Skate Brothers, the antivirus for gangs

The bike rider makes a silhouette in the air before landing on the ground and undertaking a few complicated acrobatics. You can clearly see the satisfaction on his face. He is one of many young people who, in a troubled area of Honduras, have swapped misdemeanors for sports thanks to the Skate Brothers.

 “I do these tricks on bikes, but I am also a skater. I was on the wrong track for six years; I was looking for an adrenaline rush on the streets and found one here that doesn’t put my life at risk. Here we are one big, happy family,” says Gendrik Torres, 19, before jumping his bike onto a multipurpose track that many others are enjoying.

15岁终生洗肾 和生命赛跑的阿甘老师

十五岁被宣告终生洗肾,还有作梦的权利?徐凡甘带着数百个针头扎进皮肤的印记,投入偏乡教育,当黑暗里的星星。

下午四点,台南新山国小一年级教室里,是两种风景。一边右手握着铅笔、左手压著作业簿,眼睛却不时殷切看往操场;另一边在五颜六色的巧拼上,用绘本和积木架一座堡垒。写作业的,总是被玩玩具的那一方或是操场上活动吸引。

但坐在教室最前方的徐凡甘,只消抬起头,一个眼神,两边自动回归该有的秩序。

全球身价最高名模被炒后成农民养鸡种菜

《纽约时报》记者今年春天拜访伊莎贝拉,目睹她亲力亲为,用手一次次抓起干虫饲料喂养火鸡,身后还跟着100来只农场的走地鸡。(纽约时报)

伊莎贝拉·罗西里尼(Isabella Rossellini)从出生起就引人注目:星二代、记者、作家、电影明星、全球身价最高的奢侈品牌代言人、红到发紫的名模……总之就是一位人人艳羡的天之骄女。

顶着“瑞典国宝级女星英格烈·褒曼(Ingrid Bergman)及意大利名导演罗拔图·罗西里尼的女儿”的强大光环,伊莎贝拉的星路一度走得很顺遂。在1980年代最当红的时候,她登上50多个国家的500多本时尚杂志的封面。

伊莎贝拉在当模特与代言人之余,也在1979年起向电影界发展,并在1986年主演轰动一时的悬疑电影《蓝丝绒》(Blue Velvet),将有被性虐倾向的歌手角色演得丝丝入扣,还和该片的导演大卫·林区(David Lynch)坠入爱河(谈了六年恋爱),风头一时无两。

过惯了被全世界镁光灯追逐的生活,一切却在她的中年戛然而止。1992年,当时已经担任奢侈品牌兰蔻(Lancome)代言人长达14年的伊莎贝拉被告知,她被解雇了。

A Woman Dedicated to Saving Lives Loses Hers in Gaza Violence

She had become a fixture at the weekly protests along the fence dividing the Gaza Strip from Israel, a young woman in a white paramedic’s uniform rushing into harm’s way to help treat the wounded.

As a volunteer emergency medical worker, she said she wanted to prove that women had a role to play in the conservative Palestinian society of Gaza.

“Being a medic is not only a job for a man,” Razan al-Najjar, 20, said in an interview at a Gaza protest camp last month. “It’s for women, too.”

An hour before dusk on Friday, the 10th week of the Palestinian protest campaign, she ran forward to aid a demonstrator for the last time.
