POSITRACTION: Help from half-mile away


Treasure Coast Dog Helps Save Baby’s Life
Hound Leads Owner To Drowning Baby
POSTED: 6:59 pm EST December 16, 2009
UPDATED: 9:28 am EST December 17, 2009

*** begin quote ***

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. — A Treasure Coast dog is being hailed as a hero for helping to save a baby’s life this week.

Reyna Zurita said she had just walked into her Port St. Lucie home when her 2-year-old hound, Hunter, suddenly ran out the door.

“I run behind my dog because that’s for my kids and I don’t want to lose my dog, and I run behind” Zurita said in broken English. “I say, ‘What happened? Stop,’ but he never listen to me.”

Hunter ran for nearly half a mile and led Zurita to an infant who was lying on the ground after nearly drowning.

[JR: Great story. A lot of questions. BUT, (there is always a big butt), in my mind, what drew the dog to the baby over a half-mile away. (A flunked out dog for that matter. Gives hope to us low grade point injineers.) Our current thinking affords NO explanation. Perhaps an angel. “Birds of the air” comes to mind. Makes one wonder. Least it does me. Maybe one of our smarter fellow alums will have a better explanation?]

Top 100 Irish America’s Finest in Education
“To the extent that we are all educated and informed

*** begin quote ***

James J. Murphy

Jim Murphy teaches courses in Modern Irish Literature and Culture at Villanova University. Since its founding in 1842, Villanova has had a rich connection to Ireland. With a nod to that history and to his own personal background, Murphy initiated the university’s Irish Studies program in 1979.

Since that time he has nurtured and developed the program, which is now one of the oldest and largest undergraduate programs of its kind in the U.S.

Students study Ireland and Irish America from the interlocking perspectives of traditional academic disciplines and through courses taught by a visiting distinguished Irish writer-in-residence. In Ireland, the Villanova Center for Irish Studies is based at The National University, Galway, where students now study throughout the year.

The first of his family to receive a college education, Murphy went from St. Augustine’s HS in Brooklyn to Manhattan College (BA ‘62), Niagara University (MA ‘63) and then on to Temple University (Ph.D. ‘71).

Both of his parents emigrated in the 1920s – his mother Kathleen Sloyan from Ballyhaunis, Co. Mayo, and his father Patrick Murphy from Cloone, Co. Leitrim.

Jim says, “My work is a way to thank them and to reach back to the world that they left behind. Growing up in an Irish world in Brooklyn has been one of the great shaping experiences of my life.” He is working on a memoir based on his parents’ experiences. “For me, being Irish-American has given me two rich and complex worlds to explore.”

JHQ: Dr. Richard Satterlee VP For Student Life


January 11, 2010

Manhattan College Names Dr. Richard Satterlee As Next Vice President For Student Life

RIVERDALE, N.Y. – Dr. Richard Satterlee has been named the next vice president for student life at Manhattan College, effective July 1. Satterlee will replace Br. Robert Berger, who will step down from his position in June after nine years

Satterlee has served in the position of assistant vice president for student development at Loyola University of Maryland (formerly Loyola College of Maryland) since July 2001.

In his current role, Satterlee serves on the vice president’s senior student-affairs team, and has direct supervisory responsibility for a wide range of departments, including leadership and new student programs, student activities, recreational sports, and academic advising for varsity athletes.

Satterlee also has extensive experience in integrated learning communities, student judicial matters, crisis response, and facilities programming and planning, having served as his division’s coordinator for Loyola’s Fitness and Aquatics Center, its recent expansion of its student center and first-year residence halls, and its recently completed athletic complex. During his time at Loyola, he has demonstrated leadership in a broad range of areas, including strategic planning and personnel development.

“Dr. Satterlee is a strong and eloquent advocate of Catholic higher education and has firmly established himself at Loyola as a leader in developing a campus culture that is conducive to the education of the whole student – in mind, body and spirit,” says Dr. Brennan O’Donnell, president of Manhattan College.

Satterlee began his career as an English teacher at Taft High School in Lincoln City, Oregon, and has also served as an adjunct professor of education at Loyola since 2004. Prior to arriving at Loyola, he spent nearly seven years at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, rising from assistant director of intramural and recreational sports to director of the student recreation center. He moved to Loyola in February 1995 as director of recreational sports.

