Restaurant Management Training - Strive Hard For Cultural Diversity Understanding and Harmony

Cultural diversity is everywhere you look in the restaurant service business and has to be discussed with employees immediately whenever problems are beginning to mount. The "employee tension factor" must always be gauged judiciously over the course of time during the running of daily operations. This concept must be taught in every restaurant management training program. Anticipation and forethought of this type will keep a pressure cooker atmosphere from exploding, so it won't be too late…

If You Have Nothing to Say, Discount?

I’m old enough to remember not only that there once were just three main broadcast television channels but also that programming wasn’t always 24/7. If CBS or NBC didn’t have a program to fill the 8 p.m. slot on Tuesday night, the network simply went quiet and blank. But television, like nature, abhors a vacuum and the broadcast channels and cable channels that later joined them quickly understood there’s no…

The Perfect Restaurant Storm: 47 Separate Checks

I’ve often described working in a restaurant as Improv Theatre. Every shift presents unique circumstances and challenges, and even the most experienced professionals can be taken aback by the audacity of the human condition.

A seasoned general manager of a popular Boston restaurant sent me a text last week requesting to meet. Based on his extensive hospitality industry experience, I knew his story would not be an every-day tale of woe. When we met for breakfast the next day, he did…

"Local" Demystified: Transparency in Menu Offerings Gets Close To Home

We hear the term local tossed around pretty loosely now a days.  While it’s popping up on just about everything with a price tag (local business, locally owned, locally operated, locally whatever), there is

no place more popular to tout the term local than in food.

And with good reason.  The demand for local food has exploded in the…

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.
