Israel, dominated by desert, now has so much affordable water that it exports it to neighboring countries. With California facing a chronic drought, no time is better than now to hear from one of Israel’s leading water authorities. Join us for a dynamic panel of Israeli and Californian water experts as they probe how we can rethink our approach to this critical resource.

Date: April 12th @ 6:30pm
Location: Levy Family Campus
14855 Oka Road, Los Gatos

Hi there,
My name is Oded, I am a graduate student at UCSC heading back to Israel at the beginning of October.
I am looking for anyone who might be returning/moving to Israel and is renting a container to ship all their stuff.
I don't have a lot of possessions, but what I do have needs more than just two suitcases and a 24kg limit. I would mainly like to ship books and cloths. I would need a very small corner in the container, and would be happy to pay for my share of the space.

You can either reply here or send me an email at olonai@ucsc.edu

Hope to hear from you soon :)

Oded

Get rich with PayPal
THE PAYPAL 6 DOLLAR MONEY-MAKING METHOD


All you need is:


1) An email address
2) A PayPal account
3) $6.00


WHAT IS IT?????


The idea is that of a system that takes advantage of the power of
compounding. And in a big way, let me tell you. First and foremost
understand that there are countless spin-offs of this system that try
to
make a
"quick buck" off of people. Long lists, the 5 & 10 dollar trees, the
birthday systems,
etc... Those spin-offs do make money because of the ease of
implementation
of this idea, but they do NOT use the compounding advantage. This
system
is THE LEGIT and PROFITABLE one.


Here is how it works...


There is a list of 6 email addresses (you'll see it as you read
further).
Each of these people has already taken part in this system. When
someone new
comes along (such as yourself) he/she removes #1 off of the list,
moves the other five email addresses up one position (i.e. #6 goes to
#5,
#5 to #4, etc.), and places their PayPal email address in the #6
position. This process is what develops the power of compounding. The
bottom line is this


HONESTY and INTEGRITY CREATES PROFITABILITY.


Following this EXACT process is what creates the money, and that is
why this system
has been raved about in the media. Altering the system creates weak
results. The legality of this system comes from the idea that you are
of course creating a mailing list, and a "service" is being provided
(more on that later.) Now on to how your $6.00 creates BIG money...


INSTRUCTIONS:


STEP 1:


The first thing to do is highlight and SAVE this entire post in word
or notepad on your computer so you can come back to it later.
After that, if you are not already a PayPal user you need to go to
the PayPal website at paypal.com and SIGN UP.
If you want to be able to receive credit card payments from other
people then
you will need to sign up for a PREMIER or BUSINESS account (not just
a
PERSONAL account).
This is highly recommended to allow others easy payment
options. In order to place the initial $6 into your account, you will
have to verify your bank account with PAYPAL (which may take a few
days). PAYPAL is 100% secure and is used by millions of people
worldwide.


STEP 2:


Here is where the action occurs. The first thing to do is to send a
$1.00 payment to each of the 6 email addresses on the current list
from your PayPal account. To do this quickly and successfully, follow
these simple steps:


1. Login to PayPal and click on the "Send Money" tab near the top of
the screen


2. In the "Recipient's Email" field enter the email address


3. In the "Amount" field enter "1" (This is your $1.00 payment in
USD
US Dollars)


4. In the "Category" field select "Service" (Keeping it legal)


5. In the "Subject" field type "EMAIL LIST"


6. In the "MESSAGE" field enter "PLEASE PUT ME ON YOUR EMAIL LIST".
By
doing this, you are creating a service and maintaining the legality
of
the system by "paying" for the service.


7. Finally, click on the "Continue" button to complete the payment.


8. Repeat these steps for each of the 6 email addresses. That's it!
By
sending the $1.00 payment to each address, you are implementing the
compounding POWER of the system. You will reap what you sow!
Here is the current e-mail list:
*************************************************

 
1. cybergeeks@gmail.com
2. michaeldonals@yahoo.com
3. JulebnieOrtiz@gmail.com
4. PatriciaDiaz2007@Yahoo.Com
5. tomb@bolonco.com
6. 2k11kw@gmail.com



************************************************


STEP 3:


Now take the #1 email off of the list that you see above (from your
saved file), move the other addresses up (6 becomes 5, 5 becomes 4,
etc.) and add YOUR email address (the one used for your PayPal
account) as number 6 on the list. This is the only part of the
document that
should be changed. ** Make sure your email address is the one you
have registered with PayPal **


STEP 4:


Post your amended article created in Step3 to at least 200 newsgroups
or message
boards. Keep in mind that there are tens of thousands of groups
online!
All you need is 200, but remember the more you post the more money
you
make -
as well as everyone else on the list! I've began to see money roll in
before I even hit 100 posts, but try to hit around 200 to allow
maximum exposure. Use Netscape, Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari,
or whatever your internet browser is to search for various news
groups,
on-line forums, message boards, bulletin boards, chat sites,
discussions, discussion groups, on-line communities, etc.
For example, log on to any search engine like yahoo.com or google.com
and type
in a subject like;
'MILLIONAIRE MESSAGE BOARD', 'MONEY MAKING DISCUSSIONS',
'MONEY MAKING FORUMS', or 'BUSINESS MESSAGE BOARD', etc. You will
find thousands and thousands of message boards. Click them one by one
and
you will find the option to post a new message. Fill in the subject
which will be the header that everyone sees as they scroll through
the list of postings in a particular group, and post the article with
the
NEW list of email addresses included. THAT'S IT!!! All you have to do
is jump to different newsgroups and post away. After you get the hang
of it, it will take about 30 seconds for each newsgroup.