“I am extremely excited to join Manhattan College as the next vice president for student life,” says Satterlee. “I was so impressed with the powerful sense of community at Manhattan that I experienced when I visited with students, faculty and administration during the search process – a characteristic that I am certain finds its origins in the community’s shared Catholic, Lasallian heritage. I also believe that further enhancement of Manhattan’s student life program can be central to achieving its aspirations and I look forward to being a partner in this endeavor.”

An active member of several professional associations, including the National Association of Student Personnel Administrators, the Association for the Study of Higher Education, and the Center for Academic Integrity, Satterlee is a frequent presenter at professional conferences. This past November, he delivered “Exploring How Student Employment Affects the Academic and Co-curricular Choices of Sophomores” at the 16th National Conference on Students in Transition in Salt Lake City, Utah.

After receiving his bachelor’s degree in English from Occidental College in Los Angeles, Satterlee earned a Masters of education in college services administration from Oregon State University. He recently completed his Ph.D. in educational leadership at the University of Maryland in College Park.

JHQ: Dr. William Clyde MC EVP / Provost


January 11, 2010

Manhattan College Names Dr. William Clyde As Next Executive Vice President And Provost

RIVERDALE, N.Y. – Dr. William Clyde has been named the next executive vice president and provost of Manhattan College, effective July 1. Clyde will replace Dr. Weldon Jackson, who served Manhattan for 13 years before stepping down from his position at the end of 2009.

Since 2007, Clyde has served as vice president for academic affairs at Queens University, a private Presbyterian-affiliated institution located in Charlotte, North Carolina.

In his current role, Clyde has been instrumental in developing and implementing a major reorganization plan for Queens University’s academic units based on efficiency, clarity, and attractiveness to students. He has worked closely with the institution’s board of trustees, board of visitors, and boards of advisors while revitalizing Queens’ commitment to diversity and inclusion.

Clyde’s work in strengthening Queens University’s institutional effectiveness led to the creation of the university’s office of institutional research and assessment, the center for academic success, which emphasizes student support and retention, and the center for excellence in teaching and learning. In addition, he has worked to raise dramatically the level of available technology resources on campus, including online registration and hybrid courses.

“Dr. Clyde brings to Manhattan an impressive depth and breadth of experience, a strong record of accomplishment as an educator and administrator, and a reputation for creative thinking in response to complex challenges,” says Dr. Brennan O’Donnell, president of Manhattan College. “His dedication to mission is evident through his work in support of a broad program of community outreach, service-learning, and international development projects.”

Clyde began his career as an investment officer at Harris Trust and Savings Bank in Chicago before becoming vice president of investments at First National Bank of Chicago (now part of JP Morgan Chase), where he specialized in foreign exchange markets. He joined the faculty of Quinnipiac College (now Quinnipiac University) in 1990, and for seventeen years taught courses in financial management, corporate finance, and securities analysis, among other subjects, earning tenure there in 1995 and rising to the rank of full professor in 1998. From 1995 through 2007, he held a series of administrative appointments of increasing responsibility and complexity: program director, dean of academic technology, dean of the College of Professional Studies, and finally associate vice president for academic affairs.

After receiving his bachelor’s degree in economics and chemistry from DePauw University in Indiana, Clyde earned an M.S. in chemistry from New York University and a Ph.D. in economics from Edinburgh University in Scotland. He is the author of Using Technology in Teaching, published by Yale University Press in March 2005, as well as numerous academic papers, articles, and professional presentations.

JNews: Sacchetti, John [MC1993] IPI Fixed Income Desk Director


Investment Professionals, Inc. Names John Sacchetti Fixed Income Desk Director

Reflects IPI’s Steady Nationwide Growth and Focus on Fee-based Private Asset Management

SAN ANTONIO, Jan. 12 /PRNewswire/ — Leading bank broker-dealer Investment Professionals, Inc. (IPI) today named John Sacchetti Director of its Fixed Income Desk. The appointment reflects significant growth in the number of IPI’s bank investment programs over the past two years and expansion of its capabilities in retail private asset management and institutional trading.

