Pizza Robbery In New Brunswick
With the use of records from cell phones, a New Brunswick man has been charged for the armed robbery in November. This was the robbery of the driver of a pizza delivery vehicle. The mans name is Parysh Wood and he is 21 years of age. He was in jail for a separate armed robbery regarding a different driver of another pizza delivery vehicle.
The robbery was perpetuated on November 30th at 9:30 p.m. This occurred in Quincy Circle in South Brunswick. The victim of this crime stated he was accosted by a man demanding all of his money, as well as his pizza. The information from Wood’s cell phone is what linked him to the crime.
Chief Raymond Hayducka stated that it was four months past the crime when the case was finally solved. The police did not give up. With the digital era we are living in, cases can be solved by looking for digital footprints. Wood is still in the county jail in conjunction with several other armed robberies involving the drivers of pizza delivery vehicles. His bail is set at $100,000. Sargent Ryan believes more arrests are imminent in the investigation.
Shooting In New Brunswick
An investigation is being conducted regarding two shootings occurring over a period of three hours in New Brunswick. This happened on a Wednesday evening, and there have not been any arrests made. The police think the two shootings are connected.
According to the police, the first of the shootings happened around 8 p.m. This was close to Lee and Talmadge. One shot was placed in the abdomen of eighteen year old Brian Lambert. Although the injury did not seem to be threatening his life, he was rushed to Johnson University Hospital. There is not a suspects description yet.
The second of the two shootings happened just prior to 11 p.m. on May Street. A New Brunswick woman named Mildred Porter was shot twice. This 55 year old woman was shot in both shoulder and the mouth. She was sitting in her vehicle at the time. She was approached by a man dressed in black and wearing a white ski mask. The man fired shots. Her injuries were also not threatening her life but she was taken to Johnson University Hospital.
According to Bloomberg, Billy McFarland may be a young man, but he has an incredibly innovative mind that gives him the chance to combine various aspects. As a youth, he understands that the young generation often cares about partying, eating and practically just spending money. As a result of this realization, Billy Mcfarland has decided to come up with a black card that gives access to all these activities put together. The card is owned by a company known as Magnises.
The Magnises card is typically a standard credit card. However, it is slightly heavier as it is metallic. It is not linked to any financial institution. However, it can be connected to your original credit or debit card giving it the ability to pay for your expenses. Additionally, you stand a chance of getting great discounts at various restaurants, bars, and clubs that are liaising with Magnises. Additionally, it is easier to get segmented spots at different concerts and even luxurious holidays.
Some of the firms that have joined the movement include La Esquin restaurant and Catch restaurant in the hospitality industry. The clubs include Finale, Goldbar as well as Spin Studio Cyc. As a member, you are entitled to discounted helicopter rides with the transport company Blade, when heading to the Hamptons.
Although the business is just one-year-old and aims at professionals within the age bracket of 21years old and 35 years old, Magnises has 6,000 members who pay $250 annually. These individuals are in differing sectors such as fashion, technology, and finance. This is a young business that will quickly find its footing in the society and will be worth billions in a few years to come.
Due to its rapid expansion, the startup relocated from a West Village townhouse to a fabulous and spacious penthouse at a Rivington Hotel. The company opts to use the extra space as offices for its members who can then hold meetings during the day. The room is also used as an open space to hold events such as cocktails and even late-night DJ sets.
Despite the fact that Billy did not complete his computer engineering at Bucknell University, he did not waste time in putting his skills to great use.
In today’s world fast food is a billion dollar business. You can find cheeseburgers, fried chicken, and pizzas everywhere from Japan to South Africa. The ubiquitous presence of burgers and fries is largely due to the work of the meat processor OSI Group. The way OSI Group perfected the art of preserving meat paved the way for the fast food franchises of today. The key innovation of OSI Group, cryogenic food processing, liberated fast food chains from the constant need for fresh meat. In 2011 OSI Group generated so much revenue it was considered the 136th largest private company in the world making OSI Group the king of meat processors.
