Rooftop Garden - A Substantial Way to Supply Greens for Restaurants

If you run an urban restaurant, very likely, you have vegetable delivered to your location. Have you considered growing your own vegetables on the roof? This video news shows us how a restaurant in Manhattan can provide enough green supplies for its operations. If every restaurant is taking this green initiative, restaurants will have better controls on the quantitative and quality of vegetable suppliers; cities will also become greener. When I visit Manhattan next time, I will give this restaurant a trial to support its green effort.

  1. I think that this is such a great idea and that it will definitely catch on with more restaurants in the near future. It definitely takes a lot of time to grow your own food for your restaurant and it would be expensive at first to initiate, but I think that eventually it would end up being cheaper than having everything shipped in. This also gives the restaurant owner complete control over the quality and safety of the food they serve. The water system is very efficient because it eliminates plant diseases and pests that can live in the soil. It is very unconventional and would take a lot of monitoring but in the end I think that it would be worth it.

    If more restaurants started doing this it would also cut down on the amount of fossil fuel used to transport food all across the country. Food is shipped all over the country all the time so that people everywhere can have any type of produce all year long, even if it isn’t in season. This would eliminate some of that travel time and help cut down on pollution.

    This is coming at a time when lots of people are supporting local and fresh foods so I think that more restaurants will start to do it as well. I heard about office buildings putting gardens on their roof in order to cool the building down and use less air conditioning so this is another positive aspect of this concept.

  2. I feel that John Moony has a very clever idea with the whole growing your own vegetables concept. I think that it would save him a lot of money to grow his own vegetables and produce rather than going to a local grocery store. His unique idea will probably attract a lot of people in New York City and because it is so original, I feel that the people who go, will definitely be satisfied with Moony’s food. I believe that his salads will be very fresh and clean since he hand picks his own grown greens. It also seems very convenient for his garden to be on the rooftop, however investing in an elevator would probably be a good idea instead of walking those 6 flights of stairs. The only problem I see with his new concept is, being able to maintain his garden under harsh weather conditions. Also, if his new restaurant business attracts many people, he would probably have to hire more employees to assist him in preserving his garden and making sure everything is taken care of, which will increase his labor cost. Aside from that, I think that this new idea of being cost efficient and somewhat eco friendly is a very clever idea.

The challenges of SB 93 (California Senate Bill No. 93) will impose on the employers and their human resource management team (by Brittany Schaffer)

The COVID-19 pandemic started in early 2020, and it has caused massive changes within a short period of time. One of the most rememberable effects of the COVID-19 pandemic was that businesses had to come to a complete halt, forcing them to lay off employees. California's unemployment rates went up.  Now that the stay-at-home orders have lifted, people start to come out. Businesses are now reopening, looking to rehire their laid-off employees. Before the pandemic, employers had the option of recalling only a certain number of laid-off employees they would want to rehire based on employees' job performance. That option had been changed after Governor Gavin Newsome signed into law - Senate Bill 93, which went into effect on April 16th, 2021. The California Senate Bill No. 93 (SB 93) According to SB 93, companies in specific industries, mainly the hospitality industry, have the obligation to provide job opportunities in written form to qualified employees being laid off due to COVI

The complicated situation of tattoos in the workplace (by Harry Law)

Tattoos are a form of expression that convey the individuality of their owners. They can represent a multitude of things, like a tie to a family member, a favorite quote with a special meaning, or even a favorite cartoon character. Tattoos also can carry great cultural and/or religious significance. Every tattoo is unique and says something about the individual person who wears it. The problem that many companies face is when a tattoo is considered appropriate and when it should be covered.  Employees are after all the faces of a company, so the tattoos on their bodies are connected to and represent that company as well. Some workplaces have instituted rules and regulations when it comes to their employees’ tattoos, but there can be negative consequences when a company goes too far in telling their employees what they can and cannot do with their own bodies. The Disney Company has recently changed its policy on tattoos. Disney’s goal is to create a magical, fantasy experience for their
