The company behind the design of Israel’s nuclear center in southern Israel has released photos of the site for the first time.

The black and white photos were published by the architectural firm "D. Eytan / R. Lahav-Rigg". The company was responsible for the construction of the reactor during the 1960s.

The photos were taken during the construction of the reactor, which according to foreign experts manufactured hundreds of nuclear and hydrogen bombs for Israel.

Among other things, the photos show several different structures, such as a library, water tower and residence. The company also released a satellite photograph taken from space of what was then called "a Negev civic center.”

The photos were taken by architect Dan Eitan, and were sent to Shimon Peres, the president of Israel, in recognition of his contribution to the construction of the complex. Israel has maintained a cloud of secrecy about its nuclear program. As we reported earlier, Israel has as many nuclear weapons as other large military superpowers, according to a new report released this week.

Israel has about 80 nuclear weapons, 50 for their Jericho II medium-range ballistic missiles and 30 for gravity bombs carried by military fighter jets. Israel also has additional non-strategic nuclear weapons, including artillery shells and atomic demolition munitions, according to the report.

The U.S., Russia, U.K., France, China, India, Pakistan and Israel, have about 4,400 operational nuclear weapons combined. Nearly 2,000 of them are kept in a state of high operational alert. If all nuclear warheads are counted, these states have a combined total of approximately 17,265 nuclear weapons, the report said.

Man suffering from Cerebral Palsy becomes IDF soldier

Ben Levy 
By: Sarah Weiss

A man overcame his illness to join the Israel Defense Forces, according to a reports by the IDF blog.
A new recruit to the IDF shares his personal message of overcoming challenges to serve the country.

“Every citizen in the State of Israel, no matter whether born with a disability or not, needs to serve his country. Trust me, volunteers do as much as the soldiers recruited by law, and sometimes even more.

My name is Ben Levy, I was born with cerebral palsy and I’ll be 20 in a month. From a young age it was clear to me that I wanted to be a soldier. My dad is a policeman, and my brother is a paratrooper. At home, they always taught me to serve the country and to give of myself as much as I can. Two years ago, I got an exemption from the army, but my affair with the IDF had only just begun.

Last week, I enlisted in the IDF for a full two years of service.

So what’s my message? Give as much as you can, and don’t ever give up on yourself. If everyone says he can’t do it, there will be no one left to defend this country. I’m not different to anyone else here.”

100-year-old Israeli man rises to rank of Major General in the IDF

Yitzhak Pundak

(Scroll down for video) An old Israeli man rose to the rank of Major General in the Israel Defense Forces, according to a report in the IDF blog.

Yitzhak Pundak, who served as a senior officer during the 1948 War of Independence, is the first person to rise to the rank of Major General after having completed active service. This is a “unique and precedent-setting moment,” said Chief of the General Staff Lt. Gen. Benny Gantz at the ceremony.

By the time most Israelis pass the age for mandatory reserve duty, they expect their personal dealings with the IDF to be long over. Not so for Yitzhak Pundak, who this week was awarded the rank of Major General at the age of 100. Only the Chief of Staff himself holds a higher rank.

Maj. Gen. Pundak commanded the southern front during the War of Independence. After the war, he commanded the Nahal Brigade, and in 1953 was appointed to command the Armored Corps. In 1971 Pundak was called back to military service by then-Defense Minister Moshe Dayan, and was appointed Governor of the Gaza region at the rank of Brigadier General.

In 1954, Dayan, who was Chief of the General Staff at the time, decided to promote Pundak to the rank of Major General, but this promise was never realized. But this week, Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon and Chief of the General Staff Lt. Gen. Benny Gantz righted a historic wrong and promoted Pundak, now 100 years old, to the rank he had been promised.

Lt. Gen. Gantz said at the ceremony that “Yitzhak’s tremendous legacy has guided us over the years. I feel that this is a unique and precedent-setting event, expressing appreciation and gratitude towards you and your activities. I’m glad that I was able to do what is right and promote you to Major General. This is an exciting moment for you, for your family and for the IDF.”

Several horses caught on video running on busy Israeli highway

(Scroll down for video) Several drivers reported seeing horses running along a busy Israeli highway, according to a video uploaded on Channel 2 News.