The Breakthrough That Started It All
In 1909 a German immigrant named Otto Kolschowsky opened a family meat market in Oak Park, Illinois. Under his eye the meat market saw great success and his sons eventually joined him. Renamed Otto and Sons roughly two decades later the family business enjoyed a solid reputation among the local customers. The success of Otto and Sons grew until 1955 when Ray Kroc, the founder of Mcdonald’s, agreed to make Otto and Sons one of this fresh meat suppliers. Eventually the business between the Kolschowsky brothers and Mcdonald’s eclipsed all other Kolschowsky business dealings.
Rising To International Success
The introduction of cyrogenic meat processing allowed OSI to overwhelm the other suppliers of Mcdonald’s and reduced the need for fresh meat suppliers. The success of Mcdonald’s created success for OSI. In 1975 the Kolschowsky brothers became the exclusive supplier of meat to Mcdonald’s across the world. Undergoing another renaming OSI Industries caught the eye of other fast food chains looking for a way to cut their reliance on fresh meat suppliers. OSI expanded the array of meat products it processed to include things its new clients needed. Corn dogs, bacon, vegetables and dough were given the cryogenic treatment to expand the number of franchises OSI could supply.
The Continued Reign Of OSI
OSI currently operates 60 facilities in 16 countries scattered throughout the world. There are OSI meat plants in North America, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, and the Asian-Pacific Region. The company continues to expand well beyond its humble beginnings in Oak Park, Illinois. As long as there are fast food chains in need of frozen meat, vegetables, and dough OSI Groups will stay in business.

The achievements of Billy McFarland simply highlight what free enterprise is all about. The young entrepreneur who is the founder of the successful enterprise Magnises, has taken an idea and turned it into a huge success
McFarland came up with the idea of an elite card that can be used by millennials to gain access to discounts at restaurants, clubs, concerts and various travel opportunities. It is all done with the Magnises Black Card which has a $250 annual fee but lets the user in on hundreds of great deals.
The Black Card, which is made of metal and carried by the user, works by transferring data from an existing card to the Magnises card which allows its use in place of the credit or debit card. This opens the door for discounted purchases which include all kinds of venues that are partial to the millennial generation. A mobile app is available to find and take advantage of all the good deals that are available.
There are no spending limits or requirements and the concept is wildly successful. The Black card is currently available in Washington DC and New York City. There are plans for expansion to Boston, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Chicago and London. The business model is a very smart one. It geared to the urban areas of the larger cities where the millennials live and work. The venues which they are attracted to are located there as well
As of the end of 2015, there were over 10,000 members of Magnises which prompted the raising of three million dollars of venture capital. This will allow Magnises to expand geographically to other metro areas where the market is ripe for the service.
According to Business Insider, Billy McFarland formed his first enterprise, Spling when he was a freshman at Bucknell, which turned URLs into graphical mosaics. He continues to head that company as its CEO. Spling has Universal and Discovery as clients.
Billy McFarland is passionate about using his business model which works and is set in stone. Expansion plans for Magnises are clear. The company is moving forward with plans to provide the service to millennials on a nationwide and international basis
I am about to describe to you a dream scenario for any business owner. Imagine providing a service to over 1 million people. This group of people has no choice but to use your service and this service is an integral part of life. There is no competition and you can charge whatever you would like for this important service. What would you do?
Some business owners would run a skeleton crew staff in order to save on costs. You might even jack up the price in order to make hundreds of millions of dollars in profit. And there would be no incentive to provide good customer service because your customer base has no choice but to use what you provide.
This is the route that a company called Global Tel-Link has taken. The telecommunications conglomerate rakes in over $500 million per year raising prices on the telephone services they provide to prisoners and their families. They have an exclusive government contract to provide the services with no competition which allows them to drive up the price considerably.
But there is a also a company called Securus. This telecommunications competitor takes a completely different and ethical approach. They charge reasonable rates for telephone services and also provide video chat services to prisoners. They employ a 220 seat customer service call center which can respond to 2.5 million calls per month. They resolve 99.9% of all concerns on the first call and average in 11 second hold for incoming calls.
Securus even pays the Better Business Bureau for constant monitoring in order to upkeep a BBB accreditation. The accreditation is the highest award given by the BBB and it is shocking to hear that a company like Securus has achieved such an accreditation. After all, they are in a position of power which they apparently do not abuse.
