This week the The Best of Car Talk, how do Tom and Ray celebrate Valentine’s day? With gifts likely to earn them each a few nights sleeping in the garage! But, in classic, ´´those who can’t do” fashion, they’re happy to give college student Zoey tips for meeting the cute guy working in her dorm. In matters more technical (yet still wacko!), Ed needs help choosing an engine for the Miata-sized airplane he’s building in his garage; and, Mary just bought a vintage Ford Galaxy sight unseen, and now she´s scouting the area rest homes for a mechanic to work on it. Also, on Stump the Chumps, we find out if ´´Fred” ever confessed to his wife that he hates the Saab she bought him as a surprise gift. All this and more, this week on The Best of Car Talk.

Tyler Cowen, widely acclaimed economist, wants the world to know that just about everything they´ve heard about how to get good food is wrong. Drawing on a provocative range of examples from around the world, Cowen reveals why airplane food is bad, but airport food is improving. Why restaurants full of happy, attractive people usually serve mediocre meals and why American food has improved exponentially as Americans have begun to drink more wine. At a time when obesity is on the rise, Cowen´s expose will appeal to everyone who is concerned with global economics and good food.
Why is 1001 Ways to Reward Employees, with over 1.4 million copies in print, such an extraordinary best-seller? Because a little over 10 years ago, Bob Nelson took the seeds of an idea and turned it into something indispensable for business. The idea? That it´s not a raise that motivates an employee, and it´s not a promotion. What really sparks a person to perform are those intangible, unexpected gestures that signify real appreciation for a job well done. Now, after having worked with thousands of organizations in the years since 1001 Ways to Reward was first published, Bob Nelson presents a second edition packed with hundreds of new ideas and examples of how companies are using rewards and recognitions to boost productivity and keep their valued employees happy. Airplane mechanics are rewarded with balloons and pinwheels. Another manager calls his employees´ mothers and thanks them for raising such industrious children. There are ideas from the offbeat (The Margarita Award) to the company-wide (a quiet room) to the embarrassingly simple (a hand-written thank you note) to the wacky (the Laugh-a-Day challenge) to the formal (a two-week promotion to special assistant to the president). Each section includes no-cost rewards and low-cost rewards, both public and private, making this new edition an indispensable resource for making the person / achievement / reward equation work. 1.

One of the most influential economists of the decade - and the New York Times best-selling author of The Great Stagnation - boldly argues that just about everything you´ve heard about food is wrong. Food snobbery is killing entrepreneurship and innovation, says economist, preeminent social commentator, and maverick dining-guide blogger Tyler Cowen. Americans are becoming angry that our agricultural practices have led to global warming - but while food snobs are right that local food tastes better, they´re wrong that it is better for the environment, and they are wrong that cheap food is bad food. The food world needs to know that you don´t have to spend more to eat healthy, green, exciting meals. At last, some good news from an economist! Tyler Cowen discusses everything from slow food to fast food, from agriculture to gourmet culture, from modernist cuisine to how to pick the best street vendor. He shows why airplane food is bad but airport food is good; why restaurants full of happy, attractive people serve mediocre meals; and why American food has improved as Americans drink more wine. And most important of all, he shows how to get good, cheap eats just about anywhere. Just as The Great Stagnation was Cowen´s response to all the fashionable thinking about the economic crisis, An Economist Gets Lunch is his response to all the fashionable thinking about food. Provocative, incisive, and as enjoyable as a juicy, grass-fed burger, it will influence what you choose to eat today and how we feed the world tomorrow. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Stephen Hoye.
