Remembering Julia Child

Just saw the movie, "Julie and Julia" and was taken back in time to a summer day in the 80's when I interviewed her at her home on Irving St. in Cambridge, sitting in the kitchen with her and her husband, Paul, and eating leftover roasted chicken.



I remember finding her to be a less than great interview subject - I'd gone there to do a story on how she changed the way America viewed food and she was very dismissive of the foodservice industry, it seemed to me at the time. I was quite… Continue

The French Paradox

Cheese, wine and olive oil are three constants in the Mediterranean diet. The synergy of these may account for the low incidence of coronary heart disease in France. The high concentration of amino acids in cheese aid in digestion, and French cheese is virtually lactose free. The resveratrol in wine is heart healthy and cancer preventing, while the polyphenols present can protect against diabetes, arteriosclerosis and cancer. The higher concentration of mono-unsaturated fats in olive oil is… Continue

French Sour Grapes

Knowing what your competition is doing is just plain smart. Others have accused me of being paranoid about my competitors, but I have a healthy respect for the other guy, and I know enough about this weird world of marketing to know that I am not the only one thinking or strategizing in a certain way. They say that there is nothing new under the sun, and perhaps that’s true. I do know that if I am planning…

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?
