A former major on the IDF general staff, Biran runs an airline that is unusual in other ways. "Our airport employees do everything," she said. "The managers don't have secretaries. Even the pilots get their schedules on the Internet." Biran said Israir has been flying to Europe and Africa since it was founded in 1996, but "the government barred flights to the U.S. in order to protect the interests of ELAL. We sued and two years ago the Supreme Court ruled in our fun favor, so now we're flying to JFK three times a week."

Alfred Hitchcock never thought birds could be anything but a menace to society. In Tel Aviv, where there is a rat problem in some areas, certain birds have become society's best friend. In the Tel Aviv district of Neve Zedek, bordering Jaffa, resi- dents were signing up for free birdhouses. Two volunteers, software engineer Noa Kuperberg and Gal Gingold, a zoology major at Tel Aviv University, were taking photos by Tim Boxer NOA KUPERBERG offers up Nunee the barn owl to chase rats. orders for birdhouses for a barn owl and a falcon. They said these birds, and the houses, will be given to anyone in the community who will take care of them while the birds take care of the rats in the neighborhood. "The birdhouses were designed by an agricultural team at Kibbutz Sde Eliyahu," said volunteer Loni Hendrickson. Maybe Mayor Bloomberg should encourage New Yorkers to raise barn owls and falcons, instead of pigeons, to control New York's ubiquitous rat population. Money In The Sky Jewish National Fund found a unique way to raise funds. Simon Winters, JNF chief executive in Great Britain, has been conducting a car rally from London to Tel Aviv. Driving a Shelby Mustang Cobra 2004, he led the fifth annual car rally over two weeks in May, raising $600,000. Last month he organized something new. He got into his Rockwell Aero-Commander 112 and led 11 other amateur pilots on an inaugural plane rally to Tel Aviv. They raised $120,000 for JNF. David Harrisberg, a London optometrist who's been flying for 20 years, took turns piloting hisAero-Commander 114 with his 19-year-old son Phillip, also a licensed pilot. "As we crossed Israel's coastline," Harrisberg said, "all the pilots sang Hatikvah. I said maybe we should stand, but Phillip said we're so high it's the same thing." Tim Boxer is editor of 15MinutesMagazine. com. GAlL SIMONS choice but to flag him--over sensitive. I dated a guy, over 30 years old, who lived at home with his parents only for the fact that his mother still did his laundry and cooked him din- ner. I wasn't looking to pick up someone else's laundry while mine still sat in my hamper. My arm hairs rose to signal over-enabled. And last, when I'm being taken out for dinner and the conversation centers around my date and about his earning potential, and he never once asks me a question, I inter- nally raise the egocentric flag. If I wanted a "me, me, all about me conversation," I'd pour myselfa glass of wine and talk to a mirror. When you encounter these situations in a blooming rela- tionship you can either ignore them, complain toyour family and friends about your misery, or you can end the relation- ship promptly. In a past relationship, Kara closed her eyes to the wavering commitment flag. "The first time I met my boyfriend, he told me that if he ever got married, it wouldn't be for at least 10-15 years.l should have kept that in mind a year and a half later when he told me he was look- ing for wedding bands--and then suddenly--he went back to his original story/' Cold feet flag perhaps? A red flag is also your in- tuition giving you signs that you should pay attention- -yet they get often ignored. Tori emails to tell us how she picked up on an internal warning and went with it. "I usually get coffee at this nearby cafd on my way to work. On exiting the shop, I kept passing the same guy each morning. Our eyes would often meet and we'd smile. "After several months of these encounters, he finally approached me and asked me out. He seemed nice enough, but when he asked for my phone number I hesitated. Instead, I took his number, but I never called. I couldn't put my finger on it, but I didn't get a positive vibe from him. "When I saw him again, he asked me why I never called. He pleaded for a number until finally, I gave him my work number. When he called, he tried to set up a date. He said, 'Why don't I come pick you up, you can put on a hot bikini and we'll spend the day at the beach.'
