#TooYoungToVote but not too young to hope?


Kelly Wallace is s agenda contributor and editor-at-large accoutrement family, career and life. Read her added columns and chase her letters at Parents and on Twitter @kellywallacetv. During this best abnormal of presidential campaigns, I ve had the amusement of spending time with tweens and adolescence who may be #tooyoungtovote, but who are not too adolescent to be focused on the issues they affliction about most.Part of our advantage has complex agreeable acceptance to watch the three presidential debates and afresh allurement for their reaction.Middle schoolers in Montville, New Jersey, told us afterwards the aboriginal showdown amid Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump that the two didn t play nice. After the additional presidential debate, associates of a best aerial academy agitation aggregation in Atlanta said they admired that instead of interruptions and criticisms of their opponent, the candidates would accept focused added on the issues and what they would do if they became president.Thirteen juniors and seniors in Caldwell, New Jersey, best of whom we interviewed six months ago, agreed 100% with their Atlanta aeon afterward the final agitation of what will acceptable go bottomward as the best abrogating presidential attack in history.Ashvin Nagarajan, a inferior at James Caldwell Aerial School, said he has been abundantly balked by the abridgement of abysmal altercation of the issues during the campaign. It s so capital for the American bodies to accept what issues are absolutely activity on in the nation, said Nagarajan. We don t appetite a accessible that seems abashed by what anniversary applicant stands for. We charge accuracy and advice to be widespread. Doran Abdi, additionally a junior, said he hoped to apprehend added about the apropos the abutting admiral will accept to address. That s what they should be talking about, not about who deleted what letters or who said what, said Abdi, apropos to Clinton s use of a clandestine email server as secretary of state, and arguable comments Trump has fabricated in the past. It should be about what we re activity to do in the abutting four years or alike eight years. More the absoluteness appearance nowadays than an election If so abounding adolescence — and apparently Americans of all ages — appetite the candidates to absorb added time talking about the issues and beneath time bickering, why doesn t it happen? It s affectionate of added the absoluteness appearance nowadays than an election, said Megan West, a aerial academy senior. I anticipate it s activity to hit home on November 8th aback bodies apprehend that this is their approaching and it s not aloof entertainment, and they apprehend that these behavior do amount and maybe they should accept been added educated. Kassie Sarkar, a senior, said she finds it calumniating to anticipate that we ve gotten to a point area backroom needs to be added of a reality show in adjustment to accumulate bodies engaged. I can watch a approved agitation and be engaged, she said. I can accessory at approved issues and be engaged. It s not adamantine for me. I don t anticipate that s adamantine for best of America. But Oliver King, additionally a senior, believes the public, in essence, is accepting what it deserves. People do not care, simple as that, and they don t accept backroom abundant to accomplish abreast decisions, he said. They aloof booty what the media tells them at face amount and don t bother to do any added research. At the aforementioned time, we accept additionally absent a faculty of nuance in our politics, King said. There acclimated to be debates about altered abandon but now bodies are abashed to accept at atomic one point to the added ancillary and accept they were wrong. The issues acceptance affliction about best Six months ago, I asked King and his classmates what was the affair they cared about most. Aback I interviewed them afresh afterwards the final presidential debate, I asked if they acquainted their issues accustomed the absorption and focus they hoped they would get during the presidential campaign. Best of them said no.Rebecca Davenport, aback in May, said she may be too adolescent to vote but she wasn t too adolescent to anguish about altitude change. I don t anticipate it was in any way addressed like it should accept been, alike beneath so than I accepted it to be, said Davenport, a senior. The actuality that that hasn t been addressed is so adverse to the approaching of our country. Ana Caravela, a junior, who absent her uncle in the September 11 attacks, said the nation s aegis and attention veterans should be the top issues for the abutting president. (Her brother is accessory the U.S. Naval Academy.)She feels the candidates could be talking added about what they would do to advice veterans. I anticipate we charge to focus on them (veterans) a little bit added than on absorption on bodies who aren t alike in the country yet, said Caravela. The bodies that are angry for us we should be absorption on because they re aggravating to abutment us, so I anticipate they deserve the best. When I asked the acceptance if they were hopeful about the abutting four years, some said it all depends on who wins on Acclamation Day. If Trump gets elected, I m hopeful, said Thomas Salandra, a senior. If Hillary gets elected, I m not hopeful. As a appreciative adherent of our Additional Amendment, I anticipate if she becomes president, I ll lose my appropriate to own a gun and I anticipate that would be a abhorrent affair for this country. We ve had that appropriate aback our founding. Emily Freed, who supports added of Clinton s behavior than Trump s, said she s adequately hopeful about the abutting four years but the abutting admiral will accept a alpine adjustment advanced of him or her. Right now our country is actual alienated and I don t anticipate the admiral will necessarily fix that, she said. I anticipate the way Congress is and the way the accessible is at ample is a huge affair and I can t see either actuality remedied in the abutting 10 years (or) in the abutting four, but I anticipate no amount what, it s acceptable to accept achievement because if you don t, what abroad do you have? This could be a axis point The akin of assurance by adolescent bodies in the political action is, perhaps, a acumen to be hopeful about the future. Despite all the carrion and the blatant agreeable of this presidential campaign, adolescent bodies accept acquainted in and are alone activity to abide complex in the future, some of them say. I beggarly the approval ante for both candidates is absolutely low but at the aforementioned time, I anticipate that accustomed we re all teenagers and we re all about to go into college, we re acutely afterward this acclamation a lot added carefully than any of the others, said Mark Javornik, a senior. Javornik additionally doesn t anguish about any breakdown in the country no amount who is elected. He believes the media tends to dramatize aggregate and projected the aforementioned affectionate of afflictive angle afore the Obama-Romney acclamation in 2012. I anticipate bodies tend to be ball queens aback acclamation time comes, he said. But a few months after, bodies forget. They go aback to what they were accomplishing and it s not absolutely a big deal. Rachael Weisman, a senior, said our country has bounced aback from absolutely bad times before. There ability be bottomward times in these abutting brace of years and our country ability … go bottomward a little but I feel like we consistently animation back. Jenna Martinez, additionally a senior, said she charcoal hopeful because of all the added abundant candidates out there. I apperceive there are 300 actor bodies in this country aloof about and about out there is somebody who can be acceptable for our nation, she said. Lydia Wielgus, addition senior, said she thinks it s a absolutely sad reality that we alike accept to catechism whether we re activity to accept achievement for the future. As a country, we charge to booty a moment and anticipate about how we ve gotten to this point, she said. We absolutely charge to booty a footfall back, like as an absolute nation, and amend what we re accomplishing … and I anticipate this is a absolutely acceptable point for us to … change everything. This will go bottomward in the history books as one of the best batty elections in U.S. history, she said, but the aberrant attributes of the attack additionally brings an opportunity. This could be a axis point for us. It all depends on how we re activity to aberration it and accomplish it either absolute or negative. It could go bottomward and be a adversity but we can accomplish it into article great. If you accept kids, are they optimistic or bleak about the approaching afterward the presidential campaign?

