Motorcyclist’s Helmet Cam Captures the Moment He Took the Time to Make a Disabled Woman’s Day
Aug. 12, 2013 9:08am Liz Klimas

*** begin quote ***

The video footage shows the perspective of the motorcyclist as he cruises down the road. He soon slows, seeing a woman in a motorized wheelchair stuck. Unlike cars that either missed seeing her or ignored her plight, the motorcylist stops.

*** end quote ***

What a heroic act!

We can all take a lesson to heart.

I’ll have to be so observant!

The Unending Struggle to Find Affordable Child Care

McCarra-Fitzpatrick MaryAnn (MC1989)

<It’s not copyable; but it’s readable on her tumbler site.>

# – # – #

[JR: I find it interesting that WW2 “spawn” Gooferment sponsored child care. Now every has to work to pay the taxes of big Gooferment. So, my suggestion is to cut Gooferment to its Constitutional role and allow families to live on one salary. No child care needed. Yes, if you take the taxes you pay via “hidden taxes”, many a “second salary” goes to just pay taxes or taxes plus child care. It’s shameful that the Sheeple have let this happen. Unfortunately, imho, “unending struggles” are a symptom of Big Gooferment. I have a theory that it is at the root of ALL of our problems. If it could be radically condensed to say 5 or 10% of its current size, I would like to see what problems are left. Too much wealth in everyone’s pocket? What to do with out of work politicians and bureaucrats? Peace and tranquility across the globe? Dona Nobis Pacem! ]

Tuesday, November 19th, 7:30 p.m.
at The Irish Arts Center, 553 West 51st Street

Acclaimed writer and Bronx-native Peter Quinn will read from his new novel, Dry Bones.

Dry Bones is the final part of three installments that began with the Hour of the Cat and The Man Who Never Returned, historical mysteries that trace the life of a detective from the fall of the Third Reich up through the Cuban Revolution. This final novel of the trilogy tells the story of an ill-fated OSS mission into the heart of the Eastern front and its consequences more than a decade after the war’s end.

“Peter Quinn is a poet and an historian and one of our finest storytellers. He sits at the fireside of the American imagination. He can carve mystery out of mystery. The work is generous and agile and profound.” — Novelist Colum McCann

Quinn is an accomplished speechwriter, having worked under Governor Hugh Cary, Mario Cuomo, and for Time Inc. He holds an honorary PhD from Manhattan College and has published works in The New York Times, Commonweal, America, American Heritage, The Catholic Historical Review, The Philadelphia Enquirer, The L.A.

JEMAIL: Flynn, Bro. Gregory (MC1967), now healthy, restarts Addis Hope

Hello John,

It’s been quite a while since we met at Manhattan but I hope that everything continues to go well with you and Jasper Jottings.

After overcoming a few bumps in the road, I’ll be heading back to Ethiopia soon from NJ to continue my long time involvement in our Addis Hope program.

I’m very grateful to you for being a past donor/partner of that program. I’m including an attachment on how you can continue to assist really needy and deserving children. The attachment needs some fine tuning that I’ll work on when I return to Ethiopia.

God bless,
Greg

# – # – #

Flynn, Bro. Gregory (MC1967)

ADDIS HOPE CONTINUES!!!

I hope this finds you doing well since you last got an Addis Hope program e-mail from me ( July, 2012) stating that for a number of reasons, including my precarious health situation, that it would be best to close the program. I thanked my webmasters/cousins, Margaret and Bert McConnell and Mary Ellen Rabb for their many years of really devoted service to the program and understood their need to “retire” though the program wouldn’t be the same without their expertise.

I’m happy to report that my colleague and program founder, Ruth Girmay, managed to keep the program afloat during my lengthy convalescence. Since 2012, I have had several CAT scans that indicated that I have remained cancer free, thank the good Lord.

Ruth and I agreed to reopen the web site locally under a similar name that will provide further info.

http://www.addis-hopeethiopia.com

Brother William Martin, who is a member of the Christian Brothers community in Lincroft, NJ and a good friend as well as competent administrator, has agreed to funnel any checks received for the program to our account at Christian Brothers Investment Services from which I can have funds wired to the Addis Hope account in Addis Ababa for the operating expenses of the program.

