timberland size chart A rare glimpse into the elite college that changed Lakewood forever

Editor’s note, Part 6: In a nine day series of stories, NJ Advance Media is taking a closer look at Lakewood, one of New Jersey’s fastest growing and most complex towns. Lakewood is home to a huge Orthodox Jewish community and the rapid growth has engulfed the town, igniting tensions between the religious and secular societies on many levels. Each day, we will explore some of the major issues in the community, including the welfare fraud investigation, housing problems and the strains on the education system.

LAKEWOOD It’s the institution that now defines Lakewood.

In 1943, Rabbi Aaron Kotler, a famed Jewish scholar, established Beth Medrash Govoha, propelling the transformation of a once posh lakeside resort town into a bustling metropolis for segments of the Orthodox Jewish community.

Today, Beth Medrash Govoha, more commonly called BMG, is America’s largest yeshiva, or Jewish college. A world wide attraction, it’s described by its students in the way other teens might describe Princeton or Yale. Prestigious. Elite. Their definitive No. 1 choice.

“It is the centerpiece and crowning glory of Jewish life in Lakewood,” said Ali Botein Furrevig, an Ocean County College professor who wrote a book about the township’s Jewish community.

Yet to many outsiders, BMG remains an enigma as misunderstood as Lakewood’s Jewish community itself.

It has no website. It enrolls men only. And, because BMG has no traditional freshman students, it reports no graduation rate or job placement data to the federal government, though it receives millions in government grants for low income students.

The campus, a series of buildings nestled throughout a residential area, is crawling with men in dark suits and wide brimmed hats, their mission often misunderstood. Are they there to become rabbis? To read the Torah? What do they do after graduation?

“We all see misconceptions,” said Naftali Kunstlinger, a 2003 BMG graduate who lives in Lakewood and has a law firm downtown. “But some of them are too silly to be addressed, to be quite frank.”

To truly understand Lakewood, you must first understand BMG. And to understand BMG, you have to go inside.

A student walks past one one Beth Medrash Govoha’s academic buildings in Lakewood. That’s the first thing visitors hear when a pair of first floor classroom doors swing open at BMG.

The gymnasium sized study hall is packed with more than 500 students, young men each dressed in white button down shirts, black pants, black belts and black shoes. They sit in rows of black banquet hall style chairs and lean over the brown wooden podiums holding their thick books.

In a scene unlike any traditional college class, the ornate podium at the front of the room is vacant, with no professor in sight. Some students rock back and forth and back and forth and back and forth in their chairs. Others stand, their heads sticking out among the sea of white shirts.

Animated facial expressions and hand gestures are exchanged between students, deep in discussion with one another. And the singing. It cuts through the continuous hum of deliberation and debate.

The song emanates from a single student sitting near the doorway, his words and language unrecognizable to visitors. It’s all part of the process of studying the Talmud, a school official said.

A classroom inside Beth Medrash Govoha. Students spend much of the day in large study sessions.

Studying the Talmud, a collection of writings on Jewish laws and traditions, is a key to preserving the Jewish customs so revered in the Orthodox community. At BMG, where undergraduate tuition is just under $20,000 a year, there are no other majors or classes except Talmudic study, which is offered six day a week. and goes, as one student put it, “until you drop.”

“There are no weekends here. There are no Sundays off,” said Haim Toledano, 22, a baby faced Parisian who enrolled at BMG last fall. “You are studying the Talmud from morning to basically the nights.”

Originally written in ancient Aramaic, the Talmud has sections written throughout history, 2,000 years ago, 500 years ago, 1,000 years ago.

“It’s not easy reading. It doesn’t just flow like there’s a story and storyline that goes natural to the other,” said Yaakov Friedman, a part time professor at BMG. “You’ve gotta mesh it all together. It’s work.”

Hats and cell phones line the hallway outside of a classroom at Beth Medrash Govoha. Many students carry flip phones without internet access and leave them outside the classroom to avoid distractions.

