A CBC News team is in Haiti covering the violent anti-corruption protests. The team spoke to four men who belong to local gangs known as "baz" who opened up about what their lives were like living in the poor neighbourhoods of Port-au-Prince. • Reynold Chalus, 43, says the wealth gap has created deep divisions. "The problem we have in my neighbourhood is that we see the wealthy people and how they live well while we live in bad conditions, hunger, no work," says Chalus. "We’re not really thieves or bandits we have to resort to these things because of the problems that exist in the country." • Mismanagement and bribery by previous governments, including that of former president René Préval, helped to inflame the "gang phenomenon," according to 27-year-old Arold Cadet. "At that time, the guys who were running the country were taking care of themselves while the masses were suffering, so we had, even more, youth quitting school to join the gangs. My older brother joined a gang so I followed him and joined the same gang." • Dimitri Fabien, 29, barely escaped being armed by his neighbourhood leaders. "I had to go on the run, sleeping in the streets and living a miserable life. With the help of the community police, I was able to become a car washer. Now, I would like to help some of these youth who are in the street find some kind of social support because the life bearing arms isn’t worth it." • For Kobe, joining a gang came down to money. "The reason we stood up is because the U.S. dollar is becoming very expensive," said the 35-year-old. "That causes things to become more expensive so we wanted to let the government know how difficult things are." • • • • • Photos by: Jason Burles, CBC News @j.burles | Reporting by Sylvia Thomson, CBC News | #Haiti #PortAuPrince #Protest #Portrait #Photography #CBCNews #CBC ...

Have you ever seen anything like this? • Herven Horth of Hope, Que., goes out snowshoeing hundreds of times every winter, but he'd never before seen this spinning ice disc phenomenon. • "It's not normal," he said. • This disc is about three metres across, but it formed in a similar way to one about 10 times larger than was seen in Westbrook, Maine, in January. • The phenomenon occurs when a circular current below the ice creates a whirlpool effect, Mark Battle, an associate physics professor at Bowdoin College in Brunswick, Maine, told CBC's As it Happens. • (Video: Herven Horth) @cbcmontreal #gaspe #gaspe ́ #ice #winter #frozenriver ...

Instagram playgrounds are a new type of destination where consumers pay to experience a creative, themed environment that's designed to make their next selfie stand out on social media.
•
One of those spots is the Museum of Illusions in Toronto, which puts visitors in different optical illusions to give them the sense that they're off balance or make them appear larger than they are or as though they are hanging from the ceiling.
•
Unlike many other museums, this one encourages photography. Markers on the floor show the precise spot to stand in order to capture the best angle on the illusion.

A growing number of companies are building their business models around the selfie, attracting people with destinations that beg visitors to take out their phone and snap away.

Lighting up the sky.
•
The full moon on Feb. 19, known as a super snow moon or hunger moon, was the brightest supermoon of the year and seen around the world.
•
It is called a supermoon because of its close distance to Earth during its orbit around the planet.
• 
Radio-Canada's Simon-Marc Charron captured it in Montreal's Ville-Marie district shining over the Gare Viger building.
• 
The next shot of the moon is from Toronto, where it was photographed using a telephoto lens.
• 
If you missed it, there will be another supermoon in March 21, it just won't be as big and bright.

play_circle_filled Robert Greenfield enjoys skating on his backyard rink in Toronto, but it’s when the snow falls that he lets his creative side loose on the ice.
•
He posts time-lapse videos to social media of himself clearing the snow to create designs on the rink.
•
Greenfield has drawn things like hockey team logos and cartoon characters on his snowy canvas, but his latest creation was much more ambitious.
•
''This is not exactly a masterpiece, but I present the Snowna Lisa!” wrote Greenfield in his YouTube post.
•
“Oh, you think that's bad? Wait till I tell you it should be hanging in the Igloouvre,'' he wrote.

play_circle_filled Montreal runs one of the largest snow-removal operations in the world.
•
About 300,000 truckloads of snow are taken off the street each winter and hauled away to one of the city's 29 snow dumps.
•
Before the 1990s, the snow was simply dumped into the St. Lawrence River, polluting the river system with salt and gravel.
•
Now, a third of the snow goes into Montreal's sewer system, and is treated along with the rest of Montreal's sewage.

In summer, the steep cliffs of Red Head, near the town of Flatrock, N.L., offer beautiful waterfalls for hikers on the East Coast Trail.
•
When winter comes, the frozen falls become a playground for climbers.
•
Terry Day is a rock climber who’s now an advocate for the sport of ice climbing.
•
In some ways, ice climbing is easier than rock climbing, Day said, as you don't have to look for a place to grab onto. Instead, the sharp pointed crampons on your feet dig into the ice.
•
A swing from the axes you carry in each hand lets you dig in to the side of the cliff and pull yourself up.
•
And it’s a different climb every time you go up.
