Chinese firms give single female employees over 30 ‘dating leave’

Two Chinese firms are giving single female employees over the age of 30 an additional eight days of annual leave to “go home and date”.

The initiative by the Hangzhou Songcheng Performance and Hangzhou Songcheng Tourism Management firms will only be available to employees who have non-essential roles.

A growing middle class has led to a larger number of Chinese women focusing on their careers and choosing to marry later – or staying single altogether.

 The Moon was hit by a meteorite while you were staring at the ‘Super Blood Wolf Moon’ eclipse

Stargazers watching the eclipse saw a brief white flash on the darker side of the moon that lasted for only a fraction of a second.

This bright flash was made by something incredibly small – experts think the meteorite might have weighed only 22 pounds.

Phone makers are going all-in on foldables, but I’m skeptical

Huawei confirmed that it was working on a foldable phone, Motorola was just granted a patent for one with the Razr label, and a leaked video showed a tri-folding Xiaomi phone.

I’m curious to see if this will be a passing fad, or a mainstream trend in phone design.

It feels like there’s a lot to figure out before foldable handsets go mainstream.
