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: 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.
