    Synopsis On today's date in 1950, the orchestra of the Musical Arts Society of La Jolla, California gave the premiere performance of this music by the Czech composer Bohuslav Martinu. The "Sinfonietta La Jolla" was Martinu's response to the Society's call for a tuneful and approachable piece of new music for their chamber orchestra. Martinu modeled his 20th century work on the 18th century symphonies of Haydn, a composer he very much admired. In fact, in 1890, when Martinu was born, his native Bohemia was still a part of the Austria-Hungarian empire in which Haydn had lived and worked a hundred years earlier. Martinu's music blends the modernism of 20th century composers like Stravinsky with the rich 19th century tradition of Czech national composers like Dvořák – but Martinu's relations with his native land were anything but smooth. He was twice kicked out of the Prague Conservatory for his supposed lack of academic discipline, and instead established himself as a freelance composer in France and Switzerland. Then, just as his music began to receive some recognition and performances back in Prague, the Nazi invasion of World War II led to his works being banned. In 1941, Martinu settled in the United States, where his music was very well received. In 1948, Martinu returned briefly to Prague, but found the new Communist government there as distasteful to him as the Nazis. Martinu's "Sinfonietta La Jolla" was written shortly after he returned to the United States.

    Though change is generally a gradual process through history, it's worth noting how several momentous events which were indicators of a dynamic Jewish community all occurred during the year 1897. The first Zionist Congress in Basel, Switzerland, the founding of the socialist Bund political party in Vilna, the Pulmoss Hamussar in Lithuania and the founding of the Tomchei Temimim Yeshiva of Chabad in Lubavitch. Are these seemingly unrelated events which differ so much in ideology, goals and constituency at all connected? Or do all four separate events indicate some unifying trends taking place in the volatile situation the Jewish People found themselves within as the 19th century came to a close?   Check out some great art: Twitter @ilanblock ; Insta@ silanblock Whatsapp 908-239-9161 ; Email ilanblock@gmail.com   For sponsorship opportunities about your favorite topics of Jewish history contact Yehuda at:  yehuda@yehudageberer.com   Subscribe To Our Podcast on:  PodBean: https://jsoundbites.podbean.com/ Follow us on Twitter or Instagram at @Jsoundbites You can email Yehuda at yehuda@yehudageberer.com

    Daily News Brief by TRT World

    *) US attorney general says 'personally approved' Trump home search US Attorney General Merrick Garland has said he "personally approved" the dramatic raid on former American President Donald Trump's Florida estate. In a highly unusual move, he also requested the warrant justifying the search be made public — though he did not reveal the reason for the search. The Washington Post has reported that federal agents were looking for documents relating to nuclear weapons. It was not clear if such documents were recovered. *) IAEA chief warns of 'grave hour' at Ukraine nuclear plant The head of the UN nuclear watchdog has told the Security Council that the agency must be allowed to inspect Ukraine's Zaporizhzhia (zah-POH-reeja) nuclear plant. Rafael Grossi told an emergency meeting via video feed that fighting between Russian and Ukrainian soldiers near the site sparked a "grave" crisis. The clashes at and around Zaporizhzhia have led to urgent international calls for an end to fighting around the plant, the largest of its kind in Europe. *) Hostage drama at Beirut bank ends after armed man turns himself in A hostage standoff in which a gunman demanded a Beirut bank let him withdraw his trapped savings so that he could pay his father's medical bills ended seven hours later. After hours of negotiations on Thursday, 42-year-old food-delivery driver Bassam al Sheikh Hussein accepted an offer from the bank to receive part of his savings. He did not actually receive any of the money, according to his lawyer. His wife told reporters after his arrest that her husband “did what he had to do". *) Sri Lankan ex-president Rajapaksa arrives in Bangkok after fleeing protests Former Sri Lankan president Gotabaya Rajapaksa has arrived in Bangkok after his visa ran out following a month-long stint in Singapore. The Thai foreign ministry said it received a request from Colombo for the 73-year-old deposed leader to visit and an assurance that he would not seek political asylum. Earlier, Rajapaksa flew into Singapore from the Maldives on July 14 after fleeing a deepening economic crisis and widespread protests in Sri Lanka. And finally… *) Switzerland's mountain pass set to lose all ice within weeks The thick layer of ice that has covered a Swiss mountain pass for centuries will melt away completely within a few weeks, a ski resort has warned. While the ice measured around 50-feet thick in 2012, the ground underneath "will have completely resurfaced by the end of September", the Glacier 3000 ski resort said in a statement. Following a dry winter, the summer heat waves hitting Europe have been catastrophic for the Alpine glaciers, which have been melting at an accelerated rate.

