JEMAIL: Fagan, Gene (MC1950) has two obits

John,

Attached are two obituaries of Manhattan graduates who recently died. One died this past week and the other in July. You may already have one or both.

1. Ben Corballis’s obituary from today’s Wilmington Delaware News-Journal. He and I were graduated together in 1950. I never knew him either in school or in Wilmington, DE where I have lived since 1950. His degree was in Arts & Science while mine was in Electrical Engineering. The obituary is the longest I have ever seen. It took up an entire half page of the newspaper. This is in stark contrast with my 1950 yearbook. For some reason it shows only his name and picture, no record of having participated in any activities in college.

2. Ed Hammer’s obituary from the December 2013 edition of the IEEE Industry Application Society’s Newsletter. I assume he must have graduated in the mid 1950’s. You may already have this one since he died in July. It is on the last page of a ten page newsletter so scroll down to the very end. I didn’t know Ed either but he seemed to be a leader in the lighting industry. Too bad GE didn’t follow up on his work or we would have gotten rid of the incandescent light bulb years earlier.

John, I had a lot of trouble loading these attachments. If you have any trouble downloading them, let me know and I’ll try again.

[JR: I reported Corballis’ obit this week. And Hammer’s in July. Thanks for the confirmation. This weekend I’ll compare them to what was reported and if different put them on the “back lot”. Doing obits makes me stunned at what our fellow alums have accomplished.]

JFOUND: Ferraiola, Thomas J. ‘Tom’ [MC1950] cited as a teacher

Is He Not the Carpenter’s Son?
by GodGoogler

*** begin quote ***

In many working class families, there’s often a strange dynamic at play. Parent’s want their children to succeed, but they also don’t want them to succeed so much that it brings a certain haughtiness to their demeanor. As an example, my Chemistry teacher in high school, Tom Ferraiola, once told me a story about how his family would make their own wine, a typical Italian tradition. Tom, a working class kid, did well in school and ended up studying chemistry at Manhattan College and later at Niagara University, a stone’s throw from where I am now in Buffalo. When he’d come home the parents would invite him to come make wine with them.

During the fermentation process, the liquid would start to bubble, a sign that the yeast was feeding on the sugar and producing alcohol, a typical chemical reaction, known well by Tom.

“Now it’s boiling.” Tom’s father would say.

“Dad,” Tom would counter, “It’s not boiling, it’s fermenting.”

[JR: Welcome. I’m sure you won’t mind if I use this as a “teachable movement” for our younger alums.]

May I suggest that you have your own domain?

The common wisdom, or is that common whizdumb, is to own your own name as a domain name. I own “reinke.cc”. (I like saying “sea sea me at reinke.cc”! me@reinke.cc will actually work!) I gives one quite a bit of control.

And, it’s very cheap.

I know three solutions at 15$/year using wordpressdotcom with gmail, 25$/year email only with 1and1, and 60$/year for domain+email+webspace also at 1and1. My point is not that you should use 1and1. http://www.1and1.com/?k_id=9113251 I could care less which one you use. It’s that getting on to your own domain with email is cheap and easy. And, it’s not hotmail, yahoo, or gmail. It IS your own “personal brand”.

You should choose something short, memorable, business-like, and eternal.

Then, even if you use an ISP, GMail, or anyone else for mail services, you always give out your domain address. (Or in my case, one of your domain addresses. Allows you to “sort” your inbound email by priority.

The eternal part is that you NEVER have to change emails. People, that you’ve long forgotten, still will have an email that works. People, who got you email from someone else (i,e,. recruiters and network referrals) can still “find” you.

FWIW.
