POLLITO110 Posted February 11, 2013 Author Share Posted February 11, 2013 (edited) Please elaborate on what you mean by this? In Catalonia or Catalunya (or how exactly is said in English). We speak Catalan, there are also a lot of spanish colons that speak spanish, so people uses to have two mother tongues. Catalan+ French in the rousillon (that is now inside french borders) And Catalan + Spanish in the remaining territories (eg.barcelona). Some colons only speak Spanish. There are also like 150 languajes (like punjabi, urdu, and of course english...). What means mainstreamed? That is a therm from the united states, that means the opposite than being included in a Gifted Program. So if you are extremelly gifted and you are mainstreamed, what happens is that when you are 4 years old you parents say: " Be ready, because you will go to the school and learn a lot of thinks, this is very difficult". But in the first day you realize that this school is for people that cannot read or count, so you don't want to have nothing to do with it, because it's insulting. Then if this continues, you develop underperforming. Moderately gifted do it with 8-9-10 years. When you have underperforming, you thend to not learn nothing in the school that is related to what they want to teach you (eg grammar, caligraphy...), if you compensate it with what you learned outside the school some years ago, this goes almost undetected, otherwise, they confuse you with a retarded, wich derivates to a visit by a psychiatrist, and so on until there appears some specialist in giftedness. When you move to another school that has no capacity for giftedness, then the problem begins again from the beginning or worse. You can perform at a acceptable level in the school, but as you are not interested at all in what they are teaching, the teacher gets angry and you go to the psychiatrist anyway. This is why most extremely gifted, have been diagnosed because the psychiatrist wanted to know if the boy is really gifted or has some rare illness that is not TDAH, Asperger... because they have already been discarded. If the child is moved to a special center (one in the whole country along with spain, that is also carrying their own problems), then their negative symptoms disappear by sudden. If the parents are against bringing the child to an special center , And they do not have the pater custodia of the child suspended by authorities (like my case). Underperforming continues and gets worse. Then at the end of the mainstream (university included), and if there is not a job that could continue the effect, underperforming begins to vanish. Sometimes completely, sometimes not. At least this is what happens in my country. Species is singular and plural form, there's no such thing as "specie" in that sense. Not very on topic, but regarding your topic heading, how is it possible for a new species to emerge by means of "massive murder"? I've seen in that forum, that some people wants to do eugenesics by killing everybody with a low iq. I suppose that the idea is that if there only remains people with a high iq, there is reproductive isolation because the other individuals are killed, and they evolve to another species that is different that the extinted homo-sapiens, or they continue with the name homo-sapiens but all are from an specific race. This idea has many flaws, because: A). You do not actually need to do it, because reproductive isolation is already there. B). There are things like the hothousing effect (the educative), and more than one would be given the wrong label. C). It's more likely to see low iq people wanting to kill high iq people that are from another specie. D). It's difficult to put a number, to get people that has a iq different enough to be another species, you need to search from a hugue population. E). It's way very expensive, you need to kill a lot of people. and so on. A new species could also appear by banning inter-marriages. Humans create new species by selective mating or pollination. A new race is easier to obtain than a new species. Edited February 11, 2013 by POLLITO110 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
