    Yokohama government trash-helper app gives poignant philosophical advice to depressed citizens Scott Wilson Sometimes help can come from where you least expect it… like, REALLY least expect it. Throwing away trash in Japan can be a complicated nightmare. Paper, plastic, glass, burnable… all of them and more have their own days to be put out, and if you miss collection day, then you have to keep the ever-growing pile inside of your house until the next pick-up day for that category, which can be up to a month for more obscure types. To help any confused citizens, the Yokohama City...

    Subject: Re: Never lie to a Rabbi At Friday night services, Morris went to his friend Irving and said, "Irving, I need a favor - I'm sleeping with the rabbi's wife. Can you hold him in temple for an hour after services for me?" Irving not very fond of the idea, but being Morris' lifelong friend, he reluctantly agreed. After services, he struck up a conversation with the rabbi asking him all sorts of stupid questions in an effort to keep him occupied. After some time, the wise rabbi became suspicious and asked, "Irving what are you really up to...

    Jewish Journal ^ | Jul 19, 2017 | Dennis Prager
    Why is there no Good Son in the Passover haggadah? As most Jews know, there are Four Sons in the Passover liturgy: the Wise Son, the Bad Son, the Son Who Doesnt Know How to Ask, and the Simple Son. But there is no Good Son. Why not? There would appear to be one likely answer: The rabbis considered the opposite of bad to be wise. And they were brilliant in doing so. Why? Because without wisdom, goodness is impossible. This may be the great unappreciated lesson of our time. Beginning with the baby boomers, Americas most arrogant and foolish...

  • He Shall Be Like a TREE...Psalm 1 and 2 pt 3

    Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.(Psalm 1:1-3)In the first Psalm, God reveals the marks of the truly blessed man. His blessedness comes not from outward...

    The ungodly are not so, But are like the chaff which the wind drives away. Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, Nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. For the LORD knows the way of the righteous, But the way of the ungodly shall perish.(Psalm 1:4-6)Psalm One is a wisdom psalm. The Spirit shows us by contrast the difference between the truly happy man, and his antithesis, the ungodly. In the sparest of language, two ways of life are shown side by side, the essence of the truly happy and of the miserable. The ungodly are...

    Cleopatra VII is not only a famous person in history, she is also the icon of a rich and powerful culture. She was usually depicted as a lover of great men, but the truth was different. More important than her love life was her educational pursuits. Cleopatra VII could be called one of the greatest intellectuals of her times.

    That brings us to Tuesday's interview in which Schilling devoted about eight minutes (starting near the 28-minute mark) to talking about Clinton, Republican frontrunner Donald Trump and the various things that scare him for the future of America. The interview, though, was at its most provocative when Schilling railed on Clinton. "If shes allowed to get to the general election before shes in prison Ill be stunned and upset, Schilling said. Because I think shes shown her true colors all along the way and Ill ask you this: Do you see her being anything even remotely different than what weve...

    Pretenders lead singer claims sexual assault in the 1970s was her own fault because of the way she was dressed Women who walk around drunk and provocatively dressed should expect to be sexually assaulted, Chrissie Hynde, the lead singer of the Pretenders, has suggested. The former chart topper claimed in a Sunday newspaper interview that scantily clad women were likely to entice a rapist and that it is their fault if they are attacked. She discloses in a new memoir how she was abducted and sexually assaulted by a motorcycle gang in Ohio in the early 1970s but concludes...

    A gentle answer turns away wrath, But a harsh word stirs up anger. The tongue of the wise makes knowledge acceptable, But the mouth of fools spouts folly. The eyes of the LORD are in every place, Watching the evil and the good. A soothing tongue is a tree of life, But perversion in it crushes the spirit. A fool rejects his father’s discipline, But he who regards reproof is sensible. Great wealth is in the house of the righteous, But trouble is in the income of the wicked. The lips of the wise spread knowledge, But the hearts...

    Consider a Prophetic Interpretation of Reality from the Book of Wisdom By: Msgr. Charles PopeIn today’s Office of Readings there is a text from the Book of Wisdom that prophetically interprets the times in which we are living. In the 30 years I have been reading this text in the Breviary, I found that the pieces of this prophecy are continually falling into place. In my earlier years I would have found the threats or persecution to be too overtated for our times. That is changing now and slowly we are seeing each element become more clear.In the text that...

    Some bits of wisdom! And a note to my friends and compatriots: I often hear people say that although they had lived their lives, and were fairly satisfied, they wouldn't want to live it over again. I disagree. I would like to do it all over again, but with more wisdom and a better sense of purpose. I wouldn't change very much, but I would not waste so much precious time, and I would do everything a lot better. And now an admonition: Always remember; when the issue is great, when the future of society depends on you, when it...
  • The Death Of The Simple pt 1...Proverbs 7

    A Bible question, What do the book of Proverbs and the book of Revelation have in common? Both have a running theme concerning two women. In Revelation the Bride of Christ is set over against the Harlot, and the culmination of History is the Marriage supper of the Lamb. Proverbs is similar, for we are introduced to two women, and called upon to choose between them. Lady Wisdom, cries out in the streets, beckoning those who know they lack wisdom to come unto her well set table. But Dame Folly has an outreach to the simple also,her message is ,...
