I've split this off.  Simply too much commentary on that thread on one article for it to be a master thread.

If it's an article that is controversial or may generate a lot of discussion it probably can have it own thread...

Interesting Non-profit (http://cpi.transparency.org/cpi2011/results/) agency that collects data every year to put out a list of most corrupt countries-least corrupt.

As expected, US, Canada, Australia, UK etc. are up toward the top of the list (least corrupt) and North Korea, Somalia, Afghanistan etc are toward the bottom of the list (most corrupt).

Notice how Israel is ranked one of the best in the Middle East.....

I thought it's better for bbm to turn it off before the flight, as this way it registers as off, whereas if it's out of reception the message might get stuck and not come afterwards

Post by: arch on April 26, 2012, 10:45:26 AM
Best Buy is now a proud "Platinum Sponser" of CAIR! For those who are unfamiliar with CAIR, it stands for Council on American-Islamic Relations. The United States government named CAIR an "unindicted co-conspirator" to fund the terrorist group Hamas in America's most significant terror financing trial. The U.S. also identified CAIR as an agent of the Muslim Brotherhood, and its immediate predecessor as sharing the common goal of dismantling American institutions and turning the U.S. into a Sharia-compliant, Islamic state through incremental, stealth jihad.

I happen to agree with much of what it says but it obviously also depends how much you paid. Lets say you pay $155/month instead of $300 with no money down. Changes the math a little.
He also downplays how much people appreciate having a new car rather than a 7 year old car (notice how he only mentions a 4 year old car and not an 8 year old car)

Quote
A Minnesota couple has been accused of shaving their 12-year-old daughter's head and forcing her to run down the street wearing a diaper after she got an F on her report card.

A neighbor called the police after a crowd of about 50 people, including men and teen boys, came out to watch the girl run up and down the street wearing only a tank top and an adult diaper, according to the criminal complaint.

The child was begging to be let back inside, but her parents locked her out, police said. Officers believed she was outside for about half an hour before police were called.

"When the officer found her, she was crying and hysterical," Police Lt. Mike Monsrud told the St. Paul Pioneer Press.

The girl's mother, 38-year-old Stephanie Broten, and her live-in boyfriend, 34-year-old Darnell Landrum, were arrested late Monday. They were charged Wednesday with malicious punishment of a child, a gross misdemeanor, and face up to a year in prison and a $3,000, according to MSNBC.

The couple had warned the preteen about the punishment she'd receive if she didn't improve at school, according to police.

"They told her if she didn't, they would shave her head and put her on 'diaper duty,' which I guess meant running up and down the street and cleaning up trash as a form of public humiliation," Monsrud told the Pioneer Press.

The girl said it was the third time she had been placed on "diaper duty," according to the criminal complaint. The F on her latest report card triggered the latest round.

The couple was surprised authorities were intervening in their efforts to discipline the child, according to police.

"Through the whole contact, and even on the way to jail, both were laughing and thinking it was ridiculous police would get involved in what they said was their parental decision," Monsrud told the Pioneer Press.

Cops responded to four calls in the past two years at the family's home, one of which prompted a call to child protective services, police said.

The girl and three of her siblings have been placed in foster care

All the same story. Basically a kid was told that he doesn't have long to live. Friends and family asked what they can do to help. The mom's response was amazing saying we don't need anything just make a moment with your family. One night for dinner put an ice cram Sunday in front of your kids. it's something they will remember forever. SO COOL!!!

"3 Browser Method"
The 3 browser method (3BM) is a technique that I came up with about 8 years ago with that has now spread across the web. It has helped me accumulate hundreds of credit cards (including dozens of the same exact card) along with millions of miles for free.  There's no reason you can't do it as well! Basically the idea is to apply for 3 different credit cards from the same bank (Either from AMEX, Chase, Citi, etc.) at the same exact time using 3 different web browsers, like Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari, etc, etc.

Quote from:
The first group of customers to be disconnected when there is a shortage are private consumers such as homes, offices, small businesses and stores. These will be cut off immediately.

The group with the second lowest priority for continued electricity supplies - and which will be blacked out only in cases of a serious shortage - are light industrial plants with the ability to run their own generators as backup; as well as residents of the West Bank and Gaza. These areas "suffer all year round from many minutes of a lack of [electricity] supply relative to the rest of the regions," said the Electricity Administration.

Of course us paying customers will be first on the list to get cut off and if that's not enough only then do we cut off the arabs... grrr.  >:(

Will be interesting to see how this plays out as far as stores charging consumers extra for paying with CC's.
 
Also, if the merchants fees end up going down permanently, I wonder if there's any chance that Paypal and their ilk will have to  lower prices for eBay merchants.. Doubtful, but I still wonder....

My favorite part of his obituary

" Also, I really am NOT a PhD. What happened was that the day I went to pay off my college student loan at the U of U, the girl working there put my receipt into the wrong stack, and two weeks later, a PhD diploma came in the mail. I didn't even graduate, I only had about 3 years of college credit. In fact, I never did even learn what the letters "PhD" even stood for. For all of the Electronic Engineers I have worked with, I'm sorry, but you have to admit my designs always worked very well, and were well engineered, and I always made you laugh at work."

 If a store owner wants to have a dress code that's his or her own choice. I'm more concerned with how they treat someone if they walk in NOT dressed according their dress code.

