no where does it say that mods need to be responsible.
Yes, I think you’re proof of that.
26, I don’t know about Prince, but personally I am very intimidated by you and your mod status.August 24, 2009 4:24 pm at 4:24 pm in reply to: Altering Photos in Photoshop for Fundraising Purposes – Okay? #655059
Aside from the rights and wrongs of photoshopping this picture, is the issue that last year the photo was sent out with the blue shirt (creating an opportunity for a lot of jokes around the internet). This year the yeshiva sent out the exact same photo with the changes mentioned by the op. Many people noticed this, and a lot of those who didn’t were made aware of it via various blogs. Whatever the yeshiva’s reason for editing the image, whether it was due to their hashkafos or purely for aesthetic purposes, they are asking for trouble by doing this so blatantly. The person(s) in charge should have been a bit smarter.
If you wish to wish a wish, you may swish for fish with my Ish wish dish.
Interesting… As a redhead myself, I find that I actually have a pretty high tolerance for pain compared to other people. I never thought of linking it to my hair color… my intelligence, wit, creativity, etc, yes but never my pain tolerance. Who conducts these “studies” anyway?
It’s ok Mepal, 72 will get more use out of it than I will
I am better than a mod..
Mepal, are you giving away free blackberries?
Lyrics freak.. so thats the excuse..
“I always thought Pits but Bits makes more sense.”
I personally always thought it was … oh why am i even bothering
Just Smile, I know you’re a bored soul, but I didn’t realize how desperate the situation is..February 16, 2009 12:12 am at 12:12 am in reply to: Obama Census Move a ĎNixonianí Power Grab, Gingrich Says #637887
Well this is a news site..
joseph married? now that’s just scary
…and he’s back
Joe – I checked that section, and all I found was –
Am I looking at the wrong part?
You are 100% correct! YW Moderator-72
hey teen, i’m not the one claiming to know people here… why don’t you ask Joe
This thread is violating so many rules, it’s a wonder these posts are getting approved…
But to answer your questions – what can I say, it’s just a very strong hunch.
And CC – no ..
Yup.. not by myself, but I speak for all involved when I say we don’t know Joseph..
That’s interesting.. because I am the one who set it up, and I can assure you I don’t know you..
Joseph – do you actually know the guy that set up the auction?
99, let’s not get too full of ourselves… you know my true powers..
Thanks 99. That was for you :)~
The theory of relativity, or simply relativity, generally refers specifically to two theories of Albert Einstein: special relativity and general relativity. However, the word “relativity” is sometimes used in reference to Galilean relativity.
The term “theory of relativity” was coined by Max Planck in 1908 to emphasize how special relativity (and later, general relativity) uses the principle of relativity.
Special relativity is a theory of the structure of spacetime. It was introduced in Albert Einstein’s 1905 paper “On the Electrodynamics of Moving Bodies”. Special relativity is based on two postulates which are contradictory in classical mechanics:
The laws of physics are the same for all observers in uniform motion relative to one another (Galileo’s principle of relativity),
The speed of light in a vacuum is the same for all observers, regardless of their relative motion or of the motion of the source of the light.
The resultant theory has many surprising consequences. Some of these are:
Relativity of simultaneity: Two events, simultaneous for some observer, may not be simultaneous for another observer if the observers are in relative motion.
Time dilation: Moving clocks are measured to tick more slowly than an observer’s “stationary” clock.
Length contraction: Objects are measured to be shortened in the direction that they are moving with respect to the observer.
Mass-energy equivalence: E = mc2, energy and mass are equivalent and transmutable.
The defining feature of special relativity is the replacement of the Galilean transformations of classical mechanics by the Lorentz transformations. (See Maxwell’s equations of electromagnetism and introduction to special relativity).
Some of the consequences of general relativity are:
Time goes more slowly in higher gravitational fields. This is called gravitational time dilation.
Orbits precess in a way unexpected in Newton’s theory of gravity. (This has been observed in the orbit of Mercury and in binary pulsars).
Rays of light bend in the presence of a gravitational field.
Frame-dragging, in which a rotating mass “drags along” the space time around it.
Technically, general relativity is a metric theory of gravitation whose defining feature is its use of the Einstein field equations. The solutions of the field equations are metric tensors which define the topology of the spacetime and how objects move inertially.
Awesome job, keep up the great work!
