A Mexican tax on sugar-sweetened beverages has cut soft-drink sales by 6 percent, according to a new report.

Check out the latest craze for this summer – the Face-Kini.
The Face-Kini, also known as a bikini for your face, has become a hit in China. This is because in China the colour of your skin can represent socio-economic status. Whiter skin is considered to represent wealth and beauty.
The new fashion craze maybe a little alarming at first, but the popular swimwear accessory offers full-face protection from the sun and jellyfish stings.
If you’re getting tired of slopping on sunscreen and catching yourself in the eye, the Face-Kini has you covered.
The Face-kini was invented by a former accountant Zhang Shifan and more than 30,000 have been sold in the last year.
Fortunately, they come in a wide range of different styles and patterns.
