Many activists in Hong Kong have dared to confront police during recent pro-democracy demonstrations. In fact, more than 500 protesters stood their ground against authorities by refusing to leave a sit-in in early July and were arrested for it.  
But some of those same people are struggling to muster similar courage at the dinner table to argue with their parents about political reform. 
The older generation tends to support the status quo; they believe protests and occupations will bring political and economic instability. The younger generation are determined to fight for genuine democracy risking their future careers. This tension is usually reflected in conversation during family meals.
China has promised Hong Kong a direct vote for the next chief executive in 2017 instead of election via committee, but insists that a committee approve the candidates. Former British colony Hong Kong is a special administrative region of China and enjoys a high level of autonomy from the communist country under the idea of “one country, two systems.” 
Given that China considers “love of country” to be an important criteria for Hong Kong’s administrators, according to a recently released white paper from the government, protesters suspect Hong Kong will only have pro-Beijing candidates to choose from, defeating the purpose of a direct vote.

El arte y la naturaleza, una combinación que va de maravilla!

Todo en perfecta armonía hace que luzca genial, pero aquí te dejamos una muestra de lo que hablamos. Cuando el arte y la naturaleza se complementas pueden crear imágenes realmente increíbles e ingeniosas.

Me van a disculpar, pero, ¿por qué no le cayeron esos misiles que usaron para asesinar a los inocentes en el vuelo MH17 en Ucrania, a los aviones donde viaja el tirano de Maduro o alguno de sus aliados? La causa es justa, la realidad es injusta.

Una granja vertical en Salvador (Brasil)

Es un concepto de la agricultura para cultivar plantas dentro de edificios de varios pisos o rascacielos, llamados a menudo farmscrapers. 
Una introducción a gran escala de esta tecnología permitiría multiplicar la superficie cultivable prácticamente sin gasto de superficie, lo que permitiría revertir varios campos a su estado natural. Además, los defensores del concepto argumentan que se reducirían de manera considerable los costos de transporte y logística por el hecho de que las granjas verticales estarían emplazadas en la cercanía directa de los consumidores.
Según Dickson Despommier (precursor), una granja vertical de 30 pisos podría alimentar a más de 10.000 personas.
