SHITTY LITTLE COUNTRY (see end(

   The Middle East has been growing date palms for centuries. The average

tree is about 18-20 feet tall and yields about 38 pounds of dates a

year.

   Israeli date trees are now yielding 400 pounds/year and are short

enough to be harvested from the ground or a short ladder.

   Israel the 100th smallest country, with less than 1/1000th of the

world's population, can lay claim to the following:

   The cell phone was developed in Israel by Israelis working in the

Israeli branch of Motorola, which has its largest development center in

Israel.

   Most of the Windows NT and XP operating systems were developed by

Microsoft-Israel.

The Pentium MMX Chip technology was designed in Israel at Intel.

   Both the Pentium-4 microprocessor and the Centrino processor were

entirely designed, developed and produced in Israel.

   The Pentium microprocessor in your computer was most likely made in

Israel.

Voice mail technology was developed in Israel.

   Both Microsoft and Cisco built their only R&D facilities outside the

US in Israel.

   The technology for the AOL Instant Messenger ICQ was developed in 1996

by four young Israelis.

   Israel has the fourth largest air force in the world (after the U.S,

Russia and China). In addition to a large variety of other aircraft,

Israel's air force has an aerial arsenal of over 250 F-16's. This is

the largest fleet of F-16 aircraft outside of the U. S.

   Israel's $100 billion economy is larger than all of its immediate

neighbors combined.

   Israel has the highest percentage in the world of home computers per

capita.

   According to industry officials, Israel designed the airline

industry's most impenetrable flight security. US officials now look

(finally) to Israel for advice on how to handle airborne security

threats.

   Israel has the highest ratio of university degrees to the population

in the world.

   Israel produces more scientific papers per capita than any other

nation by a large margin - 109 per 10,000 people --as well as one of

the highest per capita rates of patents filed.

   In proportion to its population, Israel has the largest number of

startup companies in the world. In absolute terms, Israel has the

largest number of startup companies than any other country in the

world, except the U.S. (3,500 companies mostly in hi-tech).

   With more than 3,000 high-tech companies and startups, Israel has the

highest concentration of hi-tech companies in the world -- apart from

the Silicon Valley, U.S.

   Israel is ranked #2 in the world for venture capital funds right

behind the U.S.

   Outside the United States and Canada, Israel has the largest number of

NASDAQ listed companies.

Israel has the highest average living standards in the Middle East.

   The per capita income in 2000 was over $17,500, exceeding that of the

UK.

   On a per capita basis, Israel has the largest number of biotech

startups.

   Twenty-four per cent of Israel's workforce holds university degrees,

ranking third in the industrialized world, after the United States and

Holland and 12 per cent hold advanced degrees.

Israel is the only liberal democracy in the Middle East.

   In 1984 and 1991, Israel airlifted a total of 22,000 Ethiopian Jews

(Operation Solomon) at Risk in Ethiopia, to safety in Israel.

   When Golda Meir was elected Prime Minister of Israel in 1969, she

became the world's second elected female leader in modern times.

   When the U. S. Embassy in Nairobi, Kenya was bombed in 1998, Israeli

rescue teams were on the scene within a day -- and saved three victims

from the rubble.

   Israel has the third highest rate of entrepreneurship -- and the

highest rate among women and among people over 55 - in the world.

   Relative to its population, Israel is the largest immigrant-absorbing

nation on earth. Immigrants come in search of democracy, religious

freedom, and economic opportunity. (Hundreds of thousands from the

former Soviet Union)

   Israel was the first nation in the world to adopt the Kimberly

process, an international standard that certifies diamonds as "conflict

free."

Israel has the world's second highest per capita of new books.

   Israel is the only country in the world that entered the 21st century

with a net gain in its number of trees, made more remarkable because

this was achieved in an area considered mainly desert.

Israel has more museums per capita than any other country.

   Medicine... Israeli scientists developed the first fully computerized,

no-radiation, diagnostic instrumentation for breast cancer.

   An Israeli company developed a computerized system for ensuring proper

administration of medications, thus removing human error from medical

treatment. Every year in U. S. hospitals 7,000 patients die from

treatment mistakes.

   Israel's Given Imaging developed the first ingestible video camera, so

small it fits inside a pill. Used to view the small intestine from the

inside for cancer and digestive disorders.

   Researchers in Israel developed a new device that directly helps the

heart pump blood, an innovation with the potential to save lives among

those with heart failure. The new device is synchronized with the

camera helps doctors diagnose heart?s mechanical operations through a

sophisticated system of sensors.

