         Section 8. Vacancies and Newly Created Directorships. Any vacancy that shall occur in the Board of Directors by reason of death, resignation, retirement, disqualification or removal or any other cause whatever, and newly created directorships resulting from any increase in the authorized number of directors, may be filled by a majority of the remaining directors (though less than a quorum), including the sole remaining director, and, except as otherwise provided by the Articles of Incorporation with respect to newly created directorships filled by the Board of Directors, each director so chosen shall hold office until the annual meeting at which the term of the class to which he shall have been elected expires and until his successor shall be duly elected and shall qualify, or until his earlier death, resignation, retirement, disqualification or removal.

         Section 9. Committees. The Board of Directors may, by resolution passed by a majority of the directors in office, designate one or more committees, each committee to consist of two or more of the directors of the Corporation. The Board may designate one or more directors as alternate members of any committee, who may replace any absent or disqualified member at any meeting of the committee. Any such committee, to the extent provided by the Board, shall have and may exercise the powers of the Board of Directors in the management of the business and affairs of the Corporation, and may authorize the seal of the Corporation to be affixed to all papers which may require it; provided, however, that in the absence or disqualification of any member of such committee or committees, the member or members thereof present at any meeting and not disqualified from voting, whether or not he or they constitute a quorum, may unanimously appoint another member of the Board of Directors to act at the meeting in the place of any such absent or disqualified member. Such committee or committee shall have such name or names as may be determined from time to time by resolution adopted by the Board of Directors. Each committee shall keep regular minutes of its meetings and report the same to the Board of Directors when required.

         Section 10. Action Without a Meeting. Unless otherwise restricted by the Articles of Incorporation or these By-Laws, any action required or permitted to be taken at any meeting of the Board of Directors or of any committee thereof may be taken without a meeting, if prior to such action a written consent thereto is signed by all members of the Board or of such committee as the case may be, and such written consent is filed with the minutes of proceedings of the Board or of such committee.

         Section 11. Compensation of Directors. Directors, as such, shall not receive any stated salary for their services, but may be paid for their services such amounts as may be fixed from time to time by resolution of the Board. Expenses of attendance, if any, may be paid for attendance at each regular or special meeting of the Board. No such payments shall preclude any director from serving the Corporation in any other capacity and receiving compensation therefor. Members of special or standing committees may be allowed like compensation for attending committee meetings.

         Section 12. Required Vote of Directors For Certain Actions. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in these By-Laws, the following actions shall require the vote of five (5) Directors: (a) any alteration, amendment or repeal of these By-Laws; (b) the issuance of, or the adoption of any agreement or plan for the issuance of, any stock, rights, or other securities (including, without limitation, securities convertible into or exchangeable or exercisable for stock of the Corporation) to the stockholders or any class thereof generally, any term of which is contingent upon or effective upon the acquisition by any person of any of or all of the Corporation’s stock or upon any other action by any person with respect to such stock; (c) the creation of any committee of the Board of Directors; (d) the filling of vacancies on the Board of Directors or any committee thereof created by the death, resignation or removal of Avram A. Glazer or Bryan G. Glazer; or (e) any action to remove Avram A. Glazer or Bryan G. Glazer from any committee of the Board of Directors.

         Section 13. Transactions Involving Interest of Directors. In the absence of fraud, no contract or other transaction of the corporation is affected or invalidated by the fact that any of the directors of the corporation are in any way interested in, or connected with, any other party to, such contract or transaction, provided that such transaction satisfies the applicable provisions of Chapter 78 of the Nevada Revised Statutes. Each and every person who becomes a director of the Corporation is hereby relieved, to the extent permitted by law, from any liability that might otherwise exist from contracting in good faith with the Corporation for the benefit of himself or herself or any person in which he or she may be in any way interested or with which he or she may be in any way connected. Any director of the Corporation may vote and act upon any matter, contract or transaction between the Corporation and any other person without regard to the fact that he or she is also a stockholder, director or officer of, or has any interest in, such other person.