About 70 percent of BMG’s undergraduate students receive federal Pell grants for low income students, netting more than $8 million a year for the yeshiva, according to federal data.

Some students at BMG, where men start classes around age 21, plan to complete a degree at a secular college in the future. But the time spent studying the Talmud, a process that sharpens analytical and debate skills, is invaluable, former students said.

“It’s not just about the study that you did,” said Moshe Bender, who lives in Lakewood and earned a bachelor’s degree in Talmudic studies from BMG in 2013 followed by a master’s degree in 2015. “It’s about the being of the person, what it does to you, how you are kind of made up. It just makes us into a better person, that our whole being is on a higher level.”

Such devotion is what Rabbi Kotler imagined when he brought BMG to Lakewood at the request of a local hotel owner, according to his family.

timberland mens boots sale A quiet night on the Carpathia

Further to B. Enns Titanic story in last the April 18 Daily News, I would like to share my story with your readers. I grew up in English countryside just outside the village of Lowdham in Nottinghamshire. A few houses down our road lived a man called Harold Cottam. He was a bit of a recluse; lived in a three bedroom Victorian house where he only used two rooms beside the chickens that lived in the front bedroom. The rest of the house was used for the storage of his many “world treasures” boxes and boxes of exquisite Japanese tea services, vases, carved boxes and swords amongst other things. I first met Harold when I was about nine or 10. I went to visit him with my neighbour, Chris Payne, who knew him. It was then that I found out Harold had been involved in the rescue of survivors of the Titanic. He had been the radio operator on RMS Carpathia, the ship that received the Titanic’s distress signal and subsequently went to its rescue. As a kid, I found Harold extremely interesting and would go to visit him fairly regularly. I’d do yard work and he would pay me in ice cream. There we would sit in his front room or in his garden, me with a bowl of raspberry ripple and he would enthral me with stories of his life. He had sailed the world more than once. He had been on the RMS Carpathia in Istanbul during the Turko Italian War and had been on one of the first ships through the Panama Canal. In the First World War, he had been stationed in Scotland working at a secret relay station picking up German radio transmissions. But it was with his stories of the Titanic (and of his late wife Else) that he always had sadness in his voice. I don’t know how much your readers know about early radio, but in 1912 when the Titanic sank, radio (or wireless as it was then known) was a very new technology. There were no microphones, this was headphones and a Morse code transmitter. On the night of April 15,
timberland 6 inch boots A quiet night on the Carpathia
1912, Harold was getting ready to turn in for the night and was waiting for another ship to reply to a message. While he waited he called up the Cape Cod transmission station and noticed there were several messages waiting for the Titanic and decided to be helpful and pass the messages on to Jack Philips, the wireless operator on the Titanic. Harold actually missed the Titanic’s first distress call as he had removed his headphones to take off his shoes and hang up his coat. When he got his headphones back on he called up the Titanic to check it had received his message only to receive a CQD signal (the forerunner to the modern SOS signal): “Come at once, we’re sinking!” After receiving confirmation from the Titanic, he went and woke up his captain, who then set course at full steam for the Titanic. The Carpathia was a steam side paddlewheeler with a top speed of only 17 knots or 20 mph, so to keep this speed up, the captain ordered all of the ships’ heating and hot water be turned off. It took the Carpathia about four hours to steam the 60 nautical miles to the last known position of the Titanic where it picked up just over 700 survivors. My friend Harold was born in Southwell, Nottinghamshire, and died in Lowdham, Nottinghamshire, about 15 miles apart. In between, he had been the youngest graduate from the British School of Telegraphy at only 17,
timberland 6 inch boots A quiet night on the Carpathia
had seen the world (several times) and had been a major player in the disaster of the century all by the age of 21. Harold retired from the sea at the age of 32 to become a traveling salesman for the Mini Max fire extinguisher company. He was married and had four children. Are there any other Titanic stories out there? RICK PRESCOTT Knutsford

So yeah, I got to go home Wednesday thanks to our governor who stated a cease of work and all education establishments because hurricane Omar was loopy and decided to turn back and pass through Puerto Rico. Everyone got excited when they announced at mid day the message and most people decided to go to their cozy homes, including me. After enjoy playing with my PC and playing with some new mods that Steam released for free I saw the news at 5pm and saw that it was a false alarm from the meteorologist, like always. It got worse when I received calls from friends saying they received an email confirmation saying we had class the next day, so I had to get ready to go to my apartment which was a bitch.

