Jeff & Erin's EPIC Wedding Trailer: Save the Date
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. 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.

Cannes Lions: Dumb Ways to Die scoops top award | Media Link to video: Dumb Ways to Die: Australian rail company's public safety warning A campaign to promote train safety featuring animated characters involved in extremely Dumb Ways to Die has been named the best TV advertising campaign in the world, pipping Channel 4 's Meet the Superhumans ad for the London Paralympics. Dumb Ways to Die , a clever public service message from Metro Trains in Melbourne, has swept all before it becoming the most successful ad campaign in the history of the Cannes International Festival of Creativity. 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 500m 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.
Wealth Inequality in America, Perception vs Reality
Is this the worst first day in history? Rookie news anchor A.J. Clemente sacked after first words on air are 'f****** s***' - Americas - World Mr Clemente, a rookie KFYR news anchor, opened his first - and indeed last - broadcast for his new station by saying 'f****** s***' into a live microphone, leaving his co-anchor, and no doubt his producers, dumbfounded by his sweary outburst. 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. Clemente then thanks Tieu for the introduction and begins talking about his history, saying he is a graduate of West Virginia University and: 'I’m used to, you know, from being from the East Coast.' He goes on to read a news story about a fatal crash that happened earlier that day. Following complaints about the broadcast KFYR-TV responded with a post on Facebook.

Link to video: GCSE students in Paddington on their results After the tears and despair of GCSE results day, when teenagers up and down the country received D grades in their English rather than expected Cs, a wave of recrimination and threats swept through the education establishment this week. Estimates of the extent of the problem grew with every passing day, lawyers for education authorities drafted plans for litigation, and teachers' leaders piled pressure on the education secretary, Michael Gove , accusing him of political interference that has hit the poorest, most disadvantaged students hardest. "These are the right grades, absolutely," said Glenys Stacey, chief executive of the exams regulator, Ofqual, when news of the problem first broke.

The not-so intrepid fox stuck fast in a hole was found by builders renovating an office in Hatfield. He was later freed into the wilds of Hertfordshire Photograph: RSPCA The RSPCA has been called out to rescue a flustered fox – which had been "outfoxed" by a floorboard. Builders at the University of Hertfordshire spotted the trapped animal's head poking out of a hole in the floor while renovating an office this week. It is thought the fox was trying to wriggle through the section of flooring when it became stuck fast at the university's de Havilland campus in Hatfield. RSPCA animal welfare officer Kate Wright, who freed the fox, said: "I have to admit that when I arrived I was faced with a very odd sight. Fox news: floorboard outfoxes flustered fox | UK news

Ice-cream vans, by Luke Stephenson – in pictures | Art and design
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 ] Ice cream vans , such as this one, announce their arrivals at the stops along their "runs" with musical chimes, played via loudspeakers. Glasgow Ice Cream Wars
