POSITRACTION: A “miracle” saves a baby

2015-Nov-15

New Cell Therapy Clears Leukemia in Dying Baby
Thursday, 05 Nov 2015 04:27 PM

*** begin quote ***

A baby whom doctors thought almost certain to die has been cleared of a previously incurable leukemia in the first human use of an “off-the-shelf” cell therapy from Cellectis that creates designer immune cells.

One-year-old Layla had run out of all other treatment options when doctors at Britain’s Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) gave her the highly experimental, genetically edited cells in a tiny 1-milliliter intravenous infusion.

Two months later, she was cancer-free and she is now home from hospital, the doctors said at a briefing about her case in London on Wednesday.

“Her leukemia was so aggressive that such a response is almost a miracle,” said Paul Veys, a professor and director of bone marrow transplant at GOSH who led the team treating Layla.

*** end quote ***

Amazing at the possibilities this represents.

How little we humans know and yet how arrogant we are about our “knowledge”.

Now let’s think about all those human beings that have been “aborted” (i.e., murdered). Imagine what that human capital could have created.

Look at Ben Carson (i.e., single Detroit mom raised him). Now imagine a million or more like him.

Argh!

We could have many more “miracles” if we would collectively just pull our heads out of our <synonym for several donkeys>!

MOBIT: Harkins, James P. [MCxfaculty RIP] on 2015-Oct-28

2015-Nov-15

http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/washingtonpost/obituary.aspx?n=JAMES-P-HARKINS&pid=176509557

JAMES P. HARKINS

Lt. Colonel JAMES PATRICK HARKINS WWII and Korean conflict veteran passed away peacefully on Wednesday, October 28, 2015 in McLean, VA at the age of 93, surrounded by his loving family.

Mr. Harkins was born in Davenport, Iowa on December 17, 1921 to the late James Patrick Aloysius Harkins and Marian Christine Harrison Harkins. He had three sisters, the late Barbara Harkins, the late Dorothy Harkins and the late Mary Harkins. Mr. Harkins was raised in Methuen, Massachusetts and New York City, New York. He attended Newtown High School in Queens, New York, from which he graduated in 1939.

While attending High School, Mr. Harkins worked for the National Broadcasting Company (NBC) in Radio City. After High School, he worked for the New York World’s Fair, welcoming visitors to the Ford Motor Company exhibit. During that same year, Mr. Harkins enlisted in the 7th Regiment of the New York National Guard for an anticipated period of 24 months of active duty. Pearl Harbor changed those plans and the 24 months became 5 ½ years of active duty. Colonel Harkins served in Air Control for the Mighty 8th Air Force, 492nd Bomb Group, and was headquartered in Warrington, UK during the war.

After the war, Mr. Harkins attended Harvard University under the GI Bill and graduated in 1949 with a degree in Economics and History. While at Harvard, he was an active and enthusiastic member of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity (SAE).

In 1950, after the outbreak of war in Korea, Colonel Harkins was recalled to the Air Force as a Captain and became an Assistant Professor of Air Science and Tactics at Manhattan College and New York University. Colonel Harkins resigned from active duty in 1954, after armed hostilities in Korea came to an end. He remained in the Air Force Reserves, attaining the rank of Lt. Colonel.

Mr. Harkins met Marta Ulrika Eden, a Swedish immigrant, in 1958 while both lived in Greenwich Village in New York City. They were married on January 16, 1959 and enjoyed 56 years of wedded bliss. After marrying, Mr. Harkins joined the Civil Service, taking a position with the Veteran’s Administration. First assigned in Croton, New York and later at Veteran’s Administration headquarters in Washington, DC.

They lived in Peekskill, New York and Arlington, VA, where they raised their children. Mr. Harkins retired from the Civil Service in 1984. He is survived by his wife of 56 years, Marta of McLean, Virginia; his son Adrian of Stockholm, Sweden and his wife, Birgitta; his daughter Marian of Ashburn, Virginia and her husband, Roger; his son Paul of Round Hill, Virginia and his wife, Ania; his daughter-in-law Susan of Round Hill, Virginia; his seven grandchildren – Anna, Malin, James, Jorden, Sarah, Joseph and Grace; great-granddaughter Lycke and great-grandson Trey.

Mr. Harkins is remembered with deep love for his sense of humor, his intellectual hunger, his love of books, his keen interest in his children and grandchildren and for piloting his family ship with warmth, grace and stability for so many years.

