A specially commissioned map of London charts the city’s buried rivers, tube lines, bunkers, sewers, government tunnels, and other subterranean secrets

The map, created by Stephen Walter, is part of an exhibition documenting 500 years of maps of London.

Most people give the homeless change or leftovers, Mark Bustos is cutting their hair

For the past few months, New York City hairstylist Mark Bustos — who normally spends his days working at an upscale salon — has been volunteering on his days off to offer haircuts to homeless people he sees on the street. With a simple phrase, “I want to do something nice for you today,” he has been helping people get a fresh, uplifting makeover.

For people who have been trapped in a cycle of poverty, unemployment and homelessness, the makeover can also serve a useful function: looking presentable for a job.
