Their escape route is cut off as they have run smack into the Red Sea. Their demise seems all but certain. So what...

You ever read a book and think, "that's the book I should have written?" That's how I feel about Avi Jorisch and his new book, "Thou Shalt Innovate: How Israeli Ingenuity Repairs the World." Thou Shalt Innovate introduces the reader to Israelis who exude light in the face of darkness, people who have chosen hope and healing over death and destruction. In a world that has more than its share of darkness, these stories are rays of light. However, as I only care...

In Larry's presentation he shared the staggering statistic that in the late 40's Israel's annual exports were around 10 million dollars (and mostly made up of Jaffa oranges, and dentures (I kid you not)!). In 2017...

Currently I'm in Omaha, Nebraska and Des Moines, Iowa signing people up for the welaunch 6 day Cybersecurity Tour, in conjunction with Cybertech Tel Aviv, Israel's leading cybersecurity conference. I've met with multiple corporations, from the financial, insurance, data processing sectors and beyond. They all have one thing in common - they are daily confronting cyber risks, threats and insecurity about what lies ahead.
