Too old to learn but needing to better my communication skills

BIT #1 Spelling bee winner interview

Learning, knowledge and entertainment

  • How much fun was the interview to you?

BIT #2  From old and new:
Who could start working for NASA at age 16?
                           Chris Hirata 
Genius: John Stuart Mill (1806 – 73) 
An English philosopher, political economist and civil servant claimed in his autobiography:
“could write Greek with his left hand while writing Latin with his right.”
Learned Greek at 3; wrote a treatise on the history of Rome at 6; reading Plato at 7;  and algebra at 8; Newtonian arithmetic and chemistry age 13 at the Royal Military College; at 14,  metaphysics, and logic at Montpellier University. 

On Liberty presented one of the most eloquent defenses of individual freedom in nineteenth-century social and political philosophy and is today perhaps the most widely-read liberal argument in support of the value of liberty.

Genius-to-be: Maximilian Janish
The little math genius , aged 12, from Meierskappel skipped a class in primary school three times, and entered the first year of high school in the summer of 2012. He took the Matura (school leaving) examination in mathematics in the spring of 2013, and passed with flying colours.

Artistic communication for autistic offspring
BIT #3  "Telepathic” Child Tested By Scientist- Q&A

On top of having some incredible skills in language and mathematics, this savant, a 5-year-old boy from Los Angeles, is also said to have psychic powers. The video posted on YouTube by the boy’s mother, Nyx Sanguino, shows Ramses speaking Russian at 13 months old, speaking Japanese at the age of 2 and solving complex algebra now at the age of 5.

Q: What are Dr Powell observation on the capabilities of the child? 
Los Angeles, California resident Ramses Sanguino has been diagnosed with autism. He is also being described as a “child savant” since he is able to solve complex mathematical equations and speak several different foreign languages ever since he was young.
After being trained at John Hopkins University, Dr. Powell starting running a private practice in the city of Medford, Oregon. She decided to work with and study Ramses as a part of her cutting-edge research project on telepathy.Dr. Powell believes that telepathy may be more common in children with autism because it provides an alternative form of communication between the children and their parents who ‘desperately want to communicate with one another, but can’t’.
         Dr Powell Answers:

  • “If you have your primary language compromised then that would be a perfect set up for telepathy,” she said, “because here you have a child and a parent who desperately want to communicate with one another.” 
  • “To get three of them correct it would be one out of nine, times one out of nine, times one out of nine, which is one out of 729”
  • “It’s very risky to one’s credibility to take on a subject like this. I am as confident that telepathy exists as I am of a lot of things that are actually accepted by science.”
