Over past 45 years, Jewish state has won 10 Nobel prizes – major achievement for country of just 7.8 million people. Israel counts most engineers per head, ranks second only to US in number of companies listed on NASDAQ
Full story
More than two dozen bidders, including Stanford University and Columbia University, are competing for the chance to create a city campus for high-tech study.


Mayor Michael Bloomberg has offered land at Roosevelt Island, Governors Island, or the Brooklyn Navy Yard for the project.


Cornell and Technion propose opening a full-scale city campus in 2012, initially in either leased space or at existing Cornell facilities.


The NYC Tech Campus eventually would grow to more than 2 million square feet (200,000 square meters) on Roosevelt Island.


Bidders must submit their proposals by October 28. The winning bid could be announced before the end of the year.
