POSITRACTION: ‘Homeless Jesus’

2014-Apr-27

http://www.deathandtaxesmag.com/218685/homeless-jesus-statue-confuses-the-hell-out-of-affluent-town/

‘Homeless Jesus’ statue confuses the hell out of affluent town

*** begin quote ***

Residents of Davidson, North Carolina don’t seem to know quite what to make of a “Homeless Jesus” statue on a park bench installed outside St. Alban’s Episcopal Church.

The statue is a convincing representation of homeless person shrouded in a blanket. The figure’s head and hands are covered—the only thing to indicate that it’s Jesus are the crucifixion marks on his feet, which you probably wouldn’t notice until you got up close. And you probably wouldn’t bother getting close since most of us don’t exactly run at the chance to share the few inches of empty space on a bench otherwise occupied by what appears to be a sleeping homeless person.

Hopefully, we will all look at a homeless person differently now.

I know I will.

NEW YORK – Lou Villani, an engineering manager who aided in Con Edison’s vital Superstorm Sandy restoration plans, received the company’s highest honor, the “Living Our Values” (LOV) award, at a gala on April 24.

This recognition is given annually to Con Edison employees, who exemplify the company’s values of service, teamwork, excellence, and concern for the quality of life in their community. Five other employees also were honored.

“Lou is a career employee with more than 32 years of exemplary service at Con Edison. His dedication to his craft and his remarkable work ethic are examples for all employees to follow,” said Sanjay Bose, Con Edison vice president, Central Operations.

Villani aided in developing vital storm hardening plans after the ravages of Superstorm Sandy damaged critical company equipment in 2012. As a department manager, he led his area’s engineering and construction efforts, enabling his group and as well as other parties to design and re-construct electric, gas and steam equipment within an unprecedented 6-month period. Typical work within the same scope would normally require at least three times the amount of time to complete.

Throughout his career Villani has mastered a range high-level assignments, including managing several new substation construction projects, and work with the Transmission Operations, Facilities and Steam Operations departments at Con Edison.

“I’ve always had an interest in engineering, so my career at Con Edison is a perfect match for me,” Villani said. “To be recognized for the work that I love to do is an exceptional honor. I’m very proud to receive this award,” he said.

A professional engineer licensed in the states of New York and New Jersey, Villani is a graduate of Manhattan College, where he received a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in Civil Engineering. He is a member of the American Society of Civil Engineers, the New York Interagency Engineering Council, and he sits on the Lehigh University Industrial Advisory Board. The board advises the university on its Energy Systems Engineering master’s degree program.

At the LOV award ceremony, Villani was commended for his focus on providing customers with quality, cost effective service in a safe and timely manner. He was also lauded for volunteering to lead a company research and development study on electrical fault currents and the effects on structural supports.

Lou is a devoted husband and father. He and his wife Rita have three adult children: Thomas, Stefanie and Daniel. He and his family are affiliated with St. Eugene RC Church in Yonkers.

Walter Richard Byer
Obituary

ATLANTA, GA.- Walter Richard Byer, 86, passed away Friday, Jan. 24, 2014, at home with his loving wife Lynne Cooke-Byer at his side in Atlanta, Ga.

He was born Nov. 23,1927, New York, N.Y., the son of the late Edmond J. Byer and Amelia Mooney Byer. He attended Fordham Prep and Manhattan College.

A proud member of the Rosendale and Kingston community for many years he served as the first Police Chief in Rosendale and later worked as a Deputy Sheriff for the Ulster County Sheriff’s Department before going into his own business.

He was a loving brother, father and grandfather and is survived by his wife, Lynne Cooke-Byer; sister, Renée O. Smith; his son, Air Force Veteran and Pilot, John Byer, wife Lisa Byer, and his three children Michelle, Jennifer and Madeline; his daughter, Pulitzer Prize winning photojournalist Renée C. Byer, husband Paul Kitagaki, Jr., and son, Soccer Entrepreneur, Thomas Byer, wife Midori Byer, and their two children, Kaito and Sho.

