6 Stories Show the Human Toll of Poland ’ s Strict Abortion Laws
This project was supported by the Pulitzer Center [time-brightcove not-tgx=”true”] Krzysztof Sowinski has cried every day since his wife Marta, who was five months pregnant, died of sepsis in 2022; he believes doctors put Marta’s life in danger by not giving them the option to terminate the pregnancy while the fetus’ heart was still beating. Janusz Kucharski also lost his partner Justyna to sepsis in the fifth month of a pregnancy. She left behind two boys. It is likely, reproductive-rights advocates say, that these women would be alive if not for Poland’s increasingly restrictive abort...

AI helps crack salt water ’s curious electrical properties
Water is a near-universal solvent, able to dissolve substances ranging from limestone to the sugar in your coffee. That chemical superpower originates, oddly enough, in water’s electrical properties. It can oppose and almost entirely cancel electric fields—including attractions among dissolved ions that might otherwise pull them together. Curiously, dissolving salt in water weakens that electrical response. Now, a team of physicists has figured out exactly why this happens, using state-of-the-art computer simulations bolstered by artificial intelligence (AI). “This is a fundamental property of water and one can...
