We discuss how policies that punish pregnant women for substance use fail to help mothers or their babies; how little has changed in Zimbabwe since Mugabe’s ouster; the U.S. response system for infectious diseases; the challenges facing civilians after deployment; supporting students with disabilities; and how to prevent escalation with Iran.
