Amazing Science Ideas & Solutions at FortisTCI Science Fair TCI Police looking for candy & electricity thieves Providenciales, 04 Feb 2016 – The reviews were all the rave for the 15 schools which participated in the 7th Annual Ministry of Education Science Fair sponsored by FortisTCI. Holy Family Academy entered in both the high school and primary school divisions and is always an impressive candidate in the show; this year the high school collected aluminum cans, melted them down and created jewelry, accessories and art. Dr. Malcolm was wowed. “Okay we have so much waste on the side of the road, I believe we should start collecting our cans and take them to Holy Family Academy so that they canuse it and probably sell this grat product; I like what you did with the glitter.”Finally, at least in recent years, a robot. Maranatha Academy did not just present any old robot, theirs, called an Eco-droid would collect garbage and pointed to the future for keeping the TCI clean.“The basic concept is that it will be autonomously controlled by an ultrasonic sensor that senses whatever is in front of it and with the arm attached would be able to pick it up and carry it to the nearest garbage via a GPS system.”Beauty was top of mind for Clement Howell High and Community Christian Academy, both schools used a common plant to create the answer to acne, blemishes and younger, healthier skin. CHHS used Aloe. Dee to CHHS: Did you test this on any human being?“Yes we did, here are the results. This is a day after using the product as you can see, her skin tone got brighter…Dee to CHHS: Did you Photoshop that?“No! (laughter) You can see, some of the blemishes from acne are gone.”Community Christian used Neem. “The Neem soap we have here can do many things, it helps acne by tightening the skin and making the pores smaller and can stop blemishes. If you turn it into gel, you can rub it on your skin.”And as for best use of food… it had to be the primary schoolers of Oseta Jolly; forget about having to dispose of cups and plates after a party, you can now just eat them because of this group, they can be made of JELLO.“Because we used gelatin, gelatin does not have a flavor but after it is refrigerated and is in water it gets just hard and it helps things to stand up. We used the JELLO for it to have flavor, and for it to smell nice.”Spicy food is good, not just to the taste for so many… but now for the heart and it even cuts fat according to the International School.“If you eat more spicy food, you get a process called thermogenesis which makes your cells hotter and burns energy, then you can lose weight and you can reduce the chance of getting a heart attack or stroke.”A water quality test from HJ Robinson High, a recycling of sewer water by Precious Treasures, an experiment to test the potency of every day liquids by Enid Capron, how sea water can be used as energy by both Raymond Gardiner High and TCIPS and a propane and electricity free stove, just in time for hurricane season by Marjorie Basden High were among the contenders at the Science Fair which was held at the Gus Lightbourne Gym on Thursday; it is one of the finale highlights of Education Week in the country.

Hubble captured the glamor shot while imaging around 145 nearby disk galaxies. “This study aimed to help astronomers better understand the relationship between the black holes that lurk at the cores of galaxies like these, and the rugby-ball-shaped bulge of stars, gas and dust at the galaxy’s center,” ESA said.This close-up view of a spiral galaxy offers a nice counterpoint to another Hubble image released this week: the Hubble Legacy Field, a view of the distant universe that encompasses around 265,000 galaxies. They may look very different, but they both have the power to stir the human soul. $59 at eBay HP Laptop 15t Value: $520 (save $780) The problem with most entry-level laptops: They come with mechanical hard drives. That makes for a mighty slow Windows experience. This Lenovo model features a 128GB solid-state drive, so it should be pretty quick to boot and load software, even with its basic processor. Plus, it has a DVD-burner! That’s not something you see in many modern laptops, especially at this price.

At $59, this is within a buck of the best price we’ve seen. It lists for $129 and sells elsewhere in the $89-to-$99 range.This is one item of many available as part of eBay’s Labor Day Sale (which, at this writing, doesn’t specifically mention Labor Day, but that’s how it was pitched to us). Read Lenovo Smart Clock review Though not technically a Labor Day sale, it’s happening during Labor Day sale season — and it’s too good not to share. Nationwide Distributors, via Google Express, has just about the best AirPods deal we’ve seen (when you apply promo code ZBEDWZ at checkout). This is for the second-gen AirPods with the wireless charging case. Can’t imagine these will last long at this price, so if you’re interested, act fast. 7 Best Buy NGC2903 is a very photogenic spiral galaxy. ESA/Hubble & NASA, L. Ho et al. Next time you glance up at the constellation Leo draped across the night sky, think about how there’s so much more going on there than the few twinkly stars we can see with the naked eye. NASA and the European Space Agency shared a Hubble Space Telescope image this week of galaxy NGC 2903. It’s a poster child of a spiral galaxy that’s located in Leo the lion. Look at its graceful curving arms and glowing center. It’s the Idris Elba of galaxies. I would pay good money to see NGC 2903: The Movie. ESA is also in love with spiral galaxies, waxing poetic on their features: “These limelight-hogging celestial objects combine whirling, pinwheeling arms with scatterings of sparkling stars, glowing bursts of gas, and dark, weaving lanes of cosmic dust, creating truly awesome scenes.” Read the Rylo camera preview Tidal 3-month family subscription: $5.99 (save $54) $999 Turo: Save $30 on any car rental $90 at Daily Steals via Google Express Read DJI Osmo Action preview Angela Lang/CNET Tags Sprint $299 at Amazon Hubble looks to space Recently updated to include digital-photo-frame capabilities, the Lenovo Smart Clock brings Google Assistant goodness to your nightstand.