The strange sight was seen this morning by drivers on highway 431 on their way to Jerusalem. They reported seeing three horses galloping for several miles along the side of the road, without riders and without direction. The horses caused traffic to get backed up as drivers slowed down to catch a look while others feared to drive near the horses.

"I was driving to Jerusalem when I suddenly realized the traffic slowing down. When I got closer to the scene of the incident, I realized that there were horses on the road. I looked around to see if their owners were nearby, but I did not see anyone. The horses did not cause any harm. The kept nicely in their lane," Eran Vaknin, who was driving to work, said.
Traffic on highway 431 slowed mainly because drivers wanted to record the incident on their mobile phones.

Police officer Anat Ben-Yaakov, who arrived at the scene, said that a great effort was made to get the horses off the road. "In the end we managed to get them off the road, all the horses. We also discovered that two of them were injured. We handed the horses over to the Ministry of Agriculture," Ben-Yaakov said.

Palestinian who hacked Mark Zuckerberg’s Facebook account receives $11,000

(Scroll down for video) A Palestinian man in the West Bank, who recently made headlines for hacking into Mark Zuckerberg’s Facebook account, received more than $11,000 which was raised on an internet page.

Internet users have raised over $11,000 in order to reward the Palestinian security researcher, who broke into the Facebook page belonging to Mark Zuckerberg, in the name of exposing a security flaw.

The fundraising campaign on the website GoFundMe raised $11,035.00 from 178 people in just one day for Khalil Shreateh and is still collecting donations after he was denied a so-called "Facebook Bounty."

"I hope this has raised awareness of the importance of independent researchers," Marc Maiffret, a security expert, said.
"I also hope that other researchers take note that while working with technology companies can sometimes be frustrating, they cannot forget the greater goal of helping the Internet community in general," he said.

While Facebook offers rewards to those who find security holes, the company said Shreateh went too far by posting the information on the profile page of Zuckerberg without consent.

Shreateh said in his blog that he found a way for a Facebook user to bypass security and modify the timeline of others, even if they were not friends of the network.

He said he took the unusual step of hacking into Zuckerberg's profile after being ignored by the Facebook security team.

A new survey that was recently released shows that nearly all Israelis feel very safe and secure in their place of residence, according to a report released by the Tazpit News Agency.

A new poll conducted by Israel's Ministry of Public Security in order to determine the effectiveness of urban policing programs in 13 different Israeli cities found that residents in the city of Ariel feel the safest.

Located in Judea and Samaria, Ariel is home to 20,000 residents, of whom 92 percent responded saying that they feel secure in their community.

Following Ariel, were two cities located in central Israel that tied were: Givatayim, a city outside of Tel Aviv and the ultra-orthodox city of Bnei Brak, where 88 percent of residents in polled that they felt safe. The northern city of Carmiel ranked fourth in that category.

The cities with the lowest sense of security were the mixed Jewish-Arab cities of Lod and Nazareth, with only 70 percent expressing that they felt protected.

The poll also found that Ariel residents (85%) are the least concerned with being harmed by criminal activity out of the 13 cities documented, followed by Givatayim (84%) and Bnei Brak (81%). The cities where residents felt that they were most likely to be victims of crime were Lod and Nazareth.

"There is no internal crime or violence in Ariel," said Avi Zimmerman, Executive Director of the Ariel Development Fund to Tazpit News Agency.

"Graffiti is as criminal as it gets here."
Zimmerman described that his city’s residents feel both secure and rooted in the community. “Normalcy is taken for granted," he added.

Established in 1978 by 40 families, Ariel today has 29 kindergartens, seven schools, and a university which educates over 10,000 students a year.

"We are proud that Ariel is ranked first when it comes to our residents' personal security," said the city's mayor, Eliyahu Shaviro. "It is a result of the hard work of city police authorities and that of the Israeli police force. We will continue to ensure that security of Ariel's residents remains at the center of our attention in the future."

Rogers thought he would never see the watch again. Until one day a friend of Rogers saw his watch in a local pawn shop. Police were able to identify Strasser as the suspect.

