Hello everybody,

I would like to wish everyone a happy and safe New Year! If your partying on New Years eve, leave your car at home, it can be a dangerous time to drive. Take care, sincerely,

To wingchunners;

As you sing auld lang syne
remember the center line
Lose not your reason
The plum blossom blooms
in every season!

The best and cheers!

I think you should have a serious talk with your student, Old Jong. He's misbehaving himself on the forum.

Merry New Year.

My Sifu has more than his share of problems just teaching me Kung Fu so teaching me how to behave myself is not in his intentions.(Did I say that in only one sentence?);)
I wish you a happy new year W.H.!...Sincerely! ;)

I would also like to wish everyone a happy new years, and hope that everyone's study of the fine art of wing chun is progressing nicely. I'd also like to happily let everyone know that my job situation has finally settled back down such that I'm back to sitting in front of a computer that is capable of internet access. So I should be able to return to participating in discussion/moderation on the board. Anyway, have a great New Year's everyone!

Traditionally in Asia we celebrate the Chinese New Year by visiting our relatives and wish them somethings good or lucky for the new year. We then tan our hand and the family relatives would "loy lau hoy sung" our wishes with lucky money envelopes. So now I wish my Si-hings, -dais, -baks, -etc of the WC family a very very happy new year. May you live long in peace and joy in the coming year. May you prosper in all your endeavours...Okay, now that I said them you may send those lucky envelopes to Ernie. I understand he's broke! Be good, my brothers and sisters! Ha! Ha!

As the time rapidly approaches the beginning of the 2005, I want to wish all of my martial arts brothers and sisters the very best for the New Year.

Whatever you train, regardless of style or lineage or whatever, I wish you the best in your training for the days ahead.

For all who are suffering in the world, from the recent Tsunamis in Asia or anywhere that there is man-made or natural disasters in our world. We are all connected. When one of suffers, we all suffer. I pray for peace and joy to fill your lives in the year ahead.

All the Best for 2005,

It's hard to wish Happy New Year afresh from so many raw images and painful memories of recent catastrophic destruction, death, and long suffering ... but the life that we live thereafter will be made stronger from newly woven strands of humanity, compassion, and love. And to these indestructible values, I like to give a toast together with friends and family to the New Year as I celebrate and cherish our life once more time afresh in the coming uncertain year.

Best Wishes,
PaulH

Well, we are almost done with the old 2007....

bop bop bop, ba da da dop ba dop, another one bites and another one bites and another one bites the dust...

2008 its literally just around the corner.

It goes by so fast, that sometimes I forget to sit and look back on the year and see all the good and bad things that took place.

Virginia Tech was horrible.

I started to learn Chen Taiji under my new teacher.

The whole Chris Benoit deal was very sad.

We are getting a good look at the rising state of environmental refugees, rising sea levels, people are opening their eyes at last...natural disasters are still very fresh in a lot of peoples minds....

In my neck of the woods we had some nice floods, displaced some families, but is getting cleaned up and they are moving on with their lives.

Cung Le got his 5th MMA win :p

I failed again at 2 relation ships :rolleyes:

KFM rehashed the same debates as last year, I think with the same results.

Life continues on...

Not sure if I have any resolutions this coming year, or what they will be...

Any notables to reflect on ?

Was asked (unofficially) to head up the Daidojuku in Canada, declined due to personal reasons.
Motivated by the movie 300 to go out with the guys semi-naked and sing YMCA.
Got a custom made, folded katana.
Re-kindled my interest in Kenjutsu and weapons work.

Forum wise:
The fiascos that were the internet challenges reminded me that one should never write cheques that our bodies can't cash, no matter the reason.
Joined KFMO and realized that the majority of TCMA are indeed, very, very strange people.
Confirmed all my sucpisions about WC/WT/VT, it was created by crazy chinese people to make white men do and say crazy things !
Confirmed my realization that people don't want the truth, they want THEIR TRUTH to be validated.
Made my peace with my past on Bullshido and realized that the ends never, ever justify the means, but its the means that lend credibility to the end.

