Social Media Basics for Restaurants and Bars - seminar (Portland, Oregon)

A great 'beginning' seminar to cover the basics of social media for bars and restaurants. For new or existing locations Nov. 17th at 10am or 2pm.

This seminar is for you if:

* You own or run a bar or restaurant.
* You know you need to get on the social media bandwagon to market your location more successfully.
* You've heard about tools such as Twitter, Facebook, Foursquare and LinkedIn.
* You're limited in terms of time, tech skills, and money.

In one hour, you'll learn:

* How social media differs from "traditional" marketing.
* What options are available to you in Portland.
* What to do about the social media tools you can control.
* What to do about the tools you can't control.
* How to post, what to post, and who should post.

And most importantly, how to make it all work together in just 10 minutes per day...if that's all you've got.

Presented by local hospitality social media manager Jennifer Hancox and NTN Buzztime's Brandon Hull.

Tickets are $20 if purchased in advance online, or $35 at the door.

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.
