Re: Are you smarter than a 1st grader?
I would love to hear their take on it.  :)
Only 1 of them, who works in education went with the girl. She knew it immediately.   
Btw, if Peg wasnt also a common word or they used a name like  Meg, I think more people would figure it out.

Re: Are you smarter than a 1st grader?

I’m not. I am, however, the parent of a 6 yr old in the first grade. She’s learning the basics of Common Core and I predict that will be a headache in the future.
I’ll say this- right now my daughter is learning English. Specifically- how to build a sentence. I would assume that’s what the homework sheet is about. Nouns...

It could be, I think part of the issue is that we as parents dont know what the lesson in school was that the homework is reviewing leaving us to try and deduce. Its the same issue with the new way they do math. Trust me, I can figure out what 8+4 is, but unless I know what the learning method of using "blocks" or whatever method they used that day, I'm clueless. Luckily my daughter is a good student and knows most of the info, but if she was struggling I'd be unable to help her.

Re: BitCoin Master Thread This is pretty insane, thinking of changing my orginizations name to cryptoblockchainbitcurrency.
(Reuters) - Many obscure companies are pivoting operations or changing their names to cash-in on the cryptocurrency wave, in a trend reminiscent of the dotcom boom. Beverage maker Long Island Iced Tea ...

Re: Women in Jewish magazines

In general, I think that the more promiscuous society gets, the more insular frum communities will become as a counter-measure. Think about it this way: normally you keep alcohol in plain view at home. However, if a family member has an alcohol problem, you will start to hide it. If his problem gets worse, you will throw it out and stop buying alcohol altogether. If it gets more extreme, you may throw out any magazines that have advertisements for alcohol and tell your family to not mention the word “alcohol” at all etc..

Point is, women’s faces became “not tznius” when society started shoving women’s bodies in people’s faces.

That does not sound like a reasonable response. See chava for example of what happens when you make whats mutar assur.

Re: School Canceled due to...COLD !
It's likely just what the kids are prepared for. MSP kids have the proper winter attire for -10, CLE parents aren't buying their kids a new wardrobe for 1 day of -10, so schools cancel...

Miami kids don't play outside if it's 30 outside because they don't have the clothing for it... Same logic.
And in boca they send out this psa when the temp dips below 60:

Re: Why do some Jewish communities prohibit women from driving?
Beautifully said.

Unfortunately I've found that the concept you just stated exists only in chabad.
Or anywhere out side  of brooklyn and lakewood.
Its sad that we've  given the responsibility of chiniuch exclusively to the schools, to the extent that we can't  tolerate having someone in our kids schools that is  slightly diffrent than us.  we are paralyzed and have no way of imparting to our kids  what we believe  is important if they should c"v see something slightly diffrent.

Re: The Pros And Cons Of Where You Live

Wow, thanks so much for the quick responses! surprised no Cleveland suggestions  ;D
 Too far (approx 1.5 hour commute to battery park, plus must take into account need to have second car to drive to closest station etc) also, LIRR commute is pretty expensive.
 somewhat far (approx 1.2 hour commute to battery park), though not as costly as N Woodmere. also didnt get a great vibe for modox peeps when i visited (more of a frummer/black hat feel it seemed).
 possibility, but is there a growing modox community?
 I am not actually dying, just a lil sad that there arent better options in the tri-state area when i take a discerning gaze at the relevant communities.
I live in Willowbrook, Staten Island. I have a great commute to downtown (35/40 minutes on one express bus for $6.50 after metrocard bonuses), but modox community is dying and schools are weak (esp the lack of any high school options for girls on island).
 I want a lot, but u would think an "in-town" area like NY would have a place with good schools in walking/short bus-ride distance, with 4br houses with basements (for guests) and backyards around $1m.
i would drive if it would save time but that seems unlikely. Was toying with living in 5 towns, getting an electric car and driving in the HOV lane on the LIE but not sure how fast that really is...

Oy, you shouldn't need to spend $1m for that. If you would be willing to compromise  a little on some of those requirements.
I paid less than half of that, I have 4 bedrooms, finished basement with a guest suite, over a 1/4 acre property. But I'm not walking distance to schools. We also wouldnt consider our community a mo communtiy although we are very welcoming to all people.
