Evolution in Process!? The Seven Year Old Boy with an IQ of 176

Evolution in Process!? The Seven Year Old Boy with an IQ of 176

Increasing reports of children with exceptional intelligence across races might be the new norm – God’s way of endowing humanity at a time when humanity is too dumbed down to find the answers to the problems we have created.  Let’s pray they do not get waylaid by repeating the patterns of our mistakes or force fed a diet of concepts that prevents them from developing their true potential.

 

Born to a Ph.D father and a mother with double master’s degree, Pranav Veera, has a photographic memory which enables him to do a lot even many adults cannot do. Indian-American born Pranav Veera from Ohio, USA was only six years-old he could recite the names of the U.S. presidents in the order they served in office. He was already able to say the alphabet backward and if you gave him a date back to 2000, and he would tell the day of the week.

His mother and grandmother, Shanta Sastri, work with him at home. They are guided by his focus and interests

“The way to get him interested is to associate something with numbers, like presidents’ birthdays … and when they came into office,” his mother said.

“Once we introduced him to the idea, he was asking more and more questions, so we created a spreadsheet for him in Excel, and he keeps on asking us to add more types of information to it, like sort them in the order that they came into office, sort them in the order when they were born,” she said.

In prekindergarten, his teacher had him do more challenging work, such as division and telling time. In kindergarten, his classmates are learning the alphabet and numbers up to 100. He’s counting over 1 million.

“He’s an amazing child,” said Marci Taylor, his teacher at McCormick Elementary in the Milford School District. “He knows so much, yet he’s probably more excited about learning than any child I’ve ever seen. He shakes with excitement.”

When asked what he wants to be when he grows up, Pranav says: ‘An astronaut.’

His parents tested him at Powers Educational Services in Hyde Park, Ohio.

“I said, ‘Let’s try it out, because he seems to do a lot of stuff kind of not quite normal for his age,’ ” his father said.

Tests revealed that Pranav has an IQ of 176. One person in 1 million has an IQ of 176 or above. Albert Einstein’s IQ was believed to be about 160. The average IQ is 100.

Pranav has even created a website called Puzzle Solutions

In the same period:

  1.  Fabiola Mann
    Age tested: 15
    IQ score: 162
    Fabiola, who was born in Goa, India, but currently lives in the U.K., recently begged her parents to pay the fee and let her take Mensa’s IQ test. The 15-year-old “has a purple belt in karate and is now taking tae kwon do in school,” says Forbes. She enjoys the classic genius hobby of chess, plays the piano and guitar, and can sing as well. “Yes, she is a human being and not an Indian cyborg.”
  2. Olivia Manning
    Age tested: 12
    IQ score: 162
    “Everyone knew 12-year-old British schoolgirl Olivia Manning was smart,” says Madeline Holler at Babble. A quick learner, she required only 24 hours to learn all her lines for a performance of Macbeth. But even she was “surprised when the results of an IQ test came back,” and she scored a 162 — higher than astrophysicist Stephen Hawking, Bill Gates, and yes, Einstein himself. Manning’s classmate Lauren Gannon achieved an astounding score as well, 152. Both girls have been admitted into Mensa, a club for the world’s smartypants.
  3. Jacob Barnett
    Age tested: 12
    IQ score: 170
    At age 2, Jacob Barnett was diagnosed with a mild form of Asperger’s. Turns out, he was just functioning at a higher level than everyone else. Jake, who appears to have an affinity for wearing caps backwards, is already taking advanced college math and astrophysics classes near his home in Indiana. As revealed during a 2011 appearance on Glenn Beck’s Fox News show, Jacob would like to become a professor at a high-ranking college and make high-level math textbooks easier to understand. In a video clip posted online, Jake gives a breezy lesson in advanced calculus to “help you overcome your math phobias.” He’s been taking advanced college math and astrophysics classes near his home in Indiana, but unfortunately has been courted by a high-powered research laboratory near Princeton University.

 

 4. Victoria Cowie
Age tested: 11
IQ score: 162
Victoria Cowie, another British schoolgirl, “isn’t glued to her studies,” says her mother. “She loves drama and music and plays football too.” But the young girl scored a whopping 162 on her IQ test in 2011, and has been offered scholarships from high-ranking secondary schools. Victoria’s mother Alison, 44, told the Daily Mail: “We are just a normal family, we
haven’t cracked the whip. When it comes down to it she’s still a child and we have always said she only does what she wants to do.”

When asked what she wants to be when she grows up, Victoria says she’d like to work with animals and become a vet.

Sisi’s Student Paper and Egypt’s New Regime*

Sisi’s Student Paper and Egypt’s New Regime*

The Washington-based Judicial Watch foundation released on August 8 an academic paper penned by Gen. Abdel Fattah al-Sisi during his 2006 studies at the US Army War College. The paper reveals the strongman’s views on democracy in the Middle East.

The document gives clues to the secretive personality of Egypt’s new de facto ruler.  The brigadier-general, who complained in March 2006 about “religious leaders (…) often sent to prison without trial, has since overseen the brutal killing of protesters since July 2013. Since the July 3 coup, Egyptian security forces have also jailed Generals against the coup, officials linked to Muslim Brotherhood while the deposed president himself is being held incommunicado.

Eric Trager, expert of Egyptian politics at the Washington Institute, wrote in Foreign Policy Magazine that the views expressed in the thesis echo the Mubarak regime’s argument against democracy.

