加沙的教育现状

加沙——今年本来是我上医学院的第一年。可我却被困在加沙,困在我父亲位于贾巴利亚难民营的房子里,没有选择也没有出路。去年高中毕业后,我决心成为一名医生。加沙急需骨科专家,但只有国外才能提供我所需要的培训。

当我被德国医学院录取的时候,我的父母都感到非常骄傲。我的哥哥已经在那里学习,我很高兴能跟哥哥一样。二月,德国政府批准了我的入境签证。我没有浪费时间,立即向以色列当局申请赴欧旅行的许可。但我被告知只有需要紧急医疗疏散的病人才能获准出境——而学生则不可以。

数百名像我一样的年轻人被国外学校录取后却困在加沙无法成行。对我们中的许多人来讲,这是继续接受教育的唯一机会。加沙是世界上人口最稠密的地区,同时也最贫困——150万人生活在大约41公里长、6-12公里宽的一小块土地上。当地医院缺乏进行许多重要治疗所需的设备,包括癌症病人的放射治疗和心脏手术设备。

  3. Murdoch's Last Stand?

    Rupert Murdoch’s sale of 21st Century Fox’s entertainment assets to Disney for $66 billion may mark the end of the media mogul’s career, which will long be remembered for its corrosive effect on democratic discourse on both sides of the Atlantic. 

    From enabling the rise of Donald Trump to hacking the telephone of a murdered British schoolgirl, Murdoch’s media empire has staked its success on stoking populist rage.

    The Dangerous Delusion of Price Stability

    Since the hyperinflation of the 1970s, which central banks were right to combat by whatever means necessary, maintaining positive but low inflation has become a monetary-policy obsession. But, because the world economy has changed dramatically since then, central bankers have started to miss the monetary-policy forest for the trees.

  5. Harvard’s Jeffrey Frankel Measures the GOP’s Tax Plan

    Jeffrey Frankel, a professor at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government and a former member of President Bill Clinton’s Council of Economic Advisers, outlines the five criteria he uses to judge the efficacy of tax reform efforts. And in his view, the US Republicans’ most recent offering fails miserably.

    CRISPR-Cas – a gene-editing technique that is far more precise and efficient than any that has come before it – is poised to change the world. But ensuring that those changes are positive – helping to fight tumors and mosquito-borne illnesses, for example – will require scientists to apply the utmost caution.
