POSITRACTION: Bold defiance in Nazi Paris
http://news.bbc.co.uk/today/hi/today/newsid_7634000/7634154.stm
Bold defiance in Nazi Paris By Barbara Mellor
Translator of Resistance: Memoirs of Occupied France
Notre Guerre, Souvenirs de Résistance, Agnès Humbert, 1946.
The listing on French eBay didn’t give much clue as to the treasure that lay in store.
Agnes Humbert’s secret journal was first published in 1946
*** begin quote ***
Neither title nor author meant anything to me. But a memoir of the French Resistance published so soon after the war and – most intriguingly – written by a woman, might be worth a couple of euros.
When it arrived, Notre Guerre – its evocative cream-coloured cover darkened with age, its blotting-paper pages roughly cut – exhaled the atmosphere of wartime Paris. There was no preamble, no introduction. As I started to read, I was plunged directly into the Parisians’ agonized anticipation of the arrival of the German army in their beloved city in June 1940.
*** end quote ***
[JR: We continue to learn what good people did to resist evil. Hopefully, our challenges, or at least mine, will be little ones. Franz Jägerstätter comes to mind. And, all the ones we don’t know. When we are presented with evil, either personally or by our government, do we, as Jaspers, have huevos to stand up and “just say no”? It so much easier to “just go along to get along”. Like the line from a “man for all seasons”?]
*** begin quote ***
The Duke of Norfolk: Oh confound all this. I’m not a scholar, I don’t know whether the marriage was lawful or not but dammit, Thomas, look at these names! Why can’t you do as I did and come with us, for fellowship!
Sir Thomas More: And when we die, and you are sent to heaven for doing your conscience, and I am sent to hell for not doing mine, will you come with me, for fellowship?

RE: Friend Request
Dear Fellow Jasper Alumni,
I am reaching out to you to add you to my collection of Jaspers on Facebook. Recently, a fellow Classmate of your year, Jack Cahill, joined at my urging. And, he was the first in your Class Year of 1964 that I had. I couldn’t suggest any peers to him.
Chagrined, I have set out to remedy that.
By way of explanation, I’m just a harmless old alum that runs an alumni ezine – a weekly email about Jasper findings – http://www.jasperjottings.com – It is a imho interesting weekly summary of alumni and (to a lesser extent) student news.
I do Jasper Jottings to connect Jaspers globally. I’ve been trying to drag the “real” MC Alumni organization into this decade. Any Jasper Jottings exists, it’s free, and is an excellent source to identify and connect with specific alumni. For example, I have about 1500 Jaspers reading it every week.
This is just my attempt to “help” you and Jack connect. :-) You might not even know you needed help. :-) It, Jasper Jottings, might help you possibly identify other alumni that you might want to connect with.
Jasper-ing-ly yours,
Now I have to adjust my tin foil hat, and go “help” others,

[JR: Let’s see how persuasive I can be. :-) That ‘tin foil’ hat gives great reception.]

Subject: Hi John! :)
I haven’t written for a while, but read the JJ every week it pops into my mailbox. You’re doing a great service for us and it’s *very* appreciated even by those who you rarely hear from.
A friend sent me a notice about a “Peace Studies Lecture Series” at Kennesaw State University and while researching it I ran across the following that I thought I should send you as a “Jasper Found” item. Note that Kam’s name links to a therapeutic medicine website he’s evidently founded.
Hope all’s well with thee and hope things are going well up at MC!

Kam Yuen:
Kam, who appeared on Show # 176, was born in Hong Kong, where he spent his formative years. When he moved to the United States with his parents he furthered his studies in New York. Over the years he visited to refine his style with help from his teacher in Hong Kong.
After receiving his degree in Mechanical Engineering in 1965 from Manhattan College, he moved to the San Francisco area and received an advanced graduate degree in Engineering Studies from the University of Santa Clara. It was while he was employed at Lockheed Aircraft near San Jose as a structural and mechanical engineer in research and development that he opened his first dojo.
In 1969, after a brief stay in Los Angeles, Kam returned to Hong Kong to further his study in the martial arts. After training for several months, and achieving the status of Grandmaster in Shaolin Kung-Fu, Tai Mantis Kung-Fu, Tai Chi Chuan and Qi Gong he returned to the United States.
Back in Los Angeles, he held numerous classes at local YMCAs, the Chinatown Recreation Hall, Cal State, UCLA, and USC. Kam is the founder of the “Shaolin West Healing Center” and co-founder of the “Tai Mantis Kung Fu Assoc”. He has been the featured speaker at the world medical Qi Gong conference in Beijing as well as at several Whole Life and New Life Expos here in the US.
Early in 1972, Kam was called by Warner Brothers Studio to act as technical advisor to David Carradine in the Kung-Fu series. Mr. Carradine has been quoted as saying that he based the Caine character in that show on Kam. Mr. Carradine dedicated his book The Spirit of Shaolin to Kam.
Kam holds licenses in the following healthcare fields: Doctor of Chiropractic, Herbalist, Nutritionist, Chinese Energetic Medicine, Martial arts and Sports Medicine, Homeopathic Medicine and Acupuncture.
Kam currently lives in California, but travels extensively teaching and giving lectures and demonstrations of the technique he spent a life time developing, The Yuen Method of Chinese Energetics.

