SPOTLIGHT

1. HEALTH:

Can energy-efficient buildings make you sick?

The wheels of justice ground to a halt at the Alberta Court of Appeal in Calgary in 2001. Housed in an 87-year-old sandstone building -- the oldest surviving courthouse in the city -- several judges, attorneys and minions of law suffered fatigue, irritated lungs and watery eyes following a renovation to bring the historic structure up to modern efficiency standards.

2. TRANSPORTATION:

Israel aims to wean a majority of its vehicles off oil by 2025

TEL AVIV, Israel -- Personal "mobility pods," electric scooters, cars that run on air and even drones are all part of the strategy here to move 60 percent of Israel's transportation sector off oil by 2025. With a population of 8 million, Israel is far from the largest oil user in the world. It's also much less automobile-dependent per capita than the United States and most European countries. But despite its relatively small footprint, the self-styled "innovation nation" has grand plans to drive oil out of the global transportation sector, cutting greenhouse gas emissions in the process.
