Korean pop group BIGBANG is holding four fan meetings, titled 2016 MADE [V.I.P] TOUR, in Taiwan between Sept. 9 and 11, generating much excitement among fans again. Originally, one of the parties at the Linkou Stadium was scheduled for this afternoon. But many people need to go to work or school today to make up for the extra day off next week for the long holiday weekend of Mid-Autumn Festival.
Since the schedule was announced, the organizer IMEtw had received numerous calls from parents who were concerned about the time. They complained that their children decided to ask for a leave or even skip classes, demanding that the organizer cancel the afternoon party, so young students would not sacrifice their school work for “star chasing.” Under much pressure of public opinion, the organizer decided to cancel the afternoon party eventually.
According to information on Billboard’s Web site, BIGBANG is the K-Pop group holding most live shows in recent years, topping the list with over 100 concerts. Earlier in July, YG Entertainment, the agency of the group, announced a series of activities marking the 10th anniversary of the group’s formation.

Astronomers believe they may have found the first direct evidence of a new planet being born. A dense disc of dust and gas has been spotted surrounding a young star called AB Aurigae, about 520 light years away from Earth. Using the European Southern Observatory’s (ESO) Very Large Telescope (VLT), located in Chile, the researchers observed a spiral structure with a “twist” near the center, which suggests a new world may be in the process of forming. The swirling disc was one of the telltale signs of the star system being born in the constellation of Auriga, the scientists said.
The Dunhua Eslite branch is to shut up shop at the end of this month. During a news conference held on the afternoon of April 23, Mercy Wu, chairwoman of Eslite Spectrum Corp, spoke candidly about the bookstore founded by her father Robert Wu, and about how it stirred up emotions inside her still. She also spoke of her decision, made in this very store, not to study overseas, and instead to stay in Taiwan to run the store with her father. When speaking about the special place the bookstore had in her heart, she compared it to the rose
A : First she wounded her leg, and now she has heart problems. B : I’m not sure how serious it is. It might just be the heat, and the fact that she needs to lose a bit of weight. A : So what are you going to do? B : I don’t want her exerting herself in this heat, or putting weight on that leg. I’m taking her around in a stroller. A : 牠先弄傷自己的腿，現在又有心臟問題。 B : 我不太確定有多嚴重就是了。也許只是天氣太熱，再加上牠需要減一點重。 A : 那你打算怎麼辦？ B : 我不想讓牠在這種高溫底下太過勉強自己，也不想讓體重施加在受傷的那條腿上。所以溜狗時都把牠放在推車裡。 English 英文: Chinese 中文:
