Teen's invention revolutionizes the battery

Imagine being able to charge your phone in 20 seconds.  Or having a battery that can survive 10,000 charges compared to today's 1,000 charges per battery.

This is all a reality now because of 18 year old Eesha Khare, a high school student in Saratoga, CA.  She created her invention because her cell phone was always losing charge.  So Eesha created a supercapacitator which is incredibly small, fast charging, and as she says, "It is also flexible, so it can be used in rollup displays and clothing and fabric."

Her invention earned her the "Intel Foundation Young Scientist Award" and $50,000.

7 year old with cancer runs 69 yards for a Nebraska touchdown

  • Published in Sports

Jack Hoffman, a 7 year old with cancer, was able to run with the big boys on Saturday.  Nebraska's football team was having their spring game and they asked the little man to suit up with them!

They arranged a play where he was handed the ball and was given an opening where he took down the field for a 69 yard touchdown!  The crowd of 60,000 went wild :)

“Jack is a fighter, a strong kid,” said star running back Rex Burkhead who is a friend of the little man and captain of Jack's support network, "Team Jack". “To see him run around and enjoy the Husker experience, it’s a dream come true, especially for kids in the state of Nebraska. For Jack to get down here and do it, I know it made his day.”
