"The last sign said that we were crazy people – it was not correct. We are not marked by this ugly name now. I feel equal, I am no longer ashamed by the name of the institution.” Darko lived in the “Home for the Insane” until its name and mission were changed to provide support for beneficiaries living independently in apartments. Now it is called 'Centre for People Like Us’. Darko has lived in psychiatric institutions since the age of 11. Soon, with the support of ‘Centre for People Like Us’ he will move into his own home. He will still receive support, but will live independently.
Rehabilitation cannot take place behind the high walls of an institution. In four years, 172 out of 200 people have moved from ‘Home for the Insane’ in Osijek, Croatia, into apartments. Staff have trained to serve as assistants in the community. For many beneficiaries it is the first time they’ve experienced true freedom. This facility in Osijek is the only one out of 26 in the country to implement the UN convention to deinstitutionalize.

Central Park

Photo by @shonephoto (Robbie Shone) - Mountain regions respond sensitively to climate change. Taking advantage of Alpine caves, a team of scientists led by Swiss Paleoclimatologist Dr. Marc Luetscher from the Swiss Institute for Speleology and Karst Studies (SISKA), is working to understand how permafrost has evolved through time. Ice caves form through a combination of snow intrusion and/or congelation of water infiltrating a karst system. Often up to several centuries old, the climate record of this ice remains largely under-studied. Today we are also able to tell if a cave was an ice cave in the past. This is achieved by looking for cryogenic cave calcites. These form when water enters a cave, and freezes and turns to ice. In this process, the water becomes progressively enriched in ions to the point that it becomes super-saturated and precipitates calcite.

Pictured here and in freezing cold temperatures, an explorer is dwarfed by a giant ice formation inside the Halle der Circe in Eiskogelhöhle, Austria. Ice caves like these are common in the Austrian Alps but are seriously under stress due to climate change.

“Taking advantage of the favorable weather to take a flight over thousands of reindeers on their move,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Geoffrey Reynaud, “it was a wonderful moment.”

“You have made a beautiful photo of a simple sentence: Thousands of reindeers on their move. I love that you shot this scene from above, revealing just how many reindeers there are. Because what an epic moment to witness Geoffrey — I can only imagine how amazing this experience must have been, not just visually as a photographer, but also aurally, with the sounds of thousands of reindeers thundering together in one direction. Well done.” — @natgeoyourshot Producer David Y. Lee (@davidylee)
