"My boss needs results faster from me and I am going to have to just make my people do it soon.”



“My team doesn’t always take… Continue

Read about Ebert's struggles and triumphs at the Dining… Continue

12 Bartender Scams That are Costing You Profits

by Ian Foster



As a BEVINCO auditor, I often hear the comment that "all bartenders steal". Although sometimes it might seem to be true, that accusati on probably isn't fair.



In my experience, 25% of all bartenders are completely honest all the time and do a great job - those are the ones we all want to find and retain. The majority, probably half of all bartenders, will play by the rules as long as they believe that the operator has adequate controls in place and see that… Continue

TED: James Patten: The best computer interface? Maybe ... your hands - James Patten (2013)

"The computer is an incredibly powerful means of creative expression," says designer and TED Fellow James Patten. But right now, we interact with computers, mainly, by typing and tapping. In this nifty talk and demo, Patten imagines a more visceral, physical way to bring your thoughts and ideas to life in the digital world, taking the computer interface off the screen and putting it into your hands.

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.

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?
