Description:

Klopf Architecture, Outer Space Landscape Architects, and Flegels Construction updated a classical 1950s original mid-century modern house designed by the late Frank Lloyd Wright apprentice Ellis Jacobs. Klopf Architecture pushed the original design intent to make the house more open and uniform from space to space, while improving energy efficiency, capitalizing more on the already incredible views, improving the flow of spaces, providing an outdoor living area, and ratcheting up the quality level of the home in general.

Mid-Century-Modern-View-House-Remodel-01

In 1960s the original owners built this home themselves using exposed concrete block and exposed framing everywhere, giving it a rough industrial feel. Sentimental to that family, hidden discoveries were found in the home’s walls including historical newspapers and a young girl’s letter describing the process and calling the house “self-built” by her and her family. A master suite, also designed by Jacobs, was added on decades ago, but it is not known whether the original owners built that addition themselves.

Mid-Century-Modern-View-House-Remodel-02

The new owners loved the house in general, but wanted a more finished feeling on the interior and some improvements to the flow (notably kitchen and bathrooms). Klopf Architecture renovated most surfaces, oftentimes covering up the exposed concrete block walls, and re-designed the kitchen and bathroom layouts. The post and beam construction and ceiling were all kept in tact, as was the monolithic concrete block fireplace. The walls and roof were insulated, a new heating system was put in (the old radiant system wasn’t working, and anyway the master suite addition hadn’t ever been provided with heat!), and the exterior of the house was kept in the same style, only repaired and spruced up. There were no additions to the house.

Mid-Century-Modern-View-House-Remodel-03

One major change on the exterior, on the view side at the rear, is that the project team continued the glass wall pattern from the master suite and living room to the kitchen by removing solid portions of the kitchen wall and put in a landscaped rear living area. The kitchen was also opened up to the living room much more than in the original condition.

Mid-Century-Modern-View-House-Remodel-04

The goal of these improvements was to transform the living room / kitchen into a more open living area with better connection to the outdoor living room / bbq area and better access to the incredible views of the Peninsula and San Francisco Bay. The updated custom Mid-Century Modern home is a remodeled single-family house in Redwood City. This 2,000 square foot (plus garage), 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom home is located in the heart of the Silicon Valley.

Description:

This 6,800 sq/ft home was designed for entertaining and displaying the clients extensive northwest art collection.

Lake-Washington-Shores-Residence-01

The home merges the exterior & interior spaces to provide a seamless environment with the northwest landscape. A dramatic center pavilion is the focus of the architecture by Jim Olson that displays a grand thirty-five foot long dining table by Garret Werner that floats on two pedestals. The table was engineered & constructed out of mahogany wood and nickel plated steel sections. The table may be disassembled to provide a flexible party space. All cabinets were designed by Garret Werner.

Lake-Washington-Shores-Residence-02

Working in collaboration with Jim Olson the master bathroom floor plan was redesigned from initial floor plans and was transformed into an inside-out experience. A custom designed sunken bath is the focus of the room and this one of Garret Cord Werner’s signature bathroom features that you will see on other projects such as the “City Home Remodel”. Blurring the lines of the interior to the exterior we believe is an important element for all architectural projects. The nickel & fused glass powder rooms in the project are also by Garret Werner.

Travertine Dream House by Wallflower Architecture + Design

Travertine Dream House by Wallflower Architecture + Design

Description:

The customer’s brief for this house was basic. Practically, to amplify usable region and to consolidate greenery. Tastefully, to utilize travertine plentifully as a design wrap up. Enlivened by the Italian urban-scape amid his voyages, so too would travertine express this house.

Travertine-Dream-House-01-1

The house is composed as two parallel squares joined by a glass encased scaffold. The partition between the two pieces permits sunlight to gush down to cellar spaces. Thick travertine dividers and expansive shades are put on the western side to utmost warmth pick up from the cruel evening sun. The passage, living spaces and rooms are orchestrated longitudinally to exploit characteristic cross ventilation and sunlight. Keeping in mind the end goal to strengthen area use without winding up with a forcing structure, the four storied house has one level sunk into the ground and the other three set far from the frontage road.

Travertine-Dream-House-01

To suit however much green and “blue” space as could be expected, the greenery enclosures and water bodies are spread all through the house. The living and feasting regions on the ground floor confront a swimming pool and a fish lake. The storm cellar’s amusement and visitor rooms are interested in the sky, with regular light and ventilation getting through an indented greenery garden patio. The third story level rooftop is both a recreational deck and a rooftop garden.

Travertine-Dream-House-02

The landing knowledge is organized by a few layers of travertine divider that propose a dubious limit between the outside and within. The itemizing is intentionally insignificant and exact to improve the effortlessness of the massing and the juxtaposition of strength and straightforwardness. The limited hinders that house the living range, the thick stone cladding, numerous levels of greenery enclosures and water bodies guarantee that the house stays cool in the tropical environment, all around ventilated and washed in delicate sunlight.

Travertine-Dream-House-03

The three dimensional sythesis of voids, layers and solids makes spaces for both calm reflection and family communication, something for every state of mind and minute.

The Crow’s Nest: holiday home on a cliff top designed by AR Design Studio

The Crow’s Nest: holiday home on a cliff top designed by AR Design Studio

Architects: AR Design Studio
Location: South Coast, England
Year: 2016
Area: 1.938 ft²/ 180 m²
Photo courtesy: Martin Gardner
Description:

“AR Design Studio was approached by the clients who were looking to extend their holiday home on a cliff top on the South Coast. Half way through the planning process, the existing house catastrophically broke in half one night during a landslip.

AR Design Studio was then tasked with designing a completely new home; the idea of movement and fracturing formed the backbone of the concept. Working closely with engineers Eckersley O’Callaghan, an imaginative structural solution was proposed to prevent future failure. A concrete slab was built into the ground, a series of strategically placed dwarf walls were then built on top of it.  A floating structural frame was then laid on top of the walls to act as an adjustable raft in case of future movement. Beneath the frame, there are specific places for mechanical jacks to be positioned so that the house can be securely releveled.

The design concept starts as a traditional cabin-like-form that then splits, twists and rotates, resulting in four pods. The outcome is a beautifully haphazard rough-sawn larch clad house that silhouettes against the wooded backdrop. The clearly defined entrance pod, the smallest of the four, guides you through the hallway into the central pod; the main living space comprising of kitchen, dining and living room.

The extensive sliding glass draws one into the stunning coastline setting, with uninterrupted views of the English Channel beyond a floating timber deck. The tower pod houses the large open plan master suite, situated on the first floor above a children’s bedroom, utility room and shower room on the ground floor. The right-hand pod, at the opposite end of the house, consists of the guest quarters; a bedroom, two bunk rooms, and a bathroom. This entire section of the house can be closed off when not required.

