Spell check wouldn't have caught this mistake, but a good proofreader should have.

"...........pasta with "salt and freshly ground black people."

It's only a few letters off, but what a difference.

Proofread those menus and special inserts.

Hi Paul,
I just read your "Localizing & Greenscapes" article and thought that you brought up and interesting issue that many restaurants face about local food being more expensive and customers being broker. I just posted a comment on it about my thoughts, but I just wanted to swing by your profile and let you know that I appreciated someone bringing up an issue that rarely gets discussed. Cheers!

Hey Paul...
ScheduleFly is much easieer than you think plus they offer very accessible support. The cool thing is you can sample them with their 30-Day free trial with no obligation! If you're bit shy to try it... have one of your lead staffers use it with just one department for the 30-day FREE trial Our younger counter parts already use this type of technology and they could become your key players in making use of this technology in-house.

I have 5 requests to connect in my inbox that have no photo or any other information about who they are. One of the reasons I am here is to connect with people, but I am hesitant to do so without some idea who the requesting party is. If I've offended you by deleting your request, I apologize. Please try again.

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.

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.
