I met Luis Martínez working as an election inspector in Rochester during the primary on June 22, 2021. It was clear he was living a life of purpose to help others turn dreams into goals and then into reality. Playing to win, as opposed to playing not to lose, is a life lesson Luis learned from his mother. This TED-X talk was delivered in 2015.
Luis worked as the Xerox Vice President of Human Resources, Worldwide Manufacturing from 1996 to 2001, working at Xerox from 1996 until 2008. He has held many other influential positions throughout his career.
He is a writer for several sports car racing magazines and has written and published over 100+ articles on business topics. Luis continues to race Porsche cars and coaches drivers. He is currently the Managing Principal for Human Capital Strategy Partners.
The good news is that this speeds the time of completion and lowers home building costs. And this is good for the homeless and those without adequate, affordable. housing. The not-so-good news may be that this could displace or eliminate thousands of good construction jobs.
The following link is to an article published by the City Newspaper, Rochester, NY on April 16, 2021. It tells the horrific story of the Grand Jury process that the Rochester Police did not kill or contribute to the death of Daniel Prude.
Should Grand Juries be allowed to continue, or is this simply a means of subverting justice to maintain the status quo? What are your thoughts?
Today there was a non-violent demonstration at the local Wegmans grocery store marking the one–year anniversary of the death of Daniel Prude.
The conduct of the Rochester Police Dept. that led to the death of Daniel Prude was criminal. There has been worldwide coverage of the incident, and graphic video of the police bodycam of the arrest. He was naked, it was in the middle of the night, freezing cold and he was obviously mentally distraught and posed no danger to the officers.
Fast-forward to a somewhat similar situation involving a nine-year-old girl, several months later, but again in winter. The girl was distraught, defiant, and again there was graphic bodycam video of the scene.
One led to death, and the other subdued a young girl who was also having mental issues. Police in every city in the nation deal with a variety of emergency situations. In the case of the nine-year-old girl, I maintain that the majority of the problems were from her family and a history of mental illness and abuse at the hands of her mother and father. Could it have been dealt with without pepper spray? Perhaps. I invite your comments.
The real tragedy in this George Floyd’s death cannot be encapsulated in words. There are no heroes, no words of wisdom. Just an entire nation which was already reeling from a world-wide pandemic, now driven further apart in fear, violence and disbelief.
Here are two video accounts of the George Floyd death, one from the New York Times and the other from Candace Owens, a black conservative woman. The truth? Sometimes we can’t handle shades of gray.