The result is a playful and calm space for the owners to enjoy weekends with family and friends whilst taking in the spectacular and isolated location in which it sits.”

“Great Expectations

What would you expect, when entering a 250 m2 (2690 sq ft) loft at De Rotterdam, the biggest building of The Netherlands, (designed by OMA/Rem Koolhaas), at the height of 143 meters (469 foot), on the 43rd floor? Rotterdam seen from the air shows the omnipresence of water flowing through the city centre.

panoramic-view-rotterdam-cityscape-43rd-floor-huge-modern-apartment-01

The 25 meter (82 foot) total glass façade stretching from floor to ceiling, offers you a view of the Maas river, flowing through the city towards the Rotterdam harbour. You will look down upon the Erasmus Bridge (designed by UN Studio), the Markthal (designed by MVRDV), the city centre, Delft and on a clear day even The Hague is part of the view.

panoramic-view-rotterdam-cityscape-43rd-floor-huge-modern-apartment-02

Flow like the river
Suppose you go up 143 meters (469 feet) high and enter a living room with a 35 meter (114 foot) wide panoramic view on the Rotterdam cityscape. Which interior could match this overwhelming view? From above you will discover that the city is a flow: the water is an important part of the city.

panoramic-view-rotterdam-cityscape-43rd-floor-huge-modern-apartment-03

We took ‘flow’ as a design language for the interior. We used it for wavy floor and ceiling patterns and a 20 meter (66 foot) long curvy walnut wooden wall. With these gestures we were able to create a big open 150 m2 (1614 sq ft) living area with grandeur and create places within this open space that feel intimate as well. The curvy walnut wall hides all the living necessities such as the television and storage room, as well as hidden entrances to bedrooms.

panoramic-view-rotterdam-cityscape-43rd-floor-huge-modern-apartment-04

To avoid that the huge glass walls will evoke an ‘unprotected’ experience of the open space, the long wavy screen of wood is used as a background. It covers the cupboards of the living room and kitchen. It guides you to the bedroom area, as the wall and doors are part of the bedroom. An 8 meter (26 foot) long ‘flowing’ cooking island transforms from a cooking area into a bar area and will give you one of the best panoramic views. This furniture is designed for small family rituals as well as big party events.

panoramic-view-rotterdam-cityscape-43rd-floor-huge-modern-apartment-05

Two apartments, one luxury penthouse
In order to create a spacious home, 2 properties are combined into this one luxury penthouse. One apartment is designed as one big living area including kitchen. The second apartment includes 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a jacuzzi and a sauna – 6 meter long (20 foot) bathroom for the master bedroom with a view towards the Rotterdam harbour – a jacuzzi besides the bed in the master bedroom – a glass sliding door behind for semi outside experience. Even from the 2 person shower you can enjoy the view because you can look all the way through the 13 m (43 foot) long bathroom and bedroom.”

【縮影人間】台灣「正義魔人」的異想世界


台灣正義魔人的爭議無所不在,孕婦、視障生、燒燙傷友、生理期女生乘坐博愛座遭正義魔人辱罵事件層出不窮。自以為是的正義魔人與捷運文化更是獨樹一格,北捷早在2005年就取消站立右側規定,但北捷鄉愿也讓正義魔人一直存在。近來,網路流傳著一張香港地鐵乘客未讓座的照片,竟然有超過1萬名台灣臉書使用者轉載這張照片開罵台灣年輕人。顯然,自以為是的正義魔人往往在搞不清楚狀況下就伸張自以為是的「正義」,這種莫名其妙的「正義」可說是台灣的奇觀。

【縮影人間】台灣「正義魔人」的異想世界

人氣指數: 533
友善列印版本

台灣最美的風景是不是人,一直很有爭議,但最近正義魔人惹出的爭議,社會共識倒是沒有異議。日前一位懷孕3個多月的年輕孕婦在火車上坐博愛座,卻遭到高中生情侶辱罵,孕婦出示了孕婦手冊和胎兒超音波照,還被譏諷造假。之後因為被迫久站乘車,導致出血狀況,需要到醫療院所安胎。孕婦感嘆,人不是看起來正常就真的是正常。

懷孕初期肚子不夠大,孕婦在博愛座上常被白眼。(圖:公共電視)

不明究理的正義魔人無所不在

台灣的博愛座文化讓許多國家感到非常有禮貌,但這一年多以來,博愛座的正義魔人爭議事件卻層出不窮,讓不少人檢討博愛座文化。2007年起,台北捷運就開始發行「博愛識別貼紙」,給有需要的人取用。2012年起,台北市政府也提供「你讓座我好孕」的「好孕胸章」,給予懷孕前期(約16-20週以前)的孕婦,避免因為懷孕外觀不明顯,無法找到座位乘坐休息。不過,由於玩手機的低頭族太多,配戴胸章的孕婦時常遇到無人讓座的狀況。

2016年,新北市一名糕餅店李姓老闆娘在搭乘捷運途中,看到兩位北一女學生沒有讓座,於是拍下照片發表在臉書上痛斥:「這是誰家女兒該作(做)雞吧」,引起網友的廣大迴響。後來才了解女學生因為身體不舒服,所以只好坐著。

就在北一女事件發生不久後,台灣師範大學的視障生呂冠霖在臉書上敘述在博愛座被逼讓座的過程,他因為視神經病變,視力從1.2變成0.02,幾近全盲,當時被捷運保全安頓在博愛坐上,但因為呂同學的外觀狀況「正常」,視力狀況也能夠勉強使用手機,因此卻被一名中年婦女指責不能坐在博愛座上,聞聲者也辱罵他能使用手機,是個沒教養的小孩。

無獨有偶,2016年底也有一名燒燙傷友穿著長褲搭乘捷運準備去陽光基金會復健,坐在博愛座時,遭到一名阿伯指責「好手好腳竟不讓座」,此舉讓她當場落淚;隨後在旁陪同的母親解釋後,阿伯才向傷友道歉。對這個爭議,陽光基金會看法與年輕孕婦事件、視障生事件一樣,都因為一般人總是會依外表判定他人是否需要幫助或乘坐博愛座,只是「表面看不到的辛苦」,無法讓人了解。

台灣的博愛座文化的確是台灣人有禮貌的表現,不過,博愛座議題很簡單,就是有需要者就坐。至於需要座位者,通常會張望哪裡有座位,當乘客觀察到類似狀況,再主動協助即可。至於正義魔人,看來並不是台灣交通乘坐文化所需要的。

台北捷運早在2005年就取消「靠右站立讓出左側」政策,但卻不肯宣傳落實導致爭議不斷。(圖:自由時報)