HOW THE MONEY WORKS:


When you post 200 messages in various forums, it is estimated that at
LEAST 15 people will respond and send you a $1.00 ($15.00). Those 15
will Post 200 Posts each and 225 people send you $1.00 ($225.00),
etc.
through 6 levels of email addresses. For comprehension purposes, here
is an easy viewing chart:


1) 15(1) = 15 people ($1) = $15
2) 15(15) = 225 people ($1) = $225
3) 15(225) = 3375 people ($1) = $3375
4) 15(3375) = 50625 people ($1) = $50625
5) 15(50625) = 759375 people ($1) = $759375


As you can see, your $6.00 has multiplied exponentially. What other
opportunity that is as simple as this can cash in the way this can?!
I'm not going to say this is going to make everyone over $800,000,
but within a few WEEKS you begin to see results, thanks to the speed
of
the internet!
When your name is no longer on the list, take the latest posting in
the newsgroups and begin the process again. Simply amazing...
One other tip to speed up the process even more:
You can send out your amended post (after you complete the process
and add your PAYPAL email address to the list) to the contacts you
already have in YOUR email address book! It is AMAZING how fast this
works.


REMEMBER...


HONESTY AND INTEGRITY = PROFITABILITY
YOUR NAME COULD CYCLE FOR A LONG TIME! THIS MAKES IT THE GIFT THAT
KEEPS ON GIVING.


REMEMBER, THE MORE NEWSGROUPS YOU POST IN, THE MORE MONEY YOU WILL
MAKE!!

Amazingly, the process of brainstorming hasn't really changed since the term was coined in 1953. Yet everything else has: we're facing enormous problems in economics, politics, healthcare, and the environment. Can Social Media tools be adapted to help us work together to discover solutions? My students and I have been working on a new approach to online brainstorming at UC Berkeley called Opinion Space. To achieve scale and speed, we employ techniques from robotics: non-linear spatial models that present a broad diversity of ideas and higher-order statistical filtering that rapidly extract the most valuable ideas (the signals) from the noise. I'll describe the system and how it is being used by the US Department of State, GeneralMotors, Unilever, and Humana.

Ken Goldberg is craigslist Distinguished Professor of New Media at UC Berkeley, where he and his students investigate robotics, art, and social media. Goldberg directs the Automation Sciences Research lab and is Faculty Director of the CITRIS Data and Democracy Initiative. Goldberg earned dual degrees in Electrical Engineering and Economics from the University of Pennsylvania (1984) and MS and PhD degrees from Carnegie Mellon University (1990). He joined the UC Berkeley faculty in 1995 where he is Professor of Industrial Engineering and Operations Research (IEOR), with secondary appointments in Electrical Engineering/Computer Science (EECS), Art Practice, the School of Information, and in the Department of Radiation Oncology at the UCSF Medical School.

Goldberg has published over 170 peer-reviewed technical papers on algorithms for robotics, automation, and social information filtering; his inventions have been awarded eight US Patents. He is Editor-in-Chief of the IEEE Transactions on Automation Science and Engineering (T-ASE), Co-Founder of the African Robotics Network (AFRON), Co-Founder of the Berkeley Center for New Media (BCNM), Co-Founder and CTO of Hybrid Wisdom Labs, Co-Founder of the Moxie Institute, and Founding Director of UC Berkeley's Art, Technology, and Culture Lecture Series.

Goldberg's art installations are related to his research and have been exhibited at venues such as the Whitney Biennial, Berkeley Art Museum, SF Contemporary Jewish Museum, Pompidou Center, Buenos Aires Biennial, and the ICC in Tokyo. Goldberg co-wrote three award-winning Sundance documentary films, "The Tribe", "Yelp", and "Connected: An Autoblogography of Love, Death, and Technology." His artwork is represented by the Catharine Clark Gallery in San Francisco.

Goldberg was awarded the Presidential Faculty Fellowship in 1995 by President Clinton, the National Science Foundation Faculty Fellowship in 1994, the Joseph Engelberger Robotics Award in 2000, and elected IEEE Fellow in 2005. Goldberg lives in the Bay Area with his daughters and wife, filmmaker and Webby Awards founder Tiffany Shlain.

I heard about this place from http://gorenter.com/ and it sure sounds amazing. I think i have a former classmate that moved there with his family and he is really satisfied with the place and the surroundings. This is crucial if you also have children.

Hebrew speaking English Tutor (Berkeley Law graduate)!

Hi all!
A 29 year old recent graduate of Berkeley Law, I am an English tutor as well. One of my favorite populations are Israeli kids because then I get to use my Hebrew! Sometimes children just need a little extra boost with reading, writing, and speaking. If your child does, I would be more than happy to assist. I work with all ages - starting from 4 years of age up through high school. If you're interested in learning more information, please don't hesitate to email me or call me at doritplevine@gmail.com or 510-495-5216. Looking forward to working with you!
