We have all heard about teenagers as they are the targets of each older generation on the following areas……….LAZY, DIM, SLOW, and you can fill in the rest.
So I am sure you might find these teens to be very special……..Kyle Jones , 17, of Florida might have found a cure for colon cancer.
Eesha Khare, an 18-year-old high school student invents super charger/battery…….can you image the implications of this one.
15-year-old Jack Andraka from Maryland invented a way to detect for pancreatic cancer that can catch it in early stages but it gets better it also can be used for ovarian and lung cancer.
So, if you are out and about dissing the kids just remember some of these and be thankful they were allowed critical thinking skills and a pathway to science.
All right for those of you who are sky watchers, the annular eclipse also known as the ring-shaped solar eclipse will be occurring on Thursday and Friday (May 9th and 10th). Be sure to get your camera ready and remember to protect your eyes by not looking directly at the sun.
Here are some past photos of the event.

Queen: What a WUSS.

Groundhog day is not exactly scientific. In fact it is stated that Phil has been wrong more than right so stick with the meteorologists, but hey it is great fun and people enjoy themselves as it is just an event that is meant to be shared with friends and family.
