"Twice Betrayed: Military Sexual Trauma"
Tens of thousands of men and women reported being sexually assaulted while serving in the U.S. military in the past 10 years. More alarming, tens of thousands of more cases go unreported. According to a Department of Defense survey, there were 26,000 sexual assaults in the military in 2012 but only 11% of them were reported. One in four female soldiers have been sexually assaulted. For most, the assault is only the beginning of the traumatic experience. Victims who report the incidents are often retaliated against and discharged on false claims that they have mental disorders. The military has discharged more than 30, 000 troops for personality disorders since 2001. Offenders are rarely punished and most are allowed to stay in the armed forces.

In a conflict dragging on into its twentieth violent month, today was an especially deadly day in Syria, where rebels are fighting the government of Bashar al-Assad. A pair of car bombs exploded, one in Hama and one in Damascus, and both sides claimed wildly different casualty totals. Intense shelling of rebel positions served as counterpoint. But even an especially deadly day here makes it just one of many in the conflict that has claimed as many as 35,000 victims since it began with street protests on March 15, 2011. Over a quarter of a million refugees have fled to Syria’s neighbors, and the UN puts the number of internally displaced at over a million. Gathered here are images from the last month in the Mediterranean country of 22 million. — Lane Turner (37 photos total - The Big Picture - Boston.com)
Belgium’s language border was established in 1963 with the hope of putting an end to the squabbles between the kingdom’s French-speaking and Dutch-speaking communities. Over the years, the line has been reinforced from the Flemish side with political, cultural, and economic pressure. Tensions between the two communities are rare among border residents, but they remain tense between opposing politicians. Starting in December 2011, the political dispute left Belgium without a government for 541 days.
The partition of Belgium is an imaginary line, running across fertile pastures, following rivers and occasionally cutting through the middle of a home. At the same time, identity and language in Belgium are complex, and often more polarized than relations between French and Dutch may seem. Within a few years, the language partition may be Europe’s newest national border, splitting the Republic of Flanders off from the Kingdom of Belgium.
For the 50th anniversary of the establishment of the border, in 2013, Tomas van Houtryve walked its entire length by foot. He observed the moods and the traditions of Belgium’s two halves in homes and villages along the way.

Salió mi primer documental!
[here is a version with english subtitles]
Lila tenía 25 años cuando la Alianza Argentina Anticomunista acribilló al ‘Gringo’, el jefe de su unidad de combate en la guerrilla Montoneros. Hoy, 39 años después, ella decide buscar a ‘María’, la novia del gringo, de quien no sabe ni siquiera el nombre verdadero, a pesar de que durante los años de lucha habían fingido ser hermanas.
¿Cómo hablar de una época en la que no se podía hablar? ¿Cómo reconocer a compañeros que uno sólo conocía en la clandestinidad? En este documental del fotoperiodista Sam Verhaert, dos personas que nunca habían pensado en volver a encontrarse, buscan las respuestas.
'Decíamos que éramos hermanas' es una producción para el Diplomado en Fotonarrativa y Nuevos Medios (Fundación Pedro Meyer / World Press Photo). Creative Commons - Sam Verhaert - 2013
