Ruger 10/22 factory scope mount: Is it a weaver mount?

I have a factory scope mount for my 10/22 and I had an 11mm dovetail set of scope rings on it today. It looks like there is an 11mm rail on top of a weaver rail. I am just wondering if I will be able to mount weaver rings on it before I order them. So, will the factory rails work with weaver rings?

For at least the last 5 years Ruger has shipped their 10/22 rifles with a scope base that has both 11 mm rail and Weaver rail so you can use either ring just fine.

What Nikon scope?? PLEASE HELP!!!?

Hello, I have a Savage .22 rifle and want to buy a better scope. I want to replace my Tasco 4X15 with a Nice and clear scope.What is a really good Nikon scope for around $90? And is 4X32 good for a .22, I'm using it for long range target practice. And since the Magnification on my Tasco is 4X(and not enough), I'm concerned its not enough...

Should I get the Nikon 4X32 or the Nikon 3-7X32? It says the 3-7X32 is for shot guns, But it could be used with a .22, right? There around the same price...

Which one:

http://cgi.ebay.com/NIKON-PROSTAFF-2-7X32-SHOTGUN-HUNTER-RIFLESCOPE-6308_W0QQitemZ350262611605QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_DefaultDomain_0?hash=item518d474e95

OR

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=270470758617&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT

THANKS

Nikon 3-7X32 will work and may give you a little more accuracy at 100yds. The 4x is usually fine but,if you want to spend a few dollars more this would be plenty.

Clarity is important....some cheap scopes with China pop bottle glass like one mentioned above will be less clear on 9x than a 4x Nikon.

What type of scope mount does a 552 speedmaster has?

I am new to guns and i own a Remington speed-master 552 rifle.I bought a scope for it, NCSTAR 4X20 HUNTING SCOPE HUNT 22 RIFLE DOVETAIL but it doesn't quite fit.What type is it? dovetail weaver.I have no idea...

The Remington 552 will have a standard 3/8 dovetail. The NCSTAR is such low quality junk that its mount is screwed up.

The HTC Hero Mobile Phone which is available in white, silver (which is in our test sample) and in brown and black, comes with the Google "Android" operating system in the market that wants to contact most comprehensive and convenient Internet multimedia capabilities with high competence and nice menu appearance. The HTC Hero is very nice phone, even as it rightly comes with the increasingly important flash accessories - other smart phones still do not always offer sufficient support. These touchscreen mobile phone is just for Rs. 31,990 and Rs. 34,600. For the money invested, the purchaser receives a modern mobile phone with exceptional design. Rich features distinguish the high quality workmanship and handy capability of the mobile phone. Among all those, there is a high-resolution 3.2 inch large screen, touch controls, WiFi, HSDPA / WCDMA up to 7.2 Mbps, multiple calendar functions and a 5 MP camera with a wide range of settings. Whether the HTC Hero not only comes with its innovative design but also how great is it in practical value, let us know in our test.

Processing characteristics
1. First optical impression / special features to support the design - Modern Design and black matte plastic produce a contemporary, not superficially but at the same time, progressive combination.

2. Housing material / surface quality - Matte plastic combined with a slightly rubberized type of plastic material.

3. Housing Dimensions - With a weight of 135 g and dimensions of 112 x 56.2 mm x 14:35, it is still well in hand and can be easily fit in pocket.

4. Response of the touch screen - Very good and very accurate response.

5. Goodness (sharpness / resolution) of the display - 3.2 inch TFT LCD display with 262,144 colors and a resolution of HVGA 320x480 Pixels. Very good color and sharp display. Evenly, relatively effective is the special stain-screen coating, the clarity of presentation only minimally limited. A fast change from horizontal to vertical display.

6. Quality of the battery compartment cover - The battery compartment cover is made slightly rubberized plastic, can be quite easy to open, close, and sits perfectly.

7. The quality and scope of the supplied accessories - USB cable, software, user manual, headset, charger.

8. Processing Result - The ultra-modern smartphone comes with a beautiful combination of matte color and slightly rubberized plastic. It lies with its dimensions and there is a more acceptable weight well in hand. The operation via touchscreen runs very precise and uniform. Colors and shapes are displayed properly on the screen. The accurately fitting battery compartment lid is slightly rubberized plastic. The accessories line with the standard and there is nothing to complain.

About the Author

HTC Hero Touchscreen Mobile Phone

I have a Ruder mini 14 Tactical rifle model 5846. It has a picatinny rail mounted on the top of?

the stock and a couple inches in front of the action. I use my mini for home defense and target practice no more than a 50 yards (150 feet). What would be a good but not to expensive (no more than $225.00) red dot sight or red dot scope for this application. It seems that any red dot scope or sight would be to far away if mounted to the picatinny rail. I'm trying to AVOID from mounting something over the action using the supplied scope rings from Ruger.

I'd say slap a reflex sight on it, or get a better set of sights like XS Big Dot or something of that matter.

Leupold Fx
Leupold Fx

has any1 got any experience with leupold 4x28 fx-1?ill be mounting to a marlin 60sn for vermin and targets. ?

Clearly you have already picked out your scope or you would have asked opinions on other brands. That being said, the Leupold Fx-1 is about the best you can get for rimfire rifles. Even the more costly super high end scopes offer nothing more than the Leupold for this model range. Gathering light an extra 5-10 mins at the end of the day is 1 of several advantages you get when you spend money on optics.

-Leupold’s standard multicoat lens system delivers a sight picture that’s rich in visual detail and contrast.
-Incredible ruggedness – tested to the same standards as all Golden Ring riflescopes.
-Absolute waterproof and fog proof integrity – each is ready for a lifetime in the field, in all conditions.
-The generous, forgiving eyebox for fast target acquisition.
-Covered by the Leupold Full Lifetime Guarantee

If someone thinks a Simmons or Bushnell scope is even remotely as good of optics, they dont understand what makes a scope good.

