Impressions from reading the 40-page "Final Report: Planning for a 21st Century Medical School at UC Merced."

  • Keeper cliché: "As a microcosm of unmet health needs worldwide, the Valley is a natural 'laboratory' for examining critical questions on the global health agenda."

  • Where this "lab" stands in the pecking order: Way back. Blame the economy, the difficulty of starting a med school, the byzantine ways of the University of California.

My first telephone was a "party line" -- a line shared with someone somewhere else. I have a manual typewriter, a fountain pen and I sharpen and use Community Foundation pencils daily.

But I also blog (no-duh), have a Facebook page and a Linkedin account -- I'm also Tweeting, but haven't gotten any followers yet. Some people call it fun, others a waste of time, still others a way to network and find folks they've lost track of  -- the "it" is Social Media.

Does the name Jason McElwain sound familiar? Well, it certainly didn't to me until I saw him on a commercial during the Super Bowl...affectionately referred to as "J-Mac", he's the Team Manager of the Trojan's Varsity Basketball Team at Greece Athena High School near Rochester, New York. He is very passionate about the game and has been for many years. He is a 5' 6" senior that didn't make the team and life's been a bit of a challenge since he was diagnosed with autism at age 2.

It will be a good match-up we hope...Cardinal's wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald (6-foot-3-inch) and Pittsburgh's safety Troy Polamalu (5-foot-10-inch-I love his hair by the by) will undoubtedly collide on may occassions, and the event will be viewed by millions...
