The first leg last week in Ramla ended with a 61-61 tie.

Team captain Shay Doron – the first Israeli woman in WNBA, Laine Selwyn, Tanasha Wright and the other players in black and yellow celebrated a historic achievement in the history of the club, which until this season has reached two European semi-finals (in 1998 and 2008), but never made it to the end – until now.

Israeli electric car pioneer unveils its first battery-changing station, says process takes five minutes – quicker than filling up gas

Electric car company Better Place has unveiled its first battery-changing station, a major milestone in the company’s planned rollout of the world’s first nationwide battery-charging grid.

At Wednesday’s demonstration in Kiryat Ekron, cars drove atop a sliding panel that opened to reveal a deep pit. From underneath, a robotic arm replaced drained batteries with fully charged ones.

Better Place says the process takes about five minutes – quicker than filling up at a gas station. CEO Shai Agassi says 40 stations will be built throughout Israel this year.

Better Place is building a network of charging stations in markets around the world, beginning with Israel and Denmark. Its partner, Renault, is making the cars, which are to be sold in Israel by the end of 2011

Legendary musician to give one concert at Ramat Gan Stadium on June 20, shortly after celebrating his 70th birthday

Legendary American singer-songwriter will perform in Israel on June 20, Ynet has learned, following long negotiations with Israeli producer Marcel Avraham.

The concert will be held at the Ramat Gan Stadium as part of Dylan’s world tour, and its Israeli producer will be Gadi Oron.

Many efforts have been made in recent years to bring the veteran musician to the Holy Land. Dylan and his band members are expected to land in Israel several days before the concert.

Dylan, one of the most important musicians in modern music, will celebrate his 70th birthday in May. He will arrive in Israel as part of a world tour, which will be launched in Asia in about two weeks and will end in Demark in late June.

This will be Dylan’s third concert in Israel. He performed here in the past in 1987 and 1993, and visited the country during the 1960s.

The concert is expected to include songs from Dylan’s entire career. It is unclear how long he plans to stay in Israel and whether he intends on visiting different tourist sites across the country.
