POSITRACTION: He was just walking down a street …

A 1 Year Old Child Fell To What Should’ve Been Certain Death. But Watch THIS…OMG.

*** begin quote ***

Our society focuses on fictional superheroes because we’re drawn to the seemingly impossible. Lines of people will wait to see a new Ironman or Captain America movie… but probably don’t give a second’s thought to the real heroes out there. There are thousands of men and woman that save the lives of others, but no one knows that they are doing it.

Take, for example, this man in China. He was just walking down a street when he noticed tragedy in the making… and then stopped to help. Most passers by kept on going, but he and another man stopped to save a life.

Hope I would have such an opportunity and measure up!

“A Heart and a Half”: Brother Andronis, F.S.C. (1811-1898)
June 9, 2014 By Pat McNamara 0 Comments

*** begin quote ***

The Brothers of the Christian School (Fratres Scholarum Christianarum) were founded by St. John Baptist De La Salle in 1600′s France. The community first came to the United States in 1848, beginning their work in New York City. Over the next few years the Brothers established parochial schools, high schools and colleges nationwide. Their institutions of higher learning included Manhattan College in New York City, La Salle University in Philadelphia, and Christian Brothers University in Memphis. The following is an account of one of their early members in the United States:

Brother Andronis (Alex Joseph Gadenne, 1811-1898), the last survivor of the founders of the New York community, was born in Lille, in the diocese of Cambrai, France, in 1811. Nothing is known concerning his early life, prior to his admission in the Paris novitiate in the spring of 1836, except that he belonged to a wealthy family and had inherited a considerable patrimony.

In 1837, he began his teaching career in Montereau. Two years later he was transferred to the Parish School of the Holy Infancy. It is possibly for this reason Brother John Chrysostom suggested the name Academy of the Holy Infant Jesus for the boarding school opened in 1853, which ultimately became known as Manhattan College. In 1841, at the age of thirty, because of his maturity of character and edifying piety, Brother Andronis was appointed Director of Novices at Nantes. He held this office for seven years and trained many novices who subsequently occupied positions of eminence in the Institute, such as Brother Cyrion, Vistor of Nantes, and Brother Cyrus, Assistant.

Mary Ellen Wilcox
Obituary

Mary Ellen Wilcox died Monday, June 9, 2014 at her home in Sag Harbor, N.Y. She was born on August 7th 1947 to Seeley and Dorothy (Cyr) Wilcox. Her childhood days were spent in Ferrisburg, VT in the fields and pastures along Little Otter Creek. She graduated from Vengennes Union High School and Johnson State College, where she was known for her athletic ability. She was one of two women to ever be recognized by the college for female athletic ability. Later she earned her master’s degree and professional diploma from Manhattan College in Riverdale, New York. She moved to Westchester County, New York in 1969 and began her career in education in the Lakeland School district, which spanned a total of 32 years; 10 years as a 6th grade social studies teacher and the remaining time as a guidance counselor in the middle schools.

She is survived by her life partner of 33 years, Ann Wallingford and her beloved King Charles Spaniel, Tucker. She leaves two brothers, Gary in Liberty, New York, and Marvin (Marty) of Keene, New Hampshire. There are 2 nieces and 3 grandnephews. Of significance to her is her chosen family in Kentucky: brother-in-law, Leroy and his wife Barbara Wallingford of Maysville, Kentucky, nephew, Darrin Wallingford and daughters, Eve and Andie of Lexington, Kentucky, and niece, Lisa and husband David Hamm, and sons, Tyler and Austin of Maysville, Kentucky.

Her life was so enriched and blessed with numerous friends. She took great comfort and peace in nature through gardening, quietly observing and bonding with special critters. She frequently said, “Nature centers me.” She also enjoyed cooking, kayaking, biking, watching women’s sports but most importantly being with her friends and family. After moving to Sag Harbor she became a volunteer at the Sag Harbor Community Food Pantry, which gave great meaning to her life. She would say, “I come home with so much more than I gave.”

A memorial service will be held on Tuesday, June 17th at the Old Whalers Presbyterian Church, 44 Union St., Sag Harbor, NY at 2:00pm, with the pastor, Mark Phillips, officiating. Memorial donations should be given to either the Sag Harbor Community Food Pantry; 44 Union Street P.O. Box 1241, Sag Harbor, NY 11963 or to the East End Hospice; P.O. Box 1048, Westhampton, NY 11978.

