Raisi’s funeral is about a lot more than the late Iranian president

World

From his days as a clerical student, to overseeing executions as part of the judiciary, Ebrahim Raisi’s life has been intimately tied with Iran’s tumultuous modern history. Yet after all that, his presidency was notably unremarkable. Unlike previous Iranian presidents, Raisi seemed content to serve as an empty vessel that carried out the reactionary policies of Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, the final arbiter on policymaking.

China’s military shows off rifle-toting robot dogs

World

It looks like something out of the dystopian show “Black Mirror,” but it’s just the latest adaptation of robotics for the modern battlefield. During recent military drills with Cambodia, China’s military showed off a robot dog with an automatic rifle mounted on its back, essentially turning man’s best (electronic) friend into a killing machine.

How AI and bionics are helping Ukrainian soldiers return to action

World

Valera Kucherenko had already served a term in the Ukrainian army when Russia invaded in 2022. But he joined back up and, on a fateful October night in 2023, lost both hands in a grenade attack. It’s a story that’s all too common for Ukrainian soldiers. Since the start of the war, an estimated 20,000 Ukrainians have lost limbs.

Striking photos show nature reclaiming brutalist concrete

World

The common opinions about Brutalist architecture are a far cry from the way we often describe the natural world: lush, colorful, verdant. But a new photobook is exploring nature’s relationship with Brutalist architecture — from a theater in Japan to a library in Canada — and finding beauty in the contrast.
