向结核病开火

索尔纳,瑞典—结核病是全世界最致命的疾病。光是在2013年,就有150万人死于结核病,其中五分之一是低收入国家成年人。尽管每年患结核病的估计人数在下降,但降幅十分缓慢。而由于具有多重抗药性的结核病的普遍化,患病人数下降的趋势可能发生逆转。

尽管如此,如今世界仍有一丝希望根除结核病。抓住这一机会需要迅速研发和普及高效诊断工具、新的药物治疗和创新性疫苗,并辅之以确保卫生系统能够及时对症下药的措施。这绝不是简单的任务。

好消息是国际社会似乎热切地想行动起来。世界卫生组织的2015年后 全球结核病战略(2014年5月在世界卫生大会上通过)的目标是在2035年根除结核病。9月,联合国的193个成员国将正式开始实施可持续发展目标,在2030年根除结核病也是目标之一。

    Populist Plutocracy and the Future of America

    • In the first year of his presidency, Donald Trump has consistently sold out the blue-collar, socially conservative whites who brought him to power, while pursuing policies to enrich his fellow plutocrats. 

    • Sooner or later, Trump's core supporters will wake up to this fact, so it is worth asking how far he might go to keep them on his side.

    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. Had he given the money to the poor, as the subject of the painting instructed another rich man, he could have restored eyesight to nine million people, or enabled 13 million families to grow 50% more food.

    Two Myths About Automation

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