  • Is Trilith, a ‘Company Town’ for Marvel’s Georgia Production Workers, the Template for Future Cities?

    Variety ^ | 2022 | Pat Saperstein
    Imagine that you’re a makeup artist or a production manager on a Marvel movie. You’re working long hours and barely have time to shop for groceries or get in any exercise, let alone do yardwork or socialize. But what if your house was a pleasant 10-minute stroll from the studio, during which you passed a craft beer bar and outdoor concert stage? You’re too tired when you get home to think about grocery shopping, but that’s OK, because the delivery robot has just rolled up in front of your house with your weekly order.That’s the almost-too-utopian promise of Trilith, the...
  • Political Vendetta Or ‘Public Nuisance’: Santa Barbara Chick-fil-A Under Fire

    03/07/2022 3:22:25 PM PST · by blam · 21 replies ^ | 3-7-2022 | Katy Grimes
    The Santa Barbara City Council has given restaurant Chick-fil-A 90 days to fix its traffic problems on State Street or face the possibility of being declared a public nuisance. Why? A local woman who “never liked Chick-fil-A,” not because of their product, but “for their social positions,” found a reason to cancel reported: What spurred Hobbs to local action, however, was watching the upper State Street restaurant’s overcrowded drive-thru line spill constantly and precariously into the road, a public safety issue that has persisted for the better part of the decade, unabated, with no apparent consequences for either the...
  • Pair of Parkway service areas to be rebuilt under $10M contract that includes Chick-fil-A (Bloomfield mayor wants to ban the Chick-fil-A)

    New Jersey Turnpike Authority officials approved a $10 million agreement to rebuild two Garden State Parkway service areas, including one that has been criticized by Bloomfield officials for including a Chick-fil-A restaurant. The agreement, approved by a unanimous vote by the board of commissioners Tuesday, would reimburse Applegreen Ltd. and Sunoco for $10 million the companies would spend to build new facilities at the Vauxhall service area on the Parkway north in Union and at the Brookdale Service area on the Parkway south in Bloomfield. The Turnpike authority runs the Garden State Parkway. A Shake Shack, Popeyes, Dunkin’, and a...

    A pair of Arizona State University students have unleashed a nine minute diatribe after they were disciplined for taunting two white male students who entered the college's multicultural space. On Monday, Mastaani Qureshi, an undergraduate, and Sarra Tekola, a graduate student, posted a video on social media alleging ASU had carried out an investigation into their actions and called for them to write a three-page paper. In the video posted in response to the University's punishment Qureshi and Tekola claim the investigation into their actions was racially biased adding they were forced to confront these men because, in their view,...

    LGBT activists are relentless in forcing their agenda on the American people. It’s not enough for companies to fly rainbow flags every Pride month — they have to use special pronouns, too. It’s not enough for businesses to serve LGBT people — they have to bake custom cakes celebrating same-sex weddings and gender transitions, too. It’s not enough for Christian companies to stop funding outspoken political groups — they have to stop funding Christian groups, too.Take Chick-fil-A, for example. Back in 2012, LGBT activists targeted Chick-fil-A for a “kiss-in,” to protest the fast food joint’s stance defining marriage as being...
  • NY lawmakers want to ban Chick-fil-A from rest stops over its LGBTQ stance

    Chick-fil-A is getting skewered by a group of New York lawmakers who are looking to block the company’s bid to open restaurants at state highway rest stops because of its owner’s anti-LGBTQ stance. The Atlanta-based fast-food chain is among a handful of restaurants that were awarded contracts by the New York State Thruway Authority to be part of a $450 million plan to renovate 27 service areas. But Chick-fil-A’s chief executive, Dan Cathy — whose father, S. Truett Cathy, founded the $8.4 billion company in 1946 — has publicly disparaged LGBTQ rights, which some legislators say should disqualify the privately...

    So is the New York State Thruway.And recent calls by activist politicians for Chick-fil-A to be banned at newly renovated Thruway service plazas are examples of intolerance and bigotry.Because America is a live-and-let-live country, and those who demand respect should be obligated by conscience to give it as well. And if gay activists insist that the world be big enough to accommodate them, they must accept the fact that it is also big enough to accommodate people who are different from them.If we are all brothers and sisters, and we are all free, and we all are free to pursue...

    Burger King has introduced a new chicken sandwich to compete with Chick-Fil-A. To make their sandwich more friendly to the LGBTQ community, they announced they are offering it on Sundays, and donating to LGBTQ causes with each sale. Sources say the community is "extremely bummed" that they have to eat at Burger King now. "Why? WHY did Burger King do this to us?" said Xander Brenner, local gay man. "Chick-Fil-A is delicious. Eating their food is like touching heaven. Now I'm supposed to go to Burger King and eat this chewy crap alternative made by someone who didn't wash their...

