Some have blackened their profile photos on Facebook and Twitter in protest of the heavy-handed police response to a demonstration at government headquarters.
A protester listens next to a painting inside of Parliament during a demonstration in Taipei on March 20, 2014. Hundreds of Taiwanese activists were locked in a tense standoff with police after they stormed parliament to try to stop the government ratifying a contentious trade agreement with China.

Research has shown that in Shanxi, many of those abandoned babies are “defective” because of the acute pollution. Toxins produced by burning coal and chemicals that have seeped into the soil and water supply have increased the risk of giving birth to children with special needs by 450 percent…”
Anyone and everyone who’s adventured across China on a train will know that it’s not just about getting from point A to point B; it’s about the journey itself and the people you meet along the way. Wang Fuchun took this to the next level ever since the 1970’s.- http://bit.ly/17Q6eas
