Health Service Break Through!

One day, Pete complained to his friend, “My head really hurts. I guess I should see a doctor.”

His friend said, “Don’t do that. There’s a computer at the drug store that can diagnose anything quicker and cheaper than a doctor. Simply tell it the problem, put in a sample of your urine, and the computer will diagnose it and tell you what you can do about the issue you’re having. It only costs $20.00.”

 
Pete figured he had nothing to lose, so he filled a jar with a urine sample and went to the drug store. Finding the computer, he poured in the sample and deposited the $20.00.
The computer started making some noise and various lights started flashing. After a brief pause, out popped a small slip of paper which read:
 
computer person
You have migrains. You need to take better care of yourself. Get a daily rest, drink a lot and avoid bright lights, stress and strain. See me again in 2 weeks.
 
During the next 2 weeks, while thinking how amazing this new technology was and how it would change medical science forever, he began to wonder if this could be fooled. He decided to give it a try. He mixed together some tap water, a stool sample from his dog, and urine samples from his wife and daughter. To top it off, he even added some oil from his car. 
He went back to the drug store, located the computer, poured in the sample and deposited the $20.00, again stating he had a bad headache. He awaited curiously to see what the computer will say about the odd mix.  The machine again made the usual noises, flashed lights, and printed out the following analysis:

 

Your tap water has too much waste in it.

headache


Your dog has ringworms. 

Your teenage daughter is pregnant.

Your wife has had 5 different lovers in the past six months.

Also, your car needs a new radiator.

And you wonder why you have a headache? 

Saudi Arabia: World’s Human Rights Sewer

The United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) in Geneva is an organization that may be easy to critique, but it is very hard to satirize. Ordinarily, if you told anyone that there was a place in Switzerland where Sudan, Iran and others of the world’s worst dictatorships and human rights abusers have their views on human rights treated with respect and deference, you would assume the script was written by Monty Python. Idi Amin would make an appearance at some point to share his views on how to improve equal conditions for women in the workplace. Pol Pot would crop up in order to castigate those countries where living standards had not been sufficiently raised in accordance with global averages.

Everything that happens in Geneva is beyond satire. But last week provides a demonstration, outrageous even by the standards of the UN. For this week, it came out – thanks to the excellent organization UN Watch — that Saudi Arabia has been appointed as the head of a key UNHRC panel. This panel selects the top officials who shape international standards in human rights; it is intended to report on human rights violations around the world. The five-member group of ambassadors, which Saudi Arabia will now head, is known as the Consultative Group and has the power to select applicants to fill more than 77 positions worldwide that deal with human rights issues. It appears that the appointment of Saudi Arabia’s envoy to the UNHRC, Faisal Trad, was made before the summer, but that diplomats in Geneva have kept silent on the matter since then.

Meandering Thoughts on the Israeli Front Lines

Beyond the Cusp

Let us start with the United Nations and before reporting on the predictably less wonderful reports refer to yesterday’s article which will be right below this or on the top of the next page and is titled Historic First Tashlich Observed at the United Nations which told about the using of a Jewish tradition for casting away sins by throwing bread upon the waters. The story related how a European Christian group called Forum for Cultural Diplomacy made all the arrangements which was something of a pleasant surprise. The service can be viewed at the article and is just under twelve minutes long. Of course this event was arranged very tactically to coincide with the opening ceremonies for the United Nations General Assembly and all the unbelievable garbage which will ensue. It is awful enough to hear Iranian President Rowhani give a speech calling for the rest of the world…

Turkey’s Islamist Factory Settings

Israel-bashing and the systematic fueling of anti-Semitic behavior have become a Turkish political pastime since Turkey downgraded its diplomatic ties with Israel in 2010. There has been, though, relative tranquility and reports of a potential thaw since June 7, when Turkey’s Islamist government lost its parliamentary majority for the first time since it rose to power in 2002.

In August, a senior Hamas official, apparently hosted for some time by an all-too affectionate Turkish government, vanished into thin air. Saleh al-Arouri, a veteran Hamas official and one of the founders of its military wing, the Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades, was forced to leave Israel in 2010, after serving more than 15 years in prison. After his release, he was believed to be living in Istanbul. In August 2014, at a meeting of the International Union of Islamic Scholars in Istanbul, al-Arouri said that Hamas was behind the kidnapping of three Israeli teenagers in the West Bank, an incident that triggered a spiral of violence in Gaza and Israel that summer.

Driving Tips

Good vision in a downpour
 
How to achieve good vision while driving during a heavy downpour.

We are not sure why it is so effective; Just try this method when it rains heavily. we heard of his method from a police friend who had experienced and confirmed it.

It is useful…even driving at night. Most of the motorists would turn wind shield wipers on ‘HIGH’ or on the ‘FASTEST SPEED’ during heavy downpour, yet the visibility in front of the windshield is still bad.

In the event you face such a situation, just put on your ‘SUNGLASSES’ and miracles! All of a sudden, the visibility in front of your windshield is perfectly clear, as if there is no visible rain.

Make sure you always have a pair of SUNGLASSES in your car.

You are not only helping yourself to drive safely with good vision, but also might
save someone’s life by giving him this idea. Try it yourself and share it with your friends…!!!

Amazingly, you’ll still see the drops on the windshield, but not the sheet of rain falling. You’ll also see where the rain bounces off the road. Wearing sunglasses works to eliminate the “blindness” from passing cars, or the “kickup” if you are following a car in the rain.

They ought to teach this little tip in driver’s training manual. It really does work. This is a good  warning. I wonder how many  people knew about this.

Another good tip:
A 36 year old female had an accident several weeks ago. It was raining, though not excessively when her car suddenly began to hydro-plane and  literally flew
through the air.

She was not seriously injured, but very stunned at the sudden occurrence! When she explained to the Police Officer what had happened, he told her something that every driver should know – NEVER –  EVER ‘DRIVE’ IN THE RAIN WITH YOUR CRUISE CONTROL ON.’ She how-ever, thought she was being cautious by setting the cruise control & maintaining a safe consistent speed in the rain.*

But the Police Officer told her that if the cruise control is on, your car will in fact
begin to hydro-plane. *When the tires lose contact with the road, your car will
automatically accelerate to a higher rate of speed, making you take off like an airplane.*

She told the Officer that was exactly what had  occurred. The Officer said; ‘This warning should be listed, on the driver’s seat sun-visor – *’NEVER* USE THE CRUISE CONTROL WHEN THE ROAD IS  WET OR ICY’.

Along with the airbag warning, ‘we tell our teenagers to set  the cruise control and drive a safe speed – but; ‘we don’t tell them to use the cruise control only when the road is dry. The only person the accident victim found who knew this, (besides the Officer), was a man who’d  had a similar accident, totaled his car and had sustained severe injuries.
 
NOTE:
Some vehicles (like the Toyota Sienna Limited XLE)  will not allow you to set the cruise control when your windshield wipers are on.
