High seas op-ed image
Two-thirds of the planet is covered by water and much of that space is ungoverned. Human rights, labor and environmental crimes occur often and with impunity because the oceans are vast. What laws exist are difficult to enforce. Arguably the most important factor, though, is that the global public is woefully unaware of what happens offshore.
Forced labor on the high seas image
In this episode of Second Opinion, we speak with veteran investigative reporter Ian Urbina about his work uncovering exploitation in the maritime industry. Urbina is the director of the nonprofit news organization the Outlaw Ocean Project.
Long haul COVID-19 op-ed image
COVID-19 long-haulers suffer from distressing or debilitating problems months after supposedly recovering from the disease. Understanding the immune system’s response to COVID-19 may even help us understand, diagnose and treat other complex chronic immune-related conditions.
Patient to patient advocate image
“What I’ve learned is that I have the power to save my own life, and I actually have the power to help people save theirs,” says Chimére Smith of her 12-month battle against COVID-19. Smith is one of tens of thousands of so-called “long-haul” patients in this country, who continue to experience symptoms months after contracting the coronavirus.
Biology and sociology image
The Nepali doctor Rishav Koirala is, by his own admission, an unusual Nepali. He’s a fan of Jim Morrison and the Doors, loves European philosophy and practices psychiatry in a country where medical schools offer little or no mental health training. What makes him especially unusual is that as the world embraces the idea that mental illnesses should be seen as brain disorders, Koirala is pushing back.
