The Wider Image: In Greenland, a glacier's collapse shows climate impact
Perched on a cliff above Greenland's Helheim glacier, I tried calling my wife in New York on a satellite phone. Before I could leave a message, an explosion broke the arctic silence. More explosions followed. I ran across a muddy tundra to a video camera on a tripod overlooking the glacier and ripped off the trash bag I had used to protect it. I hit record as fast as I could focus. The popping sounds morphed into a low rumble. Over the next half hour, the ice broke apart and a four-mile wide chunk tumbled into the sea in a process called calving - one rarely witnessed on this scale.

Oil fire fighters from Boots and Coots try to put out an oil well fire in Al-Ahmadi where retreating Saddam Hussein forces had set fire to the oil wells, in this March 30, 1991 file photo.

Russell Boyce: The workers were trying to contain the flames with a shield and tube when a blast of heat blew off the helmet of one of the workers.

The flames seem to dwarf the workers, who look almost helpless as they struggle against what looks like the very flames of hell.

To get access to the fires we had to drive through a lake of oil created from the wells. Once we got there, the heat was so intense that you we could not get close. A slight change of wind and we'd be covered in choking fumes.

It was 1991, the pre-digital age, and I was using Nikon F3P to transmit the picture. I had to return to my hotel room, process film, make a colour print, stick a paper-typed caption on the print and use a drum transmitter to send the picture. Initially we transmitted pictures on our satellite phone - which was as big as a large trunk suitcase that two people had to carry as it was so heavy.

We had a generator running in my room as there was no power in Kuwait City so my room always smelt of fumes from the generator, photographic chemicals and fumes from the oil fires.

There was no water, except for about an hour a day, so processing film was difficult: I would fill the bath with water when it was on so that I always had a way to process film.

Eventually, the telephone lines were reconnected so it might have been transmitted over them. The picture took 21 minutes to transmit, each separation, magenta, cyan and yellow, taking seven minutes. REUTERS/Russell Boyce/Files (IRAQ - Tags: DISASTER ENVIRONMENT TPX IMAGES OF THE DAY CONFLICT)

Indonesian businessman and owner of Tambling Wildlife Nature Conservation (TWNC) Tomy Winata uses a satellite phone at the Sumatra Tiger Rescue Centre compound, inside TWNC, near Bandar Lampung, the southern tip of Sumatra island, February 25, 2013. The rescue centre has released five tigers since 2009 on the 45,000 hectares of the TWNC jungle while eight are still under their care. One of the eight will be released next year. Rizal, a tiger keeper, said on a monthly basis the eight tigers eat a total of 80 live pigs, each weighing between 10-12 kilograms. The Sumatran tiger is a rare tiger subspecies that inhabits the Indonesian island of Sumatra. About 440-600 Sumatran tigers, which was classified as critically endangered, were accounted for by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) in 2008. Winata said his company, Artha Graha, has already invested between $20-25 million in TWNC, with monthly costs to sustain the reserve at approximately $150,000. Picture taken February 25, 2013.

A graph of the Reuters internet hook up in Havana showing change in ping latency when connected to cable, though no noticeable change in service, is seen in this screen grab taken by Reuters on January 22, 2013. An undersea fiber-optic cable that promises to bring Cuban Internet and phone communications into the 21st Century stirred to life this week, two years after it was laid between Venezuela and the Caribbean island. Up to now, Cuba has linked to the Internet through satellite hook-ups that are excruciatingly slow due to restrictions under the U.S. trade embargo.

Syrian activist Mahmoud Ali (C) and his friends look at a map in Islahiye, near the Turkish-Syrian border in Gaziantep province, April 2, 2012. Ali walked for two days across rugged hills to Turkey to collect a satellite phone and video equipment promised by dissidents in exile, only to draw a blank. Ali, wanted by the Syrian authorities for membership of the grassroots Local Coordination Committees (LCC), had dodged landmines, helicopters, army shelling and roadblocks in his home province of Idlib to reach the border. Ali's story encapsulates the logistical shortcomings of a year-long popular uprising that has morphed in places, into an insurgency against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, who derides his divided opponents as foreign-backed Islamist "terrorists".

Saif al-Islam Gaddafi is pictured sitting in a plane in Zintan
Saif al-Islam Gaddafi is pictured sitting in a plane in Zintan November 19, 2011. Saif al-Islam Gaddafi, who was captured in Libya's rugged desert, transformed himself during this year's uprising from a relaxed reformer to a belligerent and loyal lieutenant of his father who is now wanted by the ICC accused of crimes against humanity. In his final days on the run, witnesses said Saif al-Islam, 39, was nervous, confused and frightened, at first calling his father by satellite phone, swearing aides to secrecy about his whereabouts and, after his father was killed, seeking to avoid a similarly gruesome fate.

The show, which is owned by Jiangsu Satellite Television, has 24 single ladies standing on the stage and five bachelors coming up one after another in every episode. The bachelors are allowed three videos respectively giving details about their job, love experiences and friends' opinions. The bachelors then have to try all means to keep the lights on, which stands for the ladies' affection, so that they can gain the right to choose one of the ladies to match up with, or to walk away from the show.