So, I went to see Max Payne yesterday with a friend of mine,

he was bored and there was nothing else to do, and on Thursday they accept the University ID for a discount. I went at 9:35 and the theater was packed since there was not much to do and everyone was seeing something except Beverly Hills Chihuaha lol.

To end this simply the movies sucked ass. I swear I haven’t been so bored in a movie theater before for as long since I saw Elektra years ago. The story changed from the game but it had the original concepts from it. I was hoping for some cool Max Payne moves from the video games and I only saw 2 in the entire film which I hope to God I missed the rest if there were more. The ones I saw were the.

Grandma took a spill at the sand dunes today. Lucy was there too, but unobtrusively, whereas Esther had to have a foot or her face or her tail touching me at all times. It was Such a nice day. I mean, I slept until 11:00, first of all, which is the latest I’ve slept in years and years, but that’s because I stayed up until almost 2:00 on Sunday night, because I wasn’t tired, and didn’t sleep that well when I slept. I guess my body got acclimated to west coast time, which is not good because it made me lay awake a long time last night before I could fall asleep. Hopefully things will return to normal soon.

2) We saw Napoleon Dynamite last week, at Twyla’s house, and man oh man that movie is funny. I’m a little obsessed with it, actually. It’s Brilliant. Another thing I’m a tiny bit obsessed with (in the sense that I love it and want it to be available here) is bubble tea. Have you had it? I had it twice (sesame flavor, both times), at two different places, and the first batch was better. The second batch was way too sweet, but it also tasted more sesame y. The bottom line here is, I want more. That bubble tea site has supplies that can be ordered, and I’m thinking I might have to order me up some bubble tea fixins, because I like it so much I could drink it until I died.

3) I still haven’t had any desserts for a long time I think it was December 6th I knocked off eating the sugar. The exception to this would be that too sweet Bubble Tea; I think it was sweet enough be considered a dessert, but it was not premeditated on my part so I don’t consider it a departure from the plan. Anyway, the no dessert thing is working out great, considering I lost 2 pounds over the holidays with no (and I mean NO) exercise and very few other dietary restrictions. Now that we’re home and will be back at the gym starting tomorrow, I anticipate a great 2005 shedding a monumental defattening that will shock my friends and dismay my enemies. That’s what I’M talking about. Oh yeah.

4) Sunday I made Boy’s second slipper (he loves those butt ass ugly slippers I make, for some reason), to go with the first slipper I made for him several weeks ago. Now he can shut his piehole about them (he’s been a’nagging), and I can go onto other things. I started a devil hat for my sister’s husband after I finished the slipper and made some good progress on it. I’m using the same yarn as for the first hat except I bought the bulky version of the yarn and am using larger needles for this second hat (this is because my brother in law, dog bless him, has an enormous head think Big Head, and then think bigger than that). I think this hat is going to be kick ass.

5) Last weekend I was finally able to remove all the Scotland bruised toe blood from under my left big toenail, but my right big toenail has months and months more to go before it is back to normal. Damn it takes a long time to grow bruised toe blood out. Remember that the next time you’re tempted to wear your shoes too loose and walk a long distance.

6) This cold is driving me nuts and I am officially GROCE. Oh my god, the blowing, the Blowing. I feel guilty going through so many tissues, since they’re made of trees and all, but I also can’t imagine using handkerchiefs during this cold that would be so nasty. Plus I would be going through 10 of them per hour, easy.

7) The whole tsunami thing is so awful I don’t even know where to start with it, but I’m so sad for the people who lost relatives and/or their homes. I can’t even imagine what they’re going through.

