The power of a simple 'thank you'

A very good friend reminded me recently that nothing is more powerful than two very simple words: 'thank you.'

It's very true - we all know people who come into our lives and ask for our help. But the reaction, after giving and not receiving any sign of appreciation - not even a simple 'thanks,' can be one of feeling turned off to offering help again.

They'll eat your veggies but they want creative presentations

My website has a new guest column that just went up - http://www.foodserviceeast.com/current.html and it is from a longtime animal rights activist who basically is bored with what he, as a vegetarian, sees on menus when he dines out.



Yes, he admits, there are a few places that go to the trouble of creating something special, something with as much thought, for vegetarians and vegans as they do for the rest of their clientele - but it's a small number.



He's bored, he says,… Continue

The times they are a-changin'

Bob Dylan certainly had it right - and his words apply today as we look back on a week of dramatic downs, ups, and signs that we are in for continued tough slogging in a business climate that can only be called challenging.



I can't help but look with amazement and pride at people in our industry here in the Northeast who saw what was ahead and took measures to stay ahead of it - people like John Elkhay of Chow Fun Food Group down in Providence, RI who took a seafood, pizza and pasta… Continue

Hot topics and cool implementations

My new (Fall Equinox, 2008) issue is out and full of hot topics and cool implementations! From "going green" and installing solar panels to crafting high end menus with fresh, sustainable, local foods, there's a lot happening in the Northeast.



Others may focus on the doom and gloom of a down economy but I prefer to look on the bright side, at all the bright people in our industry who are doing creative, exciting and innovative things in a variety of areas from food prep to FOH to… 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?