    How data ownership redefines the relationship between artists and fans

    Over the course of the past two decades, Grammy Award-winning DJ, André Allen Anjos (also known as RAC) has noticed a growing trend. "There's been a trend since 2005 in the MySpace era, and all of that has been a trend towards sovereignty of an artist, of putting the artists on top," he says. RAC is an advisor to Audius — a decentralized music streaming platform that raised $5 million last September from big names including Coinbase Ventures and Pantera Capital, along with popular artists such as Jason Derulo and Katy Perry. In this episode of The Scoop, RAC and Audius Co-Founder and CEO Roneil Rumburg examine the limitations of centralized music streaming platforms and explain how data ownership in web3 allows artists to redefine their relationship to their fans.  Rumburg argues that centralized streaming platforms prevent artists from establishing a direct connection with their fanbase. "There shouldn't be this sense of 'platform lock-in' that we have today on Spotify or places like that where, as a creator, you don't really know who your fans are, and you don't have the ability to port that fan base between experiences." RAC has first-hand experience with this problem: while the DJ has 5.5 million followers on SoundCloud, his fanbase is "locked" into the platform. Artists "don't own that connection in any way," he says. Audius is designed to avoid that, according to Rumburg. "Our company could go away tomorrow, and all of this would keep working… From the artist's perspective, there's no lock in here. You can take your following and your data that you have here and use it anywhere else." Episode 76 of Season 4 of The Scoop was recorded remotely with The Block's Frank Chaparro, Audius Co-Founder Roneil Rumburg and Grammy award winning DJ and Audius Advisor, RAC.

    CoinShares — a London-based crypto firm whose operations include asset management, venture capital, and proprietary trading — had exposure to Terra's "algorithmic" stablecoin UST, the collapse of which resulted in a loss of $21 million for the firm's trading unit of the business. In this episode of The Scoop, CoinShares CEO Jean-Marie Mognetti provides an inside look at how CoinShares navigated Terra's collapse, and why crypto's "private company environment" leads to marketplace uncertainty. According to Mognetti, a lack of standardized disclosure requirements for crypto firms makes it difficult to verify balance sheet details. "The opacity despite all the progress we're doing is quite intense, so you don't have as much information as you want." While Mognetti points to Voyager Digital as an example of a crypto company that has fully disclosed the state of its book, he acknowledges this is likely due to Voyager's status as a publicly traded company — for private companies, the disclosure requirements aren't nearly as robust and largely vary by jurisdiction. This leads to uncertainty, Mognetti argued. "Even if they tell you they're good, you don't know what they have in the book and against whom they are exposed."

    We are joined by Susanne M. Jaeggi, Ph.D discusses how working memory is an essential system that underlies the performance of virtually all complex cognitive activities. People differ in terms of how much information they can hold in working memory, and also, how easily they can hold that information in the face of distraction. These individual differences are related to the fact that the functioning of the working memory system is highly predictive of scholastic achievement and educational success, and in general, working memory capacity is crucial for our general ability to acquire knowledge and learn new skills. Given the relevance of working memory to daily life and educational settings, the mission of my research program lies in the development of working memory interventions with the aim that that participants not only improve their working memory skills, but also general skills that go beyond the trained domain. By means of behavioral and neuroimaging methods, I seek to understand the underlying cognitive and neural mechanisms that drive training-related changes.Besides research on training and transfer, my lab also investigates individual differences in working memory capacity and executive control, as well as the nature of working memory limitations across the lifespan.https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/does-brain-training-actually-work/"To overcome these limitations, our team is currently leveraging the power of citizen science. Similar to a large-scale study in the United Kingdom (Brain Test Britain, promoted by Cambridge University and the BBC), we are seeking to recruit thousands of participants to help us uncover the potential merits of memory training. But unlike Brain Test Britain's simple question of whether brain training works, we are looking to engage the U.S. population in a new challenge to test why and for whom brain training works, and under which conditions.To accomplish our goal, we have launched a new study funded by the National Institutes of Health that aims to recruit 30,000 volunteers to participate in a memory training study that compares multiple approaches to train working memory. The study will use a common set of assessment measures to evaluate potential training gains, and it will focus on individual differences. Anyone older than 18 can join our study and help generate the data required to change the debate and move forward with a new paradigm of precision brain training.

    As a writer, photographer, translator, and the first Certified Cicerone in Ukraine now living in Switzerland, Lana Svitankova wears a lot of hats. One of them is to capture moments through her photography and to share them with the world. Another is to collect memories and enshrine them through her storytelling. But one particular hat is that of an ambassador, on a mission to immortalize a beer from her homeland of Ukraine. Ukrainian Golden Ale isn't an official beer style—yet. But Lana believes that it's unique enough to warrant inclusion in style guides across the world, despite some skeptics. No, it's not the most exciting beer ever brewed, she admits. But with more eyes than ever fixed on Ukraine, people are beginning to take an interest in her quest. That being said, Lana remains adamant that this beer style shouldn't be considered for anything other than its own merits, explaining that the campaign for recognition has been going on for years. Still, it's heartening to know the world supports these efforts. Today, we'll hear about those efforts, as well as Lana's work as a photographer. COVID robbed her of her ability to capture pictures of people—her preferred subject—but slowly and surely, that pendulum from isolation to socialization is swinging back once more. Beer is meant to be temporary, but photographs last forever.

    In Episode 466: What Is CERN? Dave Zed from Generation Zed Podcast joins us. A few months ago I was a guest on the popular show, The Union of the Unwanted, a panel discussion show. They brought me on to talk about UFOs and that is where I met Dave. He blew me away with the knowledge he has obtained and he literally left me just sitting and listening wanting to learn more. Fast forward a few weeks ago we had a listener ask in the Instagram comments, "What is CERN?" I then knew I had to do a show on CERN because the last one I did was episode 57 and it's clearly been too long and new listeners need to be introduced. So, I reached out to Dave as he popped into my mind as someone that might know a little about CERN and my assumptions we correct. Dave breaks down today what he believes CERN to be and what its true intentions are in the world. Is it simply a harmless underground 17-mile-in diameter, particle accelerator that crosses the border of Switzerland and France? Or, is there something more to it that they aren't telling us? Is it opening portals to another dimension? Are things actually coming through these supposed portals? If the latter is true, could we possibly be living in the real-life version of Stranger Things or worse? We explore these topics in today's episode, "What Is CERN?"

    Daily Emunah Podcast - Daily Emunah By Rabbi David Ashear

    Life is filled with tests. It is our job to make the right decisions in the circumstances that Hashem puts us in. The tests can be very hard and, at times, it may appear that by choosing correctly we are losing out, but that is never true. The pasuk guaranteed us שומר מצוה לא ידע דבר רע – nothing negative can ever come out of doing a mitzvah. And if it appears that way, it is only because we aren't seeing the full picture yet. I heard a story of a man who found a wallet with close to 20,000 shekel inside. Initially, he was elated, being that he needed the money so badly. His children were being threatened to be thrown out of school because of his delinquency in paying tuition. His landlord was threatening to evict him because he was so many months behind the rent. He didn't even know how he was going to buy food for the upcoming Shabbat. This money was going to solve all of his problems. But then he saw an identification in the wallet and he knew he had a mitzvah to return it. He was thinking, why would Hashem make him find this wallet, knowing that he needed the money so badly? Maybe he is supposed to keep it? But then, heroically, he called the man and returned it. The man came, thanked him a lot, and then gave him 200 shekel as a reward. Right after the man left, this man was so upset. He went from having 20,000 shekel to just 200. But then he strengthened himself, feeling so happy that he overcame that very difficult test. He did not report afterward of any miracles taking place, but for sure, we know only good will come out of that act and his rewards for doing such a thing will be beyond comprehension. Rav Moshe Aharon Stern, zatzal , told he once traveled to Switzerland to raise money for the Kaminitz Yeshiva where he was the mashgiach ruchani . On one of the days there, he planned to pray Shacharit in a certain shul and was going to make an appeal afterward on behalf of the yeshiva. But then he was told that they pray there after the zeman , so he decided he was going to go somewhere else instead, even though he wouldn't get to make his appeal. Later that day, someone else who went to collect there that morning told the rabbi he missed out on a golden opportunity. There was a wealthy man there from out of town giving every collector 100 francs, which was a substantial amount of money. The rabbi knew he did not lose by choosing to pray on time. That evening, he went to that shul for Mincha and the wealthy man was back. After tefila , the Rabbi approached him, explaining which yeshiva he was from and asked if he wanted to help. At first, this man gave the rabbi the same 100 francs that he gave everyone else, but afterward, he asked someone about the rabbi who looked so distinguished and was told how great his yeshiva was. Then the man went back to him saying, he came to Switzerland specifically to give out tzedaka and he was about to leave but still had over 1000 francs left that he didn't give out yet. He then handed the rabbi all the money he had left and said he would be honored if his yeshiva would accept it. We never lose out by choosing correctly. A businessman once asked Rav Moshe Feinstein, zatzal , if he was allowed to go to a closing on a very large business deal during the Nine Days. Rav Moshe told him, since if he would try to postpone it he may lose out, he was allowed because davar ha'aved . Then the man asked the Rabbi if he was allowed to shave for the meeting as well. Although Sefaradim shave until the shavua shechal bo , the Ashkenazim already start beforehand, so Rav Moshe told him he would not be allowed to shave. On the day of the meeting, this man gave in to his evil inclination and he shaved anyway. At the meeting, the other party asked him how he could know he was trustworthy. He pointed to the kipah on his head and said he was a religious, G-d-fearing Jew, who is trustworthy to always do the right thing. Then the other party asked him if he was so trustworthy, why did he violate the law and shave? The man couldn't believe what he was hearing. In the end, they did not do the deal because the other side wasn't convinced that he was trustworthy enough. We are constantly being tested and although at times it may seem that if we follow Hashem we will lose out, that's never the case. By following the will of Hashem, we always win.

