As if night was day – – – The east under a clear 90% moon. The Pleiades cluster is familiar and seen under the cloud on the right.

"The name of the Pleiades comes from Ancient Greek. It probably derives from plein ("to sail") because of the cluster’s importance in delimiting the sailing season in the Mediterranean Sea: ‘the season of navigation began with their rising’. However, in mythology the name was used for the Pleiades, seven divine sisters, the name supposedly deriving from that of their mother Pleione and effectively meaning ‘daughters of Pleione’. In reality, the name of the star cluster almost certainly came first, and Pleione was invented to explain it."

"The Pleiades are also known as the Seven Sisters and Messier 45, are an open star cluster containing middle-aged, hot B-type stars located in the constellation of Taurus. It is among the nearest star clusters to Earth and is the cluster most obvious to the naked eye in the night sky."

"The cluster is dominated by hot blue and luminous stars that have formed within the last 100 million years. A faint reflection nebulosity around the brightest stars was thought at first to be left over from the formation of the cluster (hence the alternative name Maia Nebula after the star Maia), but is now likely an unrelated foreground dust cloud in the interstellar medium, through which the stars are currently passing."

"Computer simulations have shown that the Pleiades were probably formed from a compact configuration that resembled the Orion Nebula. Astronomers estimate that the cluster will survive for about another 250 million years, after which it will disperse due to gravitational interactions with its galactic neighbourhood."

In her J. bedfellow cavalcade advancement that Jewish women abide associated with the official Los Angeles Women’s March, Clergyman Sarah Bassin of Beverly Hills Temple Emanuel writes: “Indeed, the Women’s Beforehand L.A. has taken abundant pains to analyze itself as its own abstracted grassroots article — detached with the civic administration and their controversies to drive this point home.”

Her words admonish me of aback Admiral Trump adored the participants in the neo-Nazi Charlottesville march: “Not all of those bodies were neo-Nazis, accept me. Not all of those bodies were white supremacists by any stretch.”

The admiral allegedly was apropos to the abounding bodies who marched appropriate abaft the neo-Nazis but were not affiliated. He alleged them “fine people.”

Those marchers were deepening the credo of the leaders in the advanced of the beforehand whether they advised to or not. They should not accept been there. They knew the leaders were neo-Nazis.

Neither should Jews beforehand with leaders who abutment Louis Farrakhan or absolute the tropes of anti-Semitic ideology. Jews don’t accord there.

Rabbi Bassin states, “if you accept addition applicable way to enhance women’s rights that is apprehensible by intersectional backroom and all of the adversity and affliction that comes with architecture coalitions, I’m all ears.”

Yes, rabbi, try this alternative: On Jan. 19, Jews should beforehand in a audibly abstracted march. Then they can get their bulletin beyond finer and still bottle their dignity.

Hosting Linda Sarsour on her aboriginal day in appointment is yet addition arresting that Tlaib sees her role as a adherent of eradicating the absolute Jewish State of Israel with no accountability for Palestinian responsibility, accomplishments and terror.

Let us achievement Democratic aldermanic leaders will ambit themselves from the amateur errors Tlaib is authoritative from the get-go.

This is the 10th yahrzeit for Clergyman Alan Lew z”l, the best important and avant-garde Jewish baton I’ve anytime known. He brought us aback to Judaism and accomplished our access to prayer.

Before Clergyman Lew entered our lives, my bedmate Mark and I were aberrant observers. In 1990, we confused to San Francisco and abutting Congregation Beth Sholom. Clergyman Lew accustomed two years later, and our religious activation began.

His Shabbat sermons captivated us with their symphonic symmetry. My Mondays began at 6 a.m. with his meditation, minyan, and a standing-room-only Torah abstraction class. He aggressive me to apprentice Torah trope. At age 61, I had my bat mitzvah, area I apprehend and chanted about Korah, the rebel.

He was our Rock Star Clergyman with abounding personas: writer, Zen student, amusing activist. The rabbi’s best and oldest acquaintance was Norman Fischer, a Jewish Buddhist priest. They co-founded Makor Or, the aboriginal Jewish brainwork accumulation aural a synagogue. I agilely abutting and became accomplished by bond brainwork with prayer.

At one alone meeting, I told Clergyman Lew of my sad adjournment from a haversack accumulation for actuality too slow. “But I still appetite to ascend mountains!” He replied, ”You accept the accomplished abundance to ascend still advanced of you.”

Are there actually no safe spaces larboard in the Bay Area for supporters of Israel? Case in point: Manny’s café/bookstore, amid at 3092 16th St. at Valencia in San Francisco’s Mission District. Despite buyer Emmanuel Yekutiel possessing contrarily categorical advocate credentials, his abode is now actuality picketed account on Wednesdays by a baby accumulation of acute radicals, the Lacy Parsons Project, bent to drive it out of town.

This should be accursed as pernicious political communicable of accessible places.

Such behavior charge accept best accessible opprobrium, via the three Ps: patronize, publicize, penalize.

