Meet Jay Mahoney – 2015 Kenneth S. Neal Award Winner
Jay Mahoney was nominated for the Kenneth S. Neal award by a Rindge Avenue Upper Campus (RAUS) parent for his inspiring work as a 7th grade science teacher and his willingness to take on the hard work of coordinating the RAUS NetPals program. The work of running a successful NetPals program starts with successful teaching, an ability which was recognized last year when Jay received the Curious Teacher Award from the Cambridge School Department and the Cambridge Science Festival, and, over the years, by hundreds of Jay’s students. When asked what they think about Mr. Mahoney, students say, “I have always loved science because Mr. Mahoney is so enthusiastic about science. He makes science funny and fun. He is the best at explaining lessons!”
With degrees from the University of Lowell and UMass Boston, Jay Mahoney started his teaching career as a social studies teacher. Then, at the suggestion of the principal of the Martin Luther King School where he began his teaching career in Cambridge, Jay became certified as a science teacher, and he has been a science teacher ever since. “It was the best thing that could have happened to me,” says Jay. “Students love the hands-on nature of science, the fact that it is a “doing” subject which they can really get involved in.” Jay also feels that students need exposure to STEM learning and STEM careers, that if we don’t encourage STEM learning, we are doing a disservice to the current generation who may be ill-prepared for the jobs of the future.
Jay’s involvement with NetPals goes back to the days when the program was situated in the Peabody School’s sixth grade. His role was to organize the annual spring Science Fair to which the NetPals were invited. Once the program was moved to grade 7 in the Rindge Avenue Upper Campus, Jay became the lead NetPals teacher, incorporating the email component of the program into his science curriculum and taking over all aspects of program management, including training the volunteers, organizing two school-based events – a math breakfast and the Science Fair lunch – for 180 adults and students, and supervising the flow of emails between 90 mentor/student matches. Like the RAUC mother of three sons who nominated him, Jay understands the value of his students having a relationship with a professional adult who is not a family friend and who takes an interest in them and makes them feel special.
NetPals is not the only connection Jay has had with CSV. Jay also collaborated with CSV to coordinate regular before-school tutorial sessions for the Achievement Via Individual Determination (AVID) program. The goal of AVID was to prepare middle school students who needed a little extra help to reach their full potential for high school and post secondary opportunities. Jay passed on his passion for inspiring students to think about college and career connections to the tutors he trained, including members of Harvard’s Wrestling team and Women’s Ice Hockey team.
CSV was delighted to honor Jay with the Kenneth S. Neal award and looks forward to many more years of collaboration on NetPals and beyond.
Obituary for James E. Mahoney
James E. Mahoney, age 67 passed away at his home in Newton on August 8, 2020 due to complications related to a bicycle accident in July 2019.
A beloved father, husband, brother, and friend, Jim had a long career at Bank of America. He was a loving and devoted husband to his wife Margaret “Peggy” McLoughlin. His great joy was his three children Caitria, Jake, and Gracia. Jim loved finding creative ways to spend time with each of them. He also was a close brother to
his seven brothers and sisters, finding time to keep up to date with all of them. As his wife Peggy often said being with Jim was like standing in the sunshine.
Jim was born in Newton on September 7, 1952 one of the eight children of the late John J. and Mary F. Mahoney. He graduated from Xavier High School in Concord Class of 1970. Following high school he graduated from Colby College in Maine in 1974 and went on to receive a masters degree from Harvard University in Public Health Policy.
Jim Mahoney was the definition of the man in the room where it happens; often quietly and always adeptly merging strategy, policy and news during his 25 years at Bank of America and its predecessor FleetBoston. During his tenure, he led public policy, strategy, issues management, media relations, and communications globally. More recently he concentrated his efforts on some of the key public policy issues facing Bank of America, both locally and internationally. Key among them was his particularly strong leadership in the company’s $125 billion environmental initiative, supporting clean energy and lower carbon financing solutions and delivering on the bank’s environmental commitment years ahead of schedule, only to help establish a new $300 billion goal. Influenced by his years in California, working for Governor Jerry Brown in urban and environmental affairs, he applied that early knowledge, and his considerable talent and wisdom to help Bank of America form key partnerships with Stanford, Harvard, Georgetown, The World Economic Forum, and partnerships within the company and elsewhere seeking innovative solutions to low carbon financing and global health care issues. Those partnerships endure.
