POSITRACTION: Here's down and dirty in “police work”



Officer Becomes Hero to Neighborhood Kids After Sitting Down to Play With Girls Who ‘Were Afraid of Cops’
By McKinley Corbley - Feb 22, 2019

*** begin quote ***

Corporal C.B. Fleming may not run around the city wearing a cape and mask, but the neighborhood kids still call him Batman.

The 42-year-old police officer is something of a local celebrity in South Hill, Virginia. He was given the affectionate nickname after he spent an afternoon ensuring that a group of children felt safe following a gas leak.

Fleming was just one of the emergency crew members who arrived at Iesha Roper-Boswell’s home in response to the dispatch call last week. Once the house was deemed safe, he started chatting with Roper-Boswell.

As they talked, the 28-year-old mother mentioned to Fleming that her daughter, niece, and fellow neighborhood kids were afraid of cops.

She was then stunned when – shortly after their conversation – she saw Fleming lying in the grass so he could play with the children. Not only that, the kids were happy to have another playmate, regardless of his uniform.

*** end quote ***

Now that’s getting down and dirty in “police work”.

For every “bad cop”, good Police Officers have to work a hundred times harder to make up for it.

Hope he’s recognized for this good deed.

The Milliner of Cold Spring
Beacon hatmaker opens shop on Main Street
By Alison Rooney on April 19, 2019No Comment

It’s never “Here’s your hat, what’s your hurry?” at Wynono & Company, the new Cold Spring millinery that will open on Main Street just in time for Easter.

In fact, it will be the opposite, says Melanie Leonard, a Beacon resident who hopes her stock of handmade hats and colorful vintage clothing will invite lingering. “I don’t want anyone to feel intimidated about coming in,” she says.

Years ago, Leonard felt intimidated about making hats, but she became friendly with a milliner, Ashley Ruprecht, who invited Leonard to her studio and wound up training her in the classic techniques.

After “falling in love with the process,” Leonard studied with Anya Caliendo, who does couture millinery. “By then I was able to make a good hat but not really express myself,” she recalls. “Anya is a strong Russian woman. She told me when things were awful, which was perfect for me! Each week you made a new style. Anya taught me true technique with her assessment of ‘nyet’ after hours of handstitching! I learned patience. Now I understand that it’s how someone feels in the hat that matters, and that I shouldn’t criticize myself if one stitch isn’t perfect.”

None of this was on Leonard’s mind growing up in Londonderry, New Hampshire, where her sartorial style was atypical. “I can truthfully say I dressed differently,” she says. “At 10 I walked around like a hippie, wearing big pants, colorful shirts. My mom would buy me Gap jeans, then we would cut parts of them out and put different fabric in.”

As a teenager Leonard recalls always being drawn to New York City; she would take a 6 a.m. bus from New Hampshire to wander around Central Park, the East Village and walk over the Brooklyn Bridge, then catch the 10 p.m. train home.

She attended college in the city, studying sociology and criminal justice at Manhattan College, and two years ago made the move from Brooklyn to Beacon with her husband, Stu McLaughlin, who is a creative director at a marketing agency and a photographer. They were joined a year ago by daughter Marlo. Leonard says she finds Beacon a “nice blend of my New Hampshire and Brooklyn backgrounds.”

to Fjohn68

Which "we" is going to separate business from the state?

[JR: It’ll be “We, The Sheeple” when they don’t get their promised “benefits” because the Gooferment can no longer print money.  Eventually, all fiat currencies fall to zero. Some faster than others (i.e., Zimbabwe, Venezuela) and some slower (i.e., the Roman empire; the Ottoman empire).  At some point, the world will stop accepting “dollars” for products.  That’s what got Saddam and Gaddafi killed — they wanted to be paid in gold for their oil.  You haven’t heard much about the “golden dinar” because they realized that was a good way to bring down the wrath of the USA by messing with their monopoly on “dollars”.  But like all Ponzi schemes and games of musical chairs, they end when the music stops. And "the rubes” are getting wise to the scam.  One ugly chicken is coming home to roost!  IMHO]

HomeNewsFirst Female President of the International Federation of Catholic Universities to Speak at 143rd University Commencement
April 25, 2019 Jack Goldman News, On Campus, Top Story

*** begin quote ***

Boston College has announced that Isabel Capeloa Gil will speak at the University’s 143rd Commencement Exercises, which are taking place on May 20. Gil, the first female president of the International Federation of Catholic Universities (IFCU), will receive an honorary Doctor of Humane Letters degree, alongside fellow degree recipients Dan Bunch, BC ’79; Rev. Robert D. Farrell, S.J., GMCAS ’58, STM ’65; Thomas D. O’Malley, a former BC trustee; and Marilynne Robinson, a Pulitzer Prize-winning author.

