    The night before the burial of her husband's body, Katherine Cathey refused to leave the casket, asking to sleep next to his body for the last time. The Marines made a bed for her, tucking in the sheets below the flag. Before she fell asleep, she opened her laptop computer and played songs that reminded her of "Cat," and one of the Marines asked if she wanted them to continue standing watch as she slept. "I think it would be kind of nice if you kept doing it," she said. "I think that's what he would have wanted."

    Photo: India-Pakistan Border From Space

    [​IMG]

    See the orange line? This is what the border between Pakistan and India, floodlit for surveillance purposes, looks like at night, from space.

    The bundles of light in the photo, which was taken from north to south, are the following cities: Delhi (top center), Srinagar (left), Lahore (center, just below the border line), and Islamabad (bottom center.)

    The picture, taken by the International Space Station’s Expedition 28 crew, was shot on Aug. 21 and recently released.

    Danger, Kids Crossing: Ropey Route To School .
    5:08pm UK, Friday January 20, 2012


    Children in Indonesia have been filmed risking their lives by crossing a collapsed suspension bridge to get to school.

    Three bridges in the district of Lebak have given way recently due to flooding.
    When the 162m-long bridge that connected Ciwaru village to Sibagi village broke, school children were left with few alternatives for getting to lessons on time.
    Muhammad Ikhwan, a 10-year-old student, said he felt forced to choose crossing the collapsed bridge rather than walking 5km.
    "It's far if we don't use the bridge. Yes, it's about 5km to walk," he said.
    The bridge was built in 2004 and is the only access that connects the two villages over the Ciberang river.
    Residents have called for more action from the local government to repair the crossing.
    Five days on since floods damaged the suspension bridge, there has been little improvement.
    "We hope the government takes immediate action on this matter as this bridge is used for daily activities, especially school children as Ciwaru villages is far and this bridge is the nearest connection," Epi Suhaepi, a head of neighbouring village of Pasir Tanjung said.
    He said that some parents were worried about the conditions and safety of their children.
