The Other Caped Crusader

I quit my full-time job eight months ago without another one to fall back on. In hindsight, it wasn’t one of my better decisions, but it was time for me to move forward. I was in a position that never quite suited me – like an ill-fitting pair of shoes that’s one size too small and rubs across the toes. Sure, a nagging thought called a recession cropped up from time-to-time before I resigned, but I was confident I would only be on the market for a few weeks, max. Armed with a new LinkedIn profile and a heaping dose of faith, I bid farewell to my boss and colleagues of six years to embark on my new journey.

Israel’s Transportation Revolution is Underway

It is no secret that transportation development has suffered neglect and lack of promotion in the past two decades. Until recently, roads have not been revamped, the train's route was not developed, and traffic jams across the country intensified due to an increase in the number of private vehicles. Lately, however, Israel has witnessed developments everywhere. Across the country, from north to south, there are new roads, interchanges have been built, railroads placed and more.

An American Odyssey (Part 11)

We left Reno, Nevada, early Sunday morning and decided to take the scenic route to Salt Lake City, rather than travel by super highway, but Route 50 turned out to be not very scenic as we crossed Nevada and Utah. We stopped at a roadside table at noon, where the men heated and ate LaBriute meals while the women enjoyed their cottage cheese, peanut butter sandwiches, fruit and vegetables. We have followed this pattern of meals ever since the women decided not to eat the packaged meals.

Jewish residents of the Benjamin region fear the new connection of the road leading to their home with a road connecting the Arab city of Ramallah and the Rawabi luxury real estate project, burgeoning to the south of their settlements. "We know the wild manner of driving of many of the Palestinians," one settler said. "Put them here on the road, and they'll turn it into a major traffic artery, with us as moving targets."
