EZ Reads 5/31/11

A few of the couple hundred posts I've been meaning to link to... (sigh)
  • Da'as Torah with the links relating to the extremely important White Institute's Conference on Sexual Abuse in the Orthodox Jewish Community: Report; recordings; press coverage (London Jewish Chronicle). I heard from someone who was at (and I believe presented) at the conference that the conference was excellent and the speakers extremely moving.
  • G6 on Conformity vs. Individuality.
  • Harry on The Jewish Hammer, the Chicago Bears' first-round pick Gabe Corsi.
  • DA with some funny cartoons relating to Obama's statement about the 1967 borders.
  • (HT: Eliyahu Fink) Touched by a Landing, one passenger's retrospective on the ElAl flight which thankfully landed safely after trouble with its landing gear.
  • R' Gil - Teiku on Faith. The comments are interesting as well.
  • An awesome video (play in full screen) courtesy of Popular Science (via Meryl), if you like some beautiful night sky. Wow.
  • Great ad which shows what kind of physicality is required to drive in the 24-hour Le Mans race in Europe. "Breathe in or my lungs will be crushed" - pretty crazy. I've long found it interesting that race drivers are ridiculously athletic and assumed it played a role, but it's cool to see just how that's so.
