Israeli Shekel

Israeli Shekel

The Israeli new shekel (Hebrew: שֶׁקֶל חָדָשׁ‎ Sheqel H̱adash; Arabic: شيكل جديد‎ šēkal jadīd; sign: ₪; code: ILS), also known as simply the Israeli shekel and formerly known as the New Israeli Sheqel (NIS), is the currency of Israel and is also used as a legal tender in the Palestinian territories of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip. The new shekel is divided into 100 agora. The new shekel has been in use since 1 January 1986, when it replaced the hyperinflated old shekel at a ratio of 1000:1. The currency sign for the new shekel ⟨ ₪ ⟩ is a combination of the first Hebrew letters of the words shekel (ש) and ẖadash (ח) (new). Alongside the shekel sign, the following abbreviations of NIS, ש"ח‎ and ش.ج‎ are also used commonly to denominate prices.

Platinum Ounce

Platinum is a chemical element with symbol Pt and atomic number 78. It is a dense, malleable, ductile, highly unreactive, precious, silverish-white transition metal. Its name is derived from the Spanish term platino, meaning "little silver".Platinum is a member of the platinum group of elements and group 10 of the periodic table of elements. It has six naturally occurring isotopes. It is one of the rarer elements in Earth's crust, with an average abundance of approximately 5 μg/kg. It occurs in some nickel and copper ores along with some native deposits, mostly in South Africa, which accounts for 80% of the world production. Because of its scarcity in Earth's crust, only a few hundred tonnes are produced annually, and given its important uses, it is highly valuable and is a major precious metal commodity.Platinum is one of the least reactive metals. It has remarkable resistance to corrosion, even at high temperatures, and is therefore considered a noble metal. Consequently, platinum is often found chemically uncombined as native platinum. Because it occurs naturally in the alluvial sands of various rivers, it was first used by pre-Columbian South American natives to produce artifacts. It was referenced in European writings as early as 16th century, but it was not until Antonio de Ulloa published a report on a new metal of Colombian origin in 1748 that it began to be investigated by scientists. Platinum is used in catalytic converters, laboratory equipment, electrical contacts and electrodes, platinum resistance thermometers, dentistry equipment, and jewelry. Being a heavy metal, it leads to health problems upon exposure to its salts; but due to its corrosion resistance, metallic platinum has not been linked to adverse health effects. Compounds containing platinum, such as cisplatin, oxaliplatin and carboplatin, are applied in chemotherapy against certain types of cancer.As of 2018, the value of platinum is $833.00 per ounce.

Grapevine: An ongoing legacy
Grapevine: An ongoing legacy

What do Lord Roderick Balfour, former Jewish Agency chairman Natan Sharansky and the State of Israel have in common? All three came into being in 1948. The interesting coincidence came to light this week at a gala dinner celebrating the 101st anniversary of the Balfour Declaration hosted by the Israel Britain and the Commonwealth Association at the Hilton Hotel, Tel Aviv. Lord Balfour, who is no stranger to Israel, and Sharansky were the guest speakers. Balfour – utilizing that characteristically British mix of wry self-deprecation, humor and wit – kept his audience alert as he made some interesting historical and emotional points. Sharansky noted that 101 years earlier, news of the Balfour Declaration and the Bolshevik Revolution had been published on the same day in newspapers. Not much attention was paid at that time to the Balfour Declaration, but the Bolshevik Revolution was hailed as something that would change the course of history. Before either of them spoke, there were the traditional toasts to the president of Israel and the queen of England. In making the toast to President Reuven Rivlin, British Ambassador David Quarrey said he was a great admirer of Rivlin, but was taken aback when presenting his credentials when Rivlin had asked him on camera when the queen would visit Israel. Although that visit did not take place, Quarrey was delighted to have accompanied Prince William to meet the president.
