    Heart, you are about to discover that there are 57 different ways to deliver the word “Yum” and that you will have to try all of them to find the one the director wanted.

    Our top audition choir had a couple of boys who couldn’t carry a tune. They couldn’t get enough boys to try out, so they had to take what they could get. The good singers drowned them out in concerts, but you could definitely hear them during practices.

    Layoffs are completely normal when new management comes on board. So is aligning the company to a new vision and letting go those who aren’t onboard with it.

    Getting rid of 75% of the workforce within weeks is pretty extreme. Odds are that there was no time to determine who was a good worker aligned with the new vision and plan and who was not.

    Twitter is doing far more than just laying people off. For those who don’t leave, they are expected to dedicate every waking hour to work. Not to mention that any complaint about the company or management will get them fired and that there is rampant speculation the company may fold due to the erratic management approach.

    Not if you hang them using wire twist ties…usually.

    There is a little truth to this. My daughter’s friend asked us for a set of Harry Potter books for her birthday. We got them for her, but so did her uncle. Luckily, it wasn’t the only thing we got her. And my older daughter will have her own set instead of borrowing mine.
