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.
So here’s the thing.
I need oral surgery, badly. I have needed it for years, but in the past six months, the teeth have just gotten worse, and the pain is worse and more frequent.
The estimate for the cost of all services to be rendered is over
two thousand4600 dollars, even with the insurance plan I was able to purchase last year. We don’t have a lot of money, and things keep happening. My mom just had major surgery a month ago. She can’t even sleep in her bed yet, she’s having to sleep in a recliner, and that’s costing us, too.
Long story short, I need surgery badly and I could really use some help. I never wanted to make this post, but I’m pretty desperate.
If you can, please consider sparing a few dollars. I have a donation button on my blog, or you can donate here. Signal boosts are always appreciated.
When I grow up I want to be Ming-Na Wen.

fun fact: When you break things with your hands like that you have t break your fingers on purpose before so that they heal stronger. So basically this woman is so badass she broke her hands just to do this.
You asshat, you’re making it sound like she snaps her fingers in half.
Martial artists like Jackie Chan and Bruce Lee (and yes, fucking Ming-Na Wen, that beautiful badass) will build up their bone strength by repeatedly (and fairly gently) striking sand, gravel, wood and steel - this creates tons of microfractures in their bones (smaller than even a hairline fracture) so the bones will heal over again and make the bones stronger and denser with increased deposits of calcium.
This has to be done over long-ass periods of time, so the bones have time to heal, and none of the fractures expand into actual breaks.
Oh, and she’s doing precise-ass kicks in HIGH HEELS.

If you still support FCKH8 even after all the biphobia, fat phobia, sexism, transphobia and NOW trying to profit from Mike Brown’s death.
I got news for you: you’re a shitty activist
Today’s hobby is: Colouring
Colouring is something non-bi people can do instead of posting in the bi tags.
I don’t care if you’re doing it ~*as a joke*~ if you’re cis stop making posts like “SANDWICH IS MY GENDER REFER TO ME WITH LETTUCE/LETTUCESELF PRONOUNS IF YOU WON’T YOU’RE OPPRESSING ME” you’re mocking people who experience invalidation and misgendering almost every single day of their lives that isn’t funny and neither are you.
Cissexism is never a joke.
