WORLD
A Stranger Knocked on Her Door and, Without Saying a Word, Handed Her a Life-Changing Envelope That Made Her ‘Collapse’
Jul. 16, 2014 8:01pm Jason Howerton

*** begin quote ***

To put it bluntly, she is dying.

Suffering from systemic scleroderma, a critical autoimmune disease that is causing her skin, arteries, veins, and internal organs to harden, 48-year-old single mother Stephanie Headley, of Ottawa, Canada, is still in dire need of very expensive, potentially life-saving treatment. Her condition has been deteriorating over the last few years.

What a gift.

That’s really “walking the walk”!

I’m humbled by such charity.

I was saddened to learn today that Professor Mary Ann Groves passed away last November 29th. Professor Groves was one of the most wonderful teachers that I have ever known. She was always concerned about her students academically and personally. I can still hear her voice full of enthusiasm and purpose.

Dr.Groves always encouraged her students to pursue knowledge and strive for excellence in that pursuit. Thank you Professor Groves for the lessons you imparted to us. You live on in our hearts and minds. Thank you for all you gave us.

John “Pop” Watkins (born 1859) was a Negro Leagues catcher and manager for several years before the founding of the first Negro National League.

Watkins played most of his career for the Cuban Giants, until he broke his leg playing for the Giants at Oil City, Pennsylvania in May of 1907. [5] Since the Cuban Giants broke off into several teams, such as the Cuban X-Giants, the Genuine Cuban Giants, the Original Cuban Giants, and even the Famous Cuban Giants, researchers are still working out which players played for which teams, and how the teams split up.

He continued to manage several teams, some called “Pop Watkins Stars” or “Pop Watkins Giants.”[4] Sometime after 1909, he would start the Havana Red Sox, a team which he managed until he died in 1924. During his career, he is said to have helped along the careers of George Dixon, Toussaint Allen, Phil Cockrell, Gifford McDonald,[4] Luke Archer, and Dennis Graham.

As a scout, Watkins is also alleged to have found many white players while scouting for the majors, including John McGraw, Hughie Jennings, John Hummel, Al Schacht, and Jack Dunn.

In the off-season, census records show Watkins may have sold sporting goods. And on his death certificate, it lists Watkins as a “baseball trainer.”

JFOUND: Hanna, Robert M. [MC1980] President to the N.J. Board of Public Utilities (BPU)

2014-Jul-29

http://www.njcth.org/PublicInnerPage/testfolder/Governor-s-Cabinet/Honorable-Lee-Solomon.aspx

Honorable Robert Hanna, Esq., President
NJ Board of Public Utilities

*** begin quote ***

Robert M. Hanna, Esquire, was named by Governor Christopher J. Christie as President to the N.J. Board of Public Utilities (BPU) on December 21, 2011. President Bob Hanna also serves as a member of the Governor’s Cabinet. The BPU has jurisdiction over the rates and facilities of electric, gas, water and wastewater, telephone and cable television companies and works to ensure that consumers have access to safe, reliable, and efficient services at reasonable costs. In addition, the BPU is working to foster innovation, competition and consumer choice in the energy and telecommunications markets.

Prior to his nomination, Bob served as Director of the Division of Law within the New Jersey Department of Law and Public Safety. As Director, Bob was responsible for overseeing a division with more than 500 attorneys and for the supervision of Division of Law matters, including advice and litigation on Christie Administration initiatives, including pension and benefit reform, property tax cap and other “toolkit” items; development and defense of legislation, regulations and Executive Orders; State budget, financing, contracting and “pay-to-play” matters; affirmative civil enforcement actions against consumer fraud, securities fraud, government fraud and healthcare fraud; civil rights enforcement; election law matters; environmental enforcement, permitting and counseling; OPRA and OPMA matters; cy pres and CHAPA reviews and enforcement; DYFS child abuse/neglect matters; education and higher education matters; employment and labor law litigation and counseling; State Police, Homeland Security and Corrections Services; representation of the N.J. Board of Public Utilities, New Jersey Transit, Department of Transportation and UMDNJ; construction, condemnation and debt recovery matters; representation of the Department of Labor and Civil Service Commission; representation of the Department of Banking and Insurance; defending Tort Claims Act claims and actions.

