International Mamanet-began in Israel as a sport for moms, now plans Seminar in Vienna.
What is Mamanet?
The Israeli Mamanet (Newcombe) league is the largest social – sports project specifically for moms. The Mamanet League was established in 2005 and has since spread to thousands of players all across the country. Mamanet is the only sports league for mothers of its kind in Israel. Mamanet allows moms to relive their younger days as athletes, or experience being part of a sports league for the first time. The league is associated with their children’s elementary, junior high and high schools, so that the entire project is community based.
Newcombe in a basketball court is where one plays Mamanet. As such it is a team competitive ball game based on the laws of volleyball and takes place on a plot identical to that of Volleyball (9×9 m) with a fundamental difference – in newcombe the ball is delivered and caught instead of hitting it – this allows women of all ages and all fitness fit into the game.

What does this blue sign mean? It means that if you park illegally your infraction is on camera and you will not see a summons but it will be on record.
Enforcement cameras were placed at central locations in the city and will document severe, dangerous parking violations, as part of the process to improve the issue of parking in the city and streamline the finding of parking spots.
Starting this week, the Jerusalem Municipality will operate advanced enforcements systems based upon video surveillance, with the goal of preventing severe parking violations in the city’s main transportation arteries. These are offenses that cause significant danger to human lives, disrupt traffic, and endanger those on the road.
The cameras will document severe parking violations, such as blocking of routes, parking on sidewalks or crosswalks, in handicapped spots or bus stops, double parking, and stopping in forbidden zones. Additionally, special emphasis will be placed on ensuring parking availability to the disabled and reducing vehicle stoppages adjacent to light rail stops, which endangers pedestrians. The goal of the project, which is being carried out by the “Safer Place” company, is to eliminate severe instances of parking violations, which produce injuries, traffic jams and heavy traffic, and endanger pedestrians and drivers. This is part of the process of introducing new technologies to improve parking across the city, with the goal of allowing residents and visitors to find places efficiently and easily.
In the first stage, a permanent camera will be fixed on Pierre Koenig Street, next to Hadar Mall, and a patrol vehicle will be operated overtly by parking attendants across the city. In proximity to fixed cameras, appropriate signage will be displayed alerting to the area of increased enforcement. In the project’s first weeks—from May 8-22, 2016—drivers that perform violations received warnings. After May 22, 2016, tickets are given for parking violations. The traffic violations will be photographed, and the tickets will be sent to residents’ homes. Under this framework, two pilot programs will begin shortly.
One, is a pilot using the “ParKam” application, for locating and routing people to open parking spots using the cameras deployed in the streets in real-time. The pilot will be carried out on the following streets: Shammai, Hillel, Ben Sira, Meir Shacham, and Rabbi Akiva. You will be able to use the application to locate the nearest parking spots to the driver’s destination, to navigate to them in real-time, and to receive alerts along the drive regarding the parking situation. In the event the parking place is taken—the application will navigate the user to the next closest parking spot to their destination, and will help them navigate by foot back to the car. The second pilot for finding parking will take place using sensors and an application in the Emek Refaim area. Upon completion of the open call (during the month of May), the pilot will take place in the Emek Refaim area.
