Love in Paris – IES Abroad Alumni Kevin & Pat
Date: Friday, February 14, 2014

*** begin quote ***

For the final alumni couple in our weeklong “Love In…” series, we’ve featured Kevin and Pat Fox, who met while studying with IES Abroad in Paris in 1965-66. Often referred to as the “City of Love,” we thought it only fitting to save this one for Valentine’s Day.

Kevin was a History major at Manhattan College and Pat studied English and French at the University of Pittsburgh. They chose Paris mainly because, well, it’s Paris! Their story is special in that it’s told from both perspectives.

Mediation.com Adds Former Bankruptcy Judge Francis G. Conrad To Its Expanding Network of Attorney-Mediators
Sought-after jurist, accountant and financial mediator Francis G. Conrad brings business and judicial experience to Mediation.com.

 

Francis G. Conrad | New York Mediator | Banruptcy and Accounting Expert
Whether it’s mediation or arbitration, my philosophy has always been: the difficult matter we resolve right away; the impossible matter takes a little longer. – Francis G. Conrad

Long Beach, NY (PRWEB) December 12, 2013

The Honorable Francis G. Conrad has many professional designations that demonstrate his commitment to the law and the breadth of experience he obtained over the course of his career. A longtime supporter of alternative dispute resolution methods like mediation and arbitration, Judge Conrad is the newest member of the online network Mediation.com.

“My experience and knowledge in business relationships, bankruptcy and accounting comes in handy for my alternative dispute resolution practice,” Judge Conrad said. “Whether it’s mediation or arbitration, my philosophy has always been: the difficult matter we resolve right away; the impossible matter takes a little longer.”

Since leaving the bench, Judge Conrad has put his dispute resolution skills to work with over 900 mediations and 34 arbitrations. He has represented cases both big and small in this endeavor, with case values ranging from $100,000 to $22 million. His experience as an Emergency Medical Technician and hospital bankruptcy issues has led him to mediate in multiple accident injury and medical malpractice cases. Unsurprisingly, he was named as one of the top five mediators in New York State in both the “Best Financial Markets Mediator” and “Best International Mediator” categories of the 2012 New York Law Journal Reader Rankings Survey.

Having served as a Bankruptcy judge in multiple Federal Districts and on the Second Circuit Bankruptcy Appellate Panel, in addition to having worked as an attorney, allows Judge Conrad to bring superior skills of dispute resolution to the table for clients. He worked with numerous cases involving healthcare, investment banking, news and entertainment media, manufacturing, brokerage, shipping, retail, banking, leasing, accountant’s and legal malpractice.

As a business and law professor for more than 47 years both domestically and abroad, he is considered an expert in taxation, business strategies, accounting, and European Union law. He received his B.A. from Manhattan College, his M.B.A. from the John G. Hagan Graduate School of Business and his J.D. from the Fordham Law School. He is also a Certified Public Accountant, as well as a noted public speaker and author.

JEMAIL: Flynn, Bro. Gregory (MC1967) reminds about Addis Hope

2013-Oct-21

Hello John,

It’s been some time since I last contacted you about continuing your support for our Addis Hope program.

Some have mentioned to me that a reminder is often needed since in today’s hectic world it’s easy, even with the best of intentions, for the request to be put aside for the moment and then forgotten. While I really value your support, I recognize that you may not be in a position to assist. If that is the case, I will continue to ask your prayers for our efforts to provide the first steps out of extreme poverty through education for the children of these truly deserving and marginalized families.

While I desire to return to Ethiopia as soon as possible, I realize that my efforts to keep the program operational are currently best served by my continuing to fund raise stateside. To that end, I’ve been able to arrange that donations to the program be made tax exempt if sent through the Christian Brothers Provincialate Development Office, P.O. Box 238 Lincroft, NJ 07738, mentioning Addis Hope.

In the last eleven years I’ve asked for donations of $150 to sponsor a child for a year. The sad reality is that at least double that is needed today because of the increase in the cost of living. If that previous arrangement continues to suit you, we will be delighted for your help.

I also realize that it may be tedious for some to write and mail a check, so if you are in a position to send $25 or $50 on a monthly basis by having your bank mail a check to the above address, it would assure the program of a steady income and do away with our hand-to-mouth uncertainty. This arrangement is also tax exempt.

God bless. Perhaps this could be put into Jasper Jottings, John.

JEMAIL: Flynn, Bro. Gregory (MC1967), now healthy, restarts Addis Hope

Hello John,

It’s been quite a while since we met at Manhattan but I hope that everything continues to go well with you and Jasper Jottings.

After overcoming a few bumps in the road, I’ll be heading back to Ethiopia soon from NJ to continue my long time involvement in our Addis Hope program.

I’m very grateful to you for being a past donor/partner of that program. I’m including an attachment on how you can continue to assist really needy and deserving children. The attachment needs some fine tuning that I’ll work on when I return to Ethiopia.

God bless,
Greg

ADDIS HOPE CONTINUES!!!

I hope this finds you doing well since you last got an Addis Hope program e-mail from me ( July, 2012) stating that for a number of reasons, including my precarious health situation, that it would be best to close the program. I thanked my webmasters/cousins, Margaret and Bert McConnell and Mary Ellen Rabb for their many years of really devoted service to the program and understood their need to “retire” though the program wouldn’t be the same without their expertise.

I’m happy to report that my colleague and program founder, Ruth Girmay, managed to keep the program afloat during my lengthy convalescence. Since 2012, I have had several CAT scans that indicated that I have remained cancer free, thank the good Lord.

Ruth and I agreed to reopen the web site locally under a similar name that will provide further info.

http://www.addis-hopeethiopia.com

Brother William Martin, who is a member of the Christian Brothers community in Lincroft, NJ and a good friend as well as competent administrator, has agreed to funnel any checks received for the program to our account at Christian Brothers Investment Services from which I can have funds wired to the Addis Hope account in Addis Ababa for the operating expenses of the program.

A recent UNESCO report stated that Ethiopia ranked third in the world after Nigeria and Pakistan in the number of children without access to education, one million seven hundred thousand.

Even so, during its last eleven years of operation Addis Hope has graduated more than a thousand kindergarten age children who have gone on to continue their schooling in government institutions.

This, of course could only have happened because of your generous support.

I realize that you are called upon to support many worthy causes and only hope that you continue to think of Addis Hope as one that you can continue to support. As in the past, I ask $150 to sponsor a child knowing that it actually costs more and hope that those who are able will increase their donation.

God bless,

Br. Greg Flynn (Jack)

P.S. I am currently in my home community CBA, Lincroft, NJ but will be returning to Ethiopia shortly. Should you need more info, my cell is {Privacy Invoked} and e-mail, {Privacy Invoked}
