POSITRACTION: Our "diminished" perceptions and capabilities



The Human Planet | Psychology

The astonishing vision and focus of Namibia’s nomads

The Himba people of Namibia can see fine details and ignore distraction much better than most other human beings – a finding that may reflect the many ways that modern life is changing our minds and abilities.

David Robson7 March 2017

*** begin quote ***

The first hints that modernisation could change our vision came from the Victorian anthropologist WHR Rivers, who explored the islands of the Torres Strait, between Australia and Papua New Guinea at the turn of the 20th Century. As he met the locals, he offered them various sensory tests, including the following phenomenon, known as the Muller-Lyer illusion. Take a look at the two lines below left, and try it for yourself:

*** end quote ***

A stunning — to me at least — revelation.

I’ve long thought about paradigms and memes.

(Paradigms can be defined as a philosophical or theoretical framework of any kind. Memes can be defined as a unit of cultural transmission, imitation, and | or replication.)

So paradigms are our framework around perceptions and memes are the ideas that we exchange.

This striking development is around our perceptions and capabilities.

The Namibian nomad’s vision and focus is so precise that they can identify an individual by its pattern. Clearly “we” can’t do that in the “modern world”; “we” have to use ear tags.

Obviously, that’s a stunning adaption. And the article goes on to say that “… … even very short day trips to Opuwo seemed to have had a lasting impact their perception … …”!


What an adaptive capability humanity has.

But in our adaptability, what have we lost.

This article changes how I “see” the world.

I’m not sure it’s for the better.

COMMENT: Kuhn, Rob (MC1973) "when wealth is distributed"


John ...

The Pope isn't discussing (big-E) economics, he's discussing morality ... and (small-c) catholic morality at that. My gut tells me that Economics is chiefly misunderstood by economists. It may only be the "dismal" science (if, indeed, a science at all) due to the quality of its scientists.

Tell me this: Do the so-called "laws" of supply and demand function precisely the same when wealth is distributed more or less equally across the population and when it is largely controlled by a small percentage of people?

It seems logical that "demand" is influenced by ability to pay, which is not equal in both the scenarios I mention.

Of course, I AM factually ignorant of basic economic principles, but I have got a moral foundation, built long ago out of (large-C) Catholicism. I guess the church finds itself in a position analogous to that of the English language, with descriptivism (based on how it's used = popular morality in religion) and prescriptivism (analysis of how it should be used = dogma in religion ).

Oddly, I tend to be prescriptivist with language, but -- apparently -- descriptivist with whatever vestiges of Catholicism I am still making use of.


Kuhn, Rob (MC1973)

# - # - # - # - #

Well, Rob, first let me cite my credentials.

Remember the sources of my education! I’m just a fat old white guy retired injineer who'd now a poor old senior citizen on a fixed income with:
* Law "degree" from watching Judge Judy;
* Medical "degree" from watching Doctor Phil;
* Building "degree" from watching "Holmes on Homes";
* Investing "degree" from reading about Bernie Made-off;
* Finance "degree"from listening to Ric Edelman;
* Learned to sensitively manage Human Resources from watching Chef Ramsey; and
* Learned about creating loving / caring human relationships from studying the movie roles of Gunny Ronald Lee Ermey

Notice there is no “credential” about economics, if there was it’d be:

“Economics “degree” from reading Murry Rothfarb, Tom Woods, Bob Murphy, and Lew Rockwell. Also following the Ludwig von Mises Institute. I’m probably the only fat old white guy injineer who’s read “Man, Economy, and State”. That thanks to the USAf confining me in San Angelo Texas for a few months.

I’ll take a swing at your question if it’s not rhetorical. (Hence the length.)

I don’t believe “wealth is distributed”. I do believe that we observe the “distribution of wealth” as we would snowfall. That distribution is directly attributable to the human effort to satisfy our fellow humans (i.e., I satisfy you and you give me “certificates of appreciation”. The sum of those you’re calling “wealth”.)

