Chinese Rights Lawyer, Li Heping, Gets Suspended Prison Sentence

HONG KONG — One of China’s most prominent human rights lawyers was given a suspended three-year prison sentence on Friday after being convicted of subversion charges. The lawyer, Li Heping, who has been in detention since 2015, received a four-year reprieve, a court in the port city of Tianjin said in a statement. That means he will not have to serve the sentence if he stays out of legal trouble during that time.

Science Knows You Need to Get a Life Outside of Work. This Is How You Do It.

If you’re like most employed Americans, the majority of your day — close to 9 hours — is spent working. If you’re like most entrepreneurs (including myself), add three to four hours to that number. That doesn’t leave a whole lot of time for socializing, being with your family or progressing on a hobby or passion project, kicking back and relaxing, or working at your hobby. Even worse? Americans are putting off retirement by continuing to work into their seventies and eighties. Is this because we’re workaholics? Not exactly. Unlike most countries around the world, we…

Eurozone inflation picks up again

Eurozone inflation rebounded in April, with the annual rate climbing to 1.9% after taking a surprising tumble to 1.5% in the previous month. That pushes annual consumer price rises closer to the ECB’s target of just under 2%. Reason for the spike? The main force was a big increase in energy costs, which were 7.5% higher.

Meet the People Who Train the Robots (to Do Their Own Jobs)

At an employee meeting late last year, the agents debated what it meant to be human, and what a human travel agent could do that a machine couldn’t. While Harrison could comb through dozens of hotel options in a blink, it couldn’t match the expertise of, for example, a human agent with years of experience booking family vacations to Disney World. The human can be more nimble — knowing, for instance, to advise a family that hopes to score an unobstructed photo with the children in front of the Cinderella…
