There’s no denying that we love ourselves a good burger. Burgers used to be made on an assembly line and then shoved under a heat lamp until they were eventually brought over to your table. This old concept can still be found at your older fast food chains that promise low quality meals for a cheaper price. Around 2005, this all started to change with the emergence of made-to-order burger chains like Five Guys burger franchise that made your meals on the spot and contained fresh (not frozen) ground beef. Now, many other franchises have popped up such as Shake Shack that promote the same concept and are making the market increasingly more saturated. How do you change this concept to make your burger joint unique and have a fresh way of doing business?



Well, you start by making your burgers Eco-friendly. Usually, the words ‘burger’ and ‘Eco-Friendly’ don’t always mix. But, in this case, Epic Burger are trying to make you feel good about eating a hamburger again. Epic Burger opened in Chicago in 2008. It’s a privately owned business founded by David Friedman, a Chicago resident since 1983. The cornerstone of their concept is serving beef free of antibiotics and hormones as well as being humanely raised. This means meat that has no drugs pumped into it and won’t cause complications with humans eating too much antibiotics down the road and causing problems with bacteria-resistant diseases. Also, their bacon contains no nitrates. This means that you will have less of a chance of getting heart disease because nitrates can cause your arteries to harden and lead to a possible heart attack down the road. Even their packaging is Eco-friendly. Their plant-based packaging comes from renewable sources such as sugar cane, potatoes, and recycled paper. They’re also picky about their buns, butter, salt and cheese. They make fresh buns with no preservatives, use real butter, sea salt (compare to table salt) and premium Wisconsin cheese. The goal is to create an iconic American food without drugs, artificial colors and flavors, nitrates, phosphates and preservatives. They were recently named ‘Best Burger in Chicago’ by the Cooking Channel’s ‘Burger Wars’. Right now, they have seven locations in Chicago only so you’ll need to take a trip to the Windy City to check them out.

There’s no better gift during the holidays then to give money to a fake charity organization. Care4Less.org simplifies this process by putting together eight, worthy, fictitious causes for you to choose from such as Fathers4Mosquitoes and the Make-A-Sandwich-Foundation. We enjoyed the idea very much but thought that there were far too few charity names and ideas given on the website. We did some brainstorming and wondered what types of fake charity organizations we could come up with on our own. Here’s a short list of charitable organizations that you can help that will try to make the world a better place…


Ford, Ford, Ford



-This is a great charity that is a partnership between USA and Canadian politicians. It was started by ‘Former’ Toronto mayor Rob Ford as a way to give back to his fellow politicians and help them get the treatment that they deserve. Rob worked closely with the Betty Ford center after he was treated as a patient at the clinic. At the clinic, Ford learned about fiscal responsibility and how to avoid speaking in a foreign accent while intoxicated. Alcoholics, addicts, and their loved ones who require alcohol treatment or drug treatment begin the exciting journey to a new life at the Betty Ford Center. Once you finish your treatment at the Betty Ford Center, this charity helps to get you full-time employment by working at a the Ford Motor Company. You’ll be able to help put together new and exciting automobiles while also helping out the local Detroit economy and help them recover from the pitfalls of bankruptcy.

Modern gaming consoles are becoming increasingly complex. They are constantly getting bigger, heavier and do all sorts of things besides only video games. The Ouya gaming console is trying to change this concept by having a small box sit in your living room and only focus on simpler and more original games. The Ouya had one of the most successful Kickstarter campaigns in history and helped to raise more than $8.5 million.It's running its own version of the Android operating system. All systems can be used as development kits, allowing any Ouya owner and gamer to also be a developer without the need for licensing fees. Units started to ship to Kickstarter backers on March 28, 2013. The console was released to the general public on June 25, 2013. Let's take a look at some pros and cons to the PlayStation 4.

Pros:
-Sleek design
-Low price
-Open nature of the console
-Small size
-Easy to setup

Cons:
-Poor quality controller
-Hardware weakness
-Lack of software
-Not all games are free-to-play
-Cluttered store interface



The first thing that you’ll notice about the Ouya is its size. It’s a very small device and can easily fit in the palm of your hand. It’s a bad idea to think of this as a handheld device. It’s a small device that is meant to be small in order to fit easily somewhere on your entertainment table next to your television set. It’s got a nice shiny black color to it with a power button on the top that lights up the Ouya logo when powered up. All of the ports sit nice and tidy in the back and don’t interfere with anything. You’ve got a HDMI port and some USB ports in the back. The HDMI port makes the device simple to setup to your television and can output at 1080p which will be great for streaming media capabilities. The hardware is powered by a Tegra 3 processor (which is also used by Nexus tablets) and has 1 GB of internal RAM and 6 GB of internal storage. We were a bit skeptical of the low storage capabilities but then we realized that the games won’t be as hardware intensive as its competitors like Sony or Microsoft. The device can get hot after a couple of hours of usage and we hope that this doesn’t cause any of the hardware to burn out over time. We also noticed some frame rate issues in some games where multiple characters were on the screen at the same time.
