JEMAIL: McEneney, Mike (MC1953) finds a picture in the NYT


Dear John,

On Monday, October 27th, page A22 in the print edition of The New York Times, there is a picture that accompanies an Article entitled “Generations of Lawyers Gather for a Reunion Like No Other” about a reunion of current and former members of the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York. There is a Manhattan connection in the Picture – On the left end standing is Otto Obermaier, ’57, on the right end is Judge John Martin, ’57, both former U.S. Attorneys for the Southern District, and in the Center Standing, is James Comey, Director of the FBI, son of J. Brien Comey Class of 1953! (Rudy Giuliani, ’65 is also a Former U.S. Attorney for the Southern District, is not in the picture as he appeared via TV).

An impressive group of JASPERS!

JEMAIL: Dans, Peter E. (MC1957) detected snarky


From Dans, Peter E. (MC1957)

The quote in the Post-traction about Pope Francis was OK up to the point that the writer slammed Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI with the snarky “angels on the head of a pin” dig. It was both unnecessary for the Obama comparison he was making and unfair to someone who will be recognized as one of the greatest and humblest of Popes ever. He will be declared a saint in due time.

# – # – #  

[JR: It was in the “end note”.   And, I thought it was a fair differentiation between the two world views. Both men have their own “style”.   For all the homespun humility of Pope Francis, I suspect that he, like most Pope’s, is made of sterner stuff.   Critiquing them is far above my pay grade, but I will observe on the differences.   What I took away from the whole article was summed up by that quote about “People Who Say It Can’t Be Done … … should not interrupt those who are doing it.” — attributed to George Bernard Shaw  And, after all, it is important to know how many angels will fit on that proverbial pin. ]

JNEWS: Uhran, John J. Jr. (MC1957) 2014 ASEE Fellow



[July 18, 2014]

John Uhran Named 2014 ASEE Fellow
(Targeted News Service Via Acquire Media NewsEdge)

NOTRE DAME, Ind., July 17 — The University of Notre Dame issued the following news: John J. Uhran Jr., senior associate dean emeritus and professor emeritus of computer science and engineering at the University of Notre Dame, has been named a fellow of the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE).

The grade of fellow is conferred upon an individual who has been an ASEE member for a minimum of 10 years and in recognition of his or her outstanding contributions to engineering or engineering technology education.

Although his research interests focused initially on communication theory and systems and simulation techniques, more recently he devoted time to artificial intelligence. Uhran maintained a special interest in engineering education throughout his career, providing significant leadership in the development of many undergraduate programs in Notre Dame’s College of Engineering.

A faculty member since 1966, Uhran helped develop several laboratories at Notre Dame and published more than 90 technical papers and 30 reports. He is co-developer of NDTran, a software package used to simulate large systems. Before retiring, he began a series of conferences on First Year Engineering Education. The sixth in the series is being held at Texas A&M in August. He has been actively involved in both the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers and ASEE, served as an adviser for Tau Beta Pi and is a member of Eta Kappa Nu, Sigma Xi and Alpha Phi Omega.

Uhran received his doctorate in electrical engineering from Purdue University in 1967. He earned his master’s and bachelor’s degrees, both in electrical engineering, from Purdue (1963) and Manhattan College (1957).

JNEWS: Petrone, Louis S. “Key West Lou” (MC1957) Featured Host, Blog Talk Radio



Posted on July 10, 2014 by keywestlou

I have been doing Blog Talk Radio for two years. Love doing the show! It is a quick half hour of Louis expressing his thoughts on political and social issues. The half hour requires 10-12 hours weekly of preparation. Which I enjoy! I was a lawyer. Lawyers research.

Blog Talk Radio advised me this week that I have been elevated to Featured Host. The designation is noted on my blog talk radio page. Additionally, I will be listed picture and all as a Featured Host on Blog Talk’s home page. Do not be impressed. Blog Talk is a big operation and has many hosts. Featured Hosts number about one hundred.

Blog Talk indicated the reason for the designation being applied to the show was two fold. A growing audience and the quality of the subject matter presented.
