Why do you assume it’s an anti-computer event. I was under the impression that it is somewhat “pro-computers” – when used properly, and this event is supposed to teach us how to use it properly (filters, shmira, proper chinuch, etc).
I’ve seen a number of statements from R’ Matisyahu were he said that if he could make an effective ban of the internet he would. Even though this isn’t the goal of the asifa, it isn’t embracing the technology, just tolerating it.
No. Posting the lyrics would be a copyright violation. (Although singing them isn’t)May 2, 2012 6:05 am at 6:05 am in reply to: Warning: A very sneaky and effective virus that steals online banking info. #881056
It must be a slow day at the NY Post. This trojan is over 2 years old and isn’t much worse than alot of more current viruses. Just because a journalist gets a virus doesn’t make it significant.
Mods: Please close this thread.
And if for whatever reason its not for women, should they change that for the relatively minor group of single mothers ?
But should they exclude women just to add a few more names of supporting rabonim? If the asifa is so important they should just tell those rabonim to edited.
So, let’s say, if some recording artist at, let’s say, Jewish Music, Inc., by the name of, let’s say, JJJ, uses a Carlbach tune without permission, as his own, and now Jewish Music, Inc. says it’s assur to copy; that’s ok? (All names are made up).
JJJ (or Jewish Music, Inc.) is required to get a mechanical license from whoever owns the Carlebach portfolio. JJJ (or Jewish Music, Inc.) owns the copyright for the new recording.
Mechanical licenses are mandatory so whoever own the Carlebach portfolio cannot deny it to JJJ. Going a step further you can get a mandatory mechanical licence for any publicly released music. (Even music that was just released.)
I don’t read German but I thought that you did. The page is availible im multiple languages and I just copied the German one. For everyone else here’s the english version:
SWISS from 2002 onwards
2. Its a small inconvenience affecting a small number of people.
It doesn’t matter. A resident of Sunset Park who wishes to travel to Midwood has a legaly recognized interest in the streets of Borough Park. Just like a resident of Borough Park who whishes to travel to Manhatten has an interest in the streets of Kensington.
The Jewish calendar is not accurate for long term calculations. The rules that the sanhedrin were using were designed to validate witnesses and determine dates in the absence of witnesses. Also the two foundations of the calendar were known far before Hillel, Thales knew the length of the month accurately enough to predict an eclipse and Meton established a calendar with a 19 year cycle.
This is what the swissair dot com website says:
SWISS ab 2002
You really need to define portable (and whether you want to make real matzah). Forno Bravo makes wood fired pizza ovens mounted on trailer chassis.
Swiss Air went out of business 10 years ago.
I don’t think this is usual. I was told by a member that he charges $10 and fills his own tank with $10 worth of gas.April 10, 2012 2:29 am at 2:29 am in reply to: Location of Bnei Brak Same Today as During Chazal? #866985
It is not the same city. At the time of the founding of the modern city there was an arab villige named Ibn Ibraq at the site of the ancient city which is now the Hiriya landfill.
I think Honda is only measuring the tank, unlike NASCAR who also measures the fuel line
Berachos 24a and Kiddushin 70a. If you need a Passuk, Song of Songs 2:14.
So far I don’t have any information on it other than the date and location. I don’t read much printed material so I may have missed some information but the last advertisement I saw didn’t give me any more information than the first announcement did. (And the only contact information was a mailing address.)
You have to admit, it is a good question.
Why? Are you looking for a Chassidus where you will have no personal connection to the Rebbe?
so who oversees the financial and accounting on the township level?
The Office of the New Jersey State Comptroller is an independent office created to bring greater efficiency and transparency to the operation of all levels of New Jersey’s government.
The office audits government finances, reviews the performance of government programs and examines government contracts. It is responsible for conducting audits of the executive branch of state government, public institutions of higher education, independent state authorities and local governments and boards of education. The office also is responsible for the oversight of Medicaid funds and acts to detect and recover funds that are improperly expended.
Could someone kindly care to tell me how I should post from my phone. (Rotary dial)
Are the mods playing tricks with the approvals. I’m pretty sure that when I made my last post Kozov’s first post (368704) wasn’t there.
My aversion for this thread has not improved after 7 months…
Yet you chose to bump a thread that you had not previously been involved in. (Or perhaps you have another screenname?)
