Sede Boqer in the news

One of Israel's major newspapers sent a reporter to interview a few students and faculty in the institute. The article appeared in a supplement called the Anglo File, which is usually devoted to articles about the english speaking jewish minority in Israel. I know this because i get newspapers on the weekend and spend the rest of the wekk obsessively reading and rereading every single article, no matter how boring. Anyway, the article was supposed to include another interview with Jaime (colombian as well), but for some reason they didnt include it, and he was pretty upset about it. They made it seem like an article introducing the institute to the public, but i feel they were being politically correct and praising rather than giving a balanced outlook. But its okay, its good to see us in the news :)