Worldwise:
The world sucks ass, but its better now than it ever was, how sad is that ?

On a side note:
I would like to thank those that made me welcome here:
Ross and Parella - Lama pai is great, but I still prefer cheesecake !
Lucas, Bodhi, 7*, cjuck, 1bad65, and so many more I can't remember you all, guys like Victor and Jim and Phil and so many other WC nutriders that make all the WC threads so interesting to say the least.
Special mention to Dale and Terrence, you guys rock !
In a shallow, single minded, narrow sighted sort of way, but you are a great "anti-chi" to a TCMA forum.


and of course:

it is the year of the earth rat.

there are 5 elements, metal wood water fire and earth.

and 12 animals

so 5x12=60 years or yi jia zhi.

so if you live to be 60 years old, you already completed one jia zhi.

US will elect a new president.

China will host the summer olympics.

:)

there is a huge snow storm prevailing thruout southern China, all the infrastructure were snowed in, no bus, no train, milions of people are stranded in front of Guang Zhou train station. every one was hurrying home for the new year or spring festival.

the goods were slowed down in China, too,

meaning prices will be higher in US.

oops.

it is a fire rat year.

the whole family is supposed to clean the house, take showers and dress new or clean clothes.

the mom and sis will be cooking a lot of meals that would last a few days

so that the whole family will have a feast or big dinner on new year eve.

and then on new year day, there will be still a lot of left over.

we then go and greet every one including all relatives and neighbors and wish every one a happy new year.

the senior people will give away lucky money in red enevelops.

usually with new bills/notes, too.

dearest readers,

though the article has just been published, it has already been brought to my attention that i have made several errors in my reports about the way chinese people celebrate the new year here in china.. beyond that, a few of my chinese friends have gotten a little salty with me because they feel i speak about the chinese people in a discriminatory tone.

i hope that you will all look past my mistakes and tone and enjoy the article.

happy new year from wudang, china.

Year of the Rat? I say: bring it on! :D

I'm a horse, and one of the best years of my life was that of the Rat. True, I tend to have a little more trouble with my respiratory tract than usual, but that's to be expected. ;) I don't know why, but I always tend to fare well with Rats in general, and find the extra "challenges" to be rather thrilling.

One thing's for sure: this is going to be one fantastic year! :D

Gotta luv something called the 'super blood wolf moon' :D



A 'super blood wolf moon' and five eclipses are among 2019's major astronomy events (https://www.cnn.com/2018/12/27/world/five-eclipses-in-2019-and-super-blood-wolf-moon-trnd/index.html)
By Andrea Diaz, CNN

Updated 7:27 PM ET, Thu December 27, 2018

(CNN)Stargazers around the world, rejoice! The universe is about to give you an exciting astronomical year.

2019 is featuring five eclipses, a rare planet transit, one of the best meteor showers and a super blood wolf moon, but the fun doesn't stop there.
The new year will also bring three supermoons, a blue moon, multiple meteor showers, close approach by the moon and Jupiter and several rocket launches.
Although we would love to talk about all of the extraordinary occurrences, these are our top events to watch for in the sky in 2019:

January 6: Partial Solar Eclipse

https://cdn.cnn.com/cnnnext/dam/assets/170824164740-17-week-in-photos-0825-super-169.jpg

The new year kicks off with an impressive bang, and no, we don't mean fireworks.

In the first week of 2019, the moon will pass between the Earth and sun to stage a partial solar eclipse, NASA reports. Unfortunately, it will be visible only from northeast Asia and the North Pacific, as it will happen around 8:42 p.m. ET in the United States. Sky & Telescope predicts people will see 20% of the sun covered from Beijing, 30% from Tokyo and 37% from Vladivostok, Russia.

