A: Can you hear a strange noise? B: Now you mention it, I can hear a faint whirring sound. Also, there’s a slight whiff of burnt rubber. A: Uh-oh! I’d better pull over and take a look... OK, sit tight. I’ll pop the hood and take a look at the engine. B: What’s the prognosis? A: I think the fan belt has worn out and caused the engine to overheat. I’d better call a mechanic... A: 你有聽到一種奇怪的噪音嗎?. B: 既然你說了,我確實有聽到微弱的低沉呼呼聲。另外,我還聞到一點點燒焦的橡膠味。. A: 哦哦!我最好停車檢查一下……。好,你坐穩,我要把引擎蓋打開,看看引擎有沒有問題。. B: 你推斷的病情是什麼?. A: 我想應該是風扇的皮帶破損了,導致引擎過熱。我最好打個電話給維修人員……。.

The remake of Mulan struck all the right chords to be a hit in the key Chinese market. Disney cast beloved actor Liu Yifei (劉亦菲) as Mulan and removed a dragon sidekick popular in the animated original to cater to Chinese tastes. Still, the movie drew decidedly mixed reviews after its coronavirus-delayed release in China last week, with thousands panning it online. The movie was rated 4.9 out of 10 by more than 165,000 people on Douban, a leading Web site for film, book and music ratings. Negative comments and jokes about the film outnumbered positive reactions on social media. Mulan has.

Minister of Health and Welfare Chen Shih-chung (陳時中), accompanied by Taipei Deputy Mayor Vivian Huang (黃珊珊), yesterday conducted an inspection tour of Taipei’s Dihua Street (迪化街), talking to vendors and members of the public who expressed concern over the government’s lifting of the ban on imports of US pork products containing ractopamine. The central government is using Dihua Street’s traditional market for a pilot project on labeling indicating the place of origin of pork products. The move came after an announcement by President Tsai Ing-wen’s (蔡英文) administration late last month that it was easing restrictions on imports of pork products with traces.

For the first time in 19 years, there won’t be an Urban Nomad Film Festival due to COVID-19. But the event’s signature genre-bending Freakout Music Festival is still on — although arriving almost six months late — this time packed into a one-day, 15-hour multi-stage music marathon at the usual spot in Tiger Mountain. (Full disclosure: this reporter is playing in the festival with the band All My Boyfriendz.). Organizer David Frazier debated what to do in these dark times, despite Taiwan being relatively safe and one of the few places in the world where events can still go on as.

Wuhan pensioner Zhong Hanneng endured every parent’s worst nightmare when COVID-19 claimed her son in February, and — alongside other bereaved relatives — she wants to sue the local government she blames for his death. However, the relatives have had their lawsuits abruptly rejected, dozens of others face pressure from authorities not to file and lawyers are being warned against helping them, people involved in the effort said. The families accuse the Wuhan City Government and the Hubei Provincial Government of concealing the outbreak when it first emerged there late last year, failing to alert the public and bungling the response, allowing.

Belarusian authorities have charged the opposition leader Maria Kolesnikova with "actions aimed at undermining national security," a charge that carries a maximum sentence of up to five years in prison. The charge, announced by the country’s Investigative Committee, is the latest move in a crackdown on opposition leaders by embattled Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko, who has lost legitimacy among much of the population, but retains the support of law enforcement agencies. Kolesnikova last week thwarted an attempt by Lukashenko’s security agents to forcibly deport her by tearing up her passport at the border with Ukraine. She later said in a statement that security.

US President Donald Trump on Wednesday expressed renewed confidence that a viable COVID-19 vaccine would be ready by next month, directly contradicting a top administration health expert and facing fierce criticism from his Democratic election rival, former US vice president Joe Biden. Trump sowed confusion about the issue with an extraordinary public rebuke of one of his top health experts, who said masks were a leading weapon for fighting the pandemic and that a vaccine was unlikely to be widely available until the middle of next year. "I think he made a mistake when he said that.

About 12 million people in South Africa have "probably" been infected with COVID-19, but that startlingly high number has not caused a similarly high death rate and might indicate a widespread "level of immunity," South African Minister of Health Zweli Mkhize says. More than 20 percent of South Africa’s population of 58 million have had the coronavirus at some point, Mkhize said this week. He cited studies that found the presence of COVID-19 antibodies in blood samples taken from parts of the population.

The man who leaked the "Pentagon Papers" about the Vietnam War on Wednesday defended Julian Assange at his London extradition hearing, saying that WikiLeaks had acted in the public interest and warning that Assange would not receive a fair trial in the US. Australian-born Assange, 49, is fighting to stop being sent to the US, where he is charged with conspiring to hack government computers and breaching an espionage law over the release of confidential cables by WikiLeaks in 2010 to 2011. Daniel Ellsberg, who in 1971 leaked documents known as the Pentagon Papers to the New York Times and other papers,

A mass extinction event sparked by a sudden shift in climate more than 200 million years ago reshaped life on Earth and ushered in the age of the dinosaurs, scientists claim. An international team reviewed geological evidence and the fossil record and found that enormous volcanic eruptions in what is now western Canada coincided with a global loss of plants and animals. While the crisis 233 million years ago wiped out great segments of life, it set the stage for the dinosaurs to take over, and for some of the first mammals, crocodiles and turtles to extend their ranges. "There was clearly a.

