POSITRACTION: Saying “thanks” sooner or later

2015-Mar-08

Official TWS Member Publication : U.S. Air Force Edition

Parallel Lives, Shared History

Herb Heilbrun and John Leahr were twenty-one when the United States entered WWII. Herb became an Army Air Forces B-17 bomber pilot. John flew P-51 fighters. Both were thrown into the brutal high-altitude bomber war against Nazi Germany, though they never met because the Army was rigidly segregated – only in the air were black and white American fliers allowed to mix.

Both came safely home but it took a chance meeting 20 years ago when the two retired salesmen met at a reunion of the Tuskegee Airmen in Cincinnati. That meeting led them to review their parallel lives and discover their shared history.

It began in 1995 when Herb read in the newspaper that the city was honoring the local chapter of the Tuskegee Airmen; the all-black 332nd Fighter Group. They flew “Red-Tail” P-51s on missions escorting bomber squadrons from Italy into Germany and German held territories. Herb could still remember hearing, amid the radio chatter over the target, the distinctive voices of the Tuskegee Airmen. He felt that his thanks were overdue.

So Herb went down to the hotel where they were having a reception and told somebody he flew B-17s in Europe during WW II and that the Tuskegee Airmen escorted him. He then asked if there was a fighter pilot around that was over there and that he’d like to give him a hug for saving his behind. One guy pointed telling him there was a fellow standing across the room that he thinks flew fighters.

The man was John Leahr. When the two were introduced, Herb hugged John and said, “I’ve been waiting 50 years to meet one of you guys. You saved my tail on many a day.” John, who felt for many years that the nation he had served had paid him back with prejudice and discrimination, had been waiting just as long for one of those white bomber pilots to come along and say thanks. That was all he ever wanted. …

2015-Mar-07

Every once in quarter, their distribution system seems to bog.

I usually get the notice to approve the distribution a few minutes after I upload the issue.

Tonight it’s been an hour.

Of course, MAILCHIP is out without a problem.

And, the issue is available at http://www.jasperjottings.com/ and http://jasperjottingsweekly.com/

Argh!

Folks that are on Yahoo, may want to switch to MAILCHIMP.

Good Afternoon All,

Just a couple more requests for your so generous prayers.

Mike McEneney asks for your prayers for Marie who has been diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. We pray the the MDs are able to help her.

I ask for your prayers once again for our Niece , Heather, and her Family. Heather’s tests after her surgery came back and they show that the masses removed are malignant. The MDs are now qualifying Cancer Stages in a new format (we are told) and Heather is at Stage 1C which looked at with an open mind and heart gives hope. Heather and her Family are indeed hopeful and trusting in God as always. Please keep them in your prayers and raise the volume thatHeather in her fight with Cancer is successful once again.

McCarra-Fitzpatrick Family

*** begin quote ***

Our son Aidan was born on 5th June 2000, a millennial baby. The pregnancy, my first, at age 33, progressed normally, and I worked up until two days before my due date. Labor and delivery went smoothly; I did have an epidural for pain relief, and I recall asking the doctor what Aidan’s Apgar score was and being told that it was nine.

I remember, so clearly, when I went to the nursery, and the nurse was holding him, and he was crying, loudly, but as soon as I took him into my arms he quieted right down and I knew that, in some very basic and visceral manner, he knew me and was connected to me. I filled his baby book with all the bits and pieces of information about him, what gifts he received from relatives and friends, pasting in the birth announcement and the invitation to his christening. I was Aidan’s primary caretaker; my husband was, at that time, working in a Manhattan hotel (audio-visual services for conferences/meetings) so his schedule was often irregular, with very early mornings and very late evenings. We had decided that I would stay at home with Aidan until he was old enough to attend school.

Aidan and I stuck close to home, walking to our local park, and, on the weekend, visiting with Mark’s parents in Manhattan, avoiding bringing him to places, such as malls and churches, that would have large groups of people, since he was so little and we did not want to expose him to anyone who might be ill. He wasn’t put into daycare or left with a babysitter.

