Welcome to the world of military-style boot camps designed to wean young people off their addiction to being online. There are as many as 250 such camps in China alone. A look inside: http://bit.ly/1pTkFkK

Kawashima Kotori 川島小鳥 (b.1980, Japan) - Mirai-chan in Paris
Kotori Kawashima 川島小鳥 is a Tokyo born photographer, graduated from Waseda university. He started Mirai-chan 未来ちゃん photo series after meeting his friend’s child: “I was amazed by this creature. I wanted to take pictures of her after spending time with her during one year… I think the children are free, it is very interesting to listen to what they say, not boring to watch them, and they are so energetic. Everyone have a childish side, so I love to find it in my friends and people I meet for work.” (cf. Kitsuné)
Originally published in a small print run by a Tokyo gallery, Mirai-chan has been republished and reportedly was one of the best-selling photobooks in Japan, being selected the number one “Book of the Year 2011” by the Japanese magazine Da Vinci.

That was super nice of them.
And now I’m mad that nobody told us we were given cows. Cause that’s really f*cking nice and nobody mentioned it at all.
American media tends to disregard that anyone donates to the US. And then Amurricans complain about money going abroad because “nobody helped the US in our disasters.”
Also, do you know how much a cow costs? O.O
It isn’t just a matter of how much a cow costs, its a matter of considering that Masai life is based around their cattle. Its their wealth, their food, and a significant part of their religion. Here’s a quote from Wikipedia:
“Traditional Maasai lifestyle centres around their cattle which constitute their primary source of food. The measure of a man’s wealth is in terms of cattle and children. A herd of 50 cattle is respectable, and the more children the better. A man who has plenty of one but not the other is considered to be poor. A Maasai religious belief relates that God gave them all the cattle on earth, leading to the belief that rustling cattle from other tribes is a matter of taking back what is rightfully theirs, a practice that has become much less common.”
So its not just “they gave us 14 cows”, its that they gave us something that is very important and significant to them, it is more than just a kind gesture that definitely deserves to be known and its a genuine shame that more people don’t know about it.
Photographer Clark Little started out as a professional surfer who loved to take photos on the side, but after his wife framed one of his photos on a whim, he was inspired to pick up the hobby full time!
Clark has made a name for himself in the surf photography community for diving head first into enormous waves that others would avoid at all costs.
