While some netizens praised the story, others felt cheated for the home decoration advertisement afte

r the video. Jiang Luxian, a lawyer from Chengdu, Sichuan province, said the advertisement probably violates relevant provisions of the A

dvertising Law, and the creativity of “sharing father” is also improper for public order and traditions.

Oppein, the creator behind the promotion, however, said on social media that

it hoped everyone would pay attention to the lack of father figures, and return to the family for love.

The province has given 1.69 million registered poo

 students stipends worth a total of 5.3 billion yuan ($777 million) since 2015, according to Guizhou’s Education Department.

While working out its strategy to impart knowledge to rural children, Guizh

ou has also taken into consideration that many kids come to school hungry.

According to Bao Benqi of the provincial Education Department, the Guizhou government has set the goal that

“each of the primary and secondary schools in the rural areas should have a canteen so that lunch can be served to every student”.

The meal is believed to help students improve their performance at school. Many studen

ts in the poverty-stricken areas had been coming to class with an empty stomach, since they did not have food at home.

“More than 3.8 million primary and secondary school students and

860,000 preschool kids are covered in the nutrition project every year,” Bao said.

oyers have to pay at least 1.5 times the usual salary to the employees for overtime work.

This is to protect the rights, interests and health of the workers.

Jack Ma, founder of Alibaba Group, has added fuel to the debate, by saying that empl

oyees who get the “opportunity” to work according the “996” schedule are the luc

But the fact is, if employers do not meet the two essential requiremen

ts to make employees work overtime – consulting wo

Artificial intelligence will bring about changes as fundamental as t

hose enabled by electrification, argues Li Kaifu, Chinese artificial intelligence specialist and fo

under of the venture capital firm Sinovation Ventures. He says that China is leading in real-world applications of AI to bus

inesses, factories and cities, and is catching up with the United States in basic research.

Li’s technological optimism contrasts with a widespread pessi

mism about technology prevalent among thinkers from Silicon Valley.

For example, famed venture capitalist Peter Theil uses the slogan “We wanted flying cars, ins
