Good morning friends. I'm happy to report that RetailVoice.net is live and open to the public as of 9:00 this morning. This brand-new online network has been developed by Chain Store Guide to provide a forum for retail and foodservice professionals to discuss hot topics, exchange ideas, and promote their businesses. (One of our members has already posted 18 pictures of her products.) Membership is free so check us out. And check back often - we're going to be adding new material on an ongoing basis as well as hosting discussion groups and helping to initiate dialogue among members. Remember, it's www.retailvoice.net, the newest place on the 'Net to network.
Actually, I have found something. Thankfully I am on track with my career direction. Prior to Pizza Hut which I am starting in full swing on Thursday. I worked for Wal-Mart which was definately not my cup of tea. I have been hired by Pizza Hut will start out learning everything about how it runs and become a Shift Manager. It's a step in the right direction for me anyway.
I generally like people and what a better way to get to knw people than to open up and say hello.
Sorry for the delay in responding...my mail box is getting quite full these days :-).
While we plan to add a way to upload and hold documents in your profile soon, it is not available just yet. So, here is my suggestion. Create a Discussion post with a primer. Then upload your white paper there. The write a Blog post with a summary. Then, add a hyperlink to the discussion. If you need help with this just let me now.
Thanks Adam. I've been researching the foodservice business for more than a decade, and I'm really glad to learn about this most excellent forum. I'm heading to the NRA show later this week and plan to stop by the FohBoh Booth. Hope I'll see all my 'friends' there!

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.
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.)

In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.
