According to the Palestinian Ministry of Health, at least 41 people have been killed during clashes on Monday along the border fence of Israel and Gaza.

This is an exceeding amount of facilities in one day since protest demonstrations began more than six weeks ago.

Demonstrations presumed as the Trump Administration moves the US embassy in Israel to Jerusalem. This decision breaks decades of American policy in a move that officials say will create greater stability.

“In the long run, we’re convinced that this decision creates an opportunity and a platform to proceed with a peace process on the basis of realities rather than fantasies,” said David Friedman, the US Ambassador to Israel.

Philly.com- When voters enter the booth Tuesday in Philadelphia, they’ll be asked: Should Philadelphia mandate all city workers receive sexual-harassment training?

Considering the seismic #MeToo movement’s effects in every corner of the working world, that might seem to be a no-brainer. But what would that training actually look like? And would it prevent sexual harassment?

At this point, no one knows.

Experts in sexual-harassment training say it’s effective at preventing sexual harassment and empowering employees to report only if designed properly. Some research shows that it can even have the opposite effect: In the worst cases, these training programs can be detrimental to reporting environments and even empower people doing the harassing.

In a bit of a Catch-22, voters won’t know whether they will be paying for the effective or ineffective variety: The city’s training program won’t be designed “until we get the official green light from voters,” said Councilwoman Blondell Reynolds Brown, who sponsored legislation authorizing the ballot question.
