>Boy as highest paid YouTuber
8-year-old Ryan Kaji earned $26 million in 2019 on his YouTube channel, making him the highest-paid creator on the platform, according to a list published by Forbes magazine.
Kaji, whose real name is Ryan Guan, was already the video platform's highest earner in 2018, with $22 million, according to Forbes.
His channel "Ryan's World," launched in 2015 by Ryan's parents, is only three years old but already has 22.9 million subscribers.
Initially called "Ryan ToysReview," the channel mostly consisted of "unboxing" videos.
Several of the videos have racked up more than one billion views, and the channel has received almost 35 billion views since its creation, according to data from the analytics website Social Blade.
>New toilet cuts bathroom breaks
An extended office bathroom break could be a thing of the past thanks to a new toilet that developers say will make people want to leave the loo after five minutes.
The "StandardToilet" is created by a start-up company of the same name.
The toilet has been sloped at 13 degrees as it is inconvenient for the employee but not harmful, in fact it could have some health benefits around improving posture.
Thirteen degrees is not too inconvenient, but you'd soon want to get off the seat.
StandardToilet say their sloped solution would help to reduce employees' social media use and improve productivity by cutting down on toilet time.
>Separate beds good to health
Separate beds aren't a sign of marital strife - they're the key to better health and a happier relationship.
Or so suggests a survey, which showed that one in six couples has resorted to sleeping apart not because they can't stand each other, but because they're desperate for a decent night's sleep.
One party's snoring, fidgeting, or simply the fact that they crawl in at midnight when the other person bedded down hours before, can leave couples craving what's been emotively dubbed a "sleep divorce".
"Poor sleep affects your performance, relationships, increases your risk of accidents and, in the long term, is associated with an increase in weight, type 2 diabetes and depression,"says Dr Neil Stanley who has been conducting sleep research for 35 years. "Sleep is vitally important, and there's no reason to compromise it for the sake of an unscientific social construct of sleeping together. "
>Returnees' employment report
International vision has become the prominent advantage of overseas returnees when seeking jobs at home, according to the Report on Employment and Entrepreneurship of Overseas Chinese Returnees 2019, released by the Center for China and Globalization in Beijing.
The language advantage of overseas returnees is gradually declining with the internationalization of education ideas among domestic colleges and their emphasis on language education, the report said.
Fast economic development, a high degree of internationalization and diversified culture continue to be the three most important factors for a city to attract returnees.
The report also shows that those born in the 1990s, especially after 1995, are becoming the main force of entrepreneurship among overseas returnees.
