MFOUND: Remembering the frozen yogurt machine

Tiger Woods’ NSFW motivational message, Tony Romo’s biggest win, and a golf legend returns to the spotlight

July 17, 2018

As a rising high school senior in 1999, I unfortunately missed watching live Jean van de Velde’s final-hole debacle while attending a basketball camp. Sadly, I also missed David Cone’s perfect game that week and had to settle for (gasp!) reading about both historic events in a newspaper. On the bright side, I remember going to town on the frozen yogurt machine in the Manhattan College cafeteria… Anyway, while the French remain scarred by this claret jug memory, having that gold ball back will certainly ease the pain. And while we wait to see what craziness Carnoustie has in store this year, here’s what else has us talking.

Nice to be known for something?

Manhattan College student Kaiyun Chen explained that although she doesn’t practice any faith, she was motivated to become involved as a campus ambassador because of the nature of the agency’s work.

“When I was introduced to the organization and asked to be a student ambassador I was thinking about what the organization stands for and what they believe in and what they do for other people and it makes me feel more passionate toward what I can do,” Chen said.

Students also said they planned to return to their campuses this fall ready to share what they learned about the global work of CRS and encourage others to join them in promoting the agency.

MFOUND: Manhattan College Address 30 April 1951 by Jacques Maritain


Manhattan College Address
30 April 1951
[From a typewritten manuscript by Jacques Maritain, with the author’s handwritten revisions.]

*** begin quote ***

Eminence, Very Reverend Brother President, Reverend Brothers, Ladies and Gentlemen:First of all I should like to express my heartfelt thanks and the gratitude of all the recipients, to Manhattan College for the honorary degrees and the medals we are to be granted, and to His Eminence Cardinal Spellman for his presence at this ceremony and the precious encouragement of his inspiring words. We thank him respectfully for the privilege of his gracious attendance; we thank Manhattan College for the academic honors it is bestowing upon us, and for its willingness to receive us in its spiritual family on the day when the third centenary of the birth of St. Jean Baptiste de la Salle is commemorated. This commemoration brings a particular significance to the present celebration, which is a testimony, among many others, of the great work achieved by the Christian Brothers, and the extraordinary manner in which the mission of their saintly founder has succeeded in the course of two centuries and a half.

[JR: A long interesting insight.]
