Happy Birthday Israel — Shining bright for 65 years


Yom Ha’Atzmaut, Israel’s Independence Day! (Video’s)

On Tuesday Israelis will be celebrating the 65th anniversary of Israel’s independence. It is usual for people to be honored with presents on their birthday, but the Jewish philosophy is that it is better to give than to receive. Here, therefore, are some of the Jewish State’s most recent contributions to the world.

Israel constantly bestows gifts to medical science. Researchers at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem have just discovered the mechanisms that the body uses to shut down the immune system. This knowledge may soon help patients with cancer and HIV. Nearby, at Jerusalem’s Hadassah Medical Center, scientists have found the genetic cause of PCD (primary ciliary dyskinesia), responsible for lung infections, sinusitis, frequent ear infections and fertility problems. In half of these cases, the heart, liver, stomach and spleen grow on the wrong side of the body. Early diagnosis can reduce risks of subsequent damage. Hadassah is also helping establish a new medical center in Varna, Bulgaria for bone marrow transplantation.

Israeli renewable energy technology could soon be used to fuel celebrations everywhere. Ben Gurion University and the University of Michigan have just announced that they are to forge a research partnership on developing renewable technologies. The program will research advanced vehicle fuels, solar energy and thermoelectric materials, which convert heat to electricity. And a simple innovation by Sergey Biryukov at Ben Gurion University’s National Solar Energy Center could generate even more power from solar panels. To remove dust from frequent storms Sergey came up with the idea of using an electrical field to “charge” the dust particles and repel them from the panels. It looks just like someone blowing out birthday candles!

Many countries are already receiving benefit from Israeli clean technology. One example is Israel’s Ormat Industries, which transforms energy from underground heat sources into electrical power. Ormat has designed a 330-megawatt geothermal power plant in Northern Sumatra and will supply it with two geothermal energy converters. About 2000 miles to the North East, China’s Guangdong Province Water Company is currently installing 75 water analyzing and control units supplied by Israel’s Blue I Water Technologies.

Two companies with close ties to Israel have also been celebrating recently. Computer giant IBM Israel has enjoyed 40 years at its Haifa center where it developed the RS/6000 computer, ultrasound equipment and a HIV database. Meanwhile, can you imagine how many “happy birthday” greetings have been sent via mobile phones in the 40 years since Martin Cooper of Motorola made the very first cell phone call in 1973? Much of that technology was developed at Motorola’s development center in Haifa.
