It was an event that could set a precedent in a world longing for a return to normal - a music concert attended by scores of Israelis vaccinated against COVID-19. The open-air concert in Tel Aviv on Wednesday was one of the first in a programme to restart cultural events by restricting attendance to people who have been vaccinated or those with immunity after contracting the disease. Attendees were required to show a "Green Pass", a government-validated certificate showing they had received both doses of the vaccine more than a week prior to the event or that they had recovered from COVID-19 and were presumed immune.
Tiger Woods was involved in a terrible single-car crash on Tuesday morning. The sports world quickly sent their prayers.

Israel hopes to prevent personal tension between Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and U.S. President Joe Biden over their differences on the Iranian nuclear question by delegating talks on the topic to their senior staff, an Israeli official said. Netanyahu's foreign-policy fortunes have waned since Biden succeeded Republican president Donald Trump, who withdrew the United States from world powers' 2015 Iranian nuclear deal, deeming it too advantageous for Tehran - a view Israel shared. Biden, a Democrat, wants to rejoin the deal.

Andrew Cuomo, the governor of New York, has been accused of forcibly kissing a former aide in allegations that could hurt his chances of a presidential run in 2024. Lindsey Boylan, who was a special adviser to the governor until she resigned in 2018, said Mr Cuomo “abused his power as governor to sexually harass me, just as he had done with so many other women.” Writing in a post on the website Medium, Ms Boylan, 36, says she stepped down from her position after Mr Cuomo stepped in front of her path and kissed her on the lips after a meeting at his office in New York City. She had also worked as a deputy secretary for economic development. Mr Cuomo, who has recently faced criticism for covering up the extent of deaths in New York’s care homes, is under growing pressure. Elise Stefanik, Republican representative for New York's 21st congressional district, called for Mr Cuomo to immediately resign, adding that “any elected official who does not immediately call for his resignation is complicit in allowing a sexual predator to continue leading the great state of New York.” Alessandra Biaggi, Democratic state senator for The Bronx, also tweeted about Ms Boylan’s accusations: “I have no doubt that this is true," she wrote. “I’ve witnessed similar behavior, and it’s unacceptable." In the post, Ms Boylan writes that Mr Cuomo, 63, had told staff she reminded him of his former girlfriend, only “better looking.” She posted screenshots purportedly of emails from the Director of the Governor’s offices telling her to ‘look up’ Mr Cuomo’s former girlfriend.
