Dairy Market Confusion

The chart of the week is the Wisconsin Dairy Cow for Slaughter Market. Dairy cow slaughter prices typically fluctuate with dairy farmer profitability and are a solid indicator of the building or the contraction of the dairy cow herd. And the size of the dairy cow herd is important because it greatly impacts milk production and thus the supply of cheese, butter and other dairy products.

Will the tight grain supply situation end anytime soon?

The chart of the week is major grain ending stock levels as a percent of use for the next few years which are solid indicators of forthcoming grain prices.

Ending stocks are what's left over at the end of the business day on the last day of the respective crop year. This week the USDA released their first farmer surveyed planting intention estimates… Continue

Greening The Restaurant Equipment Scene

To steal a fashion-week phrase, “green is the new black.” Going efficient is becoming more and more mainstream, and restaurateurs are finding out that it’s about saving money as much as it is about saving the planet. (Oh, and it doesn’t hurt that many potential customers take a keen interest in the issue, too!)



The National Restaurant Association recently released the results of an informal poll, asking what “green” measure made the most business sense to restaurateurs. The results… Continue

TED TALKS VIDEO

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.

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.
