French Jews Still In ‘Wait-And-See Mode | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it
Most of the Parisian Jews who had considered making aliyah before a fatal terrorist attack on the city’s Hyper Cacher supermarket six months ago still think about moving to Israel, but few have taken the step, said a Manhattan expatriate who returned earlier this month from a visit to relatives in France.

What's Hiding In The Deep, Dark Web?

What's Hiding In The Deep, Dark Web? | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it

..despite Google’s web prowess, it and other search engines have a very limited view of what’s out there. (Some researchers say that search engines only show about 1% of what’s actually available online!).

Deep Web, Dark Web, Hidden Web... synonyms for the data locked away beyond the reach of search engine crawlers.  You have to find the site and dig in using the local tools.  Despite a bit of fear mongering, this is a clever article with an interesting infographic. 


Note: This article recommends Truthfinder.  Be aware that Truthfinder is not free.  They hide their fee structure. You won't know the bill until you've completed your search query.  Caveat Emptor.

The mission statement says it all: " Put simply, our mission is to set music free."

Kym Reinstadler, SCN Feature Writer's curator insight, June 29, 9:57 PM

I’m always surprised to meet people who seem to have no exposure to classical music beyond watching Bugs Bunny cartoons. Loony Tunes and Merrie Melodies probably used classical music because (1) it’s awesome, and (2) it’s copyrights are expired, meaning the composers and their descendants are no longer getting paid. Music adds so much to any production. When you’re creating, it’s tempting to lay down some favorite contemporary music from your iTunes library. If you post the project on social media, it’s going to be flagged for a copyright claim and you’ll have to take it down. If you love music, don't steal it because the artists down get paid. Here’s an online library of free music it’s O.K. to use. A lot of it is classical. Using it for your YouTube projects can help introduce viewers who have outgrown Bugs Bunny to some of the best music ever written!
