    If Caribbean people think it’s impossible for another one of these demons to walk the earth again, think again.

    YOU SAID: “…as close to God’s character as we can possibly achieve.”
    What is God’s Character?” Who determined what it is? And don’t tell me anything about it says so in the Bible? If you do does that book also include one that contains ‘the Forbidden Books of the Bible?” Does it also include the Sixth and Seventh book of Moses?Exactly what is “the character of God?” The “idiot” is asking these questions so be gentle.

    We did and probably still do have schools for the academically gifted. There have been attempts by some persons to have mixed ability classes and mixed ability schools. We as a society are still schizophrenic about this( i.e in two minds).

    I doubt we are talking about the same level of funding and class sizes for the exceptionally gifted Bernard, a name alone does not designate a school as for exceptionally gifted students they must indeed be exceptionally gifted, the school equipped for such and the students not just crammed for one test at 11 years old and herded into a school because of some centuries old myth for bragging and boasting rights…where most students burn out by 4th form…

    The schools for the gifted I speak about are specialized schools only for the gifted, I should know, I have never encountered one in the Caribbean, particularly not in Barbados.

    Bernard…even the age for entry to these gifted schools and the retrofitted exams are different, there is no comparison whatsoever.

    This is the definition of a gifted child, he is 7 years old, takes colleges courses and lectures at 2 universities, Duke being one, he is being touted as the Einstein of the next generation.

    He is a black child.

    You are quite right we are not talking about the same type of ‘gifted”. Has there been any follow through on the careers of these exceptional individuals? Do they end up being Einsteins? My reading of Einsteins biography does not indicate the type of ” gifted” that you described. My readings suggests that he was not accepted by the existing top universities in Germany.

    Bernard……..being brainwashed, mindwashed with one british themed exam at an early age, again, as is done in the Caribbean, is not being gifted, these gifted kids will decide for themselves what they want and if they want to continue, it’s their decision, many I knew personally continued or as happened more than once, dropped out like the dude from Bronx Science, another gifted high school, who then sold his invention for millions and then remained anonymous, not everyone likes the spotlight….many remain behind the scenes of government hierarchy. …advising.

    As I said…..many gifted kids when grown realize they can do more without the spotlight being always shone in them…many spend their lives in research labs so you would never know who they are or what they have accomplished to benefit the human race…do you know any of them personally.

    who then sold his invention for millions….sorry…billion.

    Bernard…,.before you dream up some other nonsense to waste my time, because I now suspect you have no clue…

    ……..being ACCEPTED into a gifted program entails constant assessments and aptitude testing, kids from as young as 3rd to 5th graders are ususally tested to IDENTIFY their special skills and talents….but assessments and testing are a requirement no matter the age…….,…

    ..,,,,a gifted student cannot be identified by just a one off, one day exam at 11 years old, the extraordinarily gifted I know….never took the 11 plus, I am not saying there are not exceptionally gifted students on the island and have not had for decades, I am saying you do not have the means to identify them….because most off them after taking that lousy, one day exam are erroneously deemed failures. ….but it’s the system and nonexistent testing mechanism and ministry of education that are the failures. ….because of ignorance, lack of knowledge.

    …….when I say that, Hartley Henry who attended St. George Secondary and who is now important to governments across the Caribbean comes to mind, there was and still is no aptitude testing available on the island for kids like him with special skills and talents.

    That 7 year old from Maryland….was exposed to that skills and aptitute testing at an early to be identified and able to lecture at Duke and Morehouse universities….they all have to be…….what he does after that, is now entirely up to him, no one else.

    And as these geniuses are humans first, they can also be sidelined by any illness….

    There are no guarantees in this life.

    Chuckle……Behold the progeny of an African slave….I wonder what he would be called in Bim…lol

    Francis Barber was born a slave but died a free man in the 1700s. Meet his great, great, great, grandson.

    Lol…that should jolt many people on the island into reality…but will it.

    Glad that you met a Pelau but unfortunately skin tone will always polarise Bimmers reality will never step in and for the simple reason that they,all skin tones like it so,they love their self imposed apartheid.

    Vincnt…..a little more pf this and we will end up married to each other…lol

    Well Well,
    Einstein was determined to be Dyslexic. Alan Emtage, a Bajan, wrote the precursor to Yahoo. He was a student then at McGill University. Read his history. If he had taken out patents on his invention (Archie), he would be Barbados’ first multibillionaire. He did not go to any school for gifted children.He went to Harrison College, and won a Barbados Scholarship, like his father. But, he created the first internet search engine; something that made Yahoo, Google etc possible, something that changed the world. Like Einstein.

    You missed a key point. He has never been recognised by the government of Barbados or the UWI – not even an honorary professorship..

  20. Well Well & Consequences Observing Blogger March 28, 2017 at 4:49 PM #

    So what’s your point Alvin… enter the gifted prpgrams…first ya have to know about them, did Emtage not go to school in Barbados….., but he was recognized in Canada right..,.

    …….I specifically stated the requirements for those gifted programs and the students I know, some family members…live in the US…..I specifically stated that my intent was not to say that there were no gifted students in Bim…but that there was no way to identify them, the apitude testing is not available. …so that when kids are preceived as failures after taking a one off, one day exam….they did not fail, it’s the ministry of education and the school system failed them.

    How many have they been since Emtage…..since, was it the 80s…. Alvin….ya get class loads in the gifted program, I bet ya can get class loads in Barbados too….if they can be identified through the requisite testing, which is not available on the island.

    You only tend to read and see what you want…I outlined the whole thing for Bernard, but you just had to come up with one student that you heard about in a 30 in 40 year period, there have been extrodinary talent leaving Barbados since Emtage, despite and in spite of negligent just have not heard of them…and their recognition for brilliance always comes outside of Barbados.. ….either North America, Europe, Australia, NZ…Asia or South America……etc.

    Iron Sharpen Iron Lyrics


    sha la la la la la la la la la la

    do bada do bada day

    la la la la la la la day ba

    do bada do bada day


    when you gonna dig a pit i tell you my brother

    dont dig one always dig two

    when you gonna dig a pit i tell you my brother dont

    dont dig one always dig two

    be careful of the things you do

    the everyday words you speak

    you walk on the streets

    you run up your mouth

    you want to see your brother

    be a prisoner always


    the countenance of one man brighten up another

    iron sharpen iron

    the countenance of one man brighten up another yes

    iron sharpen iron