His previous experience as District Director for Congressman Joseph P. Kennedy II, and as Secretary of Federal Reserve Bank of Boston, burnished his expertise in public policy and government affairs. A true “newsie” Jim understood both what was newsworthy and how to make news. A consensus builder, Jim was pivotal during many of the bank acquisitions by FleetBoston and later at Bank of America as well as through the depths of the financial crisis. Jim steered the public policy teams at the state, federal, and international levels, always called upon to demonstrate to the bank’s many constituencies a firm commitment to the company’s strategy of responsible growth. Jim was prescient in his ability to identify the interests of the company in a way that helped also address larger societal challenges—as evidenced by the environmental and sustainability work he led.
Jim was sought out both inside the company and across the industry as sage counsel, which he could always be relied upon to deliver with humor, grace, and humanity.
Mahoney was a board member of the National Urban League, served on the Board of Directors of the New England Council, was a member of the management committee for Stanford University’s Global Climate & Energy Project, and served on the board of the U. S. Chamber of Commerce Center for Capital Markets. Jim was a Trustee of the University of Massachusetts from 1999 to 2005. He was inducted into the PR News Hall of Fame in 2019.
Jim’s commitment to be a man for and with others led him to recently become interested in substance use disorder counseling. He earned a counseling certification from UMass Boston. This led him to work with men with addiction at the Suffolk County House of Correction (South Bay). Jim told his family that the evenings he spent with the men at the jail after a long workday at Bank of America gave him perspective and energized him to do even more.
In addition to his wife and his three children, Jim is survived by his brothers John, Thom, and Dan; his sisters Mary Lou, Jane, Nancy, and Cate. He also leaves stepsons Luke (Mara), Ryan, and William McLoughlin, stepdaughter Clare Overmann ( Mark) who were to him an enthusiastic fan club. He leaves seventeen nieces and nephews and eight grandnieces and nephews. He is survived by his former wife Patricia Leydon, the mother of his children.
The family is deeply grateful to the many nurses, physicians, therapists, and aides who lovingly cared for Jim and our family during the last year at Mass General and Brigham Neuro ICU, Spaulding Cambridge 4th Floor, and Spaulding Brighton. The family particularly wants to express its gratitude to caregiver and friend Peter Babi for his loving care to Jim. The words of Irish poet Seamus Haney reflect well the challenges of Jim’s last year: “Even if the hopes you started out with are dashed, hope has to be maintained.”
In keeping with the way he lived, Jim’s final act of kindness was to donate his corneas so others might have the gift of sight.
In lieu of flowers donations in Jim’s memory may be made to The Equal Justice Initiative at 122 Commerce St., Montgomery, AL 36104 (https://support.eji.org/give/153413/#!/donation/checkout)
or the Mary Ann Brett Food Pantry at St. Theresa of Calcutta Parish, 800 Columbia Road, Dorchester, MA 02125 http://dorchestercatholic.org/donate/food-pantry/

His funeral Mass will be livestreamed at 11:00 am on Wednesday, August, 12, 2020. Livestream link – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fzx9pQfqCuI&feature=youtu.be .

Bank of America executive James Mahoney dies from injuries sustained in 2019 bike accident
James E. Mahoney, a senior Bank of America executive whose extensive career spanned the worlds of business, government, and politics, died Saturday, the result of complications from injuries he sustained in a bicycle accident last year. He was 67.
Mahoney, an experienced cyclist, suffered a head injury after falling from his bike while riding with a friend in Weston in early July 2019.
“His wife, Peggy, his seven brothers and sisters, and three children will miss the sunshine that Jim brought into all of our lives,” said his brother John Mahoney.
Mahoney, who went by Jim, spent the past 25 years at Bank of America and its predecessor, FleetBoston Financial, most recently as executive vice president and global corporate strategy and public policy executive. During his tenure at the bank, the second-largest in the United States, he worked closely with vice chairman Anne Finucane and chief executive Brian Moynihan.
All three executives came from FleetBoston, which was acquired by North Carolina-based Bank of America in 2004, and they continued to live and primarily work in the Boston area even as the bank’s headquarters remained in Charlotte.
Mahoney was an influential behind-the-scenes player in the areas of public policy, strategy, and communications. Most recently he was an instrumental force behind the bank’s $300 billion program to finance clean-energy projects.
“Jim was one of those people who just made us better than we otherwise would be; he had a sense of the outside in, reading a situation as few could and ushering us through big opportunities as well as difficult times with wisdom, humor and great thinking. He led by standing with you,” Moynihan said in a statement.
Before entering the private sector, Mahoney served four years as chief spokesman for the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston under president Richard Syron.
Prior to the Boston Fed he worked in politics, volunteering for the unsuccessful 1980 presidential campaign of Jerry Brown, who was then governor of California, and then taking a job in Brown’s state office of appropriate technology, where he focused on environmental issues.