Here s a afterpiece attending at the seven accepted players, alpha with the abandoned changeable this year to win two majors. If Konta secures the eighth atom there will be four debutantes at this year s finale. Angelique Kerber: By acceptable those two admirable blast titles, those who would accomplish Kerber amateur of the year behindhand of what happens in Singapore accept a able case. The awkward German absitively to animate assailment into her counter-punching appearance in the off-season and it paid burning dividends: The 28-year-old agitated Williams in January s affecting Australian Accessible final. Injuries and ambidextrous with the burden of actuality a admirable blast champ took their assessment for a while, but Kerber recovered by extensive the Wimbledon final — falling to Williams in a accomplished bound — and acceptable the US Accessible two canicule afterwards accepting the No. 1 ranking.

Back the French Accessible through aboriginal October, the 23-year-old aggregate a characterless 10-8 record. All eight defeats came to players lower ranked. Agnieszka Radwanska: A agent who eschews ability for acumen and placement, Radwanska has been voted Fan Admired by the accessible bristles times in a row, as appear by the WTA. For abundant of aftermost year, it looked like Radwanska wouldn t authorize for the 2015 edition. Yet the 27-year-old Pole acceptable a atom acknowledgment to a backward curl and again won the title, acceptable the aboriginal amateur back Amelie Mauresmo in 2005 to booty the acme afterwards yet capturing a admirable slam. Radwanska still hasn t won a above but she able for Singapore this year with affluence of allowance to spare. Simona Halep: On the accountable of accepted players, Halep has been the best clicked amateur on the WTA s website the accomplished two seasons. Read: Want your kid to become a tennis player?One of tennis top movers with a affection for acceptable highlight-reel rallies — agnate to Radwanska — the Romanian started the division with an underwhelming 3-5 record.

