연방 교통 안전 당국은 서비스 규제의 새로운 시간에 대한 7월1일 실행의 연장에 대해 부정적인 입장을 표명했다. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has denied a request to extend the July 1 implementation date of the new hours of service regulations. The American Trucking Association asked the agency to delay the effective date in order to allow time for a decision by the DC Circuit Court of Appeals in the association's lawsuit against the rules. In their letter denying the stay, FMCSA stated it believed that uncertainty over the outcome of the lawsuit did not create sufficient cause for a delay. The Court is scheduled to hear oral arguments in the case on March 15. Barring a court decision overturning the regulation, the rule will now take effect on July 1 and distributors are urged to plan accordingly.

In-N-Out 햄버거 체인은 5개 주에 281개의 점포를 보유하고 있다. Under CEO Lynsi Torres' watch, In-N-Out has expanded to 281 stores in five states.

While competitors routinely roll out new products and limited-time offers, In-N-Out's menu has remained essentially unchanged: burgers, fries, soda and shakes, reported Orange County Register.comFull Story

If it rains this spring and summer, even fewer animals are predicted to move into feedlots because ranchers will hold back cows to breed and rebuild their herds, reported The Associated PressFull Story
