first they have to try

The courts in Jerusalem yesterday responded to a petition regarding the defacing of images of women on signs in the public sphere. The courts said that the City of Jerusalem must coordinate and meeting with representatives of the police and come up with an organized plan to fight this phenomenon, and hire new workers within 3 months to be ready to respond to such calls in real time.

Interestingly, the judge, Shirley Renner, said that it is inconceivable that people who break the law will be the ones left to administer the public sphere. 

The City of Jerusalem responded that they have plans for 2022 to expand the network of security cameras across the entire city. These cameras will help them with enforcement of various crimes, along with increasing the sense of security and safety. They will also set budgets and resources for establishing a unit responsible for these cameras and enforcement, in coordination with the relevant security forces.

Will it help? Who knows? First they have to even try. This is a crime that is very difficult to enforce and to catch the perpetrators. So first they have to try. And if the cameras help them see who is doing it, at least in most cases, they still have to identify the people involved and then fine them and use even harsher punishments for deterrence if the fines dont help. But first they have to try. So far authorities have not really even tried to solve this.

mailing it in

So, according to an article in TOI, people mailed in samples of their poop for analysis and the research discovered that tweaking the bacteria in anyone's poop could turn them into a morning person. 

I feel bad for the mailman.

And who got the job for receiving these packages and opening/preparing them for the scientists to do their research?

at the Kodesh Kodoshim....hmmmm

this ad was in this past week's Hamodia...




I didnt know they allow people to go up to Har Habayit at all, let alone to go into the Kodesh Kodoshim....I guess the Gedolei Hatorah must have changed their opinions on this matter....I might even make a donation!

Proposed Law: Daylight Savings Time, again

yes, Daylight Savings Time is back in the news again with attempts to adjust it. it was so nice when it was set in law for the long term and it did not become a fight year after year as to when the clocks should be adjusted. It seems those days are over. 

Minister of Interior Ayelet Shaked has announced that she is going to push through an amendment to the law that sets the dates for DST. Shaked wants "Winter Time" to end 3 weeks earlier, at the beginning of March, instead of at the end of March.

According to Shaked, the kids will still go to school in the light, and people will still have time to daven before work even with the new timing of DST, and we will have the added benefit of being more in line with the clocks of the USA where DST is adjusted at the beginning of March.

I am not sure why we need to be in line with the USA clocks, though I do admit that as an expat from the USA it can get difficult to know or remember what time it is in the US during those gap periods where we have already switched over and they have not yet, or vice versa and this will ease that.

MK Uri Maklev (UTJ) is opposed to this change. According to Maklev the calendars for the year are already printed and you cannot just change the clocks in the middle of the year. Doing so will cause people to be mechalel shabbos, as they will continue to follow the times printed in the calendars, even though they would be wrong if this goes through..

Maklev is not wrong, though I am not sure the guy printing a calendar is the one to be deciding policy. It would make sense to pass such a law to go into effect in the coming year instead of immediately.
