Re: Do you Daven?
I heard of an exercise to do with children to help them grow in their attachment to Hashem that I found to be helpful as an adult.
Each day write down something good that Hashem has done for you. (I recently read that writing 3 good things down each day, helps grow a good attitude.)
Each day write down something you did that shows your 'strength' - an accomplishment or 'kovesh es yitzro' type of action.
When you pay attention, you see how Hashem is with you every step of the way.  This may help some people have more energy to daven.
This is something we try to do with our kids too, with a slight variation,  we talk about the best and worst part(s) of everyone's day. It definitly helps the kids  (and myself) gain perspective. It also is a great catalyst for meaningful conversation with your kids and helps get some insight into how they feel. If I would just ask them how thier day was, I'd get a one or two word amswer.

Re: Why is our divorce rate rising drastically?
Let me ask a crazy question. Is this so bad? What's more important, staying married or being happy? As Louis CK once said "no good marriage has ever ended in divorce."
So rephrase the ops question: "why are more people unhappy in their marriage?"

Re: Why is our divorce rate rising drastically?
Before talking about how today's kids are whatever think back on your mind what your parents or grandparents thought when you were that age.
In fact I argue that kids today are more resilient than ever before, after all they were raised by our (inept) generation.

Re: Pesach Programs and False Advertising
Well. You actually posted two ads, for two different programs, AND NEITHER OF THEM LISTS THE NAME OF THE HASHGOCHO! (except if Zika Free is the latest Badatz Mehadrin...).

The fact that such programs fill up without even feeling the need to put a reputable name that people can rely upon for the Kashrus on Pesach is simply amazing.
Why are you assuming no one inquires about thr hashgacha when they call for more info? There's also no pricing on the smillow ad, do you question how people can go to these programs withoit even knowing what its going to cost them?

I really hope he doesnít sell have to give it more than a month. It can (and will) go back up very quickly too.
He should double down now, its at a bargain, real value.

Re: Ask AJ Edelman Anything: DDF Member And Member Of The 2018 Israel Olympic Team! Awesome job AJ, I don't think I've ever cared to watch the skeleton before let alone being glued, watching the entire 2 heats! You are certainly accomplishing your goal, even the announcers say so :). Good luck in the next heat.
 I assume you cant answer now, but the announcers kept talking about how difficult this track is, are they right? Where would this track rank on our list of most difficult tracks?

Re: Are You An Organ Donor?  As an aside, by being an organ donor your death  becomes much more valuable to the medical field than your life. Ask icu personnel how/if this affects how they treat patients.

Re: Torah stuff that doesnt make sense
Would this be correct? You can question things for the purpose of understanding why they are true but not question if they are true?
You can question if something is true, but in order to do so you must have a great deal of knowledge on the topic. Like @timt s post, it would be ludicrous for some non college educated guy to disagree with a doctors recommendations, based on years of research, to get vaccinated. He can question why, and try with his limited knowledge, to understand the subject at hand, but to have an opinion on the veracity of vaccination is misguided at best.

Re: So Big Bang theory needs.....Emunah
I am confused. His point was science is another form of religion?
His point was that they hide behind behind their claim to be the alternative to religion  and are based off of logical well researched facts (science)  but if you dig a little deeper it really requires a huge leap of faith in the different  theories and is no more grounded than their views on religion.
But it removes shibud making it alot more appealing.

Yes, a few. She's on board with good suggestions but she doesn't wanna deal with cash.
Does she pay the bills? If not let her handle that for a few months so she sees where all your money is going.

There is no better online banking system period.
Their online banking is in a different league than any other bank I've used. It's not comparable.

Don't use their online deposits and BP is straight forward. Actually easier than Chase. On Chase's new interface how do I BP an individual?
Just don't add an act number.
Or use qp.

Re: Smoking Meats
I think Iím going back to foil. I didnít get what all the hype was about the butcher paper.
AFAIK its to avoid being called a crutch
Butcher paper allows more moisture out so you still end up with  semi solid bark.
The few times I've used butcher paper have made a significant difference.

There are hospitals with severe shortages of these masks, medical personnel who are at the forefront trying to save ppls lives need these more than anyone else. Maybe see if you can get these to some of the hospitals.

Re: N95 Masks Hospitals are telling the Docs that they can only use 1 mask per day due to the shortage, which is highly ineffective, but go ahead and make a few bucks while our much needed medical professionals put their lives at risk.

Re: N95 Masks
Why are you ganging up on him? Go buy it from him for a hospital if you want! He is not charging $100 each.
Its not really him, but It gets me really mad that my wife and other hospital personnel  have to risk there lives every day at the hospital, cant call out for any reason at this point and cant get there hands on a mask because people have been hording them to make a few dollars.

Re: COVID-19 (Wuhan Novel Coronavirus) Pandemic Master Thread

In US? Where?

My daughter tells me that results from a few days of testing IGG immunity are rolling in on antibody tests and they are very weird. People who tested negative on nasal swab COVID tests multiple times are positive for antibodies and healthcare workers who were absolutely exposed to many many people with positive symptoms are testing negative for antibodies.

Mount sinai south nassau.  As with everything covid-19 related information, its probably to soon to be close to conclusive yet.

Re: COVID-19 (Wuhan Novel Coronavirus) Pandemic Master Thread
All I can say is my daughter, an RN treating confirmed positive patients left and right, has had symptoms like cough, slight fever, loss of taste and smell yet...tested negative for antibodies.
Seems consistent with everything else related to covid-19 - nothing makes sense.
Although cant it just be that  she hasn't fully recovered yet and developed those antibodies?

Re: COL video about Maimonidies, a must watch
there is more on the video, it's a response to that video that has been circulating from a nurse practitioner who is not on the front lines talking about NYC. This video and some others from nurses on the front lines should be watched.

Re: SBA PPP and EIDL Small Business Loans (some money is forgivable)
This is what banks were/are getting:
In the CARES Act:
A .5% fee on loans below $350,000.00
A .3% fee on loans between $350,001.00 and $2,000,000.00
A 1% fee on loans between $2,000,001.00 and higher

In the Response and Relief Package:
A 50% fee on loans below $50,000.00 (capped at $2,500)
A 5% fee on loans between $50,001.00 and $350,000.00
A 3% fee on loans between $350,001.00 and $2,000,000.00

CRAZY increase.
Keep in mind this is what the banks get, EU is a broker and they only get a portion of that and are passing on 20% of their portion.
