Section break ---- C*News Intro I'm ... w/ the top of the hour news ..... ---- E*Int'l Header Starting off with a look at this hour's headline, Venezuela's President Nicolas Maduro has vowed to defeat a "crazed minority" that wants to remove him from power. But first, in local news. ---- E*Tai-Ex opening The Tai-Ex opened up 22-points this morning from yesterday's close, at 10,328 on turnover of 1.1-billion N-T. The market lost ground Tuesday on the back of a downturn (下跌) in U-S markets overnight and as the bellwether electronics sector pushed the broader market lower. Analysts say listed companies on the main board (上市公司) will announce their January sales reports by March 10 and many investors will remain cautious before those reports are released. ---- E*Same-sex Marriage Draft Bill Moves to Second Reading Lawmakers have voted to send a draft bill legalizing same-sex marriage to a second reading. Although the K-M-T and People First Party had proposed sending the bill back to the Procedure Committee for further review, the D-P-P's majority in the Legislative Yuan pushed it forward. "The Enforcement Act of Judicial Yuan Interpretation No. 748" is now expected to undergo extensive (廣泛的) discussion and an article-by-article review (逐條審查). Sources say the bill is expected to pass its third reading following the review period and could become law before mid-April, long before the May 24 deadline set by the Constitutional Court. ---- E*Carrefour May Purchase Taiwan Sugar Stores French retail giant Carrefour is looking to expand its chain in Taiwan by buying Taiwan Sugar's stores. TaiSugar has been losing money in recent years with its five hypermarts and five supermarkets islandwide. The combined loss of 300 million NT last year alone forced the state-run company to seek a buyer, and in late 2018 it started negotiations with Carrefour, one of the world's largest hypermart groups . Local media reports said Carrefour is happy to take over TaiSugar stores, but remains reluctant to continue the employment of their current staff. The report says details of the deal are expected to be finalized (完成) during the second quarter of the year. (JL) ---- E*Venezuela Crisis Continues Turning to world news.... Venezuela's President Nicolas Maduro has vowed to defeat a "crazed minority 瘋狂少數" that wants to remove him from power. In a challenge to opposition leader Juan Guaido, he has called for "anti-imperialist marches 反帝國主義遊行" on Saturday to coincide with anti-government protests. Maduro's comments are the first since Guaido defied him and returned to the country on Monday. Meeting trade union leaders, Guaido told public workers to defy management orders and observe a partial strike (部分罷工). As head of the opposition-led National Assembly, Guaido proclaimed himself Venezuela's interim president (過渡時期總統) in January after the legislature declared Maduro's re-election last year illegitimate (非法). ---- E*US will Ramp Up Sanctions on N. Korea US President Donald Trump’s national security adviser, John Bolton, says the United States would look at ramping up (提高) sanctions on North Korea if Pyongyang did not scrap its nuclear weapons program. Bolton says following the Hanoi summit between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, Washington would see whether Pyongyang is committed to giving up its “nuclear weapons program .” He adds that if they’re not willing to do it, then they’re not going to get relief from the crushing economic sanctions (強大破壞力的經濟制裁) that have been imposed on them. Bolton is seen as a hardliner (強硬派) who has advocated a tough approach to North Korea in the past. His comments came days after the Feb. 27-28 denucleari-zation summit between Trump and Kim broke down. ---- E*Peru's Military to Protect Amazon Peru is taking a new approach to combating rampant illegal mining that threatens the delicate Amazon rainforest: Send in the military. Officials inaugurated (建立) the first of four military bases Tuesday where soldiers will use drones and satellite images to protect the Amazon. The unprecedented move comes two weeks after authorities evicted (趕出去) thousands of illegal gold miners blamed with contaminating Amazon lands and rivers with mercury (汞). Each of the four bases will house 100 soldiers, 50 police officers and a prosecutor. More than half of Peru lies within the Amazon biome (生物群落), which has undergone a dramatic transformation as ranching (見農場) and illegal mining expand. ---- E*WEATHER AM .....
