Site not right for Holocaust museum

first_imgRe March 26 article, “Couple opposes planned museum”: I agree wholeheartedly with Bob and Sheila DiSarro that the Capital District Jewish Holocaust Museum does not belong in a residential neighborhood, nor should it be put next to a Catholic cemetery.Look, without a doubt the Holocaust was one of the worse cases of man’s inhumanity to man and should never ever be forgotten. This is just not the location for it.On the other hand, if Niskayuna approves this site, the Catholic Diocese could donate more land and erect a memorial for victims of sexual abuse at the hands of some of the sickest individuals in this country.Maybe it could include a wall of shame listing the names of the priests who committed these atrocities. Then again, there’s probably not enough room left in Niskayuna for such a wall.Ray WeidmanLathamMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesEDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?

A Recount of the Origin of Do More Faster

first_imgProductivity constraints at a business usually concern delivering on a short period of time. That’s the proverbial challenge, doing more with less. Or in this case, doing more faster. At a startup, this should always be your main concern. Startups move at a million miles per hour. They can be born overnight, but they can fade out just as quickly. Release planning is one area where doing more faster can be most beneficial. You want quick iterations whenever possible. And this principal is the perfect catalyst for this.Scaling a business, especially a startup, needs to be done with speed. On the door of the CEO of TechStar’s office is a sign that reads “Do more faster.” And there is a tradition in the company to physically slap the sign, acknowledging its importance and relevance. This is the sort of thought leadership that reverberates throughout a company.Certainly, the productivity associated with doing more faster can be a boost to any company that buys into the mantra.
