The mosquito-borne disease is spreading across the globe and has been linked to alarming birth defects and an autoimmune disease that can cause paralysis. Scientific American has been tracking the dengue-like illness since fall 2015

Victorian Detective Camera
*************************************************************
Detective cameras were popular Victorian cameras before the turn of the 19th century that were designed to look something other than a camera. Most were box cameras designed to look like parcels, disguised as watches, binoculars, books, purses, walking sticks, revolvers and rifles, alarm clocks, spyglasses, and so on. Some models were designed to be worn underneath a vest with lens peaking out through a buttonhole and the shutter operated by a long cord. These cameras were popular all over Europe, especially in England, France and Germany. Most are rare and valuable today.

PROJECT TITLE: An affordable AAC device for people suffering from Developmental-Disabilities
GRADE LEVEL: High School - Grades 10-12
PROJECT DESCRIPTION: People suffering from Developmental-Disabilities like ALS are almost entirely paralyzed and this disables them to communicate in any way except using an AAC (Augmentative and Alternative Communication Device) device. Current AAC devices are expensive, slow and bulky. This project suggests an AAC device which is affordable, faster and portable - a system that allows the user to exhale through the nose as Morse Code. It is able to speak and give commands in English using one of 9 different voices.

PROJECT TITLE: A Portable Photocatalytic Electricity Generation and Water Purification Unit
GRADE LEVEL: High School - Grades 10-12
PROJECT DESCRIPTION:  This project relies on photocatalytic reactions to simultaneously purify and sterilize wastewater and to generate electricity using hydrogen produced. This sustainable process only requires titania and light. What’s more is that organic pollutant doesn’t only get decomposed but will also enhance the reaction rate.

PROJECT TITLE: Mimicking fruit fly response patterns for threat evasion of airborne machines
GRADE LEVEL: Middle School - Grades 7-9
PROJECT DESCRIPTION:  Based on the dynamic, unstructured, and unknown nature of the environments in which both flying robots and flying organisms must operate, a novel biologically-inspired approach was used to create a simpler, faster, and more practical method of onboard threat evasion in a flying robot. Thus, a computationally and physically lightweight sensor module inspired by the fruit fly's rudimentary visual system, combined with algorithms to escape from approaching threats by mimicking fruit fly escape behaviors, was used to demonstrate a simpler, faster, and more practical method of onboard threat evasion in a quadrotor (a quadcopter - a multirotor helicopter that is lifted and propelled by four rotors).

The Display Board For Science Fair Projects
As you know, science fair projects are displayed on display boards.

Take in account that a lot depends on a good display board. If your display board is attractive, the visitors (including the judges) will have good impression about it. However, if your display board is cluttered and in a mess, the readers will get a bad impression about your work and will ignore it, no matter how worthy is your research.

Your display should be a promotional presentation and not a full description of your project. Remember, the judges and readers have only a few minutes at their disposal to get impressed by your project.

A general display board layout follows. There are possible other variations for the organization of your science fair project on the display board.

For additional information related to doing a science fair project display board (and keeping notes along the way that make the whole process even easier), see the following: Science Fair Project Display Boards · Perfecting the Project Display Board · Get a Jump Start on the Project Display ...

Story
Introduction

My name is Tzvi Rubin (Julian); born 1954; live in Israel in a little desert town called Dimona (the setting of my first novel).


I have been an avid reader from early age and penned my first novel at the age of twelve in Hebrew.


By profession, I am an electronics and computer technician and those are the position I held in the Israeli army Signal Corps and upon my release, at Bezeq, the Israeli National Telecommunication Company.

I earned my Bachelor’s degree in math and Jewish history at the Open University of Israel and make a living, mainly as an information specialist freelancer and as a math, English and science high school teacher.

I am also very interested in Bible history.


My first juvenile novel, The Orchid Grower, reflects many of my life experiences and interests (children, dogs, sports, science, Internet) . My main goal was to present to the young reader several scientific topics fluently interwoven into an adventure plot in order to encourage science, web and computer literacy among the young. I prefer to write for the pre-puberty age because those youngsters are old enough to understand and young enough not to lose optimism.

Education
  • Open University of Israel
  • Technion, Israel
  • Bezeq Telecommunications College, Jerusalem, Israel
  • Ami Asaf, Elementary School, Dimona, Israel

The hotel is very convenient – affordable prices, superior double rooms, very large, fully equipped with whirlpool bathtubs and other gadgets. The hotel offers free internet, without the need for passwords, small swimming pool and a gym. The lobby is always served hot and cold drinks and biscuits freely. Staff welcoming. And nearby there are various attractions like the Finger Lakes and an amusement park for children and more. Recommended.
