I just started learning this set in my bagua classes.  I have learned the first 4 palms of the set.  I hope the learn the rest of the palms for this form within the next 2 weeks.

Here is a demonstration of the 64 Palms form by Cheng Style Baguazhang Grandmaster Sun Zhijun.

Hello everyone!  My is Allen and I've been studying Chen Style Baguazhang for about 3 months now.  My Sifu is Master Zhen Kang Sun, who studied under Grandmaster Sun Zhijun.  I love the flow, the grace, and the hidden power of Bagua.  It is absolutely beautiful to watch, but within its beauty is a very effective martial art.  I am very happy and honored to be studying this martial art.

So the government plans on replacing Alexander Hamilton as the face of the $10 bill.  By 2020, a famous woman will be the face of the new $10 dollar bill.

My question is: Why are we replacing Hamilton on the $10 bill?  The person they should be replacing is Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill.  Of all the people whose faces are on our currency, Andrew Jackson is the least deserving.  He was the President who enacted the Indian Removal Act of 1830, which led to the tragedy we know as the Trail of Tears.  He was the one who was responsible for forcing Native Americans, from their homes to make that horrid march from what we know as the Deep South all the way to Oklahoma.  It is said that nearly 1/4 those who made that journey died.

I am all for putting a famous woman as the face of one of our currency bills, but they should be replacing Andrew Jackson, not Alexander Hamilton.

This looks like a nice telescope.

So I try to spend one clear night out in the US East Coast in weeks observing the planet Jupiter. Instead, I have to deal with my neighbors ridiculous sensor light flashing on and off repeatedly every time a car passes by.  The amount of illumination that sensor light gives off is absurd.  Viewing Jupiter through my telescope was impossible.

Truly enlightening.  How can we be the greatest country if we rank so low in such a large amount of categories?  Being #1 in in incarcerated citizens is nothing to cheer.  Perhaps it is time for America to wake up, stop settling for the status quo, get some ambition, and strive to be better.
