POSITRACTION: Major league baseball dream


Guilford Native Gets Second Chance at MLB
Guilford native was hit in the head during his first and only at bat in the major leagues.
By LeAnne Gendreau | Thursday, Sep 27, 2012 | Updated 10:09 AM EDT

*** begin quote ***

Adam Greenberg’s major league baseball dream came true on July 9, 2005 and ended moments later when he was hit in the head by a 92-per-mile per hour pitch.

But after a nationwide push, the 31-year-old Guilford native is getting one more chance. It will be with the Miami Marlins, the team he was batting against when he was hit. The team was then the Florida Marlins.

Greenberg, who now lives in Branford, spoke exclusively with the Today Show on Thursday and has been offered a one-day contract to play for the Marlins on Tuesday, Oct. 2 against the New York Mets.

[JR: Bad things happen; good things happen. I guess it all balances out in the end. Like that legendary story, about the Kings who asks for advice. "This too shall pass." Both bad and good. Have to surf the emotional waves. Nothing is SO good; nothing is SO bad. Just stay balanced.]

ADMINISTRIVIA: New "where is waldo" "feature".

Ever played where in the world is waldo in the newspaper?

Waldo, the beloved children's story character, (although I don't know why), is "hidden" in a picture of a grazillion look a likes. The child, or adult seeking to avoid Alzheimer's or boredom, is supposed to find Waldo.

In the Jasper Jottings version, I've found a tantalizing fragment of a Jasper, usually on LinkedIn, but unable to locate (usually quickly) the full public profile. (I have no reason to pay LinkedIn's subscription fees. This was not the deal when they first started. But they too succumbed to the financial pressure and changed their t's and c's. Any wonder I don't TRUST any free service. So many have gone the same way. Plaxo springs to mind.

SO rather than waste a good fragment. I'll post them under the category WALDO.

First person to discover the Jasper and places the "ppop" -- the name, the link, and how you found it -- in the comment field for the post wins a "J". Next time they win an "A". First person to spell out JASPER, I'll buy a beer at my convenience.

Jaspers, who work for LinkedIn, like Bart, or who are headhunters with the recruiter LinkedIn package at work, or work for MC with access to the "official" alumni database, can play but … really … what's the point. Like taking an exam, knowing the answers.

We should give applause to those who are innovative.

Care to play?

First one coming up.

William O. Lenihan, Sr., 79, of Delray Beach, FL and formerly of New Canaan, CT died peacefully on October 12, 2012 at Norwalk Hospital, surrounded by his children and grandchildren.

> (johnmac -- An All Hallows Grad, a couple of years ahead of me, and a friend of a close friend of mine, Msgr. Charlie Cavanagh was a priest for over 40 years; his defrocking led to his loss of home and pension. His accuser has since recanted the accusations and admitted that, not only was there no sexual improprieties on a Washington, DC trip, there was no such trip . In another article, his lawyer, ex Assemblyman (B, NY) and ex-Manhattan Prep and Notre Dame basketball star John Dearie was quoted as saying "I think Cardinal Egan has a lot of questions to answer on the stand" -- no matter what the outcome, it seems to me that some of the public secrecy surrounding Charlie's Erie, PA trial will be swept away!)

> A well known and once well regarded Irish American priest in the Bronx is suing the Archdiocese of New York for libel. Charles Kavanagh claims that the sex abuse allegations made against him were false, and that church officials here knew it when they repeated them in public.
> According to NBC in his court filing this week Kavanagh said his chief accuser had withdrawn the allegations made in 2002 that the priest had molested him when he was a teenager during a church trip to Washington, D.C.
> 'The statement was not true, and I apologize for it,' former accuser Daniel Donohue wrote in a sworn statement submitted to the federal court.
> Donohue had previously claimed that Kavanaugh got into his bed in a Washington hotel room and had rubbed against him. Donohue had also claimed that when Kavanagh held his hands during prayer it made him uncomfortable.
> 'The pointed finger has come back. He has withdrawn the only allegation against Monsignor Kavanagh,' his attorney John Dearie told the court.

JHQ: 16 Recipients of James Patterson Scholarships


Manhattan College Selects 16 Recipients of James Patterson Scholarships

Eight juniors and eight seniors were selected as the 2012 recipients of scholarships created by award-winning author James Patterson ’69.