Bottom-line:

Any of them will work for you. Some are lifetime purchases that will hold up and keep true, others are not. I suggest you get what you want and like best so you will be happy in the end.

Prepare for Optimal Turkey Hunting Circumstances

Before you prepare to take aim, take the time to set up the right kinds of circumstances for success. Spend the day before you go hunting scouting out the location. Late afternoon is a good time to go turkey scouting. What exactly are you looking for? Look for signs of turkey activity, including, most importantly, turkey sounds. You will want to scout at least until nightfall. When it is dark, turkeys will fly up into the trees to roost for the night. They do this in the evening, close to dark. If you think you may have missed seeing the turkeys going to roost, but you suspect that they are up there in those darkened boughs, you can elicit a response by hooting like an owl or crowing like a bird. This is a good way to get a response from nearby turkeys. However, if you do not hear anything, do not despair. This does not mean that there are no turkeys up in the trees—they may be simply fast asleep or not in your immediate area of the woods. However, if you do hear a response, this means that you have successfully set up your hunting area for the next day. If you are able to make it a practice to note where the turkeys are roosting, you are much more likely to experience a fruitful hunting season the next day.

Finding the Perfect Location to Take Aim

One of the most successful parts of setting yourself up for turkey hunting success is to learn to use effective calling in a the right location. Cultivating a good box call or slate call is a great way to scout for turkeys. Let us say that it seems you have perfected the perfect yelp for attracting male turkeys. Where should you be in relation to the turkey in order to get the best possible shooting position? The best location you can find should ideally find you on equal elevation between you and the gobbler. Avoid calling a gobbler uphill. Calling a turkey downhill is usually not very productive, either.

Shooting Practice Pays Off in the Woods

Do not assume that your shotgun will allow you to shoot and hit every gobbler that comes your way. Your goal is not to wound or cripple a bird, which is what can potentially happen if you neglect to pattern your shotgun before the hunt. Before heading out to the woods, practice patterning your shotgun at 30 to 40 yards. You will ideally want to practice with a large piece of paper using a turkey head target. This will allow you to see the heart of your shotgun's pattern. Practice using different shot sizes, including 4, 5, or 6 shot. You will, of course, also want to practice judging distance. Using a decoy can also provide good shooting practice. You may want to place the decoy at a fair distance to help determine range. Don't be afraid to practice with aids, even if you have never tried these before. Colored beads, two-power scopes and laser dots can help eliminate misses.

Aiming to Hit – Tips that Get Results

Here are some general tips that can help you get the best possible shooting aim at all times. One of the most adequate types of shots can be had with a tightly choked 12 gauge with a number 6 premiums, and a 2-¾ inch of shot. This is a good choice for clean kills under 50 yards.

Scope of Rice Genome Project

INTRODUCTION

Rice has been cultivated for more than 9,000 years. Rice is a largest staple food crop worldwide that is an important food for half the world population providing 20% of calorific content. According to IRRI, World rice production in 2007 was approximately 645 million tons. At least 114 countries grow rice. Asian farmers produce about 90% of the total, with two countries, China and India, growing more than half the total crop. It is expected that the population in Asia will increase by 1.5 times or more in the next 10-20 years. The current production of major food crops is not sufficient to meet the growing demand so that millions of people all over the world are not getting sufficient meals every day. The world rice production must increase by 30% to keep pace with the growing population. However, decrease in farming land, reduction in the level of ground water, change in climate and global warming are resulting in the decreased yield of rice. Rice is also grain is fermented into wine, its straw makes cattle feed, paper, and ropes. Rice oil is used in soap and cosmetics, and seed hulls are used as a fuel. Rice consumes lot of water when compared to other crops. It typically uses up to three times more water than other food crops such as maize or wheat and consumes around 30 percent of the fresh water used for crops worldwide. In conditions where water is scarce, it is important to have crops that can give more yield using limited amounts of water.

Rice has the smallest genome size of all cereals, of around 430 million base pairs of DNA. Rice is considered a model system for plant biology largely due to its compact genome (430 million base pairs on its 12 chromosomes) and evolutionary relationships with other large-genome cereals, such as sorghum (750 Mb), maize (2,500 Mb), barley (5,000 Mb) and wheat (15,000 Mb). Rice is the first plant to be mapped in a working draft form. Rice is a model species for learning about traits such as yield, hybrid vigor, and single and multi-genic disease resistance of all monocots including wheat and corn. Studying the genes of rice is will help us to develop new varieties of rice that will produce greater yields, be more resistant to pests and disease, and grow in different types of climates and soils.

 

Rice Genome Project

Science and technology has taken a new turn in the field of agriculture especially in the case of cereal crops. Recent research works have paved a way for the production of more yields while the land available for cultivation is constantly decreasing. The sequencing of the rice genome is the greatest milestone, science has taken us to. Researchers are able to develop new variety of rice that is better in quality and more in yield. The rice researchers are also focusing on the developing rice varieties that are having better taste, aroma and high nutrition. This will also fetch good revenue to the farmers.

