Food, Alternative Uses and the Decisions We Make

Posted on October 16, 2008 at 10:57am 2 Comments

The more I study the global food market, the more it is clear to me that our society has some decisions to make as a whole over the next several years that will dramatically impact our businesses, the world food market and the human race. Public awareness can impact the world food equation and it is important for all of us to ask ourselves, and then our neighbors, about what we are doing with our resources.

Food costs: World and US trends as predictors of what is to come

Posted on October 15, 2008 at 12:05pm 0 Comments

Many theories abound about recent increases in food costs. Accurate projections about the near future can be achieved though knowledge of the causes, and what is being done about them. It is important to attempt to differentiate between responsible concerns and sensationalism in this discussion.



So why are the prices of major ingredients used by bakers and other food producers so high? When will we see some moderating, where will the moderating be and how stable will the market be… Continue

Thanks for your kind comment in the discussion on culinary training. Sounds like you have had an interesting career that's taken you a lot of places. I know a lot of restaurateurs who complain about kids coming out of culinary schools and thinking they know all there is to know and they're ready to be the next Star or have their own tv show.

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.
