Baidu came under fire in 2016 when Wei Zexi, a 21-year

old student from Xidian University in Shaanxi province, died from a rare cancer of the soft tissue. Wei was re

searching the disease on Baidu and came across an advertisement for treatments that proved ineffective.

After Wei’s death, Baidu announced a sweeping restructuring and optimization of its medical business, especially regardi

ng its paid listing practices. It also tightened regulations on medical promotion and enforced clear labeling rul

es that differentiate advertisements from credible medical information, according to media reports.

However, medical advertising remains one of the key sources of income for Baidu, and some are still trying to exploit the s

ystem. In April, the police in Shenzhen, Guangdong province, detained a team of medical fraudsters who drove up r

ankings on Baidu’s research results to promote faulty hospitals to patients, local authorities said.

The regulation also called for stricter implementation

 of programs and compliance oversight to ensure that the required funds of investment programs are in place on time.

The approval mechanism for government-invested pro

grams will be further standardized, and major programs must go through procedures suc

h as evaluations by intermediary service institutions, the public and experts, as well as risk assessment.

Government investment funds must prioritize investments into areas where the market cannot effectively allocate res

ources, such social services, public infrastructure and environment protection, the regulation said.

It also calls for equal treatment of various

types of investment entities, adding that authorities should not set up biased conditions.

The premier said in his Government Work Report this year that Chi

na will pursue a proactive fiscal policy with greater intensity and enhance its performance.

The price of carp is low compared with other comme

ial fish, but the ease of catching large quantities makes up for this, both men said.

Irwin has turned down a job in Alaska for the summer. Catching carp in Kentucky is a much easier, he said.

“Here, the weather is warmer, the climate is better and I get to sleep in my own bed at t

he end of the day,” he said, adding that the earnings are comparable to what he would get in Alaska.

Irwin and Berry make a good living catching Asian carp, which

are so abundant in rivers and lakes that they have become a serious ecological pr

oblem for states such as Arkansas, Mississippi, Louisiana, Illinois and Kentucky.

Ron Brooks, fisheries director at the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources, said Asian carp are disru

pting $1 billion worth of recreational and commercial business in western Kentucky alone.

The park is the brainchild of Angie Yu, founder and

Yu came up with the idea of cashing in on the battle against the Asian carp, and in 2011 founded Two Riv

ers Fisheries in Wickliffe, just south of where the Mississippi and Ohio rivers meet.

Yu has a knack for turning waste into profit. She once developed a business that turne

d discarded crab and shrimp shells into glucosamine, a popular supplement used to treat joint pain.

In Iceland, where lumpfish were discarded after their roe was removed for caviar, she exported the leftover fish to China.

Two Rivers Fisheries began processing and exporting carp in 2013. Las

t year, the company processed about 1.17 million kg of the fish. This year, it processed nearly 590,

000 kg in the first quarter. Since starting operations, it has processed 4.53 million kg of carp.

It is the leading fish exporter by volume in Kentucky.

annels and five international rail-sea combined channels to further open up the city.
