FAA Halts All US Flights To Israel
Delta Airlines announced Tuesday that it is halting all flights to Israel indefinitely as violence wrecks the region, according to the Associated Press.
United Airlines has also decided to suspend flights to and from Tel Aviv until further notice, according to a company spokesperson.
A Delta flight from New York to Tel Aviv was diverted on Tuesday amid reports that a rocket landed near Ben Gurion Airport, the AP reports. The plane turned around mid-flight and headed to Paris.
U.S. Airways canceled its Tuesday flight from Philadelphia to Tel Aviv.
While Delta and United have issued indefinite suspensions of service to Israel, the Federal Aviation Administration has banned U.S. airlines from flying to or from Ben Gurion for 24 hours.
There have been several red alerts in Lod, the town near Tel Aviv where the international airport is located, since the escalation between Israel and the Palestinian Islamist group Hamas, a U.S.-designated terrorist organization, began two weeks ago.
It’s long been thought that the potential inoperability of Ben Gurion is a strategic red line for Israel.
"We do not want missiles on Petah Tikva, or Grads on the Ben-Gurion international airport," Benjamin Netanyahu said during a major 2009 address on the peace process at Bar Ilan University, early during his term as Israel’s Prime Minister.
Israel has other commercial airports, in Haifa, the Red Sea resort city of Eilat, and Sde Dov, in northern Tel Aviv. But Haifa and Eilat have both come under rocket fire during this latest conflict, and the Eilat airport doesn’t have a long enough runway to accommodate a trans-Atlantic jet liner.
Here’s the statement from Delta:
Delta has suspended service until further notice to and from Ben Gurion International Airport in Tel Aviv and its New York-JFK hub. Delta, in coordination with the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration, is doing so to ensure the safety and security of our customers and employees.
Delta flight 468, a Boeing 747 from JFK with 273 passengers and 17 crew, diverted to Paris-Charles de Gaulle Tuesday after reports of a rocket or associated debris near the airport in Tel Aviv. Delta is working to reaccommodate these customers.
Delta continues to work closely with U.S. and other government resources to monitor the situation. A customer waiver for travel to Tel Aviv is in effect and published on delta.com.
United sent this statement to Business Insider:
We are suspending operations to/from Tel Aviv until further notice. We are working with government officials to ensure the safety of our customers and our employees and will continue to evaluate the situation.
And the FAA sent this statement:
At 12:15 EST on July 22, 2014, the FAA issued a notice to airmen (NOTAM) informing U.S. airlines that they are prohibited from flying to or from Israel’s Ben Gurion International Airport for a period of up to 24 hours. The notice was issued in response to a rocket strike which landed approximately one mile from Ben Gurion International Airport on the morning of July 22, 2014. The NOTAM applies only to U.S. operators, and has no authority over foreign airlines operating to or from the airport.
The FAA immediately notified U.S. carriers when the agency learned of the rocket strike and informed them that the agency was finalizing a NOTAM.
The FAA will continue to monitor and evaluate the situation. Updated instructions will be provided to U.S. airlines as soon as conditions permit, but no later than 24 hours from the time the NOTAM went into force.
The U.S. State Department issued a travel warning for Israel, the West Bank, and Gaza on Monday that recommended that U.S. citizens defer any non-essential travel to those areas.

30 Smart Answers To Tough Interview Questions
Some job interviewers ask tough questions to trip you up or to get you to reveal information you may be trying to conceal. Others want to get a better sense of your thought process or see how you respond under pressure.
Whatever the reason, you’ll want to be prepared.
In her book “301 Smart Answers to Tough Interview Questions,” Vicky Oliver says in order to prevail, you need to “trounce your competition.”
"You could be competing against someone with three times your experience, or conversely, against someone who can do the job at half your salary level," she says.
One of the best ways to stand out: have the smartest answers to the toughest questions.
Q: What is your biggest weakness that’s really a weakness, and not a secret strength?
A: I am extremely impatient. I expect my employees to prove themselves on the very first assignment. If they fail, my tendency is to stop delegating to them and start doing everything myself.
To compensate for my own weakness, however, I have started to really prep my people on exactly what will be expected of them.
Q: Will you be out to take my job?
A: Maybe in about 20 years, but by then, I suspect you’ll be running the entire company and will need a good, loyal lieutenant to help you manage this department!
Q: You have changed careers before. Why should I let you experiment on my nickel?
A: As a career-changer, I believe that I’m a better employee because I’ve gained a lot of diverse skills from moving around. These skills help me solve problems creatively.

