... is a fatty acid emulsion produced by Fresenius Kabi. It is used for total parenteral nutrition (feeding directly into a venous catheter), e.g. in short bowel syndrome. It is rich in omega-3 fatty acids. It has gained popularity in children in preference to the more commonly used Intralipid after case reports that it reduced the risk of liver damage. A recent study indicated that the use of Omegaven may be an appropriate intervention strategy for newborns with a very low birth weight, gastrochisis, and jejunal atresia. It is currently undergoing a clinical trial at National Taiwan University Hospital. Although the use of Omegaven in children in the United States is experimental, the use of it in adults in Europe is less controversial. In European studies, Omegaven has been associated with a reduction in psoriasis, when contrasted to administration of omega-6 fatty acid Lipoven. Omegaven has also been associated with reduced mortality and antibiotic use during hospital ...
Intensive settlement began in earnest in the late 17th century, when the place was known as Ki-au (Chinese: 旗後). Opened in 1863 as a treaty port, subsidiary to the port of Anping farther north on the coast, Kaohsiung became a customs station in 1864 and then gradually became an important port for the southern Taiwan coastal plain. Kaohsiung's real economic and strategic importance began under Japanese rule (1895-1945). The Japanese needed a good port in southern Taiwan to serve those designated areas that were to become a major source of raw materials and food for Japan, and Kaohsiung was chosen. It became the southern terminus of the main north-south railway line, and from 1904 to 1907 extensive harbor works were undertaken. In 1920 the port was given the name Takao and the area became a municipality in 1920. Before and during World War II it handled a growing share of Taiwan's agricultural exports to Japan, and was also a major base for Japan's campaigns in Southeast Asia and the Pacific, ...

The National Taiwan Normal University opened its doors in the early 20th century during Japanese rule in Taiwan. Taiwan's Japanese governors established the school as Taiwan Provincial College. Soon after they gave it the name Taihoku College (Taihoku is "Taipei" in Japanese). The school's purpose was to nurture a native educated class qualified to assist the government in matters of administration. Many buildings on the university's main campus date from the Japanese colonial period, including the Administration Building, the Lecture Hall, Wenhui Hall and Puzi Hall. Japanese civil engineers incorporated features of the Neo-Classical, Gothic and Gothic Revival styles often encountered on European university campuses. A room in the Lecture Hall housed the traditional Japanese document that authorizes and formalizes campus construction.[13] In 1946 China's Kuomintang government assumed control of Taiwan and redefined the school as Taiwan Provincial Teachers' College. Some school publications still ...
Shoushan (Chinese: 壽山, also commonly known in English as Monkey Mountain) is a mountain in Gushan District, Kaohsiung, Taiwan, north of the main entrance to Kaohsiung Harbor. It was named Ape Hill by the Dutch in the 17th century to describe many monkeys on this mountain. It is also called Chaishan (柴山) and includes the Snake Hill (蛇山 - a 17th-century term) in its northern part, and Long Life Hill (壽山) - named by Japanese in 1911-1915 for the crown-prince Hirohito - in the southern part. In some old maps, the peak of the hill is called Saracen's Head. Now it is a nature park where biological diversity can be seen. ...

The Flora of Taiwan (Chinese: 臺灣植物誌; pinyin: Táiwān Zhíwù Zhì) is the flora of the country also known as the Republic of China. Flora of Taiwan is also a set of books recording the vascular plants of Taiwan (territories). The second edition consists of six volumes published in 1993-2003 and is available on-line. Taiwan is an island of diverse geography and varied climates, allowing for a vast array of flora to be present. Situated between China and the Philippine sea basin, it is said to be the home of approximately 4000 species of vascular plants. Of these plants, it is estimated that 600 are ferns, 28 are gymnosperms, 2400 are dicots, and 1000 are monocots. The island can also be divided up into seven different floristic regions; Northeastern, Central, Hengchun, Lanyu (Orchid Island) and Lutao (Green Island), Alpine, Upper montaine and supalpine, and Lower montane and lowland. The Northeastern region of Taiwan receives much more rainfall and cloud coverage than other regions, ...
In 1983, the Industrial Development Bureau (IDB) under the Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA) of the Republic of China, Taiwan, introduced for the first time the US Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) system into Taiwan, actively promoting the Taiwan Food GMP Certification System, and encouraging food enterprises to voluntarily certify for the food GMP standard. In 1994, GMP certified food enterprises established the "Taiwan Food GMP Association" in order to promote the food GMP Certification System. In 2000, the food GMP officially entered the period of "Joint Promotion of Government and Private Sector", in which the government and the food industry private sector cooperate with each other to actively promote food GMP and enhance acceptance and public trust in food manufacturing. Taiwan Food GMP Association functioned as a bridge between the government, industry and consumers, promoting the voluntary implementation of food safety management system by the food industry.

