        >Bezos agrees $35B divorce


        The world's richest man, Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, and his wife MacKenzie have agreed a record-breaking divorce settlement of at least $35 billion.

        MacKenzie Bezos will keep a 4% stake in the online retail giant, worth $35.6 billion on its own.

        Amazon was founded by Jeff Bezos in Seattle in 1994, a year after the couple married, and MacKenzie was one of its first employees.

        Both parties tweeted positive comments about the other in the wake of the announced settlement.

        The two did not provide any further financial details about the settlement.

        The Amazon shares alone will make MacKenzie Bezos the world's third-richest woman while Jeff will remain the world's richest person, according to Forbes.

        >Palace Museum head retires


        According to a public announcement from the Palace Museum, director and curator Shan Jixiang has retired April 8, succeeded by the director of the Dunhuang Academy, Wang Xudong.

        During his time at the Palace Museum, the place underwent a series of innovative changes.

        By the end of 2018, over 80% of the areas in the Forbidden City opened up to public visitors, compared with only 52% in 2014.

        Shan also injected new vitality into Chinese cultural heritage. From the various creative products to the Lantern Festival light show, the Palace Museum has returned to the center of public discussion.

        Netizens praised him as a tireless guardian and promoter of the nation's heritage.

        Shan "has made the Forbidden City shift from a luxury beyond reach to one that is accessible to ordinary people", a Sina Weibo user posted on Monday. "He made more younger people fall in love with the Forbidden City."


        With the fear of a so-called "No Deal" Brexit some Britons are planning for the worst and stockpiling food and other essentials.[Photo/IC]

        >People stockpiles for Brexit


        Wine, toilet roll and pasta are the most common items panicked shoppers are stockpiling in preparation for a no deal Brexit, analysis of Mumsnet revealed.

        And rice, long-life milk, coffee, medication, flour, tinned tomatoes, beans and tea were most commonly bulk bought, according to Quartz who analyzed more than 3,000 Mumsnet posts.

        A third of the food bought by British shoppers is imported from the European Union and fears a complex supply network will break down following Brexit are rising.

        But the Department for Exiting the European Union and the British Retail Consortium said there was no reason to stockpile.

        Andrew Opie, director of food and sustainability at the British Retail Consortium, said retailers were already stockpiling so consumers did not have to.



        >Residency curbs relaxed


        China will relax residency curbs and boost the urban population, the country's top economic planner said.

        According to a document posted on the website of the National Development and Reform Commission on Monday, the government aims to increase the urbanization rate by at least 1 percentage point by the end of this year.

        The proportion of urban population to total population reached 59.58% in 2018.

        The objective is part of its larger goal to move 100 million rural residents to cities by 2020.

        Under the plan, cities with a population under 3 million should remove all limits on hukou - household registration - and cities with populations between 3 million and 5 million should relax restrictions.

        Megacities including Beijing and Shanghai should improve the points system to qualify for household registration, allowing more people to settle in those cities.
