Practically if the will isn’t there
Therein is a problem. Muster up the will. It may be hard, but it is achievable.
Yes, I read it. And you have not addressed the most basic and simple fact:
Why do men have a significantly higher IQ than women?
This is true across the board. And the differences become even greater as you start dealing with smarter people.
Why are there twice as many men with an IQ of 125 as there are women? Why are there 5.5 times as many men with an IQ of 155 as there are women? Why at the near-genius level brilliant men outnumber brilliant women by 8 to one? Why at or above the 99.9th percentile there are about 15 times more males?
Disregard, if you wish, any research, studies, hypothesis and/or conclusions I earlier presented. Please, as simple or complex as you desire, explain your explanations or hypothesis for this disparity between men and women.
Truthfully, I expect you to further obfuscate rather than address the issue as you evidently have no credible counterargument.
And to what do you attribute the statistical fact that from the time IQ’s have been measured from over 100 years ago until this very day, that men have consistently and continuously achieve a significantly higher score than women?
Is the fact that the Jewish People, as a whole, are on average significantly more intelligent than gentiles similarly irrelevant?
I didn’t think so.
Nowhere had mdd suggested advising the parents a reason. He simply explained to *us* the reason, as explained in Rashi.
Ever since the Frenchman Alfred Binet devised the first intelligence test in 1905, study after study has confirmed the same result. Boys and girls may start out with the same IQ but by 16 or so boys are starting to inch ahead. When it comes to IQ, men and women simply are not equal.
A study of 100,000 17- to 18-year-olds on the Scholastic Assessment Test published in the September 2006 issue of the journal Intelligence, has confirmed the finding — that men have a 5-point IQ advantage over women by adulthood. The study analyzed 145 items from the Scholastic Assessment Test in 100,000 17- to 18-year-olds. At each and every level of family income, for every level of fathers’ and of mothers’ education, and for each and every one of seven ethnic groups, males had higher G scores than females, the study found. The male-female differences were present at every socioeconomic level, and across several ethnic groups.
The paper’s results dovetail with those from several other recently published studies showing that men have a 5-point IQ point advantage over women by late adolescence and early adulthood. Before that age the two sexes are equal in general intelligence. By the time both genders reach 21, men, on average, score five IQ points higher than women. At the near-genius level (an IQ of 145), brilliant men outnumber brilliant women by 8 to one.
In almost 110 years of Nobel Prize history, only two women have ever won the Prize for physics, only four have won the Prize for chemistry and no women at all have ever won the coveted Fields Medal for mathematics in eight decades of trying.
Neither of them are Neo-Nazis or holocaust deniers or anything remotely similar. I have no idea whatever gave you that idea.
In fact Prof. Lynn authored “The Chosen People: A Study of Jewish Intelligence and Achievement” which documents superior Jewish intelligence.
Why should a Shabbos meal be less b’kovodik than a chasuna meal? People leave it on for kavod Shabbos.
It’s rude to take your hat off among Yidden. Do you see people taking their hat off at a chasana, after the chupa, when they sit down to eat their meal? People leave it on.
I took their report since I happened to find it first. But the results are more widely documented. It doesn’t stand on those two professors.
In a study accepted for publication by the British Journal of Psychology, Dr. Paul Irwing (Manchester Business School, Senior Lecturer in Organizational Psychology) and Prof. Richard Lynn (University of Ulster, Professor Emeritus) conclude that men are on average five points ahead on IQ tests. The study also found that men outnumbered women in increasing numbers as intelligence levels rise. There were twice as many with IQ scores of 125, a level typical for people with first-class degrees. When scores rose to 155, a level associated with genius, there were 5.5 men for every woman.
The male variance in IQ is greater than that for females; Arthur Jensen says this difference is greatest in math and spatial ability. In math the male variance is 1.1 to 1.3 times greater (he does not give the difference for total IQ or g). In the high range, at or above the 98th percentile there are about twice more males than females, while at or above the 99.9th percentile there are about 15 times more males.
The Shomer Emunim ztvk’l explained the meaning of the story.
It has to do with tznius.
