Ariel University , previously known as the Ariel University Center of Samaria, is an Israeli university located in the Israeli settlement of Ariel in the West Bank.Ariel University was founded in 1982 as a regional branch of Bar-Ilan University. Originally located in the settlement of Kedumim, it moved to Ariel where it built a larger campus and went on to become the largest Israeli public college. In the 2004–05 academic year, the affiliation with Bar Ilan ended and it became an independent college. Ariel University has 26 departments for B.A., B.Sc. and B.Arch. studies, in three faculties and three schools. In addition, Ariel University offers a Master's degree programs for M.A., M.B.A. and M.Sc. In 2014, Ariel University initiated a Ph.D. programs for Doctorate studies also. In 2011, it had a student population of 14,000, with a branch in Tel Aviv. All degrees are recognized by the Council for Higher Education in Israel.Ariel University cooperates with international organizations and universities all over the world. The university and its staff have been the target of boycotts, both in Israel and overseas, for its location beyond the Green Line, in the Palestinian territories.On 17 July 2012, the Council for Higher Education in Judea and Samaria voted to grant the institution full university status. This move was praised by the Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Minister of Education Gideon Saar, Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman and some Knesset members and Nobel Prize in Economics winning mathematician Robert Aumann. The Council of Presidents of Israeli Universities condemned the move. A survey in 2013 found that 65% of the public in Israel supported the recognition of Ariel University as Israel's eighth university. Wikipedia.

The paper summarizes 10-years of experience gained by various groups in the study of liquid marbles. Liquid marbles are non-stick droplets wrapped by micro- or nanometrically scaled particles. Marbles are separated from solid or liquid support by air pockets. This fact determines the unusual non-Amontonian friction inherent for liquid marbles. Scaling laws governing the marbles' shape and dynamics are presented. Liquids and powders used for fabrication of liquid marbles are surveyed. The effective surface tension of liquid marbles is discussed. The paper reviews properties and applications of liquid particles. Liquid marbles demonstrate a potential as micro-reactors, micro-pumps, pH, gas and water pollution sensors. Cosmetics applications and water storage with the use of liquid marbles are of considerable industrial interest. Challenges and trends of future investigations in the field are envisaged. © 2010 Elsevier Ltd.

According to some embodiments of the present invention there is provided a method for detecting locations of navigation interfering devices. The method comprises an action of receiving multiple navigation signal parameter datasets, each from one of multiple satellite signal receivers. The method comprises an action of detecting one or more interference event data according to an interference analysis of at least some of the datasets. The method comprises an action of updating a probability value for each of multiple suspected navigation interference device locations, by a location analysis of the interference event data, where each of the probability values is indicative of a likelihood that the interference event data originates from some of the suspected navigation interference device locations. The method comprises an action of selecting a subset of the suspected navigation interference device locations according to the probability values and outputting the subset.
