Joshua Wong is a bespectacled 17-year-old who became a household name for his fearless crusade against the ill-fated national education curriculum at the age of 15. Today, he is at the forefront of Hong Kong’s fight for universal suffrage. The SCMP’s multimedia team spoke to Wong recently and produced this profile where he speaks about how he became involved in the city’s democratic movements. (Part I of III)

Over the years the wild monkeys in northern Hong Kong’s parks have become popular tourist attractions. This masks the growing problems associated with a massive population explosion. A government sterilisation programme has cut the number of monkeys to 2,000. Visitors should be aware there have been isolated but increasing reports of people being attacked by monkeys. 529 complaints were reported in 2013, usually attacks attempting to steal food. There have also been increasing reports of monkeys straying into urban areas.

To help explain the differing opinions and terms being used, we asked several of those involved — either for Occupy Central, or against it — a few questions.

Bluegrass covers of pop and rock music abound abound. But none have quite the back story of The Henhouse Prowlers’ version of “Chop My Money,”a cover of a Nigerian hip-hop mega-hit that created a frenzy in the country when the band toured there this summer.

We love this story!!