I recall, vividly, when doing one of his nighttime feedings, that our eyes locked and he was gazing steadily at me. His appetite was good and he thrived, and, as a matter of course, we brought him for his well-visits to our local paediatrician, who we had met with prior to Aidan’s being born. There was never any concern about his weight or any of his measurements, and he seemed to be progressing, happy and healthy, in those months leading up to his first birthday. His paediatrician did not, at any time, note that his behavior diverged from that of any other typically developing child, nor did his Grandparents or Aunt and Uncle note anything amiss in him.

While I realize it is a controversial subject, I do believe my son suffered an adverse reaction to the vaccines administered to him just before his first birthday. The last time I remember him showing connectedness to us was on a trip we took to Bar Harbor, Maine. We had rented a small cottage around which were scattered picnic tables. The playpen Aidan was in had been placed next to one of the windows, so that he could see us sitting, outside, a small distance away. I remember his crying in distress when he realized that we were separated, so I returned to the cottage to hold him. The time would shortly come when he would no longer seek me out for comfort.

Joseph is survived by his son, Jim Callan and his daughter, Teresa Orth, as well as his son-in-law, John Orth and two cherished grandsons, Geoffrey and Benjamin as well as extended family both in the U.S. and Ireland. He is preceded in death by his wife, Barbara; his parents, Teresa Grant Callan and John Callan, and his siblings, Loretta Callan Boylan and Jack Callan.

Joseph was born on May 18, 1938 in NYC to Irish immigrant parents, Teresa and John, who raised their family on 96th street and all were fortunate to grow up with many loving aunts, uncles and cousins literally living within the same apartment building. Joseph often said that his family was “the best that anyone could imagine” and always credited their strong work ethic and the devotion of his parents to their children as remarkable influences on his own life.

He graduated from Manhattan College with a degree in Psychology and he later achieved his Masters from Columbia University. Much of his career focus was in the area of criminal justice first starting as an Executive Director, The Osborne Association, NYC and in the early 1980’s, he moved to Houston, Texas and accepted a position as a Director, Harris County Adult Probation. After moving back to New Jersey, in 1987, Joseph enjoyed his role as the Executive Director, Southeast Senior Center, Englewood, New Jersey as well as teaching Sociology courses at Montclair State University, Dominican College and John Jay College of Criminal Justice.

Joseph was a genuine family man. He married Barbara on June 17, 1961, and they moved from the Grand Concourse in the Bronx to River Edge, New Jersey in 1972. Joseph enjoyed being part of a small community and participated in many local organizations. He and Barbara made lifelong friends on Adams Avenue and enjoyed many an occasion with the “lunch bunch” who remain close friends to this day.

He enjoyed nothing more than spending time on the Little League fields whether coaching his son, Jim, or cheering on his grandsons from the early days of T-Ball all the way through to Williamsport tournaments. During high school basketball season, Joe always had a front row seat for all home and away games and enjoyed the post game analysis with both of his grandsons. He cheered proudly and loudly for each point scored especially the three pointers.

Joe was a voracious reader who never left home without a book whether for a trip to the mall or a cross country excursion to the Grand Canyon. He participated in a very active Current Events group at the River Edge Public Library and enjoyed reading the news and listening to the radio as he prepared for the lively discussion which would surely follow.

In recent years, he enjoyed many summers on the pier of Ocean Grove where he could be found devouring the latest suspense novel or enjoying some Days ice cream (soft serve vanilla with extra strawberries on the bottom and as a topping). And, he thoroughly enjoyed the company of his dearest friend, Marilyn Haggerty, who brought happiness back to his life as they enjoyed travel, concerts, local and Broadway theatre, museums, lovely meals and meaningful conversations together.

The family would like to thank everyone for their tremendous support and care of Joe especially Doctor Katebian, his trusted physician and friend for the last 26 years.