School officials issued a statement saying: "We are all shocked and saddened by the news. Anytime the actions of an educator betrays the trust of our students and community, we are heartbroken."

A substitute teacher replaced Strasser pending the outcome of the investigation.
Strasser was booked into the Clackamas County Jail with bail set at $15,000.

Two older men steal quarters from vending machine with vacuum cleaner

By: Shifra Unger

Two men came up with what they thought was the perfect plan to rob a vending machine, by using a vacuum cleaner to suck out the coins.

But things did not turn out as planned.

The men of salt Lake City, Utah, went to a car wash and used a powerful vacuum cleaner to suck the quarters out of the coin-operated machine, police said.

To their bad luck, a passing police officer happened to be in the area when he realized that something was not right with the two. He stopped and caught them in the act.

The men thought they had all their grounds covered. In attempt not to be caught, the men altered their vehicle's license plates. They used a piece of black electrical tape to change a "D" to a "B," Sergeant Gary Young of Salt Lake City suburb of Cottonwood Heights said.

"They had a good plan. If they were successful they could have returned night after night. Very often, thieves just use a crowbar to break open vending machines. These guys get an A for effort, but an F for execution," Young said.

Todd Herburg, 53, and Scott Luker, 55, were arrested on charges of theft. The thieves were at work for about 12 minutes, sucking coins out of the coin dispensary with their vacuum cleaner, which was hooked up to their truck, before being caught.

Police have not counted the stash of quarters yet, but officer Young said that the coin-operated machine probably held no more than $30 in quarters.

(Scroll down for video) A teacher is being slammed after allegedly taping one of the school students to a chair as a punishment, according to school officials in Arizona.

The second grade teacher in Tucson, has been removed from class and an investigation is underway amid accusations that a young girl was taped to her chair as punishment, school officials said Wednesday.

"We take this very seriously. Obviously, this type of behavior is not appropriate or acceptable, and not part of any district protocol," Tucson Unified School District spokesperson Cara Rene said. "If it is proven that this conduct occurred, that appropriate disciplinary action will be taken," she said.

Rene refused to give details pending the outcome of the investigation of the school. The school district has not released the name of the teacher.

The incident was first reported earlier this week.
The girl's mother, Maria Vasquez, was angry and said her daughter suffers from hyperactivity disorder and attention deficit disorder.

"She likes to be happy, and the teacher tied her to a chair," Vasquez said. "Whether it was it was not right,” she said.
Vasquez said her that the teacher taped her daughter to the chair after becoming upset because the girl got up to sharpen her pencil too many times last week at Hollinger Elementary School.

Vasquez has reported the incident to the police in Tucson. Police Sergeant Chris Widmer said an investigation is ongoing.

(Scroll down for video) A man was arrested and charged with theft related charges after stealing a car from another man, who had stopped to help him on the side of the road, according to police reports in Minnesota.

St. Louis County Police said that a man was arrested in northern Minnesota, on Saturday night after crashing his car, and then, allegedly stealing a vehicle from a Good Samaritan, who tried to help him.

When authorities arrived at the scene, they learned that several Good Samaritans stopped to help the victim of the accident, but saw the man abandon his car and fleeing into the woods.

A short time later, the man returned, stole one of the cars belonging to the Good Samaritan and fled from the scene. A Deputy Sheriff stopped the car and took the man into custody without incident. He was identified as 24-year-old Jacob Allan Mellinger of Duluth.

Mellinger was taken to a hospital for treatment for minor injuries, then he was taken to the county jail in St. Louis. The incident is still under investigation.

Nurse jailed after trying to hire patient as a hit man

Andrew Martin 
By: Shifra Unger

A nurse was arrested, charged and convicted of conspiracy to commit murder related charges after trying to hire a patient to kill a woman, according to court proceedings in Ohio.

Now, the man has been sentenced to 12 years in jail.
The nurse, a former worker at Cleveland Clinic, was sentenced on Wednesday after trying to hire an emergency room patient as a hit man.

Andrew Martin offered $10,000 to the patient if he agreed to kill a woman he had a dispute over ownership of a house belonging to his dead brother. The patient told police he had been asked by a nurse if "ever killed anyone.”

