South African BDS Activists Target Woolworths Kosher Food Section With Severed Pigs Head
The Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign against Israel took another step into open antisemitism today when student activists in South Africa placed the severed head of a pig in the kosher meat section of a Woolworths store in Cape Town. The shocking gesture was aimed, the perpetrators said, at preventing “people who will not eat pork to pretend that they are eating clean meat, when it is sold by hands dripping with the blood of Palestinian children.”
Jewish leaders were quick to condemn the act, organized by the Congress of South African Students (COSAS,) a body affiliated with the ruling African National Congress (ANC.) “Disregarding all standards of basic decency, the Congress of South African Students today chose to send an ugly message to the Jewish community of South Africa. This morning, as a protest against Woolworths for stocking Israeli products, COSAS members in Cape Town deposited a pig’s head in the kosher meat section of a Woolworths food store,” said the South African Jewish Board of Deputies. “The SAJBD regards this incident as a hate crime and is investigating its options regarding taking the matter further.”
A spokesman for Woolworths claimed after the incident that there “were no kosher food products on the affected shelf” at the retailers’ Fort Road store in the Sea Point district. “Placing a pig’s head in our store is unacceptable and offensive to our employees and customers, including Jewish and Muslim employees and customers,” Paula Disberry, Woolworths group director of retail operations said in a statement. “We are investigating this incident and we will consider our options to prevent such distasteful protests in our stores.”
It’s Time for HRW’s Ken Roth to Go
Ken Roth has now been executive director of Human Rights Watch (HRW) for more than two decades; indeed, he has become an institution there. But if HRW is going to retain any credibility, it is time to demand Roth resign or be fired.
Here’s the problem: On October 22, a car driven by a known Hamas activist slammed into a light rail stop, injuring several Israelis and Americans, and killing a three-month-old girl. The driver of the car tried then to flee on foot, but was shot (and has since succumbed to his wounds). Hamas claimed responsibility for the attack. Seems pretty cut-and-dried. Not to Roth, who wasted no time casting doubt.
This is what Roth had to say on Twitter:
“Palestinian deadly crash into train stop. Israel calls it ‘terrorist attack…typical of Hamas’ http://trib.al/EIkJp01 ”
To call the attack in Jerusalem simply a car crash is like calling the 9/11 attacks a plane crash, or to call ISIS’s enslavement and rape of Yezidi women as mere groping. The contempt with which Roth holds Israel is legendary. Five years ago, its founding chairman even took to the New York Times to lament HRW’s bias and politicization under Roth.
Caroline Glick: It’s time to beat the Jew-haters
The decision by the most prestigious opera house in America to produce an opera that mainstreams Jew-hatred and anti-Jewish terrorism is a great victory for elitist anti-Semitism. In the world of elite anti-Semitism, Jews are told that truth is but a narrative. Jewish history and rights have no more merit – indeed less merit – than the lies of Jew-haters. And if Jews dare to object to the propagation of lies against them, they open themselves to the easy accusation that they seek to stifle free speech.
The goal of elitist anti-Semitism is to erode the right of Jews to have and promote Jewish rights and interests. This is done by demonizing those who defend Jewish rights and advance Jewish interests, while elevating and romanticizing the lives and largely false narratives of those who seek to destroy Israel.
The Met’s singular contribution to the cause of elitist anti-Semitism is the prestige its production of The Death of Klinghoffer confers on the cause.
Another dam has been breached. Another safe zone has become a no-go zone.



Michael Lumish: The Death of the Metropolitan Opera
Perhaps I just do not have that kind of ethical discipline, because I will not watch this production in any form or under any circumstances short of a pistol to my head. If Phyllis Chesler, Alan Dershowitz, and Marty Peretz tell me that the work is heinous and bigoted nonsense, I will tip my kippa to their judgment in this case.
And to those wealthy Jews who are helping to finance the Met... go to hell.
I know that more open-minded people than myself, such as, say, David Harris-Gershon, would probably love the damn thing.
But, speaking strictly for myself, there is no way that I am going to applaud a piece of media that begs us to wonder if killing Jews, merely because they are Jews, is perhaps not spiritually uplifting or, at least, given the politics, perfectly understandable.
Klinghoffer Opera is Blatant Anti-Semitism
John Adams, the opera’s composer, in an interview on public radio, said that all great opera’s tackle controversial subjects and went on to allude to fellow anti-Semite Richard Wagner, who not only resented the operatic success of his Jewish rivals, but was obsessed, according to Friedrich Nietzche, with the idea that his biological father was really Jewish. Of course, whether all great opera’s engage controversial subjects is a matter of opinion, but certainly not all controversial subjects make for great operas.
