焦點話題

Climate Change: Mighty Thwaites Glacier Threatens to Melt

南極發燒 「末日冰川」坍塌在即

 

   The Thwaites Glacier in Antarctica is regarded as the “Doomsday Glacier” since it is extremely unstable. Each year, it loses over 50 billion tons of ice due to increasing global temperatures. The melting ice causes the sea level to rise. Increasingly warm ocean currents also continue to chip away at the glacier itself. Year by year, the Thwaites Glacier gets closer to collapsing into the ocean. Should this happen, the consequences would be catastrophic.

   We know all of this thanks to researchers who study Antarctic ice formations. One of their research tools is a little, yellow submarine named Boaty McBoatface . Boaty is an unmanned submarine that explores the area around the glacier and records water temperature. With the aid of Boaty , we will hopefully find a way to prevent this disaster.

 

Ministry to Relax School Rules

高中作息大修 教育部宣布於八月上路

 

   The Ministry of Education has announced that it will relax activities centered around morning school routines. Requirements that students must be on school grounds by 7:30 a.m. for flag-raising ceremonies and self-study sessions have long received public criticism. In 2020, voters expressed their displeasure in a public policy referendum by voting against the school regulations.

   Considering the referendum’s results, the Ministry will make the following changes: School start times will no longer be at 7:30 a.m., the number of morning flag-raising ceremonies will be reduced, mandatory attendance for self-study sessions will be abolished, and tests during the eighth period will be banned. These changes would take effect in August 2022, giving schools time to make necessary adjustments. These changes only apply to senior high schools; junior high schools will have less far-reaching changes to their schedules.
