Next up, learning to play
the bagpipes is never easy.
It takes a lot of
patience and practice,
but for 10-year-old Guy
it's been even harder.
He was born with one hand
but it's been a dream of his
to learn to play the instrument.
But now his dream has come true
after a music teacher invented
the world's first one
handed digital bagpipe.
I've got five fingers,
but some are very small.
I've always felt special with it.
Not many people your age
want to learn to play the bagpipes.
What made you so interested
in that instrument?
My mum's Scottish so when we go up
there, we see my uncle Neil,
and he plays the bagpipes.
So I've seen them before.
It's not that difficult,
and you can just learn the scales.
And once you've got the notes
and the sound, you can
start learning songs.
Finally, shoppers in Taiwan
are getting in a frenzy over...
It's because of rumours that it's
going to get more expensive.
People have been rushing to stock up

as they can get their hands on.
Shops are asking people not
to panic, but shelves
are being emptied with buyers
worried about being caught short.
That's it for this morning.
