Today's Birthday (Jan. 13)
Just because you're right doesn't mean everyone will agree with you.
You'll still have to convince them. So be patient as well as smart.
Aries (March 21-April 19) 白羊座
It doesn't seem like anybody can get along today. Don't foolishly fan the flames, listen and find a service to provide. They'll all love you for that.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) 金牛座
Be patient with yourself. Be a gentle tutor. Don't beat yourself up if the material seems to be hard to learn. Keep at it.
Gemini (May 21-June 21) 雙子座
There's money coming in, but expenses are high. Monitor resources carefully. Accept new assignments -- keep working.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) 獅子座
Don't assume that what you see is all there is. There's more going on behind the scenes. Take that into consideration.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) 處女座
Sure, it's important to have an active social life. You can make all sorts of important contacts. Don't overlook your family, though. They're really the most important.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) 天秤座
Careful scheduling is required to avoid hurt feelings. Don't be off doing business while your family's waiting for you.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) 天蠍座
You may not get as far as you'd hoped, or stay as long as you want. You can still have a wonderful time, however, with the right attitude.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) 射手座
The problem is, you don't have as much as you think, so be careful. You could go over your budget and into your savings in no time.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) 山羊座
You're intelligent, tough and charming. That's a powerful combination. You'll have the advantage in convincing your opposition to give up.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) 水瓶座
The work you're doing now requires great sensitivity. There's also an important aspect that's not easily understood. Delve beneath the surface.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) 雙魚座
You're always at your best when you focus your attention on others. Also learn to delegate. You can't be all things to all people.

One category would comprise those countries with very few confirmed COVID-19 cases, such as New Zealand and Palau. Travelers from the countries in this category would only need to practice self-health management,” Centers for Disease Control Deputy Director-General Chuang Jen-hsiang (莊人祥) told a Legislative Yuan seminar hosted by

SECURITY CONCERNS: The Telecom Technology Center ran black-box tests for the Executive Yuan on devices and software from Chinese, US and South Korean firms Network devices from several Chinese manufacturers are insecure and allow personal information to be leaked, testing commissioned by the Executive Yuan has shown. A variety of devices and software, including apps, from Chinese, US and South Korean manufacturers that are used by government agencies at the central and local level were subjected to black-box testing — in which the functionality of an application is examined without knowing about its internal structure, an information-security official said yesterday on condition of anonymity.