I eat gebrochts, but I totally get why the hotels do not serve them. If you have a guest who is a diabetic, if you make non-sweet, tasty low-carb food for the meal, everyone can safely eat and enjoy it. But if you make sweet-sauced foods, and other stuff that is sugary, the guest cannot partake. So yes, even though it might seem like catering to the diet of a minority of people, nevertheless you, the, knaidel-eater, can still eat ALL the food that is being prepared and served in the non-gebrochts hotel, whereas the reverse would not be true for the gebrochts-only consumer.
If the hotels only served diabetic foods, I’d accept your analogy.
I think my response got blocked due to a link but neither Lakewood or Ocean have a comptroller. The state comptroller’s office oversees municipalities without a comptroller.
Mods: whats wrong with an nj.gov link?
There is no way to escape death but you don’t have to live a life full of fear.
I already know what the definition of freedom is. If Cheirus doesn’t mean freedom than come up with a different word to translate to, don’t try to redefine freedom.
Why doesn’t Vizhnitz eat fish on Pesach?
Because the Cheremosh River isn’t a good source for fish.
With regard to mei peiros, there are people who do eat matzos with foods made with mei peiros but no water. Charoses is an example of the latter.
But wine is one of the “7 liquids” so it is more like water than fruit juice.
Regarding your third point lets take a hypothetical lottery where the chances for a $50,000,000 jackpot are 1:100,000,000. Most lottery players would treat the EV as $.50 (actualy most lottery players are too stupid to know what an EV is). However, if they actually had $50,000,000 it would be worth less to them so the EV really should be computed against what the perceived value of the jackpot would be if they actually had that much money. I’ll get back to you on how to calculate “perceived value” as one cannot just go to a billionaire and ask him how much $50,000,000 is worth.
Your numbers are wrong but more importantly the order doesn’t matter so we’re dealing with combinations rather than permutations.
The first 5 balls are from a pool of 56 and the last is from a pool of 46.
Your math is wrong. The odds for Mega Millios is 1/(C(56,5)*46) or 1:175,711,536 making a positive expected value (ignoring shared jackpots) a common occurance.
What is this “18 minute matzos” business. ISn’t all matzah under 18 minutes from start to finish, or it becomes chometz?
No, dough that is continuosly worked will never become Chometz.March 26, 2012 4:51 am at 4:51 am in reply to: Seder/Yom Tov non-gebrokts Main and Side dish recipes, please #865967
Mods: Why is there no section for Gebrukts recipes? I eat Gebrukts but my Minhag is not to eat mushrooms so I’d like a non-mushroom section.
…he helps all types of people…
What else do you need to know?
For Chinese auctions I use the “No purchase nessasary” option.
Buy sheet music for songs that you don’t know. BTW it’s ear, not air.
There are different Shittos in how Eruv Tavshilin works so if you can’t eat the food on Yom Tov, it’s not so clear whether it can be made for Shabbos.
I need instant cheer (NOT CHEERIOS!!).
In a few weeks, you’ll be missing the Cheerios.
dash: Is that the number of tickets needed or the number of combinations?
Dash- is that the reall #?
Does anyone know how many tickets you’d need to buy to purchase every number combination in New York Lotto? (Every $1 ticket gives you two number sets.)
Bourbon is a byproduct of Scotch production.
Please close this thread.
Bourbon can be produced anywhere in the United States. Tennessee Whiskey must be produced in Tennessee (and according to NAFTA Tenessee Whiskey is Bourbon because it complies with all the requirements for Bourbon).
How about we don’t call it a raffle, but rather a donation with incentives.
This has been going on for as long as I can remember. Have you ever seen the fine print that says “suggested donation” on charity mailings or “no purchase required” on other contests?
Any filter can be defeated by a user with administrative access to a PC. For some people, physical access is as good as administrative access. The best filtering is through a gateway that the users do not have physical access to.
I don’t know what you mean by “raffle mailings”. It is illegal to send raffle tickets through the USPS regardless of what rate class you are using. Oorah sends numerous mailings throughout the year and apparently someone there figured out that it is cheaper to use periodical rates than non-profit rates.
I rented one here. For 88 bucks. It doesn’t have snow tires, and I’m sliding all over the place. They don’t even pretend to plow the roads here.
Does it have P185/65 R14 tires?March 14, 2012 4:06 am at 4:06 am in reply to: Gathering regarding Internet on May 20 at Shea stadium, space for 42000 people! #878461
i heard many many yeshivos will be attending
Dash why don”t u come attend?
I can’t make a decision to attend based on the limited information I found.
Bochurim didn’t go into groceries etc.
The fact that someone can’t go to a grocery is more of an indication that they’re doing something wrong than that they’re doing something right.
I originally wrote a better response but I edited it because I didn’t think the mods would let it through.
