POSITRACTION: Teen “called home” too soon

http://apnews.myway.com/article/20090728/D99N7JEO1.html

Police say LA teen tried to get money before death
Jul 28, 12:08 AM (ET)
By ROBERT JABLON

*** begin quote ***

LOS ANGELES (AP) – The last hours of Lily Burk’s life were spent trying to get money for a kidnapper who finally beat the 17-year-old to death and left her body in her car in a downtown parking lot, police said Monday.

Burk was found dead Saturday in her black Volvo. A 50-year-old parolee, Charlie Samuel, was booked Sunday for investigation of murder after fingerprints in the car linked him to the killing, Deputy Chief Sergio Diaz said at a news conference.

*** end quote ***

We know not the day, nor the hour.

All we can hope is that this teen has returned to the Creator’s House of Many Mansions.

When one looks at a horror, you have to look for the good in the Plan.

Hard to see.

But we should learn that actions have consequences. When dangerous men are allowed to roam, bad things will happen.

While we have no right to kill our fellow man, we have a right to hold people accountable for their actions.

Why don’t we do that?

Let’s start today.

Friends and Family of the James Keating O’Neill Foundation,

We have decided to not hold a golf outing this year. This was a difficult decision but felt that we could not sustain the event this year for a number of reasons including the current economic conditions and not having the minimum number of golfers the past few years. We hope to be back next year for the 10th Anniversary.

Over the past 9 years we have raised over $200,000 for the scholarship through the generosity of our friends and family. The first recipient of the James K. O’Neill ‘90 Memorial Scholarship, Kacey Henkin, graduated from Manhattan College this past May. We expect a new recipient to be awarded the scholarship later this Fall.

If you would like to make a donation to the scholarship fund you can use the link below. All donations are tax deductible.

Thank you for your continued support and we hope to see you again in 2010.

JEMail: Mangone, Mark (1977) opines about “when life begins”

Hello John,

You raised 2 issues in your endnote, Pretending Not to Know When Life Begins.

Addressing the 1st issue you raised as to when life begins, life began in the distant past. As an engineer (scientist), I believe the science shows that life is a continuous chain. This is the old chicken and egg dilemma. People obscure the continuity of life to justify murder for convenience.

The 2nd issue you raised is when the right to life begins, a more difficult question, both theological and philosophical, and probably beyond an engineer’s (like me) capability. The answer may well be different depending on whether one considers the answer in light of the 1st issue or totally separately.

This is just my 2 cents.

Regards,

Mark Mangone

p.s. Keep up the good work.

# – # – #

[JR: Yeah, us injineers tend to be very simplistic. Seems to me that life begins at conception. I think the Church Fathers had that right despite the level of knowledge they had at the time. As I said in my book ‘CHURCH 10●19●62’, “… and held the babies. They were immersed in joy holding the expression of God’s love for his children. How could people kill these bundles of joy due to mere inconvenience?” I really believe that this has been a self-inflicted genocide. I came to this realization playing Wall Crowther’s game, kill the bird and you can never get into the game at all. “We” may have killed the person who would have cured cancer, bought about world peace, or given us an understanding of universe. Sigh, we’re so dumb.]

The team will work closely with The March Group’s existing dealmakers, managing transactions to further develop the M&A firm’s East Coast dealmaking capabilities.

CARTOON: Jasperman returns! Breen, Jerry (MC1971)

200908040812.jpg

To one and all: Everything old is new again! I’ve added a new page to my website ( at www.newbreen.com/jasperman.html ), which will eventually publish online my complete comic strip “Jasperman” as it appeared in the pages of the “Jasper Journal” at Manhattan College from 1966 to 1970! The first 3 episodes from October and November of 1966 are already posted. They are accompanied by explanations of obscure and cryptic references, as well as news notes about contemporaneous events both on campus and in the outside world. Just as is done when old movies are re-issued, each episode has been painstakingly digitally restored, either from the original artwork or the best surviving print. There are over 40 episodes altogether. Also included will be a couple of later episodes done for Manhattan College alumni publications, as well as a previously unpublished episode featuring New York Mayor John Lindsay from the spring of 1967. New episodes will be added every week or so, until “The Annotated Adventures of Jasperman” is complete. At that point, I plan to publish the collection in book form. I’ve been planning to do this for many years (over 20 years), but now online publishing and on-demand publishing technology has at last made it feasible. Yours in Jasper, Jerry Breen

Coffeebreak: Rob Reitsema
Author: admin

Robert Reitsema

It’s never been put any better than this: “I love my clients.” That may be why Robert Reitsema, senior account executive at Edith Roman, has never lost one.

But his success may also be due to the fact that he can handle just about anything. Need a mailing list? See Robert. Need a data overlay or a merge purge? Give him a call. Want to do an email append? He can help. And he’s especially good at finding cost savings—a skill much in demand these days.

