"They say that you’re supposed to stand up to bullies, but there’s not much you can do when the whole class is like that."
“Why do they make fun of you?”
“Let’s see. My weight, obviously. The fact that I read for fun. Mostly sci-fi and fantasy. I watch Nova. I don’t like sports. You know those loud, obnoxious kids you see hanging out in groups, screaming at people? That’s my whole school.”
“So what do they do to you?”

Portuguese designer Susana Soares has developed a device for detecting cancer and other serious diseases using trained bees. The bees are placed in a glass chamber into which the patient exhales; the bees fly into a smaller secondary chamber if they detect cancer.
Scientists have found that honey bees - Apis mellifera - have an extraordinary sense of smell that is more acute than that of a sniffer dog and can detect airborne molecules in the parts-per-trillion range.
Bees can be trained to detect specific chemical odours, including the biomarkers associated with diseases such as tuberculosis, lung, skin and pancreatic cancer.
this is insane!!!!!!!!
Do you even tennis?

Unlocking the Truth, a Brooklyn-based metal band of 12-year-old rockers, will teach you about bringing it hard every day. And also, how to shred.
“We’re waiting for their voices to mature,” says MANager Tracey Brickhouse (not to be confused with MOMager Annette Jackson). “We don’t want it to sound like a kiddie band.” Guitarist Malcolm Brickhouse, who writes most of the songs, says he has a lot to say about “relationships and their problems” and “standing up against bullying,” but he is going to vocal therapy and willing to wait it out until he can deliver the message in a way that does the music justice.
Part of being patient includes making sure everyone is on the same page. According to drummer Jarad Dawkins, “we had a singer from 2010 to 2012, but unfortunately we parted ways with him due to creative differences.”
These kids know what they’re doing. Me, I’m 24. I’ve got no idea. But these kids, they know.
