An Ohio sophomore heard the news that a family friend was bullied so bad on Valentine’s Day she came home in tears. Without hesitation, he set out to make her smile.
Aislinn Bowermaster, 12, baked holiday treats to handout to her peers at East Clinton Middle School in Leescreek. It’s a facet of Aislinn’s “old soul” character. Those close to describe a young girl who is kind, thoughtful and gentle.
But by the end of the day, when she hadn’t received anything in return, she was devastated. And on the bus ride home, a girl confronted the visibly distraught Aislinn and issued her cruel reasoning for why no one was her Valentine.
Aislinn’s mom, now crying herself, phoned best friend Abby Howell. “My child has asked me to never send her to school on Valentine’s Day again,” she said.
After the call, Howell discussed the situation with her stepson, Isaiah Greiner. He and Aislinn have been friends for three years. Isaiah said he was willing to do anything to make her smile and the 15-year-old decided he’d visit her at school.
“I want to go there and show her she deserves it,” Isaiah said, who tracked down Aislinn at lunch and delivered her roses, a giant teddy bear, a card and chocolate in front of the whole school.
The note inside the card said: “Happy Valentine’s Day. Always remember how pretty you are.”
This is a flight characterization test of Lockheed Martin's Miniature Hit-to-kill (MHTK) interceptor at White Sands Missile Range. The MHTK is designed to be small in size, yet able to defeat rockets, mortars and artillery targets through kinetic energy at ranges greatly exceeding those of current systems.
The most detailed model of the universe ever created has been unveiled by computer scientists.
Dubbed 'Illustris: The Next Generation', or IllustrisTNG for short, the computer model boasts never-before-seen levels of details about the forces at work in the universe.
Scientists say the detail and scale provided by the advanced computer simulation has enabled them to observe how galaxies form, evolve, grow, and trigger the creation of new stars over 13 billion years.
They have already used it to provide new insights into how black holes influence the distribution of dark matter, how heavy elements are produced and distributed, and where magnetic fields originate.
A teenage boy with Down's Syndrome made an incredible basketball trickshot to cheering crowds at his school - and a member of the Harlem Globetrotters.
James Meiergerd's special moment was captured on camera and shows just how pleased he was in the heartwarming moment.

As British Prime Minister Theresa May yesterday touched down in Wuhan to start her three-day visit in China, the city's workers had just completed an engineering task that would be unimaginable to the West.
They managed to build a massive motorway in the middle of the city and above China's busiest railway line - without interrupting any traffic.
Part of the Changqing Road Overpass, in downtown Wuhan, was rotated for nearly 90 degrees during the wee hours to connect with the other parts of the flyover located at either side of the railway.
