China To End One-Child Policy, Allowing Families Two Children

China’s Communist Party brought to an end the decades-old “one-child” policy on Thursday, when leaders announced that all married couples would be allowed to have two children in a bid to reverse the rapid aging of the labor force.

The announcement came after the party’s Central Committee concluded a four-day meeting in a heavily guarded hotel in western Beijing where the committee approved proposals for China’s next five-year development plan, which starts next year.

The Chinese limit of one child for most families, which was enacted to slow population growth, has led to criticism in the past.

Items That Survived The Sinking Of The Titanic Auctioned, With A Cracker Sold For $22,968

A cracker that survived the titanic has been sold for $23968. The Spillers and Bakers 'Pilot' biscuit survived the sinking of the Titanic in 1912 in which over 1,500 people died after the 'unsinkable' ship hit an iceberg.

According to auctioneers, the sweet was part of a survival kit that was stored within one of the ill-fated ocean liner's lifeboats. James Fenwick, a passenger onboard the SS Carpathia, which went to the aid of survivors from the ship kept it as a 'souvenir' of the disaster.

Another item auctioned was a 'loving cup' which was presented to the captain of the Carpathia, which came to the Titanic's aid. It was given to Captain Arthur Rostron by survivor Molly Brown and was paid for by donations from wealthy passengers after the disaster.

It sold for an incredible £129,000 ($197,531) - making it the third most expensive Titanic item ever. The cup, which stands 16 inches tall, was given to Rostron for his great courage to speed the RMS Carpathia through an ice field at night to reach the Titanic and rescue 712 survivors. The auction also featured a photo of the iceberg that is believed to have sunk the cruise liner. It sold for £21,000 ($32,156).

Husband Makes Wife Go Through Surgeries To Fulfil Her Dream Of Wearing A Bikini & Mark Her 40th Birthday

A woman has worn a bikini for the first time in 15 years after her devoted husband treated her to the £8,000 body she had always dreamed of as an early 40th birthday present. Emma Beardmore was gifted a tummy tuck and breast augmentation by her husband Paul, 42, as a joint present for the couple's wedding anniversary, her birthday and Christmas.

The operation, which saw her increase her cup size from an A to a D , meant she finally felt confident enough to wear a bikini for the first time in 15 years. Emma says she never believed she could wear a bikini again because she lost her body 14 years ago after given birth to their daughter and admitted she started eating a lot. Her dream of wearing a bikini has however come true after her husband spent £8000 on her for a cosmetic surgery.

It has been 11 weeks since Emma's tummy tuck and breast augmentation, which was done through cosmetic surgery experts Mya and she said she is doing very well. See a photo of her before the surgeries after the cut.
