In unofficial competition with Bratslavia to be the capital city of Slovakia (as Baltimore competes with Washington, D.C.), Košice is a major-enough city to get some notice even outside of Slovakia. Like Suwałki in Poland Russia, Košice was the capital city of its own district in Austria Hungary.
Families in the Košice Jewish community included the Yoshua Rusnak Family, whose patriarch helped lead the Zionist Conference there in 1913. Sadly, the family lost many members during the Holocaust when the Nazis invaded then-Kassa, Hungary.

A Slavic and Ashkenazic Jewish surname meaning "new" (e.g., "Novy"), "Nov-ak" could also be a play on "Nov akh" or "frutiful brother" (Hebrew).
Bearers of the "Novak" surname include actress Kim Novak (who took "Novak" as her stagename), columnist and cancer victim Robert Novak, the psychotic astronaut and honorably-discharged Navy servicewoman Lisa Nowak, and Marysia "Maria" Novakova Rusnakova (1855-c. 1907) -- who was married to Jakub Rusnak (a member of the late Kosice, Slovakia Jewish Rusnaks) and was the paternal grandmother of Sgt. and Veterans of Foreign Wars Commander Carl Stephen Rusnak (January 2, 1922 - November 7, 1999; US Army, WW2, European Theater, honorably discharged after the war). By the way, Maria's relative Leopold Novak was an early victim of the Holocaust in then-Czechoslovakian Zlata Idka: he was murdered in a then-Aranydka mine in 1936.

Both the correct and a supposedly-archaic name for "Islam", Mohammedism is actually the proper name of the religion of Mohammed.
The politically-incorrect and scary part was that Usama bin Laden was an Orthodox follower and proponent of Mohammedism.

A literal IV drip filled with caffeine. Apparently, a caffeine drip is not a joke.
I myself can't quit caffeine. I was in withdrawal so badly during surgery that I could not hold down even water as much. They literally had to hook me up to a caffeine drip. The drip rate was two hours instead of one hour because the nurse did not want to blow out my vein.

Karaites will subscribe only to the various Pharisaical additions to Tanakh as optional and as long as they don't contradict or otherwise go against Tanakh.

A reference to the famous and infamous, Puerto Rican-Jewish son of Cruz "Allen" and Lillie "Lillian" Friedman Rivera.

Often controversial, the "Exposing Myself", "HisPanic", and "The Great Progression" author; five-times-married, four-times-divorced dad of five children; and a former lawyer who represented the Young Lords of Spanish Harlem; the ABC News-turned-NBC News-turned-FOX News anchor has never shied away from taboo subjects (including Satanism and Al Capone's vault) or even outright-dangerous situations (including unthinkingly giving away troop positions in Iraq in 2003, right before he was scheduled to marry Erica Levy).

Some have sadly speculated that the 68-year-old "Geraldo at Large" host and FOX News correspondent may also not be in his final marriage in being married to Erica Levy, the daughter of late ADL Regional Chairman Howard A. Levy. Even though Geraldo Rivera converted to Reform Judaism in 2003 by celebrating a second Bar Mitzvah Ceremony with son Gabriel and marrying Erica Levy at Manhattan's Central Synagogue, Rivera has had a record of sleeping with over 1,000 women (including his five wives; all four ex wives of whom he cheated on) and raised concern from some (including some outright-vicious and vile gossips) that his support for the verdict in the Casey Anthony case may be motivated be certain untoward and inappropriate feelings towards the infamous client of Jose Baez.
