Jubensha – Script murder
A jubensha is a role-playing murder mystery activity that has become highly popular among young urban Chinese.
Sessions of script murder, which take place in specialist escape room-style venues, cost up to 300 yuan per person and take over four hours. Players are each given a character with a complex backstory and costume, and are then thrown into an immersive environment to rummage around for clues and interact with other characters as they attempt to solve a crime.

A study of 2,000 UK professionals found 79% will tuck into their food as they work, so they can use their "lunch break" to do other things.
Watching YouTube videos, walking the dog and playing with apps on their phones are also among some of the ways people spend their lunch break.
The study, commissioned by Samsung KX, is designed to inspire people to reclaim their lunch breaks.
"We all need to make time for ourselves and our research has shown how few really are," said Tanya Weller, director of Samsung Showcase KX. “It’s easy to get caught up in a piece of work, but people aren’t even giving themselves a moment to eat — let alone do anything else." alt="八成英国人午休时间不吃午饭 他们在干啥？">

美国政府进一步限制移民，还不断收紧签证政策，并声称此举将为美国人腾出数十万个工作岗位。然而恐怕要事与愿违了。新研究发现，收紧签证只会迫使企业在海外招工和设立办事处。 Employers are relocating jobs to Canada. REUTERS/CARLOS OSORIO President Donald Trump has been trying to encourage firms to hire more American workers by...
