“The idea of monogamous same-sex relationships being acceptable to God emerges from an unwillingness to submit to the clear teaching of Scripture.” — Alistair Begg

2020.05.03 20:52 UnassuredCalvinist “The idea of monogamous same-sex relationships being acceptable to God emerges from an unwillingness to submit to the clear teaching of Scripture.” — Alistair Begg

“Liberals have a way of renaming things in order to make them acceptable. When former-President Clinton committed adultery he called it a “mistake.” Of course, it was sin. Everyone knows that the words “choice” and “fetus” have been used to justify murder. Recently, politically correct wordsmiths have coined the phrase “same-sex marriage.” From a biblical perspective, however, a proper name for this activity, is “legalized homosexuality.” Regardless of the attempt of two same-sex partners to justify “marrying” by declaring in a ceremony that they will be faithful to one another, God will neither condone nor accept their acts — even if the state does. Indeed, taking vows to remain in such a sinful relationship only aggravates the situation. Moreover, the church of the Lord Jesus Christ must never participate in nor promote the legalization of homosexuality. “Ministers” who do so either willingly or by coercion (should it ever come to that) thereby disqualify themselves as servants of Jesus Christ. In contrast, it is our duty and joy to affirm the biblical view of marriage — the union of one woman and one man. In the Bible, several facts are clear: It was God Himself who united a man and a woman in marriage (Gen. 2:22). Marriage, therefore, is a divine institution, not a human one (Matt. 19:6). Consequently, God, not man, has the right to define the terms of the institution.
And, as other articles in this edition of Tabletalk will make clear, homosexuality and lesbianism are not “natural” (Rom. 1:6, 27). When Paul uses the word phusis, to denote that which is against “nature,” he speaks of an act that is contrary to creation — contrary to the way in which God designed human beings to function sexually.
It is not as though Christians demean or oppose sexual activity. Quite to the contrary. When, within the bonds of godly marriage, people properly engage in sexual activities, the marriage bed is “unpolluted.” Indeed, in order to dispel false, ascetic notions, the writer of those words urges all Christians to “honor marriage” (Heb.13:4, The Christian Counselor’s New Testament [CCNT hereafter]). The distorted view that some people have of Christian teaching about sexuality would lead you to believe that we think the devil, not God, was the source of it. Quite to the contrary, God requires the fullest expression of loving sexual activity within marriage, an expression that may be properly initiated by either the husband or the wife (1 Cor. 7:4–5). And it is in that very passage Paul warns that failure to satisfy the sexual desires of one’s marriage partner may lead to temptation by Satan. Plainly, then, godly marriage must be encouraged in every way.
Marriage has many purposes, only one of which is procreation. That is a subject in itself. But, in this study, of greatest importance is the fact that marriage is to be a “completion” of one’s self — something that isn’t possible in a homosexual relationship. In providing a marriage partner for Adam, God said “I will make him a helper comparable to him” (Gen. 2:18). The Hebrew word translated “comparable” in the New King James Version means, literally, “that which approximates something else.” If you cut a grapefruit cleanly in two, the halves will fit exactly when placed in proper juxtaposition to one another. But if you halve another with a jagged cut neither of the two resulting pieces will fit with either of the halves of the previously sectioned fruit. It is only those halves that exactly approximate one another that make a suitable whole. It is this concept of shared wholeness that is inherent in the Genesis passage.
Men and women were designed to become “one flesh” (Gen. 2: 24). But there can be no oneness apart from a male and a female partner who approximate one another at every point. This “oneness” is not to be thought of merely as sexual union (though it certainly includes that). Rather, in Hebrew thought, the term “flesh” referred not only to the physical body, but also to the whole person. When Moses described the destruction of the entire human race (Noah and his family excepted), he described this catastrophe as “the end of all flesh” (Gen. 6: 13). Surely, he had reference to more than bodies when using this phrase. Rather, in a manner similar to our use of the word “everybody” (by which we refer to more than flesh and bones), he used the Hebrew word “flesh” to mean “person.” To become “one flesh,” then, is to become “one person.” Male and female marriage partners not only make an exact “fit” sexually, but their maleness and femaleness “fill out” or “complete” one another in every respect. The two constitute a “whole.” In a proper marriage, men have the opportunity to see the world through their wives’ feminine eyes, and women through their husband’s masculine eyes. My wife has brought lace curtains into my life; I have brought muddy boots into hers (sometimes messing up her curtains!). Same sex relationships lack entirely such expanded views of the world.
What of the single person? Must he or she forever lack the benefits of this married outlook? Perhaps, but God does compensate for it. When Jesus spoke of the indissolubility of marriage, except for adultery and desertion, the disciples (who, doubtless, knew Rabbi Hillel’s teaching that almost anything disagreeable might constitute grounds for divorce) said, “If that is the way it must be between a man and his wife, it would be better not to marry!” (Matt. 19:10). Now, of course, they all did anyway (1 Cor. 9:5). But, in answer to their hasty response, Jesus explained that not everyone has the capacity to live the single life, which He declared is only for “those to whom it has been given” (Matt. 19:11). Clearly, to compensate for the fact that “it is not good for man to be alone” (Gen. 3:18), God gifts such persons with a “capacity” for a special, fulfilling service, which He expects them to discharge (see Gen. 3:12b; 1 Cor. 7:7ff.).
Marriage, carried out in a Scriptural manner, affords great benefits. It is only necessary to read Ephesians 5:21–33 to understand how, in reflecting the relationship of Christ to His church, marriage can afford one of the deepest joys possible. In it is love, care, intimate fellowship, unfettered sex and so on. When God wants to explain the fullness of the future glory that we shall have in union with Christ, He writes: “Let us be happy and delighted, and we shall give Him the glory; the marriage of the Lamb has come and His bride has made herself ready. She was allowed to dress in fine linen that is bright and clean (for the fine linen is the righteous deeds of the saints). Then he said to me. Write this: ‘Happy are they who are called to the Lamb’s marriage supper” (Rev. 19:9 ccnt).
To describe that perfect, glorious event, notice that God uses the metaphor of a wedding. From this we should learn not only that marriage is good and holy, but that God intended it to be a wonderful blessing to mankind. How tragic to spoil and sully its character by using the word marriage to describe legalized homosexuality! In mercy, even though homosexuality is a sinful way of life, and not a genetic problem, Paul makes it clear that it is possible for a homosexual to be “washed” from his defilement through the saving grace of Jesus Christ. However, it is not only non-believers who are caught up in this sin that God will reprimand, but also those Christians who fail to exhibit and enjoy all that marriage can be. It is one thing to condemn homosexuality; it is another to live a married life that in itself condemns it by contrast. It is, therefore, our privilege not only to enter into the delights of this marvelous God-ordained institution, but by the way in which we honor it to exhibit the glory of God.
Principally, those who will read these words are believers in Christ. If, perchance, some who are not a part of His people are doing so, let me urge you to enter into the greatest relationship possible both for now and for eternity by becoming part of the bride of Christ. This bride is His church, which some day will be “glorious arrayed, not having spot or wrinkle, but rather … holy and without blemish” (Eph. 5:27CCNT). That even transcends sex (Matt. 22:30).”

