Overseas branches of the nation’s banks reported a pretax loss of NT$50 million (US$1.69 million) in June as banks suffered sour loans amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the Financial Supervisory Commission (FSC) said yesterday. That was the first loss for banks’ overseas branches during a single month in more than three years, the commission said. The commission attributed the loss to CTBC Bank (中國信託銀行), which last month wrote off half of its US$90 million in loans to Singapore oil trader Hin Leong Trading Pte Ltd (興隆貿易) after writing off the first half of the bad loan in May, as the debtor filed for.

We can watch the draw live on television. B: Great. Have you thought about what you would spend the money on if you win? A: I’ll quit my job, pay off my mortgage and go on a world tour. I’ll keep the rest of the money in the bank and live off the interest until I pop my clogs. B: Seriously? That’s so boring, no imagination at all. (Edward.

As Japan marks 75 years since the devastating attacks on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the last generation of nuclear bomb survivors is working to ensure their message lives on after them. The " hibakusha " — literally "person affected by the bomb" — have for decades been a powerful voice calling for the abolition of nuclear weapons. There are an estimated 136,700 left, many of whom were infants or soon to be born at the time of the attacks. The average age of a survivor now is a little over 83, according to the Japanese Ministry of Health, lending an urgency as they share their testimonies.

The stadium announcer at the Internazionali Femminili di Palermo on Monday wished a warm and welcome return to tennis lovers as the WTA tournament in Italy started five months after the past one, with bottles of hand sanitizer attached to the nets. The event comes just weeks before the US Open and Roland Garros double-header, but lost original top seed Simona Halep to lingering health concerns, while an unnamed player withdrew from qualifying after testing positive for COVID-19. There were about 350 fans allowed into a venue built for 1,500. Sofia Kenin and Elina Svitolina captured titles on March 8, the last day.

A stay-at-home-mother, Svetlana Tikhanovskaya never had presidential ambitions, but in a tale worthy of a Hollywood script, in a matter of weeks the 37-year-old has gone from an unknown to the strongest rival to Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko, who is seeking a sixth term in Sunday’s elections. Tikhanovskaya says she is contesting the election to get her jailed blogger husband out of prison and win much-needed freedom for the former Soviet country of 9.5 million people. "I love my husband very much so I am continuing what he started," she said. "I love Belarusians and I want to give them an opportunity to.

When scientists first unearthed fossils of a horned dinosaur called Centrosaurus in the badlands of Dinosaur Provincial Park in Canada’s Alberta Province in 1989, they spotted a badly malformed leg bone they figured was a healed fracture. A fresh examination shows something different, researchers said on Monday. The malformation was a manifestation of osteosarcoma, an aggressive bone cancer, making this Centrosaurus , which lived 76 million years ago, the first known example of a dinosaur afflicted by malignant cancer. About 6m long, Centrosaurus was a four-legged beaked plant-eating Cretaceous Period dinosaur possessing a long horn above its nose and a bony frill above.

Andrei Svechnikov on Monday scored the first hat-trick of his NHL career as the Carolina Hurricanes moved to within one win of the Stanley Cup playoffs with a 4-1 rout of the New York Rangers. The 20-year-old winger’s superb display of finishing sent the Rangers spinning to defeat in game 2 of the qualifying competition at the Scotiabank Arena in Toronto. Sebastian Aho set up all three of Svechnikov’s goals, while Jordan Martinook was the other Hurricanes scorer. The Hurricanes lead the series 2-0. Svechnikov said afterward that his hat-trick meant more coming against Rangers goalkeeper Henrik Lundqvist, a veteran Swedish international. "I’m excited to.

Scott Saulters wasn’t sure if his film had just taken one of the two top prizes at a recent film competition. Although Saulters has been in Taiwan for 15 years and is proficient in Mandarin, the award ceremony for the inaugural "Bi Tian Iann" (眯電影) short film contest was conducted entirely in Hoklo (also known as Taiwanese), a language he can’t speak. "I thought I heard it, but I didn’t want to look too excited," he says. Despite his limited command of the tongue, Saulter’s entry, Wu Yu Tzu (烏魚子, mullet roe), took first place in the amateur category of the.

A US federal judge on Monday ruled that it is unconstitutional to deny Puerto Ricans living in the US territory access to three federal welfare programs in a major decision cheered by many. However, the judge also granted a two-month administrative stay of the injunction at the federal government’s request, which means the decision for now will apply only to the nine plaintiffs in the case. Legal experts said that they expect the US government to appeal the ruling, and if unsuccessful, to take it as far as the US Supreme Court given the millions of dollars at stake. "It’s a precedent, it’s.

