Jeff & Erin's EPIC Wedding Trailer: Save the Date. Photos of Children From Around the World With Their Most Prized Possessions. Chiwa – Mchinji, Malawi Shot over a period of 18 months, Italian photographer Gabriele Galimberti‘s project Toy Stories compiles photos of children from around the world with their prized possesions—their toys.

Photos of Children From Around the World With Their Most Prized Possessions

Galimberti explores the universality of being a kid amidst the diversity of the countless corners of the world, saying, “at their age, they are pretty all much the same; they just want to play.” But it’s how they play that seemed to differ from country to country. Galimberti found that children in richer countries were more possessive with their toys and that it took time before they allowed him to play with them (which is what he would do pre-shoot before arranging the toys), whereas in poorer countries he found it much easier to quickly interact, even if there were just two or three toys between them.

The TV and online ad, which features characters killed in bizarre ways such as poking a bear with a stick and swimming with piranhas to push the idea that deaths due to silly activity on or around trains are the most pointless, has become an internet hit notching up more than 50m views on YouTube. The campaign, by agency McCann Melbourne, has taken five grand prix awards, the most that a campaign has ever notched up at the awards. It has won the film, radio, PR, direct and integrated categories.

Video footage of the incident, which has now gone viral, shows Mr Clemente's colleague Van Tieu, who was clearly thrown by his colourful language, stumble mid-introduction.

Clive Owen on Shadow Dancer: 'It's not apportioning blame or being judgemental' After capitalism: ''Beyond Capitalism" Ice-cream vans, by Luke Stephenson – in pictures. Glasgow Ice Cream Wars. Ice cream vans, such as this one, announce their arrivals at the stops along their "runs" with musical chimes, played via loudspeakers. The Glasgow Ice Cream Wars were conflicts in the East End of Glasgow in Scotland in the 1980s between rival ice cream van operators, over lucrative drug distribution territory. The conflicts involved daily violence and intimidation, and led to the deaths by arson of several members of the family of one ice cream van driver and a consequent court case that lasted for 20 years.

The conflicts generated widespread public outrage, and earned the Strathclyde Police the nickname the "serious chimes squad" (a pun on Serious Crime Squad) for its perceived failure to address them.[1][2] Store Wars: Domino's and Pizza Hut. Each week we look at two shops competing in the same sector, and review what they are offering customers: from how helpful the staff are to the best bargains on offer. Our review will be based on a visit to stores on the same high street, or online, so it will be just a snapshot of how the retailer is performing. To get a better idea of which retailers are delivering and which are falling short, we would like you to tell us about your experiences of the same shops. Some weeks, both stores we visit may do a good job; other weeks there will be one that stands out as being much better or worse.

Your reviews will help us discover if this is a trend. This week, we compare the take-away operations on offer from Domino's Pizza and Pizza Hut.
