A very special broadcast – as we pay tribute to Pittsburgh Steelers’ Chairman Dan Rooney – who died, on April 13th , at the age of 84.

Our guests include:

Maggie Jones Patterson – Professor of Journalism & Multimedia Arts, at the McAnulty College & Graduate School of Liberal Arts, at Duquesne University – and co-author of “Rooney: A Sporting Life” —  the story of Pittsburgh Steelers’ founder Arthur J. Rooney – father of Dan Rooney.

The book was co-written with Patterson’s husband, Rob Ruck – Professor of History, at the University of Pittsburgh  – who also joins us. (a third co-author, Michael J. Weber, is deceased)

Jim Lamb – President of the Ireland Institute of Pittsburgh, and Honorary Consul of Ireland, in the Pittsburgh area – and Michael Bartley – Executive Vice-President of Steeltown Entertainment, and award-winning broadcast journalist, for his work, for WQED Multimedia – will share their personal memories of Dan Rooney, and his contributions to Ireland, and the people of that country.

We’ll have additional tributes, from Northern Ireland, from Daniel Crozier —  an Ireland Institute graduate, and television producer for RTE One, in Newry – and from members of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra.

On this week’s program:

Point Park University takes another step, towards expansion of its business program, for students, by announcing a re-naming of its business school. Paul Hennigan, Ed.D. – Point Park University President – and I-T & Cooperative Education Student Celina DiPietro – join Jon Delano, to discuss the Rowland School of Business – and new opportunities, for business students at Point Park to work, for salary, on the job – while also attending classes.

Then, the merger of two, local engineering firms – means new strength, in solving problems, related to infrastructure, wastewater, and the environment, in our area – and across the world. Our guests include Ted Lyon – Managing Director of Bulk Metals, for Hatch – and Robert Agbede – Vice-Chairman of Hatch USA – and leader of Chester Engineers – which is joining forces, with Hatch.

Finally, the public relations fallout continues, for United Airlines – after one of its passengers was dragged by police, down the aisle of a United flight, traveling from Chicago to Louisville. The incident – widely recorded on cell phone video, and shown, in social media – was triggered, when the passenger refused to give up his seat – to make room for employees of a partner airline.

We’ll talk with Robert Oltmanns, APR – President of the OPR Group, LLC – a Pittsburgh-based, public relations firm, with experience in crisis management – about how United mishandled the case – and how they can recover the public’s confidence.

Please join Jon Delano, for this timely broadcast – Sunday morning@6:30AM. – on “The Sunday Business Page”,  on KDKA-TV.

  1. In Latin American countries Amerindians refers to the indigenous tribal populations, not the polyglot Spanish, African, Indian (from India), Italian, Portuguese, etc majority populations that are heavily mixed.

  2. According to the 2010 US Census, blacks are 43 percent of the population of Philadelphia, while whites make up roughly 36 percent of the population. “Hispanics” (Amerindians) make up roughly 12 percent of the population.

    The one beautiful fact of the Philadelphia Police Department data is they break out the racial stats of both victim and suspect for homicides and nonfatal shootings without lumping Amerindians in with whites.

    Let’s get to the numbers!

    There were 280 homicides in Philadelphia in 2015:
    76.7 percent of the victims were black
    15.7 percent of the victims were Amerindian
    5.7 percent of the victims were white
    There were 1,236 nonfatal shooting victims in Philadelphia in 2015:
    83.9 percent of the victims were black
    12.4 percent of the victims were Amerindian
    2.8 percent of the victims were white
    Of known suspects, the race of the offenders in the 2015 homicides in Philadelphia (representing 105 of the 280 cases, because of the propensity for the black community to protect black criminals):
    81.9 percent of the suspects were black
    9.5 percent of the suspects were Amerindian
    7.6 percent of the suspects were white (if the clearance rate for homicides were higher in Philadelphia, the percent of white suspects would drop significantly with 62.5% of homicides lacking a suspect)
    To summarize: 91.4 percent of known homicide suspects/offenders in 2015 Philadelphia were non-white (the number would be higher if the black community would “snitch”).

    Of known suspects, the race of the offenders in the 2015 nonfatal shootings in Philadelphia (representing only 238 of the 1236 cases):
    85.7 percent of the suspects were black
    10.6 percent of the suspects were Amerindian
    2.5 percent of the suspects were white
    To summarize: 96.3 percent of known nonfatal shooting suspects/offenders in 2015 Philadelphia were non-white (the number would be higher if the black community would “snitch”). Roughly 81 percent of nonfatal shooting cases in Philadelphia went unsolved in 2015

    Only 19 percent of the nonfatal shootings had suspects, compared to 37.5 percent of the homicides. If each nonfatal shooting/homicide had a suspect (offender), how much of the percentage do you think would be nonwhite?

    The “no snitching” culture runs deep in black/brown Philadelphia, keeping violent black/brown people on the streets to prey on the law-abiding and artificially keep down the already high black/brown crime rates as identified by yearly released Philadelphia Police Department Murder/Shooting Analysis (because almost all of the white crime is domestic disputes easily solved – whose offender is not protected by community members – by detectives).

    Gun crime has a color. It isn’t white.
