Section break ---- C*News Intro I'm ... w/ the top of the hour news ..... ---- E*EZ NEWS JUNE 5, 2019 ---- E*Tai-Ex Makes Gains on Tuesday's Declines The Tai-Ex opened up 63-points this morning from yesterday's close, at 10,497 on turnover of 2.5-billion N-T. The market was lower Tuesday, as investors sold their stocks in the bellwether electronics sector after big losses for tech stocks in the US market overnight. Analysts say investors are cautious (謹慎) because of the ongoing trade dispute between the United States and China. They say there is a lot of worry over a slowdown for economic growth (發展、成長) around the world. ---- E*AIT Head Reiterates US Neutrality in 2020 Presidential Election American Institute in Taiwan Director Brent Christensen is once again talking about Washington being neutral on Taiwan's upcoming (即將到來) presidential election. Christensen says he often meets with officials from different political parties. This helps him better understand Taiwan's politics. But he says the US "takes no position on the elections, or the processes by which they are conducted (進行)." This comes after TV political commentator Yang Xian-hong claimed AIT said it was worried about the DPP's presidential primary. The AIT director says the US looks forward to working with whomever Taiwan voters choose in next year's elections. ---- E*Researchers Working to Predict and Slow ALS Progression An associate research fellow at Academia Sinica says Taiwan scientists are getting closer to finding ways to know how A-L-S will progress (進展) after a patient is diagnosed (確診). Chen Jun-an says experiments on mice show that if a certain type of molecule can be restored (修復) through gene therapy, the disease progresses more slowly. Chen says researchers have found a group of motor neurons that are likely to be the first to break down when ALS occurs. But he also says the researchers will have to do more studies on animal cells, before moving to human cells, and eventually to clinical trials (臨床試驗). ---- E*US Parkland Shooting Deputy Charged The former Florida deputy who stayed outside and did not confront the shooter or protect students during the February 2018 Parkland shooting has been charged with crimes. 17 people died and 17 more were injured in the shooting. Our correspondent Jagruti Dave reports... < [CLIP] Slug: > ---- E*Canada Aboriginal Women Disappearance Investigated The head of the Organization of American States says he would like to set up a group of experts to look into the disappearances and deaths of indigenous women in Canada. OAS Secretary General Luis Almagro wrote a letter to Canada's foreign minister about this. This comes after a Canadian public inquiry report was issued Monday, saying the problem is so serious it amounts (等同、等於) to ``genocide.'' Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said he accepts the results of the report, and will create a national action plan. ---- E*Israel Gay Mass Wedding Hundreds of Israelis took part in a gay mass wedding (群眾婚禮) in Tel Aviv. They are also demanding the right to same-sex marriage. The wedding on Tuesday was an unofficial ceremony for 23 gay couples, who walked down the aisle, took vows, and danced at a banquet. They were cheered by family, friends, and supporters. This comes ahead of the country's annual (週年) pride parade, set for June 14th. ---- 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.