Today, the Jews celebrate Passover....
MENORAH IS FOR THE JEWS🇮🇱.... NOT FOR THE IGLESIA NI CRISTO... 🕎➡️🇮🇹
by Bro. JC Ramolete and Bro. Prince Gil Delloso
Authors' note: This is a once-and-for-all article to prove that the Iglesia ni Cristo is misusing and misrepresenting the menorah as the symbol of their "Church" by presenting facts and real dialogue with the (racial) Jews and some members of the INC.
FIRST PART: PRESENTING THE FACTS
Last April 2019, we presented an article called "Iglesia ni Cristo and the Jewish Menorah" and it talked about how INC used the symbol of the menorah and claimed that it represented their Church. According to the INC, the menorah has "7 lampstands" (which are branched together) and they represented the 7 (locale) Churches according to Revelation 1: 10-11 and Revelation 1:20 yet the members of the INC admitted that Philippines was not mentioned in the Seven Churches according to the bible.
However, we did an extensive research on the history and facts of the menorah using Jewish sources and references and we found out that the menorah is part of the Jewish tradition by means of Hanukkah (which will be celebrated this December 25) and it is part of the Jewish practice to light the menorah in their homes and synagogues because according to the history of the Jewish people, Judas Maccabeus instituted the Hanukkah to remember the re-dedication of the temple after defeating Antiochus Epiphanes and the menorah was lighted in the temple of Solomon in the Old Testament:
HANUCAH: "Dedication." This festival is observed for eight days beginning the eve of the 25th of Kislev. Apart from slight additions in the orthodox ritual, it is principally observed in the synagog and the home by the lighting of candles set in an eight-branched Menorah, with an additional holder for the Shammas or candle with which the others are lighted. The custom is to light one candle the first evening, two the second; progressively increased each evening until eight are lit on the eighth night. The lighting is preceded by brief appropriate blessings and the singing afterwards of the popular hymn Ma'oz Tzur (Our Rock). Hanucah was instituted in 165 b.c.e. by Judas Maccabeus as a memorial of the purification and rededication of the sanctuary three years after it had been defiled by Antiochus Epiphanes. (Source: Encyclopedia of Jewish Knowledge, Article: HANUCAH)
MENORAH : The holy candelabrum. In Rabbinical Literature: The Talmud speaks only of the menorah made by Bezaleel for the Tabernacle in the time of Moses (Ex. 37: 17 et seq.), which was later placed in the Temple (Tosef., Sotah, xiii.. beginning), between the ten menorot made by Hiram for Solomon's Temple (I Kings vii. 49). Each of these menorot was one denarius in excess of the required weight ("kikkar ") of the Mosaic menorali (Men. 29a).
The Mosaic menorah, according to the Talmud, stood 18 "tefahim." ( 1 tefah = 4 inches), or 72 inches high, divided as follows: 3 tefahim for the tripod, including a "perah" (blossom in relief); 2 tefahim space; 1 tefah for a "gebia'" (cup or vase), "kaftor" (knob), and perah; 2 tefahim space: 1 tefah for a kaftor and branch on each side of tlie center which the wicks were placed turned toward the center lamp, which was known as "Ner ha-Ma'arabi" = " the Western Lamp ") because it was next to the branches on the east side (Rashi on Shab.22b). (Source: 1901 Jewish Encyclopedia, Article: MENORAH)
The menorah depicted on Titus' arch is probably a representation of one of Solomon's menorot, but not of the Mosaic menorah, which was concealed by the priests prior to the destruction of the First Temple and of which all trace has since disappeared. Symbolically the menorah represented the creation of the universe in seven days, the center light symbolizing the Sabbath. The seven branches are the seven continents of the earth and the seven heavens, guided by the light of God. (Source: 1901 Jewish Encyclopedia, Article: MENORAH)
HANUKKAH LAMP (also known as hanukkiyyah and Hanukkah menorah). The central ritual of the eight-day Festival of Hanukkah is the kindling of a lamp that has receptacles for eight lights, one for each night. A ninth receptacle, called the servitor or shammash, is often included in the lamp as well. The festival began in 164 B.C.E., when Judah Maccabee liberated the Jerusalem Temple from Greek control, resanctified it, and declared an eight-day celebration of “joy and gladness” (I Macc. 4:26–59). Yet, there is no record of exactly how Jews commemorated the holiday in the years following the re-dedication of the Temple. By the late first or early second century C.E., it was already the custom to kindle eight lights, as recorded in the Talmud. There was a disagreement between two important rabbinic schools in ancient Israel over how to light the lamps. Bet Shammai argued that one should light eight lights on the first night and decrease each night to one, while Bet Hillel, which soon prevailed, preferred to light one lamp on the first night and increase it to eight (Shab. 21b). (Source: Encyclopedia Judaica, Article: HANUKKAH LAMP)
After presenting these facts, members of the INC started doing ad hominem attacks and make frivoulous questions against the Catholic Church including the team (yours truly) that the information presented are from "fake sources" however, when we asked INC members if they observed Hanukkah like the Jews do until today, they admittedly said, "NO". Many fellow Catholics, who reacted and commented on the article, came to the aid of the team and rebuked INC members to "defend their symbol (the red-white-green flag with Jewish menorah) and stand their ground" but unfortunately, INC members were unable to do so. An INC member (named Adel Aguinaldo) actually commented and agreed that the menorah is the symbol of the Jewish people, as a RACE, and the religion of Judaism:
IGLESIA NI CRISTO:
"Sa gayon, naging isang pangunahing pwersa ang Hudaismo sa pagsasahugis ng daigdig. Ang kanilang naging simbolo ay ang Bituin ni David; sa kasalukuyan ang kanilang simbolo ay ang isang aranyang may pitong sanga, na tinatawag na menora."
Translation in English: "Thus, Judaism became a major force in shaping the world. Their symbol was the Star of David; at present their symbol is a seven-branch branch, called the menorah."
"Totoo naman ah, sa Hudio iyan. Bakit Hudio ba Kayo?"
Translation in English: "That's true, it's for the Jews. Why, are you Jews?"
HUMBLE APOLOGETICS - ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH:
"So therefore, menorah is part of Judaism. INC ay gaya-gaya sa Judaismo ngunit di naman kayo Hudyo. The racial Jews of the Old Testament gaya ng sinabi mo sa Lumang Tipan."
"Adel, huling huli ka na sa sinabi mo. Inamin mo na ang menorah ay sumisimbolo ng mga Hudyo. Menorah is indeed a symbol of Jewish identity."
Translation in English: "So, the menorah is part of Judaism. INC is mimicking Judaism but you are not Jewish. The racial Jews of the Old Testament as you said in the Old Testament."
"Adel, you're busted for what you said. You admit that the menorah symbolizes Jews. Menorah is indeed a symbol of Jewish identity."
SECOND PART: IGLESIA NI CRISTO, AT IT AGAIN...
INC got debunked using these facts about Hanukkah and menorah however a few days ago, the said "Church" made another post about menorah again and this time, many members of the INC were brainwashed and became very ignorant of the facts even though they knew that the menorah was used by Jews in lighting the temple. They still "believed" that the menorah represented the "7 Churches".
Last month, the team decided to have an open dialogue to a Facebook group page where most members are JEWS (whether an Orthodox, Hasidic, or Messianic Jew) and we decided to have a civilized discussion with the Jews regarding the menorah symbol used by Iglesia ni Cristo as a "Christian symbol" but not recognizing the Jews (as a race) and the religion of Judaism.
THIRD PART: HOW THE JEWS REACT...
We enumerated a few facts about Iglesia ni Cristo from our previous article-letter to the Jews (in a Facebook group page) in order to get their reaction or comments about the cult using the menorah symbol but not practicing Jewish customs and traditions:
'What's so strange about Iglesia ni Cristo is that the so-called "Church" used the Jewish menorah symbol on their flag (with red, white, and green colors) at the center yet some of their practices are opposed to that of the Jews as far as the Menorah is concerned.
These are the following:
  1. They don't celebrate Hanukkah (rededication of the Temple)
  2. They don't celebrate Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement)
  3. INC celebration of the Passover was strange: they celebrate it in the MORNING (like 6:00 AM)
  4. They don't observe Kosher.
  5. They don't light an actual menorah in their "kapilyas" (chapels). They don't even have synagogues.
  6. Most members of Iglesia ni Cristo are Gentiles and their "teachers" are called "ministers" instead of "rabbis".
  7. The leadership of this "Iglesia" is passed down from one generation to the next (Felix Manalo to Erano Manalo and then to Eduardo Manalo). In other words, through bloodline (sounds suspiciously like the Aaronic priesthood of the Torah or the Tanakh).'
Surprisingly, after posting our letter-article in a group page, a few respectful Jews reacted to the post which attracted us to have a dialogue with them. The following transcripts you are about to read are excerpts from our dialogue with the Jews (led by Bro. Prince Gil Delloso and Bro. JC Ramolete of Humble Apologetics Team):
Laudon Dean:
"Aleyha Hashalom. I'm not a Rabbi, But a Levite. Let me be forward about it. I don't see why you need this symbole. if you do not do and keep anything from Judaism. And even that, the Rabbis would not recognize it or would appreciate it. Another thing, This is not your symbol. The Menorah was lit at our Temple. And is recognized as our symbol. I for one, is complemented about all the groups that is so inspired by my people... But i don't like when they try to change us, or take from us, than blame us for "stealing" our own history. So to conclude, i wouldn't wish that they would use our symbols anymore."
Bro. Prince Gil Delloso:
"Laudon Dean, we are not in any manner affiliated with the Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church of Christ). We wrote the article and posted it here to get your view on the matter because we could not even figure out why they are using that symbol when they are not even Jews. They do not even celebrate any Jewish feast like the Hannukah, Yom Kippur, and they do not even observe the Kosher."
Bro. JC Ramolete:
"For the record, I don't wish to have an animosity with you and to clarify this: me and my partner, bro Prince Gil, are not affiliated with Iglesia ni Cristo."
"Rest assured. We come nicely to you."
"We researched about the history and origins of Hanukkah and yes, menorah is indeed the symbol of Judaism and Jewish people."
Laudon Dean:
"Prince Gil F. Delloso Well you got one. rest assured that you will get about the same response from the vast majority (if not everyone of them)."
"We know that this is our symbol...thanks lol"
Bro. JC Ramolete:
"However, there are some sects or cults who misused the symbol of the menorah. We understand your reaction that the menorah should not be used by Christians because the fact is, menorah is a symbol of Judaism."
"We agree with you. I'm sure the rabbis would not accept this action from a cult named Iglesia ni Cristo. They always claimed to be "Israel" however they don't celebrate Hanukkah like you Jews do."
Bro. Prince Gil Delloso:
"This sect, Laudon Dean, has been claiming that the symbol in their "flag" represents the "seven golden lampstands" in the book of Revelation in the New Testament. But the deeper we researched on the symbol, it is clear that it is the Jewish Menorah, your symbol."
Laudon Dean:
"Ok, thanks. Like i said, many claim this identity...google "black Israelites".. another delusional con group that is trying to steal our identity."
"Many people say many things.. but it does not mean nothing. We do not appreciate it. No person would appreciate if some other people would be re appropriating his identity in such a rude manner."
Aimee Moore:
"There are many groups of Christians who use our traditions and symbols, and even claim to be Israel. Obviously Israel does not and will not recognize them as Israel, but we don't give them much thought otherwise. Let them fool themselves if they wish."
Miriam Levinson:
"Yeah, they'll get tired of it and move on to something else. Fake claims to be Israel do not transmit from generation to generation."
Bro. Prince Gil Delloso:
"Laudon Dean , Aimee Moore and Miriam Levinson, thank you so much for your reply. We do look forward to more enlightening insights from you on the matter. On our part, we cannot just countenance the act of one cult in appropriating a symbol which does not rightly belong to it. We have high regard to you Jews."
Bro. JC Ramolete:
(to Aimee Moore) "Well said my friend. This is why we refute this 'Iglesia ni Cristo' of using the menorah which, in fact, they never even celebrate Hanukkah like you do."
(to Laudon Dean, Aimee Moore, Miriam Levinson) "Thank you for your responses. We wish to hear more from you. Me and bro Prince Gil F. Delloso do not allow sects or cults like Iglesia ni Cristo to claim which is not theirs in the beginning.
After having a respectful dialogue with some of the Jews, Humble Apologetics team decided to get the opinion of the rabbis from a group page however the team wasn't able to have a dialogue with them (rabbis). Nevertheless, a source reference confirms about the menorah being the symbol of Judaism and the Jewish people as a race as said by the Jews themselves:
MENORAH - the seven-branched candelabrum that once stood in the Holy Temple, is the most enduring symbol of Judaism, tracing its origins back to the Mishkan, the portable sanctuary in the wilderness. More than any other Jewish symbol, it represents the continuity of the tradition, linking the generations from Moses to our own day.
Hanukkah menorahs sometimes carry other symbolic imagery besides the light symbolizing the ancient miracle: the Lion of Judah, representing both the Jewish People and Judah Maccabee; Judith, whose story parallels that of Hanukkah; the hamsa, to ward off evil spirits; eagles, deer, and other animals; Jerusalem or the Temple; biblical, classical, or decorative motifs. Any shape is ritually acceptable as long as the eight individual lights are on the same level and do not seem to merge into a single flame.
Signifies: AFFIRMATION, ANTIDEMONIC, CONTINUITY, DIVINE LIGHT, DIVINE PROTECTION, EXILE, JEWISH PEOPLE, JUDAISM, LIFE, MIRACULOUSNESS, REBIRTH, SURVIVAL
(Source: The Encyclopedia of Jewish Symbols by Frankel and Teusch)
CONCLUSION:
Based on the Jewish references and sources and dialogue with the Jews, we have come to the very conclusion that the menorah is indeed the symbol of the religion of Judaism and the Jewish people because of the Hanukkah tradition. Catholics of Humble Apologetics team also agreed with the Jews about one thing: Iglesia ni Cristo is stealing the meaning symbol which is not theirs to begin with by claiming to be "Israel" but the fact is: majority of the members of Iglesia ni Cristo are Gentiles (GOYS in derogative term) and therefore, Catholics and Jews don't recognize the menorah as the symbol of the Church as INC claims in their flags. The Jews, as a race, never appreciated what INC has done through stealing symbols and history of the Jews using the menorah.
Isn't it amazing how Iglesia ni Cristo always preaches Exodus 20:4 to Catholics yet they VIOLATED the other commandments of God given to Moses by stealing symbols from the Jewish people without asking permission (or even giving credit) from the Jews:
"You must not steal" (Exodus 20:15)
"You must not covet your neighbor’s house. You must not covet your neighbor’s wife, male or female servant, ox or donkey, or anything else that belongs to your neighbor.” (Exodus 20:17)
We challenge INC to prove that the menorah is the symbol of the Christian Church, Christianity, and Christians (as they claimed to be "Israel") using their references and to have a dialogue with the Jews (about the menorah) yet they still haven't answered our questions as mentioned in the previous article:
  1. Where did Felix Manalo copy the Jewish menorah symbol?
  2. If he (Felix Manalo) DID copy the Jewish menorah symbol, did he study the religion of Judaism while he was "studying" other religions in America?
  3. If INC doesn't celebrate Christmas and always attacks the December 25th holiday of the year, why don't they celebrate Hanukkah like the Jews do?
  4. If the Jewish menorah is indeed the symbol of RACIAL identity of the Jews, do INC members consider themselves as "Jews" (because of the menorah symbol on their flags)? If they consider themselves as "Jews", why don't they perform the re-dedication of the Temple (like Manalo's "Temple" in Diliman, Quezon City) like the Jews do?
The Jews of Judaism (based on Pharisaim) today may be our enemies of the Gospel because they rejected our Adonai Yeshua, the true Mashiach of the Jews and Gentiles, as St. Paul preaches (Romans 11:28) however they are loved for the sake of their patriarchs and our Lord Jesus taught to love our enemies (even the Jews who are our enemies of the Gospel) as Jesus Himself prayed for them on the cross.
"You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven." (Matthew 5: 44-45)
"But to you who are listening I say: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you." (Luke 6: 27-28)
Therefore, the lampstands in Revelation 1: 10-11 and Revelation 1:20 are not lamps representing the menorah. The lamps surrounded Christ according the Revelation 1:13 (from Greek word 'mesos' meaning in the midst of or in the middle). If it is the menorah, Christ would have stood or risen at the center of the candelabra however "in the midst" means He (Christ) was surrounded by the lampstands.
We would like to give an unsolicited advice for Iglesia ni Cristo members: Convert yourselves to Judaism (based on Pharisaic teaching).
Therefore, menorah is for the JEWS, as a race, and the religion of JUDAISM... NOT Iglesia ni Cristo.

