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.

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
All in 完全投入的、不给自己留退路
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.
