Good Samaritans Return Wallet Stuffed With $5,000
Saturday, December 26, 2009

*** begin quote ***

A last-minute shopper who lost a wallet stuffed with $5,000 in cash at Bloomingdale’s got a Christmas present he’ll never forget when an honest couple returned the billfold with every last dollar.

*** end quote ***

[JR: I love the “honesty” stories. The fact that this happened in NY and at Christmas time makes it even better. I’d like to think I could resist temptation, but I’m weak. I know my fellow alums would surely do better with the big amounts. I hope all my challenges are small.]

Your author is an average eighteen year old girl. She grew up in Suburbia and plans to spend the rest of her life in the heart of New York City. You’ll learn more about her than you’ll ever want/need to know, but it will offer much humor along the ride. This is all just going to be a story someday. The best advice is to stop reading; not now, right now.

Article I wrote for Manhattan College Quadrangle (Hartford mention)

*** begin quote ***

Please find an article that I just wrote for the most recent edition of my school’s (for the next weeks that is) newspaper the Manhattan College Quadrangle. This article was in response to one written claiming the MTA is one most corrupt organizations out there whose service is despicable.

The reason I put it in here is because I throw in a reference at the end to public transportation in Hartford. I have been been proven wrong though by a recent blog post though that discusses how it is in fact possible to live car free in Hartford. And I have come to agree, BUT it should be so much more easier. There needs to be much better bus service and tons of new routes. This is something I must save for after I graduate in 2 weeks, when I will have plenty of time to discuss. Please read though! I have bolded the Hartford part.

Scatterbomb http://www.myspace.com/scatterbomb needs a coach for the Spring Semester.

I am unable to continue coaching Manhattan College’s improv troupe Scatterbomb and am helping them find a replacement coach for Spring 2007.

This is a bit of a situation, so here are the details…

* You’d really have to be available once a week, every week, from about 7:30-10:30. They probably won’t know which day they’ll have rehearsal until the semester starts. You can’t really miss rehearsals, seriously, but if you do you’d either have to find a sub (and pay him out of your own pocket – see below) or hope they can make up a different week.

* Manhattan College is on 242nd Street, the final stop on the 1 (it’s a pretty safe area). It takes me about 1.5 hours to get home in the LES. So the commute is a bit of a pain and can be difficult if you live in Queens.

* You’ll be working with a mix of veterans and people who’ve only been doing it for one semester, so it’s also a fun teaching challenge.

* Because of these factors, the pay is more than the standard coaching rate. You’ll probably be paid monthly, and will have to fill out tax forms, as you’ll receive a check from the school.

You’ve really gotta be reliable and committed to this gig through the entire semester. These are a great group of people, and I want them to have the best coach possible.

If you think you have the guts, please email me at professorkirkus -at- yahoo -dot- com, and I’ll toss your name into the ring for consideration.

New for 2010!

Read this slightly updated list and email me if you think you can do it.

* Meet with them once a week for the Spring semester (about 14 weeks, total), from 7:30 to 10:30. Probably gonna be on a Monday or Wednesday.

* Manhattan College is on 242nd Street, the final stop on the 1 (it’s a pretty safe area), so this position is ideal for someone who lives on the UWS or close to a 1, 2, or 3 train. It takes me about 1.5 hours to get home in Astoria, so the commute could be a pain in the ass depending on where you live.

* You’ll be working with a mix of veterans and people who’ve only been doing it for one semester, so it’s a fun teaching challenge.

* Because of these factors, the pay is more than the standard coaching rate. You’ll receive a check from the school for the entire semester.

* You really can’t miss rehearsals, seriously, but if you do you’d either have to find a sub (and I could probably do it, if necessary) and pay for them yourself.

You’ve really gotta be reliable and committed to this gig through the entire semester. They’re are a great group of people, and I want them to have the best coach possible.

Wow this was very informative and was exactly what I was looking for. I am currently finishing out my first year of college. I attend Manhattan College, which is a small Catholic Liberal Arts school with a pretty decent US news ranking. My major is Government and International Studies. What I would like to ask you is, how should I embark on my journey of becoming a lobbyist during the summer months between semesters. This summer I am doing an unpaid internship in New Jersey for my districts senator. Is this a good start? Where should I go from here for next summer?

My Life on Bikes
posted by Sybil on May 24

*** begin quote ***

I was fourteen, riding the IRT subway in New York City. It was mid-day. I was returning home from spending the night with a girlfriend and was carrying my little blue overnight case. I found myself sitting across from where a handsome young man stood. I felt myself blushing as he stared at me for a half hour or longer, trying to catch my eye.

As luck would have it, we got off on the same stop. I would have to take a bus home from the train station. The young man stopped me and asked me my name and whether I wanted a ride.

