A doctor examines x-ray images of a young man during an army draft held at a school in Klong Toey, the dockside slum area in Bangkok April 7, 2013. Men over 21 must serve in the army, which has always been at the forefront of Thai politics but has come in for some rare criticism since 91 people died in anti-government protests in 2010. Those who volunteer serve six months, but others choose the annual lottery, which goes on for 10 days in recruitment centres around Thailand. Nobody wants a red card, which means serving for two years, with the chance of a posting in the dangerous south. Only those not considered physically capable of service, the mentally ill and those who have significantly altered their physical appearance - such as transgenders, who are more visible in Thai society than in many other nations - are exempt.

Three Proboscis monkeys are undergoing checkups ahead of being sent to Apenheul Primate Park in the Netherlands as part of an animal exchange to kick start a captive breeding programme. The zoo in Singapore is the first wildlife reserve to successfully breed Proboscis monkeys in a captive environment, according to an official. REUTERS/Joel Boh (SINGAPORE - Tags: ANIMALS SOCIETY)

A radiation monitor indicates 0.41 microsieverts per hour at Mutsuo Mito's dairy farm in Shinchimachi, Fukushima Prefecture, northern Japan, April 13, 2011, located about 50km from the tsunami-crippled nuclear reactor. Mito's farm has been throwing away about 1,200 litres of fresh milk daily and he has submitted milk samples to the government twice already, but have yet to receive a response as to whether they will be allowed to sell their milk since shipments of unprocessed milk . Generally, people are exposed to about 1 to 10 millisieverts of radiation a year from natural background radiation, caused by radioactive substances in the air and soil.

Residents of a Japanese village well-outside of an evacuation zone set around a crippled nuclear power plant have been told to prepare to be evacuated, a local official said on Monday. The monitor indicates 1.26 microsieverts per hour.
