Magical photographs show Sydney blanketed in fog

Sydneysiders love to complain about the weather, but in recent weeks they have had good reason. The city has been smashed apart by wild storms, hectic winds and dangerous surf.

But on Tuesday morning, the weather gods gave something back to a city waving a white flag. In a photographer's delight, Sydney was covered in fog making for the perfect snap

The statement harbour became a picture of soft colour and natural light, while Sydneysiders breathed a sigh of relief as they slipped into the first warm day in weeks

Sydney blanketed by a thick layer of fog this morning. This magic shot taken by @johngrainger11 for @dailytelegraphpic.twitter.com/NY2T7jYRa5

If you looked closely at Guy Kawasaki's wrist at the CeBIT technology conference in Sydney on Tuesday, he was wearing a very nice watch. But it definitely wasn't an Apple Watch.

The former chief evangelist for Apple — a title that meant Kawasaki had to "maintain and rejuvenate the Macintosh cult", in his words — and chief evangelist for Australian graphic design website, Canva, told the media he was wearing a Breitling watch. "This is a real man's watch, not an Apple," he said

While he added he "might love the Apple Watch someday," that day is not today.

Video of police beating exposes Israel's rift with its Ethiopian Jews

Damas Pakada, 21, immigrated to Israel from Ethiopia seven years ago. He serves as a solider in the Israeli Defense Force, helping to provide for his siblings. A week ago on Sunday, he was riding his bike on his way home in the city of Holon. Little did he know he would be thrust into the center of an Israeli schism over racism and police brutality.

As Pakada reached a street that was blocked by police, he says he asked a policeman what the matter was. From that moment on things quickly turned nasty. “He told me: ‘Turn around or I don’t know what will I do to you,’ and immediately started pushing me,” Pakada told Ynet, an Israeli news site. “I told him not to use force and in response he pushed me from the bikes and started hitting me.” Read more...

From kitschy trinkets to carved tusks, thousands of objects — possibly worth more than $15 million a year — are being sold on Craigslist in the United States, according to a report.

From March 16 to 20, researchers with the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) and the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) combed through Craigslist postings in 28 geographic areas across the country

Just in that five-day period, the authors of the new report flagged 456 ivory products, 84 suspected ivory products and 75 related wildlife products (such as elephant skin) for sale, for a combined list price of at least $1.4 million. Read more...

GITEGA PROVINCE, Burundi, 20 April 2015 – Isidonie Niyonzima and her husband Oscar own a small plot of land in Itaba commune in central Burundi, where they farm staple crops like cassava and potatoes.

SHEIKHUPURA, Punjab province, Pakistan, 17 April 2015 – As the vaccinator fills the syringe from a vial of measles vaccine, Nishat, 30, watches carefully while she holds her 2-year-old son. She knows the needle will hurt, but she also knows the benefit that comes with the pain.

In Burundi, a one-stop shop for children living on the street

NGOZI, Burundi, 16 April 2015 – Located in the province with some of the country’s highest child malnutrition and child mortality rates, Ngozi, Burundi’s third largest city, also has a high number of children living on the street: more than 400 were recorded in 2010, and the current number is likely much higher.

Vaccination is the first line of defence against vaccine-preventable diseases, and every time I vaccinate a child, it feels as if I have saved a life.”

In Sierra Leone, hopes of saving the school year
