POSITRACTION: All life is precious to Him



Dog Leads Owner To Newborn Baby Abandoned On Roadside
By Barbara Diamond

*** begin quote ***

While out for their morning walk, a dog named Bobby persuaded his owner, Jeff, to take a different route than normal. Suddenly, the black lab started pulling hard on his leash, yanking Jeff down the dirt road in a particular direction. As Bobby feverishly sniffed toward a patch of grass,  Jeff saw what he thought was either a rock or a baby rabbit on the ground. Moments later, he realized the shocking truth: Bobby led Jeff to a newborn baby with her umbilical cord still attached.

*** and ***

Jeff believes it was divine intervention that led Bobby to the baby. “I tend to think it was God led us this way, that all life is precious to Him,” he says.

*** end quote ***

“Birds of the air … …” comes to mind.

I hope that if I’m ever able to save someone, I can.

I pray for the Mom because she must have been in a terrible place to do this.

I hope that “We, The Sheeple” can see that ALL LIVES MATTER — black, blue, and even those from Fordham.

JNEWS: Jara, Josť Martin [MC????] Board President at Leake & Watts



Josť Martin Jara Elected Board President at Leake & Watts

A Resident of Williamsburg, Brooklyn, Jara Exemplifies the New Face of Philanthropy in New York City.

Yonkers, NY, October 18, 2015 --(PR.com)-- Josť Martin Jara, Esq., has been elected president of the board of directors at Leake & Watts, an award-winning New York City nonprofit human services agency. Mr. Jara, who is a principal and national practice leader of multiemployer plans at Buck Consultants, LLC, A Xerox Company, joined the board in 2011, having learned about Leake & Watts through BoardServeNYC, a United Way resource that connects nonprofits with candidates ready to join a board. Since then, he has seen Leake & Watts nearly double in size, and he expects its rapid growth to continue during his two-year term.

Leake & Watts Executive Director Alan Mucatel remarked that Mr. Jara exemplifies the new face of philanthropy in New York City. “The current generation of supporters approach their volunteer work with the same intensity that they approach business,” Mr. Mucatel said. “They understand the need for speed and strategic thinking as the world evolves, and that if a nonprofit agency isn’t growing, then it is falling behind. Josť and our other board members are comfortable with change, and they help ensure that our agency can grow quickly and responsibly.”

Mr. Jara said he was attracted to the agency because of its work with at-risk populations. “Leake & Watts has used and will continue to use its core expertise to expand into new areas where human services support is greatly needed by children, adults, and families in the Greater New York area,” explained Mr. Jara who has an older sister with developmental disabilities. Leake & Watts’ dedication to helping individuals such as his sister succeed struck a chord with him. “These individuals need assistance, because they are not capable of doing it all themselves,” he said. “Providing them with educational support helps open doors for them.”

A resident of Williamsburg, Brooklyn, he added that he is firmly committed to Leake & Watts’ mission. “I am and my fellow board members are dedicated to continually growing and strengthening this remarkable agency, and helping at-risk populations through education, therapeutic support, and vocational training.”

Mr. Jara graduated with a BS in Managerial Science from Manhattan College and was awarded a JD in Law from Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law, Yeshiva University. He obtained an LLM and certificate in employee benefits law from Georgetown University Law Center. In addition to his service to Leake & Watts, Mr. Jara is a member of the board and chairman of the HR committee at The Center for Family Support, and is a member and recording secretary of the Cardozo Alumni Association’s Executive Committee. Cardozo Law School has honored him twice by presenting him with the BALLSA Alumnus of the Year Award and the Cardozo Alumni Association’s Volunteer Service Award.

[JR: Attendees are recognized on the theory "if it's important to some to mention in an obit, then we can spare a few prayers". Perhaps, the time at MC was both formative and important to our comrade. And, imho, WW2 interrupted many plans. A good many went never came back and maybe those that did had new priorities.]

Eugene Sweeney

SWEENEY Eugene W., MD, prominent dermatologist, of Tenably, NJ, passed away peacefully on October 21, 2015 at Villa Marie Claire Hospice in Saddle River surrounded by his beloved family, after a series of strokes.

