Solar energy that doesn’t block the view

A team of researchers at Michigan State University has developed a new type of solar concentrator that when placed over a window creates solar energy while allowing people to actually see through the window. It is called a transparent luminescent solar concentrator and can be used on buildings, cell phones and any other device that has a clear surface. And, according to Richard Lunt of MSU’s College of Engineering, the key word is “transparent.”

I suppose whenever you go through periods of transition, or in a way, it’s a very definite closing of a certain chapter of your life - I suppose those times are always going to be both very upsetting and also very exciting by the very nature because things are changing and you don’t know what’s going to happen.

White people really need to understand that Nicki Minaj is not for them. She’s not talking to them or living an experience that they experience even in a small percentage. She is not for them, she is no talking to them. 

All of these thinkpieces and policymic posts with white people (esp white women) acting like the Anaconda song and video  are the most sexist things to ever exist, these posts acting like Nicki is hurting black people (black women specifically) by shaking her ass and talking about sex, need to be erased from the internet.

It is not for you. She is not talking to you, white people. She is not talking about you.

Get over yourselves and quit making those ridiculous ass, concern-trolling “oh well hip hop is the most sexist genre ever and Nicki is as appropriative/exploitative as Katy/Miley/Madonna” posts and go educate yourself as to why Black women’s bodies and what they do with them are none of your damn business if you’re not a fucking black woman.