Prior to joining the Office of the N.J. Attorney General in January 2010, Bob was a director in the Newark-based law firm of Gibbons P.C., where he began working in May 2006. In private practice, he represented clients in a wide variety of complex white-collar criminal matters, civil matters and attorney-ethics matters. He also has served as a court-appointed receiver.

Previously, Bob joined the Civil Division of the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of New Jersey in May 1990. There he handled a wide array of affirmative and defensive civil matters, including appeals, on behalf of the federal government. His affirmative civil matters included, among others, a successful civil RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations) action to rid Local 54 of the Hotel Employees and Restaurant Employees Union in Atlantic City of organized crime influence. Bob’s civil matters included defending the U.S. Attorney, federal judges and other federal officials in civil rights actions, litigating significant Freedom of Information Act cases, and opposing the municipality of Secaucus’s attempt to halt a major federal rail transportation project.

In 1997, Bob joined the Frauds Division at the U.S. Attorney’s Office, later serving in a variety of roles, including Chief of the Securities – Health Care Fraud Unit and Criminal Health Care Fraud Coordinator. Among his many white-collar criminal cases, Bob was lead prosecutor in suits regarding the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey (UMDNJ) and major pharmaceutical concern Bristol-Myers Squibb. As a federal prosecutor, Bob also tried complex, lengthy securities and health care fraud criminal cases.
Bob graduated from Manhattan College in 1980 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration. After working for a year at a national public accounting firm, he attended Fordham University School of Law School in New York, serving on the Fordham Law Review staff and graduating in 1984 with a Juris Doctorate degree. Following law school, Bob was a litigation associate at the Cahill Gordon & Reindel law firm in New York, working on a broad range of commercial litigation matters. He is admitted to the practice of law in New Jersey and New York. Born in Teaneck and raised in New City, Bob has lived in Madison for 22 years.

MFOUND: Quotes on Hobby Lobby

2014-Jul-29

http://outloud.com/2014/07/the-hobby-lobby-controversy/

The Hobby Lobby Controversy
Jul 28, 2014 by Anthony Capote

*** begin quote ***

The Supreme Court, however, ruled that Hobby Lobby Corporation was a person and that it had the ability to engage in religious activities and as a result it would be unconstitutional to hinder them from practicing Christian morals.  This, of course, did not come without controversy and has many Americans split on the issue.  Caitlin Philbrick, a sociology student at Manhattan College said of the case “I feel as though the Supreme Court really dropped the ball here. The idea that those who hold positions of authority over the United States would choose to side with a religious group over female reproductive rights is astounding.”  She went on to say that it is “interesting that those on the Supreme Court in favor of Hobby Lobby are all male and happened to be appointed by Republicans (Samuel Alito, Clarence Thomas, Antonin Scalia, Anthony Kennedy, John Roberts).”  When asked how comfortable she would feel if her employer denied access to basic contraceptive services Philbrick said “I would be disheartened. I could never comfortably work for an employer who does not recognize essential family planning services.”  Philbrick also expressed her belief that “the war on women is far from over.”

Thomas Ferguson, the director of the Peace Studies Department at Manhattan College brought to mind the fact that all of the aforementioned white, republican males were also Roman Catholic and managed to work “Christian hegemony into US Law.”  Ferguson went on to suggest that if the owners of Hobby Lobby had been Muslim the ruling of the Court might have been different.  He also pointed out that the ruling of the Supreme Court seems to erode the effects of Roe v Wade and the Affordable care act.

Any Woodbury residents looking to bend the ear of their town supervisor should have had no trouble finding John Burke: He stationed himself outside one of Woodbury’s two post offices every Saturday morning, holding outdoor office hours to gather input from his fellow citizens.

His absence last weekend didn’t got unnoticed.

The 73-year-old underwent a scheduled surgery at Westchester Medical Center in Valhalla on Wednesday and came through it fine, only to suffer unrelated complications afterward, according to his son, Tom. After struggling with illness for several days, Burke died at 1:45 a.m. Tuesday.

Burke, a father of six and grandfather of 13, had been town supervisor since 2006, having eased into politics as a regular and vocal audience member at town meetings and then taking office by unseating an incumbent during a controversy over a 451-home development proposal. He was re-elected four times without opposition, except for a write-in challenge in 2009.

