I'll admit my first thought when I read U of M was University of Maryland but that's probably because I live in the area.

same. Lived near there for 10+ years.

Model X has 3 rows. Model Y should as well.

I see. nice. Model X also has "Ludicrous mode" for 20% faster acceleration: https://www.tesla.com/modelx/design#battery

When will they make minivans?

The Model X looks decently spacious. Link: https://www.tesla.com/modelx It doesn't have a 3rd row, however it could possibly work well for families, strollers, etc...

Twerski said he's involved in $50M of these cases.
Which side is he on in which case?

seems from the interview that he is aware and has spoken to several involved people to know of $50M in 'investments' that creates that amount of loss, however this is not the amount that he is professionally involved with directly as a lawyer.

It seems that he knows that the total sum (of 5-6 separate stories) that he knows about totals in the area of $50M

Hafach ba vehafach ba dekula va

The Gemara brings countless lessons in all areas of finance, responsibility, prudence and caution.

absolutely, however many current students in school haven't yet mastered some basic levels of common sense.
Ideally these basic skills are taught at home, however in an era where some children see their parents and/or friends glamorizing Pesach trips/hotels, the 'fancy' cars that people own, and allowing themselves to be enamored by leadership or role models based on how (religious) they dress or who their parents were, then we have a large job ahead of us regarding educating some basic fundamental skills of community trust, priorities, and moral literacy, overall...

I'm going to be interviewed by him tomorrow.
What topics should I bring up?

reinforce caution, education, and that all deals need to be made in writing, and that we need to pass this onto the current generation.

Also, perhaps an emphasis on how personal credit follows each individual for a long time. It can be valuable when treated carefully.

Zev Brenner interview:

I just heard this interview. Excellent job. it's a start. As Dan said, "financial literacy" is a TOP priority to teach our children in school.

Are they opening a full-fledged pizza shop?

I think that they are going for a larger menu, as well.

Hi, my wife does a lot of baking - anyone have recommendations for getting a good price on decent-to-good chocolate chips for a good price? Tried looking online, but even when buying 25-lb bags, price per ounce came out similar to my local grocery.

Real, all-natural, good-quality 45%-72%-cocoa chocolate chips can be $4.50 - $5 per pound in 5 lbs bulk bags of mini-chips, Mega Chunks, etc plus approx $18-$22 two-day shipping for 20-30lbs. minimum order via www.californiagourmet.net

Shame, food and prices were a classic. I hope they keep some of the old recipes.

Yes, I can still taste those famous, delicious fried Mozzarella-sticks and marinara-sauce dip that they served there. Hoping that they will keep that on the menu, as well.

Lakewood Bingo......getting ready for tomorrow iy"h

great photo. The big question is: "How large is the parking lot"? (The bklyn one is very small and tricky to navigate/pull out.)

Can this lot fit 50-70 vehicles?

Looks like the type of place that will have seasonal bargains, unique imports/deals, and may be good for stocking up for the household 1-3x per month.

For regular weekly shopping, possibly the same local Lakewood stores as usual.

Been discussed ad nauseum.

Breads and challah are ok pareve.

Food Is chai kosher, the pastries are cholov Stam.
They claim that the dairy food uses cy ingredients. But the kitchen is cholov Stam so no go for many.

There are 2 mashgichim there and all greens are washed and checked. Challah is taken and a Shomer Shabbat Jew lights the fires.

Checked the link. Says only Chai Kosher Hashgocha: https://zakthebaker.com/kosher/
Posts a certificate link that does not show a certificate.
(Link -- no certificate: https://zakthebaker.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/zak-teh-baker-chai-k-kosher-certificate.pdf

We liked the honey whole wheat parve sourdough last visit. Perhaps the breads are baked in this separate parve kitchen?
