Yes I did have kids this year in a old family consumer science kitchen. Our commercial kitchen opens this Fall. That was the hardest part leaving TCA with all the great equipment and going a year on electric, but I knew I was getting brand new eventually so it is worth the wait. Drinks are on me this summer. Yes, Steve does have an advantage with the way he is allowed to run his program. My CATE director would never agree to it and has put some limitations on me. We may be getting a Mobile Catering vehicle donated by a local entrepreneur that owns a company call www. SnappySnacksMobileCatering.com to teach and run as a small business. Have a great summer and look forward to becoming friends and colleagues.
I have been gone a year and just finished Region 13 certification. I will be at all three events - TRA Summer Conference, Expo, and Family Consumer Science Conference. I am excited, but it was a long year and completely different than college. I have a lot to learn and would love to bounce some idea off you. We are opening our new commercial kitchen as we speak. Look forward to seeing you, networking, learning, sharing, and becoming friends. You and Steve are leaders in the industry and would love to have you as a mentor as I transition and build my program. Culinary Regards!

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."
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.)
