POSITRACTION: Who Made Jet Fighters and Car Crashes Survivable?

2014-Oct-12

Meet the Rocketman Who Made Jet Fighters and Car Crashes Survivable
Robert Sorokanich

*** begin quote ***

Col. Stapp was a physician and air force flight surgeon interested in figuring out how to make jet fighter crashes and ejector seats more survivable. In 1947, Col. Stapp began a series of now-legendary rocket sled tests, personally subjecting himself to deceleration forces no human had ever before experienced, to help find the limit of what the human body could take.

*** and ***

Col. Stapp’s research career was far from over. After human testing on the rocket sled was halted, Col. Stapp began studying the other dangers that killed pilots. He realized that the Air Force lost nearly as many pilots to car crashes as they did to mishaps in the air; for the rest of his life, Col. Stapp pushed for greater crash safety in car design, eventually becoming permanent chairman of what would be later named the Stapp Car Crash Conference.

Despite his many wild rides on the madcap rocket sled, and the shocking forces it exerted on his body, Col. Stapp lived to be 89 years old. His legend lives on in every fighter pilot who survives an ejector seat trip, and every civilian who walks away from a forceful car crash. Many of us walk around today owing our lives to the cowboy doctor who strapped himself into a rocket sled that could very well have killed him.

*** end quote ***

Never knew that’s what was done to make us all safer by one heroic doc.

JEMAIL: Colon, Philip J. (MC1962) has computer trouble

2014-Oct-12

Good Afternoon All,

First of all my apologies for an incomplete prayer request that went out on Friday regarding Jim O’Neil. Ever since having been hacked a week or so ago (some of you may have received strange emails from me that I did not initiate and I apologize for that as well) I have had problems with my computer systems and in fact have taken to the library while my own computer is looked at again. But of course my main concern is for the email that went out yesterday. Our prayer requests are sacred to me and treated with great respect, again I apologize. Phil Colon

QUADRANGLE: Courting versus the HangOut / Hookup culture

2014-Oct-13

The Courting Conundrum
Posted on October 13, 2014

GUEST WRITER

*** begin quote ***

United States Census data reports the average age that male and female Americans decide to tie the knot is 28 years old and 27 years old, respectively. These numbers mean that most college freshmen can expect to be married less than ten years from the time they start school. For current Jaspers, the matrimonial clock may already be ticking.

Statistically speaking, nuptials may be knocking, but in a society that has accepted a so-called “hookup culture” as the norm, a wedding is the furthest thing from any college student’s mind. In an era where “hanging out” has been accepted as standard for getting to know someone you might be interested in, going on a real-life date seems old-fashioned.

*** and ***

Kerry Cronin, professor of philosophy at Boston College, offers a standing extra credit assignment to those students of hers who will brave the college-dating scene, according to an article in The Boston Globe published in May of 2014. The rules: the student must extend the invitation face to face, pay for the date, and no alcohol, kissing or sex can be involved.

Manhattan College sophomore education majors Klaudia Maslowska and Diana Boyadjian both say they would be up for the challenge.

*** end quote ***

Maybe some old wisdom / morality is re-emerging at Alma Mater?

I find it inconceivable that such behavior would be permitted on a “Catholic college” campus.

I find it inconceivable of my Mother, Mother-In-Law, or any of our families even tolerating such behavior. (My sainted wife had a curfew AFTER she was married and living at home while I was on TDY. Her Mom’s famous diktat: “My house; my rules”.)

Laugh!

I often related that, when I was assigned to Fort Meade after tech schools, one of the reasons my now sainted wife was happy to see me was that she moved out of her Mom’s house.

Any way a very telling story about how “we” have lost the “culture wars” to the liberal libertine “Secular Progressives”.

PRAYERSREQUESTED: Colon, Philip J. (MC1962) prays about Hepatosplenic T-Cell Lymphoma

2014-Oct-14

Good Afternoon All,

From Mike McEneney, our continued prayers are requested. We have had Marlene in our prayers and need to raise the volume.

Marlene had been diagnosed with Hepatosplenic T-Cell Lymphoma.  The lymphoma has made it necessary to remove her spleen in July and the lymphoma has attacked her liver.  She is at Sloan undergoing grueling chemotherapy while on a respirator (enlarged liver is pressing against a main artery).

Family and friends are asking everyone they know to please keep Marlene and her family in your prayers  as her situation is very grave.  Doctors are fighting to try and get the liver smaller to relieve the pressure on the artery and also to try and get the liver functioning again.

