Van der Sar dismisses Barca interest in Onana

first_imgAjax CEO Edwin van der Sar says the club hope to keep goalkeeper Andre Onana for “as long as possible” amid rumours Barcelona want to re-sign him.The Cameroon international moved to Amsterdam from Barca in 2015 and took over as the undisputed No.1 the following season after Jasper Cillessen went to Camp Nou.With over 100 appearances for the Eredivisie giants, the 22-year-old is contracted to 2021 and Van der Sar is confident he will stay put for now.

Lilian’s son who is top of the Bundesliga with Borussia Monchengladbach Brazil, beware! Messi and Argentina out for revenge after Copa controversy Best player in MLS? Zlatan wasn’t even the best player in LA! “I think Andre is fantastic,” Van der Sar told  Goal .”He came to Ajax aged 18 or 19 and the way he developed and the natural attributes that he already had, his speed, his reaction and I think he set himself as a great goalkeeper.”He was in a rush to play first-team football quickly, but I think the level that he composed himself and that first year, playing straight away the Europa League final was a great start.”Last year was a difficult season but this year again he has proven to be extremely valuable for the team and, besides that, he is a great guy.”I think there are always a lot of rumours about players from Ajax. We develop great players, not only in Amsterdam but hopefully also in Cape Town and there is interest in a lot of our players, but we like to keep them for as long as possible.” A legendary shot stopper at Ajax, Manchester United and Netherlands, Van der Sar was known as a keeper capable of using the ball at his feet.Goalkeepers of that profile have become more popular in recent years as well as more expensive, with Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea spending big to fill the role last summer.And Van der Sar believes the increase in their value will only increase.”I think on one end, we need to understand that goalkeeping is an art and is also a very important position to have in your club,” he said.”And the demand is there that clubs can ask the money they receive now for goalkeepers like Liverpool and Man City.”But the level goes up and also the type of goalkeeping is not only about shot stopping but it is about distribution and helping the team out. “That was a part of my game and I am happy to see that it is prolonging and progressing along the way.”last_img read more

Pep: ‘Almost impossible’ to battle Barca & Madrid for signings

first_imgPep Guardiola insists he is not disappointed to see Manchester City target Frenkie de Jong move to Barcelona, but warned that the Premier League champions will find it “almost impossible” to sign the world’s best players for a price they deem reasonable.City were in the race to sign De Jong all the way up until Barca made a big-money move in the past few days, with the Catalans offering to pay Ajax more than the previously agreed £61 million (€70m/$81m) fee, and upping the Dutchman’s wages to between £260,000 and £300,000 per week.Guardiola had previously urged City to be “quicker and more efficient” in their attempts to ward off Barca and Real Madrid in the transfer market and that is a theme he returned to on Friday. Article continues below Editors’ Picks ‘There is no creativity’ – Can Solskjaer get Man Utd scoring freely again? ‘Everyone legged it on to the pitch!’ – How Foden went from Man City superfan to future superstar Emery out of jail – for now – as brilliant Pepe papers over Arsenal’s cracks What is Manchester United’s ownership situation and how would Kevin Glazer’s sale of shares affect the club? City’s transfer policy dictates that they will not pay above what they consider to be a fair price for new players, a stance that has ensured their highest transfer outlay is £60m (€69m/$79m) – much lower than the likes of Paris Saint-Germain, Juventus, Real Madrid, Manchester United and Barca.But Guardiola now suggests that City could have to start looking at younger prospects rather than established stars, because the Blues are unwilling to pay the type of fees that rival clubs do.”The transfer market, the salaries, increases a lot,” the Catalan said. “After Neymar at PSG, it increased to incredible levels. Unfortunately that’s why we spend a lot to change the team (average age). We have to be quicker and smarter and try to buy the players.”We have to adapt. It’s difficult to buy top, top players at a good price. It’s almost impossible. Maybe we have to trust in the young players and help them develop their own personality here.”He added: “I said many times, Barcelona and Madrid it’s impossible to fight against them. For the prestige, the incredible league, the incredible clubs they are. The players have to take their own decisions. When they don’t want to come it’s because they want another place. There are other options and we are going to try if we believe we need players in that position.”Frenkie De Jong BarcelonaCity have been scouring the market for potential reinforcements in midfield and at left-back, and are likely to face a re-run of the De Jong saga in their attempts to lure Matthijs de Ligt from Ajax.Bayern Munich, Paris Saint-Germain, Juventus and Barcelona were all in the race for De Jong at one stage and that is the case for De Ligt, too.That could pose further problems for City, with Guardiola explaining that the club do not want to break their wage structure on new signings.Kevin De Bruyne is currently City’s top earner with a contract worth nearly £300,000 per week after all possible bonuses are factored in.Raheem Sterling and Sergio Aguero are also on big money at the Etihad Stadium but City are reluctant to offer prospective new signings similar deals; 12 months ago they walked away from the opportunity to sign Alexis Sanchez after the Chilean’s agent wanted them to match a major counter-offer from Manchester United.City have also seen two attempts to sign Kylian Mbappe falter, and it is believed they were reluctant to make De Jong, 21, one of their highest earners.”I think we try to keep the harmony in the locker room with the wages,” he said. “When you have no balance with that then there is always a problem with the mood in the locker room.”One of the good things that City have done is keeping that balance. The reality is that it’s not just one or two teams paying a lot on wages. There are many. Many, many. Before the rumours was that it was just PSG and Manchester City. That is over. Everybody can pay a lot in fees and wages. It’s not just in England, it’s in Italy, in Spain, France. Maybe not in Germany.”There are many and sometimes we can’t compete with that. That’s why we have to be quicker, faster and don’t get nervous.”Guardiola says he does not know how City can be quicker and more efficient with their transfer dealings but insists he would be happy with his squad even if no new players were to be signed in the summer.“I don’t know! The others are quicker and smarter, like we try to do. In the market there are many players, in positions we need, but even next season if we can’t take anyone then the squad remains good. I’m so satisfied for what City has done. We cannot forget we only bought one player this season. We’ll see what happens in the summer. We’ll see the behaviour of the players in the locker room, their desire to stay and help the club – not just me and their mates, but the club.”last_img read more

