Very interested to know if anyone is familiar with Gobza and, if so, what your experience is?  Based on limited research to date, Gobza appears to be a new alternative to Groupon and Living Social…Continue

Online Ordering for Produce, Products & Menu Supplies

Researching different online/web based systems for ordering produce and other menu items from suppliers.  A lot of the systems I have found seem to be proprietary to a particular distributor, supplier or consortium.  While any recommendations, even for a proprietary system woudl be appreciated, I'm particularly interested in systems where I can compare produce and products from different distributors, suppliers and manufacturers.  Any advice?  Many thanks.See More

Ha!!  I was one of the first 500 members!!  I don't use it that much now.  When they first started up, they got really uptight if you talked about your business on here cuz they wanted ppl to buy banner ads.  I loaded up my profile with anchor links back to my website.  I have been talking to folks about Gobza.  Kelly and I will talk to Karen (exec director - GRA) next week.

TED TALKS VIDEO

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.
