Why Catholic Men should Consider becoming a Priest The 1st Amendment "establishment clause" validates a Right (entitled protection from Federal Government molestation) for Churches; such a Right implies an accompanying obligation i.e., to order soul's so as to amenable to the rule of law ; it is because of such an obligation that I think the citizenry have a claim upon clergy, in the...  Read More

Few subjects these days are more contentious than education, and rightly so. If our children are our future, it’s essential we do everything we can do educate them properly, to prepare them for what’s to come. But are we schooling our kids for a future that might not even exist by the time they’re ready to transition to the working world? Today, more than ever before, the ground beneath our...  Read More

While many seasonal businesses accept revenue and profit swings as their fate, the best find ways to smooth things out or turn seasonality into competitive advantages. You probably can’t change the underlying seasonality of demand. But you can choose whether to ignore, mitigate or leverage it. You would think people should be able to account for holiday shifts in their plans. But many don’t....  Read More

A look at the work of many contemporary Spanish filmmakers might lead one to think this is an unapologetically promiscuous race. The films of Pedro Almodovar hardly need much introduction in this regard. His work, as well as lesser known but highly popular films of recent years, among them Sex and Lucia (2002), My Name is Juani (2006) and Sex, Party and Lies (2009), portrays a modern day...  Read More

At Long Last Jeb Bush And Rand Paul Throw The 2016 Presidential Race Into Overdrive By Ralph Benko Last month the GOP suddenly awoke. As Michael Tomasky wrote in the March 19 issue of the New York Review of Books : As matters are shaping up so far, the sense of many people I speak to is that the election appears destined to be about the condition of the middle class, the issue of...  Read More

The day before the horrible racist murder of nine innocent parishioners in a Charleston, S.C. church, Donald Trump announced for president. In his rambling speech, he promised to build a wall along our southern border and make Mexico pay for it. And he veered into some nasty hate speech that echoed the racism of the alleged Charleston shooter, Dylann Roof. Trump babbled about the U.S. being a...  Read More

Should Religion and Politics Mix? A friend recently sent me a note regarding the missive I penned regarding Cardinal Wuerl’s interview by Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday; one of his comments – a comment with which is echoed by those which hold to “an inseparable wall between Church and State” - alluded to dire consequences which seem to result from relating Religion and Politics. My immediate...  Read More

On June 2, 2015, I attended the trial of Oskar Groening, a German SS officer who was assigned to Auschwitz in 1942-1944. He is being tried for being an accomplice to murder of 300,000 people at Auschwitz, the number of people sent to the gas chambers during the time he was there. Another 100,000 were sent to work during the same period, where many more died from hunger and the cold. Most were...  Read More

When we realize, in hindsight, the dazzling uncontested tremendous consequences for knowledge that have flowed from an original observation in a book or peer reviewed journal article, we might be forgiven for failing to see weakness in that publication. Writing on this very topic, in terms of scientific papers only, the highly esteemed hematologists Gwyn Macfralane (CBE, FRS) (1984, p 133) tells...  Read More

When you merge cultures well, value is created. When you don’t, value is destroyed. While some will suggest other factors – silly things like objectives and strategies and implementation – they are all derivative. The game is won or lost on the field of cultural integration. Get that wrong and nothing else matters. I spoke with Wolff Olins’ strategy director, Nick O’Flaherty about applying the...  Read More

News of the drought in the West may finally be percolating into the consciousnesses of the water one-percenters. Even though the story has been wall-to-wall in the newspaper and on local news, you still read about wealthy or well-to-do people who are totally oblivious. For example, there’s the 51-year-old water-wasting lawyer in Sherman Oaks who received a warning letter from the L.A. Department...  Read More

This past week has been full of events in our world that makes one stop and consider just where we are going. Beginning with the horrific shootings in Charleston, the shooting of law enforcement officers and the apology at the sentencing trial of the Boston Bomber we see examples of situations where we as a global community we see our problems but we do not take it to the next step – we don’t...  Read More

If my loss is quite small… A coach – let us call him Coach Yeorgi Meters - had managed to win State-championship a number of years ago, against an ostensibly much better undefeated opponent; perhaps he should have retired upon his laurels, but he continued to coach. Now as it turned out the coach became predictable as a coach, with each passing year his play-book dwindled until the plays were...  Read More

'When giving evidence to a military tribunal. the President asked him if he had anything more to say. Wright replied: ' No sir, I have given you the facts. I can't give you the brains.' From page 55 of Alexander Fleming; The Man and the Myth . by Gwyn Macfarlane (1984) Harvard University Press. Ouch! I must use my brain to remember to use that one. For now, I've adapted and it...  Read More

President Obama gave a thoughtful interview the other day to Marc Maron in which he said that we’re not cured of racism in America, and that slavery still “casts a long shadow.” As if proof of this were needed, the interview was released in the wake of suspected shooter Dylann Roof’s rampage at the Emanuel A.M.E. Church in Charleston, S.C. Nine innocent, unarmed congregants were brutally...  Read More

We all know that we live in an amazingly uncertain world full of doubts and reservations. Questions and misgivings about all manner of things, big and small, race through ourheads constantly. On the global stage, we wonder: What does the future hold for the economy — what’s going to happen with Greece’s financial crisis? Will it damage the European economy at large? How will this and other...  Read More

Each student has a 1000 A Daily Quota at University, i.e. 20*50 As. 50 As may be requested to be assigned to people, objects or ideas, including job applications. Lecturers may assign 50 As to students' needs to avoid being dismissed. Once enough sets of 50 As have been assigned, the rest should be negated. Being with-it over assigning 50 As during the degree forms a character that can be...  Read More

McNerney’s just announced retirement from Boeing presents an opportunity to look at these three executives’ longer-term impact.

Could The Fast Track For The Trans-Pacific Partnership Be A Bad Thing? by Ralph Benko Writing about TPP, “Fast Track,” and all the associated skirmishing is made somewhat difficult by the secrecy of the legislative text. That said, supply-side thought leader John Tamny declares “The TPP is a no-brainer.” (If Tamny means free trade is a no-brainer he surely is right.) So also declares ...  Read More
