TV show, video, ebooks...all on the art of conversation and how to get more comfortable speaking to people at work and in a social setting. 
My friend and fellow Communication Expert Mark Bowden was recently on the TV show The Social, and revealed some great verbal and non-verbal communication tips for us to use or avoid when in conversation. Many people have a difficult time with the art of small talk, not only with getting the ...

Improve your body language, improve your confidence! The way that you move your body and walk has an enormous effect on the way that you feel and your confidence levels. Let's start with an exercise. Imagine there are two people standing in front of you – one with “negative body language” and ...

An older post, but a good one on the effects of a negative person on your life. 
The people who you have the most contact with and hang around will have either a positive or negative affect on your levels of self-esteem and confidence. We all know those people who are positive, happy and joyful to be around. How do they make you feel? Yes, they make you feel the same!

Yes he did! 😈
 
Apologize that it's not directly Star Wars related. Figure it's worth a share though.

I have been going here on and off over the past few years. They change menus, of course, sometimes to my chagrin, but all in all it's a fun place to stop in and drink some sake and Kirin, listen to funky music and order some food. It has decent yakitori and other dishes. This is not a sushi restaurant - it's an izakaya, so don't expect it to be a "McSushi". I have found for the most part the staff are very friendly and polite, and the food tasty. I don't mind paying a little extra $$ if the food and service match.

I have only been here twice (as of this post), and am no expert on this type of food. All I can tell you is that I really, really liked it! The lunch specials are great and the staff was friendly and calm, which I like. I took my wife here and a business associate - they liked it too. I will be back. :)

I like the vast selection and that it's a nice alternative to ice cream. It's fun and friendly.

I used to go here often as my Japanese wife used to work here a long time ago when she first came to Toronto. Japanese owned and run - what more do you need to hear? Excellent family style cooking and you will love the fresh ingredients. This is where REAL Japanese sushi is, not the fake stuff choking Toronto. You will pay more but you will get more in quality of food and service.

I led a group of 9 people here for the first time recently when we booked a lunch on a Friday afternoon. All in all the food was really, really good! All of us were very satisfied with the flavour and portion sizes. Personally I had gumbo, calamari and catfish, washed down with Steamwhistle. The waitress didn't even freak out when the group decided at the end to go separate bills instead of group, and we agreed she could add the 15% auto tip to each individual bill. A very good first experience and I will be back for sure. The reason I gave it 4 stars and not 5 is because they never seem to have alligator available. We really wanted to try, but were denied. If you are going to call yourself N'Awlins, then you have to stock up on Gator!

My wife and I come here because it's a pub that does not serve horrible food like most pubs! They actually seem to care about food quality and presentation! I hope they do not cheap-out. We love their food, their selection and their unique beers and ciders. The staff are also friendly and attentive. We are happy to bring our friends and family here, because we know they will have a great time!
