What We're Watching - Protests and more protests

Sudan crackdown - Witnesses say government-aligned Sudanese paramilitaries have thrown dozens of bodies into the Nile to try to hide the number of pro-democracy protesters they've killed in Khartoum this week. More than 100 people have reportedly been killed during the crackdown that followed the protesters' refusal to accept a military-controlled transition to elections and a civilian government. In April, the demonstrators forced an end to the 30-year reign of President Omar al-Bashir.

Fury in Honduras - Security forces have responded with live ammunition to nationwide protests led by doctors and teachers demanding the resignation of President Juan Orlando Hernández. The demonstrators accuse the deeply unpopular Hernández, a key US ally in Central America, of both incompetence and corruption following proposed cuts to public services and fresh revelations that he's been the subject of a US Drug Enforcement Administration trafficking investigation.

Protests in Prague - In one of the largest Czech protests in decades, demonstrators in Prague's Wenceslas Square have called for the resignation of Prime Minister Andrej Babiš, who has been accused of misusing EU subsidies. Czech police say he should face fraud charges, but Babiš — a wealthy businessman elected in 2017 — insists that the size of the protest, estimated by organizers at 120,000 people, revealed more about the nice weather than about his political future.

What We're Ignoring - Inflatable assassination

The Attack on Baby Trump - A British Donald Trump supporter has filmed herself attacking London's famous 20-foot-tall inflatable baby Trump balloon with a knife. You can see her adventure here. It appears the attacker herself was more seriously wounded than Baby Trump. "I'm bleeding quite badly," she's heard saying during the clip, while a journalist at the scene reported that "Trump Baby was only lightly wounded in today's attack and stands at full pressurization."

Coffee is one of the most popular drinks in the world, but that means it creates a lot of waste in the form of cups and used coffee grinds. Every year, we drink out of 600 billion single-use plastic and paper cups, most of which end up in a landfill or our environment. Could coffee also contribute to a more sustainable future? A German company is now recovering leftover coffee grounds from bars, restaurants and hotels, and it's recycling them into reusable coffee cups. In other words, they're creating cups of coffee made from coffee.

What technology was used to assist Eliud Kipchoge's historic sub two-hour marathon time?

A lot. If you watched the video of him, you saw that he was within a pace group, a whole bunch of runners in front of him cutting the wind. Some runners behind him, actually improving his wind resistance by having people behind him. There was a green laser showing him exactly what time he had to run. He had really high-tech gels that he took, these Maurten gels. I actually like those a lot, too. But the main thing were the shoes. These are the early prototypes of the shoes or the first version. He's now in the third version. But what's most important is there is a carbon fiber plate. You cannot bend this thing. So, Nike introduced these shoes, I don't know, two years ago. Now, there's a new generation. It's very controversial.

Will the Catalonia question be a big issue in the Spanish election coming up in November?

You bet it will. Passions have been further inflamed now, and the question that has been difficult from the very beginning, by the very heavy prison sentences that was given to those that are accused of sedition, that is organizing the independence referendum. So, passions are heating up. It will be a difficult issue for the entire Spanish political system to handle for years to come.

You'd think, being the relatively hopeful person that you are, that the nauseating anguish of Brexit would be more or less over now that UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson has finally reached a deal with Brussels on how to extricate the UK from the European Union.
