Hi all,

I have a friend developing a celebrity chef restaurant in LA. It will also be followed by TV One, as an anatomy of a start up restaurant. They need an architect/designer ASAP near the LA market. Grateful for any leads. Thank you

I'm looking for someone really experienced in commercial kitchens design in order to get the closest-to-perfection one for my project: the most state-of-the-art 'A1 class' commercial kitchen that also would house a TV-cooking-studio and a showroom-classroom cooking area (much better if all-in-one but not necessarily).

Moreover the place should house an 80-100 seated pax dining room + a very comfortable Bar + a Tobaccologist (smoking) Area + a small Art Gallerie + a Waitting Area + some Gardens + a Valet-Parking Lot + headquarter offices area) will be my ideal of a Fine Restaurant and International Gastronomic Society.

I know that this is a very ambitious project, but thanks in advance for your suggestions.

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.

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" positioned 50,000 km from a telescope to enable imaging of planets about distant stars. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."
