In this photo by Andy Wong, a woman feeds instant noodles to children outside a tent set up for earthquake survivors in Ludian county of southwest China’s Yunnan province. Many of the homes in the hard-hit county, which has a population of about 429,000, were rudimentary mud-brick structures that collapsed easily in the quake. Sunday’s 6.1-magnitude temblor in the mountainous farming region was the country’s deadliest temblor in four years and its biggest test of emergency response under leader Xi Jinping.

 In this photo taken on Thursday, Oct. 16, 2014, lifelong Mississippi resident Logenvia Morris poses at her home in  Jackson, Miss., next to her prize possession, the first Mississippi game jersey her son Aaron Morris wore for the football team. Morris, who goes to every football game to cheer for her son, said the offensive lineman had to overcome his grandfather’s deep skepticism about whether black students are truly welcome at the university. The warm welcome extended to both mother and son during a recruiting visit by students and players are among the main reasons the Morris family were quick to join the Ole Miss family.