At Joe’s request, a celebration of his life will be held at a date to be determined in the future.

In lieu of flowers, he requested that any donations be made to the Salvation Army or the Ocean Grove Historical Society.

Fare thee well, Pop, we love you.

MFOUND: The Manhattan College Players 3/28 one night only

2015-Mar-14

http://bestevents.us/bronx-the-manhattan-college-players-present-proof/323114

*** begin quote ***

March 28, 2015 at Manhattan College in Bronx, NY.

We will be hosting a one night only play reading of the well-known play, Proof. Written by David Auburn, this Pulitzer and Tony award winning play was originally produced Off-Broadway but was moved to Broadway shortly after opening due to a high demand for tickets.

Here is the Wikipedia plot definition:

The play concerns Catherine, the daughter of Robert, a recently deceased mathematical genius in his fifties and professor at the University of Chicago, and her struggle with mathematical genius and mental illness. Catherine had cared for her father through a lengthy mental illness. Upon Robert’s death, his ex-graduate student Hal discovers a paradigm-shifting proof about prime numbers in Robert’s office. The title refers both to that proof and to the play’s central question: Can Catherine prove the proof’s authorship? Along with demonstrating the proof’s authenticity, the daughter also finds herself in a relationship with 28-year-old Hal. Throughout, the play explores Catherine’s fear of following in her father’s footsteps, both mathematically and mentally and her desperate attempts to stay in control.

Join us in Hayden 100!

NO TICKETS NEEDED!

Hollywood’s Forgotten Hero

*** begin quote ***

Yet, among all from Hollywood who served, only one became a fighter ace. That distinction belonged to actor Wayne Morris, who seemed headed for stardom in the late 1930s, after his performance in Kid Galahad, alongside Edward G. Robinson, Humphrey Bogart and Bette Davis. At 6’2″ with an athlete’s physique, Morris looked the part of a heavyweight boxer. Critics praised his “natural, realistic performance.”

Three years later, Morris decided to learn to fly in preparation for “Flight Angels,” a “B” feature from Warner Brothers, where he was under contract. While the film was largely forgettable, Morris discovered an affinity for aviation. He earned his private pilot’s license and with America’s entry into World War II, he joined the Naval Reserve. Morris completed military flight training in 1942 and (like Jimmy Stewart) was initially assigned as a flight instructor.

*** and ***

Almost a decade later, Morris mounted a career comeback, receiving good notices for playing a washed-up boxer on Broadway in William Saroyan’s The Cave Dwellers. That same year (1957), Stanley Kubrick cast Morris in Paths of Glory, as a drunken, cowardly French infantry officer in World War I. Movie-goers who knew of Morris’s record as a brave, tenacious fighter pilot appreciated the irony of Kubrick’s decision, and the actor delivered: his performance as Lt Roget is remembered as one of his finest.

Sadly, Paths would mark one of final screen appearances. During a reserve tour on the carrier Bon Homme Richard in 1959, Morris suffered a massive heart attack and died a short time later at a navy hospital in Oakland, CA. He was 45 years old.

Fifty-five years after Wayne Morris’s passing, Hollywood is speculating about this year’s competition for Best Picture, which includes American Sniper. There is general consensus that Clint Eastwood’s film about Chris Kyle will lose to one of the other entries, since many academy voters are squeamish about his depiction of the Navy SEAL sniper, who killed 160 enemy combatants with a dedication and determination that some (falsely) depict as racism.

Of course, nothing could be further from the truth. Chris Kyle understood the savagery of war, as did Wayne Morris. It’s one more reminder of how much Hollywood has changed over the past 70 years, and not for the better.

*** end quote ***

I knew this story partially from my fascination with Hollywood “war” movies as child.

I was a “child” in this respect until into the early 70’s where I saw the cost of the Viet Nam “war”, Carter’s Pardon for evaders, and the perfidy of the Gooferment, its politicians and bureaucrats, and the Crony Capitalists.

