An Emergency Tool For The Sensitive
At times there is so much suffering in the world that a sensitive person finds it difficult to tolerate. The Brisker Rav, Rabbi Yitzhak Zev Soloveitchik, applied the following Talmudic statement as his advice for such people in such times: "He who wants to live should act as if he were dead."
There are times when human suffering is so great that a person who feels the suffering of others will simply not be able to continue living. While we have an obligation to feel the suffering of others, we should protect ourselves from overdoing it and destroying ourselves.
At times, said the Brisker Rav, we should adopt an attitude as if we were no longer alive and only then will we be able to exist.

New discovery throws light on mystery of pyramids' construction
Egyptologists stumble across ramp that helps explain how huge blocks of stones were hauled into place
The mystery of how, exactly, the pyramids were built may have come a step closer to being unravelled after a team of archaeologists made a chance discovery in an ancient Egyptian quarry.
Scientists researching ancient inscriptions happened upon a ramp with stairways and a series of what they believe to be postholes, which suggest that the job of hauling into place the huge blocks of stone used to build the monuments may have been completed more quickly than previously thought.
While the theory that the ancient Egyptians used ramps to move the stones has already been put forward, the structure found by the Anglo-French team, which dated from about the period that the Great Pyramid of Giza was built, is significantly steeper than was previously supposed possible.
They believe the inclusion of the steps and the postholes either side of a rampway suggests the builders were able to haul from both directions, rather than simply dragging a block behind them. The team believes those below the block would have used the posts to create a pulley system while those above it pulled simultaneously.
They believe the find to be significant because they say it suggests the work could have been done more quickly, albeit still involving the heavy labour of a large number of people.
"The system we have discovered would allow more people to exert force at one time, so it means you would be able to exert more force and move the blocks more quickly," said Dr Roland Enmarch, a senior lecturer in Egyptology at the University of Liverpool and the co-director of the project that made the discovery, the Hatnub Survey.
He told the Guardian that he and his colleagues, including his fellow director Dr Yannis Gourdon of the Institut Français d'Archéologie Orientale (IFAO), intended to publish their findings in a peer-reviewed journal in the near future. The find was made in late September, meaning that has not yet been possible.
He said the alabaster quarry itself, as well as the inscriptions they were there to study, had been known to Egyptologists for a long time, having first been found by Howard Carter – the discoverer of Tutankhamun's tomb.
His team's original focus was not on the ramp leading down into the quarry, but on properly documenting the inscriptions found there. But their attention was soon drawn to the former's construction – and what it could tell them about how pyramids were built.
They said the inscriptions allowed them to date the ramp to around the time of the Pharoah Khufu, or Cheops, who built the Great Pyramid. While there is no proof the method was used to construct that monument, Enmarch said it was reasonable to suggest it would have been if the technique was in use in Egypt at the time.

How to memorize a deck of cards - for kids of all ages
KV Sisters Published on Jan 17, 2015 Do you want to try memorizing a deck of 52 playing cards? This fun video walks you step by step through a memory technique to achieve that feat! Made for kids of all ages :) It uses an ancient Greek memory technique from 2,500 years ago that you can use not only for playing cards, but also for other tasks at school, at work, or in life. Human brains are better at memorizing images and routes, rather than number and letters. So most people can remember scenes from a movie or route to school, but not their friend's birthday or phone number. This is because our ancestors passed on the genes of image memory and spatial memory, which they needed to guide them in hunting and going back home without the help of a GPS or address. Today, we will take advantage of this genetic strength to memorize a deck of cards. Do try it at home and let us know how well you did! Take the #CardsChallenge! We're happy to answer any questions! To see our complete list of cards-to-characters mapping, go to 2:23 min in the video You can create your own mapping. In fact, the more familiar you are with the characters you choose, the better. Study smart, play more! Half the effort, twice the result!