A Celebration of Life service will be held for Mr. Harkins on Sunday, November 22, 2015 at 2PM at the Chapel at Vinson Hall, 6251 Old Dominion Drive, McLean, VA 22101. In lieu of flowers, donations and/or memorial contributions can be made to: The 8th Air Force Historical Society PO Box 60369 Savannah, GA 31420-0369

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

2015-Nov-16

Good Morning All,

The Brother of a friend of Peggy and I is in need of our prayers. Richard is in hospital down in Florida. A couple of weeks ago Richard woke up and was unable to walk. It was discovered that his Spinal Disks have deteriorated and everything was pressing in on his spinal cord causing pain and paralysis. For the pst two weeks Richard has been very confused, not knowing who his Sister Dorothy and their Mother is. Besides that, a severe infection with a side effect of confusion has taken its’ toll. He is doing better but his mind is not totally connecting. It is hoped that his mind did not suffer permanent damage. Please keep Richard, Dorothy and their Mom in your prayers as we pray for a swift and complete recovery free of complications. Richard is a retired Phyisist. He retired last year from Brookhaven labs and has been enjoying his retirement in Florida. We need to get him back to that. Thank you. God Bless.

JNEWS: Smith, Bob [MC1974] at New York Supreme Court Civil Branch

2015-Nov-19

http://www.tribecatrib.com/content/appreciation-farewell-lieutenant-bob

AN APPRECIATION: FAREWELL TO ‘LIEUTENANT BOB’
By Monica Forrestall

*** begin quote ***

Wednesday, Nov. 19 was Tribeca’s beloved Lt. Bob Smith’s last day on the job. For 15 years, Smith has stood at the doorway of the New York Supreme Court Civil Branch building at 71 Thomas St. (with a total of 29 years working in the courts).

And so this was the last day that our son Maxwell Schuss, who’s walked by “Bob’s corner” every school day for the last 8-plus years, would be seeing him. Max had gotten up early to put the finishing touches on a goodbye card (Yankees themed). A little reminiscing, gratitude and a fond farewell were in order for our family on this morning.

For years, Smith had been part of the morning ritual of our son Max and many other neighborhood children as they walk to school and stop to say good morning. Max’s friendship with Bob goes back to when he was in kindergarten at P.S. 234.

“He’s had a big impact on kids in our neighborhood,” said Max, “because school can be stressful but he’ll smile, says hello and it starts the day off right.”

So many times we’ve walked down Thomas Street to West Broadway on the block’s downward slope, and see ahead other children stopping to say hello.

Bob, nicknamed “Officer Bob,” is a tall, friendly man, always with a nice word for kids headed to school. “I always smile, and try to make them smile, even if they’re crying,” Bob said.

Bob, who has a Masters from Manhattan College and taught school for seven years, said he had “always greeted my kids with a big good morning at the start of each day, and taught them to do the same.” He kept that tradition going in Tribeca and helped to foster a small-town feeling, where everyone knows the name of the postman or the lady at the corner store. His co-workers dubbed him the “Mayor of Thomas Street” or his friendly greetings to passersby.

Costello, Donald (MC1954)

From the above Google search I found his obituary. I talked with two of his children. He was incapacitated for the last ten years. Joe was Regent of ASB in 1954. He was in the first Air Force ROTC class and was commissioned in 1954 and served in the Air Force during the Korean war.

He was a senior sales Manager at Proctor and Gamble and was loved by those he worked with.

I wrote and submitted this information twice and was told that it was not received. I submitted is two more times each time requesting that I be informed that it was received. I have been looking for the announcement for over a week.

PLEASE ADAPT

ENDNOTE: Courage of some women demonstrates the value of all women

http://www.littlethings.com/great-netherlands-horse-rescue-v2/

100 Horses Stuck On Island Are Rescued By All-Female Team Of Heroes
By Barbara Diamond

*** begin quote ***

In 2006, nearly 100 horses were stranded on a small island in the Netherlands. A huge storm surge pushed seawater into the earth outside the dikes of Marrum, a town 90 miles from Amsterdam. Nineteen horses drowned or died of exposure on the muddy knoll that was turned into an island.

*** and ***

Several women on horseback guided the animals back to safety 650 yards away, and the entire herd — except one horse — followed without hesitation. Norma, who ended up suffering from pneumonia, remained on-site the day of the rescue to help transport the horses.

*** end quote ***

First I’ve ever heard of this.

Maybe it’s not the most important stories ever written, but then again maybe it is.

All women? Where were all the men?

In this day an age when women are not valued, this should demonstrate how short sighted human beings are.

Between the sex selection abortions, the “one child” policy, and the countless abortions, humanity is throwing away more than 50% of the intellectual assets that God gives us. Add to that the loss due to the welfare system that “mentally disables” people in a victim mentality and the warfare system that kills and maims countless numbers, and you have a recipe for a self-inflicted disaster!