    Burger King will donate to the Human Rights Campaign for every chicken sandwich sold this month. BK announced the initiative in a tweet aimed at Chick-fil-A. Chick-fil-A is under fire for CEO donations to groups fighting LGBTQ protections. See more stories on Insider's business page. Burger King says that for every Ch'King sandwich sold during June, which is Pride month, it will donate to The Human Rights Campaign. The chain announced the donation plans in a tweet on June 3 that seemed pointed at Chick-fil-A, the reigning chicken sandwich fast food restaurant. BK says it will donate 40 cents for...

    They’re laying off the sauce. Chick-fil-A will limit the number of condiments allowed per customer amid an industry-wide supply shortage, the firm said. The fast food joint, headquartered in Georgia, sent customers nationwide an email Monday declaring that customers will now get just one sauce per entrée, two per meal and three per order of 30-count nuggets, according to KSL.

    Source: Giuseppe Lami/ANSAOne of the saddest things I saw on Easter Sunday was Amazon delivery trucks on the road. Having to work on Sunday is bad enough, but Easter?Amazon drivers face many other challenges as well. reports (4/4/21) that the E-commerce giant finally acknowledged that some of their drivers are under stress where they can’t even take proper bathroom breaks. But enough about Amazon.Violating the Sabbath principle is not healthy for society nor for us as individuals. God rested after His creation. He commands us to rest for a day a week.Sunday as the Lord’s Day is even found...

    BRICK: Yesterday the massive brush fire blew east into Brick, and was burning at the Lowes on NJ 70. Many readers inquired about the status of Chick-Fil-A, which was closed on Sunday anyway. OCSN has no confirmation on any structural damage to the Brick restaurant; but surrounding CFA’s stepped in. The Howell Chick-Fil-A made and delivered sandwiches to the first responders fighting the fire. The staff and owners opened the Howell restaurant, which is normally closed on Sunday, solely to feed and appreciate the first responders. Way to go CFA! Yesterday, many of our team members came together with other...

    Do we get a vote on which corporations own our government? I’d take Chick-fil-A over any of the Big Tech oligarchs. They’re efficient, friendly, and nobody beats their chicken sandwiches.In Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, the town’s drive-through COVID vaccination system suffered a computer glitch. Quick-thinking Mayor Will Haynie called in the undisputed drive-through champions: Chick-Fil-A.“We asked local Chic Fil A (sic) manager Jerry Walkowiak for help today after a computer glitch backed up things at the drive-through vaccination site. Instead of just giving advice, this video shows what he did,” the mayor wrote.“When you need help, call the pros,” he...

    SOUTH CAROLINA — We’ve all heard the joke: If Atlanta-based Chick-Fil-A took over vaccine drive-through sites, we’d all get our shots in no time. Well, that came true this week for one community in South Carolina. When a drive-through vaccination site in Mount Pleasant got backed up, Mayor Will Haynie did the only thing that made sense: he invited a local Chick-Fil-A manager to the site to help expedite the process. The Atlanta chain, after all, has mastered the art of the drive-through. “We asked local Chick-Fil-A manager Jerry Walkowiak for help today after a computer glitch backed up...

    Matt's a regular at his neighborhood Chick-fil-A. "I can tell by his voice when he pulls up,” one employee said. "I’m a creature of habit,” said Stoudt. Well, that's the understatement of the year. Matt has eaten at Chick-fil-A every day since July 13, not counting Sundays and Thanksgiving. “'Cause they were closed,” said Stoudt. He found out a guy in California ate Chick-fil-A 114 days in a row, earning the "unofficial" record. "I called my wife and said 'hey, I wanna do it.' She laughed at me and thought I was ridiculous,” said Stoudt. Oh, it was ridiculous. “Today...

    U.S.—Scholars working at top divinity schools across the country now believe that Esau traded his birthright for a spicy chicken sandwich from Chick-fil-A, not a bowl of soup or lentils as originally thought. "It never really made sense to us that he traded his birthright for lentils," said one expert working at Southern Seminary. "Who likes lentils? Lentils are gross. But do you know what would have made sense? If he came back from hunting and smelled that delicious, patented Chick-fil-A scent." "Man, it's about lunchtime," he added. "I'd give my birthright for a 12-count nugget right about now."

    AUSTIN, Texas — Chick-fil-A said Monday that it no longer plans to open a restaurant in the San Antonio airport, even though the Texas city relented after more than a year of legal wrangling that began when some city leaders opposed the fast-food chain getting a spot, citing donations made by company owners to anti-LGBTQ causes. “We are always evaluating potential new locations in the hopes of serving existing and new customers great food with remarkable service.” Chick-fil-A said in a statement. “While we are not pursuing a location in the San Antonio airport at this time, we are grateful...
