Israeli men can expect to live at least to the age of 80, according to a research report released this week.

The research showed that Israeli men have the highest life expectancy in the Middle East, and the fourth highest in the world, according to the report, which was released by the World Health Organization.

Israeli men born in 2012, will live an average of 80.2 years. Men in Iceland were likely to live longer, an average of 81.2 years, followed by Switzerland at 80.7 years and 80.5 years in Australia. Israeli women did not fare so well.

With a life expectancy of 84 years, Israeli women did not even reach among the top 10.

The Centre For Policy Studies calls these self-made billionaires “Super Entrepreneurs.” The country with the most Super Entrepreneurs is Hong Kong, with 2.831 self-made billionaires per one million residents. Israel was ranked in second place followed by the United States, Switzerland and Singapore.

Mexico, was ranked at the bottom of the list with just .056 Super Entrepreneurs. The E.U. average came in at .30.

“The analysis of the self-made rich suggests that the vast amount have gathered their wealth through entrepreneurship, in the process creating wealth for society at large. Many of the self-made billionaires come from humble backgrounds and have gained their wealth through hard work and innovative ideas,” The Centre For Policy Studies said in its report.

(Scroll down for video) A New York City taxi driver complained that his rights were being violated after being suspended for wearing a swastika on his arm.

27-year-old Gabriel Diaz said that people usually cursed him when they saw that he was wearing the bright red band on the left arm.

“People usually said ‘f*** you Nazi,’” he said. He said that passengers never complained, and were oblivious to the diatribes that occurred outside the taxi.

However, several people were so disgusted that they took pictures and filed complaints with the Anti-Defamation League. The Anti-Defamation League sent a letter to the Taxi and Limousine Commission.

“We are very disturbed by this provocative and offensive display, and we appeal to the Taxi and Limousine Commission of New York, to investigate this issue and take appropriate action as soon as possible,” Evan Bernstein, the regional director of the Anti-Defamation League, said. The agency investigated Diaz and suspended his license for 30 days after pleading guilty to violating their rules.

It is against the rules for drivers do anything that is against the best interests of the public. Diaz feels that the suspension is a violation of his constitutional rights.

A couple was looking forward to having their embryos implanted so that they can fulfill their dream of having children.

However, the couple died in a car accident just 4 days before having the procedure.

Claimant Shen of China, who lost his only son and daughter-in-law in the car accident, filed a petition asking the court to order the Nanjing Gulou Hospital, to hand over the frozen embryos to her.

The deceased woman was also an only child to her parents. However, the judge of the Jiangsu Province, rejected the petitions of the grandparents to inherit the four frozen embryos that were left behind by the couple who died in the car accident.

The judge ruled that the embryos obtained through surgery cannot be inherited or transferred, and refused to deliver it to any set of parents.

“The embryos can only be used by the couple to have children and cannot be donated or sold in accordance with Chinese law,” Judge Lu Yaqin said.

Even if the parents were to get the embryos, they cannot implant it in another woman because surrogacy is illegal in China.

Shen said he wants to appeal to a higher court for the embryos and wait for the country to end the ban on surrogacy.