Genetic research on rice was started in 1990’s. The Rice Genome Research Program (RGP) was started in October 1991 and is an integral part of the Japanese Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (MAFF) Genome Research Project with the aim of finding the structure and function of the genome of the rice. It is jointly coordinated by the National Institute of Agro biological Sciences (NIAS), a government research institute under MAFF and the Society for Techno-innovation of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (STAFF), a semi-private research organization managed and supported by MAFF and a consortium of some twenty Japanese companies. The research is funded with yearly grants from MAFF and additional funds from the Japan Racing Association (JRA).The first phase of RGP continued till 1997. It was reorganized into a national project in 1998. The research was to analyze all the expressed genes in rice, construction of a genetic map and establishment of a physical map of the genome. Research activities were conducted at the STAFF Institute located in Tsukuba City, Ibaraki Prefecture, Japan, about 50 km northeast of Tokyo. During the first phase of the project from 1991 to 1997, STAFF successfully found nucleotide sequences of about 20,000 genes that were expressed in rice and they also established a high-density linkage map of rice with more than 3000 DNA markers accurately positioned in the genome. They reproduced more than 60% of the genome by using these markers to align DNA fragments cloned in yeast artificial chromosome (YAC). With the success of the first phase of the RGP, the MAFF planned for two large-scale projects from 1998 with the aim of completely sequencing rice genome. These projects focused on rice genome sequencing and functional characterization of the genome which later focused on mutant panel project and full-length cDNA project.

 The International Rice Genome Sequencing Project (IRGSP), a consortium of publicly funded laboratories, began in September 1997, at a workshop held in conjunction with the International Symposium on Plant Molecular Biology in Singapore, to obtain a high quality, map-based sequence of the rice genome using the cultivar Nipponbare of Oryza sativa ssp. japonica. IRGSP is comprised of ten members: Japan, India, United States of America, China, Taiwan, Korea, Thailand, France, Brazil, and the United Kingdom. The IRGSP adopts the clone-by-clone shotgun sequencing strategy so that each sequenced clone can be associated with a specific position on the genetic map and adheres to the policy of immediate release of the sequence data to the public domain. The largest IRGSP meeting was held on September 19 and 20, 2000 at Clemson University in South Carolina. Meeting was attended by more than 70 scientists and administrators from Japan, Taiwan, Thailand, Korea, China, India, Brazil, France, Canada, and the United States. The meeting was organized by Rod Wing, U.S. IRGSP Representative (Clem-son University), and chaired by Ben Burr, IRGSP Coordinator (Brookhaven National Laboratory, New York), and Takuji Sasaki, Program Director of the Rice Genome Research Program (RGP) in Japan.

Two complementary approaches were used, for construction of sequence-ready physical maps. The Rice Genome Research Program (RGP) used the genomic clones using expressed sequence tags/sequence-tagged sites (EST/STS) and genetic markers from the genetic and transcript maps of rice. The Clemson University Genomics Institute, the Arizona Genomics Institute, and the Arizona Genomics Computational Laboratory used a high-throughput bacterial artificial chromosome (BAC) fingerprint and automatic BAC contig assembly system using FPC software, and anchored the assembled contigs on the rice genome by hybridization-based screening. The rice genome project was completed in 2005. The completion of the rice genome sequence will be very helpful in the field of genetics and to combat most of the disease of the mostly consumed crop and also to differentiate between different rice varieties and also for the study of the other monocot crops.

 

The major events of rice genome project are:-

1991 – Rice genome Project started.

September 1997 - The International Rice Genome Sequencing Project (IRGSP) was formed.

4th April 2000 - Monsanto announced that the company had completed a working draft of the rice genome, which would be made     available to the IRGSP.

September 19 and 20, 2000 – The largest IRGSP meeting to date was held at Clemson University in South Carolina.

9th April 2000 - The University of Washington and China Released Genome Sequence of Rice.

The University of Washington (UW) rice genome project was directed by Dr. Leroy Hood and managed by Dr. Gregory G. Mahairas. The lab included 80 high-throughput DNA sequencers, robotic machines and powerful data processing computers. Monsanto Company financed the research project.

April 1, 2003 - The NIAS has established the Rice Genome Resource Center (RGRC).

December 2004 - The genome sequence of the japonica cultivar Nipponbare was completed by the IRGSP.

August 10, 2005 - On 10th August 2005 Rice Genome Project was completed. Researchers with the International Rice Genome Sequencing Project (IRGSP) published the "finished" DNA blueprint. It was published in Journal Nature on 11th August. It included the location and sequence of over 37,500 protein-encoding genes in 389 million bases of DNA. Rice is the first crop whose genome has been sequenced. Rice genome Project will give valuable information for all scientists worldwide. It will pave a new way for the production of rice resistant variety, more yielding variety. It will also be helpful for the scientists to study other crops that are closely related with the rice such as barley, corn, wheat etc.  After making the draft sequence of the japonica in 2002, the IRGSP scientists have increased the quality of the sequence to 95 percent complete at greater than 99 percent accuracy. By comparison, the 3 billion-base-pair human genome, with its 25,000 genes, reached that quality level in 2004, some 3 years after its draft sequence was completed.

 

August 11, 2005 - The results of Rice Genome Project were published in the issue of Nature.

 

Major Works:-

July 2002 - the genome of rice blast disease was sequenced. Rice blast disease destroys enough rice to feed 60 million people worldwide. This finding will help in understanding the nature of the disease and will take us to a solution for the rice blast disease so that we can stop the destruction of rice by rice blast disease.

Jan 2003   - Research found that about 40% of rice genome comprises repetitive DNA, known as Junk DNA, similar to that of MITEs. A 430 bp sequence was found to be identical to that of MITE in size and other characteristics. It was named as mPing or miniature ping.  japonica rice contains about 70copies of mping while indica rice about 14 copies.

June 2003 - Scientists Buell, Wing and their colleagues compared the proteins of the chromosome 10 with Arabidopsis. Chromosome 10 is the smallest chromosome in rice. They found that about two-third of proteins were similar between both the plants. This similarity was with respect to the long arm of chromosome 10, the short arm being little or no matching. These proteins were produced to bind nucleic acid, cell growth and maintenance, immunity against pathogens and for other biological processes. Researchers also found that on Chromosome 10, 43 different genes were clustered in groups of three. These genes will help the rice to fight against pathogens.

