Vayikra: A Book of Love | Torah In Motion
Perhaps Man’s greatest fear is his ultimate irrelevance, that we really don’t make a difference and that in the greater scheme of things, our lives are for naught.

Thaw Frozen Meat With a Little Vinegar
My freezer is an inefficient piece of garbage, and any steak, chop, or chicken thigh I freeze ends up enrobed with a layer of frost. The meat is technically edible, but it does not taste that good.

Delete These Malware-Filled Android Apps Aimed at Kids
Once again, a batch of Android apps managed to make their way onto the Google Play Store and infect more than one million devices with malware. I don’t mean to be glib about it; it’s a problem, and it’s happening with enough frequency, and affecting enough people, that it feels almost kind of commonplace at this point. If you download random apps you’ve never heard of, or apps that haven’t haven’t been critically reviewed, even if they have a lot of downloads and user reviews, you’re taking a risk.
