iPass Card accuses EasyCard of being a monopoly, keeps it out of Kaohsiung (2014/09/25)

The EasyCard is Taiwan’s most used stored value card for public transportation fares and is dominant in Taipei. Another stored value card provider based in Kaoshiung, iPass, has exclusive access to the Kaohsiung MRT. Each wants access to the other’s territory, but a breakthrough in the stalemate seems unlikely in the near future.

Have the EasyCard read by a sensor, and a computer displays recorded information, such as the bearer’s blood pressure, height and weight. Though the card’s functions are growing by the day, it still cannot be used on the Kaohsiung MRT system.

There are 48 million EasyCards in circulation, more than 10 times as many as the 4.5 million iPass cards issued. The two companies have tried to discuss terms for cross-use of the cards, but talks broke down over value-added services.

Wang Chih-chun (voice)
iPass Card Spokesman
Taipei Metro stations, they do not offer iPass value-added services. Under these circumstances, what’s there for the iPass to do in Taipei?

iPass Corporation says Taipei Metro spent NT$30 million two years ago to develop equipment compatible with different stored value cards and received government subsidies for the project. It should now allow other types of cards in rather than letting EasyCard dominate. But what about Kaohsiung?

Chen Chih-hao
EasyCard Spokesman
We hope the two cities can agree that if access to Kaohsiung is given then access will be given to Taipei and vice versa based on the principles of fairness and reciprocity.

下雪了: 深夜兩點走在異鄉繁華的街道. 五光十色的招牌炫目到連眼睛都快張不開了. 突然間臉上感到冰涼. 我仰頭望向天空. ''啊 ! 下雪了!! ' 我啞然著望著這片片雪花, 心想距離上次在田納西看到的第一場初雪, 離現在已經有十三年了! '可不是嗎?' 你低聲的在我身旁回應著. 望著這四周飄零的雪花, 感受著臉上點點的冰涼-----這可真是流逝的生命中最美的註記啊! 我兩無言的望著對方,繼續感受著這美好的片刻.

Taipei International Invention Show features special Agricultural Pavilion (2014/09/18)

The 2014 Taipei International Invention Show and Techno Mart officially opened to the public today. This year the Agricultural Pavilion at the show was of particular interest, displaying many examples of new agricultural technology.

The opening of the Taipei International Invention Show took place today, and Deputy Agriculture Minister Chen Wen-te was on hand for the opening of the special Agriculture Pavilion. This year, three different themes were on display at the pavilion: breeding, food safety, and health. This special exhibit caught the attention of many people passing by the pavilion.

A rope is connected to this clicker producing a 100-120db noise, a sort of solar powered bird alarm, helping farmers keep birds away from their rice field.

And here we see this fruit which fits in the palm of one’s hand. It’s the Hualien No. 5 bitter melon, which only takes 3 months to harvest and is considered a health food.

Chen Wen-te
Deputy Agriculture Minister
This year there are 47 items featuring agricultural technology on display. I think all of these items are appropriate for daily life, and the future development of the (agriculture) industry. So we are actively pursuing this platform to promote our achievements.

The hard work of farmers in cooperation with the efforts of the Council of Agriculture have helped Taiwan make advances in agricultural technology, benefiting both consumers and those who work in the fields.

TSMC opts for electric vehicles to shuttle staff around its facilities at Hsinchu Science Park (2014/09/19)

In an effort to reduce carbon emissions, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) has been promoting the use of electric-powered vehicles. TSMC has given up on diesel powered shuttle buses and switched to more environmentally friendly, electric-powered vehicles to transport its employees around its factory grounds at Hsinchu Science Park.

Passengers on this shuttle bus will notice two things that make for an especially pleasant ride. There is no loud engine noise, nor is there any exhaust smoke. The vehicle, which is used by TSMC as transport for its employees at the Hsinchu Science Park, runs solely on electric power.

In a bid to reduce carbon emissions, TSMC contracted RAC Electric Vehicles to build more environmentally friendly transport for its employees, which was funded with a two-year grant from the Ministry of Economics. TSMC previously used nine diesel-power vehicles at its factory grounds, but now uses these electrically powered shuttle buses exclusively. With a passenger volume of 3,500 persons per day, the buses are helping the company to significantly reduce carbon emissions.

Connie Ma
TSMC Human Resources
The vehicle reduces carbon emissions by 200 metric tons. That’s the equivalent of 20,000 thousand trees, or twice the size of Da-an Park in Taipei.

TSMC says it only costs just NT$2 dollars per kilometer to run its electric vehicle. By comparison, a vehicle running on diesel fuel costs 5.5 NT dollars per kilometer, making the new shuttle buses more cost-efficient.

Raymond Tsai
RAC Electric Vehicles
The vehicle can be charged at night, during off-peak hours for electricity use. One charge will lasts about an entire day.

Changhua pharmacist manages a trip around the world on a shoestring budget (2014/09/15)

Many of us would love to travel around the world, but we often give up such a dream because of the cost. But a pharmacist from Changhua managed to overcome this obstacle, spending just NT$800,000 to travel to 26 countries in one year.

From Mount Kilimanjaro in the African country of Tanzania to an active volcano in Ethiopia and a desert scene filled with cactus trees -- Chen Wei-ting has been to all of these remote places, as part of a year-long trip to 26 countries. The pharmacist accomplished his dream trip on a budget of just NT$850,000.

Chen Wei-ting
Traveler
I found a cheap plane ticket and started planning from there. I tried my best to go in just one direction and not backtrack on my route. Since I was traveling alone, I used couch-surfing websites to find accommodation or else I stayed in local hostels. That was my goal.

Chen’s trip compares favorably to a tour from a travel agency. A typical package that takes one traveler to 14 countries in 60 days costs NT$1.2 million. Chen’s budget of 850,000 has impressed at least one person in the travel industry.

Yu Kuo-chen
Travel Agency
It’s quite difficult to do what he did. To spend just over NT$800,000 for a trip around the world, you have to be quite frugal. When you’re abroad, there are many costs that affect your budget, especially taking into account food, lodging and transport.
Yu thinks travelers should take note. If you’re on a shoestring budget for a trip like Chen’s, expect to compromise quality when it comes to food and lodging. Also required: a spirit that can endure hardship.