    A Strange and Stubborn Endurance (Tor, 2022) is marketed as a historical fantasy novel, but its subtle and humane sweetness set it aside from most examples of the genre. Though it offers political intrigues and battles, it is also a compassionate exploration of a man's recovery from assault and homophobia with the help of his new husband. The man in question, Velasin vin Aaro, exhibits little purpose in life when we first meet him at his father's estate. The third son of a nobleman, he's an insecure dilettante who is forced to conduct his affairs with other men in secrecy, due to the restrictive religious beliefs of his native country. When he's promised to a noblewoman from the neighboring country of Tithena in order to cement a new alliance, Velasin feels like he has no choice but to go along with his father's wishes. However, when a former lover forces himself onto Velasin and the two men are discovered undressed, his preferences are revealed. Rather than dissolving the alliance, the envoy from Tithena suggests marriage to the prospective bride's brother instead, to everyone's surprise. Velasin, shaken from the assault and forsaken by his father, takes his dear servant Markel and a few possessions and sets off to a country he barely knows, where his husband, Caethari, awaits him. From there on the story alternates between the two perspectives. Caethari, a well-adjusted warrior with a good understanding of boundaries, is ready to welcome his new husband, but someone else isn't—and is trying to break up the impending union with covert attacks and attempted assassinations from various people. Even more disturbing, this conspiracy claims to be acting under the directive of the Wild Knife—Caethari's fighting name. Caethari and Velasin will need to work together as partners to survive—and perhaps grow into their roles as husbands in the process. Foz Meadows is a genderqueer fantasy author with a pronounced weakness for Dragon Age, fanfic, webcomics and mornings that are so late as to technically constitute noons. She currently lives in California. Fun Fact: Foz' given name is Philippa. As a child she smiled all the time, so her father nicknamed her Foz, after the smiley Sesame Street character Fozzie bear. The nickname stuck. As well as being a fantasy writer, Gabrielle Martin has a Master's in Traditional Chinese Medicine.

    The Scoop
    Block's Mike Brock on 'Web5' and the role of digital identities

    Block CEO Jack Dorsey has called 'Web5,' a decentralized identity platform under development by TBD, the Block's blockchain arm, "likely our most important contribution to the internet." In this episode of The Scoop, TBD lead Mike Brock explains how Web5, whose name is a play on the idea of connecting Web2 and Web3, aims to reimagine the way trust is established and maintained, and how digital identity can connect the emerging decentralized financial system to the existing real-world economy. Hardcore crypto proponents dream of creating a fully decentralized, trustless system. But Brock says there are some practical problems with transacting in such a world: "Are you going to go and buy a gold watch from an anonymous online merchant and then send them a non-reversible payment for $10,000 and just hope that it gets drop-shipped to you?... We can't build an economy around that. We have to have a way to authenticate with the real world." That's where the Web5 platform comes in. Brock describes it as a "messaging layer that ultimately allows you to establish secure transactions, with negotiated social trust." Users of Web5 are in control of both their identities and their data — something Brock believes will facilitate a new way for the developing decentralized economy to connect with known, verifiable actors in the real world: "We're trying to build on-ramps and off-ramps from the real world — fundamentally, that's what digital identity ultimately gets you."
