"I think the answer is much more basic.  I've worked a few groupon programs on the restaurant level and have read a few of the studies.  When you stand in front of the guests during Groupon expiration week, the answer becomes…"

"Good post and a great reminder, while I don't think (most) have a malicious intent when reposting content from a blogger, it is always important to give credit where credit is due!"

Posting Content From Bloggers

There are a great number of excellent restaurant bloggers around the web. Most of these people spend time writing these blogs while also working on starting their own business or holding down a full time job. I personally developed and write seven different blogs related to the restaurant industry. I do this as a method of establishing credibility for my book (Tips²: Tips For Improving Your Tips) and my consulting company. I have never had advertising on my blogs and they have never directly…See More

Are You A Sergeant Or A General?

Posted on September 19, 2011 at 8:36am 1 Comment

For those of you who do not know me personally, I have a confession to make.  I am a huge history nerd.  This means that The History Channel’s “America: The History of Us” is taking up a large portion on my DVR.  I was watching the episode on World War II the other day when a particular statement from a General caught my attention.  He talked about the reasons soldiers fight.  He said that beyond all other reasons soldiers almost universally fight for the guy in the foxhole with… Continue

Why Server Training Saves You Money

Posted on September 14, 2011 at 9:30pm 5 Comments

In the current economic climate most restaurant companies have been searching for a way to attract guests.  They have turned to a variety of discounts and value-oriented options to keep guests coming through their doors.  In order to maintain profitability, they have also looked for ways to cut costs.  One of the most common cutbacks has been in the area of server training.  Restaurants have been continuously allocating less of the budget to training servers.  This is often perceived as a…

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.
