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.”

Yes, I just heard about it yesterday or at least the calls for boycotting the company. I agree with it. I’m looking into another site to raise funds.

what’s the issue with gofundme if y’all don’t mind me asking?

Online fundraising for the police officer who fatally shot an unarmed black teen in Missouri earlier this month has topped $200,000, surpassing money raised for the victim’s family.

A lot of donors left racist comments. ( go fund me deleted the comments)

Also go fund me gets 10% of donations raised. So they gaining 20,000 from that fundraiser. So of course they don’t remove it.

shego:

since gofundme refused to delete a page basically paying Darren Wilson for killing Michael Brown I really don’t feel right using it so instead I’ve created a youcaring fundraiser account
http://www.youcaring.com/other/help-a-single-mother-and-her-son-stay-in-their-home-/222722
please share this link any single way you can whether you’re tweeting it or putting it on Facebook or just reblogging this!!! anything can and will help us!!!

The young lady that was shot in the head by a police officer is still waiting to be interviewed by the police department
Ferguson Police claimed that 4 to 5 Black males conducted a drive by which resulted in a White woman being shot in the head. (Here, Here, Here)
(they’ve edited the articles to take out the white part and that she was killed hehehe)
Residents knew it was BS. 
Turns out Mya was shot by a police officer. The department forced surgeons to take the bullet out and took the bullet for “Ballistics”
Over a week later, she still has yet to be contacted by the department
Do not let her story go ignored

Hey everyone: for those of you who are wondering, the Westboro Baptist Church and gonna bandwagon on he death of Micheal Brown in order to promote even more hateful rhetoric. Please don’t let them do this. If you can, send the people of Ferguson support. If not, then signal boost this as a warning.

SIGNAL BOOST

They are going to catch an ass-whooping.

I hope and pray they come across some angry Bloods and Crips just looking for a reason to throw it all away.

they need to fucking be set on fire

The campaign is still up and people are still able to donate. They just “deleted” the comments

So basically all they’re doing is hiding the obvious racism involved, making it even harder for people to show how the existence of the fund is inherently bigoted in nature.

Amazing. Talk about pretending to work for one group while stabbing them in the back.

Yeah

So fyi to everyone, find another crowd funding website to use!
