Today’s Holiday: Simchat Torah

Today’s Holiday:
Simchat Torah

This Jewish holiday, which follows Sukkot, celebrates the annual completion of the public reading of the Torah and the beginning of a new reading cycle. The hand-lettered scrolls of the Torah are removed from the Ark (a box-like container) and paraded around the synagogue amidst singing and dancing. Simchat Torah means “rejoicing in the law,” which is as good a description as any of what takes place on this day. To be chosen to read the final verses of the last book, Deuteronomy, or to read the opening verses of the first book, Genesis, is considered a great honor.

Article of the Day: Prepulse Inhibition

Article of the Day:
Prepulse Inhibition

Prepulse inhibition is a neurological phenomenon in which a weaker pre-stimulus—a prepulse—inhibits the reaction of an organism to a subsequent startling stimulus. The reduction of the startle reflex reflects the ability of the nervous system to adapt to a strong sensory stimulus when a preceding weaker signal provides it advance warning. The phenomenon has been detected in numerous species, including humans. Disruption of prepulse inhibition has been reported in patients with what diseases?

Watch “Not alone…” on YouTube

She sees him laying in the bed alone tonight
The only thing a touching him is a crack of light
Pieces of her hair are wrapped around and ’round his fingers
He reaches for her side for any sign of her that lingers
And she says you are not alone
Laying in the light
Put out the fire in your head
And lay with me tonight
One of them bullets went straight for the jugular vein
There were people running,
A flash of light then everything changed
Nothing really matters in the end you know all the worries sever
Don’t be afraid for me my friend
One day we all fall down forever
She says you are not alone
Laying in the light
Put out the fire in your head
And lay with me tonight
The wedding date was June just like any other bride
She loved him like no one before and it was good to be alive
Sometimes that can slip away as fast as any fingers through your hands
So you let time forgive the past and go and make some other plans
You are not alone
Laying in the light
Put out the fire in your head
And lay with me tonight
You are not alone
Laying in the light
Put out the fire in your head
And lay with me tonight
