MNEWS: An ex MC faculty has a idea worth stealing


New Transylvania president plans to listen, make changes slowly at a campus in need of healing

Earlier this year, Seamus Carey received two job offers to become a college president — one from Transylvania University and one from a school closer to his home in New York

*** and ***

As Carey visited Lexington in anticipation of his July 1 start date, he began thinking about liberal arts and careers, especially in light of Transy’s enthusiastic alumni base. He calls his new plan 100 Doors to Success: matching every freshman with a Transy alumnus who can guide each student from a liberal arts education to a career.

*** and ***

Carey has an extensive background in liberal arts: He majored in economics at Vassar College, then was hired by Fordham University straight out of graduate school with a doctorate in philosophy. He taught at the New Jersey Institute of Technology in Newark and at Manhattan College before being named the dean of arts and science at Sacred Heart University in Fairfield, Conn., in 2010. A Bronx native, he has never lived far from the New York metropolitan area.

JNEWS: White, Elaine T. [MC2010] CNR VP student services


College of New Rochelle Names New Student Services VP
by Joe Jenkins

2014 07 19 White

NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. — The College of New Rochelle recently appointed Elaine T. White as the new vice president for student services.

In her new role, White will supervise the offices of: Campus Ministry, Career Development, Residence Life, Counseling and Health Services, Student Activities, Student Development, Athletics and the Wellness Center.

White has served as dean of students at The College of New Rochelle since June 2012, advocating for student concerns and working collaboratively with her academic colleagues.

“Elaine has demonstrated a consistent ability to empower student leaders and challenge students to fully develop their individual talents,” Judith Huntington, president of The College of New Rochelle, said in a statement. “Her commitment to fostering a vibrant and engaging community supports student success and resonates deeply with the mission of our college.”

White came to the college from Manhattan College, where she was director of student development. She has held positions with increasing levels of responsibility throughout more than 20 years in leadership roles at institutions of higher learning.

White received a Bachelor of Arts degree from Long Island University-Brooklyn and a Master of Arts degree in counseling from Manhattan College.

Dear John,

I believe that Elaine received her Masters in 2010.

She was a great asset at Manhattan.

POSITRACTION: Are we hardwired with instinctive empathy


10 Weird Ways Your Brain Is Tricking You

*** begin quote ***

#4 Sympathetic Pain

Have you ever heard seen someone slam their foot in the door and winced in pain even though nothing happened to you? Or just heard a story of someone getting hurt and had the same experience? That’s sympathetic pain. The researchers who studied this used MRI machines to test how subjects’ brains reacted when looking at faces with certain expressions, and when making those expressions. What they found is that the brain displays the same activity in either case. The part of the brain responsible for this is called the “mirror area” and scientists believe we have something called “mirror neurons,” which are responsible for creating a sympathetic response. Essentially, humans are hardwired to think we are feeling the same things as other people—essentially a very strong version of instinctive empathy.

*** end quote ***

Is this akin to husbands getting morning sickness or cravings?

Could it be that the Creator or the Universe has hardcoded empathy into our DNA?

Perhaps, humanity if free from all the incorrect paradigms and memes that we’ve accumulated over the eons could be amazing. Or have those errors been “bred” into us. Like the learned “weakness” of the huge elephant bound by a slender rope.

What do we really know? And we don’t know what we don’t know even though we think we know.

Too much for this fat old white guy injineer to know.

ENDNOTE: McFadden, Michael J. [MC1973] cites Australia Anglican Confession


FROM: McFadden, Michael J. [MC1973]

John, I read William Brigg’s blog entry today and thought of you, and said to myself, “Xe might be interested in these thoughts.”

(See both Confessions and Humpty Dumpty)

Don’t Go To Confession; Humpty-Dumptying The English Language; More

Go To Confession

But not in the Anglican Church in Australia. The enlightened leaders of that organization are now forcing priests to rat out parishioners who confess to acts which carry jail terms of at least five years.

“Forgive me, enlightened one, for I have sinned. It has been forty-two weeks since my last confession.”

“Go on, my son.”

“I accidentally side-swiped another car on my way home last week and didn’t report it.”

Sounds of pages flipping. “Were you at the time going more than 40 KPH?”

“Um, I don’t recall. Maybe.”

“Hmm….” More page flipping. “Well, was the other car moving at the time?”

“No, it was parked.”

Flip, flip, flip. “Now we’re getting somewhere. Was this on a public street or in a private lot? Such as might be found at a Drake’s Supermarket?”

“Right on the street.”

“One final question. Were you drinking at the time?”

“Well, I might have had one or two beers at the pub. But I was fine to drive.”

“My son, according to the Criminal Code, if you’re found guilty—and you have just confessed to the crime, so that is not really in question—your offense has a maximum sentence of six years. I’ll be sending a recording of this conversation to the police. Slide your ID through the slot. I’d advise you not to attempt to flee. That can add considerably to your tariff…”

Confession no longer means what it used to mean, and this is because of…
