Top Science Journal Publishes Study by 8 Year Old British Students

A group of British children aged between eight and 10 had their school project on bees published by the prestigious Royal Society in a world scientific first, the society said Wednesday.

[JR: In my magnus opus CHURCH, I pointed out that we waste the first 20 years and the last 20 years of our lives. School, especially Government School, is a waste of time — for the most part. Children are learners instinctively. Must be a survival trait. But, we allow our paradigms and memes to blind us to our own potential.]

JEMAIL: Antenucci, John (MC1959) sparks a club

John,

Just joined the newly formed Italian – American Club of Sarasota, FL.

John Antenucci ’59

[JR: Congrats. Now what do we do with all the Irish Americans in Sarasota? I know ship them back to Bronx or Bogota NJ. Seriously, well done. Tocqueville thought that through associating, the coming together of people for mutual purpose, both in public and private, Americans are able to overcome selfish desires, thus making both a self-conscious and active political society and a vibrant civil society functioning independently from the state. Glad to see you’re doing your part to make that happen.]

Antenucci, John (MC1959)

ADDRESS BY ATTORNEY GENERAL ROBERT F . KENNEDY AT MANHATTAN COLLEGE CONMENCEMENT EXERCISES NEW YORK, N. Y.

JUNE 12, 1962

Most Reverend clergy, Christian Brothers, very distinguished guests … and new fellow alumni:

I am honored to become at this hour, and in this manner, a member of the oldest Catholic alumni group in the United States. It is a high privilege for one somewhat removed from your campus and exacting curriculum to be included in the select company receiving degrees today.

{Extraneous Deleted}

To graduates bred and trained in this hallowed place I need not say these things. I need not speak of forgetfulness and forteiture. Manhattan has indelibly inscribed within your separate hearts the tender words of Terence:

“I will make you remember always, this place, these years and me.”

# – # – #

[JR: I saved the entire text over on the Back Lot at http://goo.gl/asDw8. The link above is a hard to read PDF.]

[JR: Personally, even back in those days, I was never a Kennedy fan boy. Unfortunately, liberals don’t understand the limits of Gooferment. That being said, by way of disclosure, you can’t read these words and not feel sorry for their loss — JFK, RFK, MLK, and all those so lost. Who knows what the world might have become. I have my own tin foil hat suspicions, but this isn’t the place. I urge you to read the written words and feel their emotional power. Interesting. What could have been.]

JEMAIL: Toner, Mike (MC1972) wonders why not give a vote

RE: The Adjunct Faculty saga

>JR: MC’s getting a good roasting in the blogosphere.

Dear F. John,

Yes, and alma mater could have avoided all of it and maybe even engendered some positive comments had she simply allowed the adjuncts to freely choose whether they wanted to be represented or not. President O’Donnell’s letter notes that he thinks most adjuncts believe themselves to be fairly treated by the College. So why not simply allow the election? Union representation and an institution’s Catholic identity are not antithetical.

Then, should the election be for representation, bargain in good faith – in keeping with Catholic teaching. And, if President O’Donnell’s feelings are borne out, perhaps the adjunct faculty would choose not to be represented. Then alma mater would have saved herself considerable expense and bad publicity.

I don’t understand why so many are opposed to letting the labor-management marketplace take its course.

On another note, I am sorry I didn’t respond earlier to your call for input on the future of JJ. I do, however, endorse the choices that you made and announced a few weeks ago.

As always, thanks very much for continuing to collect and publish.

[JR: Weeelllll, I’m not so sure I agree. “Secular Progressive” liberals use “Social Justice” and unionization as a wedge. IMHO there is a FIrst Amendment religious objection to the NLRB’s action. They have no standing to decide “religious enough”. If Stamford is a “religious” school, then so’s MC. It doesn’t matter what the Prez thinks, the NLRB thinks, or what you and I think. The Gooferment must “steer clear” of Religion. Litmus tests are for chemistry. If the University of Phoenix claims to worship the internet, then it to is entitled to the protection of the First. Why opposition? You’re conceding on big issue: jurisdiction, standing, and venue. And, you’re agreeing to play by the “Secular Progressive” rulebook. Do you think you’re going to get a fair shake in a Gooferment Court? I don’t. And, I have yet to hear a grievance that we should allow the Gooferment to play judge, jury, and executioner.]

