Do Hearts Store Memories? Heart Transplant Recipient Develops Cravings of Donor

*** begin quote ***

A heart transplant patient is craving the food his donor used to eat, prompting questions over whether the organ has a ‘memory’ of its own.

David Waters cannot stop eating an Australian-made snack food called Burger Rings, and he has now found out that the teenager whose heart he received was always eating the same snack.

*** begin quote ***

It seems like auditors are sitting on the edge of their seats, waiting to find a mistake on a patient’s chart and go after a doctor’s practice. Chiropractors have been fighting to keep auditors away so as to not have to deal with audits and possibly a great loss of revenues.

Vincent C. Sullivan

Vincent C. Sullivan, 84

PORTLAND — Vincent C. Sullivan, 84, beloved husband of Patricia Moore for 56 years, and loving father of Marypat McGrath, John Sullivan, and Molly Sullivan, died early Thursday morning, the 14th of January, 2010, in the loving and tender care of the doctors, nurses, and staff of the Gosnell Memorial Hospice House in Scarborough.

He will be sorely missed by his dear wife and children; his daughter-in-law Krista; his grandchildren, Emma, Tom and Ryan; his sister Therese Crouteau, his brother Kenneth, his brother and sister-in-law, Daniel and Carolyn; many nieces and nephews; and his best friends, Fiona, John, Billy, Frank and Pete.

Vincent was born and raised in Newport, R.I., the eldest son of Daniel and Margaret (Shea) Sullivan. He graduated from DeLaSalle Academy, Newport, R.I., and Manhattan College School of Engineering, Riverdale, N.Y., with a degree in Electrical Engineering. One of the ‘Greatest Generation’, Vincent proudly served his country during World War II as a United States Marine, both in the Pacific Theater, and after the war, in China.

Vincent’s professional career commenced in Boston in the late 1940s and continued for a period of over 40 years. In the early 1950s he joined the firm of Alonzo B. Reed Architects, Engineers, and Planners as a Senior Electrical Engineer. Thus began a remarkable career. Energetic, enthusiastic, and with a massive respect for his employees and clients, he ultimately assumed the position of Chairman and Treasurer.

Upon retirement, he and Patricia enjoyed the ‘Best of Times’…restoring the Church of Ireland School House in Clifden, Connemara, Co. Galway, Ireland. Today, the School House is designated as an artistic and historic site of Connemara. It was a great run! And yes, ’tis true, on a clear day, you can see Connemara from Casco Bay!

Twelve years ago, Vincent had a severe stroke, which left him with a right side paralysis. A challenge, but never a deterrent to a remarkable life. He fought bravely, with dignity, a grand legacy for his family, his friends, and his care givers. Even with the limitations due to his stroke, Vincent became a computer giant. In the tradition of the United States Marine Corp., ‘Never Give Up!’ He will always and forever be with us.

‘Dear Vincent…may the road rise to meet you, and until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of his hand.’

Visiting hours will be from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 21, at the Conroy-Tully Crawford Funeral Home, 172 State St., Portland, with prayers recited at 12:15 p.m. A 1 p.m. Mass of Christian Burial will follow at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, 307 Congress St., Portland. The committal service will follow in the Wilde Chapel, Evergreen Cemetery, Portland. Online condolences may be expressed at http://www.ctcrawford.com.

James Patterson Inc.
By JONATHAN MAHLER
Published: January 20, 2010

*** begin quote ***

Like most authors, James Patterson started out with one book, released in 1976, that he struggled to get published. It sold about 10,000 copies, a modest, if respectable, showing for a first novel. Last year, an estimated 14 million copies of his books in 38 different languages found their way onto beach blankets, airplanes and nightstands around the world. Patterson may lack the name recognition of a Stephen King, a John Grisham or a Dan Brown, but he outsells them all. Really, it’s not even close.

Patterson, James [MC1969]

[JR: Well written and interesting piece that shows an interesting side of him.]

# # # # #

Dear John,

Sunday’s NY Times magazine this week has a rather lengthy article about James Patterson, ’69. In it, reference is made to how Michael Ledwidge, ’92 got to become a co-author with James. It reports that Michael had wanted to be a NYC Police Officer but the City was not hiring so he became a doorman and began to write on his time off. When he had completed his first book he contacted his fellow alum, Patterson, who helped him get published. He went on to write a few more books after which Patterson asked him to become one of his co-authors. The rest is history.

Another story of Jaspers doing well!

Mike

McEneney, Mike (MC1953)

[JR: Yup, it was a great story.]

Spotlight on Senior Mobility
by Michael F. Trentacoste

*** begin quote ***

According to the 2000 census, Americans aged 65 and older make up 12.4 percent of the U.S. population. By the year 2030, one in five Americans will be over 65. To address the increasing mobility challenges confronted by seniors—both motorists and pedestrians—the transportation community is looking at safety improvements in the design of highways and vehicles.

Seniors practice many safe driving behaviors. They are more likely to wear seatbelts and obey the speed limit. They are less likely to engage in some of the risky behaviors more common among younger drivers, such as talking on a cell phone or drinking and driving. Once they become aware of changes in their physical abilities, older drivers often begin to self-regulate by limiting their driving at night, in unfamiliar areas, on roads with heavy traffic, or in inclement weather.

According to Dennis Utter, director of the Office of Traffic Records and Analysis, National Center for Statistics and Analysis, “The average annual driver involvement rate in police-reported motor vehicle crashes in the United States is 55 per 1,000 licensed drivers, while the corresponding rate for drivers aged 65 and older is only 28 per 1,000.”

*** and ***

Michael F. Trentacoste is FHWA’s associate administrator for Research, Development, and Technology and director of the Turner-Fairbank Highway Research Center. Previously, he was director of FHWA’s Office of Safety, Research, and Development and director of FHWA’s Office of Highway Safety. Prior to that position, he was with the Office of Motor Carriers and directed research, rulemaking, field operations, and policy and planning functions. He has a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering from Manhattan College and an M.S. in transportation from the Transportation Center at Northwestern University.

I noted you put something in your blog about their 60th wedding anniversary in 2007. Some students are looking to contact her to say thanks… Would you be able to assist with this, or give her my email to respond to us if you are not happy to share her details? I currently live in Australia.

ENDNOTE: PNG all male Ugandan diplomats?

Independent Appeal: Jennipher, the woman thrown to the dogs

When Nathan Awoloi bought his wife for two cows, he believed it gave him the right to treat her like an animal. Claire Soares reports from Pallisa, Uganda, on the charity that saved her

Thursday, 31 December 2009

*** begin quote ***

Hunched over a sewing machine, Jennipher Alupot is an unlikely poster girl for the women’s rights movement. In fact, the young Ugandan mother is totally unaware of how her story – almost too horrific to be believed – has caused waves across the country and down the corridors of power, ultimately giving thousands of abused women the chance of justice.

*** end quote ***

[JR: How can we treat any country as an equal that treats half their population that way? How about we declare all the Ugandan MALE diplomats as persona non grata? Certainly would create a career path for women! And, let’s toss the UN and stamp PNG on all the spies and tyrants. We need to be the shining city!]

[JR: P.S. DO NOT read the underlying link on a full stomach. It’ll make you sick.]