Subject: new Obama shirt
http://cli.gs/g0Er9H
To one and all: The Presidential election is almost upon us, and it’s not too late to stock up on Obama or McCain shirts from the Jerry Breen boutique – that is, my online store at cafepress.com . Check out all of the colorful designs at http://www.cafepress.com/newbreen . Here’s my latest design – “Obama Rocks!” I was looking at the Obama campaign logo one day when I noticed that the flag stripes coming out of the blue “O” almost looked like a tongue coming out of a mouth – which reminded me of a popular logo for a certain “World’s Greatest Rock’n’Roll Band”. I think you’ll agree that nothing says “Obama Rocks!” better than this graphic. Of course, you can also check it out on my website at www.newbreen.com or www.jerrybreen.com , as usual. I’ll have more news in a week or two. Thanks, Jerry Breen

MNews: Anything to do with Green Construction, Alternative energy, or even just recycling on a small scale is fine.
http://community.livejournal.com/environment/840576.html
Speakers?
Hello, My name is Stephen and this is my first time posting in the community. I’m an Environmental Engineer at Manhattan College and an active member of NYWEA (New York Water Environment Association).
We’ve been given the opportunity to have several nights each semester for guest speakers to come to the school. In the past we’ve had people such as the deputy commissioner of the DEP, Alumni of the school who’ve gone o to work for consulting firms like Malcolm Pirnie and Hazen and Sawyer, and even lawyers who specialize in environmental issues.
My question to the community is this: Do you know of anyone else who would make a good speaker? We’re looking for people from the New York City area who aren’t too expensive. Anything to do with Green Construction, Alternative energy, or even just recycling on a small scale is fine.
If you have any recommendations, please let me know. Also, if you are from the Bronx or surrounding area most of these events are open to the public so you should check them out. Thanks!

Retirees keep anxious watch on investments

*** begin quote ***
{Extraneous Deleted}
Oliver Abel, 54, teaches finance at Manhattan College and owns Oliver’s Chocolates in Ridgewood. He watches Wall Street from the perspective of a former investment banker, and is appalled at the “greed and the lack of responsibility” shown by the leaders of Bear Stearns, Lehman Brothers and other crisis-ridden institutions.
“I’m concerned about the long-term effects,” Abel said. “I’m teaching college students who are demoralized by what’s going on. … They are trying to learn the correct way to run a business and all they are seeing is this tremendous greed and disregard for shareholder responsibility.”
He is disgusted that the banking industry has left the public to bail them out, he said. “The banks had one long, huge party, they got drunk, and we all have to clean it up,” Abel said.
“I feel very sorry for the retirees with fixed incomes,” he added. “They didn’t do anything wrong and now they are bearing the brunt from the party.”

ENDNOTE: Vatican starts to id CINO politicians?

Vatican official attacks U.S. Democrats as “party of death”

*** begin quote ***
Vatican officials seldom single out political leaders who differ with the Church on issues like abortion rights or embryonic stem cell research. But now that the Vatican’s highest court is led by an American, the former St. Louis Archbishop Raymond Burke, we can expect things to get more explicit in Vatican City – at least when when it comes to U.S. politics.
*** end quote ***
In the business world, protecting one’s brand is essential to preventing the consumer from wandering off out of cofusion. Guess Holy Mother Church has been too busy with pedophilia to notice that Catholic In Name Only politicians (CINOs) are leading the flocks astray. Nice to see that the “barn door” maybe getting locked long after the horse is so long gone. Maybe fifty years gone? Since the first CINO, JFK! They’ve lost generations here in the USA.
(We no longer deserve to call ourselves “The United States of America” any more. Since the “direct election of senators”, the States have been nothing more than extensions of the Federal Government. Sort of like a patient infected with a second form of cancer. Lysander Spooner was right about the Constitution with it’s “right to life”. And, while we are at it, let’s put the plastic bag of the Statue of Liberty or at least build a mile high fence around it. We should be embarrassed by it’s presence. A reminder of what a once great nation we were. I am ashamed of how far we have fallen from the Dead Old White Guy’s ideals.)
Respectfully submitted for your consideration, and action.

Thank you,

Comment on JNews: Arthur Doran Jr. to run for Yonkers mayor by Holly Tokarz
Arthur J. Doran is my grandfather. We all knew Doran was going to be a fantastic mayor. But with all family problems, it was just too much to handle. Arthur J. Doran is a great man. A the greatest grandfather a kid could ask for. I am 14 years old, and my grandfathers has taught me all of the great lessons in life. His love for New York is unbelievable. Doran is always in the mood to see something historical, whether it is 5 minutes away or 9 hours. Arthur J. Doran is a great man, who is a grandfather, to 10, and a father to 5. His Irish background effects him proudly. Yonkers would’ve been great if Arthur J. Doran was elected, and did not drop out. But, I believe things worked out for the best.
-Holly