Sarah Tew/CNET CNET may get a commission from retail offers. Chris Monroe/CNET DJI Osmo Action camera: $261 (save $89) Spotify and most other streaming services rely on compressed audio, which robs the listener of full fidelity. Enter Tidal, the only “major” service that delivers lossless audio — meaning at least on par with CD quality, if not better. Want to see (er, hear) the difference for yourself? Grab this excellent extended trial while you can. It’s just $6 for three months, and it’s good for up to six listeners. Free Echo Dot with an Insignia or Toshiba TV (save $50) The Cheapskate Hubble wows with stunning space images Apple iPhone XS An Echo Dot makes a fine match for any Fire edition TV, because you can use the latter to say things like, “Alexa, turn on the TV.” Right now, the 24-inch Insignia Fire TV Edition starts at just $100, while the 32-inch Toshiba Fire TV Editions is on sale for $130. Just add any Fire TV Edition to your cart, then add a third-gen Echo Dot, and presto: The latter is free.

I’ve used it many times and found it a great alternative to traditional car-rental services — in part because you get to choose exactly the vehicle you want (not just, say, “midsize”) and in part because you can often do pickup and dropoff right outside baggage claim.Between now and Sept. 1, the first 300 people to check out can get $30 off any Turo rental with promo code LDW30. 0 Best laptops for college students: We’ve got an affordable laptop for every student. Best live TV streaming services: Ditch your cable company but keep the live channels and DVR. I thought this might be a mistake, but, no, the weirdly named HP Laptop 15t Value is indeed quite the value at this price. Specs include an Intel Core i7 processor, 12GB of RAM, a 256GB solid-state drive and a 15.6-inch display. However, I strongly recommend paying an extra $50 to upgrade that display to FHD (1,920×1,080), because you’re not likely to be happy with the native 1,366×768 resolution.

Wait — no, I’m not. As much as I respect the original intent of the holiday (which became official back in 1894), to most of us, it’s just a bonus day off — one that’s blissfully tacked onto a weekend. So, yeah, stores; go ahead, run your sales. I’m listening. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Labor Day doesn’t bring out bargains to compete with the likes of Black Friday (which will be here before you know it), but there are definitely some sales worth your time.For example:We’ve rounded up the best Labor Day mattress deals.We’ve also gathered the best Labor Day laptop deals at Best Buy.The 2019 Vizio P Series Quantum is back under $999.Be sure to check out Amazon’s roughly three dozen Labor Day deals on TVs and audio. Google Express is having a big sale as well, one that includes deals on game consoles, AirPods, iPhones, laptops and more.Below I’ve rounded up a handful of individual items I consider to be the cream of the crop, followed by a handy reference guide to other Labor Day sales. Keep in mind, of course, that products may sell out at any time, even if the sale itself is still running.

By Jamesia Downer, AFRO InternMany people talk about change in their communities, but what does that look like? Where do they start? Is it a better school, lower crime rates, or adequate housing? The answer may vary depending on the needs of your community and those who make that community.For Margaret Powell advancing her community started with the children. The retired elementary school teacher was born, raised and educated in Baltimore. I was while teaching at Matthew A. Henderson Elementary School, Powell realized that “the school is the community and the community is the school.”<span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span>Powell took the platform she was given as a teacher to become an advocate for the children of her community. She founded the Imani-Ivy Free Boarding House, Saturday School at Heaven’s Gate Eatery and other foundations to make sure students have what they need to thrive inside and outside of the classroom. In collaboration with Thriving Communities Collaborate (TCC), Powell was able to speak to a group of individuals excited to see their community thrive. Providing these individuals with the inspiration of how to make a better Baltimore. Powell facilitated open dialogue among concerned citizens earlier this week at Center for Urban Families, she was there to inspire others to work in their community. She led open conversations about What is a community and what encompasses a thriving community. Giving all the individuals there a place to say how they felt a community can become a thriving one.Through her various works, Mrs. Powell has impacted her community and is now inspiring others to do the same. TCC host events like this monthly for community members to engage in making their community better but also making themselves better. For the next event, check out TCC on facebook (@tccbaltimore) or their website.
