Insurance firms offer toll-free phone service
The insurance companies must provide toll-free phone service for the insurers during the Mid-autumn Festival holiday in case of emergencies, the Financial Supervisory Commission said yesterday.
Due to the fact that many people take extended trips during the five-day holiday, more accidents may occur, so the FSC required every insurance company provide Toll Free Services including Toll Free Phone Numbers to help insurers who get into accidents.
For further information, the customers can check the below websites: FSC website: http://www.fscey.gov.tw, The Life Insurance Association of the Republic of China: http://www.lia-roc.org.tw, The Non-life Insurance Association of the Republic of China: http://www.nlia.org.tw.
Record-breaking radio
"Morning Prelude, " aired six days a week by Taiwan's Broadcasting Corporation of China since 1975, claimed yesterday to have broken the world record for the longest-running radio show and hopes to be included in the Guinness Book of World Records, according to a host of the show.
The show, broadcast from 6 a.m. to 7 a.m. Monday to Saturday, has been sponsored solely by Uni-President Enterprise Corp. for the last 31 years, for which the show claims to have broken the world record for the longest-running corporate sponsorship for a radio program, according to Lai Hsiang-wei.
Hot new lighting
Taiwan's light-emitting diode industry has become one of the nation's hottest new sectors and the world's greatest producer of this new technology, which will be featured in a TV program on Formosa TV at 10:30 p.m. tomorrow, a spokesman for the National Applied Research Laboratories said.
The TV program "Lightening the Future - Lighting and Electricity" was produced under NARL's supervision and is one episode of a distinguished program series called "Technology as Taiwan's Driving Force." It is also highly recommended by the Broadcasting Development Fund, the spokesman added.
Hairy crabs allowed
Taiwan has allowed tourists to bring in eriocheir sinensis, also known as Shanghai hairy crabs, for the last two years, although most people are unaware that the previous ban is no longer in place, the Bureau of Standards, Petrology and Inspection under the Ministry of Economic Affairs pointed out yesterday.
The officials noted that each tourist can bring up to 10 kg of the crabs into Taiwan.
