Brighten Your Pearly Whites With These Powerful Foods

Reported by foodem.com, the online wholesale food marketplace-

Foods play an extremely important role in our lives, but who didn’t know that already? The foods we eat affect our mood, the way our skin looks and feels, our hair and nails, the strength of our bones, down to our teeth and gums.

Now ask yourself, what stands out the most when meeting someone for the first time? Is the way they’re dressed? Sure, that’s one thing…

JaDu Industries SKADOOSH!

When I sought out to find an iPad stand to put on the tables for BEAN Coffee Lounge, it had quickly proven to be quite difficult.  BEAN is a new Coffee concept in Seattle that is putting an iPad on every table.  Yes, an iPad on every table.  After meeting with the founder (who wears many hats, including concept development), I knew immediately that we needed a stand that was both elegant…

Square Register: iPad Point of Sale

Review by Digital Restaurant Solutions (www.updatemypos.com)

One of my clients is the owner of a coffeshop.  He runs a small unit, about 6 employees and less than $5ook in sales annually.  His biggest concerns are saving money, as he is a lower volume shop; and organizational structure, as he does not intend on managing the business full time in the long-term.

He uses an old Panasonic…

Experts Agree: Prepare for the Tightening Hospitality Talent Market

It’s been four years since we entered The Great Recession. Now, at long last, optimism about economic growth in Leisure & Hospitality and Food & Beverage is taking root.

For operators this means finding leaders who have the skills and proficiency to do the job will become harder and harder. Sourcing values and character matches will be a monumental challenge.  Operators will need to step up benefits and retention strategies, and salaries will begin to rise…

Escape from The Planet of the Social Media Apes: The Burnout

The joints of their knuckles ached. Their wrists were stiff as the first sign of primate related Carpal Tunnel Syndrome waged war on their usually limber joints. Many of the Apes had gone to be fitted for reading glasses as the hours spent in front of computers had taken its toll. The hunt for those filthy human pests,…

When It Comes to Service - THEY GET IT!

 

 

We’ve been traveling for a week and we’ve had the opportunity to experience all kinds of customer service from airports to cabs to village restaurants.  I have to admit if I net it out there was more good than bad.  It probably helped that we spent most of our travel time cruising the Caribbean aboard The Liberty of the Seas!

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)

Pick up a book, magazine or screen, and more than likely you'll come across some typography designed by Matthew Carter. In this charming talk, the man behind typefaces such as Verdana, Georgia and Bell Centennial (designed just for phone books -- remember them?), takes us on a spin through a career focused on the very last pixel of each letter of a font.
