Israeli PM Netanyahu Seeks Record 5th Term: World in 60 Seconds

Can Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu win a record fifth term?

It looks pretty likely especially because his opponent Gantz has done a pretty bad job over the last few weeks. Lots of internal flubs and mishandling and he's way ahead in the polls at this point. But if Netanyahu ends up getting indicted, if those indictments come down, decent chance he's going to have to resign in the near term.

Will the EU approve another Brexit delay?

Almost certainly they will. Question is how long that delay will be and how flexible that delay will be? Ultimately, they're pushing the Brits hard to pretend that they won't because they want a faster deal. But given that's not going to happen they ultimately don't want to see a crash out with no deal.

Is Iran's IRGC really a terrorist organization?

Well, I mean, sure in the sense that they fund and support terrorist organizations that attack civilians across the Middle East, and occasionally more broadly, but they're already deeply sanctioned by the United States which means that designating them terrorist organization doesn't have an awful lot of impact on the relations with the United States, or more broadly, the Iranians will complain they won't do anything.

Coffee is one of the most popular drinks in the world, but that means it creates a lot of waste in the form of cups and used coffee grinds. Every year, we drink out of 600 billion single-use plastic and paper cups, most of which end up in a landfill or our environment. Could coffee also contribute to a more sustainable future? A German company is now recovering leftover coffee grounds from bars, restaurants and hotels, and it's recycling them into reusable coffee cups. In other words, they're creating cups of coffee made from coffee.

What technology was used to assist Eliud Kipchoge's historic sub two-hour marathon time?

A lot. If you watched the video of him, you saw that he was within a pace group, a whole bunch of runners in front of him cutting the wind. Some runners behind him, actually improving his wind resistance by having people behind him. There was a green laser showing him exactly what time he had to run. He had really high-tech gels that he took, these Maurten gels. I actually like those a lot, too. But the main thing were the shoes. These are the early prototypes of the shoes or the first version. He's now in the third version. But what's most important is there is a carbon fiber plate. You cannot bend this thing. So, Nike introduced these shoes, I don't know, two years ago. Now, there's a new generation. It's very controversial.

Will the Catalonia question be a big issue in the Spanish election coming up in November?

You bet it will. Passions have been further inflamed now, and the question that has been difficult from the very beginning, by the very heavy prison sentences that was given to those that are accused of sedition, that is organizing the independence referendum. So, passions are heating up. It will be a difficult issue for the entire Spanish political system to handle for years to come.

You'd think, being the relatively hopeful person that you are, that the nauseating anguish of Brexit would be more or less over now that UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson has finally reached a deal with Brussels on how to extricate the UK from the European Union.
