'Lost tribe' of Mallorca Jews welcomed back to the faith 600 years later

This is what really caught my eye:

"Since it has become clear this it is accepted among them that throughout the generations, most of them married among themselves, then all of those who are related to the former generations are Jews," the rabbi's decisions said, according to the Arutz Sheva website.
...
Today there are 15 popular surnames on the island that originate from the Chueta community. Around 18,000 people, including some of the island's wealthier families, bear the surnames.

Genetic studies have shown the tendency to intermarry that continued until the 1970s had produced a degree of "genetic homogeneity", according to researchers at the university of the Balearic Islands.


15 family names. 18,000 people. That is some crazy inbreeding.

Rabbis will now start teaching any who are interested in embracing Judaism. Only a handful, however, are reported to have started to attend a synagogue in the Mallorcan capital of Palma.


So these folks get declared Jews, even if they have no real interest in practicing? It seems like most religions are more keen to kick people out who don't adhere to the tenets, rather than declare them to be members.

Being Jewish does not necessarily mean one is a practiser of Judaism. There are Jewish atheists out there, for example.

yeah, being a jew is more than just being of the jewish religion, there is also jewish culture and the jewish race,
you don't say a group of african-americans aren't african-americans because they aren't from africa.... i guess would be a similar situation.

Sorry, random aside here: I always thought that was the strangest thing - that there's a Jewish race where you don't have to be religiously Jewish. Race nearly everywhere else is just where you're genes originate from. It's not tied to religion so even if you do happen to come from Spain, which is heavily Catholic, you're not from the Catholic race - you're Spanish and you're a Catholic. I understand the background behind it, I just find it odd that no other religious group is really like that.[/hijack]

It's not. The article says they've been endogamous for the last 400 years. The Spanish language Wikipedia says the entire Chueta group is only 18000-20000 people. There are 18,000 Chuetas descended from 15 original families. You do the math.

That is not necessarily the case. 15 (popular) surnames surviving does not mean 15 original families. The family's surname can be lost while its genes survive through non-surname-carrying members. It is impossible to say from this information how many original families contributed to the current gene-pool.

Cops shoot each other trying to arrest an unarmed suspect

To be fair to the cops, they probably didn't know that he was unarmed when they were arresting him. It's really lucky that they only hit other police officers responding, though, and not any innocent bystanders in the parking lot.

Again; Crocodiles and Alligators! They are dinosaurs! And; They are scary.

I have seen them. No. Not all of them, but, enough. Crocodiles are more scary than alligators. Crocodiles will kill when they are not hungry. Alligators don't, usually. Crocodiles may be smarter than previously thought. I think that they were stalking us. One or more of us could have been a tasty treat. Dumb luck was all that stood between us and the Crocodiles. We did not understand the risks until later.
They are dinosaurs! I am glad that we don't have very many of them left. Of course, these may be the only frighteningly cold blooded ones. (Shrug.)

that is what you get when you shoot before you look. Ok reaching to your waist band might seem offensive when being pursued by the police but what if his pants was dropping? Running with your pants on your ancles is not that easy. :)

had left the theater and was approaching his car when police tried to arrest him


In my mind he's reaching for his keys, arm already in motion as the police approach him from the left, they yell, he turns, they see his hand reaching toward his pocket, jump to the paranoid conclusion that ones mind immediatly jumps to when guns can be purchased from the local supermarket, draw and fire.

The also hit the unarmed suspect in the foot.

This is only humorous in a dark way. The "Haha, Belial's right, cops are trigger happy power trippers so excited to be shooting an unarmed victimsuspect that they accidentally shot other cops" kind of way.

I'm pretty sure Walmart is a department store, maybe even a warehouse? Depends on the type of Walmart store since they can vary.

edit:
Actually I got curious and looked it up on wiki, some are Hypermarkets. That's like when a supermarket and a department store have a baby.

Yeah, that's kinda what I meant. If we're defining supermarket as grocery store, Walmart wins. If we're defining it as store where you can get pretty much anything your want because it's a conglomeration of different kinds of stores in the same building, Walmart wins.

Police shooting people is not funny, anymore.
It is sad. It seems to happen, often.
The people that use the building are on TV taking sides.

Anybody can be accused of anything and the Police move in with justified swiftness?
Can we go back to something that is funny?

It is not funny to me, because, the Police were told that I am a frightening criminal. I had a great many Police contacts. NOT FUN!

Think about it. I just stand there with my hands at my sides. I have not been shot for it, yet. But, I have heard that the Police can yell at a person to lie down. If, the person does not lie down, then, that is resisting arrest.

Think about it! I would hesitate to lie down. It is not something that I do. Who lies down outside on pavement?

I have been told that the Police are allowed to shoot people that resist arrests.

The media has been using the Arabic term for dust storm to describe dust storms. Arizonans think this is an outrage.

“I am insulted that local TV news crews are now calling this kind of storm a haboob,” Don Yonts, a resident of Gilbert, Ariz., wrote to The Arizona Republic after a particularly fierce, mile-high dust storm swept through the state on July 5. “How do they think our soldiers feel coming back to Arizona and hearing some Middle Eastern term?”

“Excuse me, Mr. Weatherman!” she said in a letter to the editor. “Who gave you the right to use the word ‘haboob’ in describing our recent dust storm? While you may think there are similarities, don’t forget that in these parts our dust is mixed with the whoop of the Indian’s dance, the progression of the cattle herd and warning of the rattlesnake as it lifts its head to strike.”

Of course we can change it. That's the best thing about the English language; we can make up any words we like, and the popular ones stick.

Was Haboob introduced into English solely on the basis of it sounding like "huh boob"?
