HERITAGE FLORIDA JEWISH NEWS, APRIL 4, 2014 PAGE 9A By Gloria Yousha--Call I'm not surprised... Actually, I'm never surprised by the brilliance of Israeli scien- tists, professors, doctors, inventers of every sort. So when I read the following in the World Jewish Congress Digest, I repeat, I wasn't surprised: "A Technion professor has devised a superglue to seal surgical incisions without the need for stitches or staples. Prof. HAVAZELET BIANCO-PELED has patented Seal-V glue, a biologically acceptable glue that mechanically seals areas of surgery. Working on wet surfaces to perfectly seal an incision without leakage, the epoxy was reportedly developed from the cell walls of brown algae. The Haifa-based school is said to be seeking FDA approval for commercial applications of Super-V in the U.S." That was one fabulous invention... Now for another fabulous invention. Again from the pages of the World Jewish Congress Digest: "An Israeli developer of a camera that can be swallowed to diagnose digestive tract problems will get $860 million for his vision. The buyer, an Irish company, has reportedly made an offer to Given Imaging Ltd. For its invention of the PillCam. Patients with suspected digestive tract disorders can swallow the diminutive camera, giving diagnosticians an endoscopic view. If Given's share- holders approve the deal, the PillCam becomes the property of Covidien Pic, an Irish company that has acquired three Israeli firms in 2012." (This tends to confirm what I was thinking all along.., if you are not feeling well, go directly to Israel for treatment!) Congress is always talking about Government cuts... (Gee, I hope they don't decide to cut Social Security pay- ments, Medicare, etc., all the benefits I paid into and now rely on. They seem to go after poor people, what with food stamp cuts, education and the like.) While on the social media Facebook recently, I read something posted by our own super-talent, ALAN ROCK, who hosts his own radio program on WUCF, emcees Altamonte Chapel Jazz shows and is a fine musician in his own right. He said this comes from The Blue Street Journal: Salary of retired U.S. president (for life) $450,000; Salary of House & Senate (for life) $174,000; Salary of Speaker of the House $223,500; Salary of Majority/Minority Leaders (for life) $194,400; Average salary for soldier deployed to Afghanistan $38,000; Average income for seniors on Social Security $12,000. (I THINK WE FOUND WHERE THE CUTS SHOULD BE MADE!) Help is on the way... Assisting older adults and their families with the challenges of aging.., that is the mission of the Orlando Senior Help Desk, underthe direction of EMILYNEWMAN, senior resource special- ist. The Jewish Pavilion is now helping families, free of charge, with all issues pertaining to older adults.

Speaking of eating out: Judith meets Isaac at a dance and they seem to hit it off quite nicely.., so much so that they agree to go out for a meal the following night. Isaac says he will pick her up at her house at 8 p.m. The following evening, Judith spends a lot of time getting ready for a possible new romance. She puts on her makeup just so and chooses a lovely dress that makes her look thinner than she is. She even puts on the vintage pearl necklace and matching earrings that her bubbe gave her. She is pleased with how she looks so she goes downstairs to wait for Isaac to arrive. But she is very disappointed when 8 p.m. comes and goes and there is no sign of him. She continues to wait but when 9:30 p.m. rolls around she gives up, starts to cry, runs upstairs to the bathroom and roughly wipes off her makeup, smudging her lipstick over her mouth. She didn't care. She changed from her beautiful outfit to a house shmata and went downstairs to watch TV. But as soon as she sat down, the doorbell rang. It was Isaac holding flowers. He looked at Judith with a worried look on his face and said to her, "Judith, what's going on? I'm nearly two hours late.., and you're still NOT READY?" adult (13+) $5/child; non members: $15/adult $10/child. Temple will provide chicken and matzo.
