Just Shmooze / Tulsa Anyone?
« on: November 13, 2020, 12:18:54 PM »
I was reading an article about the budding Cybersecurity marketplace in Tulsa, and I stumbled across this: https://tulsaremote.com/

The city of Tulsa will pay you $10k to move there and continue your remote work. I wonder what other cities are offering incentives like this, and does it grow or shrink after COVID?

Amazon & Walmart Deals / New Echo/ Echo Dot - Already Discounted
« on: September 24, 2020, 02:54:31 PM »
Amazon just announced it's new Echo Dot today - it's a larger rounder version with a better speaker. It looks like if you buy a 2 pack you get $20 off of both (10/each).

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07XJ8C8F5

Use Code DOT2PACK

So this brand new device - normally $50 is 80 for 2 if you pre-order

Also buy the 2 of the full-size Echos (normally $99/each) for $170 - Use Echo2PK

Just Shmooze / "Yiddish Double Entendre" names
« on: September 03, 2020, 01:29:30 PM »
A few weeks ago, there was a thread where someone asked about how to spell a certain name in Hebrew. That thread devolved into a discussion of various Hebrew names, and I asked a question about the "Yiddish Double Entendre" and it's sources, but didn't get an answer. Figured I'd give it a shot to ask again.

What do I mean by "Yiddish Double Entendre": People who have a Hebrew and Yiddish name that essentially mean the same thing:
Menchem Mendel
Yitzchok Azik
Nosson Nuta
Aryeh Leib
Kalonimus Kalman (although Kalonimus isn't hebrew)
Tzvi Hersh
Dov Ber

My questions:
- When and why did this start?
- How come it's for some names and not others? (For example, I've never met someone named Mordechai Mottel, or Yaakov Yankel)
- Are there any examples of women's names that fit this pattern?

Just Shmooze / Whoop Strap - anyone wearing?
« on: July 31, 2020, 02:08:30 PM »
Was thinking about getting a Whoop Strap -https://www.whoop.com (Here is an honest review - https://www.dcrainmaker.com/2020/05/whoop-3-platform-review.html - albeit mixed).

Of course the two key questions are:
- Can it be worn on shabbos?
- Will it be as effective if I only wear it 24/6?

While I know that most poskim don't allow people to wear smart watches on shabbos (I say most, because I really don't know of any). This isn't quite the same - it has no display. It has sensors that measure your heart rate, breathing, etc. It also has no buttons.

Obviously, the full purpose of this is to capture your vitals so the idea that would imply that the HR sensor is a psik reisha d'nicha lei - because the only reason you wear it is to capture the data.

On the flip side, it's tracking your health so that you can improve, but short of a few studies where it's being used to track heart issues or for alzheimers research, most people that are using it, are not in a pikuach nefesh situation.

I'm curious if anyone here that's shomer shabbos is using it and/or what they've found out about it's use on shabbos.

(Obviously, if I do decide to buy one, I'd consult my LOR, but figured I'd ask for other people's experiences with it).
