    Why Hong Kong Is Facing a Recession Amid Protests and Trade Wars | WSJ

    – [Narrator] Hong Kong is facing its first recession since the global financial crisis in 2008. Influenced by unprecedented factors. Including its own ongoing anti-government protests and the trade stalemate between Washington and Beijing. In February, the government predicted Hong Kong’s economy would grow up to 3% this year. Six months later, that forecast was slashed to zero to 1%. (speaking in foreign language) Since June, the city’s tourism industry has suffered from the increasingly violent and disruptive pro-democracy protests. In August, normally a strong month for tourism, arrivals in Hong Kong dropped nearly 40% from a year ago. It’s the worst decline since May, 2003 when Hong Kong was…

    Travel Journal Flip Through – 6 Months in Europe

    Hey friends it’s Tamsien from Babbling Books. I’m really excited to share with you my travel journal. I traveled around Europe for six months and during that time I kept a journal of all of the different places that I went to. I used a modified form of bullet journaling and I’m going to take you through page by page the entire journal.

So this is a very basic floppy covered Moleskine journal…

    A Crime You Admit To… Is Still a Crime – Between the Scenes | The Daily Show

    – I will say, this is probably one of the more interesting aspects of every single Trump scandal is that unlike most politician’s scandals, Trump’s scandals play out both in like a clandestine way and in a very open way. And that confuses journalists and media I’ve noticed because a lot of people fall into the trap of being like, “Yeah, but he said it in public, “so does that mean it’s wrong?” It’s like, “Yeah.” Just because you say your crime in public doesn’t mean that it’s no longer a crime. That’s not how it works, it’s just we’re used to people who have levels of shame and so…

    Blizzard Chose Tyranny (The Jimquisition)

    (steam hissing) (monster groans) (flame roars) ♪ We’re born different ♪ ♪ We’re born innocent ♪ ♪ We’re born perfect ♪ – I thought tyranny would be more snappier, but that was after Justin did these credits and he’s asleep now, so. (pops mouth) There we go. Because we’re talking about the Hong Kong protests and the Blitzchung this week, I thought I’d wear a mask like the protests and like Blitzchung did. But I didn’t think ahead and get a proper one, so I’m wearing a “Halloween III: Season of the Witch” mask. Big up democracy. Suppression of speech, censor of the media, harassment of the journalists and political…
