Does bad real estate equal bad karma?

Perhaps "bad real estate" is a strong term, but here's why I ask.There are some addresses that seem to be a revolving door for new restaurants. It might be easy to assume it's because of the location, although this doesn't completely explain why, if it's in say a strip mall, neighboring eateries seem to do just fine.I'm curious to know if anyone's opened a restaurant in what was once a "revolving door" and witnessed it becoming a success. If not, was it because the previous restaurants at that…See More

White House Chefs: Sensitivity not Fame

Posted on November 25, 2008 at 10:13am 2 Comments

Would you want someone with an astronomical ego cooking your food (not to be confused with gastronomical)?

I like humble people myself. Those low-down types who've got it goin' on but don't feel the need to create a cult figure out of themselves. (As opposed to wannabes who seem to be the ones who turn themselves into something larger than life).

Not sayin' that the likes of Bobby Flay, Giada or Rachael do that, but here's what's true: they are definitely not in line for… Continue

President-elect Obama Stops by Chicago Deli

Posted on November 21, 2008 at 4:56pm 6 Comments

Normally this wouldn't be top-fold news. But hey, it's FohBoh, the voice of the global restaurant industry. On Change.gov, the Prez-elect camp posts photos and this blurb:

SoCal burns and businesses step up to help. Or do they?

Posted on November 17, 2008 at 7:00am 5 Comments

In Southern California this weekend, Hollywood glitz has felt more like Armageddon. As I write this, massive fires continue to burn in three counties, and local radio station KNX-AM has reported 26,000 residents have been forced to evacuate.

Yesterday, a general manager from a local hotel sent a media alert inviting evacuees from all zip codes to stay at his resort for 40% off the regular price, pets welcome. As I started to run this alert on my site, it dawned on me the invitation… Continue

Posted on November 3, 2008 at 7:00am 8 Comments

Looking for a great idea for an Election Day special? Or maybe your child is looking for trivia to earn extra credit on a quiz. The following might help. As those of us living in the States study our ballots and prepare for tomorrow's historic and critical election, I decided to take on the the light-and-tidy activity of looking into the favorite foods of some of the former U.S. Presidents.

Note, many of the foods said to be savored by those who once ran the Oval Office… Continue

The Great American Sports ... Promotion?

Posted on October 27, 2008 at 7:00am 6 Comments

In a society where we're fortunate to have great sports, food and an abundance of both, I'm always amazed by how the two help each other when it comes to marketing and branding:

  • Hometown pizza joints such as Pizza Club La Habra in Southern California keep their store bustling by partnering with little league sports teams and offering specials for big pro-game nights
  • The Dodger dog reminds avid baseball fans which team is famous for selling the foot-long…

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.

TED: David Brooks: Should you live for your résumé ... or your eulogy? - David Brooks (2014)

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?
