"If the toys were paired with meals that contained cage-free turkey and avocado sandwiches, veggies sticks, and organic apple juice, would there still be this push to ban them? The real issue here, the ten ton elephant in the dining room, is that the…"

Angelica Pappas commented on Angelica Pappas's blog post Take action: Help the CRA stop the Santa Clara County Toy Ban
"Let's be realistic, Paul. The ordinance in question isn't going to do anything to lessen marketing to children if that is your cause. Instead it will take the choice away from parents who still want it (76 percent do, according to the…"

"Angelica, I'm afraid I disagree with you. Marketing to impressionable children, who don't have the ability to make reasoned decisions, is deplorable. Television programs are adept at this practice in commercials and product placement, and…"

Take action: Help the CRA stop the Santa Clara County Toy Ban

The Santa Clara Board of Supervisors passed an ordinance that bans most toys and other incentives for children in restaurants in the unincorporated area of the county on April 27. The California Restaurant Association strongly opposed the ordinance, which was authored by Supervisor Ken Yeager. A CRA-commissioned poll of county residents revealed that a strong majority of them were against it, as well. The board acted in total disregard of its constituency, however, passing the measure with a…See More

Losing Trust in Green

Posted on February 22, 2010 at 10:42am 1 Comment

The experts agree that implementing eco-friendly business practices is no longer an option or luxury upgrade when the going is good, it’s a necessity to even compete.

But a study by the National Restaurant Association found that only 10 percent of consumers trust green information they receive from businesses or the government. So, as green efforts become a… Continue

Time for an Internet intervention

Posted on February 8, 2010 at 1:57am 10 Comments

In the course of publishing a magazine for restaurateurs, we spend a lot of time perusing restaurant Web sites and considering how these eateries approach their online presence. At times, we ooh and aah over a site's ease of use, simple yet dynamic aesthetic and effective usability on our perpetually-in-use iPhones. But it seems far more often we're shaking our heads wondering how a business… Continue

Tapping your voice

Posted on January 24, 2010 at 10:41pm 1 Comment

Maybe it’s a little late to be making New Year’s resolutions, but the 2010s are still in their infancy, so it’s only appropriate to be looking ahead at what’s in store.

Though the economic doom-and-gloom seems to be leveling out, the ongoing industry changes and battles continue. This is the time to get involved.

The National Restaurant Association 2010 Industry Forecast released last week predicts that,… Continue

Greetings Angelica,
I'm curious if you're planning any upcoming features on the mobile food truck trend? Is this movement active in Sacramento?
Does CRA have services that cater to this segment of the food marketplace?
Thx.
Luc

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.