March 2007 - Meyer and his colleagues examined the normal gene expression as well as small ribonucleic acids in rice. They studied gene sequences that represented nearly 47 million mRNA molecules and 3 million small RNA. They found that small RNA plays an important role in gene regulation. "Small RNAs also have been associated with other important biological processes, such as responses to stress," Meyers said. "Many of small RNAs in rice have related sequences in the many important cereal crop plants, including maize and wheat."

October 2007 - Already around 1 billion people have no access to drinking water. It is expected that the demand for rice will increase by 40% by 2040 causing severe water crisis problem study was conducted to grow rice with less water. The study found that the system of rice intensification (SRI) method has helped increase yields by over 30% — four to five tonnes per hectare instead of three tonnes per hectare, while using 40% less water than conventional methods. Another advantage is SRI fields do not emit methane as is the case with the more conventional system of growing rice. Conventional method of rice cultivation uses 60-70 kilos of seeds per hectare; SRI requires just five kilos per hectare. The SRI was based on eight principles which are different to conventional rice cultivation. They include developing nutrient-rich and un-flooded nurseries instead of flooded ones; ensuring wider spacing between rice seedlings; preferring composts or manure to synthetic fertilizers; and managing water carefully to avoid that the plants’ roots are not saturated. If the SRI method was applied to 20 million hectares of land under rice cultivation in India, the country could meet its food grain objectives of 220 million tonnes of grain by 2012 instead of 2050. A conference was held from 3-5 October in Tripura. The conference was jointly organized by the Department of Agriculture of the Government of Tripura, the Directorate of Rice Research (DRR), the Central Rice Research Institute (CRRI), the Directorate of Rice Development (DRD), the Acharya NG Ranga Agriculture University (ANGRAU), the National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development (NABARD), Sir Dorabji Tata Trust (SDTT) Mumbai and World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF)-ICRISAT Dialogue Project based at ICRISAT, Patancheru.  Professor Andy Pereira at the Virginia Bioinformatics Institute (VBI) also worked with colleagues in India, Indonesia, Israel, Italy, Mexico and The Netherlands to identify, characterize and make use of a gene known as HARDY that improves key features of this important grain crop. The research shows that HARDY contributes to more efficient water use in rice, a primary source of food for more than half of the world's population.

August 2007 - Cell and molecular biology major Tameka Bailey’s studied certain type of proteins and the molecular mechanisms that trigger rice’s response to stressful conditions, such as drought, high salinity and also to rice blast.  “The proteins have so much power in the cell, it’s amazing,” Bailey said. “They can change the whole fate of the plant.” Bailey also studied proteins called mitogen-activated protein kinases. These proteins regulate the plants’ response to external stimuli, such as drought or disease. The particular type of kinase Bailey studied is the last one in a cascade of kinases that convert signals from receptors into responses from the plant. She found that these proteins regulate the plants’ production of an acid called abscisic acid, which led to stress tolerance in drought and high salinity conditions, a trait that appears to be conserved in other types of plants. Bailey isolated and characterized these proteins, which are responsible for activating the plant’s response to stress. To give rice plants a boost in their ability to tolerate stressful conditions, Bailey used genetic engineering to create plants that would express a great deal of the protein. To do this, she inserted extra copies of the protein kinase DNA into the DNA of a rice plant. The transgenic rice plant then expressed an abundance of that particular protein. In contrast, Bailey produced transgenic plants where the protein kinase was suppressed to see how the plants responded to stress in the absence of the protein of interest. Her studies showed that the extra boost of protein kinases led to increased drought tolerance. “Those traits are really important to rice farmers,” Bailey said. “Making a direct contribution to this is really a plus to my work.”

 

CONCLUSION

Rice genome Project which was completed in 2005 has paved a way for new research. It is a model plant for cereal crops. Sequencing of its genome has opened a way for developing new varieties of rice to combat the pests and also to grow with less water. RGP will also help to produce more proteins in rice that can be beneficial to mankind (ex. golden rice). Finding of new proteins and the genes for blast disease will help to produce more yields by manipulating the gene responsible for blast disease.

Burger King

History
Main article: History of Burger King

The predecessor to what is now the international fast food restaurant chain Burger King was founded in 1953 in Jacksonville, Florida, as Insta-Burger King. The original founders and owners, Keith J. Kramer and his wife's uncle Matthew Burns, opened their first stores around a piece of equipment known as the Insta-Broiler. The Insta-Broiler oven proved so successful at cooking burgers, they required all of their franchises to carry the device. After the original company began to falter in 1959, it was purchased by its Miami, Florida franchisees James McLamore and David R. Edgerton. The two initiated a corporate restructuring of the chain, the first step was to rename the company Burger King. The duo ran the company as an independent entity for eight years, eventually expanding to over 250 locations in the United States, when they sold it to the Pillsbury Company in 1967. Pillsbury's management made several attempts at reorganization or restructuring of the restaurant chain in the late 1970s and early 1980s. The most prominent change came in 1978; Burger King hired McDonald's executive Donald N. Smith to help revamp the company. In a plan called Operation Phoenix, Smith initiated a restructuring of all franchising agreements to give the company more oversight of its franchises,broadened its product offerings by adding new items to its menu, and laid out new store designs to standardize the look and feel of the company. While these efforts were initially effective, many of them were eventually discarded resulting in Burger King falling into a fiscal slump that damaged financial performance of both Burger King and its parent. Poor operating performance and ineffectual leadership continued to bog the company down for many years, even after it was acquired in 1989 by the British entertainment conglomerate Grand Metropolitan and its successor Diageo. Eventually, the institutional neglect of the brand by Diageo damaged the company to the point where major franchises were driven out of business and its total value was significantly decreased. Diageo eventually decided to divest itself of the money-losing chain and put the company up for sale in 2000.