Third quarter fiscal update shows Alberta spending more but saving more

first_imgEDMONTON, A.B. — New numbers show Alberta’s economy continues to dig itself out of the deep hole caused by crashing oil prices as Premier Rachel Notley’s government both spends and saves more.Finance Minister Joe Ceci says the province is on track for a $9.1-billion deficit when the budget year ends March 31. That’s $1.4 billion lower than the deficit expected when Ceci tabled this year’s budget last spring.Ceci notes forecasts also point to an economic rebound as production goes up and unemployment falls. The house resumes sitting March 8. Ceci is to bring in the 2018-19 budget later in the spring. “Nearly 90,000 full-time jobs were created over the last year and Alberta’s GDP growth led the country at 4.5 percent in 2017,” Ceci said in a statement Wednesday after releasing the third-quarter update to the 2017-18 budget. “We will continue to work hard to ensure this recovery reaches all Albertans.”The province is expected to take in an extra $1.9 billion this year on $46.9 billion in revenue – mainly due to higher than expected oil revenue and returns on investments. Spending is also rising to $55.9 billion – about $1 billion more than projected at budget – to cover increases in services for children, people with disabilities, and for employment and income supports.The debt is going to hit almost $42 billion this year. Debt payments will be $1.4 billion. Alberta will bring in $883 million from crude oil royalties, almost double what it had expected, although revenue from bitumen royalties will be $2.4 billion – about $188 million less than projected.Oil revenues were hampered this year by the price discount Alberta’s blended bitumen sells at compared with the benchmark North American West Texas Intermediate price. The discount is tied mainly to pipeline bottlenecks that drive up the price of getting Alberta’s heavy oil to U.S. refineries and ports.The NDP has been running high deficits throughout its term in government. The government says slashing budgets and jobs would only worsen the situation and kill an economic recovery.The province has been saving money by negotiating contracts with zero pay increases for teachers and nurses and other health professionals,. It has also axed redundant agencies and committees and consolidated other programs and services.Alberta has been hit with multiple credit downgrades, however, which have increased the cost of borrowing. Ceci has promised to present a more detailed plan to get the budget back in balance by 2023.last_img read more

