Photographer’s Son’s Cuteness Is Just Unbearable

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on August 25, 2012

Cute Piano Kid

Our hearts melted when we came across a photo of toddler Ethan and had to share with the world (you can thank us after you click through the gallery). We’ve had quite a few contenders that could be entered into a “most adorable baby ever”competition here on HuffPost Parents, but Ethan has a few advantages — chubby cheeks, hipster sweaters and a photographer dad, Dotun Ayodeji. Sometimes, when you’re that cute and your parent is a talented photographer, the “OMG” factor can be almost too much to handle. (More proof: Kayla, Kristin and Henry). Click through the slideshow below, say AWW for as long as you need, then let us know in the comments — who are the cute kids in your life?

Year In Photos: 2011 Uprisings And Protests

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on December 21, 2011

The day a young fruit-seller, tired of corruption and sick of constant humiliation, set himself ablaze in Tunisia, he also sparked a wave of protests that would rattle countries around the world. In 2011, people on nearly every continent took to the streets to express frustration with their leaders, parties, and ruling regimes. In several cases, 2011’s protests led to revolutionary changes.

In Egypt, thousands of demonstrators in Cairo’s Tahrir Square defied a brutal regime crackdown and toppled longtime leader Hosni Mubarak. The ousted president is currently standing trial in Cairo for corruption and killing protesters, while Egypt is in the midst of its first free and democratic elections.

Libya saw an end to four decades of rule by eccentric Colonel Muammar Gaddafi and his family. In a spectacular game of cat-and-mouse, rebel fighters hunted down Gaddafi as they captured loyalist strongholds city-by city, ultimately killing the colonel and one of his sons near the city of Sirte.

In Yemen, protesters camped out daily in the streets of Sana’a, uncompromisingly demanding the resignation of president Ali Abdullah Saleh. Last month, the president promised to hand over power in a landmark deal. Saleh had ruled Yemen for 33 years.

However, protests in many other parts of the world rage on.

Inspired by the events in Egypt and Libya, Syrian demonstrators hit the streets in March 2011, demanding democratic reforms and political participation. Yet the regime of Bashar Assad has reacted by ordering a brutal crackdown that has left more than 5,000 people dead so far.

In 2011, pro-democracy protesters in Bahrain also were met with brutal violence. Demonstrators and medical professionals who took care of the injured were arrested and persecuted.
