We are experiencing the same effects to the economy as other sectors and are fighting hard for every inch of ad space. We will prevail though it will turn around, it always does. Want to sell some ads? We pay commission.

They made a decision about 5 years ago to stop investing in a paid circulation model. Now they are paying the price - they need readers to justify the advertising costs so they have to give it away free. And now they're spending money to give it away!

Latest edition of my magazine was sent to you today ;o) Enjoy!

Actually it ended up being an 8 oz. Filet Mignon wrapped in bacon. Yum. Can't remember the wine - a guest brought it but it was excellent (I'll have to look in the recycling bin and remember what it was so I can buy a bottle). Corn on the cob done on the grill with olive oil instead of butter and a spinach salad with a raspberry vinigrette dressing.

Appetizer was baguette sliced, crisped on the grill with a tomato-basil spread.

It was an excellent meal followed by a brandy and cigar on my deck.

Well honestly I don't do the print work... just the editing, writing, layout, concept etc... but I work with a great printing company... and our magazine is intended to be a resource for our members.

I'd be happy to send you a copy...

I'm out for the rest of the day... talk tomorrow!

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.
