Its effectiveness is verified in the diagnosis of atherosclerosis
A rapid breath test using "electronic nose" (eNose) technology developed at the Technion University in Haifa, northern Israel, was shown to be effective in verifying the diagnosis of atherosclerosis - a disease affecting the arteries - in patients.
The artificial nose uses sensitive, submicroscopic sensors, called nanoparticles, capable of detecting tiny molecular changes in the patient's blood.
The test can identify disease biomarkers and screen high-risk groups for specific diseases, as well as monitor treatments in people with that disease. The technology has already detected a variety of diseases, including certain types of cancer.
The study used eNose technology, which was developed by Professor Hos...

Updated: All the "ribs" have been removed.###Yerushalayim - Aug. 11, 2022 - The iconic "ribs" attached to the giant Belzer Beis Medrash in Yerushalayim are being removed. It's believed that expansions to the shul in all four directions are being planned as well as expansions to the shtibelach and mens mikvah.
The Justice Department on Thursday moved to unseal a warrant authorizing a search of former President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate this week following escalating demands for answers about the unprecedented investigation.
“The public’s clear and powerful interest in understanding what occurred under these circumstances weighs heavily in favor of unsealing,” Justice Department lawyers wrote in a court filing submitted Thursday afternoon.
The move is a departure from the department’s typical practice of staying silent about ongoing investigations, underscoring the significance of the first overt sign of an escalating criminal probe with a former president at the center.
The filing coincided with a public statement from Attorney General Merrick Garl...

The U.S. Department of Transportation is putting $6 million toward revitalizing Penn Station - one of two projects in Maryland to benefit from President Biden's large infrastructure package this year.
The $6 million will be part of a $150 million redevelopment of Baltimore's 111-year-old train station over the next few years.
The federal funding will go toward improving access to the station, including dedicated bus lanes on Charles Street, curb extensions at about 10 bus stops on Charles and St. Paul, access improvements to the Jones Falls Trail (which is part of bicycle and pedestrian connectivity), traffic signal adjustments and crosswalk improvements, replacement of bridge railings, installation of interactive kiosks, public plaza improvements, and a secure b...
Baltimore, MD – Aug. 2022 - Every Shabbos table offers every Jewish family an incredible opportunity by which they can share their joy for Shabbos, for Yiddishkeit and for HaShem with their children.

For the first time since early March, the average cost for a gallon of gas in the U.S. is below $4 a gallon. According to AAA data, gas hit an average of $3.99 a gallon on Thursday after two months of declining prices.
Gas prices are down from a peak of $5.01 a gallon on June 14. Prices remain high compared to this time a year ago when gas was $3.18 a gallon.
California and Hawaii are the only states where gas remains above $5 a gallon. Texas has the lowest average price for gas at $3.49 a gallon.
Demand for gas has declined this summer amid high prices. Earlier this week, AAA compared the current market to July 2020, when many Americans were not traveling due to the pandemic.
There have also been rising domestic and international oil supplies, which helps bring down the cost.
