Unfortunately i do not know too much if anything about being able to come to Canada from Australia to work. There are plenty of jobs in Western Canada - in particular in Saskatchewan and Alberta at the moment. Most restaurants are hiring in all categories as it is difficult to find people to work.
Please let me know any specifics of what kind of help you require and i will do what i can to find information and or contacts to help you come to Canada.

Just wanted to let you know that I have changed the name of the Portland Food Network to the Pacific NorthWest Food Network. I wanted to broaden the scope and geography of it all. There is a lot more going on than just Portland/Oregon. Invite your friends to the group and start posting. (I know it says portlandfoodnetwork, but I could not change that part)

HI Randy, I was just thinking about starting a book club group, so I'm glad to see you already have one going. I'm looking forward to reading your posts - lots of great ideas. I wrote my first blog, please take a look on my page - "The Power of Teddy Bears and Gift Cards". Take care, John

My web company is asking that I optimize certain cities for our site, is it worth the money and if so, does it really get me to the top of the pages and categories? I will take your advice and get a blog going, but you have to promise to read it and comment, deal?

Hi Randy,

Love your posts! I spoke with Roy today and he said that you beat him out in forming a marketing group! Funny. He's a great guy.

I also wanted to thank you for your contribution to FohBoh and feedback to Ted on Beta bugs! There is a ton of customization so far and more to come, as Ted continues to write the code.

Hi Randy,
Thanks for getting back to me. Just about any content you wanted to provide would be fine. Much like your blog posts on this site-actually we could probably use them.
If you haven't visited my website as yet, please do. I would like to offer you a complimentary listing under consultants. www.restaurantresourcesonline.com.

Hey Randy,
We have a website designed to assist restaurant owners/operators find the product, services and info they need to be successful.
Would you like to provide a newsletter or article occasionally?

Hello Randy, thanks for the articles you've been posting here. I'd be interested in talking with you about the use of social networking for restaurant marketing. My team is putting together a video series on web marketing for restaurants and we might be able to partner for one.

Hey Randy, thanks for responding. Well, let's just say it has been a roller coaster so far, but so exciting. Starting any business is tough and it just sucks you in. I have learned so far that you can do everything just right and that your website can look as great as you want it to look and do everything you want it to do, but if you don't know what the best way to market it, it does you no good. Go to www.restaurantconsulting101.com and check out the preview page. Do you have any ideas on how I can overcome this mountain of getting the "word" out there in cyperspace for this unique niche of independent restaurateurs, without having to spend a lot of money or better yet, no $ at all?

Hi, My name is Veronique and I am brand new to the site. I have found your specialties and interests very interesting as I am starting a new web based restaurant consulting business and I am right in the middle of trying to figure out how to take advantage of marketing using online applications to do so. Do you have any suggestions on how to try to get the word out?

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.
