The Wider Image: Tequila boom rooted in traditional farming techniques
A growing thirst for tequila from New York to Tokyo has made the sale of the drink into a multibillion-dollar industry, but its production remains rooted in centuries-old methods of farming using hand tools and packs of mules. Mexico's western state of Jalisco is the heartland of the tequila industry, where 'jimadores,' the farmers of the agave cactus from which the spirit is distilled, have worked the fields for generations. "I am so proud to be a jimador, we are the first in the chain of the tequila industry, without us there is no tequila," said Mario Perez, a 39-year-old jimador. But the popularity of tequila has driven a worsening shortage of the agave, while some of the younger generation shun what was once a highly respected job. "In the old days to be a jimador was a respected job, now you are a simple worker," said Perez. "But it is a work of great tradition." REUTERS/Carlos Jasso SEARCH "JASSO TEQUILA" FOR THIS STORY.

A bagpiper from the Australian army salutes during a dawn ceremony marking the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Gallipoli, at Anzac Cove in Gallipoli April 25, 2015. The battle on Turkey's Gallipoli peninsula was one of the bloodiest of the Great War, as thousands of soldiers from the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) were cut down by machinegun and artillery fire as they struggled ashore on a narrow beach.The fighting would eventually claim more than 130,000 lives, 87,000 of them on the Ottoman side, before the Turks finally repulsed the poorly planned Allied campaign.

Workers put the final touches during the restoration of the Great Synagogue in Edirne
Workers put the final touches during the restoration of the Great Synagogue in Edirne, western Turkey, February 26, 2015. When the domes of Edirne's abandoned Great Synagogue caved in, Rifat Mitrani, the town's last Jew, knew it spelled the end of nearly two millennia of Jewish heritage in this Turkish town. As a boy, Mitrani studied Hebrew in the synagogue's gardens and, in the 1970s, dispatched its Torah to Istanbul after the community shrank to just three families. In 1975, he unlocked its doors and swept away the cobwebs to marry his wife Sara. Now a five-year, $2.5 million government project has restored the synagogue's lead-clad domes and resplendent interior ahead of its Thursday re-opening, the first temple to open in Turkey in two generations, but one without worshippers. It is part of a relaxation of curbs on religious minorities ushered in during President Tayyip Erdogan's 12 years in power. Yet it coincides with a spike in anti-Semitism in predominantly Muslim Turkey and a wave of Jews moving away, say members of the aging community, which has shrunk by more than a third in the last quarter century.

When the domes of Edirne's abandoned Great Synagogue caved in Mitrani knew it spelled the end of nearly two millennia of Jewish heritage in this Turkish town. As a boy, he studied Hebrew in the synagogue's gardens and, in the 1970s, dispatched its Torah to Istanbul after the community shrank to just three families. In 1975, he unlocked its doors and swept away the cobwebs to marry his wife Sara. Now a five-year, $2.5 million government project has restored the synagogue's lead-clad domes and resplendent interior ahead of its Thursday re-opening, the first temple to open in Turkey in two generations, but one without worshippers. It is part of a relaxation of curbs on religious minorities ushered in during President Tayyip Erdogan's 12 years in power. Yet it coincides with a spike in anti-Semitism in predominantly Muslim Turkey and a wave of Jews moving away, say members of the aging community, which has shrunk by more than a third in the last quarter century.Picture taken February 26, 2015.

Workers put the final touches during the restoration of the Great Synagogue in Edirne, western Turkey, February 26, 2015. When the domes of Edirne's abandoned Great Synagogue caved in, Rifat Mitrani, the town's last Jew, knew it spelled the end of nearly two millennia of Jewish heritage in this Turkish town. As a boy, Mitrani studied Hebrew in the synagogue's gardens and, in the 1970s, dispatched its Torah to Istanbul after the community shrank to just three families. In 1975, he unlocked its doors and swept away the cobwebs to marry his wife Sara.

A detail of a resin sculpture, called "All Together Now", by artist Andrew Edward's is seen after being unveiled in the remains of St Luke's Church in Liverpool, northern England December 15 , 2014. The sculpture, depicting the Christmas Day football match between German and British soldiers fighting on the front line in World War One in 1914, will be displayed in the church that was damaged during German bombing of Liverpool in 1941. It will be displayed in the Liverpool church for a week, before being taken to be displayed at the area near Flanders where the football match took place. The longer term plan is for a permanent sculpture to be cast in bronze from the resin-finished version. REUTERS/Phil Noble (BRITAIN - Tags: SOCIETY SPORT SOCCER CONFLICT)

World War One bullets are seen from a British trench discovered during work to install new sewers in a street near Ypres, western Belgiuim, October 20, 2014. Centenary commemorations this year have spiked international interest particularly in the Ypres area, which saw some of the heaviest fighting and is now dotted with war cemeteries. Some 65 million soldiers mobilised for the Great War, around 9 million were killed, 20 million injured and nearly 7 million taken prisoner. Belgium will hold ceremonies on October 28 to mark the 100th anniversary of the First Battle of Ypres and the flooding of the Yser plain at Nieuwpoort - events that blocked the German advance and set up almost four years of trench warfare.

A flag commemorating the First World War flies in the city of Lisburn
A flag commemorating the First World War flies in the city of Lisburn August 18, 2014. It is only flown in Protestant or Loyalist areas of Northern Ireland. In Belfast, the flags of Israel and the Palestinians are potent symbols of conflict, but they divide Catholics and Protestants rather than Jews and Muslims. In the complex web of alliances that underpins Northern Ireland politics, the star of David has been adopted by pro-British Loyalists, mainly Protestants, many of whom sympathise with Israel's struggle against Islamic militants. Flying the green, black and red of flag of the Palestinian territories, meanwhile, is a sign of support for Catholic Irish Nationalism and their aspiration for a united Ireland against what many see as a British occupation. The flags are among dozens that have been adopted by the working class Catholic and Protestant areas that have for decades been at the focus of sectarian violence in Northern Ireland.

Ship's mascot Hector looks for divers returning from the wreck of a German WWI warship at Scapa Flow in the Orkney Islands, Scotland, May 7, 2014. During both World Wars, Scapa Flow was an important British naval base, and the site of significant loss of life. Following the end of World War One, 74 German warships were interned there, and on June 21, 1919 most were deliberately sunk, or scuttled, at the orders of German Rear Admiral Ludwig Von Reuter, who mistakenly thought that the Armistice had broken down and wanted to prevent the British from using the ships. Now Scapa Flow is a popular site for divers, who explore the few wrecks that still remain at the bottom. The year 2014 marks the 100th anniversary of the start of the First World War.
