If I go offline for unknown period of time, well... It means disc C died completely...
I am doing now my last backup...

Disc C keeps shrinking and adding dead sectors more than 15 per month, for the past 2 months. Few blue screens...
I tried to identify the problem; Starting with antivirus scan, made major cleanup for disc C, leaving only the most necessary stuff... But it did not help. I have used system restore - did not help. I used Windows disc repair - did not help. With the wise advise of my Boyfriend I have installed useful programs to help me and identify the problems and monitor my comp.: WinDirStart and HDDguardian... Did few times defrag... And conclusion is inevitable, my disc C is going to die soon... So I will contact DELL and hope for the best, I hope my warranty still covers that.

If not, then well, I am screwed. :|

I'd love to make an art-trade with you, but I am afraid it will take a long while, I am loaded with studies and work.
So if you can be a bit patient I'll gladly do this. :)

Sorry, 1 more question

so In a society aimed for jews, how do you avoid discrimination against   Arabs and Ethiopians?
When you think of it as a religion, but how are jews a race when the Hebrews were dispersed around the world?
i don't like branding people as anything, like in the us, mexican-american, african-american,Native American 
but what do they call the whites, just Americans? Same thing in Israel and Europe, why is that?

I am not sure what you ask here... It seems messed up...
I'll try to answer.

Arabs and Ethiopians in Jewish society regarded differently.
From one hand - some of them are assimilating slowly. Ethiopians more, because they are regard themselves as Jews, and it is also the reason they were brought to Israel.
Unfortunately most of them were brought from villages that never knew what a modern world is like and the older generations have great difficulties blending in, including learning Hebrew. The children and their young are assimilating like other second generations from other diaspora, while retaining the traditions they brought with them. They opened shops, barbers shops, even pubs and restaurants with Ethiopian food.
Some of them marry Ashkenazi Jews and others, and not only among themselves. This tendency is more freequent in the last past few years, although still not very common. They work and study with other Jews all across the country. There are also few programs that encourage the Ethiopian youngsters apply to universities - they get help both financially and with the studies.

On the other hand... Sometimes there is discrimination... Like for lesser brand. Many of them are poorly educated, and some can't even read - the elders mostly. They don't have many skills which are required in a modern society, so many of them work as cleaners or in jobs alike. In some cities there were few scandals about separation in schools and neighborhoods... There are many poor neighborhoods. Most occasions when family fail to cope with their lives and father kills the mother or children are among their population...
And the most unpleasant - we have many refugees from Sudan and other countries. Most of them illegal. Many of them try to survive on our behalf, because they have no rights. Some of them rape, and attack people with knives to steal their belongings, mostly women, steal bikes. Sometimes Israelis, who are angry about the refugees problem let themselves humiliate the Ethiopian, that have nothing to do with them, just because they are black too and they can not see the difference, although there is some difference in face structure and colour - for white people it is difficult to recognize it.

The Arabs - it's complicated. And it's completely different story. They never became part of our society, because each of us identifies themselves differently. There is a tension between us, unseen and unspoken hostility or fright. Many of them are working with us side by side - but we usually have difficulties befriending and trusting each other. We fear each other. It happened before, not once that those who considered Israeli citizens made unexpected terror attacks... Also the Jews were not nice all the time... We did many mistakes... I guess everyone to blame for that.
But also their way of life is more traditional, that makes it even harder for them to assimilate. They don't want to. Their very sense of individuality is their family and the tribal way of management of their villages (the Arabs). Those who are not Muslims but Christians, usually strongly hold to their differences from the Muslim Arabs and Jews, they define themselves both by being Arabic and a Christian.

Due to major trust problems - many Arabs work within their society, and don't pay Israeli taxes but also have very low salaries.
Those who do seek employment in Israeli companies can be often rejected.
Also their schooling system is independent mostly and the level is very low. They do get help to get along in Universities, like Ethiopians, but even if you finished a degree it does not promise you a workplace that suits your profession, and most of them go back to their society anyway, unless you are a doctor or a nurse. There are many Arab nurses, both men and women.
Hebrew for many of them considered as foreign language and many of them have difficulties speaking it...

