Last week, a series of flash floods and mudslides struck the Serrana mountain region near Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, destroying buildings roads and more. Nearly 14,000 people are now homeless, 759 are reported to have been killed and another 400 remain missing in this, Brazil's worst-ever natural disaster. As soldiers make their way to remote towns with aid and transportation, Brazil's government has said it would accelerate efforts to build up a nationwide disaster-prevention and early-warning system. Collected here are photos from the mountainous regions near Rio that were so hard-hit by these landslides.

City of Lights - Medellin, Colombia
Christmas time in Medellin, Colombia is a time of celebration and holiday spirit as the city begins to light up with amazing decorations. Citizens decorate their yards, balconies and homes with festive decor as everybody prepares for the month of December and its various celebrations. Another big highlight every December is when the city turns on the Christmas lights that they have been busy preparing the entire month of November. This event traditionally begins on the night of December 7th of every year, but varies from time to time depending on the weather, etc. These Christmas lights adorn the entire city and are setup along major thoroughfares, roads, parks and especially along the Medellin River. The concentration of Christmas lights along the Medellin River is truly a sight to be seen as millions of dollars are spent every year creating unique themes that are different from the previous season’s theme. Families come out to visit the Medellin River area as it comes alive with thousands of people who revel in the fantastic array of colors and designs that make up the area. There are vendors selling everything from cotton candy, fast foods, beverages of every sort and flavor as well as street performers who come out to entertain the crowds that include tourists who flock to the city to see the sites and more than 500 different activities and 80 events that take place throughout the entire month.

Canada's River Turns Green... Amazing!!!!

It happened on December 29, 2010, in  Victoria's peaceful Goldstream Park. The waters of the river suddenly  became neon green, and everyone passing by it rubbed their eyes to make  sure what they were seeing wasn't just an illusion. It was very real,  but was it that made Goldstream River look so alien-like? After an hour  or so, the fluorescent coloring vanished, but the questions about the  bizarre phenomenon remained unanswered.

After analyzing the neon-green water, the local Environment Ministry  said it was the result of a chemical called "fluorescein". Neither the  substance itself nor its products of degradation are toxic, and experts  believe that fish and their habitat were not affected, judging by the  concentration and flow rate  of the river. Authorities haven't yet identified the culprits, but believed the  dumping of fluorescein in the Goldstream River was just a holiday season  prank.

The World's Most Creative Chairs

These are some of the worlds most creative and strangest chairs! From the ghost chair to the Obelisk Chairs and even chairs inspired by the female form! Enjoy these 20 most creative chairs!
 The World's Strangest Chairs

Strange Chairs
 This is a Ghost Chair collection by Design Drift. The plexiglass chairs have ghost-like forms inside them, created with laser technology. The ghost is a futuristic concept of a chair, 3-dimensionally captured within the boundaries of reality. It gives you a bit of a dramatic feeling: unbelievable, high-tech, but beautiful.

Strange Chairs

This oddity was designed by Allen Jones in 1969. Constructed of painted plastic and mixed media, if you want to get a closer look at it head over to the Tate Gallery in London.

Strange Chairs
Exhibit A is the 1960s Female Form Fiberglass Chair ($10,500), a chair that proliferates the animal-hide trend, and takes the classic Louis XV chair to a "sensual" level — kind of like a dirty version of Philippe Starck's Louis Ghost Chair.

Strange Chairs

Creative chairs by Osian Batyka-Williams. The tube chair is made from stainless steel tubes. The price? 3. 295 US dollars
Strange Chairs

A Mona Lisa portrait that can be transformed into a chair (or the other way around) is a total space saver. It acts as a chair, and when unused, you can flip it up and hang it on the wall to save space. Perfect for art lovers with small apartments. This concept is by Korean designer Kwang Hoo Lee, who turns chairs into works of art for a living.
Strange Chairs

Creative Mars and Venus chairs designed by Mahdi Naim.
Strange Chairs

This bizarre chair is not your usual chair design. This chair design called the Pelvis Rocking Chair would be a nice addition if you were a collector of chairs with unique designs.
Strange Chairs

Inspired by Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland, Holly Palmer has designed this unique stool that looks like a giant tea cup.
Strange Chairs

The PrettyPretty seating series designed by Degana Kailjo are, according to the designer, “Pretty heads to sit on.” The PrettyPretty seating series is hand made out of horsetail hair. Due to the character of the material each piece in this limited edition series is unique; they are also signed and numbered.
Strange Chairs

I know it may look like a hairy dog, but this wonderful chair was presented in the Maison&Objet fair in Paris on September 2007 as a part of the Ecological trend. This "hairy chair" (or sculpture?) is made of very fine cut paper by the Architect/Designer Charles Kaisin from Brussels.
Strange Chairs

Little in the way of information is available concerning this rather hauntingly styled meat chair except to say that, the brainchild or Italian designer Simone Racheli's chair is made from plastic and finished to resemble a series of muscles and tendons.
Strange Chairs

Creative chair by designer Ania Wagner is made from sustainable wood and lined with a cultivated industrial felt.
Strange Chairs

The Polish design team razy2 made a chair that's built like a stack of sticky notes. The Q-Book is composed of sheets of paper, carefully cut, that are attached on one side. If you need something to write on, just tear off a sheet.
Strange Chairs

This would just freak me out if I saw it at someone's house.
Strange Chairs

Some restaurants change their cutlery as often as every nine months. The Cutlery Chair utilises these hard to recycle, unwanted cutlery pieces as building blocks to create truly unique pieces of functional furniture.
Strange Chairs

The panda chair was designed and created by Brazilians Fernando and Humberto Campana in a numbered and limited edition of 25 chairs.
Strange Chairs

This is how I want to go grocery shopping!
Strange Chairs

This anthropomorphic chair was designed by Sergio Gill. The funky chair which made it to the IWF Design Emphasis Competition resembles a reclining female figure. Gill used a software program that scanned the female body then translated it into another stylizing software program called AlphaCAM. Finally, Gill used a birch plywood model with a tung oil furniture finish.
Strange Chairs

The Obelisk Chairs is four powdered coated aluminum frame chairs with white cushions and a table which can stack into one piece made out of woven polyethylene. And yeah, it's cool, but how can they justify the $8,922 price tag? For that price the thing should be made out of uranium.
Strange Chairs

This is definitely the most risque in our series of weird furniture: The 4Legs. A self-described "provocative chair" by the Dutch designer Mario Philippona. Undoubtedly not for the faint-hearted, or for an average living room, though the designer's own description encourages it to be "used as a single piece to cheer up your living room" and claims to be "more comfortable than most designer dining chairs." Gives a new meaning to 'bums on seats'.
