Family members were encouraged to light candles to honor the deceased students at the annual memorial service in the Ohio Union's Interfaith Room at 7 p.m. on Thursday. There were potted rosemary plants for each of the 18 students who passed away this school year. The theme of the service was "Once a Buckeye, always a Buckeye."

Many tears were shed for deceased loved ones at the annual memorial service held for Ohio State students who have passed away this school year.

The service was held at the Ohio Union's Interfaith Room on Thursday to honor the 18 students that passed away during the academic year. President E. Gordon Gee and Javaune Adams-Gaston, vice president for the Office of Student Life, told family, friends and the OSU community that the students will always be remembered as Buckeyes.

Gee said all the deceased students had one common experience – they knew what it was like to be a Buckeye.

"They are and will surely always remain a piece of us – the Ohio State community," Gee said. "I thank you for the gift of these remarkable students. They will forever remain in our hearts."

The theme of the memorial service was "Once a Buckeye, always a Buckeye." Adams-Gaston said the service is a time during the year when the OSU community comes together to grieve and remember.

"In the hurried world we sometimes forget … to grieve and connect," Adams-Gaston said. "They are missed and remembered by this Ohio State community."

Before the memorial service, the Interfaith Association displayed candles, potted plants and a remembrance board in the lobby of the Union so students could have an opportunity to interact with the remembrance service. Chris Kauffman, part of the Interfaith Association, said students were able to sign the board to honor the deceased students. The candles, potted plants and remembrance board were moved to the Interfaith Room before the memorial service started. At the end of the service, family members were encouraged to light candles to honor the deceased.

The Office of Student Life, the Student Advocacy Center, the Union, the Office of Parent and Family Relations and the Interfaith Association sponsored the service. Karen Kyle, director of the Student Advocacy Center, said about half the families of the deceased students attended the service.

"I felt it went well. I thought it was meaningful to the family and friends," Kyle said.

Family, friends and the OSU community were invited to attended the service. The seats quickly filled up and many attendees had to stand at the back and along the sides of the room during the service. There were at least 150 people in attendance.

Kauffman said the families and friends brought many supporters to the service this year, which made it the largest attendance he has ever seen.

"This is the highest attendance we have had at this event," Kauffman said.

The collaboration between the sponsors and students made the memorial service the best Kauffman has ever experienced, he said. Kauffman said the service is especially important for the family, friends and OSU community so they can have an opportunity to grieve and find closure.

"To have Gee and Adams-Gaston speak is really important for the families," Kauffman said. "(The memorial service) is really meaningful and a significant part of campus."

Members of the Buckeye Electric Motorcycle Race Team attended to remember Ryan Williams, a fourth-year in engineering, who died in a motorcycle accident April 14.

Dear Yahoo! "Help" people online,


My email address is Recently when i tried to send out email, I got a block message saying that sending out messages from this email account has been temporarily suspended. I would like to know why. I am not in the porn business, and am not sending out any kind of illegal email - according to your policy, including spam. I want this email to be reconnected, and have no idea why Yahoo is playing games. Is this because you know I am from Ohio and am trapped in Greensboro, NC with no job and no money? The local police have been contacted. I do not think this situation is the least bit funny. Maybe this goes along with the long sharp knife with the long black handle that was on the desk at the I.R.C. today located at 407 E. Washington Street, where a known man from Ohio is working using an alias name.

Regards, ( hahahaha :/ )

Here is some recent compiled research exerpts about what is being done in Africa about AIDS...

Hey dude - I want you to play fair - or else!!
 Bill Gates, from Bay Village, Ohio became known as a US government antagonist when he and his then wife Melinda were in Algeria racketeering AIDS victims and did not then bring humanitarian aid.  Below are recent articles written about what is going on in African countries to help now.  There are many Africans in Columbus, Ohio from all countries of Africa who are interested in this topic.  Gates was a well known person at the time, and this old behaviour could be a reason for African unrest in the United States in certain areas.

AIDS in Africa

3.  The quest for an AIDS treatment that the poor world can afford may have to offend some rich-world sensibilities

Sep 25th 1997
from the print edition

FEW diseases have been as politicised as AIDS. And in few other cases is political correctness such a danger to the disease’s victims. In recent weeks, trials of a treatment designed to minimise the risk of mothers’ passing HIV on to their infants have been criticised ferociously. The New England Journal of Medicine has likened these trials to the grotesque “Tuskegee” experiments that started in the 1930s, when poor black Americans infected with syphilis were deliberately left untreated. Many demand that the new research be stopped. Strong as their case may seem, they are wrong.