Strong demand for fixed income securities makes them the largest asset class and a key driver of financial advisor GDC. Besides being a key component of a well-diversified portfolio, fixed income can play an important role in tax management strategies for high-net-worth investors. In addition, IPI’s expanded fee-based advisory services platform enables IPI financial consultants to offer bank investment program customers a range of cutting-edge managed account products in which fixed income figures prominently.

The naming of Mr. Sacchetti also reinforces a key strategy underlying IPI’s success in the bank investment program segment: close collaboration between the bank and IPI to harvest revenue opportunities throughout the relationship. Mr. Sacchetti’s fixed income credentials, proximity to the IPI financial advisor and inherent cost efficiencies compel bank treasury departments to explore the benefits of working with IPI in several areas.

Prior to joining IPI as a financial consultant in one of IPI’s largest bank programs, Mr. Sacchetti was a principal at Advisors Asset Management where as head of the National Accounts fixed income desk he grew the business by 75 percent from 2006 to 2008. He also worked as a financial advisor at Wachovia Securities and Merrill Lynch where he managed multi-million dollar client portfolios. Mr. Sacchetti holds a B.S. in Mathematics from Manhattan College. He is Board Certified to teach mathematics in the Alamo Community College District.

According to IPI President and Founder Scott Barnes, “Our Fixed Income group produced stellar results in the fourth quarter of 2009 for the firm, our financial consultants, clients and financial partners due in no small part to the addition of John Sacchetti to our team. I am confident that with John at the helm John, Brooks, Jennifer, Bryan and Randy will continue this type of performance into 2010. “

Mr. Sacchetti stated, “IPI has always had substantial capabilities in fixed income. Its advanced trading platform – IPIBonds.com – enables access to the inventory of 300 dealers and over 20,000 fixed income securities. I look forward to helping IPI stay at the forefront of its industry with competitive fixed income pricing and best-of-breed instruments for client portfolios.”

JObit: Reilly, Thomas [MC1952 RIP]


Family was enduring passion for Tom Reilly
By Mark Curnutte
January 14, 2010

*** begin quote ***

Thomas Reilly needed all of his accounting and tax skills away from his job at Procter & Gamble.

His eight sons all attended St. Xavier High School and went on to college. Six of them are doctors.

Mr. Reilly, 78, of College Hill died Sunday after suffering a stroke.

“The things he valued bore fruit,” said Kevin Reilly, of Mack, the seventh of the eight brothers. “His children are people with sizeable families who are trying to do things the right way.”

Mr. Reilly’s parents – the former Mary Burke of County Cork and Eugene Reilly of County Langford – were Irish immigrants who met on the boat to America.

A native of Staten Island, Mr. Reilly played basketball at Manhattan College and graduated in 1952 before marrying the former Agnes Paul, also of Staten Island, on Oct. 11, 1952. He served in the U.S. Army in Europe from 1952-54 and was overseas when his first son, Tom, was born.

After receiving his honorable discharge, Mr. Reilly went to work in Massachusetts for Procter & Gamble, which led him to Cincinnati in 1955.

He settled into job as accountant and comptroller at the P&G Ivorydale plant. He retired from Procter in 1991 after long working in the company’s state and local tax department.

“A major priority in his life was the education of his kids, and he provided for them the best education he could,” Kevin Reilly said.

When Tom and Agnes kept having sons, co-workers responded to his question about where to educate them with a quick answer: St. X in Finneytown. So the family moved to nearby College Hill.

The St. X education, said Kevin Reilly, is what helped lead six of the brothers into medical careers.

Business trips often had him traveling out-of-state. He worked long hours to support his wife and growing family. What time remained he spent with his family and volunteered on the St. Clare Catholic Church parish council and St. X High School finance department.

Mr. Reilly liked to golf – “a big hitter, not much finesse,” his son said.

Besides his wife and son Kevin, Mr. Reilly is survived by a brother, Jim, of Ashland, Mass.; sons Tom, of Akron, Jim, of Spartanburg, S.C., Mike, of Uniontown, Penn., Tim, of Monfort Heights; Dan, of Sharonville, Gerry, of Hyde Park, and Eugene, of White Oak; and 29 granddaughters and 16 grandsons.

