    Describing Svika Pick from miles away is almost impossible. Pick is simply a phenomenon you have to see to believe. His hair, his clothing, his attitude, his connection with the fans and his everlasting 70's facade- all make him a one of a kind Israeli persona. However, in his 40...

    March 23, 2011 | 12:01 pm

    At the dawn of the 20th century, the British royals were privy to a spiffy new system for infusing drinking water with carbon dioxide bubbles. It would take 53 years for SodaStream to reach commoners, and another 42 until it was acquired by an Israeli distributor and transformed into...

    It didn’t make Britain’s Top Ten Christmas records, but it’s still a killer version: Lauren Rose sings ‘Hava Nagila’ like you’ve never heard it—or danced it—before!

  • Susanna Hoffs walks like a -- rockstar no, a mom -- rockstar/mom

    By Tom Teicholz

    September 28, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    "Hannah Montana," a Disney Channel program I watch on occasion with my daughter, features a 14-year-old girl with a secret identity: she's actually a rock star. This is an absurd fantasy.

    In real life, the rock star at my daughter's school is a mom. Although she leads a double...

    With Seth Swirsky's Beatles-style haircut and soothing voice, one would probably hand him a guitar rather than a baseball bat. But if Swirsky -- a pop songwriter who has written gold- and platinum-selling albums for artists like Celine Dion and Taylor Dane -- were asked his...
