Team Case: A TURNAROUND KING HELPS BURGER KING RECOVER Nora Kennedy, Carrie Miller, Jake Kral 1. “A turnaround King Helps Burger King Recover” is an article discussing the decline and rise in the profitability of Burger King through a change in leadership.

The inefficient engines consume too many resources so that people are anxious about that. In addition, the pollution is more and more serious in terms of the waste from engines, especially on the greenhouse effect by the exhaust gases of engines. Therefore, engines seem dangerous to the society and the earth. Although they have some negative influence on the environment and resources, it is doubtless that engines are more and more efficient with the development of technology and have changed people's life and history. Admittedly, in some engines such as atmospheric engines and hydrogen engines, they have little waste to exhaust.
The Perfect Body Body image refers to one’s perception of his or her own body. People with a good body image are happy with the way they look, and people with a poor body image are not. The ideal body that the media portrays is a body that is nearly impossible to achieve for everyone except for a select few. Because of this “perfect” body that the media endorses that teenagers should look like, ninety percent of teens have a poor body image (Rapini). A large number of individuals develop their body image based on this image provided by the media, which judge attractiveness based on if the person is thin or has the biggest and most tone muscles; thus causing individuals to feel not good enough and causes them to take drastic and unnecessary measures to achieve that body portrayed by the media.
All the fast food chain restaurants long have declared a war of TV advertisement for trying to win over consumers’ mind over their fast food products. McDonald is very famous for its happy-red-headed clown for its TV commercials who grabs children attention; this attention will keep an impression in children’s mind as go to McDonald means going to a wonder castle for a fun and exciting adventure. In one of Burger King’s recent TV advertisement show how a farmer makes an onion that is “extra” hot for the “extra” spicy hamburger that make someone who eat the spicy hamburger and burned his mouth; this TV commercial make consumers who like to eat spicy foods want to try Burger King’s spicy hamburger. These two kind fast food chain restaurants’ TV commercials are example of hundreds, if not thousands of chain restaurants’ TV commercials thoughout America. Yet, in hundreds or thousands of chain restaurants’ TV commercials thought out America, two chained restaurants TV commercials have stand out to been most interesting; Jack in the Box and Carl’s Jr.’s TV commercials are unique and special.
We expected before the big scandal of him being an intelligent, honorable, athletic man who looks like a decent family man. However, we were completely wrong. Our expectations of a public figure can be right or wrong, but when it comes to tabloids and the media, our expectations of the celebrity can change instantly. People, who constantly expect too much from a public figure, want their expectations to be made. If not, we start being judgmental and that’s where the problems arise.
GE is a major corporation that owns popular television networks such as NBC and MSNBC. Yet, they are also a huge defense contractor that makes money off the war. This idea seems rather sketchy and unfair to many individuals who view the media as a faulty and untrustworthy source of information while also reinforcing the notion that the media is under the control of a sort of “virtual oligarchy”. The internet plays a key role in allowing the modern day fabricated media to slither past its supervisors, due to the fact that sources are harder to check than the actual facts themselves.

The media is responsible for creating different classes with respect to appearance, color, economic status, religion, and with the help of politics, advertisement because of the media’s powerful influence on public perception, which directly or indirectly affects the consciousness of a human being. The media can be very biased about a story, advertisements, coverage on different social issues. The media Pundits and talk heads talk about thinks which will make a story interesting, outrageous and as incredible as possible just to make profit out of it. For example, the media reporting of the Iraqi war, also known as “War on Terrorism”, influenced Americans to unleash a sentiment of patriotism which lead to a feeling of intolerance against the Middle Eastern. On the other hand, the media ignored people smashing the stores of the Middle Eastern looking ethnicity people in America.
Entertainment and Celebrity Public Relations They are vastly visible through media; their private lives become a greater attraction and public interest than their professional lives, and they emerge from the sports and entertainment industries. The celebrity is a person who is well-known for their well-knowingness; they are fabricated on purpose in order to satisfy the public’s exaggerated expectations of human greatness. (Turner, 2004) Entertainment and celebrity public relations aim to promote, protect and increase their celebrity client’s profile. However, not all public relations are good public relations, with some using incidents within a celebrity’s personal life to help gain public appeal. This paper will argue and portray the negative use of entertainment and celebrity public relations in promoting bad role models to society, using celebrities who are attractive to sell products; expose celebrities who set bad examples; use the media in order to present unrealistic images of the ideal person; and using negative events within a celebrity’s life in order to gain undeserving success.
The press possesses the capability to create the impression that certain problems are of greater urgency than others. Those certain problems are usually about political strategy, political scandal and the private lives of politicians. These tend to overtake the less entertaining, but more substantial stories because the public is not interested in them and they do not make money for the news company. One of the most ironic ways the media influences public opinion is by presenting the candidates personality through the use of television and radio. For example, Could one honestly say that Abraham Lincoln might not be elected if he were running today.
One more reason is that most information found on the Internet is of low quality, unfortunately. Secondly, mass media is used widely in politics. Using mass media is, perhaps, the only possible way to announce the decisions of the government rapidly and for all the citizens at once, to introduce the candidates to elective offices to all the nation, or for the opposition to affect the present state of things. Meanwhile, some people have the impression that certain politicians have gained power over the mass media, making it politicized and biased, and violating the freedom of speech. If it goes on like this, we might live in the society described by G. Orwell in “1984”, because if one controls the present, he can control the past; and controlling the past, it is possible to control the future.
