H1N1, restaurants and Elmo

I’m in a line at a fast food restaurant when the cashier opens up the top of her shirt puts her face in it and sneezes. What I thought was disgusting was really much better than her sneezing out into the public space. I guess she never watched Elmo on where one should sneeze.

Gearing up for flu season

You've probably been reading a lot more about H1N1 lately, as the flu season approaches.



Last week, USA Today's opinion blog featured a letter from a public health expert preaching good hygiene as the key to prevention.

Food safety, handwashing and Swine flu - OH MY part 2

I am reposting a link to an interview I did back in May on food safety in restaurants. I think it is very relevant with the on set of H1N1 - Swine Flu again this fall.

Click HERE to read the full interview. When first published the CDC tweeted a link to the story.

Back to School Time Already? Or does it just appear that way?

Well, probably not.



Usually, at this time of year, parents are rejoicing and the kids are wondering how the summer passed by so quickly. You've probably loaded up on backpacks, notebooks and a whole new wardrobe for the kids, glad to send them off to learn something more than X Box skills.



While most of the country goes back to school right after Labor Day, down here in Florida the kids went back this week with most returning to classes this past Tuesday. The private… Continue

On The Pillars Of This Earth Lies A World Without End

The ‘literati’ amongst you will instantly recognize that I shamelessly ripped off the title of this blog post from two truly epic novels by renowned author Ken Follett and if you’ve read them both, by the time you are finished reading this, you will completely understand why I chose the title I did.

What is ironic to me is that gathering the information and material for this posting was actually easier than figuring out what to title it.



If you are not willing to set aside the… Continue

Working in a restaurant means you are going to be in contact with a whole bunch of people. How do you protect yourself?

Food safety, handwashing and Swine Flu - Oh My!

Seinfeld episodes were notorious for dealing with day-to-day incidents. Some themes are classics, I myself refer to someone I know as a close-talker. Probably the one that was the scariest was Seinfeld in the men’s room, the chef came out of the stall and didn’t wash his hands and proceeded back to his kitchen.

Do I need to remove the pig over the dining room table?

I have a large and very cute pink pig balloon from the recent Cochon 555 event in Boston floating over my dining area table. He's losing helium fast. Does he have swine flu?



A friend jokingly told me yesterday: "Get out fast! You're in danger!"



This silly question is intended to point out the ridiculousness of the mass media's approach to a serious story - an approach that can only intensify the public's fear and even, perhaps, incite panic as government officials track… 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?
