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.”

Talent, research capabilities needed in scientific fields

About a century ago, Chen Duxiu, one of the founders of the Comm

unist Party of China, called for the people to use science to save the country from the dark ages. Scie

nce was also widely encouraged during the May Fourth Movement in 1919, a campaign that opposed im

perialism and feudalism, thus changing the trajectory of contemporary Chinese history.

Despite its relatively late introduction, modern science has taken root, flourished and intertwined with the fate of th

is ancient nation. Scientific knowledge, along with the attitude, methods, ideas and spirit, are not only aff

ecting people’s day-to-day decisions, but are also driving the socioeconomic development of China and the world.

These facts will be more apparent this year as we celebrate the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of

China. The Chinese Academy of Sciences will also celebrate its 70th birthday in November.

South Korea’s plastic problem is a literal trash Uiseong, a pictu

  ue South Korean farming county, was a backwater until homegrown heroes the Garlic Girl

s became breakout stars and curling silver medalists at last year’s Pyeongchang Winter Olympics.

  In recent months the spotlight has again fallen on Uiseong for a far less glorious rea

son: a smoldering mountain of garbage which highlights the trash crisis in the densely populated nation.

  Among the rice paddies and beside the Nakdong River in the

country’s east, a horseshoe-shaped, 170,000-ton heap of trash is spontaneously combusting, spe

wing out plumes of smoke and the nose-scorching, chemical stench of burning plastic.

  On a cold February morning, six workers wearing grimy overalls a

nd gas masks clamber over the 50 feet-tall (15 meters) man-made hill, dousing the smo

ke with fire hoses. But as soon as one smoldering spot is extinguished, another flares up.

ijing Jiangong Hospital was once an enterprise-owned hospital

Statistics from Beijing-headquartered think tank iyiou.com revealed that by last September, there were a total of 20,011 private hosp

itals in China, accounting for nearly half of the country’s medical institutions. According to Hao Deming, exec

utive vice-president and secretary-general of the Chinese Nongovernment Medical Institutions Association, starting from

2013, the number of China’s private hospitals has grown at an annual rate of 15 percent.

Capital also favors private hospitals. “The number of private hospitals in China accounts f

or half of the total, and is growing at a much higher rate than the number of public hospitals. The invest

ment from the capital market into the sector is an unprecedented blockbuster expansion,” said Xia Xia

oyan, a partner and managing director of Boston Consulting Group, during an interview with pppod.net.

The report from BCG showed that since 2012, investment in medical in

stitutions has grown at a compound annual growth rate of 80 percent, realizing a fiftyfold incr

ease from 2012 to 2018. Between 2015 and 2016 a record number of deals took place.

From the beginning of 2017 to May 2018, China’s private healthcare institutions had attracted roughly 11 billion yuan of inve

stment, and each deal surpassed 200 million yuan, according to the report issued by iyiou.com.