台北捷運靠右站立的正義魔人文化獨樹一格

自以為是的正義魔人在台灣無所不在,特別是與捷運有關的文化更是獨樹一格。最近,台北捷運忠孝復興站因為人潮眾多,尖峰時刻常出現電扶梯「右邊大排長龍、左邊空蕩蕩」狀況,捷運工作管理人員只能大喊「排成兩排,左右都可以站人」,但乘客卻無視勸導,依然只站電扶梯右側,空出左側。

由於北捷公開呼籲電扶梯站好站滿,這使得許多知道北捷根本早就取消「靠右站立、讓出左側」規定的網友在網路上呼籲大家在捷運電扶梯站好站滿。台北捷運在1999年積極宣傳電扶梯「靠右站立、左側通行」,但左側通行政策卻在2004年造成乘客掀頭皮重傷事件,於是台北捷運在2005年改為推動「緊握扶手、站穩踏階」規定。然而,台北捷運卻鄉愿不積極宣傳已經取消靠右站的規定,如今造成了更多的爭議。首先,北捷不僅尖峰時間出現右側站滿且後方大排長龍,左側卻空空如也,僅有少數人不顧安全在電扶梯上疾行的狀況。其次,若有人遵守台北捷運的「緊握扶手、站穩踏階」規定,站立在左側時,不僅會遇到高喊「借過」者,更會出現「正義魔人」指責站立左側者。

因為台北捷運鄉愿,也不積極處理問題,現在聲稱忠孝復興捷運的「站好站滿」只是權宜之計,等於漠視遵守「緊握扶手、站穩踏階」規定者繼續被正義魔人辱罵。現在,就連懷孕七個月的藝人隋棠在電扶梯上遭在左側行走的乘客狠狠撞開,但是北捷回應卻是迂迴鄉愿(link is external),不僅網友對北捷感到無奈,北捷的不正義更是導致正義魔人不斷產出的主因之一。

台灣的正義魔人無處不在,只是自以為是的正義往往令人費解。例如,當網友在網路上公布交通爭議的影片,或是發生未成年少年飆車出事時,網友紛紛扮演正義使者大罵違法者。然而,當網友自己在道路上成為車輛駕駛人時,是否又遵守交通規則呢?每當有新聞報導縣市政府架設的闖紅燈與超速照相機是搶錢機器時,網友紛紛辱罵政府搶錢。此外,也曾經發生過網友公布照片指責有人專門檢舉交通違規是為了賺取「獎金」,網友也自以為正義大罵檢舉違規者是為了賺錢;然而,檢舉交通違規並沒有獎金可賺,有檢舉獎金者是環保相關的檢舉案件。

尤其,這一兩年來,台灣網路上流傳著一張香港地鐵乘客未讓座老年人的照片;然而,台灣網友卻指著這張港鐵照片大罵台灣年輕人世風日下不肯讓座;更可怕的是,這張照片竟然有超過1萬名台灣臉書使用者轉載開罵。這則台灣正義魔人不先分辨照片來源就開罵的烏龍事件,可說是台灣正義魔人發揮極致的表現。

顯然,台灣自以為是的正義魔人,往往都在搞不清楚狀況下,就逕行伸張自以為是的「正義」,而這種莫名其妙的「正義」,可說是台灣的一種奇觀。

這是香港地鐵的照片,卻被台灣網友當作台灣的捷運照片用來痛斥年輕人不讓座。

《 Israel Kamakawiwo’ole – What A Wonderful World / Somewhere Over The Rainbow 

Somewhere over the rainbow
Way up high
And the dreams that you dreamed of
Once in a lullaby

Somewhere over the rainbow
Blue birds fly
And the dreams that you dreamed of
Dreams really do come true ooh oh

Someday I’ll wish upon a star
Wake up where the clouds are far behind me
Where trouble melts like lemon drops
High above the chimney top
That’s where you’ll find me

Oh, somewhere over the rainbow bluebirds fly
And the dream that you dare to,
Oh why, oh why can’t I?

Well I see trees of green and red roses too,
I’ll watch them bloom for me and you
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world

Well I see skies of blue
And I see clouds of white
And the brightness of day
I like the dark
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world

The colors of the rainbow so pretty in the sky
Are also on the faces of people passing by
I see friends shaking hands
Singing, “How do you do?”
They’re really singing, “I…I love you.”

I hear babies cry and I watch them grow,
They’ll learn much more than we’ll know
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world world

Someday I’ll wish upon a star,
Wake up where the clouds are far behind me
Where trouble melts like lemon drops
High above the chimney top
That’s where you’ll find me

Oh, somewhere over the rainbow way up high
And the dream that you dare to, why, oh why can’t I? I?

【印度想想】Taxi War:Uber在印度與本土品牌Ola的浴血奮戰|吳秉霖


除了在消費現場的價格戰之外,Uber與Ola間的角力也延燒到法庭之上。2015年10月,Ola舉發Uber違反最高法院要求APP計程車業者須使用壓縮天然氣(CNG)車輛的命令;幾個月後Uber控告Ola惡意在Uber平台上創建超過93000個帳號,以超過40萬筆假叫車請求癱瘓Uber的服務。Uber宣稱Ola的行為造成兩萬名司機退出Uber平台,並將向Ola求償740萬美元;這不是Ola第一次在法庭上面對這樣的控訴,另一個APP叫車服務品牌Jugnoo也宣稱Ola員工惡意在十天內透過800個假帳號做出兩萬筆的訂車請求。Ola否認上述所有行為。

人氣指數: 174

在APP叫車服務橫掃印度市場之前,計程車並不在一般大眾的交通選項裡:在2014年之前的印度,除了特定地區,人們是沒有辦法在路上攔到計程車的;三輪的嘟嘟車(Auto-Rickshaw)和人力車(Bike-Rickshaw)是最後一哩路連結服務主要的提供者。任何一個想要在炎熱夏天坐進有冷氣的計程車的消費者,必須預先撥打電話給無線電計程車服務商,如美路計程車(Meru Cabs, 創立於2006年)或超級計程車(Mega Cabs, 創立於2001年)預定,並在指定的時間與地點上車。

印度人力車(圖片來源:By Nkasija, Public Domain)

印度2.77億網路人口使用APP叫車服務的次數,在2014年第一季時仍然是全球網際網路上的一個小點,但在三年後的今天,已經成長為全世界僅次中國和北美服務使用次數最多的市場。以Uber和Ola為首的兩間APP叫車服務,正想盡辦法要在計程車市場上攫取屬於自己的一席之地:根據日本軟體銀行(SoftBank Group)預估,整個印度計程車市場於2020年時將價值高達70億美金。

Ola創立於2010年,其創辦人巴哈為許‧阿格瓦(Bhavish Aggarwal)和安克特‧巴哈提(Ankit Bhati)皆是孟買印度管理學院(IIT-Bombay)的畢業生。在推出市場急需的APP點對點運輸服務後,Ola在計程車市場中急速竄起。Ola的第一個里程碑是2014年從日本軟體銀行(SoftBank)獲得2.1億美元的投資;那一年Ola的營業額是42億盧比(約20億台幣,下同),遠超過已創立九年,曾經是印度計程車市場翹楚的老前輩美路計程車28億盧比的營業額。截至2016年年底,Ola的估值已達50億美金,擠身獨角獸新創公司之列,在全印度一百多個城市擁有45萬名合作司機。

另一家APP叫車服務的獨角獸公司Uber,遲至2013年年底才進入印度市場。在發現原先規劃的由高級車種切入市場的策略不管用後,Uber迅速加入了激烈競爭的低價車派遣市場裡。在2015年初,Uber的市場佔有率估計仍僅為約5%;到了年中,Uber找來了曾任Rent.com總經理的阿密特‧賈印(Amit Jain)出任其印度總負責人,並宣示將投資10億美金於印度市場;印度市場領導者Ola當時在數輪投資後獲得的投資總額也不過6.75億美金──是個了不起的數字,但仍無法抵擋全球估值680億美金的Uber以錢海戰術奪取司機的忠誠度和以令人無法拒絕的低廉價格獲取消費者。為了迎合印度市場的特性,印度Uber也在同年5月改為可接受現金付款。Uber於2016年3月宣稱已獲取超過35%的市場份額,在全印度27個主要城市中擁有約35萬名合作司機。

就像亞馬遜(Amazon)和印度本土電子商務品牌Flipkart間激烈的價格競爭一樣,Uber和Ola正以比誰錢多氣長的方式較量著彼此。2016年時Uber將最低階產品UberGo的價格調降到每公里7盧比(新台幣3.21元),成功攫取當時最低要價每公里10盧比的Ola的市場份額;Ola旋即跟進,推出每公里只需要6盧比的Ola Micro,成功阻止了市場佔有率滑落的趨勢。這種較量並不便宜,Uber和Ola皆花費了大筆金額在獲取使用者、招攬司機,以及購入新的車輛並租賃給潛在合作司機上。世界最大獨角獸公司Uber到2016年底獲得的總投資125億美金超過Ola獲得的投資總額12億美金的10倍,使得Ola正急切地尋找新一輪的投資者,以支應其與世界上最有錢的對手之間昂貴的金錢戰爭。

除了在消費現場的價格戰之外,Uber與Ola間的角力也延燒到法庭之上。2015年10月,Ola舉發Uber違反最高法院要求APP計程車業者須使用壓縮天然氣(CNG)車輛的命令;幾個月後Uber控告Ola惡意在Uber平台上創建超過93000個帳號,以超過40萬筆假叫車請求癱瘓Uber的服務。Uber宣稱Ola的行為造成兩萬名司機退出Uber平台,並將向Ola求償740萬美元;這不是Ola第一次在法庭上面對這樣的控訴,另一個APP叫車服務品牌Jugnoo也宣稱Ola員工惡意在十天內透過800個假帳號做出兩萬筆的訂車請求。Ola否認上述所有行為。

相較於Uber在世界各國碰到的法令困境,Uber和Ola等APP叫車服務算是受到印度政府相當友善的對待。除了在某些邦遇到困難,例如Ola總部所在的城市班加羅爾(Bangalore)的卡纳塔克邦(Karnataka)邦政府禁止Uber與Ola等APP在尖峰時刻提高收費,他們將APP叫車服務和其他計程車公司一視同仁,車輛定價皆須在政府規定的限制之內;以及德里市政府曾經因牌照問題短暫禁止過Ola的服務之外,到目前仍未發生過全面性的挑戰。

在某種層面上,APP叫車服務受到如此歡迎是因為他們確實解決了政府、司機與普羅大眾遇到的困難。眾所周知印度在公共交通建設上的不足,APP叫車服務破壞式創新的橫空出世,很大程度改善了印度政府曾感到束手無策的難題。對消費者而言,透過手機軟體來媒合車輛,無論是地點、路線或是收費皆透過統一的平台完成,提供跨語言溝通的能力(別忘了印度有22種官方語言和超過兩千種方言)與避免司機敲詐的保障(別懷疑網路上看到的那些稀奇古怪的案例,它們很可能都是真的)。對於職業司機而言,APP叫車服務提供了穩定的收入,亦免去了與乘客溝通路線與講價的困擾;以孟買(Mumbai)為例,Uber或Ola司機一個月能夠有25,000盧比到60,000盧比(新台幣11472至27532元)的收入,遠超過傳統計程車司機8,000到10,000盧比的月收入。

傳統計程車業者的確受到打擊。往年計程車工會每年都會要求政府調漲法定計程車費用,但今年這樣的要求仍無聲無息──計程車工會擔心費率上漲會進一步傷害到他們已岌岌可危的市場地位。幸好,印度的市場白地(white space)仍非常多,即使出現了破壞性創新的對手,對於傳統業者而言仍有足夠的空間迴旋;Ola表示,他們有許多客戶是第一次乘坐裝有冷氣的車輛,顯示除了攫取傳統計程車業者的市場份額之外,Uber和Ola其實是在拓展市場的整體容量;另一方面,傳統業者也轉向承攬制的Uber和Ola所沒有優勢的市場:如機場接送這類長程服務或如飯店車隊等講究司機訓練和素質的企業型客戶。

看著Uber即將於今年2月10日退出台灣市場,相較於他們在印度市場的大開大闔,天時、地利與人和,該是影響最大的關鍵因素。

《 Mazzy Star – Fade Into You 》

I wanna hold the hand inside you
I wanna take the breath that’s true
I look to you and I see nothing
I look to you to see the truth
You live your life, you go in shadow
You’ll come upon and you’ll go black
Some kind of night into your darkness
Close your eyes with what’s not there
Fade into you
Strange you never knew
Fade into you
I think it’s strange you never knew
The strange light comes on slowly
A stranger’s heart is out of home
You put your hands into your head
And your smiles cover your heart

數千藍鯨脂水母沖上岸! 昆士蘭海灘滿滿「藍色氣泡」

 建立於 2017/02/05

摘錄自2017年2月4日東森新聞報導

「整片沙灘就像是被氣泡覆蓋一樣」24歲的Charlotte Lawson日前在澳洲昆士蘭詭計灣(Deception Bay)海灘發現海水顏色不尋常,走上前一看,發現竟是數千隻的藍鯨脂水母(blue blubber jellyfish),隨後把照片PO上臉書,隨即引發熱議。專家則指出,這種景象可能是因為海水變暖、沒有天敵、風和潮汐等條件造成的。

綜合外媒報導,海洋生物專家Lisa-Ann Gershwin說,這種不尋常的景象可能是因海水變暖、沒有捕食者、風和潮汐等條件的影響,其實這是一種自然現象,是牠們生命週期的一部分,但如果遇到風吹、水位隨著潮汐降低,當牠們在沙上乾掉後,就會陷入困境而被捕食。

不過,就連Lisa-Ann Gershwin都指出,從沒見過這麼大規模擱淺的水母。而藍鯨脂水母The blue blubber jellyfish 大小可以達到35公分,通常在昆士蘭州東南部被發現,但很少以這麼大規模的數量的出現。

Morning smiles
Like the face
Of a newborn child
Innocent, unknowing.
Winter’s end
Promises
Of a long lost friend.
Speaks to me of comfort
But I fear
I have nothing to give.
I have so much
To lose here in this lonely place.
Tangled up in your embrace
There’s there’s nothing I’d like better than
To fall.
But I fear
I have nothing to give.
Wind in time
Rapes the flower
Trembling on the vine
And nothing yields to shelter
From above.
They say temptation will destroy our love.
The never ending hunger
But I fear
I have nothing to give
I have so much
To lose here in this lonely place
Tangled up in our embrace
There’s nothing I’d like better than
To fall
But I fear
I have nothing to give.
I have so much to lose.
I have nothing to give.
We have so much to lose

《 Sarah McLachlan – Angel 》

Spend all your time waiting
For that second chance
For a break that would make it okay
There’s always some reason
To feel not good enough
And it’s hard, at the end of the day
I need some distraction
Oh, beautiful release
Memories seep from my veins
And maybe empty
Oh, and weightless, and maybe
I’ll find some peace tonight
In the arms of the angel
Fly away from here
From this dark, cold hotel room
And the endlessness that you fear
You are pulled from the wreckage
Of your silent reverie
You’re in the arms of the angel
May you find some comfort here
So tired of the straight line
And everywhere you turn
There’s vultures and thieves at your back
The storm keeps on twisting
Keep on building the lies
That you make up for all that you lack
It don’t make no difference
Escape one last time
It’s easier to believe in this sweet madness
Oh, this glorious sadness
That brings me to my knees
In the arms of the angel
Fly away from here
From this dark, cold hotel room
And the endlessness that you fear
You are pulled from the wreckage
Of your silent reverie
You’re in the arms of the angel
May you find some comfort here
You’re in the arms of the angel
May you find some comfort here

核食能安?

核食能安?

 建立於 2017/02/06

採訪、撰稿:胡慕情;攝影、剪輯:陳慶鍾

「現在這個地方是綠色區,就是安全區。旁邊的工作人員都沒戴口罩都可以在這走來走去。目前電廠內大概九成都是綠色區。」東京電力公司原子能選址總部長岡村祐一,在搖晃的公務車上對我們說明,為了把曾經超過1500微西弗的超高輻射環境,降到可以只戴口罩就行走的狀況,六年來,東電去除了福島第一核電廠內的表土,再鋪上柏油或水泥。經過這些除污工程,目前輻射的環境背景值,已經和台北、東京,相差無幾。

福島核災,是因為斷電導致爐心無法冷卻而熔毀的結果。六年來,為了防止反應爐因為高溫再度爆炸,東電持續施澆冷卻水來降溫,卻也製造大量核污染水。2013年,爆發儲槽洩漏約300公噸高輻射污水事件,迫使東電必須想辦法善後。

高大的儲槽,一座又一座連綿不絕,目前電廠裡透過儲槽,存放了大約90萬噸的水。水裡含括的核污染物質,高達62種。東電興建三座淨水設備來清除核種,目前除了氚以外,多半物質都可以被去除後,再重複利用於冷卻爐心。可是冷卻過程,會污染地下水質,地下水的輻射值,曾經超標一萬倍。

福島第一核電廠西高東低,地下水流經核電機組下方,就會受到污染。為了解決地下水污染問題。東電在2015年開始興建凍土壁。凍土壁厚約2公尺,深入地下30公尺的不透水層,把一號機到四號機組全部包圍起來,防止地下水流入。不過,為了維持地下水和污染水的恐怖平衡,目前東電還沒有將凍土壁完全凍結。

核災第六年,地下水污染的控制仍待加強,但海水污染的部分,在持續進行每日監控後,已有大幅改善。

每天天還沒亮,採樣船就要出海,到福島電廠的港灣裡,取五個樣本進行分析。福島核災大量溢散的輻射塵中,主要包含的放射性物質,是碘131、鍶90、銫134與銫137。而為了減少沉降在底泥的輻射塵影響水質,東電也運進大量乾淨泥沙,鋪在底泥上頭來進行改善。

根據東電監測結果,2013年,海水還有部分銫與鍶的檢出,到了2017年,已經全數未檢出。然而,日本原子能研究開發機構,在2016年3月發表的試算結果顯示,福島第一核電廠洩漏的銫134與銫137,高達24700兆貝克,其中約有七成輻射,通通流入海中,重創福島與周邊縣市漁業。

為了重振漁業,福島縣政府進行捕撈試驗來確定輻射污染情形,災後至今,檢驗種類已經增加到72種。根據福島漁協的檢驗結果,至今仍有每公斤超過100貝克輻射量的底棲魚類。因為放射性物質的影響,還有28種魚貝類無法出貨。福島漁協指出,這28種魚貝類包括沿岸漁業的重要魚貝類,因此上市禁令解除的時程,將會大大影響漁業作業重啟的時期。

離開海岸,我們來到當時發生爆炸的核電機組旁。爆炸後的屋頂垮下來還掛在上面,殘骸狀況並未收拾完全。核災爆發時,四號機在歲修,東電在2014年,已經順利取出燃料棒。其他反應爐,因為輻射劑量太高,一直到2015年,東電才開發技術掌握熔解現況。2017年,會開始嘗試取出三號機的燃料棒,至於一、二號機,希望在2020年東京奧運舉辦前進行。

發生爆炸的核電機組至今仍發出高劑量輻射。攝影:陳慶鍾。

這三座機組,至今還會發射高達每小時將近200微西弗的輻射。攝影記者才剛走近,隨身的輻射偵測器就發出警告聲。東電強調,這些數值是輻射能所造成,透過加蓋方式遮蔽,廠區已經不再有輻射塵外洩,導致污染農作的情況。為了證明福島食品十分安全,福島電廠內員工食堂的供餐,一律採用當地蔬果和米飯。但先前核污外洩的傷害,真的癒合了嗎?