   Israel leads the world in the number of scientists and technicians in

the workforce, with 145 per 10,000, as opposed to 85 in the U. S., over

70 in Japan, and less than 60 in Germany. With over 25% of its work

force employed in technical professions. Israel places first in this

category as well.

   A new acne treatment developed in Israel, the Clear Light device,

produces a high-intensity, ultraviolet-light-free, narrow-band blue

light that causes acne bacteria to self-destruct -- all without

damaging surrounding skin or tissue.

   An Israeli company was the first to develop and install a large-scale

solar-powered and fully functional electricity generating plant, in

southern California's Mojave desert.

   All the above while engaged in regular wars with an implacable enemy

that seeks its destruction, and an economy continuously under strain by

having to spend more per capita on its own protection than any other

county on earth.

Meeting tomorrow

Hi Everyone,

Hope you all had a good break.

We need to meet tomorrow to discuss the speaker that we will be bringing 
for our talk on Jan 27.

Phil has suggested that the talk could be something about the situation 
in Israel now that Sharon is ill.

Another thing that needs to be taken care of is the transfer of the 
presidency from me to Jenn.

Dr Weiner, who I spoke to just before break last semester about being 
our advisor, might also be attending the meeting so we need to try and 
stay focused during the meeting.

Dr Weiner is a faculty member of the Biochemistry Department.

Since I do not know what your class schedules are like, I would like to 
go ahead and set the meeting for 18:00 at Hillel unless there are 
serious objections.

callout

   We had originally proposed having the callout on Thursday night, the 19th, but it seems like having it Friday night would be better for some people.  (Including myself)  Does anyone see any problem with having the callout on Friday at 6?  And what are the views on having it at Hillel versus other places?  I really need to know by this afternoon, as I will be finalizing the fliers to get out to you guys tonight.  Also I would need to do a room request, etc.  None of that is problematic, but I just need to know asap.  Thanks!!                                             Jenn

Suggestion from Adam Milstein

Hey Everyone,

Adam Milstein, who I spoke with on Sunday, suggested that ICAP try and 
emphasize what is going on with the lunatic in Tehran.

We might want to ask our speaker on the 27th to mention something about 
this in addition to speaking about Sharon's condition and its 
implication for Israel.

Also, John could you please add Adam to the ICAP mailing list. His 
e-mail address is: amilstei (gmail.com)

Re: Suggestion from Adam Milstein

Actually the speaker, Tsuriel Raphael, is going to be on campus February 6th.  I will attach his list of specific topics to the group.  John is fine tuning the flier for our call out on January 27th, NEXT Friday.  I will try to get us a Window to advertise our upcoming speaker and our cal lout, and we need to start putting the paper fliers up in buildings on Thursday (unless we are allowed to do so tomorrow?  Could someone tell me the rules for fliers IN buildings?) 
I completely agree that we should address the CRAZINESS in Iran.  It's nutty, it's scary, and I think it's a good way to bring up other Israel issues.  John, can you also add Walter?  His address is walterzy-Re5JQEeQqe8AvxtiuMwx3w@public.gmane.org.  Thanks. 

Side note,  our website is at http://web.ics.purdue.edu/~icap/
There is a nice place where news or discussion can be posted.  If you don't have an account bug John and he will set you up.  That away if you read a story you like, you can just paste it there, and maybe we can start some discussion of some of the current things going on.  And there seem to be a lot!  And I hate to say it, but please keep it relatively professional. Especially you,Goldberg!

Including Iran

Hi all,

Just thought you might be interested to know (in case some of you didn't make 
it) that U.S. Army General (four star) Wesley Clark spoke earlier this evening 
to a full house in Loeb Theater.  (His topic was mostly about the Balkans, 
since he was in command for NATO at that time.)  However during the Q & A 
session afterwards he addressed lots of things...including the threat posed by 
Iran, and commented that the US should have gone after them before Iraq.  He 
also discussed how often the people in power make decisions about places 
they've never been, and included the Iranian leader's remarks about destroying 
Israel as an example of someone making a decision without ever having been 
there!

Peace,
Dara

fliers

Can somebody get 75 copies made of the callout flier, and then talk to Roni?  She is taking over fliers for a bowling event to Smalley sometime today, and if she has not gone yet could you get them to her?  If she has already delivered those, then can you take the fliers to Smalley (between Meredith and the co-rec)?   If no one can do it today, then I will get them printed tonight and take care of it tomorrow.  Please let me know.  If you use the printers in the library or other non-lab places you can avoid using your quota, although they are still not charging this semester.            Jenn