January 21: Super Blood Wolf Moon Eclipse

https://cdn.cnn.com/cnnnext/dam/assets/180131113036-cnnee-cafe-entrevista-superluna-azul-de-sangre-hernandez-oraa-00000006-super-169.jpg

For the first time in three years, the United States will be able to experience a total lunar eclipse. According to NASA, it will be one of the sky's "most dazzling shows," as the moon will be at its closest point to Earth, making the moon appear slightly bigger and a lot brighter, an event that is often referred to as a "supermoon."
But that's not the only thing that will make this eclipse stand out. Total lunar eclipses are often call "blood moons" because when the sun, Earth and moon align, the sunlight that passes through the Earth's atmosphere will appear to turn the moon red. And because lunar eclipses can occur only during a full moon -- and the first full moon in January is known as a "wolf moon" -- many are calling this spectacular event a "Super Blood Wolf Moon Eclipse."
At around 12:12 a.m. ET, people in North and South America, as well as those in western parts of Europe and Africa, will have front-row seats to this show.

May 6: Eta Aquarids Meteor Shower

https://cdn.cnn.com/cnnnext/dam/assets/171213134653-geminids-2017-new-zealand-super-169.jpg

Although we will see multiple meteor showers through the year, the Eta Aquarids meteor shower will be one of the best ones we will be able to witness, Sky & Telescope reports.
The Eta Aquarids was created by the dusty debris left behind by Halley's Comet, which flew by Earth in 1986, and although the famous comet won't be entering our solar system again until 2061, its remnants appear in our skies each year. This year is expected to put on quite a show.
According to NASA, we can expect a new moon two days before the meteor shower. The new moon will mean darker skies, which will make it possible for the human eye to appreciate the Eta Aquarids' dazzling show.
Although the Eta Aquarids will be active April 19 through May 26, its peak night will begin around 3 a.m. ET until dawn on May 6, and it's expected to produce as many as 20 to 40 meteors or more per hour.

July 2: Total Solar Eclipse

https://cdn.cnn.com/cnnnext/dam/assets/170821161222-21-eclipse-0821-comp-super-169.jpg

Were you able to witness the cool solar eclipse in North America in 2017? Well, now South Asia and South America will enjoy a day of no sun.
In the late afternoon of July 2, a total solar eclipse will occur over southern parts of Chile and Argentina, and parts of the South Pacific. The entire event will take place from 12:55 to 5:50 p.m. ET, with the maximum eclipse occurring at 3:23 p.m., Sky & Telescope reports.

July 16: Partial Lunar Eclipse

https://cdn.cnn.com/cnnnext/dam/assets/111210080817-lunar-eclipse-manila-horizontal-large-gallery.jpg

We begin 2019 with a partial solar eclipse, so it's only fair we also get a lunar one. Unfortunately, the United States will not be witnessing this one, either.
South America, Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia will be able to see the full moon dive about two-thirds of the way into the Earth's umbral shadow beginning at 9:31 p.m. UT , Sky & Telescope reports.

November 11: Rare Transit of Mercury

https://cdn.cnn.com/cnnnext/dam/assets/160509170743-mercury-transits-sun-orig-vstop-00004127-super-169.jpg

For the second time in two years, Mercury will make rare pass in front of the sun, NASA reports.
Mercury, the smallest planet in our solar system, passes between Earth and the sun about 13 times a century. The last trek took place in 2016, and for the first time in 10 years, the small planet was visible from Earth.
This year, the transit will begin at 7:34 a.m. ET and last around 5 1/2 hours. It will appear as a black dot across the the face of the sun, and stargazers will be able to see it with the help of a telescope and solar filters.
December 26: Annular Solar Eclipse

2019 closes on a high note with a rare and glorious "ring of fire."

https://cdn.cnn.com/cnnnext/dam/assets/160901125503-annular-eclipse-01-file-0901-super-169.jpg

The annular eclipse occurs when the circumference of the sun shines brightly from behind the moon. This year, the eclipse will begin right at dawn and pass over the Arabian Peninsula and arc over areas of South Asia.
We hope you enjoy these amazing events to the fullest, but remember, NEVER look at the sun during any type of solar eclipse, as it could cause damage to your eyes.