Ike warned of the military – industrial complex. I knew about the warning. But failed to heed it.

So too “Hollywood” was once populated by stand up people. During the two World Wars, if someone was too “valuable”, too infirm, or otherwise unqualified to get into the fighting, they often became “dollar a year men” working in important government posts to free others. It was a “patriotic” time.

And, just as Ike warned, the Gooferment became the fearful master. Lying propaganda from the media made it easy to lull “We, The Sheeple” to sleep.

Hard times are coming. Made harder still by the loss of “leadership”.

Hollywood is decadent, hedonistic, socialistic, and too politically correct for its own good.

No wonder they are treated as the trivialities they really are.

POSITRACTION: Why Catholics Should be Libertarian

2015-Feb-08

http://www.amazon.com/Free-Beautiful-Catholics-Should-Libertarian/dp/1475130961

Free is Beautiful: Why Catholics Should be Libertarian – April 20, 2012
by Randy England (Author)

*** begin quote ***

Free is Beautiful by Randy England uses the scriptures, the writings of the Saints and the Catechism to show why Catholicism is essentially libertarian. Only through our free will can we become virtuous and share in the divine life; knowing, loving and serving God. Centuries ago, St. Thomas Aquinas and St. Augustine recognized the futility and evil in trying to force people to be virtuous. They taught that government should limit itself to keeping the peace by protecting people’s lives and property. The golden rule teaches that we must not do to another what we would not want done to ourselves. Don’t cheat. Don’t steal. Don’t hit. Don’t harm others. Live and let live. Mind your own business.

Libertarians call this the non-aggression principle: that no person or group may initiate force against another. The modern state knows no such limits, making everyone’s business its own and leaving the individual naked before it. No matter which political party is in power, the government continues to grow unchecked, ignoring justice and fundamental rights, keeping the poor in a place of permanent dependency, while plundering the future to give favors to its friends and extending its world-wide empire through endless warfare.

It is time to consider libertarianism, the most just system in a fallen world and the only political philosophy that takes human dignity and free will seriously. Liberty will not feed a man, nor will it get him into heaven, but does guarantee him the freedom to do both.

*** end quote ***

I found this a very positive experience.

Haven’t read the whole book, but “peeks” and hearing him interview, I think he has an argument worth considering.

For me my journey to be a little L libertarian started when the Good Christian Brother (who’s name I forget) in Good Shepherd grammar school taught us about the “Just War Theory”. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Just_war_theory

Then, it was “baked in” when I read the “juvenile” science fiction of Robert Heinlein.

If we are to have “free will”, then we have to be free to make our own mistakes.

Seems like “God” is a little L libertarian.

SASB Provides Standards For Measuring Non-Financial Performance

*** begin quote ***

As the world increasingly focuses on performance measures that aren’t captured in the financial statements, it is important to have some objective standards by which to measure social and environmental impacts and ethical corporate governance. Enter the SASB.

Dr. Jean Rogers, CEO of the SASB, explains, “The information investors need to make decisions has changed. In today’s world, how effectively a company addresses sustainability issues can impact its financial position and future prospects. But investors lack access to standardized information on these increasingly significant factors.”

*** and ***

Dr. Jean Rogers is the Founder & CEO of SASB. Since 2010 SASB developed from an idea formulated in collaboration with the Harvard University Initiative for Responsible Investment at the Kennedy School of Government into a globally-respected, ANSI-accredited, independent standards-setting organization.

Jean draws upon her 20 years’ experience in sustainability and management consulting across a wide range of industries including utilities, extractives, financials, and real estate. She has worked with international clients to integrate sustainability into strategy and operations, minimizing risk and maximizing returns across the triple bottom line. Jean’s leadership experience includes 10 years as a Principal at Arup, a global engineering consultancy focused on sustainable development. Jean was also a management consultant at Deloitte, working in the environmental and manufacturing practices to help leading companies improve business and product performance through sustainability.

