From outer space to back on earth Israel’s achievements keep coming…


Israel’s first satellite to study the environment was launched last week from the European Space Center in French Guiana.

The ultra-lightweight satellite’s main purpose is to provide unprecedented imaging for environmental research purposes. It will monitor the state of vegetation, afforestation, farmland and water in about 110 areas around the globe, using a special camera that can capture invisible details.


 Israel’s improved economic growth and efforts to rein in spending prompted Standard & Poor’s to raise the outlook on the country’s debt profile. While S&P held Israel’s debt rating stable at A+, it improved the outlook to “positive” from “stable,” which means it could raise the grade a notch in the next two years, the company said in a statement.

The economy grew four percent last year and is expected to expand by 3.1 percent this year.


 Thousands of Israeli youngsters travel to India every year after their army service. Now it is the turn of IDF trained sniffer and attack dogs to sample the delights of India.

Over the past year India has taken delivery of about 30 security dogs to provide protection for the Prime Minister and other top officials. The new four-legged recruits are considered the best in the world in sniffing out explosive booby-traps.

One wonders if these dogs will find a curry based diet to their liking.


 Israel’s wonder woman, Gal Gadot, is scheduled to star in a sequel to the film in 2020. The current movie is expected to gross more than US$400 million at the box office in the USA this weekend and close to US$800 million in worldwide receipts.

Despite boycotts by some Islamic countries our wonder woman goes from strength to strength. Perhaps she can help to defeat the forces of evil ranged against us.
