THE UNITED STATES TOPS INTERNATIONAL MATH OLYMPIAD - A FEAT ACHIEVED FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 21 YEARS - THIS VICTORY PUTS OUR YOUTH - ON TOP - AND SHOULD SPUR EDUCATORS - TO INVEST MORE IN OUR YOUTH - YEAR ROUND.







The Math Olympiad was held in Chiang Mai, Thailand.



Kudos to our United States youth - for the time time in 21 years - they can stand tall and say - they won the International Math Olympiad - for the first time in 21 years.

Team America has been doing some what well the last ten years - better the last five years -  this sweet victory - says a lot and brings fame to our Nation - the United States of America.

Followed by China and Korea - who came in second and third place - the students from these countries - study very hard - and have an advantage when it comes to the population - of their respective countries.

We often talk in generalities when it comes to the education of our youth. Some where along the line - we let down our guard and hope - and we often wonder - if our educators - have given up - not any more.

Now we all can rejoice - pull up our shelves - and aim for the sky. The ability to be logical, common sense, and analytical is critical to the higher sciences - and using the digital world to bring about progress - that uplifts all.

Upward mobility - and hopefully - wisdom will prevail - and the great divide we see today - will lessen.

After all we know - Americans are hard working - what we have inherent - is our ability to adapt and innovate. Truly speaking it helps to be creative - and be on the math team.

We have the ingredients to make this work - and the multi-ethnic, multi-talented youth that our Nation can boast - some of the best brains in the world.

God has blessed us - and we must treasure and more nurture this talent.

 Kudos to our youth - who put their best foot forward - and honored us all. We thank you all - and we pray that in future - we keep winning this prestigious award.

I want to give a shout to our youth and young adults in San Francisco - time you all put your best foot forward - and check mate the corrupt and those that have screwed up the future of many youth and young adults.

Corrupt politicians like London Breed, Malia Cohen, Katy Tang, Julie Christensen, Mark Farrell and Scott Wiener.

The coach who deserves kudos - Coach Po-Shen Loh who himself competed some 16 years ago and finished in 10th place.

This was Coach Loh second year in charge of this budding team - he spent four years before as an assistant coach.

Coach Loh admits that after five years of second and third place finishes - he felt good to beat the Chinese at this prestigious international math olympiad.

The rankings are based on the number of  points scored by individual team members on six mathematical problems.

Students tackle the problems three at a time in 4-5 hour sessions over two day





World Math Champions - U.S.A.

Five United States team members won gold medals: Ryan Alweiss, Allen Liu, Yang Liu, Shyam Narayanan and David Stoner. A sixth member of this team - Michael Kural missed gold by one point and settled for silver.

The United States edged out China by four points - 185-181. South Korea took third place.

Much like our United States women won the World Soccer Cup and made us all feel good - this victory by our youth and young adults - should spur us all to invest in our youth and more love our youth.

Normally, I delve into San Francisco politics and when you do that - there is little in that cesspool - that shines and less that we can be proud of - this victory - is a breath of fresh air.

Again, Kudos to Coach Po-Shen Loh who coached this winning team - who is a mathematics professor at Carnegie Mellon University.

It is our hope that next year we bring this prestigious award back to the United States to further spur our Nation - to do well.

More - in those areas - that garner the support of entities and institutions of higher learning - projecting our youth and young adults to shine and shed light where there is abject darkness.
