Re: Israel banning Tlaib and Omar! I think that from a PR standpoint, they should welcome them with open arms in their capacity as Congresswomen and say that from the rhetoric they espouse, they clearly don't have an accurate picture of Israel. They should give them grand tours and princely treatment. Then, after they return and keep talking against Israel, they will be fair game, and they won't have the excuse that they were't let in. Israel can say that were glad to show them the truth but they obstinately refused to see.

It would make more sense from the public perception standpoint.

No it doesn't. They were all Orthodox?

For the purposes of anti-Semitisim, just think of it as "visibly Jewish".

Ultra Orthodox is a slur, but that's a whole nother discussion

Re: DeBlasio Tweets out fake false news, this time sticking up for the NYPD!
When you only state part of a statue and take it out of context should I believe otherwise.

You posted: “shall apply only when audible signals are sounded from any said vehicle while in motion by bell, horn, siren, ”

The statue states: Except for an authorized emergency vehicle operated as a police vehicle or bicycle, the exemptions herein granted to an authorized emergency vehicle shall apply only when audible signals are sounded from any said vehicle while in motion by bell, horn, siren...
Since you are the go to guy for reading this type of stuff you care to explain to them what that statue means? That won't believe me.  :)
You might what to read the statue again.
I never said this. You and others are saying it is illegal for him to go through a red light without sirens on. That is not correct according to the statue.

If the first cell is A1, then B1 would be =A1+1. Then select B1 and you'll see a tiny box in the bottom right of the cell. Drag that down as far as you want.

Re: Excel Help and Problems The Stop Value needs to be the max value you want. So if you want 100 numbers, your stop value is 12445.

Re: 2019 Israeli election
So no majority means yet another election? WOW could you imagine if we had that here? We would run out of Kool-Aid.  :)

Not quite - essentially the President of the country will recommend to one of the two candidates to form a government - for a bunch of reasons, it's likely that he will turn to Bibi to do that - so he has a few weeks to broker a deal.

Can you explain in terms of our left, right and center? Who is who?

That's definitely complicated, but on a very simplistic level (I'm sure many will argue with these points):

The Right:
Likud - Bibi's party, the 'standard' right-wing party. Politically conservative, and religiously neutral/right leaning.
Shas - Sefardic Religious party - politically right, religiously right. Primary leadership and constituents are jews from Africa/France/Middle East Descent
UTJ (United Torah Judaism) - politically right, religiously right. Primary leadership and constituents are jews from Central/Northern European and American Descent
Yemina - a smaller politically right and religiously right-leaning party who's leaders (Shaked and Bennett) broke away from Likud

The "Center":
Blue and White - led by Gantz. This is a coalition of 3 parties, including the centrist Yesh Atid

Jewish Home - Lieberman's party - they are politically conservative, but somewhat anti-religious (for example, they are in favor of ending the draft exemptions for Charedim, but toe a hard line on the Palestinians, Iran, etc.) They are the outlier, because he politically disagrees with the left, and religiously with the right.

The Left (All politically left, and most are (at least) left-leaning when it comes to religion)
Joint Arab List - This is 4 smaller parties that generally represent that arab population and have Israeli Arab members of knesset. (Israeli Arab = Muslim or Christian Arabs that live within the 1967 borders and have full citizenship).
Labor - The party of Shimon Peres and Yitzchak Rabin, that's fallen off of the map. The old guard Israeli Left
Democratic Camp  - A coalition of parties that are the old-school Israeli "Extreme Left" - including Meretz.

Re: Honestly, honestly do you feel smartphones have improved your quality of life? I think the real question is are you happier since you adopted a smartphone. There is little doubt that we are more efficient and productive than earlier generations in good part due to smartphones ( despite the hours of time they cause us to waste)- remember waiting in line for hours just to pick up textbooks from B&N, or buying products off the shelf  that looked good but broke in no time because there were no user reviews available?