Jean is a former Loeb Fellow at Harvard University and holds a PhD in Environmental Engineering from the Illinois Institute of Technology, and an ME in Environmental Engineering and a BE in Civil Engineering from Manhattan College.

A baby named Jesus is born in Rachel’s parents inn in Bethlehem. A strange star appears in the night sky. Shepherds insist they’ve seen angels. Magi arrive seeking an infant King. And Herod, afraid of the threat to his power, sends soldiers to kill the baby and Rachel’s family. Suddenly everything in Rachel’s life changes. Forced to flee for their lives Rachel, her new friends Mary and Joseph and their families are thrust into an adventure that will carry them far beyond their peaceful lives. Hiding in the Magi’s caravan she will have an amazing journey. Rachel will be forced to protect those around her from Rebels, traitors, death, fire and flood. The drama, turbulence and excitement of first century Judea are seen through the eyes of characters with lives much like our own.

[JR: On a technical note, this is a most imaginative take on a story we all know. She takes it from a young girl’s view. If you have a youngster who might need a push in reading, religion, or just something “clean and wholesome”, then this is it. While not my usual reading fare I found it engaging and a fun read. It makes a good gift. I passed them out at Christmas and have received nothing but positive comments. I recommend it. And you know for a grump fat old white guy injineer to recommend a book or anything it has to be good. I’m working on her to release a Kindle version. As always, YMMV.]

Obituary
Francis J. Vincent M.D. (1928 – 2015)

SPRINGFIELD – Francis J. Vincent, M.D., 86, of Springfield died at 1:52 p.m. Friday, February 6, 2015, at his home.

Francis was born June 14, 1928, in the Bronx borough of New York City, the son of Anthony E. and Maria A. Soricelli Vincent.

Dr. Vincent was born of Italian immigrant parents and raised in the Bronx. After U.S. Army service (1946-1948), he attended and graduated from Manhattan College, New York City (1948-1952) and went on to Georgetown University School of Medicine (1952-1956), followed by additional training at Mercy Hospital, Buffalo, New York.

Dr. Vincent’s first practice was interrupted by receiving a commission in the U.S. Navy as a lieutenant (S/G) and he served as a destroyer squadron medical officer (1960-1961). Upon discharge, he resumed medical practice in New York state until 1964, when he accepted a change of location to Virginia, Illinois, and finally settled in Jacksonville.

During his 26 years of private general medical and limited surgical practice he was a member of the Morgan-Scott County Medical Society and was elected president in 1973. Between 1964 and 1990, as an attending physician at Passavant Area Memorial Hospital, Dr. Vincent served as medical staff secretary, president-elect and president. In the late 1970s, he was co-chairman of the hospital’s newly organized Emergency Services Department. In addition, he volunteered as medical consultant to The Pathway School from 1968 through 1987 and was a co-consultant for the Illinois schools for the visually and hearing impaired (1968-1976).

Apart from Dr. Vincent’s professional activities, he had a great interest in drawing, sailboat racing, airplane piloting, tennis, writing and traveling.

Soon after Dr. Vincent’s retirement from private practice, in September 1990, he became a contracted consultant for the Social Security Administration Disability Program in Springfield. In 1994, he relocated his residence to Springfield and remained working until August 2014.

Dr. Vincent was preceded in death by his parents; ex-wife, Vera; a son, David J. Vincent; two brothers and one sister.

He is survived by a son, Stephen (wife, Teena) Vincent of Springfield; two daughters, Emily and Andrea; six grandchildren; and his beloved pet, Alice.

Funeral Mass will be at 10 a.m. Thursday, February 12, 2015, at Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, 524 E. Lawrence, Springfield, with the Rev. Seth Brown, celebrant. Burial will follow at Calvary Catholic Cemetery in Jacksonville. The family will receive friends from 4 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, February 11, 2015, at Kirlin-Egan & Butler Funeral Home, 900 S. Sixth St., Springfield. Memorial contributions may be made to United Cerebral Palsy of Land of Lincoln, 101 N. Sixth, Springfield, IL 62703.

