Mindreading software could eavesdrop on your secret inner voice and showdown of the unbeatables

Not Speaking Against Others

Some people try to build themselves up by speaking against others.

They believe that talking about the faults and limitations of others makes themselves seem better and more elevated than those people.

It is a total illusion to think that you are actually building yourself up when you put others down.

Speaking against other people is a violation of the Torah commandment to refrain from speaking lashon hara (negative speech).

Someone who speaks against others without a practical and constructive purpose is lowering himself by doing so.

Every time you control what you say and don't speak against others, you become a higher and more elevated person.

Love Yehuda Lave

U.S. President Barack Obama on Tuesday sent Jews around the world his traditional greeting in honor of the holiday of Hanukkah.

Hanukkah, the Festival of Lights, began on Tuesday evening.

"Over the eight nights of Hanukkah, Jews across America, Israel, and the world will remember an ancient triumph of freedom over oppression, and renew their faith in the possibility of miracles large and small," said Obama.

"Even in the darkest, shortest days of winter, the Festival of Lights brims with possibility and hope.  The courage of the Maccabees reminds us that we too can overcome seemingly insurmountable odds.  The candles of the Menorah remind us that even the smallest light has the power to shine through the darkness.  And the miracle at the heart of Hanukkah – the oil that lasted for eight nights instead of only one – reminds us that even when the future is uncertain, our best days are yet to come," he added.

"May this Hanukkah embolden us to do what is right, shine a light on the miracles we enjoy, and kindle in all of us the desire to share those miracles with others. From my family to yours, Chag Sameach," concluded Obama.

Does this include getting rid of him?