The story begins three years ago, with one of the first significant breakthroughs in the fight against HIV. When pregnant women with HIV were fed the drug zidovudine (more popularly known as AZT), the likelihood that they would pass the virus on to their babies fell from one in four to one in 12. But the regimen is complex and expensive, and therefore beyond the reach of the majority of women who risk infecting their infants with AIDS. Most of these women live in poor countries. In some such countries, nearly one pregnant woman in three carries HIV. Transmission from the mother—during pregnancy, delivery or breast feeding—is the leading cause of AIDS among children. Finding a treatment that might be applicable in these countries is therefore of the highest importance. But how?

In the trials that have caused such controversy, groups of women are being given various experimental treatments. In time-honoured fashion, their progress is being compared with control groups of women who are not receiving it. But here is the difficulty. In the rich world, the control groups would consist of women receiving the best existing alternative, in order for researchers to determine whether the new treatment offered any improvement over the old one. In the trials at issue, the women in the control groups are receiving a placebo. That is, they are receiving no treatment at all.

Add to this the fact that the trials are being paid for in America, but conducted in Africa, and you may think you have the ingredients of a scandal. Since no American woman with AIDS would knowingly take a placebo when a reasonably effective alternative was already available, why should any woman in Africa have to? The answer is simple, and cruel. In many poor parts of the world, the existing drug is at present too expensive to use. So the relevant question is not whether a new treatment is better than the existing alternative, but whether it is better than no treatment. That, rightly, is what the trials have been designed to discover.

To be sure, human subjects in clinical trials everywhere are vulnerable to abuse. In poor countries, where the standard of education is liable to be lower, and where doctors may wield undue power and authority, the danger is greater. There is a case for extra vigilance to protect the interests and rights of the participants in clinical trials. Without question, any woman involved in such a trial should be a volunteer who understands that she may be a member of the control group, and that she may therefore be given a placebo instead of a real medicine.

Nothing could be more natural than to sympathise with the plight of women who are infected with HIV, pregnant, and therefore liable to pass the virus on to their unborn children. The notion of doing nothing to help them is repugnant. But the repugnant fact of AIDS is that the promising drug therapies now becoming available are still far too expensive for poor countries to afford. The trials in Africa are an attempt to help. It would be mad to stop them simply in order to give people in the rich world more peace of mind.
4.  Aiding Africa

SIR – The manic frenzy about increasing aid to Africa seems grossly out of proportion (“The $25 billion question”, July 2nd). As donor countries have closed their key trade and labour markets, depriving developing countries of $500 billion a year to earn their own way in the world, aid expenditures probably have a greater net benefit to donor economies. Returning a fraction of that loss as aid assuages guilt and provides the means for continued interference in the developing world.

Moreover, aid in the recipient countries merely restores a tiny fraction of what is misappropriated from exchequers by local politicians and governments. Africa experiences capital flight of up to $90 billion a year and the external stock of capital held by Africa's political elites is $700 billion-800 billion. Along with missing billions in export earnings from oil, gas, diamonds and other minerals that are not openly accounted for, it then becomes unclear if Africa suffers from a poverty trap because of a lack of money.
A closer look at Africa's human-resource and immigration policies and the way in which African governments have driven out human capital that they desperately need because it happens to be visibly non-African, may provide a more meaningful, if politically incorrect, answer to what ails Africa than aid.

A correlated current issue that may have to do with unrest in regard to AIDS in Africa has to do with US policy in regard to strip mining which depleted diamonds from African countries, and oil.  Minneapolis, Minnesota now has a group of United States black dissidents who dress in Somalian clothes to be part of the African OPEC or Clark Oil become rich.  Clark Oil has no grant funding available for any purpose.  This is another conglomerate issue whereas the people who are part of massive wealth need to be responsible.

"The I.R.C. - 400 E. Washington Street; Greensboro, NC" provides resources by Kimberly Koerber-Bauer-Koerber

The new I.R.C. located at 400 E Washington Street, Greensboro, NC is a great place to get things done like, have lunch, apply for employment, socialize with other homeless people, read a book, get your clothes washed, and get Job Skills training.  The IRC was in a farther west side location before moving to where they currently are, and a blue school bus, which was part of the mission driven organization at the time, labeled "Last Chance Ministries" used to take people from Weaver House, 305 West Lee Street, Greensboro, NC  27406 to this other location, which was a church, that resembled an elementary school, with a few classrooms and a small computer lab upstairs.  The back of the 'church/school is apartment housing and a Social Services agency that provides clothing, food, housing referrals from time to time, and is its own organization.  The I.R.C. part now branched off, and had volunteers painting the agency inside, two Saturdays ago, and has now been open for about two weeks.  The agency seems to be operating as a Social Services Catchment type of agency - without clients having to wait in line to see a Public Health / Psychiatric Nurse, see someone from Social Services, or use the phone.  So far, the place has some clients, who appear to go there on a regular basis.  The staff is somewhat aloof and it is hard to become a volunteer there, while still on the client list needing services. 

