Iconic Israeli snack may curb peanut allergies

Heebonics - Thursday February 26, 2015
According to a paper published Feb. 23 in the New England Journal of Medicine, researchers at King's College London found that keeping U.K. babies thought to be prone to hereditary peanut allergies away from the otherwise healthy nut may in fact be more likely to develop the allergy by not being exposed to the legume when compared to Israeli infants who are fed the popular peanut-flavoured snack Bamba.

We found these two articles from Size Doesn't Matter and ynet to be particularly informative about the study's results.

Take a look.

UberX app now serving Tel Aviv

Heebonics - Thursday February 26, 2015
Uber has received a lot of publicity in the last 18 months or so for significantly disrupting the way we think about grabbing a ride around the cities we live in or the cities we travel to.

The for-hire-vehicle service, which started in Paris in 2008, has benefited city-dwellers with a lower-cost alternative to traditional taxis and has unnerved mainstream industry operators.

Known as the black cab alternative, Uber has just released its UberX app in Tel Aviv.

There are in fact four categories of Uber. UberX is the least expensive in the line of services as drivers use their own everyday vehicles to accommodate a maximum of four travellers. UberXL offers up to six seats in a private SUV or minivan, while UberPlus is for groups of five to seven, and Uber Black Car functions as its executive service.

Those who call on UberX to get around Israel's hippest city will be charged just a small fee for gas.
