188. From Confucius to the Great Wall of China

On June 19, 2010, Dr. Dave Wang, invited by Kokushikan University  in Tokyo, Japan, delivered his speech, From Confucius to the Great Wall: Chinese Cultural Influence on Colonial North America. It was well received. Many professors and graduate students came to the lecture. They asked so many challenging questions. The university also asked Dr. Dave Wang to write a paper for the university's magazine on Asian studies.

You can find the information on his speech from this link. The University published his speech on its website. You can access it from this link.

187. Still Available in Northeast Times

I have found that the information on the exhibition that Dr. Dave Wang created to celebrate the 300th anniversary of Benjamin Franklin's birth in 2006 is still available in Northeast Times in the Internet World.

It tells its readers that The Hollis branch of Queens Borough Public Library, in Hollis, N.Y., will present a Benjamin Franklin and China exhibit through June. There you can discover how Franklin used Confucius’ moral philosophy and borrowed from Chinese technologies.