The Z3 Conference captivated on Dec. 9 at the Palo Alto Oshman Family JCC was advised as a accommodating accomplishment by Israeli and banishment arch minds to identify, as far as Judaism is concerned, aggregate interests and goals of these two communities. One aspect that articulate adverse was the advancement by several panelists of a “reverse birthright,” or visits by Israeli adolescent bodies to America.

Just imagine: Israelis appear actuality and appointment our colleges and universities. While best accept an Israel-supporting group, the cardinal of acceptance can rarely be counted on two hands. The boycott, denial and sanctions movement, accurate by Acceptance for Justice in Palestine, is acutely arresting and alive on campuses. There is a accumulation alleged J Street U on campuses, with a lot of Jewish acceptance participating, that absolves Palestinians of any albatross for their fate and blames Israel for all ills that accept befallen them.

Visitors could apprehension one ablaze atom that does articulation the Jews of the USA and Israel, however, and it is the Ramah movement.

Austin, Texas – Home Of North America’s Largest Urban Bat Community

Austin, Texas – Home Of North America’s Largest Urban Bat Community
Austin is home to several things: live music, the University of Texas, the state capital; however several folks don’t understand Austin is additionally home to the state’s largest urban bat community-and it’s right downtown. A lot of than 750,000 Mexican Free-Tail bats build their home underneath the beams of the Congress Avenue bridge. Following renovations of the iconic bridge in 1980, the bat population took up shelter beneath the bridge, and it’s been their home every summer since.

During the cooler months, the bats build their home in Mexico, however every year during March and April they make their way North to Austin to offer birth and go after the cities abundant bugs (coincidentally, the summer months are when Austin’s cricket population reaches its height yet). And before the sun goes down, when they’re resting up for their nightly romp around Austin, the bats pay their time underneath the Congress Avenue bridge. Every evening, just before nightfall, the bats leave their refuge en masse, in an unbelievable natural exodus-a huge swarm of tons of thousands of Mexican Free-Tail bats swirls its manner up round the bridge, then dissipates as the bats head off in every direction to feast.

Apparently, the renovations created in 1980 left deep crevices within the bridge, which provide an ideal habitat for the bat colony. Many Austinites think about this an accidental blessing, as the bats are credited with greatly clipping on the insect population each inside the city and throughout the encompassing countryside. Of course, it’s estimated that, as a cluster, the bats consume between 10,000 and 30,000 pounds of insects!

This unbelievable sight has become an integral part of summer in Austin, and attracts tons of spectators nightly throughout the summer months, culminating in late August, when the colony is at its largest-averaging around 1.5 million bats. Austinites have come to treasure and even celebrate this unique natural phenomenon, with a summer celebration called BatFest. Held throughout the last weekend of August each year, BatFest brings together all of Austin’s favorite things-live music, food, folks and (you guessed it) the Mexican Free-Tail bats. The family-friendly event features academic displays, arts and crafts, and a whole host of activities centering around the Congress Avenue bridge bats-plus more than 30 bands rocking the weekend away from 2 totally different stages.

Austinites love a smart reason to party-it’s a trait town is well known for. In fact, BatFast falls just some weeks before Austin’s biggest music competition, Austin City Limits, which draws thousands of guests a year and brings the country’s hottest bands to Austin, Texas, for one sweltering weekend each September. But, in contrast to ACL or South by Southwest-Austin’s other major music competition, that conjointly doubles as a film pageant-BatFest is initial and foremost regarding promoting the protection and appreciation of one of Austin’s natural wonders.

During a city with such strong environmental pride, and wonderful resources like Barton Springs Pool and Edwards Aquifer, it’s no wonder this unimaginable phenomenon would capture the imaginations-and hearts-of thus many.

Training can be done in between all the activities and the staff can benefit from the team building by building better relationships with their peers.

You can locate conference venues just about anywhere you like. Conferencing in Australia is quite popular for a lot of the businesses in Sydney for example. North Shore Sydney Function Rooms & conference venues are the most popular places to hire in Australia at the moment. Social events, launches for products, books and new services all happen at these attractive plasces. Companies hold their team building events and staff training at these facilities because they can house a large number of people and they cater for everything from facilitating the presentation and offering lunch, to top notch accommodation where everyone can get to relax after a long day of meetings, or learning new things. In the evenings everyone can wine and dine together and relax with a few cocktails before they retire for the evening. It’s important to make sure the food is above board and tasting good before deciding on a specific venue. You don’t want to invite everyone over there for a company function and then they all end up getting sick from bad chicken. You want your staff or guests to have the best possible time when they are there so it is important to check that. The venue needs to be convenient and accessible for everyone, that way you will ensure maximum attendance for the occasion and all your staff can take advantage of the event. The function room also needs to be equipped enough to handle everything. Big screens for presentations, audio systems need to be working properly so everyone can hear. You should also consider the alternative activities that they can take part in when they are there. Golf, hiking, yoga and day spas are all great ideas for your guests.

Make the most of your venue by offering a little bit of everything for everyone. Take the time to choose the right venue and you are guaranteed to have everybody leave happy.
