We need a math whiz to provide advice for the Ultimate Guide. The Ultimate Guide (UG) is a database of San Francisco Bay Area restaurants providing vegan and vegetarian food in the SF Bay Area, as well as businesses owned by vegetarians.
The goal of UG is to promote eating veg by making it as simple as possible to find restaurants serving veg food. To support the best restaurants based on your reviews, it creates the Top Ten list of veg restaurants. This is currently a straight average (total number of points divided by number of reviews).
Millennium has 34 reviews and a rating (average) of 4.34
Udupi Palace has 9 reviews and a rating (average) of 4.33
We need a math whiz to help us create a formula that also reflects the number of reviews the restaurant has, as well, in the final rating.
And if you’ve got a website or blog or email signature, please link back to The Ultimate Guide – help us promote veg eating!

Animal Place shared their announcement about Rescue Ranch with us last week, and today we heard they’re hiring too!
Animal Place is moving from their 60-acre property in Vacaville to a 600-acre sanctuary in Grass Valley, California. In an incredible turn of events, an anonymous generous donor provided the funds for Animal Place to retain the 60-acre property. The Vacaville property will be the home of Rescue Ranch, a project of Animal Place. It will serve as a farmed animal adoption center. This new program will permit Animal Place to provide farmed animals with two options: Placement into a new home or permanent sanctuary in Grass Valley. Of course, Animal Place will continue to educate and advocate on behalf of the billions of farmed animals who will never know either a home or a safe haven.
Now Hiring: Rescue Ranch Manager
Responsible for the oversight of Rescue Ranch adoption and placement program, care of the 60-acre property, management of volunteers, interns and possible animal care staff, and communications with farmers and shelters.
