Is this Britain's smartest schoolboy? 11-year-old boy with higher IQ than Einstein

(yes original headline)

http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/britains-smartest-schoolboy-11-year-old-boy-4056609



AN 11-year-old schoolboy has joined Mensa after scoring higher than Stephen Hawking, Bill Gates and Albert Einstein in an IQ test.

Ramarni Wilfred started showing signs of genius as a toddler, when his favourite book was an encyclopedia.

He could read and write by the time he started reception at school and last year, at the age of 10 and still in primary school, wrote a philosophy paper on fairness that earned him a 2:1 and a mock Oxford graduation.

When his reception class wanted to move him up a year, mum Anthea objected, wanting him to grow up with other kids his age.



Missouri Highway Patrol commander Ron Johnson explains last night's response

It's rumored that Missouri Highway Patrol commander Ron Johnson was not told about SWAT teams being called in. If so, that smells like a serious turf war brewing on the streets of Ferguson.

That's in reference to last night in Ferguson.

ETA: Ok, here's a video of Johnson explaining last night:

Conservative Senator (Coburn): 'There Are Some Shows On Fox I Can't Watch' (VIDEO)

http://talkingpointsmemo.com/livewire/tom-coburn-oklahoma-senator-fox-news

Oklahoma's Tom Coburn is one of the most conservative senators, but sometimes Fox News is even too much for him.

The retiring Coburn was asked by a constituent during a town hall this week in Tulsa, Okla. what he would do if he were "in charge of media and communications in this country."

"How would you fix us so we are not focused on the superficial but on wisdom and transmitting that among the people?" the constituent asked.

After telling the man he hopes "nobody's ever in charge of media and communications in this country," Coburn surveyed the triumvirate of cable news channels.

Californiaís Record Heat Is Like Nothing Youíve Ever Seen... Yet

http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2014-08-15/california-s-record-heat-is-like-nothing-you-ve-ever-seen-yet.html

If hot thermometers actually exploded like they do in cartoons, there would be a lot of mercury to clean up in California right now.

The California heat this year is like nothing ever seen, with records that go back to 1895. The chart below shows average year-to-date temperatures in the state from January through July for each year. The orange line shows the trend rising 0.2 degrees Fahrenheit per decade.



The sharp spike on the far right of the chart is the unbearable heat of 2014. Thatís not just a new record; itís a chart-busting 1.4 degrees higher than the previous record. Itís an exclamation point at the end of a long declarative sentence.

GOPer Ernst: People On Medicaid Had No 'Personal Responsibility'

http://talkingpointsmemo.com/livewire/joni-ernst-medicaid-recipients-personal-responsibility

Iowa state Sen. Joni Ernst, the Republican nominee for U.S. Senate in the state, seems to have argued that a chunk of Medicaid recipients do not have any "personal responsibility for their health."

The argument, made by Ernst in April, was flagged by The Plum Line's Greg Sargent on Friday. It was part of Ernst laying out her opposition to Iowa expanding Medicaid. Here's the key passage:

Participation in the broken Medicaid program has doubled over the past decade. Iowa has nearly 500,000 Medicaid enrollees. If the program is expanded, it is estimated the Medicaid population will grow by an additional 110,000 to 181,000 recipients who have no personal responsibility for their health and no accountability for the care provided.


Ernst's campaign told Sargent that she was referring to "bureaucrats overseeing the program." Here's the response from Ernst spokeswoman Gretchen Hamel:
