|Taylor Swift and Adele may have boycotted streaming platforms when releasing their latest albums， but rapper Kanye West proved the power of online consumption as The Life of Pablo debuted at the top of the US Billboard 200 album chart on the strength of streaming numbers。
The Life of Pablo， West‘s seventh studio album and his seventh No.1 record on Billboard 200， sold 28，000 physical albums and was streamed 99 million times in the US， accounting for 66，000 album units， according to figures from Nielsen SoundScan。 The chart equates 1，500 streams as one album unit。
West first released Pablo on premium streaming service Tidal in February， which offered new subscribers a free trial before paying between $9.99 and $19.99 a month。
The rapper kept tweaking tracks and titles before making Pablo available on platforms such as Apple Music and Spotify last week。 Spotify said Pablo was streamed 50 million times in the US last week， accounting for half of the overall streams。
It is also available to purchase for $20 via West‘s own website。
West‘s success follows that of R&B singer Rihanna， whose Anti album topped the Billboard 200 chart in March with 17，000 physical album sales and 36 million streams。
Rihanna released Anti exclusively on Tidal in February before making it available on other streaming platforms。
The commercial value of streaming has been questioned by artists such as pop singer Swift， who withheld her 1989 album from streaming platforms in 2014， saying music should be paid for。
BEIJING Nike Air Max 97 Dames Nederland , Feb. 6 (Xinhua) -- Shanghai resident Sun Wenjing has to balance the wants of her children while buying gifts for the coming Chinese New Year.
"Although they can share toys, we have to clarify who owns the toy to avoid fighting, a sweet headache for having two kids," she said. The 33-year-old mother bought beads for her seven-year-old daughter and a LEGO set for her preschool son.
China has relaxed its family planning policy this year, allowing each family to have two children. For young parents like Sun, raising another child is far more than food supply.
According to Chinese family planning authorities Nike Air Max 97 Nederland , the two-child policy will add an estimated 3 million babies annually for a total of 17.5 to 21 million newborns each year in the next five years.
Most of the young parents were born after the late 1970s, when China's one-child policy took effect. Unlike their thrifty parents, young couples who were doted on as single children tend to spend free-handedly, especially for their beloved next generation.
Considering the strong consumption of these parents, economic institutions and retailers are optimistic about industries related to infants and children, such as baby products Nike Air Max 98 Dames Nederland , amusement parks and education.
Leading U.S. toy retailer Toys'R'Us announced in January it would open more than 30 new outlets in China in 2016, considering it as one of the most important markets in its expansion plan. Currently the brand has 100 stores in 44 Chinese cities.
In Shanghai, Disney's first theme park on the Chinese mainland is set to open in June. According to the company, the project will attract 10 million visits each year, which will also help promote development of tourism, trade and retail in the city.
Sales of baby products Nike Air Max 98 Heren Nederland , including diapers and formula powder, have also benefited.
According to a 2015 white paper on the baby product market released by consultancy iResearch, the total revenue for Chinese mother and baby products last year reached 2.3 trillion yuan, with an estimated growth rate of 10 percent annually in the future.
Online shopping platforms specifically selling baby products have mushroomed in recent years, such as muyingzhijia, beibei Nike Air Max 98 Zwart Nederland , mia and babytree. These platforms are expected to enter a golden age for development in the coming years, the white paper says.
However, compared with baby products, it is children's education that parents spend the most on.
Sun Wenjing said she pays 15,000 yuan per term for her daughter's private primary school and 2,500 yuan for her son's kindergarten per month.
She also registered her daughter for piano lessons and swimming classes. The total spent on her children's education exceeds 10 Nike Air Max 98 Wit Nederland ,000 yuan every month, accounting for two thirds of the total family expense.
"I can't think of anything more important than education for my kids," said white-collar Zhang Yan in Beijing, a mother of two girls.
For Zhang, education means not only a decent school, but also cultivating interests and broadening her children's horizons.
"My daughters have dance classes www.airmax98supreme.nl , which they like very much. I would also like them to learn how to ride horses, a noble sport for them to look graceful," she said, adding travel is a must for the family every year.
The rising cost of raising a child in China may scare away some parents planning a second baby, but those who have decided to have another child will definitely offer the best they can afford for their children, said James Roy Nike Air Max 98 Supreme Nederland Kopen , Shanghai-based associate principal at China Market Research Group.
BRASILIA, July 26 (Xinhua) -- China's better-than-expected economic growth has a positive impact on Brazil's otherwise flagging economy, especially in the primary products sector, said a leading economist.
Jose Luiz Oreiro, professor of economics at the University of Brasilia, said he believes China's 6.9-percent GDP growth in the first half of 2017 has helped to lift Brazil out of its economic doldrums.
"In the first quarter Nike Air Max 98 Supreme Nederland Sale , the only sector that saw real growth in Brazil was agribusiness with a 13-percent increase," said Oreiro, adding that "steel also has reasonable prices due to China's growth, so China's added growth has been good news for the Brazilian economy."