Qantas Airways yesterday said that a seven-hour scenic flight over Australia’s Outback and Great Barrier Reef had sold out in 10 minutes, as it joined a growing trend in Asia offering "flights to nowhere" that take off and land at the same airport. Tough border restrictions to keep the COVID-19 pandemic under control have led to a 97.5 percent plunge in international travel in the region, according to the Association of Asia Pacific Airlines. Many frequent flyers miss getting on planes and airlines, including Taiwan’s EVA Airways and Japan’s ANA Holdings, desperate for revenue and to keep their pilots’ licenses current, have.

US Attorney General William Barr told prosecutors to explore aggressive charges against people arrested at demonstrations across the US, even suggesting bringing a rarely used sedition charge, reserved for those who have plotted a threat that posed imminent danger to government authority, according to multiple reports on Wednesday. The move signals a doubling down on Barr’s aggressive approach to the protests. Barr last week told US attorneys from across the country during a conference call that they should seek to pursue federal charges against people who were arrested at demonstrations, even if state charges could also apply, the Wall Street Journal reported. More.

China has locked down a city on its border with Myanmar and launched a campaign to test its entire population of more than 200,000 people. Officials in Ruili, Yunnan Province, said that the city had entered a state of "wartime" defenses against COVID-19 after two new cases emerged among travelers from Myanmar. Residents have been ordered to stay at home and authorities have set up checkpoints to prevent anyone entering or leaving Ruili, and restricting access to border areas nearby.

Brushing off death threats, the face of fighting the COVID-19 pandemic in Belgium battles on, despite living under police protection after attacks on social media. Marc van Ranst is Dutch-speaking Belgium’s best known virologist. He speaks bluntly, delivering the tough messages that politicians would rather be said with finesse or not at all. Opening borders “is dangerous,” stay away from port city Antwerp, cancel summer plans: the virologist never shies from upbraiding Belgians over the airwaves — or on Twitter. In Belgium, the pandemic has already caused nearly 9,935 deaths — one of the highest mortality rates in the world when compared with.

In the Netherlands you can help the planet even after you die — by opting for a "living coffin" made of mushrooms, which speeds up the decomposition of your body. The coffin turns corpses into compost that enriches the soil thanks to mycelium, the root structure of fungi. The "Living Cocoon" is a world first, says Bob Hendrikx, who invented the concept in his student laboratory at Delft Technical University. "This is the world’s first living coffin, and actually last Saturday the first human being in the Netherlands was composted and returned into the cycle of life," he said. The coffin was the final.

For tourists visiting Hualien, Taroko National Park (太魯閣國家公園) is the first order of business. But if you find yourself in the city with half a day to spare — your train back to Taipei will leave mid-afternoon, say — it’s hardly worth busing out to Taroko Gorge. Instead, borrow or rent a bicycle or a scooter, or hail a cab, and set out for one of these attractions. At only one of these places is there an admission charge. CISINGTAN SCENIC AREA. A literal translation of Cisingtan (七星潭) would be “Seven Stars Pond,” but there’s no pond here, just the vast Pacific.

Imagine a painting of a female nude, but with the bare flesh of her legs and body blotched with purple, green and yellow bruises as she lies on the floor and embraces an outline of her country Belarus. The striking protest image, an oil painting by Belarusian artist Yana Chernova, takes aim at what rights groups says is systematic violence and torture used by police to try and quell mass anti-government protests. Tens of thousands of Belarusians have taken part in nationwide protests against Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko for more than five weeks.

Tropical Storm Sally downed trees, flooded streets and homes, and knocked out power, reportedly killing one person, as the former hurricane on Wednesday pounded the US southeast with torrential rain. Sally made landfall overnight near Gulf Shores, Alabama, along the border with Florida as a Category 2 hurricane. Slow-moving Sally, which was subsequently downgraded to a tropical storm, then lingered over parts of southern Alabama and the Florida Panhandle, where it caused severe flooding with copious amounts of rain, the US National Hurricane Center said. "Catastrophic and life-threatening flooding continues over portions of the Florida Panhandle and southern Alabama," the center said. The news.

To say that this year has been eventful for China and the rest of the world would be something of an understatement. First, the US-China trade dispute, already simmering for two years, reached a boiling point as Washington tightened the noose around China’s economy. Second, China unleashed the COVID-19 pandemic on the world, wreaking havoc on an unimaginable scale and turning the People’s Republic of China into a common target of international scorn. Faced with a mounting crisis at home, Chinese President Xi Jinping (習近平) rashly decided to ratchet up military tensions with neighboring countries in a misguided attempt to divert the.

For eight years, then-Japanese prime minister Shinzo Abe had been looking for ways around Japan’s pacifist constitution to bolster the country’s military. In his last full week on the job, he laid the groundwork for a plan to allow preemptive strikes on enemy bases. Abe’s statement on missile defense on Friday last week leaves a big piece of unfinished business for his top aide and likely successor, Japanese Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga [ Editor’s note: Suga was elected on Wednesday to succeed Abe ]. While few expect Suga to share Abe’s zeal for amending the constitution, he is confronted with the same.
