It's all too easy to think of anything counted in the millions as an abstraction -- even if it's World War II, and the topic at hand is the millions of lives lost. Half a million German Army soldiers died in the (failed) battle of Stalingrad alone, with another 100,000 taken prisoner. In all, at least 8.7 million Soviet soldiers died in World War II (Halloran notes that some estimates place the tally as high as 14 million).
Japanese residents fled the remote southern island of Kuchinoerabu on Friday following the eruption of Mount Shindake -- and the spectacular eruption was captured on video. Mount Shindake spewed black clouds as high as 5.6 miles into the sky as authorities evacuated nearly 140 people from the island, with one man reportedly suffering minor burns but all others believed to be safe. Video captured by the Japan Meteorological Agency and published by the Japanese public broadcaster NHK shows the initial explosion mushrooming into a towering cloud of ash.

The footage, which was recorded by a crew member of the cargo ship Zeran and released by The Associated Press, lends a human face to the startling statistics of smuggling -- more than 1,700 have died making the Mediterranean journey so far this year. "At least five people drowned, more are missing," said Alpha Sisse, a 17-year-old from Ivory Coast who was in a second boat rescued by the Zeran.
Chile's Calbuco volcano erupted Wednesday for the first time since 1972, sending a massive plume of ash and smoke 40,000 feet in the air. Onlooker Rodrigo Barrera captured this time-lapse of the eruption Wednesday evening as the sun set on the plume, then shared the spectacular 22-second video on YouTube. As of Thursday morning, upwards of 4,000 people have been evacuated from around the base of the volcano. Chilean authorities told Reuters Wednesday the largest threat from the eruption is of possible pyroclastic flows, mixtures of burning rock and gas that can travel down from the volcano at speeds as high as 185 mph.
