Originally On LinkedIn: Will Microsoft Clean Up LinkedIn? Let's Hope—I Myself've Had Enough Of LinkedIn Being A Facebook | Nicole V. Czarnecki | Pulse | LinkedIn

When I read that LinkedIn will come under the umbrella of Microsoft at a price of $26.2B, I thought, "I just hope that their investment's worth it." Since Bill Gates is a technological pioneer, job creator, and philanthropist, though, it probably is. "Probably", of course, concerns whether Bill Gates has Microsoft and LinkedIn create jobs and retain employees within the United States—and even allied countries, especially where American expats live.
If Bill Gates and LinkedIn under Microsoft outsource (at least to tenuous allies, and somehow even to enemies—which they could scarily do), then LinkedIn'd've been better off remaining under its own umbrella. If, on the other hand, Bill Gates and Microsoft employ within and keep employees from the United States—and allied countries such as Israel, where many America-born olim and their sabra descendants live—then LinkedIn may reform and thrive under the Microsoft umbrella.
Besides, for LinkedIn to hire in, e.g., Tel Aviv and Jerusalem would take ko'ach after they stood in solidarity with Orlando—as opposed to the chutzpah that taking the usual path of least resistance would take. After all, by the way, plenty of out-of-work Sodastream alumni would consider a job at LinkedIn—perhaps especially if they're already using LinkedIn to try to find a jobs in lieu of their jobs at Sodastream, and perhaps if they want to work at LinkedIn to help others find jobs through the company through and at which they find jobs.
As I stated, let's hope that Bill Gates and Microsoft wisely invested $26.2B into bringing LinkedIn under their umbrella—since those who want to use LinkedIn as a professional network, the American out-of-work-for-now workforce, and out-of-work Sodastream almuni are among those whom count on Bill Gates and Microsoft to help put them to work by putting $26.2B to work.

Just A Pause...

I was looking at a photo which was posted in a Jewish group for those of us who have roots in Poland. Then I came across the picture...the picture that was captioned that he attended his first bar- and bat-mitzvah ceremony, and that he enjoyed attending....and I knew that, that could've been him.

The bar-mitzvah. Not that he isn't or wouldn't be; it's just the family is so assimilated. The rest of the caption read that his mother was asking herself where the time has gone. I wonder why she didn't say something like, "The funny thing is that, that could've been him." Maybe she was thinking it behind the computer screen, though I doubt it. 

Then when I went to type her name into the search bar again, I came across another cousin with the same first name. The pictures were there, too. The kids look Jewish! 

They can't escape who they are, even if they don't know now—the younger kids couldn't know now, anyway (Could they? I doubt it. They wouldn't be told at least at their age—and they're triplets—and I don't think that their mother—who I should clarify is an in-law cousin—would let them use iPads, etc. at their age.). The older kids might not know (although the older one maybe attended the seder shel b'nai-mitzvah because he knows and wanted to see his heritage firsthand), and the adults are either ignorant and/or naive or just in plain denial.

The younger kids look Jewish because they look like their dad (I see his paternal grandmother, his kids' and my great-grandmother, in him.). They may also look Jewish because of their mom (I suspect that she may be Jewish. If she is Jewish, what a shanda that she's of a younger generation and feels like she has to hide it—after all, one of the younger generations is coming out with it. "Choose ye this day..." and "relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise elsewhere...." Why be afraid to stand with our people?)

The older kid can't escape that he's Jewish either way (As I recall, his great-great-granddad was also Andrew Rusnak—and he is certainly a descendant of him either way; that much I know. If my memory is correct, then we are third cousins and right in the same generation.). In any case, you can trace our lines right back to the Anusi Gyorgy "György Kvetkovits" Rusznák HaLevi of Kassa, Ausztria Magyarország (and he and his bashert Erzesbet Molnarová became Anusuim and moved to Aranyida once Szlovakia became a part of Ausztria. Keep in mind that the 1700s-1900s were one of the biggest time periods in which Ashkenazi Jews became Anusim. Even in supposedly-religiously-free Czech Austria, Fritz Kohn became Frederick Kerry, 63 years after the Hungarian Revolution and after Hungary was co-opted by Austria.). 

The adults like me can either be naive or in denial (and I was still a kid when I found out that we are Jewish; since, Biblically speaking, the bar-mitzvah and bat-mitzvah age is 20 years. I was 18 years, six months, and two days old when I posted a copy of Great-Great-Granddad Czarnecki's death certificate on Ancestry.com—I was almost one-and-a-half years short of being a bat-mitzvah, and I was able to confirm that I'm Jewish by seeking, enlisting, and finding)—and I know that those who were b'nai mitzvah before me could've known and been honest about it.