Early in her career, Meagan Fitzpatrick had a job as the Ottawa reporter for Dose, a free daily newspaper owned by Canwest Global Communications. wanted me to work from home, but I was living at my parents house, so I really think that would be the best idea, she recalls.

On a whim, Meagan asked if there was a vacant desk she could use at one of offices, either at the Ottawa where she worked prior to joining Dose or at CanWest Parliamentary bureau in downtown Ottawa. By chance, there was an empty desk at the bureau, and so Meagan began hanging her hat there.

CanWest eventually pulled the plug on Dose, I was let go, but I got hired during the same conversation because CanWest Parliamentary bureau took me on, says Meagan. From there, it was on to the CBC in early 2011. why I say if I hadn asked for a desk, I wouldn be where I am today.

now advise young grads: Never be afraid to ask for anything, because the worst you can be told is It never hurts to ask. However, last fall she began filling in for a colleague on maternity leave and was given a broader set of tasks that included live TV reporting and calling in to various local CBC radio shows across the country to give a weekly Ottawa report.

Meagan flourished in her new roles. And why not? She no stranger to trying new challenges that lead her in new directions.

She recalls that it was a summer at the Alumni Review in 2001 that motivated her to consider journalism as a career. made me think, can do this [writing and reporting work] full time, she says.

That realization prompted her to enrol in the Master of Arts program in journalism at Western University, where she in television.

Her most recent challenge has been working at CBC Hong Kong as a correspondent for three months earlier this year dream come true for me, she says.

While she a political reporter here in Canada, in Hong Kong she got to write about a diverse range of topics. is one of the most dynamic places in the world right now, and Hong Kong is considered a gateway to China. Canada relationship with China is developing in many ways. It important for us to be here. she always thrilled to work overseas and hopes to land more such gigs, Meagan local assignments are anything but dull. She loves working on Parliament Hill, where she sometimes dons high heels for Parliamentary scrums. When she does, it hard to miss her. six feet tall, and if my shoes have three inch heels, so be it, she says with a laugh.

As a Parliamentary Press Gallery reporter, Meagan has had some memorable assignments. She covered the Ottawa visits of Barack Obama and newlyweds Prince William and Kate Middleton. And she went on a whirlwind European trip with Prime Stephen Harper countries in four days. the major events Meagan has reported on was the death of New Democratic Party (NDP) leader Jack Layton, who had been her for the 2010 Press Gallery dinner to which reporters bring MPs as their dates. She later wrote extensively about the NDP subsequent leadership campaign and covered the convention at which Tom Mulcair was chosen as the party new leader.

Meagan is passionate both about politics and journalism. a lot of on Parliament Hill and among the reporters. That another reason I love my job. key reason Meagan wanted to work at the CBC was to learn more about online news, which she believes is journalism future. example, Twitter is a great way to find out what the competition is saying. It also a way to interact with our audience. It changes the way a journalist reports. I tweet from a news conference,

black timberlands A Pair of Fashionable and Comfortable Shoes

There is no doubt that many women are troubled by their too thin or too thick feet. They were limited into only wearing a pair of comfortable but not fashionable shoes. Surely, they are jealous of other women with beautiful pumps. And many girls want to have different style shoes to fit their dress or mood in someday. Now, I will recommend a shoe brand to you Christian Louboutin.

In a Louboutin store, there are all styles of pumps, sandals and boots and even flats for the women. Christian Louboutin spring and summer shoes can be classified rounded toe, square toe and sharp toe. A pair of gently rounded toe shoes are worn on the girl’s feet, clever appearance is shown suddenly at the moment. Peep toe, hollow out or empty in the back or bind high heels make your foot skin kiss the air directly and looks like sexy more.

All kinds of colors you can find to suit your dress or mood. There are bright colors and cool colors whatever you love.

Their material varies from leather, velvet, to silk, lizard press grain or twips cloth. These materials are matched with three dimensional flowers, crystal, broken auger, sequins and painted.

