Trudy’s is a local Tex-Mex restaurant and bar in Austin, Texas. It’s is well known for its fabulous Tex-Mex and great drinks including the famous Mexican martini. It has three primary locations and one “sister” café. There is the “North Star” location at Burnet and 183, the “Texas Star” location at 30th and Guadalupe, and the “South Star” location at Little TX Lane and IH-35. The sister is called the South Congress Café which is also locally owned by the same owners. Trudy’s is moderately priced for the great quality of food, drinks, and service. It’s casual but fun environment attracts a variety of guests which results in a very high-volume restaurant. The service is extraordinary, despite the occasional glitch in which case the management does a fabulous job in taking care of. It seems as though Trudy’s tries to exceed all the expectations of its guests to keep them more than happy and always willing to come back. The menu at Trudy’s has a decent variety of food to offer, all for an affordable price. Other than the typical Tex-Mex, (tacos, enchiladas, nachos etc…) they have items from salads, to chicken fried steak, to fish and shrimp tacos, to stuffed avocados, to mango tilapia quesadillas. Some items on the menu that are found at other Tex-Mex or Mexican restaurants are typically served with better quality at Trudy’s. From personal experience, I’ve had “flaquities” at Serranos as well as at Trudy’s and Trudy’s won by a long shot. Not only that, but I’ve also had enchiladas at Tres Amigos and Trudy’s, and again, Trudy’s wasn’t comparable. The food always comes out in less than 20 minutes and is typically still steaming, depending on what was ordered. They also have two monthly specials along with different daily specials for each day of the week. The prices for food items are very moderately priced, none exceeding about $10 or $11. This keeps people coming back…...

...not know the bit transmitted. Thus, Bob knows the one-time pad starts with 01011001, from Fig. 8-5(e) but all Trudy has is 01?1??0?, from Fig. 8-5(g). Of course, Alice and Bob are aware that Trudy may have captured part of their one-time pad, so they would like to reduce the information Trudy has. They can do this by performing a transformation on it. For example, they could divide the one-time pad into blocks of 1024 bits and square each one to form a 2048-bit number and use the concatenation of these 2048-bit numbers as the one-time pad. With her partial knowledge of the bit string transmitted, Trudy has no way to generate its square and so has nothing. The transformation from the original one-time pad to a different one that reduces Trudy's knowledge is called privacy amplification. In practice, complex transformations in which every output bit depends on every input bit are used instead of squaring. Poor Trudy. Not only does she have no idea what the one-time pad is, but her presence is not a secret either. After all, she must relay each received bit to Bob to trick him into thinking he is talking to Alice. The trouble is, the best she can do is transmit the qubit she received, using the polarization she used to receive it, and about half the time she will be wrong, causing many errors in Bob's one-time pad. When Alice finally starts sending data, she encodes it using a heavy forward-error-correcting code. From Bob's point of view, a 1-bit error in the one-time pad is...

...go with them. As an advertiser, you work with perceived need and actual use. Concentrate the problem For example: Gertrude advertises long-lasting men’s socks. It’s hard to get the prospect interested in them, because he wears out socks only occasionally. Previously, Gerty’s company ran an ad showing a toe coming through a sock, and it stank. To get any kind of attention from the prospect, Gerta needs to condense occurrences of the problem. Here is Gertrudy’s new ad: Close-up of a guy with five bad socks in front of him. Headline: “Darn these socks!” By compounding the problem, Gertruda gets the reader to think, “That’s me. I’m in that same wretched situation.” He resolves to do something about his sock problem, and he takes advantage of Trudy’s limited-time offer. More on this: Ger woke the prospect up by getting him to put together those annoying “there’s a hole in my sock” moments. That made him more inclined to take action. If G-lady did what some advertisers do - show the problem normally - the ad wouldn’t affect anyone. Moral: There is a direct ratio between how much impact you deliver and how many responses you receive. They are dissatisfied Your coworker Ney Sayer wants to discourage you. He says, “People are happy with what they have. They’re not going to respond.” Most of the time, Ney is wrong. 49 Advertising for Results Chapter 3.

Ice Cream

...Creamery and Marble Slab Creamery, Amy’s image and brand recognition allow separation from the competition. Austin culture thrives from its “Keeps Austin Weird” mantra which was coined by Red Wassenich and the Austin Independent Business Alliance to support the rise of small businesses. However, the slogan is no longer limited to only small businesses as the citizens of Austin have found a sense of pride and identity behind these words (Yonan). In turn, Amy’s Ice Creams embodies this same motto by sporting store locations with offbeat decorations, non-mainstream music, and eccentric employees. Since its first store opening in 1984, Amy’s has slowly gained popularity and has become a staple of Austin living along with other favorites like Trudy’s and P. Terry’s. Diverse Customer Base While the atmosphere at an Amy’s Ice Creams location is enough to draw crowds, there are still other appeals that keep customers faithful. At the heart of their business, the company boasts delicious-tasting products, but loyal customers are also paying for the experience. One can see from the huge Friday night crowds that Amy’s Ice Creams is a popular hangout spot where groups of friends can sit and chat for a couple of hours while enjoying their favorite ice cream. Another edge over its competition is the fact that Amy’s is locally owned and operated. A lot of Austin businesses are community-driven, and Amy Simmons knew that the citizens of Austin would appreciate a locally owned ice cream......

...representation in the film is small, I nevertheless found it disconcerting that the person who complained about all the white people being bad did not notice that the bad people were not all white. For me, watching those people of color eagerly fighting against the Na’vi as part of the mercenary army sparked a series of questions: what brought them to Pandora in the first place? Did they, like Jake, feel pressured by circumstances beyond their control? Were they thirsty to “fight terror with terror” like their commander? What is it that drives those who are ostracized, oppressed and “othered” in their own social system to ostracize, oppress and “other” those with whom they share the most in common? In light of these lingering questions, Trudy’s decision to fight alongside the Omaticaya intrigued me. Despite not having personal experiences with the Na’vi, she recognizes the savagery of the acts committed against them, and acknowledges the disjunction between what she signed up to do and what her superiors were asking of her. What enables her to see the injustice when most of her 3 peers do not and leads her to resist until the end? The film provides very little if any clues, but I like to think that her own social location as a woman and a person of color—as another kind of outsider—helped her finally relate to the Na’vi’s struggle and compelled her to take a stand. To the critique that the film portrayed military and corporate personnel as people lacking substance and......

Her parents are divorced, and her mother and father, Rudy, fight whenever her father shows up at her home. Joy's older half-sister, Peggy, is an overachiever who constantly humiliates Joy in front of her children. Peggy and Joy's father Rudy are very close. Joy's mother encourages Joy to give up her dreams of becoming a successful inventor although her grandmother and her best friend Jackie believe she will pursue her ideas and become a strong successful woman. After divorcing his third wife, Joy's father starts dating Trudy, a wealthy Italian widow with some business experience. While on Trudy's boat, Joy drops a glass of red wine, attempts to mop up the mess, and cuts her hands on the broken glass while wringing the mop. Joy returns home and creates blueprints for a self-wringing mop. She builds a prototype with help from the employees at her father's shop. She then convinces Trudy to invest in the product. They make a deal with a company in California to manufacture the mop's parts at a low price. In order to avoid a potential lawsuit, Joy also pays $50,000 in royalties to a man in Hong Kong who supposedly has created a similar product. When the company repeatedly bills Joy for faulty parts they create, Joy refuses to pay the fees and tells her father, Trudy, and Peggy not to pay them. Joy is advised by Trudy to take out......
