The Wider Image: Hard questions from children over U.S. police killings
In the eyes of four-year-old Autumn Unaeze, her grandfather in his blue police uniform is a superhero protecting people. Yet, there are troubling realities about police that her mother knows she must begin sharing with her: first, how other officers could harm her black family, and then how law enforcement officers can be targets themselves, after three were killed in an attack near her Baton Rouge home on Sunday. Across the United States, African-American parents, teachers and other adults face a difficult decision - how and at what age to talk to children about a racially charged debate over policing and tensions over the shooting deaths of black men by officers in a country that struggles to end racism. That conversation has grown more urgent in recent weeks. In the tumult of social media, ever-younger children have been exposed to grainy videos of black men dying at the hands of law enforcement or to blanket news coverage of black-led protests over use of police force. Then they've seen the shock in communities whose officers are gunned down in the line of duty. Families that may have once discussed racial disparities in policing with older teens now face questions from preschoolers such as Autumn, who want to know why people are being so mean. Others ask why people are protesting or why police now face ambushes as in Baton Rouge and Dallas, where five officers were killed earlier this month.

Coins are laid on a picnic table to buy lunch at a protest camp in Madrid
Coins are laid on a picnic table to buy lunch at a protest camp in Madrid, June 12, 2013. Members of the Asamblea de Parados de Fontarron (Unemployed assembly of Fontarron), most of them unemployed, set up a camp site late Saturday June 8, 2013 at the public park of their neighbourhood in Fontarron, Madrid, to protest against Spain's unemployment and the government's labour reform. At 27 percent in the first quarter, Spain's unemployment rate is the highest in the European Union after Greece, and even if the country pulls out of recession next year as economists forecast, job creation could lag for some time longer. The camp site was dismantled early June 13, 2013 by police on the grounds that it was illegal. Picture taken June 12, 2013. REUTERS/Susana Vera (SPAIN - Tags: SOCIETY CIVIL UNREST)

Chinese multimillionaire Chen Guangbiao gives money away to street cleaners during an event organized by him, where people representing companies, which Chen claims pollute the environment, attend a parade to be publicly "shamed", in Nanjing, Jiangsu province February 21, 2013. The event also aimed to promote awareness on air pollution. China's air pollution has rekindled a campaign by a Chinese multimillionaire with a streak of showmanship who is raising the alarm by organizing of environment events. Weeks ago Chen, who made his fortune in the recycling business and is a high-profile philanthropist, handed out soda pop-sized cans of air, purportedly from far-flung and pristine regions of China, from Xinjiang in the far northwest to Taiwan off China's southeast coast.

Clothes are seen hanging outside a bus which has been converted into a dwelling for Lu Changshan and his wife, near newly-constructed residential buildings in Hefei, Anhui province, November 12, 2012. Lu, 39, and his 36-year-old wife Zhang Dingmei have been living in a bus for more than three years selling cement and sand as their livelihood. In order to constantly watch over their construction materials and save on rent, they chose to live in the bus. They have moved three times during the past three years to be next to newly-constructed residential buildings where they could have more customers, local media reported.

A view of a slum area of the Akhdam community in Sanaa
A view of a slum area of the Akhdam community in Sanaa October 24, 2012. Yemeni Akhdam, or servants, are similar to hereditary castes, but are distinguished by their African features and the menial jobs they perform. Widespread prejudice places the Akhdam at the bottom of Yemen's social ladder. Asked about the origins of the Akhdam, Yemenis say they are descendants of Ethiopians who crossed the Red Sea to conquer Yemen before the arrival of Islam some 1,400 years ago - making them outsiders in their own country. Most live in slum areas in the outskirts of the capital Sanaa and other main cities. They reside in small huts haphazardly built of wood and cloth, without basic services such as running water, electricity and sewage networks. REUTERS/Khaled Abdullah (YEMEN - Tags: SOCIETY POVERTY)

Luxury brands banking on a China rebound to boost sales may be in for an unpleasant surprise: weak demand in the world's second largest luxury market may last longer than the economic slowdown as Beijing cracks down on conspicuous consumption. The government imposed a "frugal working style" rule on its civil servants, which goes into effect on October 1, 2012, barring them from spending public money on lavish banquets or fancy cars, and from accepting expensive gifts.

Labour unrest in South Africa's platinum belt spread on Wednesday, raising concerns that anger over low wages and poor living conditions could generate fresh violence after 34 striking miners were shot dead by police last week. The strike that started last week at Lonmin's Marikana mine has driven up platinum prices and stoked worries about investing in Africa's biggest economy, where chronic unemployment and income disparities threaten social stability.

A woman cleans the floor in front of a Chanel luxury boutique at the IFC Mall in Shanghai June 4, 2012. China is the world's third biggest market for personal luxury goods, worth at least 160 billion yuan ($25 billion). China's importance for firms such as Louis Vuitton's parent LVMH and Gucci's PPR SA is indisputable: last year, as Europe was mired in financial crisis and the U.S. economy faltered, mainland Chinese shoppers spent an estimated 111 billion yuan ($18 billion) on luxury goods, according to consultants Bain & Co. In the next three years, it is expected to leapfrog over Japan and the United States to take the top spot, with the luxury segment expanding to 180 billion yuan ($28 billion). As it grows, the market is also maturing, moving from so-called aspirational luxury, where bling is king, to what experts call absolute luxury: the desire to be seen as both wealthy and discerning.

But increasing globalisation, and years of growing up watching overseas professional wrestling broadcasts, have given younger Indians a taste for seeing the real thing themselves.

A man talks on his mobile phone next to a woman talking at a public phone shop in central Yangon March 6, 2012. Myanmar has fewer phones per capita than any other country and probably the fewest Internet connections, and that has regional telecoms and IT companies licking their lips. But behind those statistics lies more than simply a virgin market waiting to be tapped. Myanmar has been run by generals for decades, leaving not only pent-up demand for connectivity, but also a complex web of interests and a unique ecosystem of technological make-do. All of which will require careful navigation by would-be investors. REUTERS/Soe Zeya Tun (MYANMAR - Tags: BUSINESS TELECOMS SOCIETY)
