This was indeed quite the movie. Extremely uplifting and inspiring. A GREAT MOVIE for toady. Shows you that there is still HOPE.

Saw it at the Concord (NH) ‘Regal 10‘. Had seen the trailer for it a few weeks back when we went to see ‘SING‘.

So glad that we went to see it.

Quite a few personal touches for I. Yes, there was a lot of IBM (including punched cards) that was from my era and which I could relate to THOUGH I think they portrayed IBM poorly and unfairly. IBM, in those days, even more than now, were ultra diligent about new system installations. There would have been site surveys on top of site surveys. No they would never be hampered by a door that was too small to permit the computer to be wheeled in. And then they had FORTRAN.

I knew two mathematicians who worked for NASA for the Apollo program — both were men, though one was black. He (the black one), who taught me physics in Paris 1968 – 1969, was the one that got me into computers! And they showed Yuri Gagarin — and I was very fortunate to have met him, in 1961, when he visited Ceylon. I was 7-years old.

Great movie. I wish all Americans could see it. It should be shown in schools.

I am so glad I got to see it. I will watch it again when it is available online.

Bernie Sanders’ Left Hand During CNN ‘Health Care’ Debate With Ted Cruz — Does He Have Parkinson’s?

Click to ENLARGE. Notice how he is holding his left hand. He did this ALL the time. The fingers kept on twitching. Use link below to access YouTube video.

I watched some of the debate. Was struck by two things, that were hard to escape:

       1/ Bernie looks noticeably older than he did prior to the election.

       2/ Something seems to be the matter with his LEFT HAND.

Whenever he was standing and not talking he was using his right hand to FIRMLY hold down his left. And the fingers of his left hand were twitching like crazy.

Yes, it could have been nerves. But, I can’t remember that from Bernie last year.

Reminded me of Bob Dole!

Is he getting Parkinson’s? Not sure.

Did a quick Google. Nothing.

Check out the video.

Hope he is OK. I actually like Bernie. Just didn’t want him as the candidate — BUT maybe he could have beaten the ” ” (name unsaid).
