"@zaha_hadid, the Iraqi-British architect whose structures left a mark on skylines around the world, died in Miami today at the age of 65. The first woman to win the Pritzker Prize, architecture's highest honor, @zaha_hadid was renowned for her theoretical work. Although some Romans might have wondered whether one of her buildings would overwhelm a placid neighborhood full of apartment buildings, the design for @museomaxxi, the contemporary art museum pictured here, drew high praise. "Its sensual lines seem to draw the energy of the city right up into its belly, making everything around it look timid," wrote the former @nytimes architecture critic Nicolai Ouroussoff. Photographer Giulione Piscitelli took this photo of part of @museomaxxi's exterior, reflecting its surroundings, in 2014.

""Look at me like you are really mad at me. Show me your good side." Jason Aaron Baca is good-looking. But when Jason slips on a pair of dark aviator glasses, he looks remarkably like Tom Cruise in "Top Gun." His assignment one day in January: Become a military helicopter pilot saved in a crash by a female rescuer with whom he once had a torrid affair. Reunited, their passions have flared. Jason is a cover model for romance novels — a modern-day Fabio. By his account, the 42-year-old has been on nearly 500 book covers. In an industry which had annual sales totaling $1.08 billion in 2013, a cover image can be pivotal. Beefcake sells. While few models make enough to eke out a living, Jason maintains he doesn't do it for the money. Instead, modeling gives him a taste of fame in an otherwise low-key life. "Nobody else knows this secret life," said Jason, who also works as a customer-service clerk. "They just think I'm Jason." @laurakmorton photographed Jason Aaron Baca posing for a romance novel cover in the photographer Portia Shao's studio in Santa Cruz. #📸😎" By nytimes on Instagram.

"On a tiny, uninhabited island in the #Bahamas, about a dozen pigs live and swim freely in the clear blue water, watched over by tourists hoping to play with pigs in the sand. The pigs decide what their relationship with tourists will be, but expect to be fed by their visitors, and have been known to sit for food or whatever's in a bottle — even beer. There are different stories on how the pigs got to #BigMajorCay. Some say they swam to the island after a shipwreck; others say sailors left them there, planning to come back and eat them. The photographer @robin_schwartz, who has photographed animals for 30 years, traveled to her dream destination to photograph the pigs for @nytmag. She said that pig-watching came second to people-watching. "People want this semiwild, unpredictable pig experience and can become unbelievably and uproariously happy," she said, "despite the fact that they probably ate bacon and eggs for breakfast." #🐷🏖" By nytimes on Instagram.

"Matiullah Wesa with his niece outside the library he established 3 years ago in his family's home in Spinbaldak, in southern Afghanistan. Inside, the library has nearly 4,000 books organized on neat metal shelves. A volunteer organization Matiullah started as a teenager is working to reopen schools closed because of violence and to bring books to some of Afghanistan's worst-affected conflict areas. The organization began a national book drive last year, collecting about 20,000 books that have helped establish 7 modest libraries in provinces with a reputation for some of the worst violence of the war. "If this library was in the city, we would have 100 visitors a day," Matiullah said. "But to me, the 5 visitors in the village are more important than the 100 in the city." @andrewquilty photographed Matiullah, now 22 and finishing a degree in political science in India, as a dust storm approached in February. #📚" By nytimes on Instagram.

""I came here with a friend to just watch and drink my tea. I thought, boxing? Who would want to do that?" recalled Tammy Moone, a 55-year-old forklift operator who until 5 years ago identified as a man. "But I put on my skirt and my heels and loved it. I came back in my workout clothes, and I never once felt out of place." @michellewsiu photographed Tammy at the @TorontoNewsgirls Boxing Club, an inclusive gym in Canada's largest city. Signs on the bathroom door welcome all gender classifications. Most come to box, but some also gather around the piano for the Saturday night choir. They can join the sewing circle or resupply their own cupboards from the bins that form a food bank. "If they can summon the courage to get here, we do everything we can to make it a safe space," said Savoy Howe, the @TorontoNewsgirls founder. "And you get to punch stuff.""

It is a pleasure to meet you at sea." In the disputed waters of the South China Sea, 2 warships, each loaded with missiles, torpedoes and heavy artillery, confronted each other at sea with an exchange of weather pleasantries. From Mischief Reef, where China is building a military base, to Scarborough Shoal, where the Chinese are building outposts on disputed territory far from the mainland, the United States and China are on an almost continuous state of alert. America's goal is to keep the sea, one of the world's busiest shipping lanes, open to all maritime traffic. But officials are worried that tensions are only rising due to a case brought by the Philippines, accusing China of making an "excessive claim" to most of the sea. @bdentonphoto captured sailors aboard the Chancellorsville cruiser U.S.S. preparing to raise anchor at a Malaysian port. #🚢" By nytimes on Instagram.

