Why are men (sometimes) such jerks?
Who is supposed to tell them to mind their manners? Who is supposed to teach them to control their hormones, and behave themselves. Obey their parents and teachers, respect women, protect minorities and vulnerable. Honor their country?See Ethical AtheistNOW, in the news, as if to prove to Democrats that even much respected LIBERALS can pull the same stunts as Republicans, Congressman Anthony Weiner makes a fool of himself, right in the glare of world spotlight. Brilliant but highstrung Democrat Anthony Weiner, who barely a year ago married his glamorous friend Huma Abedin, has had a porn fetish (apparently for many years), but now he has got caught, pants down (so to speak).
And his wife, the beautiful and intelligent Huma Abedin, surely feels hurt, betrayed, dishonored. Despite her stoic loyalty outwardly, how can she not feel deeply wounded by the pathetic behavior of her otherwise redeemable husband. Simple ethics and courtesy would have told Mr. Weiner to rein in his hormones. Doesn't the good book say to treat your wife with respect, to honor her, to uplift her?
What is happening to our country when male celebreties and athletic stars and yes, prominent politicians behave like spoilt adolescents. The public is often exasperated, yet how many average citizens are themselves guilty? The law itself seems a bit unsure what to do, not wanting to appear draconian. Yet at the same time obliged not to condone such atrocious behavior.
America needs a turnaround. "Ye stiffnecked and uncircumcized (of heart). As your fathers did, so do ye." Do we need a thoroughgoing scrubbing, a cleansing  starting on the inside, and working outward.
The law seems at a loss what to do with a husband like Weiner, but the imagination can sure come up with a scenario. Huma Abedin is a worker, a 'smarty pants' and a brave and patriotic woman. Proverbs 31 would call her a VIRTUOUS WOMAN  a woman of valor. Please see Woman of Valor :: Mulieris dignitatem (1988)So what went wrong? To me, Mister Weiner is a fool, a noval. Picture him held accountable by a domestic "court" of hardboiled righteous feminists. Let's try a little alternative sentencing for the spoiled and juvenilebehaving husband. Take a page from the Taliban and try it on for size.
Instead of a slap on the wrist for the porn pervert (literally caught with his pants down), let's save the marriage with a dose of tough love for the sinner. Thirty lashes with a wet noodle.
Okay. Okay. I know it would never happen in real life. Nor is Huma Abedin ready to give up on the jerk. (oops, I mean the Honorable Mr. Weiner.) What a brave woman she is, a woman of valor (chayil).
I just rather suspect a lot of "men" in this country are (like Congressman Weenie boy) something less than real men. I think a lot of "men" in this country probably need a bit of a wakeup call, or maybe a dose or two of tougher love than they've been getting.
A superficial apology is not what the Huma Abedin's of America need or deserve. They need REAL respect. They deserve a REAL man.

The beauty of Mathematics
Look Within ~ the Power of Intuitive Genius
You have within you a divine Inner Light always waiting for you to only listen
According to Jitatmananda, Swami Vivekananda told his disciples, The truths discovered by the rishis of science (quantum mechanics and nuclear physics, sub atomic particles) and remember 95% of the greatest discoveries of modern science came from meditation. Of the discoveries of Einstein, most of them I must say are based on pure intuitive glimpse. Einstein himself had admitted one by one.Remember the fi Bonacci sequence ?In the Bhagavad Gita we read, "Those who aspire to the state of yoga should seek the self in inner solitude through meditation. With body and mind controlled they should constantly practice onepointedness, free from expectations and attachment to material possessions." See Wisdom of the East
Susantha Goonatilake writes that the development of the fiBonacci sequence "is attributed in part to Pingala (200 BC), later being associated with Virahanka (c. 700 AD), Gopāla (c.1135 AD), and Hemachandra (c.1150)".
De Divina Proportione
Or, the Divine Proportion. Also known as the Golden Ratio, the Golden Proportion, the Golden Section, etc.
F
It was probably da Vinci who first called it thesectio aurea The Golden Ratio
Only recently have mathmeticians assigned the Greek letter Phi to represent it.
Phi is intrinsically related to the number 5
half the square root of five plus one half equals phi
For every beauty there is an eye somewhere to see it.
For every truth there is an ear somewhere to hear it.
For every love there is a heart somewhere to receive it.

Fermat's Last Theorem: Unlocking the Secret of an Ancient Mathematical Problem
Canst thou bind the sweet influences of Pleiades, or loose the bands of Orion? Canst thou bring forth Mazzaroth in his season? or canst thou guide Arcturus with his sons? Knowest thou the ordinances of heaven? canst thou set the dominion thereof in the earth? 
Job 38:3133
This "god proof" formula, below, of Leonhard Euler (17071783) unites the five most important symbols of mathematics: 1, 0, π, e and i (the square root of minus one). This union was regarded as mystic union containing representatives from each branch of the mathematical tree: arithmetic is represented by 0 and 1, algebra by the symbol i, geometry by π (pi), and analysis by the transcendental e. Harvard mathematician Benjamin Pierce said about the formula, "That is surely true, it is absolutely paradoxical; we cannot understand it, and we don't know what it means, but we have proved it, and therefore we know it must be the truth." (Edward Kasner and James Newman in Mathematics and the Imagination)
e^{iπ} + 1 = 0 Proving the unprovable  which itself suggests that only God could have created a universe where e, i, and pi were so prevalent and all tied so neatly together into a single equation. The whole thing emerged from the EulerDiderot rivalry.
I thought this was fascinating... The image is created using a TSP algorithm. It's called the traveling salesman, a way of plotting a route for maximum coverage. Mathematician: Robert Bosch