*** and ***

O’Malley, who hails from Staten Island and has long been a benefactor of BC—as well as other non-profit organizations—established the O’Malley Family Athletic Endowed Scholarship Fund for BC student-athletes in 2015 through his family foundation and will receive an honorary Doctor of Business Administration degree. He served as the vice chair of Salomon Brothers, an investment banking firm, and he has also served as a senior executive in the independent energy business, according to the release.

O’Malley put himself through college by working as a taxi and school bus driver, a cafeteria worker, and a lifeguard. He and his wife, Mary Alice, are the most generous donors in Manhattan College’s history—its school of business was renamed in their honor and their name is also on the university’s library, according to the release. O’Malley graduated from the institution in 1963 and chaired its board of trustees for seven years while serving on the board for 15.

His family has also funded Trinity Catholic High School scholarships for children of Stamford, Conn., police officers, firefighters, and nurses, all while supporting the Greenwich Hospital in Connecticut as well, according to the release.

JFACEBOOK: Steinberg, Robert "Bob Stei" (MC1993) shares a chapter



I am near the end of the rough draft! The support has been great! Please stop by my page if you can- and here is one of the happier chapters to give feedback on!

Sports was always an escape for me. I grew up a Philadelphia sports fan and saw few championships. I also attended a lot of Baltimore Orioles’ games. Like music and writing, I could leave myself for a few hours and enjoy all the action and strategy of sports. I attended most home Manhattan College basketball games and even a few road games. After an impressive season in March 1992, the Jaspers were headed to nearby Rutgers in Northern New Jersey in the first round of the NIT tournament. The school offered tickets and a bus ride for people interested. I jumped right on it.

The bus ride off to New Jersey was loud and full of energy! Larry was in full force, leading all the cheers and festivities. I swear I thought he was going to have a heart attack the way he was screaming and carrying on. We were all getting pumped up for the tournament, and getting ready to enter enemy territory.

All of us were seated together on bleachers on the left side of the arena. The Rutgers fans were very calm and collective, while we were as vocal as can be. The game was pretty close with Rutgers maintaining a lead most of the game.

Rutgers controlled most of the second half, leading the Jaspers by eight points with just four minutes left to play. Manhattan started to come back and had the ball trailing by a point with the clock running out. One of my classmates threw a layup right before the double zeros hit.It was like watching a movie as the ball circled around the rim a few times, before finding a home in the net! A true sports miracle!

After it happened, the home fans froze and were dead quiet in shock. On the other hand,we caused quite a ruckus! We were all hugging each other and screaming. Then, we all somehow got on the court! We were pointing the finger at the shocked people left in the stands chanting, “We are MC!”

The bus ride back to campus was a party! We all headed to The Terminal to watch the highlights on the evening news. We all toasted each other and chanted the whole night! In my many years watching sports, I never saw a miracle happen up and close like that in person.

JFOUND: Athanasidy, Patrice Liquori (MC1988) quote in an obit



The Star-Ledger Obituaries
Anne Buckley
1931 - 2019

Anne lived a rich and full life with people, books, writings, pets, and a home she loved. She leaves behind friends that she had since childhood and through all the stages of her life. Anne was adventurous and fun and had a great wit and laugh. She was a wonderful friend and daughter. She loved travel, camping with her parents and friends, and her days at the beach.

Her life included meeting St. Mother Teresa of Calcutta, St. Pope John Paul II, Cardinals, and other famous people, but it was talking to and writing about people in her weekly editorial column that she most enjoyed - learning about the lives of others.

Anne was predeceased by her parents, William and Kathryn Buckley and her aunts and uncles. She enjoyed her last years staying in her home with the help of two wonderful aides, Nancy and Rodeline, and her friends.

The following is her obituary as it appears in Catholic New York:

Anne M. Buckley, who served as editor in chief of Catholic New York from 1991 to 2000 and had been one of the founders of the archdiocesan newspaper a decade earlier, died April 23. She was 87.

Ms. Buckley, along with Gerald M. Costello, the founding editor in chief, and Arthur McKenna, the general manager, were the team that established Catholic New York under Cardinal Terence Cooke in 1981.

During the next two decades, first as managing editor and then as editor in chief, Ms. Buckley helped to establish Catholic New York as the standard bearer among Catholic diocesan weeklies in the United States.