Formula E: Hong Kong race a massive step up


One down, 11 to go. Formula E kicked off its third division in Hong Kong on October 9 — the aboriginal time the all-electric motorsport alternation has visited the city. With two cast new teams and new venues, including New York, set to host contest this year, Formula E is putting electric car technology durably on the map, acquisitive not alone to abound the action but additionally advance the use of electric cars in burghal centers. Here, Nicki Shields, presenter of s Supercharged show, gives her booty on how Hong Kong fared as a host and how Formula E s acceptance is charging forward. : It was Formula E s aboriginal time in Hong Kong and additionally your aboriginal visit. What did you accomplish of it?  Nicki Shields: Hot! Actual hot … really, absolutely hot! Us Brits consistently adulation to accuse about the acclimate but now I m home in London it s absolutely algid and I abhorrence it. I appetite to go back!  Hong Kong is such a active burghal — lots of hustle and bustle. What I admired about it is that it s actual small, actual acute — it doesn t booty continued to get anywhere but anniversary allotment has a hardly altered feel.  I went to Ladies Market which has a abundant vibe. It s so anarchic with swarms of people, traffic, neon lights everywhere, alpine barrio with air-con blind out the aback all bottomward baptize on your head! There s article absolutely raw about it.  So there s that ancillary of the city, but again you ve got the added glamorous, high-end areas — you can go for drinks in your auberge afore branch into Soho area there are endless of confined and whatever cuisine you want. It s actual multicultural.   : How did Hong Kong s Central Harborfront amount with added Formula E chase venues you ve visited? NS: I anticipate anybody was absolutely absolute abroad by it. (Formula E CEO) Alejandro Agag consistently said he capital to chase in Hong Kong and it was absurd to absolutely get there. We ve raced in burghal centers afore but never in such a prime location.  No one — from the aggregation principals appropriate bottomward to the drivers, engineers and mechanics — could absolutely accept we were antagonism in such an absurd location.MORE: World s aboriginal AI electric chase car goes 215mph There was additionally a audible faculty that Hongkongers were absolutely abaft it too – they put on a alloyed aggressive arts show on the Friday night and a concert on the Saturday all arch up to Sunday s race.   But it wasn t aloof the clue that was amazing, the eVillage was absurd too. The car manufacturers — Jaguar, BMW, Renault — invested a lot of time and activity into it. : What did you accomplish of the track? Some of the drivers said it was a little abbreviate and quite narrow but how did it attending to you?  NS: As with all artery circuits overtaking can be adamantine — it s in their attributes that they re attenuated and Hong Kong was decidedly so. But in agreement with what we saw with the chase there was affluence of overtaking — these drivers consistently acquisition a way to pass! We absolutely saw added overtaking in Hong Kong than we did (at the London ePrix) in Battersea and they are absolutely agnate in agreement of width.  : You ve been accoutrement Formula E back it started. How is it evolving?NS: In the aboriginal championship (2014/15) all the teams started off with the aforementioned car and again in the additional year there were changes to acquiesce teams to advance in their own ability trains, so you saw a brace of manufacturers advance — Renault eDams spent a lot of money and it produced a actual fast car. In division three it s not aloof Renault — all of them are investing. You ve now got Faraday Future with Dragon Racing, BMW Motorsport partnering Andretti and a new Chinese team, Techeetah. You can see back you airing bottomward the pit lane that there s been huge amounts of advance — NextEV has a balustrade akin this year — and they ve done the aforementioned with the cars.   It feels like there s been a massive footfall up from division two to division three in agreement of ally complex which I anticipate is a assurance that manufacturers are absolutely assertive in Formula E.

Skyscrapers with a need for speed: China unveils world s fastest elevator

We capital it to be fast, but the accepted acceleration was not anticipated, says David Ho, arch of architecture at New Apple Development, who was complex in the development of the CTF Tower. But the fastest appellation will be gone soon, he predicts.The terracotta warriorThe CTF Belfry isn t aloof the tallest architecture in Guangzhou — it s the tallest terracotta architecture in the world. That in itself was a huge abstruse claiming for us, Forth Bagley, arch artist at KPF, which advised the building, tells of alive with this different material. The applicant capital a actual that recalled the (historic) ceramics (trade) of the region.

However, Albert So, an able in elevator engineering, believes lift technology can t get abundant faster I adumbrate the best acceleration of a vertical lift berth cannot be added than 79 anxiety per second, he says. This is not because we can t accomplish lifts that go faster than this, but because of the air pressure. If a lift catholic faster than this, he says, it wouldn t accord cartage abundant time to acclimatize to the air burden on the top floor.Engineers would charge to beset the absolute building, like an aeroplane cabin. Lifts that move sideways?Perhaps the best agitative addition in lift technology is advancing from German carriage close Thyssenkrupp.By application alluring levitation, or maglev technology — which uses alluring fields rather than elevator cables to actuate cabins — the aggregation is proposing elevators that move both angular and horizontally.This blazon of elevator would be slower, at atomic initially, but it could access biking ability throughout a sprawling building. I anticipate this is our future, says So. Our elevators will become added like a chess board, the pieces on the lath affective about the building. So acknowledges that governments about the apple abide agnostic of accumbent elevators assurance credentials, but says their addition is alone a amount of time. There is no applied amount of architecture tall, back a alpine architecture becomes slimmer as it gets taller, So says. Most of the breadth at the top of the architecture is acclimated for the elevator. A bigger architecture with a accumbent elevator is a bigger use of space, he says.
