Bacon Mouse, Organic Free-Range Egg, all natural Bison….. are just a few of the mouthwatering "ingredients” gracing the artisan burger world today.   And what’s not to love about these juicy works of art wrapped in wax paper?  So much love that a $100 billion annual market has been born.  And aren’t we glad it’s here.

In a recent Technomic report based on more than 2,250 online surveys of U.S. and Canadian consumers, found that 91 percent said they eat a burger at least once a month…


American Barbecue: Delicious AND Nutritious?

Tricks to make home-style cuisine appealing to the health conscious diner 

Unfortunately for the restaurant industry, diners trying to watch their waistlines typically avoid most barbecue fare.  Creamy coleslaw, buttery cornbread, cheesy macaroni, and generous slabs of meat are most often associated with this beloved culinary treasure.

Rather unfairly, barbecue has built up a bad reputation for expanding summer waistlines.  This is quite a shame,…

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.