Team Tempesta Kicks Off West Caldwell Republican Campaign
Mayor Joseph Tempesta seeks a fifth term, while Michael Docteroff and Kathy Canale are running for their first full terms.Posted by Mike Pignataro (Editor) , June 10, 2014 at 03:30 PM

*** begin quote ***

Docteroff was appointed councilman in December to fill an unexpired term following the resignation of Dominick Aiello. Docteroff is a graduate of Manhattan College and is the president of M.A.D. Technologies, which offers consulting expertise for the hospitality industry. Docteroff and his wife, Stacy Veneri, have two children, Lauren and Jack.

“My experience for the past six months has been both rewarding and challenging,” Docteroff said. “Being a member of the Planning and Technology Committee as well as the Recreation and Parks Committee was a good fit for me personally as both my professional background in technology and my volunteer background in coaching and as President of the Caldwell Gridiron Club made for an easy transition to help our community.

“I look forward to more positive changes for the Township in the area of technology and I look forward to working with Mayor Joe Tempesta and Kathy Canale as well as the rest of the Council Team over the next three years.”

PRAYERSREQUESTED: Colon, Philip J. (MC1962) has another cause

2014-Jun-11

Good Evening All,

Dave Ellis, a good friend and member of our Retreat Team asks for our prayers for 29 year old Brian who was admitted to New York Hospital on Monday. Brian will begin a 4 Day session of Chemo Treatments and then have 2 or 3 more sessions 3 weeks apart. He will then have a PET Scan to assess progress. Id things go as hoped, Brian will then have a month of hospitalization for Stem Cell Transplants. Dave tells us that throughout the long ordeal leading up to these treatments, Brian and his Family have not faltered in their faith. As Dave says, ” They have remained steadfastly prayerful and hopeful, trusting in the Lord.”

Dave has shared a beautiful prayer that I would ask that we join our voices to and raise the volume for Brian and his family as Brian enters this next treatment phase. We pray that our voices be heard as we keep them in our prayers and remain open to God’s Will.

Father in heaven, grant Brian comfort. Give him courage when afraid, patience when afflicted, hope when dejected, and when alone assure him of the prayerful support of your holy people. We ask this through Christ our Lord.

Thank you. Please keep the volume up. God Bless.

Born and raised in Inwood, NY, both of Deacon Christopher Mirabal’s parents are from the Dominican Republic. Thanks to the formation of his mother and religious family members and priests, Christopher began to discern his vocation to the priesthood at the age of 14. Divine providence and the need for Hispanic priests brought him to know about the Diocese of Rockville Centre during his third year in Manhattan College, where he studied Philosophy and Religious Studies. He entered the Douglaston Seminary Residence in 2009. After graduating from Manhattan College, he entered the Seminary of the Immaculate Conception in 2010. He graduated with an MA in Theology in 2013 and a M. Div. in 2014.

During his time in the major seminary, he served in various parishes, including: Our Lady of Loretto, Hempstead; Saint Mary’s Manhasset; Saint Anne’s, Brentwood; and Saint Hugh of Lincoln, Huntington Station. “I am excited to serve selflessly the communities that form the Diocese of Rockville Centre as a priest with the heart of the Shepherd, Jesus Christ,” said Deacon Mirabal. “My ministerial goal is to be like Christ: bridge communities together into one diverse family, that is, the Church.”

176 New book on Amazon

I have wanted to publish a digital book with Amazon for several months. New developments allowed me to make this happen quickly—Amazon now has a plugin for Adobe inDesign that allows easy conversion from inDesign files to Mobi files (the type necessary to publish on the Kindle).

As the title suggests the book is a collection of 53 paintings along with a handful of woodcuts accompanied by short paragraphs describing the work and in some cases the technique. Be sure to pinch the images to get close-up views of the thick texture. There is a short essay at the end of the book about painting with thick paint.

I made the book so I can view my work in the field. In a month I’ll be going to the Door County Plein Air Festival and I find it useful to be able to view a variety of paintings as a means to get into the flow. It’s a big confidence booster and I want to give Door County my best effort.

The book is made specifically for viewing on the Kindle reader for the iPhone. I always have my iPhone with me in the field and it should prove very convenient. But the book also works on the Kindle Fire, the iPad, as well as the Kindle Reader for any Android phone, or PC or Mac computer. It really is a great way to view work away from the studio. If you have a Prime account you can borrow it for free. If you download it I hope you will consider giving it a review.

Many thanks in advance.

JFOUND: Yarossi, Paul [MC1973] ARTBA’s highest honor

2014-Jun-12

HNTB’s Paul Yarossi recognized with ARTBA’s highest honor

*** begin quote ***

Washington, D.C. — Paul Yarossi, president of HNTB Holdings Ltd., in New York City, is the sole recipient of the American Road & Transportation Builders Association’s (ARTBA) highest honor — the 2013 ARTBA Award. It was presented at a June 10 luncheon during the association’s Federal Issues Program in Washington, D.C.