I can’t remember his name. He was about 6 feet tall and blonde. I remember his age; he was 21 years old, definitely an “older man.” I also clearly recall that he was going to Manhattan College. Most importantly – he had the first motorcycle …scooter actually…that I ever rode on: a small blue Honda.

He took my suitcase and held it as I climbed on behind him. With one arm around his waist and the other clutching my small overnight bag, we took off.

The five minute ride to my house was terrifying, exhilarating and addictive.

We only went out a couple of times. I lied about my age telling him I was 17. When he figured out (it only took one kiss) that I was terribly young and naïve, our budding romance ended quickly. He was a gentleman.

John O’Brien, 85
By Barton Horowitz
January 07, 2010, 8:51AM
Founding member of Marine Corps League
NYPD inspector helped foil ‘Mad Bomber’

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — John T. O’Brien of Prince’s Bay, a decorated World War II veteran, retired police inspector and lawyer, died yesterday in St. Albans Veterans Hospital in Queens. His age was 85.

Born is the Bronx, he was brought to Grant City at age 5. He attended St. Christopher’s School graduated from St. Peter’s Boys High School, New Brighton. He later continued his education, embracing a variety of interests and rising to the top of more than one profession.

“John was very, very professional; he loved academia, wrote several books that were published, and was very fun-loving,” said Lucille O’Brien, his wife of 60 years.

An avid athlete, Mr. O’Brien played on the New Dorp Queens football team before enlisting in the U.S. Marine Corps in 1943, at the height of World War II. As a 19-year-old private with the Second Marine Division, he was severely wounded in his left arm during the Battle of Tarawa on Betio Island in the Pacific on Thanksgiving Day. He received the Purple Heart.

After spending two years recovering in naval hospitals, Mr. O’Brien was discharged in 1945. The following year, he decided to join the city Police Department.

Life-threatening situations didn’t end for Mr. O’Brien following the war. His police career proved dangerous, as well.

When “The Mad Bomber,” George Metesky, stashed a bomb inside the New York Public Library on Fifth Avenue in 1956, Mr. O’Brien was lauded for removing the live explosive on Christmas Eve.

He received the Police Department’s second-highest honor, the Exceptional Merit Decoration, from former Police Commissioner Stephen Kennedy.

“I like to do things on holidays; this way, I can remember them,” he told the Advance.

After a leave of absence to finish college and law school, Mr. O’Brien returned to the NYPD in 1950. He received his bachelor’s degree in political science from Manhattan College in the Bronx in 1948.

He wed Lucille De Rose in 1949; it had been love at first sight when they were introduced a year earlier, she said.

“He was gorgeous in his Marine uniform.”

Mr. O’Brien earned his juris doctor from New York Law School, Manhattan; his master’s degree in public administration from Baruch College, Manhattan, and his doctorate in public administration from New York University.

In 1970, Mr. O’Brien became a deputy inspector with the NYPD, from which he took a leave of absence to serve as director of the New Brunswick (N.J.) Police Department.

He resigned from the NYPD in 1972 and, in 1975, became the director of the Northern Virginia Police Academy.

Mr. O’Brien also spent 10 years as a professor of law and criminal justice at the New York Institute of Technology, Old Westbury, L.I., and at the same time practiced law from his former residence on Grymes Hill.

Mr. O’Brien remained faithful to the Marine Corps until his death. He was one of the founders of the Marine Corps League on Staten Island, and in 2007 the organization named its pavilion in Sunnyside for him.

He was also the consummate family man, said his wife.

Mr. O’Brien was a mentor to his adult grandchildren, who would quote him and seek his advice, she said.

“He was a wonderful role model. They became great achievers because of his guidance,” Mrs. O’Brien said. “What a career he had, what a fulfilled life. He’s done everything so well.”

Mr. O’Brien was preceded in death by an infant daughter in 1953 and his son, Patrick J., in 1994.

In addition to his wife, Lucille, Mr. O’Brien is survived by two brothers, James and Joseph, and four grandchildren.

The funeral will be Saturday from the Harmon South Shore Funeral Home, with a mass at 9:30 a.m. in St. Thomas the Apostle R.C. Church, both Pleasant Plains.

Friday, 08 January 2010 14:21

*** begin quote ***

Gov.-elect Chris Christie Friday announced additional appointments to the staffs of the attorney general and the governor’s office, including the director of law and criminal justice and the authorities unit.

Robert Hanna will serve as director of the Division of Law in the Attorney General’s office under Paula Dow. Hanna is currently director of the Newark law-firm, Gibbons PC and previously served as an assistant U.S. Attorney for 16 years.

*** and ***

Hanna, 51, of Madison, joined the Gibbons firm in May 2006 after serving 16 years as an assistant U.S. attorney in Newark. In private practice, Hanna has represented clients in wide variety of complex white-collar criminal matters, civil matters and attorney ethics matters. He also has served as a court-appointed receiver.

