Mimi Rebecca commented on UCLAExtensionFood&Wine's blog post How Gen Y Eats
"As a member of Gen Y, I think it's interesting that you say be fresh, even if it's not true. Followed by Gen Y has a good BS detector.  If it's fresh, it's gotta be truly fresh...or we'll know! :)"

How Gen Y Eats

By: Craig LaRosa, Continuum

The economy and a soft job market have left a new generation of college grads moving back home to help make ends meet. According to a recent Pew study, 61% of adults aged 25 to 34 have friends or family members who have moved back in with their parents over the past few years…

Service First

By: Monica Constantino

Service is more important than food.  It defines the restaurant EXPERIENCE.  Food may define the restaurant, but we all know we can find great Korean BBQ in the tiniest food truck in Brooklyn, or the best fried chicken in the deepest neighborhood in Compton.  The experience is what the consumer is looking for today.  As the economy shifts upward, the competition…

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.

TED: Michel Laberge: How synchronized hammer strikes could generate nuclear fusion - Michel Laberge (2014)

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. His secret recipe? High speeds, scorching temperatures and crushing pressure. In this hopeful talk, he explains how nuclear fusion might be just around the corner.

TED: Sarah Lewis: Embrace the near win - Sarah Lewis (2014)

At her first museum job, art historian Sarah Lewis noticed something important about an artist she was studying: Not every artwork was a total masterpiece. She asks us to consider the role of the almost-failure, the near win, in our own lives. In our pursuit of success and mastery, is it actually our near wins that push us forward?

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.
