The Wider Image: Home and hospital for dust-lung miners
Numbers used on X-ray images are placed at a desk in the radiology department of Yangjia Hospital in Wuyi County, Zhejiang Province, China October 19, 2015. Behind the vine-covered walls and broken windows of the radiology department, a single staff member and a single X-ray machine serve the few remaining pneumoconiosis patients at Yangjia Hospital. At Yangjia Hospital in a remote corner of China's eastern Zhejiang province, sufferers of dust lung spend much of their time hooked up to oxygen to treat lungs ravaged by work in a local mine, since shut down. Once equipped with high-tech machinery and 150 staff, the hospital has suffered from falling numbers and a lack of funding. With some of its windows broken and certain rooms abandoned, the hospital now treats just 30 patients. It's a close-knit community including family members, who prepare meals in makeshift kitchens, grow vegetables in the grounds and play cards to kill time. Dust lung, also known as pneumoconiosis, affects an estimated 6 million workers in China. REUTERS/Damir Sagolj PICTURE 21 OF 26 FOR WIDER IMAGE STORY "HOME AND HOSPITAL FOR DUST-LUNG MINERS".

Kaesong, with investors from South Korea, was a rare source of hard currency for North Korea. It was established even though North Korea is technically still at war with South Korea, one of the world's richest countries, since the 1950-53 Korean War ended not in a treaty but a truce. Since it opened in 2004, the Kaesong complex has generated about $90 million annually in wages paid directly to the North's state agency that manages the zone.

The atmosphere reflects the independent spirit that has contributed to the raw identity of the game that has just sold 20 million copies. The founders want to keep it that way. Mojang, the Swedish word for gadget, has so far resisted selling to a bigger player or listing on the stock market even though that could mean monster payoffs for the 25-person staff and funding to expand dramatically its games.

INDIAN WOMAN AT CALL CENTRE PROVIDES INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMER SUPPORT IN BANGALORE.
An Indian woman at a call centre provides service support to international customers in the southern city of Bangalore Wednesday March 17, 2004. The hiring frenzy at call centres in India is the flip side of daily tales pouring out of the US and Britain, where thousands of software and back-office jobs are being cut as companies take advantage of cheap communications offshore to drive down costs. India is the undisputed leader of emerging markets to which developed economies are outsourcing high-technology jobs, IT consultancy firm Gartner said in a report released on Wednesday. The $3.6 billion industry in India is seen rocketing to 13.8 billion by 2007 with the number of jobs quadrupling to 1 million. REUTERS/Sherwin Crasto SC/
