All-girl engineer team invents solar-powered tent for the homeless
How 12 teens invented a solar-powered tent for the homeless
As Daniela Orozco picks off excess plastic bordering a 3D-printed box, she recalls how many homeless people she saw on her way to school when she was a high school freshman.
Just one.
Four years later, the number has multiplied. People live on a main thoroughfare near the school, at a nearby park, and below the off-ramps and bridges in her hometown of San Fernando, which is about 20 miles northwest of downtown Los Angeles. In the San Fernando Valley, homelessness increased 36% to 7,094 people last year, according to the Los Angeles Homeless Services Agency's annual count. Daniela and her friends wanted to help, but giving money wasn’t an option.
"Because we come from low-income families ourselves, we can't give them money," the high school senior says.
"We wanted to offer something besides money," her classmate, Veronica Gonzalez, chimes in.

'In Episode 39 Professor Fiamengo wonders whether women are right to undervalue themselves since they are accustomed to men doing most of the hard work.' -- "In a society that did not value women, would we really have so many studies worrying about the fact that women don't properly value themselves?" -- Your inferiority complex is exceeded only by your superiority complex.

YouTube -- Turd Flinging Monkey: How to Argue for Taking Women's Rights Away (TFM 42O)
"The 'far right' wants to have a higher birth rate...they see the demographic winter facing white people...and so: 'Taking women's rights away will raise your fertility rate; it's the only thing that works.' ... The 'centrists', the 'classical liberals', they're not going to be swayed by demographic winters, they are going to be swayed by an appeal to justice and balance...'Women's rights must be balanced by responsibilities. Therefore, if men are to be responsible for women [via welfare, concessions and privileges], they must have authority over women – you must have authority over that for which you are responsible. ... [We'll] create a balanced society – not an equal society – a balanced society that balances rights and responsibilities – and thus a just society.' ... Once you go to the 'far left', the male feminists and everyone like that – that is an extremely hard sell because the 'far left' guys just want their pee-pee touched...The best I can come up with is to offer them sex robots and artificial wombs, and hopefully they'll stop worshiping vagina... 'Hey, man, you don't want that purple-haired, fat feminist who is just going to accuse you of rape; have this beautiful Waifu who will love you for who you are.' That's the best I've got."

YouTube -- Turd Flinging Monkey: News: All Quiet In the Western Cunt (TFM 42O)
"Women don't think, they feel...women do not understand abstract concepts, they understand stories. And because of their natural solipsism, they conceptualize [!] stories and they personalize it to them. This is why the story of Marie Curie is a 'victory for all women', whereas a man can look at any of the hundreds of thousands of Nobel laureates who were men and not care because it wasn't them. This is because men have the ability to think abstractly...This is where men's out-group preference comes from whereas women have an in-group preference [Women like women more than men like men: http://www.purdue.edu/uns/html4ever/2004/041213.Goodwin.gender.html]. When a woman sees another woman, she sees herself. This is where women's in-group preference comes from. When a man sees a man, he sees another man – he doesn't see himself in other men, so [he doesn't] take credit for what other men do because they realize that wasn't me. But women take credit for what other women do because of their solipsism, honestly. So when they see a man like Donald Trump or Brett Kavanaugh, in their child-like brain, they think *all* men have all the power because *this* man has power. They don't see the men at the bottom; they don't see the trash collectors, they don't see the street sweepers, they don't see the homeless men at the bottom; all they see is the men at the very top and they conceptualize [!] that to *all* men."
