I LOVE Our Industry!

B. Mark Paul, senior vice president for investments with UBS Financial Services Inc. and the Carrigan•Paul•Ferguson Group, in Dallas:
"My greatest memory of Norman (Brinker) was when I was roughly 14 years old working with my mother and father in our first franchised/joint ventured Steak & Ale in Maitland, Fla.
There was about to be a major meeting of managers in Dallas. At that time, there were only 13 units in the country. I was sure I wanted to go and basically told my father that I had spoken with Harold Deem, one of Norman's original partners, and he said that I could come.
For whatever reason, my father took my word for it and said, 'you’re going.’ I had the greatest experience of my young career in those sessions that were scheduled, with Norman mainly leading the charge. That was, until my father and Harold confronted me regarding the scam I had run to get out there. I lived through that and would have done it all over again, if I could have!
The next thing I know, Norman is in Orlando to visit our restaurant and comes into the unit with a perfectly sized double-breasted red suit coat with the Steak & Ale patch for me to wear while running the floor and said, 'If you are going to do this job, you are going to need to look the part!'
My parents took some time to bring me down to earth! I will never forget the thoughtfulness that this represented and the impact that had on me. My 17 years with Steak & Ale were certainly some of the best in my life."

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.
