The IDF is bolstering forces in the north, in preparation for a possible attack by the US, Lebanese media reported Saturday, referring more specifically to areas in front of the blue line in east south Lebanon and upper Galilee and the Golan Heights.

According to reports, IAF planes are continually circling above the same areas in south Lebanon.

In addition, the IDF deployed all missile defense systems.

On Friday, the IDF deployed an Iron Dome battery in the Tel Aviv Metropolitan area. For the first time the battery is facing north.

The system was deployed as a precaution ahead of…

Why it is time to rethink Wi-Fi security


Can I have your Wi-Fi password? If you’re someone like me, you’ve asked this question many times. Not only in coffee shops, but also while visiting homes of friends and relatives. And if your friends and family are anything like mine, they probably started to hunt for that three-year-old Post-It note, or tried to spell out a cryptic letters-and-numbers password that was impossible to type with your smart phone’s onscreen keyboard.

Lately, I’ve been thinking there has to be a better way.

The reason that I’ve been wondering about the future of Wi-Fi security is that I’ve come to realize that the home network is increasingly not just about access to the internet, but about social interaction and collective media consumption.

Take Chromecast, for example. Google’s (S GOOG) TV dongle is great for watching YouTube videos with your friends, who can use YouTube’s iOS and Android apps to queue up…

Poveste interzisă (V)


Fusese invitat în ultimul moment la o aniversare, nimic sofisticat, o ieșire la terasă, o friptură, un vin, cam atât. Era deja acasă când a primit invitația, a făcut repede un duș, a îmbrăcat o camașă pe care abia o cumpărase, frumoasă, avea o croială ieșită din tiparele clasice și niște culori vii, o pereche de blugi si a plecat spre restaurant. A ajuns printre primii, era întotdeauna punctual, prefera să ajungă mai devreme decât să întârzie, însă obiceiul ăsta avea și avantaje, își putea alege nestingherit locul la masă. S-a așezat mai către mijlocul mesei și în așteptarea celorlalți invitați a comandat o sticlă de vin roșu, evita vinul alb, ultima oară când băuse vin alb se pricopsise cu o puternică durere de cap, de la sulf probabil. Și-a aprins o țigară și a schimbat câteva vorbe cu cei veniți mai devreme, ca și el. Încet au început să…

Tourists Spend Night on Tree Escaping Bear in Montenegro

Voices from Russia

01 bear at table


Local news websiteCdM reported that a man from Kazakhstan and a woman from the Ukraine, who were both on a bicycle tour across south Montenegro, were forced to spent a night in a tree saving to escape from a bear. On Thursday, police and residents of Virpazar went on a search and rescue mission after the two tourists used to their mobile to call a friend, saying that they were in a tree in a nearby forest hiding from a bear. The search lasted for several hours, complicated by the fact that the tourists’ mobile went dead, then, the cops decided to take a break. Ultimately, both travellers emerged safe and unhurt in Vilpazar on their bicycles. The website added that the Montenegrin government strongly advised tourists against travelling without a local guide in remote areas.

Obama’s Syria crisis: He and John Kerry need a better plan for dealing with Assad’s chemical weapons crimes.

Obama’s Syria crisis: He and John Kerry need a better plan for dealing with Assad’s chemical weapons crimes. – Slate Magazine.

He has feeble international support, and he doesn’t know what he’s trying to accomplish.

President Obama speaks during a ceremony in the East Room of the White House.

A “shot across the bow” is not a fleshed-out plan.

President Obama is in a huge jam on Syria, and it’s not clear how he gets out of it. The problem is twofold. First, he is preparing to take military action against Syria for the sole purpose of enforcing international law. Yet he has very little support from the organizations—or many members of those organizations—that are charged with enforcing international law. If the point of the intervention is to uphold the civilized world’s long-held norms (in this case, norms against the use of chemical weapons), and if he can’t persuade more…

Unveil Israel with the Mizel Museum

Mizel Museum

By Georgina Kolber
Curator of Exhibits and Programsmountainside

As our third annual New Israeli Cinema series, produced in collaboration with the Denver Film Society comes to a close, I am happy to unveil Mizel Museum’s second Israel trip, scheduled March 24-April 1, 2014. The Israeli film series is a curatorial highlight, so it’s hard to see it go; as the characters, places and narratives we encountered on screen fade into memories, I find solace in knowing that in eight short months we’ll embark on a new adventure in Israel, revisiting some of the places and maybe even some of the characters we met on screen.

Spotted ! First American Indie Film festival in Tel Aviv

The Bubblist

Life is so busy lately that going for a movie seems like an almost absurd fantasy. I’m always trying to find an opportunity to have a cinema break, so I was beyond thrilled when I read that Tel Aviv was going to host its first American Indie festival. Ok, it’s probably not going to be as exciting as a trip to Sundance but I’m always keen to support new projects.

“States of Minds” was founded by Lysbeth Sherman, she sees the festival as a “meeting of minds” between the U.S. and Israel, media professionals, filmmakers and entrepreneurs to inspire social change*”.Social, environnemental and political  issues are the mains subjects and focus of the festival

The festival will last four days, and will screen 12 movies (fiction, documentary and short film) from contemporary US filmmakers.