Marlene and her family are a very faithful family, they need us to help in prayer.  Thank you. God Bless.

We have an urgent prayer request from a good friend to several of us and a member of our Retreat Team, Dave Ellis. Dave’s message is below as it so well states our fervent prayer for one of God’s greatest and most precious gifts. We pray for Ziggy, his parents and Grandparents Kathy and Tom. We pray that the surgery goes as prayed for with no complications. As we place our trust and faith in God, please raise the volume for this little fellow who is so loved. Your voices will be heard. Thank you. God Bless.

Ignatius (Ziggy) Mignanelli, beloved infant grandson of Kathy and Tom, is in Westchester Medical Center. He will have brain surgery early tomorrow morning to replace a failed shunt.

Please join in fervent prayer tonight and tomorrow morning that God will guide the doctors and assist them during this critical surgical procedure.

St. Gerard, who, like the Savior, loved children so tenderly and by your prayers freed many from disease, receive our plea for little Ziggy. We thank God for the great gift of this blessed child and ask Him to restore Ziggy to health. This we ask through your love for all children.

Amen.

Hi and Welcome!

I’ve always been one of those creative types. Ever since I could pick up a pencil, I was drawing and dreaming. I’ve had so many random jobs and experiences and looking back now, it was all meant to be. I got my Masters of Science in Industrial and Organizational Psychology only to work in a Private Equity Firm. I left the finance world to join a fashion ecommerce start-up. I decided to leave the corporate world entirely in 2011 to do what everyone wishes to do…to travel, to cook, to eat, to learn, and to do all the things that a person wants to do when they’re given an opportunity.

I decided to document everything on a blog called Miss Buttercup. This blog is ultimately about “the journey” or whatever that means. I’m still figuring it out through trial and error, through tears and laughter, through heartbreak and triumphs but through it all, I’m a die hard optimist and positive thinker. I believe whole heartedly that everything happens for a reason. I wanted a little place to share my creative side and the things that I love and inspire me. I hope this blog shines a little bit of light into your own lives.

Much love,

Laura

Former ESDC head “Ambassador” Gargano, “classy political opportunist,” now a leader of EB-5 firm promoting Atlantic Yards investment

The “Ambassador” is back, and the circularity is stunning.

2014 10 15 Gargano Charles A

*** begin quote ***

Charles Gargano, the chairman of the Empire State Development Corporation when Atlantic Yards was proposed and first approved, now has a job promoting Atlantic Yards and other EB-5 projects to green card-seeking immigrant investors in China.

Gargano, a “classy political opportunist” who was embarrassingly evasive about the project in TV and radio interviews, is now part of a scheme that has several dubious beneficiaries.

He’s now Executive Director of the U.S. Immigration Fund, which despite its official-sounding name and logo (below), is a private company, based in Palm Beach, FL, which has gone through the requisite hoops to market such investments.

He’s helping companies like Greenland Forest City Partners–the new developer of Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park, 70% controlled by the Shanghai city government-owned Greenland Group–gain below-market loans thanks to a loosely regulated federal program.

Please keep the volume up for Sharon, as Bob says, that she has the strength to face the challenges of the next few days and what is to come.

Bob and Noreen have great faith in this prayer of St. Francis de Sales and share it with us and thank you for your continued prayers.

Be at Peace
Do not look forward in fear to the changes in life;
rather, look to them with full hope that as they arise,
God, whose very own you are,
will lead you safely through all things;
and when you cannot stand it,
God will carry you in His arms.
Do not fear what may happen tomorrow;
the same understanding Father who cares for
you today will take care of you then and every day.
He will either shield you from suffering
or will give you unfailing strength to bear it.
Be at peace,
and put aside all anxious thoughts and imaginations.

Thank you. God Bless.

Neidnig Recalled at Sag Harbor 5K

A 15-year-old was first, a 61-year-old was second
By Jack Graves | October 8, 2014 – 10:17am

*** begin quote ***

The Pierson High School boys cross-country team turned out in force. Above are, from left, Angelo Toscano (the eventual winner), Lucas Yennie, Aidan Crowley, and Rojuan Patterson. Jack Graves
At Saturday’s second Andy’s Run in Sag Harbor, Robert Arcs, who two years ago became the steward of hundreds of trophies, medals, and plaques won by the late Andy Neidnig over the course of a lifelong long-distance running career, said that he hoped the turnout could be increased in the coming years.