Otherwise, why not, “The Death of Martin Luther King,” written as a drama that celebrates King’s assassin, James Earl Ray, as hero and King as the embodiment of an inferior race that is unwilling to recognize its subordinate position in society?

New York Mayor Bill De Blasio condemns those, like former New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani, who demonstrated against the opera. De Blasio asserts the opera’s creators have First Amendment rights. But does the First Amendment not extend to those who want to demonstrate against the opera?
To add insult to ignorance, De Blasio says he is concerned about the rise of worldwide anti-Semitism while apparently failing to grasp that the opera contributes to that phenomenon by giving legitimacy to anti-Semitic stereotypes and justifying the murder of a Jew for being a Jew.
‘Death of Klinghoffer’ Actress Compares Met Opera to ‘Schindler’s List’
An actress starring in the controversial Met Opera The Death of Klinghoffer defended the show on Tuesday by comparing it to the 1993 Holocaust film Schindler’s List, New York Post reported.
“To me, this was like [the movie] Schindler’s List. We make art so people won’t forget,’’ said the actress, who plays a captured passenger in the show and asked not to be identified.
The Met Opera focuses on the infamous murder of Lower East Side Jewish resident Leon Klinghoffer, 69. The wheelchair-bound father of two was shot by Palestinian hijackers on the Achille Lauro cruise ship 29 years ago. The terrorists threw his body, along with his wheelchair, overboard into the Mediterranean Sea and his corpse washed up on the Syrian shoreline a few days later.
Academic Doublethink Regarding Anti-Semitism
As yet more evidence that academics are regularly able to engage in what George Orwell sardonically referred to as “doublethink,” “the power of holding two contradictory beliefs in one's mind simultaneously, and accepting both of them,” this month 40 professors of Jewish studies published a denunciation of a study that named professors who have been identified as expressing “anti-Israel bias, or possibly even anti-Semitic rhetoric.”
While the 40 academic “heavyweights” claim they, of course, reject anti-Semitism totally as part of teaching, they were equally repelled by the tactics and possible effects of the AMCHA Initiative report, a comprehensive review of the attitudes about Israel of some 200 professors who signed an online petition during the latest Gaza incursion that called for an academic boycott against Israeli scholars.
Calling “the actions of AMCHA deplorable,” the indignant professors were insulted by the organization’s “technique of monitoring lectures, symposia and conferences,” something which, they believe, “strains the basic principle of academic freedom on which the American university is built.” That is a rather breathtaking assertion by academics; namely, that it is contrary to the core mission of higher education that ideas and instruction being publicly expressed by professors cannot be examined and judged, and that by even applying some standards of objectivity on a body of teaching by a particular professor “AMCHA’s approach closes off all but the most narrow intellectual directions.
Anti-Israel Mob Harasses Israeli Food Vendors at Paris Trade Fair (VIDEO)
Several dozen anti-Israel activists harassed and intimidated Israeli food industry vendors taking part in this week’s SIAL food trade expo in Paris, Israel’s Ch. 2 News reported Thursday.
At one point, at least 10 protesters, masquerading as businessmen, broke into the “Priniv” exhibition, waving Palestinian flags, and shouting insults at the presenters at the Israeli Export Institute pavilion.
Protesters held signs and chanted, “No trade with apartheid,” “Boycott Israeli apartheid,” and “Gaza, Gaza, We won’t forget!”
“It’s sad to see such hatred towards Israelis,” Priniv CEO Ido Yaniv said in comment.
Israeli security guards at the pavilion immediately alerted their French counterparts, and the demonstration was forcefully dispersed, after protesters refused to disperse peacefully.
UK Jewish students struggle to avoid twinning with ‘Hamas greenhouse’
Even by the standards of British student politics, the campus-wide vote due to take place from October 24-31 at the University of Manchester is most questionable and controversial.
The proposal being put to vote is to renew the university student union’s twinning partnership with An-Najah National University in Nablus, place called by Hamas as “a greenhouse for martyrs.”
According to Jewish watchdog organization the Anti-Defamation League, “the student council of An-Najah is known for its advocacy of anti-Israel violence and its recruitment of Palestinian college students into terrorist groups. The council, almost completely controlled by factions loyal to Hamas, Islamic Jihad and Fatah, glorifies suicide bombings and propagandizes for jihad against Israel.”
