My Thought is the Question:  Why does "healthier" organic food comes wrapped in non-recyclable plastic? 

Speaking of plastic wrapped food, why would anyone wrap coconuts in plastic? Yeah, I know, because they have a really fragile soft skin and plastic is there to protect it.

I saw an article about toothbrushes and plastic waste. What did people use for toothbrushes before plastic was common? @hasanhh do you know?

When that question came up in elementary school (while studying early America) the teacher and our parents said people used their fingers. A lot of the kids already 'knew' this. l didn't. Then later, the old hay-seed with a straw in his mouth was how many people did it by chewing it around.

Muhammed -(صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم).s. used sawak (spelling?)

When l was 'in', there were still some men that used whatever twig they found in the bush as we moved around.

In North America, where the tree is common, dogwood twigs were used by natives to clean their teeth. You can still use them today :) not sure about the rest of the world... But I would think other places had trees whose twigs were good for brushing.

The miswak (miswaaksiwaksewakArabicسواك‎ or مسواك) is a teeth cleaning twig made from the Salvadora persica tree (known as arāk, أراك, in Arabic). It is reputed to have been used over 7000 years ago.[1] The miswak's properties have been described thus: "Apart from their antibacterial activity which may help control the formation and activity of dental plaque, they can be used effectively as a natural toothbrush for teeth cleaning. Such sticks are effective, inexpensive, common, available, and contain many medical properties".[2] It also features prominently in Islamic hygienical jurisprudence.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Miswak

Islamic medicine includes several instructions, which would be helpful in advancement of Muslims if being followed. Some of these instructions are related to different health issues. Miswak or Arak tree (Salvadora persica) belongs to the Salvadoraceae family,

Miswak is AMAZING
You have to try it and you  will see for yourself.

It will even heal damage. It is usuable for the whole mouth not only teeth.

One session and you will notice much whiter teeth, not fake like with some products today but actually getting beter oral heatth.

There are even other benefits than only for oral health; for example it will improve memory.

Miswak can sometimes be bought for like 1$. It can be used for many hours every day. One Miswak will stay a long time.
It is also according to Islam the correct way for brushing, if one can.

The Miswak of the Prophets is a stick of the Olive Trees, according to a Hadith. The Seal of Prophets also used this tree.

@حسين

So did you end up doing the haka? If not, I can teach you? Sounds good?

Here's a picture of the New Zealand team doing it.

Scary, cute, or both? 

It's a new model of a baby T. Rex. They say a juvenile would be about the size of a turkey and covered in downy feathers. It would gain about 6 lbs per day for 13 years (Imagine how much it had to eat to accomplish that! Yikes!) and would reach maturity after 20 years, though most didn't survive the first year. 

It reminds me somewhat of a praying mantis. Probably the eyes.

Muslims need to stop feeling ashamed if they go to a counsellor. It's a good thing to let out all our worries to someone who'll offer us professional advice. Even if you feel that you have no mental issues, it's totally normal to go to a counsellor.

I never thought teaching unitary method to a child would be so difficult.

Uni = 1

Do the work around whatever 1 is chosen by the problem.

l looked at a video: lf 20 pens cost Rs 400, what does 1 cost?  Rs 400 divided by 20 pens =   Rs 20/pen  (please note that units carry through)

Then it asked the question:  lf 20 pens cost Rs 400, what does 30 pens cost? The video showed 2 out of the 3 ways to work this.

1] Since 1 pen is Rs 20, then 30pens = 30pens x Rs 20 = Rs-pens 600

2] OR :cry:   Rs400 x 30 pens all divided by 20-pens =  Rs-pens 1200 divided by 20pens = Rs 600

2b]  Rs400 x 30pens all divided by 20 pens = cancelling zeros --> Rs400 x 3pens/2pens = Rs 600 [the way l was learned]

3] Just make the observation that for 20 pens is Rs400 and 30 pens is half-again more than 20 pens --> Rs400 + half again more = Rs 600

Now, there is a 4th way: graph it. Chose whichever X-axis and Y-axis you wish for each, then plot 1 pen intersecting Rs 20, 2 pens plotted to intersect 40 . . . ad juri . . . 

then when completed, follow the Pen-axis over to 30, then go to the line and then move (left or down depending on how your axies are graphed) and find Rs 600. But this proceedured is first week algebra, l do not believe your child is there (old enough) yet.

Easy, right?

Footnote Question: Hey, star. Aren't you glad l am not scheduled to do your brain surgery?  :grin:

@hasanhh thank you so much. We were doing this sum where 4 pears cost Rs.3 and we had to find how much can we buy for Rs.15.So I try to explaining to her 

Rs. 3 = 4 pears

Rs. 1= 4/3 pears

and from there she was totally lost. 'What's 4/3 pear?' ,'who even buys 4/3 pears' 'what is the meaning of 4/3 pears'

She got a lousy mathematics teacher this year and little missy's been acting very difficult whenever I try to teach her maths.

:shock: You can't do a workable arithmetic ratio without following the units.

Given: 4 pears for Rs 3.

Find: How many pears for Rs 15?

Solution:  Rs 15 divided by Rs 3 = 5; so to get back to Rs15 you need to x5; Ergo the number of pears for Rs15 is 5x4pears = 20 pears

She isn't at ratios yet, which is more formal, so l'II skip that one.

So it is Sunday and l decided to watch a movie. l put it on the wrong channel and left the room. Coming back there was this trashy garbage on my TV screen. Looked like some (Los)Vegas showgirls prancing . . . it was miss universe 2019.

I've apparently typed this phrase a few times:

"Pluto is my favorite dwarf planet."

When I type the first word, my phone suggests them one by one to complete the sentence.

Ok, I have never denied being easily amused.

l watched a 2+ hour documentary Sunday on an old TV adventure series. (Which my one sister and l talked about 50 years later --in detail)

Anyway, l was doing some follow-up reading and noticed that two or three plots are about somebody who wants to rule the World, World domination . . .

l thought: "Now who in the H___ would want a job like that? Spendng 14 to 18 hours a day on paperwork."

This isn't very close to where I live, but it's actually quite terrifying.

Want a real scary?

The US bombs lRI and someone else 'blows up' the eleven to eighteen or more million IETs (illegal entries) inside our borders.

Our cities will literally burn.

After which we will have a reactionary, fascist state.   :cry:

This foul warmongering president can't be removed from office fast enough. 

Speaking of illegal, did you hear about Our President's planned executive order declaring Judaism a nationality? I saw a news article about that just a short while ago. The intent is allegedly to "crack down" on Israel boycott, but the attack on the First Amendment is less worrisome than the fact that he's calling into question the American-ness of another entire sector of the population, further empowering violent white supremacists.

The better article l found is in Jerusalem Post:  https://www.jpost.com/Diaspora/Antisemitism/Trump-expected-to-issue-executive-order-against-antisemitism-on-campus-610540 

As this article points out, there is a lack of clarity in what this will mean.

Separately, l can think of other pitfalls. This is two decades old in my info, but a Reform rabbi told me that Orthodox and Conservative Judaism do not recognize them as jewish. [l have read this also as pertains to lsraeIi citizenship and 'right of return'.]  Secondly, what about converts -like his daughter? Where do they place in all this?  Thirdly, what is "an antisemetic  remark"? Criticizing lsrael's policies towards the Palestinians, lran or Lebanon? Fourth, in college when this subject came up, Semetic also includes west-Asian Arabs. Fifth, what about ethnic Jews that converted to chr!stian or reverted to lslam?

l thought of another offhand, but forgot while typing. :sorry:
