NEW YORK (AP) – Behind those Big Macs and Whoppers is a hidden drama over corporate control.

13. Rail Houses in Art, Elsewhere -

Editor’s note: This is the second in a three-part series.

The quest continues for a definition of rail house, a term found in business names across several countries. Most Rail Houses are eateries, or drinkeries, but there’s a rec center, an event venue, a B&B, a brewery or two, office buildings, and more. A typical Rail House is near the tracks, has a train station motif, and may be located in a remodeled railway building.

14. Paying Attention -

ON MY WATCH. AND YOURS. Mrs. Parker tends her corner of the garden at Trezevant with loving dedication, looking up from her planting and fussing with a gloved wave to Nora and me as we walk by of a morning. A couple of years ago, she presented us with a bag of ginger lily roots. Hers was taking up too much room, and she didn’t want it to spread any more.

DISCRIMINATING TASTE. By all means, discriminate. Refuse to accept some prepackaged deal as the best you can do, some label to be the quality test.

In the unknown, demand fresh and bold, the promise of new and interesting interpretations from old and predictable ingredients.

20. SEC Network Poised to Take Over -

Wading in … and wondering what an eventual deal between the SEC Network and DirecTV will mean for me. Will my bill go up 10 percent? Fifteen percent? Twenty percent?

Will I have to drink only domestics in brown bottles? Give up the ESPN of coffee (Star----)?

21. Medical Makeover -

After suffering from years of benign neglect, a new, more invigorated Memphis Medical Center is finally beginning to take shape.

25. Jack Daniel’s Opposes Changing Whiskey Law -

If it isn’t fermented in Tennessee from mash of at least 51 percent corn, aged in new charred oak barrels, filtered through maple charcoal and bottled at a minimum of 80 proof, it isn’t Tennessee whiskey.

39. ‘Intertwined’ -

DeAndre Brown runs what might be the best known landscape business in areas of Memphis where the yards have brush and trees taller than the vacant houses they completely obscure.

“We operate a little differently than other contractors. Most have subcontractors that work separately,” he said. “We are one large crew of 60 men or women. We get the heavy equipment in first.

If you read much about stress, you quickly find out that stress isn’t necessarily a bad thing.

74. Try ‘Design Thinking’ for Innovation -

While the word innovation thunders from the boardroom, few companies actually build a sustainable process for generating real solutions that create value.

If you take the time to read about the German writer, artist, biologist, physicist, and all-around highly productive guy Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, you will find that he accomplished quite a bit during his 80-plus years on the planet Earth.

81. A Few Simple Rules For ‘Brown-Bagging’ -

We don’t hear the term “brown-bagging” much now. It was a holdover from the time when the city of Memphis did not allow liquor by the drink in restaurants, so if patrons wanted a cocktail, they had to bring their own liquor to the restaurant, often inside a brown paper bag, and pay for set-ups. The city did not rescind that ordinance until 1972.
