For the love of Amba: How I came to eat swarma with a cabbie in Tel Aviv

“Now you are not a customer, you are a friend. I can smoke,” Ofer, my uber driver turned friend said to me as he leant over to swipe his phone, turning off the metre. As he quickly flicked open the box that was in his shirt pocket, he turned to me, in as much as one can turn in a car seat, “Want a cigarette?“ I was back in Israel again a lot sooner than I had expected. In fact, I only left two-weeks prior thinking I’d be back in July. Instead I was back after one of my guides to Hebron messag...

ClimaCell bets on IoT for better weather forecasts

To accurately forecast the weather, you first need lots of data — not just to train your forecasting models but also to generate more precise and granular forecasts. Typically, this has been the domain of government agencies, thanks to their access to this data and the compute power to run the extremely complex models. Anybody can now buy compute power in the cloud, though, and as the Boston and Tel Aviv-based startup ClimaCell is setting out to prove, there are now also plenty of other ways to ...

Israel launches dozens of Gaza strikes after rockets target Tel Aviv

Flight Review: El Al Business Class (787-9) From New York to Tel Aviv

I have long been fascinated by El Al. Since they became a Qantas codeshare partner in 2017, I have wanted to experience the Israeli national airline.

But when El Al took delivery of their first Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner in 2017, I was set determined to experience their long-haul product. It only took me two-years!
