Havlagah - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
"HaHavlagah (Hebrew: ההבלגה‎, "The Restraint") was a strategic policy used by the Haganah members with regard to actions taken against Arab groups who were attacking the Jewish settlement during the British Mandate of Palestine. Its core principles were fortification and abstention from taking revenge on Arabs by attacking innocent civilians. The political leadership and many leftwing Zionist groups supported the Havlagah policy. Many of the Zionist leadership saw Havlagah as a moral policy and a source of pride for the Jews." - Eivind from Bookmarklet

A butterfly just landed on my wrist while I was reading outside and stayed there kissing on me for almost two minutes before it flew away. So ticklish! And why did it take so long to figure out I'm not a flower? Cute though.

Yeah, butterflies sometimes ingest salt from sweat or other sources. - John (bird whisperer)
It could also have been a vampire butterfly. I'm just sayin'. - Steve C Team Marina
Interesting. I'm sure there's plenty of salt on me. It was cool bc it landed right on my wrist and didn't move when I raised my arm to look at it close up. "Are you lost?'' I said. "Nomnomnomnom'' he said. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra from Android

So the maintenance guy was in the parking lot and I mentioned I thought the AC system is still leaking. He came to have a look and it's taking a long time bc the housing won't come all the way off and we can't figure out why. I can tell he's getting frustrated and I have to be somewhere in 30 min. I told him he can use foul language if he needs...

Haile Selassie's (not the Messiah, just a very naughty boy) "principle of the second bag":
Haile_Selassie_in_full_dress.jpg
Lij_Tafari_Makonnen.jpg
"His August Majesty chided the bureaucrats for failing to understand a simple principle: the principle of the second bag. Because the people never revolt just because they have to carry a heavy load, or because of exploitation. They don’t know life without exploitation, they don’t even know that such a life exists. How can they desire what they cannot imagine? The people will revolt only when, in a single movement, someone tries to throw a second burden, a second heavy bag, onto their backs. The peasant will fall face down into the mud—and then spring up and grab an ax. He’ll grab an ax, my gracious sir, not because he simply can’t sustain this new burden—he could carry it—he will rise because he feels that, in throwing the second burden onto his back suddenly and stealthily, you have tried to cheat him, you have treated him like an unthinking animal, you have trampled what remains of his already strangled dignity, taken him for an idiot who doesn’t see, feel, or understand.

Behind Every Good Whisky Is A Trusty Distillery Cat : Parallels : NPR
"Cameron explains that whisky requires grain, which attracts mice and birds. And that is the very short distillery cat origin story. Vermin are not such a problem today. "We might get the odd one, two mice throughout the year, but that's about it," says Cameron. So why keep a distillery cat on the premises? "Because we've always had a cat at the distillery, we have," says Cameron matter-of-factly. "You know, it's not a dog. It's not a horse. It's a cat!"" - Katy S from Bookmarklet
"Cameron actually chose the latest distillery cat at Glenturret — a kitten named Peat, like the smoky flavor in whisky. He describes the rigorous vetting process. "Had a look at him. Thought, 'Yep.' Gave him a few strokes, and thought he was a friendly lookin' cat. Held him for a wee while. Decided, 'Right. He's the one.' " - Katy S

The craziest thing I did at Burning Man this year? Fell 10 feet off this dome. #saturdayff
IMG_1363.JPG
It was the Sunday of temple burn, and I was helping break down our camp. Our ladder was not quiiiiite tall enough. - Stephen Mack
So, I clambered on up the dome itself. We loosened the top central bolt successfully. And then I was working on one of the next five hubs. I was anchored and prepared for it to shift when the bolt came off. - Stephen Mack
But I wasn't prepared for the entire area I was perched on to shift as well. I kind of rolled off and there was nothing to grab onto. So I fell. - Stephen Mack
Fortunately, some old Hapkido training kicked in: I landed on my side, with a pretty good arm slap to break my fall. Everyone in camp was freaked out, but I just stood up and said I was fine. - Stephen Mack
After that, we got the tallest guy in camp to do the bolts, and our neighbors across the street (AEZ, one of the cooler camps around) loaned us a taller ladder. Both of which were things we should have done from the beginning. - Stephen Mack
The bad part is that we were TRYING to be careful, since we'd also had an accident setting up the dome: The tall guy had accidentally dropped one of the bars while stretching up to secure one of the top hubs, and it struck our camp leader on the chest, leaving a nasty gouge. It could have been REALLY bad if it had hit her elsewhere. - Stephen Mack
One of the frequent Burning Man refrains is "safety third" but we internalized that a bit too much this year, I think. - Stephen Mack
We set up a white board with a "0 DAYS SINCE LAST ACCIDENT" and later had to switch DAYS to HOURS because of our many frequent (but fortunately minor) mishaps this year. - Stephen Mack
Note to self: Bring a taller ladder next year. - Stephen Mack
My neck was a bit sore on Wednesday, but otherwise no ill effects. - Stephen Mack
All in all, a great year. Fabulous art, thunder and lightning, great crew, amazing burns, new experiences (including working a greeter shift and running a 5k). I have zero complaints and miss the playa deeply. - Stephen Mack

Since Nazi Occupation, a Fist Raised in Resistance http://www.nytimes.com/2014...
06GREECE-1-master675.jpg
"ATHENS — AS protests swirled in Athens during the Greek financial crisis, a silver-haired octogenarian could be seen on the front lines, raising a fist at the riot police as they shot tear gas into his face. Other times, even on the same day, the same man might be standing in front of Parliament, insisting that lawmakers repudiate an austerity package demanded by the country’s creditors, which he said would only throw Greece into greater hardship." - Maitani
"Today, he is an iconic figure in Greece, a leftist who transcends ideology and a national symbol of resistance — beginning in 1941, when he and a friend, Apostolos Santas, ripped down the Nazi flag from the Acropolis, risking death as Hitler’s forces conquered Athens." - Maitani

"A mushroom-shaped sea animal discovered off the Australian coast has defied classification in the tree of life. A team of scientists at the University of Copenhagen says the tiny organism does not fit into any of the known subdivisions of the animal kingdom. Such a situation has occurred only a handful of times in the last 100 years. The organisms, which were originally collected in 1986, are described in the academic journal Plos One. The authors of the article note several similarities with the bizarre and enigmatic soft-bodied life forms that lived between 635 and 540 million years ago - the span of Earth history known as the Ediacaran Period.