“There were 120 last year, and only 88 this year — we need to juice it up,” said Arcs, who, along with other family members, is on the mend from having his vehicle recently “rear-ended by a pickup truck on North Sea Road.”

Those who did show up were enthusiastic, however. Among them was Tony Venesina, who said he’s still working 10 to 12 hours a day at his Conca d’Oro restaurant, and who was a longtime friend and running mate of Neidnig’s. (“Andy retired at 62, I’m still working at 72.”) Because of foot trouble, he didn’t run.

Sarah Adams of Quogue, a daughter of the late Dr. George Sheehan, one of the seminal figures in the long-distance running boom of the 1970s and ’80s, was there too. Her father and Neidnig were track and cross-country teammates at Manhattan College, and later were inducted into the college’s Hall of Fame.

“He was quite a guy,” Arcs said of Neidnig. “I went to meet his wife — she’s 90 and living in Riverhead. She said all he ever wanted to do was run, that he had seriously thought of quitting his job as a steamfitter so that he could run more.”

“This is just a sample of what I have,” Arcs said, pointing to a table of memorabilia nearby. “He won the New York marathon three years running in his 70s, setting a record. The trophies and medals and plaques I have span a career that began in the 1930s — he ran in the Fillmore Games before they became the Millrose Games — and continued into the 2000s.”

Arcs said he’s still hoping that repositories — he has the Old Montauk Athletic Club, Manhattan College, and the New York Road Runners Club in mind — may be found to house the collection or parts of it.

School removes portrait of candidate for governor
By Erika Niedowski
Associated Press September 27, 2014

*** begin quote ***

PROVIDENCE, R.I. — The Roman Catholic preparatory school that Treasurer Gina Raimondo attended has removed a portrait of her following comments she made at Planned Parenthood that aren’t in line with the school’s teachings, a school spokesman said Friday.

La Salle Academy President Thomas Gerrow decided to have the picture taken down from a wall in the school’s main building that displays other notable alumni, according to spokesman Drew Lagace. It was taken down Thursday, the day the Democratic gubernatorial nominee spoke in support of abortion rights and “reproductive freedom.”

“Her comments kind of go against our teachings here at La Salle,” Lagace said. He declined to elaborate and said he did not know if the picture’s removal was permanent.

*** end quote ***

Sorry, but “Catholic In Name Only” must be called on their positions.

Argh!

POSITRACTION: Know not the day nor the hour

2014-Oct-05

http://www.foxnews.com/us/2014/09/27/oklahoma-bus-crash/

Homicide eyed in deadly Oklahoma bus crash, killing 4 college softball players
Published September 27, 2014
FoxNews.com

*** begin quote ***

“We have a lot of injuries, and a lot of death,” he told FoxNews.com. “It’s a tragic thing for everybody involved.”

Hampton said the semi crossed the median and veered into the southbound lanes, hitting the bus.

“When it impacted the bus, it just kept going and went off the side of road. … We knew we had a two-vehicle accident by what we saw at the scene. … But it took about an hour before we found the semi,” he said.

*** end quote ***

What’s positive about this?

It’s a reminder.

Matthew 25:13 “Therefore keep watch, because you know not the day nor the hour.”

As a little L libertarian, there’s nothing worse than aggression.

I hope the drivers test “clean” and this is just an “accident”.

Even though, there’s no such thing as an “accident” when you’re describing something like this.

So it’s a positive reminder to “carpe that old diem” before it slips away.

Patrick J. Hunt
March 08, 1941 – August 30, 2014

Patrick J. Hunt, 73, of Brookfield, CT, died on Saturday evening, August 30, at Danbury Hospital following a long illness.

A devoted husband, father and grandfather, he is remembered for his generous and genial nature and his hearty laugh. He was unwavering in his faith and an avid member of Our Lady of the Lakes Parish in New Milford, CT. He was a charter member of the Knights of Columbus Council #11386 of Manville, NJ, and a member of Council #40 in New Milford. His hobbies included at one time, art, woodworking, golf, bowling, crossword puzzles and stamp collecting. He enjoyed old movies and was a huge contender for the televised Jeopardy game show.

He was born in New York City on March 8, 1941, the second child of the late Patrick and Mary (Foley) Hunt, immigrants from Ireland, and brother of the late John Hunt. As a boy, he traveled twice to Ireland in the company of his mother. He graduated in 1959 from Mount Saint Michael Academy in the Bronx, NY. He received a bachelor’s degree in Math from Manhattan College in 1963. He and his childhood sweetheart, Concetta M. Prisco, were married at the Roman Catholic Church of St. Lucy in the Bronx on Jan. 26, 1963.

