HUGH,
You've boasted in the past that you have a master's degree and that the jamaican educational system was top-notch.
I wonder in which discipline you've earned a master's degree? Perhaps, in Judeo-Christian theology with emphais on creation from nothing. LOL.
Here are 2 simple grade 9 questions:
1) Expand (2a -3b)^1115 without using formula. Show the working steps.
2) Find the infinite series for 1/(a+b). Hence, find the infinite series for 1/(1 + x).

My son, I do not have to prove anything. Living in a country that was once a British colony you should know about Cambridge examinations.

Now, I successfully did A Level Maths in ONE year. This means that unlike MOST people in Britain and India and elsewhere I did not take TWO years to cover the Maths syllabus for grades 12 and 13 I took ONE year and passed it.

My dear Hugh,
Hi!
A veggie is plucked off a tree without killing the tree/plant itself and another bathch of veggies grow in place of the plucked ones.
Cereals are harvested only at the end of their short life-cycle i.e. after the life leaves the plant/grass.
So, there's no killing in these instances except for the fact that chemicals used to protect the plant/trees/crops kill rodents, insects, microbes, weeds etc.
I am not sure if I'll eat meat/fish/poultry/eggs - ever since the age of 1 or 2, I've been a vegetarian as my late parents observed that I'd puke out the non-veg stuff in minutes and would fall ill (usually become restless, cranky and feverish) after being fed non-veg foods and so they began feeding me only veg foods and this practice has remained with me till now and expectedly non-veg foods create disturbances in the consciousness when the yogic experiences commence. Non-veg food besides carry the vibes of slaughter/murder and these further unbalance the mind/emotions.
I'm wondering if I should experiment with certain non-veg foods despite the hypersensitivity of my body due to the yogic experiences that're continuing till now spontaneously.......
The other day, my pals wanted me to sip a fortied wine (Portuguese port) but I declined since I've never drunk alcohol in my entire life and I found the vibes emanating from the port rather unsettling.
Anyway, thank you for taking time out to reply to my queries.
Best Regards.,
PS: Are your balls jet black or brown? LOL.
I have to study, now. Bye.
Joel---A veggie is plucked off a TREE without killing the tree/plant itself and another bathch of veggies grow in place of the plucked ones.

Hugh--- Do you mean like the Lettuce TREE?

My point remains, killing is involved in the consumption of vegetables e.g. LETTUCE.

Dear Sister Hugh (smiles)

The British A Level Math/Physics/Chemistry syllabi is pedestrian, oh! it's so ordinary, and no match for the content and rigor in the same subjects we're exposed to in Asian countries like India, China, South Korea and even Iran.

We have dozens of school in Mumbai affiliated to the Cambridge O, A, IGCSE and AS levels and we laugh when see their books and read their question papers.

You won't stand a chance in any of the entrance exams in India if you're an A level student in which case one has to either go to the UK or US for university studies or stay back and enroll in one of the mediocre colleges back here but I repeat clearing any of the stiff entrance exams after Grade 12 in India with an A level background is a huge disadvantage and the student stands no chance - he won't even understand the difficult entrance exam questions.

A level studies are superior to the high school studies in the US but American high schoolers and undergrads and in many cases grads have such a poor level of knowledge of their subjects of specialization it's no wonder we see them fumbling where the most ordinary questions in math and science are concerned. No wonder Asians are dominating the US education and research scene.

It would suffice to say that your level of knowledge and logical skills in math and science are pathetic.

Anyway, you can stick to pearching about Jesus and his mom to the cruffs in Jamaica. This job profile suits you.

Now, back to studying for the entrance exams. I think I should clear the BARC entrance exam to doc degree with ease going by the way my revision of key concepts is concerned and my scores too are great in the mock tests that I keep taking each day after recapitulation of the study topics. Bye.

Imagine being stuck in a society where standardized testing still matters, especially for grad studies?

I guess no one has ever heard about independent research skills.

Standardization is important -- if you're going to produce automatons.

Instead of guilt prone proselytizing BS and up in your face obnoxious claims Christians often do, show people the 'gifts of the sprit' in laying on of the hands, true healing, though prayer and the personal results, along with personal kindness and charity and likely you will not be labeled as a threat to Judaism. Remember bad people who say the believe in Jesus have done horrendous things to the people of the Jewish faith, so there is no wonder they despise Jesus and his followers. Jews escaped to Israel to get away from people who say they believe in Jesus and did murderous acts and marginalized the lives of Jews, so it is no wonder that they fear you and want to eliminate your presence. Be honest and call yourselves "Christians" because that is what you really are.

I think you put it best a while back, explaining how Asians excelled at copying and reverse engineering, while Americans and Israelis et al excelled at innovating.

But really, what is the purpose of grad education if it doesnt encourage creativity and independent thinking?

Standardized tests don't encourage squat, which is why pretty much no American grad school takes them seriously (or at least not as serious as committee-tailored qualifying exams and research sponsorship).

(By the way, WE do not associate the word TREE with vegetables. Give us some more time so that we may upgrade our educational system to your standards and then we shall make the same association as is done in India)

Israelis are thieves who steal the ideas of gentiles and then pass them off as their own or in many cases they're gifted scientific/tech ideas on the quiet by people with vested interests. There's enough proof on this subject. LOL.