*** begin quote ***

My downloads folder contains some fascinating documents at the moment. The most fascinating is a job description that is tailor-made for me, quite literally a dream job. To do it would be challenging and worthwhile and really good for the kingdom of God. To do it would also require some seriously hard work up front; I’d need help… a lot of help. Then, however, that would yield an amazing opportunity to serve. It feels God-sized. It also feels like it would be a terrible thing to get wrong.

So, I’m dusting off the blog to ask for your help – wherever you are, wherever you see this – will you pray about this with me? If you have some encouragement, or some wisdom, or just a like/favorite/comment to share, I’d be grateful to know you’re here. I sincerely believe in the power of community seeking answers together.

JOY: Hoos, Katie [MC????] and Kyle, Trenholm [MC????] engaged

2015-Feb-12

Katie and Kyle
December 5, 2015 in Yonkers, NY, United States

Our StoryHow We Met (according to Katie)

It’s hard to pin down the exact moment Kyle and I met… we both have varying accounts and we crossed paths a few times during our college years. But once we did “meet” and started dating, he quickly became impossible to forget.

2007: Freshman year

Standing in line for dinner at one of the Manhattan College cafeteria’s, I saw a (handsome) guy with a Fighting Irish tattoo on his arm, and since my brother was a student at Notre Dame, I asked him if it was related to the University. Maybe he was hungry or secretly hates the Irish, but Kyle wanted nothing to do with me. He brushed off my question, saying it wasn’t Notre Dame related and walked away.

2008: Sophomore Year

Wing night at the local bar. A group of friends and I went for some beers and wings at Piper’s Kilt on 231st St when Kyle introduced himself as our server. He was chatty and friendly, but we barely spoke other than me giving him my order. A few weeks later, he added me on Facebook. Guess he thought I was cute.

2009: Junior Year

After having a few too many drinks with my gal pal (and bridesmaid, Meg) at her beach house, I messaged Kyle on Facebook. We started chatting regularly and by Columbus Day weekend, we decided to go out. After a few dates to Untermyer Park & Gardens in Yonkers and the now-closed Mina’s Pizzeria in Ardsley, Kyle asked me to be his girlfriend and I happily accepted.

We’ve been laughing together ever since.

The Proposal

It was my 25th birthday and a proposal was the furthest thing from my mind.

We had discussed getting engaged for some time, but since we were both new at our jobs and were trying to stabilize our finances, I had mentally put off an engagement until at least the following year.

Even though a coworker joked around all day saying Kyle was going to propose, I brushed it off.
Kyle picked me up on the corner by my office and we drove downtown for dinner at Giardino D’Oro, an Italian restaurant in the Financial District.

After dinner, Kyle said he had another surprise and I assumed we’d be getting dessert…I’m so glad it wasn’t.

When we got to the entrance of the Brooklyn Bridge, Kyle said he knew that’s where we could catch my favorite view of the Manhattan skyline, so he wanted to walk the bridge for my birthday.

Still clueless, we walked to the first lookout point and I was blown away by the night skyline. I turn around to ask Kyle to borrow his phone to take a picture when he started nervously proposing. He got down on one knee, pulled out the most beautiful ring and asked me to spend my life with him.
In between tears and laughter, I said “yes.”

Go Jaspers Go!
February 11, 2015 Categorized Under : AmeriCorps, Edinburgh, Ileana, Rebuilding A Home.

Hello again faithful readers! Isn’t it crazy how time flies? Since the last time I blogged, we’ve made some serious progress on Edinburgh. A lot of that progress is thanks to some awesome volunteers we had from Manhattan College! Fun fact, did you know that Manhattan College isn’t actually in Manhattan? #jeopardyquestions

Anyways, our volunteers laid hardy the entire week and had the most positive attitude for working in such cold weather. It was a balmy 20 degrees most of the week (looks like they brought the cold with them), but they still kept bright smiles on their faces. Here are some pics!

