    More and more men are struggling with mental illness, which means more and more are struggling to talk about it.

    Though it doesn’t apply to all men, so many men avoid talking about what’s going on inside their minds out of fear of being judged or ignored – or told to ‘man up’.

    And so, to encourage men to speak out about their mental health and seek help, we spoke to 20 different men about mental illness. They told us what they live with, how it affects them and the one thing they wish others knew about men’s mental health – in hopes it’ll encourage more… Read the full story

    Domino’s Australia has just started selling cheesy chips and gravy – and we just have one question: Why is this not a UK thing?

    The pizza chain has just added the dish as a new side to its menu.

    It features chunky cut chips topped with a rich, traditional gravy, melted mozzarella cheese and fresh spring onion.

    It’s every Northerner’s dream.

    Rhinos are fighting for survival. Poachers are killing more than three every day to feed the demand for rhino horn in the Far East. All the while, the South African government is championing the consumptive use of rhinos and the legalisation of the trade in horn. But there is hope. This is the story of how Botswana is leading the recovery of rhinos amidst a global poaching crisis by rescuing animals from poaching hotspots in neighbouring countries and translocating them to the Okavango Delta.

The images presented are realized with instants taken from more than 30 different pictures realized at CheckPoint 300, and the purpose of the series is to represent the inhuman conditions in which these people are forced daily to get their right for a job. If these images are result of a creative composition, hence not real, what is real is the sense of oppression that they aim to represent.Influenced by the pursuit of the American Dream lifestyle in the Western World and contemporary practices such as leisure, consumption, media overstimulation, eternal youth, and the psychological sequels they generate in our everyday private life. The project seeks to evoke a mood of isolation, desperation, vanishing, and anxiety, through fragmented images, that exist both in a fictional way and a real one. Philosopher Byung-Chul Han says we live in an era of exhaustion and fatigue, caused by an incessant compulsion to perform. We have left behind the immunological era, and now experience the neuronal era characterized by neuropsychiatric diseases such as depression, attention deficit, hyperactivity disorder, burnout syndrome and bipolar disorder. My characters find themselves almost anonymous, melting in places, vanishing into them, constantly looking for any possibility of escape. They find themselves alone, desperate and exhausted. Constantly in an odd line between trying and feeling defeated.Omid, who doesn't know his age, stands for a portrait with his homemade skis in Aub Bala's village mosque. Aub Bala, 'High Water', is the farthest village up the Fuladi Valley in central Afghanistan's Bamiyan Province, so named because it is the closest to the source of the valley's water, which comes off the mountains in snow-melt and rain, deeper in the valley, beyond where the single road reaches. Skiing first came to Aub Bala in 2009, when two staff members of the Agha Khan Foundation visited the village while mapping Bamiyan's snowfields for the purpose of producing a guide book for skiers. Since then, boys in the village have built their own based on what they remember of the visitors' equipment.The series was a commission by Down Coru?a, an association that works with young people with Down Syndrome. They wanted me to take photos of the boys and girls in relation to the building where they were developing their capacities, an awarded architecture by a Galician architect: the architecture as the witness of their gradual progress. But, besides, they asked me to take pictures that could tell another story about Down Syndrome. We are used to think about them as limited people, about their discapacities, but we never consider that they can do a lot of things, specially things that everyone likes to do. I asked the people of the Association to tell me something they all love to do, and they said they are always listening to music and dancing. The series shows a group of young people having fun and dancing, like any other teenager.When people ask me why I?m photographing horses I usually respond: "Because I adore their beauty and magnificent grace!" But there is another reason as well. Horses can be hilarious and darn funny! It?s my greatest passion to tease out nearly human expressions of my horse models. It was really fun to work with such different horsy characters. The black PRE Allaus learned to shake on hand sign within 5 minutes before the photo session! Arabian stallion Hafid preferred to neigh proudly in studio first before he realized that 3 girls where absolutely euphoric when he shook his head. The most difficult part was to keep the horses straight to the camera. Most time they wanted to move their head to the side or downward. A good handling and horse goodies were highest priority. I focused on a great face and a harmonic choreography of the hairs.?? Corentin Fohlen/ Divergence. Lumane Casimir, Haiti. 28 octobre 2015. Le village de Lumane Casimir, anciennement Morne-a-Cabris. # L'ecole du villageChild Disability Swimming Championships at the Disability Swimming pool, Tehran Province, Iran  A portrait of a woman with freckles taken earlier in 2017. This image was taken in studio using two soft lights (softness altered in post production). This image was taken because I simply found the model to be beautiful. She caught my eye at an event and I had to bring her into the studio so I could capture every single freckle on her face.The most spectacular part of the historical Hungarian sports event, the 17th FINA world championship is the high diving when competitors jump from an extreme hight: women jump from 20meters, men from 27meters. In case of men it means a 3 second free fall, and it carries huge risks of possible injuries therefore competitors have to reach the water foot forward as during their speed can reach even 90 kms/hr. Every time jumpers are watched by light divers in the water so that they can provide assistance in case of trouble. This was the first time in the history of world championships when competitors didn't jump in natural water but in an artificially built pool. The pool at the foot of the 34-meter high, 10-ton tower was built in the Danube's river bed on a 870 square meter concrete platform whose diameter is 15 meters with a 6 meters depth.Generation Wealth is my 25-year visual history of our growing obsession with wealth. Weaving 25 years of work into a meta-narrative, I have tried to explore a consumer appetite unprecedented in human history. Keeping up with the Joneses has become Keeping Up with the Kardashians as the ?aspirational gap? between what we want and what we can afford has dramatically widened. My journey starts in Los Angeles and spreads across America and beyond, as I endeavor to document how we export the values of materialism, celebrity culture, and social status to every corner of the globe through photographs and interviews with students, single parents, and families overwhelmed by crushing debt, yet determined to purchase luxury houses, cars, and clothing. We visit homes and observe rituals of the international elite and the A-list celebrities from reality TV and social media, the same influencers who shape our desires and sense of self.Every Wednesday at Spurgeons Academy, a school in the middle of the indecipherable maze of Kibera's narrow streets and alleys, students take the chairs and benches out of a classroom and sweep the floor.  The school uniforms are switched to bright-coloured clothes. When teacher Mike Wamaya enters the classroom, the students get into position and place one hand on the concrete wall as though it were a ballet bar. Classical music plays out of a small portable speaker, and the class begins. The Ballet class is part of Annos Africa and One Fine Days charity activities in slum areas around Kenya. In Nairobi they work together with two schools in Kibera and one school in Mathare, another slum closer to the city centre. The dance is a way for the children to express themselves and it strengthens their confidence in life, and a belief that they can become something great.   Some of the children are now dancing several days a week in a studio called ???Dance center Kenya??? in a upper-class area of Nairobi and living in a boarding school, so thanks to their talent they have taken themselves away from the harsh conditions in the slum.