The greatest threats to the Android ecosystem
All mobile apps can be hacked. A group of hackers with enough time and dedication can gain access to, and reverse engineer, even the most secure app environment. Android represents 80 percent of the smartphone OS market, according to ABI research, and its open development environment exposes the platform to certain unique threats from hackers and malware. While Android security experts debate the merits of installing antivirus software on Android devices, they ignore a host of potential dangers that lurk just below the surface — critical threats no one in our industry talks about. In an effort to strengthen the… [Continue Reading]

Israel Is Losing Control of the Gaza Media War
The picture from Gaza seemed like so many other conflict zone photos — until you began to notice the details.
The lifeless arm of a Palestinian boy cradled by an adult running across the beach. The sand studded with what looks like brush, but is really pieces of something shattered. A small child lies face down in the sand, legs jutting out at odd angles, seemingly struck dead.
— Carlos Saul Duque (@saulduque) July 17, 2014
The picture, shot by the New York Times photographer Tyler Hicks, quickly became one of the most discussed pictures of the conflict. With heartbreaking clarity, it showed the faces of a few of the Palestinian civilian victims killed by Israeli rockets, and quickly ricocheted around Twitter and Facebook Read more…More about Twitter, Israel, Social Media, Gaza, and Media

13 Skills You Can Master In 10 Minutes Or Less
Most useful skills, such as learning a new language or mastering the art of cooking, can’t be conquered in a day.
However, there are several important life skills you can pick up almost instantly, and a recent Quora thread polled users on their favorite ones.
Here are some of the best responses, with a few of our own thrown in.
After all, you never know when you’ll need to turn your watch into a compass or Photoshop your vacation pictures.
Identify the freshest strawberries: “Smell them. If they smell like strawberries, buy them; they will taste divine. If they look gorgeous but have no smell, they will have no taste. Simple and foolproof.” —Cyndi Perlman Fink
…and oranges: “Pick up the orange or grapefruit. If it feels light, it’s not juicy and will taste rather woody. Go through the bin picking the ones that feel heaviest compared to oranges or grapefruits of a similar size. They’ll be the tastiest ones.” —Karen Opas
Remove tourists from vacation photos: "Set your camera on a tripod. Take a picture about every 10 seconds until you have about 15 shots. Open all the images in Photoshop by going to File > Scripts > Statistics. Choose: ‘median’ and select the files you took. Photoshop finds what’s different in the photos and simply removes it.” —Vishal Gala
Learn how to speed read: “The first thing you need to do is eliminate the voice inside your head. Read with your eyes. ONLY. Whatever you do don’t use the voice inside your head. As you learn to do this part go ahead and read word by word and go over the lines with your finger. Just work on eliminating the voice. Why? You cannot say words nearly as fast as you can comprehend them … Since you’re reading with your eyes, try reading two or three words at a time, and then move up once you get comfortable.” —Raj Rai
Calm nervousness: “Chew gum when you’re approaching a situation that would make you nervous, like public speaking or bungee jumping. If we are eating, something in our brain reasons, ‘I would not be eating if I were [in] danger. So I’m not in danger.’” —Abhishek A. Singh
Turn your watch into a compass: “Hold your watch horizontally and point it so that the hour hand is facing into the sun. At the center point between the 12 and the hour hand is your north/south line, with north facing away from the sun. So if the hour hand is pointing at 4, for example, the 2 would point towards the south, and the 8 would point towards the north. Just remember, this only works in the Northern Hemisphere; and during Daylight Savings Time you would use the 1 instead of the 12 to determine the center line.” —Amarnath Ganesh
Easily insert mathematical symbols and special characters into Word documents: “Insert all your required symbols just on an arbitrary line in the document, for easy access. Open up the configuration for your word processor, and find the auto-correction/auto-replacement settings. Add auto-correction rules for each of your symbols, assigning them a kind of ‘command word’ that can be easily typed. An example is “/pi” (no quotes), that would auto-correct to the actual Greek character.” —Trey Brisbane
Save time with computer shortcuts: When using Chrome on a Mac, ⌘+a selects all; ⌘+c copies; ⌘+x cuts; and ⌘+v pastes. You can also use ⌘+n to open a new window and ⌘+t to open a new tab. See a more comprehensive list of shortcuts here.
Recover when you forget someone’s name immediately after meeting them: Ask them to put their number in your phone. It’s the best way to get their name without even asking for it. Typically, they will enter both their first and last names, along with their number. It’s a great way to stay in touch with them in the future and also to assure you won’t forget their name again.
