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.

remember way back in 2006 when the wii first came out and then the entirety of the world forgot how to hold onto something with a firm grasp so much that nintendo had to make a shock absorbing condom just so that tvs wouldnt get destroyed when people would end up sending this thing flying at their tvs at 900 miles per hour

You should be aware that that article you reblogged about the black getting shot for a toy gun is severely twisted. He had a BB GUN and was brandishing it at people like a real weapon. Someone called the cops because they though there was a crazy person with a gun. The cops told him to drop, he didn't, they opened fire.

BOY HOWDY lets go through this one step at a time

"brandishing it like a real weapon" according to multiple witnesses at no point did john crawford, age 21, the man who was shot, actually point the barrel of the gun at anyone in the store, or even wave it around. other shoppers in the area walked by with no reaction to the toy gun at all,  and in accordance with ohios open carry law, its legal for anyone to carry a firearm into businesses without concealment, which has been done many time without incident

"someone called the cops because they though there was a crazy person with a gun" ronald richie, the person who called the police and claims crawford was waving the gun around, has actually CHANGED HIS STORY upon seeing the actual surveillance video of the shooting, which was been denied to the public, going from “he was a loaded rifle, and hes loading it, he definitely pointed it at people” to insisting that he was “waving it around”

"the cops told him to drop, he didnt" crawfords attorney micheal wright HAS seen the surveillance footage, and it showed that the police appeared to have gunned him down on sight - crawford never reached for the police, tried to flee, or raised the gun - in FACT, he was talking to his girlfriend at the time, and likely didnt even know what was happening until they opened fire

if youre willing to accept the reports of police after they murdered another innocent black man at face value without double checking facts to confirm your own prejudice, if you really think that ronald richie was justified in their actions and that crawford was NOT another victim of hatred and racism, then you need to get your head out of your ass

A Texas man is under arrest after gunning down a SWAT team member as the officer quietly tried to climb in through the apartment’s window during predawn hours.
Police State USAreports  that a resident fatally shot Detective Charles “Chuck” Dinwiddie as the officer climbed in through a ground level window as part of a “no knock” raid. The officers were there due to suspicion that residents were in possession of controlled substances.
Upon hearing a noise, resident Marvin Louis Guy, 50, opened fire on the unidentified officers, shooting three others as well, although only one fatally.
Guy is currently being held on capital murder charges in connection with Dinwiddie’s death, even though it’s unclear how Guy was supposed to know that the men crawling in through the window were police officers since they hadn’t identified themselves.
The evidence sheet lists a laptop, a safe, a pistol, and a glass pipe, but no drugs were found. Given the evidence, why did police deem it necessary to seek a “no knock” warrant and why did a judge sign off on it?
Very little is known about Mr. Guy, but Dinwiddie left behind two children, all because his SWAT team went creeping into a home where the residents didn’t even have any drugs. Is that the best use of law enforcement tax dollars?
Guy’s bond has been set at $3 million dollars.

Thank you lieutenantnorals!

The dude was legitimately scared for his life because someone was sneaking into his apartment in the early morning. The cops are the ones who messed up here. No-knock warrants are really shitty.

so according to the criminal justice system, either you’re supposed to magically know when the person trying to break into your house is a cop looking for drugs that you don’t have, or you’re not allowed to shoot someone who’s trying to break into your house? oh wait, i forgot only white people are allowed to fatally shoot someone in this country without facing criminal penalties

Very much this. Our “justice” system is very much about maintaining the status quo that Power has created in this country.

If someone was sneaking into my house in the early hours of the morning I’d fucking shoot. They were literally sneaking into his home, of course he would defend himself from intruders. This is so fucked up.
