What’s up Hong Kong?
Tens of thousands in Hong Kong are spending the night occupying a major highway, demanding free and fair elections independent of Beijing’s influence. Beijing has responded with militarized police, and is censoring photos of the protests on social media.
More than 100 young people gathered in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday to show solidarity with pro-democracy demonstrators in Hong Kong.
The peaceful crowd sang “Do You Hear the People Sing” from Les Miserables and chanted calls for open elections on the steps of the Hong Kong Economic and Trade Institute before moving to Lafayette Square in front of the White House.
They tied yellow ribbons – a symbol of the pro-democracy movement – on each other and on nearby railings.

Portuguese designer Susana Soares has developed a device for detecting cancer and other serious diseases using trained bees. The bees are placed in a glass chamber into which the patient exhales; the bees fly into a smaller secondary chamber if they detect cancer.
Scientists have found that honey bees - Apis mellifera - have an extraordinary sense of smell that is more acute than that of a sniffer dog and can detect airborne molecules in the parts-per-trillion range.
Bees can be trained to detect specific chemical odours, including the biomarkers associated with diseases such as tuberculosis, lung, skin and pancreatic cancer.
