Magic Mike Does Upstart Nation 1

Sound the shofar, sound the shofar, sound the shofar!
Sound, sound, sound the shofar till around
You make the list'ning shores rebound.
On the sprightly hautboy play
All the instruments of joy
That skillful numbers can employ,
To celebrate the glories of this day.
(With apps apologies to Henry Purcell)

"Mike Baird is set to become the first serving NSW premier to visit Israel when he leads a trade delegation there next week. The premier says innovation, cyber security and medical and financial technologies will be the focus of the week-long visit, which will include stops in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv and the West Bank. 'Israel is known as start-up upstart nation for good reason, and, as we prepare to launch our own innovation strategy later this year, there can be no better time to study the successful Israeli model for nurturing new ideas and encouraging innovation and entrepreneurship,' Baird said in a statement on Tuesday. Medical marijuana research will be another focus for the trade delegation which includes medicinal cannabis campaigner Lucy Haslam and NSW Police Commissioner Andrew Scipione. The premier will also meet with Palestinian leadership when he visits the West Bank." (Mike Baird set to become first serving New South Wales premier to visit Israel, AAP,
