New Music from Israel!

Feel the ocean spray, go into the water and feel the waves wash over you.  Relax and listen to the xylophone, blow into a bottle, play on a woodblock all at the beach!

Take a tour in Jerusalem, the one that most people don't usually see.  Guess where all the places are and I will dedicate the next video to YOU!

The street cat looks out at the view of Jerusalem, in this Trance video.  How do you feel? Can you dance?  I'll play the music and you dance up a storm!

Enjoy my original creations!  I composed them on the computer and they are also performed by MIDI. Then the file is converted to mp3.  Afterwards, I take the audio file, and put into Camtasia video processing, add some effects and here you have the final video!

Enjoy, comment below!

Listia - a world wide Gemach

This is a place where you can give away all those things that you got as gifts or they were impulse buys and you like them but you don't really need them anymore.  Here is an example.  I love silk, but maybe not quite this color pink.  But someone else might like it.  It is a size 10 and has shoulder pads.  You can get it for free if you click on this link!  If you come to pick it up in Jerusalem, there will be no shipping charge. 


Here it is from the front . . .


  And from the back! 

See you on the other side!

University of the People. For Students and Instructors

I came across this website the other day which has a mission to give higher education to everyone! 

They offer a few different degrees, including a Business stream, computer programming and Health care.  You can get Associate Degrees, Bachelor Degrees or a Master's Degree all on-line from your home or office. https://www.uopeople.edu/

Anyone can apply from where ever they are in the world, and study via video.  The only cost is the admission fee and the exam fees.  

This program is not for everyone though.  In order to get the most out of your studies, you should devote as much time as you would if you were studying at other universities.  Log on to your classes, watch the videos,  do the assignments, read the books and when you finish you can go out there and get a job! 

Now, there is an opportunity for people who want to teach too!  If you have a graduate degree and want to help students get an education, go to  https://instructors.uopeople.edu/Account/SignUp and sign up to become an instructor,  I don't know how much it pays, but it looks like a good job for a retired professor or teacher.  

Good Luck to both students and professors!

Driverless Cars on the way or a Flop?

This is a Driverless bus.  It had an accident the first day on the job.  Is this the future of Driverless Cars and transport?  Were there people inside?   Who pays for the damage caused by a driverless car?

These are a few of the questions that need to be answered about this new mode of transport.
Actually, it is not a bad idea.  If the traffic is so bad that it is stop and start on the 405 San Diego Freeway, or the 10 Santa Monica Freeway into Downtown Los Angeles, then maybe it would be a good idea to turn over control of the car to the computer.  I don't like to have to pay attention to the driver in front as he or she stops and starts, stops,, starts, maybe the compter can do a better job than I can and I will have less stress while I am driving.  Then, maybe I can check my e-mails

When the traffic opens up, then I would like to take control back from the computer and have more fun while driving.

What do you think?  Do you think that the car companies would be able to do this?

We will wait and see.
Put any comments below!
Yours Sincerely

The Israel Tax Authority is on limited strike.

Am I the only one who is angry at the Israel Tax Authority?  I just need two little forms so I can get paid next week when I and my husband do a concert at Beit Tovei HaIr on November 18th at 7:00pm. 

(shameless plug)   But I will probably be playing flute. 
So I go there and wait in line, and when I get to the office that I need to go, they tell me that I don't need to get the form.  I don't think so,  I have always gotten these forms when I need to be paid by a one off.  

So I ask for a way to get on the Internet, she gives me a phone number, but there is no choice to get on the Internet.  No person to speak to.  

If the people there don't want to work, so fire them and get honest workers who really need a job and are willing to work.  I am paid by the hour.  so if I don't work, I don't get paid.  

I'll go to work there.  I can work a computer.  . . 

My 2 cents worth!

Review of Humantic

I have found a new site that any English, Spanish, Cantonese or Mandarin Speaker can work on.

https://www.humanatic.com is a recorded call review site,  You can work from anywhere in the world.  More calls come in all the time.

You review calls of customers and companies, You have to answer a simple question, but it is important that you watch the time. I had to practice a bit and then I was able to do it with 100% accuracy.

My advice is to set up a time that you want to work and do it every day.  I suggest 15-20 minutes at a time so that you can keep your attention span sharp.

I have spent a half hour on the site today, learning and review some calls, and I made 11 cents. The administration has to review my answers but I think that I will be pretty accurate.

If the server is overloaded they put up a "break room" for 20 seconds.

In order to sign up you have to make sure that you have your Paypal account linked. The Humanic site won't let you sign up without it.  So make sure that you have your Paypal account address and password on hand.  Humantic doesn't store your password.

So if you have some time on your hands are are good with listening, then go and sign up with this site.

Make sure that when you go in that you have some time.  If you only have 5 minutes, then it is not worth it.

Have Fun and make some money.

How to write an advertising e-mail

I just got in my e-mail a parsha sheet, but in the first line, instead of writing about the content, the writer asks for money right away. So, really I am not interested in reading anymore and I went an unsubscribed.  I can see that the person is sending out the information just to get more money and I don't want to have to be nagged to pay even before I can evaluate if I like it or not.
Just because I like spring flowers 

A better way to get more subscribers is to write the content, in this case about the Weekly Torah Parsha and then at the end when the person sees how good the content is, ask for a donation.

Many people are so "needy" and they want and want, but in fact the asking right up front puts many people off.

So you don't have to take my advice, but think about it.

Prepare your Aliya now! Learn Hebrew on-line!

While everyone else is wasting time going to different places, and trying to deal with the problems of eating kosher food, you can be home and studying Hebrew in preparation for your next trip to Israel, or your Aliya!

I teach Hebrew on-line  I can help you to learn Hebrew from the beginning, I use a variety of different texts and approaches depending upon YOUR needs.

Then when you come to Israel, you will be able to speak and feel more comfortable!  If you do go to Ulpan, you can enter at a higher level and get even better prepared to go into the REAL world of Israel either studying at University or getting a REAL job in Your Field.

So go here: http://live-hebrew.net/  And choose Rachael as your Hebrew Teacher!!

Here is one of the books that I use. I can even go buy it for you and send it to you before we start lessons!  Or you can get it on Amazon   It is best to have a teacher, so I can help you with pronunciation and all the questions that you will have!

See you in Class!