A recent UNESCO report stated that Ethiopia ranked third in the world after Nigeria and Pakistan in the number of children without access to education, one million seven hundred thousand.

Even so, during its last eleven years of operation Addis Hope has graduated more than a thousand kindergarten age children who have gone on to continue their schooling in government institutions.

This, of course could only have happened because of your generous support.

I realize that you are called upon to support many worthy causes and only hope that you continue to think of Addis Hope as one that you can continue to support. As in the past, I ask $150 to sponsor a child knowing that it actually costs more and hope that those who are able will increase their donation.

God bless,

Br. Greg Flynn (Jack)

P.S. I am currently in my home community CBA, Lincroft, NJ but will be returning to Ethiopia shortly. Should you need more info, my cell is {Privacy Invoked} and e-mail, {Privacy Invoked}

Make an Engineering Career Work as a MilSpouse

Military.com| by Kerry Gorczynski

*** begin quote ***

I majored in mechanical engineering at Manhattan College because I wanted a career specializing in math and science. Then I married a soldier.

I was worried that his career and mine would not go together. After all, I didn’t know any engineers who were military spouses as well. How was this going to work?

Yet over the years, I have developed a great relationship with my employer. I have been able to work from home as an engineer from four states over the last five years. I also spend time in the office in my “home” state while my husband is gone for long periods of time.

Combining a career as an engineer and a life with a constantly moving military member is possible. I thought I would pass some ideas to you in case you are also looking for a flexible career.

PRAYERSREQUESTED: Colon, Philip J. (MC1962) has a few “causes”

Good Afternoon All,

Ann Burke asks for our prayers for her Sister Ronnie in Dallas, Texas. Ronnie was misdiagnosed last year with TB which turned out to be something called MAC, a cousin of Tuberculosis. The original round of Drugs did not work and Bacteria continued to damage her lungs rather badly. The good news is that one of the two leading Hospitals treating MAC is within two hours of Dallas and Ronnie is in their care, for the past two months, on a new drug regime. Ronnie will be getting results back this week. Please keep Ronnie and her family in your prayers that the News and Results are good. The family is not sure at this time what the next steps are if the drugs are not working. Please raise the volume. Ronnie is otherwise healthy and feels/looks great but at this point will, for the rest of her life, be using a Nebulizer. On Ann’s Father’s side, there is a history of Lung Disease.

As an aside, Ronnie is the Mother of that little charmer, Jackie, who has been in our prayers. Three years ago Jackie was diagnosed with a Tumor. The MDs never figured out what caused it or why it went away. Ann believes (as do I) it was all your prayers. Jackie is thriving and was recently moved up two Levels in the Dallas Choir. Prayer works.

Mike McEneney’s eye surgery went well. A prayer of thanks is in order as we pray for a full recovery.

Mark Sheeran’s close and dear friend’s operation went well last week. Results as to the Cancer spreading are not yet in. Please keep the volume up.

I ask for your continued prayers for our niece Doreen. The recent tests were not as good as we hoped. There is more activity in her liver. She is experiencing back pain. She will be going in for an MRI and Radiation and her Doctor is changing her Chemo today. The MRI of her brain is clear and has been for the last few MRI and that is a positive note. Doreen’s question to her Doctor was ” Should I be worried ?” He said No. There is more that can be done. Doreen has Faith in God and her Doctor. She has been incredibly strong throughout this so bumpy journey. She, as we all do, have hope and know the power of prayer. Please keep the volume up for Doreen, her Mom Eileen and their family.

Thank you. God Bless.

JNEWS: Zoppo, Br. Thomas [MC1985] new principal of Bishop Fenwick High School in Peabody

http://www.salemnews.com/local/x335460087/Zoppo-set-to-become-new-Fenwick-principal

August 30, 2013
Zoppo set to take reins as Fenwick principal

By Alan Burke
Staff writer

PEABODY — When Brother Thomas Zoppo left his post as president of Baltimore’s Calvert Hall College High School last June, he cited family considerations. He was coming home to the Boston area, he said, “because of a need to be close to my family.” Yet, he wasn’t planning to be the new principal of Bishop Fenwick High School in Peabody.

