Please Join me in Congratulating Anthony (GM), Phillip, Theresa, Greg, Amanda (PTM) and Ivette (Regional PTM) On their success yesterday in the city wide Chili Cook-Off. There were over 20 contributors to the contest and chains involved included Texas Roadhouse, Long Horn, Red Robin, Three Brothers, Super Suppers Restaurant, Monterey Mexican Restaurant, Outback, Jasper's, California Tortilla, Hard Times Cafe and Glory Day's. There were five awards to be handed out at the competition. Four of the awards were decided on by a distinguished panel of celebrity judges from the
local government and community. Those awards were Spiciest, Most Unique, Best Overall and Judges Choice. The fifth award was to be decided by all of the patrons that attended the event that day. It was named the Peoples Choice Award. The team from Bowie made it a priority to represent the brand in "Best In Class" fashion. The Décor of the booth blew away all of the other competitors and the Specialty Chili that GM Anthony Hamilton put together using our Uno Chili as a base was a huge hit. The regional and local PTM's brilliantly utilized the event as a forum to explain to the crowd of over 500 our sincere desire to build our relationship with the city and local community groups. The team made many new friends and represented the brand very well. At the end of the day when the awards were announced the Bowie Uno's team took home all five awards. Needless to say I am extremely proud of their performance. This is exactly the type of representation that we need at a Regional, Divisional and Company level.

TED TALKS VIDEO

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.

TED: David Brooks: Should you live for your résumé ... or your eulogy? - David Brooks (2014)

Within each of us are two selves, suggests David Brooks in this meditative short talk: the self who craves success, who builds a résumé, and the self who seeks connection, community, love -- the values that make for a great eulogy. (Joseph Soloveitchik has called these selves "Adam I" and "Adam II.") Brooks asks: Can we balance these two selves?

TED: David Sengeh: The sore problem of prosthetic limbs - David Sengeh (2014)

What drove David Sengeh to create a more comfortable prosthetic limb? He grew up in Sierra Leone, and too many of the people he loves are missing limbs after the brutal civil war there. When he noticed that people who had prosthetics weren’t actually wearing them, the TED Fellow set out to discover why — and to solve the problem with his team from the MIT Media Lab.
