EZ Reads 5/22/09

  • G6 has the video of her son Joey on Who Wants to be a Millionaire - a nice kiddush Hashem, I must say. Seems like a really great guy.
  • While I was reading a piece about the latest "American Girl" doll being a Jewish one, I stumbled on this interesting piece about an Israeli woman who won an Arabic literary prize. Impressive.
  • (via Jack) Apparently, ABC goes to J-bloggers to get opinions on news stories, like this one about the first black female Rabbi in the US. It quotes R' Gil Student and Shlomah Shamos of VIN.
  • BaltimoreJewish discusses ParnasaFest, coming very soon in Baltimore.
  • Google is using an algorithm to figure out which of its employees might quit.
  • New York has the worst drivers. Who knew!?
  • The pic at right of the Milky Way is a tiny version of a beautiful one. Jack has the link to the full thing - wow.
  • An absolutely wonderful piece on Cleveland and the Cavs in this week's Sports Illustrated by Joe Posnanski. Opening line:

    What are two things you will never see in Cleveland?
    A victory parade and the sky.

Have a wonderful Shabbos, everyone!