How does today’s deal compare to the last two deals you posted above?
You don’t have to say anything when visiting the parents for shiva. Just sit with them. (And if they start talking to you, simply follow wherever they lead the conversation.) The main thing is to sit with them.

I understood ICOT to mean that he thinks public opinion would be the determining factor. I disputed that. If I misunderstood ICOT, then I apologize.

Good morning. The Israeli State has been built on kefira from Day 1.
That’s not correct, it will be decided by law not opinion.

uneeq: Where do you come to actually argue on the Debreciner!?!
Based on the just released UJA 2012 Jewish population study, the forward reports that “Among the Orthodox, ultra-Orthodox Hasidic Jews are the largest group, at 16% of the Jewish population of the eight counties counted in the survey. They outnumber both Modern Orthodox Jews, at 10% of the total Jewish population, and non-Hasidic ultra-Orthodox Jews, at 6% of the population.”
That means that within Orthodoxy the Chareidim make up 69% of the population (the Chasidim alone are 50% of the overall Orthodox and the Litvish/non-Chasidish are 19% of the overall Orthodox) while the Modern Orthodox represent 31% of the Orthodox. So the OP was pretty much on the button.
Also, according to the UJA 2012 report, half of the non-Orthodox marriages between 2006 and 2011 was to a non-Jew.
And while Jews make up a slightly smaller proportion of the population in New York than they did a decade ago, they are way up in Brooklyn. Now, 22% of Brooklynites are Jewish, compared to 18% a decade ago. So while Brooklyn is becoming more Jewish, the other four boroughs of NYC are becoming less Jewish.
Moving anywhere doesn’t help. The U.S. Military has video cameras on satellites in the sky that can record anyone anywhere in the world, even showing small details like individual faces.
If you’ll be upstate for the summer, there is a barn near Monticello where they manufacture them on-site from locally breeded ponies.
He never published it. He gave a copy to a few confident’s that he trusted wouldn’t distribute it.
And he discontinued sale of the original books upon instructions of the gedolim (he said so himself), not public opinion.
Sam: So if the government (and some private enterprises) are able to monitor a live satellite feed, on a screen, of anywhere in the world, how can anyone ever go outside on Shabbos (as HaLeiVi asked earlier) anywhere?
Sam: There is no point in arguing about it. Even the author agreed to withdraw it and he opposes it being distributed, per the Gedolim’s instructions. If he listens to the Gedolim when it directly affects his own writings, surely perspective readers should honor the instructions of both the Gedolim and the author in this matter.
(Btw, the second book “The Making of a Ban” he never published.)
hello99: What did you post?
Does it make a difference if in addition to saving the movie to a hard drive there is also a live monitor displaying the movements?
And is there any difference between a conventional security video camera and a video camera on a satellite in orbit recording live movements on Earth?
The gedolim shlit”a advised the author to withdraw the book from the market. He listened to the gedolim and withdrew it. I’m not sure why anyone would want to read something the gedolim don’t allow; but in any event it is unavailable.
Adults should get their piece of herring before children get their piece.
There are very many cream of the crop bochorim. But where are the good girls??
Yekke: There are cameras rolling in the streets all over London. (For years already.) That city is abuzz with cameras.
If there are insufficient seats for everyone, the children should allow the adults to sit instead of them taking seats.
I’m still not understanding. They only “advise” to go to BD first; but if going to BD “isn’t feasible” they’ll start protesting against the spouse without a BD first ruling a divorce is required under halacha?
They represent anyone stuck in a marriage they don’t want
What on earth does that mean? Just because someone “doesn’t want” a marriage, does not entitle them to leave it. That is why Rabbeinu Gershom made a cherem to prevent men from divorcing their wife without consent. (Women were always prohibited from simply leaving a marriage because they didn’t “want” it anymore; they need a good halachic justification for a beis din to mandate a divorce.)
Okay, hopefully this’ll pass muster. My own summary; no quoting from the article.
It says there are 1.1 million Jews in New York City (which has the largest Jewish population in the world outside Israel and the city represents a third of all American Jewry), and of those 493,000 are Orthodox and another 220,000 are Russian Jews.
