Burger King grilled chicken sandwiches

The fast-food restaurant chain Burger King was the first major fast food chain to introduce a grilled chicken sandwich to the marketplace, in 1990, six months before Wendy's and four years before McDonald's. Since Burger King, its Australian franchise Hungry Jack's have offered a variety of grilled chicken sandwiches, as have Wendy's and McDonald's, their first grilled chicken sandwich, the BK Broiler, was one of the most successful product introductions in the fast food industry ever. It was reformulated as the Chicken Whopper, named after their Whopper Sandwich; that was replaced by the BK Baguette, promoted as health-oriented, in turn replaced with the larger, meatier TenderGrill sandwich, targeted to more sophisticated, adult customers, notably 24- to 36-year-old males. The company sells different variants in different markets, using white meat chicken breast in some regions while using dark meat chicken thighs in others. To promote continuing interest in the product, Burger King releases limited-time variants.

As one of the company's major offerings, the grilled chicken sandwich is featured in its advertising. Burger King has registered trademarks for its sandwiches in many markets. Burger King's first broiled chicken sandwich, the BK Broiler, was introduced in 1990, it was made with tomato and a dill ranch sauce served on an oat dusted roll. At that time, more than 90% of chicken products sold by the major chains were fried. By a month after its introduction, it was selling more than a million units per day, poaching sales from fried chicken chains such as Kentucky Fried Chicken; the sandwiches were part of an industry trend towards the diversification of menus with healthier products such as reformulated cooking methods and salads. At the time, the sandwich had 18 grams of fat, 10 of which came from the sauce; the introduction of the BK Broiler was one of the most successful restaurant product launches encouraging the company look into introducing additional products that would match the success of the Broiler.

Its success helped Burger King increase its profit margin by 47% over the corresponding six-month period in 1989. By 1992, sales of the BK Broiler had slowed to half of their peak; the company reformulated the BK Broiler in 1998 into a larger, more male-oriented sandwich served on a Whopper bun, increasing its patty size while changing the ingredients to mayonnaise and tomato. The idea behind the up-sizing of the product was to give the customer a sense of value, with a company spokesman stating "When they see a lot, it seems like they're getting a lot for their money, if they don't eat it all, they think they're being treated fairly." The move was part of the company's "back to basics" movement in which it reorganized its menu, focusing on its core products and simplifying its product base. As part of the forty-fifth anniversary of its Whopper sandwich in 2002, BK introduced an updated version of the sandwich called the Chicken Whopper and added a smaller version called the Chicken Whopper Jr. sandwich, along with a new Caesar salad sandwich topped with a Chicken Whopper filet.

The introduction of the Chicken Whopper represented the company's first move to extend the Whopper brand name beyond beef-based sandwiches since the original Whopper's introduction in the 1950s. The sandwiches featured a whole chicken breast filet, weighing either 4.7 oz for the larger sandwich and a 3.1 oz for the Jr. mayonnaise and tomato on a sesame seed roll. A newly reformulated low fat mayonnaise was introduced in conjunction with the new sandwiches. Along with the company's new BK Veggie sandwich, The Chicken Whopper Jr. version of the sandwich was lauded by the Center for Science in the Public Interest as being one of the best nutritionally sound products sold by a fast food chain. Still, the CSPI decried the rest of the Burger King menu as being vastly unhealthy. Development of the sandwich began in 2001 in response to several major factors. After an overall sales decline of 17% coupled with a profit decline of 29%, Burger King held a series of consumer tests that showed the company's customer base was looking for a wider variety of options when making purchases.

Additional survey results revealed that a lack of newer products was discouraging consumers from visiting the chain. Furthermore, the company was seeking to counter the threat to its sales by newer fast casual restaurants that had begun to bite into sales. By July 2002, the chain had sold nearly fifty million of the sandwiches displacing the BK Broiler's initial launch figures as the company's best selling product introduction; the successful introduction of the Chicken Whopper was one of the few noted positive highlights of the company during negotiations for the sale of Burger King by its owner Diageo to a group of investors led by the TPG Capital. Despite the Chicken Whopper's initial success, just over a year after the Chicken Whopper's introduction enthusiasm for the product was waning; as of November 2013, the Chicken Whopper is the current grilled chicken sandwich sold by Burger King in the Middle East. With its 2014 expansion into India, Burger King introduced the Chicken Whopper as one of three versions of the Whopper.