I am not going to answer the rest. You ask way too many questions at once. Questions that there are no short answers for and not very well formulated. I usually am not very found of speaking all that much about the subject since it is very time consuming. And sometimes unpleasant.
Sorry.

Thanks for clearing it up and sadly I'm not the best Typer on a smartphone, should have apologized in advanced about the structure
I just get a bit paranoid about ethnic tension at times, because I am used to seeing blacks and Hispanics get shot by the police..a lot for no reason at all in the United States
I ask a lot of questions I know :p it is a really bad habit, when I was younger I would put people to sleep
But thanks for making it clear because I have family in Israel.
Hebrew is one of those languages you have to grow up in a society that speaks it to speak it right, has to be embedded in you!
Though for some reason I just look into random languages to learn.
I am leaving politics now, recent events made me stop caring after what happened in Florida, I only have a care for art, so thanks for answering my last question
Mysygenation is bad with the wrong groups
Besides Islamic Arabs will always cause tension, look at what they do to each other everyday.

There is nothing wrong about asking questions. As they said in the university "question everything", so did  Einstein, one of the greatest scientists. It is important to ask questions, so you will educate yourself, and be curious and clever, original and innovative.
But I guess being young also means being very impulsive. Such sensitive subject need to be cautiously approached, preferably with tact and proper writing - so you will be well understood.

On the other hand I did mention few times I do not enjoy the subject, so asking a question here and there is ok, but not that many and that frequently. Maybe there are other people who would be more eager to discuss these issues, I am not just one of them. I used to be like you when I was 16. But I have different interests now, and I am tired of the subject as we have to live through this every day...

I have no idea what happened in Florida. I guess it's nothing good...

Our police does not kill people like that, but they mock people time to time, Arabs too, because of trust issues. There was an occasion with Ethiopians recently who were humiliated needlessly by the police. I don't know how many occasions there are. I was humiliated myself as well, when I came to Israel, they would call me in school "stinky Russian go back to Russia". I guess many kids are stupid and cruel at certain age...
But also what I see now, is a lot of kids, like 10 year olds, play and walk together black and white. Also we never had this issue with slavery in Israel, so I guess our initial state is much better.
The big problem now are the illegal immigrants...

This misogyny and dislike comes from misunderstanding the people because they are different somehow. And instead of trying to get to know each other, people intuitively try to hold unto those who are alike them, rather different. People dislike and fear differences - that is why we have violence all across the world. Because everyone is different in a way.

That is great to be curious and learn random languages. My boyfriend tries to learn French just as a hobby, and when he was at school he tried to learn Japanese, without any particular reason but "I think it's awesome". I try to learn Spanish although I am not very dedicated. My cousin tried to learn German, because he liked Rumshtein songs as a teenager!!! Some kids in Israel know Spanish because they love Hispanic telenovelas, actually that is how I got interested myself!

Knowing many languages is great. Because it means you can communicate with different people, and cultures - it is good for coming to understanding, having relations, befriending and even business. Multilingual people have great deal of advantage over the rest. So it does not matter which language you study. And while doing so, you should keep in mind that the only commitment you should make is to yourself, because you are the one who eventually will benefit from it. That is what I always try to tell my English student, who is 12 years old. ;)
I guess you can learn any language if you want, the question is how serious you are about it - this is alone will be what determines your success. Of course living in a society that speaks this very language makes it easier, but it is possible to learn a new language alone.


Don't be discouraged. Your hobbies are yours. If they interest you, go for it. If you changed your mind, it's ok too. But don't give up on them just because "some stranger" said this and that. Have the right reasons for changing your mind - and the right reasons are you own reasons and not what others say. You should listen, though, think about what they say and consider it - but only to people who have your best interest in their minds - like family and close friends.

Sorry, if I was a bit too harsh, I hope you are not hurt.