Christian Louboutin claims a good pair of shoes help transform a woman’s attitude. The shoe designer whose high heeled designs have become the favorite of a host of celebrities including Sarah Jessica Parker, Victoria Beckham and Kate Moss loves seeing females put on his footwear as knows what a difference they can make.

If you like a feeling of exotic customs you can choose shoes full of exotic patterns, and if you want to make yourself look more gentle and quiet, you can wear a pair of light color shoes. And want to taste the feeling of vacationing in a tropical island? Please change a pair of sandals with tropical flowers printing or three dimensional flower adornment. Then your image and mood will be changed at once. You will walk in the lithe footsteps.

This year, the proportion of thick soles wedge high heels is higher. They are made with a kind of new developed sole for high heels, the secret is they are molded with cork and rubber. Decorated with various lovely and interesting collages, the shoes call comfort and taste together.

In this winter, you will never be worried about your footwear, too. Christian Louboutin has promotes its recent work grandly quite excitedly to us.

How beautiful scene it is! And how beautiful you are! Only imagine the lovely day, can not I help to look forward to the winter coming faster.

timberland online uk A Pair of Boots Les Souliers

timberland classic boat shoe A Pair of Boots Les Souliers

It was read to me from a children’s omnibus during the 1950s in Sheffield, when I lay a bed at nights, and I always wanted it to be repeated again and again by my mother because, being an afflicted child of (presumably) imaginatively straitened, working class parents, I found it imaginatively inexhaustible. It told the story of a pair of old boots that took matters into their own hands one day by going off on their own without a pair of legs to lead them. They were stout, wilful items of well used footwear that chose to please nothing but themselves, forever on the tramp, tramp, tramp. Yes, tramping was their game, on the road to the forever unpredictable excitements of nowhere in particular.

Temperamentally, those boots of Blyton’s have something in common with Van Gogh’s painting. Van Gogh too was rather fond of the imaginative possibilities of old boots, and he painted or drew them on a number of occasions. This one was done fairly early in his relatively short career as a painter, when he was living with his brother Theo in Rue Lepic, devouring subject matter of all kinds. You can tell that his eyes just could not get enough of these old boots, with their gleaming, tough minded studs and riddling, near dancing laces.

Sometimes a painting writhes and squirms before your very eyes, to such an extent that you feel almost uncomfortable in its presence. You find yourself protesting a little. You feel, in some rather ill defined way, that it’s not quite playing fair. Is not painting, you ask yourself, about reflection, slow meditation, gradual, painstaking appraisal that sort of thing? Not here. There is nothing slow about this painting. It is hectic, impromptu, flung down. It almost stinks with the smell of the feet that it bade goodbye to perhaps just seconds before it became an object of that renegade Dutchman’s delightful absorption. It is perfectly possible that Vincent himself had been the recent wearer of these boots he is said to have bought at least one pair from a flea market in Paris.

You appeal for the painting to be still, to calm down a little, but it is not in the business of listening to your appeals. It is in the business of a kind of brutish, no holds barred presentation of itself. It is itself and nothing more. It is not schmoozing with art or elegance. It knows nothing about the embellishment of drawing rooms or the nature of refinement. It is a pair of recently squirmed out of boots, and that’s all there is to be said about it. No wonder that Claribel Cone, when she bought the painting in 1927, wrote rather uncomfortably about her new acquisition to her sister Etta: ‘I am not so pleased with my Van Gogh,’ she confided to her sister from elegantly booted Lausanne “it is so unlike his better (more forceful, more mad style perhaps). And the pair of shoes will not grace my livingroom with beauty however it is a Van Gogh almost certainly Mr V. [Vallotton] says sans doutes.”

