The Chinese American (Ch-Am) community is the most promising DOMESTIC source of future scientists for Chemistry, Math and Physics.
The pictures below show that ChAms, only 2% of nation's population, played at least a 75% role in chemistry, mathematics and physics in representing America in the International Olympiad for high school students.
Featuring the U.S. team preparing for the International Physics Olympiad.
The picture shows those who scored in the top 20 in the US National Physics Olympiad; 80% of them are Chinese Americans judging from the last names.
The US physics team also did well in the International Physics Olympiad, though not quite as splendidly as our chemistry or math teams. Our physics team averages about 1 Gold and 1 Silver each year, over the last 40 years
2018 US Team Takes First in International Math Olympiad, under head coach Po-Shen Loh, Carnegie Mellon University. The US team was FIRST in 3 of the last 4 contests.
Drafting a 2nd letter to FBI Director Wray
Dir. Wray has not replied to my letter to him of 3 weeks ago. Consequently, I begin to write to US Congressional Delegates and presidential candidates informing them of the grave mistake that Wray is making to damage the long-term interests of the US. At the same time, I continue to write Wray. My 2nd letter will contain the above info. I'll ask Wray, "What if your totalitarian "whole-of-society approach" profiling against scientists of Chinese origin would drive these young ChAm science talents from science or even from the US?"
I'll also ask,
Director Wray, do you want to destroy the most promising
DOMESTIC source of future scientists for chemistry, math and physics?
just joined a list 12 other universities to send out a campus-wide communication to stress the importance of protecting innocent international scientists from political pressure generated by people like FBI Director Wray. We thank Alice Huang, EF Vice President & former
80-20 has the responsibility to warn you early about approaching political danger. See the 8 explicit dire warnings issued by EF in the last 17 months, shown below.
YOU need to hear the warnings & respond immediately to deter the oppressors from treading on us, and strengthen our defense.
How to respond cost-effectively? Money talks. If half of the estimated 100,000 AsAms, who have read EF's warnings, would each have sent in $100, EF's war chest would have been boosted by $5 million* during those few months. Politicians would have been impressed to no end; ceased their aggressive policy against us & perhaps seek to befriend us.
Result: Problem solved. It's that simple. You wouldn't have to worry about being an innocent victim any more. 80-20's war chest would be $5 million*larger, which would indeed indirectly protect you further. America becomes a more perfect union. It's a win-win-win.
*Note (1) EF Board Members don't benefit from a large war chest. You do; and
(2) Endowment for the Jewish AIPAC org. is $140 million; its annual
expenditure is $60 million. So EF has a long way to go to catch up.
The Real Situation
The real world situation is disappointing at first. However, 80-20 deeply believes that its supporters are highly educated, very smart and learn quickly.That is why EF is reviewing the past, detailed below, with you.
Mission accomplished THIS time. Will EF be as successful the next time? My guess is "NO!" unless each of us will do our share to forge unity within the AsAm community, before it is too late. Things will likely get tougher.
Respond to this Call To Action to lessen your chance of being a victim!
[UC, Berkeley, Stanford, U of MI and UC, Davis were the four which started
the campus wide communication to protect scientists of Chinese origin. Since then,8 other universities have joined. They are U DE, Princeton, Rice, Yale, U MD, Case Western Reserve, Columbia, and MIT. We need more.]
We learn from our mistakes and move on to be smarter and stronger. Beware: we are a very small minority; we can't afford too many mistakes.
