Connect Social Media Accounts to Your Restaurant’s Mobile Website

It is well known in the restaurant industry that one of the most striking differences between independent and chain restaurants is the sense of urgency placed on analyzing financial information. Chain restaurants tend to have faster reporting at the end of financial periods, along with more frequent reporting and analysis. Additionally, they tend to monitor (and take action on) a greater number of key performance indicators. Those factors give chain restaurants an edge at squeezing…

PizzaExpo - Google & Pizza Online Marketing

First off, if you have a website for your pizza place you almost have to put Google Analytics on it.  It’s free, it’s easy to install on your website (shouldn’t cost you more than $50 - $100 to get a web designer/programmer to add the code if you’re not tech savvy).  It can tell you a lot of things about your website like how many people come to your website, where they come from, but it can tell you a whole lot more than that.  If you’re…

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.
