The Obama Administration’s FY2013 budget request includes $3.1 billion in Foreign Military Financing for Israel and $15 million for refugee resettlement, a new report by the Congressional Research Service has revealed.
The report, available to download here, said that “Israel is the largest cumulative recipient of U.S. foreign assistance since World War II.
“To date, the United States has provided Israel $115 billion in bilateral assistance. Almost all U.S. bilateral aid to Israel is in the form of military assistance, although in the past Israel also received significant economic assistance.
In addition, all U.S. assistance earmarked for Israel is
delivered in the first 30 days of the fiscal year, while most other recipients normally receive aid in
"Some Americans have come to the Middle East looking for oil. We came to the Middle East looking for brains, and we stopped at Israel“

Israel isn't worth an American dollar. America should be ashamed that we give billions to a racist apartheid state like Israel while our own country is falling apart. Most of the money is nothing more than corporate welfare for the war machine in America and if Israel can't afford it we just give it to them at the taxpayers expense. And if they don't buy weapons they buy our politicians.

Two distinct opportunities stem from brain communication technology
SOURCE: Team analysis
Bidirectional communication between the brain and machines/computers.
Reading and interpreting brain activity to allow a user to operate a machine using thought alone.
Building on brain plasticity and adaptability to form complex interactions between the brain and the machine.
Stimulating nerves to send the brain feedback from the machine such as sensory feedback (e.g., heat).
Brain machine interface
Using electric or magnetic stimulation, it is possible to manipulate the electromagnetic field generated by neuron electrical activity.
Stimulation devices can activate neurons and modulate the central nervous system.
Manipulation technologies vary by level of invasiveness and ability to target specific brain areas.
Neurostimulation can help treat disorders such as epilepsy, pain, Parkinson’s, depression and OCD.
