Phoenicia Glass Works Ltd., Israel’s only glass container factory, runs 24/7 and produces a million bottles and containers every day.
The factory, located in the Negev desert, produces some 300,000 defective bottles a day. The defects are ground up and gathered into piles to be melted into new bottles. The rolling hills of glass shards span a few soccer fields and reach up to 50 feet high.
The factory runs nonstop – the ovens must always run to prevent the molten glass from hardening and clogging the equipment.
RISHON LEZION, Israel (AP) — At Israel’s main equine hospital, the animals can be wild patients, creating some unique challenges for the veterinarians treating them.
“They are not good patients,” said Dr. Gal Kelmer, who heads the large animal department at Hebrew University’s Koret School of Veterinary Medicine. “I get a lot of satisfaction when things work.”
Veterinarians at the hospital operate on about two dozen horses a month, most of them pleasure and show horses. To prepare a horse for surgery, anesthesiologists slip an infusion into the animal’s jugular vein, which is harder to dislodge than an IV in the leg.
