“Doodling…to Doodle”

 

A cool word with important implications.

 

"Doodling" is often perceived as wasteful and a reflection of boredom. But Sunni Brown gave a fun presentation at the TED Conference in March 2011, promoting the importance and benefits of doodling:

If you're not familiar with TED, the letters stand for Technology, Entertainment, Design; and the conferences have become a worldwide phenomenon for exchanging innovative ideas.

 

Perhaps we should all doodle a bit more!

“Man vs. Food”

 

Bad Timing, Bad Idea

 

There's a television series called "Man vs. Food" on the Travel Channel. It features an overweight loudmouth who travels around the country and challenges the eating records of restaurants and bars that promote overeating…oversized and over-portioned anything and everything. 

 

All amid the cheers from a crowd of assembled patrons.

 

This strikes me as a very bad idea at a time when sensible, smart food people are trying to combat our nation's massive obesity problem. Biggest is not betterest!
