In some cases, the billowing dust clouds reached as far as the Atlantic Ocean!

Israel historian responds to critics left and right

Historian Benny Morris has a knack for enraging Israelis of every political stripe.

 

Morris' research on the 1948 war for independence challenged long-standing Zionist narratives that said Israel was not responsible for the creation of 750,000 Palestinian refugees.

BASF seeks GM alternative

BASF seeks GM alternative | USDA-Certified Organic Food | Scoop.it

But directed mutagenesis "allows one to make precise changes in the DNA sequence of the native gene that alters its function to achieve the desired trait, [and is capable of introducing any trait] as long as one knows the target gene associated with the particular trait of interest."
