POSITRACTION: “Hand Washing with Soap” is pro-life

2014-Oct-16

http://www.ted.com/talks/myriam_sidibe_the_simple_power_of_hand_washing

Filmed September 2014 at TED@Unilever
Myriam Sidibe: The simple power of hand-washing

Myriam Sidibe is a warrior in the fight against childhood disease. Her weapon of choice? A bar of soap. For cost-effective prevention against sickness, it’s hard to beat soapy hand-washing, which cuts down risk of pneumonia, diarrhea, cholera and worse. Sidibe, a public-health expert, makes a smart case for public-private partnerships to promote clean hands — and local, sustainable entrepreneurship.

# – # – # – # – #

How can one be pro-life and not be touched when you hear the number cited?

It’s stunning.

How dumb are “We, Humans”?

I send this to my Usual Suspects, and my “kids” list. Just being tin foil hat crazy ‘uncle’ ferd.

The speaker’s accent and odd phrasing was interesting; I’m sure far better than I could do in a second language.

Maybe the message will get out.

I’d urge all my fellow Jaspers to pass it along as well.

And, for everyone’s sake: “Hand Washing with Soap”!

JFACEBOOK: Menchise, Louis (MC1987) has NOT won the lottery

REPORTING LIVE FROM THE FACEBOOK NEWS DESK
IN THE VIRTUAL JASPER JOTTINGS NEWSROOM …

Louis Menchise

Modern car’s braking systems leave you with the tiniest amount of brakes – due to redundancies – so I was able, with some effort to stop my vehicle. Given that I am a “good relation” of 16 years with my mechanic, he didn’t charge me for a new brake line. The master cylinder was OK. Yet, I still didn’t win the lottery. I’d settle for a new job. Anyone wanna see a resume?

*** begin quote ***

Courtney and Hopkins-Cavanagh aren’t the only candidates vying for the 2nd District seat: Libertarian Dan Reale, 32, a Plainfield paralegal, and Green Party member Bill Clyde, 58, a Madison resident and provost at Manhattan College in the Bronx, say that both Courtney and Hopkins-Cavanagh are a part of the problem.”Frankly, I do think the two-party system is right now at a low point,” said Clyde, an economics professor. He decided to run for Congress – his first time seeking political office – after seeing how positively people responded to his independent-minded essays about political issues.

PRAYERSREQUESTED: Colon, Philip J. (MC1962) prays for Sharon

2014-Oct-28

Good Afternoon All,

It is with sadness that I share the following with you. Noreen and Bob Mattis have just informed me that their dear Friend, Sharon, who has been in our prayers, was called home this morning. Sharon had her very extensive surgery and was expected to soon go from hospital to rehab to begin her recuperation. Sharon, as Bob and Noreen say, is at peace. They refer to The Prayer of St. Francis thanking you for your prayers and thoughts:

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace. Where there is hatred, let me sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where there is doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; where there is sadness, joy.

O, Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console; to be understood as to understand; to be loved as to love; for it is in giving that we receive; it is in pardoning that we are pardoned; it is in dying that we are born again to Eternal Life.

Plese keep this good woman, her Family and Friends, in your prayers as we pray that Family and Friends find peace in the sure knowledge that Sharon is at peace in God’s Eternal Embrace. Thank you. God Bless..

There is a Manhattan connection in the Picture – On the left end standing is Otto Obermaier, ’57, on the right end is Judge John Martin, ’57, both former U.S. Attorneys for the Southern District, and in the Center Standing, is James Comey, Director of the FBI, son of J.

ENDNOTE: Empathy is a Catholic virtue

2014-Nov-01

http://www.ted.com/talks/sam_richards_a_radical_experiment_in_empathy

Filmed October 2010 at TEDxPSU
Sam Richards: A radical experiment in empathy

*** begin quote ***

By leading the Americans in his audience step by step through the thought process, sociologist Sam Richards sets an extraordinary challenge: can they understand — not approve of, but understand — the motivations of an Iraqi insurgent? And by extension, can anyone truly understand and empathize with another? (Filmed at TEDxPSU.)

*** end quote ***

As a little L libertarian who is anti-war pro-life pro-choice, I can empathize with what he is saying.

I wish we had a foreign policy more like Switzerland.

I wish we had a domestic policy of “universal consent” “zero aggression principle” MYOB and liberty for all.

And if wishes were horses, beggars would ride.

Sigh!

It’s a twenty minute video.

Just watch it with an open mind.

Reminded me of the movie “Red Dawn”.