Martin, of Bristolville, about 50 miles east of Cleveland, previously pleaded guilty to orchestrating the murder for hire plot. He had faced a seven to nine-year term under federal sentencing guidelines. He was also ordered to pay more than $83,000 in restitution.

Martin admitted in April to using a telephone to further the plot, and also pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit wire fraud and attempting to access private medical records.

Prosecutors said that Martin and another man began to conspire in October 2011 to take possession of a house that had belonged to an elderly former patient at the hospital where Martin worked. The patient died in late 2010.

Martin, 23, used his position there to access the patient's medical records so the other man could claim to have had a personal relationship with him, prosecutors said. They created a false writing and claimed ownership of the home of the former patient, prosecutors said.

A judge eventually sided with the administrator of the estate of the former owner and annulled the act retroactively.
That is when Martin decided to kill the woman. Martin said that the woman ruined his life.

Identical twin sisters die on same day in Germany

Anni and Maria Bachmair 
By: John Roberts

Two women, who loved each other dearly, lived together and died on the same day.

These twins stuck together till death. Anna and Maria Bachmaier, both 83, from Steinhoring, Germany, were born on June, 4, 1930 and have now died just a few hours apart.

It was around 5:00 am when Anna died of liver cancer in a nursing home. Her twin sister, Maria, slept in the next room . "When Annie died, Maria was extremely restless and she cried, this is just unbelievable," nephew Peter Bachmaier, 43, said. They were always very close and they thought and acted as identical twins.

Maria, who had lost a leg to diabetes, was not told about her sister’s death, leaving her family and nursing home staff stunned when she died only a few hours after her twin sister.

When Anna and Maria were young women, they worked in different areas. Anna stayed in her hometown and worked in a local church for 48 years. The priest at the Ignaz Loidl Church said: “Anna was very pious and her faith got her through any problem she faced.”

While Maria went to work in Munich as a nurse, she visited regularly. When she retired in 1985, Maria returned home and lived with her twin sister Anna. Both women were never married and both of them never had children.

When they grew older and were no longer able to care for themselves they both decided to live at the nursing home together. They enjoyed spending time with each other and could not see their lives without their twin. May they both rest in peace.

(Scroll down for video) Before reaching for an antidepressant or sleeping pill, have sex, it will relax you and help you sleep better, a new study shows.

Researchers examined the effects of the semen’s mood-altering chemicals.

The research showed that seminal fluid contains chemicals that elevates mood, increases affection, induces sleep and also contains at least three antidepressants.

Semen contains other chemicals along with spermatozoa, such as cortisol, which is known to increase affection, estrone, which elevates mood and oxytocin, which also elevates mood.

Semen also contains thyrotropin releasing hormones, which is an antidepressant, melatonin which is a sleep-inducing agent and even serotonin, which is the best known antidepressant neurotransmitter.

Based on these findings, State University of New York scientists conducted a survey comparing women’s sex life and their mental health, in which semen proved to benefit women, who have unprotected sex.
Other recent findings from Gallup laboratory indicate that women, who are exposed to semen, perform better at cognitive tasks.

Rich man seen on video using money as tissue

Man wiping face with money 
By: Eva Fett

(Scroll down for video) A rich man made many people cringe after he was seen on television using money instead of a tissue to wipe himself.

A man was seen on video pulling out a 50 euro bill to wipe his face after he was stuck in the rain with no umbrella.

Seems like there are some rich people, who have too much money, and don’t know what to do with it.

As a television presenter was interviewing Horse Racing & PR Manager Barry Orr in the rain at the Galway Race track in Ireland, a man, was seen in the background using money to wipe away water from his face.

The man, who did not have an umbrella, was getting wet when he was seen rummaging through his jacket pockets. But instead of a taking out a handkerchief or tissue, the racing fan pulled out a 50 euro note and wiped his wet face with it.

The man appeared completely unfazed while wiping his face with with money worth around $66. Ironically, money was unable to buy him protection from the rain.

Some people suggested that the man did it just to get noticed on television. "He got what he wanted, his face was on television, congratulations on the successful feat,” an internet use wrote.
Others claim that it was not real money, but rather a tissue with currency printed on it.
