JEMAIL: Delaney, Gerard M. (MC1975) finds “scientists” from Alma Mater



Mention of “scientists” from Alma Mater

Scientists from Manhattan College will be checking on the progress of Sponge Park. They’ve stored equipment monitoring equipment under canisters to check after a big storm. This is a pilot project opens officially in the spring. If it is a success sponge parks might pop up in other places along the canal.

[JR: Hmmm, wonder if they were “scientists” from the upper campus or “injineers” from the lower dregs. I’m sure any self-respecting fat old white guy injineer would not want to be labeled with the epithet “scientist”. Injineers do stuff and make it work; scientist just give us theories and Ivory Tower ideas. Laugh! Thanks for the find. (Haven’t had my morning coffee yet so I’m a grumpy fat old white guy injineer.)]

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.]