One of the days for lunch, we rewarded ourselves with some hearty Parkway Po’Boys. For those of you who don’t live in New Orleans, Parkway Po’Boys are pretty much the best thing ever. I always go for the Surf n Turf which is a sandwich that has roast beef and fried shrimp. Totally worth the extra 12 lbs I put on. Now I understand why bears eat extra honey when they hibernate. It’s so they can stay warm! Wait. Is that real or just a Winnie the Pooh thing?

Well faithful readers, that’s all I have for you this week. Tune in next week and I’ll share some updates on how tiling and the bamboo flooring is coming along. Also, I’ll look into that “bears eating honey thing”!

Much Love,

Ileana

JOY: Colantonio, Tracey [MC2010] and Llewellyn, John [MC2011] to wed

2015-Feb-13

http://www.theknot.com/us/tracey-colantonio-and-john-llewellyn-nov-2015

Our “short story”…

In the fall of 2008, John enrolled at Manhattan College on a whim the week before classes started, where Tracey was entering her Junior year. Because all classes were full, the school enrolled him in the only classes left that had space. With Tracey in the school of education and John in the school of business, the only chance to cross paths would be an English class. Luckily. the stars aligned and they both happened to be in the same section of “Short Stories.” With Tracey diligently taking notes up front, and John peacefully sleeping in the back, needless to say, her heavy assistance to him was required come exam times. Tracey being a soccer player, and John, a “lacrosse-bro,” perhaps they were meant to be, but after that semester, they were inseparable. Four apartments, a 90 lb. pit bull, and tons of graduate school later, John proposed to Tracey on November 1st, 2014 along the East River in New York City. Now they prepare to begin their lifelong journey together. Currently residing in Stamford, Connecticut with their lovable dog Bronx, Tracey works in Manhattan at Hospital for Special Surgery as a Physical Therapist, and John works in Connecticut, brokering the fuel that is used by cargo and cruise ships. They couldn’t be happier and more excited to spend their life together and are looking forward to celebrating their first night of marriage with family and friends!

*** begin quote ***

Jesse Dolores is equally motivated.  Dolores a pre-med major at Manhattan College plans to become an orthopedic surgeon.  “Brother Chiulli’s chemistry class gave me a strong foundation for my first semester in college.  I am using all my notes from his chemistry class and I feel well prepared for freshman year,” said Dolores. He credits the rigorous curriculum at Hayes for a successful first semester.  Despite the long hours in chemistry lab, Dolores makes time to pursue his second passion … salsa dancing. It gives him a break from the pressures of a hectic school schedule.

Massive Worldwide Layoff Underway At IBM
By Tekla Perry
Posted 3 Feb 2015 | 17:00 GMT

# – # – # – # – #

This is a human tragedy.

Careers being wiped out by cataclysmic economic forces.

If there is a villain in this story it’s the callous “leadership” that gets bonuses and raises while their “human resources” go into the dumpster.

And, of course, I see the Gooferment’s Unintended Consequences in this as well.

If the corporate tax rate was zero, then there’d be no rush to move work overseas.

(“Corporations are merely tax collectors; not taxpayers. They merely pass their costs along.” Lawrence Alan “Larry” Kudlow is an American economist, television personality, and newspaper columnist. August 26, 2014 0830 on WMAL Mornings on the Mall Brian Wilson and Larry O’Connor)

If there was a long term view in both the corporate board rooms and the “District of Corruption”, then there would be these horrific shifts.

For example, if Corporations could only pay salaries and bonuses, in excess of what the US President’s salary is, in the form of annual bonds spread out over 25 years, then we’d see a complete realignment of economic thinking. (If the corporation goes bust in 5 years, think Radio Shack, then I won’t be able to case out. Guess I better think about that!)

Argh!
