Athletics is all about putting bodies in motion and the Olympians at Pyeongchang don’t disappoint.
Figure skaters spin around the ice like a top on a table. Bobsledders and lugers slide down the track in a riot of color. Ski jumpers leap into mid-air.If you blink, you just may miss them.

French filmmaking legend Agnes Varda didn’t attend Monday’s Oscars luncheon for nominees, so her co-director for “Faces Places” @JR made sure she was in the class photo: he brought a cardboard cutout of Varda holding a cat that he displayed on the red carpet and on the risers with the rest of the assembled nominees.
Agnes Varda recently spoke to us about being the oldest person ever and first woman to receive an honorary Oscar and a competitive nomination in the same season: http://apne.ws/l6zchAk

A super blue blood moon is seen setting behind the Hollywood hills in Los Angeles on Wednesday, Jan. 31, 2018. The moon is putting on a rare cosmic show. It’s the first time in 35 years a blue moon has synced up with a supermoon and a total lunar eclipse. NASA is calling it a lunar trifecta: the first super blue blood moon since 1982. That combination won’t happen again until 2037. #APPhoto @richardvogel

A horse stands next to bonfires during the ritual in honor of Saint Anthony the Abbot, the patron saint of animals, in San Bartolome de Pinares, Spain, Jan. 16, 2018. #APPhoto @francisco_seco

On the eve of Saint Anthony’s Day, dozens ride their horses through the narrow cobblestone streets of the small village of San Bartolome during the “Luminarias,” a tradition that dates back 500 years and is meant to purify the animals with the smoke of the bonfires and protect them for the year to come. Animal rights groups have complained about the practice, but locals say the horses don’t suffer.

A church and remains of an ancient village which are usually covered by water are seen inside the reservoir of Sau, in Vilanova de Sau, Catalonia, Spain, Jan. 11, 2018. One reservoir built in the early 1960s, submerging a village called San Roman de Sau and its 11th century romanesque church, is so low on water that the ruins of buildings which are usually under water are now uncovered. #APPhoto @emilio_morenatti

The scope of destruction in the neighborhood is comparable to some of the worst urban battles of World War II, and the cost of rebuilding is nearly incalculable.
The U.N. estimates around 40,000 homes will need to be rebuilt or restored in Mosul, which faces the longest path to rebuilding of all the Iraqi cities freed from Islamic State fighters.
