Week in Pics: A helpful app, warm weather and women’s hoops

A PTSD app helps an Omaha veteran, spring warms the midwest and the Nebraska women’s basketball season ends at the Sweet Sixteen in the World-Herald Week in Pictures: March 25-31, 2013.

Darryl Summers, a U.S. Army veteran who suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder from his service in Iraq, has used an app on his phone called PTSD Coach to calm himself through breathing and relaxation techniques. “It talks you through the process,” he said. “It’s pretty neat.” Here, he is in his car near his Omaha home.

About Alyssa Schukar

I have been a staff photojournalist at the Omaha World-Herald since September 2008. I'm from Lincoln and am a 2006 graduate of the College of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Previously, I worked as an assistant at Malone and Co., a commercial photography studio in Omaha. My favorite pictures are those that give insight on the life of an individual or family because I understand the world better through the experiences of the people I meet. It's always humbling to be allowed such intimate access. My most challenging assignments come in many forms. Funerals, especially those of soldiers, always are emotionally draining, but I try to approach people with respect and dignity. In my time at the paper, I have covered a wide variety of assignments, including the Nebraska and Iowa National Guard's deployments in Afghanistan, Husker football at home and away, portraits of wigs big and small, rodeo queen competitions and intimate views of everyday life and love.

    Weather is driven by air pressure (temperature and moisture) differences between one place and another. These pressure and temperature differences can occur due to the sun angle at any particular spot, which varies by latitude from the tropics. The strong temperature contrast between polar and tropical air gives rise to the jet stream. Weather systems in the mid-latitudes, such as extratropical cyclones, are caused by instabilities of the jet stream flow. :
