The boy who knew too much: a child prodigy

This is the true story of scientific child prodigy, and former baby genius, Ainan Celeste Cawley, written by his father. It is the true story, too, of his gifted brothers and of all the Cawley family. I write also of child prodigy and genius in general: what it is, and how it is so often neglected in the modern world. As a society, we so often fail those we should most hope to see succeed: our gifted children and the gifted adults they become. Site Copyright: Valentine Cawley, 2006 +

Gong Xi Fa Cai: Happy Chinese New Year!

Happy Chinese New Year 2008, to all who are celebrating it. Or should I say: "Gong Xi Fa Cai!".

This is a big celebration and a national holiday here, in Singapore - the biggest holiday of the year, I would say (rather more so than Christmas, oddly enough).

Today signals the beginning of the Year of the Rat - but more of that in another post (I am too busy at this time to write more of it.)

Have a great day - in fact a great two weeks, all - for today presages the beginning of a two week festival.

For those of you outside of Chinese countries, Chinese New Year is often known as the Lunar New Year.

Best wishes all.

(If you would like to learn more of Ainan Celeste Cawley, a scientific child prodigy, aged eight years and one month, or his gifted brothers, Fintan, four years and seven months, and Tiarnan, two years exactly, please go to: I also write of gifted education, IQ, intelligence, the Irish, the Malays, Singapore, College, University, Chemistry, Science, genetics, left-handedness, precocity, child prodigy, child genius, baby genius, adult genius, savant, gifted adults and gifted children in general. Thanks.)
