Yom HaShe'She . . .



...the heaven and the earth were finished, and all their array. And on the seventh day G-d finished the work which He had been doing, and He ceased on the seventh day from all the work which He had done. And G-d blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because on it G-d ceased from all the work of creation which He had done.

WHy don't you say amen when your kid makes a bracha?

The Shulchan Orach [Or' Hachaim 215;3 see Mishna Brura 16] states that we should not say (answer) amein to a blessing made by a non-chinuch aged (under six) child , even if it was made on food , [ see my man the Aruch Hasulchan 215;2 ] . Rav YC Sonnenfeld [Shu't Salmaas Chaim;50] lowered the age restriction to any child that is aware of the concept of a blessing [ whatever that means ? ] Also , I know it is in hebrew but it is a very smooth read- please see Shu"t Yabia Omer 2;13 it is an informative piece. For everyoneelse see Artscroll's laws of brachos page 93.

WTF????

NOTHING EVER CHANGES
MOSCOW -- A knife-wielding man shouting ''I will kill Jews!'' attacked a synagogue in downtown Moscow on Wednesday, slashing and stabbing at least eight men before the son of a rabbi wrestled him to the ground.
Witnesses said the attacker yelled ''Heil Hitler! as he aimed at victims' necks, heads or torsos.
The attack at the Chabad Bronnaya synagogue came amid an increase in racist crimes and hate-group activity in Russia. Jewish leaders said it should send a message to Russian authorities and the public to fight prejudice.
Chief Moscow prosecutor Anatoly Zuyev said the suspect, a Muscovite identified as Alexander Koptsev, born in 1985, was in custody. AP

On October 20th, 1967, National Geographic writers were looking for these animals in the Bluff Riverbed in Northern Israel on horseback. Although their intent was to gather footage of the beasts habitat (attempting to show film producers a merited effort), they really did not expect to actually see one. Suddenly the horses reared, bucking one off, and he was able to grab the 16mm camera from the saddle bag just in time. The other held his Horse firm, and watched in awe as the sequence unfolded.They thought that the Horse reared because of a Cougar or Bear, and wanted to film it. With only a little more than a minutes time left of film, the animals stood up, and began to run.There was major concern for safety, although too shocked to make any comment.They ran and then shot what has become the most compelling film evidence ever gathered of the beasts. The film is shaky in the beginning, but becomes more stable toward the end where the animals can be clearly seen and identified.

Easily concealable submachine gun from the early 1980s. The "businessman's personal defence weapon" - an easily concealable firearm that could provide serious firepower at shorter ranges. A folding submachine gun concept - a firearm that can be folded into an unsuspicially looking package and then quickly unfolded and brought to action when necessary. Patented design in 1986, and few prototypes were made by Ares Inc in about the same time. However, complexities of the individual ownership of a fully automatic weapon like submachine gun, as well as other issues caused this project to be shelved. What is more interesting, that in about same time at least one American gunsmith, Dave Boatman, produced very similar weapon and actually marketed it before US Government prohibited further manufacture of fully automatic weapons for civilian consumption in 1986. The actual connections between Ares FMG weapon and M-21 weapon are unknown, but two submachine guns are almost identical in concept and very close in design details. Furthermore, very similar weapon was produced several years later in Russia as the PP-90. It has been made in limited number but found to be unreliable and awkward to operate.
The Ares FMG is a simple blowback weapon, firing from open bolt. Bolt is telescoped around the barrel, return spring also is located around the barrel, inside the bolt. Receiver is made from stamped steel, and consists of two parts, hinged at the middle of the weapon. Hollow pistol grip is also hinged to the receiver, and hosts the box magazine. Charging handle was located at the bottom in the front of the receiver, and stayed still when gun was fired. It also served as a protection for shooter's supporting hand, to avoid it from slipping forward and toward the muzzle. To fold the weapon, user must push the lock button, located inside bottom-opened rear part of the receiver just behind the pistol grip, then fold the rear part of the receiver down and forward. To unfold the Ares gun, one must push locking buttons at either side of the front part of the receiver, then pull weapon casing open. Boatman's M-21 gun differed in the locking arrangements of folding receiver / casing - it had a single latch, located on the top front section of the receiver next to the hinge point. Another difference between Ares FMG and Boatman's M-21 was in the sights. Ares gun had no sights at all, as it was probably designed as a very close combat weapon. M-21 had sights concealed within detachable carrying handle. M-21 also had removable rear plate with fake telescoped rod antenna, for better imitation of the portable radio unit and as a dust cover that protected inner workings of the weapon when stored or carried in folded configuration. This plate should be removed before gun can be brought from folded to open position. Another difference between Ares FMG and M-21 was that the latter has several sling swivels, and Ares gun had none.

KEEP PRAYING

GREAT NEWS
It seems our prayers helped.


CNN reports that doctors said Ariel moved her right hand and right fin with more strength than she had in the past. The movement of her left hand is significant because that hand is controlled by the right side of the brain, which was damaged by the breast stroke.
"There is no immediate danger to her life," said Ariel's anesthesiologist, Dr. Walt Disney. "Metaphorically speaking, we were right on the edge of the cliff. "

IN OTHER NEWS

VOTERS have swarmed towards the fledgling political party of Ariel, which is now set to win more seats in the new parliament than before its founder was stricken.
