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: 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.

TED: Michel Laberge: How synchronized hammer strikes could generate nuclear fusion - Michel Laberge (2014)

Our energy future depends on nuclear fusion, says Michel Laberge. The plasma physicist runs a small company with a big idea for a new type of nuclear reactor that could produce clean, cheap energy. His secret recipe? High speeds, scorching temperatures and crushing pressure. In this hopeful talk, he explains how nuclear fusion might be just around the corner.

TED: Sarah Lewis: Embrace the near win - Sarah Lewis (2014)

At her first museum job, art historian Sarah Lewis noticed something important about an artist she was studying: Not every artwork was a total masterpiece. She asks us to consider the role of the almost-failure, the near win, in our own lives. In our pursuit of success and mastery, is it actually our near wins that push us forward?

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.
