Re: The Mind Illuminated - best meditation book

Great book. I've read about and tried meditation many times over the last 40 years. This is the first time I've gotten it. He takes you carefully step by step in clear prose with insightful analogies to where you actually start meditating and then get better at it with the notion that it is a consta...

tennis elbow

I had developed stubborn, painful tennis elbow. I tired physical therapy with electrophoresis, with no relief. I then had an ultrasound-guided steroid injection into the joint with no relief. Finally went to a hand specialist. He inserted a needle filled with mostly lidocaine right on the bone hinge...

Re: Securing the synagogue

FBI, local LE, and security experts have a lot of good advice, and we're actively engaged with them, but a lot comes down to budget, finding the right balance, and reality check, made harder by the presence of elderly and regular classes for special needs kids and our being a small community (a few ...

Re: Securing the synagogue

My first thought is leave it to the pro's. Would you have to hire "full-time" security? Or could you just have them to coincide with the regular services and other functions? Also, what is Ohio law regarding self defense? By which I mean, in some places even where carrying is allowed, the laws are ...

Securing the synagogue

Following the Pittsburgh shooting, I dug into security issues for the synagogue I teach Sunday School at and the other one I attend. Then, last week, the FBI arrested a guy who planned to shoot up the synagogue I teach at. Part of this is that the chance of a shooting is remote - statistically the h...

Re: A Philosophical Question

The problem with answers is that there are often two of them and they're opposite -- "opportunity knocks only once," so jump on it; "look before you leap," take a breath an be careful before jumping.

Re: Fauda

As near as i can piece it together, sounds like what happened in Gaza last week is that Israel sent in 4 counter-intel guys, 2 dressed as women, in a car.

gun control

Gun control has a lot to do with culture and in America with the second amendment. By way of contrast, Israel has very severe gun control laws. You have to be in the right occupation, have the right military rank, or live in certain areas. Permit holders are limited to owning one pistol. Those who h...

Re: Surprisingly Important Books

I've read a few "important" books but, the most surprisingly important book to me has been Dickens', "A Christmas Carol". There's way more to this little book than a ghost story. Just about everything that's truly important is in there. Dickens is my favorite author. Pickwick Papers is the funniest...

Surviving Vegas-type situation

What's the best thing to do if you're in that situation - you hear gun shots, they're scattered, people falling everywhere, you have no idea where shots are coming from, you're wide open. What do you do to maximize odds of living - run, crawl, curl up in a ball and stay put?

Philosphy as a way of life

Over the years, there have been IGXers fond of stoicism. Philosphy as a way of life by Pierre Hadot is about how to do stoicism and epicureanism. His notion is that Greek philosophy was not about a set of doctrines - stoicism, Platonist forms, etc. - but it was about how to live life well. Thus Marc...
