I just got this, so I figured I'd pass it on (Source: Unknown).

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 visited Israel recently, he shared his
wisdom with scientists, students, and even the Prime Minister. But the
world's most renown 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-Israel Institute of Technology's biomedical Engineerin g
faculty. 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.
