“A unanimous commitment to self improvement, through the understanding of our natural strengths through statistically based programs that improve relations within and those we interact with.” – ChefTrac Mission Statement
chefTrac™ has centered it’s programs that support this mission. We create an immediate bond with those very unique individuals called chefs. They have their own language and sub-culture that can be difficult to communicate with. That is were I have the advantage, I am a chef working with chefs.

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."

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.
