Dr. Michio Kaku Says America Has A Secret Super Weapon.

So why is America seemingly so successful and produces amazing innovations from Silicon valley? When we watch American TV and talk to a lot of people they come across as really stupid. So where do all these Nobel laureates come from?

Well, America has several secret weapons that most nations (especially Americans) have never heard of. The secret weapon, the weapon that keeps the US at the forefront of innovation and scientific progress and high tech, is the H1B.

That is the secret weapon that most nations and people have never heard of. What is it? The H1B is the genius visa. If you are “a genius,” for example you have a PhD, if you have wealth, if you’re an established public figure, then bang, America wants you and you get a green card to go straight into the United States to energize Silicon Valley, which is 50% foreign born.

While Bill Gates and Steve Jobs are not foreign born, 50% of the scientists behind Bill and Steve are foreign-born. There’s a massive brain drain from foreign countries and it the the United States that is sucking in all the top talent and geniuses.

This is where innovation takes place and is rewarded financially. Lets be clear, America does “see the genius in the classroom.” like the young Gates and young Jobs and even the young Albert Einstein.

In the East there is an expression, “The nail that sticks out gets hammered down.” In the East there is this Confucian tradition that you’re not supposed to make your peers look bad by excelling and trying to achieve something beyond their abilities. Don’t make everyone around you look stupid in other words.

However, in the West, there is another saying, and that is, “The squeaky wheel gets the grease.” So, the innovators, the real imaginative thinkers, they are rewarded in the American system, while in the East they are hammered down.

And third, the American college system is not so bad. Even though the high school system generates millions of near-illiterate students, by the time they hit college, then that’s when they begin to accelerate. That’s when they begin to get up to speed if they have it in them.

But the US can not sustain their scientific establishment this way. They can not continue to rely on foreign scientists. They need to generate their own pool of geniuses.

World’s first surviving panda triplets

Six month old giant panda cub Long Long eats bamboo in Chimelong Safari Park in Guangzhou in February 16, 2014.

Researchers place new-born panda cubs on a crib on September 23, 2013 at the Chengdu Giant Panda Breeding Center in China's Sichuan province.

A keeper tucks in a group of panda cubs for a nap at the Chengdu Giant Panda Breeding Center on September 26, 2011.

There are very few pandas are born every year. Unfortunately, even fewer of the fragile Panda cubs stay alive for very long.

So, when triplet baby panda’s where born recently in China and have so far survived over two weeks, it is seen simply as a miracle.

At birth, the panda cubs, which weighed 122 grams, 90 grams, and 83 grams, respectively. According to all records, they are the only the only living panda triplets in the world.

Juxiao (“chrysanthemum smile”) who is 12 years old, gave birth to the cute little cubs on July 29 2014  in China’s Chimelong Safari Park which is in the southern city of Guangzhou.

“After nearly half a month under the care of the mother, the babies are very healthy,” China Daily reported Dong Guixin (Park Manager) as saying. He also mentioned the delivery took around 4 hours.

The panda cubs have already doubled their weight since birth.

Traditionally, Pandas are known for having very low survival rates, with only a third making it past infancy.

A set of giant panda triplets was born in China, back in 1999 however one died after only three days.

Excitingly, at Edinburgh Zoo in Scotland, another baby panda cub is due within the next few weeks to it’s mum Tian Tian.