I don't think it's a smart thing to do but I believe they are entitled to do it.

Now when they stick signs up in the middle of the street that is a whole other story.

Seems silly. No one ever heard of no shirt no shoes no service. That's ancient why is this any different? Calling it unamerican is just ignorant. If I had a store I wouldn't have signs like that, but it is within the store owners right to make that choice and I see where they are coming from.

Amazing story! If she would be as open as she sees herself, maybe she will keep some of the mitzvos that she tried out.

It is a different religion when you keep something by choice or because Hashem commanded us. In the words of Rav Meir Kahana "that is not Judaism, it is Bernyism, Goldbergism etc."

 I also think it's ridiculous when people boycott companies that aren't for gay marriage.
Why can't two people just have different opinions?

        Except with a story like this http://www.nwherald.com/2012/07/30/ill-eagle-scout-returns-medal-to-protest-gay-ban/awqx10w/ where they are actually acting negatively towards you because a person is gay. That I can understand how people would boycott.

Allegations Of Sexual Abuse Surface At Orthodox Jewish Camp (http://nyp.st/R4LLIA)
Crazy story, and even crazier reaction by camp officials who told kids not to tell their parents, and then contacted a lawyer and needed him to advise them to call police!!
Title: Re: Interesting Articles...
Post by: trying123 on August 12, 2012, 05:54:58 PM
The story is taken out of proportion, a terrible story happened and instead of the camp director or menehalim should throw a whole camp of 1200 boys in chaos, and have all boys frantic and crazy they handled the case professionaly , unlike all those sites and blogs tht are hungry for a story and scandals, they thought wht it can happen to a camp full of small boys, tht driver was thrown out immediately by contacting the food company, alot faster then police would of tracked him down, the DA was contacted and said the only charges are trespassing, a charge tht wouldn't hold up in the court of law, cuz he didn't trespass, cuz he had permission to come, police where showed the high quality surveillance, and where allowed access to speak to children,  chasdie hashem there was no damage done,  but I would any time send my kids to a camp tht doesn't get dragged into hurting the kids and panicking and running a whole camp by scaring the living daylight out of all kids , the danger wasn't imminent any more, so going to police wasn't in urgency, although the dayin ruling tht camp ruled it has to b reported to police,  and yes they did handle it with yishuv Hadaas,  no one on these blogs saw the footage ,the menhalim did see the footage and handled accordingly, 
Tht is my own 2 sense,
I have to admit when reading this story my blood pressure went up. But after calling friends I know from this kehilah these r my findings
Pls let me know if I'm wrong and I'm ready to change my mind, 
Title: Re: Interesting Articles...

The story is taken out of proportion...
I must admit that the only details that I know are from the New York Post which may be inaccurate, however I don't agree with your whitewashing the whole event. I think it's been rehashed again and again (and yet again)  that you must call the police ASAP in such a case. Assuming it's true that they said not to tell the parents - while you have points about not throwing all the kids into a panic, I don't think there is ever a valid cause to hide something like that from a parent for even a minute.
The attitude of  "tht driver was thrown out immediately by contacting the food company, alot faster then police would of tracked him down" is treading on very dangerous waters. The food company is not the first one to be contacted, and according to the article they only contacted the police when they were advised by their lawyer. Even Agudas Yisroel has said that police must be contacted when there is substantial evidence (which it sounds like there was here). What if he had more camps to deliver to that morning?
Again, I don't know any details and I'm only conjecturing but I would imagine that someone who is a registered offender and now has several boys with corroborating stories and is known to have been in a bunk where he shouldn't be - can be put in jail for many years and charged with a lot more than just trespassing.

Interesting. From the wording it sounds like the park may be open, but they won't let cars drive through (ie sit on a bus with 50 other people and look at the animals?).
I went a few months ago and was disappointed that the monkeys (which used to be the best part) are all behind cages now and don't go on the cars.

the facts are more or less true but the question is: why is there always a feeling that Obama hates Israel even though he showers them with goodies ?

Interesting, worked for me.
"   The White House declined Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's request on Tuesday to meet U.S. President Barack Obama during a UN conference in New York at the end of the month.

An official in Jerusalem said that the prime minister's office sent the White House a message stating that although Netanyahu will spend only two and a half days on U.S. soil, he is interested in meeting Obama and is willing to travel  to the U.S. capital specifically for that purpose.  The official added that the White House rejected the request and said that at this time Obama's schedule does not allow for a meeting.

The White House's response marks a new low in relations between Netanyahu and Obama, underscored by the fact that this is the first time Netanyahu will visit the U.S. as prime minister without meeting the president.

Defense Minister Ehud Barak tried to ease the tension on Tuesday, saying that the differences between the U.S. and Israel should be ironed out "but behind closed doors."

"We must not forget that the U.S. is Israel's most important source of support in terms of security," he said in a statement.

Earlier on Tuesday, Netanyahu launched an unprecedented verbal attack on the U.S. government over its stance on the Iranian nuclear program.

"The world tells Israel 'wait, there's still time'. And I say, 'Wait for what? Wait until when?' Those in the international community who refuse to put red lines before Iran don't have a moral right to place a red light before Israel," Netanyahu told reporters on Tuesday.

"Now if Iran knows that there is no red line. If Iran knows that there is no deadline, what will it do? Exactly what it's doing. It's continuing, without any interference, towards obtaining nuclear weapons capability and from there, nuclear bombs," he said.

