Proud to Swim Home

The restaurant where I have worked for the past 5 1/2 years handed out over 70,000 free meals days after Katrina thanks to a generator and a few volunteers. As one of 3 New Orleans fohboh members, I feel its neccesary to spread the word about what life is STILL like 2 1/2 years after a major hurricane. I still love New Orleans for its diverse culture, great food and our determination to make it a better… Continue

The Best Training I've had in 10 years

Posted on April 19, 2008 at 1:11pm 2 Comments

The best training as a server I have ever had is going out to eat myself. In essence, being served. I have experienced A+ service and failing service. Sitting on the other side and taking an objective view is what I think makes me the great server I am today! I, in turn, wait tables as I would want to be waited on. Do unto others as you would want done to you! My suggestion besides computer training,etc would be to hold a mock dinner and let the trainee survey the waiter. One exemplifying… Continue

Employee Comment Box

Posted on April 17, 2008 at 12:34pm 6 Comments

I think an employee comment box should be available at all restaurants/businesses. Many times, employees may want to bring something positive or negative to management but don't. Also, reading the comments allows management the right to take action or not! As a FOH employee, I know how hard it is for management to know EVERYTHING that goes on with 20+servers on the floor a shift. Its also a great way to make your employees feel valued. A restaurant works best with happy employees, right? We are… Continue

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?
