servers survey.doc

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!

Hi Michael..

Well Done Fillet is the creator of this group. In the heading of each group the creator is identified.

There are a couple other waiter groups with minimal activity by the members. Maybe we should suggest the all the waiter groups be consolidated into one in order to concentrate a group of mutual interest.

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: 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.
