Event Description

The Forty-two Journeys of the Exodus: A Six Week Class with Rabbi David Zaslow

Many people know the major stories in the Bible of the Exodus from Egypt: the ten plagues, Pharaoh letting the Hebrew slaves go, crossing the Red Sea, and Moses receiving the Torah at Mt. Sinai. However, most people do not realize that the Israelites not only lived in the wilderness for forty years, but actually stayed at forty-two resting places, averaging over a year in each location. They also gave the locations names based on what spiritual and psychological lesson they learned in each of the places. Today the etymology of the names of the forty-two resting places can be studied and treated as a psycho-spiritual template to apply one's own life. More than two-hundred years ago the Baal Shem Tov, (literally translated to mean 'the owner of a good name') founder of Hassidism, taught that everyone stops at each of the forty-two resting places during their lives.

Rabbi David Zaslow has just completed a book about the meaning of each of the forty-two resting places, which is the first time that such a comprehensive study has been made. Zaslow will teach a six-week class, beginning Tuesday, February 17 at 7:30 p.m., in which participants will learn about this extraordinary psychological map. Rabbi David says, "If you love metaphor and etymology you will really like this class. We will delve deeply into the way that Hebrew words branch out into so many possible meanings." Pre-registration is required. Call 488-7716 to pre-register or with any questions. The class fee is $10 per session plus $25 text fee.

Senate Chamber Goes Nuts After Rand Paul's Amendment to Ban Funding China Research Passes | Trending Politics & Daily Wire

The Senate chamber busted out in cheers after they unanimously passed Senator Rand Paul’s amendment that banned the United States from using taxpayer money to fund gain-of-function research in China. The Daily Wire reports: “Senate Amendment 2003, which was added to the bipartisan Endless Frontier Act, bans the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and any other U.S. agency from funding any Chinese gain-of-function research, which is a form of study that attempts to render pathogens more infectious and lethal. Paul’s amendment joined another introduced by Sens. Joni Ernst (R-IA), Roger Marshall (R-KS), and Ron Johnson (R-WI) that permanently prohibits U.S. funding for the Wuhan Institute of Virology.” “We may never know whether the pandemic arose from the lab in Wuhan, but we do know that so far no intermediate animal host has been discovered,” Paul said on the Senate floor. “Thousands of animals at the wet market have been looked at, none of them have carried COVID-19. We’ve tried to infect COVID-19 into bats, it doesn’t grow well in bats. It seems most adapted and suitable for humans.”

COVID-19 Nasal Swab Test Led To Cerebrospinal Fluid Leak | Forbes

Many who’ve had a nasal Covid-19 test performed on themselves have described it as feeling like that swab got as far back as their brains. If done correctly, the swab is angled parallel to the floor, all the way to the back of the nose, and the swab is rubbed on an area called the nasopharynx. The actual term is a nasopharyngeal swab, not nasal swab, because it’s the nasopharynx that contains the highest possible viral load to best determine an active Covid-19 infection. The distance from the average nasal tip to the nasopharynx is close to 6 inches. So if it feels like there’s a half a foot being stuck up your nose, well, you’re not so far off.

CDC says asymptomatic people don't need testing, draws criticism from experts | TheHill

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) quietly changed its guidance on Monday to now say that asymptomatic people do not need to be tested for coronavirus, even if they have been in close contact with an infected person. The agency made the move by updating its website but did not make any public announcement or explain the reasoning behind the major revision.  The guidance now states: “If you have been in close contact (within 6 feet) of a person with a COVID-19 infection for at least 15 minutes but do not have symptoms: You do not necessarily need a test unless you are a vulnerable individual or your health care provider or State or local public health officials recommend you take one.”

What Kind of Covid Test Should I Get? Answers on Cost, Accuracy and More | WSJ

There are two generally available types of Covid-19 tests. The first, and most commonly used so far, is a PCR test, which is short for polymerase chain reaction. It’s a molecular test, meaning it searches for the virus’s genetic material in a nasal swab or saliva sample, and it is often processed in a highly complex laboratory. There are two ways to collect a nasal sample: from the inside of a nostril, or from the back of the nose and throat. The second way, called a nasopharyngeal swab, requires a professional to probe more deeply into the nasal cavity to get the sample. Some testing sites may ask you to swab your nose or cheek yourself, or spit into a tube. Each of these collection methods creates a sample that can be analyzed with a PCR test. Antigen tests, which search the sample for viral proteins instead of the virus’s genetic code, are becoming more widespread in the U.S. Right now, antigen tests are typically offered at doctor’s offices, nursing homes, schools and other congregate settings where groups of people need testing fast.
