Comment on Effect of Taiji Versus Aerobic Exercise for Fibromyalgia by RUBY TSAO http://www.dontow.com/2019/03/effect-of-taiji-versus-aerobic-exercise-for-fibromyalgia/#comment-1409789 Sun, 24 Mar 2019 14:30:56 +0000 http://www.dontow.com/?p=5656#comment-1409789 Thanks for the report. Taiji may cause less pain and less injury as low impact exercise. Slow motion requiring sustained position is long term training for muscle strength. In Taiji “Horse Stance”, body weight is on the knees, equivalent of weight-lifting without the weight. Taiji is especially suitable for seniors to prevent knee pain and falls by building up strength and balance. Going through a series of 18 styles or more requires “discipline”, an important ingredient in long term success of any exercise program. Taiji is good exercise with or without fibromyalgia.

Comment on A Paradigm Shifting World-History Investigation by RUBY TSAO http://www.dontow.com/2019/03/a-paradigm-shifting-world-history-investigation/#comment-1409655 Sun, 24 Mar 2019 07:39:34 +0000 http://www.dontow.com/?p=5589#comment-1409655 This is excellent scholarship. Thanks to Dr. Lee for the efforts to clarify China’s cartographic and naval contributions in history. It stands to reason that China had the expertise prior to Zheng He’ expeditions predating Columbus voyage by 70– 80 years.

Comment on Sample Letters from Tong Zeng’s Collection of “10,000 Cries for Justice” by Don http://www.dontow.com/2018/03/sample-letters-from-tong-zengs-collection-of-10000-cries-for-justice/#comment-1369618 Sat, 12 Jan 2019 13:55:38 +0000 http://www.dontow.com/?p=5033#comment-1369618 Pamela,

Thanks for your comment.

Yes, Iris Chang’s best seller book “Nanking Massacre: The Rape of Nanking” (1997) helped tremendously to raise the knowledge of the world (especially the Western world about the Nanking Massacre).

We should all spread this knowledge so that history will not be forgotten and will not repeat itself.

Comment on A Set of Simple Time-Tested Health Exercises: The Eight Silk Brocade (八段錦) by Don http://www.dontow.com/2018/12/a-set-of-simple-time-tested-health-exercises-the-eight-silk-brocade-%e5%85%ab%e6%ae%b5%e9%8c%a6/#comment-1360013 Sat, 05 Jan 2019 05:01:22 +0000 http://www.dontow.com/?p=5444#comment-1360013 Tim,

Thanks, and sorry for the delayed response. Yes, this is a good video to follow and her set of exercises is good. As I mentioned in my article, because Eight Silk Brocade has been around for so long and so many people practice it, there are many variations of this set of exercises.

Her set has some similarities to the set described in my article, but there are also significant differences. For example, the closest of her set to Exercise III “Separating Heaven and Earth” described in my article is her Exercise 2. but there are significant differences. I especially like Exercise III because I think it is an excellent exercise for back problems, either to avoid back problems or reduce the severity of back problems.

Comment on Implications of Trump’s Presidency for the U.S. and the World: Part I by Don http://www.dontow.com/2018/12/implications-of-trumps-presidency-for-the-u-s-and-the-world/#comment-1359982 Sat, 05 Jan 2019 04:27:40 +0000 http://www.dontow.com/?p=5345#comment-1359982 Jim,

Thanks for your comments. Thanks also for catching 2 typos: rising sea level, instead of ricing sea level, and for the S&P 500 Index, I cut off the table and showed only 16 years (2003-2018) even though the quoted reference showed 25 years of data. Also, a few days ago, I did update the 12/31/2018 closing price for the S&P 500 Index, as you had also indicated.

However, the phrase “assessing our presidential candidates or our President” is correct, because it refers to the situation when people are candidates for the president and the situation when one of them has become the president.

Comment on Implications of Trump’s Presidency for the U.S. and the World: Part II by Jim Raevis http://www.dontow.com/2018/12/implications-of-trumps-presidency-for-the-u-s-and-world-part-ii/#comment-1351690 Sun, 30 Dec 2018 17:59:14 +0000 http://www.dontow.com/?p=5486#comment-1351690 Hey Don, all of the above continues to scare me…mainly for my children. I regularly referenced the national debt while working in the DOD…my colleagues didn’t like that. I’m also unsure as to what these “tax cuts” means to me with the SALT limitation. I won’t be surprised if I’ll incur a higher tax burden in 2018 even though there have been “cuts”. One hidden surprise that everyone will discover is that the fee you pay to have a professional tax preparer do you taxes…well, it’s no longer deductible…and many of us need a tax preparer because the IRS has created many forms that mere mortals simply don’t understand.