U.S. Department of State spokeswoman Victoria Nuland stressed again on Tuesday that the U.S.  administration doesn't see public discussion of Iranian nuclear program and red lines as useful. "We don't think it's particularly useful to have those conversations in public. It doesn't help the process and it doesn't help the integrity of the diplomacy. To be standing here at the podium parsing the details of the Iranian nuclear program is not helpful to getting where we want to go," she said, briefing the media.

Also on Tuesday, U.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said that if Iran decides to make a nuclear weapon, the United States would have a little more than a year to act to stop it." "

(BN) An Obama Re-Election Nightmare
Bloomberg News

It is April 2015. The cherry blossoms are in full bloom in the nation’s capital, yet the colorful display can’t dispel the cloud hanging over the city and the country.

The skies are gray. The mood is gray. Even President Barack Obama is gray as he looks forward to the end of his second term.

Obama emerges from his portable-solar-panel-powered limousine and is greeted by the chairman of his Bureau of Income Equality. Despite his attempts to cap the difference between the average salary of a company worker and the chief executive officer, the gap between rich and middle class has only gotten wider.

To address the problem, Obama’s Fish and Wildlife Service declared the middle class an endangered species. In order to prevent this entire class of society from becoming extinct, FWS designed thousands of spawning facilities and controlled living environments where, with government assistance, the new middle class would be allowed to thrive and prosper before being reintroduced into society at large.

Following Obama’s victory in the 2012 presidential election, Republican members of the House of Representatives signed Grover Norquist’s pledge to do nothing about anything. Representatives no longer show up in Washington to do the people’s business on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday because there is nothing to do. C-SPAN transmits videos of the empty chamber, where occasionally a lawmaker can be found practicing his oratorical skills so that he can find representation with the Washington Speakers Bureau and cash in on the speaking circuit when he retires from Congress.

Do-Nothing Congress

Meanwhile, the Senate hasn’t passed a budget in more than five years. Continuing resolutions to fund the government are rolled over every few months, leading to the institutionalization of the permanent continuing resolution. The relative ease of voting “yea” or “nay” on existing appropriations has some lawmakers questioning why a budget process was ever necessary in the first place.

The U.S. economy is still limping along, the reasons for which are a point of contention between Democrats and Republicans. Former Obama economic adviser Christina Romer regularly defends the 2009 fiscal stimulus, providing a running tally of “jobs created or saved.” Princeton University economist Paul Krugman reminds us he was right all along when he said the $831 billion package was too small. The Nobel laureate recently relocated to Sweden, where he preaches the Keynesian gospel to an audience more receptive to European-style capitalism.

At the Federal Reserve, Ben Bernanke returned to Princeton when his second term as chairman ended in January 2014. In announcing his decision, Bernanke said he was “excited by the opportunity” to revise his 2001 book on inflation targeting. The working title for the new edition is, “Inflation Targeting: Double the Fun (and Twice the Work) Under a Dual Mandate.” The former Fed chief has embarked on a project to determine why econometric models work so well in the classroom and fail so miserably in the real world.

Obama appointed Fed Governor Janet Yellen to succeed Bernanke, giving him the opportunity to tout “the first woman to lead the U.S. central bank in its 100-year history.” The president said he welcomed the Fed’s efforts to accommodate her request for flextime scheduling.

Yellen, one of the more dovish governors, didn’t change her feathers when she slipped into the chairman’s seat. She continued to expand the Fed’s balance sheet and, in a move that caught financial markets by surprise, altered the forward guidance. At the conclusion of Yellen’s first meeting as chairman in March 2014, the Fed said it expected to hold the funds rate near zero “at least through the end of the decade.”

Tangible Target

The change had no discernible effect on the public’s behavior. After months of study, the Fed’s Permanent Committee on Communication determined that the forward guidance was hypnotizing animal spirits instead of awakening them. Housing experts explained that it’s the threat, or reality, of rising mortgage rates that nudges potential homebuyers off the fence.

Armed with new insights, the Fed decided to abandon the time-frame guidance and insert a tangible target in its statement for the first time. (The Permanent Committee was disbanded until further notice.) At the Fed’s March 11, 2015, meeting, the central bank said it “anticipates that exceptionally low levels for the federal funds rate are likely to be warranted until there’s a Republican in the White House.”

Financial markets didn’t know what to make of it, but the shift introduced some volatility -- and wider bid-ask spreads -- for banks struggling to make a profit in a low-interest-rate environment. The ban on proprietary trading, which regulators are still struggling to define, removed a major source of revenue. At the same time, slow growth has kept loan demand in check.

Under pressure to boost earnings, banks found a way to exploit a loophole in the Dodd-Frank law and create a newfangled product: the reverse reverse mortgage with an inverse floater attached. Actor Fred Thompson has been hired to promote the product on TV but is reportedly struggling to simplify his pitch for the octogenarian set.

That was as much of fantasy-land 2015 as I could handle. Eager to move on, I grabbed my Magic 8 Ball and asked about the outcome of the 2016 presidential race.

“Reply hazy. Ask again later.”

Maybe it’s just as well.

We've heard numerous times Warren Buffet's seemingly altruistic call to raise taxes on the wealthy.  Here's an interesting article explaining why tax hikes on the wealthy won't affect him any.

I wouldn't call it a 'response', but since your post there has been at least one comment of that nature. See comment 11, a really nice story pertaining to the article.

Either way, it's a legitimate question to ask (albeit probably not the right way or tone to ask it). These activities are pirsum haneis, but not the way chazal were misaken for us. So for Chabad and other mekarvim, it's about kiruv more than it's about Chanukah, at which point it's no different than any other question of balancing safety concerns in kiruv work. I'm sure that's something that the Chabad shliach community grapples with all the time (not everywhere of course).

+100

He himself writes in his book "snowball" how he wouldn't have invested in certain companys had there been certain tax implications.
If he was so sincere about paying more taxes, why dosen't he just send a BIG check to the treasury and lead by example, instead of paying top accountants to get him as much tax loopholes as possible.  He's upset that he pays only 17.7% tax rate while his secretary pays 30% what he dosen't mention is the difference in $$$$ that the wealthy pay as opposed to the regular folk. The wealthy pay  70% of taxes already. If you want the Rich to pay more, LET THEM GET RICHER.

Form NBC "According to new data from the IRS, people who make $1 million or more had an average tax rate of 20.4 percent in 2010. Tax filers who earned $30,000 to $50,000 paid an average rate of 4.8 percent, while those who made between $50,000 and $100,000 paid 7.7 percent. Those making under $30,000 had a negative effective rate, meaning they paid no federal income taxes after deductions and credits."

And no one is even talking about this, but even if they raise taxes on the rich it would still take 536 years to pay off the current deficit.

The bottom line is that it's shelo lishma, he stands to profit from the higher taxes he supports.  (http://ricochet.com/main-feed/Warren-Buffett-Stands-to-Gain-from-Higher-Taxes-on-the-Rich)

In contract law, an offer made in jest is not a legal offer.

 See here (http://chestofbooks.com/business/law/Law-Of-Contracts-4-1/Sec-80-Offers-In-Jest.html#.UO9dDW9EQtg)
Sec. 80. Offers In Jest

An offer made in jest and known to be made in jest by the party accepting it, can not be the basis of any legal liability.1 Thus a marriage ceremony intended by both parties as a jest,2 or the giving of a check for three hundred dollars for a watch worth fifteen, both parties intending the transaction as a joke and neither intending a sale of the watch,3 or a promise to pay forty dollars for a cow which was worth less than fifteen dollars, if known to the offeree to be intended as a joke,4 or a promise to sell twenty thousand barrels of flour considerably below the market price, if made by a small retail dealer without the means to perform such contract, and if such transaction was intended as a mere "bluff," and known to the adversary party to be thus intended,5 are without legal effect.

In other news, going forward new petitions on wtp will need 100K signatures to warrant a response. Evidently, frivolous petitions were squeaking past the 25K minimum. Silly white house didn't realize the power of social media when they initially set it at 5k!

Edit: Looks like this one does need 100K but at the speed it's been getting signatures should be there in a few days!

Wish there was a way to play DDFtag but most of us don't know many others in real life. It's funny though because since I met a few particular DDF'ers once, I've bumped into them in other places which means I probably definitely pass by other DDF'ers all the time and don't know it. I'm always looking out for other people who are buying vanilla reload cards at the same time as me :)

If there were some way we could all identify ourselves with some 'mark', (DDF logo branded on our belt buckle or something) we could get a nationwide DDF tag game going.

Isn't that one of the only things they have over UPS/Fedex? (Besides for flat rate package options, which is the same idea)

Eta: I mean to say that if they wouldn't have that restriction in place, it wouldn't be flat rate. In that case, alot of the business would shift over to other providers.

They have borrowed $15 billion from the US taxpayers so far-

"The service -- one of the few government agencies explicitly authorized by the Constitution -- has reached its $15 billion credit limit with the U.S. Treasury and has effectively run out of money, said Williams, whose job is to prevent fraud, waste and program abuse and promote USPS efficiency.

"This is the year that they borrowed so much that they can't borrow anymore," he told the newspaper."


They will probably get bailed out soon or receive additional spending limits. In my book, it's effectively a tax and will only get worse.
About the unions- you say they are a necessary evil, I halfway agree with you: They are evil.

From Chabad website:

Quote
Rabbi Moshe Feinstein, eminent 20th century halachic authority, writes1 that a woman who desires to wear a tallit may do so, provided that she wears a distinctively feminine tallit, to avoid the problem mentioned above. He cautions, however, that this applies only to women whose desire to wear a tallit stems from a yearning to fulfill this mitzvah, though recognizing that they are not required to do so, and not to individuals who don a tallit as a "protest," a means of challenging what they perceive to be a gender bias in Jewish law. Such an individual is not fulfilling a mitzvah, and to the contrary.

That said, their Tallaisim are pretty feminine (I question the men who wear them)

I feel weird commenting because I am friends with people in Shmuley's family and know intimate details which the article didn't mention. Could be I know what he told the family and it isn't the real story, but what I heard is different in a few ways from the article...

Regardless of those details- I do think CAY has a purpose and is a good thing.