Jim owns and operates a printing company in South Carolina. Tim is principal of St. Ignatius Loyola Elementary School in Monfort Heights. The other six brothers are physicians.

As the grandchildren came in bunches, Tom and Agnes never missed a baptism or first communion. Mr. Reilly kept it all organized on a self-made family calendar.

In 1999, he took all of the adults in the family to Ireland for a vacation, when they met relatives still living there.

In the final two decade of his life, the Reilly family – all 63 last June – gathered for beach vacations in North or South Carolina.

He would make housing arrangements and put up the “Reilly Beach” sign.

Visitation will be from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Friday at Hodapp Funeral Home, 6041 Hamilton Ave., in College Hill. Visitation will be held again at 10 a.m. Saturday at St. Clare Church, 1443 Cedar Ave., in College Hill, followed by the Mass of Christian Burial at 11 a.m.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Agnes and Tom Reilly Scholarship Fund, St. Xavier High School, 600 W. North Bend Road, Cincinnati, OH, 45224.

James P. Collins – One Biology, One Science: A Vision for the 21st Century

Posted on January 14th, 2010 by admin in nsf awardee | No Comments »

*** begin quote ***

The appearance of life put the Earth under new management, and life has continuously remodeled the atmosphere, oceans and land masses. The Earths climate and related life support systems are changing today in ways and at rates that are markedly different from those experienced in recorded human history. 21st century biology must provide the knowledge needed to adapt to these changes, and to recognize possible tipping points well in advance of the onset of environmental degradation, economic hardship, or pandemic disease. The future demands a trans- disciplinary approach to research and education that reaches beyond the science of traditional disciplines to prepare a new generation of scientists and educators to communicate science as a precise, predictive and reliable way of understanding life and adapting to a changing world.

James P. Collins was appointed Assistant Director for Biological Sciences at the National Science Foundation (NSF) effective October 15, 2005. Collins is also currently Virginia M. Ullman Professor of Natural History and the Environment in the School of Life Sciences at Arizona State University (ASU). Collins served as director of the Population Biology and Physiological Ecology program at the National Science Foundation from 1985 to 1986.

Collins received his B.S. from Manhattan College in 1969 and his Ph.D. from The University of Michigan in 1975. Collins has delivered the Pettingill Lecture in Natural History at The University of Michigan Biological Station; the Thomas Hall Lecture at Washington University, St. Louis; the Irving S. Cooper Lecture at Mayo Clinic/Scottsdale; and was a Bonchek Fellow at Franklin and Marshall College. ASUs College of Liberal Arts and Sciences awarded him the Distinguished Faculty Award in 2003 and the Gary Krahenbuhl Difference Maker award in 2005. Collins is a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) and a Fellow of the Association for Women in Science (AWIS). He has served on the editorial board of Ecology and Ecological Monographs, as well as Evolution.

ENDNOTE: The American Holocaust


A New Pro-life Documentary: “Blood Money”  
Written by Rebecca Terrell  
Tuesday, 29 December 2009 18:45

*** begin quote ***

LifeSiteNews interviewed David K. Kyle, who wrote, directed, and co-produced the video. He explained the original title was “The American Holocaust,” but the production crew soon realized each interview they conducted pointed to one driving force behind the abortion industry: money. “As I traveled around the country last September doing all these interviews with various pro-life leaders and women who had had abortions, the money part just kept coming up.” Kyle lamented, “People are making millions upon millions of dollars off the murdering of innocent babies.”

In another interview with Catholic News Agency, Kyle explained that the central message of Blood Money is “abortion destroys lives” of unborn children as well as the women who have abortions and their families. He said the industry masks its monetary motives behind a ruse of helping women. He hopes the film will expose abortionists’ true incentives.

[JR: Even if you don't subscribe to the religious or moral reasons to oppose abortion, here's a message that might sway you: "follow the money"! Personally, I'm swayed by the loss of potential. Might "we" (as a species) aborted the person who would have cured cancer? How many people will suffer from these incalculable losses. It is "our" holocaust. When will it end?]
