19) When Adan Bello was born, his blinking eyes turned towards the calm melody of a duo of harpists playing Brahms' "Cradle Song" in the corner of a Caracas public hospital's maternity wing. Minutes later, his mother received a certificate signing Adan up for Venezuela's hugely successful classical music program, known as "El Sistema" (The System). In a nation awash with guns and with one of the world's highest murder rates, The System has for decades sought to counteract poor children's exposure to violence with the gentle and inspiring influence of classical music. It used to only admit children aged at least 5. But under its latest projects, hundreds of smaller infants can receive voice lessons, musical initiation with paper-made instruments, and free concerts. Photos: Carlos Garcia Rawlins / Reuters

23) A newly revealed mosaic on the floor of a vast Greek tomb shows Hades hauling his reluctant bride Persephone to the underworld, archaeologists announced Thursday. When the artwork was first uncovered a few days ago, excavators could only see part of the scene. The mosiac seemed to show Hermes, the Greek messenger God and son of Zeus, in a broad-brimmed hat, leading a horsedrawn chariot with a bearded man in tow. But when more dirt was removed, a third figure came into view: a woman stretching her arm out in distress. Archaeologists say it's now clear the mosaic depicts a famous scene from Greek mythology: the abduction of Persephone, sometimes called the rape of Persephone. Persephone, the daughter of Zeus and the harvest goddess Demeter, was carried off to the underworld by Hades to reign as his queen. She eventually worked out a deal to split her time between her mother on Earth and her husband in the underworld. The story was used to explain the changing seasons.
