My experience in the restaurant business started when I was about 6 years old. My father owned his own restaurant for about 2 years and during those two years I basically spent every moment there when I wasn't at school.... although I didn't really do anything there. It's hard to motivate a 6 year old to do anything. When I was 16 I got hired to be a server assistant (busser) at Chi Chi's. I worked my way up to Server Assistant trainer after 2 years. Right at the end of my 3rd year at Chi Chi's, that whole dirty green onion's thing happened and the business completely crashed. They had to make alot of cuts to attempted to save the business... Sadly I was one of those cuts.
I applied at Applebee's in Boardman OH to be a dishwasher and at my interview I was asked if I could be a cook. I had no cooking experience at all but I thought I could at least try. I apparently did alright at it because i've now been with Applebee's for 4 years and managed to become a Neighborhood Expert and a Key Employee. My goal now is to become a manager for Thomas & King. I've recently been transferred to the Applebee's in Niles to be a Key and i'm loving every minute of it.

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."
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.)
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.
Within each of us are two selves, suggests David Brooks in this meditative short talk: the self who craves success, who builds a résumé, and the self who seeks connection, community, love -- the values that make for a great eulogy. (Joseph Soloveitchik has called these selves "Adam I" and "Adam II.") Brooks asks: Can we balance these two selves?
