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.

Honey Maid Takes Political Stance

In March of 2014, Honey Maid released an ad titled This is Wholesome. The commercial features different families, most prominently featuring two dads and their two children. Other families include a mixed race couple, a single dad, a tattooed ‘rocker’ family, and a military couple. Overlaying clips of these families laughing and sharing Nabisco snacks is the tagline of the ad: “No matter how things change, what makes us wholesome never will. Honey Maid. Everyday wholesome snacks for every wholesome family. This is wholesome.”

Honey Maid: This is Wholesome

This 30 second commercial spurred a storm of response and reaction. Leading the charge of voices against Honey Maid is the conservative activism group One Million Moms. The organization released a statement titled Honey Maid Offends Conservatives, stating Nabisco “should be ashamed of themselves” for their “attempt to normalize sin”. One Million Moms concluded the statement with a call to action: “Please send U.S. key executives for Honey Maid and Nabisco (owned by Mondelez International) an email urging them to pull this liberal commercial immediately and remain neutral in the culture war.”

Nabisco’s response to the conservative backlash their commercial received came last week. On April 3rd, Honey Maid: Love was released on YouTube.
