    "Many American male babies are circumcised by medical procedure shortly after birth. However, Orthodox Judaism prescribes circumcision as a religious ritual, to be performed according to strict Talmudic laws. According to those laws, the man who circumcises the infant, the mohel, must suck the infant's bleeding penis with his mouth."

    People look at a Maaz Al Shami (Damascene goat), where the title of "Most Beautiful Goat" will be awarded at the Mazayen al-Maaz competition in Amman July 22, 2011. This is the first goat competition held in Jordan.

    Although i myself do find this one particularly attractive

    An injured woman is helped by a man at the scene of a powerful explosion that rocked central Oslo July 22. A huge explosion damaged government buildings in central Oslo on Friday including Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg's office, injuring several people, a Reuters witness said. The blast blew out most windows on the 17-story building housing Stoltenberg's office, as well as nearby ministries including the oil ministry, which was on fire.

    As seen from a satellite in this image taken from Google maps, the name Hamad is clearly seen from space.



    You need about 2 miles of sand to carve your name big enough and a crew of hired hands to dig. But a billionaire sheikh from Abu Dhabi, Hamad bin Hamdan al Nahyan, has done just that.

    A Manhattan-sized chunk of ice that broke off a glacier in Greenland nearly a year ago is drifting toward the coast of Newfoundland, Canada — providing a stunning sight to scientists and curiosity-seekers but also posing a potential threat to ships.

    Inside Dadaab refugee settlement

    Dadaab camp, located in Kenya near the Somali border, was built in the 1990s to house 90,000 people fleeing civil war in Somalia. Now, the worst drought in the Horn of Africa for 60 years has led to the camp becoming home to an estimated 440,000 people

    Isaac Mohammed, 50, comes from Buale, in lower Juba. He used to be a farmer and a cattle herder, before the drought destroyed his business. He has two wives and nine children. One, three-year-old Mohammed Issa Mohammed, is severely malnourished and is seen here being fed by Isaac at Ifo camp

    Deaf-blind Ines Garcia (in red) showers with the help of her caregiver Nicolas Martin, before heading to the swimming pool in Santa Angela de la Cruz centre in Salteras, near Seville June 3, 2011. Ines, 23, is blind and has only residual hearing. Her only way to communicate with the outside world is through touch, which she learns with the help of staff from the Santa Angela de la Cruz center. The center is the only specialized home in Spain for deaf and blind adults - of which there are more than 6,000 in the country -- and it has opened its doors in the middle of one of the country's worst economic crises, providing day care for some clients, and a residence for others.