Someone donated all kinds of books to The IRC also, which they did not seem to have at their old location.  The I.R.C. also allows people to sleep in chairs there, rather than throwing people out for trespassing or loitering.  This seems to be a big problem here in Greensboro, for some reason, because it seems when taking a walk, every other building has "NO TRESPASSING" signs posted.  Homeless people really have no choice but to loiter in man cases, and if not in a public shelter with no home or job or schedule, become tired, and are often victimized by the "hee haw" crowd which consists of many types.  Whether the IRC will continue to be an agency that does the right thing for the people will be revealed as time goes on.  It was a great thing to be here in Greensboro, NC during the time that a new agency opened it's doors, although I did not volunteer to paint or participate in the opening party as a client of services here.

"Political Launches from hell and their coverups: When People in High Places do foolish things" by Kimberly Koerber-Bauer-Koerber

The following is a story from a particular link:
Busch Beer Heir Is in the Headlines After Woman Dies Mysteriously at His Home

Footprints in the sand

Published December 24, 2010
Associated Press

Print Email Share Comments (64) Text Size ST. LOUIS – For generations, the Busches of St. Louis were the first family of American beer-making, the city's most devoted boosters, and bearers of the most famous name in town. But they have also been touched by scandal, tragedy and allegations of reckless behavior.

Now the Busch name is in the headlines again, this time after an aspiring young model was found dead in the gated home of August Busch IV, the former Anheuser-Busch CEO and heir to the Budweiser fortune. The death is under investigation.

The woman, Adrienne Nicole Martin, was Busch's girlfriend and there was "absolutely nothing suspicious" about her death, said Busch's attorney, Art Margulis.

The 27-year-old woman was dead when police and paramedics responded to a 911 call from Busch's estate Sunday in Huntleigh, a wealthy St. Louis suburb. St. Louis County forensic administrator Suzanne McCune said there were no signs of trauma or illness, and an overdose was among the possible causes of death.

Busch IV, 46, joined the family business in the mid-1980s and worked his way up. He was chief of marketing when the brewer rolled out many of its most popular TV ads, including the Budweiser frogs.

When Busch IV took over as chief executive upon his father's retirement in 2006, Anheuser-Busch owned roughly half the U.S. beer market thanks to its two giant brands, Budweiser and Bud Light. Two years later, Anheuser Busch Cos. was sold to Belgian company InBev in a $52 billion deal that created the world's largest brewer.

With the merger, Busch IV turned out to be the last in a long line of Busches to run the company, whose roots dated to the mid-1800s. He is a member of the InBev board but no longer has any role in day-to-day operations.

"He had a reputation as a bit of a risk taker," said Terry Ganey, a veteran journalist who co-wrote the 1991 book "Under the Influence: The Unauthorized Story of the Anheuser-Busch Dynasty." ''That is demonstrated by the fact that he drove powerboats, motorcycles, jet planes and helicopters and participated in sports that could do him some physical harm. But as an executive, I think he operated in his father's shadow."

InBev maintained St. Louis as its U.S. headquarters after the merger, but many in St. Louis felt the region had lost an icon that rivaled the Gateway Arch and baseball's Cardinals — which used to be owned by the Busch family.

"Rightly or wrongly, it will always be recalled that he was the CEO when the company was sold," Ganey said.

Trouble seemed to follow Busch well before he got out of the family business.

In 1983, Busch IV, then a 20-year-old University of Arizona student, left a bar near Tucson, Ariz., with a 22-year-old woman. His black Corvette crashed, and the woman, Michele Frederick, was killed. Busch was found hours later at his home. He suffered a fractured skull and claimed he had amnesia. After a seven-month investigation, authorities declined to press charges, citing a lack of evidence.

Two years later, Busch IV was acquitted by a jury in St. Louis on assault charges resulting from a police chase that ended with an officer shooting out a tire on his Mercedes-Benz.

Undercover narcotics officers began the chase after Busch's car nearly struck them, police said at the time. Busch was also accused of trying to run down two detectives. He said he was fleeing because he thought the unmarked police car carried would-be kidnappers.

Margulis said Busch and Martin had dated for about a year. In an undated posting on the modeling websites, she wrote that she was studying to be an art therapist and aspired to help children. She wrote that she had worked for Hooters and participated in swimsuit competitions.

"I really would like to do beer advertising!" she wrote. "Since I have only just begun I can't wait for my exciting times ahead!"

