Pakistani children and female protestors sleep in front of the parliament building, during weeklong protests from the eastern city of Lahore to the gates of parliament calling for Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's ouster over alleged voting fraud, in Islamabad, Pakistan, Friday, Aug. 22, 2014. They swarmed into the capital in their thousands, protesters calling for the prime minister's resignation and the dissolution of parliament. The week-long protests in the capital and around the parliament building have been loud and boisterous but peaceful. But despite their color, there is the other side to the demonstrations _ the increased demand for food, water and toilets to accommodate the thousands of people who turned out to support cricketer-turned-politician Imran Khan and popular cleric Tahir-ul-Qadri.

In this Friday, Aug. 8, 2014 photo, farmer Adiya, right, stands in front of a pond of waste water near a state-of-the-art power plant that turns millions of tons of coal every year into methane in northern China's Inner Mongolia province. As a boy growing up there, Adiya could ride his horse through waist-high grass for miles without meeting another person. Now, the 32-year-old says he stays indoors some mornings because of the industrial stench. Since the plant started running in December, it has obscured the blue skies above Adiya’s home with smoke while black pools of wastewater have turned up in the grasslands. “I only wish they could build this factory in Beijing,” said Adiya, who uses only one name, as is Mongolian custom.
