Here are a few highlights from the past week on AOA:
+ Is it possible that good design is the key to electoral success? (Probably not, but it's fun to guess...)
+ There's a detailed proposal for car sharing in the Capital Region.
+ Daniel says the Flying Chicken in Troy is no ordinary fried chicken place.
+ A huge new cancer prevention study is looking for participants in the Albany area.
+ After eyebrows were raised about the pay for UAlbany's new president, we looked at what college presidents in the Capital Region make and how it compares.
+ What was up in the Neighborhood this week: a flying giant clog, surviving the Battenkill, college rankings, wills, cider donuts, offending curry, a breakfast panino, lunch redemption, Joe's Crab Shack, Moby Rick's, apples, food swap, LarkFest, Bannerman's Castle, threads, and a moment in Menands.
+ Looking ahead to winter, Kara asked about where to find a steam room.
+ Downtown Schenectady has a new third Friday series.
+ We gave a great basket of local products for the Local Harvest Festival by asking people: What are you hoping to harvest this fall? (There were a lot of good answers!)
+ A few of the items found on Craigslist this week: easily annoyed punk rock girls at the front of the line, a welcome ogling, buttons -- lots of buttons, and something with a lot of cubbies.
+ Tim created a map of vacant buildings in Albany.
+ And Phantogram's playing at Pearl Palooza in downtown Albany on Saturday. (One of many things to do this weekend.)
