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

Marketing Meltdown: The Week That Wasn’t

There comes a time, particularly towards the end of the summer, when you just don’t care anymore. I’m not saying that in a bad way or in a “goodbye cruel world” tone but, rather an “it’s the end of the summer, no one is around/it’s about to get really busy/I need to step back and recharge” kind of way.



Not such a bad thing really.



It’s one of those weeks where the weather was gorgeous yet I was stuck indoors, at a…

Random Acts of Awesomeness! Leveraging Your WOW Factor in the Eyes of Your Guests

When you wake up in the morning do you ever have the urge to just step out into the community and do something good? You know something along the lines of delivering sandwiches to those in need or running around and giving hugs to store employees who put in a solid days work?



Well if you have, then you are one step ahead of your competition in amplifying your community “WOW Factor”! A lot of restaurants want to get out there and do “stuff” that make them look like they “get it” but… Continue

Random Acts of Awesomeness

Ran-dom Acts of Awes-ome-ness:



1. Making someone’s day, making them smile, or blush when they least expect it.

2. Revealing someone else’s or your own “Awesomeness”



I dig the high I get from giving, making someone’s day and plain just being a good human being. If we did it more we’d be happier people. Our self esteem, relationships, work life and sex life would all improve.



Here are just a few of my favorite random acts of… 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)

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.