{Extraneous Deleted}

Robert got into direct marketing—indirectly. His dad was a civil engineer, and Robert spent his summers going out with surveying crews. He still has topographical maps he did as a teenager. He entered Manhattan College, hoping to become an engineer, but a marketing course inspired him to “be more creative.” He ended up taking degrees in marketing and business management.

He took a year off after graduating, tending bar and working in a pizzeria. Then he joined Edith Roman and began the familiar career path from “production person to junior salesperson to salesperson.” He adds: “We all love it here.”

Robert and his wife Evelyn live in Tappan, NY. They have been joined by their daughter Julie, who was born on May 22. Any pets? “My pets are a bunch of animals that live in my backyard—deer, squirrels, ground hogs, a fox, rabbits, raccoons and tons of birds,” Robert laughs.

Robert loves to spend time with his family. But he’s also writing and illustrating a children’s book, doing a cartoon book and writing a comedy.

He’s a busy guy. Does he want us to squeeze anything else in?

“Be deep ba deep ba deep, that’s all folks.”

MNews: New president settling in

http://riverdalepress.com/full.php?sid=9485&current_edition=2009-08-06

New president settling in at Manhattan College
By Tyler Gund

*** begin quote ***

Manhattan College is now led by its first president who has not been ordained by the Catholic Church, Brennan O’Donnell.

Mr. O’Donnell replaces Brother Thomas Scanlan, who served as president of the college for 22 years. Brother Scanlan became a fixture of the Riverdale and Kingsbridge communities and worked with many community leaders in efforts to both raise and spend money at the school. During his tenure the school built new dormitories and a large, controversial parking structure, including a recently completed pedestrian bridge over Manhattan College Parkway.

*** and ***

“Lassalian wisdom holds that education is a means through which we preserve ourselves,” Mr. O’Donnell said.

Hopatcong — Genevieve O’Reilly, daughter of Tom and Robin O’Reilly, was selected to represent New Jersey in the Rose of Tralee Festival in Ireland. O’Reilly is a 2004 graduate of Pope John XXIII High School who went on to Manhattan College to earn a bachelor’s degree in international studies. She is 22 years old.

As the New Jersey Rose, she will travel to Ireland and participate in the Rose of Tralee International Festival for ten days. She will compete against 49 other “Roses” for the title of Rose of Tralee, a competition which is televised in Ireland over two nights.

O’Reilly takes ballet, likes to bike and is socially active. She’d like to return to school to pursue a graduate or law degree, but whatever she does she’d like it to include travel. She and her family have lived in Hopatcong for 21 years. Her father came to the United States in 1971 from Ireland to play Irish football and decided to stay. Her mom is from Minnesota and is a wee bit Irish herself. Genevieve has a brother named Paraic, who graduated from Pope John in June.

FRANCIS OUIMET FUND GOLF MARATHON
By Jay Gearan CORRESPONDENT

*** begin quote ***

STOW — In golf, there’s no fast break, no hurry-up or 2-minute drill. Save that stuff for basketball and football.

Yesterday, however, for players representing 38 golf clubs throughout the state, golf’s leisurely pace shifted into fast-forward at Stow Acres Country Club at the 17th Francis Ouimet Fund Golf Marathon.

Jeff Gloshinski, from Tatnuck Country Club, hit his first tee shot yesterday at 7 a.m. By 1 p.m., he was on his 93rd hole of the day, on his way to his goal of playing 125 holes.

*** and ***

From Worcester Country Club, former St. John’s High golfer Pat Bibeau, 19, took a water break before he hit his tee shot on the 10th hole.

Said Bibeau, a sophomore golfer at Manhattan College, “I’m up to hole 135 on the day. I’m exhausted, and right now it’s all arms, but I always look forward to this. So many kids, including myself, benefit from the Ouimet Scholarship. It’s a lot of fun.”

ENDNOTE: Read the bills? Are you nuts!

http://libertyslifeline.com/2009/07/28/who-wouldnt-get-fired-for-this/

*** begin quote ***

Congressman John Conyers made this remarkable statement regarding reading a bill before voting on it?

“I love these members, they get up and say, ‘Read the bill,’” said Conyers.

“What good is reading the bill if it’s a thousand pages and you don’t have two days and two lawyers to find out what it means after you read the bill?”

Here’s the video: Why would I read health care bill John Conyers. These people are paid $169,300 a year and they are voting on legislation that will alter 1/6 of the American economy and they don’t know what they are voting on? Who demanded that this be done in two days? Nancy Pelosi and Barack Obama. If it takes them six months to read the bill, then TAKE THE SIX MONTHS!!! We wonder why there is so much government waste and fraud? It’s really quite simple. All the crooks and lobbyists are reading the bill very carefully, every page, probably 2-3 times. Why? Because as soon as it is passed they will know exactly where all the loopholes are, where the best opportunities for fraud are, so that they can rip off the taxpayers for billions, while Congress says, oh well, we better make the program bigger and put in more regulations and enforcement.
