An instructor (C) teaches at a masonry workshop at the Larsen & Toubro (L&T) construction skills training institute in Panvel, in the western Indian state of Maharashtra November 18, 2014. India has too few skilled labourers thanks to decades of neglect in training and it desperately needs electricians, bricklayers and plumbers. Larsen & Toubro (L&T), the country's biggest construction company, says it could face a labour shortage next year, just when it plans to ramp up investment after two years of slow economic growth. It has gone out to rural areas to find recruits and bring them to sprawling training centres from which up to 20,000 students graduate a year, many of them joining L&T.

A Belgian stonemason manually carves a tombstone to refresh the soldier's name and the emblem of his army battalion at the Ploegsteert Memorial near the city of Ypres March 13, 2014. Monuments and cemeteries in Flanders Fields in Belgium and in northern France, regions where many WWI battles took place, are being refurbished to prepare for an massive influx of tourists ahead of the centenary of the Great War. Workers from the Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC) who maintain the cemeteries are repairing thousands of headstones which belong to soldiers who lost their lives in the conflict.

Stonemason Ben Myall carves a block on a site in London January 22, 2014. British unemployment plunged to within a whisker of the Bank of England's level for considering an increase in interest rates, data showed on Wednesday, but the central bank stressed it would be in no rush to act. The unemployment rate dropped to 7.1 percent in the three months to November, a fraction above the 7 percent level which the bank has said is its threshold for thinking about raising interest rates from their current all-time low of 0.5 percent.

Austrian bereavement company Aspetosis is working with stonemasons to test technology that lets QR codes get sandblasted onto gravestones directly at cemeteries at a fraction of the cost of traditional methods of chiseling text or images onto memorials.

Sculptors work at an outdoor workshop in the town of Dangcheng in Quyang county, 240 km (150 miles) southwest of Beijing December 7, 2011. Dangcheng applied the traditional stone-carving skills of this rocky party of Hebei province to boom as an exporter of ornate statues, busts, fountains and friezes to Europe and north America. Now this corner of northern China is struggling with the international slump and financial turmoil in formerly big markets, especially Italy and other euro zone countries.

Joe Alonso, (L) head stone mason, and Andy Uhl, a stone carver at the Washington National Cathedral, oversee the removal of damaged upper portions of the southeast grand pinnacle, that weigh two tons, from the central tower of the Washington National Cathedral during a foggy morning in Washington, October 13, 2011. The Cathedral's central tower pinnacles were damaged by the magnitude 5.8 earthquake that struck the U.S. east coast on August 23. The damaged portions of the pinnacles are being removed to make the pinnacles and central tower stable until the stonework can be repaired and are then put back in place.