"A @metopera chorus member waited in the wings before entering during a recent rehearsal. The Metropolitan #Opera is essentially an opera factory — one that is never busier than when building and staging a new production, as it did with "Roberto Devereux," which opened last week. More than 3,000 faux pearls and 500 yards of fabric went into its 76 Elizabethan-style costumes, which were sewn in the Met's costume shop on the second floor. To capture the work that goes into a staging that will be performed just 8 times this season — an expensive, labor-intensive undertaking that helps explain why the Met's budget will be almost $300 million this year — @nytimes staff photographer @jamesestrin spent time in windowless underground rehearsal rooms, attended a costume fitting and got a look at the orchestra's well-dressed, long-running intermission poker game.

"One day last fall, an actor named Greg Boz got a job offer — but not the kind he's used to getting. On the line was an artist who calls herself @zardulu, whose medium is the elaborately staged viral video. Revealed as the force behind #SelfieRat and suspected as the creator of #PizzaRat, @zardulu enlisted Greg to play a fisherman who caught a 3-eyed fish in the Gowanus Canal. The prank was reported in a slew of news outlets and even found its way into a subway ad. Greg isn't the flannel-shirted guy who appears in the viral video, but he assumes that the artist tried the scene with other actors. @nytchangster photographed Greg with the 3-eyed fish he received from @zardulu last fall."

Sambhar masala — a blend of curry leaves, chiles, yellow split peas, fenugreek, cinnamon, coriander, cumin and poppy and mustard seeds — is one of thousands of versions of a spice mix from southern #India.

"Once upon a time, the Golden State @warriors needed a superhero. And so, Sadiki Fuller made his living by dressing up in a skintight bodysuit as the @warriors mascot, Thunder. But the trampoline-bouncing, basketball-dunking, superhero was banished to the mascot junkyard in 2008, to make room for the Oklahoma City Thunder (@okcthunder). The @warriors never won more than 21 games in each of Sadiki's 5 seasons with the team. But these days, with @stephencurry30 making 3-pointers in record numbers, the notion of the larger-than-life Golden State mascot is a quaint memory. "Steph Curry would have made my job so easy," Sadiki said. "You know how hard it is to get 18,000 people to scream when they feel like the team is just going to lose again?" @jokemichaels photographed Sadiki in costume in Los Angeles earlier this month."

"This intricate #mural took shape over the past few weeks, spreading across a harried quarter of #Cairo where Egypt's garbage collectors live amid overflowing bundles of the city's trash. An artist known as @elseed chose a forsaken corner of the city away from the gaze of officials who have shown little tolerance for artists. By the time @elseed finished the painting 2 weeks ago, it stretched across more than 50 buildings, making it the largest public work of art in Cairo anyone can recall. The photographer @degnerd captured the scale of the mural, which is only fully visible from the edge of the district.

"25 years ago, Vietnam had nearly 600 cases of #tuberculosis for every 100,000 residents. Today, it has less than 200. But, Vietnamese officials and at the @worldhealthorganization fear that hard-won progress may soon be reversed and a remarkable success story may come apart, with deadly consequences. The biggest threat: The money is close to running out. To reach Vietnam's ambitious goal of essentially eliminating tuberculosis as a public health problem, its tuberculosis-control program will cost at least $66 million a year. The country now spends just $26 million a year, $19 million of which comes from foreign donors with budget limitations for future years.

"Thanks to a critically acclaimed (at least in the West) and relentlessly bleak Russian movie, Teriberka has an unwelcome reputation as possibly the most miserable place in Russia — a remote, frozen wasteland of drunks, brutish officials, crumbling buildings and unalloyed despair.

In the early 19th century, Cholera was one of the most feared diseases. It is spread through contaminated food and water, then attacks the wall of the small intestine. This leads to diarrhea and vomiting, sometimes so bad that those infected can die from dehydration in a matter of hours. Lucky for us, Cholera's spread has decreased greatly in developed countries.

""Why are we represented by a mythical monster?" the photographer @kierandodds asked himself not long after he started working on #landofscots, a project exploring identity in Scotland. @kierandodds took this photo of the #LochNessMonster peeking of out of a shallow pond beside the Loch Ness Centre in Drumnadrochit, #Scotland. Over the years, the myth of Nessie — who first appeared, according to legend, in the 6th century and resurfaced in 1933 in a famous photo — has become highly profitable. A University in Inverness, for instance, offered a seminar in "monster marketing," hoping to help local businesses cash in on tourism dollars. Nessie, @kierandodds said, is a symbol of the deeper stories that can be found in the landscape. "It happens to be the one that has captured the imagination and it brings in the tourists."
