The Occupy movement has been dragging on for over 50 days now and many are watching anxiously to see when and how it will end, and how our society, now so divided, can heal, as well as how we can move forward on political reform.

Young Hong Kong singer Gloria Tang Zhi-kei, better known as G.E.M., recently made her mark in a popular mainland singing contest. Though a rising star in Hong Kong, she was unknown to most on the mainland, yet after the first two rounds of the contest, the number of her Weibo fans shot up by 170,000 in a day and has now reached six million.

The landmark ruling by the Court of Final Appeal on CSSA has sent shock waves across the city and further divided society. If nothing is done to address the situation, those mainland migrants who benefit financially from the ruling may suffer in the end, as they will find it harder to integrate into Hong Kong society.