Where did the idea for BG Strategic Advisors come from?

As I was building my first company, 3PLex, I got called on by a lot of investment bankers, venture capital firms, and private equity firms. I was struck by the fact that most of them didn’t really seem to understand logistics and supply chain. So I thought, “Why not start a merchant bank focused on logistics?” In 2002, I started BG Strategic Advisors. In the beginning, I ran it from my apartment in Cambridge. Since we didn’t have an office yet, we held meetings in the Charles Hotel. It was a scrappy startup, just like 3PLex, but this time I self-funded it and we were profitable from year one!
Over the course of time, we had the privilege of working with a lot of terrific companies, including NFI, GENCO, UPS, Kuehne & Nagel, New Breed, and others. We worked on over 50 deals. Then, I eventually decided that I wanted to get back into building companies, as opposed to just advising them. I realized that I could be a founder, or I could invest in businesses that others had founded. The latter was more scalable. So I started investing in logistics, supply chain, and technology companies. To do so, I established Cambridge Capital. I started by putting my money where my mouth is, and investing my own capital first. Over time we’ve brought in partners.
Over the last decade, I’ve had the good fortune to invest in more terrific companies. XPO was founded by Brad Jacobs. Its first platform, Express-1, was a small company that Brad built through organic growth and acquisitions. It’s now a publicly-traded company with an enterprise value of more than $10 billion. Grand Junction was a startup founded by Rob Howard. He had
the idea of building a technology platform to help retailers give their customers a better last- mile solution. Target ended up buying the company. These are just two examples.
Our goal is to help companies by bringing more than money. We work hard to bring expertise to our companies where we can, leveraging our industry knowledge, technology experience, networks of talented executives, access to potential customers, and more.

What does your typical day look like and how do you make it productive?

On most days, I wake up at 6am. I meditate for 5 minutes to clear my mind then spend 10 minutes scanning my inbox and responding to the most urgent/important issues. I work out for 30-60 minutes, typically either swimming/biking/running. And I start work with our daily huddle at 8:45am, inspired by Verne Harnish’s “Rockefeller Habits” model.
Over the course of the day, I schedule as much as possible. That makes it easier to focus visually on what I have to do. Also, it allows me to control my time allocations to match my priorities.
I also rely heavily on email. Since I can read and write faster than I can talk, it’s more efficient. I try to follow the “Getting Things Done” strategy. Touch emails once (reply, forward, or delete, with a clear action). Make the subject lines clear. Process ruthlessly!
When allocating my time, I try to focus on three questions:
Is it important?
Does it require my involvement, or can someone else handle it? Does it need action now, or can it wait?

How do you bring ideas to life?

I read a lot. I try to read a book a week. The last book I read was “Red Notice” by Bill Browder. It tells the story of how a young strategy consultant discovered the brave new world of Eastern European privatizations in the 1990s and ended up building the biggest investment firm in Russia. It was inspiring to see how Browder went to Poland first and Russia second, with an open mind and a readiness to apply what he learned in the U.S. in a new market where the rules were different. It was also depressing to see how the Russian oligarchs and a corrupt bureaucracy fought him, ultimately driving him out of the country and murdering his lawyer. But it was uplifting to see Browder pivot into the next chapter of his life, as a human rights activist who championed the Magnitsky Act and continues to fight for justice today.
“Red Notice” helped me generate ideas for looking in emerging markets for hidden jewels in the logistics world. I’m working on one right now!

What’s one trend that excites you?

I am very excited about the intersection of transportation and technology. That’s been a major theme throughout my career. One big driver is ACES: Autonomous, Connected, Electric, and Sharing economy. We are seeing lots of fantastic businesses emerging out of these technologies. For instance, Grand Junction succeeded by connecting drivers with retailers through a technology platform and a sharing economy model. Bringg and DeliveryCircle have similar advantages, albeit in different but complementary areas.
I believe electric vehicles will come to dominate not just passenger cars, but also trucking. Over the next decade, we will see a massive shift.

What is one habit of yours that makes you more productive as an entrepreneur?

I try to abide by the one-touch rule. When I get an email, I try to respond in a way that gets to closure. You can lose a lot of time with email back-and-forth chains. If possible, I try to give a clear and quick answer: yes, no, or depends on X. If you can reduce your touches, you can spend your time more productively!

What advice would you give your younger self?

Invest in the things that make you better. Reading has a multiplier effect. So does exercise, because it makes you better in other dimensions. And so does surrounding yourself with A+ people, in all areas of life. They can challenge you and make you better!

Tell us something that’s true that almost nobody agrees with you on.

Self-driving trucks will dominate the industry within a decade. Everyone talks about self-driving cars, but it’s already happening in trucks. Komatsu can run trucks in the mines of Australia without drivers. Driverless forklifts are already appearing in warehouses. People are petrified about the idea of a runaway truck driven by a machine that misses an important action. But this isn’t the Windows “Blue Screen of Death.” Computer-powered trucks are going through extremely rigorous testing, and will soon be ready for the road.
Also, while it’s true that self-driving trucks aren’t perfect, it is important to note that neither are humans. Tragically, 50,000 people a year die from car and truck accidents. Almost all of those fatalities are caused by human error. If machines can cut that by 90%, we might still have 5,000 fatalities a year. That would be terrible, but far better than the status quo.
Self-driving trucks can be implemented more effectively than self-driving cars, because they can be managed by companies. In sum, the driverless future will come to trucks first.

As an entrepreneur, what is the one thing you do over and over and recommend everyone else do?

Follow through. People value you when they know they can count on you. Always do what you say, so people know your word is meaningful. I can’t stress that enough.
When I started BG Strategic Advisors, our first client was a company called Air-Road Express. The CEO asked us to sell their company. We put together a plan and timetable. It called for getting the deal done in 4 months. In hindsight, this was a mistake. Your average M&A assignment often takes 6-9 months from start to finish. But we made a commitment, and we had to figure out how to deliver on it. There were a lot of late nights, early mornings, interrupted family dinners, and last-minute trips. But it all worked out. In the end, we not only got it done in 4 months, but we also exceeded the CEO’s value expectations.
That CEO, in turn, became a vital reference for our little company as we started to grow. It all revolved around demonstrating that we did what we said, and earning trust.

What is one strategy that has helped you grow your business?

My strategy has been to be narrowly focused. In our first decade, we were strictly focused on transportation, logistics, and supply chain technology. We could have taken on many more clients, but we decided that being known in our field would pay dividends down the road.
HBS Professor Michael Porter liked to say that strategy is about saying no. If you don’t say no often enough, then you spread yourself too thin. We try to maintain that dictum. Over time, as we’ve expanded our firm, our scope has expanded a little. But we still try to keep our focus tight.

What is one failure you had as an entrepreneur, and how did you overcome it?

I’ve had lots of failures! But the failures are what make you better, assuming you learn from them.
When I started 3PLex, we had a great idea. But we tried to do too much too quickly. We started with the idea of building a TMS to automate logistics. Then we added a combinatoric engine to enable companies to bid on bundles of lanes. And we also added a drayage management system. Three products was too much for one startup. We burned through a lot of money before we figured that out. I wish we had figured it out much sooner.
In the end, ironically, the product that we spent the least time and money on, in drayage, was the one that Maersk wanted.
The lesson was to listen to your customers, and ruthlessly simplify to focus on what matters.

What is one business idea that you’re willing to give away to our readers?

Think about how you can combine new technologies to augment classic business models.
For instance, every retailer in the world is trying to improve their last-mile solution to compete with Amazon. If they fail in this one area, they could fail outright. There is a fortune awaiting the company that figures out how best to do this.
Can you use drones, or warehouse automation, or other technology, to deliver a solution that is equal or better than Amazon Prime? If you can figure that out, you have a tremendous opportunity.

What is the best $100 you recently spent? What and why?

I bought a Fitbit for my kids on Tuesday. They are wonderful children, but they also love reading (or acting, singing, and watching) more than exercising. For the last three days, they have been running through the house and in the backyard, counting their steps!
The old saying is true: What gets measured gets done!

What is one piece of software or a web service that helps you be productive?

We all use email. But one thing I’ve found particularly helpful was a typing class I took when I was in middle school. Being able to type fast might have seemed like a job for a secretary at
one point. Today, it’s a competitive advantage for anyone who is in business.

What is the one book that you recommend our community should read and why?

“Lend Me Your Ears” by William Safire. It is a collection of the most inspirational speeches in world history.
Start with the uplifting words from Shakespeare’s Marc Antony that inspired Safire’s title, “Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears; I come to bury Caesar, not to praise him.” You can think of this speech as great literature, which it is. You can also think of it as enjoyable to read, which it also is. But as an entrepreneur, you can consider these words the foundation for a persuasive call to action.
Any great leader, whether in politics, business, or elsewhere, should have these powerful communication tools at his or her disposal.

What is your favorite quote?

In the “Sayings of the Fathers,” also known as the “Pirkei Avot,” Hillel said this: “When a man is needed and there is no man, strive to be that man.” Putting gender neutrality aside, this quote captures the essence of leadership to me.
What Hillel is saying is this: when you find yourself in a situation that calls for action, and you see nobody else stepping up to take on that responsibility, then the choice lies with you. Will you take the reins, or will you let the opportunity pass?
I believe great leaders, great business people, and great human beings all find ways to live in accordance with this moral precept. Think about Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Sharansky, and others in activism. And think about Jobs, Gates, Musk, and others in entrepreneurship. In all cases, great leaders saw a need and realized that it was up to them to address it. Isn’t that what it’s all about?

2019.12.16 06:40 goofygoober10000 A friend said ex dumped me because I wasn't a virgin

A while ago I got dumped by a guy who I dated for a few months, though heartbroken I moved on and started to feel better, hell I even recently started going out with a sweet guy I meet at my schools, Hillel. But during my break up I had a friend who said some very damaging and poisonous things, things that have caused me to distance myself from her for my own mental wellbeing. My ex, was in school to study to be a Rabbi something at the time I mentioned once in passing to her, when he and I broke up she bluntly stated to me it was because I wasn't pure and that's why he dumped me. When I asked why she'd say something so damaging, she said it was obvious because he was studying to be a Rabbi, something also equally offensive to me as a Jewish woman.
I felt hurt and like I was being treated like a piece of meat by my friend, in the past she's shamed how I dress and me for having had over one sexual partner. Though she has in the past been a good friend, I feel very hurt by her and wish to limit contact with her. As I can't trust her not to say hurtful things about how I dress or my sexual activity.

2019.09.01 13:44 rayrayraybies Cat names for littermates?

