Five for Friday

So this week ends with the sad news of the passing of Nelson Mandela*. The media will feed on that for a couple of days before the next hot topic. So, if you are interested in other matters, what better place than here? Your links await you:

  1. A frightening portent for New York City
  2. Be careful on Ebay
  3. Great ideas of the 20th Century
  4. The smartphone, the tablet, and Shabbat
  5. World’s hardest tongue twister

Shabbat Shalom!