At her retirement in late 2000, Ms. Buckley said she found it rewarding to be part of a newspaper well-received from the start "by its readers and its peers in the Catholic and general press, a fact that enhanced the influence of the Church and contributed to its mission of evangelization."

"The job never lost its excitement," Ms. Buckley said at the time. "I will look back on it all with a measure of satisfaction."

In 2001, Ms. Buckley received the Catholic Press Association's highest honor, the St. Francis de Sales Award, which she called "a great honor and a beautiful crown to my career." Her award nomination noted she had made "many personal sacrifices to assure that Catholic New York remained a flagship paper for the Catholic press."

Ms. Buckley, ever the editor, said the first-place honors for general excellence and other prizes CNY took home in the CPA journalism competition that year were "even more precious because they represent the team effort that has gone into making Catholic New York the top diocesan paper in the country."

She was a "lifer" in the Catholic Press, having served on the staff of The Advocate, newspaper of the Archdiocese of Newark, for 29 years, beginning as a reporter right out of college and rising to managing editor, before coming to Catholic New York.

She was known for an elegant writing style most commonly evidenced in her Editor's Report columns, which were regularly cited for distinction as well as being popular with CNY readers.

Her service as editor in chief fell almost entirely during Cardinal John O'Connor's tenure as Archbishop of New York.

In a column about the cardinal, written at the time of his 80th birthday in January 2000, just months before his death that May, Ms. Buckley captured him this way:

"Cardinal O'Connor has looked for the best in all of us. It's not always easy to do that kind of job. But those of whom he has expected much are those who have grown to love him most. It showed during the 80th birthday celebrations."

The column was headlined, "New York Loves a Winner," a phrase she undoubtedly selected. Ms. Buckley was an exacting editor,
always searching for a better way to tell the story, another question to ask or one more lead to pursue.

Patrice Liquori, who interned under Ms. Buckley in the summers of 1986-1987, during her student days at Manhattan College, and later was a freelance writer for Catholic New York, called her mentor's death "a true loss."

"I can't think of a time in my professional working life when Anne wasn't a part of it," Ms. Liquori said. "She was tough, but fair."

In 1994, the Ladies of Charity of the Archdiocese of New York honored Ms. Buckley with their St. Louise de Marillac award. Cardinal O'Connor, writing in his own "From My Viewpoint" column in CNY, said Ms. Buckley's designation "was no mean feat for any newspaper editor in chief, secular or religious."

The cardinal went on to say that he did not universally agree with CNY's editorials, or its news judgment. However, his overall assessment was that Ms. Buckley published "a top-drawer, interesting, readable, sometimes provocative, always thoroughly Catholic newspaper."

He ended by citing Ms. Buckley as a "true professional, true Catholic, true newswoman."

She served as President of the Catholic Institute of the Press of New Jersey and Director of its journalism School for High School Students. In 1999 Caldwell University awarded her an Honorary Degree in Humane Letters, in 1967 the Alumna of the Year Award and in 1987 the coveted Veritas Award.

Immaculate Conception High School, her Alma Mater, inducted her into their Hall of Fame.

Ms. Buckley also served on the Board of Directors of The Christophers and the Advisory of the Catholic Spirit of the Diocese of Metuchen.

In lieu of flowers, donations to St. John's Feed the Hungry Program or St. Hubert Animal Welfare Center would be appreciated.

For many years, Ms. Buckley was the caregiver to her elderly mother, Kathryn, who predeceased her.

JOBIT: Galluzzo, Edward J. [MC1956 RIP] 2019-Apr-17



Edward J. Galluzzo
1934 - 2019 Obituary

Mount Pleasant, SC - Edward J. Galluzzo, 84, originally from Ossining, NY, passed away peacefully on April 17, 2019 in Mount Pleasant, SC.

Edward, son of the late James and Grace Galluzzo, was born in Ossining, NY on October 22, 1934. After graduating from Ossining High School, Edward completed a 4-year degree at Manhattan College in 1956 and eventually became the President and owner of J.V. Galluzzo, Inc., the construction company founded by his father, James Vincent Galluzzo.

Edward is pre-deceased by his wife, Janet, who passed on March 25, 2017 (after a long battle with Multiple Sclerosis) from metastatic lung cancer.

After college, Edward (known to most of his family and friends as Ed or Eddie), served in and was honorably discharged from the US Army. Ed met Janet (then Janet Sichel from Briarcliff Manor, NY) in 1959, and they were married on October 29, 1960.

