The fastest way to lose 15 lbs is to jump in a time machine and head back ten years! Or just act that way.

Hey Mark - thanks for the kudos. I fully intend to convert those points into dollars, it's part of my overall world domination plot ;)

Yes, Diane is still VP of Marketing down in Kennesaw. Although I don't interact with her much being on the sales side...I hear nothing but great praise for her from others. She a friend of yours?

If you like Toscana, you could contact Enoteca Pinchiorri, top Florence restaurant, or Gambero rosso of S. Vincenzo (one of Italian top restaurants) to write a not stereotyped recipe book togheter ;)

Hi Mark, thanks for invitation.

About your question, what kind of Italian cuisine interest you? Regional, classic, creative, seafish, meat, pasta, vegetable...?
Italian cuisine is very rich!

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.

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?