After all, the non-Photoshopped pictures don't lie. The draw toward our heritage does not lie. As Samuel told Saul according to one of the recently-read haftarot, "[G-d] is not a man, that He should repent." 

The records also do not lie, at least as far as the records that had honest information givers and honest transcribers. "Acquitted [to marry]", for example, is a damning thing to read on a marriage dispensation record, especially for apparently such good Slovakian and Czechoslovakian Catholics (which we weren't. We were Jews in Hungary and Austria Hungary.). Also, again, the non-Photoshopped pictures don't lie—just as the younger kids look like their dad's family, those Rusznaks of Kassa looked like the apparently-Czechoslovakian Andrew Rusnak (and as I've said in the past, that's when the "Relatives asked for money" lid got blown off the story—and I figured out that help was needed by Rusznaks instead of money by Foskos).

Those reminders and pauses will, by the way, somehow show up for the rest of my life or my time here in this age. I at least can say, "I am not ashamed of the Gospel," and "[T]here is nothing secret that will not be revealed". After all, I was led and I chose to say, "I'm a Jew. I'm a bat Anusim. They chose to persecute me in the Name of my Messiah, but they could not take my heritage away from me." I wonder how many of my family can and will be able to say that instead of offer up even excuses such as "That was then; this is now" and "Jewishness is religious, not ethnic" (which is the real meaning behind "Judaism is a religion, not a [race, nationality, etc.]"—as if the Judeans were never an ethnic or even ethnoreligious group). 

They, like me, can either choose to be like Esther and Paul (and Paul especially, for that he was Jewish was obvious and not obscurable as it was for Esther) or choose to be like forefathers such as Andrew Rusnak (and despite that rebringing up a matter will separate close friends, that the inquity will be felt down to the third and fourth generations remains).

With Vint Cerf's Warning, What Do We Do, Then?

Also, the Third Temple is being rebuilt; and you can't have the Third Temple in the Digital and Postmodern Age. After all, Rabbi Amy Scheinerman's contention that "the Hebrew Scriptures...do not speak to our lives today" (since "[s]ome institutions...don't speak", and neither, then, can the Scriptures) may seem true. That's why, then, there will be that Electric Grid Bust and Blowout: for example, one cannot keep a menorah burning 24-seven when a fire could easily effect wires and outlets to effect a bigger fire.

From http://www.age-end.com/Restoration%20of%20All%20Things/Menorah_files/image001.jpg

From http://image.slidesharecdn.com/sci1010chapter8-130823151701-phpapp02/95/sci-1010-chapter-8-34-638.jpg?cb=1377289150

Maybe, then part of the work of  The Temple Institute​ and/or other organizations could be somehow collecting hard copies of software, hardware, and other digital and electronic data.

"4 And these are the words that the LORD spoke concerning Israel and concerning Judah. 5 For thus saith the LORD: We have heard a voice of trembling, of fear, and not of peace. 6 Ask ye now, and see whether a man doth travail with child; wherefore do I see every man with his hands on his loins, as a woman in travail, and all faces are turned into paleness? 7 Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it; and it is a time of trouble unto Jacob, but out of it shall he be saved."

(From Jeremiah 30, JPS 1917​ Tanakh​ [תנ''ך])

As for the New Testament (The "H" in Tanakh, for "Hadashah"):

"21 For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be." (From Matthew 24, The NKJV Bible​)

From http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-shT-Y8KhByw/UAq_EVuLgQI/AAAAAAAAAi0/jR6mhfE1pEQ/s1600/PlotDiagram.png

Quite frankly, there'll be the climax of the Digital and Postmodern Age, then the Ezekiel War, then one more Climax (the Third Temple, etc.), and then the Tribulation. After that, the 1000 years, etc..




On the other hand, you could try "תנ''כח" or Tanakh Ko'ach—Bible of Power. Then again, you could just stick with תנ''ךTorah, Nevi'im, Ketuvim—and add "Hadashah" to make "Torah, Nevi'im, Ketuvim v'Chadashah."



