Can Israel Contribute?!

1. Scientists in Israel found that the brackish water, drilled from

underground desert aquifers hundreds of feet deep, could be used to

raise warm-water fish. The geothermal water, less than one-tenth as

saline as sea water, free of pollutants, and a toasty 98 degrees on

average, proves an ideal environment..

 

2. Israeli-developed designer-eyeglasses, promise mobile phone and

iPod users, a personalized, high-tech video display. Available to US

consumers next year, Lumus-Optical's lightweight and fashionable video

eyeglasses, feature a large transparent screen, floating in front of

the viewer's face that projects their choice of movie, TV show, or

video game.

 

3. When Stephen Hawkins recently visited Israel , he shared his wisdom

with scientists, students, and even the Prime Minister. But the world's

most renowned victim of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), or Lou

Gehrig's disease, also learned something, due to the Israeli

Association for ALS' advanced work in both embryonic and adult stem

cell research, as well as its proven track record with

neurodegenerative diseases. The Israeli research community is well on

its way to finding a treatment for this fatal disease, which affects

30,000 Americans.

 

4. Israeli start -up, Veterix, has developed an innovative new

electronic capsule that sits in the stomach of a cow, sheep, or goat,

sending out real-time information on the health of the herd, to

the farmer via email or cell phone. The e-capsule, which also sends

out alerts if animals are distressed, injured, or lost is now being

tested on a herd of cows, in the hopes that the device will lead to

tastier and healthier meat and milk supplies.

 

5. The millions of Skype users worldwide will soon have access to the

newly developed KishKish lie-detector. This free internet service,

based on voice stress analysis (a technique, commonly used in criminal

investigations) will be able to measure just how truthful that person

on the other end of the line, really is.

 

6. Beating cardiac tissue has been created in a lab from human

embryonic stem cells by researchers at the Rappaport Medical Faculty

and the Technion - Israeli institute of Technology 's biomedical

Engineering facility. The work of Dr. Shulamit Levenberg and Prof. Lior

Gepstein, has also led to the creation of tiny blood vessels within the

tissue, making possible its implantation in a human heart.

 

7. Israel 's Magal Security Systems, is a worldwide leader in

computerized security systems, with products used in more than

70 countries around the world, protecting anything from national

borders, to nuclear facilities, refineries, and airports. The company's

latest Product, DreamBox, a state-of-the-art security system that

includes Intelligent video, audio and sensor management, is now being

used by a major water authority on the US east coast to safeguard the

utility's sites.

 

8. It is common knowledge that dogs have better night vision than

humans and a vastly superior sense of smell and hearing. Israel 's

Bio-Sense Technologies recently delved further and

electronically analyzed 350 different barks. Finding that dogs of all

breeds and sizes, bark the same alarm when they sense a threat, the

firm has designed the dog bark-reader, a sensor that can pick up a

dog's alarm bark, and alert the human operators. This is just one of a

batch of innovative security systems to emerge from Israel which Forbes

calls 'the go-to country for anti-terrorism technologies.'

 

9. Israeli company, BioControl Medical, sold its first electrical

stimulator to treat urinary incontinence to a US company for $50

Million. Now, it is working on CardioFit, which uses electrical nerve

stimulation to treat congestive heart failure. With nearly five million

Americans presently affected by heart failure, and more than 400,000

new cases diagnosed yearly, the CardioFit is already generating a great

deal of excitement as the first device with the potential to halt this

deadly disease.

 

10. One year after Norway 's Socialist Left Party launched its Boycott

Israel campaign, the importing of Israeli goods has increased by 15%,

the strongest increase in many years, statistics Norway reports.

 

In contrast to the efforts of tiny Israel to make contributions to

the world so as to better mankind, one has to ask what have those who

have strived to eliminate Israel from the face of the earth done other

than to create hate and bloodshed?