In 2012, 40% of all Jews in NYC are Orthodox (up from 33% in 2002), but 74 percent of all Jewish children in the city are Orthodox.
It also notes that while the Orthodox community is growing and becoming more religious (and isolated), the non-Orthodox are shrinking, becoming less religious and more and more don’t even identify themselves with any stream of Judaism.
(Mods: I shortened it this time.) From tomorrow’s NY Times:
I deleted it because it is most probably a copyright violation.
Mod, as long as it isn’t the full article (i.e. less than 50%), it isn’t a copyright violation. It falls under “fair use”. Websites post partial articles from mainstream news sites all the time, including the main page of YWN.
Can I repost?
I’m not a lawyer. no.
Reading tidbits, it seems Rav Chaim is saying it is only permissible to use the internet with a filter. Without a filter it is assur to use the internet. Rav Wosner seems to be going a little further and saying it is assur to use the internet for personal use at all (i.e. having internet at home), even with a filter. But for business use, it is permissible with a filter. Both say that to use the internet at all, even with a filter, one must first ask their Rov a shaila about their personal need for the internet, and obtain a heter, if permissible, for them to use the internet (with a filter).

According to a University of Manchester study, not only will the Ultra-Orthodox be a majority of Orthodoxy but will be a majority of all Jewry:
‘Majority of Jews will be Ultra-Orthodox by 2050’
23 Jul 2007
Ultra-orthodox British and American Jews are set to outnumber their more secular counterparts by the second half of this century according to research by a University of Manchester academic. Historian Dr Yaakov Wise says the increase in religious British Jewry – recognisable by their traditional dress – is now outstripping the decline in the overall Jewish population which has been shrinking by one to two per cent each year since the 1950s. European ultra-orthodox Jewry is expanding more rapidly than at any time since before World War Two. Almost three out of every four British Jewish births, he says are ultra- orthodox who now account for 45,500 out of a total UK Jewish population of around 275,000 or 17 per cent. According to Dr Wise and the Hebrew University of Jerusalem’s Professor Sergio Della Pergola, Israel is experiencing similar changes. Dr Wise said: “If current trends continue there is going to be a profound cultural and political change among British and American Jews – and it’s already well on the way. “This is in spite of demographic studies which show that the non-Ultra Orthodox Jewish population is flat or falling. “And you can see evidence for this in communities across the UK: in Greater Manchester for example the Ultra-orthodox number 8,500 which is almost a third of the 28,000 Jews in the region. “This is up from around one quarter only ten years ago. “Approximately half of all the Jewish under fives in Greater Manchester are Ultra-orthodox. “And in Greater London the Ultra-orthodox now account for 18 per cent of the Jewish population, up from less than 10 per cent in the early 1990s.” He added: “My work and that of Professor Sergio Della Pergola reveal a similar picture in Israel. “By the year 2020, the Ultra-orthodox population of Israel will double to one million and make up 17 per cent of the total population. “A recent Israeli Central Bureau of Statistics report also found that a third of all Jewish pupils will be studying at haredi schools by 2012, prompting emergency meetings at the Education Ministry. “In America too, where the Jewish population is stable or declining, Ultra-Orthodox Jewish numbers are growing rapidly. “Professor Joshua Comenetz from The University of Florida says the Ultra-orthodox population doubles every 20 years, which he says may make the Jewish community not only more religiously observant but more politically conservative. “Comenetz estimated the Ultra-orthodox population in 2000 was about 360,000, 7.2 per cent of the approximately 5 million Jews in the U.S. “But in 2006, demographers now estimate the number had grown to 468,000 or 9.4 per cent.” NOTES FOR EDITORS The UK figures were based on census data plus the regular monitoring of Jewish births by academics in Manchester and Leeds.
Can you please clarify your point? How was Rav Wosner shlita and Rav Chaim shlita’s psak different?
How can Google differentiate between two people with the same name?
Stop looking for excuses.
The story in the OP is a bubbe maisa.
Story isn’t accurate or correct.
