This 20-year-old held up a placard and posed for this photo drawing attention to #Singapore, Big Oil, and the #climatecrisis. The police called him up to be questioned. His appointment was at 10:45am this morning. As far as I can tell, he’s still w/ the police. #FridaysForFuture

Last year, after @GretaThunberg's address at the UN, and after she was named @TIME Person of the Year, some casually wondered what would have happened if she’d been a kid in #Singapore.

The deputy governor of PBOC said at press con that mums could use the credit scores provided by the central bank to choose future son-in-law with confidence. Marriage has sadly been making M&A deals in China. Now even more so.
