@Haifa and other who agree
Those who want to stare will do so regardless of a logo or non logo. Perhaps its better rather then have them staring all over to see if the name of the school is on it.
@OP – I would vote for a woman if she was qualified. It is sexist to say otherwise
kosherorlando.com has a shul and restauraunt
all parks have one vendor with kosher food. i ate there last time a threw most of it in the garbage. not worth it it was vile
google.com may be able to help also
Not sure there has ever been a time in world history that a man ran a conversation 🙂
@Zahavasdad – Labruite was horrible. I went to Pomegrnatae once and had them double wrap but was not worth the trouble especially if you are flying. A suitcase for food??May 31, 2011 6:14 pm at 6:14 pm in reply to: Were not Chassidish at all, but we go to Rebbes for Brachos #773247
I go to rebbes for brachos and can only say one thing. When asking the rebbe advice, I DO NOT take his opinion to an anonomous online chat to discuss. I assume you may have another rov that you can discuss these things with. You could also have told the rebbe that this is something that is difficult to do and see what he says. To blindly listen to him and nod your head and then to go YWN CR to debate is utter stupidity on your part!!!!!
nothing wrong with drinking in moderation
maybe he was having a lousy time and figured a little alchohol can take the edge off. Why is it his fault??
A beer does not make you drunk in small quantities.
not sure who R miller is. A few years back my wife did something like this with someone in EY who said some of us had A”H which she removed. not sure what happened after that…………
Let them go. They will feel good about themselves. more important then the few hours of learning, they will feel that their parents love them and care and want them to be happy.
If this would happen weekly it it is a whole different ballgammeMay 12, 2011 5:26 pm at 5:26 pm in reply to: Firestorm After �Der Zeitung� Deletes Hillary Clinton from Iconic Photo #1052717
@health – we are discussing normal rational people not the radicals. Raidcals on either end will never be satisfied with anything except there own way.
@oomis – you could not have summed it up better. As an aside, if Hillary can come to boro park/monroe/williamsburg to meet with various rebbes then she can most definantaly be published in printMay 11, 2011 6:58 pm at 6:58 pm in reply to: Firestorm After �Der Zeitung� Deletes Hillary Clinton from Iconic Photo #1052702
The basis is very clear. Doing something in a public forum with without explaining what is wrong will lead anyone to think that way. What would you tell the the guy walking along the edge of a bridge? I think it is safe to assume he is about to jump. If there was a sign that said construction ahead you would not think twice about it.
If they would have noted that 2 women were removed from the picture then all would be well. By them not acknowledgeing that they were in the room they are showing the world how narrow minded they are and how all that concerns them is is their own agenda.
Simply put, If one thinks in advance of their actions they will have less problemsMay 11, 2011 5:57 pm at 5:57 pm in reply to: Firestorm After �Der Zeitung� Deletes Hillary Clinton from Iconic Photo #1052698
@BSD – tznius is not limited but you cant take your agenda out public and expect no public response. Kosher media has to come with adhering to all rules/laws regarding media. Altering of photos or changing facts cannot be done without a disclaimer in advance not a meek aplogy later.
@health – true – but again – the target market would be yiddish speaking folks. if it is being sold at a newsstand it is PUBLIC therby allowing anyone to view and comment.
The apology that came after reminds me of when a judge tells a jury “strike this form the record” It is nice but meaningless. Whatever thoughts or points that needs to be removed are already ingrained in the mind of the jurorMay 10, 2011 6:07 pm at 6:07 pm in reply to: Firestorm After �Der Zeitung� Deletes Hillary Clinton from Iconic Photo #1052672
how are they any different than 99 percent of the lying media we have out there whether it be print or thru the airwaves.
media may give the interpertation of the facts the way they want to slant it. There was no question that Hillary Clinton was in the roomMay 10, 2011 6:04 pm at 6:04 pm in reply to: Firestorm After �Der Zeitung� Deletes Hillary Clinton from Iconic Photo #1052671
Your argument would be correct if there were other readers. Like for example the NY times, some people have a subscription and some buy it occasionally. Here even the ones who buy it occasionally know what they do with all women. There is no logical reason for them to put any disclaimer on any photos.
A disclaimer is only needed if someone could be misled.
Anyone on this frum YWN blog ever bought this newspaper? I highly doubt it.
How can you say that a newspaper being sold at newstands does nto have other readers. It is being sold to anyone who wants it. Does the newsman only sell it to chasidim??
