Teen creates bio-plastic from banana peels

Sixteen-year-old Elif Bilgin of Turkey has developed a way to replace traditional petroleum-based plastic with banana peels.

The Turkish teen took home a US$50,000 prize for her project “Go Bananas!” Thursday after winning the second annual Scientific American Science in Action Award, associated with Google Science Fair.

“My project makes it possible to use banana peels, a waste material which is thrown away almost every day, in the electrical insulation of cables,” Bilgin said in a media statement.

“This is both an extremely nature-friendly and cheap process, which has the potential to decrease the amount of pollution created due to the use of plastics, which contain petroleum derivatives.”

Bilgin spent two years developing the bio-plastic, which does not decay. She said the process is so easy that it is possible to repeat at home, with special care taken for chemicals used in the production process.

In September, the teen will compete at Google’s California headquarters for the overall Google Science Fair prize for 15-to-16 year olds. She will also have access to a one-year mentorship.

Has anyone else noticed how many brilliant breakthroughs in science are coming from the minds of teenage girls the last few years? Between this story, the four girls in Nigeria who invented a generator that runs on urine, the California girl who invented a twenty-second cell phone charger… Who knows where we’d be today without the patriarchal interference of men, stealing or hiding the brilliance of women?

Our future is in the hands of teenage girls, and I for one feel really good about that.

When I was about 7 I wanted to invent a thing that purified water based off of fish gills. I went to the school library to do research like a good little inventor and one of my teachers asked me what I was doing, and then told me that there were some new barbie books in, and that I’d probably be better off with those.

Don’t forget the girl who invented a torch that’d light up just from the heat of your hands

basically everyone should stop s***ting on teenage girls because they do awesome things when you let them

or that one time a girl found the cure for cancer that we could be using in 15 years

But nah, girls and women just suck at math and science and have never invented anything worthwhile. Sure. Right.

The casts of Wicked, Rocky Horror, Les Misérables and the King and I making musical history in Melbourne, Australia with four musicals showing at once.

I think those are the 4 most diverse shows you could put on

I honestly can’t help but imagine the four shows playing at the exact same time, which would either create the greatest crossover ever, or get very chaotic very fast.

a podcast recorded with a $60 dollar mic in a harlem apartment about an openly queer radio host with a poc love interest as literally the most normal part of the show made it to be the number one most dowloaded podcast in all of america and if you don’t think that’s the tightest shit you can get out of my face

"I believe in Sherlock Holmes" 

"Yeah, well that won’t bring him back."

Let’s talk a little about this scene. Sherlock’s mind referenced certain people as he was dying, but upon review they weren’t random. They were those who had kept him alive for the last two years.

Molly, the inside man.

Mycroft, the confidant.

And, Anderson? Yes, and it’s beautiful… 

Anderson, the believer.

He kept Sherlock alive in the way we did. Not by being integral like Molly, or important like Mycroft, but by simply believing in him. By coming up with theories and starting a fan club all on the basis of believing that if anyone could defy death, it was Sherlock Holmes. So when Sherlock thought he was really going to die and that there was a minimal chance of survival - his mind palace also turned to Anderson. To the person who, despite all evidence to the contrary, believed he could survive.

we talk about how Dean raised Sammy and is kind of like his father but I think we missed the fact that Sam has become Dean’s mother

He’s always on him to eat right and take better care of himself. He does the laundry and covers Dean up when he passes out on top of the covers

Look at mama Sammy trying to get his boy to be healthy

Signal boost! Yes, can we please talk about this more?
