Hi your question is? how is a restaurant valued,

1. what is the turover and the profit. long is the lease does it have an option.

3. what is the rent,

of course there are professional questions, do you understand turnover and profit, do you have capacity to run the restaurant, if the answer is yes, and the lease is at least 5 years plus option, the value is two years profit, if the lease is less then five years, the restaurant is worth less and so on.

Hi, there. I am working on All About Eat, a startup dedicated to collecting information about local foods.

My question: As a chef, what are the most important things you want to know about a local producer? Contact info, what they sell, pricing, distribution methods, growing methods, available quantities -- what else?

TED: Hamish Jolly: A shark-deterrent wetsuit (and it's not what you think) - Hamish Jolly (2013)

Hamish Jolly, an ocean swimmer in Australia, wanted a wetsuit that would deter a curious shark from mistaking him for a potential source of nourishment. (Which, statistically, is rare, but certainly a fate worth avoiding.) Working with a team of scientists, he and his friends came up with a fresh approach — not a shark cage, not a suit of chain-mail, but a sleek suit that taps our growing understanding of shark vision.
