"Overlapped" plans to harness the creativity of young Taiwanese American influencers to create short videos that introduce unique elements of Taiwan’s culture.

TaiwanPlus CEO Joanne Tsai elaborates, "TaiwanPlus was created to let the world hear Taiwan’s voice. We know this mission is not an easy one, but it is an extremely important and meaningful challenge. I am happy to have an opportunity to connect with American audiences through the 'Overlapped' project and ultimately allow more people to hear Taiwan’s voice."
Minister Chen-yuan Tung of the Overseas Community Affairs Council (OCAC) witnessed the virtual signing of the MOU and delivered a speech in Houston. According to the minister, "The collaboration between TOCF and TaiwanPlus not only links the friendship between Taiwan and the US through audio and video, but also furthers the development of innovative content from the overseas community, enhances social connection between the two nations, and carries out diplomacy abroad."
TOCF Chairman Ming-Ying Wu added, "All Taiwanese American youth are goodwill ambassadors, bringing Taiwan’s spirit of friendship to the world."
TOCF’s International Youth Leader Working Group hosted the online event. The event was convened by Shu-Ying Li, the Honorary Chairwoman of the Global Federation of Chinese Business Women. The International Leadership Foundation (ILF) and National Asian/Pacific Islander American Chamber of Commerce and Entrepreneurship CEO Chiling Tong, OCAC member and recipient of the 2022 White House Lifetime Achievement Award Yueh-Chu Pai, Greater Houston Convention and Visitors Bureau Asia-Pacific Office President Yi Yao and Houston Taiwanese Association President Chen Yi-ling were also in attendance.

Today, it looks like interest in the stock on social media is building, as short interest has risen to the highest it's been in more than a year, according to analytics company Ortex.

Longtime homeowners and those whose property value has skyrocketed could be in for a particularly nasty surprise. Here are some ways to reduce the tax bill.
DEEP DIVE The stock market, shocked by the Federal Reserve’s policy changes to fight inflation, has been gored this year, with growth and technology companies bearing the brunt of the biggest declines.
The semiconductor titan is dealing with some near-term macroeconomic challenges, but its long-term future remains bright.
Twitter did not provide any details about the proposed takeover offer from billionaire Elon Musk at its annual shareholder meeting.
One of the troubling things about this market downturn is that as brutal as it got, corporate insiders never showed much interest in their discounted stocks. Using history as a guide, the S&P 500 (SPX) the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) and the Nasdaq Composite (COMP) stand to advance 15%-20% over the next three months. “Quality” means buying by insiders with strong records, buying by executives over directors who are further from the business, and bullish formations like cluster buys.
Wednesday was yet another strong day for oil and gas stocks, but shares of natural gas companies stood out, with many soaring by double-digit percentages. Range Resources is a Texas-based natural gas exploration and production company with major operations in the Marcellus shale in Pennsylvania. The company also produces natural gas liquids and crude oil, but almost 70% of its production is natural gas.

The markets these days are flashing warning signs for investors. High inflation and slowing GDP growth threaten a return to the stagflation of the late 70s, while China’s strict anti-COVID lockdowns and the Russia-Ukraine war are working together to keep supplies of oil, food, and manufactured goods short, supply chains tangled – and prices high. In short, it’s an investment environment that cries out for defensive plays. Dividend stocks are clear choice for investors looking to buy in. Their ap

The current market conditions – the NASDAQ is down 28% year-to-date, and the S&P 500 is down 17% – offer bargain hunters a target-rich environment. Plenty of sound stocks have seen their prices decline, pulled down by the general market headwinds and the overall stock trend, to levels that have left them too cheap to ignore. At this level, investors can find the benefits of cheap stocks, like those under $10, which offer both learning opportunities and huge upside potential. However, in evaluati
Jim Kelleher, director of research at Argus Research, joins Yahoo Finance Live to discuss Nvidia's latest quarterly results. 
Stock markets have been bearing the brunt of multiple headwinds in recent months. Persistently high inflation, slowing GDP growth, and a jobs market that, while expanding in absolute terms, is still down from pre-pandemic levels are feeding fears that we’re facing a round of ‘70’s-style stagflation. And these have combined with geopolitical factors – the Russia-Ukraine war, the resumption of severe lockdown policies in China – to ratchet up worries about recession in the near term. It’s a tradin

Costco Wholesale (NASDAQ: COST) might fall into that category. Its stock price has fallen along with the market this year, and last week it plunged after other retailers posted disappointing first-quarter results.

Former Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey's time at the company has come to an end. Dorsey stepped down from Twitter's board of directors Wednesday, a change that's effective as of the company's shareholders meeting. Dorsey had already begun to distance himself from the social media platform he co-founded, leaving Twitter's chief executive role late last year to focus on Block, formerly known as Square.
