Sales of anti-hair loss products, sleeping pills and aids show market revival

Chinese born in the 1990s, long troubled by hectic lifestyles marked by working till late, heavy

workload and career-related pressures, have a new problem to deal with: hair loss.

But certain manufacturers are sensing a big business opportunity

as products that promise to cure or prevent hair loss are seeing something of a revival.

Last year, among consumers who bought hair care and hair growth products on e-commerce platforms of Alib

aba Group Holding Ltd, 36 percent were born after 1990, and more than 38 percent were born between 1980 and 1990.

Middle-aged and senior consumers showed lower-than-expected demand for hair c

are products, according to a report by AliHealth, the health and medicine unit of Alibaba Group.

More Myanmar parents are willing to send their children to t

 school because speaking fluent Chinese is necessary for them to work in China or do business with China, Sun said.

The government in Ruili has invested 2.6 million yuan ($388,000) in impro

ving school facilities, including building a new school building, canteen and playground. T

he school has established a special foundation with donations from teachers, parents and officers at the in

spection station to sponsor impoverished Chinese and Burmese students in pursuing their studies, he said.

Ruili, an important land port for southwestern China, is described by a famous C

hinese song, There is a Beautiful Place, which describes its natural beauty and colorful folklore.

At the school, the students also can be heard singing another so

ng, “Two countries, one school, hand in hand, heart to heart, forever love.”

On March 13, CNBC reported that Malta, an island nation i

the Mediterranean that is also a EU member state, has indicated it, too, could join the BRI. The news channel quoted Maltes

e Finance Minister Edward Scicluna as saying that “certain prejudices” should not come in the way of good business.

I am not sure if Marquis, or his boss, US National Security Advisor John Bolton, plan to lecture, warn or th

reaten Malta as they have been doing to Italy these past days. But instead of indulging in such rea

ctionary activities, the US should abandon its Cold War mentality and stop looking for non-existent enemies.

More important, the US should also stop forcing other countries to ch

oose between China and the US, especially as many countries made it clear they do not wan

t to be lectured on what they should do when the Obama administration launched the “pivot to Asia strategy”.

The world needs more infrastructure-building projects such as the BRI, not mo

ves to sabotage such projects, as the US has been trying to do for quite some time now.

As dawn broke, those sobs began to make sense as a “ter

  rible sight” emerged, Taylor said.

  ”Dead bodies had floated up (and the) current of the flood water had washed the bodies up against the road,” said Tay

lor. “The road had subsided about 10 inches (25.5 centimeters). So these bodies had been washed up against the main highway.”

  Taylor said the smell of bodies and livestock was palpable.Hundreds of others were also attempting to make the congested seven-ho

ur walk from the village of Lamego — about 90 kilometers (56 miles) inland from Beira — to Nhamatanda, on higher ground. In places whe

re the current of the flood waters was strong, about 50 people joined hands to make a human chain, said Taylor.

  ”I’m 6 foot 2 inches (187 centimeters), but the force of water at knee level w

as powerful,” Taylor said. “You had to pay attention and concentrate where you put your feet.”

  Taylor said he saw an elderly woman carry her husband on her back.

  On the road out of Beira, he said “the entire area, as far as I could see, was one lake of flood

water,” adding that groups of up to 10 people had climbed eucalyptus, cashew and mango trees waiting to be rescued.

He said he was asked by his employer to stay home for

mental illness and not go back to work until he recovered.”The utmost goal is like Zhuge Liang (of the Three Kingd

oms), who became a senior official to serve the country,” Shen said. “What comes second is to be like Du Fu (a reno

wned poet in Tang Dynasty known for his patriotism), who always puts the country’s and the people’s interests first.”

“Over the past 26 years, no one from the office has ever asked about me,” Shen told Red

Star News. The auditing office of Xuhui district hasn’t responded to comment as of press time.

Shen also denied online rumors that he graduated from Fudan University and once lost a daughter to a car crash.

“I have never been married, so how could I have a daughter,” he retorted. “Me, a Fudan graduate? Fudan was far out of my league.”

After days of being bombarded with visits and interviews from curious citizens or online streamers, who

are tapping into his sudden popularity for public exposure, Shen said he hopes he can be left alone so as to read more books.

Liu Gang, the founder of PayNews.net, a Hangzhou-based

online news service focusing on China’s mobile payment industry, said to Securities Daily he

expects the run-up of cashless payments will maintain for three to five years until it takes up as much sha

re of consumption as possible, as consumers incrementally wade farther into cashless payments.

Data from PBOC revealed banking financial institutions in 2018 conducted 220.31 billion deals in non-cash paym

ents involving 3,768.67 trillion yuan, a rise of 36.94 percent and 0.23 percent year-on-year respectively.

In the same period non-banking payment institutions, mainly referring to third-party online payment service providers, had 530.61 b

illion deals, surging 85.05 percent, and the transaction volume was 208.07 trillion yuan, up 45.23 percent fro

m the previous year. Mobile payment platforms Alipay and WeChat Pay occupy over 90 percent of market share.

Chinese netizens have dubbed Wan Xi-he doesn’t give his

real name-”the most hardcore cat lover” for building the AI cat shelter.

The wooden box, 165 centimeters tall, is cozy with a small entry. Inside is a multil

evel cat den with a scratching post, plush resting places, dangling toys and hideaways.

The access control system features AI facial recognition technology. A high-definition camera on top can identify 174 kinds

of cats and let them enter or exit as they wish. It has night vision to let in any ginger toms or gray tabbies wandering by at night.

The camera can check cats for four common feline diseases, including inflammation of the mout

h and gums, skin problems and trauma. It can identify a neutered cat by spotting its ear tag within 300 milliseconds.

Once a sick or non-neutered cat is identified, volunteers get an alert on their cellphones and come to help.

Wan said the facial recognition system was developed

on Baidu’s EasyDL platform, a no-code tool that helps users build customized mac

hine learning models. The system was “trained” with thousands of images of cat faces.

The temperature inside the smart cattery is maintained at 27 degrees, at which cats feel most comfortable and relaxed.

It also has a ventilation system that monitors the air inside in real time.

Wan said stray cats in the neighborhood are more nervous at first and just wander aro

und curiously. After one brave mongrel made the first visit, others followed.

Stray cats are often emotionally sensitive, so the door will not close the minute a cat enters. The anima

l will have time to get used to the cattery without being jittery. Seven or eight cats come to rest in the shelter every day.