    It’s incredibly cold today, and very snowy. Which means you should wrap up warm – and if you have pets, you should definitely keep them inside.

    Though they may cry a little and whine to go out, it’s best to keep your fur babies nice and cosy indoors. Especially if you have a cat, as they are very susceptible to frostbite – which can affect the tips of the ears, the tail, and the feet (especially the toes).

    Of course, if you have a cat flap, this can be a little difficult if you’re unable to lock it. They may end up wanting to play in the snow after… Read the full story

    It’s not often you see the words drag queen and primary school together.

    Thankfully we live in a time where sex education as well as awareness for LGBT issues are more openly discussed.

    Which is why one primary school decided to invite a drag queen to read stories to the children as part of their World Book Day celebrations.

    Parsons Street Primary School in Bedminster, Bristol, spent the morning hearing kids’ tales read by a man in woman’s clothes and wig.

    The project was set up to teach tolerance and LGBTQ+ issues, an especially important topic given the intolerance and violence against the community.

    Clearly the children had no problem… Read the full story

    Dealing with a terminal illness may be one of the hardest things anyone can ever do.

    For friends and family of someone affected by it may want to commemorate their loved one.

    Marie Curie is hoping to do that with their Garden of Light, unveiled in London’s Paternoster Square to mark the launch of the charity’s Great Daffodil Appeal.

    Held every March, the Appeal calls on people to donate and wear one of the charity’s daffodil pins to help fund care for people living with any terminal illness.

    Interview with Stephanie Yeboah about Cherophobia - the fear of happiness
    (Picture: Stephanie Yeboah)

    Cherophobia is an irrational aversion to being happy.

    According to HealthLine, it’s not a condition that’s widely researched or defined, and currently, it’s not listed as a disorder. However, cherophobia is very real.

    Some medical experts classify cherophobia as a form of anxiety disorder. In the case of cherophobia, the anxiety is related to participation in activities that would be thought to make you happy.

    Someone who has cherophobia isn’t necessarily a sad person, but instead is one that avoids activities that could lead to happiness or joy – much like someone with social anxiety.

    A person with cherophobia may experience… Read the full story

    Do you really need those extra plastic forks for the Chinese takeaway you’re going to eat two metres from your cutlery drawer?

    No, you probably don’t. But because all those little extras are typically included in food delivery options just in case you need them, you don’t usually have a choice in getting a whole load of plastic to tip in the recycling bin.

    Just Eat wants to make that choice a little more conscious.

    The food delivery site has announced that from 1 April, they’ll be trialling a pre-ticked box on its app and website to encourage customers to opt out of extra single-use plastic items including plastic cutlery, straws, and… Read the full story

    I have this old friend who occasionally turns up at my door, totally out of the blue.

