Ever wondered what to do about the problem of dog mess? Here is a novel idea from Taiwan.

A Taiwanese city is offering prizes to dog owners who clean up after their pets and provide evidence of their actions.

New Taipei City council says say that more than 4,000 dog owners have collected over 14,500 bags of poo, receiving a lottery ticket per bag.

However some people receiving the tickets do not appear to own a dog.

Taiwan has its own disputes with its neighbours in the volatile South China Sea. A dispute over territorial waters with the Philippines has resulted in a Taiwanese fisherman being killed. Qi is the statistic in the link claiming 90% of the Taiwanese population can claim mixed Chinese/Aboriginal ancestry.

Here are some QI facts about Taiwan.

The largest city is New Taipei which is a separate entity to the capital Taipei.

Thirteen aboriginal languages survive from the remnant native population. It is estimated that there were once twice as many.

DNA research points to the ancient Taiwanese as the probable ancestors of the people who were to colonise the Pacific.

And here's another one:

The capital of Taiwan is Nanjing on mainland China. This is recognised by the Taiwanese government as the official capital of the island whilst Taipei is merely its temporary capital. Whereas the PRC considers Taiwan as merely a renegade province, Taiwan recognises that the communists rule the mainland whilst the Taiwanese government rules Taiwan.
