The Week in News: July 28th - August 3rdby 👨‍💻 Graham Pierrepoint

While this week may not have been the most dramatic in terms of world news and events in comparison with others, it’s still played host to a number of notable moments – some of which you may have missed without ever realizing it! Here, as always, is our weekly digest and rundown of the most interesting stories of the week – and while there are many to pick from, this is just a quick slice of the action from the past seven days!

Emmerson Mnangagwa Elected in Zimbabwe
Amid protests over vote-rigging which led to the deaths of at least six people, Zimbabwe has reportedly ushered in its first new leader in Mnangagwa since Robert Mugabe was ousted from office. The new President of Zimbabwe defeated opposition in Nelson Chamisa by 50.8% to 44.3% - though the latter has insisted that he is in fact the winner of the election, despite the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission saying otherwise.

Apple Passes an Enormous Milestone
Whether you’re glued to your iPhone or simply haven’t bitten into Apple just yet, it’s hard to deny that the company’s valuation at $1 trillion is nothing short of impressive. Following humble beginnings and struggles which nearly pushed the brand to bankruptcy, the Apple story is one which is fascinating – and which seems to show no sign of slowing down any time soon.

Reboot After Reboot After Reboot
This seems to be the summer of TV and movie revivals – as not only are we just getting over the news that Rugrats and Buffy the Vampire Slayer are being offered the remake and relaunch treatment, news has emerged this week that US TV staples in Frasier and ALF are being sought for re-imaginings. Is nothing sacred? Maybe not – but the bigger question remains – will these reboots work?

Stonehenge Secrets Revealed
It’s been revealed through pioneering research this week that a fair portion of the builders of Stonehenge may in fact have been Welsh – and it’s all thanks to incredible new studies that have involved isolating an isotope crystallized by the process of cremation. As it transpires, cremated bone still contains crucial information that helps to identify its origins – which means that we may well be learning more about where our ancestors have come from, and have gone, in the years to follow.