You’re positing that the “Law of Supply and Demand” varies based on the “distribution”. I don’t think that it does, because I don’t believe in your “distribution” theory.

Now you’ve exceeded my meager abilities. And, I’ll pass this along to some heavier hitters than me.

I do think the Pope is talking “economics” and not “morality”. But again that’s an opinion.

JOBIT: Dunphy, Sheila [MC1972 RIP] on 2017-Mar-22



CATHERINE MULLALLY: Doing little things with a big heart

A life lived with such a joyful spirit, and such kindness and care for all
Published on March 22, 2017

Some people in our lives go quietly about doing a lot of good. They are unassuming, modest, and humble. Such a person was Sheila Dunphy, a pioneer in lay pastoral ministry in the Diocese of Charlottetown, who passed away recently after living with cancer for many years.

It is true that Sheila would be the last to paint herself as larger than life. But many Islanders, with fondness and gratitude, would be pleased to recall this kind, caring, loving person and all the good that she did.

In her ministry, Sheila visited the sick, taught catechism and trained catechism teachers, prepared children and adults to receive the sacraments, led groups to console the grieving, supported women’s shelters and worked at the Soup Kitchen. She was a spiritual guide, a prayer companion, and a leader in scripture study. She worked with people inside and outside of the church.

*** and ***

Fr. Keith Kennific, another former pastor at St. Pius X, recalls: “Sheila had many gifts. She was both well-educated in religious education and theology, with a graduate degree from Manhattan College in New York City, in addition to formal training in Ignatian spirituality. She possessed a profound and simple faith, which she unabashedly shared with everyone.”

*** end quote ***

- Catherine Mullally is a parishioner of St. Pius X Parish, Charlottetown.

JHQ: Alma Mater President opposes the Excelsior Scholarship


Dear Manhattan College Alumni,

As you may know, the Governor of New York has made a proposal to offer “free tuition” for qualifying students with a household income of $100,000 or less, rising to $125,000 by 2019. Known as the Excelsior Scholarship, the proposal would cover tuition costs for eligible students who enroll in a state (SUNY) or city (CUNY) college or university.

While we applaud all efforts to assure that students from across the economic spectrum will have access to the best possible higher education experience, we believe that the unintended consequences of the Governor’s Excelsior plan will actually harm the very students it seeks to help.

It is doubtful that the public system could accommodate the influx of students that could result from the plan—at least not without huge increases in SUNY and CUNY budgets or significant stresses on educational quality. At the same time, experts warn that the promise of the plan could entice students who would be better served at private colleges away from those options, potentially undermining institutions that depend on enrollment to maintain quality.

New York has long fostered a partnership between its public and private institutions, recognizing that students benefit from the rich array of choice that our colleges and universities provide. New York’s private, nonprofit colleges and universities do an excellent job educating a wide variety of students and preparing them for life after graduation.

At Manhattan College, for example, one third of our students, year after year, are “first-generation” college students, many of them coming from families who depend on federal and state support to realize their dream of a better future for their children. We believe that increasing support for all families with financial need is the best way to achieve the result that we all desire: providing access, supporting quality education, and broadening the pathway to success for all New Yorkers.

Now is the time for those who value the work of New York’s private colleges and universities to have their voices heard. For more information, and for assistance in writing to your elected officials, please visit https://www.limitlesslearningny.org. We need as many people as possible to urge the legislature to vote against the Excelsior plan and to develop a plan that supports all of New York’s college students, whether they choose a public or a private institution.

Thank you for your assistance in this important matter.

JOBIT: O'Connor, William "Bill" Francis [MC1960 RIP] on 2017-Mar-20



William Francis O'Connor

William "Bill" Francis O'Connor, 86, died Monday, March 20, 2017 at the Avon Health Center in Avon, CT.

He leaves his wife of 60 years, Geraldine (Scanlan) of Canton, CT; son Neil and his wife Cathy of Raleigh, NC; daughter Caron O'Connor of Unionville, CT; son Brian of Unionville, CT; son Terence and his two children Nicholas and John of Houston, TX; brothers Thomas and his wife Arlene of Yonkers NY, Dennis and his wife Agnes of Crescent City, CA, and Robert O'Connor of Oklahoma City, OK.

