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.

Woman Marries Her Brother! She Learned Her Family History A Little Too Late…

Imagine being with someone for 7 years and having a 6-year-old daughter together then learning you’re related. The wife, Adriana, 39, was given up for adoption at the age of one so she didn’t know who her blood relatives.  She connected with her biological mother with the assistance of  a Brazilian radio station.  Adriana learned after reuniting with her mother that she had a half-brother who turned out to be her husband.

Adriana’s brother Leandro, 37, was born two years before her; their mother gave them both up for adoption. They couple didn’t realize their connection even though they were aware their mother shared a common name.

 

According to reports, the couple do not intend to split and will continue their marriage.

In a very tough battle that remained scoreless in regulation time, Germany was able to pull out a victory against Argentina in the World Cup Final with a score of 1-0.

Both sides played tough and had many good shots, but both defenses would not let up.

Not until the 113th minute would Germany score. Schweinsteiger centered the ball to Mario Gotze who would then drill the ball into the goal with his left. The 22-year-old did not even start for Germany’s last three games.

For Argentina, it was too little, too late. The last play of the game was a free kick from Lionel Messi which sailed over the crossbar in the 123rd minute.

Colombia’s James Rodriguez was rewarded the Golden Boot as he scored 6 times throughout the World Cup.

The host for the next World Cup in 2018 will be Russia.
