Share 65 years old man without legs is conquering the tallest peak of the world
2016-5-16 11:05
When I saw the news that a 65 years old man is conquering the tallest peak of the world, the Everest, I was shocked. His name is Xia Boyu from China. How much courage he has, and how much preparation including training, psychology and so on he must have, before he started to climb. We can’t imagine. He once was a member of the national mountaineering team in 1975. He had ever reached the altitude of 8600 meters. On the way to the ...

If you still doubt whether a person without hand can be a DJ, I can give you a definite answer “Yes”. Born in an ordinary family in a small town in France, Pascal Kleiman is the very person. Kleiman was lovely and risible when he was a little baby, but unfortunately he has no hands. It’s his mother’s fault.

  • Will dropping of population restrict China’s development? 2018-12-20 04:52

    The environment does matter, but I doubt the population of over 1 billion would drop to 0.1 billion so quickly. I habitually invite students to see these issues globally, and that way to habitually put comments about China's policies into a globally influential context, as is appropriate for a people who sit in the UN Security Council and who have significant gold reserves. A small % of people are concerned for the world facing water shortages. The global population has been doubling in half the time since the 1700s without any wars making a dent in the population explosion, and that is obviously the direct result of mismanaged banks making huge quantities of money freely available so people too easily live indoors and raise so many children. During the past few centuries, national policies were to increase populations because of fear of war with a neighbouring country. But in the past decade, we hear of military leaders in some countries starting to openly wish, online, that they could address threats to the environment as national threats to safety. However, my friends in philosophy point out that the evidence of natural disasters has not convinced some policy makers around the world. Of course, China is known for making green cities: a step toward sustainable urban development. Imagine a few countries in the world able to re-regulate banks and manage the economy to reduce the population explosion, manage international relations to live without fear of war, and so manage to lead international care for sustaining our environment. Walter Rothschild wrote a book listing extinct species of birds, so that our population explosion crowds many species out of life is known to bankers. I hope survival issues matter to policy makers in any country.