The Busch family has a long history of commitment to the St. Louis area through philanthropy and community involvement. The brewery's world-famous Budweiser Clydesdales were an opening-day tradition at the Cardinals' ballpark, which is still called Busch Stadium.

The family owns the popular Grant's Farm, a 281-acre wildlife preserve in St. Louis County. Tours are free and visitors can see the home of the Clydesdales. Over the years, the brewery donated water and other items to help victims of virtually every major natural disaster.

There have been other troubles for members of the Busch family.

In 1934, August Busch Sr., who was president of the company, killed himself with a revolver at Grant's Farm. In 1976, Peter Busch, the son of August Busch Jr. and half-uncle of August Busch IV, shot and killed a friend, David Leeker. Peter Busch claimed the gun went off accidentally as he tossed it on a bed. He pleaded guilty to manslaughter and received five years' probation.

Associated Press writer Bill Draper in Kansas City, Mo., contributed to this report.

Birds on a Wire With Information
General George Bush came through our area in Wooster with his entourage right before being reelected for the second time.  We as a family then lived in Wooster, Ohio.  I will never forget the show that they put on, including multicolored umbrellas being opened all along Akron Road as we, my ex-husband Jerry L. Bauer in his wheelchair, me, and our son Justin Bauer stood at the end of our driveway and watched the procession pass by.  Our relative Ken Bauer, Jerry's brother was there also, but was in his van, not in plain sight.
General Bush won.  
I am suspicious of these high level political launches anyhow, and what occurs in them.  Jerry routinely spoke with someone on the phone, which was part of his job as a Quality Engineer, named "Busch".  "Busch breweries in Columbus, Ohio were shut down for several years - before the General George Busch win and then the brewery which is in "The Continent" area of Columbus, Ohio changed over to Budweiser.  Someone then reported that the Budweiser Clydesdales were stolen.  The empty and half empty bottles of Colt 45 beer found in my house, I think, thanks to General George Busch and the beer industry, now may correlate with some kind of a political launch to people paying attention.
Magical beer in front of a blue patterned backdrop
There was already a big problem with drunken drivers and alcoholism.
There was already a huge problem with deaths correlated with alcoholism.  The article that is incorporated into this may be related to all of this also, but such is not stated.  
Cover ups, and irresponsibility marked the political areas always.  George Bush was criticized for being a war monger, but I never heard this beer correlation argument before, which also makes sense on a grand scale.
When important people of high political stature do things, why do they not think of this as "Development" and as something that is an example to be followed.... be continued.  

"Shopping for Mental Health Therapy and a Scam", by Kimberly Koerber-Bauer-Koerber

All about another destructive trend

There is a current story on NPR about shopping for a psychotherapist to avoid lemons:
The story can also be heard.  I listened to this story carefully, but they forgot to add the information needed that has to do with a systemic change in the past two or three decades, coupled with insurance fraud.  The point is that rather that treat people who have mental health issues, the thing to do seems to be to give the person a diagnosis, then find a way to engage in fraud activity to "sell" the person's police or intelligence id to a crook in the United States.  If the person complains about things that occur to them, like cars being torched for instance, or hears voices, they are just nuts...hahahahah, say the crooks.  This is one part of a United States based intelligence program which defrauded many, many people and ripped off a lot of money that the federal Government and states did not have - dubbed as 'project hee-haw".

The thing is that crooks who engaged in ignorant behaviour and urban blight before were not as easy to find - until they got into the United States intelligence system.  There is no Federal hub Project in the works that I am aware of even now to counter this because hahahaha the police are all crazy also and there is no hahahaha money to pay DEA or The Justice Department particularly in affected, but ignored states like Ohio. 

Why did this type of 'disability' become a popular ray to racketeer people?
1.  During the course of a lifetime, virtually everyone at some point in time suffers from mental illness due to extraneous events occurring around them over which the victim has no control.
2.  Mental Illness is treated by using 'talk therapy' and at times expensive, addictive drugs.
3.  People in general have the need for a 'quick' or 'easy fix' as opposed to going through the process and
trying to overcome whatever obstacle caused the problem to begin with.
4.  Going on this kind of 'disability' is quick money, and is easy after the waiting period is over.
5.  Crooks are able to make all kinds of excuses for this - ranging from "this is part of 'POLITICS" to
"The Person can be talked into anything" to "We needed the money for something else" to "Fill in the blank ____________________"
6.  People on disability do not have to work.
7.  This was an excuse to rip off businesses and call it something else
8.  This is another part of Urban decay or Urban Decline
9.  The crooks were bored and broke and though they were so clever hahahahaha  
10. It would be interesting to see a research study about this done in the American Journal of Psychiatry.
