Greetings Chef
Do you know if the ULC has any remaining rooms available for the NRA?
I'm also hearing some big players have backed out of the show this year. Sara Lee, McCain, Anchor, Pilgrims Pride.

I'm curious what you're hearing about the show this year.

I do not know him, but I know the company. A colleague and friend John Draz in the Corporate Chef. They have some great products that I have been able to try. Is a small world.

Timmy boy!
Yeah, guilty. I haven't seen him since Mr A's funeral.

That I certainly don't remember. But you sound like you hang around Tim Rosendahl to much. He has amazing ideas and products that are unique.

Will do Chef. To jog your memory, I think we showed you those little towelettes that look like an alka seltzer tablet, but when you add water, they open up into a napkin...

It is quite possible and probable. Mr A is certainly someone that will be missed in our profession and especially at our reception. Please stop and say hello when you come to the reception on Monday, May 19. Please stay in touch.

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.
