Well, today is budget presentation to "ownership day" so a rather mundane yet stressful day will reach its apex at about 2:00. My work is complete and although I am very confident in the numbers, the outlook for the 2010 season for baseball is still somewhat bleak. If attendance improves then so will F&B. My team is in great spirits as we have probably weathered teh storm to some degree which initself is a confidance builder. The fact is, the restaurants will project improvements financially and that is a good thing.

Hi Christiane,
I am the guy that sent you a couple of ill-prepared comments sometime back. I wrote in my notes ( I was ashamed) to send a follow up querie to see how business was for you and that things were going well for you. I hope that you had a good holiday business and continue to wish you well.

I am truly sorry, that was extremely poor manners on my part, I had no right to comment on your discussion, especially with so many judemental quips. My quick retort was equally unimpressive and for that i am additionally sorry. Please accept my apologies.

Hi, I have been watching the dialogue of yours in the discussion, "Top 10 Management Gripes about Employees. While I am certain that i have missed the beginning tenor of your statements as well as your arguments, I thought that I would ask the question, "Is your establishment one of autocracy, or do you feel that the peolpe that work "with/for" you have value? You seem to be very passionate but I am curious if you believe that flinging the sardonic comments are serving you well in your argument? Your attitude does not seem to be one of a true artist or leader that trusts the people that you work with to deliver your product in a convivial manner. In your early assessment of yourgripes was one regarding everyone wanting to leave at the close of a day when a party of 10 walked in, you said everyone knows the business and food, you said that you are all a team, yet nobody wants to work for you when clearly a financial opportunity exists for all. If you are the true leader, you should aspire to inspire. I am sorry, but i have seen nothing inspirational in your points of view about your employees. The age of the Draconian Chef is over, forget about TV, make your staff happy and "have Fun". I know that i do not walk in your shoes and i am hopeful that you don't hate me for saying all of this. On balance, it is very difficult to lead people, but that really is your job, not cooking.

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.
