New Beginnings

Being septuagenarians, my wife, Judy, and I are in the final days of our lives. And yet, June 2019, marks an era of new beginnings for us.

Judy and I signed a lease effective June 1 for an retirement apartment home.

We are sayng good-bye to our decades long  home, a three bedroom ranch style house, is bittersweet. No more large house, no more large yard with a privacy fenced backyard. Also, no more yard work, no more house maintenance, no more grief and aggravation of repairs and other obligations that come with house ownership.

We are saying hello to a retirement apartment community that offers stress-free living and that has many amenities without all the responsibilities of home ownership.

Our monthly rent includes all utilities (electric, heat, water, garbage and cable TV).

The amenities of our apartment include:
Fully equipped kitchen
In-unit washer and dryer
Central air conditioning
Energy-saving appliances
Sliding glass doors leading to private patio
Walk-in shower
Emergency pull-cord system

The features of the 122 unit apartment community include:
High-quality senior living (55+) options
On-site beauty salon/barber shop
Community room with patio
Community activities and planned trips
Community lounge with fireplace
Fully handicapped-accessible
Centrally located elevator service
Wide, well-lit hallways with handrails
Secure building, TV-monitored entrance with controlled access
Fitness center
Indoor central mailbox system
Indoor trash rooms
Community family room with kitchen available for private gatherings
Sprinkler system throughout building
Smoke/CO detectors throughout building

With no more worries that come with owning and living in a house, we can start to live a life of leisure in our remaining years.

Now is our time of NEW BEGINNINGS.

Is Roland Louis Hansen a Political Scientist?

“Political scientists study the origin, development, and operation of political systems. They research political ideas and analyze governments, policies, political trends, and related issues.”
~ ref: Bureau of Labor Statistics > Occupational Outlook Handbook > Life, Physical, and Social Science > Political Scientists

Political scientists are part researcher, part analyst, and part forecaster. They use their expertise to understand how policies and laws affect government, business, and citizens. They look back at history and monitor current affairs to predict trends. Certainly, political science includes the study of institutions of government, formal laws, political processes, and political issues; but it also examines public opinion, political parties, and economics.”
~ ref: CareerExplorer / Careers / Science / Social Sciences / Political Scientist / Overview

“A political scientist typically needs to finish a master’s degree or PhD program in political science, public administration, or a related field. … He or she often gains a Master of Public Policy (MPP), Master of Public Administration (MPA) or a Master of Public Affairs degree. A political scientist may choose to focus on a specific area of interest after these programs are completed, like national politics, political theory, international relations, or comparative politics. This requires many years of coursework after which they conduct independent research for a dissertation.”
~ ref: YourFreeCareerTest / political-scientist

*** FYI about Roland Louis Hansen:
I have a Master of Public Administration (MPA) degree. I have been a professional public administrator; an elected official; a political operative, researcher, analyst, and consultant; and, a college instructor of public administration, political science, psychology, and sociology. I have been inducted into both Pi Sigma Alpha, the National Political Science Honor Society, and Pi Alpha Alpha, the National Honor Society for Public Affairs and Public Administration.

Libtard

Many political conservatives have blasted me, belittled me, and called me names some of which have been extremely vulgar. Many times, political conservatives have called me “libtard” in their poor attempts at insulting me. After having seen the meme that I am reproducing below, I have decided that the use of the word “libtard” by political conservatives in describing me is actually a compliment.

Mothers Day is every day. Loving thoughts of Pearl Lerman Hansen.

Having been raised in a single parent home for most of my life along with five of my brothers, Jan, Ron, Rich, Garry and Daryl, and my sister, Cheryl, (there were 7 of us), I have a special appreciation for my mother. My mother, Pearl Lerman Hansen, was a strong woman who put the needs of her children before herself. She sacrificed so much to keep us all together. My mother was an immigrant to the USA with less than a high school education who possessed wisdom and knowledge unseen by many people. Her love, compassion, commitment to family, selflessness, and real true social consciousness with a strong belief in social justice for all have guided me throughout my entire life. Everything I am today, I owe to my mother.

[Special note: My brother Bob and I had the same father, Robert Christian Hansen, but different mothers. Bob was 13 and 1/2 years older than I. Bob’s mother, Margaret, died when Bob was still an infant and Bob was raised by our paternal grandparents, Peter and Agnes Hansen.]

Had my mother lived, she would be 97 years old. However, she died from a cerebral hemorrhage on October 20, 1984 at the age of 62, just 2 months 2 days shy of her 63rd birthday. I am now 8 years 8 months older than was my mother when she died.

My mother may have left this corporal world, but she lives on through me in my heart, mind, and soul. And when I leave this world, may she live on through my children, and my children’s children, and their children, and so on and so forth forever. May Mom never be forgotten; may her blessed memory live on forever.