Hanna joined the Civil Division of the U.S. attorney’s office in May 1990. There he handled a wide array of affirmative and defensive civil matters, including appeals, on behalf of the federal government. His affirmative civil matters included a civil RICO action to rid Atlantic City’s Local 54 of hotel workers union of Philadelphia La Cosa Nostra domination; anti-fraud injunction actions against direct mail and telemarketing fraud operations; a novel CERCLA environmental penalty action on behalf of U.S. Environmental Protection Agency; and False Claims Act affirmative actions.

Hanna’s significant defensive civil matters included defending the U.S. attorney, federal judges and other federal officials in civil rights actions; significant Freedom of Information Act litigation; opposing the town of Secaucus’s attempt to halt major federal rail transportation project; and emergent applications by losing bidders on government contracts.

In 1997 Hanna joined the Frauds Division at the U.S. attorney’s office, and later served in a variety of roles, including as chief of the Securities and Health Care Fraud Unit and Criminal Health Care Fraud Coordinator. Among his many white-collar criminal matters, Hanna was the lead prosecutor in the prosecutions of the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey (UMDNJ) and major pharmaceutical concern Bristol-Myers Squibb. As a federal prosecutor, Hanna also tried complex, lengthy securities and health care fraud criminal cases. Throughout his career as an assistant U.S. attorney, Hanna worked closely with representatives of a wide range of federal and state agencies.

Hanna graduated from Manhattan College in 1980 with a degree in business administration degree. And earned his law degree at Fordam University Law School.

JEmail: Breen, Jerry (MC1971) does caricature business cards

John: As you know, my political cartoons have gotten me a certain popularity (or notoriety) and have been published all over the world, in places as far-flung as Israel and Malaysia. Locally, here in Maryland, I’ve become one of the most popular caricature artists, at Oriole Park at Camden Yards as well as at private parties. I thought it might make sense to offer people business cards with their caricature on them. This is especially useful for people in entertainment as well as salespeople – it helps their customers put a face to the name, so it helps them remember you. My caricatures are always flattering and cute (except when I’m drawing politicians, of course). If any Jaspers are interested, they can get more info on my website at http://www.newbreen.com/caricatures.html . Thanks. Yours in Jasper, Jerry Breen ‘71

Has your life turned out to be all you expected? I’m interested in what you all think… Here’s the scenerio:

Picture yourself at your favorite age (for me, it was 17). Think about where you were then: your views, your attitude on life, your friends (Were you shallow? Were you quick to judge? Were you into a specific genre of music/movies/TV? Did you have a specific hobby (or boyfriend!?!) you “couldn’t live without”? Did you want to become a mother? Did you want to be a lawyer? President?

CONTEST DESCRIPTION: OK. Now imagine that you went to bed one night (at that age) and when you woke up, it was January of 2010. Tell me what you see, what you feel, what you think. Are you happy with where you are?

PRIZE: I am not giving away any broadway show tickets, I am not giving away any kitchen sets, I am not giving away any birthday parties. Actually, what I AM giving away is something much more valuable. Let’s see if we can truly get to know each other. More importantly, let’s get to know OURSELVES.

HOW TO ENTER: Simply think about the scenerio I shared, and reply with your thoughts. I’ll start below. Follow my lead.

CONTEST ENDS: It doesn’t ! We’re always growing and changing, and as mothers, we especially learn that we need to adapt to different phases and stages of our lives. Let’s all accept who we are and where we’re at. Then we can begin to adjust the parts that might need some TLC!

HAVE FUN!

OK, so I fell asleep one night in 1992, when I was 17 years old. A senior in high school, dating my childhood sweetheart since we were 15, planning on starting the pre-med program at Manhattan College the following September on my road to becoming a pediatrician. I wanted 2.4 children, with a house in Westchester with a white picket fence and a dog named Max. Stephen and I would live happily ever after.

When I woke up, it was 2010. My goodness! I was much heavier, had much longer hair, and where was Stephen? The man in the bed next to me was OLD, like 40! I was about to run, when I looked at the wedding photo above the bed and realized he was my husband! Confused, I continued to check out my surroundings. I walked around the apartment (seems I am still living in the same neighborhood I grew up in? What happened to the house in the suburbs with the fence and the dog and the 2.4 children?) and saw another bedroom. There was a little girl sleeping in the bed, who, ironically, looked a heck of a lot like I did when I was about 7. Was she mine? WOW! She was cute

I kept walking and came upon another bedroom with THREE (whoa!) cribs in it! I went and looked into each one, and the three little boys I saw were so adorable! Who’s kids were these and where was their mother? I watched each of them sleep for a little while, thinking how lucky the mother was, and trying to understand why I felt this bond with them, like they were mine. Were they? FOUR? FOUR KIDS?

