Teenager from India invents device that can convert breath to speech
A high school student from India has invented a device that can convert a person’s breath into speech, to give millions of people around the world suffering from speech impediment a ‘voice’ for the first time.
Sixteen-year-old Arsh Shah Dilbagi has developed a new technology called ‘TALK’, which is a cheap and portable device to help people who are physically incapable of speaking express themselves. Right now, 1.4 percent of the world’s population has very limited or no speech, due to conditions such as Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), locked-in syndrome (LIS), Encephalopathy (SEM), Parkinson’s disease, and paralysis.

I agree, but have long since had to force myself to accept that people are never logical when it comes to their kids - especially on TV. And while I wish this storyline would kind of just go away (I love Henry as a villain and enjoyed the twistyness of the reveal, but the actual reality of dealing with it and him being their son - not so much) I understand the motivations and feel like it makes logical/emotional sense there would be conflict - they lost their child, so they’ve already failed him once. They feel responsible that he ended up this way - even Ichabod for dying even though he didn’t exactly get a say in that. It’s not a good storyline for me (I hate these kinds of tropes) and it’s not something I look forward to actually seeing but I understand it and see the necessity of it playing itself out now that we’re here. 

What I’m not liking at ALL is that it’s going to put Abbie in the “hey lets kill your son” corner and Katrina in the “lets save him” camp - cause we all know Abbie’s right and that that is the logical, sensible thing to do here, but it still pits them against each other with Ichabod in the middle which just feels triangle-y and trite and just .. no. And it paints Abbie as sort of the bad guy, at least initially until it inevitably becomes clear there’s no saving him (and it might take a while because remember Henry is expert at manipulating people and decieving them and if he’s at all as smart as he seems he’ll “fake” redeemability long enough to fuel this conflict further) and I don’t like that. 

(Also I loathe the whole “surprise you have a kid” trope with a passion - it’s one of my absolute most hated tropes. The only reason I didn’t completely hate the reveal they had a son here is that it was yet another thing Katrina had lied about, but it still didn’t exactly make me happy.)

But, silver lining: It sounds to me like Crane will end up siding with Abbie - maybe not right away, and it wouldn’t exactly make character-sense if he did, but also not too late? It sounds like he’s actually realizing (Tom seems to, at least) that Katrina = bad decisions and lies and Abbie = truth and trustworthiness and that their role as witnesses will mean having to make tough choices like this. And considering how completely blindly devoted to Katrina’s lying ass he’s been so far, that’s progress in my book. I’m really really glad they’re dealing with their trust/honesty issues this season, I hope it’s also done thouroughly and without Katrina just vaguely handwaving it away again. 

Thing #72 that I'm looking forward to in SH season 2: Crane in a modern dance club full of modern club-goers and his reactions therein.

(Is there a full list of these things somewhere?) Yeah that’s gonna be really good too, I especially look forward to hearing his views on modern dance styles. I’m sorta into dance so I’ve seen a lot of movies and like basically half of them is about how “oh no that style of dance is SCANDALOUS”, so I’m expecting him to be a bit taken aback at least - we’ve come a loooong way from the formal balls of the 18th century. But hey, at least we know he’s used to seeing plenty of cleavage and bling, based on those flashbacks…

I have the biggest thing for timetravel hijinks in this sense, the whole “contrast and compare” aspect, so I’m really excited to see more of that. It’s not so much the “haha, look at him be confused and annoyed by our modern things” - it’s the whole big picture, trying to imagine yourself being in that different of a situation (from either direction) and reflecting on how much has changed in terms of technology and culture. (I mean social change too, but that moves slower and hasn’t gotten as far as I’d like, so it’s less fun to think about. But I do really hope they address the changes for women now that Katrina’s coming along - finally something she can be useful for! But I digress. Again. I should go to bed probably.) 

I’m pretty sure the waltz was still considered scandalous in England in Crane’s time. It was so indecent only the French did it. So I’m pretty sure modern club dancing would blow his fucking mind.

Exactly, I remember reading something about that in a fic and immediately picturing more modern dance styles too. The tango was completely scandalous at first, I think the foxtrot and/or quickstep too? There’s been so many stages of “omfg you can’t do that” and then they slowly turn conservative and non-controversial and just imagine skipping like all of those steps and just going straight to people grinding up on each other on the dancefloor - that truly is one of those areas where things really have changed so radically and it’s one he probably hasn’t been exposed to at all already. Unless he’s been watching a lot of TV I guess (appearantly he has watched Glee so…).

I really wish/hope Abbie’s already there and dancing her ass off when Ichabod and Nick show up cause I mean hey, we were promised Abbie broadening his horizons further…
