By day, stunning Laura Butler teaches city kids psychology and dance. But once school’s over, Laura dumps her marking pen and embarks on her other career – as a top model. Plucked from obscurity in 2008, the 26-year-old is now one of the faces of full-figure lingerie firm Curvy Kate after winning their first ever ‘Star In A Bra’ competition. And she’s positively basque-ing in the glory.

A Chinese boy left home alone had to be rescued by firefighters after climbing out of the window and getting stuck on guttering in Lanzhou, capital of northwest China's Gansu Province. The boy had been left home alone while his mother went out to visit friends. At some point he climbed out of the window of their third floor flat and slipped. Luckily, however, his feet landed on a rain gutter and he was able to cling on for 30 minutes until firefighters, who had been alerted by passers-by, arrived. They had to break down the locked door to the flat before pulling the young boy back to safety.

Roughly 300 kilometers (200 miles) east-southeast of Tehran lies Iran’s Dasht-e Kavir, or Great Salt Desert. To the untrained eye, Dasht-e Kavir looks like a place that has been bone-dry since the dawn of time. But to the well-trained eyes of a geologist, this desert tells a tale of wetter times. Tens of millions of years ago, a salt-rich ocean likely occupied this region, surrounding a microcontinent in what is now central Iran.

As sea ice nears its maximum, it often begins to form in Canada’s Gulf of St. Lawrence. That's likely what was happening when the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Aqua satellite acquired this natural-color image on February 11, 2013.
