A high school in Appleton, Wisconsin tried an experiment under the enlightened guidance of theirRead More principal, LuAnn Coenen. She wanted to see if she could positively affect the fighting, weapons-carrying and general lack of focus and discipline in the school by changing the food the kids ate. Vending machines were replaced with water coolers; hamburgers and French fries were taken off the menu and replaced with fresh vegetables and fruit, whole grain breads and a salad bar. With the departure of junk food, she also saw the departure of vandalism, litter and the need for police patrolling her hallways. The students were calm, socially engaged and focused on their schoolwork. Problems were minimal. And all Ms. Coenen did was change the menu!

Tipping a waitress or waiter is one of I can say a generous act of giving something to make otherRead More people happy on what they are doing, like serving the customer in a very satisfying way they can give. Whether you work in a bar, fine restaurant, cafe, or greasy spoon, your job is first and foremost a sales job. The more you sell, the better your tips will be. It is customary in the U.S. to tip 15%-20% of the bill, before any taxes. As with other types of sales, a good waitress will improve her take-home pay by improving her skills. Some people think that waiting tables is easy. They are mistaken – isn’t it. It takes far more than a winning smile or pleasant manners to do the job well.
