Stock tips

About a month ago, I was listening to a medical news story and heard about a material for some kind of stent that was used on a man who had heart issues and I immediately picked up that the use of biodegradable polymers and reabsorbable polystatins were going to be the hot new transferable use of material in other industries as well. 

The ingredients and uses of these things are going to be helpful somehow in the development of an eco-friendly, non-petroleum based replacement for plastics in the next four or five years. 

In 2009, I also made a documented prediction about the use of nano tech (at the time still a radical frontier technology) and how it too would be used in non-invasive ways to revolutionize the way we use things. That too appears to be coming true as well. Essentially, not all nanotech is bad is what I was saying in the prediction:

Well lo and behold do I find this girl genius less than four years after my prediction talking about an invention she made that involves a new polymer made using nano materials that allow for more cell phone storage and an ability to keep the phone charged longer. While the polymer was not necessarily ecologically minded or driven, it was interesting that this invention involved the use of both nano materials to literally create a new form of polymer that, according to my prediction, assisted with microchips in the "other features and accommodations" "in the near future" "as pertains to all things convenient and portable".

I would definitely call improvements in cell phone tech, and anything connected to motherboards, chipping, and nano tech,  connected to "all things convenient and portable".

Whereas "One word: Plastics" was the catch phrase in the 1960s hit film The Graduate, it seems a new catch phrase might be in order here. And while Hydrogenated TiO2-Polyaniline Nanorods doesn't exactly trip off the tongue, it might be worthwhile to pay attention to this child genius's work as well as the slew of other brilliant kids inventing things lately. They are all onto something nothing short of miraculous.

Other promising teen inventors with world-changing implications embedded in their work are becoming too numerous to count at this point (2011, 2012 and 2013 have kind of been bonanza years for teen - read: crystal children- inventors), but here's another kid I hope we see more of in the long run. Keep your eye on Boyan Slat as well, he's going places!
