THE DALAI LAMA Charlie Campbell’s March 18 profile of the spiritual leader drew praise from readers for the way it crystallized complex spiritual and political issues. “TIME magazine has become the best source of clear Buddhist perspective and teaching that I subscribe to,” wrote Kristen Larson, a Diamond Sangha Zen teacher in Port Angeles, Wash. Dorjee Lhamo, who lives in Germany and has Tibetan roots, described being “so happy to be able to just show my friends an article for them to understand what ‘Tibet’ is and what is happening to us Tibetans.” And as someone who practices Buddhism in a place where his belief system is “not well understood,” Benjamin Peters of Lexington, Ky., wrote that the article provides “much-needed clarity about the Dalai Lama’s life.”‘If [we] listen to…

boeing, the faa and newly nervous flyers

MARCH 10 DAWNED IN ADDIS ABABA WITH excellent visibility and little wind, perfect flying weather that nonetheless became a backdrop for tragedy. That morning, Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 crashed minutes after takeoff, killing all 157 people aboard. Emergency responders discovered only burning wreckage and bodies. The victims’ loved ones were left to grieve and wait for answers.The world waits with them. The incident was the second fatal crash involving a Boeing 737 Max 8 in just five months. Another Max 8, flown by Indonesia’s Lion Air, also crashed quickly after takeoff in October, killing everyone aboard. Experts have speculated that a new automated system meant to prevent “aerodynamic stalls”—which occur when a plane isn’t producing enough lift and are addressed by pointing its nose down—may have sent the Lion Air…

why is saudi arabia targeting women who flee the kingdom?

ABOUT SIX MONTHS AGO, TWO SAUDI SISters, known by the aliases Reem and Rawan, found themselves stranded in Hong Kong after they bolted during a family vacation to Sri Lanka. They say that, during a stopover, Saudi consular officials prevented them from boarding a flight to Australia, where they had intended to seek asylum. Now, they face an April 8 deadline to leave Hong Kong after being told in March that their stay will be “tolerated” a few more weeks; where they’ll go is unclear.Their plight is the latest in a string of high-profile cases of Saudi women who manage to escape the grip of repressive families in the ultraconservative Gulf state—the sisters describe their home situation as “slavery”—only to land in the crosshairs of the kingdom’s efforts to suppress…

DIEDCarolee Schneemann Artists’ artistBy Laurie SimmonsALTHOUGH CAROLEE SCHNEEMANN CLAIMED SHE WOULD LIVE and die as a painter, her work broke nearly every rule of that tradition. Carolee established a catalog of thought on gender, sex and the politics of representation from which I and almost every woman artist I admire has taken a page. Way before the ideas of sex-positive feminism emerged in the ’80s, her body-positive, pro-sensual art put her at odds with both ’60s feminists who saw her as exploitative and male artists and critics who saw her work as a tease.Like young artists today, Carolee, who died on March 6 at 79, moved freely between mediums—going beyond painting to film, performance, photography, installation, collage, sculpture, drawing and writing. She reimagined the ways the human body could become…

two brothers in azerbaijan pay the price for speaking out

NEITHER OF THE HUSEYNOV BROTHERS got to see their mother before she died last year. Journalist Emin Huseynov had been stripped of Azeri citizenship and rendered stateless after he escaped the oil-rich Central Asian country for Switzerland in 2015. His younger brother Mehman, also a reporter, was serving a two-year sentence for allegedly defaming a police officer he said tortured him.Denied the chance to visit his mother in the hospital, Mehman was granted only a few hours’ leave to attend her funeral. In a graveside statement, he angered authorities anew when he criticized President Ilham Aliyev and said he would continue exposing the high-level corruption that affects some 10 million Azeris. “I wanted to show them that even in the most difficult part of my life, you can’t break my…