UK diplomatic protection of jailed woman wont ease things Iran

first_imgTehran: Iran’s foreign ministry warned the UK on Tuesday that giving diplomatic protection to a British-Iranian mother jailed in Tehran would not make the situation “easier”, state news agency IRNA reported. Britain on Friday extended the status to Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe, who was arrested in Tehran in 2016. “What is certain is that the British government’s move lacks goodwill and is in no way constructive or positive,” said ministry spokesman Bahram Ghasemi on Tuesday. Also Read – Imran Khan arrives in China, to meet Prez Xi Jinping”If it does not make the situation more complicated, it will surely not make things easier.” Zaghari-Ratcliffe, who worked for the Thomson Reuters Foundation — the media organisation’s philanthropic arm — is serving a five-year jail sentence for sedition. She has denied all the charges against her. Diplomatic protection is a rarely-used mechanism allowing governments to seek protection for their citizens on the grounds that they have been wronged by another state. Also Read – US blacklists 28 Chinese entities over abuses in XinjiangBritain’s Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt said Friday that London would take the “extremely unusual” step of extending diplomatic protection to the jailed mother. This would signify the “formal recognition by the British government that her treatment fails to meet Iran’s obligations under international law”, he said. But Ghasemi denied this, saying Zaghari-Ratcliffe is “enjoying all legal and citizenship rights — both throughout her trial proceedings and during the conviction period”, including medical care. Tehran was informed of the UK’s decision via official channels, and is currently studying the legal and political implications, the spokesman said. Ghasemi dismissed the move as “merely reflecting a political decision by the UK” and said that it would not “in itself bring about a new legal status internally or internationally.” Iran’s envoy to London said last week that the UK’s decision “contravenes international law”, as governments can only exercise such protection for their own nationals. Writing on Twitter, Hamid Baeidinejad said Iran does not recognise dual nationality. “Irrespective of UK residency, MS Zaghari thus remains Iranian,” he wrote.last_img read more

No decision on death penalty

Sri Lanka had two weeks ago abstained from voting at the UN General Assembly in favour of abolishing the death penalty. The government has not decided on the implementation of the death penalty, External Affairs Ministry Secretary Karunatillaka Amunugama said.Amunugama told The Sunday Leader that the issue has become a debate in society with the rise in crime especially via the media. “However the government has not taken a policy decision on this,” he said. The draft resolution on a moratorium on the use of the death penalty was adopted by a recorded vote of 111 in favour to 41 against, with 34 abstentions.Amunugama said he had advised officials in New York to abstain from voting at the UN General Assembly as Sri Lanka had not taken a policy decision on the death penalty.

Mary Ann Edwards recognized as Distinguished Alumni Award winner

Alumni award winners included, from left: Sukhdeep Kaur Chohan (MEd ’06), Gary Schrobilgen (MSc ’71), Wendy Ingram (BA ’67), and Mary Ann Edwards (BPhEd ’76, BEd ’77).It started, like many good ideas, seemingly out of nowhere.Mary Ann Edwards had an “insane” idea to create an event. After six years as a volunteer run director for a national organization, the Brock University grad (BPhEd ’76, BEd ’77) wanted to do something on her own. She wanted to raise money for immediate cancer care and keep it in the region where she grew up, went to school and settled down.It was an idle idea, the kind that would have been easy to dismiss as too hard, too expensive, too consuming.“I had a group of friends who said, ‘if you’re going to do it, we’re going to stand beside you,’” Edwards said during an interview this summer.Nine years later, thousands have decided to stand – and run – with Edwards, whose Rankin Cancer Run has raised millions for Niagara hospitals.The Brock University Alumni Association recognized Edwards by making her its 2014 Distinguished Alumni Award winner. She was presented with the award Saturday, Sept. 20 along with other Faculty award winners during Homecoming festivities. More than 1,000 alumni and friends returned to help Brock celebrate its 50th anniversary.“There’s just millions and millions and millions of volunteers anywhere,” Edwards said. “That’s not an exaggeration. There are tons of unpaid people who are helping.“It’s a wonderful honour, but I’m embarrassed. Anybody but me is what I would prefer. I want to be one of the pack.”Edwards prefers to blend in with the crowd. The run wouldn’t be where it is without a small army of volunteers, a committee, and Tom Rankin, whose financial backing from the start allowed the idea to grow. Edwards believes no other business (Tom owns Rankin Construction) would have put its money into her idea.“Many times I was told this is a giant risk and there’s a really good chance you will fail, and we don’t want to be connected,” she said. “Tom took that risk and it was fantastic. He believed in something that wasn’t really there aside from spinning around in that gerbil wheel in my head.“He was willing to help big time, and he did.”For the first run in 2006, Edwards wanted to at least break even. The event might not have made money, but she was hoping it would catch on soon enough. Instead, 3,000 runners showed up.“I was hoping for 50,” she said. “It’s grassroots. The majority of people didn’t know we existed.”This year’s run raised an unprecedented $750,000 to support cancer initiatives in Niagara. Edwards, her 10-person committee and 150 volunteers helped make the event a financial and logistical success. Next year is the 10th anniversary, and the run will likely surpass $5 million in total money raised.“For people to find out about us, it’s been pretty awesome. We’re grateful.”Other award winners included:Sukhdeep Kaur Chohan (MEd ’06): 2014 Faculty of Education Distinguished Alumni AwardGary Schrobilgen (MSc ’71): 2014 Faculty of Mathematics & Science Distinguished Alumni AwardWendy Ingram (BA ’67): 2014 Faulty of Humanities Distinguished Alumni AwardMary Ann Edwards (BPhEd ’76, BEd ’77): Brock University Alumni Association 2014 Distinguished AlumnaAnne-Marie Robinson (BSc ’87, BBA ’90): 2013 Goodman School of Business Distinguished Alumni AwardMartine Foronoville (BEd ’04, MEd ’12): 2014 Faculty of Education Distinguished Alumni Award read more

TSA Makes Indian Diplomat Remove Turban

The whole process would have been embarrassing enough for the poor traveler, but Puri isn’t just anyone, he’s India’s ambassador to the United Nations.The incident follows a similar one on December 4th, which India’s external affairs minister Meera Shankar was subjected to a pat down at a Mississippi airport. AdChoices广告India’s external affairs minister S.M. Krishna told the press, “We have taken it up with the U.S. authorities and the matter is at that stage.” After the Shankar incident, Krishna said, “Let me be frank. This is unacceptable to India.

Solar flare blast may cause aurora borealis today

first_imgIf you’re in the high latitude regions of the Northern Hemisphere, you may be able to see some aurora borealis displays today thanks to a large solar flare that sent a cloud of plasma down to Earth earlier this week.The Sun hurled solar flares and coronal mass ejections towards Earth, and the most recent one currently en route is said to be both bigger and faster than the previous two. The third flare is expected to catch up with the other two and join forces to create a giant cloud that’s expected to hit Earth Today at 8:55 a.m. EDT plus or minus seven hours.NASA Spokesperson, Susan Hendrix of the Heliophysics Science Division said that Earth will only get a slight hit during the solar storm. If the flares were to hit straight on, the impact on Earth be more considerable but the solar flare is fairly weak and only registered as a middleclass M1 instance. The only thing we’ll most likely notice here on Earth is some visible auroras which may be visible as far south as the northern part of the U.S.The solar flares in question erupted when a powerful magnetic occurrence above sunspot 1261 shot out a flow of charged particles that were then hurled towards Earth. A solar flare is the result of a strong burst of radiation released from the magnetic energy of the sunspots.The last of the three flares occurred at 4:57 a.m. GMT on Thursday and is moving about 2,000 km per second to catch up with the first two. The solar flares were said to have caused some radio blackouts on Wednesday and Thursday, and caused some disturbance of high-frequency communications with planes traveling over the Pacific and Atlantic oceans.The National Weather Service thinks the flares will case moderate to strong Geomagnetic storms on Friday. If you’re in the higher latitude regions of the Northern Hemisphere–including Alaska, northern Scandinavia, parts of Canada, Russia, and the Arctic–keep a lookout for these Northern Lights today, and have your camera ready.via Space.comlast_img read more