My partner and I just adopted two nearly-identical cats, white with gray. They come with adorable names: Robert and Moses, like the famous sociopathic city planner. It's cute but Robert is my brother's name.
Robert has a very chill but affectionate personality. He's playful and generally unruffled. He has a little white peak on his forehead shaped like an A.
Moses is super meek and shy, but more introverted than skittish. His little white peak is a M.
Our top contender right now is Aaron and Moses. My partner's hesitation is that sounds too religious.
I'm open to any and all votes or suggestions!
Names to pair with Moses:
Aaron
Koresh
David
Marduk
Emil
Eames

Renaming both:
Chico and Harpo
Salt and Pepper
Eames and Emil
Bingley and Darcy
Family or fam pet names that are out: Robert Hillel Sim James T. Kirk Victor Jacob/Yaacov

2018.10.21 13:27 JeffB1517 What a BDS success on a campus looks like, Concordia

This post is meant as a reference post on a 2002 incident which is worth knowing about. It demonstrates many of the aspects that continue to play out 16 years later. In particular how difficult it is to distinguish anti-Zionism from Antisemitism in practice. Concordia is a University in Canada (https://www.concordia.ca/). The student body is very liberal and those people who voted in student elections more political than the average student so hardcore leftwing student governments were the norm at Concordia. At the start of the 2nd intifada a very leftwing student government was elected on a platform of political activism. The particular student government in 2002 had both a Palestinian political activist and a JVP type (though again he's Canadian so not literally a JVPer). Naturally there was a focus on the I/P conflict. It should be noted this was prior to the formal BDS movement so this government identified under the older moniker of Palestinian Solidarity not BDS. Netanyahu at that point out of power was scheduled to speak at the University so the people in the student government organized a riot which effectively prevented the speech (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Concordia_University_Netanyahu_riot).
The student government underwent intense criticism but viewed the success in shutting down the speech from a former world leader and the consequent publicity and controversy as a sign of tremendous success. The student government faced Hillel members on the campus feeding the external press negative quotes. Consequently there was a lot of tension between Hillel and the student government. The Jewish students were in physical danger during the riot and the police had kept them trapped in the hall for hours until they could safely escort them out. The Jewish community at Concordia was used to Israel being demonized but disrupting a Jewish event was a direct attack on them. Prior to the riot they had believed the propaganda that anti-Zionism and antisemitism were distinct and thus hadn't anticipated this sort of activism being directed against them. Being confronted with the threat of violence and property damage caused to the Jewish community on campus to react and become more engaged on the I/P issue. The riot had been polarizing.
The specific counter activism that Hillel employed was quite creative but it is worth noting that the poor handling of counter activism demonstrates one of the problems BDSers would face were they to become more substantial in the USA. Most of the typical leftwing groups are practiced in activism. They are not used to however facing activism directed at them. When they do they often handle it badly. As expected the Concordia student government didn't handle it well. This has continued through the BDS struggles, and one could pick other examples though Concordia being one of the first is a classic. There are various organizations that recruit for the IDF among diaspora Jews. Hillel at their table in the student union had fliers for one such group (http://www.mahal-idf-volunteers.org/), specifically to provoke a reaction. They got it. The members of the student government believing this recruitment to be a violation of Canadian law. Seeing the opportunity they called an emergency student government meeting and banned Hillel from campus.
This of course set off a firestorm which the student government appears not to have anticipated. First off they had been incorrect in their understanding of Canadian law. Moreover as a governmental agency they can't ban religious groups even if they did violate the law. The student government wanted a negotiated face saving compromise where Hillel agreed not to engage in Zionism ... but Hillel would have none of that. The Jews in the student government understood where this was going and wanted to back down, the Palestinians did not and demanded solidarity. So the ban on Hillel remained in place. This essentially drew almost all Jewish students into the fight. Jewish students began wearing Jewish religious symbols in symbolic defiance of the student government (Hillel not Judaism had been banned so this wasn't technically defying the resolution but was seen as such): male Jewish students who normally don't wear a kippah started wearing them, female students star of david necklaces... Hillel then quickly organized a well attended Jewish religious event on campus. The student government showed up to enforce the ban and the Jewish students essentially told them they would need to break up religious ceremony violently they weren't going to leave voluntarily. The campus police were called and they told the student government to pound sand the campus police weren't going to break up a peaceful religious gathering of students.
Students on campus who hadn't previously cared about the I/P debate or even supported the anti-Netanyahu riot were not nearly so tolerant of a student government trying to shutdown a Jewish religious event. The Hillel students cooperated with campus conservatives and an essentially moderate Republican student government was elected with much higher participation than normal on a platform of keeping the student government focused on Concordia not world politics. That sort of government winning an election was a clear repudiation of the Palestinian Solidarity government and was seen as such by both sides. The Concordia administration wanted to repudiate the actions of the previous student government and established a permanent Israeli studies institute with close ties to an Israeli office complex in Tel Aviv it is partnered with (https://www.concordia.ca/artsci/research/azrieli-institute.html).
So in total the effect of the solidarity activism was: * To shutdown a mostly symbolic speech * To politicize the Jewish students and make them firmly supportive of the Zionist right when previously they had non-political and much more nuanced in their support. * To get the very leftwing students to strongly repudiate the Palestinian solidarity movement. * To politicize the administration and make them firmly pro-Israel when previously they had been nuanced. * To establish permanent ties between the University and Israel so that students and research projects now regularly flow back and forth between Israel and Concordia in an institutionally supported and encouraged way.
I'll end with a few links. * A balanced documentary film called Discordia about the entire year including interviews with many of the leaders of the student government and the Hillel counter activism, told mostly from the point of view of the student government: https://www.nfb.ca/film/discordia/ .

2018.09.21 02:06 veddy_interesting 59 Trump connections to Russia, as detailed in "House of Trump, House of Putin"

