>Show to be pulled from TV

The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, an annual spectacular female lingerie show, will no longer be available on network television starting from this year, ending a nearly two-decade run.

The decision was revealed in a memo sent to employees by Leslie Wexner, CEO of L Brands, Victoria's Secret's parent company, as he said network TV is not the "right fit" for the fashion show. The chief executive said his company will develop a new kind of event in 2019 and in the following years to replace the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show.
维密母公司L Brands集团首席执行官莱斯利•维克斯纳在向员工发布的公司备忘录中透露了这一决定。维克斯纳表示,网络电视已经不再适合时装秀,今明两年公司将创造一种新的活动形式来替代维密时装秀。

The news comes after the lingerie retailer had a record low 3.3 million viewership last year, down from 9.7 million viewers in 2013.



>A$50 banknotes with typos

Millions of A$50 banknotes in Australia have an embarrassing typographical error that was overlooked by the country's central bank before they were printed and circulated.

The goof first became known when a listener on radio outlet Triple M sent the station a magnified photo of the Reserve Bank of Australia's (RBA) new A$50 note highlighting the word "responsibility" misspelt as "responsibilty" three times.

But the RBA has no intention of withdrawing or recalling the notes from circulation. The error will be corrected in the next print run, it said.

>SZ bars 'gaokao immigrants'

Shenzhen education authorities announced they would disqualify 32 students for taking this year's National College Entrance Exam in the city after they were found to be "gaokao immigrants".

According to a notice published on the official website of Shenzhen's education bureau on Sunday, 32 students from Shenzhen Fuyuan School used dishonest means to gain qualification for taking the college entrance exam in South China's Guangdong province in the coming June.

Authorities will revoke their qualification to participate in the exam. Shenzhen Fuyuan School is also required to severely punish those responsible and will have its high school enrollment quota cut by half in 2019.

Shenzhen Fuyuan School, a private school established in 1999, raised many eyebrows after its third-grade students performed extraordinarily well at a mock gaokao. Among the top 10 students in the mock exam, six came from Shenzhen Fuyuan School.

Some parents suspected that gaokao immigrants might be involved.

>Airport conducts test flights

Beijing's new airport saw four passenger planes completing test flights Monday morning.

Air China, China Eastern Airlines and China Southern Airlines respectively dispatched flagship models Boeing 747-8, Airbus 350-900 and A380. Meanwhile, Xiamen Airlines sent a Boeing 787-9 to take part in the test flights.

The planes landed smoothly at Beijing Daxing International Airport.

The Airport is scheduled to be completed on June 30 and open on Sept 30.

It aims to meet the country's surging air service demands and relieve the flight pressure at Beijing Capital International Airport.

The new airport, located at the junction of Beijing's Daxing district and Langfang, a city in neighboring Hebei province, is expected to handle 45 million passengers annually by 2021 and 72 million by 2025.
