ADMINISTRIVIA: Jasper Louis S. [MC1957] Petrone mentions Reinke’s blood drive globally


My Life in Key West
MONDAY, JUNE 27, 2011

*** begin quote ***

I am a Manhattan College graduate. Manhattan men are known as Jaspers. After the founder of the College, Brother Jasper.

Jasper lives some where in New Jersey. He is a bit younger than me, but not my much I suspect.

So a blood drive in Evelyn’s honor has been planned for July 1. It will be at the Micro Waste facility , 5 Industrial Drive, New Brunswick, NJ. From noon to six in the evening.

Telephone 732-565-5880 to sign up. If you give elsewhere, remember to say it is honor of Evelyn Reinke.

Petrone, Louis S. [MC1957]

[JR: It’s nice that “Key West Lew” used his global blog to mention Frau Reinke. She’d be so embarrassed by any “fuss”. In the grand scale of things, all we can do is try. Just put one foot in front of the other. That she’d insist on. Thanks to my fellow Jasper, Key West Lou.]

TECHNOLOGY: Diwheel – gravity-defying?


June 14th, 2011 at 11:30 am

The Diwheel – gravity-defying electric vehicle

in: Alternative Transportation, Crazy Stuff, New Inventions, Science & Technology News

*** begin quote ***

The gravity-defying vehicle has two large wheels that are axially aligned with an inner frame. This holds the driver who is strapped in with a racing harness. A joystick is used to turn it on the spot and drive it forwards at up to 25mph. The bright yellow electric motor is affectionately known as Edward, which is short for Electric Diwheel With Active Rotation Damping.

*** end quote ***

I don’t understand “gravity-defying”.

If you do, can you explain it to me?
