Great post noor100. Very interesting and enlightening. After hearing their approach and process, it seems so simple. Very smart
family. Congratulations to the 8 yr old twins who beat the age of their sister by a year in winning the same title. It really starts at home. How unfortunate, that our kids don't have the luxury of having this type of learning instilled before having to enter into the cesspool of public education offered here in America. Are there more Marva Collins in the world. Wouldn't it be nice if some of our educators would hold after school programs in our communities,maybe in our homes, to help our children with the preparation . Maybe we need to get back to the slave mentality....that which the massa don't want us to know, we find joy in learning how to do it. Kids don't like school, because, they are NOT prepared for the lessons and don't want to be embarressed.

HA!...Yet, again, our people shatter the myths and stereotypes!

I woulda loved to have been a fly on the wall when Dr. James D. Watson, one of the co-discoverers of DNA, heard THIS news! ---He's the one who said that Africans were "intellectually inferior;" and then, in recent years, it was found out that HE had some African blood in him! roflmbo!

Thank you for posting this! :toast: I'M LOVIN' IT!

DNA Pioneer’s Genome Blurs Race Lines

Now, this is awkward.


James D. Watson, the co-discoverer of the structure of DNA and winner of the Nobel prize, raised a storm recently when a British newspaper quoted him saying that black Africans are not as intelligent as whites. But his own brilliant DNA seems to blur the lines.

A new analysis of Dr. Watson’s genome shows that he has 16 times the number of genes considered to be of African origin than the average white European does — about the same amount of African DNA that would show up if one great-grandparent were African, said Kari Stefansson, the chief executive of deCODE Genetics of Iceland, which did the analysis.

“This came up as a bit of a surprise,” Dr. Stefansson said in an interview, “especially as a sequel to his utterly inappropriate comments about Africans.”

After the news of Dr. Watson’s genetic ancestry was published in The Times of London on Sunday, much of the British media played the news for a lark, with headlines like “Revealed: Scientist Who Sparked Racism Row Has Black Genes” and “DNA Pioneer James Watson Is Blacker Than He Thought.”...
