"A local biotechnology company in Greater Taichung on Monday said it has developed paper cups that are resistant to high temperatures, acid and alkaline solutions...
...Chang Ching-wen (張靜文), the owner of a paper cup manufacturing company, has conducted research and development on high temperature, acid and alkaline-resistant paper cups.
Since traditional paper cups provide no resistance to high temperatures, acid or alkaline, many people inadvertently consume plasticizer released from the cups when the liquid they contain is too hot, Chang said...
...The cups can be placed in a microwave and are also acid and alkaline-resistant. They are 40 percent lighter than ordinary paper cups and their decomposition rate can exceed 97 percent. Chang said the cup has obtained patents from up to 100 countries and received SGS and US Food and Drug Administration certifications."
Looks like a good healthy environmentally responsible product. (So different from what you get across the strait.)

Calling for Flash Mobs in Taiwan: Students in Taiwan could learn something from the young generation in Korea
Hope folks in Taiwan will organize similar events. But don't use R.O.C. songs and anthems. Use Taiwanese folk songs and for a national anthem, how about, "Verdant Taiwan"? We'll also need a Taiwan focused flag.
雨夜花 (though a different arrangement than the video below might be better....)
《台灣翠青》 詞：鄭兒玉 / 曲：蕭泰然 * Tâi-ôan Chhùi-chhiⁿ - words: Tīⁿ Jyi-giokk; music: Siau Thài-jiân
You could use the Republic of Taiwan flag from 1895, only modify it to make it into a Taiwan Clouded Leopard instead of a tiger:
There are lots of other possibilities. Perhaps we should have a mix?
