Marty McFly-style hoverboard finally becomes a reality: £6,000 gadget uses electromagnetic fields to glide along mid-air and suitcase that takes you to the airport

Building Your Self-Image One Tiny Step at a Time

There are special occurrences, situations, and opportunities that help build your self-image in a short time. However, it is more common to improve one tiny step at a time every day than to have quick progress in this area.

The daily question to ask yourself is: "What small improvement can I make now?

Marty McFly would approve! The hoverboard finally becomes a reality

China: Motorized suitcase could take you to the airport

News from Elsewhere... By News from Elsewhere... found by BBC Monitoring

A farmer in China has invented a motorized suitcase which can reportedly carry your clothes and take you to the airport at the same time.

The contraption - with two small wheels at the back and one at the front - is the brainchild of He Liang, a farmer from Hunan Province, reports the Taiwan-based Want China Times. It can carry up to two passengers, cover distances of up to 60km (37 miles) and maintain a speed of up to 20km/h (12mph). It's powered by a rechargeable lithium battery and can be steered with handlebars when seated.

The special suitcase, which He has spent 10 years developing, is dubbed the City Cab. There is apparently just as much space to keep your clothes as with normal luggage and when it's empty it weighs just 7kg (15lb). The newspaper says City Cabs has now been patented as a mufti-functional travel device, and He is hoping to see it on the road soon.

PA justifies murder of Rabbis--anyone is next (including me)

Watch: PA, Hamas Justify Murder of 'Rabbi Terrorists'

New revelations show the Palestinian Authority's (PA) official daily targeted rabbis as enemies just a week before the horrific attack on a Jerusalem synagogue this Tuesday, in which four Jews were murdered as well as a Druze policeman in an attack with hatchets, knives and guns.

The official PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida published an op-ed last Wednesday claiming "the rabbis of the secret societies" are the ones ordering Israel to "set the foundations for an external hegemony," as revealed by Palestinian Media Watch (PMW).

"The Zionist settler ideology does not seek temporary influence or gains...but rather sets the foundations for an eternal hegemony based on the instructions of the 'rabbis' of the secret societies. And all this is in order to take revenge on history and their minority and false persecution complex," read the op-ed.

The same piece said rabbis are "desecrating" Al-Aqsa Mosque, and "are enemies, and they have a hand in everything that is happening: in the issue of ISIS (Islamic State) and its arming, in importing explosives to the Arab lands, in the spread of extremist ideas and the deepening of the doctrinal conflict between Sunnis and Shi'ites. In addition, they are the ones creating the crises. They are the ones igniting the civil wars."

Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) has exposed how despite PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas's condemnation of the synagogue attack - a condemnation his own PA clarified was a lie as it celebrated the "heroic" attack - PA and Hamas leaders have been busy justifying the murderous attack.

The reactions to the attack on the Lebanese Al-Quds TV and Mayadeen TV channels featured such lines as "the settlers are not civilians," "synagogues represent Israeli settlements and extremism," and "Zionist rabbis...are the greatest terrorists in that racist state...these are no civilians, they are terrorists."

Fatah Central Committee member Amal Hamad also got in on the action, telling the PA's Al-Awda TV that the synagogue attack was justified given the status on the Temple Mount where the Jordanian Waqf (Islamic trust) has banned Jewish prayer and Arab rioters clash with police on a near daily basis.

"It was only natural that the outcome of all that has happened would be the operation that we witnessed yesterday," Hamad said.

For those of you who don't like Dennis Miller, who is not Jewish, you may want to reconsider after reading his brilliant comments that follow. Please pass it on to your friends.
  For those who don't know, Dennis Miller is a comedian who has a show called Dennis Miller Live on HBO. Although he is not Jewish, he recently had the following to say about the Middle East situation:
  'A brief overview of the situation is always valuable, so as a service to all Americans who still don't get it, I now offer you the story of the Middle East in just a few paragraphs, which is all you really need.'
Here we go: 
  The Palestinians want their own country. There's just one thing about that: There are no Palestinians. It's a made up word. Israel was called Palestine for two thousand years. Like 'Wiccan,' 'Palestinian' sounds ancient but is really a modern invention. Before the Israelis won the land in the 1967 war, Gaza was owned by Egypt, the West Bank was owned by Jordan , and there were no Palestinians.'
  As soon as the Jews took over and started growing oranges as big as basketballs, what do you know, say hello to the 'Palestinians,' weeping for their deep bond with their lost 'land' and 'nation.'
  So for the sake of honesty, let's not use the word 'Palestinian' any more to describe these delightful folks, who dance for joy at our deaths until someone points out they're being taped. Instead, let's call them what they are: 'Other Arabs Who Can't Accomplish Anything In Life And Would Rather Wrap Themselves In The Seductive Melodrama Of Eternal Struggle And Death.' I know that's a bit unwieldy to expect to see on CNN.  How about this, then: 'Adjacent Jew-Haters.' Okay, so the Adjacent Jew-Haters want their own country. Oops, just one more thing: No, they don't. They could've had their own country. Anytime in the last thirty years, especially several years ago at Camp David . But if you have your own country, you have to have traffic lights and garbage trucks. And Chambers of Commerce, and worse, you actually have to figure out some way to make a living.
  That's no fun. No, they want what all the other Jew-Haters in the region want: Israel . They also want a big pile of dead Jews, of course that's where the Real fun is -- but mostly they want Israel ..
  Why? For one thing, trying to destroy Israel - or 'The Zionist Entity' as their textbooks call it -- for the last fifty years has allowed the rulers of Arab countries to divert the attention of their own people away from the fact that they're the blue-ribbon most illiterate, poorest, and tribally backward on God's Earth, and if you've ever been around God's Earth, you know that's really saying something.
  It makes me roll my eyes every time one of our pundits waxes poetic about the great

history and culture of the Muslim Mideast. Unless I'm missing something, the Arabs haven't given anything to the world since Algebra, and by the way, thanks a hell of a lot for that one.
  Chew this around and spit it out: Five hundred million Arabs; five million Jews.
  Think of all the Arab countries as a football field, and Israel as a pack of matches sitting in the middle of it. And now these same folks swear that if Israel gives them half of that pack of matches, everyone will be pals.
  Really? Wow, what neat news.

    Hey, but what about the string of wars to obliterate the tiny country and the constant din of rabid blood oaths to drive very Jew into the sea? Oh, that? We were just kidding.
  My friend, Kevin Rooney, made a gorgeous point the other day: Just reverse the Numbers. Imagine five hundred million Jews and five million Arabs. I was stunned at the simple brilliance of it. Can anyone picture the Jews strapping belts of razor blades and dynamite to themselves? Of course not.

Or marshaling every fiber and force at their disposal for generations to drive a tiny Arab State into the sea? Nonsense.
  Or dancing for joy at the murder of Innocents? Impossible.
  Or spreading and believing horrible lies about the Arabs baking their bread with the blood of children? Disgusting.
  No, as you know, left to themselves in a world of peace, the worst Jews would ever do to people is debate them to death.
  However, in any big-picture strategy, there's always a danger of losing moral weight. We've already lost some. After September 11th our president told us and the world he was going to root out all terrorists and the countries that supported them. Beautiful. Then the Israelis, after months and months of having the equivalent of an Oklahoma City every week (and then every day) start to do the same thing we did, and we tell them to show restraint.
  If America were being attacked with an Oklahoma City every day, we would all very shortly be screaming for the administration to just be done with it and kill everything
