Nafthaniel said other painful revelations have come to light during the investigation, such as a chain of letters during the occupation where Amsterdam city officials complained that "dog tax" revenue had plummeted, and demanded compensation from German authorities.

They never mentioned the reason for the decline in revenues: the dogs' Jewish owners had been deported.
AMSTERDAM (AP) — Charlotte van den Berg was a 20-year-old college student working part-time in Amsterdam's city archives when she and other interns came across a shocking find: letters from Jewish Holocaust survivors complaining that the city was forcing them to pay back taxes and late payment fines on property seized after they were deported to Nazi death camps.

Our beliefs matter in virtually every domain, in everything we do," Crum says. "How much is a mystery, but I don't think we've given enough credit to the role of our beliefs in determining our physiology, our reality. We have this very simple metabolic science: calories in, calories out.

People don't want to think that our beliefs have influence, too, she says. "But they do!
What we think about food may change how our bodies respond to it. Sip what you think is a rich milkshake, and your body acts as if you've had a fatty treat, even if it's really a lower-calorie drink.

"How can you get serious work when you're stumbling around," argued Weems, "trying to figure out whether or not I'm light or I'm golden, yellow, red, what that means? I can't get anything done if I'm trying to second guess your ass on a regular basis on what you might feel when I walk in the room." Whoa.

Right because little babies really don't DO anything until they're old enough to throw a ball or hold a bat, right? And because it's only the bankroll that will give your child the opportunities they'll need to be a success, right? Get a c-section before opening day.

Really, dudes? Reeeally???

The judge is not amused.  
Oscar Pistorius' emotional meltdown in court today - along with his crying and vomiting earlier in the trial - will likely have no effect on the judge's verdict, but could help Pistorius at his sentencing if he is found guilty, South African law experts said today.

When you describe another group as Godless, you can do anything to them.

I watched a Frontline piece on the genocide years ago, not very long after it happened, and I was absolutely devastated. I was sobbing and unable to sleep properly for days afterwards. I will never understand how anyone could ignore or forget about something so horrific. Human beings terrify me with their capacity for cruelty and callousness.

Too funny and so true. My husband thinks I'm so weird when I do that. I just want to be mentally in the right place when I talk to someone I know. :-)
