08/04/2015 GERMANY BREAKS OWN RENEWABLE ENERGY RECORD

Germany has just broken its own record for the amount of energy generated by renewable sources in a day. On July 25th, the country generated 78 percent of its total energy through wind, solar and other non-coal energy sources, topping its previous record of 74 percent. Unusually high winds at most of the country's wind turbines' location contributed to the record-breaking day. As the gushing wind accelerated the turbines, the country's utilities slowed down the coal- and gas-fired power plants. Freakish winds aside, Germany is still leading the way in renewable energy production. A few days earlier, on a gloomy day when zero percent of the country's power was generated through solar panels, and barely any wind motivated the turbines to turn, Germany had 25 percent of its electricity generated through renewables.

08/03/2015 ZOO TO CLOSE AMID ANIMAL RIGHTS AWARENESS

A private zoo in Tainan's Madou District in southern Taiwan is set to be closed for good in January next year, with the owner complaining that the newly revised Animal Protection Act will make his business too challenging to run. "Making the decision is painful," said Chiu Hsi-ho, owner of the Madou King of Crocodile Zoo. Once the revisions to the Animal Protection Act take effect on Jan 23, 2016, it will be more and more difficult for small-scale private zoos to survive, Chiu said, admitting that he will be unable to run a zoo when the relevant laws become stricter than when he started his business nearly 40 years ago.
