The Danger of NOT Eating Tuna

Sora Song of Time Magazine this week fleshes out the complete story beyond the NYT investigative report into mercury levels in bluefin tuna sushi in New York City.

In recent years, the last word on the dangers of eating mercury-rich fish seemed to be the government's well-publicized 2004 advisory, which recommended against eating too much higher…

Trading Exercise for Alcohol?

Interesting article from A. Chris Gajilan

Medical News Senior Producer - edited January 14th.



We all know that exercise is good for your heart. In addition, most of you probably already know that drinking moderately is better than no drinking at all when it comes to your health, and more specifically your ticker. But did you know that exercise and drinking alcohol lower your coronary heart disease risk in similar ways?



Exercise and alcohol drinking… Continue

Labeling law to protect against cloning risk

The following article describes how the state of California is reacting to the recent FDA claim that food and dairy products from cloned animals are safe for human consumption. Should other states jump on California's band wagon? What does this mean for the FDA's integrity and future as the authority on US Food Supply?

Social Network Fatigue

It might be time to break out that pillow—are you starting to suffer from “SNF”? Social networking is exploding beyond the confines of the massive walled gardens of MySpace and Facebook to embrace smaller vertical or “niche” networks that better cater to specific areas of interest. BusinessWeek talks about this new phenomenon in this article. At what…

Genetically Modified Tomatoes are Healthier

After the recent discussion of cloned meat, I thought this article from medicinalfoodnews.com was fascinating.



It was considered a major breakthrough when the possibility of improving on nature by using molecular biology was first introduced. However, enthusiasm was replaced by anxiety and fear when it was suggested that food also could be improved using this new technology. The composition of any food is controlled by the genetic makeup of the plant, and so it was only a matter of…

FINE DINING, FUNKY JAZZ & FRIENDS....

I invite you to the Wood Fire Italian Trattoria, in Dowagiac, MI for a fine dining experience! This independent restaurant comes closest to many Chicago's upscale restaurants and is only 1:45 minutes from downtown.



A little history on Wood Fire: It was going to be opened by Muhammad Ali's chef, who lived with him about 25 miles away. But, at the last minute, the chef decided to back out and go in another direction. Reconstruction of an 1875 hardware store had begun and the city of… Continue

The Best Brand Is....You!

Recently, I wrote an article discussing the Unique Selling Proposition: its definition, its use and its penultimate importance in all aspects of marketing, no matter what business you’re in. In another article, I told the story of Julie’s Mansion, a wonderful restaurant I was studying as a young hospitality school student. I mentioned that Julie (Jules F., the owner) was an eccentric, flamboyant entrepreneur who knew how to differentiate himself with the public by using the…

TGIF...Margaritas, anyone?

Well, virtual margaritas, more specifically.

I just wanted to officially invite all FohBoh-ers to join the Mexican Food Fiends group. You don't actually have to be a fiend; you just need to have a taste for comida mexicana--or any variation of it. (And YES, tequila counts.)

I only grew to love Mexican (Tex-Mex) food after living in the Rio Grande Valley for two years. Now I'm trying to learn to cook it for…

Web Cast Demos

I would like to ask the FohBoh community if a new marketing strategy I would like to try is a good idea. I am thinking about providing online interactive demonstrations of our product. I think that it would allow customers a chance to view the product without feeling the pressure of a sales person sitting in their face. What is your opinion about this. Would anyone here be interested in participating? I just need to know if it would be easier for restaurant and bar owners to see a demonstration… Continue

TED TALKS VIDEO

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?

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.
