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: 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" that allows a telescope to photograph planets from 50,000 kilometers away. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."

TED: Norman Spack: How I help transgender teens become who they want to be - Norman Spack (2013)

Puberty is an awkward time for just about everybody, but for transgender teens it can be a nightmare, as they grow overnight into bodies they aren't comfortable with. In a heartfelt talk, endocrinologist Norman Spack tells a personal story of how he became one of the few doctors in the US to treat minors with hormone replacement therapy. By staving off the effects of puberty, Spack gives trans teens the time they need. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)

TED: Jennifer Senior: For parents, happiness is a very high bar - Jennifer Senior (2014)

The parenting section of the bookstore is overwhelming—it's "a giant, candy-colored monument to our collective panic," as writer Jennifer Senior puts it. Why is parenthood filled with so much anxiety? Because the goal of modern, middle-class parents—to raise happy children—is so elusive. In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.