“He was an early volunteer, and he and his wife drove us all around New Hampshire and Wisconsin,” Brown said.
Mahoney later worked as an aide and spokesman for US Representative Joseph P. Kennedy II of Massachusetts.

90,000 JPMorgan issued a traveler card during the pandemic – Frank RG
The bank expects to attract customers with cashbacks up to 5%
What happened. The largest American credit card issuer JPMorgan Chase has presented a new credit card designed for travelers. The bank issues a travel card despite fears of a second wave of coronavirus worldwide.
More details. JPMorgan jointly with MasterCard introduced a new credit card for travelers and cashback lovers.The product launch is scheduled for September 14th.
The Freedom Flex credit card is free in service, cardholders will receive a cashback of 5% when buying tours under the Chase Ultimate Rewards program (bank loyalty program, also offers bonus points). Cardholders can receive a similar cashback for up to $ 1,500 in quarterly bonus categories – from grocery stores to streaming services.
Cashback in the amount of 3% the cardholder will receive in restaurants (including takeaway and delivery services) and for purchases in pharmacies.For all other purchases, the bank pays 1% cashback on this card.
Cardholders will also have access to the privileges of the Mastercard World Elite program. A similar free product, the Chase Freedom Unlimited card, was released by JPMorgan in 2016 in partnership with Visa.
Despite the sharp decline in travel during the pandemic, the bank expects to attract new clients who dream of future travel. “We wanted to release a product that would open up opportunities for people when they feel ready to return to travel,” BJ Mahoney, responsible for issuing Chase Freedom cards, explained to Bloomberg.
The new cards, according to Mahoney, will not overlap with another offering from JPMorgan – Sapphire cards, which cost from $ 95 to $ 550 a year. The bank offers premium bonuses for travel and restaurant services.
The product from JPMorgan appeared less than a week after its competitor in the capital card market, Capital One, cut credit card limits to reduce its risks amid a surge in unemployment and a general deterioration in the economic situation, Fox Business recalls.
Capital One is not the only supporter of this strategy. According to Credit Suisse, cited by Bloomberg, US banks sent 96 million credit card offers to their customers in July. This is 68% less than a year earlier.
Why do I need to know this. JPMorgan Traveler Map Case Shows Banks Responding Differently To The Virus Crisis. Some seek to reduce risks by shrinking their business, while others, on the contrary, are expanding product offerings in anticipation of a quick market recovery and attracting new customers after the pandemic ends.

90,000 Top 12 Live Music Bars in Seoul
Perhaps contrary to popular belief, the Korean music scene is not only composed of the world famous K-pop scene.Although the popularity of Korean pop music is growing at an exponential rate worldwide, the local Korean music scene is much more … shall we say, homemade? Indeed, South Korea is a country with many live music venues that offer live performances, food and alcoholic drinks. This list will help you find the best live music bars in Seoul in particular.
Most of them are jazz and indie locations, as these two genres are the most popular genres of music among young Koreans.However, if you are a music fan in general, you might want to check out our article on Seoul International Music Festival.
Best Music Bars in Seoul
For a brief introduction to the history of jazz music and its impact on the global community, jazz first appeared in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The first variations of what is now called jazz music were musical interpretations of American and English classical music that were intertwined with African and slave folk songs.Since then, jazz music has experienced at least two major waves or stages of development: the jazz era and post-war jazz.
In recent years, jazz music has spread throughout the world and has inspired many musicians from all walks of life and musical education, although some musicians are talented without prior musical education. Predictably, jazz music has penetrated the geographic boundaries of South Korea and left its mark on contemporary Korean culture.Nowadays, you can find many bars with live music in Seoul where you can enjoy a live music performance or two.
Boogie Woogie (부기 우기)
For musicians and music students, the name BoogieWoogie may sound familiar. Boogie-woogie is a genre of blues music that developed in African American communities in the 1870s and became popular in the 1920s.
Boogie Woogie, located near Itaewon, unlike other venues, offers live music every day of the week, including Friday, Saturday and Sunday.A big supporter of up-and-coming local bands, BoogieWoogie is one of the most popular live music bars in Seoul. It opens its doors and hosts many different types of musicians, spanning a range of musical genres: standard jazz, modern jazz, fusion jazz, funk, soul, hip hop beats and more. When you arrive, there is a group of talented musicians who can play different instruments, as well as a varied menu of food and drinks awaiting you. There is no entrance fee, but we encourage you to donate at least £ 5,000 to the performing bands.
To learn more about Boogie Woogie, check out their Instagram and Facebook pages!