Unsurprisingly, students connected with Manchester’s Jewish society oppose the motion.
Anna Baltzer Must Not Be Allowed Into Israel
Anna Baltzer is planning on visiting Israel October 25th to November 9th with an ISM group called Interfaith Peace Builders who are anything but what their title suggests. They are ISM activists and coming to Israel to coordinate with Arab irredentists and Israeli radicals who want the state brought down. They return to the US and lead lectures where they claim IDF soldiers abuse Arab children, but have stepped up a notch. now the tale decided at the conference is that they rape Arab children. (This is an original lie, because an Israeli leftist received a prize several years ago for her paper claiming that IDF soldiers are racist because they do not rape Arab women.)They go on a tour in the West Bank where they are told such stories then go back to the US and tell the lies on college campuses all across America.
I’ve been beating my brains out trying to get the government to not let Anna Baltzer enter Israel, nor her group of ISM buddies. It looks like she’ll be allowed to enter—again. She’ll do it under one of her many aliases, no doubt as Anna Nardie, Anna Lambrecht, Carolle Corsuy or her real name Anna J. Piller. But rest assured, she’s the same scumbag, Anna Baltzer.
A colleague and I tried to get the government to halt an ISM program called the Olive Tree Initiative which does the same thing. The first tours taught California college students that IDF soldiers use Arab kids for target practice and students met illegally with Hamas leaders. The students from that tour, some Jews, returned and joined the BDS Movement. We sent evidence to the Israeli government, nobody acted, and the program just grew and grew until today the California taxpayer subsidizes all the trips from every University of California campus.
Kuwait bolsters secondary boycott of Israel
Kuwait’s Commerce Ministry is on the verge of ending its relations with 50 European companies because of their dealings in the “occupied territories” taken in the 1967 Six Day War, sources told an Arab newspaper.
The ministry is also looking into information that the British security firm G4S plc, which works in the “occupied Palestinian territories,” is active in Kuwait, the Jerusalem- based Al-Quds on Tuesday quoted the sources as saying.
If the information is found to be correct, the ministry intends to immediately warn G4S to stop doing business in the “occupied territories” or else lose its operating license in Kuwait, the sources said.
Kuwaiti law already bans Israeli products and companies.
BBC WS ‘Newshour’ provides a platform for UNRWA’s political campaigning
One of the major players in that long-standing campaign is of course the highly politicized UNRWA and its spokesman Chris Gunness (who, readers may recall, was instrumental in the BBC’s revision of an article concerning casualty figures in the Gaza Strip) is given a three and a half minute long unchallenged platform for that purpose.Gunness: “But let’s be clear: this mechanism is not a substitute for lifting the blockade. There is little point in reconstructing Gaza if the world refuses to allow Gaza to trade. Otherwise we’re gonna have people in lovely new houses but completely aid-dependent, which is why we say the blockade must be lifted, Gaza must be allowed to trade, to export, and the natural export markets of Gaza is…are…the West Bank and that’s what we need to see first of all.”
Menendez makes no attempt to point out to audiences that – contrary to the impression they will have received from Gunness, exports do leave the Gaza Strip. He also makes no attempt to challenge the following over-vehement protestations from Gunness.
“Well I have to be honest here and say that UNRWA has been taking materials – building materials – into Gaza for and there is no evidence whatsoever that one grain of sand that UNRWA has taken into Gaza has been stolen or expropriated by any organization, least of all the militant organization. So we have a proven track record and I can speak for UNRWA and certainly we are able to get building materials into Gaza and for it not to be subverted or taken by any group and certainly not any militant group.”
BBC Complaints: ‘it was hard for journalists in Gaza to see rockets being fired’
It may of course well be that the BBC’s lack of coverage of missile launches and other terrorist activity in the Gaza Strip was motivated by concern for the personal safety of its correspondents on the ground at the time and its permanent local bureau staff. Whilst that would be perfectly understandable, that policy did however affect the credibility of BBC reporting and had a major effect on its adherence to BBC editorial guidelines concerning accuracy and impartiality, thus affecting the way in which audiences understood the story as a whole.
Such an obvious lack of transparency – and common or garden honesty – in dealing with complaints from the public as shown in the above response clearly compromises the BBC’s reputation in a very serious manner.
