Rudi's new book The Universe Is in un -

From Webmaster Bev:

Marshalltown's More…1958 graduating class Scientist Allan Rudison has written and published a book entitled, "The Universe Is In Us." It explains how the expansion of the Universe is directly proportional to life's beginning and the expansion of the brain-computer connection. He is a conduit for NASA JPA (Jet Propulsion Laboratory) for his ability to connect Astrophysics to the general public from a different perspective of understanding.     

"The Universe Is In Us" is available here on Amazon, also on Barnes & Noble. You can get a preview of the content at the Amazon website. The book website is at https://authorwebservices-xl.net/US/808696/.

Congratulations Rudi! What an awesome accomplishment!

I asked Rudi how he got involved in this project, and part of his reply back to me was: "I was interested in this topic because the Astro Physicist at NASA JPL couldn't figure out what the invisible Dark Matter and Dark Energy were and I became the conduit for them to figure it out." Rudison's book breaks down the science so the layman reader is not intimidated. In reading his book, I found his correlation between dark energy being directly proportional to the dark matter in our brains quite interesting, and how this has evolved over time. What might be the implications for that? If you have interest in the expanding universe and humankind's evolving brain, you will find the book an interesting read.

Mike Donahey wrote a very nice article for the Marshalltown Times-Republican about Rudi appearing March 23:

After nearly 62 years, members of the Marshalltown High School Class of 1958 are still working hard to make the world take notice. 

One is author, pathologist and businessman Allan Rudison of Los Angeles, Calif.  

In his book, “The Universe is in Us,” published by Xlibris, Rudison breaks down the complexities of science and puts them into layman’s terms so the reader is not intimidated. 

Specifically Rudison tackles the complexities of dark matter, much like he did to opponents on the football field. 

Dark matter is a form of matter thought to account for approximately 85 percent of the matter in the universe and about a quarter of its total energy density.

Fellow class graduate and retired businesswoman Bev (nee Scafferi) Collins of Colorado Springs, Colo. described it as “how the expansion of the universe is directly proportional to life’s beginning — the Big Bang Theory — and the expansion of the brain-computer connection.” 

Rudison said his motivation to write the book came from “the inability of other astrophysicists to figure out what the invisible dark matter and dark energy were and I became the conduit to figure it out.”

He said he worked to break the complexities down.

“I wrote the book not for scientists, but for regular people,” Rudison said. “I broke things down so it is readable. I put pictures by all of the literature. People understand bettter what they see versus what they read. No one is going to have to be an astrophysicist to understand the book. I hope readers will have a positive impact on their lives from the information I presented.”

Collins also said “If anyone has an interest in the expanding universe and human-kinds’s evolving brain, you will find this book an interesting read.”

Growing up in Marshallown

Rudison has many fond memories of his hometown.

“I left Arnold Grade School to begin second grade at Glick School where I met lifelong friends, he said. “I played clarinet in the junior high school band until I became interested in sports. I participated to the best of my ability in all major sports. I enjoyed pep rallies, mingling at the YMCA and most of all going to class to prepare for college. I enjoyed so many wonderful nice and friendly classmates. I simply had a ball, and it has continued through my life.”

Rudison continued to excel as a student and athlete, first on a football scholarship at Iowa Wesleyan University in Mount Pleasant. 

He then transferred to Southern University in Baton Rouge, La. 

He was inducted into that school’s Sports Hall of Fame in 2010.

After earning his bachelor’s degree at Southern University, Rudison would go on to earn his doctorate at the University of California at Los Angeles with a number of academic honors, including magna cum laude.

“While in the classroom, on the football field, and in his medical professional life, Allan has been a fierce competitor,” Collins said.

He serves as president and CEO of Ethics and Science & Medicine in Los Angeles, where he resides with his family.

The book is available on Amazon and on Barnes & Noble. The book’s website is authorwebservices-xl.net/US/808696.

Our 1958 graduates have made many impacts on our world. Thanks to Rudi for this one!

Happy Birthday Glenda. They are such nice things to be getting and super glad you and Bob are still able to have fun together. Am now selling my house to move in with my older son, Walter, in Northern VA when ever my house sells. It is a most ideal setup and the 3 teen girls can't wait and I am super blessed with a great daughter-in-law, Sarah. Also they have a fantastic very active mission minded church with strong and active laity leadership. So, here is also a most special wish for you two to also have a most Blessed Christmas and Happy New Year. Do you have a newer pix of you two for me to put up around my monitor? The one I have has a blue hat and a tan cap. Love, Bill

Burris Workman -

Email from Burris Workman to Class of 1958:

More…style="font-size:14px;">The MHS class of 1969 launched a program to replace trees lost due to the tornado a year ago. The class of '57 is the leading giver with over $2500 donated. I'm not sure many in our class are aware of the program. Marshalltown has had beautiful trees. You can make a donation online or by snail mail. Be sure to memo Class of '58. Can we top the Class of '57?  Burris

The Fund Drive will end on Sunday, September 29, 2019 at a “MHS All Alumni Picnic Celebration” at Riverview Park.

I visited Marshalltown a year after the July 2018 tornado. Remember how beautiful Main Street was with its tree canopy? It's all gone. The areas hit by the tornado have much work needed. The program will also support "Trees Forever." If you are able to donate, please do. If you have questions, please direct to Lyle Jensen at lylejensen.ia@gmail.com, phone 515-468-9631.
