Former New Power Party (NPP) chairman Hsu Yung-ming’s (徐永明) withdrawal from the party over his alleged involvement in a corruption scandal failed to appease some young members, with two Taipei city councilors saying that they have also withdrawn from the party in protest of its handling of Hsu’s case. Hsu was on Tuesday released on bail of NT$800,000. The party confirmed that it had received Hsu’s application to leave the party via fax at 3:50pm yesterday before its Disciplinary Committee’s scheduled meeting at 5pm. Within an hour of the party receiving Hsu’s application, Taipei city councilors Lin Ying-meng (林穎孟) and Huang Yu-fen.

Malaysian police on Tuesday raided the office of news broadcaster al-Jazeera and two local TV stations, seizing computers as part of an investigation into a documentary on undocumented migrants that enraged the government. Al-Jazeera, a Qatari-state owned broadcaster, said in a statement that police seized two computers during the raid, which it called a "troubling escalation" in a government crackdown on media freedom. It urged Malaysian authorities to cease the criminal investigation. However, Malaysian Inspector-General of Police Abdul Hamid Bador yesterday insisted that the investigations into the documentary were being conducted "very professionally" and rejected concerns about worsening media freedom. "It was not.

“Why would anyone want to see this film?” A-long (阿龍), one of the subjects of The Good Daughter (阿紫), asks director Wu Yu-ying (吳郁瑩) after watching the documentary. From a commercial standpoint, A-long is right. The documentary lacks drama, especially compared to the tales we read in the news about Vietnamese brides in Taiwan. The characters in the film gossip endlessly about the fate of these women, but for every one that makes the headlines, there are countless more like the titular Azhe (阿紫), who endures an uneventful, hardscrabble life with a disabled garlic farmer in Yunlin County, while sending as.

SpaceX on Tuesday successfully completed a flight of less than a minute of the largest prototype ever tested of the future rocket Starship, which the company hopes to use one day to colonize Mars. "Mars is looking real," SpaceX founder Elon Musk wrote on Twitter in response to a fan. The current Starship prototype is fairly crude: It is a large metallic cylinder, built in a few weeks by SpaceX teams on the Texas coast, in Boca Chica, but it is still smaller than the actual rocket will be. Several previous prototypes exploded during ground tests, during a learning process of trial and.

Luka Doncic on Tuesday delivered a monster triple-double performance as the Dallas Mavericks bagged their first win of the NBA’s relaunched season in an overtime thriller against the Sacramento Kings. The 21-year-old Slovenian scored 34 points, with 20 rebounds and 12 assists as the Mavericks completed a 114-110 victory to get their campaign back on track in the Western Conference.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi yesterday took center stage at a ceremony laying the foundations for a temple at a flashpoint holy site exactly a year after imposing direct rule on Muslim-majority Kashmir — twin triumphs for his Hindu nationalist government. The site at Ayodhya, and Kashmir, have been two of the most divisive communal issues of the past 30 years in India, and Modi has attempted to draw a line under both. For his fans, both steps confirm Modi — elected to a second-straight term in a landslide victory last year — as a decisive, visionary and heroic leader, and India’s.

“Though Chiang was born in Siberia, she displayed the virtues of a traditional Chinese woman,” said then-president Chen Shui-bian (陳水扁) following the death of Chiang Fang-liang (將方良) in 2004. “She was a good mother and a good wife who always put her family first.”Leaving aside the Confucian morals, there are two striking features about Chen’s statement. Firstly, Chiang Fang-liang was born about as far from Siberia as possible within the former Russian Empire. The only time she ventured east of the Ural mountains was on a train to Vladisvostok. From there, she proceeded by steamer to Shanghai, never to.

It is not often to hear someone talk about how much they enjoyed their time in quarantine — but Pichet Klunchun, a Thai dancer/choreographer/artist, has built his career by going against convention and conventional thinking. I caught up with Pichet — who is back in town to perform his latest work, No. 60 , this weekend as part of the Taipei Arts Festival — by telephone on Saturday last week, just after he had moved out of his quarantine hotel. Spending 14 days in isolation — even from the two others who will be performing with him — was a chance for.

Growing concern over health standards in e-sports has prompted a new federation to pledge to address the problem, as players fall victim to conditions ranging from wrist injuries to obesity, stress and diabetes. The retirement of top Chinese player Jian Zihao, better known by his gaming handle "Uzi," sent tremors through the booming sport, whose revenues are predicted to reach US$1.1 billion this year, according to industry analyst Newzoo. The 23-year-old, hailed as an "icon" of the League of Legends game, stepped away from e-sports in June, saying that "chronic stress, obesity, irregular diet, staying up late and other reasons" had given.

In the regular drumbeat of arrests of alleged Chinese spies, one case last month stood out. It did not involve the US or another rival of China, but Russia, whose security services accused a prominent arctic scientist of selling classified data on technologies for detecting submarines. Meanwhile a court in Kazakhstan in October convicted the Central Asia nation’s preeminent China specialist of espionage, a move widely interpreted at the time as a warning against increased meddling by the superpower next door. Both men maintain their innocence and if China is spying on Russia, Moscow is surely doing the same.

COLOMBIA. Uribe put in house arrest. The Supreme Court on Tuesday placed Senator Alvaro Uribe, a former president, under house arrest as he faces charges of fraud and witness tampering. The court said in a statement that Uribe, who served as president from 2002 to 2010, would be detained at home “and from there can mount his defense with all the guarantees of due process.” The court held a hearing into his case, in which Uribe is accused of using his position as a senator to tamper with a witness. “Being deprived of my freedom is very sad for me, my wife,

A: OK then, tell me what you would do if you hit the jackpot. B: First things first, I would buy a beautiful mansion with a large landscaped garden, including a hedge maze, and a large lake with a family of white swans. A: Wow, you’ve really thought it through in detail.

The challenge to oust Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro has only increased, Venezuelan National Assembly President Juan Guaido said on Tuesday as the administration of US President Donald Trump vowed its continued recognition of the opposition leader as the nation’s interim president, even if his coalition loses control of the Venezuelan Congress — its last major stronghold. Major parties in the opposition led by Guaido have announced plans to boycott upcoming congressional elections, accusing Maduro’s government of hijacking the process. Their decision not to participate throws into question their legitimacy after their terms end in January next year. However, Elliott Abrams, the US Department.

After spending 140 days rowing across the Pacific Ocean without seeing another human being, Latvian adventurer Karlis Bardelis has some valuable tips for those learning to cope with COVID-19 lockdowns. Bardelis started his nearly two-year journey in Peru in July 2018, reaching French Polynesia after nearly five months and finishing in Malaysia in June. Along the way, he was rammed by sharks off Papua New Guinea, had to use a battery to replace a lost anchor and faced some near misses with other boats. His longest stretch on the open sea without seeing anyone lasted nearly five months. "If we can’t change the circumstances,

Of all the land that the Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) acquired following its retreat to Taiwan in 1949, 85 percent was transferred to the party free of charge, while 11 percent was via transactions, the Cabinet’s Ill-gotten Party Assets Settlement Committee said on Tuesday. Of the 11 percent, 68 percent was sold to the party at the price it demanded, with no market competition involved, committee statistics showed. Seventy percent of the transactions involving that 68 percent took place after the KMT had occupied, borrowed or rented the land, the statistics showed. A total of 74 hectares of public land was transferred.
