After Hong Kong found Select’s “extra-large fresh brown eggs” to contain close to twice the legal limit of melamine, Walmart has pulled all eggs from the brand off the shelves of all its China stores.

He went home around midnight without her, and she came home three hours later, to find him hanging outside on the balcony, with the suicide note “Sam, I’m so sorry but I’m done with this life. I’ve felt so alone since we moved here. I’m sorry for f***ing up your life. Sorry all, I’m done here.” The threat of loneliness and depression for expats is real.
