Meet The 14-Year-Old Girl Who Developed A Low-Cost Water Purification System | FastCompany
The next generation of scientists is already hard at work solving our biggest problems. Take Deepika Kurup, a 14-year-old high school student from Nashua, New Hampshire. After seeing children in India drinking dirty water from a stagnant pool, she decided, in her words, “to find a solution to the global water crisis.” And then she actually made some progress towards that goal, developing a solar-powered water purification system.

She is the future

Ever notice how it’s always brilliant teenagers making stuff that will actually solve the world’s worst problems, like what do adults even do?

THIS IS MY COUSIN!!!!!!

you know, i’m sure marvel has a really good reason why there isn’t a black widow movie yet…

im-so-confused-about-everything:

you know, black widow is a hard character to write and it’s not like they have a script just lying around-

image

well they can’t have had that for long-

image

it’s been such a long time though, i’m sure he doesn’t still want to do it-

image

well, it’s also not like there was ever another script in development before or anything-

image

but does she have any history of working well with Marvel and writing a great movie with a plot that seemed like a hard sell-

image

it’ll be hard to find a director though, that will have to bear the responsibility of directing the first Marvel female-led movie-

image

but is she a strong character who has been established in several other hugely successful/well-received movies and played by one of the most bankable actresses in the world-

image

then again, maybe she doesn’t even want to do a black widow movie-

image

wow, so what the fans have to say actually matters?! that’s great! so they might listen to us and-

image

but they do supposedly have movies planned up until 2028, we must at least be getting one black widow movie at some point-

image

but wait-

A tool to use for find Synonyms: Synonym Finder.

This is a great, unique little tool I found by browsing for writing resources. It’s name speaks for itself: it’s a synonym finder.

The site is clean cut, has soothing colors, and to-the point results for any word you look up.

For example, when I look up the word “romance,” I get this:

Synonyms: romance, romanticism
Definition: an exciting and mysterious quality (as of a heroic time or adventure)

Hypernyms: quality
Definition: an essential and distinguishing attribute of something or someone
Usage: the quality of mercy is not strained—Shakespeare”

I had no idea what a “hypernym” is. Apparently it’s a word with a more general meaning that a more specific word fall under. Like, color is a hypernym for green.

On the right corner there’s a button to make graphs! So you can trace each synonym from it’s root word, and see how far the other synonyms connect in comparison to others.

I really like it, so I’m going to definitely bookmark it on my writing tools list.

With some species, it’s not as cute

The fact that the inside of a black mamba’s mouth is ALL BLACK is both incredibly metal and incredibly terrifying.

But it is still cute.

blows my mind that women are considered shrill and whiny when all i have to do is insinuate that male feelings are not my #1 priority at all times and every indignant male in a 500 mile radius comes out of the woodwork to let me know how they feel
