Teen’s invention could charge your phone in 20 seconds

(Photo: Intel)

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.

Read the complete story.

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.
Remeeeemmmmmberrrrr

What about her name? I keep seeing this all over my dashboard, but I’ve never seen it with her name in the actual post and not just in the link.

Eesha Khare. That’s who she is. Not just “Nameless-brown-girl-who-made-something.”

EESHA KHARE KICKING ASS!

Sarah Robles is the strongest woman in America. She’s beaten every other competitor, male and female, to become the highest-ranked lifter in the USA. She’s an Olympian at 23. She could lift your entire nuclear family and throw them, and she lives on 400 bucks a month because for some mysterious reason she can’t get endorsement deals.

C’mon culture, stop being fucked up. Strength is beauty and Sarah Robles is a role model with no exposure.

Chasing your dream and being powerful = feminine as all fuck.

EDIT: There is now a fundraiser to help fund her journey to the Olympics!

I know this isn’t exactly on topic, but because we’ve had discussions on this blog before about societal beauty standards, what athletic women look like, the diversity in body types and that fat people can be athletic and healthy, and this story involves all of those, PLUS there’s a way to donate to her if you want to help, I’m reblogging this. :)

And also to remind people that even if you only want to draw “athletic” women to be superheroines, there’s a lot of different body types that athletes have.  Not every one looks like Maria Sharapova.

Don’t you just hate it when you’re astrally projecting yourself while summoning storms and an eagle gets all up in your business?
C’mon Natives y’all know what I’m talkin’ ‘bout.
