Israel and the militant group Hamas are still fighting, and the death toll is rising. Palestinian officials say 565 have died since fighting  began July 8.

The overall Israeli death toll rose to 27, which includes soldiers and two civilians.

The international community is  stepping up its efforts to broker a cease-fire.

United Nations chief Ban Ki Moon and U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry landed in  Cairo on Monday to try to broker a deal.

Kerry said the United States would provide $47 million in humanitarian aid for Gaza.

Johns Hopkins to pay $190M over gyno who secretly recorded patients with pen camera

If you’re a woman, you will not read this without cringing. A gynecologist at Johns Hopkins Hospital used a tiny pen-like camera around his neck to secretly photograph and videotape women’s lady parts, and now the hospital is dishing out a fat chunk of change to settle claims with thousands of women. The $190 million settlement approved by a judge, while preliminary, is one of the largest on record in the U.S. involving sexual misconduct by a physician.