He was born on May 25, 1934, to the late John and Marian (Leonard) Sweeney of Breezy Point, NY and was educated in New York City. He graduated from St. Augustine Diocesan High School in Brooklyn and completed his undergraduate work at Manhattan College. He received his medical degree at New York Medical College, completed a rotating internship at Brooklyn Hospital Center and did a residency and fellowship at New York Presbyterian Hospital Columbia Campus and St. Luke's Hospital Center. He pursued further study in Berlin, Dublin, Oxford and Plymouth, England.

He was elected a Fellow of the Royal College of Medicine while in Oxford. He belonged to the American Board of Dermatology and practiced dermatology for 55 years.

He served two tours of active duty in the United States Navy and after decades in the reserves he retired with the rank of Captain.

Dr. Sweeney had a private practice in Teaneck for over 40 years and was past Chief of Dermatology at Holy Name Hospital. In addition, he derived great pleasure and satisfaction from teaching residents as Associate Clinical Professor of Dermatology at the Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center. He had a very large presence and was a mentor to many, quick to dispense fatherly advice. He concluded his career at Metropolitan Dermatology.

An outstanding doctor beloved by his patients, Dr. Sweeney was also an avid reader and had deep knowledge in many areas, including art, languages, politics, finance and nature. He was committed to the mission of the Boy Scouts of America by being heavily involved in Troop 86, Tenafly.

He loved to travel, particularly to international destinations. He was a passionate golfer, accomplished gardener, stock trader, pianist, joke and storyteller and photographer. He always had a camera in his hand and chronicled all family events but enjoyed posing for photos especially with his beloved grandchildren. He loved celebrations of any kind with family and friends and never failed to savor a good piece of cake. He was proud to say hello and numerous phrases to all his patients in their native languages.

He attended both Our Lady of Mount Carmel and the Society of African Missions (SMA Fathers) in Tenafly.

While serving in the Navy he met the love of his life Dianne (Card) Sweeney at a USO dance and the two were married on October 24, 1964. He passed away days before their 51st wedding anniversary.

Above all he cherished his family. Survivors include his wife Dianne of Tenafly; son, Edward, wife Tina and his son Kevin of Phoenix, AZ; son, Sean and his wife Erin and their children Gabriel and Cira of Scituate, MA; two sisters-in-law and a host of nieces, nephews and other relatives, patients, students and friends. He was preceded in death by his parents, John and Marian Sweeney; and his brothers Leonard and William Sweeney.

The family will receive friends on Monday from 2-4 and 7-9 PM at Barrett Funeral Home, 148 Dean Drive, Tenafly. A Liturgy of Christian Burial will be said at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church Tenafly on Tuesday at 10 AM. Burial will follow in the Mount Carmel Cemetery Tenafly.

How One Agent Has Utilized NBA D-League In Unique Way To Realize Success
By Keith Schlosser  @KeithBSchlosser on Oct 23, 2015, 1:37p

*** begin quote ***

RBA Sports was formed in 2009. Bass had recently helped a local high school player from his hometown of Roslyn, New York, George Beamon, secure a scholarship to Manhattan College.

*** and ***

Their first player event was held at Draddy Gymnasium in Riverdale, and among the scouts in attendance that day was Chris Alpert, who was there representing the NBA Development League.

*** and ***

Needless to say, RBA has come a long way from its humble beginnings at Draddy Gym and the NBA Development League continues to play a key role in their progress.

In the aftermath of more mass shootings, Bill Whittle tackles gun control, rebutting progressives call for stricter measures.

# - # - # - # - #

In this six minute video, Bill Whittle, of the Virtual President fame, destroys the “gun control” myth.

I personally think that the SSRI drugs have a role as well.

And the Second Amendment is about preventing tyranny by the Gooferment.

Lest anyone think “it can’t happen here”, think again. Japanese internment. The Indian Genocide. The war on the black family by the Gooferment Welfare state and Planned Parenthood.

And, lest others think “it can’t help”, think again. A bunch of Afgan third world cave dwellers have been kicking ass for a while — first the Brits, then the Russians, and now the USA.

"And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand? . . ." --- Alexander Solzhenitsyn
