At London?s Chelsea flower show this year, vacuum cleaner manufacturer James Dyson created a display where water flowed uphill. Dyson was inspired by artist M.C.

Sinafasi Makelo, of the Mbuti pygmies, has asked the UN to stop government and rebel fighters in the Democratic Republic of Congo from eating them.
