Britain is leaving the European Union. But that reality doesn’t begin to tell the story of the larger historical forces at work that are reshaping global politics, the global economy, and global culture and have been for much of the last decade.

*** end quote ***

People are finally beginning to wake up?

We can’t overlook that Joe Sixpack has been getting the short end of the stick for a long time.

Sorry, but it’s about time.

Tyn Myint-U, 84

Tyn Myint-U, a former Westport resident, died July 22 in the Boston area. He was 84.

He was husband of Aye Aye Thant, daughter of U Thant, the third secretary general of the United Nations. Aye Aye Thant was active in U.N.-related activities in Westport.

Together Aye Aye and Tyn established the Thant Institute “to reflect and promote her father’s values and ideals.”

Born Jan. 1, 1932 in Mandalay, Tyn was one of Burma’s first state scholars, studying at Michigan University and then finishing his Ph.D. in aeronautics at New York University.

He was a rocket scientist by training and taught for many years as a professor of mathematics at Manhattan College and Fairfield University, writing two textbooks on differential equations.

He later worked for the United Nations in Bangkok and New York.

Aye Aye Thant has lived in the United States since 1957 when her father was first appointed as an ambassador at the U.N.

Since leaving Burma in 1953, Tyn had always wanted to return home and was finally able to do so in 2012.

But he had to return to the United State less than three years later due to his declining health.

He is survived by his wife, Daw Aye Aye Thant, a son, Thant Myint-U, three daughters, Khinlei Myint-U, A-Thi Myint-U, and Aye Myint Myint-U, and four grandchildren.

Services will be held Monday, July 25 in Concord, Mass.

JNEWS: McMahon, Roderick [MC1899 RIP] forefather of the WWE

Jess McMahon: Boxing Promoter and Sire of the WWE
Fightland Blog
By L.A. Jennings

*** begin quote ***

The story of the McMahon family’s wrestling empire begins May 26, 1882, with the birth of Roderick “Jess” McMahon to Irish immigrants Roderick and Elizabeth McMahon. Jess’s career began early when, as a child, he put on kids wrestling matches, charging “pins, marbles, and pennies” for admission. According to Tim Hornbaker’s book, National Wrestling Alliance, Jess’s parents ran a hotel in New York City and with his middle-class upbringing, Jess graduated from Manhattan College in 1899 with a commercial degree, but he eschewed a white collar career to undertake what would be his true calling, and legacy, as one of the best fight promoters in history.

Jess and his brother, Edward, founded the New York Lincoln Giants in 1911, a black baseball team that had numerous wins in their first three years, including victories over all-white teams. Faced with money trouble, the brothers sold the team in 1914, but managed to travel to Cuba the following year to promote a fight between Jack Johnson and Jess Willard, in which Willard managed to knock out the champion. Jess already had a relationship with Johnson after securing an enormous $25,000 guarantee for the champion in 1912 for his fight with Joe Jeannette in 1912. Jess showed particular aptitude for setting up a fight that would be exciting not only in the U.S., but also in France and England, where Jeannette was a favorite.

*** begin quote ***

I am writing this on Father’s Day. Our tradition of breakfast in bed gave way to the new Waffle House in downtown Decatur. It was the kid’s idea (which frankly, seems to be an alarming trend for Father’s Day activities) but we all enjoyed it.

The day has drifted along – bike riding for Kristen and Margo, soccer in the park for me and Elliott, errands, baseball practice in the early evening. I even flexed my dad muscles by reading the New York Times and watching the U.S. Open. But I keep coming back to thoughts of my brother Rob.

Rob’s wake and funeral last month must have set some sort of Catholic Church attendance record. Do they keep stats? The three wake sessions were hardly enough for the throngs of people who came through. His funeral filled St. Agnes Cathedral for the first time since 9/11. Robert Jr.,16, gave a poignant and mature eulogy buttressed on either side by his siblings Caitlin,14, and Patrick, 12. It could not have been written or delivered without the gift of time that Rob gave Suzanne and the kids. He took a dire diagnosis and somehow stretched it out for six-and-a-half years like it was an entirely negotiable contract.

*** and ***

One attendee said he worked with Rob at Verizon many years ago. He was younger than my brother, but a fellow Manhattan College alum so Rob took him under his wing. He beamed when he spoke about how Rob was the most intelligent guy in the department and also the most patient and helpful. He felt so fortunate to have known and worked with Rob and he just wanted me to know that. And now I am so thankful to know that.

Nick was one highly respected and very gracious supporter of the Manhattan College Environmental Engineering program. At various consultor meetings, Nick would never lose his cool and always had thought provoking suggestions to offer. The college and I will miss him greatly. In my stints as chair and program director, I was happy to have Nick’s ever generous support. Peace Nick and keep smiling.

Nick was a great friend. He loved Manhattan College and gave substantial financial aid for the development of the environmental engineering graduate program.as well as for scholarships for deserving students. The college named the library and conference room in his honor. Manhattan College will always honor him. When I retired from teaching in 1995, he gave me a gift with which I am deeply grateful.

I will always remember Nick’s rendition of “Good Night Irene” at a New Year’s Eve party at my house in Syosset many moons ago. He had Joan and me, Ed and Jean Carr, and my husband Bill Parry cheering and laughing our heads off. Why do I imagine Bill and Jeannie welcoming Nick?

My deepest sympathy to the Bartilucci family at this sad time. I have known Nick & Joan for many years through the New York Water Envvironment Association (NYWEA). I, along with the “family” of NYWEA are very sad and will have the family in our prayers. Nick’s truly professional demeanor, wisdom, guidance and friendship will be greatly missed….
