A very good writer on so many counts

Filed under: Be careful who you listen to!, Uncategorized — doctordilday @ 2:23 pm

I read an article in today’s Seattle Times written by Danny Westneat; I was impressed with how well written it was and, in particular, how I could not be sure where he stood on the issues raised: he reported the news without jamming his view down my throat (I had a sense that I might disagree with him on most things, but still could not stop reading:-).

Intrigued, I then searched who he is and what else he has written. Here is a great example. You will be able to tell why I chose this article amount all the others when you read it through to the end.

Course Description:

Tai Chi is an ancient Chinese system of exercise, and self-defense, based on the principles of stillness overcoming motion, and softness overcoming hardness. It teaches (1) how to breath, so you can relax and manage stress, (2) how to align yourself to relate to gravity and other forces, (3) how to move in a way that is safe and strong, and (4) how to be sensitive and aware. This Class will focus on teaching Tai Chi principles by learning part of the Long Round Hand Form, and three basic, foundational, Push Hands drills.

Course Objectives:

  1. Learn the beginning of the Long Round Hand Form (Styles 1- 17)
  2. Demonstrate knowledge of basic Tai Chi terminology
  3. Describe and demonstrate both Front and Back Stance
  4. Describe and demonstrate elementary Push Hands (e.g., 7-Star Step)
  5. Learn the 5 Components or “Five Pillars” of Tai Chi

Clothing: Street clothes are fine, loose enough so that you can move, or gym clothes. Flat-soled shoes are preferred for balance purposes. Wear shoes that will not mark up the floor.

Class Policies:

  1. Arrive on time
  2. Clean is good – so is trimmed nails and little or no jewelry
  3. Do not eat or drink too much before class, but do not come on an empty stomach
  4. Stay hydrated

Course Outline:

  1. Warm ups

  3. Beginning of the Long Round Hand Form
  4. Push Hands: Fixed Step (Single Hand & 4 Directions) and 7-Star Moving Step
  5. Discuss functional aspects of Tai Chi (e.g., self-defense applications, stress management)

Evaluation:

  1. Letter grades are used
  2. ATTENDANCE is required
  3. If you are late, or absent unexcused, your grade will be lowered:

 

9- 10             classes attended = A

8                   classes attended = B

6-7                classes attended = C

Less than 6 classes attended = FAILING Grade!!!

 

 

A PASS- FAIL formatted make-up test will be offered on week 8 or 9, which will raise your Grade one level.

Eating Timing and Skin Cancer: I wish I had known this earlier!

Of course the research on humans is yet to be done, but if you are a mouse – and maybe if you are a human – it matters whether you violate the 8-to-8 Rule, it terms of skin cancer risk.

It is precisely because we have such a feeble grasp of the nature of nature that we really should pay attention to what we do know…
