A blow to the heart of the city

Dear readers,

In the aftermath of the Francis Scott Key Bridge collapse in Baltimore, we reconstructed the accident in a series of graphs and maps that show the path of the container ship as it lost control and rammed into a pillar in the middle of the night, bringing down the structure, killing several workers and delivering a blow to the economic heart of the city.

This week we bring you two interviews. One is with Shlomo Ben Ami, a former Israeli minister who discusses the impact of the Israel-Hamas war on America's Jewish community; the other is with the popular neuroscientist Robert Sapolsky, who goes over his theory that humans have no free will but are instead mostly moved by factors beyond their control.

We also analyzed Mexican president Andrés Manuel López Obrador's new strategy to influence the vote of Mexicans living in the U.S., and revisited the sad life of Mileva Einstein, the first wife of the Nobel Prize winner and a brilliant scientist in her own right who was nevertheless treated like a maid.

We hope you enjoy this selection of articles from El País USA Edition.