Taylor Gun-Jin Wang (simplified Chinese: 王赣骏; traditional Chinese: 王贛駿; pinyin: Wáng Gànjùn; born June 16, 1940) is a Chinese-born American scientist and in 1985, became the first ethnic Chinese person to go into space. While an employee of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Wang was a payload specialist on the Space Shuttle Challenger mission STS-51-B. With ancestry in Yancheng, Jiangxi, China, Wang was born in Jiangxi to Wáng Zhāng (王章) and Yú Jiéhóng (俞洁虹/俞潔虹). He moved to Taiwan in 1952 with his family. He studied his later part of elementary school in Kaohsiung, and graduated from The Affiliated Senior High School of National Taiwan Normal University in Taipei. He later moved to Hong Kong.

After completing his doctorate, Wang joined the California ...
Railway services between Keelung and Hsinchu began in 1891 under China's Qing Dynasty.[4] Completely rebuilt and substantially expanded under the Taiwan Governor-General Railways (zh) operated by Formosa's Japanese colonial government (1895-1945), the network's Japanese influence and heritage persists.[5] Similarities between the TRA and the Japan Railways (JR) companies can be noted in signal aspects, signage, track layout, fare controls, station architecture, and operating procedures. As Japan's southern base during WWII, Taiwan's railways suffered significant damage by Allied air raids. The Taiwan Railways Administration was established on 5 March 1948 to reconstruct and operate railway infrastructure, with Lang Chung-hsiung (zh) as its first Director-General.[6] With around 13,500 employees (4,700 in transportation and 7,700 in maintenance titles), TRA is a government organisation under Taiwan's Ministry of Transportation and Communication (MOTC) that directly operates 682 route miles of ...
Because of the Taiwan's extensive rail network (including many now defunct industrial narrow gauge lines which provided passenger service to rural areas), railways in Taiwan often have a romantic connotation, especially amongst the older generation who remember growing up when rail travel was the primary means of transportation between cities in simpler (and less prosperous) times. Many remember leaving their hometowns to attend school in far away cities by train or leaving via train to perform their compulsory military service. This nostalgia has been capitalized upon in recent years through the introduction of various items such as "nostalgia railroad ekiben" (懷舊鐵路便當), claimed to be authentic copies of the box lunches that were once served aboard trains. There is also a sizable network of railway fans in Taiwan which has increased with the recent trend of Taiwanization; the culture of the railway fans in Taiwan is also strongly associated with that in Japan owing to strong Japanese ...
Source:[1] The emergency numbers in Taiwan are 110 (police) and 119 (fire and ambulance services). When making an inter-area long-distance call from within Taiwan, a long-distance prefix "0" is required. If calls are made from within the same area code, then the area code does not need to be included. Inter-area calls are defined as long-distance phone calls even when the two numbers have the same prefix. If calls are made from outside Taiwan, the "0" of the area code prefix is omitted. The following table of area codes includes this "0" prefix. The government reserves code 1 for Nanjing, the capital of the Republic of China according to the constitution, which it does not actually control. ...
The Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA; Chinese: 中華民國對外貿易發展協會; pinyin: Zhōnghuá Mínguó Duìwài Màoyì Fāzhǎn Xiéhuì) is a non-profit government co-sponsored[1] trade promotion organization in Taiwan. It was founded in 1970 as China External Trade Development Council (CETRA).[2] However, it changed its English name in January 2004.[3] This was in order to avoid confusion with bodies representing the People's Republic of China.[4] TAITRA assists Taiwan businesses and manufacturers to reinforce their international competitiveness and to cope with the challenges they face in foreign markets. Cooperating with Far East Trade Services, Inc. (FETS) and the Taipei World Trade Center (TWTC), its sister organizations, TAITRA has striven to adapt its trade promotion strategies to the changing international conditions. Its major functions include: Market Research & Information Service, Market Development, Exhibition & Convention Service, Trade Education and ...
