This graphic posted on the Israeli Defense Forces website, dated July 20, 2014, shows an artist's attempt to support Israeli government claims that Hamas is hiding behind their civilian population. Beyond the boom of Israeli airstrikes and the stream of rockets fired from Gaza, Israel and Hamas are also battling to control the message emanating from this latest Israeli-Palestinian conflagration.

In this July 17, 2014 photo, Carolyn Allen, left, recounts how she fell in the bathtub and was helped by roommate Marcia Rosenfeld, right, who owns the Brooklyn, New York apartment where Allen lives. The two women are roommates thanks to a home-sharing program run by a New York-based nonprofit agency. Rosenfeld's two-bedroom apartment is too big for her, and even with a senior citizen's rent break, at over $1,000 a month, it was too expensive, so she is happy to have Allen help share living expenses. Allen, a 69 year-old widow who has suffered two strokes and doesn't want to live alone, and Rosenfeld agree home-sharing meets their individual needs. The pair have roomed together for three years.
