    “End the opiate” a book by R. Antelman who believed the Frankists influenced the bundists, jacobins, and Freemasons to create communism and fascism to wipe all of frum Judaism off the earth in order to hasten the coming of Moshiach.

    It’s a fun read, and I guess he was on the beis din to put Henry Kissinger in cherem.

    Literally this thread summed up in one statement
    “I’m triggered Jews are lighting menorahs in public.”

    If you are offended by public displays of yiddishkiet I suspect deeper issues are at play than Menorahs being lit in public. Honestly all the best, but I’m really concerned why you are acting so triggered.

    Thus it has been long recognized in the USA that the erection of a public Chanukah menorah is a positive thing because of its universal message of freedom of the human spirit, freedom from tyranny and oppression, and of the ultimate victory of good over evil, just as “a little light dispels a lot of darkness.” These fundamental human aspirations and principles, as visibly symbolized by [the] kindling of the Chanukah lights, are surely shared by the vast majority of Americans.

    White commits crime: It’s calculated and methodical possibly ideologically driven.

    Minority commits crime: It’s mental illness due to years of systematic oppression.

    So liberals think minorities can’t exhibit self control, and minorities are perpetually victims.

    Who are the real racists? There is nothing more demeaning than feeling sorry for someone, liberals pride themselves on thinking people “below” them are pathetic and need their benevolent helping hand.

    This case is a victory for all of us who don’t like our property and businesses destroyed by Bolshevik mobs.

    You can’t count on the police to protect you, arm yourselves educate yourselves don’t let the msm convince you otherwise they don’t have your best interests at heart.

    Rittenhouse was cleared of all charges by a jury of his peers, we should be thankful this country still holds by having a court of law. Anyone opposing the ruling of this case is either ignorant, or a facilitator to the Bolshevik mobs plain and simple.

    It didn’t have have Covid previously, even though I should have. I was working in close proximity to positive patients in SICU settings on a daily basis.

    I received my second dose of the vaccine 6 months ago.

    Somehow the kids contracted the new variant a couple weeks ago. Honestly now that we all have natural immunity thanks to our G-d given immune systems I have no desire to vaccinate against Covid further.

    I’m curious about this specific course of action, if you have already caught Covid is there any benefit to vaccinate afterwards? If this is an ignorant stance please explain why, I’m not trying to create a flame war, I’m honestly want to know.

    R. Soloveichik z”tl himself signed a letter with the intention of condemning yidden from claiming those who believed the Rebbe was Moshiach as heretics.

    Obviously if a chabadnik claimed the Rebbe was HaShem in a guf that is a major problem, to think he was Moshiach is a non issue.

    I’ve noticed that MO folks are the most salty about how successful the Rebbe was. I think it’s grounded in the fact that MO is becoming no longer relevant.

    Litvish folks kvetching about ChaBaD are usually bored and should be spending time studying, or ignorant about Chassidus and again should be studying.

    UV lighting is a very simple job, install the bulb array in the air handler ideally before and after the evaporator. The older models stayed on 24/7 but now they have designs configured to switch on if air flow is detected or if current is detected on by the motor. An added benefit of the UV system is mold, algae and bacteria won’t propagate on the damp evaporator during summer months. Make sure the bulb frequency rating is high enough to be effective for destroying virus, I will have to recall that factor.

    The reverse polarity ionization technologies being pushed right now for air purification to my knowledge have not had very many compelling results. I would stay away from that cost fir now. If you are in a smaller space a portable HEPA cart with MERV 17 filters and UV lights will purify the air a few times per hour, they are expensive but very effective and are employed in hospitals with great results. If you can research ASHREA standards for hospital spaces and employ the same air change strategies in the space of concern.

    ASHREA to my knowledge has not come up with any “hard” recommendations just CDC guided suggestions. One thing for sure is commercial HVAC considerations will forever be changed by this virus. I expect to see a lot more air changes and more outside air being brought in, MAU units and VRV systems will be the norm.

    Hospitals have air handler designed to use UV on the cold deck, or evaporator side so the air passing through is purified and sent through typically 2-3 layers of progressively finer mesh HEPA filters.

    My house has a UV system, and it is becoming common. Also UV only works if the air handling fan is on. Any time a space is occupied the fan must be online for filtration to occur.

    in reply to: Please explain Ivermectin #2015799

    Participant

    Always ask questions:

    MERV 15 is such a fine mesh rate it will cause a normal residential HVAC system to run very inefficiently due to the constricted airflow over the evaporator and possibly over amp the fan motor in the air handler. I wouldn’t recommend anything higher than a MERV 11 for that reason. You are 100% right about metering outside air in based on CO2 counts, that’s how a lot of modern HVAC equipment is design for controlling outside air economizers. A lot of older commercial airbags sling equipment is also not designed to accommodate any any outside air changes.

    Don’t forget UV lighting in the air handling unit. That is a lot more effective than even HEPA rated MERV 17 filters used in hospitals. UV lighting, maximum air changes per hour and maximum outside air intake is what the CDC in conjunction with ASHREA is recommending fir controlling infectious aerosols.
