigNotice that there always seem to be a new strain on fowls?? Sure health people and researchers are focused on it; but they got to be a bit more proactive. Ever since this kind of flu came up — it never really went away. Just mutates and comes back in a different strain.