Patrick was a longtime resident of the Bronx and parishioner of the Church of St. Lucy, where he served as lector. He and his family subsequently lived in Danbury, CT, and Belle Mead, NJ. After retiring as a director in the home office of Metropolitan Life Insurance Company in 1998, he and his family moved to New Milford, CT, and joined the parish of Our Lady of the Lakes Church. Patrick and his wife moved to Brookfield’s Newbury Village in 2011.

In addition to his wife, he will be sadly missed by their three children and eight grandchildren: son, Thomas P. Hunt of Whiting, VT, his wife, Anna, and their children, Victoria, Alexander and Francis; daughter, Theresa H. Krokovich of Oviedo, FL, her husband, Ron, and their children, Noelle, Ronald, and Anthony Patrick; and son, Patrick J. Hunt, Jr., of Orlando, FL, his wife, Jennifer, and their children, John and Julia. He also cherished his many nieces and nephews.

MFOUND: Alma Mater is NOT recommended

2014-Oct-07

http://www.cardinalnewmansociety.org/TheNewmanGuide/RecommendedColleges.aspx

The Newman Guide to Choosing a Catholic College

The Newman Guide recommends Catholic colleges and universities because of their commitment to a faithful Catholic education. All the institutions recommended in the Guide are unique, each with its own special charism, approach to education, and campus culture.

For instance, some immerse students in every aspect of faithful Catholic life, while others, though faithful, serve a more diverse group of students. Some allow opposite-sex visitation in student bedrooms, while others do not. Some have a strong core curriculum, while some offer more electives and encourage specialization.

One type of institution may not be better than the other. But one type is likely better for your unique needs. Parents and students should look closely at each college to decide if what it offers is what you need and are looking for. We pray that you successfully find the college that is the best fit for you!

VINELAND – Kevin Laue, a former Manhattan College basketball player, visited the Boys & Girls Club of Vineland to spend a fun-filled and thought-provoking session with youth members.

Laue is the first one-armed player in the history of college basketball. He spoke with Boys & Girls Club members about the dangers of bullying and overcoming obstacles in order to make your dreams come true.

Laue was one of several guest speakers throughout the summer and early fall who engaged club youths in thoughtful discussions about their futures, how they can become good citizens and how they can develop a favorable character. The program was supported through a Cumberland County/Juvenile Justice Commission Community Partnership grant that helped youths develop life skills and positive behaviors.

Clare O’Connell: Everything in its Right Place

2014 10 08 OConnell Clare

*** begin quote ***

A year ago today, I was a different person in a difficult position. I was overwhelmed by the sensory overload of moving to a faraway place where I knew almost no one, getting used to “nine-to-five” life, living in community with people I barely knew, and being surrounded by the Catholic faith more than ever before.

Needless to say, it was an incredibly stressful adjustment, and if you had asked me in October 2013 whether I was going to do a second year of volunteering, I would have said, “Nope.” I would have told you that I would much prefer to be back on the east coast with my family, receiving an annual salary instead of a stipend, and not constantly adjusting to changes around me.

I was certain that being a Lasallian Volunteer would not be as rewarding as I originally thought it could be. However, I couldn’t have been more mistaken.

Choosing to remain an LV for a second year was one of the most difficult decisions I have ever made but also one of the best decisions of my life. I felt a faint pull, a need to be more fulfilled in my part of the mission. I knew that there was something more for me to do, although I wasn’t sure exactly what that was.

My doubts and questions were answered as soon as I started my service this year. Everything has fallen into place, and I feel as though I might actually be making a small difference. I am more confident in my abilities to educate my students and help them succeed. I am more comfortable with my faith and have found ways to integrate it into my daily life. I am lucky enough to have been supported in these two Lasallian pillars by the third: my community.

So when my 2nd hour student tells me how my tutoring has been helping her in algebra, I know I made the right decision. When I feel moved during evening prayer, I know. And when I realize that I have made some great friends within my community, I know. Everything I went through last year wasn’t easy, but it’s clear to me now how valuable each part of this experience has been.

Clare O’Connell is a 2nd year LV serving at DeLaSalle High School in Minneapolis, Minnesota. She is a 2013 graduate of Manhattan College.