[JR: No one contributed any votes; so you weren’t alone. Makes me wonder if I’m that proverbial tree in the forest. :-) No votes; no complaints.]

John J. Horan, Former Merck Chairman and CEO Dies of Natural Causes at 90 Years of Age

WHITEHOUSE STATION, N.J.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–John J. Horan, of Sea Girt, N.J. died on Saturday, January 22, of natural causes. He was 90 years old. Mr. Horan served as chairman of the Board of Directors and chief executive officer of Merck & Co., Inc., from 1976 to 1985. By the end of his tenure, Merck had grown into the largest pharmaceutical company in the world and would soon become the most admired company in America on Fortune magazine’s well- known list.

Horan was instrumental in supporting Merck research that led to the development of ivermectin, a medicine to help prevent and treat the devastating tropical disease known as river blindness, and a long running partnership with the Carter Center that serves as the pioneering model for governmental and business cooperation in humanitarian efforts in developing nations.

Upon his retirement as Merck’s CEO, Horan continued to serve as a member of the Board of Directors and as its vice chairman until 1993. He earlier served as the company’s president and chief operating officer.

Mr. Horan received an A.B. degree from Manhattan College in 1940 and a J.D. degree from Columbia University Law School in 1946. He was awarded an honorary Doctor of Science degree at the 127th Commencement of Manhattan College in 1978. Horan was an officer in the U.S. Navy from 1942 to 1946, serving with the U.S. Navy Amphibious Forces during World War II. He saw heavy action in the invasions of North Africa, Sicily, Italy and Normandy, France. His was among the lead ships as part of the allied invasion onto the Salerno, Italy beachhead. Later, as communications officer on the staff of Admiral John Wilkes, Horan helped deliver the orders that led to the launch of the Normandy invasion, the largest amphibious operation in history. After the war, he was associated with the law firm of Nims, Verdi and Martin in New York.

In 1952, Horan joined the Legal Department of Merck & Co., Inc. and rose steadily serving successively as general counsel, director of Public Relations, director of Research Administration, director of Corporate Planning and president of Merck Sharp and Dohme.

Following his retirement from management at Merck, Horan played an active role in the development of the biotechnology industry, serving as chairman of the Board of Myriad Genetics Inc., chairman of Atrix Laboratories and director of Celgene Corporation.

Horan’s corporate directorships included: General Motors Corporation, J.P. Morgan & Co. Inc., and Morgan Guaranty Trust Company of New York, NCR Corporation and the Burlington Industries, Inc. While at Merck, he also served as chairman of the Board for the Pharmaceutical Manufacturers Association and a member of the Business Roundtable.

His civic work included serving as a trustee for The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and as a board member of the United Negro College Fund. Horan did volunteer work on President Reagan’s Private Sector Survey on Cost Control, where he was chairman of the Task Force on the Army, and the New Jersey Supreme Court Committee on Efficiency in the Operation of the Courts, where he was chairman of the Committee on Surrogates. His awards for public service include: The George Champion Award from Dr. Leon Sullivan’s Opportunities Industrialization Center of America, the De La Salle Medal from Manhattan College, and the Distinguished Service Award from the United Negro College Fund.

Horan is survived by his beloved wife of 66 years, Julia Fitzgerald, and his four children: daughter Mary Alice Ryan and husband John Ryan of Spring Lake, N.J.; son Thomas and wife Katharine Jacobs of Hoboken, N.J.; son John Horan Jr. and wife Patricia, of Sea Girt, N.J.; son David and wife Michele, of Armonk, N.Y.; nine grandchildren and two great grandchildren; sister Mary Smith of Lakewood, N.J.; brother Eugene Horan of Monroe, N.J. and sister Florence and husband Tom Keating of Wall, N.J.

Downtown Partnership flexing its lobbying muscle
Nearly $100,000 raised for political action committee as Rick Bach and Kris Michell take the helm
By Roger Showley
Wednesday, January 26, 2011 at 2 p.m.

*** begin quote ***

What it does: Promotes downtown, lobbies for downtown redevelopment projects.

Background: Formed in 1993 in a merger of the San Diego Downtown Association-Central City Association, founded in 1952, and San Diegans Inc., founded in 1958.

Membership: 325; dues $500-$10,000

*** and ***

Its 325 mostly corporate members have watched the city’s central business district go from blighted to brilliant over the last 40 years as one megaproject after another has prompted property owners, developers and investors to turn vacant lots into gleaming skyscrapers. In their wake have come 30,000 residents partaking of the urban lifestyle.

