Nina Langton had a great group of friends, lived in a prosperous Connecticut neighborhood and was close with her parents. Like most 16-year-olds, Nina spent much of her free time on her smartphone. But unlike many of her classmates, she was never "targeted" on social media—her word for the bullying and criticism that took place daily on sites like Snapchat. “Part of what made my depression so difficult was that I didn’t understand why I was feeling so sad,” says Nina, now 17, photographed here by @raniamatar. Later, after her attempted suicide and during her stay at a rehabilitation facility, Nina and her therapist identified body image insecurity as the foundation of her woe. “I was spending a lot of time stalking models on Instagram, and I worried a lot about how I looked,” she says. She’d stay up late in her bedroom, looking at social media on her phone, and poor sleep—coupled with an eating disorder—gradually snowballed until suicide felt like her only option. “I didn’t totally want to be gone,” she says. “I just wanted help and didn’t know how else to get it.” Read the full story about teens, smartphones and mental health on TIME.com.

Arianys Garo, 10, and Gilianny Garo, 8, two sisters in a family that lost their home due to Hurricane Maria, pose for a portrait in Toa Alta, Puerto Rico, on Oct. 4, 2017. It's been a little more than a month since Hurricane Maria tore into the U.S. island territory of 3.4 million people, taking down the electric grid as it cut a devastating path. A by-the-numbers look offers a bleak assessment of the long road to recovery: less than 20% of the power grid has been restored; more than a third of households still lack running water; some 60,000 homes need roofing help; and while 86% of grocery stores have reopened, they aren't necessarily stocked.

A government soldier waves the Philippine flag as a group readies to leave the battle against militants in the southern Saguiaran town, Lanao del Sur, on Oct. 20, 2017. President Rodrigo Duterte declared the liberation of Marawi City last Tuesday, although some fighting can still being heard. The declaration came after the death of Abu Sayyaf leader Isnilon Hapilon and one of the Maute brothers, Omar Maute, after nearly five months of fierce urban warfare inside the besieged city. The fighting that began in late May has left more than 1,000 people dead and at least 400,000 displaced. Photograph by Jes Aznar (@jeszmann)—@gettyimages

When Philip Pullman was 10 years old, he witnessed a vision that has stayed with him ever since. It was 1956, and he was living in South Australia, where his stepfather was a pilot with Britain's Royal Air Force. The River Murray floods that year had left huge parts of the region underwater, and he remembers being driven out to see it. "It was astonishing," the 70-year-old British author says now. "It was an immense mass, as wide as the sea, of gray water whipped up by a cold wind. The power of it. It was an impression that never left me." It’s this memory that inspired the flood at the center of 'La Belle Sauvage,' the first volume of the Book of Dust, Pullman's new trilogy set in the universe of his fantasy series His Dark Materials. Released between 1995 and 2000, the three novels that launched the franchise entered the canon of young-adult fiction. He says the driving force behind his choice of genre is less a desire to build new worlds than a simple reluctance to explore this one. "It’s because I’m a lazy bastard," he jokes. "Too idle to get up off my backside and do any research in the real world." Pullman is similarly humble when asked what he wants the reader to take away from this new book, what that great flood inspired by a childhood vision really means. "The meaning of the book is never just what the author thinks it is. It's a great mistake to rely on the author to tell you," he says. "We don’t know. The meaning is only what emerges when the book and the reader meet." Read the full story on TIME.com. Photograph by Lewis Khan (@lewis.khan) for TIME

Opposition leader Raila Odinga speaks during a rally at the Ogango Grounds in Kisumu, Kenya, on Oct. 20, 2017. Tensions are high as Kenya waits for a new presidential vote, scheduled for Oct. 26, following the contested vote in August that was won by President Uhuru Kenyatta. Odinga disputed the results and the Supreme Court found it was flawed. Odinga, who has said he would withdraw, has rejected the new election, claimed that a free and fair election is not currently possible in Kenya.

Facing hundreds of New York City's elite, House Speaker Paul Ryan poked fun at himself and the Catholic church at an annual charity dinner in New York on Oct. 19, 2017. The Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation Dinner encourages speakers to "poke fun at a political issue, an opponent, or themselves," according to the program, the Associated Press reports. Ryan's top target? President Trump. He reminded dinner guests that it was Trump who offended attendees when he was there a year earlier. "Some said it was unbecoming of a public figure and they said that his comments were offensive. Well, thank God he's learned his lesson," Ryan deadpanned during his keynote address.

A girl plays with firecrackers while celebrating Diwali, the annual Hindu festival of lights, in Mumbai on Oct. 19, 2017. In a bid to keep the air cleaner after this year's celebrations, local media reported India's Supreme Court recently reinstated its ban on selling firecrackers in and around New Delhi. (Those who already have them can still use them, but new ones can't be sold.) Intense smog temporarily closed many schools following last year's Diwali celebrations and resulted in the ban.

Former President Obama took the stage in Newark, N.J., on Oct. 19, 2017, for his first post-presidency campaign event: a canvas kickoff for Phil Murphy, the Democratic gubernatorial candidate for New Jersey, and Sheila Oliver, who is running as his lieutenant governor. Obama did not address President Trump's false accusation that he failed to call any Gold Star families during his time in the White House; he did not mention Trump or any member of Congress by name. He did however, disavow political divisiveness and deride what he coined backward looking policies. "Some of the politics now we... we thought we put that to bed," he said, to laughter from the audience. "That's folks looking... 50 years back. It's the 21st century, not the 19th century." He also carried a message to those who are disenfranchised with "how things are going" but didn't vote: "you cannot complain!" Video source: AP
