Despite rain and snow Lake Kinneret is still well below a satisfactory level. There is however no shortage of good news which keeps Israel at the forefront of making the world a better place.


 Within the last few days it has been announced that a revolutionary treatment for cancer has been trialed in Israel.

Watch this short video and marvel at the miracles being performed by a country vilified more than any other nation in international forums.




 An Israeli startup has developed a car sensor that it says is capable of saving lives of infants accidentally left in cars by detecting the smallest heartbeat.

The company’s sensor uses optical motion analysis to detect the tiniest movement within the car, including an infant heartbeat. When it detects motion, it can notify a driver who has already left the car and automatically turn on the air-conditioning.


 Davao, the Philippines’ second-largest largest city, has signed an agreement to implement the Israel Sci-Tech Schools’ i-STEAM education model in one of its public high schools as a model for the rest of the city’s high schools.

The i-STEAM curriculum adds innovation and arts (creativity and humanities) to traditional STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) education to prepare students for the jobs of the future. Business organization, marketing and entrepreneurship components also were added to the curriculum.


 Economic indicators for Israel showed another successful year in 2017 as, for the first time ever, Israel’s GDP per capita has surpassed that of major industrialized countries such as Britain, Japan and France.

Israel stands out among the nations that won their independence after the Second World War. Despite facing more challenges than virtually any other country, Israel has transformed from a poor and fragile socialist backwater to a first world Start-Up nation of cutting-edge technologies and knowledge during seven brief decades, while fighting for its existence.

The failures of the Arab boycott and later the Boycott Divestment Sanction (BDS) campaign movement to destroy Israel’s economy are no less spectacular than the Muslim Arab failures to defeat Israel in the military battlefields. Israel’s economy is far stronger today than when BDS was launched in 2005.


Ice cream lovers around the world may soon be able to make the frozen treat right in their kitchens — without the chopping, mixing, unsightly machines, or hours of waiting.

An Israeli startup has developed a capsule system that would make fresh ice cream in an instant with just the click of a button, much like a coffee machine.

Solo Gelato’s capsules come in 24 flavors – and counting – and are a little larger than coffee capsules. They cater to different tastes and diets, offering a number of varieties including sugar-free, organic, and alcoholic options.

Each capsule makes a single portion of ice cream. As for the machine, it too is borrowed from the coffee industry, operating like Nespresso, the Nestle brand that makes systems that brew espresso from company-made capsules and pods.

The system is “like a coffee machine with a technology that freezes and expels air into the capsules, in just 60 seconds.”
