Cherries, To My Delight, Are Back At My Supermarket After A 6- Or 7-Month Hiatus.


by Anura Guruge




Until October or November last year I had not realized that fresh Cherries, at least in New Hampshire, are seasonal, i.e., only available during the Summer months. Wow. I had kind of fallen into the belief that all common fruits, these days, were available year round due to ‘cheap’ air transport. I knew that we got fruits, vegetables & flowers, on a regular basis, from Chile, Peru, Greece & Israel.

Appears that this not the case when it comes to cherries. Cherries we get in New Hampshire are from California & they are only available during ‘Summer’. Well now I know. I am going to eat as much as I can over the next few months.

Interspace Ltd.‘ is Israel’s GoDaddy — i.e., provider of anything and everything to do with Web hosting and e-business. They are a Tech Giant in Israel. It is a company with a proven ‘Midas Touch’! Everything they touch turns to GOLD.

POSE is the latest offering by Interspace and the first Interspace product available in the U.S.A. Wow.

Interspace was founded, in 1996, by my friend, Dr. Itzik Nosatzki — who I consider to be THE CLEVEREST (and most charming) man in Israel. Back in the 1990s I had the honor of working with Itzik. Talk about GENIUS, was like being in the presence of Einstein, Edison & Tesla rolled into one. In my book Itzik is a visionary’s visionary. A serial entrepreneur with a long, proven & solid record and portfolio of success.

This is why I am backing POSE — without reservation. Itzik does not screw up. You can put your money on anything developed under Itzik’s leadership.

So, POSE will be a huge winner. More than likely a market leader within 12-months.

He, generous as ever, is offering a FREE trial. So, what have you got to lose.

Give POSE a try. You will be glad you tried.

Enjoy.

Who Is In Charge Of Satellites Being Launched Into Earth Orbit?

by Anura Guruge


Click to access ‘space.com’ original.


Click to access a pretty informative and easy to follow presentation.



Do YOU know the answer?

There is NO SINGLE International Body, say the IAU, in charge.

In the case of U.S. companies — or foreign companies planning to do business with the U.S. — the F.C.C. grants a license, but it appears that a few companies have skirted this and have had their satellites launched aboard.

What is the big deal?

Well, this 60-satellite SpaceX (Elon Musk) Starlink might look cool for a few days, BUT do you really want it marring your view of SPACE — at the Universe?

And this is only the start.

The entire SpaceX train, for providing global Internet access, will consist of over a 1,000 satellites!

And other companies, including Amazon, plan to join with thousands of their own.

Soon, and I mean in years, we will have THOUSANDS of small satellites in low Earth orbit. It will get in the way of us being able to enjoy the stars.

First we had Indians littering space. Then the Israelis crashed onto the moon. Now this.

This has to be controlled before we MESS UP SPACE.

Compassionate 7-Eleven Owner Who Fed Thief, Is Probably More Than An Indian, He Is Likely A Sikh.

by Anura Guruge


Click to access CBS story. Google for more.



This was a GREAT story. It made my day. So good to see that we still have decent, compassionate, charitable folks like he.

Mr. Jay Singh, please take a bow. You have done all of us Asians proud. Good on YOU.

This is from the story:

“He said, ‘I’m hungry. I’m stealing it for myself and my younger brother.’ I said you need food? I’ll give you food. That’s not a problem,” Singh said.

Mr. Singh, modestly, attributed this compassion and charity to ‘Indian culture’. That is true.

But, I have a hunch that it goes beyond that.

I cannot, alas, be 100% sure, but I suspect that Mr. Jay Singh is a sikh — despite the lack of a hat on his head, or a bracelet on his arm.

Jay Singh can very well be a Sikh name.

All ‘Singhs’ are NOT Sikhs, BUT ALL Sikh men are ‘Singhs’. Get that. Having a last name Singh is the norm for a Sikh man.

So, why am I making a big deal that he might be a Sikh.

Sikhs have a deeply ingrained tradition when it comes to charity and giving — especially food to the needy.

I know quite a few Sikhs. Most are AMAZING folk. Generous to a fault.

That bracelet they are supposed to wear bears testament to that. They wear it to remind them that that is the hand with which they do good.

Sikhs, because some wear turbans and have beards, are often mistaken for Muslims. They are not Muslims.

Get to know a Sikh.

This just happens to be a great time to talk about Sikhs. They have a major holiday, ‘Vaisakhi‘, that always coincides with the Sinhala New Year, coming up this Sunday, April 14.

First The Indians Litter Space, Then Israel Litters The Moon!

by Anura Guruge


This from CNBC. Google for plenty more.



