“Kennedy” is the center, physically and perhaps morally, of PUC-Rio.br, the “Harvard of South America” and the lead Jesuit institution in Brazil. Working with a diplomat, “Kevin” at the US Consulate at Av Presidente Wilson 147, I am in the process of developing a MOOC based on americanenglish.state.gov to be sent out to eductemagis.org in order to, as we Jesuit alumni say, ad majorem dei gloriam (AMDG). My supervisor there at PUC is Padre Paul Schweitzer, SJ, a Jesuit that Hildete put me in contact with some years ago after a meal in Leblon at Dias Ferras, one of the best streets with Boteca Belmonte, and Academia Cachaca, among other places to have a drink. The above link to the JFK World War 2 photo archive has immense cultural significance in America now because:

  1. Joe Biden is our second Catholic President
  2. We are in a time of great power competition as reflected in SECDEF Mattis’ National Defense Strategy (Mattis was my boss in the US Government)
  3. Fellow HR alumni like Owen West, HR 91, Stanford GSB 2000, are similar to JFK (Owen was one of my HR classmates)
