There is a spiritual principal that teaches, "If you spot it, you got it." There are millions of piece of information that bombard our eyes, ears and brain every second. Why do two people in the same place and time focus on different things? It is because our mind can only accept things that are there are ready. In addition to this fact when we make up our mind 100% to anything, we are no longer able to see or hear of think about new information we are exposed to.
If you see something good in another, it is a reflection of the good in yourself.
Make up your mind to be have an open mind about everything (except for belief in G-d-there are exceptions to every rule) and learn and be exposed to new information.
Frank Foley lived a quiet life in a small English town after World War II. His neighbors had no idea that this short, unassuming man was a hero who led a dangerous double life in Nazi Germany. He had been head of Britain's intelligence service and saved thousands of Jewish lives.
Based in Berlin in the 1930s, his official job was passport control officer for the British. In actuality, he was the head of the Berlin office of MI6, Britain's secret intelligence service.
As a spy, Major Foley had a dramatic career. He organized the operation that saved Norway's gold reserves from the Nazis and persuaded leading German scientists not to pass on essential data about atomic research to the Nazi leadership. He also convinced scores of German spies to become double agents.
A life-long devout Catholic, Foley was greatly moved by the Nazi persecution of Jews, and assisted thousands to escape from Germany.
Following Kristallnacht in 1938, he wrote in a confidential report to London: "The Nazi party has not departed from its original intentions and its ultimate aim remains the disappearance of the Jews from Germany."
Though immigration rules still remained strict at that time of economic depression, many Jews realized the danger and tried to flee from the Nazi threat.
Defying the unrelenting policy of his own Foreign Office, Foley issued 10,000 visas for British Mandate Palestine. Without diplomatic immunity in Berlin, he ran a serious risk of being discovered by the Nazis. Despite the great personal danger to himself and his family, he continued to forge visas and passport documents for Jews attempting to flee Germany and Austria. He entered concentration camps to secure the release of Jewish prisoners. It is believed that he saved about 10,000 lives.
Frank Foley's wife, Kay, reported: "Jews trying to find a way out of Germany queued in the hundreds outside the British consulate, clinging to the hope that they would get a passport or a visa. Day after day we saw them standing along the corridors, down the steps and across the large courtyard, waiting their turn to fill in the forms that might lead to freedom. In the end, that queue grew to be a mile long. Some were hysterical. Many wept. All were desperate. With them came a flood of cables and letters from other parts of the country, all pleading for visas and begging for help. For them, Frank's yes or no really meant the difference between a new life and the concentration camps. But there were many difficulties. How could so many people be interviewed before their turn came for that dreaded knock on the door…
"Frank worked from 7 am to 10 pm without a break. He would handle as many applications himself as he could manage and would walk among his staff of examiners to see where he could assist them, or give advice and words of comfort to those who waited."
Wim Van Leer, also involved in helping Jews to escape from Nazi Germany, noted that "the winter of 1938 was a harsh one and elderly men and women waited from six in the morning, queuing up in the snow and biting wind. Captain Foley saw to it that a uniformed commissionaire trundled a tea-urn on a trolley along the line of frozen misery…"
Miriam Posner, a Jewish girl of sixteen, traveled from East Prussia to beg for a visa to Palestine, although she did not meet Britain's stiff conditions for entry. She maintained: "Foley saved my life. We heard that there was this man Foley who was kind to the Jews. My mother begged him. He just paced up and down a little and then asked for my passport and put the visa stamp on it. He did not ask any questions." She added, "He was small and quiet. You would never suspect he was a spy."
The Frank Foley memorial plaque in Stourbridge
Ze'ev Padan's father was interned in Sachsenhausen concentration camp when Foley rescued him. Ze'ev too was saved by Foley's defiance of authority.
By the time of the infamous Kristallnacht pogrom in November 1938, Foley and his wife had undertaken something even more dangerous: sheltering Jews overnight in their apartment. Among their "guests" was Leo Baeck, chairman of the Association of German Rabbis.
In September 1939, when the war began, Foley returned to England. However he left behind a thick stack of pre-approved visas with instructions that they should be distributed to those fleeing the Nazis.