Pipe by precious pipe, the organ that once thundered through Notre Dame Cathedral is being taken apart after last year’s devastating fire. The mammoth task of dismantling, cleaning and reassembling France’s largest musical instrument started on Monday and is expected to last nearly four years. Once restored, it would take six months just to tune the organ, according to the state agency overseeing Notre Dame’s restoration. Its music is not expected to resound again through the medieval Paris monument until 2024, to the dismay of the cathedral’s dedicated organists. "It’s a very powerful organ, but with also a lot of poetry," said Johann.

Russia’s apparent test-firing of an anti-satellite weapon in outer space on July 15, as alleged by the US and the UK, could be dismissed as another of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s annoying provocations. That would be a mistake. The alleged new space weapon should be seen in the broader context of a rapidly evolving, high-tech, high-risk international arms race involving all the major nuclear powers that, largely undiscussed, is spinning out of control. This week sees the 75th anniversary of the US atomic bomb attacks on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan, that killed more than 200,000 people, but the absence of public.

Europe is sitting on a wealth of data that is the 21st-century equivalent of a precious metal mine during the gold rush. However, instead of exploiting it themselves Europeans may be allowing US tech giants to gain control of all the excavation equipment, some experts said, pointing to a flurry of European companies announcing deals with US tech players for cloud services. Renault, Orange, Deutsche Bank and Lufthansa plumped for Google Cloud.

Police in Victoria were yesterday given "extraordinary powers" to enforce limitations on people’s movement and to issue individuals on-the-spot fines of up to A$5,000 (US$3,569), as the state recorded 11 more COVID-19 deaths and 439 additional cases of the virus overnight. The A$4,957 penalty, which can be issued for breaching quarantine and isolation orders, is the largest on-the-spot fine on the statute books in Victoria. "If there were repeat breaches, if there were particularly selfish behavior, like for instance, going to work when you had the virus, then there is the alternative pathway and that is, of course, taking you to the.

In a gesture of reconciliation, two prominent Muslims who lived through deadly riots following the razing of a mosque in northern India in 1992 plan to attend the foundation-laying ceremony today for a Hindu temple on the same site, they said. Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, whose Bharatiya Janata Party has been leading the demand for a temple there dedicated to the god-king Ram, is expected to be the chief guest at the event in the town of Ayodhya in Uttar Pradesh. Construction was made possible by a verdict late last year from the Supreme Court of India awarding the disputed site.

The US dairy industry has a familiar question for you: “Got milk?”Six years after the popular tagline was retired, “Got milk?” advertisements are back. A dairy industry-funded group is reviving the campaign, hoping to prolong the boost milk has gotten during the COVID-19 pandemic. US milk sales have been in freefall for decades as choices grew and consumers turned to soda, juices and plant-based alternatives like soy milk. Dean Foods, the nation’s biggest milk producer, filed for bankruptcy protection in November last year. Borden Dairy, another major producer, followed with its own bankruptcy in January. Then came the pandemic, and milk sales.

The exclusive group of film journalists that awards the Golden Globes was accused on Monday of sabotaging non-members while gorging on lavish perks and unparalleled access to Hollywood stars. An anti-trust lawsuit filed against the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) said the organization illegally monopolized entertainment reporting in Los Angeles while creating near-impossible barriers to entry for new members. "All year long, HFPA members enjoy all-expenses-paid trips to film festivals around the world where the studios treat them lavishly and accommodate their every desire," the suit brought in federal court in Los Angeles by Norwegian entertainment journalist Kjersti Flaa said. "Qualified applicants for.

China could take aim at US journalists in Hong Kong, if the US does not renew visas for Chinese journalists, Global Times editor-in-chief Hu Xijin (胡錫進) said. "From what I know, given that the US side hasn’t renewed visa of Chinese journalists, Chinese side has prepared for the worst scenario that all Chinese journalists have to leave the US," Hu said yesterday on Twitter.

North Korea is pressing on with its nuclear weapons program and several countries believe it has "probably developed miniaturized nuclear devices to fit into the warheads of its ballistic missiles," according to a confidential UN report. The report by an independent panel of experts monitoring UN sanctions said the countries, which it did not identify, believed North Korea’s past six nuclear tests had likely helped it develop miniaturized nuclear devices. Pyongyang has not conducted a nuclear test since September 2017. The interim report was on Monday submitted to the 15-member UN Security Council North Korea sanctions committee. "The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.
