Plenty of people in other countries are willing to work for less because their cost of living is lower doesnt mean that they are any less capable.
Ive heard a radio commercial from verizon offering this but you have to be realistic if you want something good you should pay for it. There are plenty of freelancers who would work for $3-$4/ hour.
They are all pretty much the same but non of them is high end even if they charge higher.
You would need 85 muslims to win for every one win from an orthodox jew. And Im pretty sure there is at least one orthodox jew on that list.
However I agree that such comparisons are childish.
Didnt essex move to ave M and e 19?
Schreiber’s empty donuts – there are here already!
I dont mind them banning the sale of raw milk because we can still drink it if we wanted to by getting a cow.
What bothers me about FDA is that they will never review any natural cures (vitamins, herbs…etc) so are they really operating in our best interest? Or do they only care about the lobbyists from drug companies who pay them off?
If you believe that parnasa comes from Hashem then whats the purpose to lie?
With a lie you might get a higher salary but if you werent supposed to get it Hashem will probably make you lose it in some way. Why would you want to go through that headache?October 6, 2010 2:38 pm at 2:38 pm in reply to: What does this mean, its a quote from the Kotzker. #699361
I was referring to:
“This is the way of Torah: Eat bread with salt, drink water in measure, sleep on the ground, live a life of deprivation – but toil in the Torah!…” (Avos 6, 4)October 6, 2010 1:56 am at 1:56 am in reply to: What does this mean, its a quote from the Kotzker. #699355
I dont agree with your second part about mixing Ruchniyus and Gashmiyus.
To aquire great Torah knowledge you need to give up Gashmiyus but otherwise its fine to mix those two together.
Its our goal to bring Ruchniyus into our every day lives to uplift our Gashmiyus.
There are rich people around who could do this but somehow i never heard of it being done.

I hear that in Kiev, Ukraine it usually goes for around 250k US dollars. (dont know about this year)
How do we know that Avrom Avinu wore a hat and jacket wherever he went?
Well, it says: Veilech Avrom…
And do you think Avrom Avinu would go anywhere without his hat and jacket?
I would like a way to go directly to the last post of any thread. Here are my suggestions how it can be implemented:
Next to a thread name have a little symbol and by clicking it you’ll go directly to the last post.
Or by clicking on the number of posts which are already written after the thread name.
Or let each user set up his preference (also go to first or always go to last post)
And the last way is the most simple but least effective way is once the person entered a thread he’ll see a link to click so he can go directly to the last post whether its on this page or not.
Can you please explain why its not an issue?
Would cooking with unfiltered water that might contain copepods treif up our pots?
Rice is very good because it is cooked in water and it absorbes it so it helps you get hydrated also.
No junk food, no spicy foods, and try to avoid fatty food and fried things because body uses up water to digest those.
Dont soda and juice manufacturer use tap water? Did anyone check it for copepods?September 14, 2010 5:13 pm at 5:13 pm in reply to: #695774
You are asking whats permitted but your friends focus is money. So you have to decide whats more important for you.
This thread started with someone saying that its difficult to pay tuition.
And Moq was the first person to mention about giving money and in his post he mentions:
“Poor OP is in pain; not a question of fair. Question of HELP. “????? ?????? ?? ???? ???? ?? ???’.”
So my assumption was that we are giving money to help OP to pay her tuition.
(i still didnt send my check because i ran out of checks but im considering sending cash by mail to make sure i take care of it before R”H)
Sushi Room (ave P and e 4th) they claim to have over 50 dressings i just go for standard stuff.
Moq, should we just send it in or should we somehow note it to go towards the original posters tuition?
I noticed that you wanted 4 people to match you but so far only 2 others came forward, thank you: “Why Do I Even Bother” and “BP Totty”.
I dont want this thread to be wasted so i’ll match funds for 2 other people. ($200)
Well, you can buy “Mishna Berurah for Windows” and you can copy and paste from there. Otherwise, there is no free version of this text online.
Many of us have fallen to the political fight in this issue.
1) Why do we call it ground zero?
Its not at ground zero its 2 huge blocks away so that shouldnt be the problem.
2)Also, why is the question to build or not to build when there is already a fully functional mosque there?
My problem with this whole project is this weird imam and his ties with terrorists. He should be investigated with the money and then im sure the project will be canceled.
HebrewBooks.org you can download a pdf and then copy/paste from there.
Well each 30 year old participant had a chance to play the game a few times but still managed to lose and its possible that some of those loses were for narishkite reasons like heel getting stuck and so on.
Some people are very stubborn with their demands and I say: you can either be stubborn or married.
I dont mean to offend anyone and I know that not everyone got a fair opportunity im just talking about those that did.
BP Totty “you realze this means 2 mother-in-laws!”
Yes that will insure that the guy actually sits in kollel the whole day.
The 2 wives idea might be a good idea to insure that each family has 2 incomes. 🙂
On a serious note… i think people shouldn’t be affraid of a shidduch where the girl is older than the guy. And the only way to get rid of this stupid concept is to start teaching our kids that it’s ok if mommy is older than tatty.
Sometimes just reading the words of a prayer may not be enough. Hashem wants us to change through our prayers and segulos help us with it. Whichever way it happens but once we change then the decrees against us may change. When you go to a kever of a tzadik to pray somehow your kavonos may be a bit stronger. Because by doing something extra (something you dont usually do) you feel like your prayers will be more likely heard and answered so you concentrate on them better.
So i think segulos are needed for some of us to fool ourselves into praying with more attention. And once we do that enough times im sure we will change and our mazal will change with us.
(I think people can make up their own segulos as long as it leads you to pray better and to grow spiritually then it should work. However, it is obviously better to follow our tradition and only use the segulos that were passed over to us.)
How do you define “mixed swimming/bathing”?
Can 2 guys swim together?
How about a father and a daughter?
Then why not husband and a wife?
Its a good solution for parents who are lazy, impatient and dont know how to talk to kids.
Respect needs to be earned its not enough to just be a nebach OTD kid to get my respect.
Can a nebach OTD earn my respect? Sure, with actions that I would be proud of!
Mishna in Pirkey Avos 2::2 basically says that a person should learn and work together. Explanation brought by artscroll mentions that a person who only learns without working will come to do an avera. For example money from support will not be enough and then he’ll be desperate to find a job that pays enough to cover all the bills and will be forced to steal (or work dishonestly).
Generally, I think not enough people are learning halachas of business before going into the business world and then fall into temptations.
Those services usually start from $500. I had the same problem and was able to fix it with software. Here is a copy of a free software that might be able to help you:
If this doesnt work there is a more serious software around $30 that does a much better job. (i’ll try to find the name of it if you need it)
Whats DISHONEST about it is asking people to vote for YOUR picture. I understand someone asking us to vote for whoever we think is the most deserving of the prize but otherwise you are asking us to lie. midvar sheker tirchak! (stay away from a lie)
Before anyone tries to argue with me i’ll say this… I’m a programmer and i can easily send hundreds of fake votes to any contestant. Do you think i should do that? And do you think sending 1 vote from 100 fake people isnt the same thing?
From the times that i know… I was specifically rejected for my health issue after i spoke about on 3rd date and another time on 9th date. However, it worked fine on the 5th date and i got married. Dont worry about it and with the right one it just works. Just make sure to mention…
1)How it affects you right now/future
2)And let the person know that you are ready to discuss it and answer any follow up questions.
