Happening in the US: As the fallout from the Cambridge Analytica scandal continues to hammer Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg has now publicly addressed the issue. He said that Facebook had a “responsibility” to protect user data and that they would investigate apps that collect user data, stopping short of a full-fledged apology. (NYT)

Happening in NYC: Official announced that New York City has broken tourism records for the 8th year in a row, with 62.8 million tourists taking to the city in 2017, with record highs in both domestic and international tourists, despite restrictions by the federal government that make it more difficult to travel to the US.

Happening on Campus: Head on over to Buell Hall for a screening of Tinghir-Jerusalem, followed by a talk with the director Kamal Hachkar. The film deals with the history of the Moroccan town he was born in, which once had a thriving Jewish population, and the close cooperation between the two groups that resided there.

Overheard: “Are we making a snowman or a penis?”
