Indoor lacrosse is serious business. It's played on a turf field that's just about the same size as a hockey rink, and there are the same amount of players playing per team as the ice sport, just subtract the skates and add sticks with netting. The pace of play is much different though. Hockey is sort of half transitional and half setting up with the puck on your opponents side. Indoor lacrosse is almost entirely stationary. Teams with possession can simply jog over to the other side and get into formation.

Khaled Abu Toameh had a journalistic feel to the way that he spoke – he did not try to solve the problem of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and admitted when he didn’t know the answer. In essence, he was a reporter on and off paper.
