>Man pours water on Robin Li

A man poured a bottle of water over Baidu Chief Executive Robin Li on Wednesday at the opening of an annual conference for the Chinese search giant. Li was speaking of applications for artificial intelligence (AI) in a speech when the young man approached him, spilled the liquid over Li's head, and walked away.

Looking shocked, Li responded by saying "What's your problem?", before the man left the stage and was tackled by security.

About 20 seconds later, Li continued his address, saying, "As everyone can see, some unexpected things can happen on the road to artificial intelligence. However, our determination will not change, and we believe AI could change everyone's life."

The motivation behind the man's action was unclear. A spokesman for Baidu said the matter was under investigation.



>Blogger subject to ad rules

Anyone with more than 30,000 social media followers is now considered a celebrity and subject to advertising rules in the UK.

The Advertising Standards Authority found mummy blogger, Sarah Willox Knott, breached its rules when she promoted an over-the-counter sleeping sedative, as her 37,000 Instagram followers classified her as a "celebrity".

The ruling is the first of its kind where a social media "influencer" has fallen foul of regulations banning celebrities or health professionals from endorsing medical products.

Knott posted an image on her Instagram account in February of her sitting in bed smiling with a packet of Phenergan Night Time Tablets visible in the background.

In the caption Willox Knott wrote that she was a "night owl" who found the tablets "really helped" when she struggled to get to sleep.

>Boeing pledges $100M support

Boeing has pledged to commit $100m to help address the needs of families and communities affected by the two deadly crashes in Indonesia and Ethiopia last October and this March of its 737 Max aircraft in which 346 people died.
美国航企波音公司承诺投入1亿美元,帮助解决两起致命空难涉及的家庭与社区的需求。去年10月和今年3月,印度尼西亚和埃塞俄比亚各发生一起涉及波音737 Max机型的空难,共造成346人丧生。

The US aerospace group said the investment, to be made over several years, will support education, hardship and living expenses for families affected by the two tragedies.

Boeing will work with local governments and non-profit organizations as part of the plan.

The 737 Max has been grounded worldwide since March. There is as yet no firm timetable for when the plane will return to the skies.

>Less burdens in vacation

The Ministry of Education urged reasonable assignments of homework for primary and secondary school students during summer vacation to reduce their extracurricular burdens. This is to ensure that they will have a "safe, happy and meaningful vacation," the ministry said in a statement Tuesday.

Schools should control the quantity of assignments and parents should be advised not to arrange excessive after-school training for their children, the statement said.

Regulation on extracurricular class institutions should also be tightened. Any sessions exceeding the standard amount or content should be rectified in a timely manner, and institutions failing or refusing to do so will be punished. In serious cases, their training licenses will be revoked, the statement said.
