Hi professional servers and managers,

We are two college students looking for industry professionals to help us with our senior project by participating in one of two brief surveys, pertaining to the methods used in-house to better wine sales (i.e. suggestive selling, food and wine pairings, etc.). The results of these surveys will assist us in compiling data which will be used to determine which (if any) techniques are most effective in improving wine sales.
There are two surveys available (which should not take more than 5-10 minutes), one which should be taken by managers in casual to casual-fine dining restaurants, and the other by professional servers in casual to casual-fine dining restaurants.

If you wish to assist us by participating in a survey, please follow the appropriate link below. You may also leave your contact information following the last question in the text box to receive your copy of the results, and thank you very much for your help.

If anyone has worked in a fine dining establishment and is willing to take a service technique survey, it would only a minute of your time and would be greatly appreciated. Just save it, complete it and send it back to me. Your input would really help, thank you so much!

URGENT - NEED WAITERS FOR WALL STREET JOURNAL INTERVIEW

Hello...

Looking for waiters willing to interview with the Wall Street Journal who have lost their jobs due to cutbacks or restaurant closures as the result of the current recession. These could be from anywhere in the USA.

Here's the WSJ reporter's email to me today:
"Hi Paul,
We spoke for a story several months ago about restaurant tips. I’m wondering whether you know any servers who have recently lost their jobs due to cutbacks or their restaurant shutting down. I’d like to speak to them for a story about how the industry has fewer jobs than just this summer. If you could send me names and numbers of some folks, that would be a big help.
Thanks"


If you or you know someone in this tough position of unemployment, please contact me ASAP at Tips@WaitersWorld.com.

Please include:
Full Name
City & State
Email Address
Telephone number where you can be reached
Brief description of your circumstances - 100 words or less

Thanks!
Paul www.WaitersWorld.com

TED TALKS VIDEO

TED: Matthew Carter: My life in typefaces - Matthew Carter (2014)

Pick up a book, magazine or screen, and more than likely you'll come across some typography designed by Matthew Carter. In this charming talk, the man behind typefaces such as Verdana, Georgia and Bell Centennial (designed just for phone books -- remember them?), takes us on a spin through a career focused on the very last pixel of each letter of a font.

TED: Jeremy Kasdin: The flower-shaped starshade that might help us detect Earth-like planets - Jeremy Kasdin (2014)

Astronomers believe that every star in the galaxy has a planet, one fifth of which might harbor life. Only we haven't seen any of them -- yet. Jeremy Kasdin and his team are looking to change that with the design and engineering of an extraordinary piece of equipment: a flower petal-shaped "starshade" that allows a telescope to photograph planets from 50,000 kilometers away. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."

TED: Norman Spack: How I help transgender teens become who they want to be - Norman Spack (2013)

Puberty is an awkward time for just about everybody, but for transgender teens it can be a nightmare, as they grow overnight into bodies they aren't comfortable with. In a heartfelt talk, endocrinologist Norman Spack tells a personal story of how he became one of the few doctors in the US to treat minors with hormone replacement therapy. By staving off the effects of puberty, Spack gives trans teens the time they need. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)

TED: Jennifer Senior: For parents, happiness is a very high bar - Jennifer Senior (2014)

The parenting section of the bookstore is overwhelming—it's "a giant, candy-colored monument to our collective panic," as writer Jennifer Senior puts it. Why is parenthood filled with so much anxiety? Because the goal of modern, middle-class parents—to raise happy children—is so elusive. In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.