Israel slams Latvian musical celebrating Nazi’s life
Israel’s Foreign Ministry slammed the production in Latvia of a show celebrating the life of Nazi war criminal Herbert Cukurs.
Titled “Cukurs, Herbert Cukurs,” the musical premiered earlier this month. The play is based on the life of the deputy commander of the Arajs Kommando force that participated in the near annihilation of Latvian Jewry after the Nazis invaded Latvia. Israel’s Mossad spy agency reportedly killed Cukurs in South America.
The Latvian government has criticized but not banned the privately produced work.
“Israel strongly condemns the production in Latvia of a musical that honors the memory of Latvian Nazi war criminal Herberts Cukurs,” Israel’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, which rarely comments on artistic endeavors that are not about Israel, said in a statement Thursday.
Soccer Star Taulent Xhaka Accused of Nazi Salute
The Swiss Football Association (FA) has announced an investigation into allegations that Taulent Xhaka, an Albanian defender with national soccer champions FC Basel, delivered a Nazi salute following a 1-0 victory last Saturday against Berne club Young Boys.
Photos of the gesture began circulating this week on social media, displaying a shirtless Xhaka with his right arm bent to his chest in one image, with a follow-up image showing his arm outstretched. Although the gesture may have been directed at the disappointed and raucous home crowd, Xhaka has claimed that he was just waving to his family.
This is the second major controversy involving Xhaka this month. During a European Championship qualifying game between Serbia and Albania on October 14, played in the Serbian capital, Belgrade, a drone appeared above the pitch carrying a banner with the Albanian flag. A Serbian player snatched the banner out of the air and began to roll it up. Taking offense, the Albanian players led by Xhaka charged their Serbian opponents, resulting in a brawl between the teams that spread to the crowd.
German Model Aircraft Manufacturer Herpa Apologizes for Negative Reference to ‘Zionism’ in Magazine Article
The German company Herpa, the world’s leading manufacturer of quality model airplanes, has apologized for an article in its monthly magazine, WingsWorld, which included hostile references to Zionism.
As The Algemeiner reported on Tuesday, the article, which focused on Israel’s national airline El Al, contained a section which discussed the hijacking of El Al planes by Palestinian terrorists during the 1960s, and which was introduced with the following sentence: “The conflicts between Israel and the Palestinians, who have been experiencing the Jewish settlement of Palestine backed by US patronage of Zionism to this day as a violent, illegal occupation and eviction, increased significantly.”
The piece then went on to examine the hijackings carried out by the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, including the following observation: “The terror of the PFLP and many other organizations didn’t remain restricted to El Al, and has its bitter climax with the events of ’9-11′.”
Websites toeing Europe’s line on hate speech
A little over a year after a French court forced Twitter to remove some anti-Semitic content, experts say the ruling has had a ripple effect, leading other Internet companies to act more aggressively against hate speech in an effort to avoid lawsuits.
The 2013 ruling by the Paris Court of Appeals settled a lawsuit brought the year before by the Union of Jewish Students of France over the hashtag #UnBonJuif, which means “a good Jew” and which was used to index thousands of anti-Semitic comments that violated France’s law against hate speech.
Since then, YouTube has permanently banned videos posted by Dieudonne, a French comedian with 10 convictions for inciting racial hatred against Jews. And in February, Facebook removed the page of French Holocaust denier Alain Soral for “repeatedly posting things that don’t comply with the Facebook terms,” according to the company. Soral’s page had drawn many complaints in previous years but was only taken down this year.
Jewish Tombstones Used to Pave Roads Return to Cemeteries
Two-year-old Krzys zooms down a slide in Warsaw and shrieks with delight, paying no mind to the workmen who are busy demolishing the playground walls.
At first glance, there is nothing special about the old walls. But take a closer look and it becomes apparent that a couple of stones are inscribed with Hebrew.
The tombstones, known as Matzevot, from hundreds of Jewish cemeteries across Poland - that were abandoned or destroyed following the Holocaust - were used to pave roads and put up walls during the communist era.
The desecration of the graves was part of rebuilding the city that had been razed to the ground by Nazi Germany during World War II, a conflict that also all but wiped out Poland's Jewish community.
Those tombstone chunks are now being salvaged and returned to their cemeteries through a project meant to turn the page on a dark chapter in complex Jewish-Polish relations, AFP reports Friday
'Two Eternal Nations' Meet at Jerusalem's Japanese Culture Week
This article is the first in a unique series in honor of Japanese Culture Week.
