More than 10 journalists are barred from covering events this week marking the 25th anniversary of Hong Kong’s return to China. Authorities are citing “security reasons" for denying their access. The Hong Kong Journalists Association said the journalists represent at least seven media outlets, including international news agencies Reuters and Agence France-Presse, as well as some local news outlets. The affected media organizations were invited to send other journalists to cover the event, though they must also meet the quarantine and testing requirements. The journalists association said the rejections undermine freedom of the press in the city. China's president is visiting the city for the anniversary of the former British colony’s return to Chinese rule on July 1, 1997.

Health officials in South Korea have approved the country's first domestically developed COVID-19 vaccine for people 18 years or older, adding another public health tool in the fight against a prolonged pandemic. In clinical trials involving some 4,000 participants in South Korea and five other countries, SK Bioscience’s two-dose SKYCovione vaccine appeared to be more effective than the broadly used AstraZeneca shots in building immunity against infections, officials said Wednesday. It isn’t immediately clear how officials will administer the newly developed vaccine, which was designed for the original version of the coronavirus, not the more transmissible omicron variant that wreaked havoc in the country earlier this year.

New York’s recreational marijuana market is beginning to sprout, literally. Thin-leafed plants are stretching toward the sun in farms around the state. In a novel move, New York gave 203 CBD hemp growers first shot at cultivating marijuana destined for legal sales, which could start by the end of the year. Big indoor growers are expected to join later. Giving a head start to hemp growers is an unusual way to gear up a marijuana market. States typically rely initially on their existing medical growers, like New Jersey did for its launch earlier this year.

The Supreme Court's ruling allowing states to regulate abortion has set off a travel scramble in some parts of the U.S.,  as abortion providers redirect patients to states that still allow the procedure. A growing number of states are moving to mostly banning abortion. Clinics operators are moving, doctors are counseling crying patients, donations are pouring into nonprofits and one group is dispatching vans to administer abortion pills. Some cities _ like Kansas City and St. Louis _ also are drafting plans to help with the travel logistics. Groups are trying to help with everything from gas cards for travel to connecting patients with small aircraft pilots willing to transport them to a clinic in another state.

Take your breakfast to the next level by trying this unlikely topping like @ashka_vaidya. Before adding the cream cheese, make a spicy honey with sriracha.

While these braided rolls from @elanneboake aren’t technically a traditional bagel, we think they could have a moment similar to the cronut. Think of them like baby challah topped with your favorite bagel seasoning.