Since the establishment of 16 James Patterson Scholarships was first announced in May, thanks to the generosity of award-winning author and alumnus James Patterson ’69, Manhattan College has reviewed the applications of several hundred students. The College is pleased to report that eight juniors and eight seniors from various disciplines were recently selected to receive the scholarships for the 2012-2013 academic year.

Patterson started the scholarship program as a way to recognize and reward the academic achievement and leadership potential of Manhattan students. The 16 recipients were chosen based on merit, need and involvement in activities related to the College’s mission, and all exemplify hard work, determination and leadership in the classroom and within the campus community.

The scholarship recipients include:

Giuliana Addesso, junior, secondary education (Yonkers, NY)
Morgan A. Maclearie, junior, special and elementary education (Toms River, NJ)
Claire C. Miksad, junior, elementary education (Ridgefield, CT)
Maria A. Sanzari, junior, special and elementary education (North Haven, CT)
Eric Scattaretico, junior, special and elementary education (Yorktown Heights, NY)
Justin M. Vento, junior, chemical engineering (Lincroft, NJ)
Kathleen P. White, junior, history and peace studies (Keansburg, NJ)
Kathryn E. Wojtkiewicz, junior, philosophy and English (Lancaster, NY)
Walaa K. Abdallah, senior, chemical engineering (Yonkers, NY)

Jeanette D. Settembre, senior, communication (Yorktown, NY)
Nicole M. Vacca, senior, communication (Bronx, NY)
Colleen E. Walsh, senior, secondary education (Baltimore, MD)

“The scholarship program will support students whose success thus far gives promise of extraordinary accomplishment, leadership and service,” Patterson said. “My hope is that this recognition will encourage these talented young men and women to continue their good work, and inspire them to go out after graduation to make a real difference in their communities.”

The scholarship program will support students whose success thus far gives promise of extraordinary accomplishment, leadership and service. James Patterson

In its first year, the scholarship program will award all 2012-2013 recipients with $5,000 each. During the 2013-2014 academic year, Patterson will increase the scholarships from 16 to 18, and recognize eight juniors and 10 seniors with awards. In addition next year, four of the senior scholarship recipients will be awarded $7,500 each based on essay submissions about their personal contributions made to the College throughout their junior year.

“The students selected as recipients of the new Patterson scholarships are our future leaders,” said Brennan O’Donnell, Ph.D., president of Manhattan College. “They are young men and women who are excelling both in their coursework and through their contributions to our community and our mission.”

In addition to the James Patterson Scholarships, Patterson currently funds the James Patterson Minority Scholarship at Manhattan, which started in 2006 and has supported the education of 25 students.

Patterson has had 19 consecutive No. 1 novels on The New York Times Bestseller List, and holds The New York Times and Guinness World Records for most hardcover fiction best-selling titles by a single author (76). His books include the top-selling detective series, Alex Cross featuring Along Came a Spider and Kiss the Girls, and the popular Maximum Ride, Daniel X and Witch & Wizard series.

As an author, Patterson is passionate about books and encouraging people of all ages to read. In fact, he launched the website ReadKiddoRead.com as a tool for adults to help find books for kids to read. He also rewards groups or individuals who use creative and effective ways to spread the joy of reading with the James Patterson Pageturner Awards, and makes regular donations of thousands of books to troops overseas.

WINDHAM - Sister Angeline "Angie" Whidden (formerly Sister M. Benedicta), 86, a Sister of Mercy for 68 years, died Monday, Oct. 15, 2012, after a long illness.

Sister Angie was born in Natick, Mass., and was a resident of Manchester when she entered the Sisters of Mercy. She was the daughter of Charles and Annie (Doherty) Whidden. Sister Angie held a B.A. degree in English from Mount St. Mary College in Hooksett, an M.A. in English from the University of New Hampshire in Durham, and an M.A. in catechetical theology from Manhattan College in New York City.

For more than 25 years, she was a teacher at elementary and secondary schools in New Hampshire. She taught at St. Raphael School in Manchester, St. Patrick School in Portsmouth, St. Joseph School in Keene, and St. Mary School in Claremont.

She also received awards from the Greater Manchester Association for Social Service Agencies, and from the New England Catholic Council for Social Ministries. In November 1997, Sister Angie received an award from New Horizons for New Hampshire in recognition of her role in starting the soup kitchen.

JHQ: Harr, Lois (MCstaff) receives Lasallian Educator Award


Manhattan College’s Lois Harr Receives Lasallian Educator Award

Bronx resident recognized for outstanding work and dedication.

