2. Local food establishment supervision. This is a totally different story. The OU does have the standards and procedures, but in these cases it is much more dependent on the local Mashgiach and the owner of the establishment. I don't know what their standards and procedures are, but I'm sure they are quite transparent and can be asked. In this area they are not necessarily better or worse than others, they just have their standards. It's not common to have a dual supervision on a food establishment, but it's likely that in places where those exist, the OU might be relying on the other supervision for mashgiach hiring and oversight.

This is one particular area that ou is much better then most in regards to mashgiach timidi, who hires them etc..

In KCLs own words that their hasgacha is mainly on the person.. this whole thing kinda actually makes sense...

Did the same store work with non variable load?
Yes

34
not true
-1. I bought yesterday a bunch of BB variable and I got the coupon
It's possible it was store specific, cs told me they had a lot of of people try and it didn't work, I insisted they try it for me and didn't work either..

35
He was referring to amazon.
BB works fine.
I didn't qoute his post because I wasn't referring to Amazon. And no, bby only works for cards with actual denominations not the variable load

36
The variable reloads are not working either

Who does it inconvenience? think about it for a second.

If you are not a regular - do you want to chance that 3 year old information on GoDaven is correct?

Go Daven info happens to be very accurate, they recently revamped their site and is fantastic.
Over the last few weeks I found myself using it many times.  People who are semi- regulars but don't necessarily remember the exact times find it really helpful...

Credit Cards / Re: Virtual Credit Cards

I believe BoA has web-based virtual CCs. Cap1 has a virtual CC Chrome plug-in that actually works reasonably well.
Re cap1 it's not available on the spark business card

Incredible Moment! Rabbi Michel Chill, a longtime educator from Monsey, New York, was slated to take a flight with his family heading from New York to Los Angeles.

Inclement weather delayed the flight for three hours. The pilot spotted the Rabbi and invited him into the cockpit to learn the daily quota of Talmud with him as they waited for a slot for takeoff.
Looks like Charles (Shalom?) Dadoun. I think he flies for UA.
Article in Mishpacha about Charlie Dadoun.. by Eytan Kobre. The above story is mentioned...

On The Road / Re: Combining IHG hotel reservations
« on: April 22, 2019, 12:34:03 PM »
Hi,
I was wondering, if I have 2 reservations on Holiday Inn (Free Anniversary nights) for a total of 2 days (one from each account) - is it possible to combine them somehow to a single reservation?

Thanks!
You can call the hotel to combine it, they'll possibly do it automatically if it's reserved under the same name.. if not then by check-in they'll do it for u

One of the main (if not the main) point of his speech was that the organizers of this event then went ahead and photoshopped the kol Korah and it was a big bizayon.


Is that true? Any shmoe probably went ahead and did this. Why make out the organizers as servants of the yetzer horah? And that this whole thing was one 'egel hazahav'?
Highly unlikely.

He was very upset about the Maacha and the cops as well etc.. from what I hear it only became a matzav/ the crowd grew exponentially after the cops were called (by a certain person והמבין יבין)
..besides what makes him think the organizers of the event arranged the kumzitz... (It seemed from the videos like a mob mentality more then anything else not something you can blame a specific person..)

Being that there were differences of opinions and even changed opinions reportedly because of pressure, a real explanation is due.. not just a "you gotta believe" especially today that sadly Rabbinim are fed all sorts of information...

His explanation that in the future it's gonna be a mixed concert...

Regarding that such a thing has never happened in Klal Yisroel.. um for the last (10?) years this has been going on in EY under the name kumzing or kumtantz.. iiuc with the bracha and support of R Aron Leib..  (besides for R Meilich Beiderman, R Mota Frank's kumzitzin)