Rather, he spotted a notice that Sister Catherine Fleming had left to go to St. Mary’s in Beverly, and he decided to apply. Accepted, he isn’t due to start until next week but couldn’t stay away. Sitting in the principal’s office yesterday, he smiled, recounting the warm welcome he’s gotten.

“And very, very early on, I heard there’s an incredible spirit here,” he said.

A member of De La Salle Christian Brothers, Zoppo is just generally impressed with what he’s found at Bishop Fenwick.

“We have a large freshman class coming in,” he said. “That’s a source of a great deal of encouragement. There are an awful lot of schools struggling with enrollment. So, Bishop Fenwick must be doing something right. And that’s a credit to the faculty and staff.”

He’s taken the school’s success into account when planning his goal for the future: “To take something very strong and make it stronger.”

Expect sports to matter.

“Sports plays a key role in each school,” Zoppo said. “It helps develop the entire child. … It instills some very, very important life skills. And coaches sometimes have as much of an impact on the kids as teachers do.”

Raising money will be among his duties.

“We have some facility issues,” he said.

He’s impressed with the school plant and its well maintained grounds — he nodded to the football team on the modern turf field out back.

“But this building went up in 1959 and needs to be renovated a little bit,” he said.

Zoppo is up to the job. Growing up in the Norwood/Canton area, he began his higher education with a degree in business from Villanova, graduating in 1978.

“It’s served me very well,” he said of his exposure to practical economics. Yet, it was at Villanova that he also found himself drawn to something more spiritual, the De La Salle Christian Brothers, an international order dedicated to teaching.

While brothers take vows of chastity and poverty, they do not serve Mass.

“We are not ordained,” Zoppo said.

Like the church generally, the order is growing stronger in Third World countries.

“But we’re not doing as well as we would like in the United States and Europe,” Zoppo said.

The status of “brother” has not spared the group from the taint brought on by the priest abuse scandal.

“Each and every one of us has been touched by that, has had to cope with it,” Zoppo said. “All of us have an obligation to ensure this abuse doesn’t happen again.”

An advantage in not being a priest, Zoppo noted, is a lack of priestly duties. “Which gives me,” as he opened his arms to the school, “more time to devote to all this.”

Part of an Italian-American family, he’s one of four siblings. His father, grandfather and brother are all contractors.

“It’s a strong Catholic family. My grandparents, in particular, were very proud to have someone in the family in a religious life,” he said.

That life began at the Christian Brothers School in Manhattan following graduation from Villanova. At this point, Zoppo was delighted to be teaching, coaching track and using New York City and all its attractions as one of his teaching tools. He decided it was truly what he wanted to do.

Zoppo subsequently became a vice principal at the Christian Brothers Academy in Syracuse, N.Y. When superiors insisted he get his master’s degree at Manhattan College, he did it over five summers, commuting back and forth. Syracuse is far enough north that half the students were Red Sox fans, he said, smiling. He endeared himself to them, while antagonizing the other half (Yankee fans), when he allowed a day for wearing Sox gear after the 2004 World Series.

With Syracuse one of America’s snowiest locales, Zoppo leapt at the opportunity to move to Concord, Calif., and De La Salle High School. He told friends there that he’d come for the opportunity of seeing the snow on nearby mountains at a distance.

“I really don’t like snow,” he said, which raised eyebrows when he returned to Syracuse two years later to become the head of that school. “They said I must have done something terribly wrong,” he said, laughing. Later, he became president of Baltimore’s Calvert Hall, “The oldest school the Brothers have in the United States,” he said.

While speaking highly of his colleagues there and his experience in one of America’s premier Catholic cities, he was quick to insist it didn’t make him an Oriole fan.

