The Algiers Casbah is a UNESCO World heritage site that includes the Sidi Ramdane mosque and former fortress, 10 centuries old. Decay from the passing years, as well as earthquake damage in 2003, leads some to consider a move to modern apartments with financial backing from the government. Others refuse to leave a neighbourhood they have called home for decades. Picture taken December 3, 2015. REUTERS/Zohra Bensemra

A Syrian man sleeps at a playground in the resort town of Bodrum, Turkey
A Syrian man sleeps at a playground in the resort town of Bodrum, Turkey, September 4, 2015. Turkish authorities stopped 57 people trying to cross to the Greek island of Kos on Thursday night, as migrants trying to reach Europe remained undeterred by the drowning of two toddlers this week on the same route. Images of the tiny body of 3-year old Aylan Kurdi washed up on a beach near the Turkish resort of Bodrum sparked a global outpouring of sympathy, and shocked European governments into renewed focus on tackling the migrant crisis. But the death of Kurdi - along with his 5-year old brother Galip, his mother and nine others - has done little to deter migrants, many refugees from war in the Middle East, from taking to small boats for the 4 km (2 mile) nocturnal crossing to Kos from Bodrum. Coastguards halted three boats carrying 57 Syrians, Afghans and Pakistanis late on Thursday, impounding the vessels and taking the passengers back to Turkey, where they spent the night sleeping under blankets in the yard of the coastguard building.

Human Waste and Earth's Future" at the Miraikan National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation in Tokyo July 3, 2014. The exhibition, which opened at the museum on Wednesday, explores the world of toilets, with the main exhibit centring around a massive toilet into which visitors are allowed to slide to simulate the journey of human waste matter into the sewers. The exhibit also includes five zones that range from showing exactly what one's excrement is made of to how different types of toilets are used around the world, and even a possible space toilet that could be used to grow plants. The exhibit is open until October 5 and costs 1,200 yen ($11.80) to visit. REUTERS/Issei Kato (JAPAN - Tags: SOCIETY HEALTH ENVIRONMENT TPX IMAGES OF THE DAY)

Carlos Aguilez, a dog handler, points to a dog at the D Pet Hotel in New York December 5, 2013. Christmas travel season is one of the busiest times for America's 14,000 boarding facilities and all of the at home pet caretakers. And as Americans increasingly identify animals as members of their families, pet care has undergone an upgrade. Today, many pet hotels offer everything from 24/7 video-cams (so owners can see their pets at all times) to group play sessions and hikes and doggy paddle swims. For a price, of course. U.S. pet owners are on track to spend $2.1 billion on pet boarding expenses in 2013, according to market research firm IBISWorld. While the International Boarding & Pet Services Association estimates the average kennel stay at $30 a day, that number can go much higher, especially on the east and west coasts. At D Pet Hotels in Manhattan's uber-hip Chelsea neighborhood, a basic suite costs $84 a night, while a unit with a full sized human bed goes for $200.