In 2002, a troika of private equity firms led by TPG Capital, L.P with associates Bain Capital and Goldman Sachs Capital Partners agreed to purchase Burger King from Diageo for $1.5 billion (USD), with the sale becoming complete in December of that year.The new owners, through several new CEOs, have since moved to revitalize and reorganize the company, the first major move was to re-name the Burger King parent as Burger King Brands. The investment group initially planned to take BK public within the two years of the acquisition; this action was delayed until 2006 due to several reasons including the failure of its largest franchisee, AmeriKing. In May 2006 TPG took the chain public with a successful $425 million (USD) initial public offering (IPO), the largest for a U.S.-based restaurant in history at the time.

Some of the structural changes Burger King underwent under the ownership group's watch were new advertising agency that created a series of new ad campaigns, a revamped menu strategy that focused on male consumers, a series of programs designed to revamp individual stores, and a new restaurant concept called the BK Whopper Bar. These changes led a score of consecutive profitable quarters for the company between March 2004 and March 2009 that successfully re-energizing the company. Despite this, the slowing of the economy during the financial crisis of 2007-2010 caused the chain's business to decline while its immediate competitors McDonald's grew.

The latest chapter in the company's ownership history began in September 2010 when TPG and its partners announced it would sell their 31% stake in Burger King to another private equity company, 3G Capital, for $24 (USD) per share, or $3.26 billion (USD). The offer, representing a 46% premium over the stocks selling price at the time, came as a surprise to Burger King CEO John Chidsey. The proposed sale is expected to help the company repair its fundamental business structures and continue working to close the gap with McDonald's. Analysts commenting on the transaction stated that 3G will have to invest heavily in the company to help reverse its fortunes. David Palmer from UBS stated the company will need to work with its large group of franchise owners to brighten its locations and stabilize sales which could take several years and require significant reinvestment, while Steve West of Stifel Nicolaus stated that Burger King will need at least a year to right its fundamentals. After the deal was completed, the company's stock was removed from the New York Stock Exchange ending a four year period as a public company.

While BK began its foray into locations outside of the continental United States in 1963 with a store in San Juan, Puerto Rico, it did not have an international presence until several years later. Shortly after the acquisition of the chain by Pillsbury, it opened its first international restaurant in Windsor, Ontario, Canada in 1969.Other international locations followed soon after: Oceania in 1971 and Europe in 1975 with a restaurant in Madrid, Spain.Beginning in 1982, BK and its franchisees began operating stores in several East Asian countries, including Japan, Taiwan, Singapore and South Korea.Due to high competition, all of the Japanese locations were closed in 2001, however BK reentered the Japanese market in June 2007. BK's Central and South American operations began in Mexico in the late 1970s and by the early 1980s in Caracas, Venezuela, Santiago, Chile and Buenos Aires, Argentina. While Burger King lags behind McDonald's in international locations by over 12,000 stores, it has managed to become the largest chain in several countries including Mexico and Spain. To assist in its international expansion, Burger King has established several subsidiaries to develop strategic partnerships and alliances to expand into new territories; in Europe, Burger King's subsidiary Burger King Europe GmbH is responsible for the licensing and development of BK franchises in the that market, Africa and Western Asia. In Asia, the BK AsiaPac, PTE. Ltd. business unit handles franchising for East Asia, the Asian subcontinent and all Oceanic territories except Australia.

Australia is the only country in which Burger King does not operate under its own name. When the company set about establishing operations down under in 1971, it found that its business name was already trademarked by a takeaway food shop in Adelaide. As a result, Burger King provided the Australian franchisee, Jack Cowin, with a list of possible alternative names derived from pre-existing trademarks already registered by Burger King and its then corporate parent Pillsbury that could be used to name the Australian restaurants. Cowin selected the "Hungry Jack" brand name, one of Pillsbury's US pancake mixture products, and slightly changed the name to a possessive form by adding an apostrophe 's' forming the new name Hungry Jack's. After the expiration of the trademark in the late 1990s, Burger King unsuccessfully tried to introduce the brand to the continent. After losing a lawsuit filed against it by Hungry Jack's ownership, the company ceded the territory to its franchisee.

Over the ten year period starting in 2008, Burger King predicted 80% of its market share would be driven by foreign expansion, particularly in the Asia-Pacific and Indian subcontinent regional markets. While the TPG-lead group continued BK's international expansion by announcing plans to open new franchise locations in Eastern Europe, Africa and the Middle East, and Brazil, the company plans to focus on the three largest markets, India, China and Japan.The company plans to add over 250 stores in these Asian territories, as well as other countries such as Macau, by the end of 2012. Its expansion into the Indian market has the company at a competitive disadvantage with other fast food restaurants such as KFC because the country's large Hindu majority's aversion to beef. BK hopes to use their recent non-beef products, such as their TenderCrisp and TenderGrill sandwiches, as well as other products to help them overcome this hurdle to expand in that country.

At the end of its fiscal 2010 year, Burger King is the second largest chain of hamburger fast food in terms of restaurant locations restaurants in the world behind industry bellwether McDonald's (32,400 locations) and the fourth largest fast food restaurant chain overall after Yum! Brands (37,000 locations), McDonald's and Subway (32,000 locations).

Franchises
Main article: Burger King franchises
Burger King restaurant in Leicester Square, London, United Kingdom

When Burger King Corporation began franchising in 1959, it relied on a regional franchising model where franchisees would purchase the right to open stores within a defined geographic region.These franchise agreements granted BKC very little oversight control over its franchisees and resulted in issues of product quality control, store image and design and operations procedures.

