ARE WE GOOD OR BAD?

Thursday, 13th September 2018

 

Are we good or bad? I guess the smart answer is “both”.

Seeing only your good points makes you haughty while seeing only your bad points leaves you vulnerable to depression. Seeing them alternately puts you on an emotional rollercoaster ride. Being aware of both simultaneously creates a healthy balance. You can neither become too high due to you considering your faults nor too low as you know your goodness.

Two Israeli investors scoop £125,000 Dragons Den investment

Entrepreneurs Yosi Romano and Ziv Leinwand walk away with a deal from Touker Suleyman for their device to protect babies in prams from pollution

Two Israeli inventors inspired to innovate by pollution on Finchley Road have walked away from the BBC’s Dragon’s Den TV programme with a £125,000 investment after pitching their device that protects babies in prams.

Yosi Romano and Ziv Leinwand got through a tense encounter with the TV investors during the latest episode of the BBC programme, in which entrepreneurs seek financial backing for new products and services.

The pair’s Brizi device for prams and strollers is designed to protect babies and young children from air pollution, and they told the Dragons that “half the children in the UK live in areas where pollution exceeds the safe recommended level”.

The product’s vents sit either side of the baby’s head. It sucks ambient air from one side, filters it, and blows “clean air” through the other, into a child’s breathing space. The duo said they still need to test the batteries, improve the air-flow and re-design the filter to give it a more commercial look.

They were seeking £100,000 for five percent of the company and left with £125,000 from Touker Suleyman, a multi-millionaire businessman, who paid for a 25 percent stake, reducing to 20 percent when the money was paid off.

“It’s been a learning curve, about what makes for good TV entertainment, with its ups and downs,” said Romano, speaking to Jewish News this week. “It’s really edited down. We were actually stood in front of them for almost two hours, but all you see is five or ten minutes. There were a lot more questions and debate.”

He revealed that the programme makers actually approached him. “We didn’t approach them. I did a screen-test in Manchester before the recording. They mentioned more than once Israeli innovation. It was flattering, good for me to hear.”

Romano, who lives near Swiss Cottage, is the father of two young girls – Alma, 4, and Livya, aged eight months – and said this idea came to him while he was walking through one of the centres of north London’s Jewish community.

“While I was walking Alma down Finchley Road, I realised the pram puts babies in the line of exhaust fumes,” he said. “My brother is a biochemist and helped me understand what they were breathing. Idling traffic creates hotspots of pollution.”

Asked about Suleyman, he said: “We’re already working together. He’s very hands-on. He sees it as a do-good project, as we do. We are thrilled with the partner we got. Touker is a warm-hearted man, and he thinks highly of Israeli innovation.”

Does it run in the Jewish genes, does he think? He laughs. “We seek and we talk, you know, one Jewish guy five opinions! The Israeli designer Ron Arad is a friend of my wife’s family and he helped me. We had so many hours debating!”

Some interesting facts

Thursday, 26th July 2018

The ordinary bat that flies around at night, a remarkable nimble creature in the air, cannot take off from a level place. If it is placed on the floor or flat ground, all it can do is shuffle about helplessly and, no doubt, painfully, until it reaches some slight elevation from which it can throw itself into the air. Then, at once, it takes off like a flash. 

A Bumblebee if dropped into an open tumbler will be there until it dies, unless it is taken out. It never sees the means of escape at the top, but persists in trying to find some way out through the sides near the bottom. It will seek a way where none exists, until it completely destroys itself.