  • Second PS: When I was Googling for images of the menorah with the verse about it burning perpetually (and I could not find one with the verse), I found an Anti-Semitic blog by Ora Yakovi "Yakovi's Op-Eds". In case it does not get removed (and please report it) or she starts a new blog, here is my response to her:


You are a classic Pseudo-Christian Anti Semite and self-hating Jew. First of all, you claim that one's maternal haplogroup proves one to be a Jew, and that Ashkenazi Jews are not Jews. By your logic, then, neither are you a Jew:

"She was born on 9/11 in Munich, Germany. In 1949, the "Zagorsky Family" came as DP refugees by ship to America after the Holocaust ended in 1945. Her parents were survivors of concentration camps near Dachau and in Siberia."

You were born in Ashkenaz. Also, Jewishness was primarily patrilineal in Biblical times. There were Matrilineal Jews, though very few. Furthermore, many Middle Eastern Y- and mt-, and some at-DNA markers have been found in Ashkenazi Jews. Furthermore, you are citing debunked "Dr." Elhaik and Anti-Semitic Eupedia. 

Therefore, you are dishonest when you state the following:

As an outspoken voice against anti-Israel/anti-Semitism/anti-Zionism whether in the religious or secular worlds, she now simply identifies herself as a daughter of Abraham's blessed covenant Hebrew "seed" and the "She'erit Yisrael (Remnant of Israel). (Zephaniah 3:13)

Ted Bauer, Insularity, and Industries—Including the Technology and News Industries

With dread about the electrical grid being struck and Luddite sentiment, Ted Bauer's article about the technology industry is relevant. After all, many industries indeed become like the technology industry—"insular", monopolized, hegemonic, nepotistic, and oligarchical. For example, where in the news-reporting world is one going to find a muckraker who's willing to expose many under-the-radar matters anymore? As has been noted in many different ways, many people want complacently-sensationalistic soundbites and graphics from "trusted" veteran reporters (whether or not they are actually trustworthy and willing to produce work that at least meets journalistic standards).

One example is with regard to PM Netanyahu, Congress, and the President of the United States. Very few reporters, analysts, commentators, and other news-connected figures would care to bring up, let alone report, that PM Netanyahu is actually violating Section Three of Article Two of the U.S. Constitution by addressing Congress without first having President Obama convene the House and/ore the Senator. When one commentator/analyst and one journalist (the former being Baruch Maoz and the latter being Geraldo Rivera) did bring that point up, they were sorely lambasted (Geraldo Rivera in particular and directly was lambasted. Anyone who concurred with Baruch Maoz was through whom the lambasters attempted to excoriate Pastor Maoz.).

The "report to support Netanyahu and Congress" line was expected to be toed. Never mind that the Constitution should have been brought into the reporting of PM Netanyahu's addressing Congress without being received by the President.

How Just A Simple Shower Can Change A Look

I am wearing makeup in neither picture.

New About.Me Profile Page (Not An Advertisement)

Somebody please correct me if I'm wrong, by the way, but I don't think that Montenegro is part of RoshGomer, or Togarmah. Also, Montenegro is friendly to 'Am v'Eretz Yisra'el (and I almost always check to see which countries are assigned which domains before I use a website-- for example, .ws is okay because it's "Western Samoa". .de is not okay because it is the main country of Gomer-- "Deutschland".

Anyway, my new About.Me page: http://www.about.me/nickidewbear.

I Think That My Computer's Literally Possessed

As I stated before, "My webcam worked when my friend came to check it after all, and then it stopped working again as soon as he left-- doesn't it figure?" Then tonight, a few White Supremacists came after me. Among a few other incidents, these two incidents prove to me that I am being persecuted-- as I stated, "The best that everyone can do right now is pray for my webcam to be able to connect to the internet again. I have a feeling that someone (not G-d, Jesus, or the Holy Spirit) is after me. After all, a couple of White Supremacists kind of proved that on one of my videos." 


I am being persecuted, and at least my webcam is possessed. If only I could exorcise my computer myself; but among other factors, my OCD/Anxiety and Depression kind of prevent that.

A Friend Is Scheduled To Look At the Webcam Issue Tomorrow, So...

We'll see what happens. The webcam is currently not connecting to the Internet for some reason. So, until my webcam can reconnect to the Internet, no Facebook or YouTube videos-- or I could go the long way and upload videos recorded in Windows Movie Maker via "USB Video Device" or (if it works) "ASUS Virtual Webcam". Meanwhile, my mom suggested GeekSquad, so I can be thankful that my friend offered to help before (as he explained) I was about to get ripped off.

The other option is praying for a miracle for the webcam and my computer so that my friend doesn't have to come right after his class to help me on my computer, and so that I could save him time while I get a Valentine's Day miracle (besides any that I can forsee, which is essentially no miracle besides the computer being fixed; though I'd prefer the "'catching away' of kallat Mashiach").
