A Norwegian 🇳🇴 tent cloth company, Tarpon Solar, has teamed up with a Swedish 🇸🇪 solar panel company, Midsummer AB, to produce a lightweight, flexible cloth that can be used for tents or for sun ☉ shades. The process laminates solar cells right onto the fabric, using Midsummer’s copper-indium-gallium-diselenide thin-film photovoltaic panels.
The panels are made without using cadmium, a toxic 😷 chemical used in many thin-film solar panels. This process recently won first prize 🏆 at the Technology and Innovation Competition MTI Technology Award. The resulting fabric is relatively lightweight, flexible, and sturdy. It can be used to generate electricity ⚡ at camping 🏕 sites or at any other temporary shelter.
What uses can you imagine for this solar paneled fabric? Tell us about it in the comments.
Kannst du dich erinnern wer du warst, bevor die Welt dir erzählt hat wer du sein solltest? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Uns wird von klein auf erzählt realistisch zu bleiben und keine besonderen Wünsche oder Träume zu haben. Wir passen sie unserem Verdienst an, anstatt den Verdienst an die Träume an zu passen. ⠀
Als Kind will man Beispielsweise Astronaut oder Pilot werden. Warum damit aufhören? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Denkst du nicht auch viel lieber darüber nach welche Orte auf der Welt du noch sehen willst, als an das nächste Projekt, um vielleicht eine Lohnstufe auf zu steigen? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Was bringt es dir "realistisch zu bleiben❓
Rein gar nichts❗
Denke groß und arbeite an deinen Träumen. Jedes Mal wenn du ihnen näher kommst, freust du dich. Im Gegensatz dazu, hast du durch eine Beförderung noch mehr Verantwortung und Arbeit. ⠀
Ich befand mich in dieser Situation und habe mich fürs groß Denken entschieden. Was wirst du tun?

Although a number of inventions have been designed to track our health in various ways, nothing has really been set in stone 💎. Researchers from the Tufts University School of Engineering have designed a teeny tiny sensor that can track various substances going into the body.
The sensor is made of up three layers and can be attached to a tooth 😀, skin or any other surface. It detects different substances via the frequency of radio 📻 waves, tracking how much is being put into the body and sending this information 📊 to a mobile device 📱. It currently works with things like glucose 🍬, alcohol 🍷, and salt, but can be modified to track almost anything.
Would you be up for technology to tell you how healthy you are?
What’s holding you back? Today is a great day to start something.

What is success? •
I’ve been grappling with this concept for years, I even wrote my dissertation in university about the concept of success and how different people define it.
For a while I thought success was about money, then for a while I thought it was about status. But I was really wrong on both counts, unless of course status and money are the things you actually want.
Everyone is going to have a different concept of success, there really is no blue print, it’s more about knowing yourself and knowing what aspect of life is going to fulfil you.
For me, it’s about a lot of different things. Yeah of course I want money, like a lot of people, yes I want to be of service, like a lot of people. But the real thing I want is freedom. I’d sacrifice both of those for freedom, but I get the feeling I’ll need all 3.
Are you going out of your #confortzone?
I try to do it as much as possible, even though it sometimes takes me a long time to do it.
Last time, I went out of my confort zone was last month: I decided to do something I wanted to do for years without doing it. I created my youtube channel to share my #vegan lifestyle as a #mother.
My goal is to help people understand how to be vegan the easy way. No judgment, no radicalism. Just being open about how I do it day after day.
So happy I did it! I am learning from myself video after video, I am growing as a person with the help of my partner @leandrobueno69.#nevertoolatetostart#challengeyourself#youtuber#veganlife#veganfood#veganmom#healthyfood
The last 2 days have been very tiring for me both personally and professionally. It gets hard when you hear a no wherever your ear turns.
But the nos keep me on the edge. I know if I don't give my best then a no is what I will get to hear.
I'm honestly very tired today, physically and emotionally.
But I'll persist

⚡⚡Why you should focus on what YOU are doing ⚡⚡ (not on what your competitors, people on social media, your neighbors or anyone else is doing...)
One of my favorite things that I ever heard Oprah Winfrey talk about was all of the competition that came up while she had her top-rated daytime talk show. I want to share it all with you here -- it's that good!
@oprah: "Every time it would happen I would say to my team, 'Well, doesn't matter,' because every season somebody else was coming out.
One talk show, two talk shows, three talk shows, there have been over a 100 talk shows since we started.
But every time I would feel like, all right, gotta step up our game. Gotta step up our game.
The way you step up your game is not to worry about the other guy in any situation 'cause you can't control the other guy. You cannot control the other guy.
YOU ONLY HAVE CONTROL OVER YOURSELF.
So it's like running a race....
The energy that it takes to look back and see where the other guys are takes energy away from you and if they're too close, scares you.
So that's what I would say to my team all the time, 'Don't waste your time in the race looking back to see where the other guy is or what the other guy's doing. It's not about the other guy, it's about what can you do.
You just need to run that race as hard as you can. You need to give it everything you've got all the time for yourself. For yourself.' "
Belief. We all believe in something.
And the greatest gift given to me (by my parents- warm S/O to them) is the belief in myself.
The first step to achieving something is believing it's possible because that drives you to relentlessly pursue it. I've had a really fulfilling past year & I owe all my small achievements to the people who believed in me💕
So this is a PSA to remember that we owe it to ourselves to surround ourselves with people who believe in us💫
(ideally more than we believe in ourselves)
Priorities are so important
What I’ve learned along the way is not to sacrifice the very thing you’re trying to achieve 🙌🏼💞🥂
