When Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras first sat down with top European officials in the middle of the night on Thursday to discuss his country's economic woes, the atmosphere appeared almost light-hearted.
Since winning the election at the end of 2014, the nonpartisan politician and now Taipei Mayor Ko Wen-je has always attracted public attention. Here comes the question: There are and have been hundreds of mayors in every part of Taiwan, so why is Ko singled out all the time? Above all, certain words in his speeches are as if “under the sun;” closely watched by Taiwanese media.
Based on the fact that every single person tells lies, can we really believe what the suspect declares? On March 9, a crime took place in the southern part of Taiwan when an unnamed female university student was brutally killed and her corpse was allegedly burned by the suspect surnamed Wang.
The news of a series of gas explosions shocked Kaohsiung citizens last year. The blasts killed 32 people and led to serious damage. People who live in that area are paying a lot of attention to the government's response.

Afghanistan's long and tortuous road to peace and reconciliation still seems a near mirage as an entrenched terrorist insurgency seems to rebuff political and security gains made by the Kabul government and international military assistance. Still, the U.N. mission in the war-torn South Asian country seems cautiously optimistic and offered a renewed hope for a still complex peace process.
It's a mystery to many: Benjamin Netanyahu's campaign gained steam when he ruled out the creation of a Palestinian state, and he seems determined to continue settling occupied land with Jews.
For more than a decade, there have been well-founded concerns about youth disengagement from formal politics.
Kaohsiung citizens, have you ever been warned about the poor air quality? I think most of us would answer yes to this question, but how many of us have really taken this issue into consideration?
In recent years, the global climate has changed a lot. It has become unpredictable and extreme. I have seen a report about the impact of extreme climate change on Taiwan. Taiwan was one of the first countries to be damaged by extreme climate change. Therefore, when I saw this report, I was afraid that the poor air quality would harm our respiratory system. Not only our health would be affected but the coarse air would make a driver's vision blurred. It is very dangerous. Recently when I went out, I could feel that the air was not fresh and it made me uncomfortable.

Nobody knows when exactly, but the day will eventually come when the Federal Reserve nudges its benchmark lending rate from next to zero to something slightly higher.
