A big, big shout-out to Carrie Ray and Meredith Holmes's second grade Creekview Elementary class for completing the Mensa For Kids Excellence in Reading program. We couldn't be more proud!

Carrie writes to us, "The reading challenge allowed our students the opportunity to have a year-long goal for which to strive. As a result their reading skills improved dramatically. Using these books as the mentor texts for my lesson plans as well as class read-alouds made the goal much more manageable."

Encourage the joy of reading in your home or classroom: http://www.mensaforkids.org/achieve/excellence-in-reading/

On the heels of Hostess' potential $2.3 billion IPO, Mensan David Leavitt shares the story behind the sweetest comeback in the history of ever — a revival of an American classic, the Twinkie.

Mensan John Sindall wants to save literature (and maybe the world) one comic book at a time

To get the word out, he shared with us some of the Q Collection Comic Book Preservation Project's most noteworthy titles.

Only known recording of basketball inventor James Naismith discovered, refutes idea that he wrote original 13 rules at once

"In the two-and-a-half-minute recording, which originally aired on Jan. 31, 1939, Naismith reminisced about the first basketball game, played in Massachusetts at what is now Springfield College by students forced inside by the winter weather. The inaugural contest became a melee, with little pretense to civility or resemblance to the game that basketball would become." 
A short radio interview on a New York station in 1939 may be the only existing recording of Naismith. It surfaced only during research for a book about the influence of religion on his life.

In celebration of the 150th anniversary of Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland, senior Bulletin columnist Richard Lederer contributes a tour-de-force essay on the indubitably Mensa-level Victorian author. And artist Paula Wilson Caziér’s accompanying illustrations make the trip down this richly creative rabbit hole all the more astounding.

Just. look. at. her. cover. art.

Is That a Colony of Conjoined Twins or a Single Sea Creature?

This gelatinous animal is actually a group of tiny clones, in which older members provide thrust through the water while younger ones steer.

Data visualizations have curbed cholera outbreaks, reduced wartime casualties and could have prevented the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster.

But to be effective wholesale, we need data to be over-the-counter.

IN TUMULTUOUS SEAS off the coast of California, the Marie sits suspended in the inky blackness of night, threatening to buckle as it hails the Coast Guard for help. As storms thrash the vessel, Mensan Louise Lang, her husband and her sister cling to life. Will they survive the night? Find out in this July Mensa Bulletin sneak preview.
The howling wind was shoving California into Arizona that night, and the sea off San Diego protested. “Mayday, mayday! This is the yacht…

Absolutely take the time to check out National Geographic's Ed Yong on the evolution of the eye.

"Nilsson uses his eyes to, among other things, gather information about the diversity of animal vision. But what about the box jelly? It is among the simplest of animals, just a gelatinous, pulsating blob with four trailing bundles of stinging tentacles. It doesn’t even have a proper brain—merely a ring of neurons running around its bell. What information could it possibly need?
To understand how animals see, look through their eyes.

18 presidential candidates (14 Republicans, 3 Democrats and one Green Party candidate) share the cover of this month's Mensa Bulletin, but all politicians are put on notice in this philosophical essay about the consequences of the “sophisticated” approach — the win-at-any-price strategy poisoning reasoned debate.

Coming soon to a mailbox (or inbox) near you.

+Newt Gingrich gave reasoned debate a try back in the 2012 cycle but was slimed by the circular firing squad as soon as he gained traction. No matter at this point; Obama has had seven years to import and strategically settle enough new voters to ensure the next President will be a Dem. Mitt Romney's inconvenient truth of the 47% will be even more impactful this time around. Enjoy the circus, it's all a CNN silly season show now.

Unsurprisingly, our Fiction Issue turned out to be quite eclectic — it's a mélange of humor, heroism, passion, nostalgia and imagination. We asked mixed-media artist Dan Hartman to provide us with a cover that reflected the entertaining mishmash readers could expect to find inside.

Dan delivered.

Inside the August Mensa Bulletin: Your answers to the question, "Do you ever feel like you have to hide your smarts?"

We asked. You delivered. And so did Mensan illustrator Jonathan Moore with this month's cover art. Who hasn't feigned reading a textbook in class but secretly had their favorite comic book stashed inside?

"Know-it-all" are bullied by pairs frecuently,...a different humor sense, perfectionism and sarcastic edge are a great factor here.
