An Indonesian woman rides her motorcycle along a section of seawall in Jakarta, Indonesia, recently built to tackle rising waters. Jakarta is not only one of the world's most densely populated cities, it is also one of the world's fastest-sinking cities due to exponential development and rising sea levels. Rising temperatures and climate change have led to severe floods and storms, threatening the mostly poor residents of Jakarta's northern coast with the loss of their homes. (📷 Ed Wray/Getty Images)

Drummers play the #Maomoa royal war drums in #Zambia to mark the advent of the #Kuomboka Pageantry – Zambia’s largest cultural festival. In the ceremony, a crew of 200 paddlers are chosen to row the king of Barotse land over a 6-hour journey from his wet palace to his dry palace keeping him safe from floods. This event, which took place last week, is the first time the event has happened in 4 years, because of drought. Video: @JoMunnik

Turn your sound on for this one. For pre-digital natives, there's nothing quite as nostalgia-inducing as the manual "click," "clack" and "ding" sounds of an old mechanical typewriter. That's why the @BostonTypewriterOrchestra is making these old machines quite literally "sing" again. Since 2004, this six-man ensemble has been playing a range of covers and original songs on both desktop and portable machines from years past.

31 years ago today, an explosion tore through #Chernobyl. It was the worst nuclear accident the world had ever seen, and we’re still feeling the effects of it today. This abandoned theme park stands in the ghost town of #Pripyat, which was evacuated after the disaster. Pripyat, located in modern-day #Ukraine, was a city in the #USSR and is a ghostly snapshot of Eastern Europe before the fall of the Iron Curtain. (📷 SERGEI SUPINSKY/AFP/Getty Images)

Turn up your sound to hear the massive firepower of US-South Korea joint military drills. The two countries insist that they have no specific enemy in mind for these drills, but that's not how North Korea sees it.

Louis Chan's photographs carefully document the rooms of Chinese American immigrants in New York City.
We never glimpse the tenants but walking through Louis Chan's intimate exhibition of life-size Chinatown interior photographs, it feels as if they might step out at any moment to greet us.

Carefully documenting the rooms of Chinese American immigrants in New York City, the photographs invite you to become an investigator, to piece together the lives of unseen strangers in the sum of the objects they collect. (Photos: Louis Chan)
