The Wider Image: Splash! Life as a mermaid
Children with disabilities being treated at Brazil's hospitals, where economic hardship has crimped services, are getting an emotional lift from a mythical creature of the sea: a mermaid. But in this instance, the siren is quite real. Sereia Carol (Mermaid Carol) has earned her living portraying a mermaid and teaching mermaiding since 2012, when she left her job of 10 years as a veterinarian. She is paid for performing at events such as children's parties but donates her time at hospitals. Dressed in costume with a long, shiny green tail, she chats with young patients and "they feel included, cherished." "It is a very beautiful and gratifying thing."

Australia's major banks kick off their reporting season this week with their shares suffering the worst start to a year since the global financial crisis, as a slowing mortgage market and tighter capital rules crimp margins and profits.

People walk past an old banner with an image of Venezuela's President Nicolas Maduro in Caracas August 13, 2015. Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro's popularity fell to 24.3 percent in July, hurt by voracious inflation and shortages of goods ranging from spare parts to shampoo, according to respected local pollster Datanalisis. The oil-producing country is suffering from a brutal recession stemming in part from strict controls that crimp access to hard currency and imports, and aggravated by the tumble in crude prices.

A vendor at a women's clothing stall at a traditional market waits for customers in Jakarta, Indonesia June 6, 2015. The Muslim fasting month is traditionally a time of plenty in Indonesia: shoppers throng Jakarta's markets snapping up gifts to exchange at extravagant fast-breaking celebrations. But this year, Ramadan - which runs from mid-June - will be a more abstemious affair because widespread job losses, a spike in inflation and lower earnings from commodities that Indonesia sells to the world have crimped consumers' purchasing power.

A worker mops the floor in front of a closed shop inside a MGF Metropolitan mall in New Delhi February 23, 2015. A severe shortage of attractive malls has made setting up shop in India easier said than done, crimping expansion plans for both foreign retailers such as Lacoste and domestic giants like department store chain Shoppers Stop. India's searing heat, heavy traffic and cluttered pavements make malls the most popular option for urban middle class consumers looking for a day out. But many centres - despite having been built in the last decade - are struggling to draw shoppers or retailers because of poor design or because they are difficult to manage.

Petroleo Brasileiro SA, as Petrobras is formally known, also plans to cut investment by 30 percent as part of a plan to preserve cash as a contract-fixing, bribery and political kickback scandal cuts it out of financial markets and falling oil prices crimp revenue, the paper said.