Established in 1960, the ARTBA Award recognizes individuals for outstanding contributions that have advanced the broad goals of the association. Over the years, ARTBA Award recipients have included several governors, more than 25 U.S. senators or representatives, two U.S. secretaries of transportation and dozens of top leaders and executives from government and the private sector of the transportation construction industry.

Yarossi was honored for his more than 40 years of work in the industry. He first joined HNTB, one of the nation’s top engineering, architecture, and construction management firms, in 1973 after graduating with a civil engineering degree from Manhattan College. He directs the firm’s governance, capitalization strategy, compliance and audit functions, as well as its external and government relations. Previously, he was chair of HNTB’s aviation practice, and officer-in-charge for several HNTB offices in New York and New Jersey. He has also been instrumental in formulating the firm’s training and development programs.

Yarossi’s leadership positions in ARTBA over the past 15 years are long and distinguished: chairman of the board, senior vice chairman, first vice chairman, vice chairman at-large, chairman of the Transportation Design & Construction Innovation Advisory Committee, co-chairman of the ARTBA SAFETEA-LU Reauthorization Task Force, and a trustee of the ARTBA Transportation Development Foundation.

As ARTBA chairman, Yarossi played a critical role in the July 2012 passage of the two-year, MAP-21 surface transportation investment law. The same day President Obama signed that bill into law; Yarossi took immediate steps to prepare the transportation design and construction industry for the next bill with the creation of the Trans 2020 Task Force. Also during his tenure as ARTBA chairman, and with an eye to the future, he helped launch the Dr. J. Don Brock TransOvation Workshop and the Local Transportation Management Virtual Conference & Innovation Showcase (LoTrans) featuring Best Practices in Work Zone Safety.

As a volunteer leader, Paul has also been on the front lines of many policy battles on transportation investment and business issues working in key roles with the Council on Competitiveness, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Let’s Rebuild America Leadership Council, the Design Professionals Coalition, and the American Council of Engineering Companies.

I literally couldn’t pick just one part of this to share, the whole article needs context and needs to be read from start to finish. It’s not an easy read, but we are all accountable.

No country for young women: Honour crimes and infanticide in Ireland
Posted on June 3, 2014 by Stephanie Lord

*** begin quote ***

When I was in first year in secondary school in 1997, a girl in the year above me was pregnant. She was 14. The only people who I ever heard say anything negative about her were a group of older girls who wore their tiny feet “pro-life” pins on their uniforms with pride. They slagged her behind her back, and said she would be a bad mother. They positioned themselves as the morally superior ones who cared for the baby, but not the unmarried mother. They are the remnants of an Ireland, a quasi-clerical fascist state, that we’d like to believe is in the past, but still lingers on.

The news broke last week of a septic tank filled with the remains of 796 children and babies in Galway. The remains were accumulated from the years 1925 to 1961 and a common cause of death was malnutrition and preventable disease. The Bon Secours “Home” had housed thousands of unmarried mothers and their children down through the years. These women had violated the honour of their communities, by bringing shame on their families through “illegitimate” pregnancy and therefore had to be hidden at all costs, and punished for their transgressions. The children died as they lived, discarded like the refuse of society that the Church considered them and the mothers that gave birth to them to be. Most of the children who survived were put to work in industrial schools under the supervision of perverts and sadists.

Thousands of the healthy ones were sold abroad – mostly to the US – for “adoption.” For the ones who remained, the outlook was poor. Mortality rates of 50% or 60% were common in these homes. In the case of the ones that died, either the Church did not feel they were valuable enough to feed and care for, or they actively worked towards their death. The risk they posed to the social order by virtue of the circumstances of their conception and birth was too great to let go unchecked. These children certainly did not die for lack of money or resources on the Church’s part (they had an income from the children they sold), and the fewer children of this kind there were, the less threat there was to the church’s control over society.

If the Church had allowed them to grow up to be functioning adults in Irish society it would have ran the risk of demonstrating that the institution of marriage was not absolutely integral to the moral well-being of a person. Women were not allowed keep their babies because the shame that their existence brought upon the community would be far too great. They were imprisoned within Magdalene Laundries to atone for their sins of honour, and their babies were removed from them as part of their punishment – women who dishonoured the community were deemed to unfit to parent.

*** and ***

But when we look the other way, and allow the lie that we live in a modern progressive democracy to breathe, we allow our authoritarian Catholic past to continue to cast its shadow.
