The Wider Image: Quarantine millennials face bedtimes and old rules as they move home
Reuters photographer Nora Savosnick's father Mats Haraldsson's old film camera sits on the kitchen table at their home, as Savosnick completes 14-days of quarantine since arriving from New York, during the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak, in Oslo, Norway, March 26, 2020. "In the end, I think did some judging about the economic possibilities of becoming a photographer, and I don't think I had the skills... to make it something to live off," said Haraldsson.

The Wider Image: Escape from North Korea
Wooden crutches made by Ji Sung-ho are seen in Seoul, South Korea, August 13, 2017. Sung-ho is from Hoeryong, near the border with China. He left North Korea in 2006 with a pair of wooden crutches. "I lived as a child beggar in North Korea. I was stealing coals from a train when I fell off and lost my leg and my hand. I had to bring the crutches with me. If I didn't have them, I wouldn't have made it here. The state doesn't help you in North Korea, and people who need crutches make their own. Mine are therefore not factory-made, so they're not perfect and break easily. I had several pairs of crutches but they all broke, and this was the last pair. I used these crutches for 10 years, until I was 25, when I arrived in South Korea. I would steal coal from moving trains and fall off, destroying my crutches. Or I would get beaten up by the police and they'd take and then break my crutches. When they broke, I would make new ones. When I had new ones, I could go back outside. When I first arrived in South Korea I thought about throwing them out. South Korea's intelligence agency gave me a prosthetic leg. My friends said I should throw the crutches out and not think about North Korea. They said I should show Kim Jong Il I was living a new life in South Korea and throw out everything I had from the North. Some asked if I got upset when I saw my crutches. But I couldn't just throw them out. To make my crutches, my friends had given me some wood that they had bought, and someone I knew in North Korea who had carpentry skills had made them. It was my father who added the final touches. There is a lot of love from my North Korean friends and family in these crutches. So I didn't throw them out. The South Korean government gave me some new crutches because the wood from my North Korean ones is hard and painful. But I still keep them, so as not to forget those memories."

A Picture and its Story: Me and my crutches - a North Korean defector's story
Ji Seong-ho, 35, a North Korean defector who appeared at President Trump's State of the Union address this week, is from Hoeryong, near the border with China. He told Reuters last year about the wooden crutches that he left North Korea with in 2006. This is an edited translation of his story: "I lived as a child beggar in North Korea.

Amateur trader Yan Qin checks her smartphone for stock reports in New York December 7, 2010. Qin, 40, who describes her strategy as "impulsive," said she recently purchased 300 shares of Bank of America. Though she didn't realize it at the time, the amateur trader likely got a tad better deal on the stock than even the most sophisticated Wall Street traders, as her trade was routed it to a large firm known as a market maker, which sold Qin the stock at a slightly cheaper price. The market maker also paid E*Trade Financial Corp a small stipend, and in return got a chance to profit from what the industry considers "uninformed" trades -- or dumb money, to use the term of art.
