Cat skin and blood supply. Whiskers, unlike normal hair, are touch receptors, each containing a sensory organ called a proprioceptor. Scientists injected blood vessels with a red dye called carmine dye (here appearing black) in order to visualise the capillaries in the tissue, a newly developed technique at the time. The picture is a composite made up of 44 individual images which were stitched together. Here, fine hairs (yellow), thicker whisker (yellow) and blood vessels (black) are all visible.

Central African Republic by Pierre Terdjman – The Seleka militia took over in March 2013, and perpetrated massive violations of human rights – massacres, rape, torture and executions, and burning villages to the ground. Nearly one fifth of the population has had to flee and they are now living in appalling conditions in the bush and IDP camps. In September, the predominantly Christian anti- Balaka militia embarked on a wave of reprisals against the Muslims with massacres, summary executions and looting; the sides had changed, but the violence continued. Terrified Muslims fled north-west, to towns such as Bossangoa and Bouca which are traditionally Muslim. Of the 100 000 Muslims that lived in Bangui, only one thousand are left; the others have fled across the border. Today it seems unlikely that any change will occur. The rift may very well be permanent. Here: A wounded man in the community hospital. (Photo by Pierre Terdjman/Paris Match)

Some time ago, The Union of Architects of Russia and Union of Philanthropy Organizations of Russia have announced a competition called “The Image of an Orthodox Church in a Modern Architectural Solution”. The competition will conclude with the selection of the 10 best architectural projects, which wil be put on display at the Cathedral of Christ the Savior in Moscow, RIA Novosti reports.
“First of all the projects should be focused not on stylizing cathedral architecture of past eras but rather on expressing in the image of the cathedral traditional features alongside modern aesthetics,” the organizers note.
The jury and expert council include representatives of the architecture community and the Russian Orthodox Church as well as historians of church architecture.

NASA astronomers have for the first time captured a unique elephant picture on mars using the HiRISE camera from NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. Astronomers claim that this elephant face is created by lava. They found that lava flow in Elysium Planitia, the youngest flood-lava province on mars, could have created the unique face.
“Flood lavas cover extensive areas, and were once thought to be emplaced extremely rapidly, like a flood of water,” Msnbc quoted Alfred McEwen, planetary geologist at the University of Arizona, as saying.
Astronomers believe that the elephant face on mars provides a glimpse of the geological changes that shaped the Red Planet over the course of billions of years. The image gives a good example of the phenomena known as pareidolia which means we see things like animals’ faces that are not actually there.
