Posted on March 21, 2009 at 8:05am 2 Comments

Hey my company made it in the New york Times today for our fight to remove all high fructose corn syrup. This has been a very long hard fought campaign to remove from all items in our stores.

Hi Chris! Thanks for for the connection. I know that you guys are very engaged in green efforts, which is my specialty, so I'm definately a huge supporter and eat there all the time (well, half because I like supporting green businesses and the other half because I just really like the food :) ). Cheers!

Thanks for the feedback on my blog post. I've been thinking about putting together an Aloha users group on here. Would that be of interest?

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?
