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: Hamish Jolly: A shark-deterrent wetsuit (and it's not what you think) - Hamish Jolly (2013)

Hamish Jolly, an ocean swimmer in Australia, wanted a wetsuit that would deter a curious shark from mistaking him for a potential source of nourishment. (Which, statistically, is rare, but certainly a fate worth avoiding.) Working with a team of scientists, he and his friends came up with a fresh approach — not a shark cage, not a suit of chain-mail, but a sleek suit that taps our growing understanding of shark vision.

TED: Michel Laberge: How synchronized hammer strikes could generate nuclear fusion - Michel Laberge (2014)

Our energy future depends on nuclear fusion, says Michel Laberge. The plasma physicist runs a small company with a big idea for a new type of nuclear reactor that could produce clean, cheap energy. His secret recipe? High speeds, scorching temperatures and crushing pressure. In this hopeful talk, he explains how nuclear fusion might be just around the corner.

TED: Sarah Lewis: Embrace the near win - Sarah Lewis (2014)

At her first museum job, art historian Sarah Lewis noticed something important about an artist she was studying: Not every artwork was a total masterpiece. She asks us to consider the role of the almost-failure, the near win, in our own lives. In our pursuit of success and mastery, is it actually our near wins that push us forward?

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.
