Acuna belongs to one of the 13 families, all related, who are at risk of having their homes demolished by orders of Madrid's Town Hall. The families, whose members are mostly unemployed, have lived in a former paint factory as well as in shacks they built themselves for the past ten years. They say they have not been offered any housing alternatives by Madrid's Town Hall and they are evicted to make way for future plans to build a road on the land they occupy.

Persian shoes from the 17th century are on display in the "On a Pedestal: From Renaissance Chopines to Baroque Heels" exhibition at the Bata Shoe Museum in Toronto December 15, 2009. Centuries before Sarah Palin and Michelle Obama were sized up over their shoes women's feet had been a platform for showing off their economic and political status.
This new exhibit of more than 60 pairs of rare platform and high heel shoes shows how extreme and impractical footwear became a fashionable symbol of social standing in the 16th and 17th centuries.

A Romanian prostitute poses in the brothel "Pussy Club" in Schoenefeld April 15, 2009. It did not take long for the world's latest economic crisis to have a trickle-down effect on the world's oldest profession in Germany. But in one of the few countries where prostitution is legal -- and thus extraordinarily transparent -- the industry has responded with a special stimulus package of its own: modern marketing tools, rebates and gimmicks to boost flagging demand.
