That, as similarly noted mid-April , seems to be because the unprecedented greater than 1-to-1 attach rate is probably due to some fans snatching up one of the limited editions along with a second copy to play. Factor in Wii U version sales, which add 1.08 million to the tally, and Zelda s numbers soar to 3.84 million units. Overall Switch software volume was 5.46 million units for March, says Nintendo. (Incidentally, the Master Edition of Zelda , which retails for $129.99 but sold out hours after its announcement in January, is currently trending on eBay at $250 .) Buy now: Nintendo Switch, Amazon, $299 Nintendo didn't release sales figures for 1-2 Switch , its other in-house launch game, aimed at groups of players in party-style settings and arguably much more representative than Zelda of the Switch's platform uniqueness.

Profits earned by Chinas industrial firms rose 23.8 per cent in March from a year earlier, buoyed by a continued construction boom, though the pace of growth eased from multi-year highs seen in previous months. Profits in March rose to 688.7 billion yuan (US$99.9 billion), the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) said on its website on Thursday. In the first quarter, industrial profits climbed 28.3 per cent to 1.7 trillion yuan, slowing from growth of 31.5 per cent in the first two months...

The Sleuth is a waterfront fan and bird nerd so you can imagine that the riverside from Attenborough Nature Reserve to Sawley Marina is one of his favourite places. Not least the Trent Lock neighbourhood where the Soar, Erewash Canal and Cranfleet Cut all meet the River Trent. The hostelries at Trent Lock include the cunningly named The Trent Lock, formerly The Trent Navigation, once the last place for boatmen transporting coal from the Derbyshire collieries to enjoy a sly one before turning...

A Chinese boy cycles past a cooling towers of a coal-fired power plant in Dadong, Shanxi province, China. China’s coal-to-chemical industry could produce CO2 emissions in excess of 400 million tons a year by the end of the decade — a more than fourfold increase from the 90 million emitted in 2015. Coal-to-chemical projects, which convert coal to other chemical properties, including oil and gas, are extremely carbon intensive, accounting for roughly 3% of the country’s total CO2 emissions in 2012. China has 46 coal-to-chemical plants in operation and another 22 under construction — which is projected to add a combined 193 million tons of carbon emissions a year once completed. But there are also dozens more awaiting approval, and if those go ahead then the industry will likely blast through its CO2 emissions target set forth in China’s Five Year Plan earlier this year, according to a Greenpeace East Asia analysis .

I think that would be extremely unhelpful for Britain. MPN: Even though Great Britain was not in the eurozone, many people forget that it had been a part of the European Exchange Rate Mechanism, the ERM, before departing in 1992. This departure had, like Brexit, been accompanied by doom-and-gloom scenarios for what the impact on the British economy would be. In reality, how did exiting the ERM impact the British economy at the time? RB: It’s very funny, this, because I remember extremely well that before Britain left — ”left” is too dignified a word, it sort of fell out of the ERM. What happened in September 1992, the UK Treasury was telling anyone who wanted to listen, and quite a few who didnt, that we absolutely had to stay in the ERM, because otherwise inflation would soar, interest rates would soar and the economy would go down the tubes.
