China has gone through many changes in modern times. Their cities are expanding rapidly, and they have one the fastest growing economies in the world. The Social climate of China is also undergoing drastic change. Its citizens want something else, democracy.

Chinese citizens have long felt the government has limited their freedoms. Several websites have been banned throughout China, such as Google. The more the country expands on a global scale, the more citizens want a true democracy.

The streets of Hong Kong have been flooded with protestors all calling for an end to Chief Executive C.Y. Lueng’s regime. China’s leader Lueng is losing his patience calling for the end of protests.

“The government and the police have the responsibilities and determination to take all necessary actions to restore social order,” Leung said in his televised address.

According to CNN, the wave of protestors were given a deadline to disperse, but remained in the streets. There were no riots, and government workers were allowed to pass.

The Hong Kong Federation of students met with Hong Kong chief executive secretary Carrie Lam on possibly diffusing the protests. This conflict might be worth monitoring, as it could negatively affect China’s economy.

An Oklahoma man beheaded a woman, and stabbed another after being fired from a food processing plant Friday, according to ABC News.

Alton Nolen, of Moore, Okla., was fired from Vaughan Foods earlier this morning at the human resources office.  He then attacked two women in the front office of another building in the facility.

Nolen, 30, severed the head of Colleen Hufford, 54, with a knife that is regularly used at the plant.

Traci Johnson, 43, was then repeatedly stabbed by Nolen until he was shot by the company’s chief operating officer, Mark Vaughan, who is also a reserve sheriff’s deputy, according to ABC News.

The FBI was called into the case by local police “due to the manner of death and the initial statements of co-workers,” according to the Moore Police Department.

In light of all the controversy surrounding the NFL in recent weeks, Devon Still’s story has been a bright spot. Bengals defensive end Devon Still’s 4-year-old daughter, Leah, was diagnosed with cancer. Still was uninsured at the time, and on the verge of being cut.

Realizing Still’s situation the Bengals decided to place him on the practice squad so they could pay for his daughter’s bills. Hearing about Still’s daughter on the radio, Saints coach Sean Payton immediately purchased 100 Still jerseys. The proceeds from Still’s jerseys go to children staying at the same hospital as Leah. As a result the Bengals team store has sold nearly 10,000 jerseys.

The Still’s received even more good news after the entire tumor was removed from Leah, when doctors previously had concerns about its removal.

The Bengal’s, and fans that showed support, should be applauded for their humility. The NFL, has been dealing with public relations issues, but this is a reminder that some things are bigger than football.
