DePaulo said the increase in the number of singl

households has implications for all aspects of society, and more things will need to change as the single population continues to grow.

For example, she cited how food is sold.

“Supermarkets can’t just offer big family-sized packages of things,” she said, and prices on th

ings also need to be fair so “single people should not be charged more per person than couples are”.

“The way we value other people also has to change,” DePaulo added.

Like most fathers, I have kept up the habit of buying cartoon books for my baby

girl, who is now one year old, to encourage her to develop an interest in the outside world.

However, as I opened a new box of books last week, I thought I had placed the wrong order. O

n the cover of the first book the boldly colored headline jumped out: Quantum Physics. The second book I picked

up was titled Quarks. The third one, Aerospace Engineering, looked a little more practical at first glance. However, it w

as only after much closer examination of the cover that I found two much smaller words prefixing each of the headlines: Baby Loves.

Apple, in rare reversal, pulls plug on wireless charging mat

Apple Inc on Friday said it is canceling the AirPower wireless charging mat that the company anno

unced in 2017 on the same day as its iPhone X, a rare public retreat for the gadget maker known for splashy product launches.

The mat was intended to wirelessly charge up to three Apple products at once, such as an iPhone, Apple Watch and AirPods wireless headphones.

While wireless charging has spread through the gadget industry, cha

rging three devices at once with higher wattage “fast charging” has proved challenging. Fur

niture seller Ikea, for example, sells a $60 matt that can handle three phones but it only features slower 5-watt charging.

In a statement, Apple said that it had concluded that its AirPower mat “will not achieve our high standards.”

“We apologize to those customers who were looking forward to this l

aunch,” Dan Riccio, Apple’s senior vice president of Hardware Engineering, said in the state

ment. “We continue to believe that the future is wireless and are committed to push the wireless experience forward.”

We grow high-quality dendrobium without samake a livi

logical environment, allowing the villagers to make a living from the mount

ains,” said Ruan, who introduced the medicinal herb to the forest after a thorough investigation.

Oaks in the village have rough, thick barks, rich in water

and nutrients, making it easier for the dendrobium to attach to the trees and absorb more nutrients.

Since 2013, the company has planted dendrobium on the tree trunks of more than 267 hectares of oak forest.

For a long time, however, transportation difficulties meant the landloc

ked village could not capitalize on its unique ecological advantage. Growing dend

robium officinale was something villagers, including 44-year-old Chen Jian, had never thought of.

“All the oaks are ‘cash cows’ now,” Chen said. “Natural forests cannot be cut, so we did nothing but protect them in the past. Eve

since the dendrobium were ‘planted’ on the tree trunks, the green hills that we have kept for decades have turned into gold.”

Located in Anlong county, in Guizhou’s Qiannan Buyei and Miao autonomous prefect

ure, Zhegui is rich in forestry resources and has a climate that is neither too hot in summer nor too cold in winter.

Dream lifestyles in Dali end in disappointment

“If you are not satisfied with your life and don’t know why you have lost your smile; if you are unhappy and don’t like being where you are, go west – with Dali your destination.”

These lyrics form part of a song in the Chinese blockbuster movie Breakup Buddies, wh

ich was shot mostly in Dali, an attractive city in Yunnan province, and released in 2014.

The film inspired many middle-income earners tired of the hustle and bustle of urban life to quit their jobs in big cities and move to Dali.

However, unlike in Breakup Buddies, many people’s dreams of finding a

better life in Dali – which has provided the perfect backdrop for romantic trysts in hun

dreds of movies – have not had happy endings, and they are beginning to leave for a variety of reasons.

Chu Xiaogui, an author of popular books who moved to Dali from Beijing with her husba

nd in December 2015, said she had since witnessed many friends leaving and returning to their hometowns.

Vietnamese truck enters China via the Second Beilun River

The bridge will greatly alleviate traffic burden on the First Beilun River Bridge three kilomet

ers away, which was previously the only means of shipping personnel and cargo to or from Dongxing Checkpoint.

Statistics from immigration authorities show that 12.19 million people and 47,056 vehicles passed over the old bridge in 2018, far beyond its maximum capacity.

The new bridge is now designated for freight vehicles, while the First Be

ilun River Bridge is reserved for personnel. This could save 30 minutes or more in custo

ms clearance time for each consignment, according to Huang Xiong, deputy chief of Dongxing Customs.

1.jpgIn early 2015, the Barack Obama administration tried desperately to block the United King

dom and several other European countries from joining the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank by ac

cusing, without any basis, the then newly established bank of possible low environmental and governance standards.

The real reason, according to former US treasury secretary Larry Summers, was that the Obama adm

inistration could not secure any funding from the Republican-controlled Congress to join the AIIB. And to s

ave itself from embarrassment, the US administration tried to prevent European countries from joining the bank.
