I think I’m getting coded « we’re safe » messages from my buddy in Zimbabwe. He had invited us over next March as he had some time off but we couldn’t make it as my wife can’t take time off during school year. Anywho, we had a bit of an email thread going on that which shifted to trying to plan something for next summer (likely in Europe), but the last reply was a few weeks old. Last night (during what was ostensibly a coup d’etat) I get an email from him picking up on a weeks old prior email where we had exchanged that we should try to set up a skype with the kids. No mention of the coup or anything just a « hey, sorry didn’t get back to you sooner, was kinda busy, a skype with the kids would be cool, how about Saturday » kinda thing. It was written during the « events » last night but no mention of it, not even in passing or even mentionnig that everyone was safe. He’s not political -makes a point of not being- but I assume email and social media is being monitored, especially from somebody that is a foreign lawyer in harare. I just replied playing dumb, not mentionning anything and said « yeah sure this weekend works ».

I figure this was probably a way to tell friends and family they were ok without referencing anything that could trigger monitoring software to pick up any key words or somewhat. I figure skype/facetime will be equally subject to surveillance. This should be interesting, talking pleasantries without anybody addressing the elephant in the room.

Why do you think the hidden message is they're safe? It could just as easily be they're not.

I doubt the Zimbabwean surveillance apparatus is as complex as you seem to think.

Lets skype on Saturday means we are in shit?

I think internal spying capabilities of that type of regime would be quite high.

Maybe the Skype call is a literal call for help, which he wouldn't be comfortable putting in an email.

I thought of that, but figured he’d press for something sooner than saturday. No sense of urgency. Also figure he’d use something safer than email like whatsapp.

Tracked his brother in Hungary. I’ll write him -and héll likely think it’s a bait from zim security services.

Mind you, there is littered nothing I can do. They are welcome to come here if they need out, but figure familybin europe would be much more obvious to reach out to. I think the most likely is he sent innocuous emails to friends and family to let them know they are ok without risking triggering key words -as a probably over-precaucious method. Mind you, even that would be an odd way as people would naturally write back « hey, omg, you guys ok???! ». Figure a whatsapp saying « hey, no worries, we’re all well » is better. Then again, maybe he was just watching cricket or something and didn’t know that anything was happening. :)

Sent his brother a fb message. I never meet or talked to his brother. I’m sure I sent what is an already nervous family into more anxiety by gettig these mysterious messages from foreigners (albeit, I’m pretty sure he’s heard of me and I did my best to explain).

Watch the brother not understand, over-react and do something stupid. All this because of Greg.

I just hope our UN goodwill ambassadors, the Mugabes, are okay.
Also, let's keep this thread about Galchenyuk's on-ice performance, development and value and NOT bring in his personal life or race.

Talked to the Zim folks. They are kinda nervous as the situation is volatile and whites/judiciary can be used as scapegoats by populists. So far, no anti-white rhetoric but they’ve started against the judiciary. They staying for now, but monitoring and whatnot. Who would have thought moving your family to zimbabwe could have been potentially problematic? Otherwise, we talked about vacations and whatnot.

My daughter had her neuropsychological evaluation part one today. Was good in that it confirmed most of what I thought. :-) She's quite smart and possibly has some attention / self regulation issues. Basically, she's a broad. The details are interesting, even if we don't have the full picture yet.

Today was interview and intelligence/cognitive skill testing. In two weeks attention/self regulation testing. The tests today measured 5 areas of "intelligence" and give a global score. She had uneven scores in the 5 areas, with some "above average but just short of gifted (which is top 2% of population) and one (analytical/reasoning) in which she scored "well above the gifted threshold". Don't know exact numbers, we'll get them in the final report in January I believe. She mentioned this because it helps explain other stuff we were telling her. She said most of the gifted scores she gets are of this heterogeneous variety as the homogeneous types tend to be even keel (not have issues that prompt parents to come in for an evaluation). She says the high analytical/reasoning score explains the existential type questions and concerns she constantly exhibits and can possibly also explain the character intensities (good and bad intensities that she exhibits). Some kids like this (with higher range scores in one/more area) will have "overexcitabilities" and basically be very sensitive to/process differently some kinds of sensory input -which can overwhelm them and which they have difficulty controlling. During testing, she also picked up on nervousness (even when she wasn't having difficulty) and some fidgetiness. I think this is also right and the difficulty will be distinguishing what comes from anxiety, what comes from oversensitivity and what comes from a neurological deficit in self regulation. The tests in two weeks should give more clarity on this.

Basically, generally smart girl with however an imbalance in ability as the reasoning/analytical side dominates the others and that can lead to weirdo behaviour (I believe I may have exhibited some of that propensity towards over-analysis/existential concerns on this very site -I think I'm quite similar to her). However, she also has real impulsivity and self-regulation issues. Hard to tell if it is from a neurological cause as she also is anxious and is very sensitive (which may cause similar behaviour). Next tests should tell this appart better. I personally (based in part on my own self), think there is some level of neurological weakness in self regulation that is masked by being generally smart and that tension may cause some anxiety/self-doubt.

Also meet this fascinating kid there. Mom was very nice from the same neighbourhood as us (must be something in the air) and we chatted quite a bit. Her kid (who I think is clearly autistic) is obsessed by electricity and plumbing. He's 5. That's all he thinks about. He constantly takes all toys and other home electronics appart and puts them back together. He builds water pumps, lifts and other devices. Saw it in action. Kid, that has very little visual contact with people and seems very reclusive, went to the bathroom and I heard him commenting on the plumping and electrical wiring in the ceiling. A 5 year old. Obsessed by plumbing and electricity. Yeah.

You should ask that kid if he knows anything about leaky basements...my guess is the kid has a dad like Claw who forces him to climb inside kitchen cupboards to do the plumbing...

I asked the mom if the dad works in those fields, she said no. She said he’s obsessed, it’s all he thinks/talks about. Saw it myself. Remarkable. A 5 year old obsessed with electricity and plumbing. He seemed clearly autistic. Assburgers, probably. She said her dad gave him plumbing pipes that he cut up and connectors and it was like the best gift ever. The mom seemed chill about it, which was pretty cool.

A plumbing savant.

This is nature's way of dealing with the hoardes of millenials thinking they can be artists instead of doing something actually useful for the world. :danson:

Glad to hear your daughter has nothing serious Doge. I wish I could afford a couple grand for a personality test one day. :danson:

I’m not an autism specialist, but I can still play one on the internets. The mom said he was not doing well in school (kindergarten) and she was consulting because she was worried about 1st grade (also because he had ripped out live wiring in the house!). It’s a spectrum, but what you tend to get with the overly analytical is gross overfocus on a topic of interest and gross underdevelopment of just about anything else (including, and I understand this to be key to autism, an absence of ability to read and interract normally with other people). I think the eldest son of my buddy in zimbabwe is like this. That kid is obsessed with history and geopolitics. He seems to be in love with me, I think because I’m from Canada (which to him is exotic as hell) and I answer all his question and play to his interest. But when you first meet him you think he’s a genius as he has deep knowledge and asks good questions on the subject matter. But you quickly notice extreme literalness (you so much as make a slight word play or metaphor and you've lost him completely) and this overwhelming tendency to always go back to his subject of interest. It’s like nothing else exists in the world. The knowledge also seems kinda rote and not something really transposed into other areas or problem solving ability. He also had great difficulty in other subject matters (including severe difficulty in reading and writting skills). Then there is the lack of eye contact, ridgidness, etc.

So, yeah, an engineer.

We've got a couple of guys at work who are probably on the spectrum. Terrific programmers.