*** and ***

Its newly installed chairman, Richard Bach, senior vice president of Turner Construction, and his predecessor, Scott Maloni, have convinced the board that now is the time to form a political action committee. They’ve raised nearly $100,000 as a war chest to back friendly politicians and oppose unwelcomed state and local propositions and laws.

And the organization intends to broaden his membership to the general public, reach out to the suburbs to sell the downtown story and fight for more megaprojects.

“I say what’s good for downtown is good for the entire region,” says Bach, 50, who was born in New York, moved to San Diego in 2003 and lives in Carlsbad. “A dollar spent on downtown has got a ripple effect with the local economy and beyond. Comic-Con comes to the convention and every hotel I the county is booked. That’s a regional impact.”

*** and ***

Richard Bach, chairman, Downtown San Diego Partnership

Personal: Born July 12, 1960, in New Rochelle, N.Y.; moved to San Diego 2003; unmarried; five children; Carlsbad resident.

Education: Manhattan College, majoring in civil engineering

Career: Turner Construction, senior vice president, 1982-present

MFOUND: Running in VCP

http://cityroom.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/01/27/cross-country/

Van Cortlandt Park is indeed an unforgettable experience for a young runner. I’ve had the good fortune of running this course many times as a member of the St. Anthony’s High School “Black Wave” (1978-1981) and later while attending Manhattan College (just across Broadway from VCP…!). Some memories: the always epic sprint to the cowpath entrance… the large tree near the entrance to the cowpath that always burned a fiery red during the waning days of fall… climbing the rocks just beneath the top of Cemetary Hill… the sight of a badly bloodied runner from Brooklyn Tech High School who had apparently been run off the path and into a tree on the back hills, but nevertheless continued on and finished his race… and of course, the last half mile to the finish line that always seemed like it would never come…

Comment on MFOUND: Sir Reverend Paul Lachlan Peck has MC connection

by Rev. Paul L. Peck

Hello Jaspers.

How nice it is to be “found” and to read stuff about moi. I have fond memories of my days at Manhattan, and of the informal music/poetry/song nights that we would have at Birch Cottage. Students brought their dates, their poetry, and/or their music…and I baked a huge pan full of baking powder biscuits–served with butter and jam. Maybe some of you remember. This would have been in 1971-1974. Happy dreams!

Comment on ADMINISTRIVIA: MEETINGWAVE floats “link bait” ad

by jb

Hi Jasper – Thanks for the feedback.

“[JR: This was pushed out on Twitter, but it’s not by a real person. It’s an ad.]”

Actually, it was a simple Tweet on twitter, but the purpose was to promote the closed version of MeetingWave for Manhattan alumni.

Research conducted by UCONN’s Innovation Accelerator Program highlighted the following:
•         77% of alumni not satisfied with current resources.
•         62% would like to meet fellow alumni for potential business contact.
•         Large demand for business networking among alumni.

Do you think Manhattan alums would be interesting in meeting other alums for job leads, new business or just social networking over coffee, lunch or other meeting activity?

ENDNOTE: The ability to shift jobs and remain productive in ant society

http://www.impactlab.net/2011/01/10/biologists-discover-that-some-ants-eventually-retir/

January 10th, 2011 at 9:16 am
Biologists Discover That Some Ants Eventually Retire

*** begin quote ***

Researchers believe that this ability to shift jobs and remain a productive member of ant society has led to a longer lifespan among them compared to those insects that live alone. For Schodfield, however, the results of this study extend beyond to world of entomology. If ants can recognize the clear importance of their elders in society, he suggests, perhaps we humans should appreciate our oldest and wisest citizens a bit more as well — for the golden years may be more aptly named than we often stop to realize.

*** end quote ***

When will properly value people?

I wrote something about it in my novel: “Children will no longer waste the first 25 years of their lives. Adults will no longer be tossed on the rubbish pile for the last 50 years of their life.” — CHURCH 10●19●62 Volume 2 Page 279

If ants can evolve to recognize the value of young and old, us, supposedly “smart” people, should be able to do the same.

I think the trick is freedom and liberty! Allow people the freedom to think for themselves as opposed to having Gooferment, politicians, and bureaucrats telling us what to do!
