How to get rid of halaal chicken
This week I want to involve myself constructively in the raging debate about Kentucky Fried Chicken going halaal.

Too many people have commented on the halaal issue, with some claiming that Swazis are ignorant and childish for starting a debate about KFC going halaal. I was happy this week when the KFC General Manager Mario Pimenta ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Is now the time to add or cut advertising? - Sales & Marketing ...
Some people are telling me to cut my advertising as a cost saving measure when times are tight. Others recommend spending more during the downturn. I know that in past recessions, customers' behavior changes (i.e. clipping more coupons).
