Pilots stop 222 asylum seekers being deported from Germany by refusing to fly | The Independent
Pilots have stopped 222 deportations of asylum seekers from Germany by refusing to take off with them on board. Many of the pilots refused to take control of flights taking people back to Afghanistan, where violence is still rife following years of war and occupation by Western forces. One of the airlines involved said pilots made the decisions on a "case-by-case" basis if they believed "flight safety could be affected".

An artist replaced the men in these classic Westerns with women. The images are awesome.
Felice House says she quickly became infatuated with the Western genre: the outfits, the cowboy boots, the music.

"But when I actually got around to watching Western movies," she adds, "I was horrified by the roles for ... anybody except white men basically."

The stoic renegades played by John Wayne, James Dean, and Clint Eastwood stood in stark contrast to the helpless damsels they shared the screen with. The empowered and the powerless.

House had spent much of her career painting women in ways that clashed with media representations, so she decided to tackle the male-dominated Western genre.

She put out a call for models and was quickly overwhelmed with women who wanted to participate.