Evans Club (글럽 에반스)
Another fantastic live music spot is Club Evans, located about 20 minutes from Hongdae Station. Like boogie woogie, Club Evans prides itself on its patronage of up-and-coming local bands, some of which include both Korean and foreign musicians. With an extensive drinks menu and an open balcony, Club Evans is the perfect place to visit with friends!

Wet asphalt in the light of lanterns
People got lost, it got colder on the street
How many days the rubber cuts through the puddles
There are drops in the shop window as if in our souls,
Smoke and slush, nobody needs rain.
No need to cry, but you are mostly loaded and clumsy
For a big dinner, who is faster, and there is no idea anymore than these
How boring it is sometimes on the old planet if you are with a working head
But you have to become yourself and fight if there is a fight,
And if you don’t see it, then you are blind.
For some, words are just lines of deception,
And I stand like a brute at the bar
Where is everything in such a hurry?
The cop burned luck with a wave of ksiva
It was snowing in the morning, or maybe I was dreaming
I was young and my blood was boiling,
Sergeant blew away the dust, the case was open
Yes, I believe that you will be there when my world turns into hell
It’s like a shooting gallery, but there are no rules
I’m not an idol, I just smelted
No longer (CHE?), it’s easier for someone
Where are you going? Who are you treating?
Not on the shoulder, but in the liver
While I am flying, I will be eternal
Forever this minus will be a burden, like a paperweight
Morally all in shit, a donkey at the bottom of the bottle
Not the same skills came over the years
And not for the cause of gray hair a beard, although for the cause
And now I’m not up to jokes, my head is open wide the door
Disrupt, mess, chills, blizzard
Distribute brother ra to the target
I opened this door and saw all of you
To whom success, who does not know what is in to add, and blasphemy, macho
Look not to vomit muchacho
I don’t know where and with whom in addition
Come on, bracho, take the muzla with you to the dacha
And there is text and white snow and a new ball
And it seems like a boy, but in head some problems
They are like a scanner, everything is hard, but nevertheless a scanner
And that picture, then harnessed very nicely,
I’m not fussy writing text, but so fucking
But still the lines, I’m not a prophet, but I know where the lope is
the smell of burnt rubber
eyes hurt from Vizina
often does not plow mo her soul is half
sometimes sick of this world
for us grass is like blood for a vampire
and everyday life is fucking past
we live in them lazily
someone does not know what is blamed
someone money power blinded
not just like that the dog howled
now I’m where I don’t catch a mobile
in one hour my boys are digging a grave
for those whose minds have left
look what you put in your mouth
fucking, better a couple of buns blew
you didn’t think I spat on my cap
and I won’t regret it
how I do not regret those who bring confusion to others
a cloying taste in the mouth
well, give me just a minute
show me the city where fucking does not solve the currency
where people wake up from salute salutes in the morning
I reward you with wise advice
our faces are visible only in the light of the moon
everyone who is next to me is insane
they do not need mountains of gold and azure birches
they believe in a reasonable alignment
the next winter is close
already from the scan pain in the temples
Celsius temperature is low
Moscow river is not so clean
not the same sketches on white sheets
we live in the wrong places
fear is no longer visible in the eyes
when I see Musar club swing
Respect to those who have never hit me in the groin

90,000 Amid political animosity, global digital tax deal postponed until mid-2021
An agreement on how Amazon and Google should be taxed globally has been delayed until the middle of next year, negotiators acknowledged on Monday.
Amid deep-seated political divisions over how to rewrite tax rules for the digital age, the clock is ticking to reach a global agreement and avoid a potential large-scale trade war as the economy hesitates towards recession due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Nearly 140 countries – from France to the United States to China – have spent years crafting digital tax proposals after several national governments took steps of their own to force some of the world’s largest tech companies to pay more into national coffers.
Agreement was expected by the end of 2020. But Pascal Saint-Amand, who heads the center for tax policy at the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), coordinating the negotiations, told reporters that the new rules are now likely to be adopted by June 2021.
A French official said major political divisions, especially over which companies should be included in the new regime and whether the rules will be binding, still need to be overcome before any deal is signed.
Paris and Washington, in particular, have repeatedly clashed their heads over how these digital taxes should be introduced, and several countries and regions, including the European Union, have warned that they will push their own unilateral plans if a global agreement cannot be reached.
“Nothing is agreed until everything is agreed,” Saint-Aman told reporters when the OECD released new details on digital tax negotiations on Monday.
He added that he was “half full” of hope of reaching an agreement by mid-2021, but said, “It’s not easy. Will we make it until mid-2021? I do not know. It depends on many factors, both technical and political. ”
Several countries, including France, the United Kingdom and Italy, have plans for internal digital taxation, but have agreed to delay the introduction of such levies to allow time for a global tax treaty.
