過去３年近くに及ぶシリアの内戦で１万１０００人を超える子どもたちが死亡したことが、２５日までに英シンクタンクによる報告で分かった。 オックスフォード・リサーチ・グループは、シリア団体が２０１１年３月から１３年８月までの死者を記録した名簿を調べ、「盗まれた未来」と題した報告書をまとめた。それによると、この期間に死亡した子どもは１万１４２０人で、さらに増える傾向にある。 爆発による死者が大半を占め…
Israeli artist Eyal Gever explores catastrophic events through his art. In his pieces known simply as Nuclear Bomb and Large Scale Smoke, he fabricates the fiery mushroom cloud that forms from an atomic explosion and the suffocating carbon and debris that billows from a volcanic eruption, respectively.

Visit Justin’s DeviantART Gallery and A Mechanical Mind to check out more of his elaborate creations. Original sculptures (like the ones pictured here) and pieces of jewelry are available via his Etsy shop.”

As many as 10,000 people believed to be dead. The crisis in the Philippines is far from over. With dead bodies reportedly still lying alongside the roads of their destroyed city, residents of Tacloban are desperate for basic aid—food, water, shelter—all of which has been slow to arrive.

"Though two Air Force planes arrived at Tacloban’s wrecked airport this morning, the planes could only carry a few hundred of the more the more than 3,000 people hoping to escape the city’s devastation, where corpses still litter the ground."
"I was pleading with the soldiers. I was kneeling and begging," one survivor said. "Do they want me to die in this airport? They are stone-hearted."
"I don’t believe there is a single structure that is not destroyed or severly damaged in some way - every single building, every single single house," U.S. Marine Brig. Gen Paul Kennedy said after flying to over Tacloban.
Six trucks of military cadaver collectors have begun to scour the island, but the soldiers are apparently overwhelmed. “There are bodies everywhere, we do not have enough people to get to them,” said one driver.
