Stephen Wiltshire spoke his first words, ‘pencil’ and ‘paper’ at five years old. At the age of eight, the late British Prime Minister Edward Heath commissioned Wiltshire to draw the Salisbury Cathedral.  At 11 years old Wiltshire drew a perfect, intensely detailed picture of the London cityscape after a single helicopter ride. Perhaps it is not surprising that Wiltshire was diagnosed with autism, when he was three years old.

The head of the AFL-CIO has stepped down from the White House’s manufacturing council after President Trump doubled down on his position that violence in Charlottesville was perpetrated by many sides at a press conference Tuesday.

Richard Trumka said in a statement posted on Twitter that he “cannot sit on a council for a President who tolerates bigotry and domestic terrorism,” and called Tuesday’s remarks “the last straw.”

 The statement was jointly issued by Thea Lee, an economist who previously served as deputy chief of staff at the AFL-CIO. She also resigned from the council.

Toyota Shows Off Fuel-Cell Automobile

Hydrogen-powered cars are finally being readied for their Prius moment — at least, that is what promoters of the environmentally friendly technology hope.

Toyota, maker of the Prius, the first hybrid vehicle to achieve mass-market acceptance, on Wednesday unveiled a concept version of a hydrogen fuel-cell car that it plans to begin selling “around 2015,” as the company put it. The bright blue sedan is shaped like a drop of water to emphasize that water is the only substance that hydrogen-powered cars emit from their tailpipes.

The car, which Toyota calls the FCV concept, was one of several vehicles with alternative powertrains to take the spotlight at the Tokyo Motor Show, which opened to reporters on Wednesday. Later in the day, two other carmakers, Honda and Hyundai, were expected to display new fuel-cell vehicles at a preview for the auto show in Los Angeles.

Sandy Hatte Arrested For Kidnapping Infant Grandson 13 Years Ago In Florida, Police Say

A suspicious Missouri school official led police to a woman who allegedly kidnapped her own grandson 13 years ago.

Sandy Hatte, 60, is accused of taking the boy from his Florida home in 2000, when the child was an infant. She recently tried to enroll him in a Livingston County, Mo., school, but an official saw red flags, ABC News reports.

“They had some concerns about an individual who had enrolled a child into school and had some concerns if they were the actual parent,” Livingston County Det. Eric Menconi told the station.

The official was right. Authorities now believe that Hatte kidnapped the boy more than a decade ago while his father was at work. When she tried to send him to the school, she claimed to be his mother, WDAF reports.

Green River Killer Gary Ridgway Offers To Help Find Victims; Police Wary (VIDEO)

Police who have dealt with serial killer Gary Ridgway say it’s worth continuing the search for his missing victims after Ridgway suggested he could help find them, but add the Green River Killer will “play games” and lie.

Ridgway has said he might be able to locate the bodies of more women he killed. Ridgway told KOMO () that the Green River Task Force mostly kept him in a van in 2003 when he directed them to sites in the Seattle area where he dumped bodies in the 1980s. He’d like to revisit every site on foot and says he could have had as many as 80 victims.

Ridgway was convicted of killing 49 women and authorities say it’s possible there are more victims. But King County Sheriff John Urquhart warns that Ridgway can’t be trusted.

This Underwater Airplane Flies Through The Ocean Unlike Any Submarine Before It

It all started with a little crab.

While conducting tests with a conventional submersible that crawled on the bottom of the sea, ocean engineer Graham Hawkes came nose to nose with a little crustacean that was poised to fight the underwater machine.

“I remember stopping and laughing,” Hawkes told The Huffington Post. “But I thought, ‘That crab has got it all wrong. These fish are moving in three dimensions. This guy is scurrying along the bottom. So am I. We’ve both got it wrong.'”

Inspired by the movement of fish, Hawkes designed and built the DeepFlight Super Falcon, a submarine that flies through the water like an airplane, instead of taking on water to sink itself. Similar to how hot-air balloons release weights to fly up, traditional submarines have compartments that fill with water to sink down.

Hawkes started a company out of his garage to create the DeepFlight Super Falcon in 1995. Today, Hawkes’ dream has become a reality. “What we’re doing is really, really obvious,” Hawkes said. “There’s nothing that clever about it. We actually build a thing that has wings, we build up speed, and it just flies underwater.”

Nicholas Pinto, 13, Brought In $100,000 With Scooter Wheel Company

What were you doing at thirteen years old? Probably nothing, maybe some sports.

But not Nicholas Pinto. The 13-year-old from Cranford, N.J., last year turned his own desire for a better scooter wheel into a booming international entity, according to the Cranford Patch.

Frustrated by how the wheels of his scooter were always breaking, Pinto one day decided to create his own design. After receiving a $2,000 loan from his parents, he sent his designs to a California manufacturer, who helped him start producing his LB Scoots (“Little Boy” Scoots).

Then people started buying the wheels, and in just his first year, the eighth grader has already made $100,000 in sales, according to nj.com.

Pinto eventually built his own website and showed off his new wheels at skate parks and via advertising at competitions, according to Fox News. It wasn’t long until scooter enthusiasts around the world were trying to get their hands on Pinto’s durable wheels. He even received orders from Australia, Pinto told Fox.

How to Curb Your Inner Control Freak

As an overachieving kid, I was lauded for my top grades, my responsible and well-behaved nature. I succeeded in a rigorous private school, then went on to graduate Phi Beta Kappa from a reputable college. I showed all the markings of someone who would work hard, stay focused and no doubt make something of herself.

I also spent a lot of my childhood with inexplicable stomachaches, generalized anxiety that peaked in a series of panic attacks in my 20s, and varying degrees of self loathing. It’s really, really hard for me to delegate. I don’t like unassigned seating or amusement park rides. And I have a difficult time being in a car and not driving.

That’s because there’s a dark side to being an achiever: I’m a control freak. I like to know what will or won’t happen. I try to contain, predict, analyze and understand things more than I possibly can. And I know it’s a losing game. None of us controls how life unfolds. You think you know it, but if you did, you wouldn’t have the expectation and disappointment when you’re reminded again and again that you don’t.