After the war, Frank Foley and his wife Kay retired to the small town of Stourbridge. He lived quietly, enjoying his garden and chatting with the local children. Since he rarely mentioned his wartime experiences, the neighbors had no idea that a hero lived in their midst.
He died in 1958 at the age of 74. Three years after his death, Mrs. Foley finally revealed his brave exploits.
Britishjournalist Michael Smith brought Foley's unknown story to light in his book Foley, the Spy who saved 10,000 Jews, published in 1999:
"Foley clearly ranked alongside the likes of Oskar Schindler and Raoul Wallenberg and yet his name was virtually unknown. I set out to find out the truth about Foley. One of my first stops was Yad Vashem, the Israeli Holocaust Memorial Center, where I asked if Foley had ever been considered for the honor of Righteous Among Nations, the accolade accorded to any gentile who helped save even one Jew from the Holocaust."
Although officials at Yad Vashem had heard of Foley, they claimed there was no evidence to support his case. However, a document in its archives written by Hubert Pollack, a Jewish aid worker, who had worked alongside Foley in Berlin, described how Foley had saved tens of thousands of Jews from the Nazis.
This was the first of many testimonies by prominent Jews who had known Foley. The most dramatic came during the 1961 trial in Israel of Adolf Eichmann. One of the chief prosecution witnesses, Benno Cohn, former chairman of the Zionist Organization of Germany, paid tribute to Foley.

"There was one man who stood out above all others like a beacon," said Cohn. "Captain Foley, Passport Officer in the British Consulate in the Tiergarten in Berlin, a man who in my opinion was one of the greatest among the nations of the world. It was possible to bring a great number of people to Israel through the help of this most wonderful person. He rescued thousands of Jews from the jaws of death."
Hubert Pollack, a Zionist agent, pointed out that Foley was also aware of the secret Zionist organization Mossad LeAliyah Bet which smuggled Jews into British-controlled Palestine. However, Foley had not reported it, as required, to his superiors.
Thanks to the Holocaust Educational Trust, the evidence Michael Smith collected was given to Yad Vashem. After officials interviewed the living witnesses he found in researching the book, they finally awarded Foley the title of Righteous Among the Nations in 1999 and a tree was planted for him in Jerusalem.
There is also a plaque in Foley's honor in the British Embassy in Berlin and another in the town of Stourbridge. An 8-foot high stone statue in his birthplace of Highbridge also provides a permanent tribute to this quiet hero.
Ghost Car Commercial Was Never Aired Because Of The Unexplained Event Caught On Camera!
Some years ago, a British camera crew was filming a television commercial for a car company. In the ad, a car makes its way along a winding road in a lovely, verdant stretch of countryside.
Really makes you want to get behind the wheel and enjoy some scenery, doesn't it? And of course, getting you behind the wheel was the whole point of the commercial.
There's a whole lot more to producing a commercial than just filming it. An editor has to work it over, taking great care to make sure everything is just right. They see the footage over and over and over again, always looking closely for the slightest problem.
For the editor of this commercial, everything seemed pretty routine: just a car gliding through beautiful countryside. But then he noticed it. The "it" was moving along side the car. It looked like a bit of mist, but there was something, frankly, ghostly about it. Maybe it really was just mist but it sure looked spooky.
Imagine the looks on everyone's faces when they found out that a year before, someone had been killed in an accident at the very spot where the "mist" starts appearing in the commercial. The people at the company that commissioned the ad were so freaked out, the commercial was never aired.
We've posted the video below. Remember, you have to pay very, very close attention. Watch very carefully. Make sure you read the intro.
Ghosts are a controversial topic. Some people believe in them and even swear they've seen them personally.
Others think the whole idea is silly. Scientists view the matter with skepticism: they won't be convinced until they see some seriously good evidence.
If we all agree it's ok, is it ok?

This is an amazing display of laser projection technology. It is a photographic process that produces images thanks to the differences between 2 laser beams. These images are projected into a gym using a special camera. There is not a drop of water in this room, let alone a whale. Imagine seeing this when you are sitting at your high school gym.