When everyone started to wake up and I learned a bit more about myself, I realized that I was very happily married to Paul (after divorcing Stephen), and what was important to me in 1992 meant absolutely nothing to me now that I had this man and these four children in my life.

I am NOT a pediatrician (well, a mom is a pediatrician to some degree, right?), I am a family therapist on a LOOONG maternity leave, and I am currently working from home as a City Ambassador for MomsLikeMe.com (a concept that in 1992 would have made NO sense… Internet Mommy? What was that?)

I can say that God has given me much more than I ever imagined from 1992. I would still LOVE to have our own house, not necessarily in suburbia! I am happy with what I have been given, and I recognized how blessed I truly am.

State Supreme Court justice sworn in
By BEN JOHNSON

It was equal parts decorum and levity yesterday in the Music Hall at Snug Harbor Cultural Center and Botanical Garden as Staten Island’s first-ever administrative judge was sworn in for a second term on the state Supreme Court bench.

The ceremony for Justice Philip G. Minardo was witnessed by a large crowd of friends, family, lawyers and dignitaries at the special session of state Supreme Court.

Some seemed intent on a good roast.

State Supreme Court justice Anthony Giacobbe, who served as emcee, welcomed everyone to Minardo’s “coronation – I mean – induction,” but also said, he admired the judge’s posession of “that quality, to really administer justice.”

Minardo, who started his career in the district attorney’s office with Giacobbe and practiced law for more than 30 years, promised he would continue to give everyone “their day in court,” and said of Richmond County, “We have, I believe, the finest bench in the state of New York.”

The event took place just two days after Minardo had sworn in Orlando (Lindy) Marrazzo as a judge in Civil Court, and Marrazzo returned the favor, reveling in what he said would likely be his only chance to “order” his more senior colleague to the other side of the Bible for an oath. Islanders Mario Mattei and Karen Wolff, two jurists newly minted by Mayor Michael Bloomberg, joined the large group of judges in attendance.

The patrician-looking Minardo ran unopposed and was endorsed by all five of the Island’s major political parties this fall. He noted that his second 14-year term will see him attain “the constitutionally senile age of 70.”

The relaxed proceedings began with the approach to the Music Hall stake, which was interrupted with a hug from toddler-grandson Philip III. With his family – including 90-year-old mother Mary Minardo – looking on, Minardo thanked his parents for “doing the everyday chores in an extraordinary way.” Son, John Minardo, who made remarks as part of the ceremony, noted his father’s “gruff exterior” but also his diligence and dedication to fairness.

Jonathan Behrins, president of the Richmond County Bar Association, quoted famous court-centric movies like “My Cousin Vinny” and “A Few Good Men,” saying they typify Minardo’s contention that “Judges are just lawyers in robes.”

Manhattan College, Home of the “Generic Guy”

*** begin quote ***

One of the first things I noticed at my college within the first few weeks is how almost every guy at my college looks alike.

No, I do not mean they look like exact clones of each other. But a lot of them do have the typical traits in their appearances.

(Please, don’t argue with me on this one. It seems pretty undeniable to me.)

Jasper “Nicole Marie” [MC2013?]

[JR: She should have see it in the 60’s. ROFL. I guess we never look in the mirror to see if the critique we make of others would apply to ourselves. Like zebras in a herd, sameness can be camo for scared individuals. And, they are talking as if it was just a “meat show”. Isn’t that what men are accused of all the time. Should be fun to watch this blog develop.]

ENDNOTE: Terrorists Have Engineering Degrees

Why Do So Many Terrorists Have Engineering Degrees

from Slashdot by CmdrTaco

*** begin quote ***

Socguy noted that Slate is apparently a little desperate for some traffic as they are writing about “Why so many of the terrorists have engineering degrees, and they come to the conclusion that engineers and engineering students are much more likely to hold strong conservative and religious views than a general cross section of the public. Further, engineers tend to hold a particular mind-set that disdains ambiguity and compromise. Terrorist organizations have long recognized that engineering departments are fertile ground for recruitment and have concentrated their efforts there. A 2005 report from British intelligence noted that Islamic extremists were frequenting college campuses, looking for ‘inquisitive’ students who might be susceptible to their message. In particular, the report noted, they targeted engineers.”

*** end quote ***

[JR: That’s me — disdain ambiguity and strong views. Religious; not so much. Us injineers want stuff to work. So I don’t understand the recent Detroit “failure”. Unless the purpose was not to blow up a plane, but to get us to wad up our own shorts in a knot? Well adjust my tin foil hat, I find all “stories” hard to believe. And, as an injineer, let’s see “evidence”. I’m sure my fellow alums are far more preceptive than this old injineer. Till then, I don’t believe any of the gooferment pundits. Seems like we are “knotting up” ourselves.]
