Over the weekend, the Globe and Mail and the maritime newspaper the Chronicle Herald both produced great coverage of topics that go beyond the conflict.
In a travel piece published on its website, Globe and Mail contributor Alyssa Schwartz explored new life in ancient Jerusalem. As Schwartz put it:
A century after it opened, the city’s traditional market is bursting with after-hours bars and restaurants.”
Schwartz reported on the transformation of Jerusalem’s once-staid nightlife in recent years.
In the Chronicle Herald, John McPhee reported on how Dalhousie University is working with Israeli researchers to study brain injuries and disease.
According to McPhee:
Researchers in Halifax and Israel are putting their heads together to study brain injury and disease. The recently announced Canada-Israel Trans-Atlantic Collaboration for Brain Studies will see the Brain Repair Centre at Dalhousie University team up with Ben Gurion University in the desert city of Beer-Sheva in southern Israel.”
