The country is in chaos, but its leaders aren’t going anywhere.

Correction at 1:58: It’s been brought to our notice that the Supreme Court tried to strip the country’s National Assembly of its powers in March 2017 and not 2016. We regret the error.

The collapse of Venezuela and President Maduro’s rise to dictatorship.
Venezuela was once the richest country in Latin America.
It has the largest known oil reserves in the world. And its democratic government was once praised world wide.
But today, Venezuela’s democratic institutions and its economy are in shambles.
The country has the highest inflation in the world, making food and medicine inaccessible to most Venezuelans.
Over the last four years, its GDP has fallen 35%, which is a sharper drop than the one seen during the Great Depression in the US.
The country’s murder rate has surpassed that of the most dangerous cities in the world.

These conditions have sparked months of protests against the president, Nicolas Maduro. And it’s easy to see why: the country has become measurably worse since his election in 2013.

A straightforward explanation of Climate Change: the heat from human emissions is roughly equal to exploding 400,000 Hiroshima atomic bombs every day. Historically, every time carbon dioxide levels increase in Earth’s atmosphere, the average surface temperature increases, ice melts, and the seas rise.

Food fraud often boils down to politics or semantics. Something labeled parmesan cheese may not come from Parma, for instance. But sometimes food producers try to feed us cheap fillers and other lies. In this episode of Speaking of Chemistry, Sophia Cai explains how scientists, regulators, and food makers are relying on chemistry to make sure consumers get what they pay for.

Every year, more than 13,000 people die of AIDS in the United States. In Britain, Germany and France, it’s less than 250. What explains the difference?

This video is based on an article I wrote in The New Republic last year:
http://www.newrepublic.com/article/117691/aids-hit-united-states-harder-other-developed-countries-why

And before you yell at me in the comments: Yes, differences in AIDS surveillance systems also explain some of the variance. I wrote about this here: http://www.newrepublic.com/article/117789/aids-data-country-why-its-difficult-compare-them