The other two variants are the Veggie Whopper. In 2003, BK introduced its BK Baguette line of sandwi

George Windsor Earl

George Windsor Earl was an English navigator and author of works on the Indian Archipelago. He coined the term'Indu-nesian' adopted as the name for Indonesia. Earl was born in London around 1813, he travelled to India after becoming a midshipman at age 14 joined the colonists in Western Australia in 1830. In 1832 he resumed his nautical career, working between Batavia and Singapore, gained the command of a trading ship, he returned to England and became involved in a scheme to colonise the North of Australia, leaving for Port Essington in 1838, but by 1845 the hardships and lack of success of the North Australia Expedition had exhausted him. He made a venture to the region, promoting cotton and trade, with a similar result. From 1855 until his death he held a variety of official administrative positions in the region, his last post was at Penang. Earl died on a sea journey to England in 1865, is buried at the Old Protestant Cemetery, George Town, Penang, in present-day Malaysia. G. W. Earl, who wrote on a diverse range of interests, was regarded as an authority on hydrography and a source of anthropological information on the peoples of the region.

His works include papers and books, a number of pamphlets and other material relating to proposed ventures in Australia. His first major publications were The Eastern Seas or Voyages and Adventures in the Indian Archipelago 1832-33-34... and Sailing directions for the Arafura Sea, 1839, a translation from Dutch narratives of Dirk Hendrik Kolff and others. The records of his observations of deep-sea channels was used by Charles Darwin and Alfred Russel Wallace when studying the disjuncts in the bio-geographic distribution of the region. In particular his pamphlet On the Physical Geography of South-Eastern Asia and Australia, published in 1845, described how shallow seas connected islands on the west with the Asian continent and with similar wildlife, islands on the east such as New Guinea were connected to Australia and were characterised by the presence of marsupials; this formed the insipiration for Alfred Russel Wallace to propose the faunal boundary line now known as the Wallace Line. He published a paper in 1850 that invented the term'Indu-nesians', for a quaint racial classification, derived from the Latin for India and island.

He published a seminal anthropological reference on the Papuan peoples, compiled from first hand accounts of other visitors to the region, though his direct contact or exploration of the land is unrecorded and seems unlikely. This work, The native races of the Indian Archipelago: Papuans, was the first in a projected series, further volumes on'Malayu-Polynesians', Moluccans were never realised. Amongst the sources for the material was information Earl obtained from interviews with Owen Stanley and Dumont d'Urville; the volume functioned as a standard reference on the people until the twentieth century, though based on a treatment as a racial classification, was noted for its focus on research from the field. The book included papers on racial types written in 1845, these were encouraged and edited by James Richardson Logan and published in Journal of the Indian Archipelago and Eastern Asia. George William Samuel Earl was born on 10 February 1832 in Hampstead, England to Percy William Earl, a ship's captain and Elizabeth née Sharp.

His sister, Elizabeth married John Loftus Hartwell, an Assistant-Surgeon in the army. George married Clara Siborne on 4 April 1846. George's granddaughter Anne'Nancy' Alt was the mother of Lt. Gen. Sir Frederick'Boy' Browning. NLA catalogue

The Kalemouth Suspension Bridge is a suspension bridge at Kalemouth in the Scottish Borders area of Scotland, near the B6401. It crosses the River Teviot just near Eckford, it was designed by Captain Samuel Brown, an officer of the Royal Navy, built by William Mather, a contractor of Kalemouth, some time between 1820 and 1830. Alexander Jeffrey wrote in 1838 "there is a chain bridge erected over the Tweed by the Late Mr Ormiston of that Ilk, at his own expense, for his private use: but it has since been opened to the public for a trifling fee - a boon which cannot be forgot or misused." In 1834, the tolls were ½d. for a foot passenger, 3d. for a horse or cart, 6d. for a gig, 1s. For a chaise. Tolls are thought to have been paid at now enlarged and a private home, it is protected as a Category A listed building. The bridge is still in use as an unclassified public road bridge, is one of the earliest surviving carriage suspension bridges, it crosses the River Teviot just near Eckford. There is another nearby bridge called the Kalemouth Bridge, which carries the A698 over the Kale Water.

The bridge works on the principle of suspension, uses chains with long iron links for the suspension cables. Iron rods are used for suspenders to connect the chain to the deck of the bridge, additional suspenders have been added in the middle of the chain links. A red painted wooden truss supports the wooden deck, covered with a layer of asphalt; the four ashlar pylons at the ends of the bridge are of pyramidal form. The bridge has a span of 180 feet, is 16 feet wide
