"Gizmo Joe surrounded by his ongoing projects in the off-the-grid community of Slab City, CA"
Gizmo Joe explains, "A lot of times I'll need a component for an idea I'm working on and it's part of something else. That's why I got so many leftovers laying around. You can't make an omelet without having a few eggshells."

"Bhaktapur's Back Streets"
Although Bhaktapur, Nepal, has a booming tourist trade, most of the residents are poor, eking out their living as laborers or farmers, and residing in dilapidated Newari brick homes. This kind of poverty is typical of most Hindus living in Nepal and northern India.

"Deadliest Catch"
In 30-foot seas and 60 mile-per-hour winds, it is easy to see why the United States Department of Labor named crab fishing on the Bering Sea the most dangerous job in America.

"Deadliest Catch"
For a "greenhorn" deck hand, the 18-hour shifts, high seas, freezing conditions and intense labor can be debilitating and traumatic. Rain or shine, the schedule does not abate for weather. In spite of the high pay, 90% of greenhorn do not return after their first outing.

"Deadliest Catch"
Watch your feet! One of the many dangers on board includes getting pulled overboard by a coiled line as a one-ton pot is being tossed overboard. Many sailors have lost their lives that way. The knife on this fisherman's waist is mandatory to cut the line in such an instance.

"Deadliest Catch"
Frozen spray on deck accounts for flesh and head wounds, as well as broken bones. These ships have no keel to stabilize the ship in high seas. Consequently, the boat will throw in all directions, making trips across the deck a constant liability.

"Deadliest Catch"
A crew of eight rotate their shift to man the deck for 24 hours of fishing per day until the holds are filled, which can take over ten days. The ship returns to port to unload for 24 to 48 hours and head back out. The men work 18 hours per day, which leaves six hours for food, bathroom duties and sleep. They receive a two-week break every three months.

"Chernobyl's children—a living testimony to the enduring legacy left by Chernobyl"
Twenty-five years after the Chernobyl disaster, the international community has largely forgotten about those who are still suffering in its aftermath. The Polyclinic 2, which is located about 40 miles east of Chernobyl, monitors resi- dents on a regular basis to learn about the after effects of radiation. The incidence of disease among children has increased by a factor of three since 1986.