IMPORTANT:
You can and should buy Craig Unger's “House of Trump, House of Putin: The Untold Story of Donald Trump and the Russian Mafia” excellent book. This post is sourced from it.
Trump has repeatedly said he has nothing to do with Russia. Here are fifty-nine Trump connections to Russia, as detailed by Craig Unger in “House of Trump, House of Putin: The Untold Story of Donald Trump and the Russian Mafia”. This list can be useful when people claim there is no connection between Trump and Russia.
1. Roman Abramovich Putin confidant/billionaire who, along with fellow oligarch Lev Leviev, created the Putin-approved Federation of Jewish Communities of Russia under the leadership of Chabad rabbi Berel Lazar, aka “Putin’s rabbi.” Ivanka Trump is close to Abramovich’s ex-wife, Dasha Zhukova, and has taken several trips with the Abramoviches, including a trip to Russia in 2014 as their guest.
2. Aras Agalarov A billionaire Russian real estate developer who is close to Putin, Agalarov partnered with Trump in bringing the Miss Universe pageant to Moscow and was a serious potential partner behind the never-built Trump Tower Moscow. Agalarov remained in contact with Trump after Miss Universe and during the 2016 presidential campaign.
3. Emin Agalarov Son of Aras Agalarov, pop singer Emin performed at the 2013 Miss Universe pageant, got Donald Trump to appear in one of his music videos, and was a key figure in arranging the infamous June 2016 meetings in Trump Tower between Russian operatives and top Trump associates.
4. Evsei Agron The first alleged boss of the Russian Mafia in Brighton Beach, Agron came to New York in 1975 and ran his crime gang out of Brooklyn’s El Caribe Country Club, which was owned by Dr. Morton Levine and his family, including nephew Michael Cohen, Trump’s lawyer.
5. Rinat Akhmetshin Former Soviet counterintelligence officer who became a K Street lobbyist working to end sanctions. Akhmetshin attended the Trump Tower meeting with Donald Trump Jr., Paul Manafort, and others in June 2016 at which a Russian lawyer promised to provide opposition research on Hillary Clinton. According to the New York Times, Akhmetshin had also worked in Kiev with Konstantin Kilimnik, an aide to Paul Manafort who had a background in Russian intelligence.
6. Tevfik Arif One of the billionaire oligarchs behind the Bayrock Group, the real estate development company, whose offices were in Trump Tower. Prior to the dissolution of the Soviet Union, Arif worked for the KGB-linked Ministry of Commerce and Trade.
7. Marat Balagula Evsei Agron’s alleged successor as head of the Brighton Beach Mafia, Balagula was suspected of having ordered the hit on Agron, but was never charged and moved into Agron’s former office in the El Caribe Country Club, which was still owned by Michael Cohen and his uncle. Balagula partnered with David Bogatin, who had previously purchased five apartments in Trump Tower.
8. Boris Birshtein Russian-Canadian who founded Seabeco SA with KGB operatives and under KGB guidelines to set up corporations abroad. Worked with son-in-law Alex Shnaider (who later built Trump Tower in Toronto) and two-thirds of the Eurasian Natural Resources Corporation’s Trio (Patokh Chodiev and Alexander Mashkevich). Birshtein hosted the famous 1995 summit meeting in Tel Aviv, at which Semion Mogilevich was allotted an enormous share of the Ukraine energy trade.
9. David Bogatin One of the pioneers behind the Red Daisy gas tax scam, Bogatin bought five apartments in Trump Tower for $6 million in 1984, in the process becoming the first alleged Russian mobster to launder money through Trump Tower. Donald Trump personally sold the apartments to Bogatin.
10. Jacob Bogatin Key member of the Mogilevich Russian organized crime family who was indicted for his involvement in Mogilevich’s YBM Magnex stock scam. Brother of David Bogatin.
11. Oleg Boyko Russian oligarch who was close to Boris Yeltsin and who purchased a Trump Tower apartment in 1994, which he later sold to Vadim Trincher.
12. Mikhail Chernoy Billionaire oligarch who ran Trans-World Group with his brother, Lev; gained control of Russia’s aluminum industry; and acquired a huge stake in processing and distributing other metals and petroleum products. Chernoy allegedly defrauded the Russian central bank of more than $100 million, and is believed by the FBI to be a major Russian crime figure. In the nineties, Chernoy worked with the Chodiev Group. Chernoy also worked with Semyon Kislin, who had a long relationship with Trump and who partnered with Tamir Sapir, a financier of Trump SoHo.
13. Vitaly Churkin Russian ambassador to the UN. Churkin met Trump in 1986 and along with Yuri Dubinin set up the trip Trump took to Moscow in 1987. Churkin died in 2017 in New York.
14. Michael Cohen Donald Trump’s personal lawyer. Cohen and his extended family, through his uncle, owned El Caribe Country Club in Brooklyn, which provided an alleged base of operations for the Russian Mafia in Brooklyn. In 1999, Cohen received a mysterious check for $350,000 that reportedly was intended for one of the leaders of the Izmaylovskaya Organized Crime Group. Both Cohen and his brother Bryan married Ukrainian women, and Bryan’s father-in-law, Alex Oronov, partnered with Viktor Topolov, an oligarch who employed three executives who were allegedly part of the Russian Mafia, including one enforcer who was tied to Mogilevich and admitted to taking part in at least twenty murders.
15. Oleg Deripaska Russian oligarch and founder and owner of Basic Element, a huge diversified industrial group. Close to Putin. Paid Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort $10 million per year to advance Putin’s global agenda. Manafort owed Deripaska nearly $19 million after a failed business deal, but that debt was said to have been forgiven after Manafort offered Deripaska secret briefings on the Trump campaign. Has admitted that, at times, he has had to collaborate with suspected mobsters because he had no choice but to work with such people. Also employed David Geovanis, who in 1996 helped arrange meetings for Trump in Moscow with key Russian figures regarding a potential Trump Tower there.
16. Natalia Dubinina Daughter of Yuri Dubinin who was already living in New York as part of the Soviet delegation to the UN when her father became Soviet ambassador to the UN in March 1986. Stated that there was a determined effort by the Soviet government to seek out Trump. At a time when KGB chief Vladimir Kryuchkov had been complaining about the failure to recruit enough American agents, Dubinina played a key role in setting up a meeting with Trump and encouraging him to come to Moscow.
17. Yuri Dubinin As Soviet ambassador to the UN, Dubinin met Trump and invited him to Moscow in 1987. The trip was arranged by Intourist, which was essentially a branch of the KGB whose job was to spy on high-profile tourists. As a result, Trump’s entire visit, including his hotel stay, would have been subject to surveillance by the KGB.6 Dubinin later became Soviet ambassador to the US.
18. Dmitry Firtash Ukrainian oligarch who is alleged to have partnered with and is considered a front man for Semion Mogilevich in “opaque intermediary companies” that siphoned off billions of dollars from the Ukraine energy trade. Supporter of the pro-Putin Party of Regions, which backs such policies. Also partnered with Paul Manafort on an abortive deal involving New York’s Drake Hotel.
19. Michael “MISHA” Flynn Foreign policy adviser to Trump during the campaign who later became Trump’s short-lived national security adviser. Met with GRU chief Igor Sergun in Moscow in 20137 and gave a speech to new hires at GRU headquarters. Was paid $45,000 by RT for a speech in late 2015, and was seated near Putin at an RT dinner.
20.Rick Gates When Paul Manafort became Trump’s campaign manager, Gates, as Manafort’s partner, became the campaign’s number two, after having worked closely with Manafort for pro-Putin forces in Ukraine. In 2017, Gates was charged with conspiracy against the United States, making false statements, money laundering, and failing to register as a foreign agent as required by the Foreign Agents Registration Act. In 2018, Gates pleaded guilty to one count of making false statements and one count of conspiracy against the United States.
21. David Geovanis As head of real estate for a subsidiary of the Brooke Group,* Geovanis arranged meetings for Trump during his 1996 Moscow trip to explore building Trump Tower Moscow. Later went to work for Oleg Deripaska’s Basic Element.
22. Rob Goldstone Music promoter who represents Emin Agalarov. Helped arrange the infamous Trump Tower meeting in June 2016 in which representatives of the Russian government offered the Trump campaign “dirt” on Hillary Clinton. Extended an invitation to Trump in the summer of 2015 to a party for Agalarov with the possibility of meeting Putin. Attended Trump’s 2013 Miss Universe pageant.
23. Anatoly Golubchik Sentenced to five years in prison in 2014 for his role in the $100 million gambling ring being run out of Trump Tower.8 Owned a condo in Trump International Beach Resort and appeared in the Panama Papers as part of a shell company that has the same corporate director as a company owned by Mogilevich and ex-wife, Galina Telesh.
24. Vyacheslav “Yaponchik” Ivankov One of the last of the old-time vory, Ivankov took over the Brighton Beach Mafia in 1992 and became one of the most powerful mobsters in the US. Connected to Putin through Leonid Usvyatsov, Putin’s judo coach who happened to be a mobster. Owned 25 percent stake in Mogilevich’s company Arbat. Mogilevich flew into New York on occasion to meet with Ivankov. FBI agents looked all over Brooklyn for Ivankov—only to find that he lived in Trump Tower. Ivankov also made frequent visits to Trump’s Taj Mahal casino in Atlantic City.
25. Irakly Kaveladze Longtime US-based associate of Aras Agalarov’s real estate firm, the Crocus Group, Kaveladze attended the June 2016 meeting in Trump Tower among Donald Trump Jr., Paul Manafort, Jared Kushner, and the Russians. At one point, he claimed he’d attended as a translator, but another translator was present. In truth, he was there as a representative of the Agalarovs. In the nineties Kaveladze’s company International Business Creations established more than two thousand Delaware-based shell companies and laundered more than $1.4 billion in cash.
26. Viktor Khrapunov A former Kazakh energy minister and ex-mayor of Almaty, the biggest city in Kazakhstan, Khrapunov was charged with conspiring to systematically steal billions of dollars of public assets and laundering the money through shell companies, including three corresponding to apartments in Trump SoHo. Khrapunov has denied the allegations.
27. Konstantin Kilimnik Started working for Paul Manafort in 2005 when Manafort was representing Ukrainian oligarch Rinat Akhmetov, a gig that morphed into a long-term contract with Viktor Yanukovych, the Kremlin-aligned hard-liner who became president of Ukraine. Studied at the First Department of the Moscow Military Red-Banner Institute of the Ministry of Defense of the USSR, which trained interpreters for the Russian military intelligence agency.10 Made two trips to meet with Manafort during the 2016 presidential election regarding the Trump campaign, and the possibility that Manafort would give briefings to Oleg Deripaska. Also opened a consulting firm in 2015 that had ties to Cambridge Analytica, the data firm that helped elect Trump.
28. Semyon “Sam” Kislin In the late seventies, Trump bought hundreds of television sets for the Commodore Hotel (now the Grand Hyatt) from Kislin, a Ukrainian immigrant who became a billionaire. Partnered with Tamir Sapir, whose Sapir Organization worked with Bayrock and financed Trump SoHo. As a commodities trader, Kislin was tied to Mikhail and Lev Chernoy and, according to the FBI, to Vyacheslav Ivankov’s gang in Brighton Beach. Kislin has denied having ties to the Russian mob.
29. Sergey Kislyak Russian ambassador to the US who had a number of secret meetings and communications with Trump campaign officials, including General Mike Flynn and Senator Jeff Sessions. During the Republican National Convention, Kislyak had two brief encounters with Trump foreign policy adviser J. D. Gordon, who was a key figure in rewriting—and weakening—the Ukraine plank in the Republican platform.
30. Simon Kukes Bought an apartment in Trump Parc in 2000 and contributed more than $280,000 to various Trump entities. Picked by Putin to head Yukos Oil, replacing Putin foe Mikhail Khodorkovsky. Shortly after the Trump Tower Russian meeting, Kukes started making major contributions to the Trump campaign as well as the Republican National Committee.
31. Bennett LeBow Founder and chairman of the Brooke Group. LeBow and Howard Lorber, president of the Brooke Group, accompanied Trump on his 1996 trip to Moscow.