Fake NYE drone celebration?


Shanghai’s New Year’s Eve drone show spectacular didn’t actually happen (https://shanghai.ist/2020/01/02/shanghais-new-years-eve-drone-show-spectacular-didnt-actually-happen/?fbclid=IwAR3kruiBWuy7lmaDYhfb44yhlnSRJYbtxSZRtvDI aaNjH0afCkfFigx28JE)
What a way to kick off 2020!
by Alex Linder January 2, 2020 in News

https://i1.wp.com/shanghai.ist/wp-content/uploads/2020/01/nye-fake3.jpg?w=1024&ssl=1

Ever since 36 people were killed on the Bund as 2014 became 2015, New Year’s Eve festivities in Shanghai have been rather subdued.

Which is why we were rather surprised to see videos circulating around on Twitter of an apparent NYE light show spectacular on the Bund featuring nearly 2,000 drones. Those drones “took over the night sky” forming various shapes and patterns including a “running man” and a countdown clock right beside the Oriental Pearl Tower.

Video of the show has been shared by Chinese media outlets as well as international ones, including even the New York Times, impressing people around the globe with the innovative replacement to air pollution-causing fireworks.

A Reddit thread has been opened on the Shanghai subforum discussing this mysterious issue. One commenter points to a YouTube video that purportedly captured the New Year’s Eve festivities on the Bund.

In the video, a large crowd gathers on the Bund to watch with their cell phone cameras at ready as the clock strikes midnight. Observers get a bit excited as the lights go out in the Pudong skyscrapers… but are disappointed when those lights simply go back on a few seconds later with nothing actually happening.

You can watch the video below. The countdown starts at around 02:50:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h9j1cMEHfxM

When asked about the purported “drone show,” the person who shot the video responds: “No drones last night. Shame as it would have been cool to see. Not sure where the video came from but it appears to be the only video showing drones and has been reposted many times.”

On Weibo, video of the drones flying over the Huangpu River have caused similar confused comments. “Did I go to the wrong place? I was on the Bund!” writes one netizen. “There was really no celebration. This year’s NYE was cold and cheerless,” writes another.

Another video shows a large crowd of people counting down on the Bund with nothing happening as they reach zero. “New Year’s Eve is a Western holiday,” justifies one Weibo user.

https://i0.wp.com/shanghai.ist/wp-content/uploads/2020/01/fake-nye.jpg?resize=1320%2C736&ssl=1

However, a video posted onto Weibo does show the drone show over the Huangpu with the running man and 2020 spelled out. The video is dated December 29.

Our best, most charitable, explanation for this whole head-scratcher is that this was a practice run for a planned New Year’s Eve show that didn’t end up happening for some reason. Packaged footage of the show was always going to be from this practice run, in case something should go wrong on the big night.

And not even the show failing to take place ended up changing these plans.

Experts say two supermoons and one blue moon will light up the sky in 2020.

Sky watchers may have gotten a little spoiled in 2019, with three consecutive “supermoons” appearing during the first three months of the year. Will 2020 be as good?

Astronomy experts say two supermoons will be shining in the sky this year, and one month — October — will have two full moons, making the second a “blue moon” that will be glowing on Halloween. How’s that for an eerie treat?

Although blue moons occur once every two or three years, they are even more rare on Halloween, says AccuWeather meteorologist Brian Lada. “After the blue moon on Oct. 31, 2020, trick-or-treaters will need to wait until 2039 to see the next blue moon on Halloween,” he noted.

Experts say two supermoons and one blue moon will be shining in the sky in 2020.

What is a supermoon?

Supermoons are moons that become full when their orbits are closer than average to the Earth — making them appear to be slightly bigger and as much as 30% brighter than ordinary full moons.

Although the precise definition varies in the astronomy world — and some experts say the average star gazer won’t notice the size and brightness difference — most say a supermoon is a moon that tracks less than 223,000 miles from the Earth during its full phase. (Some say any full moon that is 226,000 miles or closer to the Earth can be classified as a supermoon, and others set the cutoff at the precise distance of 223,694 miles.)

