"I believe that all training should be on customer service because if you try to get one check up, and have bad service that customer will not be back so you lost that later money for that few extra dollars you made on that night."
"You see there are cycles. Management sometimes tries to crack down when they let it get to out of hand in the first place. Or, maybe they are going for a promotion or it's right around bonus time. This is where the trend…"
"I don't really understand a problem in your post. As a person in the "service industry" and also a guest in establishments I see every day that I can overlook small problems with food or atmosphere as long as it is made right…"
"One more thing don't always say WE WANT EXPERIENCE. That can take some of your best workers away. I had never served before, but they gave me a chance. I relished the job oppurtunity and excelled in it. I went from…"

Vending machines generally offer up sodas, candy bars and chips. Not so for the one created by TED Fellow Gabe Barcia-Colombo. This artist has dreamed up a DNA Vending Machine, which dispenses extracted human DNA, packaged in a vial along with a collectible photo of the person who gave it. It’s charming and quirky, but points out larger ethical issues that will arise as access to biotechnology increases.
