    For a century, the executives of Coca-Cola Co. have done everything possible to put their famed cola "within arm's reach of desire," to the point that one chief executive frequently pondered an extra tap at the kitchen sink—with Coke flowing from it. The company's plan to team up with the maker of the Keurig single-serve coffee brewers to develop a do-it-yourself countertop Coke machine comes pretty close. The new cold drink machine won't look anything like SodaStream, the leading home soda maker, says Coke's new partner, Green Mountain Coffee Roasters Inc. It will have a similar design to Green Mountain's...

    It keeps getting easier to ditch the soda can. When Coca-Cola said this week that it would let people make its drinks at home using a beverage machine, it became the latest company to take advantage of a growing trend: People turning to flavored drops or at-home carbonation machines that do away with the need to haul home bulky cans and bottles from the supermarket. […] Options that do away with cans and bottles are faring far better. Revenue for the Americas region at SodaStream, which makes at-home carbonation machines, surged 88 percent in 2012 from the previous year, the...

    A delegation of 14 leaders from the Presbyterian clergy, a church that in the past supported boycotting Israeli products manufactured in Judea and Samaria (Shomron), arrived last week to visit Israel. The visit was organized by the America-Israel Friendship League (AIFL); the delegates’ goal was to discover Israel personally and to better understand the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Representatives from the Presbyterian Church, which has an estimated six million followers, visited the Soda Stream factory, which is located in Maaleh Adumim, east of Jerusalem. They spoke to representatives from the management and several employees. While some United States-based religious groups, such as...

    Oxfam, the global charity that describes itself as "determined to change that world by mobilizing the power of people against poverty," has decided it prefers Palestinians to be poor, hungry and unemployed. This all involves a Hollywood actress, a Super Bowl ad, an at-home soda maker and some confused liberals who appear to prefer their poor people stay poor. Scarlett Johansson has been an Oxfam global ambassador, helping to raise money and the profile of the charity's work around the world, but after ScarJo, as her fans call her, opted to appear in a Super Bowl ad for SodaStream, things...

    SARAH Palin's life reads like an Oscar-worthy script: moose-hunting former beauty queen-cum-hockey mum who could be a heartbeat away from scoring the US presidency. But Hollywood is having none of it. Politics and movies have always mixed - from Joe Kennedy and silent-films siren Gloria Swanson to son John F. Kennedy and bombshell Marilyn Monroe, to the McCarthyism that swept through back lots to blackball artists over real or imagined Communist sympathies. Hollywood is liberal and right now there is no love for the conservative Alaskan Governor who made history last month by becoming the first woman on the Republican...

    My male friends all seem to have the same assessment of the Republican nominee for the vice presidency of the United States: She's pretty hot. I guess that depends on what you mean by hot. If GOP leaders had intended to pick on the basis of pulchritude, I would have suggested perhaps a Scarlett Johansson lookalike. Instead they chose a Tina Fey clone. But apparently much of America is willing to vote for her based on her looks. The GOP better hope so. She sure isn't going to win based on her brains. We got a hint of that during...

Specifically, Scarlett Johansson drew Waters' ire for filming some ads for the Israeli beverage maker SodaStream and classic rocker Neil Young, who ignored Waters' directive to not book concerts in Israel. Waters has chugged the kool aid of the 'Boycott, Sanctions and Divestment', (BDS) movement, which is in reality a political movement whose underlying mission is to portray Palestinians as victims of...
