2020 Chinese New Year, Free Event At ‘Confucius Institute’, UNH (Durham, NH) — Terracotta Warriors & Qin Bamboo Slips.
4-minute BBC documentary if you are not familiar with this
Terracotta Warriors — the greatest archaeological discovery of the 20th century.
The 2020 iteration of the now yearly event being presented by my friends at the UNH ‘Confucius Institute‘.
As ever it is a FREE event, open to the public. We have gone to these nearly every year. Without fail they are extremely good and a great bunch of people. Very friendly. Very hospitable.
This should be GOOD, very good. The UNH Confucius Institute specializes in EXCELLENCE. They never disappoint. That is part of their ethos and it is impressive.
Start at around the 3 minute mark and watch.
I hope NOT. I like him. He might be a Republican but I think he is an honest, decent, conscientious man. I want him to be as able as he can be.
My mother as well as a number of other relatives have had Parkinson’s. Also a couple of folks that I have known.
I noticed his hand shaking RIGHT AWAY. It was hard to miss.
Yes, it could have been just nerves. Momentous occasion. He knew the world was watching. But, this is nothing new to him — not now. He was sworn in two presidents. He is on TV quite a bit.
The shaking continued. Possibly even got worse.
Parkinson’s is purely ‘mechanical’. It doesn’t, at least at first, impair one’s cognitive powers. So, that is good.
But, I am hoping that I am wrong. I really do like him.