The EU is also expected to return to potential plans to introduce its region-wide levy in March 2021, although the official told POLITICO that Brussels is likely to give the OECD-led negotiators more time if needed.
In Washington, where the November U.S. presidential election raised uncertainty over how the potentially Joe Biden-led administration would approach digital tax negotiations, leading legislators in Congress – on both sides of the political aisle – expressed their opposition to the internal digital tax plan of other countries.
The US Trade Representative is conducting several ongoing investigations into how several US international trading partners are imposing these charges, but has postponed billions of dollars in tariffs aimed at France and its digital tax rules until a global deal is reached.
“It is important that we make it clear that the French and other countries that go unilaterally and impose unfair discriminatory taxes, we are not going to put up with this and will have consequences,” said CJ Mahoney, Deputy US Trade Representative, at last online conference last week.
“The best way to prevent escalation is to make meaningful progress in negotiations with the OECD,” Mahoney said.
Two pillars, many problems
Finding a political compromise for next year can be tricky.
As part of its announcement on Monday, the OECD released updated proposals for two areas of its digital tax plans. These documents will be forwarded to the G20 finance ministers during their meeting on October 14, and then will be open for public consultation, probably by the end of the year.
The first, known as Pillar One, aims to determine how to tax companies’ digital activities where firms do not have a physical presence.The OECD proposes to target consumer-oriented companies with a significant global presence, in particular with revenues of at least € 750 million, and whose sales in each country reach a certain revenue threshold.
The second, or second, pillar introduces measures to ensure a minimum level of corporate taxation around the world.
Saint-Aman, an OECD official, said that while much of the details of these proposals have been worked out, there are still tough policy decisions ahead, including with regard to Washington’s efforts to make the entire future digital tax treaty optional.
Almost all other countries are in this position, but the negotiators acknowledged that any new global regime that did not include US support, especially when many of the world’s largest technology companies are American, would be inoperable.
When asked if Washington softened its stance on the so-called safe harbor principle or the idea of making such digital taxes optional, Saint Aman answered bluntly, “No,” he said.
Other sensitive political issues remain to be worked out.
European countries, in particular, are seeking to narrow the focus of the global regime solely to digital companies, while others, including the United States and China, want to expand this definition to a broader definition of consumer-oriented firms. Negotiators are also stuck on how much revenue a company needs to generate globally before being included in any proposed new deal.
Despite these unresolved issues, Saint Aman said the COVID-19 pandemic – a crisis that continues to plague national economies – has only sharpened minds to reach a global digital tax deal. He added that many governments were reluctant to return to companies transferring profits to low-tax jurisdictions when the coronavirus crisis eventually subsided.
A spokesman for the OECD acknowledged that ongoing negotiations, which were due to end this year, have been postponed due to the global health crisis, but said countries are still prepared to reach a compromise.
“The reason we have worked so hard and made so much progress is because the fundamentals exist, whether it takes a year or five years,” he said. “We will do our best to make this happen as soon as possible and as quickly as possible. It’s difficult, but it’s possible. ”
In early July, Charlize Theron told reporters that Netflix is actively working on a sequel to The Immortal Guard, and now the actress’s words have been confirmed. The project has found a director: the shooting will be headed by Victoria Mahoney, whose track record includes many series, including “You” and “My name is night.” In the world of cinema, the director was seriously talked about after she became the supporting director of the last “Star Wars”.
The details of the sequel have not yet been disclosed, but its text is already ready – for it was answered by Greg Ruka, the author of the original comics, which form the basis of the film, and the screenwriter of the first “Immortal Guard”.It should be assumed that in the sequel, the main characters will deal with Queen, Andy’s old friend, who miraculously freed herself from the iron maiden, and now, apparently, dreams of revenge.
In February last year, Paramount announced the start of work on the film Kill Them All (“Kill them all” *), based on the comic book of the same name. The Major seems to have found someone who can bring the graphic novel to the big screens.Victoria Mahoney, who worked as a supporting director on the set of the ninth episode of “Star Wars”, is in talks to lead the filming of the new project.
The action-thriller is described as a dedication to the action movies of the 90s and even somewhat resembles the Indonesian “Raid”. The main character is a killer who dreams of taking revenge on those who betrayed her. Together with a former cop, and now an alcoholic, she dreams of overthrowing one of Miami’s crime bosses. To get to his penthouse, the heroes have to go through 15 floors, where criminals, murderers, drug lords, mercenaries and even accountants are waiting for them, and kill them all.
