The world celebrated the International Humanitarian Day on August 19. The purpose of the day was to pay tribute to those charitable aid workers who serve the humanity regardless of race, colour, creed, and religious differences.

For those who believe in the yeti, the news can only be described as, well, abominable. Science has cast its methodical eye on samples of hair reputed to have been left by the Himalayan snowman of legend... and determined they came from a bear or a goat. Similarly crushing disappointment lies in wait for those who believe in Big Foot, the yeti's North American counterpart; in the almasty, the elusive man of the Central Asian wastes; and in the orang pendek, a bipedal hominid reputed to roam the mountainous forests of Sumatra.
Quentin Nespoulous is standing by Canal Saint Martin, a once run-down waterway in Paris that has been cleaned up and turned into a popular haunt for young bohemians. Only this 19-year-old is not here for a hipster hangout or a canalside bistro, but to fish. Nespoulous is part of a new wave of "street fishers" taking to the French capital's canals as well as the Seine, where pike, giant catfish and black bass have returned in large numbers to healthier waters.
From the Galapagos Islands to Australia's Coral Sea and a marine park off the coast of Mexico, the documentary "Mission Blue" navigates the journey of renowned oceanographer Sylvia Earle as she travels the globe to save the planet's threatened seas.

It's a world away from the glitz and glamour of "Baywatch", but in time of war Gaza's most devoted lifeguard is passionate about keeping the beach a little bit safer. "I only love two things in my life: rescue work and people," said Mohammed Bar, 21, dressed in black trunks and a white municipality T-shirt as he scans the horizon from his watchtower.
ImageA whiff of jasmine, cigarette smoke and the furtive shadow of a cat darting across the silver screen -summertime in Greece means open-air cinema, a well-loved tradition for nearly a century. In the projection room of "Palas" ("Palace"), one of Athens' oldest movie theatres in the middle-class district of Pangrati, second-generation owner Matthaios Potagas is a whirl of motion that belies his gaunt 86-year-old frame and white beard.
Closing in on his 104th birthday, a twinkle-toed Japanese sprinter has thrown down the challenge to the world's fastest man Usain Bolt, telling him: "let's rumble!" Hidekichi Miyazaki - who holds the 100 metres world record for centenarians at 29.83 seconds and is dubbed 'Golden Bolt' after the Jamaican flyer - plans to wait another five years for his dream race and was happy to reveal his secret weapon: his daughter's tangerine jam.