The latest sleep guidelines confirm that most adults need around eight hours of sleep for optimal health. Individual sleep requirements can vary, of course, based on age, life circumstances, and health status.
Sleep debt is a recipe for health problems down the road, and an increased risk of dementia is just one potential side effect.

Labor Knesset Leader Condemned for her Anti-Family Stance on Australian TVBy JNi.Media - 27 Tishri 5778 – October 17, 2017
Back in September, Merav Michaeli, Chair of the Zionist Camp, a.k.a. Labor Party appeared on an ABC TV debate on the usefulness of the institution of marriage and the nuclear family in today's society, and expressed views that would likely infuriate many of her own supporters, never mind the vast majority of Jewish and Arab Israelis. A month or so later, as word of her fierce anti-family agenda traveled back to the Mediterranean basin, the raging condemnations in response were equally fierce.
Channeling Betty Friedan and 1970s dust-covered feminist manifestos, MK Michaeli told the Australian panel, comprised of Zed Seselja, Assistant Minister for Social Services and Multicultural Affairs; Mark Dreyfus, Shadow Attorney-General; Lucy Gichuhi, Independent Senator for South Australia; and philosopher A.C. Grayling, that the family institution "was created back at a time when we, women, were commodities, as were children, as were men without property and of other colors. This is not something that we should maintain in a world when we realize all of us are human beings.
"It is not about love, I realize that the campaign for the 'yay' suggests that love is equal. Love is definitely equal – [but] it's got nothing to do with this institution. This is a tool that was made to dominate women for the sake of reproduction, for men to have legal custody over children which are to the largest, I would say, chance of certainty, their own flesh and blood. This is not something that we should sustain."
Michaeli also suggested that, in fact, the nuclear family is the most dangerous place for children, since every fifth child, according to her stats, undergoes some kind of sexual, physical or emotional abuse.
"Hallucinatory, Hallucinatory, Hallucinatory," MK Betzalel Smotritz (Habayit Hayehudi) tweeted on Tuesday, calling the Labor Chairperson's views "distortions that can only be invented by the brains of a wretched person who has never experienced parenthood and family."
Michaeli, who shares a duplex apartment in Tel Aviv with her partner, comedian and television host and producer Lior Schleien, is, indeed childless. She is also renowned in Israeli society for her much mocked and maligned use of Hebrew grammar, insisting on expressing both the feminine and masculine cases for every verb and adjective, thus making her speech cumbersome and needlessly complicated.
Back in 2012, just before joining the Labor party, Michaeli delivered a major speech about the need for society to undergo a paradigm shift and "cancel marriage."
MK Yehuda Glick (Likud) also responded on Twitter to the senior Labor MK comments, stating that "it turns out that there are clear truths that need to be repeated in a loud and clear voice. A warm family is the best place to raise a child!"
Erez Tadmor, one of the founders of the Im Tirtzu movement, attacked Michaeli, saying, "The dark […] days are already here. A senior politician wants to crush the family and set government criteria that will determine whether you can raise your children. Frightening."
LIGO Detector Confirms 1989 Hebrew U. Prediction that Neutron Star Mergers Produce Gamma Ray Bursts By David Israel - 27 Tishri 5778 – October 17, 2017
Two years ago, the LIGO gravitational wave detector stunned the world with the discovery of a merger of two black holes. This past August, LIGO did it again: with the help of a second detector called VIRGO, it discovered a new source of gravitational radiation. Seconds later, NASA's Fermi satellite detected a gamma-ray burst from the same direction. Several hours later, a telescope in Chile identified the source at a Galaxy located 120 million light years away. While this is an enormous distance for us, on a cosmological scale it is relatively close.
Since these initial discoveries, most of the telescopes in the world, including the Hubble Space Telescope, have observed this galactic event. The results, which have been kept secret until now (despite a partial leak), are reported today in several scientific papers published in the prestigious journals Physical Review Letters, Nature, Science and the Astrophysical Journal.
