Re: Kosher, Kashrus and Hechsherim Master thread
This sounds like you are referring to the myth that no heimishe product can be better than the OU since they need to rely on the OU for the basic ingredients. This is not the case. First of all, at this point there are many, albeit not all, basic ingredients with supervision other than the OU. Even without that some of the heimishe hechsherim will do their research into the specific OU ingredient before accepting it. While some at the OU will poke fun at the hechsherim which simply call up and ask if an ingredient is good, when speaking to them they will tell you how some will make sure to go to the plant and research exactly which psakim the OU is relying on for each individual ingredient that they allow.
Also there are legitimate chumros that some are makpid on. I manage the Hashgacha for several heimeshe companies produce at our plants. While we accept certain ingredients, they have them replaced for those productions.

Re: School Canceled due to...COLD !

I take my kid in the costco fridge every now and then to make sure he remembers what Cleveland feels like :))
funny story. Just talking with one of our caterers. Was scheduled to have refrigerated trailers by 3 events this Shabbos. Just got a call from the company saying that , they  are blessed to deliver but the refrigerated trailers won't stop all the food from freezing.

Re: Why is our divorce rate rising drastically?
This is such a loaded question. When you grow up with certain social norms and values driven into you by everyone around you, you come to think of your actions as voluntary, but are they? It's so complex. It's like the scientologists who willingly go in the "hole." If you ask them, they will tell you they are there voluntarily, but it's all brainwashed BS.
SO all societal values are the result of "brainwashing"?

Re: The Pros And Cons Of Where You Live I'm going to step on a landmine here. I grew up in various out of town communities, then lived and sent a child to school  & tutored boys for 4 years in Brooklyn  after which we then moved out of town. The Yahudus education, specifically in Shabbos concepts (6 yemei bereishes, etc.) & Meleches Shabbos, are considerably stronger out of town. I have found the "in-town" schools hyper focused on "covering ground" and "finishing" while the "out of town" schools were more focused on Yidishkeit.

Re: The Pros And Cons Of Where You Live
How many times did you grow up ???
for many of us growing was and is a constant process. For others it ends when they're about 3 years old.

Re: Pesach Programs and False Advertising
I don't know if it's a literal list. He mentioned offhand they're have to have a shabbos elevator, no kashering dishwashers, something about hachana issues. That's all I remember.
Shabbos locks
Shabbos elevator
Separate swimming (exclusively)
No rooms overlooking the pool (unless pool is tented)
Kosher eruv
No hachana

They will kasher dishwashers if done properly. All gaskets and seals removed. All screens and filters removed. Complete breakdown of all parts. If there is a belt, it's crucial to remove it. I have found entire sets of dishes (with dinner  :o under the belts. Then libun kal with a torch to all metal parts and hagala for all rubber parts.
We kasher box dishwashers by several clients for pesach and it's not a big deal.
There are programs that conform but have no interest in paying a hefty OU rate.
