Solar Terms: 8 things you may not know about Clear and

The traditional Chinese lunar calendar divides the year into 24 solar terms. Clear and Bright (Chinese), the 5th solar term, starts this year on Apr 5 and ends on Apr 20.

Of all the 24 solar terms, Clear and Bright is the only one whose first day is also a traditional Chinese festival, Qingming Festival or T

omb-Sweeping Day. The words “clear” and “bright” describe the weather during this period. Temperatures b

egin to rise and rainfall increases, making it a crucial time for plowing and sowing in the spring.

Here are 8 things you may not know about Clear and Bright.

lear and Bright is a period in which Chinese people honor nature and the ancestors of the Chine

se nation. The worship of nature and ancestors can be traced to ancient times, and still matters a lot in modern society.

Cleaning the tombs and paying respect to the dead with offerings are the two important practices to r

emember late relatives. Weeds around the tomb are cleared away and fresh soil is added to show care for the dead.

The dead person’s favorite food, wine and chopsticks are offered on their tombs, along with paper mo

ney. These sacrifices are all burned in the hope that the deceased will not lack food and money in the afterlife.

Apple, in rare reversal, pulls plug on wireless charging mat

Apple Inc on Friday said it is canceling the AirPower wireless charging mat that the company anno

unced in 2017 on the same day as its iPhone X, a rare public retreat for the gadget maker known for splashy product launches.

The mat was intended to wirelessly charge up to three Apple products at once, such as an iPhone, Apple Watch and AirPods wireless headphones.

While wireless charging has spread through the gadget industry, cha

rging three devices at once with higher wattage “fast charging” has proved challenging. Fur

niture seller Ikea, for example, sells a $60 matt that can handle three phones but it only features slower 5-watt charging.

In a statement, Apple said that it had concluded that its AirPower mat “will not achieve our high standards.”

“We apologize to those customers who were looking forward to this l

aunch,” Dan Riccio, Apple’s senior vice president of Hardware Engineering, said in the state

ment. “We continue to believe that the future is wireless and are committed to push the wireless experience forward.”

That’s why, for China, the return of relics is not only of cultu

 cultural significance but also a matter related to national pride. And for the families that

owned them and lost them to foreign pillagers, the antiques are related to their family heritage.

The mission of recovering lost Chinese cultural relics will continue. In the past few years, pa

triotic Chinese businesspeople overseas have been buying relics that have been auctioned and d

onated them to national museums of the motherland. That’s a good move, but not the best solution.

The return of 796 cultural relics sets a good example because the Carabinieri Art Squad, an Italian police unit respons

ible for combating cultural relics-related crimes, has done a good job in recovering the relics. It is to be hoped th

at other countries and regions will learn from their example and help return Chinese cultural relics.
