    First off, inYahoo, they have feature that tells young people about profressions that only require an Associates Degree, and golly gee, they offer a better income that the some of the "jobs" that require six and eight years of study at universities. Now we learn that anyone with with a basic skill of knowing where you are and what you are able to do, or, in turn an ability to think out of the box, you don't need any college degree at all. You can "start up" with an idea and go for it. Seems some Haredim have discovered that skill. No college, they;ve never read War and Peace, or their understanding of how WWI started , nothing like that--they work, and earn money. Heck, my grandfather left his Polish village from Poland with his "pans" to Germany just after WWI, before Hitler, he rented an oven, knocked on doors offering his services to bake homemade bread. By the mid-thirties he had his own shop. He left Europe just in time, reached the States, same same,. Never went to college, never leanred Engiish very well. I still wonder how he would have succeeded today, though, it's my guess, far better than some people with Masters degrees in the Intellectual History of the Middle Ages.

Alvy (Woody Allen) and Annie (Diane Keaton) in 'Annie Hall.'
Why is it hard to fall in love, and even harder to sustain it?

The answer can be summed up in one word, narcissism, which manifests itself in three principal ways. There are ways to overcome this love of self, however.