Jerusalem held the official opening ceremony of Japanese Culture Week on Monday, as the Israeli capital became awash with the culinary, musical and visual experiences of the Land of the Rising Sun – it’s “close neighbor” according to the visiting senior Japanese minister.
The festivities took place in Jerusalem’s First Station located south-west of the Old City, where Arutz Sheva was on scene to speak exclusively with the visiting dignitaries and unique artists who made the long journey from Japan.
Japan is Coming to Israel – With Its Best Kosher Food
As America and Europe become ever more critical in foisting political agendas on their relations with Israel, the Jewish state is turning its eyes to the east – where it has found a natural ally in Japan, holder of the world’s third-largest GDP.
That alliance is advancing rapidly under the guidance of the Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO), a government-related group whose representatives at the Japanese Culture Week in Jerusalem told Arutz Sheva on Monday night they are witnessing something of a renaissance in Japanese-Israeli trade.
Kei Takagi, manager of JETRO’s branch in Tel Aviv, explained how his organization aids Japanese export to Israel, and likewise aids Israeli companies who want to enter the Japanese market.
Discovering Japan's 'Jewish Connection' in the Taiko Drumbeats
What do Judaism, traditional Japanese taiko drumming, African-American gospel music, and the Shinto religion of Japan have to do with each other?
For Heavenese, a unique 16-member band from Tokyo, it’s all part of a message of global harmony that they spread worldwide with their diverse array of musical styles and compelling rhythms, and which they brought for the first time on Monday night to the “city of peace” - Jerusalem.
The group’s leader Marré Ishii strikes an imposing figure onstage, powerfully pounding on the traditional Japanese drum or playing piano surrounded by his musician partners, all while decked in a costume reminiscent both of historical samurai garb and clothing from an anime show or video game.
Hollywood readies for Israel Film Fest
Hollywood will get an injection of Israeli cinema on Thursday evening, as the curtain rises on the 28th Israel Film Festival in Los Angeles.
In tune with the fest’s birthday, 28 feature and documentary films representing the best of Holy Land cinema will be screened at the two-week festival, in theaters from Beverly Hills to Encino to North Hollywood.
In true Tinseltown style, the festival’s opening night will be marked with a gala honoring legendary Israeli producer Arnon Milchan (“Gone Girl,” “Pretty Woman,” “Fight Club”), American producer Mace Neufeld “The Hunt for Red October”) and Israeli actress and current It-girl, Dana Ivgy.
Chinese giants Baidu, Ping-An invest in Israeli VC
Israel’s Carmel Ventures investment fund has closed its fourth investment fund, valued at $194 million, with a little help from friends in China. Among those providing financing for Carmel Fund IV, as it is officially known, are Chinese companies including web services provider Baidu, insurer Ping-An, and software company Qihoo360.
Like other Carmel funds, Fund IV will concentrate on early stage tech firms in high growth sectors that include enterprise software, data center infrastructure, big data, cyber security, financial technology, digital media and consumer applications. Carmel began investing from the new fund in January 2014 and has made investments in PlayBuzz, LuckyFish and three other promising early stage technology companies, the firm said. Carmel Ventures currently manages over $800 million of investor capital and is invested in 35 active companies. Carmel is a member of the Viola Group, which has over $2 billion under management.
App aims to keep things kosher, in Israel and abroad

What’s Kosher has been downloaded over 10,000 times in its first four months on the market, said Nissim Edry, CEO of Afik Pirsum, the company behind the app. Most of the downloads are in Israel, because the app is only available in Hebrew in the Israeli App Store.
That could change in the coming weeks, as the company has petitioned Apple to include What’s Kosher in other App Stores in the US and Europe. It’s also accessible for Android users around the world on Google Play, and word is getting out to visitors and tourists, who, Edry said, have been downloading the app for use when they visit Israel. “We are also working on foreign language versions, including English, French and Spanish, so users who don’t know Hebrew will be able to benefit.” The app team is building up a database of kosher restaurants in the US and Europe, which will be included in the Hebrew version of What’s Kosher, for traveling Israelis seeking a kosher meal.
Ukraine FM: Kiev satisfied with Israeli stance throughout crisis
Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin wrapped up a low-profile two-day visit in Israel on Thursday, saying one of the purposes of his visit was to discuss ways to increase cooperation between the two countries, including “military and technical cooperation.”
