Moshe Yanai, an Israeli billionaire, has donated more than $10 million to the Technion -- Israel Institute of Technology for awards to faculty members whom students consider to be nice, Israel National News reported. The awards will be given out for the next 20 years. Yanai released a statement on why he designated this use for the gift. "The Technion gave me an entry ticket to the world of computers and I owe it much of my success,” he said. “However, I remember the period of studies as difficult and demanding. I agree that the Technion must not compromise on anything less than excellence, but I am certain that much can be demanded of the student without this detracting from a pleasant study atmosphere."
