On the other hand

Whether we have more of the same or forge ahead on new paths is in the hands of the voters every few years.

Thankfully in the fields of innovation, scientific discoveries and humanitarian achievements our best minds are actively pursuing their goals on a daily basis.

 

MORE THAN A GRAIN OF SALT

Israeli cave explorers have discovered a salt cave with striking stalactites near the Dead Sea which is the world’s longest.

The cave named Malham, stretching over 10 kilometers (6.25 miles), runs through Mount Sodom, Israel’s largest mountain, and spills out to the southwest corner of the adjacent Dead Sea.

Pale salt stalactites hang from the ceilings, and some of the walls sparkle with salt crystals. Drops of salty water are visible at the tips of some of the stalactites.

MORE GAS WAITING TO BE DISCOVERED

The current election campaign has unleashed enormous quantities of “gas” into the local environment. However there seems to be even more of the real stuff waiting to be exploited.

In recent years large natural gas reserves have been discovered off Israel’s shores. US-based energy company, Noble Energy, is currently completing its rig in the Leviathan gas field, the largest reserve discovered in the country so far. It is estimated to contain 18 trillion cubic feet of gas. According to Reuters Israel estimates its seabed contains around 75 trillion cubic feet of gas and 6.6 billion barrels of oil.

American energy giant Exxon Mobil is now considering entering the Israeli arena to explore for oil and gas, according to a report.

A STUNNING CORAL REEF GETS A CLEAN

An industrial pipeline in Israeli waters near Eilat originally intended for shipping Iranian oil to Europe has served as the unlikely home of exotic coral and other aquatic life for the past 50 years.

While the pipeline sat largely unused due to the Islamic revolution in Iran, the infrastructure was soon put to a different use by nature, with hundreds of colonies of coral taking up residence there, in addition to the aquatic life that makes such environments home.

With an Israeli initiative to clean up waste associated with the old pipeline underway, efforts to preserve this underwater paradise are in full swing.

JEWS WERE HERE

Once again evidence of the authenticity of Biblical narratives has been unearthed in the City of David excavations. At a time when the legitimacy of a Jewish presence in the city is increasingly being questioned more proof that we actually were here is being discovered.