32. Lev Leviev An Israeli billionaire close to Putin, Leviev made his fortune by cracking the world diamond monopoly of the De Beers cartel. Has several ties to Trump, among them a business relationship with Jared Kushner, who bought four floors of the old New York Times Building, on West Forty-Third Street, from Leviev for $295 million.13 In addition, Leviev was closely tied to the late Trump SoHo financier Tamir Sapir through Sapir’s son-in-law Rotem Rosen, who was the CEO of the American branch of Africa Israel, Leviev’s holding company, and who also became CEO of the Sapir Organization. One of Chabad’s biggest patrons worldwide, Leviev allied with Roman Abramovich to create the Federation of Jewish Communities of Russia under the leadership of Chabad rabbi Berel Lazar, who would come to be known as “Putin’s rabbi.”
33. Howard Lorber President of the Brooke Group. Lorber and Brooke CEO Bennett LeBow accompanied Trump to Moscow in 1996.
34. Yuri Luzhkov As mayor of Moscow, Luzhkov was tied to Mogilevich and cultivated a reputation for corruption that was summed up by John Beyrle, then US ambassador to Russia, in a 2010 cable to Washington. “Corruption in Moscow remains pervasive with Mayor Luzhkov at the top of the pyramid,” Beyrle wrote. “Luzhkov oversees a system in which it appears that almost everyone at every level is involved in some form of corruption or criminal behavior.” Trump’s meetings in Moscow city hall to discuss major developments in Moscow took place under Luzhkov’s aegis.
35. Paul Manafort Before becoming Trump’s campaign manager, Paul Manafort had been hired by Ukraine’s pro-Putin Party of Regions to do an “extreme makeover” of Viktor Yanukovych that succeeded in making him president—only to see Yanukovych later exiled in disgrace. Manafort worked for oligarchs Oleg Deripaska and Rinat Akhmetov. As early as 2005, Manafort proposed to influence politics, business dealings, and news coverage inside the United States, Europe, and former Soviet republics to Putin’s benefit. He is alleged to have hidden $75 million in offshore accounts, at least one of which has ties to Mogilevich.
36. Alexander Mashkevich Kazakh billionaire who, with Patokh Chodiev and Alijan Ibragimov, is part of the Troika, or Trio, as they are known, major stockholders in the Eurasian Natural Resources Corporation, which controls chromium, alumina, and gas operations in Kazakhstan. Along with Chodiev, Mashkevich worked at Boris Birshtein’s KGB-linked Seabeco16 and was tied up with the Russian Mafia through their alliance with the Chernoys in the Aluminum Wars. He is listed in Bayrock’s promotional literature as a primary financial backer, but it is unclear if Mashkevich actually backed Bayrock projects.
37. Sergei Mikhailov Alleged to be the longtime head of Solntsevskaya Bratva, the biggest crime gang in Russia, and an associate of Semion Mogilevich, who is said to have laundered money for him starting in 1984. According to one denizen of the Russian underworld, Mikhailov is very much the boss and is more powerful that Mogilevich, who, as the brains of the operation, laundered vast amounts of money and came up with its most sophisticated financial scams, which is why Mikhailov has partnered in at least eight companies with Mogilevich. Mikhailov’s ties to Trump largely run through Mogilevich, but in 2013 Mikhailov was said to be interested in backing a Trump Tower development in Moscow and allegedly met with Trump representatives at the Ukraine hotel in Moscow.
38. Semion Mogilevich Ukrainian-born alleged “Brainy Don” of the Russian Mafia, with a multibillion-dollar organization allegedly involved in the sale of nuclear materials to terrorists, human trafficking and prostitution, drugs, and money laundering. In a 1995 Tel Aviv meeting, Mogilevich was awarded a controlling stake in RosUkrEnergo by fellow mobsters, thereby securing the franchise to siphon off untold riches from the Ukraine-Russia energy trade. Has close ties to Yuri Luzhkov, the former mayor of Moscow; Leonid Derkach, former head of the Security Service of Ukraine; and Vladimir Putin. In 1992, Mogilevich sent Vyacheslav Ivankov to New York to oversee expansion of the Mafia into the US. Trump partner Felix Sater was said to be Mogilevich’s shammes—i.e., his errand boy.
39. Hillel “Helly” Nahmad An art dealer who started buying apartments in Trump Tower in 1999, eventually taking over a full floor. Nahmad was a leader of the Nahmad-Trincher Organization, which operated “international sports books” that laundered more than $100 million out of the former Soviet Union, through shell companies in Cyprus, and into investments in the United States in an enterprise that was based in Trump Tower. The entire operation, prosecutors say, was protected by Alimzhan Tokhtakhounov.
40. Eduard Nektalov A diamond dealer from Uzbekistan, Nektalov, who bought a condo in Trump World Tower directly below Kellyanne Conway, came under investigation by the US Treasury Department for mob-connected money laundering. In 2004, after rumors circulated that Nektalov might cave in and cooperate with federal investigators, he was murdered on Sixth Avenue.
41. Alexandre Ventura Nogueira Primary broker of the Trump Ocean Club in Panama, Nogueira marketed the Trump-branded units to Russians, among others with criminal pasts.
42. Carter Page Foreign policy adviser to the Trump campaign. Traveled to Moscow in July 2016 during the presidential election and met with senior Russian officials and influential oligarchs. Was approached in 2013 by Russian intelligence officials who were trying to recruit him. Page met with a Russian spy in 2013 and supplied research materials.
43. George Papadopoulos A foreign policy adviser to the Trump campaign, Papadopoulos triggered the FBI investigation into Trump’s collusion with Russia when he told an Australian top diplomat that Russia had political dirt on Hillary Clinton. In March 2016, Papadopoulos met with Joseph Mifsud, a Maltese professor who had valuable contacts with the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, in hopes of setting up a meeting between Trump and Putin.
44. Sergei Polonsky A flamboyant six-foot-four Russian real estate oligarch, Polonsky was convicted of fraud in 2017. While still associated with Donald Trump, Felix Sater served as an adviser to Polonsky in Mirax Group, which partnered with Sistema, a conglomerate tied to Mogilevich. Polonsky also partnered with Moscow mayor Yuri Luzhkov, a Mogilevich crony.
45. Vadim Rabinovich A pro-Russia Ukrainian oligarch and Mogilevich lieutenant who spent seven years in jail for embezzlement, Rabinovich attended the famous 1995 Russian Mafia summit in Tel Aviv at which Mogilevich was granted a generous share of the Ukraine energy trade. A year later, in 1996, Rabinovich hung around with his partners Howard Lorber and Bennett LeBow as they showed Trump around town.
46. Vladimir Rezin In 1996, Trump began negotiations with Rezin, the first deputy mayor of Moscow, to build a $300 million luxury residential complex. Like all of Trump’s proposed projects in Moscow, it never came to fruition.
47. Rotem Rosen Chief lieutenant of real estate magnate Lev “King of Diamonds” Leviev, Rosen married Zina Sapir, daughter of Tamir Sapir, who founded the Sapir Organization, which backed Trump SoHo. Attended Trump’s 2013 Miss Universe pageant in Moscow in hopes of negotiating a Trump Tower Moscow. His son’s 2008 bris was touted by New York magazine as “the best bris invite ever.” Attendees included Donald Trump, daughter Ivanka, and her husband-to-be, Jared Kushner.
48. Dmitry Rybolovlev Russia’s “fertilizer king,” Rybolovlev owns a 3.3 percent stake in the Bank of Cyprus, alleged to be a haven for money laundering. In 2008, he purchased a mega-mansion from Trump in Palm Beach for $95 million, which Trump had purchased four years earlier for $40 million.
49. Tamir Sapir An impoverished immigrant turned billionaire, Sapir partnered with Semyon Kislin, who, according to the FBI, was a “member or associate” of Vyacheslav Ivankov’s mob in Brighton Beach. Like Kislin, Sapir likely made his money through ties to Uzbek oligarch Mikhail Chernoy. Lived in Trump Tower, and partnered with Bayrock and Trump on Trump SoHo. Sapir denied having any mob ties. Died in 2014.
50. Felix Sater Bayrock’s international man of mystery, Sater was born in the Soviet Union in 1966. As managing director of Bayrock Group, he partnered with Trump and made various stabs at developing Trump Tower Moscow. Cooperated with the government after pleading guilty to racketeering for his role in a $40 million stock fraud scheme in 1998. His father was said to be a lieutenant in Mogilevich’s organization and did business with the Italian Mafia in New York. Childhood friend of Trump lawyer Michael Cohen. Served as a government asset who helped the US track terrorists and mobsters, but is also alleged to be working with Mogilevich. Accompanied Ivanka Trump and Donald Jr. on a 2006 Russia trip, in which he said he arranged for Ivanka to spin around in Putin’s chair in the Kremlin.
51. Alex Shnaider In the early 2000s, he began to develop the tallest building in Canada, the sixty-five-story Trump Tower and Hotel in Toronto. When it came to financing the skyscraper, Shnaider, a billionaire of Russian extraction, turned to Raiffeisen Bank International AG in Vienna, whose affiliate company was said to be a front for RosUkrEnergo. Shnaider is also the son-in-law of Boris Birshtein and worked at Birshtein’s KGB-tied company, Seabeco.
52. Eric Sitarchuk As an attorney, Sitarchuk represented Mogilevich lieutenant Jacob Bogatin during the YBM Magnex scandal and, many years later, Donald Trump himself as owner of the Trump International Hotel in DC, when a wine bar argued that the president’s ownership of the hotel constituted an unfair competitive advantage.
53. Roger Stone A close Trump ally for decades, Stone represented Trump when he moved into the gambling industry in the eighties. Served as adviser to the Trump campaign during the 2016 election. Communicated directly and indirectly with WikiLeaks in order to obtain dirt on Hillary Clinton and hacked emails before the election.
54. Gennady Timchenko Yet another judoka pal of Putin’s who ended up a billionaire, in this case as chairman of the Gunvor oil-trading firm, with a net worth of $15.6 billion.20 Cited as a member of Putin’s inner circle, Timchenko has been subject to sanctions. As an owner of Sibur, a large gas company, he is one of the biggest clients of Navigator Holdings, a shipping firm partly owned by Trump’s commerce secretary Wilbur Ross.
55. Vadim Trincher Along with Alimzhan Tokhtakhounov, Anatoly Golubchik, and Hillel Nahmad, Trincher was a leader of two Russian-American organized crime families—the Taiwanchik-Trincher Organization and the Nahmad-Trincher Organization—which ran “international sports books” that laundered more than $100 million out of the former Soviet Union. They operated out of the sixty-third floor of Trump Tower until they were busted in 2013.
56. Alimzhan “Taiwanchik” Tokhtakhounov Another ringleader of the Taiwanchik-Trincher Organization, Tokhtakhounov has allegedly spent more than three decades working with Mogilevich and the Solntsevo Organization, dating back to the early eighties, when he hung out with Mogilevich and Mikhailov at the Legendary Hotel Sovietsky in the Moscow suburb of Solntsevo. He was indicted for conspiring to fix the ice-skating competition at the 2002 Winter Olympics. After the bust of the gambling ring in Trump Tower in April 2013, he surfaced in November at the Miss Universe pageant in Moscow near Donald Trump.
57. Viktor Vekselberg A member of Putin’s inner circle, Vekselberg is the largest shareholder in the Bank of Cyprus, investing in it at a time when Wilbur Ross, who has since become Trump’s secretary of commerce, was the bank’s vice chairman.
58. Natalia Veselnitskaya A Russian attorney for Denis Katsys’s Cyprus-based Prevezon Holdings, Veselnitskaya set up the June 2016 meeting in Trump Tower with Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner, and Paul Manafort, among others. Veselnitskaya has been an informant to Yuri Chaika, the prosecutor general of Russia. The meeting held forth the promise of handing over damaging information on Hillary Clinton to the Trump campaign, as well as addressing the possibility of lifting sanctions against Russia. Closely aligned with the Agalarovs.
59. Viktor Yanukovych Elected president of Ukraine after being completely remade as a candidate by Paul Manafort. Earned a reputation as a “Putin puppet,” and was ousted in 2014, and exiled to Russia. Manafort, Rick Gates, and Konstantin Kilimnik all worked for Yanukovych for more than a decade—in return for tens of millions of dollars.

