Locals search for rubies in waste waters produced from a nearby ruby mine in Mogok February 28, 2014. Mogok, also known as the Ruby Land, is home to the world-famous Myanmar ruby. Residents from Mogok and nearby areas used to mine rubies for generations, usually on a manageable scale with traditional manual methods, until it was restricted due to joint ventures between the ruling government and its close business associates about 20 years ago. Unscrupulous mining by joint ventures, using heavy machinery, has left the town with dumps and craters. According to official data compiled by the state-run Central Statistical Organisation, the total ruby production in the country was over 19 million kilograms in the 2012-2013 (April/March) fiscal year and over 43 million kilograms in the 2011-2012 fiscal year.

A man searches for food in a garbage container along a street, with the Four Towers business district pictured in the background, in Tetuan, Madrid, January 28, 2014. Last year, families and activists from the 15M indignant movement founded a food bank in Tetuan, a working-class neighbourhood of Madrid. It does not simply hand out donations; instead, the families who become recipients are expected to collaborate with the food bank by helping to collect and distribute food. Every week they stand outside local supermarkets picking up donations. Afterwards, they have to do an inventory of the food and allocate portions to each family, theirs included, which they distribute every two weeks. Currently more than 30 families (over a hundred people) are involved in the project. The development of social movements like the Tetuan food bank have come under the spotlight in Spain, whose economy has been in and out of recession since a property bubble burst six years ago, sending unemployment soaring to record highs. New registered jobless figures are being released in Spain on Tuesday, February 4. Picture taken January 28, 2014. REUTERS/Susana Vera (SPAIN - Tags: SOCIETY POVERTY BUSINESS EMPLOYMENT FOOD)