Very sad, but hardly shocking.
I'm a first hand witness to hearing a teen tell kid "if you want to ruin so and so's life accuse him of molesting you"(Bh he didnt go through with it) I mentioned this to a prominent child rights activist, and he responded "loshon hara"
Without taking sides in any story, it does make me wonder about others
Quote from: chabadinfo.com
It must be mentioned that there is Halachic authority obligating public notification of an individual who poses a potential communal threat. Harav Elchonon Tauber of CA has paskened that the verse “Lifnei ever lo siten michshol” imposes an affirmative obligation to report any knowledge of alleged abuse to both the authorities and the community.  This Halachic obligation does not have a “conviction” requirement, rather, an accusation is sufficient to trigger this responsibility.

Rav Tauber’s greatest example is if someone is rumored to be poisoning the food in a school, would we hesitate to remove this person from the school? Or would we begin to conduct investigations to challenge the veracity of the accusers? Of course we remove the person immediately. Somehow when the word "abuse" is involved, people get uncomfortable. "Abuse" = murder. If a person was an "alleged" murderer, would we hesitate to notify the community?
if such a person would be found innocent, the apology would deff. be much stronger and heartfelt and it would hardly ruin his life like this

To me it's not even so much about an apology (although obviously that would be the proper thing to do). The same way they feel the obligation to publicize when someone is accused or arrested, they should feel an obligation to clear the name of an innocent and publicize that he was cleared. It's possible that they don't believe he's innocent, but that's a whole separate issue.

I don't know anything other than what he himself wrote. But let's say for argument's sake that everything he wrote there could be 100% corroborated. You still wouldn't feel comfortable at that point?

This is something that's very hard to come to grips with. Any time you entrust your child to someone else's care, it's always possible that they are doing things you don't want them to. The fact that someone has been accused is a big deal. But rationally I know it's possible that someone can be accused and yet be completely innocent (especially where the accusations have been retracted). And the flip side is that someone that hasn't ever been accused might be very guilty, but really good at not getting caught. There's no one answer here. You have to be able to get yourself comfortable with whoever you entrust your child to. That process would probably be a lot more difficult with someone who was accused and exonerated, but I think it's still possible.

They don't. Never have.

But when Kirkland and Ellis is the face of chasidim on the media, well, that's a different story.

And when the NYC gov't is asserting meritless claims against chasidim-established businesses while chasidim is being repped by K&E, well, it'll be a good show.

A good show, indeed.

The Mishneh Torah is a rare manuscript with text by the Middle Ages Jewish philosopher Moses Maimonides. It is the second of a two-volume manuscript featuring six large illustrations plus 32 smaller images and marginal decorations. The first volume is housed in the Vatican Library.

This always bothers me.  Why does the Vatican feel they can hold on to stolen manuscripts.  Do they claim legal title to them?

Hard to imagine another way, considering the fact that Jews have tended to be pretty attached to their books, expecially in those days when they weren't easy to come by in the first place.

I would imagine if the item was originally stolen and tracked down it would be the responsibility of whoever has the stolen goods to return them, the Vatican isn't all that known for releasing records though, it makes it way more difficult to prove.
Title: Re: Interesting Articles...
Post by: good sam on April 29, 2013, 04:33:20 PM

I don't think anyone can determine that today.  If we're talking about an individual who is in possession of stolen goods that have changed hands hundreds of times, I'd say you're right.  But isn't the Vatican to be held to a higher standard?  I wouldn't want the highest office in my religion to knowingly possess stolen goods.  Especially when you consider they way in which they were likely obtained.

I'd think handing them over to Jewish communities or Jewish museums would be in order.

You know, even if by some freak of nature it wasn't stolen, it would still be appropriate to return it (and other Jewish treasures) as a minimal restitution for the ten thousands of Jewish books and cultural artefacts which were burnt at the personal initiation of various popes.

Why the heck was anyone trusting Weinstein with their money in May of 2012 long after he was arrested (Aug 2010) as being a ponzi scheme con man???
Granted he didn't plead guilty until Jan 2013 but who in their right mind would still invest with him??

reporting a full spectrum of orthodox Jews means anti stereotype orthodoxy? Sounds like you think closed minded biases opinions are the only thing acceptable to publish, otherwise it is obviously anti-orthodox because its not how you see the orthodox world.

It was actually the dorm counselor who found him while waking the boys for shacharis. He  screamed out  when he walked into the room and a few boys came running in right away; so, I doubt that anyone in the yeshiva moved him. (Aside from the fact that it would have been nearly impossible to clean oneself up completely, before the police arrived, considering the amount of blood and brain fragment there was).

What I'm not getting here: someone lit a candle Shabbos?
From what I understand from the guy who was there, the candle was lit during the week. Although the media seems to be saying that the candle was there when they found him.

"Unanimous Vote, Russia Passes Bill Making It Illegal To Tell Kids Gay People Exist"

No more learning chumash in Russia or you can be deported.
Seems to be a sensational headline. Law just says you can't equate heterosexual and homosexual relationships. Seems very appropriate to me.

A number of regions have already adopted a similar law, and now MPs from President Vladimir Putin’s United Russia party want to implement a nationwide ban on “gay propaganda”.

The law defines the rather nebulous concept as “spreading information aimed at forming non- traditional sexual behaviour among children, suggesting this behaviour is attractive, and making a false statement about the socially equal nature of traditional and non-traditional relationships”.

