Icy buckets
Blowing up online right now is something called the ice bucket challenge. The whole thing is a good will stunt set up for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis or ALS research. This disease attacks the brain and spinal cord of its victims. The ice bucket challenge is where people take a video of themselves having ice water dunked on top of them. After successful completion of the challenge the video maker can challenge someone else to either complete the stunt or donate money to ALS research. Most people do both. This sensation has even spread all the way to China. Right now the challenge has brought in over $30 million for ALS research worldwide.

Crazy opening ceremony
The youth Olympics are happening right now in Nanjing! Similar to the summer Olympics, the youth Olympics gathers the world's best youngsters to compete in sports! The goal of it is to bring the world together. While not as popular as it's adult version, China went full-stop with the Nanjing youth Olympics by creating a ridiculously entertaining opening ceremony.

Jackie! One mo thing
Jaycee Chan, yes his name is Jaycee, was detained by Beijing police earlier this week over marijuana. Chan the son of famous Hong Kong action superstar Jackie Chan was smoking marijuana with Taiwanese actor Ko Chen-Tung. The two were taken in by police for marijuana consumption. Police also found over 100 grams of marijuana in the younger Chan's Beijing Home. The younger Chan is currently held under the crime of harbouring drug users, but he could be charged with more serious crimes. The moral of the story is to avoid drugs. Drugs are bad. Avoid drugs.
