    President Donald Trump criticized California Rep. Maxine Waters for having a “low IQ,” while campaigning for Republican congressional candidate Rick Saccone Saturday. “And Maxine Waters, a very low IQ individual. Did you ever see her?” Trump said, before launching into an imitation of the Democratic representative.

    President Trump addresses a campaign rally for Pennsylvania special House election candidate Rick Saccone. Trump hit back at Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters who routinely calls for his impeachment. "Maxine Waters, a very low I.Q. individual, ever see her? You ever seen her? 'We will impeach him! We will impeach the president!' But he hasn't done anything wrong. It doesn't matter, we will impeach him! She's a low I.Q. individual. You can't help it. She really is," Trump told the crowd. Trump called Conor Lamb, Saccone's opponent, 'Lamb the Sham' who is acting like a Republican to get elected.

    Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters alleged Sunday that President Donald Trump is "racist" because he questioned her IQ level. On Saturday night, President Trump addressed the annual Gridiron Club Dinner, an event that is known for its humor. Trump took jabs at his own administration and many of his rivals, and at one point joked that Rep. Waters should "immediately take an IQ test." [Snip] The California Democrat did not think the joke was funny and questioned Trump’s own mental agility before accusing him of racism.
  • Race and IQ: A High School Science Fair Project Ignites a Storm

    We don’t know the student’s name, but we do know that he hit a nerve — in fact, he hit a whole bunch of them. Identified only as a boy of Asian descent at C.K. McClatchy High School in California, the teen’s recent science-fair project, “Race and IQ,” propounded the thesis that differences in groups’ average intelligence influence their academic performance. He couldn’t win, though, because his project was removed after parents, staff and other students became “upset” and one girl said she felt “unsafe and uneasy.” The irony? A project on evolution would no doubt have been well received...

    Wall Street Journal ^ | February 13, 2018 | Jason L. Riley
    The Trump administration spent much of its first year blocking or delaying its predecessor’s regulations. Thankfully, that work continues apace in year two. Any day now, look for the Education Department to halt implementation of an Obama -era rule on racial disparities in special education that was set to take full effect in July. Black students are more likely than white students to be placed in special-education classes, and the Obama administration attributed the disparity (along with nearly every black-white gap) to racial bias. Thus in late 2016, weeks before leaving office, Obama officials issued a rule that threatened school...

    Most adults would like to think school has left them equipped for most things that life throws at them. But a particularly tricky IQ test has left internet users stumped, pushing their mathematical and linguistic skills to the limit. Jumping right in at the deep end with a complicated numerical question, the Playbuzz quiz is certainly not for the fainthearted. Try your hand at the quiz to see how you score, and scroll down to the bottom for answers (no cheating!)
  • Intelligence of Norwegians and Danes on the wane, say researchers

    Intelligence levels have fallen in all Scandinavian countries, including Norway and Denmark, according to an analysis. The study was conducted by James Flynn, a leading researcher of intelligence quotient (IQ) measurement, writes Norwegian news agency NTB. IQ in the Scandinavian countries had been on the up for decades, but the trend has now been reversed, according to a report published by journal Intelligence. Measures taken as part of the study have shown that, in Norway, fewer people are reaching higher levels of mathematical and linguistic ability. The trend is similarly prominent in both Denmark and Norway and even more so...

    A study by a research team from the University of Pennsylvania found that eating fish at least once a week can raise children’s IQ by nearly 5 points in the Wechsler Intelligence Scale. The study was conducted last month among 541 Chinese children between the ages of 9 and 11. The children answered questionnaires about how often they had eaten fish in the past four weeks and the options ranged from “never” to “at least once a week.” The findings showed that those who eat fish once a week scored 4.8 points higher on the IQ test than those who...

