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. 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.”
"One might ask himself why: why revive Funny Girl, an iconic show with an iconic star? Why, when there are so many wonderful new playwrights, would Sidney Greene decide to dust off this tired old girl of a play? Frankly, I can only come up with a single answer and it’s Rachel Berry. It takes chutzpah to be willing to step into a great one’s equally great steps and make Fanny your own. Rachel has plenty of that, clearly, but she also has something else in spades: talent, mountains of it. I’m not talking about about the Appalachians, Berry is the Alps. I’m sure I could find fault in this green actress’ performance but shame on anyone who’d have the audacity to criticize the bold mistakes of a supernova exploding before our eyes. I just pray to God that no one saw me secretly wiping my tears during her show-stopping ‘Who Are You Now.’ I don’t know where inside that small frame Berry went to find the emotion she delivered with that song but she melted the icy hearts. I hope that this show runs for a long time, not because anyone needs to see ‘Don’t Rain on My Parade’ again, but because I want to enjoy Rachel Berry as she is now, and I know I’ll be going back for second time to enjoy her in her Broadway premiere." - The New York Times Review of Funny Girl
