Once seated, you’re told that the first series of courses will be bite-size treats intended to awaken the palate. “That’s where we attack you with lots of small servings,” is how Nutter describes the “snack” portion of the meal. Ours began with a playful surprise: The first course was tucked inside the table’s gorgeous and seemingly innocuous flower arrangement–flatbread shaped like the branch of a tree. This was followed quickly by, among other items, reindeer moss with mushroom powder; crispy pork skin with black currant Juice; barbecue carrots with sorrel sauce and hay ash; and smoked and pickled quail’s eggs (all of these dishes are pictured in the gallery above). … [Read more...] about How The Best Restaurant In The World Stays That Way

How to react: This has happened more times than I can count! Should your child appear, do not try to ignore them or act like nothing is happening—all parents know that won’t solve anything. Personally, I have had great interviews with parents who have introduced their children during our conversations. It humanizes you, and if the interviewer is a parent themselves, it creates a common bond. Moreover, if the interviewer doesn’t handle this well, it’s a great opportunity for you to gain insight into what your future might look like working for an unsupportive boss (or company). It’s also a great opportunity for you to show how you operate in stressful situations. … [Read more...] about You have a job interview over Zoom. The kids are home. Now what?
While the $900 billion stimulus bill that just passed earmarked $10 billion for childcare funding, advocates say that’s just a fraction of what the industry needs to survive this period, which is believed to be in the range of $50 billion. Biden’s plan calls for increasing pay and benefits for existing childcare workers and creating 1.5 million new jobs in the industry—good jobs that would secure affordable healthcare and paid family leave for a workforce that has historically been underpaid. Another proposal is to build more childcare centers and encourage businesses to invest in on-site childcare through a construction tax credit. … [Read more...] about We’re in the midst of a caregiving crisis.

When I took engineering during my freshman year, I hoped it would give me the tools and process to develop those kinds of ideas. Instead, we focused on building a solution without first examining the problem. We learned how to draw blueprints from all angles and the names of different mechanics such as pulleys, gears, and levers. We ended the year by using shop tools, such as saws and lathes, to make simple mechanical objects and then using those skills to create one large project such as a mini-car or a primitive clock. We learned how to follow instructions to turn an idea into a prototype, and while that’s a useful skill to have, I think engineering is much more than that. … [Read more...] about I’m a high school sophomore.

So, the wacky MailChimp vibe has always rode shotgun with a serious, deliberate approach to growth. As Chestnut outlined in a recent blog post, the company has been a classic case of an overnight sensation–10 years in the making. At the outset, the company focused on building a paid customer base, and on profits. MailChimp went “freemium” in September 2009 and increased the number of paying clients by 150 percent, while growing profitability a whopping 650 percent during its first 12 months. Enterprise email is today a key area of growth; more than 20 percent of MailChimp subscribers have email lists with more than 10,000 subscribers. … [Read more...] about Creative Cultures: MailChimp Grants Employees “Permission To Be Creative”
