    In this Aug. 29, 2014, photo, a man puts a decorative edge on a clay flower pot in Twante township, southwest of Yangon, Myanmar. For generations, the town has been known for its thriving pottery industry. But as Myanmar's economy has grown since opening it's doors to the outside world in 2011, the younger generation has been reluctant to learn the art of pottery. This, and the cost of transporting the bulky and fragile products, have turned it into an unstable, dying industry.

  • APTOPIX Britain Scotland
    A Saltire with Yes printed on it flys in Dunbar, Scotland, Tuesday, Sept. 16, 2014. The two sides in Scotland's independence debate are scrambling to convert undecided voters, with just two days to go until a referendum on separation. Anti-independence campaigners are pushing home their message that a "No" vote doesn't mean the status quo. The three main British political parties are promising Scotland greater powers, including tax-raising authority, if it remains part of the United Kingdom. The Yes campaign says the promises are vague and reveal the No side's desperation, with polls suggesting the outcome will be close. Scottish Deputy First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said "the only way to guarantee the real powers we need in Scotland is to vote Yes."
