During World War II the Army Corps of Engineers needed to hide the Lockheed Burbank Aircraft Plant to protect it from being a target for a Japanese air attack. They covered it with camouflage netting and to make it look like a rural housing subdivision from the air.
These photos tell the story of ingenuity during trying times.

Some tried bombs to neutralise the Fuhrer, others tried bullets. All failed. Now it has come to light that British spies looked at an even more audacious way of derailing the man behind the German war machine - by giving him female sex hormones.

Staff Sgt. Christopher Fessenden is on duty in Afghanistan now after tours with the Army in Iraq. He has traveled with standard-issue equipment -- weapons, helmet, uniform, boots and so forth -- plus a radio-controlled model truck his brother Ernie sent.
The truck is not a toy to him. He says it just saved six soldiers' lives.

"Diary is a highly personal and experimental film that expresses the subjective experience of my work, and was made as an attempt to locate myself after ten years of reporting. It's a kaleidoscope of images that link our western reality to the seemingly distant worlds we see in the media." - Tim Hetherington, British photojournalist and Academy Award-nominated documentary filmmaker, who was killed on April 20, 2011 in Libya.

Skateistan: To Live And Skate Kabul is a beautifully shot film that follows the lives of a group of young skateboarders in Afghanistan. Operating against the backdrop of war and bleak prospects, the Skateistan charity project is the world's first co-educational skateboarding school, where a team of international volunteers work with girls and boys between the ages of 5 and 17, an age group largely untouched by other aid programmes.

The US military has for years been working on environmentally-friendly projects, from cleaning lead from ranges, to powering bases with solar power.
Now the Navy is testing biofuel in the F/A-18.
Great. An army of tree-huggers.

We want to send you hundreds of feet under the ocean, arm you with nuclear and non-nuke weapons, put you at great risk of harm, and keep you underwater for weeks at a time. But there is a catch...

Zachary Boyd, 19, was asleep when enemy fighters attacked his base in the Korengal Valley in Kunar province.
He had enough time to put on is helmet and body armour but had to dispense with his uniform before joining his comrades in manning their bunker.