    As longtime readers will have noticed, I'm increasingly bored by the daily soap opera of politics, mainly because professional politicians rarely have anything to say about anything that matters. The left nominally addresses the Great Remaking of the World - from mass immigration to transgender bathrooms - by confining itself to a few bogus sentimentalist bromides ("We've always been a nation of immigrants", "Love wins") designed to assure everyone that a) "diversity lotteries" and chain migration are a good thing; and, if you're minded to bring up problematic details, b) it's inevitable, so don't bother trying to resist. The right,...

    The researchers, who examined the brains of 199 females and 110 males, found that individuals with better wiring of the anterior insula and the anterior cingulate cortex - two areas of the brain associated with the cognitive processing of task-relevant information - demonstrated better cognitive function. The university defined intelligence as the 'general mental capability that involves the ability to reason, to think abstractly, and to learn quickly from experiences,' and consulted graph theoretical network analysis methods to draw their conclusions. 'The different topological embedding of these regions into the brain network could make it easier for smarter persons to...
  • Why parents should never spank children

    The Conversation ^ | Oct 29, 2017 | T.O. Afifi, E. Romano
    The research clearly shows that spanking is related to an increased likelihood of many poor health, social and developmental outcomes. These poor outcomes include mental health problems, substance use, suicide attempts and physical health conditions along with developmental, behavioural, social and cognitive problems. Equally important, there are no research studies showing that spanking is beneficial for children. Those who say spanking is safe for a child if done in a specific way are, it would seem, simply expressing opinions. And these opinions are not supported by scientific evidence.

    The idea of machine learning becoming smarter than the human brain is often referred to as the "singularity." When exactly this will happen is oft-debated among the tech community. "Singularity is the concept that [mankind's] brain will be surpassed, this is the tipping point, crossing point, that artificial intelligence, computer intelligence surpass [mankind's] brain and that is happening in this century for sure. I would say there is no more debate, no more doubt," Son says. Son is particularly aggressive in his prediction of how soon the singularity will happen — in the "next 30 years or so," he says....

    Controversy as Oregon couple are forced to give up their children to social services after they were deemed 'not intelligent enough' to care for the babies. Amy Fabbrini, 31, and Eric Ziegler, 38, had both of their children taken into foster care, the youngest right after he was born in the hospital. After taking a required IQ test, Ziegler scored a meager 66 and Fabbrini a 72. The IQ of the average person ranges anywhere from 90-110. Domestic abuse and neglect were not factors in the custody case, but didn't need to be, according to a report. Fabbrini and Ziegler...

    A Virginia high sent a disturbing letter to parents and students announcing they would be selecting students for Advanced Placement and honors classes at least partly based on skin color, a concerned parent told Fox News. Martin Luther King, Jr. must be turning over in his grave. A parent forwarded me a copy of the letter sent from John Handley High School in Winchester. “Through our collective work, advanced classes such as AP and Honors will have proportional representation,” read the letter. “Proportional representation is 40% White, 35% Hispanic, 12% African American, 10% mixed race.” The letter went on to...
  • UPDATE: Not Being Stupid Is ‘Cognitive Privilege’ Now, Which Is Just Like White Privilege

    The University of Iowa’s student newspaper has announced the discovery of a special privilege which intelligent people acquire as an accident of birth. This new privilege — called “cognitive privilege” — functions in essentially the same way as white privilege. The Daily Iowan revealed the discovery of this new privilege earlier this week. Garden-variety white privilege “is an important topic that deserves a public discussion,” the op-ed on “cognitive privilege” explains, but it is also “prudent to at least mention the wider concept contained therein: that of privilege itself.” Privilege in general is “the receipt of certain benefits wholly through...

    Suppose it’s true. Suppose that, at the end of the day, people of African descent have lower IQs on average than do other groups of humans, and that this gap is caused, at least in part, by genetic differences. Of late, since Charles Murray was all but physically assaulted when he tried to speak at Middlebury, the issue as to whether his claim (with Richard J. Herrnstein) in The Bell Curve that blacks on average have lower IQs, and that it’s “highly likely” that genes play a role, has entered the public discourse once again, in part through a podcast...