Post by: SamKey on June 19, 2013, 06:52:06 AM
Why?
He is a very religious ultra Orthodox guy who lives in Midwood area of Brooklyn where one of our largest communities reside and he is very helpful and generous to all our good causes.
Just to let you know who we are  dealing with, I'll share a pretty well known story about him with you; He was once doing a business deal with D. Trump. When he walked in to the office he had a hard time pinpointing which one in the office was Trump. When ask how was it possible "Don't you see me on TV?"

There's actually another frum guy with plans to build the tallest residential building in the city, most likely taller than the Empire State Building. The NYT had an article about it recently.

That is nuts.  These are the kind of people that should be in intensive therapy when they get arrested - prison doesn't usually help them.  And if therapy doesn't work within a few years, then they should be either jailed for life with no chance of parole, or shot on the spot.  Of course our system would never allow that  >:(

i'm thinking it's like one of those fbi terrorist busts where they go to a couple of guys, offer them some guns and then bust them, meanwhile if they hadn't made it accessible all they would have ever done is hate. Not that i don't mind the setup... it's not like they were blowing things up and ran out of c4. (All an opinion  ;) duh)

While I am generally against entrapment stings, this case was very different. She approached her co-worker asking him to kill her husband. The co-worker was concerned so he contacted authorities. She was actively looking to do the crime and they authorities intercepted her.
There's so many domestic disputes that end in murder - luckily this one was caught before it happened not after.

Generally when the supposed murderer is dead the statute of limitation is over. I can quote many cases even up thread that can prove that.

Anyway his statement that the bible is inrefutable is laughable.

seriously? ever heard of "makom hinichu" it wouldn't be emunah if it was so pashut

Like what Moko said. It would need to be proven 100% to be evidence in court, and that is contrary to having free will.If it could be proven 100%.

I am not going to go there but I agree the Bible or any other book/religion could never make the cut in court.

Being gay is not a sin, committing gay acts is a capital offense in the Torah.
Gay lust is just like adultery lust. Just because you're born with it, doesn't justify it. No different.

Gay lust is just like adultery lust.

But at least adultery lust can be satisfied with a grusha b'chayei baalah. See Chulin 109b (http://www.hebrewbooks.org/shas.aspx?mesechta=31&daf=109b&format=pdf) bottom of page

Interesting point:
Why fingerprints make lousy authentication tokens (http://boingboing.net/2013/09/12/why-fingerprints-make-lousy-au.html)

The gist of it: fingerprints (or any biometric authentication) is pretty lousy compared to a PIN. While a PIN you can a)keep to yourself and b)change if it gets compromised, your fingerprints a) get left lying around everywhere and b)once a bad guy gets hold of it you can't change them.

Title: Re: Interesting Articles...
Post by: yuneeq on September 14, 2013, 10:19:02 PM
How so?

For example:

" And like the sensor in the iPhone 5S, the sensors that will be in laptops and keyboards and other phones can detect the ridge and valley pattern of your fingerprint not from the layer of dead skin on the outside of your finger (which a fake finger can easily replicate), but from the living layer of skin under the surface of your finger, using an RF signal. That only works on a live finger; not one that's been severed from your body."

No. I was responding to your comparison. Plus the article I posted says fingerprints also aren't an issue. I'll read your article now.

Eta: Read the article. The author believes that chopping off a finger would work, same with fingerprints. He's wrong on both counts. You know what they about bloggers and research...

Typically, how many Air Miles does it take for one person to take a flight?
I always thought it was ridiculous numbers, like 500 000 miles or something.   Today 7:06am

Senshi34lambdacore
Not at all actually. The circumference of earth is about 25,000 miles. So with 25,000 air miles you could go to the other side of the world and back again.   Today 7:15am

Pretty dumb article. Basically she takes a specific set of made up numbers and shows how renting is more worthwhile. Every case is going to be different. Of course there are scenarios where renting is the smarter money choice, and there are scenarios where buying is the smarter choice. It will all depend on the specifics.

One thing she blatantly leaves out is that rent goes up too. Literally no mention of that. The bottom line is that the rental market should be priced to take into account all of these factors (ie the owner is paying all the 'homeowners' costs and more, plus a profit margin). There are often reasons why the rental market is not in sync, making it more or less worthwhile to rent.

At least where I live it's very tough to rent a nice sized house.  Plus in your own house you can customize things, etc.  You're not going to invest in a rental to have a fully kosher kitchen.

Sure you will save some money, but many people don't figure on all the added costs of tax, increased utilities, landscaping, insurance, interest, etc. 
I rented until we needed more space than an apartment could provide.

You're perhaps inadvertently bringing up a different issue, which is that it's very hard to ever make an appropriate comparison, since in many areas, for the most part the rental market is predominantly apartments, and the 'ownership' market is predominantly houses. But if you had the right market to make the comparison in, you'd find that whether it makes more sense to own or rent say a house (from a purely financial perspective) will depend on the details. My point is that the article is silly to make up a set of numbers and pretend that it's representative of the market at large). It's totally market specific.

Also, the idea that you'll invest more in a house you own than one you rent is a valid point. But it's not a financial point, and should be excluded from a discussion of which one is better looking at costs alone.

Just as an example, there are plenty of fully attached houses in Kew Gardens Hills both for sale and for rent. There are differences from block to block in exact dimensions, setup, extensions, etc - but they're more than similar enough for a comparison.

Party’s over for con man who bamboozled Beach hoteliers
gsolis@MiamiHerald.com (BY GUSTAVO SOLIS)
Oct 2, 2013 8:42:46 PM
For one heady summer, “James Sabat” lived the South Florida suite life, flitting from one high-end hotel to the next, ordering magnums of champagne, chomping choice steaks with his circle of pals and running room service ragged.

At various locales, he and his entourage racked up monster hotel bills — as much as $274,000 — on credit, Miami Beach police said.

And then they vanished.

Last week, finally, “Sabat” — real name James Peter Sabatino — was busted at a Coral Gables hotel, while having sex with a teenage girl, according to police.

“He lived like a king,” said Miami Beach police Sgt. Bobby Hernandez.

Now, he’s living the life of a Miami-Dade County jail inmate.

At 5 foot 6 and 360 pounds, the 36-year-old Sabatino hardly cut a regal figure. But somehow he was able to convince a host of hoteliers that he was a big-shot businessman needing to entertain a gaggle of important corporate clients. And that the bill should be charged to his employer.

The name of that employer changed depending on the hotel, police reports said. At the Eden Roc, he claimed to work for Warner Bros. and needed three rooms. Three days and $7,000 in unpaid invoices later, he was gone.

Next stop: South Beach’s SLS Hotel, where he arrived in a black Honda Civic. This time he said he worked for the record label Roc-A-Fella and that he was there to entertain the rapper J. Cole. The hotel hooked him up with two $697-a-night private villas and one $296-a-night room. Once the bill hit $16,000, he and his posse took off.

From there, “Sabat” landed at the South Beach Hilton, posing as a Sony executive. He really outdid himself at the Hilton, running up $150,000 in charges over the course of five weeks — $100,000 of that for champagne alone, police said.

Meanwhile, he was leaving a trail of clues — a hotel key, a pawn shop receipt. Police gathered the bread crumbs and pieced together a picture of a consummate conman.

Soon, with the added assistance of U.S. marshals, the Greater Miami and the Beaches Hotel Association was able to send out a bulletin (with photo) warning operators about Sabat/Sabatino.

A manager at the Hyatt Regency in Coral Gables saw the bulletin and recognized him as a guest who had checked in last Friday, asking for several rooms, including the presidential suite.

The manager called police. When officers arrived at 2 a.m., they found their man in bed, having consensual sex with a 17-year-old girl, police said.

Officers found $50,000 worth of champagne in Sabatino’s car.

Sabatino had two outstanding warrants at the time of his arrest, one from Broward County and the other from a federal probation violation.

Sabatino — whose father once managed a restaurant owned by the sons of infamous New York City mobster Paul Castellano — has a history of white-collar crime that began when he was a teenager.

At 18, Sabatino posed as a Blockbuster exec and was somehow able to accumulate 262 tickets to the 1995 Super Bowl in Miami. He sold them for $170,000 then went on the lam, but turned himself in six months later, saying he was tired of life on the run.

When he was 22, according to news accounts, Sabatino threatened to “cut the [bleep]ing heads off” federal prosecutors investigating his uncle and other alleged South Florida organized crime figures.

In a plea deal, federal prosecutors dropped a slew of charges, including ones stemming from Sabatino’s alleged threats to kill then-President Bill Clinton and his brother, Roger, decapitate a federal judge and two prosecutors, and blow up the federal courthouse in downtown Fort Lauderdale.

Sabatino, now facing fresh charges of grand theft, organized fraud and unlawful sexual acts with a minor, is being held at the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center on $55,000 bond.

Rakoff Blocks NY Ban On Credit Card Swipe Surcharges

By Pete Brush

Law360, New York (October 03, 2013, 3:07 PM ET) -- U.S. District Judge Jed S. Rakoff invoked free speech grounds Thursday to block a state ban on credit card surcharges, handing a victory to merchants who want to charge extra for swipes — and a Washington lawyer who brought the case told Law360 he will soon target other state statutes.

Attorney Deepak Gupta of Gupta Beck PLLC applauded Judge Rakoff, who issued an injunction blocking an Empire State statute, General Business Law Section 518, which says "no seller in any sales transaction may impose a surcharge on a holder who elects to use a credit card in lieu of payment by cash."

The problem, according to Rakoff, is that the law bans surcharges but doesn't ban merchants from taking the opposite approach — simply offering discounts to customers who pay cash.

"This virtually incomprehensible distinction between what a vendor can and cannot tell its customers offends the First Amendment and renders section 518 unconstitutional," the judge said.

Gupta said Thursday he fully expected the Second Circuit to take a look at the decision but vowed to target nine other states that feature such bans — California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Kansas, Maine, Massachusetts, Oklahoma, Texas — in the very near future.

He declined to say which state specifically might be next, but said the filings would come soon.

“It's a free-speech victory for merchants, but it's also an economic victory for consumers,” Gupta said.  “These laws protect credit card industry profits by hiding the true costs of credit cards.” 

Visa Inc. and MasterCard Inc. agreed to remove contractual language barring retailers from describing higher prices for credit card transactions as surcharges as part of a recent national class action swipe-fee settlement.

That brought the state statutes to the front lines, and the New York federal lawsuit was filed soon after.

“If consumers are made aware of swipe fees and determine that they are too high, consumers will use a different payment method, and banks and credit card companies will have to lower their fees to attract more business,” the June complaint says.