Sisi already showed contempt for ballot box legitimacy in his essay, going so far as to argue that there are “valid reasons” for autocrats to be wary of “relinquishing control to the public vote”. Sisi cites “security concerns both internal and external” and the necessity “to educate the population” as the foundation for these beliefs. After the coup, the education argument was recycled by some liberal leaders, who blamed their repeated electoral defeats on Egyptian voters’ “lack of education”.

Sisi’ highlights the threat posed by security forces “loyal to the ruling party” rather than to the government: “If a democracy evolves with different constituencies, there is no guarantee that the police and military forces will align with the emerging ruling parties”.

Canadians Caught in the ‘Islamist’ Net on Hunger Strike in Infested Egyptian Jail*

Canadians Caught in the ‘Islamist’ Net on Hunger Strike in Infested Egyptian Jail*

By Patrick Kingsley

Two Canadians on hunger strike inside an Egyptian prison have been beaten during their six-week-long detention, the pair have said in a statement smuggled out of their jail cell.

Filmmaker John Greyson and medic Tarek Loubani were arrested during disturbances in Cairo on 16 August, and detained without charge ever since. The case has become a cause célèbre in the west with actors Alec Baldwin and Charlize Theron among thousands calling for their release. But little was known about either the circumstances of their arrest or their treatment inside the notorious Tora prison south of Cairo.

In their statement, posted on the website of a friend, they state;

Statement:

“We are on the 12th day of our hunger strike at Tora, Cairo’s main prison, located on the banks of the Nile. We’ve been held here since August 16 in ridiculous conditions: no phone calls, little to no exercise, sharing a 3m x 10m cell with 36 other political prisoners, sleeping like sardines on concrete with the cockroaches; sharing a single tap of earthy Nile water.

“We never planned to stay in Egypt longer than overnight. We arrived in Cairo on the 15th with transit visas and all the necessary paperwork to proceed to our destination: Gaza. Tarek volunteers at Al-Shifa Hospital in Gaza, and brings people with him each time. John intended to shoot a short film about Tarek’s work.

“Because of the coup, the official Rafah border was opening and closing randomly, and we were stuck in Cairo for the day. We were carrying portable camera gear (one light, one microphone, John’s HD Canon, two Go-Pros) and gear for the hospital (routers for a much-needed wifi network and two disassembled toy-sized helicopters for testing the transportation of medical samples).

“Because of the protests in Ramses Square and around the country on the 16th, our car couldn’t proceed to Gaza. We decided to check out the Square, five blocks from our hotel, carrying our passports and John’s HD camera. The protest was just starting – peaceful chanting, the faint odour of tear gas, a helicopter lazily circling overhead – when suddenly calls of “doctor”. A young man carried by others from God-knows-where, bleeding from a bullet wound. Tarek snapped into doctor mode…and started to work doing emergency response, trying to save lives, while John did video documentation, shooting a record of the carnage that was unfolding. The wounded and dying never stopped coming. Between us, we saw over fifty Egyptians die: students, workers, professionals, professors, all shapes, all ages, unarmed. We later learned the body count for the day was 102.

“We left in the evening when it was safe, trying to get back to our hotel on the Nile. We stopped for ice cream. We couldn’t find a way through the police cordon though, and finally asked for help at a check point.

“That’s when we were: arrested, searched, caged, questioned, interrogated, videotaped with a ‘Syrian terrorist’, slapped, beaten, ridiculed, hot-boxed, refused phone calls, stripped, shaved bald, accused of being foreign mercenaries. Was it our Canadian passports, or the footage of Tarek performing CPR, or our ice cream wrappers that set them off? They screamed ‘Canadian’ as they kicked and hit us. John had a precisely etched bootprint bruise on his back for a week.

“We were two of 602 arrested that night, all 602 potentially facing the same grab-bag of ludicrous charges: arson, conspiracy, terrorism, possession of weapons, firearms, explosives, attacking a police station. The arrest stories of our Egyptian cellmates are remarkably similar to ours: Egyptians who were picked up on dark streets after the protest, by thugs or cops, blocks or miles from the police station that is the alleged site of our alleged crimes.

“We’ve been here in Tora prison for six weeks, and are now in a new cell (3.5m x 5.5m) that we share with ‘only’ six others. We’re still sleeping on concrete with the cockroaches, and still share a single tap of Nile water, but now we get (almost) daily exercise and showers. Still no phone calls. The prosecutor won’t say if there’s some outstanding issue that’s holding things up. The routers, the film equipment, or the footage of Tarek treating bullet wounds through that long bloody afternoon? Indeed, we would welcome our day in a real court with the real evidence, because then this footage would provide us with our alibi and serve as a witness to the massacre.

“We deserve due process, not cockroaches on concrete. We demand to be released.

“Peace, John & Tarek”

Prosecutors continue to refuse to say on what charges the pair are being held, and have denied several Guardian requests to interview them in prison. On Sunday their lawyer said authorities had extended the Canadians’ detention by another 45 days.

They were among dozens of journalists to be arrested or assaulted in Egypt this summer, as suspicion from Egyptian civilians and officials of foreigners – and in particular foreign media – peaked. Greyson and Loubani are likely to have attracted more suspicion than most because they lacked accreditation from Egypt’s press centre, carried video evidence of extreme state wrongdoing, and were on their way to Gaza – a place associated in the minds of many opponents of Mohamed Mursi with the Muslim Brotherhood.

Thousands of Egyptians also remain in jail after a series of arbitrary arrests this summer – many of them uncharged. They include al-Jazeera’s Abdullah al-Shami and Mohammed Badr, and Ahmed Abu Deraa, one of the few reporters based in Egypt’s lawless Sinai peninsula. Abu Deraa faces a military trial for reporting on alleged army abuses in its counter-insurgency campaign in the region.