Oh dear! Claribel got what she bought which was not a pair of shoes, for all her feigning. It was a pair of unlovely, working man’s boots that Van Gogh painted during a year when he painted about one hundred other paintings too. He was getting into his stride as a painter. He was devouring subjects with his eye. This is such an act of devouring, this pouncing upon this pair of boots, voraciously, and laying them out (with just a hint perhaps in the direction of comedy) upon what looks like a piece of lovely blue fabric. What is a pair of battered old boots doing mingling with a piece of blue fabric? Would the fabric not recoil in horror? And there they sit, close to being animal in their atmosphere see how bendy those uppers are, how they loll sideways so that we see the delicious ochre of their inside leather. We see so clearly how Vincent attacked them, feverishly, with his brush strokes, from all directions, across, up, down, sometimes wildly scrubbily. That fabric looks like a violent sea. These boots had miles to cover yet, and always so gracelessly.


Vincent van Gogh (1853 1890) came, quite late on, to painting, and his mature work was done in an almighty rush over a period of about three years. The fact that his work almost always has an air of gasping, compulsive energy about it is explained by that very fact.

timberland clothes uk A novel approach to Magic vs

Seth Davis sheepishly admits he didn watch the 1979 NCAA basketball title game between Magic Johnson Michigan State monsters and Larry Bird Indiana State underdogs, which took place three weeks before his ninth birthday. I did know it was coming. came at a time when many wondered about the future of the sport, on both the college and pro level. UCLA dominance under John Wooden was over; the NBA had few marketable stars and something of an image problem. According to the subtitle of Davis new book, we can look back 30 years, to when this perfect storm occurred, and readily admit that it transformed basketball.

March Went Mad ($26, Henry Holt And Company, 336 pages) goes back to before the March 26, 1979, date of the game that NBC telecast with Dick Enberg, Billy Packer and Al McGuire (with Bryant Gumbel on the pregame). Even with our selective memory, we remember that the contest wasn even the most important event in the world that day hours before tip off in Salt Lake City, President Jimmy Carter reached a Mid East peace agreement with Egypt Anwar Sadat and Israel Menachem Begin.

Yet it was the beginning of a transforming day.

Even without permission from either Johnson or Bird to do this book they each have their own personal profit generating reasons Davis cobbled newspaper accounts and nearly 100 interviews to put into context how things fell into place.

goal here was that even though this is about history, I want it to read not like a textbook but a novel, said Davis. all know the impact of the game, and it an unbelievable story, but I had no idea how good of a story it was with the four main people involved Magic, Bird, (Michigan State coach) Jud Heathcote and (Indiana State coach) Bill Hodges until I pieced it together. no revisionist history here with a game that registered a 24.6 Nielsen rating, still the highest ever for a basketball game on any level and unlikely ever to be possibly reached again. This was at a time when ESPN was six months away from flipping on its switch, and the Big East Conference hadn been launched.

Davis values conversations he had with Enberg and Packer, which helped put into context what the game was all about then. Along with interviewing such media folk at Don Ohlmeyer, Gumbel, Bob Ryan, Dick Vitale, Dave Kindred, Jim Simpson and Chet Simmons, Davis also includes a telling quote from Bill Rasmussen, the founder of ESPN:

I look back at that game, the hype looks bigger than it really was, because there weren as many ways to hype a game back then, Rasmussen says. you imagine today, between the way CBS covers the tournament and how ESPN covers everything, what it would be like? Everybody would know Larry Bird shoe size, the length of Johnson shoestrings. You might expect an old guy to say this, but it kind of a shame. as you might expect Davis to say it not such a shame.

a reality, he said. sure in a lot of ways, if you were to talk to an older gentleman in 1979 about the way things were done in the s, he say it was better back then.

the price we pay for progress, but there a lot to gain from it, too. I watch high school games on TV now. I Mr. TiVo with college basketball so much that my wife can get to see Idol. I download games on my computer. But I haven lost the delayed gratification and sense of history, and during the NCAA tournament, so many times we see a player or a team for the first time, and it ends with that one game scenario.

the days (of 1979) won happen again. There some magic and mystery to delayed gratification. But the fact it won happen again sure helps me with my mortgage. LOCKERT (1965 2009)