福島核災發生時,日本政府發布命令,要求以福島電廠為核心,向外擴散三十公里的居民,全數離開避難。目前,葛尾村、川俁町與南相馬市部分區域,被列為避難指示解除準備區域,富岡町、飯館村與部分南相馬市,則是居住限制區。至於浪江町和福島電廠所在的雙葉町、大熊町,依然是歸還困難區。

門馬英隆,住在距離福島電廠21公里遠的浪江町。核災發生時,當地輻射值曾飆高到每小時330微西弗。2015年下半年,日本政府才開放居民在白天短暫回家收拾殘局。儘管日本政府將開放他們返家,門馬英隆卻決定放棄家族經營將近百年的菓子店,遠離故鄉。

不同於門馬英隆,農民橘內義知,選擇留在家鄉,面對挑戰。12月,福島地區農忙已近尾聲。遼闊的蘋果園只剩一些被蟲鳥啃食的零星果實。橘內義知手腳俐落地包裝完最後一批採收的鮮豔蘋果,準備出貨。

橘內義知說,這是日本史上第一次發生核災,沒有人知道該怎麼辦,所有資訊都一片混亂,核災發生的3月,剛好是果樹發芽的時間,因為他們不屬於強迫避難災民,自行避難沒有補償,考慮果樹成長不會停,他和妻子選擇留在福島,繼續照顧果樹,期待能支撐家計。沒想到,2011年秋天,爆發輻射超標事件,導致農產品大量滯銷,這讓福島農民決定組織土壤俱樂部來自力救濟。

自力救濟的方式,包括找出定點,將果園畫出格子狀進行土壤表面的輻射偵測,土壤俱樂部的每座農園,都有自己的農園輻射地圖。其次是用高壓水柱沖洗每棵果樹的表面,把輻射物質用水沖走。農民的努力,在科學偵測上獲得成果。但在面對消費者時,卻遇到阻礙。

福島災後,日本政府針對福島、青森、岩手、宮城、山形、茨城、栃木、群馬、埼玉、千葉、新潟、長野、靜岡等13個縣市進行出貨管制。災後不久,日本政府將原本食品中的輻射容許量從每公斤370貝克放寬到500貝克,這個政策為消費者帶來食安陰影。不論日本政府如何促銷東北復興,鼓勵餐廳與消費者購買當地農產品,核災區食品在日本國內,還是有滯銷問題。

不只日本,各國也對核災區食品進行進口管制。台灣自2011年3月25日起,開始禁止福島縣,和福島核一廠南方的茨城、栃木、群馬與千葉縣等食品輸入。根據日本農林水產省統計,2010年前,日本農林水產及食品出口總額有4,920 億元,2011年降為 4511億元、2012 年則為 4497億元。各國逐步解禁後連三年提高,2015年出口總額飆升至7451億元。而災後至今,日本不斷希望進口日本食品大戶台灣,研擬開放政策。

農委會副主委陳吉仲表示,以稻米為例,2011年5月,針對福島或福島旁邊四個縣進行全面禁止進口的禁令,有15個國家;但2016年10月,只剩兩個國家,「就是中國大陸跟我們。」陳吉仲強調,台灣雖然礙於國際貿易規範,必須遵守會員守則,但開放前提,是絕對保證食品的安全。

2016年11月,立法院衛環委員會,正式討論是否開放除了福島外,千葉、茨城、栃木及群馬縣,除了水、奶粉、茶及野生水產品之外的食品進口。行政部門認為,這四縣的產品只要附上產地及輻射雙證,就可以保證安全。這樣的說法,被批評是重外交、輕食安,民間團體緊急召開記者會,呼籲行政部門不要草率行事。

為瞭解目前福島核災區的風險管制情況,民間團體決定自費前往核災區進行訪調。長期協助農民改善污染情況的學者石井秀樹指出,輻射塵會隨風向、地形、土質,而有輻射高低差異,如果用核災避難時的單一標準來管理核災區食品,很容易造成社會對立。他的提醒,正來自觀察日本災後輻射食品管理的各種矛盾。

草莓,是栃木縣最重要的產物,也是栃木縣向來想出口台灣的產品。那須高原農園觀光部長椎貝達朗指出,那須高原町的草莓園多半採溫室種植,也有定期檢驗,當地人並不覺得有輻射污染問題。核災後,只因道路中斷受到短暫衝擊。經過那須町大力宣傳,近兩年,來採果的台灣遊客甚至絡繹不絕。

在我們採訪期間,剛好有一組台灣旅遊團來採果。許小姐表示,知道栃木縣食品被禁止出口到台灣,「但覺得它離福島還是有點距離,應該還算安全。」帶著一歲左右的嬰兒採果、吃草莓,她沒有太多恐懼,認為可以支持福島周邊縣市的食品進口。

距離福島遠近,是一般民眾用來判斷輻射安全疑慮的第一要件,但栃木縣政府表示,距離遠近,不代表輻射污染全貌。核災發生時,只有縣北部分區域受到輻射塵污染,縣南沒有受到影響。經過科學檢驗後,栃木縣的限制出貨產品,只針對核爆發生時位於戶外的東西。而在經過除污及施作鉀肥來抑制農作物吸收放射性元素後,幾乎沒有超標問題。這幾年下來,已逐漸取得消費者信任。

日本國內對茨城、栃木等地農產的安全疑慮逐漸消失。攝影:陳慶鍾。

栃木縣政府強調,如果是福島核電廠,還有部分地區依然限制人員進入的情況,消費者當然值得憂慮,但周邊縣市如栃木,距離核電廠距離很遠,加上五年來一直實施相關對策,日本國內對栃木縣的安全性疑慮,早已消失。

不止栃木縣,群馬當地,似乎也不再焦慮輻射風險。

天還沒亮,群馬縣的東毛酪農組合,已經開始備貨,準備運送牛奶到縣內的各個小學。東毛酪農組合在1952年,由當地農戶成立。1983年,引進低溫殺菌,提供牛奶給學校營養午餐,成為業務核心。

福島核災發生時,只有位於山上的根利牧場,因為輻射影響牧草種植而必須除污。由於其他農戶沒有受到波及,整體酪農業務,和災前一樣順利。

近午,牛奶配送車來到了太田市寶泉南小學校。孩子開始準備午餐的配送餐具,等最後一堂課結束,就能用餐。校長表示,一開始家長確實會擔憂輻射影響,但透過透明公開的資訊公布,早就沒有疑慮。

對栃木和群馬縣的居民來說,他們早已步入正常生活。認為國際對當地食品的全面封殺,會對他們產生風評被害。但輻射基準值是否安全、可靠?福島居民有不一樣的想法。

地方政府要求學校採用核災區的農產品,引起家長憂心。攝影:陳慶鍾

福島災後一個月,正值學校開學。當時輻射檢驗體系還沒建立,地方政府卻要求學校採用核災區食材做營養午餐。野口時子認為,災時訊息混亂,避難政策不夠確實,孩子已被迫暴露在高輻射濃度環境裡,為了避免二次受暴,必須採取自救措施。她在福島郡山市創辦3a事務所,提供憂心的家長有購買安心食材的選擇。

災後至今,野口時子都堅持吃西日本的食物,但隨著日本政府宣告福島核災第一階段重建已告一段落,她開始被社區視為異類。

根據日本政府針對福島地區,2011年出生,0至18歲孩子進行的健康追蹤顯示,第一輪檢驗中,有116人疑似罹患甲狀腺癌,手術後確診有101人都是惡性腫瘤。而目前只完成六成的第二次檢驗裡,已經發現有59人罹患癌症。日本政府目前否認癌症與核災的關聯,但醫師種市靖行認為,這種說法過於武斷。

「政府說,從長崎、廣島原爆的案例來看,從原爆後到甲狀腺癌發病,需要十年時間。因此車諾比地區在核災後五年發現的小兒甲狀腺癌,就被排除與核電事故相關。但隨著進一步的檢查結果得知,車諾比事件確實在五年內有導致小兒甲狀腺癌發病。因此以歷史來看,原本普遍認為要十年時間,後來一般認知改為五年。所以現在所謂的五年才會發病,也不一定完全正確。」

種市靖行本來是骨科醫師,對政府花在每個受檢孩童上的時間只有兩到三分鐘,感到不安,決定學習甲狀腺相關知識。取得相關證照後,他加入政府的健康追蹤體系,發現政府太輕忽透過攝取食物累積低劑量輻射對健康的威脅。

「中央政府訂定的基準值,事故剛發生時是500貝克,現在是100貝克。但沒說是安全值,而是基準值,而基準值真的對健康沒有影響嗎?這是個正確的數據嗎?其實誰都不知道。」種市靖行指出,銫在人體的半衰期有九十天,如果每天必須攝取的食物都有低劑量輻射,長久下來,還是會累積。目前福島地區,已經出現相關案例。

「福島縣內的某個行政區,經WBC檢查結果,發現有高中生的數值偏高,大家就開始拚命找原因。發現他們並沒有吃輻射值極端高的食品。進一步查詢後才得知,是因為飯吃得很多而累積。」日本學童食用白米累積量的案例,揭露基準設定的弔詭之處。而食品中輻射容許量的基準設定,也難以脫離政治介入。

回顧2012年,日本也曾對台灣提出開放核災區食品要求。當時執政黨雖然拒絕,卻提出食品中輻射容許量修訂草案,將每公斤370貝克的基準值,提高到每公斤600貝克,被視為是替日本輻射食品開後門,遭到民間團體抵制。

當年民間團體反對理由之一,是質疑台灣的邊境把關能力。災後六年,台灣進口日本食品數量比災前多了50%,邊境抽驗比例卻依然維持8%。以2016年11月14日為例,只抽驗了36件樣品。而目前抽驗結果雖都符合台灣現行標準,卻頻頻發現偽標事件。

衛福部次長何啟功於2016年11月表示,在2015年查獲改標事件後,就訂定日本進口食品須附產地證明跟輻射證明,實施到現在,因為持續加強查緝,並沒有發現改標問題;陳吉仲則補充,除了雙證,未來核災區食品進入邊境,還有衛福部的抽驗機制,如果是高風險的產品,不排除進行逐批抽驗。

假日早晨,距離福島電廠一百公里遠的千葉柏市,正舉辦在地的農夫市集。市集的目的,是協助農民跟消費者重建信任。穿梭在攤位裡的五十嵐泰正,是主要發起人。他表示曾經在千葉柏市的一處空地,測量到57.5微西弗,相當於當時在第一核電廠內的數值,而引發消費者恐慌,消費者擔憂抽檢並不能保證食物安全。

為了修補裂痕,五十嵐泰正聯合農民發放問卷去了解消費者的疑慮,發現消費者需要一套他們可接受的自主檢驗體系來掌握風險。在生產者和消費者共同討論下,他們訂出了每公斤20貝克的輻射容許值,農家依照這項原則接受檢查與出貨,幾年下來,柏市的做法有了正面成效。

各種疏漏,促成日本民間團體發展自主檢驗機制。一大早,日本生活俱樂部在埼玉縣青果市場內的包裝生產線,已經忙得不可開交。生活俱樂部是一個重視生產安全的消費者團體,鎚田博表示官方對土壤或食品的抽驗,在在都有漏網之魚,尤其日本政府將檢驗資源都投注在福島,反而忽略了其他地區的把關。「宮城縣非常寬鬆,幾乎都沒做檢查,宮城縣其實有受污染,限制出貨品項卻非常少。」

基於對低劑量輻射風險危害的不確定性,生活俱樂部向來主張,輻射檢出量應該越低越好。但鎚田博坦言,生活俱樂部在災後並非以零檢出為目標,而是以6貝克作為檢驗基準,25貝克為出貨基準。

災後六年,透過各方努力,消費者和農民的對立,逐漸緩和。根據日本消費廳進行的調查顯示,不想買到輻射污染食品的消費者中,大約只有兩成會在意產地來源。但鎚田博強調,這樣的結果,實在是情非得已:「當時只吃進口食品,完全不吃日本食物的人非常多,但是能長期吃進口食品的畢竟少數。一般如果不吃國產食品,就沒東西吃了,大家都忍耐地吃。」

在拜訪農民、學者與自主檢驗團體後,環保團體認為,目前台灣除了不宜開放核災區食品,針對輻射食品的管制範圍與品項,也都需要更嚴謹的調整。綠色公民行動聯盟副秘書長洪申翰建議,政府應該以更大幅度的範圍進行管制,同時,也要健全民間的自主檢驗機制。

民間團體的呼籲,被執政黨納入行政程序裡進行評估,但政策在缺乏配套下就先宣布,使社會對食安抱持高度疑慮,最終還是引發肢體衝突;而在野黨將議題窄化成政治議題,更讓公共討論無法進行。希望促成官方與民間對話的第三方議事小組成員呂家華表示,「類似的衝突絕對不會只在日本核災後食品管制問題上。可預期未來還有美豬、基改食品管制風險議題的挑戰。如果政府再用專斷單向的決策模式,嘴上講公民參與,政策後端已經有大約方向才進行,根本沒有辦法去處理問題,反而會使爭議越演越烈。」

在第三方議事團體的呼籲下,目前執政黨已經暫停相關程序的推進。但如何解決現行管制的缺漏,仍在未定之天。

從住居到食物,日本政府試圖一步步抹去核災痕跡,但核災區食品的管制糾葛,明白顯示,抹去並不等於復興。和日本經貿密切、始終會吃到日本食品的台灣,要選擇站在什麼樣的位置?

《 10,000 Maniacs – Trouble Me 》


《 10,000 Maniacs – Trouble Me 》

Trouble me, disturb me with all your cares and you worries.
Trouble me on the days when you feel spent.
Why let your shoulders bend underneath this burden when my back is sturdy and strong?
Trouble me.
Speak to me, don’t mislead me, the calm I feel means a storm is swelling;
there’s no telling where it starts or how it ends.
Speak to me, why are you building this thick brick wall to defend me when your silence is my greatest fear?
Why let your shoulders bend underneath this burden when my back is sturdy and strong?
Speak to me.
Let me have a look inside these eyes while I’m learning.
Please don’t hide them just because of tears.
Let me send you off to sleep with a “There, there, now stop your turning and tossing.”
Let me know where the hurt is and how to heal.
Spare me? Don’t spare me anything troubling.
Trouble me, disturb me with all your cares and you worries.
Speak to me and let our words build a shelter from the storm.
Lastly, let me know what I can mend.
There’s more, honestly, than my sweet friend, you can see.
Trust is what I’m offering if you trouble me.

瀕危物種是下一個? 美狩獵團體遊說川普放寬保育措施

瀕危物種是下一個? 美狩獵團體遊說川普放寬保育措施

美國影響力最大的狩獵遊說團體「國際狩獵俱樂部」(Safari Club International,SCI)本月舉辦拍賣會,要以280頭南非動物的性命換取募款,遊說川普政權放寬受威脅物種保護政策,「非洲五霸」——非洲象、黑犀牛、獅子、非洲水牛和豹都可能受到影響。

拍賣會上總價值高達530萬美元的獵遊行程中,南非獵遊總價值約101萬美元。其他行程還包含狩獵全球約1000隻哺乳動物,包括瀕危的北極熊。SCI將直接利用競標獲利遊說美國政府支持狩獵活動。

2月1至4日於美國拉斯維加的斯戰利品狩獵大會上,SCI提供60趟非洲獵遊行程讓2萬5000位獵人競標。美國獵人有機會在這些行程中,獵殺南非各種明星動物——包括長頸鹿、河馬、斑馬等——以及119種其他「加價升等」動物。

SCI希望能藉此對川普政府形成穩定影響力,尤其是掌管自然資源的內政部。該團體還金援不少美國政治行動委員會(簡稱PAC),其中的「捍衛狩獵基金」(Hunter Defense Fund)即是負責積極拉抬、支持戰利品狩獵活動的政治人物進入國會。

SCI今年1月對美國漁業與野生物管理局提出訴訟,為阿拉斯加自然保護區的空中狩獵以及其他不人道的狩獵活動辯護。

川普的兒子二世和艾瑞克都是戰利品獵人。他們與非洲狩獵戰利品合照的影像激怒了不少保育人士和愛護野生動物者。

SCI也影響美國政府對不少非洲國家的政策。SCI曾脅迫那米比亞撤銷對獵豹和花豹的狩獵禁令、說服贊比亞撤銷對獅子和獵豹的狩獵禁令。2015年9月,SCI和其他狩獵遊說組織與南非環境事務部和其他非洲國家代表閉門會議,討論戰利品狩獵的利益。媒體記者與反狩獵保育團體不得其門而入,引發對SCI與環境事務部之間關係的高度懷疑。

此外,另有兩個價值1萬6500美元與1萬5000美元的非洲獵遊行程開放線上競標。這兩個行程是獵犬狩獵(hounding),即獵人放出獵犬追逐獵物,直到獵物筋疲力盡或落入陷阱,容易遭獵人獵捕。

另一家戰利品狩獵公司(Watts Trophy Hunting)甚至給出加價升等,提供一隻大象和一隻非洲獅的獵殺名額。這兩個物種已因盜獵陷入生存危機,戰利品狩獵只會讓問題雪上加霜。

爭議最大的是,競標項目還包含了圈養狩獵行程。在圈養狩獵的過程中,獵物是困在沒有逃跑機會的圍籬內,供獵人獵殺。

國際人道協會(Humane Society International)目前提出呼籲,希望南非公民聯署聲明,中止戰利品狩獵這樣殘忍的活動。

U.S. Hunters Auction African Hunts for $$ to Lobby Trump
CAPE TOWN, South Africa, February 1, 2017 (ENS)

Safari Club International, America’s most powerful hunting lobby group, this week will auction the lives of 280 South African animals to raise funds to lobby the Trump administration against measures protecting threatened species, such as the Big Five: elephant, rhino, lion, buffalo and leopard.

At a trophy hunting convention the Safari Club International is hosting in Las Vegas February 1-4, the hunting lobby group expects an estimated 25,000 hunters to bid on at least 60 South African hunting trips.

American hunters are being offered the chance to kill all of South Africa’s iconic species.

Successful bidders will be able to shoot giraffe, hippo, zebra, baboon, wildebeest, sable antelope, warthog, greater kudu, impala, springbok, blesbok, caracal, African wildcat, with 119 other animals proffered as “upgrades” for an additional cost.

The South Africa hunts are valued at US$1.01 million, from an estimated total of US$5.3 million from other hunts on auction. These include the hunting of some 1,000 mammals internationally, including imperiled polar bears.

All profits from the trophy hunts will go directly toward funding SCI to actively lobby the U.S. government towards a pro-hunting stance. The group will hope to wield considerable influence on the Trump administration, especially the Department of the Interior, which manages natural resources.

Based in Tucson, Arizona, SCI filed a lawsuit against the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in January defending the practice of aerial hunting and other inhumane predator-killing practices in natural refuges in Alaska.

The group financially supports U.S. political action committees (PACs) like the Hunter Defense Fund, which actively works to elect pro-trophy hunting politicians to Congress.

President Trump’s sons, Donald Jr. and Eric, are both trophy hunters and images of their African safari kills have angered conservationists and wildlife lovers.

SCI also influences U.S. government policies toward several African nations.

In 2010, SCI forced Namibia to reverse its ban on leopard and cheetah hunting. A similar scenario occurred in Zambia when the powerful lobby group persuaded the Zambian government to reverse its ban on hunting lions and leopards.

In September 2015, SCI and other pro-hunting organizations met behind closed doors with the South African Department of Environmental Affairs and representatives of other African nations in Polokwane to discuss the “benefits” of trophy hunting.

Journalists and non-hunting conservation groups were barred from the meeting, which generated suspicion as to the exact nature of SCI’s involvement with the Department of Environmental Affairs.

This week, as part of the online auctions, there will be two South Africa hunts valued at US$16,500 and US$15,000 each  that offer to hunt wildlife with dogs. This controversial practice, known as “hounding,” sets dogs upon a wild animal, which is chased until exhausted, trapped, and easily shot.

These auctions can be seen here and here.

One auction from Watts Trophy Hunting offers an upgrade to kill an elephant and an African lion. Extremely high levels of poaching are already endangering both species and hunting them will only exacerbate the problem.

Most controversially, some of the auctions offer canned hunting – the cruel practice in which animals are hunted within a fenced area without any opportunity to escape.

Humane Society International is calling on South African citizens to oppose the callous killing of wildlife for entertainment by signing a pledge to end trophy hunting.