During the 1970s structural deficiencies in Burger King's franchise system became increasingly problematic for Pillsbury. A major example was the relationship between Burger King and Louisiana-based franchisee Chart House, Burger King's largest franchisee group at the time with over 350 locations in the United States. The company's owners William and James Trotter made several moves to take over or acquire Burger King during the seventies, all of which were spurned by Pillsbury. After the failed attempts to acquire the company, the relationship between Chart House and Burger King soured and eventually devolved into in a lawsuit. Chart House eventually spun off its Burger King operations in the early 1980s into a holding company called DiversiFoods, which in turn was acquired by Pillsbury in 1984 and folded into Burger King's operations.

This franchising model remained in place until 1978 when Donald N. Smith arrived in the company the company. Smith initiated a restructuring of all future franchising agreements, disallowing new owners from living more than one hour from their restaurants, preventing corporations from owning franchises and prohibiting franchisees from operating other chains. This new policy effectively limited the size of franchisees and prevented larger franchises from challenging Burger King Corporation as Chart House had. Smith also sought to have BKC be the primary owner of new locations and rent or lease the restaurants to its franchises. This policy would allow the company to take over the operations of failing stores or evict those owners who would not conform to the company guidelines and policies. By 1988 BKC parent Pillsbury had relaxed many of Smith's changes, scaled back on construction of new locations and stalled growth. Neglect of Burger King by new owner Grand Met, and its successor Diageo, further hurt the standing of the brand, causing significant financial damage to BK franchises and straining relations between the two parties.

By 2001 and after nearly eighteen years of stagnant growth, the state of its franchises was beginning to affect the value of the company. One of the franchises most heavily impacted by the lack of growth was the nearly 400 store AmeriKing; by 2001 the company, which until this point had been struggling under a nearly $300 million (USD) debt load and been shedding store across the US, was forced to enter Chapter 11 bankruptcy. The failure of AmeriKing deeply affected the value of Burger King, and put negotiations between Diaego and the TPC Capital-lead group on hold. The developments eventually forced Diaego to lower the total selling price of the chain by almost three quarters of a billion dollars. After the sale, newly appointed CEO Bradley Blum initiated a program to help roughly 20% of its franchises, including its four largest, who were in financial distress, bankruptcy or had ceased operations altogether. Partnering with the California-based Trinity Capital, LLC, the company established the Franchisee Financial Restructuring Initiative, a program to address the financial issues facing BK's financially distressed franchisees. The initiative was designed to assist franchisees in restructuring their businesses in order to meet financial obligations, focus on restaurant operational excellence, reinvest in their operations and return to profitability.

Individual owners took advantage of the AmeriKing failure; one of BK's regional owners, Miami-based Al Cabrera, purchased 130 stores located primarily in the Chicago and the upper mid-west region, from the failed company for a price of $16 million (USD), approximately 88% of their original value. The new company, which started out as Core Value Partners and eventually became Heartland Foods, also purchased 120 additional stores from distressed owners and revamped them. The resulting purchases made Mr. Cabrerra the largest minority franchisee of Burger King and Heartland one of the company's top franchises. By 2006, the company was valued at over $150 million (USD), and was sold to New York–based GSO Capital Partners. Other purchasers included a three way group of NFL athletes Kevin Faulk, Marcus Allen and Michael Strahan who collectively purchased 17 stores in the cities of Norfolk and Richmond, Virginia; and Cincinnati-based franchisee Dave Devoy, who purchased 32 AmeriKing stores. After investing in new decor, equipment and staff retraining, many of the formerly failing stores have shown growth approaching 20%.

Legal issues
Main articles: Burger King legal issues and Burger King (Mattoon, Illinois)

Burger King has been involved in several legal disputes and cases, as both plaintiff and defendant, in the years since its founding in 1954. Situations involving these many legal topics have affected almost every aspect of the company's operations. Depending on the ownership and executive staff at the time of these incidents, the company's responses to these challenges have ranged from a conciliatory dialog with its critics and litigants to a more aggressive opposition with questionable tactics and negative consequences. The company's response to these various issues has drawn praise as well as accusations of political appeasement from different parties over the years.

Controversies and disputes have arisen with groups such as People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), governmental and social agencies, and unions and trade groups over various topics. These situations have touched on legal and moral concepts such as animal rights, corporate responsibility, ethics, and social justice. While the majority of the disputes did not result in lawsuits, in many of the cases the situations raised legal questions, dealt with legal compliance, or resulted in legal remedies such as changes in contractual procedure or binding agreements between parties. The resolutions to these legal matters have often altered the way the company interacts and negotiates contracts with its suppliers and franchisees or how it does business with the public.

Further controversies have occurred during the company's expansion in the Middle East. The opening of a Burger King location in the Israeli-occupied territories lead to a breach of contract dispute between Burger King and its Israeli franchise; the dispute eventually erupted into a geopolitical conflagration involving Muslim and Jewish groups on multiple continents over the application of and adherence to international law. The case eventually elicited reactions from the members of the 22-nation Arab League; the Islamic countries within the League made a joint threat to the company of legal sanctions including the revocation of Burger King's business licenses within the member states' territories. A related issue involving members of the Islamic faith over the interpretation of the Muslim version of canon law, Shariah, regarding the promotional artwork on a dessert package in the United Kingdom raised issues of cultural sensitivity, and, with the former example, posed a larger question about the lengths that companies must go to insure the smooth operation of their businesses in the communities they serve.

A trademark dispute involving the owners of the identically named Burger King in Mattoon, Illinois led to a federal lawsuit; the case's outcome helped define the scope of the Lanham act and trademark law in the United States. An existing trademark held by a shop of the same name in South Australia forced the company to change its name in Australia, while another state trademark in Texas forced the company to abandon its signature product, the Whopper, in several counties around San Antonio. Legal decisions from other suits have set contractual law precedents in regards to long-arm statutes, the limitations of franchise agreements, and ethical business practices; many of these decisions have helped define general business dealings that continue to shape the entire marketplace.

