No Kid Hungry in America. Make a Difference though Share Our Strength

As the season begins to turn, and the weather starts to turn cold, we all prepare for the next few months that will be spent mostly inside. During these months, we’ll put down our salad forks and pick up a soup spoon to compliment the weather with warm and cozy comfort food. However, this is not a luxury that we are all able to endure. Try to imagine being a young child, coming inside after hours of playing in the snow, and not being able to refuel with a nice meal. Think about how it feels to… Continue

Good causes prove to be great recession-busters for restaurants

Recent economic turmoil is forcing restaurants to get creative.



The saying, "adapt or perish" is true now more than ever: KFC now offers grilled chicken, Pizza Hut has pasta, and Morton's Steakhouse has a $5 burger.



But another (warmer, fuzzier) way that restaurateurs are combating the recession is by hosting charity events, where part of the proceeds go to the cause.



Indeed, many… Continue

SoCal burns and businesses step up to help. Or do they?

In Southern California this weekend, Hollywood glitz has felt more like Armageddon. As I write this, massive fires continue to burn in three counties, and local radio station KNX-AM has reported 26,000 residents have been forced to evacuate.



Yesterday, a general manager from a local hotel sent a media alert inviting evacuees from all zip codes to stay at his resort for 40% off the regular price, pets welcome. As I started to run this alert on my site, it dawned on me the invitation… 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)
