Around a thousand demonstrators staged a peaceful protest at Hong Kong Airport on Friday, handing out leaflets and carrying signs emblazoned with slogans in multiple languages aiming to build international support for Hong Kong's pro-democracy movement. Mass demonstrations have gripped Hong Kong over the past two months, with millions of people taking to the streets in protests sparked by a controversial extradition bill, but which have evolved into a larger movement against the city's leadership. "We have made stickers, banners in over 16 languages, ranging from Japanese to Spanish," one demonstrator told Reuters news agency at the airport on Friday. "We want to spread our message internationally. We are not rioters. We are a group of Hong Kong people fighting for human rights and freedom."

By Vaibhav Datar Ever wondered how people communicated with each other in ancient times, when there was no verbal language? Communication was mostly through gestures and body language. But as verbal language evolved, we got more dependent upon the words we speak and with time, lost the ability to listen to our inner voice. Having said that, humans have still not lost the ability to decipher unspoken messages completely. We still have a wonderful tool called intuition. In fact, there was a study done to understand whether body language is a learnt skill or inborn. The study compared blind athletes (born blind) with regular athletes. Every time a winner completed his run, his hands went out and head went up, irrespective of whether he was blind or not.

Children are like sponge, absorbing completely from their … [Read more...] about How to teach your kids non-verbal communication