Yes, accidents happen.

But, it is a shame that we now have litter and debris on the Moon! Yes, on the Moon.

They are claiming that Mount Everest is now like a garbage dump. It would be a shame if we had debris all over the surface of the Moon.

Yes, of course, they didn’t want it to happen, but did they do adequate testing to really, really avoid a failure. I remember reading that their very first rocket burn failed due to a basic programming error. I, alas, did a lot of work with Israeli high tech companies during ‘dot.com’. I learnt that they are cavalier and rush the software. SMILE.

Well maybe it is time for the IAU to step in and start policing and regulating space shots — whether just orbital, to the Moon or Mars.

‘Brainsway’, A Maker Of ‘Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation’ (TMS) Equipment, Filing For ‘Hail-Mary’ U.S. IPO.

Stock performance in Tel Aviv.

Click to ENLARGE and goggle. 


I was researching the intriguing ‘PinterestIPO when this caught my eye. I knew exactly who they were. So, I had to do a bit of investigating.

Wow. Their stock performance in Israel has not been stellar — and that is saying it kindly.

I would NOT touch this U.S. IPO. The stock, in Israel, right now, seems to be on a downward trajectory.

Also seems a bit late in the day to do an U.S. IPO. They went public in Israel 12-years ago!

During ‘dot.com’ I did a ton of work for a number of Israeli high-tech companies. Great folks to work with, but I kind of learnt one thing. It is not easy for outsiders to make money in Israeli companies. Yes, of course, there are exceptions.

This one does not fill me with optimism. But, you can check it out.

Did You Know That Israel Just Passed A Parliamentary Bill Proclaiming That It Is Principally A Jewish State?

I am an avowed news junkie and consume a lot of cable news a day, morning, noon and night. But, I am sure I did NOT hear about this either on CNN and MSNBC last week.

I happened to see it when I was scanning through “Sky News” last night.

I was shocked — mainly in that I had not heard about it.

This seems like a MAJOR change in Israel’s status — but folks are claiming that it is not so. That it is only codifying the obvious and what has been the law of the land since its inception in 1948. Though I have visited Israel once, have done a ton of work for Israeli companies and have an alter-ego in Israel, I am not qualified to really tell you what-is-what.

My gut feel is that this is NOT good.

When I then hear that this could only have got approved under a Donald Trump presidency, it gets me worried further.

It just doesn’t sound kosher to I.

Looks like they are discriminating against all of the now-Jewish folk that live in Israel — and 25% of the population is indeed non-Jewish.

You should look it up. Appears that the Wall Street Journal did cover it bit my days of reading the WSJ on a daily basis are long gone.

IF You Did Not See “America’s Got Talent” ‘Golden Buzzer’ Winner This Week — “Zurcaroh”.

by Anura Guruge



YOU have to watch THIS. You will THANK ME for it.

Pretty amazing. I have over the years seen plenty of acrobatic, aerial stuff, BUT this was still pretty amazing.

I thought they were from Israel. NO. Brazil. Do not ask me how so many of them were able to come over and WHO paid for it.

This was the last act of AGT 2018 week one (i.e., this week (May 29)). Prior to this act there had been nothing that special. But, this!

Enjoy. Be amazed.

Jews & ‘Atheists’ Will Live Longer In The Future — Per ‘PEW Research Study’.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE.


This is kind of wild.

BUT, I think I kind of found the explanation. If you read the fine print it it says the data is from the UN — and that life expectancy within countries is NOT available!

Bingo. I looked up the life expectancy for Israel. 82.05. So, that is how Jews lead the table.

Not sure where they found the data for the ‘unaffiliated’ — what I treated as ‘atheists‘, though I am fully aware that ‘unaffiliated’ is broader and includes folks like I who do not believe in any religion per se, irrespective of a belief in God.

Now it makes more sense and I can see why Muslims prop up the table. They were using data from countries ravaged by violence.

Hhhmmmm.

So, nowhere near as ‘good’ as it initially looks.

But, I wanted to share.

The Nazi, Adolf Eichmann, One Of The Architects Of The Holocaust, Was Hanged This Day 55-Years Ago — In Israel.

by Anura Guruge



One of the worst among what was a sorry cabal of murderers and thugs. He joined the Nazis when 26. He was hanged 30 years later.

Being the coward he was he fled Germany in 1945 as the end was near. Israel’s Mossad located and captured him in Argentina in 1960.

He was supposed to be hung by 11:59pm on March 31. But, they had some technical difficulties and the execution did not take place till June 1. Some sources still have March 31, 1962 as the date of his death.