Regardless of the exact definition, astronomy websites seem to agree that 2020 will feature at least two supermoons — one on March 9 and another on April 7. Worth marking down on your calendar: Space.com says the April full moon will be the biggest of the year, because it will be the closest one to our planet.

Don’t abbreviate 2020 when writing out the date (https://www.kron4.com/news/national/dont-abbreviate-2020-when-writing-out-the-date/?fbclid=IwAR2IbTL297y11DJ4IJSmG4UXjeF-vughdtdzia6KqQR_qnnz5oKKNqK5uAk)

SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) – New year, new date!

We’re only two days into 2020, but authorities have already issued a warning on why you shouldn’t be abbreviating the new year.

The warning: Don’t write the date 1/2/20.

Instead, write out 2020 in full, so it looks like this: 1/2/2020.

Authorities say the date is easily changeable and could ultimately be used against you.

“Example: If you just write 1/1/20, [a scammer] could easily change it to 1/1/2017 (for instance) and now your signature is on an incorrect document,” wrote auditor Dusty Rhodes.

When writing the date in 2020, write the year in its entirety. It could possibly protect you and prevent legal issues on paperwork. Example: If you just write 1/1/20, one could easily change it to 1/1/2017 (for instance) and now your signature is on an incorrect document.

A local police department also issued a similar warning on social media, saying the advice “should be considered when signing any legal or professional document.”

This is very sound advice and should be considered when signing any legal or professional document. It could potentially save you some trouble down the road.

This picture sums that up pretty well. So much so, that it was censored from being my zoom profile picture for a class...

A six-minute performance featuring Chinese kung fu and folk dances amazed thousands of people at New York City (NYC)'s Times Square Friday night by kicking off one of the most famous New Year's Eve countdowns around the globe.

Co-organized by the Sino-American Friendship Association and the Times Square Alliance, the performance brought traditional Chinese culture alive with flowing moves of Taijiquan blending firmness with softness, the magnificence of Shaolin Kung Fu and the charm of the fan dance.

"The martial art also looks like a dance, so it's cool," Victoria Christensen, 19, who had traveled from the U.S. state of Nebraska, said after watching the show.

"The martial art demonstration was great, and the dancing was my favorite," said Adela Magallanes, a reveler from the U.S. state of California, who had traveled to New York with her husband specifically for the New Year's Eve celebration.

Magallanes, a pharmacy technician who works with a lot of Chinese people and also a fan of Chinese desserts, said the cultural elements at the event help her understand more about China.

Chinese Consul General in New York Huang Ping, who made brief remarks before the show, wished everyone a happy new year both in English and Chinese.

Huang said that he sincerely invites the world to visit China and enjoy the splendid landscapes and rich culture.

A video on various LED screens atop the square displayed the scenery of China such as the Songshan Mountain, the archaeological site of Yin Xu, and Longmen Grottoes, in central China's Henan Province, as well as the Yellow River.

The hours-long event culminated in the 60-second countdown to the new year. Cheers and confetti filled the square when the traditional midnight drop of a multi-colored crystal ball signaled the start of 2022.

The history of New Year's Eve countdown at Times Square goes back more than 100 years.

After banning visitors from the event a year ago due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Big Apple rang in 2022 with a scaled-back bash as COVID-19 infections continue to surge in the city and around the nation. A 15,000-person cap on Friday night's event was well short of the 58,000 people who typically attend.

New York City reported a record number of almost 44,000 new confirmed cases on Thursday, according to New York state figures.

The current seven-day average daily increase of cases in the United States reached more than 316,000, a 293.4 percent spike from a month ago, fueled by a rapid spread of the Omicron variant, showed latest statistics from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

New York City's new mayor, Eric Adams, took the oath of office in Times Square early Saturday shortly after the ball dropped. He detailed a six-pillar plan for battling COVID-19 to start 2022 on Thursday.
