We have found unity during the COVID-19 pandemic: we as human beings are all vulnerable.

The coronavirus outbreak has revealed how critical it is for all of us to find common ground in today’s polarized world.

There has been a dramatic difference in the success of various countries in fighting this virus. In South Korea, the leaders assembled quickly, resolved their differences, implemented essential measures and effectively controlled the infection.

n August 2015, we had the first stock market correction (defined as a 10 percent decline from recent peaks) in more than four years. Yet barely four months later, the U.S. is already experiencing another one. Though the recent oil price drop did contribute to the most recent correction, the real culprit for both corrections is the same — China. As the president of the Tennessee Chinese Chamber of Commerce, I would like to discuss the trends of the Chinese economy in recent decades, and the global impact of its recent slowdown, particularly in the U.S.

America faces many major challenges today, among them jobs, health care and education. In order to strengthen our nation, we have to improve in these areas particularly in education. At the time of the celebration of Chinese New Year (this is the "Year of the Sheep"), I am reminded of what a great job Asian-Americans have been doing in educating their children, and how the rest of America can learn from them.

Compared with most other ethnic groups, Asian-Americans have achieved remarkable success in educating their children in this country. For example, the average ACT score of Asian-American students is higher than all other ethnic groups, and Asian-Americans have enjoyed the preponderance of representation in America's top universities, especially when compared with the low percentage of Asian-Americans in the U.S. population.

Say the name Dr. Ming Wang, and lots of folks scoff. Why is an eye surgeon doing ballroom dancing in those commercials, the ones that air over and over and over again?

It all kinda feels showy, right? Ballroom dancers never perform eye surgeries in their commercials.
