EAPC & Azadi Tower
Eilat Ashkelon Pipeline Co. Ltd. (EAPC) Logo & The Azadi Tower in Tehran
Israel owes Iran $100m compensation for oil pipeline losses, rule Swiss arbitrators.
Preliminary ruling relates to Tehran’s losses from a joint oil-pipeline venture after the 1979 Revolution. It comes after two decades of arbitration, would pay the value of a 50% stake in the Iran Eilat Ashkelon Pipeline Company.
Eilat Ashkelon Pipeline Co. Ltd. (EAPC) was formed in 1968 when the two countries were friends as a joint-venture company that would bring Iranian oil from the Persian Gulf to Israel’s Red Sea port of Eilat and ship it to terminals in Ashkelon — avoiding the Suez Canal. From there the oil would be sold and shipped to Europe.

Goya & Freud's despair
The Sleep of Reason Produces Monsters is an etching by the Spanish painter and printmaker Francisco Goya. Goya imagines himself asleep amidst his drawing tools, his reason dulled by slumber and bedevilled by creatures that prowl in the dark.
The image on the right is an old photograph of the artist Lucian Freud. In the picture, Freud sits on a bed, holding his right hand to his forehead in a gesture of weariness or despair.
MoMA New York is currently hosting a new exhibition entitled Jasper Johns: Regrets, which displays works by the American artist inspired by this photograph.