But are we happier, more satisfied, more thinking people? In my experience the answer is a resounding NO.

Re: US Politics/2016 Election Pick Your Poison Master Thread My take:
This whistleblower's allegation is very serious (should be obvious) and definitely warrants an investigation (should also be obvious). There are not enough facts out there yet to make a determination as to how deep this investigation should go and definitely not enough to know how factual the allegations are. That the allegations are hearsay is not relevant to this. Hearsay can be a good reason to investigate. The issue is that so many have already reached their verdict of either guilty or not guilty which by some strange coincidence is almost perfectly correlated with other opinions of theirs about the president. Every single fact is being interpreted to fit into the verdict they have already reached.

Re: Hyatt Awards And Upgrades Master Thread
Hyatt is telling me night is available on points but not for an award cert. Is that right?

Are you searching a block of nights in a row, and the hotel shows points availability for all nights?  If this is true, but when you look night by night, one or more nights don’t show availability, then the property is playing with availability by marrying nights together under stay minimums.  This has happened to me many times.  The easiest way around this is to search one night at a time and isolate which nights are under the stay minimum for availability, then book those nights together under points, and finally call Hyatt to have them reduce the reservation to the single night you actually want.  This unfortunately won’t help with cert only bookings, as single night availability is required, and even when calling in Hyatt often can’t convert the points booking to a cert if the reservation system is still using minimum stay requirements, etc.  This happened to me this month for a Hyatt Regency Austin stay.

No.

It just shows again why CNN and MSNBC are fake news. They are outraged, they cant stop speaking about this SCANDAL. By now we have all the same Dems, Biden, Nadler and others who are screaming racist using the same term by the Clinton impeachment. And CNN and MSNBC did not seem to think back then its a problem. Oh, because they were Dems. FAKE NEWS@
CNN and MSNBC are biased putzes.

Also, Donald Trump tried to use USA dollars to get a foreign nation to announce an investigation into his political rival, textbook grounds for impeachment.

Re: 2016 Election Pick Your Poison Master Thread
So you agree under this scumbag president the country is growing further apart than it has ever been!!!
After the last few pages I don't really want to bring up any previous presidents but in this context I think I have to. The country was pitted against each other under Obama because it was good for him politically. That divide grew exponentially through BO's 2nd term. And Trump capitalized on it to win and has pushed the 2 sides even further apart.
There have been times in our history that the nation has been at odds having nothing to do with who was in the White House. But I think the last 10 years have been caused by the 2 people who were supposed to lead the country. Hopefully there can be some unity (even while there is strong disagreement) soon but unfortunately I just don't see how that can happen in the near future without a major unifying event which would probably have to be a catastrophe.

Re: US Politics/2016 Election Pick Your Poison Master Thread
Judge Learned Hand:
Any one may so arrange his affairs that his taxes shall be as low as possible; he is not bound to choose that pattern which will best pay the Treasury; there is not even a patriotic duty to increase one's taxes.

Gregory v. Helvering, 69 F.2d 809, 810 (2d Cir. 1934)

Over and over again courts have said that there is nothing sinister in so arranging one's affairs as to keep taxes as low as possible. Everybody does so, rich or poor; and all do right, for nobody owes any public duty to pay more than the law demands: taxes are enforced exactions, not voluntary contributions. To demand more in the name of morals is mere cant.

Commissioner v. Newman, 159 F.2d 848, 851 (2d Cir. 1947) - dissenting opinion
Are these judges average people?

We know that many of the people who paylittle to no taxes are going to find it sinister that someone wealthy only paid 1000x more taxes and double the tax rate and not higher than that.

Re: PC friday question of the day.
When I look at the “common sense” that prevails outside of religion I see where that common sense leads to: broken homes, dysfunction, billions of people behaving as if in a rat race with little purpose in life, rampant depression and despair, widespread opioid and other drug abuse to escape the meaningless life people lead, and callousness towards human life in general. That’s  just the tip of the iceberg.