Charitable contributions and services

Burger King has two of its own in-house national charitable organizations and programs. One is the Have It Your Way Foundation, a U.S.-based non-profit, 501(c)(3) corporation with multiple focuses on hunger alleviation, disease prevention and community education through scholarship programs at colleges in the US. The other charitable organization is the McLamore Foundation, also a non-profit, 501(c)(3) corporation that provides scholarships to students in the US and its territories.Additionally, there is an optional literacy program that partners individual restaurants with community schools in the US.

In various regions across the United States, Burger King and its franchises have aligned themselves with several charitable organizations that support research and treatment of juvenile cancer. Each year these coalitions hold a fund raising drive called A Chance for Kids, in which Burger King restaurants sell lottery-style scratch cards for $1 (USD). Each card produces a winning prize that is usually a food or beverage product, but includes (rarer) items such as shopping sprees or trips. In the Northeast, BK has affiliated itself with the Major League Baseball team the Boston Red Sox and its charitable foundation, the Jimmy Fund. The group runs the contest in Boston. In the New York city area it operates the contest in association with the Burger King Children's Charities of Metro New York and the New York Yankees. Funds raised in these areas go to support the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute located in Boston. In Nebraska, the company is affiliated with the Liz's Legacy Cancer Fund BK Beat Cancer for Kids program at the UNMC Eppley Cancer Center at the University of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha. In the Pittsburgh region it funded the establishment of the Burger King Cancer Caring Center, a support organization for the families and friends of cancer patients.

Products
Main article: Burger King products
The Whopper sandwich, Burger King's signature product

When the predecessor of Burger King first opened in Jacksonville in 1953, its menu consisted predominantly of basic hamburgers, french fries, soft drinks, milkshakes and desserts. After being acquired by its Miami, Florida franchisees and renamed to its current moniker in 1954, BK began expanding the breadth of its menu by adding the Whopper sandwich in 1957. This quarter pound (4 oz (110 g)) hamburger was created by Burger King's new owners James McLamore and David Edgerton as a way to differentiate BK from other burger outlets at the time. Since its inception, the Whopper has become synonymous with Burger King and become the focus of much of its advertising. The company has even named its new kiosk-style restaurants Whopper Bars.

After being brought on in 1978, one of Donald N. Smith's first changes to the menu was the addition of the Burger King Specialty sandwich line in 1979, which significantly expanded the breadth of the BK menu with many non-hamburger sandwiches including new chicken and fish offerings. The new specialty sandwich line was one of the first attempts to target a specific demographic, in this case adults 18-34, members of which would be willing to spend more on a higher quality product. One of Smith's other significant contributions to the menu was the addition of a breakfast product line, which until this time was not a market Burger King had entered. Besides the addition of the Croissan'Wich in 1983, the breakfast menu remained almost identical to the McDonald's offerings until a menu revamp in 1985. This expansion introduced BK's Am Express product line which added new products such as French toast sticks and Mini-muffins.

As the company expanded both inside and outside the US, it introduced localized versions of its products that conform to regional tastes and cultural or religious beliefs. International variations add ingredients such as teriyaki or beetroot and fried egg to the Whopper, beer in Germany, Italy and Spain, and halal or kosher products in the middle East and Israel. To generate additional sales, BK will occasionally introduce limited time offers (LTOs) that are versions of its core products or new products intended for either long or short term sales. Items such as the Texas Double Whopper and various sandwiches made with mushrooms and Swiss cheese have been rotated in and out of its menu for several years, while products such as its 1993 Meatloaf Specialty Sandwich offering and accompanying limited table service along with special dinner platters, failed to generate interest and were discontinued.

In order to appeal to as many demographic groups as possible and better compete with its fast food restaurant competitor Wendy's, Burger King added a multi-tiered value menu in 1993 with items priced at 99¢, $1.99 and $2.99 (USD). The project, called Operation Phoenix, was an attempt to add not only a value menu but a line of value meals. The tiered menu was replaced with a more standard value menu in 1998, while the value meals were separated into their own menu segment. This value menu featured seven products: Whopper Jr., 5 piece Chicken Tenders, a bacon cheeseburger, medium sized french fries, medium soft drink, medium onion rings and small shake. In 2002 and 2006, BK revamped its value menu adding and removing several different products such as chili and its Rodeo Cheeseburger. Many of these items have since been discontinued, modified or relegated to a regional menu option. To better appeal to a more adult palate and demographic, BK introduced several new products to its menu in 2003, including several new or revamped chicken products, a new salad line and its BK Joe brand of coffee. Some of the new products, including its Enormous Omelet Sandwich line and the BK Stacker line, brought negative attention due the large portion size, amounts of unhealthy fats and trans-fats. Many of these products feature higher quality ingredients like whole chicken breast, Angus beef, natural cheeses such as Cheddar and pepper jack.Again, not all these products, such as the BK Baguette line, have met corporate sales expectations.

Like its menu, the equipment the company cooks its hamburgers with has also evolved as the company grew. The burgers have always been broiled mechanically; the original unit, called an Insta-Broiler, was the primary piece of equipment Insta-Burger King was founded around. When McLamore and Edgerton took over the company, besides dropping the "Insta-" prefix, they switched to an improved unit, which they called a "Flame Broiler". Designed by the two and featuring stationary burners that cooked the meat on a moving chain, the unit broke down less often while maintaining a similar cooking rate.The company would stay with that model for the next forty years until Burger King began developing a variable speed broiler that could handle multiple items with different cooking speeds and times. These new unit began testing in 1999 and eventually evolved into two models the company has deployed system-wide in 2008-2009. Accompanying these new broilers was new holding equipment was a computer based product monitoring system for its cooked products. The monitoring system allows for more concise tracking of product quality giving the company and its franchisees to streamline costs by more preciously projecting sales and usage.