These observations confirm a longstanding prediction made almost thirty years ago by a team headed by Prof. Tsvi Piran at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Piran is the Schwartzman Chair for Theoretical Physics at the Hebrew University's Racah Institute of Physics. The prediction, published in Nature in 1989 ("Nucleosynthesis, neutrino bursts and ?-rays from coalescing neutron stars"), suggests that when two neutron stars merge they emit, in addition to gravitational waves, a burst of gamma-rays. They also synthesize and eject to outer space rare heavy elements, like gold, plutonium and uranium. The merged neutron stars form a black hole in this process.
Neutron stars are rare types of stars that are produced in supernova explosions when a regular star dies. Unlike regular matter that is composed from 50% neutron and 50% protons, neutron stars are made just from neutrons. Due to their strange composition, they are extremely dense: a teaspoon of neutron star matter weights about 100 million tons, and a neutron star of 10 km (smaller than the width of Jerusalem) weights about a million times the mass of Earth.
Shortly after the discovery of a binary neutron star pair in 1975, researchers realized that that such a pair would emit gravitational radiation and eventually merge. The question that Piran and colleagues asked in 1989 was: in addition to the gravitational radiation, what else will be emitted as a result of this merger?
They suggested that the merger will produce a burst of gamma-rays — which have the smallest wavelengths and the most energy of any other wave in the electromagnetic spectrum — and at the same time will synthesize and eject into outer space freshly synthesized heavy elements like gold, plutonium and uranium. The ultimate result will be a black hole.
This prediction, which Piran and colleagues published in Nature, was met with skepticism and initially ignored. However, Piran continued to work on it, and indirect evidence in its favor mounted over the years. These last observations confirm it without any doubt.
"I am exhilarated by this confirmation of a prediction we made nearly thirty years ago," said Prof. Tsvi Piran following today's announcement confirming his prediction. "I also remember how difficult it was to convince the scientific community of our idea: at the time it was against the standard model that was published even in freshman textbooks on astronomy. When we made this prediction in 1989, we did not expect it to be confirmed within our lifetimes. But with continued curiosity and the development of new technologies, we are able learn ever deeper truths about the nature of our Universe."
LIGO's observations have now confirmed that the recent event involved a binary neutron star merger, and the formation of a black hole. The Fermi satellite detected the predicted gamma-rays, and the optical observation confirmed the nucleosynthesis of heavy elements. All of this is published today in multiple research papers, with Piran's participation in several papers published in the journals Nature, Science and The Astrophysical Journal. These observations solve several puzzles that have bothered astronomers over the years, and open new ways to understand the nature of our Universe.

G-d's plan for ageing.
Most seniors never get enough exercise. In His wisdom God decreed that seniors become forgetful so they would have to search for their glasses, keys, and other things, thus doing more walking. And God looked down and saw that it was good.
Then God saw there was another need. In His wisdom He made seniors lose coordination so they would drop things, requiring them to bend, reach, and stretch. And God looked down and saw that it was good.
Then God considered the function of bladders and decided seniors would have additional calls of nature, requiring more trips to the bathroom, thus providing more exercise. God looked down and saw that it was good.
So if you find as you age, you are getting up and down more, remember it's God's will. It is all in your best interest even though you mutter under your breath.
Nine Important Facts to Remember as We Grow Older
#9 Death is the number 1 killer in the world.
#8 Life is sexually transmitted.
#7 Good health is merely the slowest possible rate at which one can die.
#6 Men have 2 motivations: hunger and hanky panky, and they can't tell them apart. If you see a gleam in his eyes, make him a sandwich.
#5 Give a person a fish and you feed them for a day. Teach a person to use the Internet and they won't bother you for weeks, months, maybe years.
#4 Health nuts are going to feel stupid someday, lying in the hospital, dying of nothing.
#3 All of us could take a lesson from the weather. It pays no attention to criticism.
#2 In the 60's, people took LSD to make the world weird. Now the world is weird, and people take Prozac to make it normal.
#1 Life is like a jar of jalapeno peppers. What you do today may be a burning issue tomorrow.
Please share this wisdom with others while I go to the bathroom.