Born and raised in Yonkers, NY, the son of Mortimer and Irene (Kurcz) O'Connor, he was one of six boys. He enlisted in the Marine Corps and spent three years as a Drill Sergeant and Meteorologist during the Korean War. Upon returning to Yonkers he worked a variety of jobs but when he met his future wife Geraldine everything changed. They married and children soon followed, all the while he attended Manhattan College in the Bronx, NY at night earning a Business Administration degree in 1960.

He began his professional career as a Contracts Administrator for national defense contracts in Colorado, then he moved his family to Granby, CT where he began work for Hamilton Standard in Windsor Locks, CT developing life support systems for NASA. Soon thereafter he moved to Simsbury, CT and began working for Colt Industries managing weapons contracts for the US and foreign governments. Another industry change brought him to New York City where he worked at Chemical Construction Corporation building the first Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) plant in Arzew, Algeria.

His wanderlust for travel and experiencing other cultures was cultivated over many years traveling to France and Algeria. In 1977 he joined Mobil Oil in Princeton, NJ as a Contracts expert. Later that year he accepted an assignment in Norway constructing offshore oil platforms. Three years later he returned to the USA and continued his career at Mobil in various capacities and locations until his retirement in 1993.

In retirement he and his wife lived in Manchester Center, VT and Wrightsville Beach, NC before settling in Farmington and Canton, CT.

He took pride in his professional career while remaining an honorable and trusted husband and father. He enjoyed kayaking and hiking. His cutting wit, love of banter with strangers, and passion for reading were present till his death.

A Funeral Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 10:00 AM on Saturday, March 25 at St. Patrick Church in Collinsville CT. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be given to St. Patrick Church, 50 Church Street, Collinsville, CT 06019. The family of William wishes to extend their sincere thanks to the nurses, aides and staff of the Avon Health Center where he spent his last months.

Side note.....my sister graduated from what was then Keene State College. Enjoy the beautiful New England days and nights. Regards.......Terry O'Connor

[JR: Appreciate the kind words. And, yes, I’ve been unofficially at this modest effort for a long time. Ever since my Compu$erve days. Hopefully, some one will pick it up when I can’t do it any more. Sorry about your Dad and we’re all praying for your family.]

Sung to the Air Garryowen.

In Riverdale upon the height
it's there you'll find the green and white
The Jaspers are the town's delight
Their victories, they are storied

When on the court or in the field
No Jasper team shall ever yield
our pride is fierce, our hearts are steeled
On Jaspers, on to glory

For Brother Jasper we are named
a humble man of timeless fame
and in our hearts his lessons framed
will write our gallant story


Brave Jaspers, raise your voices high
to move the earth and shake the sky
for old Manhattan, do or die
On Jaspers, on to glory!

JNEWS: Halen, Alexander [MC2012] SEM Manager at Dow Jones



“Congratulate Alexander Halen, MS for starting a new position as SEM Manager at Dow Jones Previously SEM Manager at Mercury Media”


Halen, Alexander [MC2012]
SEM Manager at Dow Jones
Hoboken, New Jersey 

I have my BS in Business Administration with a major in Marketing and minors in Psychology and Computer Information Systems from Manhattan College, Magna Cum Laude. I then enrolled at New Jersey Institute of Technology for an MS in Business and Information Systems with a specialization in Business Decision Making. Enjoying both worlds of business and computing, I was looking for a field that would marry the two seamlessly.

The search marketing/PPC industry allows me to be analytical and use data to make informed decisions while maintaining creativity.

ENDNOTE: The politically correct AP

Imagine my surprise I knew that Maryland’s loss had given me the victory over my “old” friend in our “bracketology for a beer” bet.

Could we both have missed an overtime or a do over.

The AP is so politically correct that they didn’t report in the headline that it's the Womens' NCAA.


They don’t seem to know how to write headlines to differentiate men and women as well as NCAA and NIT.
