In Japan, the Nikkei 225 was up close to 3%, in South Korea, the Kospi was up 3.37& and in Australia, the S&P/ASX 300 was up 2.79%.

Good-looking students did not have any advantages during virtual school, proving that good-looking students do have an advantage in normal times.
A researcher in Sweden found analyzed grades before and after Covid. They asked a panel to grade the students' attractiveness and found that the students that were scored most attractive showed a "significant decline" in average grades in qualitative courses.
Qualitative courses are courses that have more subjective grading where teachers and students interact more, meaning teachers have more input in final grades. So when teachers can see their students, they grade the prettier ones higher than they otherwise would have.
For quantitative courses like math and physics, where answers are simply right or wrong, there was no change in grades observed for the better-looking pupils.
Extra Cheesy Text
KFC sent a push notification in Germany asking customers to celebrate Reichspogromnacht with "extra cheese." The company has apologized.
Reichspogromnacht, or in English "Night of the Broken Glass," also known as Kristallnacht, was a brutal attack on Jewish people during the Holocaust. It raged for two days and the broken glass refers to all of the destruction of Jewish places. It's seen as the prelude to the Holocaust.
The KFC alert said [English translation] "Remembrance of the Reichspogromnacht. Treat yourself with more tender cheese on your crispy chicken. Now at KFCheese!"
Not only is this offensive, it's ignorant. Kosher diets forbid dairy with meat.
KFC has since apologized saying, "In this particular case, our internal review process was not properly followed. We understand and respect the seriousness and history of this day and we remain committed to equality, inclusion and belonging for all."
