Although it appeared to be a sports academy, the Datong school was actually a military training camp for revolutionaries that Xu and Qiu Jin had recruited. Even while she worked towards the revolutionary cause, Qiu Jin did not forget China’s women. She played an important role in attempting to recruit and train more female revolutionaries. […]

Comment on Paradoxes of Quantum Physics, Bell’s Theorem, and What Do Experiments Tell Us by Don https://www.dontow.com/2020/12/paradoxes-of-quantum-physics-bells-theorem-and-experimental-confirmation/#comment-1734277 Sun, 06 Dec 2020 15:31:52 +0000 http://www.dontow.com/?p=6648#comment-1734277 Tim,

Thanks for the article. I am aware of this work. It is an interesting idea and proposal. Experiments in the last 40+ years have repeatedly shown that Quantum Theory’s experimental predictions are correct, and Local Hidden Variable Theories’ experimental predictions are wrong. However, as my article also pointed out “physicists are still not completely satisfied with QT, especially in its explanation of what is happening in nature, and not just on whether it can predict accurately the results of measurements.”

For example, some people have speculated that we need to take consciousness into account in order to understand what is happening in nature. As mentioned in your referenced article, the first person to suggest that was Eugene Wigner, the 1993 Nobel Physics Laureate, based on some earlier idea by John von Neumann. One of the subsequent main advocates is Henry Stapp, another physicist from UC Berkeley (see, e.g., https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henry_Stapp), who also made the comment that Bell’s Theorem is “the most profound discovery of science.”

The recent work from the Center for Quantum Dynamics at Griffith University in Australia mentioned in your referenced article is a more detailed proposal along this line using quantum computers as part of an experiment. It is an interesting proposal and depending on the outcomes of future experiments similar to this, it could shed important information on what is happening in nature and how we explain what is happening in nature, besides predicting accurately the results of experiments.

Comment on Criteria for Choosing an Exercise for Health by RUBY Tsao https://www.dontow.com/2020/12/criteria-for-choosing-an-exercise-for-health/#comment-1732177 Wed, 02 Dec 2020 23:33:08 +0000 http://www.dontow.com/?p=6762#comment-1732177 Enjoyed your articles.
1. Good idea to recreate events, but how?
2. Taichi is good exercise at any age, good for the body, mind and soul. And it’s free. Thanks.

Comment on Criteria for Choosing an Exercise for Health by Corinne Tan https://www.dontow.com/2020/12/criteria-for-choosing-an-exercise-for-health/#comment-1731334 Tue, 01 Dec 2020 15:47:15 +0000 http://www.dontow.com/?p=6762#comment-1731334 Hello Don,
I typed a reply and it disappeared so this is a repeat. I enjoy reading your logs. We just got our electricity back at 3 am this morning after 12 hours of darkness. I tried doing tai chi in the dark and discovered that my muscle memory didn’t carry over to the kicks. I concluded that I need some light to get that balance.
CI enjoyed your physics article.
Take care.
Best,
Corinne

Comment on Mindfulness, Children’s Social and Emotional Health, and School Initiative by Sharon Dolled https://www.dontow.com/2020/09/mindfulness-childrens-social-and-emotional-health-and-school-initiative/#comment-1683740 Fri, 04 Sep 2020 23:25:34 +0000 http://www.dontow.com/?p=6557#comment-1683740 I am now retired after working as a special education teacher for many years. I wish I knew enough of Taiji and its effects on mindfulness while I was teaching. A small break sometimes helps the students.

Comment on Diao Yu Tai Student Movement: Recollection 50 Years Later by Sharon Dolled https://www.dontow.com/2020/09/diao-yu-tai-student-movement-recollection-50-years-later/#comment-1683738 Fri, 04 Sep 2020 23:22:37 +0000 http://www.dontow.com/?p=6506#comment-1683738 Well written. I believe that with our current president always being anti-China, it will hurt any current hopes to get back those islands. I resent when I still hear him call the Covid virus the Chinese virus.

Comment on A Letter to Mr. Biden and His Presidential Campaign Strategy Team by Pastor Paul L. Chang https://www.dontow.com/2020/06/a-letter-to-mr-biden-and-his-presidential-campaign-strategy-team/#comment-1682813 Wed, 02 Sep 2020 16:19:58 +0000 http://www.dontow.com/?p=6379#comment-1682813 I have been in the states for more than 40 years. Since 1984 I always voted our presidents. It seems that it’s a choice of 2 evils.
Int’l situations are changing so quick. I’d make my vote this time who can save democracy in the world. I am not from HK. But HK is a test water showing how Am will handle Sino-Am competition in the Far East. Being an immigrant from ROC (Taiwan), I always watch closely who can protect Taiwan and Far East from the newly rising communist China under Xi Jinping.

So my understand will be different from the 2020 June letter by my good friend. How Trump handle HK crisis will have heavy weight of my Nov vote.

Paul

It will be a good reference for the future generations.
