      The new book by Elyakim KislevThe new book by Elyakim Kislev.

      Tired of swiping right on that dating app? Not to worry. Feeling pressure from your parents and friends to settle down and get married? Take a breath and relax.

      Decades ago, there may have been more of a stigma attached to being single, but that's changing with each passing year.

    2. Why winemakers from around the world are turning to Israel - From the Grapevine

      Why winemakers from around the world are turning to Israel - From the Grapevine

      Nana WineryIsrael's Nana Winery has created their own blend.

      Drive three hours south of Jerusalem towards the southern tip of Israel – between ancient stone terraces and barren golden hills – and a surprising sight rises above the horizon: a lush wine vineyard spanning dozens of acres. The pastoral carpet of green stands out amidst the sandy surroundings.

      The Nana Estate Winery is just one of approximately 250 wineries that have, quite literally, cropped up in Israel in recent decades. Together, they've turned the small Mediterranean country into not only a wine lover's ...

      Boaz Keysar-Do you make better decisions in another language?

      A surprising study shows how your brain may process information differently.

      Suppose you were about to bet on a sporting event, like this weekend's Super Bowl. Before making the decision if you should bet on the Philadelphia Eagles or the New England Patriots, would it make a difference if you were given each team's stats in English or another language you happen to know?

      New wearable device gives 'sight' to the visually impaired

      A new device made up of a tiny camera, an earpiece and a very powerful wearable computer could drastically improve the lives of some 21 million Americans living with a visual impairment.

      OrCam is not primarily a mobility aid, so it won’t replace a cane, but what it can do is help a wearer recognize and interpret the world around them by reading printed text off a variety of surfaces and recognizing products and faces.

      OrCam was founded in Israel by Amnon Shashua, a computer science professor at Hebrew University in Jerusalem. The device is based on computer vision ...
