JFOUND: Lauria, Jim [MC1975] Women And Water



Guest Column | September 21, 2015     
Women And Water
By Jim Lauria

*** begin quote ***

In my last column, I referred to “men of a certain age,” zeroing in on the readers most likely to be fascinated in the ’70s and ’80s with both old monster movies and young Brooke Shields. But in no way do I believe water is a male problem (or a female one, at that). Water is an issue that unites us all.

*** and ***

Jim Lauria is a water technology executive with over 20 years of global experience in the agricultural, municipal, industrial, and commercial markets. He is currently Vice President of Sales & Marketing for Mazzei Injector Co. LLC, a fluid design company that manufactures mixing and contacting systems. Jim holds a Bachelor of Chemical Engineering degree from Manhattan College.

JEMAIL: Delaney, Gerard M. (MC1975) “Anathema sit”


1. To quote Commander Scott, “It’s Green!”

2. If you go to a college belonging to a religious tradition, whether it’s Jewish, Mennonite, delaSalle or Rice Christian Brothers, or Jesuit, you have to expect to see their history blazoned on the campus. In our case, it is Pere delaSalle instructing a youth, and the Lourdes grotto. In the case of St. Louis, it is Pere deSmet (and i’m sure other Jesuit iconography, including the sainted Founder). If you don’t like it, I’m sure that there are other universities that do not display religious imagery, and emphasize the religious nature of their history and mission, their vision of the past, and of their future, that would be more than happy to take them as transfer students. Tell them, “Anathema sit” and dust them off of your hands.

[JR: Laugh. It’s like these people are insane. It’s like going to a bar and demanding abstinence. BUT, (and there is always a BIG butt), aren’t we commanded to “love”? So you can’t “curse them”, but patiently treat them like the petulant crabby brats that they are. Eventually they will either “learn”, “grow up”, or “go away”. IMHO all equally acceptable. I like the Quaker and Amish for their tolerance. Thanks for reading and participating; it gets lonely here in Virtual Jasper Newsroom.]

JEMAIL: Delaney, Gerard M. (MC1975) says thanks



Thanks for the pointer to the obit in The Tablet for Aunt Helen. It helped to complete (and correct) part of my family history. 
I always thought it was I was the first member of my family to attend Manhattan. Then, after I graduated, I found out that Aunt Helen had beaten me by twenty years!
Thanks also to Philip J. Colon for putting her on his prayer list, and to all of our brother (and sister) Jaspers who have said an Ave for her. 
Peace in the Eucharistic Lord, 
Gerard Delaney

[JR: Sorry for your loss. Just trying to “collect” all the Jasper news. Funny, how little we really do know about others. I wish I had the resources to capture all the stories, dikw (i.e., data, information, knowledge, wisdom), as well as the legends (i.e., what we think happened — even if we’re probably suffering selective memory). Laugh! The good Nuns and Brothers certainly were a God send to us. I think future generations will not understand their contribution to society. (Certainly they demonstrated the failings of today’s Gooferment Skrules!)]
