How do you see your city? Fascinating, cosmopolitan and exciting – or disturbing and depressing? However you feel about the place you call home, there’s no denying the energy and creativity of the people – we’ve seen the emergence of a new generation of talented artists, determined to break from the stereotypes and misconceptions of the past.
In our new video ‘The Young Professionals’, we’ve tried to capture the spirit and diversity of the people who live here — people who ‘work to live’ rather than ‘live to work’. Tel Aviv is urban living at its best, a place to meet and socialize, and use new media to interact and communicate. It’s a city where individualism is celebrated — quirky and different is always welcome, with the freedom to go wherever you want, whenever you want.
That’s how we see our city, and we want to know how you see yours. The Young Professionals invite you to take part in a visual conversation athttp://bit.ly/yEvSeC, and share your city’s creativity with the world. All you have to do is capture a slice of life using Instagram, upload, and add the tag #ilovemycity
President Shimon Peres met with Google founder Sergey Brin on Thursday, during a tour of Google Headquarters in California. Peres is on a four-day trip through Silicon Valley, where he will promote Israel’s hi-tech industry.
During his visit, Peres received a virtual tour of his childhood neighborhood in Poland with the help of Google Earth’s 3D satellite software.
The virtual tour, which was displayed on five 3D screens, began in Peres’ place of birth – Vishneva (known today as Belarus). Brin continued the tour with a virtual glimpse of the moon, where the two were able to look at a computerized model of the “Apollo 11″ spacecraft.
A statement by the President’s Office said that during the tour, Peres requested to look over Israel and Jerusalem, the Western Wall and the Church of Mary Magdalene, all in 3D.
Following the tour, Brin and Peres held a meeting in which Brin showed Peres some other technological developments.
Peres reportedly asked his host to expand the cooperation with Israel’s R&D centers.
Throughout his four-day visit to Silicone Valley, President Peres also met with Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg on Tuesday, who helped him launch a personal page on Facebook.
In addition, Peres also answered questions from the site’s users and launched a YouTube video clip meant to promote his Facebook page.
