Teen’s invention could charge your phone in 20 seconds
Waiting hours for a cellphone to charge may become a thing of the past, thanks to an 18-year-old high-school student’s invention. She won a $50,000 prize Friday at an international science fair for creating an energy storage device that can be fully juiced in 20 to 30 seconds.

Everybody, remember this face.
Remember this name.
If this becomes a commonly used & highly lauded discovery, at some point a White guy is going to take credit, even if he has to word it like “Improved upon a previous…”
No no no
Fuck that guy.
Remember this brown girl.
there is nothing romantic about
- not knowing you’re beautiful
- loving someone until they learn to love themselves
please stop romanticizing low self esteem.
it’s one thing to love a person who happens to have low self esteem
it’s another thing to frame low self esteem as a desirable trait.

i understand what this post is saying totally but i don’t really think the second example is negative at all? if you look at the lyrics for the song they’re really positive and are about being supportive and loving towards someone who has felt a lot of pain. i don’t see that as negative. the one direction song does kind of frame insecurity and low self-esteem as “cute” and desirable but i’m not seeing that with ne-yo’s song.
The awkward “I don’t want to annoy you but I really like talking to you” stage.
I stay in this stage
WHO DID THIS
THIS IS NOT OKAY YOU SICK MONSTERS
”Women must give birth, men have to be tattooed,” says one Samoan tattoo song, expressing an age-old idea of equality between the sexes. Both must endure pain. In traditional Samoan society all young males had to be tattooed when they reached their late teens. Otherwise they were not considered real men. Nowadays, the custom is no longer general, but it is still associated with manhood and male prestige, and hugely popular.
Coming from someone who actually *reads* Nightwing comics unlike my brother (bythepowercosmic), a show based on Dick Grayson/Nightwing would have been way more logical than Green Arrow.
For starters, more people are familiar with Robin, and could have been introduced to Nightwing through that. The show wouldn’t even have to involve Batman since the Nightwing comics revolve around Dick working in Bludhaven alone. With the exception of Blockbuster, Nightwing’s main villain, there aren’t a whole lot of superpowered characters. And Nightwing fights crime with martial arts + acrobatics which is a little more believable than a dude in a Green hoodie running around with trick arrows.
I know the trend now is the Christopher Nolan-esque “NO SUPERPOWERS EVAR!!!!!” approach but if a network played Nightwing as a crime drama with the occasionally super elements I could see it really working.
