I really like it when kid’s movies do this sort of thing and manage to make it seem natural and not at all forced to be like “edgy” or whatever.

and the parents’ associations got mad that the football player is gay…

Paranorman is an extremely important (and good) movie for so many reasons and I will be forever bitter that it did not get more recognition and was generally kind of overlooked because that pointless rehash of Frankenweenie came out at the same time.

Teenager from India invents device that can convert breath to speech

A high school student from India has invented a device that can convert a person’s breath into speech, to give millions of people around the world suffering from speech impediment a ‘voice’ for the first time.

Sixteen-year-old Arsh Shah Dilbagi has developed a new technology called ‘TALK’, which is a cheap and portable device to help people who are physically incapable of speaking express themselves. Right now, 1.4 percent of the world’s population has very limited or no speech, due to conditions such as Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), locked-in syndrome (LIS), Encephalopathy (SEM), Parkinson’s disease, and paralysis.

His name is Arsh Shah Dilbagi and he’s 16 years old. Gettin tired of sensationalized “mystery baby from a country where people are brown does a science thing!” articles. Use peoples names, don’t act so surprised when people of color are geniuses.
