Kim Jong-un provides field guidance to Farm No. 1116 under KPA Unit 810
Kim Jong-un’s predecessor and late father Kim Jong-il, the former supreme leader of North Korea, was a man of diverse talents. A prolific author, film buff, and prodigious golfer, Kim Jong-il could even control the weather with his mood. And his son apparently inherited this genius. As North Korea ratchets up anxiety over nuclear proliferation, Kim Jong-un can still find the time to offer farming advice to his people, as seen in this photo released by North Korea’s Korean Central News Agency in Pyongyang.

Matt Stutzman competes at the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games
In addition to all the amazement and admiration I feel when I look at this photo, there is also the stinging question: "Why on earth haven't I been watching the 2016 Paralympic Games?"

A city worker sprays chemicals in an effort to control the spread of the Zika virus
In this photo, an exterminator is spraying chemicals to kill mosquitos at a Bangkok school. I know what you're thinking, "Let's make sure kids aren't allowed back into the school for, oh, about 10 months or so." Or if they are allowed back in, they must take this class: "Avoiding Dangerous Chemicals 101."

Model feebee poses as part of art installation "Narcissism : Dazzle room" by artist Shigeki Matsuyama
The annual ritual that is New York's Fashion week often makes the clothes horses in our lives think about how they'll be standing out. But this photo of a woman posed in Japanese painter Shigeki Matsuyama's art installation 'Narcissism: Dazzle room' takes the idea of blending in to new places. The installation is part of the "rooms 33" fashion and design trade show taking place at Yoyogi National Stadium in Tokyo, Japan. And yes, there's a female model in this picture. Relax your focus and look closely.
