FOHBro, Thanks for the "man hug" - Glad we are now FOHBROs - At this point I'm a little wary of any next step involving chef knives, a small slice and blood mixing.

They are TOO Cute FohBro! Have a great Papa Day brother and even if they give you a Smurf coffee mug or an Elvis tie, just love them and use them cause a REAL man can pull off wearing an Elvis tie and sipping off of a Smurf mug! LOL.
Peace Brother Michael!

Michael, I've tried your link to "Follow" you on Twitter, but it's not working presently. Tried Twitter search, with no results! I'm FLPizzaGirl on Twitter. What's your user name? I'm trying to recruit my restaurant worker friends on Twitter to join FOHBOH w/ Direct Messaging! Great Forum! Truly enjoy your feedback! Sorry I tend to disappear from time to time due to time constraints of business related Social Media vs Personal!( Good point on that- TRUST factor!)

TED TALKS VIDEO

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.
