Well, it is winter here so we expect a bit of rain, wind and cooler temperatures.  That is the weather report today.  

CAARI marches on – the taxis pick us up for our morning community service, back for lunch and off to an afternoon tour.  Today’s tour is i24 News,  a 24 hour TV news station and broadcasts in French, English and Arabic.  Bob Wheelock,  Vice President, Content, spoke to us about the station with great enthusiasm.  He formerly worked for various news USA news stations and now happy to be working at i24 News.

By Pearl: This is a remarkable TV station located in the port of Jaffa. It was the brainchild of a man called Frank MelloulAnd Patrick Drahi who wanted to create a news channel which was impartial and apolitical and accurate.  I have had their APP on my iPhone since last year.  Get the latest international download the APP news i24news. 
After dinner, Miri Eisin, a favorite CAARI lecturer, began her career in the IDF as part of the Israeli intelligence community. She spoke to us about the regional geopolitics. 

Another great day!
