2010年前,这些国家预期寿命延长、传染病负担降低,婴儿及孕产妇死亡率改善。但今天,诸多地区冲突造成的创伤和痛苦已经加剧了这些国家医疗卫生系统所受的破坏。

    The Man Who Didn’t Save the World

    A Saudi prince has been revealed to be the buyer of Leonardo da Vinci's "Salvator Mundi," for which he spent $450.3 million.

    Two Myths About Automation

    While many people believe that technological progress and job destruction are accelerating dramatically, there is no evidence of either trend.