Lois Harr, director of Campus Ministry and Social Action at Manhattan College, will receive the annual Distinguished Lasallian Educator Award at the Huether Lasallian Conference, Nov. 15-17. The award honors educators for their outstanding work and dedication to exemplify the ideals of St. John Baptist de La Salle, patron saint of teachers.

The Brothers of the Christian Schools, District of Eastern North America (DENA) notified Harr of the honor today, and she was selected along with two additional recipients.

“It is an honor and privilege, on behalf of the District’s Mission Executive Council, to recognize Ms. Lois Harr as one of our three Distinguished Lasallian Educators for 2012,” said Alan Weyland, executive director for mission and ministry at DENA. “In the context of this year’s Huether Lasallian Conference theme, Faith in Action: Global Engagement through Lasallian Education, Lois epitomizes the ideals of Christian service, especially to the poor. Lois’ tireless work for social justice and civic engagement, along with her unwavering faith and zeal, as educator, mentor and advocate, make her a most deserving recipient.”

Harr, a lifetime resident of the Bronx, has integrated faith with her profession to educate the Manhattan community on the importance of helping others. In addition to working as director of Campus Ministry and Social Action since 1998, she is the assistant to the vice president for Student Life and is an adjunct instructor of religious studies. In Harr’s Urban America and Catholic Social Teaching course, students are required to complete 25 hours of service-learning community work outside of the classroom and have partnered with a number of community organizations to make a difference.

During Harr’s time at Manhattan, she has organized a variety of service opportunities for students including blood drives, trips to the Part of the Solution (POTS) soup kitchen in the Bronx, and fair trade events on campus, which helped the College become the first Fair Trade Certified College in New York City.

She has also helped to plan many Lasallian Outreach Volunteer Experience trips (L.O.V.E.), and attended trips to Ecuador, Kenya and Rwanda. The program was created to further promote the College’s Lasallian tradition of expanding the pillars of service and social justice by building community, deepening spirituality and experiencing cultural immersion.

“Lois Harr is universally respected and admired by faculty, student life professionals, students, administrators and staff,” said Brennan O’Donnell, Ph.D., president of Manhattan College. “The award is much deserved, as she is without a doubt among the handful of people in our community whose work most strongly embodies the charism of the De La Salle Brothers.”

In addition, Harr’s commitment to foster the Lasallian mission is evident through her completion of the Lasallian Leadership Institute in 2003 and her participation in the Lasallian Social Justice Institute (LSJI) in 2004 and 2005. She was on the planning team for the third LSJI on homelessness in 2006 and was a facilitator/presenter for LSJI San Francisco during the summers of 2007 and 2008.

Harr graduated from Fordham University with a bachelor’s in political science and master’s in religious studies from St. Joseph’s Seminary.

Your ISP’s email is a trap to lock you in to their service. It can leave you high and dry at the most inopportune times. And, you can be forced to change if they get bought out or go out. Why risk it?

Change your ISP and you have to change your email address. Why? You can have your own domain and still use the ISP's services or Google's GMAIL. No one needs to know and no one ever has to change anything.


When I get these I don't know if anyone wants me to do anything? Other than update my address bool.

ENDNOTE: Where is the moral center?


October 11th, 2012 at 8:35 am
1 in 5 adults in the U.S. have no religious affiliation
in: Analysis,Latest Trend,Spirituality

*** begin quote ***

One in five U.S. adults say they are not part of a traditional religious denomination, new data from the Pew Research Center show, evidence of an unprecedented reshuffling of Americans’ spiritual identities that is shaking up fields from charity to politics.

But despite their nickname, the “nones” are far from godless. Many pray, believe in God and have regular spiritual routines.

Their numbers have increased dramatically over the past two decades, according to the study released Tuesday. About 19.6 percent of Americans say they are “nothing in particular,” agnostic or atheist, up from about 8 percent in 1990. One-third of adults under 30 say the same. Pew offered people a list of more than a dozen possible affiliations, including “Protestant,” “Catholic,” “something else” and “nothing in particular.”

*** end quote ***

This has tremendous import to pro-lifers and First Amendment rights.

Very hard to connect moral arguments if one has no moral center.

In some ways the organized Churches share some of the blame as they fell under the spell of the Gooferment. 501c3 tax deduction is the path to how they are controlled.

And, what about the children? They are getting their "religious" education in the Gooferment Skrules. They learn "Secular Progressive", Social Justice, Earth worship, and that the Gooferment is the new "mother" and "father" to them.
