Israel holds its third election this year, the democratic primaries speed up with super tuesday, and a second case of Coronavirus pops up outside of the city.
Happening in the World: In Israel’s third election this year, Netanyahu took the lead against challenger Benny Gantz, but was unable to pull off a parliamentary majority. Netanyahu is also facing felony corruption charges and a trial in two weeks, calling into question legally whether or not president Rivlin can invite him to form a government as there is no Supreme Court precedent.

Joshcore Album of the Week: In honor of a recent single put out by Car Seat Headrest, check out the album “How To Leave Town.” This album is a merge of beach boy influenced rock and roll, awkward lo-fi, and angsty queer teen electronic music. High School me became obsessed with this band when I learned the front-man Will Toledo grew up a couple miles from where I did and this album along with others marks a similar hunger to get the hell out of Virginia. Check it out for an emotional guide on how to leave where you grew up for good.