The plaintiffs are represented by Deepak Gupta, Gregory A. Beck, Brian Wolfman and Jonathan E. Taylor of Gupta Beck PLLC and by Gary B. Friedman and Tracey Kitzman of Friedman Law Group LLP.

The case is Expressions Hair Design et al. v. Eric T. Schneiderman et al., case number 1:13-cv-03775, in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York.

$55K bond?  Really?  That does not seem like a lot, considering the allegations and his previous record (especially 'being on the lam'.

So teshuva to you means how they relate to "the system"? ???

ETA: Here's another nice article I liked to which is also a response to the same Pew study:

Aish: I Am Chabad! (http://www.aishfl.com/purplesheet/)

Not to imply the articles are in any way related/comparable.

Not what I was coming to say.  I've yet to see anyone that loves our system yet went/stayed OTD. Not saying that it doesn't exist, just that's my experience and that it makes sense to guess the same here.

Since the article is way too long, here is the money quote-

"The legend of the "wild, wild West" lives on despite Robert Dykstra's finding that in five of the major cattle towns (Abilene, Ellsworth, Wichita, Dodge City, and Caldwell) for the years from 1870 to 1885, only 45 homicides were reported — an average of 1.5 per cattle-trading season.

In Abilene, supposedly one of the wildest of the cow towns, "nobody was killed in 1869 or 1870....Only two towns, Ellsworth in 1873 and Dodge City in 1876, ever had 5 killings in any one year."

Weird. If she's worried than she shouldn't give candy to anyone, giving candy to some kids and letters to those SHE considers obese would be called bullying in my book...

The guy in the video makes a great point. The kids now will know forever that their father thinks they're so ugly that he divorced and sued his wife (their mother) over it. And not only that, but the court agreed that they were ugly, otherwise it would've had no basis to award him any money.

Not bad.  Mostly the obvious but I found this one interesting:

Quote
5. DON’T YELL AT YOUR SPOUSE.
I’m not talking about the angry kind of yelling. I’m talking about the lazy kind of yelling. The kind of yelling you do when you don’t want to get up from your television show or you don’t want to go ALL THE WAY UPSTAIRS to ask her if she’s seen your keys. It really doesn’t take that much effort to go find her, and yelling (by nature) sounds demanding and authoritative.
IF I COULD HAVE A DO-OVER: I’d try to go find her anytime I needed something or wanted to know something, and I’d have both gratitude and manners when I did. I always hated when she would yell to me, so why did I always feel it was okay to yell to her?

America's new 'dream cities': Which Cities Americans Are Moving to – and Escaping From (http://finance.yahoo.com/blogs/daily-ticker/cities-americans-moving-escaping-154840318.html?l=1)
Conservative Americans are moving to "well-churched" places in one state, while liberals are flocking elsewhere. ....

"...In Shaping Our Nation, Barone explains a new way Americans define an enduring urge: “to pursue dreams and escape nightmares.” Today's nightmare cities, Barone says, are mostly familiar ones: Detroit, Cleveland, Buffalo, and other former factory towns that no longer have enough jobs to support a shrinking population. The new dream cities tend to be ones in which low taxes and low housing costs are fostering population growth and prosperity: Houston, Dallas-Ft. Worth, Nashville, Atlanta and several “mini Atlantas” including Charlotte, Raleigh-Durham and Jacksonville..."

Selling 1/600th of amazon revenue has no connection to participating in 1/600th of their sales.

If they sell higher priced items than the amazon average, they could be selling 1/800th, 1/1000th or whatever their real numbers are.

It's impossible to know for a fact that an event of this nature did not happen. Therefore your statement can only reflect a belief that you hold.

So you stand corrected.

For the other side of the story, the guy was using their trademark intentionally, and there isn't really any other way to tell him to stop besides sending a cease and desist letter. This isn't really the "big company harasses little guy who thinks up a cute name that sounds funnily like big company" story.

Why should they care to tell him to stop? He's not profiting more because of the name, and he's not causing them to profit any less. It's ridiculous.

They need to protect their trademark if they don't want to lose it.
Sure, if you look at any individual case it's just a little guy who's not costing them anything. but put them all together and suddenly you lost your trademark...

I thought that letter was awesome, but Starbucks did nothing wrong here, they're just doing what they need to do...

Come on, all those other stories you are talking about are not like this.
I think you are missing the point. I don't think you want me to post a hundred links that mimic exactly what happened in the Catholic church.

When it comes to children I don't care if the accusations are against the Pope. I will side with the children until it is proven otherwise.

You mean like this: http://articles.philly.com/1993-11-13/news/25947071_1_steven-j-cook-sexual-abuse-cardinal-bernardin

In the end the allegations were proven false and the man recanted what he said. The Cardinal was made stronger because of this. I would hope so will this Rabbi if the allegations are also false.

You would have to ask him but I take it to mean he was brought even closer to God.

Your attitude stinks ...🙊

I assume there are plenty of people who aren't Jewish who could accomplish that. We are a very pro Israel country.
Why choose someone who could be perceived as having a conflict of interests.

OTOH, I hear this question being offensive if asked about a black or Latino man being an ambassador to [fill in the check] so maybe it's not a fair question

Someone Jewish knows the Israeli mentality a lot better. Precisely because Canada is such a pro Israel country, sending someone with Israel's best intentions in mind doesn't seem like a conflict of interests.
