Contestants watch a video of a male contestant on electronic screens during the recording of an episode of popular Chinese matchmaking television show "If You Are the One" in Beijing September 24, 2011. The show, which is owned by Jiangsu Satellite Television, has 24 single ladies standing on the stage and five bachelors coming up one after another in every episode. The bachelors are allowed three videos respectively giving details about their job, love experiences and friends' opinions. The bachelors then have to try all means to keep the lights on, which stands for the ladies' affection, so that they can gain the right to choose one of the ladies to match up with, or to walk away from the show.

Wrecked rickshaws are seen in a dump yard at Mirpur in Dhaka September 23, 2011. Rickshaws far outnumber cars on the streets of many Bangladeshi towns, and they are an important source of income for the country's poor, who often have no other options. Yet the vehicles are a major headache for police, who struggle with licensing and safety issues for the estimated 1 million tricycle rickshaws on the road in Dhaka. Nearly half of all road accidents in the city are believed to involve them. REUTERS/Andrew Biraj (BANGLADESH - Tags: CITYSPACE TRANSPORT TPX IMAGES OF THE DAY SOCIETY POVERTY)