    I don’t see much of her any more but, when she is here, it’s like she has never been away.

    We met shortly after the birth of my eldest child. She came into my life and managed to get her feet firmly under the table.

    It was only after a year of cognitive behavioural therapy that she left.

    Knowing how to remove the pesky coloured powder from your face may be a good move before Holi kicks off (Picture: Anil Dayal/Hindustan Times via Getty Images)

    The Hindu festival of Holi is basically a huge contest to see who can turn their mates into the best rainbows.

    Throwing powder at anyone and everyone you meet is the aim of the game during this wild party, celebrating the triumph of good over evil.

    That powder can end up just about everywhere, making it hard to get clean again when the battle is over – so how is it done?

    Briana Fletcher, 23, was born with Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster-Hauser (MRKH) syndrome, which causes the reproductive system to be underdeveloped.

    This means she’s missing significant portions of her vagina – Briana has no uterus and is missing the upper two thirds of her vaginal canal.

    There were no external clues of what was going on inside Briana’s vagina, so she didn’t learn of her condition until puberty, when her period didn’t arrive.

    ‘That was the first clue,’ explained Briana. ‘The doctor attributed it to my low weight.

    The Italian artist and set designer’s Occular Sceneries series is inspired by her love of theatre and creative makeup.

    Not only does she paint the set around her eyes, she has 3D props including tiny paper chairs, playing cards, and various cardboard characters, all glued on.

    She tells Metro.co.uk how she started creating these magical looks.

    Devastating news over here at Doggo Towers.

    We’ve caught wind that some breeds of dog native to the UK are in serious danger of going extinct.

    The UK has 220 pedigree dog breeds, but the top six – Labrador, French Bulldog, Cocker Spaniel, Pug and English Springer Spaniel and Bulldog – account for more registrations between them than the remaining 214 breeds.

    In fact, the Labrador was named Britain’s favourite dog back in January, after a poll questioned more than 10,000 people. The Labrador. The bloody Labrador.

    We’re neglecting the other breeds so much that the Kennel Club has compiled a list of Read the full story

    Easter is coming, which means it’s time to stock up on the Easter eggs for the kids and start planning your Easter egg hunts.

    Oh, and if you get a few minutes, why not stop and look for an egg for yourself?

    There’s lots on offer beyond the standard Malteser and Creme Egg. If you’re a fan of Daim, you can now get a giant Easter egg completely made out of the stuff.

    Or if you’re not a sweets person, why not go for something savoury, like this Easter egg completely made out of cheese?

    However, if you are after chocolate – but you’re wanting something a bit more adult, we’ve… Read the full story

    tiny chihuahua abandoned in a towel
    (Picture: Mayhew Animal Home)

    Tiny the chihuahua was found shivering under a hedge in Roundwood Park in Willesden, North West London.

    He was freezing cold, dehydrated, and had been dumped in the park wrapped in a towel.

    Thankfully he was found by someone who was able to bring Tiny into animal welfare charity Mayhew for help.

    Tiny was terrified. He was shaking like a leaf, clearly scared of people after being abandoned.

    Mayhew’s Animal Welfare Officer, AJ Ford, said: ‘Poor Tiny was wrapped up in a towel and looked terrified.

    Finding friends who have experienced similar things to you can be a good start (Picture: Ella Byworth for Metro.co.uk)

    Everyone gets nervous sometimes, but what about when your nerves can stop you from socialising altogether?

    This is known as social anxiety disorder, an overwhelming fear of social situations that can leave sufferers debilitated and avoiding real life meet-ups at all costs.

    The National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) describes it as one of the most common anxiety disorders.

    And in the US it’s estimated that the disorder affects 6.8% of the population.

    Having personally overcome the condition in the last few years, I wanted to let you know that it is possible to… Read the full story

    SEX INJURIES FEATURES: Cervix bruising, vaginal microtears, semen allergy

    The idea of your vagina tearing is pretty terrifying.

    Most of us associate tears with ripped perineums thanks to the wonders of childbirth. Those are indeed bloody scary.

    But tears don’t always happen on such a dramatic level. Along with large tears you can easily see (and feel. Ouch.), it’s also possible – and extremely common – to develop micro-tears in the vagina and vulva.

    These are teeny-tiny tears that are usually caused by sex, inserting a tampon, or masturbation.

    Micro-tears happen when the vagina is not properly lubricated, and the membrane or skin gets pulled. Because the skin around this… Read the full story

    Tracking everything you eat can start off feeling soothing, but can quickly turn obessive (Picture: MMUFFIN for Metro.co.uk)

    Of all the things for a generation to be obsessed with, fitness and well-being seems to be pretty harmless.

    While the 20-somethings of the past would binge drink cheap wine and party until the early hours (or so I vaguely remember), my hangover-free contemporaries seem more likely to ask to arrange to meet at a yoga studio for an acai bowl than anything else.
