You know the problems: Rising prices, some municipal administrations like San Francisco passing ordinances which take hundreds of thousands of… Continue

Well, that's special, but I am not, rather in Paris and trying to get my work done with limited computer access. Less grafitti would be appreciated. Chef John who?

Thank you, Michael..It's Jo Lynne..sort of like Billy Joe Bob..the more names you have on the first line, the bigger the trailer. (OK, never owned one, but happened to get born below the Mason Dixon Line, but I still count as a SF native).

We have been building the structure for Guest First (www.guestfirstgroup.com) as I have been expanding the chef consultancy functions of the agency (will be up soon, I hope). Today we arranged for the old corporate chef for one of the cruise lines to take over the consulting chefs as well as the emergency chefs, as Howard Cummins continues to deal with our management recruiting. All and all it's been a challenging two months.

Thank you all for your comments. We have added a page of links to Howard Cummins space, Prohospitalitysearch.com, with links to many good recent articles about the industry, mostly from the management side. www.prohsospitalitysearch.com/links.html - please enjoy.

Up to my neck in IT and internet presentation, thank you very much for asking. Hope all is well.

Hate to ask this, but we've met? Just asking. It's possible that I am just slipping a cog here.

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.