2014-Oct-09

http://www.pressrepublican.com/obituaries/article_cde2bf9e-4fe8-11e4-8afb-070b43272954.html

Edward R. Brohel
January 14, 1932 – October 6, 2014
Posted: Thursday, October 9, 2014 3:16 pm

PLATTSBURGH – Edward R. Brohel, 82, of Plattsburgh, died peacefully at home on Monday, Oct. 6, 2014, from complications of Parkinson’s Disease. Born Jan. 14, 1932, in Brooklyn, he was the son of the late Margaret McGee and the late Edward Brohel.

Edward started grade school in Woodhaven and continued his secondary education at Bishop Loughlin High School in Brooklyn in 1946, where he met his lifelong friend Edmund Egan on day one. Edward went on to pursue history and art history, graduating from Manhattan College, and furthering his studies at Brooklyn College and NYU Graduate School.

From a tender age, Ed lived a life filled with art and music. He first taught art, at the age of 14, to a group of public school students gathered around his family’s dining room table, and to his mother’s chagrin, used the living room as the venue for his first ever curated show. When he collected his students’ small fees, he financed his very first opera subscription.

Edward’s professional work began in earnest at the Doris Meltzer Gallery in New York, followed by co-ownership of galleries in New York and Washington with potter Jill Hinkley. His teaching of art and architectural studies at NYU, and St. Peter’s College, New Jersey, were the springboard to his academic career.

His deep commitment to art led him to SUNY Plattsburgh, where in 1978 he became Director of the Plattsburgh State Art Museum, living his passion for the next 30 years. During that time, the College’s collection grew from 500 to 8000 pieces, with the Student Association becoming a committed partner in the acquisition of art on campus. Their participation and friendship were a never ending source of joy to Ed throughout his tenure. Teaching held a special place in his heart – his mind was attuned to the unusual fusion of the artistic, historical and political realms, and the sharing of his ideas inspired not only students, but all those who spent time in his company.

In addition to expanding the Meisel Collection, the Student Association Collection, the Nina Winkel Collection and the Slatkin Study Room and Collection, and inaugurating the Holocaust Memorial, new galleries were established: the Rockwell Kent Gallery, the Hans and Vera Hirsch Collection, the Louise Norton Room, and the Winkel Sculpture Court.

His vision of art as central to human understanding became a part of the whole Plattsburgh community when, with co-curator Don Osborne, Ed began the Sculpture Park. Installation of large sculptural works on the lawns of the College changed the landscape of the College, and the ways in which people of Plattsburgh came to visualize art.

Ed served as Chairman of the State University of New York Art Gallery Directors and, from 1984 until 1992, he produced the Educated Eye , a publication of the Albany Museum’s study of the holdings of the State University of New York art collections. From 1993 to 1997, Ed chaired the Plattsburgh State Faculty Senate, and was awarded the Chancellor’s Award for Excellence in Professional Service. He also received the College Council Distinguished Service Award and the Chancellor’s Award for Excellence in Scholarship and Creative Activities. Along with the Council on the Arts for Clinton County, Ed curated and presented the WCFE Arts Auction for many years.

Ed retired from the College in 2008, but remained active in the art community. He then had more time to spend with his beloved Bette – they loved to travel, visit New York museums, watch ballet, listen to Sunday afternoon concerts in Montreal, and welcome friends to their beautiful home. On Sept. 17, 2013, he and his wife were honored for their joint service to the College by the dedication of the Edward and Bette Brohel, Museum Without Walls, which places works of art in public spaces throughout the campus.

He was a good guy.

ENDNOTE: FAA forgot About Drones

2014-Oct-11

http://gizmodo.com/faas-fancy-new-5-billion-air-traffic-control-system-fo-1639463748

FAA’s New $5 Billion Air Traffic Control System Forgot About Drones

*** begin quote ***

Designers of the Federal Aviation Administration’s futuristic, new air traffic control system did a whoops. Despite explicit instructions from Congress to take drones into account, they failed to include them in the plans for the $5 billion NextGen system. And it’s definitely too late to start over.

This isn’t good. It’s become increasingly clear in recent years that drones aren’t just going to become a presence in America’s skies; they’re going to become a fixture. The FAA itself just gave Hollywood permission to use drones for filming TV shows and movies, and there’s a long line of other folks, like Amazon and Google, that can hardly wait for commercial drones to go mainstream. And that’s not even taking the hobbyists or the military into account.

*** end quote ***

And the taxpayers pay for the mistake?

What politicians and bureaucrats are going get fired? Or who’s not going to get a “bonus”!

Argh!

The Gooferment is immoral, ineffective, and inefficient!

This is just another example of it.
