Meet The 14-Year-Old Girl Who Developed A Low-Cost Water Purification System | FastCompany

The next generation of scientists is already hard at work solving our biggest problems. Take Deepika Kurup, a 14-year-old high school student from Nashua, New Hampshire.

Muslims in the United States have basically been divided into two groups the “peace-loving, “good” Muslim who are willing to be made into loyal citizens of the United States, as opposed to “bad” Muslims who critique the expansionist policies and imperial strategies of the United States under the guise of promoting democracy.

I’m not responsible for some perverted 45 year old dad lusting after me because I have a sparkly dress on and a big ass for a teenager. And if you think I am, then maybe you’re part of the problem.
