Hong Kong protesters defy anti-mask law
Thousands of protesters marched through the streets of Hong Kong over the weekend. Many wearing masks, they defied a new anti-mask law introduced by the city’s leader, who invoked emergency powers as demonstrations grew increasingly violent.

Tear gas, petrol bombs and mass arrests in Hong Kong

Police fire shot, water cannons in Hong Kong protests
For the first time in 12 weekends of anti-government protests in Hong Kong, a police officer fired a warning shot during clashes with demonstrators on Sunday. Earlier in the day, police also deployed water cannons for the first time, threatening to use them in order to disperse hundreds of protesters who had occupied a road following a march.

Blood, brains and more hotpot gems
The Chinese aren’t wasteful when it comes to food. There’s barely a part of an animal that won’t be eaten, somehow. In the colder months, many of the more unusual (well, unusual in the West) parts make their way to hotpot – thin slices of meat and vegetables cooked by diners at the table in a variety of simmering broths. Offal, including the stomach, intestines, blood and brains can all end up as hotpot ingredients. Some are prized for their texture, some for their taste… and some are said to be good to you. They may not look like the most appetizing thing on the menu, but ordering these items shows you’re a true nose-to-tail hotpot connoisseur.

How Macau’s famous custard egg tarts were invented
The Portuguese egg tart is a must-eat for visitors to the city of Macau, located on China’s southern coast. The sweet, soft tart consists of a baked egg custard inside a flaky case, caramelized on top. They’re close cousins of the Hong Kong-style egg tarts found in dim sum restaurants and Chinatowns across the world. But the name is misleading. The Portuguese egg tart is actually a 100% Macanese creation, invented by a Brit in Macau. Eileen Stow, sister to Andrew Stow, who invented the treat in 1979, tells us about its origins and how it grew to become one of Macau’s most popular snacks.

40 years ago, one man opened China to the world
Forty years ago, China was a poverty-stricken nation riven by conflict and left stagnant after decades of war. Today, it is the world’s second-biggest economy. China’s economy has developed more rapidly than any other country in history, and it’s mostly down to an idea from one man: the late paramount leader Deng Xiaoping, who introduced capitalist reforms into the communist economy in 1978. In the 40 years since Deng’s “reform and opening up policy,” China has completely transformed. But development has come at a price. Watch our video above to find out more.

Trump accuses China of meddling in US elections
President Donald Trump has accused China of trying to meddle in the November 2018 midterm elections. Speaking at the United Nations, Trump offered no immediate evidence to support his claim, saying only that “it will come out.” China was quick to hit back. Foreign Minister Wang Yi told the UN that Trump’s accusation was “unwarranted.” The comments came as the countries are embroiled in an increasingly bitter trade war that has cost each side billions of dollars in tariffs.

Why the trade war is targeting China’s tech drive
The trade war between the US and China is heating up once again, after a new round of $200 billion in US tariffs has been announced. One of the main points of contention has been China’s “Made in China 2025” initiative, which looks to make the nation a leader in high-tech industries within the next decade. Here’s why the Made in China plan has become such a contentious issue.

The South China Sea dispute, explained
In a trilateral meeting in Singapore on Saturday, officials from the US, Australia and Japan have expressed their concerns about developments in the South China Sea. US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Australian Minister for Foreign Affairs Julie Bishop and her Japanese counterpart Taro Kono issued a joint statement after the Trilateral Strategic Dialogue in opposition to "coercive unilateral actions that could alter the status quo and increase tensions."

US carriers comply with China’s demands
Time is up on Beijing’s deadline for foreign airlines to fall into step with its demands. China wants them to recognize Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macau as part of China, in a demand that expires on July 25. Hong Kong and Macau are both highly autonomous regions governed by China, whereas Taiwan is a self-ruled island which China sees as a province to be brought back into the fold. China warned of “severe consequences” if airlines didn’t comply… and most, including major US carriers, seem to be playing ball. This isn’t the only area China is pushing to comply. The eyewear, fashion and hotel industries have also been the targets of China’s wrath.
