It is very hard to ship food to those fast-food stores - by airplane, truck, through dangerous roads, etc.
In 1991, McDonalds had less than 4,000 restaurants overseas. Now it has 18,000 restaurants in 120 different countries outside the U. S.
KFC and McDonalds make the majority of their profit overseas.
People in third-world countries view fast-food restaurants as signs of American freedom.
Coca-Cola and other soda companies are also trying to expand overseas.
Anti-American attacks often occur at fast-food stores overseas, like in China or in Russia.
These attacks have risen to such a scale that they need to build their stores out of bombproof walls and bulletproof windows.
The Mad Cow Disease caused many consumers to be outraged and boycott buying fast food and beef products in general when it was exposed in the 1980s.
After Britain and other countries placed a ban on Mad Cow Disease-infected beef, McDonald’s cracked down on food safety. McDonald’s has 32,000 stores in 117 countries, and employs 1.7 million people.
In Q1 2011, McDonald’s made $1.2 billion in profits.
Sales declined in the early 2000s and prompted some franchises to be shut down. This caused McDonald’s to rethink its operation to be more eco-friendly and ethical.
McDonalds has also imposed a ban on genetically modified grain fed to the animals that it buys.
McDonalds has also worked with suppliers to make sure they are as energy efficient as possible.

Global Research MLA Citations Our chapter was about globalization of fast food, protests to the unhealthiness of fast food and how to take action. "Your Way" talks about how what is happening in other companies affects companies like McDonalds. It also shows some stories that indicate changes for the better in the fast food industry, and how we can make a difference. We liked how the author doesn't say eat this or don't eat this, but instead informs us about it all and leaves it up to us to decide based upon our own "well-informed" decisions.

As for collaboration, our group worked well by going on whenever we could and getting as much done as possible. That strategy worked because we split the project into parts, and each person took care of their assigned part and helped the others if they'd finished their part to the satisfaction of the rest of the group. Some things that could have gone better would be that there was a slight lack of communication, and what ended up happening was that some people had to do more work than others because they were limited by various factors (time, technology, etc.) The fairness of the distribution of work was slightly lopsided too--after the first day we should have taken into account the limitations and redistributed the work load according. Something that we should each work on as individuals is approaching the group member that is having difficulty and help them to complete their task instead of just completely taking it over, so that they can both learn from the experience. Overall, we thought that we did a good job on organizing and being well prepared for the presentation in addition to keeping the presentation interesting for the chapter "Your Way". Our chapter
-how to take action and make a difference
-how what's happening in other countries is affecting the fast food industry
-individual stories about how fast food is improving due to protests against how unhealthy it is

Our opinions
-we liked how the author doesn't say what we should and shouln't eat, just gives us the information to make the decision ourselves

What we did
-split up the project
-assigned parts
-approval from the rest of the group

Improvements for next time
-lack of communication
-limitations such as time and technology hindered some people
-somewhat unfair distribution of work The effects on one anti-america riot.
