我的乳房会炸毁飞机吗?

牛津市——

正当美国的“国土安全部的行为”已经荒诞至极的时候,美国运输安全局又在机场推出了一个代价昂贵的斯库拉和卡律布狄斯(希腊神话中的两个恶毒海妖——译者注)般恶毒的选择:要么接受危险的辐射量,把你裸体的高清图像置于安检人员的视线中,要么你担心辐射对健康造成的危害,拒绝接受新的X线全身扫描仪(没多久就被称为“色情扫描仪“)。

但是如果你拒绝接受这种扫描仪的检查,那么像我上周经历的那样,运输安全局的工作人员就会对你进行极度侵犯隐私的“拍身”检查。“我将要触摸你的私密部位,”当我在纽约肯尼迪机场乘坐航班时,一位非常不安的女性工作人员对我说道。毫无疑问,后来这名工作人员对我的生殖器和乳房进行了侵犯性的触摸。这已经是对美国航空旅客实行的标准政策了。

    The Next Battle in China’s War on Corruption

    • Chinese President Xi Jinping knows well the threat that corruption poses to the authority of the Communist Party of China and the state it controls.

    Putting Europe’s Long-Term Unemployed Back to Work

    Across the European Union, millions of people who are willing and able to work have been unemployed for a year or longer, at great cost to social cohesion and political stability. If the EU is serious about stopping the rise of populism, it will need to do more to ensure that labor markets are working for everyone.

    A Belt and Road for the Americas?

    In a time of global uncertainty, a vision of “made in the Americas” prosperity provides a unifying agenda for the continent. If implemented, the US could reassert its historical leadership among a group of countries that share its fundamental values, as well as an interest in inclusive economic growth and rising living standards.

    How Best to Promote Research and Development

    Clearly, there is something appealing about a start-up-based innovation strategy: it feels democratic, accessible, and so California. But it is definitely not the only way to boost research and development, or even the main way, and it is certainly not the way most major innovations in the US came about during the twentieth century.

    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.
