Samuel Abrahams, director, Blink by Staff September 10, Abrahams directed the short film Offline Dating, which features his friend Tom attempting to find a date offline. Tell us about the film. One was that I had been looking for the right kind of project to explore how technology might be affecting the way in which people interact with each other in real life. In many ways, my short film Connect is its companion piece. Another reason was that I cut my teeth shooting observational documentaries and I was keen to remind myself of those skills. Getting back behind the camera was a lot of fun and helped give the film the immersive and immediate quality I was looking for. Finally, my previous shorts had all gone the more traditional route of festival screenings and distribution, meaning they had never been made publicly available online. So I was interested in making a short to release on the internet in the hope of reaching a less niche audience. From the outset, the premise of the film was to make an online film about offline dating. What was the most surprising thing that happened during the shoot?

While they were there they had the opportunity to heal a man who had been lame since birth Acts 3: As a crowd grew around them and the formerly lame man, Peter took the opportunity to present the gospel to the astonished throng. In so doing, he first denied that the apostles had any power to accomplish the healing that they had just witnessed Acts 3: In other cases it may reflect a dominant theme, often one that is well known and thus point to an earlier event.
I will make you into a great nation and I will bless you and I will make your name great, so that you will exemplify divine blessing. Moreover, he in turn was so to live as to be a source through whom divine blessings could be observed and desired by others. He is both a receptacle for the divine blessing and a transmitter of that blessing. In a bit later account we are told that when Abram did finally settle down in Canaan, the Lord reaffirmed his promise concerning that land Gen As he did so, God declared, I will make your descendants like the dust of the earth, so that if anyone is able to count the dust of the earth, then your descendants also can be counted.
Get up and walk throughout the land, for I will give it to you. All of these promises were ratified in a formal covenant Gen.

Sandy Rubenstein pops up in Miami with a young lady He may not be a rapist — but Sanford Rubenstein sure loves some kinky sex. A gal pal who recently dated the showboating civil rights lawyer described him as a creepy, lust-crazed geezer who tried to ply her with drugs and begged her to stage an orgy, just so he could watch her have sex with a gang of other men.
He implored her to have the porn-style romp in a misguided attempt to extend their failing relationship, after she tried to break up with him. The couple saw each other at least once a week, having dinners out or lounging at his penthouse. The most action Rubenstein ever got was when he would pleasure himself while spending nights in bed with his something gal pal. But any chance at rekindling romance died last Saturday night, when Rubenstein suggested that she take drugs.
Rubenstein referred comment to his attorney. Rubenstein does not intend to respond to each of these ridiculous allegations from a woman apparently scorned, other than to label them as patently false.

Recently, I noticed that so many of my single mates had become hooked on swiping left or right, on apps like Tinder, Happn, and Bumble. These apps have become the default way to meet people — but where does that leave the good old fashioned way? Have we lost our confidence, or are we just not interested anymore? I wanted to explore what could happen, in one weekend, if we invested more time and energy into meeting new people — in real life.
What were you personally looking to achieve with the film? One evening, Tom and I were discussing him being newly single, whilst downloading Happn on his phone. Three days later we were filming, and now four weeks later, the film is finished.

Offline Dating Are you a man? Do you like the whimsical, poetic idea of meeting people at random, in the street, as if you were in a romantic movie? We need to talk. The other issue — and this is where it gets bleak — is that women have to be nice, or at least polite to random dudes accosting them, as otherwise they may be putting themselves in danger.

The Jebusites are reported as still living in Jerusalem 1: The reference in Although the historical books contain no reference to the actual destruction of Shiloh, Jeremiah 7: If Samuel was the author, than the audience was either the generation of Saul who wanted a king to rule over them 1 Sam 8 , or perhaps king Saul himself.
It is an opportunity for us to reflect on the language and ideas that represented each year. So, take a stroll down memory lane to remember all of our past Word of the Year selections. Change It wasn’t trendy , funny, nor was it coined on Twitter , but we thought change told a real story about how our users defined Unlike in , change was no longer a campaign slogan. But, the term still held a lot of weight. Here’s an excerpt from our Word of the Year announcement in The national debate can arguably be summarized by the question:
Why Samuel Abrahams’ ‘offline dating’ short film is so flawed
The name “David” appears to be connected with the Hebrew verbal root dwd, “to love,” so his name probably means “beloved. First, he was a musician, “the sweet psalmist of Israel” 2 Samuel As a youth, he practiced the harp on the sheep fields of Bethlehem. As a young man he became a court musician for Israel’s first King — Saul. But as he grew, he began to write down the inspired songs or psalms that he wrote, so that his own compositions fill nearly half of the Book of Psalms.
But more than just a prolific lyricist and musician, David was a worshipper.
Donate Barris was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He attended Drexel University where he was a columnist at the student newspaper The Triangle. He graduated in Barris soon became a music industry figure. He also wrote or co-wrote some of the music that appeared on his game shows. His ABC bosses suggested that he quit his programming job and become a producer himself. The next year Barris produced The Newlywed Game for the same network.
The combination of the newlywed couples’ humorous candor and host Bob Eubanks’ exuberant sly questioning made the show another hit for Barris – and to date the longest lasting of any developed by his company, running for 19 full years on ‘first run’ TV, network and syndicated. The engaging but somewhat shy Barris rarely appeared on camera.
But Barris became a public figure in a big way in , when he produced and hosted the talent contest spoof The Gong Show. The show’s cult stature far outstripped the two years it spent on NBC and the four years it ran in syndication — Barris’ jokey, bumbling personality, his accentuated hand-clapping between sentences , and his catch-phrases made him the antithesis of the smooth TV host.

Uproar in Clio’s Library: The Case Of Dr. The case has already drawn in dozens of professional historians among them some of the most prominent names in the historiography of modern Germany , been publicized in the American Historical Review, and resulted in a formal protest to the American Historical Association’s committee on professional affairs.
It involves nothing less than charges of massive scholarly fraud, distortion, fabrication and lying, in a book about the fall of the Weimar Republic and the financial sources of the Nazis’ rise to power. It has caused a number of historians to question publicly what has become of standards of scholarship, verification, and ethics in their profession. And it has raised the question whether a closer examination of other texts of modern history might yield results as disconcerting as have come up in this case.
The charges revolve around Dr. Abraham is currently an untenured professor at Princeton. His application for tenure has been turned down, although his employment was extended for another year. The book grew out of his Ph. Submitting it to Princeton for publication in , he revised it somewhat after it was sent around to two scholars for a reading — a standard practice.
One of those scholars, Prof. Gerald Feldman of the University of California at Berkeley, adjudged the revised version “vastly improved” and “very sound.

After years of dating frustration, Montana resident Debbie Best thought her luck had finally changed when she met a handsome antiques dealer from Florida through an online dating site. But then her newfound boyfriend started asking for money. A lot of it. In , the FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center received 5, complaints from victims of so-called “romance scammers” — criminals who scan online dating sites, chat rooms and social networking sites for potential victims.
