The Lantern Festival arrives on the first full moon of the Chinese calendar and marks the last day of traditional Chinese New Year celebrations. The lanterns are meant to ward off evil spirits and bring families closer together to watch as they flood the streets. It is one of the most celebrated events of the year, with carnivals featuring impressive lantern displays, lion and dragon dances, artistic performances and of course, tangyuan, a soupy dumpling staple.
During the festival, children carry lanterns riddled with riddles and sayings to temples at night, a tradition that traces back 2,000 years to the beginning of the Eastern Han Dynasty. The lanterns symbolize a letting go of one’s past self and renewal in the new year.
The Lantern Festival arrives on the first full moon of the Chinese calendar and marks the last day of traditional Chinese New Year celebrations. The lanterns are meant to ward off evil spirits and bring families closer together to watch as they flood the streets. Taiwan’s most celebrated Lantern Festival features lanterns that play their own theme music and tower over 10 meters tall, with many featuring ornate designs that correspond with the signs of the zodiac.
Taiwan began recognizing this Chinese festival in 1990 as an effort to spread the traditional folklore to the masses. One of the most important events that takes place on this evening is the Fengpao ceremony, where thousands of firecrackers are burned and hung in the Wumiao Temple. The lantern event and the fire ceremony together are known as “Fireworks in the south, sky lanterns in the north” and are meant to call in wishes for the new year.

Nissan 4x4s keep splitting in half but they won’t issue recall
Nissan drivers have demanded a recall of the UK’s bestselling 4 x 4 pick-up after it emerged that some of the trucks have snapped in half.

Scores of faulty trucks have been returned following inspections, but the Japanese car firm has been accused of keeping the problem ‘under wraps’.
Richy Holmes, 50, said he was towing a caravan to Scotland when the chassis on his vehichle snapped.
He was driving with his pregnant wife and daughter at the time.
To put pressure on the firm, Richy started the Nissan Navara Snapped Chassis Facebook group, which now has more than 15,000 members.

Carmen Miranda is a rare example of a triple threat: talented at acting, singing, and dancing. Born in Portugal and raised in Brazil, Miranda took to the performing arts at a young age. Her father's love of opera and her mother's support led her to pursue a career in show business. Inspired by baianas, Afro-Brazilian fruit vendors, Miranda donned a "fruit hat" when she performed. It would become her signature as her star soared, first in Brazil and then, worldwide.
Miranda’s big break happened following her performance at the National Institute of Music. She landed an audition at a recording studio where she was immediately signed to put out a single. Miranda’s first album was released in 1929, and was immensely popular among Brazilians. Her performing style helped samba gain respect and a place in the Brazilian (and later, the world) spotlight.
By the time she moved to the United States in 1939, Miranda was a national star in Brazil and had the power to ensure her band could travel with her. Hollywood's famous Garuman's Chinese Theatre invited her to leave her hand prints in the cement in 1941, the first Latin American to do so.
Today, we celebrate Carmen Miranda on what would be her 108th birthday.

Aletta Jacobs was a woman of many firsts. Growing up in the Netherlands in the 1800s, she watched the profound impact her father, a doctor, had on his patients’ lives. She longed to do the same, but she knew it wouldn’t be easy – no Dutch woman had ever studied medicine. Jacobs didn’t let that stop her.
Since girls weren’t permitted to attend high school, Jacobs pursued her studies independently and went on to pass the assistant chemist exam in 1870. That was as far as most women could go at the time, but Jacobs was determined to go further. So she petitioned and was granted permission to attend classes at the University of Groningen in 1871. She graduated with a medical degree in 1879, becoming the first female physician in the Netherlands.
During her time as a doctor, she again focused on achieving progress for women. Despite strong opposition from her colleagues, she worked to make contraceptives more widely available and established the world’s first birth control clinic. She also became largely involved in the women’s suffrage movement, leaving her medical practice in 1903 to focus on winning the right to vote. She helped do just that in 1919, the same year she co-founded the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom.
Today, on what would’ve been Jacobs’ 163rd birthday, we celebrate all that she did to pave the way for those who came after her.
