The Week in Review

 

Israel and Gaza are seeing a resurgence of conflict, the highest since 2014; Former anti-apartheid activist Cyril Ramaphosa is voted in as President of South Africa by the National Assembly after Zuma’s resignation following scandals; The U.S. faced another tragic school shooting, this time in Florida (again) tolling 17 lives, mostly children, while political leaders and lawmakers backpedal (once again) with their “thoughts and prayers” into the arms of the gun lobbyists who pull their strings. It may take nothing short of their own children becoming victims before the hypocrisy is lifted; Meanwhile, the Winter Olympics enter their second week and metals are awarded. Here is this week’s review of the arts.
