Scottish country dancer Mairie McGillivray,16, dances on the beach at Bridgend as she poses for a photograph on the Hebridean island of Islay, March 11, 2014. Mairie will vote "yes" in the referendum and said, "I believe that Scotland isn't governed by democratic means due to our lack of representation in Westminster and that we would be better off as an independent nation, both culturally and financially." When Scotland's nationalist government dropped the voting age to 16 for this year's referendum on independence, it was widely seen as banking on teenage radicalism to ensure a break with the United Kingdom. If so, it may have miscalculated. Two opinion polls and Reuters interviews with 25 Scottish teenagers in 10 different locations suggest the ruling Scottish National Party (SNP) can't be sure of their support in the Sept. 18 referendum. Overall, polls show Scots remain doubtful about separation, although the proportion of those supporting independence has increased over the past year. Picture taken March 11, 2014.

Turkey's main opposition Republican People's Party (CHP) candidate Nesrin Baytok (C) is flanked by a group of men as she campaigns for upcoming early parliamentary elections in Ankara July 17, 2007. A bid to radically lift the number of women elected to Turkey's parliament, which has one of the lowest levels of female representation in the world, looks set to fail this Sunday as not enough women are running, and those who are candidates are often too low on the electoral lists to have a realistic chance of getting elected in the system of weighted proportional representation.

A bullock cart carrying a symbolic representation of the AIDS virus in the form of a demon crosses a busy road during a rally against AIDS in Bombay November 30. It is being projected that in India the number of persons infected with HIV will triple to 12 million in the year 2000 from the current estimate of four million. International experts say that China and India, the world's two most populous nations, will determine whether AIDS in Asia can be contained or if it explodes into a catastrophe exceeding African proportions.