Ed and Janet raised their family and lived in Ossining until they moved to Stamford, CT in 1996. After wintering in Ft. Lauderdale, they lived there full time from 2011, until Janet's passing in 2017. A year later, Ed moved to Mt. Pleasant, SC, the home of his son James, daughter-in-law Emily, and grandsons, Ned and Jake. Ed is also survived by his daughter Donna and her wife, Lisa Gorney, of Portland, Maine.

Ed was a proud member of the Bricklayers Local 5 NY and Bricklayers International. He and Janet loved dinners out and enjoyed putting their feet in the sand in Puerto Rico, Acapulco and Bermuda. Edward was an avid golfer and always enjoyed a glass of chilled red wine. Both he and Janet were passionate NY Yankees fans, celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary in 2010 by attending a Yankees game with their immediate family.

Because he hadn't lived in South Carolina for very long, his family has decided not to hold any services at this time. In lieu of donations or other remembrances, Edward's children would ask his friends and family to remember him through enjoying a round of golf, a dinner out or a glass of wine with loved ones.

Expressions of sympathy may be viewed or submitted to www.mcalister-smith.com.

Arrangements entrusted to McAlister-Smith Funeral Home, Mt Pleasant, 1520 Rifle Range Road Mt Pleasant, South Carolina, 29464, 843-884-3833.

JOBIT: Mulrane, James Patrick [MC1963 RIP] 2019-Apr-23





James Patrick Mulrane, 77, of Dunwoody, Georgia, died April 23, 2019.

Jim was a proud New Yorker, born and raised in Washington Heights. He was the youngest of three children, raised by Bridget and Owen Mulrane, both Irish immigrants. He graduated from Manhattan Prep and then Manhattan College.

It was in New York that Jim met his wife of 49 years, Eileen Cunningham. The couple then relocated to Dunwoody via Jim's job with IBM. Jim and Eileen raised their two children, Kathy and Ken, in Dunwoody.

Jim made several friends through his newfound passion tennis. But Jim had always been a sports fan, cheering on his beloved Rangers, as well as the New York football and baseball Giants. He even grew to love the Atlanta Braves and Falcons, officially transplanting to Atlanta.

Jim was a two-time cancer survivor. He admirably faced those battles with a strong determination and a positive attitude.

In retirement, Jim enjoyed spending time with his growing family. He was constantly reading in order to expand his knowledge of world events and trivia, often using this information for friendly competition during episodes of Jeopardy.

The Mulrane family spent a beautiful Easter weekend together before Jim's passing. Jim is survived by his devoted wife, Eileen; son, Ken; daughter, Kathy and her husband, Chris; granddaughters, Sophie and Caroline; and sister, Ann. The Funeral Mass will be Monday, April 29, 2019, at 10:30 a.m. at St. Jude the Apostle Catholic Church. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the American Heart Association or the Aflac Cancer and Blood Disorders Center of Children's Healthcare of Atlanta.

ENDNOTE: Innovation in addressing at refugee settlements in Uganda



How what3words is being used to address refugee settlements in Uganda

The Rhino Refugee Camp in Arua, Uganda is embracing new technology to make life easier for the people who live there. 3 word addresses provide every home, church, medical centre and mosque with a simple and accurate way for people to describe its location and find it easily.

*** begin quote ***

The concept of using tech advances and innovation to give people fast access to reliable modern systems is known as technology leapfrogging. It is increasingly seen as one of the most effective ways of driving positive progress in developing countries.

Sebit Martin, Co-Founder and Executive Director of the CDC commented, ‘In the most remote refugee camps, a person has little to say about a location, which at the same time is often confusing and changeable. Not to mention how frustrating it is for ambulance drivers to try and locate emergency cases in a fragile situation of health and often situations where the very lives of persons of concern are at stake. So we are delighted to partner with what3words to solve these and many other problems concerning addressing in the refugee camps in Arua District.’

‘Finally, we also desire to give refugees the dignity they deserve by improving their living conditions and make 3 word addresses not only an easy way of talking about locations but a better language of hope in the refugee camp.’

*** end quote ***

I had heard that Ford Motor Company was including it in their new vehicles in 2019.

It would seem that this could be useful for everyone when the technology supporting it is deployed. Street addresses are not always “good enough”.  Try being a first aid squad looking to help someone off the beaten track or even on some streets and roads where addresses are not obvious.  When I was living in Virginia, New Hampshire, and even the Pepuls Republik of Nu Jerzee “addresses” were not obvious because folks don’t display them. 

From “launch, imposed, rabble”.



Try it and then have it in your “toolkit” should you need it.
