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: 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.

TED: David Brooks: Should you live for your résumé ... or your eulogy? - David Brooks (2014)

Within each of us are two selves, suggests David Brooks in this meditative short talk: the self who craves success, who builds a résumé, and the self who seeks connection, community, love -- the values that make for a great eulogy. (Joseph Soloveitchik has called these selves "Adam I" and "Adam II.") Brooks asks: Can we balance these two selves?
