Here’s a positive story you won’t see on CNN, ABC, CBS, BBC, PBS, MSNBC And certainly not FOX…

 

Romford boy, 11, with higher IQ than Einstein asked to join Mensa

 

By  Friday, May 9, 2014 

 

Could you beat Einstein or Stephen Hawking in a pub quiz? Probably not, but one 11-year-old boy could probably give them a run for their money.

Ramarni Wilfred, of Loom Grove, Romford, took a Mensa test and has been told he has a higher IQ level than Steven Hawking, Bill Gates and even Albert Einstein.

He said: “I can’t begin to compare myself to these great men whose hard work clearly proves that they are true geniuses.

“Who knows? Perhaps my ‘true genius’ moment will come when I grow up but for now I am just proud of myself and happy that my mum and sister are proud of me too.”

Ramarni, his mum and older sister moved to Romford two years ago but it was a lot earlier that his mum Anthea started to realise there was something a little special about her son.

Anthea, 37, said: “By the time he was three he could read and write and from 18 months we discussed the news and his favourite book was an encyclopaedia!”

Ramarni was part of the gifted and talented programme, a scheme to develop the abilities of more able pupils, as well as the Brilliant Club. It is a programme for those aged 10-16 who come from less privileged backgrounds, held at St Anthony’s Primary School, in Upton Avenue, Forest Gate.

After being invited to a graduation ceremony at Oxford University after writing an essay awarded a 2:1, he was then invited to take an IQ test at Birbeck University.

But it was to his surprise, he was given an IQ of 162, placing him in the top 1 per cent in the UK. Ramarni said: “I was surprised and very happy when I read the results of my IQ test as I didn’t feel very confident ­after completing the test.

“I was the youngest person there and some people looked in their 40’s!”

Mensa’s chief executive, John Stevenage, said: “Ramarni’s score shows he has great potential and we are pleased to welcome him to Mensa.

“We hope he will enjoy being part of the society and interacting with fellow members.”

As a member, Ramarni will now be invited to exclusive events and will be able to mix with people of his own age with the same interests as himself.

He added: “I don’t really see having a high IQ as a big deal but I do feel very privileged to be invited to join Mensa and can’t wait to ­attend some of the events.”

 

 

Thank you Ms. .

Statement by Press Secretary Jay Carney on Terrorist Attack in China

 

The United States condemns the horrific terrorist attack in Urumqi, China today.  We are aware of reports that the attack resulted in the death of 31 citizens and the injury of 90 more. This is a despicable and outrageous act of violence against innocent civilians, and the United States resolutely opposes all forms of terrorism.  We offer our condolences and sympathies to the victims, their families, and all those affected by this attack.

 

 

FACT SHEET & REPORT: President Obama Visits Cooperstown to Highlight Travel and Tourism that is Growing our Economy and Creating Jobs

 

 

Statement by the Press Secretary on the Adam Smith Amendment

 

The President applauds Ranking Member Adam Smith for his continued stalwart leadership in standing up for our values and national security by advancing the cause of closing the detention facility at Guantanamo Bay.  By eliminating unwarranted and burdensome restrictions relating to the transfer of Guantanamo detainees, his amendment would further our efforts to move past this chapter in U.S. history.   We urge the House to adopt the Smith Amendment and put an end to the ongoing harm to the nation’s security that results from the operation of the facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

 

This Administration has repeatedly objected to statutory restrictions that impede our ability to responsibly close the detention facility and pursue appropriate options for the detainees remaining there, including by determining when and where to prosecute detainees, based on the facts and circumstances of each case and our national security interests.   In hundreds of terrorism-related cases – and as illustrated once again this week – our federal courts have proven themselves to be more than capable of administering justice.

 

Nearly a half billion dollars per year is an unacceptable price to pay for a facility that wastes our resources, creates friction with our allies, and undermines our standing in the world.    This needs to be the year Congress lifts the remaining restrictions and enables the closure of the detention facility at Guantanamo Bay.  We call on Members of both parties to work together to ensure the United States meets this goal.  If this year’s Defense Authorization bill continues unwarranted restrictions regarding Guantanamo detainees, the President will veto the bill.

  2. Thank you for supporting my son, Ramarni.

    • It is my pleasure Ms. Wilfred, a pleasure and an honor, you must be proud of him anyway but doubly so knowing he’s such a intelligent young man. Blessings & Namaste.

  3. Loved listening to the First Lady on the importance of education for young women, of course it is important for all young people but it is a crisis for now for young women. I think we know what one of the things she will focus on long-term.

    Loved the story of the young genius from the UK, just more proof isn’t it?

    The one fascinating story? The Smith Amendment. On the one hand you have a push to close it down, which we truly should. On the other hand you have a bunch of cretins trying to fund a build up of a state of the art system. Truly I do hate them so, at $69M, can’t we find something better to do?

    • What I hate more than a Mosquito Bite is when a dumbass says Barack didn’t make good on his campaign promise to close Gitmo. Dumbmuthafucka’s were under a rock the day the 112th CongrASS blocked/obstructed his bill to close the detention facility solely to make his campaign promise a fail.
