An ancient Olympia police station official told Reuters the four had been detained, but not arrested. They had unfurled a Tibetan flag and hung a banner reading "Free Hong Kong - Revolution" from the Acropolis monument. More protests are expected on Tuesday when the flame will be handed over in Athens to Beijing Games organisers.

Twenty-eight of these ancient viruses were unknown to science. The viruses, which were found in an ice core collected in 2015, were able to survive in the ice for thousands of years. Older viruses, and more complex organisms, have been revived from the ice beforeAlthough reviving ancient viruses sounds like the start of an apocalypse movie, there's little need to worry.

That adjustment – which took effect early Saturday morning – also means that way more cash is going to the bitcoin miners who remain online. "This will be a revenue party for miners," said bitcoin mining engineer Brandon Arvanaghi. Mining made easierA bitcoin miner runs a program on a computer to try to solve a puzzle before anyone else does. China had long been the epicenter of bitcoin miners, with past estimates indicating that 65% to 75% of the world's bitcoin mining happened there, but a government-led crackdown has effectively banished the country's crypto miners. "We are expecting a period of much higher mining profitability for Compass Mining clients," said Whit Gibbs, CEO and founder of Compass, a bitcoin mining service provider.

REUTERS/Tingshu Wang/File PhotoBEIJING, June 23 (Reuters) - U.S. electric vehicle maker Tesla Inc (TSLA.O) has opened a solar-powered charging station with on-site power storage in the Tibetan capital Lhasa, the company said in a Weibo post on Wednesday, its first such facility in China. China is Tesla's second-biggest market, but the charging site is its first in the country with dedicated solar power and on-site power storage. The company's solar services include Solar Roof, a power generating system meant to look like normal roof tiles, and Powerwall, which can store power generated by solar panels. Last year, Tesla, which makes electric vehicles in Shanghai, put out job advertisements for solar and energy storage project managers in China.

Caterpillar fungus is a hybrid of a fungus that kills and lives in caterpillars. But this rare hybrid, the caterpillar fungus, isn't just totally fascinating, it's also expensive. Caterpillar fungus grows in the remote Tibetan Plateau and Himalayan Mountains but that's not the only place you can find it. In fact, experts say that up to 80% of household income in the Tibetan Plateau and Himalayas can come from selling caterpillar fungus. One district in Nepal reported collecting $4.7 million worth of caterpillar fungus in 2016.

China is broadening a political education campaign as it celebrates the 70th anniversary of its control over Tibet. Asked who his spiritual leader was, a monk at Lhasa's historic Jokhang temple named Xi. "The posters coincide with a massive political education programme which is called 'feeling gratitude to the party' education," said Robert Barnett, a Tibetan studies veteran scholar at the University of London's School of Oriental and African Studies. Photos of the spiritual leader are now strictly banned, according to rights groups and Tibetans who have since left the region. The foreign ministry repeated China's position that the Dalai Lama was "attempting to separate Tibet from China."

REUTERS/Thomas PeterChina will uphold the leadership of the Communist Party in Tibet to further its economic development, and guide Tibetan society in accordance to socialism, the region's top official said on Saturday. The Dalai Lama fled Tibet in 1959 following a failed uprising against Chinese rule. "First and foremost we must uphold the leadership of the Communist Party of China," said Tibet's Party Secretary Wu Yingjie at a news conference in Beijing. "Since the peaceful liberation of Tibet in 1951, everyone has discovered that only with party leadership can Tibet continue on this road of prosperous development," Wu said. China has rebuffed attempts by the CTA to reopen a dialogue since 2010, and Beijing maintains that the Dalai Lama is a separatist.

In 1959, Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama fled into exile, following a failed uprising against Chinese rule. The CTA and Tibetan advocacy groups have received a boost in international support amid rising criticism of China's human rights record, particularly from the United States. Tsering reiterated that when the 14th Dalai Lama passes he will only be reincarnated in a "free country", according to his wishes. "Why are they so concerned with the 15th Dalai Lama?" "The 14th Dalai Lama is still living and he wishes to go to China ... the Chinese government leaders need to learn about Buddhism first."

Forty years ago, a Tibetan monk wandered into the holy Baishiya Karst Cave and stumbled across a jawbone. Denisovans occupied the cave for 100,000 yearsThe opening of Baishiya Karst Cave on the Tibetan Plateau cave is about 16 feet high and 23 feet wide. This Denisovan jawbone was found in Tibet's Baishiya Karst Cave. Denisovans passed on the genes that enabled them to handle Tibet's high altitudesThe Baishiya Karst Cave is today a Buddhist holy site. Some people in Tibet today also possess some Denisovan DNA — and those genetic traits may help Sherpas weather high altitudes.

REUTERS/Thomas PeterSHANGHAI (Reuters) - The head of the Tibetan government in exile has visited the U.S. White House for the first time in six decades, a move that could further infuriate Beijing, which has accused the United States of trying to destabilise the region. Lobsan Sangay, President of the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA), was invited to the White House to meet the newly appointed U.S. Special Coordinator for Tibetan Issues, Robert Destro, on Friday, the CTA said in a press release. Tibet has become one of the areas of dispute between the United States and China, with relations between the world’s two biggest economies at their lowest point in decades. U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo accused Beijing in July of violating Tibetan human rights and said Washington supported “meaningful autonomy” for the region. Beijing officials have since accused the United States of using Tibet to try to promote “splittism” in China.
