Inflation, tumbling markets, and other bad news are easy to find. So sit back and enjoy some good news from Gili’s Goodies.
A team of researchers at the Weizmann Institute grew a mouse embryo. The embryo was created outside of a womb and without the use of an egg or sperm. The tiny embryo was made possible from stem cells, raising many scientific and ethical questions. The hope is that this technology could be used to grow organs and cure certain diseases. It’s a tremendous breakthrough that could lead to scary science-fiction type thinking. The best thing to do is to read the full article and get some understanding. #frankenstein
Enes Kantor Freedom has become a darling of Israel. The Turkish Muslim 11- year NBA Veteran landed in Israel a week ago to run an interfaith basketball camp at the Jerusalem YMCA. He’s more well known for his activism than his accomplishments on the court, but it’s amazing for Israel to have such an outspoken person speaking out on its behalf. This comes after seeing 76rs big man Joel Embiid dancing the hora at a wedding. #NBASummer
A plane from Hong Kong to Tel Aviv was the first to fly directly over Saudi airspace after Saudi Arabia opened its skies to Israeli passenger planes going to and from Tel Aviv. #babysteps
Food technology is a growing sector, and Israel is a leading player. Israel leads all countries in food tech investments besides the U.S. Future Meat, Aleph Farms, and Trigo Vision are just a few of the companies leading the charge, but there are well over fifty companies in and around the space. Check it out. #foodtech
Finally, The security establishment has been running Operation Breakwater since March to stop a deadly wave of terror attacks. The operation appears to be bearing fruit. Earlier this week, the army arrested the Palestinian Islamic Jihad leader in the West Bank, Bassam Saadi, who they suspect of constructing terror cells and orchestrating terrorist activities. May G-d bless our security forces, and those who lift a hand against us know we’re coming for them. #GodBlesstheIDF
