>T-shirt creates frenzy
Chinese shoppers are going completely crazy over the latest collection sold by Japanese fashion company Uniqlo. The summer collection is a cooperation between Uniqlo and the renowned American artist and designer KAWS (Brian Donnelly).
The collection first started selling in Chinese mainland stores in the early morning hours of Monday, and it soon became a top trending topic on social media.
Photos and videos circulating on Weibo show people fighting to get into Uniqlo stores, pulling clothes off the shop mannequins, and buying piles of clothes from the stores.
Many netizens on Weibo were confused about the big hype surrounding the latest Uniqlo selection, with some wondering who KAWS is, and why people are so eager to wear his designs.
One Weibo user writes: "What I love is not Uniqlo, nor KAWS – what I love is to rush and clash with all these people!"
>Chinese wins Buffett lunch
A Chinese cryptocurrency entrepreneur has won the auction for this year's Buffett lunch with a $4,567,888 bid, a record high since the lunch was launched 20 years ago.
Justin Sun Yuchen, 28, founder of Tron and CEO of BitTorrent, announced his win on his Sina Weibo accounts on Monday.
"I'm delighted with the fact Justin has won the lunch and am looking forward to meeting him and his friends," Buffett said in a statement.
However, billionaire investor Warren Buffett isn't a fan of investing in cryptocurrencies, calling them "nonproductive assets", an AP report said. He has gone on record deriding Bitcoin, the world's first and largest digital currency, as everything from "rat poison squared" to a "delusion" that "attracts charlatans".
"It is very common in investment circles that people change their minds," Sun said in a telephone interview with Bloomberg.
Sun and up to seven people will dine with Buffett in New York City.
>Seaborne rocket launch
China launched a Long March-11 carrier rocket from the Yellow Sea at 12:06 pm Wednesday. The rocket carries seven satellites into orbit about 600 kilometers above the Earth. This is China's first seaborne launch, according to the website of China National Space Administration.
The Long March-11 carrier rocket has a "green" design, includes no dangerous substances, and poses no environmental threat to the sea.
Experts have done a series of trial tests ahead of the launch.
Many cutting-edge technologies have been added to the rocket, including a flight-abort system.
>Students' travelling report
College students born between 1995 and 2000 are becoming a vital new part of the dynamic travel market in China, with most of the young students making their first summer trips after enrolling in colleges, according to a new study conducted by online travel firm Qunar.
In 2018, college students registered on Qunar flew 4.4 times annually on average, higher than the average of 3.45 times nationwide, according to the company.
Data also indicated their high sensitivity on flight ticket prices.
During summer vacations, the number of bookings of red-eye and budget flights is nearly three times higher than other regular flights, the study said.
Despite that they try to save more money in buying flight tickets, college students prefer to stay at better hotels.
Last year, the per capita spending of college students on hotels reached 234 yuan per night, jumping 17.5% over the previous year, the study showed.
