Jaime Culebras offers a spectacular photograph of a gravid female Reticulated Glass Frog. The belly is completely transparent, so all the internal organs are visible. The liver, heart and digestive organs are covered by a white lining.

A transcript of Pope Francis' beautiful Christmas address. In many newspapers, the interpretation seems to be that this is a message to the Roman Curia. While this might be the case, most of the points resonate with every individual and human organization.

As most of Francis' speeches, this is very worth reading even if you don't care about his religion (or even religion in general). It can be interpreted as his views of how a healthier and more harmonious society should look like.
