    U.S. passes Japan to lead supercomputer rankings

    The U.S. Energy Department's Sequoia supercomputer is the most powerful in the world, according to Top500. The last time the U.S. owned the supercomputing title was November 2010, when it was displaced by China's Tianhe-1A system, which then lost the top spot to Japan's K Computer. Sequoia, an IBM BlueGene/Q system featuring Power BQC 16-core processors, is at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory

    People who bitch about our education system seem unaware that ALL our students are measured with only the best of Japan, Germany, etc. They are not stupid enough to test all their children and put that data out....they glean their lower level kids and underachievers early on.....not us....it might hurt their feelings.