He presided through an eventful period in Woodbury, starting with the incorporation of a Village of Woodbury and division of local-government duties, and culminating recently in votes by the village and town boards to endorse Caesars Entertainment’s bid for a casino license. In between were intermittent clashes with neighboring Kiryas Joel over the village’s water pipeline and other issues.

Throughout, the affable, white-haired former principal considered it an honor to serve the town his family settled in after leaving the Bronx in 1968, his son Tom recalled Tuesday.

“He was so passionate for the town,” he said. “He was very protective of it.”

Burke grew up in the Bronx, attended St. Nicholas of Tolentine High School and Manhattan College and started his career as a business teacher and basketball coach at Sacred Heart High School in Yonkers.

He later took a teaching job at Nanuet Senior High School and went on to be an assistant principal for six years and principal for 23 years at that school. Upon his retirement in 2000, the district named the school after him.

“John was very dedicated to our community and loved by many,” Town Clerk Desiree Potvin said Tuesday in a statement on behalf of the town government. “Amongst his many accomplishments during his tenure, the one he was most proud of was the improvements to the Central Valley Pool/Pond. John was a fair and kind individual with a large, loving family. He will be extremely missed.”

After winning his first election in 2005, Burke said he’d started knocking on doors in June and visited 1,800 households by election day. His son, Tom, pointed to a similar feat of dedication on Tuesday, saying his father logged 105 consecutive Saturdays at the Highland Mills and Central Valley post offices.

But attending his grandchildren’s graduations and other events and receiving their impromptu visits at Town Hall was an even bigger source of pride.

“The one thing that lit up his life was the 13 grandchildren,” he said. “Whatever was going on with the grandkids — that was his joy.”

Top colleges for the money? NYC has 18 of ’em
Money magazine’s first list of the nation’s top schools ranked Cooper Union eighth and Columbia University 22nd. But a tiny school on Long Island stole their glory.

*** begin quote ***

Updated: July 28, 2014 4:17 p.m.

Eighteen schools in New York City made Money magazine’s inaugural list of the 665 colleges and universities that deliver the best education for the money, based on various criteria including graduation rates.

Little-known Webb Institute, a tiny engineering college in Glen Cove, Long Island, was New York state’s top finisher, ranking second overall. The school has just 79 undergraduate students, all on full scholarships, and its alumni earn an average salary of more than $65,000 within five years of graduating. Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art and Columbia University, both in Manhattan, were New York City’s top two finishers, placing eighth and 22nd, respectively.

“Webb is the last private community college in the united States that offers to all students a four-year, full-tuition scholarship,” said William Murray, its director of enrollment management. “This is the first time that we have been ranked.”

Webb was helped by the fact that all of its students got jobs within two months of graduation.

Sister John Joseph was my freshman- and sophomore-year guidance counselor at Bishop Kearney H.S. and she was probably the happiest nun I ever met in my life. I didn’t know religious life could be so joyful until I met Sister John Joseph. She always had a hug and a smile (and a few Tootsie Rolls) for every student who crossed her path. She made everyone feel like they were special, like they mattered and that they were loved (by her and God). I can only imagine the hugs, smiles and Tootsie Rolls that God had waiting for her!

Boiling Spring Lakes takes on city engineer, $75,000 salary
Posted: Wednesday, July 30, 2014 9:51 am | Updated: 9:54 am, Wed Jul 30, 2014.
By Jason Tyson, Staff Writer

*** begin quote ***

Boiling Spring Lakes’ new city engineer has 30 years of civil engineering experience in the private sector and a strong educational background.

The city has announced the employment of William G. Murphy for the newly created role.

Murphy will be paid an annual salary of $75,000 plus benefits and will begin work August 11.

“Mr. Murphy was one of five interviewees for the position,” city manager Jeff Repp said. “Based on his varied experience in engineering, including dealing with local governments on a variety of issues, he quickly rose to the top of the potential applicants. I’m pleased that he has agreed to come on board and develop this new position created by the city’s board of commissioners.”

Murphy completed his undergraduate work at Manhattan College, graduating cum laude with a degree in civil engineering. He received his master’s degree in the same field from Northwestern University in 1981. He also holds a master’s degree in business administration from the University of Connecticut.

“I am very excited about it, for the city engineer has a profound impact on infrastructure improvements and safety for the general public,” Murphy said. “I understand what that is like, for I have a broad-based geotechnical and civil background. I am particularly interested in creating this new role of city engineer.”
Murphy said he has had experience evaluating earthen dams, in wastewater collection and distribution, drainage and road system design, and geohydrology.