2018.05.16 07:08 collegegirl29throw How to practice my Judaism at home

Hi! Im a college student that goes to a large (20,000) state university, with a very small Jewish population (few hundred? if that?). My dad is Jewish but we only grew up culturally Jewish. I have been wanting to be more involved since I went on Birthright. I have approached the Hillel group and signed up to receive emails but have never gotten one. I follow their facebook page but I feel uncomfortable showing up without anyone reaching out to me. There is also an older man in Hillel who I've encountered around campus who makes me a little uncomfortable, which also factors into not wanting to just go to these events.
Additionally, the local temple also felt really uncomfortable when I attended services, because I don't sing or read along, just follow as best I can. That experience was bad because I sat near the back but everyone kept turning around and staring at me and my sister.
I signed up for partners in Torah, but haven't heard back yet. In the meantime, is there any resources for things to do at home? Or what you personally do?

Visit the website and click the telegr*m link and join too~
CEDEX.com is a global exchange that focuses on bridging the gap between the traditional diamond industry and the innovative financial markets. With its extensive industry knowledge, CEDEX wants to engineer a ground-breaking change – enabling people to liquidate and invest in diamonds like any other financial asset, in a transparent and secure way.
The CEDEX exchange enables anyone to invest in individual diamonds, shares of a high- value stone or shares in a basket of diamonds (ETF). Investors, buyers and sellers have full confidense because the diamond value is transparent, using the DEX, our machine learning algorithm and blockchain technology that rates a diamond’s asking price; liquid because it creates a two- sided market by enhancing both the supply and demand, and fungible because CEDEX creates a unique benchmark value, rate and contract for every stone.
The Technology DEX – The Intelligence Behind CEDEX
DEX, our proprietary machine-learning algorithm has been created to bring transparency and coherency to the diamond financial market. The DEX comprises three main elements: gemological composition of individual diamonds listed on CEDEX, diamond market financial indices and global inventory analysis. Diamonds are onboarded to CEDEX and classified by categories. The DEX has been designed to incorporate artificial neural network technology using all available diamond data.
Try DEX for yourself!
See how easy, open and transparent it is to invest or trade in diamonds through CEDEX. Our DEX Beta version will give you a theoretical price for your diamond and rate it by its relative market value on the spot! (for round carat stones 0.3, 0.5 and 1.0 carats. Once the DEX is fully developed it will be able to provide all type/size diamonds)
CEDEX Coin – Powering CEDEX Exchange
The CEDEX Coin is an ERC-20-compatible token traded over the public Ethereum blockchain. It will enable our participants to purchase diamonds on the CEDEX, transforming their assets into diamonds. Use of the CEDEX Coin will be driven by trading volumes generated on the CEDEX.com exchange and the demand of the diamond ecosystem. The CEDEX Coin will be listed on all major exchanges and will be transferable to other cryptocurrencies and fiat currencies.
The CEDEX Coin will be the only means of payment used on the CEDEX exchange. The CEDEX Coin amount is limited and coins offered on the sale that will not be bought will be burned.

CEDEX.com is a global exchange that focuses on bridging the gap between the traditional diamond industry and the innovative financial markets. With its extensive industry knowledge, CEDEX wants to engineer a ground-breaking change – enabling people to liquidate and invest in diamonds like any other financial asset, in a transparent and secure way.
The CEDEX exchange enables anyone to invest in individual diamonds, shares of a high- value stone or shares in a basket of diamonds (ETF). Investors, buyers and sellers have full confidense because the diamond value is transparent, using the DEX, our machine learning algorithm and blockchain technology that rates a diamond’s asking price; liquid because it creates a two- sided market by enhancing both the supply and demand, and fungible because CEDEX creates a unique benchmark value, rate and contract for every stone.
The Technology DEX – The Intelligence Behind CEDEX
DEX, our proprietary machine-learning algorithm has been created to bring transparency and coherency to the diamond financial market. The DEX comprises three main elements: gemological composition of individual diamonds listed on CEDEX, diamond market financial indices and global inventory analysis. Diamonds are onboarded to CEDEX and classified by categories. The DEX has been designed to incorporate artificial neural network technology using all available diamond data.
Try DEX for yourself!
See how easy, open and transparent it is to invest or trade in diamonds through CEDEX. Our DEX Beta version will give you a theoretical price for your diamond and rate it by its relative market value on the spot! (for round carat stones 0.3, 0.5 and 1.0 carats. Once the DEX is fully developed it will be able to provide all type/size diamonds)
CEDEX Coin – Powering CEDEX Exchange
The CEDEX Coin is an ERC-20-compatible token traded over the public Ethereum blockchain. It will enable our participants to purchase diamonds on the CEDEX, transforming their assets into diamonds. Use of the CEDEX Coin will be driven by trading volumes generated on the CEDEX.com exchange and the demand of the diamond ecosystem. The CEDEX Coin will be listed on all major exchanges and will be transferable to other cryptocurrencies and fiat currencies.
The CEDEX Coin will be the only means of payment used on the CEDEX exchange. The CEDEX Coin amount is limited and coins offered on the sale that will not be bought will be burned.
