Cost of raising children in China second-highest in world, thinktank reveals
Wed, 21 Feb 2024 17:55:48 GMT

Expense and challenge of balancing work and family life key factors in declining birthrate and shrinking population

China is one of the most expensive places in the world to raise a child, outstripping the US and Japan in relative terms, a prominent Chinese thinktank has said.

A report released on Wednesday by the Beijing-based YuWa Population Research Institute found that the average cost of raising a child in China until the age of 18 is 538,000 yuan (£59,275) – more than 6.3 times as high as its GDP per capita, compared with 4.11 times in the US or 4.26 times in Japan.

Thu, 22 Feb 2024 05:25:35 GMT

Visitors to next year’s world exposition in Japan could find themselves spending a penny in toilets that cost more than £1m to build, with recent construction estimates for restrooms sparking a row over the event’s spiralling costs.

Japanese media reported this week that some of the 40-plus bathrooms being built at the site in Osaka, a port city in the west of the country, will cost as much as ¥200m (£1.05m).

Growth in CO2 emissions leaves China likely to miss climate targets
Thu, 22 Feb 2024 00:01:37 GMT

Carbon intensity of the country’s economy remains high, despite rapid improvements in clean energy output

China is off track on all of its core 2025 climate targets, despite the fact that clean energy is now the biggest driver of the country’s economic growth, analysis has found.

After years of extraordinarily rapid growth, China is now grappling with a slowdown that is causing ripples internally and internationally. The government has supercharged the growth of the renewable energy industry but it has imultaneously poured stimulus funds into construction and manufacturing, and continues to approve coal power.

China holds the key to speeding up debt relief and ending the “silent crisis” that is holding back attempts to tackle poverty in the world’s poorest countries, a senior World Bank official has said.

Ayhan Kose, the Bank’s deputy chief economist, said Beijing needed to be more active in negotiations to provide financial support for those countries already in, or close to, debt distress.

Girl dies after sand hole at Florida beach collapses on her
Thu, 22 Feb 2024 00:34:58 GMT

Five-year-old Sloan Mattingly of Indiana was buried in a rare but deadly event unknown to many Americans

The collapse of sand holes, like the one that killed a five-year-old Indiana girl who was digging with her brother on a Florida beach, is an under-recognized danger that kills and injures several children a year around the country.

Sloan Mattingly died Tuesday afternoon at Lauderdale-by-the-Sea’s beach when a 4-5ft-deep (1-1.5-metre) hole collapsed on her and her seven-year-old brother, Maddox. The boy was buried up to his chest, but the girl was fully covered. Video taken by a bystander shows about 20 adults trying to dig her out using their hands and plastic pails, but the hole kept collapsing on itself.

Prosecutors in Washington state said on Wednesday they will not file felony charges against a Seattle police officer who struck and killed a graduate student from India while responding to an overdose call – a case that attracted widespread attention after another officer was recorded making callous remarks about it.

Officer Kevin Dave was driving 74mph (119km/h) on a street with a 25mph (40km/h) speed limit in a police SUV before he hit 23-year-old Jaahnavi Kandula in a crosswalk on 23 January 2023.

England braced for trial by spin in make-or-break fourth India Test
Wed, 21 Feb 2024 18:00:30 GMT

Tourists arrive in MS Dhoni’s backyard hoping for the kind of response to back-to-back defeats they found in last year’s Ashes

There is a case to say that but for a young MS Dhoni being persuaded to set aside his ambitions as a goalkeeper in football to focus on cricket – the catalyst for a remarkable career captured in a Bollywood biopic – India and England might not be playing a Test match in his native Ranchi this week.

This is slightly over-egging things, the locals say. While the state of Jharkhand and its cricket association were formed at the turn of the century, the handsome 39,000-seater ground built 12 years ago owes plenty to the late Amitabh Choudhary, a prominent administrator from the city who, along with Dhoni, has a pavilion named after him.

‘It becomes a great talking point’: two business owners on why they need only an iPhone to take payments
Thu, 25 Jan 2024 10:59:33 GMT

When a restaurateur and a store owner got rid of their card readers, they not only saved money and became more efficient – but also added the ‘wow factor’ to their payments

For Elouise Lashley, running a restaurant with her fiance Adian Montaque is fun. “It’s all about having boundaries and respecting each other,” says the co-owner of Birmingham’s Adian’s Tropical Fusion. “He knows the cooking and the kitchen, and I deal with the front of house and reservations. Our different skills make us well-rounded. Plus our work ethic and passion are one and the same.”

The couple opened their restaurant – which offers dishes ranging from jerk salmon with a mango, passionfruit and yuzu dressing, to a mac-and-cheese pie – after they’d spent a combined four decades working in hospitality for other people. They wanted to reconnect with their roots and reflect the diversity of their city, while elevating Caribbean food, says Lashley. “We wanted to integrate bold flavours and ingredients from Asia, India and other tropical areas, to encourage customers to try something a bit different. Food is a vessel that brings people together.”
