The State Administration for Market Regulation (SAMR) said it wanted to seek public comment for its proposals, which range from descriptions on what deals could be perceived as monopolistic to regulations governing how local authorities with the power to restrict competition should behave.

My decisions. F*** you, Supreme Court." "I know we are celebrating us right now, as we should," continued Monáe.

I love these black women and how they walked in their truth and gave us incredible music that spoke to our souls.
