E-Cigs NOT A Gateway To Nicotine Addiction For Teens

E-Cigs NOT A Gateway To Nicotine Addiction For Teens | Teens Today | Scoop.it

This past September, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released preliminary data showing an increase in teen electronic cigarette experimentation, stating that twice as many kids had tried an electronic cigarette than reported a year prior.

 Since then, irate anti-smoking activists and various media outlets have spent their time decrying the electronic cigarette as a “gateway” to underage tobacco use.

A recent study, however, presents compelling evidence to support the contrary.

Teenager signs £60,000 contract to develop his own solar panel technology

Teenager signs £60,000 contract to develop his own solar panel technology | Teens Today | Scoop.it

Kelvin Doe is only 16, but in May he signed a $100,000 (£60,000) contract with Canadian firm Sierra WiFi to research, design, test and develop his own solar-panel technology, to be installed at 400 3G network sites around Sierra Leone. Not only is he leading the project, but the company is building him his own research lab. 

 

He's not daunted. Using only scrap components found in the garbage dumps in his hometown, the Dworzak Farm district of the capital Freetown, Doe has been inventing things since he was 11. By the age of 13 he was a fully self-taught electrical engineer, inventing a metal, soda and alkali battery that his neighbours use to light their homes reliably. At 14, he was playing local parties under the name DJ Focus, using mixers, amplifiers and microphones he built himself. "I believe if you focus, you can do an invention perfectly," he says. Soon he'd rigged up his own antenna, running a radio station out of his house and earning enough to pay for staff -- average age, 12. 

 

These inventions made him a finalist in NGO Global Minimum's 2012 Innovate Salone, attracting the attention of MIT Media Lab graduate student David Sengeh. He invited Doe to the 2012 World Maker Faire in New York, and then to become the youngest ever MIT Visiting Practitioners Program participant, learning from engineers there and presenting his work to students. In April, Doe received the Presidential Gold Medal Award from Sierra Leonean president Ernest Bai Koroma for his work.

fascinating insight from an ex-porn producer as to how pornography has changed and research showing how it changes the brain in negative ways. -Lon

Sean Pusol's curator insight, June 7, 2014 10:20 AM

This is interesting and just as much as porn is a hot topic sexy debate. What the real problem in society is , is violence not porn. There is no restriction for a child to pick up a video game and kill thousands of people then go to real life and do the same. However if someone sees some part of the Human God body its shameful and detested . People really really need to check the way they are wired and realize and learn we are conditioned to hate the most natural part of life. In all aspects of life, humans to animals to insects Sex is universal and necessary . Violence and weapons however are not and just lead to more and more death. If there is any more clear sign of the words of God THAT satan hates everything that is living and promotes death. Violence is accepted but sexuality which would ultimately lead to the creation of more life is detested . Dont believe the hype embrace your sexuality with respect and carefulness NEVER EMBRACE VIOLENCE.
