Per the Civics Center, an organization for building youth civic engagement and voter participation, about 23,000 young people in #Georgia weren't old enough to vote in the general election this year, but will be eligible to vote in the runoff election for U.S. Senate on January 5, 2021 - if they register to vote by the deadline, December 7, 2020.

You can pre-register if you're 17 1/2 and will be 18 by January 5. Your vote can make the difference in 2 important elections. sos.ga.gov/index.php/Elections

"In early 2019, Ian Davis lost 4 of his digits on his left hand to a work accident. His insurance did not cover his prosthetic." So he made his own mechanical solution.

"The prosthetic Ian built has literally zero electricity need, it works with a set of elastic strings, rods, chains, nails a forearm rest, and whatnot."

We're living a #cyberpunk dystopia but, damn, engineers are amazing.

And then it's already too late," she tells NPR's All Things Considered. "You can see the regret, as they're struggling to breathe and it's finally hitting them that this is real. It makes me very sad."
