Once Every 823 Years! August 2014 has 5-5-5...

From a newsletter of my mutual areas of Leisure World, a senior community --  " This August will have 5 Fridays, 5 Saturdays and 5 Sundays. This happens only once every 823 years.  That means the next time will be in the year 2837."  Wonder our future children's life would be like?


Many thanks to Nancy Chough for sharing this info!

Congratulations to Dr. Gerald "Bummy" Burstein!

Gerald "Bummy" Burstein, '50 & H-'86 will receive the Sesquicentennial Distinguished Alumni Award during the Gallaudet University Reunion Week July 9-13, 2014. The reunion celebrates both the university's 150th anniversary of the signing of its charter and the 125th anniversary of the establishment of the Gallaudet University Alumni Association (GUAA).

On April 8, during the university's Charter Day Festival, GUAA President Alyce Slater Reynolds, '76 & G-'78 and Gallaudet President T. Alan Hurwitz announced that Burstein would receive the award, an honor bestowed by both the GUAA and the Board of Trustees, for his decades of GUAA leadership and unwavering support to the University.

"Bummy Burstein has dedicated his life to supporting and serving the Gallaudet University community and the Gallaudet University Alumni Association," said Hurwitz. "Bummy has given generously and led several alumni fundraising challenges that raised more than $1 million. Bummy is passionate about preserving his beloved alma mater for future generations of young deaf and hard of hearing students."

Burstein served the GUAA with distinction for 13 years as president of its board of directors, 13 years as immediate past president, and three years as vice president.

Sit Longer, Die Sooner

Inactivity Is Killing Us! 

What does INACTIVITY mean?
*not doing things that require physical movement and energy 
*not exercising
*not involved in the activities of a group or organization

American adults sit an average 8 to 10 hours everyday.
(164 more hours than in 1992)
