A man carries box down the escalators at the Yujiapu financial centre, in Tianjin, China February 22, 2016. Yujiapu, part of a highly touted financial district in Tianjin's Binhai New Area once billed by leaders as China's answer to Manhattan, has drawn scrutiny from experts as an example of the costly infrastructure splurges that fuelled development across the country at the height of the economic boom.

A man loads plastic boxes into a truck at Jamo Equipamentos Ltd. in Jaragua do Sul, Santa Catarina state, Brazil, October 20, 2015. To hear Brazil's government tell it, businesses like Jamo Equipamentos should be booming. With Brazil locked in its worst recession in three decades, the maker of heating equipment, like other exporters, should at least be enjoying a newfound competitive advantage: the plunge in the currency, which has lost a third of its value against the dollar this year. A weaker Brazilian real makes Jamo's products cheaper in China, India and other foreign markets. Brazil's government hopes the company and other manufacturers will take advantage and drive an export-led economic recovery. But a host of factors still hold exporters back, from a depreciation of currencies in many buyer markets to a reliance on imported raw materials to a global trade slump.

Film producer Jenni Trang Le talks on phone at a cafe in Ho Chi Minh City March 9, 2015. Jenni Trang Le has made her mark in the Vietnamese film industry, producing 13 movies, including box office hits, "De Mai Tinh 2" and "Teo Em". The Vietnam War drove boatloads of Vietnamese to the United States, which had more than 1.5 million citizens of Vietnamese origin in a 2010 census. Others resettled in Australia, Canada, Britain and France via refugee camps in Asia, surviving perilous voyages on crowded, rickety boats on which thousands starved or drowned. Now, many former refugees and their offspring are reaping the gains of Vietnam's booming emerging market and middle-class growth, tapping a young consumer population that's embracing Western culture.

Boxers fight during the closing Thai boxing, or "Muay Thai", fight night of the legendary Lumpinee stadium, one of Bangkok's oldest boxing venues which is being demolished after 57 years, February 7, 2014. Lumpinee's circular structure, with an ageing tin roof that lets in rain and sunlight, is a stone's throw from the central oasis of Lumpini Park and had avoided Bangkok's frenetic building boom. The stadium harks back to the capital's golden days before the invasion of skyscrapers that now soar above it. But it stands on prime real estate and its lease was not renewed by the Crown Property Bureau, one of Bangkok's biggest landlords and the fund that supports Thailand's monarchy. That is forcing the stadium to move to a new venue on the outer fringes of the sprawling city - a logistical hassle for tourists and Thais who have flocked to Lumpinee for decades.

A fighter in interviewed after his win during the closing Thai boxing, or "Muay Thai", fight night of the legendary Lumpinee stadium, one of Bangkok's oldest boxing venues which is being demolished after 57 years, February 7, 2014. Lumpinee's circular structure, with an ageing tin roof that lets in rain and sunlight, is a stone's throw from the central oasis of Lumpini Park and had avoided Bangkok's frenetic building boom. The stadium harks back to the capital's golden days before the invasion of skyscrapers that now soar above it. But it stands on prime real estate and its lease was not renewed by the Crown Property Bureau, one of Bangkok's biggest landlords and the fund that supports Thailand's monarchy. That is forcing the stadium to move to a new venue on the outer fringes of the sprawling city - a logistical hassle for tourists and Thais who have flocked to Lumpinee for decades.

A box with vacuum-sealed beef meat is pictured at the Biernacki Meat Plant slaughterhouse in Golina near Jarocin, western Poland July 17, 2013. The abattoir in this small town in western Poland has a special dormitory to house the more than 30 Jewish men designated by Israel's chief rabbi to oversee the production of kosher beef there. Poland exports 90 percent of its beef, a third of which was kosher or halal worth some 1 billion euros ($1.3 billion). But this booming industry has ground to a halt because, after a campaign by animal rights activists who say the method of slaughter is cruel, Poland's constitutional court banned the practice and this month its parliament rejected an amendment that would have allowed the slaughter to resume.

Despite giddy Chinese art prices showing some strain from global economic uncertainty, collectors think value will continue to rise due to limited supply and continued strong demand as Asian collectors become more affluent. Hong Kong has played a key role in Asia's art market boom. Its auction market turnover -- anchored by Sotheby's and Christie's -- skyrocketed 300 percent from 2009 to 2010, powered by a wave of Chinese millionaires buying art with avid fervour.

Los Angeles voice actor Truman landed a new role as a full-time gluten-free baker after she tweaked her recipes to replace the wheat that was making her feel miserable. Truman is among the estimated 18 million people in the United States who are sensitive to gluten, a hard-to-digest protein found in wheat, rye and barley. Another 3 million-plus Americans are thought to have celiac disease, a potentially life-threatening autoimmune disorder that is treated by eliminating dietary gluten.

Peru's presidential candidate Keiko Fujimori announces her defeat in the Peruvian elections to the media in Lima, June 6, 2011. Former army commander Ollanta Humala claimed victory in Peru's presidential election on Sunday as investors worried that his left-wing policies could ruin a long economic boom. With 80 percent of ballot boxes counted, Humala had a narrow but growing lead of 1.4 percentage points over right-wing lawmaker Keiko Fujimori, the daughter of jailed former President Alberto Fujimori.

Inflation in Brazil finished at a six-year high in 2010, fuelled by a 10.39 percent surge in food prices. The main factors behind the jump in food costs were strong commodities prices globally, booming consumer demand at home and smaller-than-expected crop harvests because of bad weather.
