Products in Israel

Over the weekend I visited some friends at their lake place for some swimming, kayaking and relaxation. We'd taken some snacks and other food, amongst which were a couple of cans of Pringles® Potato Crisps. At one point I was looking at the can and noticed that there were what seemed to be Hebrew characters printed on the back. I wondered what they were, so I visited their website which had no information about it so I sent them an email asking what the characters meant. Are they actually Hebrew or Arabic? (I'm kinda ignorant of such things). Do they market in Israel or the UAE?

Television Propaganda and You

There is a very excellent show on CBS called 'Criminal Minds'. Well written and engaging, I enjoy watching the show very much. But I've noticed many cases of propaganda in the show. There was a CM Marathon on yesterday and while I've seen other instances of propaganda in the show, one that springs to mind is the use of CCTV surveillance cameras. They showed someone watching the monitors admitting that they aren't there to stop crime, but to catch perpetrators after the fact. In truth, even this is rare. It showed them using the cameras to witness a murder, then follow the 'perp' up out of the subway and onto the street. Unlikely, but it sure makes those cameras look useful, doesn't it?