How Lance Armstrong beat the drug tests

first_imgBy now just about everyone with even a passing interest in current events has heard that Lance Armstrong admitted in an interview with Oprah Winfrey that he took performance enhancing substances on the way to winning seven Tour de France titles. What you didn’t hear is how he did it.Cycling athletes are one of the most heavily tested groups in sports, so how could the most noted cyclists in the world get away with it for so long? With a combination of science and cleverness.Armstrong admitted to using several banned substances, but the one that may have made the biggest difference is EPO, or Erythropoietin. EPO is a glycoprotein that is produced naturally in the body and stimulates the production of red blood cells in bone marrow. If you’ll recall from biology class, red blood cells carry oxygen throughout the body. For an endurance athlete, this is the key to victory.Taking EPO basically increases the oxygen processing capacity of the circulatory system beyond what it would naturally be. There was no test for laboratory-created EPO until the early 2000s, but even then it was not terribly sensitive. An athlete as smart as Armstrong knew better than to take large quantities of synthetic EPO in recent years. Instead, he likely resorted to one of several drugs that boost natural EPO production. Although, high levels of natural EPO, while not conclusive, are treated with a lot of suspicion.The issue of blood doping goes hand-in-hand with EPO. Blood doping is all about timing and, again, being clever. The risk of detection is much lower when EPO is used long before a race, but you want those high levels of red blood cells. The solution? When the blood is chock full of red cells, some of it can be taken and stored until it’s time to race.Why go to all that trouble? EPO, like all proteins, breaks down naturally over time. Many serum proteins are short-lived, and in the case of EPO its half life is only 5 hours. That means that after a few hours a blood sample will have lower concentrations of detectable EPO. In a few days, EPO is completely undetectable. Put the blood back in, and you get the benefits of the additional red blood cells with lower levels of EPO.Blood doping is often used in conjunction with saline IVs, which Armstrong is alleged to have used as well. When Armstrong knew he was not going to be able to simply avoid the testers, and felt his blood levels might give him away, he would flush a liter of saline through his system. This has the advantage of diluting the banned substances to more normal levels. You have to remember almost all the substances Armstrong has admitted to using are naturally produced in the body. You don’t have to remove all traces, just make things look passable.Testosterone was apparently another big part of Armstrong’s training regiment. Testosterone is the male steroid hormone responsible for the development of male secondary sexual characteristics during puberty. This hormone is also essential in the building of muscles, so you can probably see why some athletes would abuse it. Lance Armstrong in particular would have benefited after his bout with testicular cancer, which left him with lowered levels of the compound.Evading tests for testosterone is actually easier than you’d think. The test is really just looking at the testosterone-epitestosterone ratio (T/E) to make sure it’s not seriously out of control (the allowable maximum is 4-to-1). A very high testosterone imbalance indicates a serious metabolic issue or, more likely, doping. By taking low doses of very pure human-derived testosterone over time, Armstrong was able to reap the benefits without much risk of being caught.I imagine he learned a serious lesson from the downfall of fellow cyclist Floyd Landis in 2006. Landis won the Tour de France, but his T/E ratio was found to be 12-to-1. He claimed this was a natural occurrence, but the high levels allowed the anti-doping agencies to isolate the testosterone in his blood. Mass spectrometry confirmed that the carbon isotopes making up some of that testosterone indicated a non-human laboratory source. This is the kind of advanced science Armstrong went up against for over a decade, and he was only recently backed into a corner.Lance Armstrong spent years avoiding anti-doping agency testers when he knew he would be caught. He learned from the mistakes of his colleagues, and counted on his celebrity to keep him above suspicion. In the end, it was his staggering accomplishments that convinced many people of his shady dealings. Armstrong was very clever to leverage biology and chemistry to win those seven Tours, but now he’s paying the price for what was — quite clearly — cheating.last_img read more

EU accused of divisive rhetoric after appointing Vice President for Protecting Our

first_img THE INCOMING EU Commission unveiled today has already caused some controversy, with the changed title of one of the portfolios described as ‘grotesque’ and ‘insulting’.European Commission president Ursula von der Leyen today presented the new structure of the next European Commission, including the appointment of eight vice presidents.One of those vice presidents, Margaritis Schinas, a Greek former MEP and long-serving commission official, has been appointed to oversee a portfolio called ‘Protecting our European Way of Life’.It was later clarified that this title is a rebranding of the Migration, Home Affairs and Citizenship portfolio.“From better protecting our citizens and borders and modernising our asylum system, to investing in Europeans’ skills and creating brighter futures for our youth, I am confident that we can take great strides over the next five years to both protect and empower Europeans,” Schina said after the announcement.The rebrand has been criticised with some commentators questioning whether the commission is suggesting that migrants do not fit in with the EU’s ‘way of life’. Molly Scott Cato, a British Green MEP told The Independent that the title “looks like the portfolio to fight back against the rise of the fascists, but only by adopting their divisive rhetoric around ‘strong borders’”.Dutch liberal MEP Sophie in ‘t Veld said the “implication that Europeans need to be protected from external cultures is grotesque and this narrative should be rejected”.Labour MEP Claude Moraes also described the new title of the migration portfolio as “deeply insulting”. “A portfolio with a title like this just cannot stand in my view,” he said on Twitter. Combining security with migration. Throwing in employment and education. Calling the Portfolio “Protecting our Way of Life”. Seriously.

