An Inside Look at Albert Einstein's Personal Life
Take a look beyond his scientific accomplishments and into matters of a more complicated nature: his heart.

......Of his son Eduard, Einstein wrote how much he enjoyed receiving his poetry and pictures and added: "The more refined of my sons, the one I considered really of my own nature, was seized by an incurable mental illness." As for his second marriage, Einstein apparently discussed his affairs openly with Elsa and also kept her apprised of his travels and thoughts.

India's ascendancy: leadership demands integrity
The Lancet Published:May 06, 2023DOI:https://doi.org/10.1016/S0140-6736(23)00904-2
PlumX Metrics

2023 is an important year for India. The UN estimates that the country has now surpassed China as the world's most populous nation. It holds the G20 presidency, taking over from Indonesia, and its New Delhi Leader's Summit in September will be the first to be hosted in south Asia. What will these developments mean for its role in the international system? India says that it wants to amplify the voice of the Global South, and its G20 goals reflect this ambition. But the nationalist agenda of Narendra Modi's government, its resistance to multilateralism, and a raft of pressing domestic concerns threaten the chances of making these aims a reality.
India has undoubted strengths. Demography is not destiny, but it is powerful. While China's population is declining, India's is projected to continue increasing. Its economy is the fifth largest in the world and growing. The number of young people entering the workforce is increasing, presenting a potential demographic dividend. Realising the benefits, particularly the health returns, will demand investments in health, education, and skilling to address stark regional disparities in wealth, education, reproductive health, and women's empowerment.
India's G20 priorities are based around inclusive and resilient growth. They include climate finance; ensuring global food security; accelerated progress on Sustainable Development Goals; access to vaccines, therapeutics, and diagnostics; democratising global financial governance; building global health resilience; and increasing access to digital health innovations. India is also pressing for debt relief for low-income and middle-income countries (LMICs). The steep global rise in the proportion of public spending dedicated to repayment of debt is bound to hamper investment in much-needed health and social programmes. Restructuring international debt conditions with the interests of LMICs in mind is vital for wellbeing.
India has already shown global leadership in access to medicines. Alongside South Africa, it was one of the first nations to propose intellectual property waivers during the COVID-19 pandemic. Its immense generics manufacturing industry provides affordable medicines to many parts of the world, including about two-thirds of antiretroviral drugs for HIV, although a series of fatalities resulting from contaminated medicines raise questions over regulatory oversight. Its new digital health programme, the Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission, could serve as a model for other countries and the government intends to make its vaccine distribution platform Co-Win an open-source digital public good for international use. Such action demonstrates how India could enhance South–South cooperation.
However, there is danger that India's domestic potential and its international aspirations will amount to little more than platitudes, given the direction that Modi is taking the country. India's climate policies are a contradiction. It is seeking more than US$100 billion annually to support renewable energy transition in LMICs. Huge investments in green hydrogen and solar energy could reduce its dependence on fossil fuels, which account for more than 80% of India's energy needs. India has shown some enthusiasm for building greenhouse gas infrastructure, but softening of the language on coal at COP26 invites scepticism. Despite low health sector and per capita emissions, India remains the world's third largest CO2 emitter. India is already feeling the consequences of failing to act. Last year, devastating heatwaves wreaked havoc, and India recorded its hottest March on record. Articulating a clear pathway towards net zero, and having the data to support it, are imperative.
Modi's government have shown themselves to be wholly untrustworthy on COVID-19 health data. Official government figures place deaths at more than 530 000, while WHO excess death estimates for 2020 and 2021 are near 4·7 million. The fact that the Indian Government attempted to delay the publication of such figures while also censoring criticism during the pandemic seriously undermines its integrity. Press freedom in India has diminished since Modi's ascent to power in 2014. Of the 180 countries in the Reporters Without Borders press freedom index, India is ranked 150th, just five places above Russia. Civil society is increasingly constrained and violent Hindu nationalism is suppressing non-Hindu voices. Without a space for debate, activism and accountability are impossible, and India's place as the world's largest democracy is threatened.
Ultimately, the leadership of any country on the global stage depends upon its legitimacy. Are people able to believe in it? The Modi government has failed to show a commitment to transparency, integrity, and equity. As a result, India risks squandering its formidable opportunities.

@oristarA,

Does silicon-based life exist?

看看,你连科学的基本常识都没有,只会简单推理扯皮。这是抖音,所以我简洁表达了一下,让你觉得有空子可钻。也罢了,我具体举两三例,让你明白为什么硅基生命是不可能的。科学的假说跟主观臆测的根本差异在于前者必须通读相关科学文献之后在原有证据基础上提出新的理论框架,而不能是文学形式的灵光一闪异想天开。为什么硅基生命不可能?(1)其能量提取与释放方式决定了其不可能性。碳基生命比如说人类吸入氧气后氧跟血糖结合使其分解,释放能量,生成二氧化碳与水,二氧化碳是气体,可以立即呼出,在外部环境被植物当成养料,然后植物通过光合作用产生氧气,这样人-植物之间构成了彼此依赖的良性的生态环境,所以作为碳基生命的人,在地球这个大环境里可以得到良好的发展。但如果是硅基生命,氧与硅的化合物结合释放能量时产生的是二氧化硅(沙子的主要成份就是二氧化硅),而二氧化硅是固体,呼不出去,就会郁积在体内导致中毒死亡(如果有所谓的硅基生命体存在的话),更不可能跟外界形成良性的生态循环,从而否定了硅基生命存在的可能性。(二)硅基手性化合物非常贫乏,而碳基手性化合物异常丰富,使得前者无法形成生命发生过程。生命的发生需要有丰富的手性化合物的存在才有可能。所谓手性化合物就是说其结构象手一样,比如说人的左右手,结构相似,所以可以紧紧地握手形成一个新的稳定的结构,化合物也是如此。硅基物质能形成的手性化合物太少,使得复杂的生命过程无法发生。(三)天文观察发现,二氧化硅与硅盐在宇宙中普遍存在,但无法观察到硅烷或硅酮(更佳的潜在的生化前体);如此,遑论硅基生命的存在。