He recently served as vice-president for Urban Engineers in Hartford, Connecticut, and was director of engineering and operations for AI Engineers in nearby Middletown from 2008 to 2010.

Obituary

Bardales, Norman R.

Endwell: Norman Richard Bardales, 85, of Endwell, went to the Lord peacefully on July 30, 2014 after being diagnosed with lymphoma.

Born in New York City to Emma and Elisio Bardales, Norman is survived by his sister, Eleanor Garvey; along with his niece and nephews, Arnold, Francis, Paul, and Warren; and his sisters-in-law, Barbara Lynn and Carole Start. He is predeceased by his wife of 47 years, Eileen Bardales; his sister, Dorothy Treuhaft; and brother, Richard Bardales. Norman will be lovingly remembered by his children, Joseph Bardales, Karen O’Connor and husband Michael, and Carolyn Yasharian and husband Robert. Through laughter and smiles he will be kept close and fondly remembered by his adoring grandchildren, Trish O’Connor, Daniel Norman O’Connor, Jonny O’Connor, Chloe O’Connor, and Sophie Yasharian.

He is remembered by his special and enduring friendships with so many, especially his West 62nd Street Boys as “Bots,” his Our Lady of Angels Paris Family that grew even more as the Church of the Holy Family, and neighbors old and new.

With a BEE from Manhattan College and a JD from St. John’s University, Norman Bardales held office in the Law Association, was a Central New York patent attorney, member of the Bar Association of New York State and a registered patent attorney. Upon moving to Upstate New York, he was a member of the Broome County Bar Association and the Broome County Legal Association. He retired from IBM as a patent attorney in 1990.

In his spiritual life he was the President of the Midtown Catholic Association, a member of the Holy Name Society at the Church of the Holy Family, and in 2012 was the first recipient of the Diocese of Syracuse Immaculata Award. A devout Catholic, a United States Marine, a highly knowledgeable patent attorney, a friend, a spiritual adviser, a faithful Yankees fan, a devoted father and loving husband, Norm’s strong faith, loving guidance, wit, and charismatic personality will be missed. He now dances once again with his wife to “Blame it on the Bossanova.”

A Funeral Mass will be offered at the Church of the Holy Family, Endwell, Monday at 10 a.m. Burial will be in Calvary Cemetery, Johnson City. The family will receive friends at the J.A. McCormack Sons Funeral Home, 141 Main St., Binghamton, Sunday from 5-8 p.m. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation in Norm’s memory to the Church of the Holy Family, 3600 Phyllis St., Endwell, NY 13760.

ENDNOTE: Gooferment Skrules as the Gooferment “Plantation”

2014-Aug-02

http://buff.ly/1r3o2WF

“Civil rights organizations and their progressive allies, who all but suggest that blacks cannot achieve unless they are given special privileges, grossly insult and demean black people.But worse than that, when civil rights organizations and their progressive allies pursue special privileges for blacks in college admissions and when they attack academic performance standards as racially discriminatory, they are aiding and abetting an education establishment that delivers fraudulent education. They let educators off the hook, thereby enabling them to continue to produce educational fraud.”

It’s a shame to waste all that talent with a system of Gooferment Skrules that cheat the children of a real education. The Gooferment is immoral, ineffective, and inefficient!

RESPONSE BY Apoldo, Lou (MC1963)

Lyndon B. Johnson was right in secretly predicting that the handouts in the War On Poverty would create a permanent underclass who would become slaves on the Democrat Plantation, and which would keep them voting Democrat for decades. I have no problem with LBJ trying to buy votes, like so many other politicians, except that they have been buying those Democrat votes with my taxpayer money. Should have known that liberals would never spend their own money when they could use other people’s money.

First, the Democrats and Republicans are different “sides” of the Welfare / Warfare state.

Second, the R’s are responsible for the Federal Department of “Education”.

Third, the R’s and D’s “log roll” welfare for Crony Capitalism and “bring home the bacon”.

Neither side of this coin gives a rat’s tush about anything other than power and control.

I feel for future generations that will suffer by what has been done to this great land since the 1860 / 1913 / 1960 Constitutional and non-Constitutional changes.

For my part, I’m sorry I wasn’t smart enough, eloquent enough, or determined enough to change anything.