I highly doubt that any of the loyal readers ran to the press over this story
As for your comment about YWN blog – the world is alot bigger then YWN blog (sorry YWN)May 10, 2011 4:48 pm at 4:48 pm in reply to: Firestorm After �Der Zeitung� Deletes Hillary Clinton from Iconic Photo #1052651
@thewolf – the colbert report did a very funny spoof on this last night regarding your exact point. it would be on his websiteMay 10, 2011 4:37 pm at 4:37 pm in reply to: Firestorm After �Der Zeitung� Deletes Hillary Clinton from Iconic Photo #1052649
Health – when a paper is published and sold at newstands it is for the public. It does target a reading group but anyone can look at it and draw any conclusion thet want. The readers may know that any women have been reomved but that would hardly be the point.
Being that the paper is a public paper avaiable to anyone the disclaimer is needed to justify what to someone may be ignorance/stupidity/uncaring/altering facts the list goes on and on.
It would depend on if he had any formal education and how open he would be to working in a non jewish environemnt. The more open he would be the more opurunity he can find. Perhaps a placement coach can help figure out the best market for him. He may want to consider a college degree at night. I would also suggest a non online program so that he can interact with other people.
Good Luck!!!!!!!!!May 9, 2011 9:52 pm at 9:52 pm in reply to: Firestorm After �Der Zeitung� Deletes Hillary Clinton from Iconic Photo #1052604
If a newspaper is not aware of copywright laws etc.. they should not be in business.May 9, 2011 9:44 pm at 9:44 pm in reply to: Firestorm After �Der Zeitung� Deletes Hillary Clinton from Iconic Photo #1052602
Papers CANNOT do as they wish. They are subject to copywright laws as well using the common sense that some people are infused with. They may be privatly held but their content is not private at all.
They would have been better off publishing no picture at all.
@BSD the beautiful way of life that you speak of is very nice but that can be done in a shul publication, not in a public forum. The editors need to use their heads. its a big world out there and if you are not signing up to join it then dont be part of it. Dont take the pieces that fit the your viewpoints and throw all else away. They could have noted that teh photo was altered……
I think it is cyclical. Most of the guys in yeshiva kollel that are in the mid 20′ and upwards were mostly raised in homes where parents worked (as was the custom) in the 1970’s through recently. Lots of them grew up with modern comforts and therefore when the time came to get married wanted it continued (nice car, support gifts etc..) This group will not be able to give the same to the chidlren that they are raising. Those kids will end up going to work to break out of the lifestyle of living on the basics. Their kids will go back to yeshiva. This is not blanket rule but rather the “norm” Lots of kids growing up want to be different from the way they grew up.
its a never ending cycle……….
enjoy the ride
adorable – not sure if you are CIA – but computers can be tracked by IP address
if you want to be truly unknown then go to a public library. even an internet cafe will be tracked as you have to buy time
Not sure what plot your working on but it sounds like fun
I still have not seen one solid shred of evidence that he is dead. I think it is a sham
Its a political move and photo op. POTUS has not been @ ground zero since elected to office. if he trully cared he would have stopped by on Tuesday rather then wait for all politicians and the like to be ready for him.
G Bush was smart for declinign teh offer to join him and make it a bigger circus and photo op
This is going to be his reelection push off
Based on the content of what she is asking for, why not?
If she would ask for other things then I would say no.
I have a family member who feels that way about the internet and is always asking to check and research things for him. I told him that if it is indeed assur, I dont want to get a bigger aveirah for using it on his behalf.
meds is the way to go as a temp solution. Long term your anxiety should be worked out through therapy
i go off on my own and internalize what caused it. Try to change the reaction for next time. But I find it most relaxing to be on my own for some time
if she kills her sister presumably then man she fell in love with will return.
then I dont like the real you :-).
What you said is correct though in reality and you bring a valid point to the table as well as to the OP
well said zeeskite!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
As I man, I can tell you that you are 100% right
A – thank him. He is doing you a favor
I am not sure why a women would think she deserves to have the door held open for her. it may be proper but it has to be earned.May 3, 2011 9:24 pm at 9:24 pm in reply to: Getting Married & Trying To Decide To Have TV Or Not #764319
@moderator80 – Is that how one becomes a mod? I guess I am not qulaified then. I have never been to vegas or other such places 🙂
I cant c anyones profile. I dont know how to see mine
You need to move on. Do you take all your dreams so seriously. better yet, call it a nightmare
I go to my in laws on rare occasions for this reason. It took may years and MIL has stopped inviting her friends over on shabbos and YT when we do come. it was a group effort of the married kids to explain so she can understand that we have no interest in spending shabbos/YT with her friends.
