Yogati - Eli Marcus - Album Sampler

Popular singer Eli Marcus is debuting a new album and the title track "Yogati" actually personifies his soaring career.

The album was produced by Marcus' cousin Mendy Friedman, who produced his previous album "Energy." For this project, Marcus took a different route, using multiple composers and arrangers.

Some of the choices are more original, such as "Tzadik," which was composed by Eli Marcus' brother Shmueli Marcus of 8th Day fame. Another song, "B'chol Koichoi," is by a talented musician named Shloimy Salzman and is his first recorded composition. Two songs were composed by Mordechai Brezel, who has written hits for Yaakov Shwekey and Simcha Leiner.

Others are classic, with compositions and arrangements by veteran songwriters Moshe Laufer, Pinky Weber, and Yitzy Waldner, and warm "hartzige" compositions and arrangements from the multi-talented Avrumi Berko.

Album will be avalible next week iy"h

One Man's Catch is Another Bird's Meal

Bald Eagle Steals Man's Fish.

Nicholas Batchelder was ice fishing in Windham, Maine, on Jan. 11 with some friends when a bald eagle swooped down and helped himself to a meal.

Batchelder and his friends had made their first catch – a small perch – while fishing on Little Sebago Lake when they saw the bald eagle eyeing them from up above, News Center Maine reported. Quickly, Batchelder set up his GoPro camera and set the perch out on the snow to entice the eagle to come closer. The three friends backed away from the fish, and the eagle flew down and made off with the fresh catch.

Hudi Kowalsky - Azamra - Music Video

In honor of Tu B'shvat a day of starting fresh and the birthday of Reb Nosson of Breslov

אזמרה לאלוקי בעודי
כי נמצא בך נקודה טובה

Sing out to Hashem with all your Strength, for within you is a source of beauty.

Every Song is a Dream and every dream is a Story . 2 years ago I had a dream that the great day had come and the whole world had gathered as one in Yerushalayim. It was Sukkos and everyone was sitting in the great Sukka, however when I tried to enter they said I could not. I simply went outside and sat on a rock and started strumming my guitar. This Niggun came down and suddenly I was joined by a few stray souls, they all began to sing along with me. Before I knew it, there were hundreds of people singing the niggun, carrying me into the Sukka. I thought of the words from the teaching of Reb Nachman in Likutei Mohoran chapter 282 - Azamra! - for in each person is found a good point and from the point Song is born. May we all merit to sing and dance together in the Holy City!

Drive By Help

This guy was moving heavy objects kept inside the trailer of a truck when he lost his balance and fell out of it. He was not thrown completely out of the vehicle as he hung on to the trailer's edge like a monkey on a tree branch. He stayed in that position till a car passing by helped him to get back inside the trailer.

Manually Triggering Avalanches in the Alps

Helicopter crew drop explosives on mountain pistes to trigger an avalanche in after heavy snowfall in incredible footage. 

Rescuers filmed the breath-taking footage as they flew above the slopes of Grimentz, in the Swiss Alps, on January 15.

Explosives can be seen falling on the mountain ridges which causes the snow to cascade down in a domino effect.

Helicopter teams were deployed to trigger controlled avalanches to release snow buildup after more than 39 inches fell in some parts of the region in 24 hours.

A local aviation and rescue company, Air-Glaciers, worked with the local ski station to secure the pistes ahead of their opening for skiers.

This comes after heavy snowfall trapped tourists in hotels in the Alps, with all roads blocked and the only way of leaving or entering was by helicopter.

Rescue teams worked 'as a matter of urgency' to try to open roads to free guests as Switzerland's avalanche institute, SLF, lowered the avalanche risk from the highest level, five, to four.

Frank Techel, an avalanche forecaster at Swiss avalanche research institute SLF, said that roughly 10-13 feet of snow had been dumped on the Zermatt area so far this year, which he called an 'extraordinary' amount for the region in such a short span.

IDF Demolishes Home of Terrorist who Killed Ari Fuld

Israeli security forces leveled the home of Khalil Jabareen in the village in his hometown of Yatta, near Hevron.

During the demolition, a number of violent riots broke out. Dozens of Arabs threw rocks at IDF soldiers, who responded with crowd dispersal means.

Jabareen is responsible for killing Fuld after knifing him in the back at a Gush Etzion mall back in September.

Ari Fuld, a 40-year-old father of four, charged Jabareen after being stabbed and managed to squeeze off a few shots before collapsing. He was evacuated to the Shaare Zedek Hospital in Jerusalem, where died a few hours later from the wounds he suffered in the stabbing.

Jabareen was shot by a civilian passerby and taken to Shaare Zedek Hospital as well.

Last week, the Supreme Court rejected the petition of the family of the terrorist against the demolition order issued for the third floor of the house where the terrorist lived.
