At 8 a.m. on December 31, 2015, I found myself in the studio of Israel s Channel 2 morning show. Despite the coffee and the adrenaline, I felt sleepy, almost apathetic. Id taken half a sleeping pill at midnight to calm my thoughts and get a few hours rest. Its effects hadnt entirely faded. As the soundman hooked up my microphone, my glance fell to the table. Among the colorful coffee mugs, I saw the front pages of Israels three major daily newspapers. I saw photographs of me next to those of Naftali Bennett , the Minister of Education, and the glaring headlines: A Tale of Love and Darkness. Banned Book: A Bestseller. Education Ministry, Fearing Assimilation, Rejects Novel About Arab-Jewish Love Affair. That was my first glimpse of the public storm that would leave me, blinking in bewilderment, at its center; the raging whirlwind that would transform my novel into a symbol of the threat to freedom of expression; the unforgiving jungle peopled with aggressive politicians and entangled with egos and agendas; the pent-up shock that would pummel me as I watched a senior politician a minister slander me and my book, distorting my words until they were unrecognizable.

The bar area was packed, nobody could stand or sit comfortably.” “Then all of a sudden people kind of dispersed, tabs were settled and McAfee walked in.” “When they arrived he walked straight through and shouted down the bar, nodded to two other people to follow.” “It was a really mix-matched group. Some were scarred and scary, others were sharply dressed, but I think McAfee was wearing a tracksuit! He stood out, to say the least,” the insider said.

NORWEGIAN Joachim Ronning will direct the adaptation of "Micro", a novel that was left unfinished by Michael Crichton when he died in 2008. Steven Spielberg and Frank Marshall, the duo behind "Jurassic Park", will produce the film. "Micro" tells the tale of a group of biotechnology students lost in a tropical jungle after having been shrunk to the point where they are only half an inch in height. The techno-thriller on which the film is based was published posthumously in 2011, three years after the death of Michael Crichton. The American author had written one third of the book when he died. His publisher Harper Collins subsequently tasked a writer specialized in bioterrorism to complete the novel. Two years after his purchase of the adaptation rights, Steven Spielberg, via his company Amblin Entertainment, has moved the project forward with the appointment of a director.

How would you describe the period we're in now, in terms of beer history? This is the definitely the age of craft beer. In the last decade, weve seen an explosion of new craft breweries.
