Detroit Science Center: An Open Letter to Senator Shelby on the future of our children

As a native born Detroiter, I use my newsletter to try and tell people about some of the great things that are going on in Detroit. We have a great city and many free opprotunities to experience our treasured institutions.

One of my favortie places to visit is the Detroit Science Center, where even a cheapy like me has paid for a yearly membership for the past five years. Today the Detroit Science Center published an open letter to Senator Shelby, who has held up the bailout of the Big Three. As we think about the future of our city, and the legacy that we will leave our children, I thought I would share the letter with all of you...
J.R. Harper

Shelby's efforts discourage future engineers
An Open Letter to Senator Richard Shelby

Dear Senator Shelby:

You must be quite proud of your success in spearheading the collapse of government loans to help the American Automobile Industry get through this period of extraordinary financial chaos and uncertainty. As the head of a major science museum that exists to inspire young people to pursue careers in technology, I have an important question to ask you: What do I say to America's future engineers?

How do I inspire children to pursue a career if they see the best educated most accomplished engineers in America standing in an unemployment line?

What do I say to the 486 students who will begin attending the Science and Math Middle School at the Detroit Science Center next September when they watch America's largest employers of engineers disappear?

Asking for your support of the American automobile companies was not about nostalgia for their past glories. True, they created the American middle class, revolutionized personal mobility worldwide and enabled us to be the "Arsenal of Democracy" that powered the Allied victory in World War II. Engineers like Walter Chrysler and Charles Kettering shaped an industry that shaped the modern world. But Henry Ford himself said "History is bunk" so let's focus on today's accomplishments.

Engineers from General Motors, Ford and Chrysler are leading the world in the development of battery technology, fuel cells, vehicle safety technology and sophisticated on- board microprocessing that puts NASA and Boeing to shame.

American automotive process engineers have enhanced basic Japanese production techniques and quality systems to create the country's most integrated high volume production network of assembly plants and multi-tiered suppliers.

American automotive engineers continue to pioneer the use of sophisticated design software to enable the rapid prototyping of parts and the virtual designing of new models.

The Department of Defense aggressively adapts breakthrough American automotive technology to battlefield communications, logistics and warfare.

Yesterday's "Arsenal of Democracy" is truly today's "Arsenal of technology. Isn't that worth saving, Senator Shelby?

While the great engineering minds of Silicon Valley fret over packing more songs into an Ipod or downloading television shows faster, the engineers and scientists of the automotive industry are searching for the technology to reduce America's reliance on foreign oil and the world's consumption of fossil fuels.

Senator Shelby, please help me explain to my museum's young visitors why your home State of Alabama spent billions of dollars to entice foreign companies while encouraging the demise of three companies that account for 12% of all the corporate research and development in America.

Help me understand why a State consistently ranked lowest in education quality and number of engineering degrees awarded feels compelled to eliminate the nation's largest concentration of professional engineers.

I know you don't believe Michigan's most important industry deserves help. Perhaps you still believe that Michigan's most important assets, our children, deserve some answers to the questions that will determine their future.
Kevin F. Prihod
President and CEO

Panera Bread Offers Free Holiday Recipe Idea

Panera Bread is offering a free holiday recipe idea to all you great cooks looking for a quick and yummy addition to your holiday meal. Included below is a recipe for Cranberry Butternut Bruschetta. The photo of the completed dish looks delicious!

An American seasonal version of an Italian favorite


½ cup dried cranberries
2 tablespoons orange juice
¼ cup walnut pieces, diced into ¼" pieces
1 small butternut squash 2 tablespoons butter ¼ cup finely minced shallots (or onions)
1 clove finely minced garlic pinch of cinnamon
pinch of sage leaves (optional) pinch of nutmeg pinch of salt pinch of cracked black pepper


Preparation: Pre-heat oven to 375°F. Slice the whole grain baguette across to create coin-shaped slices about ¼" thick and place on a cookie sheet. Brush each slice lightly with olive oil and bake for five minutes or until the bread is lightly toasted.

Cut the squash from blossom end to stem. Wrap one half in plastic and save for another time. Using a tablespoon, remove the seeds from remaining squash. Spread 1 tablespoon of butter over the surface of the cut portion of the squash and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Place the squash into a baking dish, cut side down with about 2 tablespoons of water and tightly cover the pan with aluminum foil. Cook the squash for 1 hour or until fork tender and the skin is evenly wrinkled. After cooling slightly, separate the meat of the squash from the skin and set aside.

Sauté 1 tablespoon of butter and all of the shallots or onion and garlic until translucent but not caramelized. Add the squash to the pan and slowly cook the mixture for about 10 minutes to evaporate some moisture and intensify the flavors. Season the mixture with cinnamon, nutmeg, sage, salt and pepper to taste.

Blend the squash mixture until smooth and thick. Remove from the blender and set the spread aside until service.

Garnish: Simply combine the dried cranberries, orange juice and walnut pieces in a bowl and allow to stand for 30 minutes before service time.

Service: Spread a small amount (about ½ teaspoon) of the squash mixture onto each slice of whole grain bread using a teaspoon. Top with about one teaspoon of the cranberry garnish and place on a decorative serving platter. Serve while crostini is crisp and fresh.

HEADS UP - Detroit College Promise

Group plans DPS college aid
Jennifer Mrozowski / The Detroit News

A budding nonprofit organization hopes to provide full college scholarships to every Detroit Public Schools graduate, starting with a pilot program for the class of 2009 at one school to be announced this fall.

Organizers of the Detroit College Promise, modeled after the Kalamazoo Promise scholarship program, are seeking pledges from individuals and corporations to help fund the program and create an endowment, according to executive director Nat Pernick.
The scholarship, when fully funded, would be offered to every Detroit Public School high school graduate who has attended a school in the district for four consecutive years and completes a one-page application form, said Pernick, a Huntington Woods pathologist. The nonprofit organization, which has $40,000 in pledges already, will need $500,000 to fund the pilot program, Pernick said.

(Click here to read the entire story on

Program Highlights: Scholarships for all

Who would qualify? Every Detroit Public School student who has attended high school for four consecutive years and lived in the city for at least four years. How much would students get? That depends. The scholarship benefit increases the longer a student attends school in the district, ranging from 65 percent of tuition and mandatory fees for 4 years of attendance to 100 percent of tuition for 13 years. Students who want to apply will have to complete a one-page application.

Can I apply now? Not yet.

FREE College Info: Know How 2 Go

Young people in all socio-economic groups have college aspirations. In fact, eight out of 10 expect to attain a bachelor’s degree or higher, according to the U.S. Department of Education. But despite their aspirations, low-income students and those who are the first in their families to pursue higher education are severely underrepresented on college campuses. Studies show these students often lack the guidance they need to prepare for postsecondary education.

In order to turn these students' college dreams into action-oriented goals, the American Council on Education, Lumina Foundation for Education and the Ad Council launched the KnowHow2GO campaign in January 2007. This multiyear, multimedia effort includes television, radio and outdoor public service advertisements (PSAs) that encourages 8th through 10th graders to prepare for college using four simple steps.
The Four Steps to College
· Be a pain – Let everyone know that you’re going to college and need their help.
· Push yourself – Working a little harder today will make getting into college even easier.
· Find the right fit – Find out what kind of school is the best match for you and your career goals.
· Put your hands on some cash - If you think you can't afford college, think again. There's lots of aid out there.

To ensure that students and adult mentors who connect with the powerful messages of the PSA campaign can easily find real-time, on-the-ground assistance, we have built and continue to support a strong grassroots network of partners. To date, more than 15 state and regional coalitions and 60 national partners have signed onto the campaign.