Advertising
Main article: Burger King advertising

Burger King has employed varied advertising programs, both successful and unsuccessful, since its foundation in 1954. During the 1970s, output included a memorable jingle, the inspiration for its current mascot the Burger King and several well known and parodied slogans such as Have it your way and It takes two hands to handle a Whopper. Burger King introduced the first attack ad in the fast food industry with the then unknown Sarah Michelle Gellar in 1981. The television spot, which claimed BK burgers were larger and better tasting than competitor McDonald's, so enraged executives at McDonald's parent company, they sued all parties involved. Starting in the early 1980s and running through approximately 2001, BK engaged a series of ad agencies that produced many unsuccessful slogans and programs, including its biggest advertising flop Where's Herb?.

Burger King was a pioneer in the advertising practice known as the product tie-in with a successful partnering with George Lucas' Lucasfilm, Ltd. to promote the 1977 film Star Wars in which BK sold a set of glasses featuring the main characters from the film. This promotion was one of the first in the fast food industry and set the pattern that continues to the present. BK's early success in the field was overshadowed by a 1982 deal between McDonald's and the Walt Disney Company to promote Disney's animated films beginning in the mid 1980s and running through the early 1990s. In 1994 Disney switched from McDonald's to Burger King, signing a ten film promotional contract which would include such top ten films as Aladdin (1992), Beauty and the Beast (1991), The Lion King (1994) and Toy Story (1995). A partnership in association with the Pokémon franchise at the height of its popularity in 1999 was one of the most successful in the industry, rivaled only by McDonald's/Ty Beanie Babies cross-promotion in 1999–2000.

Shortly after the acquisition of Burger King by TPG Capital, L.P. in 2002, its newly hired CEO Bradley (Brad) Blum set about turning around the fortunes of the company by initiating an overhaul of its flailing advertising programs. One of the first moves by the company was to reinstate its famous Have it your way slogan as the corporate motto. BK handed the effort off to its new advertising agency, Miami-based Crispin Porter + Bogusky (abbreviated as CP+B). CP+B was known for having a hip, subversive tack when creating campaigns for its clients, exactly what BK was looking for. One of CP+B strategies was to revive the Burger King character used during BKs 1970s/1980s Burger King Kingdom children's advertising campaign as a caricatured variation now simply called "the King". The farcical nature of the Burger King centered advertisements inspired an internet meme where the King is photoshopped into unusual situations that are either comical or menacing, many times followed with the phrase Where is your God now?.

Additionally, CP+B created a series new characters like the Subservient Chicken and the faux nu metal band Coq Roq featured in a series of viral web-based advertisements on sites such as MySpace and various BK corporate pages to compliment the various television and print promotional campaigns. One of the unique promotions that CP+B devised was the creation of a series of three advergames for the Xbox 360. Featuring company celebrity spokesman Brooke Burke, the games sold more than 2 million copies, placing them as one of the top selling games along with another Xbox 360 hit, Gears of War. These ad campaigns, coupled with other new promotions and a series of new product introductions, drew positive and negative attention to BK and helped TPG and its partners realize about $367 million (USD) in dividends.

Headquarters
Company headquarters in unincorporated Miami-Dade County, Florida

Burger King is headquartered in a nine-story office tower by Miami International Airport in unincorporated Miami-Dade County, Florida. Elaine Walker of the Miami Herald stated that the headquarters has a "Burger King" sign that drivers on Florida State Road 836 "can't miss." In addition the chain planned to build a neon sign on the roof to advertise the brand to passengers landing at the airport. 130 employees began working at the Burger King headquarters on Monday July 8, 2002, with the remainder to move in prases in August 2002. Prior to the moving to its current headquarters in 2002, Burger King had considered moving away from the Miami area; Miami-Dade County politicians and leaders lobbied against this, and Burger King stayed in the area.

The company's previous headquarters were in a southern Dade County campus described by Walker as "sprawling" and "virtually hidden away." The former headquarters were located in the Cutler census-designated place; since then the area incorporated into the Village of Palmetto Bay. The former Burger King headquarters as of 2007 houses rental offices for several companies.

By 2006 Burger King had announced that it planned to move its headquarters to a proposed office building in Coral Gables. By 2007 Burger King instead renewed the lease in its existing headquarters for 15 years. Burger King planned to consolidate employees working at an area near Miami International Airport and at a Dadeland Mall-area facility into the current headquarters by June of that year. Instead Bacardi USA leased the headquarter complex, a 15-story building.

Ruger Mini 14 scopes? What should I purchase?

I have a mini 14 that came with ghost rings and want to get a scope for it.

I'm really not that familiar with scopes. What do you recommend?

What are fiber optic scopes or red dot sights?

Suggestions?

Hi ---- Ruger Mini 14 hmmm..... My favorite rifle! Fiber-optic sights are nice if you get a nice one but those can cost a small fortune for a good one.... The Red Dot sights are allright if your doing close up shooting.... A good all around scope would be a 3-9X40..... Dont get one more powerful than that. The Ruger Mini 14 gives minute of paper plate accuracy at 200 yards. A scope more powerful would see beyond the capabilitys of the rifle.... I have Nikon scopes on both my Ruger Mini 14 and Mini 30 rifles.... Nikon has given me excellent results..... The Mini 14 isnt what I would call a sub MOA accurate rifle but its plenty accurate for deer, coyote, woodchuck, etc, etc out to 150 yards with decent brass cased ammo..... See the link that also has a very informative video...
