The big men’s fashion trend of 2022? Dressing like a tween: ‘Kidcore’ -- a fad that sees adult men conjure their tweenage years with expressive, if juvenile, outfits -- has thrived during the pandemic. Why the style is resonating and how to strike a somewhat age-appropriate balance.

Ships arriving to the Yantian terminal are delayed by an average seven days and the number of ships arriving from Europe and the U.S. has fallen more than 40% in the past two weeks, the terminal said in a customer advisory Wednesday. That comes on top of the problems Shenzhen port was already facing, with a viral outbreak earlier this month leading to lockdowns of districts, testing of workers and trucking delays at the Yantian and Shekou container terminals.
