JNEWS: Bryk, William (MC1977) seeks political office



July 10. 2016 7:50PM
Running for Hillsborough County Probate seat

To the Editor:

I am a 61-year old lawyer, specializing in guardianship and fiduciary law. I had also conducted many successful consumer bankruptcy cases. I enjoy helping people solve their problems. I would like to do that in this office.

I worked my way through Manhattan College. Later, while working full time, I earned a law degree from Fordham Law School’s evening division and was admitted to the New York bar in 1990. Until my retirement in 2010, I spent most of my career in New York City government.

I’ve practiced law in the public and private sectors. I have appeared in state and federal courts and before municipal administrative tribunals. I have also served by judicial appointment as a court examiner, reviewing guardians’ accounts to help ensure that incapacitated persons are not subject to financial exploitation.

Over the last 20 years, I’ve published numerous articles, columns, essays, and reviews in newspapers such as The Daily Beast, New York Press, The New York Sun, and New York Newsday and magazines such as Cabinet, Last Exit, The New York Chronicle, and Smashpipe.

Each New Hampshire county has a Register of Probate. He or she is responsible for coordinating with the administrative judge of the circuit court the preservation of any closed files having the potential for historical significance.

I look forward to serving the people of Hillsborough County in this office.

COMMENT: Bryk, William (MC1977) remembers Farina, John [MC1978 RIP]


RE: John Farina ’78

John was my fraternity brother in Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia, Kappa Pi Chapter. He was a sweet, good-humored, and witty man and I was always happy to see him. Like most good-natured people, he was intensely serious about the things that mattered to him: God, truth, facts, and the service of others. His death diminishes me.

ENDNOTE: Separation of the Gooferment from Healthcare among other things



From The Right
Why the Government should not control HealthCare
Moore, William ‘Bill’ [MC1977] 
April 18, 2016 

*** begin quote ***

This election becomes even important as realistically our last chance to stop government intrusion into our healthcare. It will also be our last chance to ensure we continue to have the best healthcare available to who needs it. Remember the Left has stated it is necessary for the young to pay significantly more and our old to be denied certain treatments as being too costly. They lied and promised TORT Reform to cut down on the costs of medical insurance due to frivolous lawsuits. Nothing has been done. Why should you expect them to tell the truth when they promise low and better coverage healthcare.

Only the Government would insist people who cannot afford to buy healthcare pay a heavy fine for not buying what they cannot afford. Rates up there with ‘You have to pass it to see what’s in it ” or “You can keep your doctor or health plan if you want to”.

We need to elect people who will force the Government to get out of the healthcare business except for the few regulations necessary to protect consumers. Vote Smaller Government


*** end quote ***

I, often, quote: “If voting made any difference they wouldn’t let us do it.” ― Mark Twain

We have many negative exemplars of Gooferment “healthcare”. The VA, the Indian Healthcare System, Medicare, Medicaid, Canada, England, etc etc etc.

We even have a few excellent examples of totally free healthcare in the various form of “medical tourism”. Canadians coming over the border to the USA for MRIs that take months of waiting under the Canadian Gooferment to the point of causing deaths. (I first became aware of it when going to Niagara Falls and seeing signs for 100U$D MRIs available from 1 to 4 AM.) There are countless stories of people going to India, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Thailand for surgeries that cost several hundred thousand in the USA being done cheaply by Board Certified Doctors in what is described as “resort hotel settings”. Even including the cost of travel. 

I don’t have an answer HOW we move back to liberty and the free market. But then I’m old and set in my ways. I fear that the young have been trained by Gooferment Skrules to only see Gooferment as the solution.

Perhaps it’s in the “little things” that we can strike back. The way “We, The Sheeple” treat “Speed Limits”. OR taxes, avoid evade under-the-table barter.

In healthcare, some doctors are going cash only concierge medicine. If I could find one, I’d try it.

“If you love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you; May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.”  ― Samuel Adams

JNEWS: Farber, William [MC1977] a “personal quest”



Military math meets math-challenged students
By Bill Heltzel
April 14, 2016 

*** begin quote ***

“The assumption is that veterans have something they bring to the table,” said William Farber, an associate professor of secondary education who is the principal investigator. “They are seasoned. They have a sense of organization and discipline.”

*** and ***

Farber described the program as a “personal quest” that combines his love of math with his respect for the military.

He served in the U.S. Navy in Vietnam. He majored in math at Manhattan College and earned two master’s degrees and a doctorate in education from Columbia University. He taught junior high school math in the Bronx for a dozen years “and loved it,” and joined the Mercy College faculty in 2010.

He wrote the grant application with Arlene Zimny, director of accreditation. Nagaraj Rao, professor of mathematics, and Terri Lynn Germain-Williams, assistant professor of secondary education, are co-investigators. Brian Baldwin is program evaluator.

Farber is scouring veterans programs and local colleges for the first 10 veterans. Candidates must have a math degree or 30 hours of math credits. He also will consider veterans with degrees or at least 24 credits in related fields such as engineering, computer science and cyber security. Those candidates will take classes for six more math credits.

One pool of talent, he said, is retired military officers who are still “young and vibrant and ready to serve again.”
