Peer 1 is a drug and alcohol rehabilitation programme for men, many having spent years in and out of prison, in Denver, Colorado. The men have often tried and failed over and over to turn their life around. With histories of abuse as children and living on the streets, they come to Peer 1 hoping to turn away from addiction and crime, to rebuild their lives and learn how to integrate into society. Treatment includes family group therapy, meditation and trust-building exercises. REUTERS/Rick WilkingPICTURE 15 OF 26 FOR WIDER IMAGE STORY "PEER 1: PRISON, DEATH OR RECOVERY".

Fatma Badredine, 94, a berber woman from the Chaouia region, who has facial tattoos, sits inside her house in Arris at the Aures Mountain near the eastern city of Batna, Algeria October 8, 2015. Among the Chaouia people of the Aures mountains, a woman's beauty used to be judged by her tattoos. Traditionally, the more a woman was tattooed the higher she was prized by local men. Badredine was tattooed aged 13 years old by a nomadic woman from the Sahara region. "I had to endure excruciating pain just to look pretty,� Badredine said. "I wanted to have the tattoo removed but my doctor advised against it, my age doesn’t allow it.� Some believers have told these Muslim women that by allowing the tattoos they committed a sin according to Islam. To make amends, those who regret having the tattoos give away their treasured silver jewellery to the most deprived women they know. Even so, one woman said being tattooed brought her luck and allowed her to have many children, saving her marriage in the process.

The Ocean Sunset hunts sharks as well as other fish for their meat and fins. After the fishermen catch them, dogfish sharks are sent to a processing plant, the fins are removed and the body is skinned. The bellies are exported to Germany to be smoked for pub food, and the fins are sent to Asia, where they are used in shark fin soup - a delicacy in Chinese culture. Animal rights advocates criticise the shark fin harvest but others say that eating shark fins is an old cultural tradition.

Granma, reporting on a recent meeting of top level party, government and other officials, said Cubans would still be prohibited from owning more than one home.
