'Along the River During the Qingming Festival' is a painting by the Song dynasty artist Zhang Zeduan (1085-1145). It captures the daily life of people and the landscape of the Northern Song capital, Bianjing, today's Kaifeng. The theme is said to celebrate the festive spirit and worldly commotion at the Qingming Festival, rather than the holiday's ceremonial aspects, such as tomb sweeping and prayers.

. Successive scenes reveal the lifestyle of all levels of the society from rich to poor as well as different economic activities in rural areas and the city, and offer glimpses of period clothing and architecture. The scroll is 25.5 centimetres (10.0 inches) in height and 5.25 meters (5.74 yards) long. In its length there are 814 humans (of whom only 20 are women), 28 boats, 60 animals, 30 buildings, 20 vehicles, 8 sedan chairs, and 170 trees. The countryside and the densely populated city are the two main sections in the picture, with the river meandering through the entire length.

. The original painting is celebrated as the most celebrated work of art from the Song dynasty.

A pie represents 'Chine' (French for China) and is being divided between caricatures of Queen Victoria of the United Kingdom, William II of Germany (who is squabbling with Queen Victoria over a borderland piece, whilst thrusting a knife into the pie to signify aggressive German intentions), Nicholas II of Russia, who is eyeing a particular piece, the French Marianne (who is diplomatically shown as not participating in the carving, and is depicted as close to Nicholas II, as a reminder of the Franco-Russian Alliance), and the Meiji Emperor of Japan, carefully contemplating which pieces to take.

. A stereotypical Qing official throws up his hands to try and stop them, but is powerless. It is meant to be a figurative representation of the Imperialist tendencies of these nations towards China during the decade.

The Atlantic slave trade or transatlantic slave trade took place across the Atlantic Ocean from the 16th through to the 19th centuries. The vast majority of those enslaved that were transported to the New World, many on the triangular trade route and its Middle Passage, were West Africans from the central and western parts of the continent sold by western Africans to western European slave traders, or by direct European capture to the Americas.

The numbers were so great that Africans who came by way of the slave trade became the most numerous Old World immigrants in both North and South America before the late 18th century. Far more slaves were taken to South America than to the north. The South Atlantic economic system centered on producing commodity crops, and making goods and clothing to sell in Europe, and increasing the numbers of African slaves brought to the New World.

Yin Hong was a character from the classic Ming Dynasty novel 'Fengshen Yanyi'. Yin Hong was one of the sons of cruel King Zhou of Shang, and therefore a crown prince. For killing Jiang Huan to avenge the death of their mother, he and his brother Yin Jiao were sentenced to execution, and was only saved when the passing immortal sages Guangchengzi and Chijingzi saw what was happening and summoned a tornado to sow confusion while they stole the princes, taking them as their students. Guangchenzi took Yin Jao while Chijingzi took Yin Hong.

After several decades of studying and learning, Yin Hong was deemed strong enough to re-enter the world and contribute. Chijingzi armed and armoured his disciple, and asked him to help the sage Jiang Ziya and King Wu of Zhou fight the tyranny of the Shang Dynasty. However, as he was headed towards King Wu's army, Yin Hong was confronted by a man named Shen Gongbao, who persuaded Yin Hong to aid his father King Zhou instead, protecting the Shang Dynasty from the usurpers.

Yin Hong was swayed by Sheng Gongbao's words and began fighting against King Wu's army alongside his brother, defying their teachers' wishes. He eventually met his end when Chijingzi himself entered the field of battle to rectify his mistake, killing Yin Hong. Yin Hong would later be deified as a god of grain.

The story is repeated, with variations, in the Quran.

The earliest mention of Kashgar occurs when a Chinese Han Dynasty (206 BCE â€" 220 CE) envoy traveled the Northern Silk Road to explore lands to the west.

Another early mention of Kashgar is during the Former Han (also known as the Western Han Dynasty), when in 76 BCE the Chinese conquered the Xiongnu, Yutian (Khotan), Sulei (Kashgar), and a group of states in the Tarim basin almost up to the foot of the Tian Shan mountains.

Ptolemy spoke of Scythia beyond the Imaus, which is in a 'Kasia Regio', probably exhibiting the name from which Kashgar is formed.

The country’s people practised Zoroastrianism and Buddhism before the coming of Islam. The celebrated Old Uighur prince Sultan Satuq Bughra Khan converted to Islam late in the 10th century and his Uighur kingdom lasted until 1120 but was distracted by complicated dynastic struggles.

The Uighurs employed an alphabet based upon the Syriac and borrowed from the Nestorian, but after converting to Islam widely used also an Arabic script. They spoke a dialect of Turkic preserved in the Kudatku Bilik, a moral treatise composed in 1065.

Su Quanzhong was a character from the classic Ming Dynasty novel 'Fengshen Yanyi'. The son of Marquis Su Hu of Jizhou and brother to Su Daji, later to become the possessed concubine of King Zhou of Shang, Su Quangzhong was a high-ranking official of the Shang Dynasty. When his father defied King Zhou by refusing to hand over his daughter and therefore sully his honour, a great coalition was formed to defeat the 'rebel' Su Hu.

Su Quanzhong led his father's forces against the invading Shang army, becoming renowned as a fierce protector of Ji province. When Chong Houhu, commander of the coalition, arrived with his army, Su Quanzhong rode forth on his horse and immediately cut down Houhu's right-hand general Mei Wu, forcing Houhu to retreat. Su Quanzhong continued to harass Houhu's forces, making them retreat multiple times, striking down both of Houhu's head generals and wounding Houhu himself.

Su Quanzhong eventually met his match in Houhu's brother, Chong Heihu, who was a fierce warrior equipped with magical weapons as well as a close friend of Su's father. He fought with Heihu, but was defeated and captured by Heihu's magical gourd. After the coalition was ended by a single letter from Ji Chang (King Wen of Zhou), Su Quanzhong would pay his respects to the first man to have ever defeated him, Heihu. He would be appointed as the deity in Beidou Xinggong by the end of the novel.

Susanoo-no-Mikoto, more commonly known as just Susanoo or Susano-o, was a kami and god in the Shinto pantheon, master of storm and sea. He was born, alongside his siblings Amaterasu and Tsukuyomi, when the creator god Izanagi washed himself after his journey into the Yomi, the underworld. Susano was born from Izanagi washing his nose.

Susanoo was known as a hot-headed and violent man, and had a long-standing rivalry with his sister Amaterasu. After losing a chalenge to her, he raged and killed one of her attendants, destroyed her rice fields and hurled a flayed pony at her loom. For these actions, he was banished from Heaven.

Descending to the province of Izumo, he aided an elderly couple whose children had been devoured by the eight-headed dragon Yamato-no-Orochi. Saving their eighth daughter by turning her into a comb, and later marrying her, he fooled Orochi by setting out eight bowls of sake for it to drink and waiting till the dragon was drunk and asleep. He then cut off the dragon's heads, and retrieved a great sword from Orochi's tail, which he gifted to Amaterasu as a reconciliation gift.

Susanoo is enshrined at Kumano Taisha, in Shimane (formerly Izumo), and is still worshipped by Shintoists to this day.
