Sad news about Terry Bivens, a former colleague in both Wilmington and Philadelphia

Dava Guerin posted this last night on Facebook:

“It is with the utmost profound grief and devastation that my husband of almost 25 years, Terry Bivens, committed suicide yesterday. His pain was silent and his death shocking. I’m not able to process this but wanted my friends to know. He was the best husband and father anyone could ask for. This void can never be filled but our family is strong and I’m praying we can get through this and eventually accept that in Terry’s heart he felt what he did what was best for him. There is no one who can ever replace this truly magnificent man.”

6 years ago today at Signe Wilkinson's house, the late Harry S. Gross joined Joe Berkery and a guy in an Andrew Bynum jersey for a sendoff to Philadelphia Daily News legends Vince Kasper and Kevin Bevan.

At Signe's party for Kevin and Vince: Kevin (Joe Berkery) and Vince (David Lee Preston) were in a heated discussion about how Harry S. Gross would advise them to invest their buyout windfall, when the legendary personal-finance columnist popped out from behind the door and told them they were both "toads" who had no idea what they were talking about.

It is a challenging time for everyone during the Covid 19 pandemic. Please find below a thought-provoking paper on the topic of utilizing precautionary measures and their citations. Hope you benefit from the paper and enjoy its content. Kamel Ben Salem Professor of Data analysis at the Department of Computer Science at the Faculty of Science, Tunis, 2092 El Manar II - Tunisia; E-mail : [email protected] Website : http://www.fst.rnu.tn/kbs/All_fichiers/Home.html ResearchGate account: https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Kamel_Ben_Salem ************************************************************ Can the Power of Prayer Alone Stop a Pandemic like the Coronavirus? Even the Prophet Muhammad Thought Otherwise Opinion Craig Considine On 3/17/20 at 1:06 PM EDT The COVID-19 pandemic is forcing governments and news sources to provide the most accurate and helpful advice to the world's population, as the disease is indeed global in reach. Health care professionals are in high demand, and so too are scientists who study the transmission and effect of pandemics. Experts like immunologist Dr. Anthony Fauci and medical reporter Dr. Sanjay Gupta are saying that good hygiene and quarantining, or the practice of isolating from others in the hope of preventing the spread of contagious diseases, are the most effective tools to contain COVID-19. Do you know who else suggested good hygiene and quarantining during a pandemic? Muhammad, the prophet of Islam, over 1,300 years ago. While he is by no means a "traditional" expert on matters of deadly diseases, Muhammad nonetheless had sound advice to prevent and combat a development like COVID -19. Muhammad said: "If you hear of an outbreak of plague in a land, do not enter it; but if the plague outbreaks out in a place while you are in it, do not leave that place." He also said : "Those with contagious diseases should be kept away from those who are healthy." Muhammad also strongly encouraged human beings to adhere to hygienic practices that would keep people safe from infection. Consider the following hadiths, or sayings of Prophet Muhammad : "Cleanliness is part of faith." "Wash your hands after you wake up; you do not know where your hands have moved while you sleep." "The blessings of food lie in washing hands before and after eating." And what if someone does fall ill? What kind of advice would Muhammad provide to his fellow human beings who are suffering from pain? He would encourage people to always seek medical treatment and medication : "Make use of Medical treatment," he said, "for God has not made a disease without appointing a remedy for it, with the exception of one disease—old age." Perhaps most importantly, he knew when to balance faith with reason. In recent weeks, Some have gone so far as to suggest that prayer would be better at keeping you from the coronavirus than adhering to basic rules of social distancing and quarantine. How would Prophet Muhammad respond to the idea of prayer as the chief—or only—form of medicine? Consider the following story, related to us by ninth-century Persian scholar Al-Tirmidhi : One day, Prophet Muhammad noticed a Bedouin man leaving his camel without tying it. He asked the Bedouin, "Why don't you tie down your camel?" The Bedouin answered, "I put my trust in God." The Prophet then said, "Tie your camel first, then put your trust in God." Muhammad encouraged people to seek guidance in their religion, but he hoped they take basic precautionary measures for the stability, safety and well-being of all.In other words, he hoped people would use their common sense. Dr. Craig Considine is a scholar, professor, global speaker, and media contributor based at The Department of Sociology at Rice University. He is the author of The Humanity of Muhammad: A Christian View (Blue Dome Press, 2020), and Islam in America: Exploring the Issues (ABC-CLIO 2019), among others.

America’s Anchor is a regional naval history of the Delaware River and Bay, the cradle of the United States Navy and Marine Corps. The scope of the book spans three centuries in a tri-state area from early exploration to the end of World War II. It tells the exciting tale of the seaman of the Delaware Valley and the notable ships they sailed in peace and war. Some were famous naval heroes and others were nameless sailors and marines dating back centuries. America’s Anchor describes the various naval engagements fought over the years in the Delaware estuary and outside the Delaware Capes. It discusses the improvement in naval infrastructure such as lighthouses, canals, and navigational aids that made this possible. The Delaware river and bay was one of America’s premier shipbuilding centers where many technological advances were first employed. America’s Anchor includes the story of the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard, Delaware river and bay pilots, the U.S. Lifesaving Service and the role of the Coast Guard. McFarland and Co.