Walt proudly attended his son’s soccer matches, was known for his unmatched sense of humor and had an appreciation for music, photography, old western movies, and the outdoors. His favorite moments in life were when he could spend time with his family. He was able to light up the room with his musical ability, playing the accordion, key board and later in life the harmonica. Walt touched the heart of many friends and relatives and his spirit lives on in all he loved.

Please join the family at a special mass at St. Peter’s church in Rosendale, New York at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, May 3, 2014.

JFACEBOOK: Breen, Jerry (MC1971) has good news at last!

2014-Apr-27

FROM FACEBOOK

Breen, Jerry (MC1971)

Some good news at last! Some of you may know that my wife Alesia has been in declining health for several years, and had become bedridden. Alesia had gradually lost her ability to walk, with her left leg almost completely paralyzed.

We had her taken to St. Joseph Hospital in Towson twice in the last year. They kept her overnight, did a few tests, and released her both times, without finding out what was wrong. In March, after she had a fainting spell, she was taken to the Greater Baltimore Medical Center. The doctors there kept her for several days and did more tests, including an MRI of her head.They found out that she had an unusual type of brain hernia called a tonsillar herniation. Her lower brain was pressing against her brain stem, causing the gradual paralysis, as well as swallowing and breathing problems.

It was a life-threatening condition, so she was scheduled for emergency brain surgery on March 25th. Immediately after the surgery, she had regained full mobility in her left leg. She was scheduled to be released the next week, but suffered a setback when some food got in her lungs and they filled with fluid and she was in critical condition. (This was caused by continuing swallowing problems.)

Alesia was transferred to a rehabilitation hospital last week and is continuing to recover, but progress has been slow because of her long immobility. It’s been difficult travelling to see her every day, because we have to take 2 buses and the light rail to visit her, so it takes about 6 hours a day. But if she makes enough progress, she may be able to come home in a week or so. Please keep her in your prayers. If you’d like to call her, get in touch with me and I’ll give you her phone number at the hospital.

Thanks,
Jerry Breen

UNIVERSAL CONTROLLER FOR THE INTERCONNECTION OF DISTRIBUTED GENERATORS WITH UTILITY LINES AT CUSTOMER LEVEL VOLTAGES

*** begin quote ***
Abstract

This paper presents the design, construction and performance testing of a controller capable of protecting the utility from any negative side effect of the interconnection of distributed generation (DG) at customer level voltages. The controller is universal in the sense thatit allows for the interconnection of all kinds of distributed generators:synchronous, induction and those that need a power electronicconverter (solar, fuel cell, micro-turbine,
etc

The controller assures that the IEEE standards 1457 for the interconnection of DG and utility standards are complied. Additionally, the controller cuts the fault current in less than a cycle to prevent the increase to the short-circuit duty of the already installed protection equipment. This is especially important in the case of a synchronous interconnection in locations where the short-circuit power of the substation breakers disclose to its limits. A 25kVA utility grade prototype controller has been built and tested in the lab.

JEMAIL: Insull, Bob (MC1963) questions “it depends”

2014-Apr-28

Bob Insull ’63 commented

You ask in your ENDNOTE from issue # 17 (4/27/14) if it’s too little, too late to “define the Church’s brand” by strictly enforcing Canon Law. My answer: It depends on whether that brand is the open inclusive love of Jesus or the rigid legalistic thinking that He scorned in the Pharisees of His time.

# – # – # – # – #

[JR: Isn’t there anything in between. The “brand” should be (imho) “hate the sin; love the sinner”. When someone proclaims to be “Catholic” and is at variance at the basic level, then they have to be held to account. Far too long, scandal has been tacitly permitted. Heaven and Hell is far above my pay grade. But allowing this confusion is leading folks astray. Again, just my POV; not that counts for anything?]

Good morning,

Your email was forwarded to me by Lisa Toscano, my friend and a member of Manhattan’s faculty.

