Stunning Portraits Of The World’s Remotest Tribes Before They Pass Away (46 pics)
Living in a concrete box with hot water pouring from the tap, a refrigerator cooling our food and wi-fi connecting us to the rest of the world, we can barely imagine a day in a life of, say, Tsaatan people. They move 5 to 10 times per year, building huts when the temperature is -40 and herding reindeer for transportation, clothing and food. “Before They Pass Away,” a long-term project by photographer Jimmy Nelson, gives us the unique opportunity to discover more than 30 secluded and slowly vanishing tribes from all over the world.

What your country’s emoji use says about you Significant strides were made in the world of international emoji understanding this week, with the publication of a groundbreaking report. Swiftkey, a British software company, trawled through “more than 1bn pieces of emoji data” to extract some enlightening trends in global emoji use across speakers of 16 different languages.
