如何防止对儿童有害的压力

剑桥——世界各国的政客们往往在卸任之后,才会关注提升学校的教学质量,增加就业机会,减少犯罪率和延长人口寿命等问题。为了国家的长期利益,他们是否有政治勇气在任上就采取行动呢?或者还是为了急功近利而采取空洞而无资金投入的政策之后,然后说这是不可能完成的任务呢?

由于科技的发展,人们对大脑的开发,人类基因以及早期的经历对后天学习,行为和健康等方面的影响都有了新的科学认识。现在,这些都不是未知的领域了。我们有能力提高所有儿童的生活质量,给他们一个美好的未来。目前需要的就是政治家的眼光和领导力了。

经过多年的研究,科学家发现,人类在0到5岁期间的早期教育对日后谋生能力,社会责任感和心理生理的健康起着十分重要的作用。反之,如果在儿童时期,孩子遭受过分的贫穷,虐待和漠视以及暴力等,将会给他的一生都会有负面的压力。

    Angela Merkel’s Endgame?

    The collapse of coalition negotiations has left German Chancellor Angela Merkel facing a stark choice between forming a minority government or calling for a new election. But would a minority government necessarily be as bad as Germans have traditionally thought?

    Preparing for the Trump Trade Wars

    In the first 11 months of his presidency, Donald Trump has failed to back up his words – or tweets – with action on a variety of fronts. But the rest of the world's governments, and particularly those in Asia and Europe, would be mistaken to assume that he won't follow through on his promised "America First" trade agenda.

    The Platform Economy

    While developed countries in Europe, North America, and Asia are rapidly aging, emerging economies are predominantly youthful. Nigerian, Indonesian, and Vietnamese young people will shape global work trends at an increasingly rapid pace, bringing to bear their experience in dynamic informal markets on a tech-enabled gig economy.

    Profiles in Discouragement

    One day, the United States will turn the page on Donald Trump. But, as Americans prepare to observe their Thanksgiving holiday, they should reflect that their country's culture and global standing will never recover fully from the wounds that his presidency is inflicting on them.

    How Women Shape Coups

    In Zimbabwe, as in all coups, much behind-the-scenes plotting continues to take place in the aftermath of the military's overthrow of President Robert Mugabe. But who the eventual winners and losers are may depend, among other things, on the gender of the plotters.

    The Abnormality of Oil

    At the 2017 Abu Dhabi Petroleum Exhibition and Conference, the consensus among industry executives was that oil prices will still be around $60 per barrel in November 2018. But there is evidence to suggest that the uptick in global growth and developments in Saudi Arabia will push the price as high as $80 in the meantime.

    The Saudi Prince’s Dangerous War Games

    Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is working hard to consolidate power and establish his country as the Middle East’s only hegemon. But his efforts – which include an attempt to trigger a war between Israel and Hezbollah in Lebanon – increasingly look like the work of an immature gambler.