It was almost like a cup final for them and they grew into the game.“We should still have had more composure and quality to see that through and get more goals.

First Chrome browser with Manifest V3 for extensions expected in late July

first_imgFirst Chrome browser with Manifest V3 for extensions expected in late July by Martin Brinkmann on June 24, 2019 in Google Chrome – Last Update: June 24, 2019 – 44 commentsThe first public version of the upcoming Manifest V3 for Chrome extensions is expected to be released in late July or beginning of August.Google published an early draft of the new manifest for extensions in early 2019. The manifest defines what Chrome extensions can do and some of the changes in the draft caught the attention of extension developers.Developers like Raymond Hill, best known for the Chrome content blocker uBlock Origin, noted that the initial draft could very well end ad-blocking extensions for the web browser. Other extensions, e.g. Tampermonkey, will also be affected by the changes.One of Google’s arguments for a particular API change was that content blockers could slow down the Chrome browser but a benchmark refuted the claim for the most part. Google has not published any benchmarks or data that confirmed the company’s claim in this regard.The company stated as well that the new API would improve privacy and security of Chrome users.Google made some concessions, e.g. by raising the artificial limit of the controversial API to better accommodate ad-blocking extensions but remained on course.Chromium Developer advocate Simeon Vincent confirmed on the Chromium Extensions forum that Google would launch the first preview of the new Manifest to the Canary channel in late July or beginning of August.Manifest V3 is not yet ready for experimentation and feedback. The extensions team is currently working towards releasing a Developer Preview in the Canary channel at the end of July or beginning of August. We’ll be sharing additional details when that lands.Chrome Canary is the cutting edge development version of Google Chrome. While not mentioned in the post, it is likely that the new Manifest will be turned off by default and needs to be enabled using an experimental flag before it becomes available.Most content blockers won’t work properly when the change lands in Chrome Canary. The draft and some of its limits are not final, and developers are still trying to figure out if it is even possible to publish updates that use the new API without sacrificing functionality.It will take at least six months before the change lands in Chrome Stable at the earliest; this would mean that Manifest V3 could launch as early as the beginning of 2020.Most companies that produce Chromium-based web browsers have stated that they would not implement the API in this form or that their built-in content blocking capabilities would not be affected by the change.Google made some adjustments to some of the parameters of the new API that is part of Manifest V3 but the overall change seems to be set in stone.Closing WordsIt seems unlikely that Google will modify Manifest V3  for Chrome extensions significantly at this point. The company may make changes here and there but seems hellbent on releasing the Manifest with the new API.Now You: What is your take on the whole situation?

India is a high potential source market says Taiwan Tourism

first_imgIndia is considered to be a high potential source market for Taiwan Tourism (TT).“Though the tourist numbers are not very high, there has been a substantial increase from this market – a consistent 20% growth every year,” said Arthur Hsieh, Director, Taiwan Tourism, Singapore.Taiwan Tourism held educational multi-city workshops for the travel fraternity and the media in Kolkata, Bangalore and Mumbai recently. The aim of the workshop was to educate the travel agents and update their knowledge about Taiwan, the products it has to offer, USP’s of the destination and the how it caters to different segments of the Indian travellers.“We receive a large number of Indian tourists from Mumbai. We want to educate the travel trade to know more about Taiwan and TT partners,” Hsieh added. Currently, the capital city of Taipei welcomes the largest number of Indian tourists.Taiwan has also waived off visa fees on group travel fostering an increase in MICE movement from India. The average stay of Indian travellers ranges between five to six days.Noel Saxena, Country Head, Taiwan Tourism, India, shared that Indians spend $3000-4000 on an average in Taiwan. “Indians opt for various activities like ocean drives, water sports, adventure sports, and also visit Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall and National Palace Museum. The most recent addition to this list is night market shopping,” he said.Taiwan also hosts a series of festivals. According to Saxena, Sky Lantern Festival, Fulong Beach Festival, Dragon Boat Festival and Hot Air Ballon are some of the must-experience festivals for visitors to this island nation.last_img read more