I usually let her do what she wants and if I disapporve I tell my kids that they cant and tell my MIL things like “please dont give the kids lollies or other sugar filled junk @ 9.00pm” She used to give me a blank look but she come a long way and understands that she has to respect our way of rasing kids.
Show her that you are in charge of your family. it may work
If you dont want it repeated keep it to yourself. It has always worked for me. You can always post it in CR if no-one knows you. I have also found that sometimes you can trust certain family members over others. Steer clear of the gossipers amongst the families
I would say hello. whats wrong with being nice. of course How would anyone know they were standing next to anyone from CR
had I woken up on time – I would have been driving by when it happened. I left my house 15 minutes later then usual.
I have been waking up late since then just in case
WHats wrong with suggesting it? If they can date, they can get married. Why would it be different then someone else suggesting it. Does the work handpicked come to mind?
It would be worse if it didn’t work out. How can you see someone daily that you dated especially if it was remotely serious??
resume is a perosnal thing. There are orgainzations such as PCS that might be able to help you. You have to like and be comfortable with what you see on your resume. Perhaps you should go on campus. if you spent a few years there and it is that important – why not?????
Perhaps a friend who is working can help you. I have reviewed many resumes for various friends over the yearsMay 2, 2011 7:12 pm at 7:12 pm in reply to: What noticeable differences have you felt while living in diff neighborhoods? #763311
I started in BP and now live in Flatbush. Flatbush is nicer and people more respectful of personal space. did I mentioni it is much quieter also.
a and c would be a deal breaker – if she did not offer me gum I would be upset
I would go with the introvert and should have the middah of being genuine and sincere.
Eclipse – I am confident you realize there are so many more dynamics to this question (dont eb insulted) – however from my experience I have found this would be my choice knowing what I know today….
I have started my career in accounting and have since moved on to private and can tell you that you should with fair certanty shave ( I am not a rov but am familiar with the firm) it is not a heimeshe business and thus you do need to look your finest. With regards to the yarmulkah, most industries in NY have no issues with yarmulkahs. Some lawyers do not wear them but otherwise most people in mmost industries do.
With regards to an english name, I use an english name as it is might simpler to introduce to people regardless of whether there is a “CH” in the name. I do not shave now but if I have meetings then I will shave depending on who I am meeting with including people that i work with. You need to find a level that you are comfortable with and try to stick to it.
So many and not sure where to start………
@ Health – Thanks for clarifying.
Not all are fakers – it just seems like alot for such a small town
I would actually love to live in the midwest and spend my days storm chasing
@Patur – 1.It is my money therefore my decision. 2. Let us not be naive to say that one cannot tell the difference between a benchwarmer and someone who is a real osek btorah. It is clear as day who a real learner is and one who is “doing time”.
I dont know how the problem starts but it continues when a boy will not want to even date a girl without getting a support committment for at least 5 years before going out one time.
Can I assume you are learning in yeshiva and are of marrigable age?
everyones skin reacts differently to the sun. Some people can tan well while others burn and other get blotches
Patur – not at all. I happen to have a number of siblings living in Lakewood and one of them is the real deal. I have been been giving him a check almost every month for a while now. I am getting a piece of his learning and I am helping stay in yeshiva. I do not give my other siblings because I dont think that they are real learners. Let me be clear – I have no issue with learning and am all for it and am all for people going to kollel. I do not believe that all the guys sitting in Yeshiva are meant to be sitting and learning. they are causing unneccessary strain on the parent and inlaws that struggle to provide. we are a nation of cookie cutters and conformists. Not everyone should be learning and be supported.
The kesuba also speaks of husbands supporting families and providing not parents in laws/wives slaving all day?
it would depend on relative – sibling/inlaws cousin etc.. The closer the relation theeasier and appropriate it would be to move it on your own or ask to have it moved.
I know if I would be host of where you stayed I would not be offeneded in anyway if you would have asked to move or let me know that you moved it out. I once moved something from a bathroom of mine because I had a guest that I knew was sensitive viewing such material. i told my wife to put it away until after they left.