Klimkin, in a brief interview with The Jerusalem Post on Wednesday just after he met Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and before meeting Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman, said there were “different kinds of military technical assistance,” and that what was being discussed was not “a point of sensitivity.”
Neither Netanyahu nor Liberman’s office issued any readouts about the meeting with the Ukrainian foreign minister.
Klimkin said that he spoke with Netanyahu about the “strategic character” of Ukrainian-Israeli relations, different tracks of cooperation, negotiations over a free-trade agreement, and about trying to attract Israeli investments in high-tech and agriculture.
Ukrainian FM: 'We Want Israeli Drones'
Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin on Thursday gave an interview to Israel's Knesset Channel, in which he said his nation is interested in expanding military ties with the Jewish state.
"We spoke about the importing of drones from Israel," said Klimkin after meeting Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and other officials. "That's really important in the supervision framework of the ceasefire (with pro-Russian separatists), but we are speaking with many countries about that and countries in the European Union in particular."
The call for Israeli drones by Klimkin comes after reports last month that a proposed sale of Israeli weapons - including drones - to Ukraine had been blocked over fear of antagonizing Russia.
Extraordinary solar panel eTree transforms public seating
Lots of cities have free Wi-Fi, but only one – so far – has an eTree.
This revolutionary ecological installation from Israel’s Sologic provides free wireless Internet, charging stations for electronic devices, nighttime lighting, and water coolers for humans and dogs – all powered by a “canopy” of solar panels.
Just before the ceremonious unveiling of the very first eTree prototype, in the Ramat Hanadiv public gardens in Zichron Ya’acov, Michael Lasry of Sologic told ISRAEL21c that two more eTrees are soon to be installed, one in Nice and the other in Shanghai.
“Our aim is that in the future there will be eTrees all over Israel and worldwide,” he says. “eTree is a social enterprise that aims to promote environmental awareness and sustainability, to create a link between the community environment.”
Israel’s newest record: World’s biggest digital printer
The world’s authority on world records, Guinness, has awarded an Israeli company a record for the world’s largest digital printer. That winner — Kfar Sava-based Dip-Tech, which does digital printing on glass and ceramics, often in huge displays.
The Dip-Tech AR18000 printer can print a single pane of glass with a total area of up to 64 meters square (690 feet square). There are only two such printers in the world. Made in Israel, the Dip-Tech printers are owned and operated by sedak GmbH & Co. KG of Germany and Tianjin Northglass Industrial Co., Ltd in China. The Guinness World Records organization, which has been the acknowledged arbiter on the world’s biggest and best since 1955, presented Dip-Tech with the award last week.
Israel’s Dr. Eli Harari Honored with U.S. ‘National Medal of Technology and Innovation’
Dr. Eli Harari, the Israeli founder and retired chairman & CEO of SanDisk Corporation has been selected as one of the 2014 honorees of the National Medal of Technology and Innovation, the United States’ highest honor recognizing achievement and leadership in advancing the fields of science and technology. President Barack Obama recently announced the nine recipients to win this year’s awards. “These scholars and innovators have expanded our understanding of the world, made invaluable contributions to their fields, and helped improve countless lives,” President Obama said in announcing the recipients. “Our nation has been enriched by their achievements and by all the scientists and technologists across America dedicated to discovery, inquiry, and invention.”
SanDisk is a global leader in flash storage solutions. Dr. Harari’s vision for the company and flash memory began more than 26 years ago. Throughout the years flash memory innovations have transformed and enabled new markets and devices from digital photography to USB drives to smart phones, tablets, and thin-and-light notebooks. Flash memory is on track to become the most widely used memory technology in the world over the next decade, according to a SanDisk press release.
PreOccupied Territory: Maybe I Shouldn’t Have Brought The Mosquitoes Onto The Ark (satire)
It’s been several weeks into this dark journey aimed at preserving all animal life on land, and I’m having second thoughts over this decision to allow entry to certain species of stinging insects.
Creatures aboard my ark are barred from reproducing, with the amount of food limited to basic survival needs. The Anopheles mosquito, which uses the blood of humans and some other warm-blooded animals to help produce eggs, will not engage in that behavior while aboard, but by my six hundred years, I may have made a mistake in letting that species into the ark. Once everyone is released following the Deluge, the mosquitoes will once again make the lives of my family and descendants miserable.
Those things carry disease. I probably should have discreetly closed the door before they could get in – yeesh, is that an itch on my wrist, or is my mind playing tricks on me? I’m already suffering, and the little buggers haven’t even touched me.
