Section break ---- C*News Intro I'm ... w/ the top of the hour news ..... ---- E*EZ NEWS FEBRUARY 19, 2019 ---- T*Tai-Ex opening The Tai-Ex opened up 6-points this morning from yesterday's close, at 10,152 on turnover of 1.2-billion N-T. The market closed above the 10,100-point mark Monday on the back of gains posted by U-S stock markets at the end of last week amid optimism toward a possible trade deal between Washington and Beijing. While sentiment toward the electronics sector was unaffected (未受影響) after Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing cut its sales forecast (預測) for the first quarter due to a production interruption (中斷), as buying in tech stocks pushed the broader market higher. ---- E*Bill Aimed at Barring China Residency Holders Running for Office The government wants to stop anyone who has a Chinese residence permit from being a public official in Taiwan. The Cabinet is working on a bill that requires people to give up the Chinese permit before running in an election or taking a job as a public employee. The bill stipulates that unless the Chinese permit is relinquished (放棄), the card holder cannot take part in any public election or serve as a public employee, such as public school teacher or member of the Armed forces. Cabinet spokesperson Kolas Yotaka says people who have a Chinese residency card must also tell Taiwan authorities that they want to run for public positions. The bill is one of 47 that lawmakers are seeking to prioritize (優先) for review during the current legislative session, which began last Friday. ---- E*Environmentalists Slam Plans to Install Generators on Wetland Environmental groups are against plans by Tai-Power to set up natural gas generators in a wetland (濕地) area. Tai-Power says it will build three natural gas-fired power generators on land close to the Yon-Gan Wetland. The generators are scheduled to start working in 2023 to replace the first and second coal-fired generators at the Hsin-Da Power Plant. But environmental groups say the Yong-Gan Wetland is an important area were birds live over the winter. The Yongan Wetland was designated as an important bird and biodiversity area by BirdLife International in 1999. An environmental assessment (評定) meeting will be held today for the project. ---- E*US Trump Tells Maduro to Step Down US President Donald Trump is telling Venezuelan President Nicholas Maduro to step down (下台). The AP's Ed Donahue reports. < [CLIP] Slug: > ---- E*Israel Group Hopes to Land on Moon A nonprofit consortium (財團、合伙) from Israel wants to launch the first private aircraft to land on the moon. SpaceIL and state-owned Israel Aerospace Industries say the landing craft will take off from Florida on Thursday. It will be carried by a SpaceX Falcon rocket, travelling for weeks to get to the moon. The spacecraft will slingshot (彈射) around the Earth at least six times in order to reach the moon and land on its surface on April 11-th. If this mission is successful, Israel will become the fourth country to land a spacecraft on the moon, after the Soviet Union, United States and China. ---- C*News Outro That was the I-C-R-T news Check in again tomorrow for our simplified version of the news, uploaded every day in the afternoon.
