He is known for his lavish parties and eccentric tastes. In the past Jack Ma, the 55 year-old billionaire founder of Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba, has attended the group’s annual company book profits festivals dressed up as a punk rocker or as Michael Jackson.

But the public float of his second company, Ant Group, could turn out to be his biggest extravaganza yet.

The forthcoming listing of the payments firm, which was announced on Monday, is expected to value it at $200bn (£158bn) – making it easily the most valuable listing of 2020 anywhere in the world.

Ant Group, formerly Ant Financial, provides mobile payments services across China and further afield with 1 billion users. Its products include mobile payments apps, backend payment services and digital wallets and is the market leader in China’s $16tn digital

Dribble handoff: Who will be college basketball’s player of the year in the 2020-21 season?

Watch Now:
College Basketball 2020-21 Season Outlook Amid COVID-19 Concerns
(5:45)

College basketball has seen plenty of repeat champions recently with North Carolina, Duke, Villanova, and UConn each winning two of the last 11 NCAA Tournament titles. Name brand programs Louisville, Kentucky, Villanova and Virginia filled in the gaps over that span.

But when it comes to another measurement of college basketball success — producing national player of the year winners — parity is more prevalent. The last 11 Naismith College Player of the Year winners are all from different schools, and a couple of them came from mid-major programs.

BYU guard Jimmer Fredette won the honor in 2011, and Dayton’s Obi Toppin exploded onto the national scene to earn the award last season. Can you guess which program most recently produced two Naismith award winners? It wasn’t Duke, Kentucky, North Carolina or Villanova.

It was Oklahoma, with

As junior college basketball moves to January hope is dwindling the NCAA season will start on time

The National Junior College Athletic Association announced Monday that it will not conduct any “close-contact” sports — like football and basketball — in the fall semester. Instead, the NJCAA’s new plan is to start basketball season in January and football season in March. And though this isn’t necessarily a sign of what’s to come at the Division I level, it sure feels like it could be as COVID-19 cases continue to spike in a way that makes playing college sports in the United States any time soon difficult bordering on impossible.

In short, things are not going well.

The Big Ten and Pac-12 have already announced they will not play non-league football games this fall, and more power conferences are expected to eventually do the same (if they even play football at all in the fall, which is obviously in question). Meantime, few people outside of college basketball are

How Mobile Technology May Help Kids Learn to Recognize Emotions in Faces

An essential social skill is understanding emotion. Children learn about emotion even before language by paying attention to a caregiver’s face. Watching people around them provides children with essential facts for survival: Who will love me? Whom should I be scared of?

These days everyone’s seen infants and toddlers, and their parents, with screens in their faces. So how could little ones be getting the critical in-person, face-to-face interaction they desperately need in those early years?

Yet in today’s world, just about everyone uses devices to communicate with others, even face to face. Toddlers learn from video chatting with their grandparents, and teens devour image-driven social media on platforms such as Instagram and Snapchat.

What if, rather than stunting the emotional skills traditionally learned from in-person interactions, the hours kids spend staring at screens and sharing selfies with friends actually teach them to read emotion in facial expressions?