JNEWS: Butler, John P. [MC1986] President and CEO of Akebia Therapeutics

http://www.4-traders.com/news/Akebia-Appoints-Renal-Industry-Veteran-John-P-Butler-as-President-and-CEO–17222560/

Akebia Appoints Renal Industry Veteran John P. Butler as President and CEO
08/28/2013 | 11:05am US/Eastern

Akebia Therapeutics, a biopharmaceutical company focused on developing and commercializing small molecules to treat anemia and other diseases, today announced that it has appointed John P. Butler as its President and Chief Executive Officer. Mr. Butler was most recently CEO of Inspiration Biopharmaceuticals and prior to that, held several positions at Genzyme Corporation, including President of the Cardiometabolic and Renal Division. Under his leadership, the renal division grew from $150 million to over $1 billion in annual revenue. As CEO, Mr. Butler succeeds Joseph Gardner, Ph.D., who will remain as an advisor for Akebia and continue in his role as CEO of Aerpio Therapeutics. The change will take effect September 16, 2013.

“We are thrilled to have a tremendous talent like John joining Akebia as its new CEO. This is an exciting time for Akebia, as we begin planning to bring AKB-6548 to market. John’s experience commercializing products for the renal market will be critical for the Company as it moves forward. I look forward to working with John through the transition and as an advisor to Akebia,” said Joseph Gardner, Ph.D., Akebia’s current CEO.

“On behalf of the Board of Directors, I would like to welcome John, whose vast experience in drug development and the marketing of renal disease treatments make him the ideal fit to help Akebia advance AKB-6548, an oral small molecule for the treatment of anemia associated with chronic kidney disease (CKD), through the current Phase 2b trial to Phase 3 and pre-commercial activities,” said Campbell Murray, of Novartis Venture Funds and co-chair of Akebia’s Board of Directors. “We would also like to thank Joseph Gardner for his tremendous contributions since he co-founded Akebia six years ago. He was instrumental in leading the spin out of Aerpio at the beginning of 2012, and given the rapid progress that has been made in the Aerpio pipeline, he will now be focusing full time on his role there as CEO.”

“This is an exciting time to be joining Akebia, given the potential of AKB-6548 to be a more effective, safer treatment option for patients with anemia,” said Mr. Butler. “The investors in our recent $41M Series C financing have acknowledged the substantial opportunity they believe this program represents. I share their confidence and enthusiasm and am pleased they have helped ensure we have the resources in place to make this drug candidate Phase 3 ready. I am particularly excited to be working with the Akebia team who has done an outstanding job bringing the product to this stage. I look forward to working with them to bring this important therapy to patients with kidney disease worldwide.”

In addition to the positions mentioned above, Mr. Butler has served in additional roles over his 14-year tenure at Genzyme, his last role was President of the Rare Genetic Disease division, the company’s largest business with annual revenue greater than $2 billion. Prior to Genzyme, Mr. Butler held commercial positions at Amgen Inc. and Hoffmann-La Roche. Mr. Butler currently serves as the Chairman of the Board of Trustees for the American Kidney Fund. He received his bachelor’s degree from Manhattan College and his MBA from the Zicklin School, Baruch College, City University of New York.

With Mr. Butler’s appointment, Akebia will establish a corporate office in the Boston area. Akebia’s research and development office and activities will remain in Cincinnati.

About AKB-6548

AKB-6548 is an orally available, hypoxia-inducible factor prolyl hydroxylase (HIF-PH) inhibitor that stabilizes HIF2? and is currently in development by Akebia for the treatment of anemias secondary to chronic kidney disease (CKD) and end stage renal disease (ESRD or dialysis). These diseases are currently treated with injectable erythropoiesis stimulating agents (ESAs), which generated approximately $5.4 billion in global revenues in 2011, despite having “black box” warnings for increased cardiovascular risk in patients with CKD and increased rate of tumor growth and chance of death in patients with cancer. By contrast, due to its different mechanism of action, AKB-6548 has demonstrated the potential to be a safer, more efficacious, less expensive, orally dosed alternative to the injectable ESAs that are currently used to treat a variety of anemias. Instead of binding directly to and saturating the EPO receptor for prolonged periods of time, AKB-6548 acts by stimulating the body’s natural response to anemia that is carried out by stabilization of HIF2?. The drug response is similar to the physiological adjustment made by the body to an increase in altitude. In this way, once-daily dosing of this oral HIF-PH inhibitor can restore the normal diurnal variation of EPO for a patient with anemia in a way that an injectable ESA cannot. This approach leads to a consistent, predictable and controllable rise in hemoglobin levels.

