Whenever Any Form of Government Becomes Destructive To These Ends,
It Is The Right of the People to Alter Or To Abolish It,

Just Another Day In Israel: 16-Year-Old Invents New Math Theory

From Israelly Cool:
It’s common for some high school kids to need the help of a math tutor. For others, numbers come naturally. And then there’s Tamar Barabi. The Israeli teenager just invented a new geometric theorem. 
Like most discoveries, the eureka moment happened by accident. Tamar turned in her math homework and the teacher said the theory she used to solve the problem didn’t actually exist. 
“He said if I could prove it, it could be my theory. So that’s what happened,” Barabi told From The Grapevine. 
With help from her dad, who is also a math teacher, they sent the theorem to experts around the world. 
Known as the Three Radii Theorem, or “Tamar’s Theory” for short, it goes as follows: “If three or more equal lines leave a single point and reach the boundary of a circle, the point is the center of the circle and the lines are its radii.” 
Believe it or not, that’s the simple explanation. To compose the actual theorem, Barabi had to write up three proofs, a series of conclusions and some sample exercises. 
“Tamar deserves praise for finding a new twist of stating that a circle has only one center and only one radius,” Professor Ron Livne, who teaches at the Einstein School of Mathematics at Hebrew University inJerusalem, told From The Grapevine. 
Added Ofer Grossman from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology: “It’s cool to see how Tamar’s theorem can give elegant proofs for other important theorems.” 
It’s enough to make Clock Boy explode with rage.

Yes but can she rip apart clocks and put them in a case to look like a bomb?

Don't buy it Redneck.

It's for the same reason that Asian Americans now occupy such a growing % of slots in law and medical schools.

Cultural heritage, and family expectation and demand.

There's a guy named Kevin MacDonald (U Cal something - who, IMHO, is a racist, btw) who has made a life's study out of trying to prove the cultural magnetic force of the (ashkenazic) Jews has RESULTED in not only higher group intelligence, but THAT'S THE PLAN, as well as it's corollaries.

Now you have a state which is turning from a religiously inspired socialism (Tikkan Olam) to individual enterprise, and the results are pretty clear amid that cultural and family setting.

If you check THIS SITEI bet you will find a bell curve of ethnic/geographic contributions
