News, Precious, and Target: OUL vladislava: mylistofthangs: Antique Jewish wedding rings.  These are absolutely gorgeous. Some info: Antique Jewish wedding bands are stellar examples of the artistry of jewelry making. The rings are made of a metal circle, molded to fit the would-be owner, topped with an architectural feature resembling a house. The goldsmith would then engrave something on the exterior of the “house”; engravings were also commonly hidden inside, in which case the “house” – or bezel – would slide open. The engraving would usually read Mazal Tov, or the Hebrew initials M.T. The rings’ houses varied in design from castle-like, to square, round or hexagonal. The structures were representations of either the Holy Temple or synagogues in the diaspora. Large in diameter and heavy due to the architectural features, many of the rings are practically unwearable. Morgan ponders the question as well, saying that there is no conclusive evidence, either in Jewish tradition or in the Christian documentation recording Jewish practices, of such rings ever having been worn. Trading in gold, jewels and precious stones was the trade of choice by wealthy Jewish merchants for hundreds of years. The memoir portrait of Gluckel of Hamlen, the daughter of a gold merchant of those times, depicts a wedding ring embroidered in gold thread, hanging from a necklace, which may have been the way the rings were worn after the wedding ceremony.  Jewish wedding bands are unique and although many of them are magnificent and expensive, none have stones set in them. The rings are devoid of their classical focal point due to a rabbinical ordinance barring setting gemstones in wedding bands, or engraving them with hallmarks – the latter first appearing in the 19th century. Also, Jewish goldsmiths were not allowed to join guilds and mark their creations until circa that time. (via)

"Essentially today's City Council vote was to establish a pathway forward for legislation, and to work out some basic framework issues that have been plaguing the conversation for years. Chief among the advocate's concerns was the idea of a business veto, which would essentially give brick and mortar business (restaurants and beyond) the ability to say no to sidewalk vendors within their immediate area. The issue has proven so tense that seven female protestors from the LA Street Vendor Campaign were arrested in front of City Hall last month while campaigning against the measure The new plan is to work out a compromisebetween business owners and street food vendors about where, and when, they can all operate together. A motion put forward by Councilmembers Joe Buscaino, Curren Price Jr., and Jose Huizar to leave out the business veto was ultimately approved and successfully voted on today, and now Huizar and others have 60 days to create a draft ordinance for what shape street food legalization will ultimately take FULL ARTICLE ON IG BIO LINK #VendedoresUnidos #StreetVendors #EstaEsMiTierra #EstaEsMiLucha #WorkersUnite #Solidarity #UnionDel Barrio IO goawfma: HERE.

Community, Life, and Memes: Nevada City Becomes First In The World To Enforce Chemtrail Free Zone New law will prevent chemtrails in city skies By: lacky Murphy on 8th July 2016 40am © press CHEMTRAIL Free Zone LOOK UP ANY PERSON CAUGHT WITH OHt Nevada city has now declared it will be a Chemtrail free zone according to City Hall insiders. Nevada City, CA — As the city council seats with new members this year, notably controversial community activist Reinette Senum, first on the agenda according to City Hall insiders will be a declaration that Nevada City is a Chemtrail-free zone. This will make the rustic gold rush town the first in the nation to enact such a law. “It’s clear that the global elite are trying to control everything,” said Green Party member Derrick Packard speaking after the swearing-in ceremony. “We need to demonstrate to the world that the buck stops here in Nevada City. If you control the skies, you control life.” Learn More When asked what impact a local ordinance would have on the global chemtrail conspiracy, Mr. Packard bristled. “This is about small steps,” continued an agitated Mr. Packard. “Think global; act local. I’m sure you’ve heard that before, right? Built into the proposed ordinance is language that allows us to use the city’s general fund to sue chemtrail flyovers. We are under no illusion that this is an uphill battle, but we mean business.” According to the Nevada City Treasurer, it is unclear what the fiscal impact will be on this ordinance. However given the recent litigious and fruitless efforts by the county Board of Supervisors, legal action could run into the millions. The tab could be especially high due to the fact that there is zero evidence of any global chemtrail conspiracy, which could contribute to forensic investigations outlays reaching into the millions before the first court motion is drafted. Despite this, area activists are unrelenting. “How much is it worth to you to save your planet?” Questioned a rhetorical Mr. Packard has he pointed to the clear blue sky above Nevada City. “We want the world to know that our little town is leading the charge against the elite brainiacs who want everything for themselves. As Howard Zinn taught us [editor’s note: Mr. Packard went on for another 45 minutes discussing Professor Zinn.]” As for other pressing Nevada City business, also on the agenda is the a motion to remove all radio producing devices except for lo

Memes, Uno, and Iowa: different ANIMALI I corvi riescono a riconoscere i volti umani. Riescono anche a ricordare chi amico e chi nemico e si comunicano tra di loro quali uomini devono evitare thedifferentgroup.com Fonte: New York Times NON SOLO GLI ELEFANTI, ANCHE I CORVI HANNO UN'OTTIMA MEMORIA È da molto che i corvi vengono elogiati per la loro grande intelligenza: riescono a ricordare i visi, a usare degli strumenti e a comunicare in modo sofisticato. I corvi sono anche in grado di risolvere problemi di relazione-associazione di ordine superiore e lo possono fare spontaneamente, secondo uno studio pubblicato di recente. Ciò significa che i corvi si aggiungono alle persone, alle scimmie e ai primati, dimostrando di poter fare un ragionamento relazionale complesso. «Ciò che hanno fatto i corvi è una prodezza fenomenale», ha dichiarato Ed Wasserman, professore di psicologia alla Università di Iowa e autore dello studio corrispondente. «Questa è la meraviglia dei risultati. Tutto ciò era già stato fatto prima con i primati e le scimmie, ma ora si sta parlando di un uccello; ma non di un uccello qualsiasi, bensì di un uccello con un cervello speciale rispetto agli altri, come lo è quello dei primati rispetto agli altri mammiferi».