“States of Minds” will be held at the Lev Cinema in the Dizengoff “ugly” Center, but few screenings…

Ani Ohevet Yisrael


Heyyyy everyone 🙂 so due to popular demand, I finally got a blog. Now you can follow along and live vicariously through me while I’m overseas. Yay!

So let’s start from the beginning here: I’m currently overseas in Israel for grad school. My dream has always been to be a Professor of Holocaust Studies. I got my undergrad degree in European History and went to grad school for secondary education to teach high school kiddos, and well, I’m now working towards that ultimate goal of mine. I’ve been accepted into an amazing Holocaust Studies graduate program, and this will make me eligible for doctoral programs in Holocaust Studies. My program starts in early October but I arrived on August 4th so that I could do Ulpan, which is an intensive conversational Hebrew course. I actually took my midterm yesterday, which is nuts as I only got here 12 days ago…

Reflections from Israel: Haifa


Part II: Haifa

My original plan was to travel to Haifa on Saturday—but as demonstrated earlier—My plan was shuffled to Sunday instead. A review of Israel’s geography shows that Israel is a tiny country, around the size of the state of New Jersey. Haifa is an ancient port city located on the Northwestern coast of Israel. It is home to a famous landmark that is amazingly not Jewish: the Baha’i Gardens. For those who don’t know, Baha’i is a recent addition to the monotheistic faiths that preaches unity. According to,  “…all the world’s religions represent stages in the revelation of God’s will and purpose for humanity.” I personally believe this is something true.

We often meet people who cross our paths later in life. My trip to Haifa was a pristine example. Five years ago, on a flight from Los Angeles to San Francisco, I met a nice…

The Long, Long Labor Day Weekend

PA Pundits - International

caruba_alan20080111By Alan Caruba ~Cartoon - Obama's Kill List

It’s going to be a long weekend and I am not referring to Labor Day. Depending on how events unfold, the President may order an attack on Syria in the wake of the use of poison gas. Not one military expert interviewed on Fox News Channel has said that the use of Tomahawk missiles will achieve anything likely to deter the Syrians from using poison gas again and—worse—possibly using it against Israel as an act of defiance.

Or he may not. There has been considerable pushback from Congress, specifically a letter to the President signed by both Republican and Democratic members warning that he must consult with Congress, as the Constitution requires (as well as the War Powers Act) before taking any action. Internationally, Germany’s Angela Markel and Russia’s Vladimir Putin joined together to advise against a U.S. attack. As this is being written, the British…

How To Solve The Fast Food Strike In Two Simple Words

The Daley Gator


This is a teachable moment for America and I sincerely hope that the owners of all the fast food franchises where employees walked out on strike today take full advantage.


There are hundreds of thousands of people in America right now who are desperate to find jobs of any kind. This national demonstration by fast food employees, which is happening on the eve of Labor Day weekend (sheer coincidence) is nothing more than the latest McProtest by leftists and union supporters.

The only time flipping burgers is a career is if you own or manage a hamburger restaurant in which case you probably work your ass off for 60+ hours a week and take all or most of the risks.

Working the cash register at a fast food restaurant is not a 9 to 5 forty hour job that pays $40K with benefits. Working the cash register at…

Bach in Ghent.

Ralphie´s Portal

Yesterday evening, a friend and I went to an organ recital in the St. Baafs cathedral in Ghent, where we listened to, amongst others, the Passacaglia in c by Johann Sebastian Bach, a majestic musical waterfall, superbly rendered by Mr. Edward De Geest, a true virtuoso on the organ.

While listening to the above-mentioned piece with eyes closed, I had the impression that I was swept away boatless on the rapids of some raging river, followed by a tidal wave that approached behind me at the speed of sound. Only to fall endlessly through the white foam of a gigantic waterfall, where all the bubbles of foam were made up of musical notes. Then to be carried more rapids, until I was finally washed up on dry land, dazed and wondering what in heaven’s name had hit me. Bach’s music had filled my senses completely and I floated home as if bourne on air.

UN Chemical weapons experts inspecting site of attack in Syria

French President Francois Hollande gave a boost Friday to US hopes of forging an international coalition for possible strikes against Syria after British lawmakers rejected any involvement in military action.

The White House had signalled Thursday that President Barack Obama, guided by the “best interests” of the United States, was ready to go it alone on Syria after deadly chemical weapons attacks last week. But Russia, the Syrian regime’s most powerful ally, warned any military strikes would “deal a serious blow to the entire system of world order”.

Russia And China Warn US On Syria Strike.

Rivers of Hope


Russia and China have stepped up their warnings against military intervention in Syria, with Moscow saying any such action would have “catastrophic consequences” for the region.

The US and its allies are considering launching strikes on Syria in response to deadly attacks last week.

The US said there was “undeniable” proof of a chemical attack, on Monday.

UN chemical weapons inspectors are due to start a second day of investigations in the suburbs of Damascus.

The UN team came under sniper fire as they tried to visit an area west of the city on Monday.

A spokesman for UKPrime Minister David Cameron says the UK is making contingency plans for military action in Syria.

Mr Cameron has cut short his holiday and returned to London to deal with the Syrian crisis.

Russian foreign ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich has called on the international community to show “prudence” over…
