The growing number of Chinese choosing to remain single may worry many of their parents, but the phenomenon has created ample opportunities for retail and service providers.
Many of them now target singles – who often have sizable disposabl
e incomes as a result of fewer family commitments – with products that suit their lifestyles.
Chen Xi, 29, a fashion industry consultant in Shanghai, said she has bought many products in recent years that
have been customized for singles, including a rice cooker, an oven, a refrigerator and a washing machine.
“These products come in smaller sizes than usual, which are perfect f
or people who live alone like me. I’m glad there seem to be more products on the market tha
t can improve quality of life and make things more convenient for single people,” she said.
Harry instructed his spokesperson to issue a statement in November 2016 before the couple married, calling out “the racial

Yomi Adegoke, author of Slay in Your Lane: The Black Girl Bible, said Meghan was very much a departure from what most people associate with the British royal family.
”She’s foreign, not just by being American, but she’s got black heritage, she’s a divorcee,” Adegoke said.
”She’s just a very different type of person and somebody that I don’t think your average British member of the public t
hinks of when they think of the word duchess or royal family at all.”Much of the trolling exploits the cla
ims of a rift between Meghan and her sister-in-law, the Duchess of Cambridge. Where Kate is lauded by the media for expo
sing her shoulder in a dress, Meghan is accused by the tabloids of breaking royal protocol for doing similar.
When Meghan wears dark nail polish, the “vulgar fashion move” is criticized for breaki
ng royal protocol “again.” Meanwhile, Kate is said to opt for “subtle” shades more in keeping with the Queen’s preferences.

Rage at life stripped of any apparent hope that things will get better is a clear motivation for the riots that gripped the country that began two days before Roberto was killed on February 9.
Promises from the Prime Minister might serve to dilute some of that immediate anger. But the country is teetering on the brink of more chaos, with further protests being threatened by opposition leaders.
But the rule of law in the form of government has already largely slipped away in the slums, which have become no-go areas for police.
Roberto’s death has reinforced a widespread view among the poor that the state is their enemy.
A sad irony — given that his ambition had always been to be a policeman.
Bhumibol Adulyadej and sister of the present King, married an American and relinquished her title in 1972. After returning to Th
ailand in 2001 following her divorce, she resumed royal duties and enjoyed prestige among the Thai people, although her royal title has not yet been restored.
Around 20 military coups have taken place in Thailand since the country became a constitutional mo
narchy in 1932. The Constitution was also amended in 2017 during the military government’s rule.
In this context, the Thai Raksa Chart party (Thai Save The Nation, or TSN) tried to break the v
icious circle in Thailand’s politics by nominating Ubolratana as the prime ministerial candid
ate. The probability of her winning the election would have been high if she were allowed to contest. Her victory would have brought back political sta
bility to some extent. TSN is linked to former Thai leader Thaksin Shinawatra, who enjoys popular appeal in the country. Thaksin carried out several pol
icies that benefited the grass roots and won him their support. Even though he was ousted in 2006, his influence remains strong.
In the upcoming election, I believe pro-Thaksin parties can still have high public app
roval ratings. But considering the latest military-drafted constitution which gives considerable
rights to bureaucrats and military, it is still not known whether a pro-Thaksin politician can be elected prime minister.
