Hong Kong protest movement's unlikely teen leader

(AP Photo/Vincent Yu)HONG KONG (AP) — At age 14, he stepped into the spotlight to take on — and ultimately help defeat — Hong Kong authorities' plans to launch a "national education" curriculum, calling it a ploy to brainwash the city's youth with unquestioned support for the Chinese Communist Party.

Air pollution policy making and social media in Beijing, 2011-2013
This article is by Johan van de Ven, whose undergraduate dissertation at Oxford University examined the effects of factors such as environmental movements, diplomacy and social media on air pollution policy-making in China. In a study conducted from June to December 2013, I quantitatively and qualitatively examined a variety of social media and mainstream media articles related to air pollution  and compared the results with government statements and policy making events, with the aim of answering the question: Was social media primarily responsible for government action on air pollution in China?

New CNY 30,000 Maximum Fine in Proposed Anti-Spam Regulations “No Threat” to Spammers
Letters At a Glance: Even with steeper fines, new proposed anti-spam rules for China are unlikely to be a deterrent; lack of streamlined, efficient governing body only aggravates the situation. Even the nation’s official news agency, Xinhua, is a little worried about the maximum fine being proposed in the Telecommunications Short Message Service Management Regulations, which is currently gathering comments and views from citizens. To many, CNY 30,000 (equivalent to around GBP 3,000), in spite of being the equivalent of half a year’s pay in some of the larger cities (reduced in that same period to nothingness if a scary mortgage and utilities are accounted for), is in essence close to nothing for the hors-la-loi, who will easily make much higher profits even if fined. In shocking figures, spam goes in China to the low figure of a mere CNY 0.04 per message, which means that 10 spam messages will cost the equivalent of a mere 4p (in pounds sterling). Criminals move quicker, too: one million...
