6:28 am
a lake where the park sports facilities and play grounds, as well as an amphitheatre. bringing more quality of life to bear shaver. the park itself is, is, is just the catalyst. it's just the egypt for change. the development of the housing is creating ah, thousands of jobs for blue collar workers from all over that come from the barrel and villages in the our villages and the working together in order to create opportunities. real estate developers overcome that architects. a 3 bedroom apartment in the desert city of bear shaver currently costs the same as a one bedroom apartment in tel aviv polly group. hi lou, a 30 year old web designer is benefiting from this as well. the new lake is her favorite spot in the city. it's where she refusals,

together. the lord of center was created to act as an intermediary, megan turner is an employment agent and helps to mediate between business training institutions and job seekers. well, here that we are gone mad happens in the tech world, things are changing by the minute even. and so it's our job because we have built this relationship with the technical colleges to go in and to tell them listen, i think it's a really good idea for you to update your syllabus. this is what we're hearing from the field, the people who are wanting to hire these young adults are saying we can't hire them without the set of skills. so we're helping everyone get on the same page who pile owens turner, our desert dwellers through and through narrow, on the other hand, seized the great potential of the desert and helps others to realize their dreams there. but as long as he can still afford it, he prefers to live in a city like tel aviv on traffic free days,

6:34 am
prepare shiver. and when things get complicated, when we depend on the cities for technicians, remote turnips, dishwasher, or air conditioning, for example, wants to return a call of impulsion missive. look here, looks like a postcard to an alternative life in the desert. but for the masses of people who are to be settled in israel's southernmost region, it will no doubt remain to exotic. ah, large settlement projects are being planned around the neg, if capitol of bathsheba. this time we arrive at night and find another surprise. the allegedly boring desert city has quite a lively night life, especially here in the university district. and in the old town. ah, and there is something to celebrate. when we meet web designer goopy lou again,
6:35 am
she proudly tells us about her promotion. i am in this is the reason why i am going to say i'm going to hand is worth hard to read. i to savvy instead of the day, but i'm bringing a what i studied with the transformation of the city appears to be taking place through developments like who pi lowe's. she is a pioneer. others must follow if israel's vision of the future in the desert is to come true. suddenly the waitress joins the conversation as well. the 20 year old as eve jury works in this ball to finance her tourism degree. she says she came to the fall south from her hometown in the north. the only thing that we don't have here is the 25th of that perfect geared that prices are better than the vibe here. a
6:36 am
good. i love the city a real with all the thing about getting it as anyone. they're all going to feel the same answer because they'll never have, like, i don't, i was they just, what i did went by the people from the next table also wants to have their say, our camera seems to attract a lot of attention here. or you're here uh huh. 6 that's your with tom emotions. tom, how, mary, all geology students like so many. they are originally from other cities and are only studying in bathsheba because the cost of living is cheaper. but where do they see their future? i don't know how it will be right to roger, so it's a pleasure to tripler in the house,
6:37 am
but it has another bright combo server to the foe. we're lucky. you can find almost nothing mostly military areas. so there are maybe for us as a journalist instead maybe we can buy a minor or something. they are hoping for a jobs miracle. the reality though is green, even though there shaver is growing little is happening around it. the next morning we find out why, from one of the desert regions, most knowledgeable experts at ben gory on university in bear shaver, the odin ro, faith studies urban development. in the neg, f. desert. even finding a job in the negative is still difficult. he explains, the desert is still not sufficiently connected. use the classical papers because it's true. you can get from here to the center in one hour. but from here to all
6:38 am
the settlements around it, it's much more, more difficult. so the interconnectivity within the metropolitan area hasn't to be improved significantly. and not only by buses, you have to have the real world railroad working much, much better. other forms of infrastructure such as water and electricity are easier to tackle. he says, not far from basheba. one of the world's largest concentrated solar power plants cleans like a gigantic lighthouse of crucial importance for the development of the desert are of course it's traditional inhabitants. more and more bedouins are studying at the university that for me because is drawing, it's already about a quarter of a 1000000 and they will probably double in the next 2 generations because of a young population. most of it is under 20 years old and, and they're probably going to be a major part of population and they and because they're growing, there are a large part of the economy. when we meet ayesha job or
6:39 am
a game in the bed to in capitol of her heart, she is full of confidence. an investor has given her $50000.00 in start of money. today, she wants to show us how her app for cashless refueling will work. the apps direct drivers to the nearest gas station and processes. the payment in israel. customers usually pay directly at the pump with a credit card and have to enter all kinds of details such as their personal id number. the whole process is particularly difficult for many between women says jabber very cleverly, rather peculiar boy some retired. but if you do it here on the app, you don't need all that good for the gas station connects to your phone. you just have to quickly validate it and you're ready to start pumping, but you don't have to do a lot of pushing buttons or even go inside to pay live occasionally. no. you pay
6:40 am
quickly with the app on your phone. and off you go to look after that, since jabbers app is not yet up and running, we still paid by credit card. this time that we suddenly realized that our receipt was missing. a group limb is it didn't take their corolla avella is obligation. you will get a cabala, so you didn't need the paper. now you convinced me a. she is already in the gucci ations with the major petrol station networks. she plans to launch her up at the end of the year. her dream of establishing herself as a high tech entrepreneur is almost a reality. as a bedroom, she is a member of a minority. as a high tech entrepreneur, jabber represents a key force in israel's new vision of the desert. the eyes of many are on the
6:41 am
south of the country. if growth is, is going to be is going to come here in the next 2025 years. the, the problem is, or that will be able to create quality development, which will keep the people here and, and her, and attract people to come here and actually make our lives better here. biotech, farmer. ya see ben, this convinced of this? his success story continues. israeli athletes took his desert cal him at the olympics in japan. he says proudly. and it is currently even being tested in clinics for the treatment of corona related illnesses. his next plan is for an american billionaire to test the calcium in space during his trip to the moon in order to reduce astronaut's inevitable muscle atrophy in weightlessness. like the grown tomato felt when you have the plant. after you have the live, after you have the fruit,