My first job after graduating from Manhattan was in the Admissions office working for Bro. William.

I am saddened by his death and have been reflecting on so many of the life lessons he has taught me.

Please let me know if he will be waked at Manhattan College.

Thanks

LRMC under new management
Published on Wednesday, 30 April 2014 19:16 | |

*** begin quote ***

The troubled Lakeway Regional Medical Center has annunced a Hospital Management Agreement which will lead to a new team taking over the day to day running of the facility. This follows a thwarted attempt to sell the facility to a larger operator.

Here is the April 30th Press Release — “The Board of Lakeway Regional Medical Center (LRMC) has signed a multi-year administrative services agreement with QIR (QHR Intensive Resources) for management support services. The announcement of the agreement was made by Frank Sossi, legal counsel and acting interim chair of the hospital Board of Managers, and Mickey Bilbrey, president of QIR.

Under the terms of the agreement, QIR will furnish an on-site CEO and CFO management team, bringing expertise and resources to strengthen the hospital’s ongoing operations and enabling it to continue providing high quality patient care to the community. The hospital’s Board of Managers will retain full control over governance responsibilities.

“The Board carefully considered its alternatives before choosing QIR,” said Mr. Sossi. “Having engaged QIR last year for consulting support, we got to know them, valued their expertise, and decided QIR would be a good fit to help the hospital grow. We believe that QIR will be an effective partner in strategically moving LRMC forward and improving hospital performance.”

QIR has significant experience working with community hospitals and health systems. Mr. Bilbrey noted that QIR has provided LRMC with financial and operational advisory services over the past several months and understands the specific situation at LRMC: “We look forward to expanding our role to oversee hospital management and working with the LRMC medical staff and employees in meeting the healthcare needs of the Lakeway community.”

Joyce Hein, interim CEO, will continue to serve in this capacity while a national search for a permanent CEO is conducted. Tom Marshall has been named permanent CFO. Mr. Marshall has 25 years’ experience in financial executive positions within the healthcare industry. He is a graduate of Manhattan College and a CPA.”

Good Afternoon All,

Frank, competing for Villanova in the early sixties, was the World’s Fastest Human and held the World Record in the 100 yd dash and 60 yd dash. I remember him as a gentleman and a person who shared his knowledge of sprinting with his fellow runners. Rest in Peace Frank. Please keep Frank and his family in your prayers as they mourn the loss of their loved one. Thank you. God Bless.

Good Evening All,

Bob Mattis shares his thoughts with us with some heart felt words

Thanks Phil,
Brother William and I had a special bond. He was a believer and follower of Track and Field and gave me very important advise during my freshman year. He was a person who cared about us all as individuals first – as is the hallmark of all in the Manhattan Community. I reconnected with him a few years ago, and we relived how important he was to me as a young adult. We have lost a truly special person. Rest in Peace my friend.
Bob

ENDNOTE: Silverstream Priory

Silverstream Priory

Published on Oct 26, 2012

*** begin quote ***

On the Feast of the Dedication of St Michael the Archangel (29 September), in the year of our Lord 2012, the Diocese of Meath in Ireland saw its first monastic profession under the Rule of Saint Benedict in over 473 years, that is, since the dissolution of the Benedictine Priory at Fore in Westmeath by King Henry VIII’s Commissioners in 1539.

With the blessing of His Lordship, Michael Smith, Bishop of Meath, Dom Benedict Maria Andersen (of Denver, Colorado) made his simple triennial profession into the hands of Dom Mark Daniel Kirby, Prior.

This video is a richly visual elaboration on the address given by Father Prior to the newly professed Dom Benedict on that historic day.

I’m not sure that this is the best way to advance. But then who am I, but a sinner.

Spending millions to “hide away”, doesn’t seem to address the hard issues of the day.

But in the attempt to prove I am more than a loon with tin foil hat, I’ve included their link for contributions.

I think Addis Hope is a better effort to support.

Nothing saying one can’t do more.
