A new day dawns as the season comes to a close for lobsterman Norman Haynes, 69, loading traps onto a trailer, Friday, Oct. 19, 2012, in Falmouth, Maine.

A worker adjusts brocade in a loom at the Veba textile factory in Broumov, Czech Republic, Tuesday, Sept. 25, 2012. When the managers of a textile factory in northern Czech Republic declared they would focus sales on Africa, their bankers, insurers and suppliers shook their heads in disbelief. A decade later, the decision is paying off. While the textile industry in Europe is under pressure from low-cost competition in Asia, the Czech company Veba is working around the clock to meet demand for the high-quality brocade it ships to Muslims and elites in western Africa. The textiles are of a better quality than those shipped in from China and have become a favorite among Africa�s Mecca-bound pilgrims. (AP Photo/Petr David Josek)

A Pakistani student, stands on a chair to reach the blackboard and write on it, during a class at the EHD foundation school, in Islamabad, Pakistan.

Others include rampant poverty, harassment and the government's failure to prioritize education spending. (AP Photo/Nathalie Bardou)
