Tunnel-detection tech offers safer, cheaper colonoscopies
By Brian Blum for Israel21c
Israeli invention for remote imaging of smuggling tunnels leads to spin-off product for more comfortable, less expensive lower bowel imaging.
A promising new technology for improving colonoscopies got its start as a way to remotely explore smuggling tunnels.
When a tunnel is discovered, homeland security or military personnel need to quickly and safely determine what’s inside. Beersheva-based startup IBEX Technologies developed a thin inflatable “sleeve” that can be robotically piloted into a dark tunnel. A camera attached to the front end of the sleeve transmits real-time live video and high-resolution images.
The Hebrew Bible’s Christian Students
By Sara Toth Stub for Tablet Magazine
In Israel, non-Jews take a growing interest in studying Tanakh—with Jewish teachers
When Knesset member Yehuda Glick founded the Lobby for Encouraging the Study of the Bible, his aim was to build support for expanding the Jewish public’s study of this book. But the organization recently found itself co-sponsoring a joint Christian-Jewish Bible study session in the Knesset in honor of Yom Yerushalayim—Jerusalem Day, the day marking Israel’s victory and its subsequent taking over all of Jerusalem in the Six-Day War.
Israel makes history and does something to save the whole world
By Leah Rosenberg for Israel Unwired
Israel has given to the world in many ways. One Israeli contribution is showing the world how to make desert land flourish!
Desertification is a global environmental problem where already dry land becomes even more arid. It can be caused by many things, but one thing is for sure: It is bad for the world and the environment. And another thing is certain: Israel has figured out ways to combat desertification.