About Akebia Therapeutics

Akebia Therapeutics, Inc. is a biopharmaceutical company focused on developing and commercializing small molecules to treat anemia and other diseases. The Company’s lead program, AKB-6548, is in a Phase 2b clinical trial for anemia associated with chronic kidney disease. AKB-6548 is an orally available, hypoxia-inducible factor prolyl hydroxylase (HIF-PH) inhibitor which is designed to stabilize HIF2?, a critical regulator of red blood cell production and iron absorption. AKB-6548 potentially promises to be a safer, less expensive, orally dosed pharmaceutical to stimulate endogenous EPO production. http://www.akebia.com

Eric Brody of Massapequa Park has always been one to see the bigger picture in life. When he was a sophomore at St. Anthony’s High School, Brody was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease, a roadblock that immediately required him to change his diet and lifestyle.

“I was always interested in physical activity,” says the 25-year-old Brody, who played roller hockey in high school, “but being diagnosed with Crohn’s took my interest in health and exercise to another level.”

Brody went on to graduate from Manhattan College with a degree in Finance and Economics. It was there that he met 25-year-old Ben Hart, his roommate and business partner who also shared an affinity for health and fitness.

“At the time I met Ben, he was training to be a boxer in the Olympics. So I saw then, his drive, motivation and the bigger picture of how dedicated he was and some of those values were instilled in me as well,” says Brody.

It was after graduation, when Brody was working at Citi Group and Ben at Equinox, where the idea of Qinetic, their newly launched company, was formed.

“Ben came up with the idea and asked me to come on and help him with little things here and there. He saw that I had some skills that complemented what he was doing, so it was a great match,” says Brody who’s own interest in health and wellness was a plus.

The two went into business together, leading Brody to take a risk and quit his full-time job. Hart, a personal trainer, also cut down his clientele to focus on their new venture. Although both received support from family and friends, starting a new business in a weak economy was still a risky endeavor. Fortunately, Brody and Hart’s combined backgrounds made establishing a foundation a bit easier. One of Hart’s clients, Liam Lynch, took an interest in Qinetic and became the company’s investor and chair.

“Our tagline is, Qinetic: The Fitness and Wellness Network,” says Brody. “We’re aiming to become the platform online where you can showcase your wellness life, whether you like to work out, are a hardcore athlete, or just enjoy a healthy lifestyle,” he continues.

*** and ***

Since the online launch of Qinetic took place in June, Brody and Hart have been doing all they can to garner attention for the company. Social media platforms have played a huge role in spreading the word.

“I think we have a pretty good well rounded approach for now, but being a health and fitness company, we really need to be out there on the ground and interacting with those people to show them that we’re actually living the brand,” Brody says of Qinetic’s future marketing techniques.

Founders Brody and Hart see big things down the road.

“We want to be the one stop shop for everything wellness and be the one place you go for anything fitness related. We have visions of making this a household name,” says Brody.

Offering a piece of advice to those who may be in the same spot, Brody recommends a good dose of inner trust.

“Don’t be afraid to do something you’re passionate about. Things will be tough for a while, but if trust in yourself and what you want to do, things have a way of working out.”

Funny memoryWhen I was teaching and coaching after a while due to the age factor people who weren’t born when I competed didn’t recognize that I was an Olympic Champion. A kid came out for the track team when I was about 42 years old and he said he wanted to run the 100 and 220 yard dashes. Jokingly I said, ‘You’ll have to beat me first.’ He said, ‘Okay, Coach. Let’s do it.’ All of the other kids started laughing because they knew who I was. We went to the starting line and he lined up next to me to run 60 yards. I ran 6.5 seconds hand-timed. I won handily and all of the kids were laughing and shouting, ‘Coach is Olympic Champion!’ I felt bad and told him if it was 100 yards he would have beaten me
