Acrobats

Children display their acrobatic skills at an underpass in Manila on August 28, 2014 near where informal settlers' homes were recently demolished.  The Philippine economy rebounded to post 6.4-percent growth in the second quarter and regain its status as one of the strongest in Asia, authorities said on August 28. Officials said in April that amongst their new targets is the lowering of the country's poverty incidence from 25.2 percent of the population in 2012 to 18.0 to 20.0 percent by 2016.
